A Glass of Water

TRANSKRIP
A psychologist walked into a room while teaching stress management to an audience.
As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected that they’d be asked, “is this glass half empty or half full?
But instead, with a smile on her face, she asked: “How heavy do you think this glass of water is?”
People called out 8 oz. , 16 oz. , 20 oz.
She replied, “The weight of this glass doesn’t matter.
It all depends on how long I hold it.
If I hold it for just a minute, it’s not a problem.
The glass still feels light.
If I hold it for an hour, ooh I’ll probably have an ache in my arm.
The glass will feel heavy.
And if I hold it for an entire day, my arm will start feel numb and paralyzed.
The glass would feel unbearable.
The weight of the glass never changes, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.
The stresses and worries in life are like a glass of water.
If you think about them for a while – nothing happens.
If think about them for a bit longer they begin to hurt.
And if you think about them all day long, then you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.
So remember to put the glass down.

This is a very powerful story with a very important lesson.
See – most of the personal issues that you’re facing – such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem
come about because of the types of thoughts you have in your head.
If you’re someone who thinks to themselves “I’m not good enough” over and over again throughout the day without even noticing it
that’s when you start to develop problems like low self-esteem and anxiety.
And it’s not that these thoughts appear just a couple dozen times throughout the day –
the truth of the matter is you’re probably thinking these thoughts hundreds of times over and over again all day long without even noticing it.
You need to learn to control how long you think about these thoughts –
you need to learn to put the glass of water down.
And this is a skill set that can be acquired by meditating.
Which I suggest you to really consider doing.
I will link to a playlist in the description box below that will teach you more about how to meditate and it’s other benefits.

TERJEMAHAN
A psychologist walked into a room while teaching stress management to an audience.
Seorang psikolog masuk ke dalam ruangan ketika mengajar pengelolaan stress di hadapan audiens.

As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected that they’d be asked, “is this glass half empty or half full?”
Ketika ia mengangkat segelas air putih, semua orang menduga bahwa mereka akan ditanya “apakah gelas ini setengah kosong atau setengah penuh?”

But instead, with a smile on her face, she asked: “How heavy do you think this glass of water is?”
Tapi alih-alih, dengan tersenyum, ia bertanya: “Seberapa berat menurut anda segelas air ini?”

People called out 8 oz. , 16 oz. , 20 oz.
Orang-orang menjawab 8 ons, 16 ons, 20 ons
Catatan: 1 oz setara 0.03 kilogram

She replied, “The weight of this glass doesn’t matter.
Dia menjawab, “Berat gelas ini tidak penting.

It all depends on how long I hold it.
Semuanya tergantung berapa lama saya memegangnya.

If I hold it for just a minute, it’s not a problem.
Jika saya memegangnya hanya selama satu menit, tidak masalah.

The glass still feels light.
Gelasnya masih terasa ringan.

If I hold it for an hour, ooh I’ll probably have an ache in my arm.
Jika saya memegangnya selama satu jam, oh lengan saya mungkin akan kesakitan.

The glass will feel heavy.
Gelasnya akan terasa berat.

And if I hold it for an entire day, my arm will start feel numb and paralyzed.
Dan jika saya memegangnya sehari penuh, lengan saya akan mulai terasa mati rasa dan lumpuh.

The glass would feel unbearable.
Gelasnya akan terasa tidak bisa ditahan lagi.

The weight of the glass never changes, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.
Berat gelasnya tidak pernah berganti, tetap semakin lama saya memegangnya, semakin berat rasanya.

The stresses and worries in life are like a glass of water.
Stress dan kekhawatiran dalam hidup itu seperti segelas air.

If you think about them for a while – nothing happens.
Jika anda memikirkannya sebentar – tidak ada yang akan terjadi.

If think about them for a bit longer they begin to hurt.
Jika anda memikirkannya lebih lama, ia mulai terasa sakit.

And if you think about them all day long, then you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.
Dan jika anda memikirkannya seharian, anda akan merasa lumpuh – tidak mampu melakukan apa-apa.

So remember to put the glass down. – Jimmy Harmon
Jadi ingatlah untuk meletakkan gelasnya. – Jimmy Harmon

This is a very powerful story with a very important lesson.
Ini adalah sebuah kisah yang sangat kuat dengan pelajaran yang sangat penting.

See – most of the personal issues that you’re facing – such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem
come about because of the types of thoughts you have in your head.
Sebagian besar dari masalah pribadi yang anda hadapi – seperti kegelisahan, depresi, percaya diri yang rendah muncul karena tipe pemikiran yang anda miliki di kepala anda.

If you’re someone who thinks to themselves “I’m not good enough” over and over again throughout the day without even noticing it
Jika anda adalah orang yang berpikir pada diri mereka sendiri “Saya tidak cukup baik” terus menerus sepanjang hari tanpa memperhatikannya

that’s when you start to develop problems like low self-esteem and anxiety.
itulah saat anda mulai menciptakan masalah seperti rasa percaya diri yang rendah dan kegelisahan.

And it’s not that these thoughts appear just a couple dozen times throughout the day –
Dan bukannya pemikiran-pemikiran ini muncul berkali-kali sepanjang hari –

the truth of the matter is you’re probably thinking these thoughts hundreds of times over and over again all day long without even noticing it.
faktanya anda mungkin memikirkan hal ini ratusan kali secara terus menerus seharian bahkan tanpa memperhatikannya.

You need to learn to control how long you think about these thoughts –
Anda perlu belajar mengendalikan berapa lama anda memikirkan hal-hal ini –

you need to learn to put the glass of water down.
anda perlu belajara untuk meletakkan gelasnya.

And this is a skill set that can be acquired by meditating.
Dan ini adalah keterampilan yang bisa diraih dengan meditasi

Which I suggest you to really consider doing.
