“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
It can turn a situation that looks negative or bleak into an opportunity or something to learn from.
It can replace the draining thoughts of pessimism with something that will give you more energy and enthusiasm again.
And it can help you to jump over obstacles, to keep moving when you fall or stumble and to not give up just because you have had a couple of temporary setbacks.
So not just adding more of it to your own life but to the lives of the people in your world too is good idea.
Because you tend to get back what you give in the long run. And in the short run, well, you get to enjoy the smiles when you spread the optimism.
And you’ll boost your own self-esteem when you feel you are doing the right thing.
