I am an optimist. Both by nature and by nurture. It enables me to see the good in people and in situations. It helps me see solutions and silver linings. And it continuously contributes to my happiness. Like pizza. Or laughing gas.
An optimist is hopeful and confident about the future and the potential for success. An optimist is not an eye doctor. (But an eye doctor can be an optimist.)
Optimism vs Pessimism
Optimism is the precious metal of mindsets.
While pessimism is useless.
It’s a dead end.
Never yield to pessimism.
There is no value in being pessimistic about humans.
There is no need to be pessimistic about our economy.
Or the state of humanity.
Or your future.
These are all things that we can influence.
Humans confront challenges and we respond.
We change things for the better
Errors get corrected.
New solutions are created.
New possibilities are created.
Humans always seek better answers and better outcomes.
We believe in happy endings. Like Walt Disney. And Robert Kraft.
And we make them come true.
