Monday, April 25, 2016 – The Optimist and the Pessimist

Once upon a time there were twin boys. One was an optimist and the other was a pessimist. One day scientists and psychologists decided to conduct an experiment on the twins. The pessimist was placed a room filled with every type of toy and game imaginable. The optimist was placed in a room full of shit and a shovel.

During the observation they noticed the pessimist twin kicked the toys, broke the games and spent the time sulking alone in a corner. The optimist began to dig through the shit. When the scientists and doctors opened the door to the pessimist’s room they asked “Why did you break the toys and sit in the corner?” He frowned and said, “There is no one to play with.” When they opened the door to the optimist’s room, they asked “Why are digging through all of this shit?” He smiled and replied “With this much shit there has got to be a pony somewhere.”

Your choice today and everyday. Do you want to sit in the corner and sulk and complain? Or do you want to continue to dig and look for the pony?

  2. The first time I heard this story was at the first day of the first faculty in-service at the brand new, first year, yet unfinished high school in THE Woodlands called J. L. McCullough High School.
