“Never attempt to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and annoys the pig”
This is a short book but packed full of insight. Rath ask how full is your bucket? Not in the sense of how much you have to do but in the sense of how much has been poured into you. How many people are trying to build you up? Studies show that for every 5 moments of building you up it only takes 1 moment to bring you back down. That means we need to start pouring into others a lot more than what we are doing. So are you a giver or a taker?
It is proven that people with more positive emotions live longer than people with more negative emotions. If research shows that focusing on the negative has negative effects why do we keep doing it? When a child brings home a report card are we more inclined to compliment the high marks or focus solely on the low marks?
