The most boiled down example of mindset is the question “Is the Glass half full? or half empty?” Mindset is how we CHOOSE to interpret the events around us. Why is our mindset so important? Robert Greene explains why in this quote.
We focus on either the beautiful Gothic architecture or the annoying tourist. We, with our mind-set, can make people respond to us in a friendly or unfriendly manner, depending on our anxiety or openness. We shape much of the reality that we perceive, dictated by our moods and emotions.”-Robert Greene (pg.212)
