Optimist or Pessimist?

This short story illustrates how different people can look at things in different ways. 

Many years ago two salesmen were sent by a British shoe manufacturer to a far away land to investigate and report back on the market potential there.

The first salesman reported back, “There is no potential here – nobody wears shoes.”

The second salesman reported back, “There is massive potential here – everyone needs shoes.”
