An empowering, constructive attitude that creates conditions
for success by focusing and acting on possibilities and opportunities.
~ Max More
The number one factor influencing resilience is a positive or optimistic view of yourself and confidence in your strengths and abilities. I want to be clear. When I talk of optimism I do not mean that rose-colored glasses, Pollyannaish way of looking at the world. Optimists see tragedy just fine. Optimists know bad things happen. But what separates optimists from their pessimistic brothers and sisters is how they move forward in their thinking and actions relative to those events.
Much of the way we view the world has been shaped by the messages we received as children. (Habits that serve us; habits that don’t serve us. – Aristotle) So, let me ask: Do you view yourself as an optimist or a pessimist? Your comments are most appreciated!
Have a joyful day everyone. And remember to live a flourishing life.
