Have you ever been through a situation where you are out in the scorching heat feeling exhausted and thirsty and not much water left in your bottle? Well, probably we all have gone through situations like this, or at least similar. So what would be our immediate reaction? Be honest with your answers.
There are two probable answers for the question… either we will feel the water left is not sufficient enough to quench the thirst(which the majority of us will think) or a handful of us will think ‘ thank god, at least we can quench our thirst for a while and finish our work till we get more’.

What do you think, which reaction is going to help you out of the situation? No denying the fact…obviously the second one. Isn’t it a more positive outlook towards life?
