Learning to be an Optimist


Let’s get real for a moment.

There are severe consequences of adopting a pessimistic perspective. For example, research shows:

  • Pessimists do not perform as well in life, sport and business as optimists.
  • Pessimism stops us professionally.
  • Pessimism damages relationships and our ability to work as a team.
  • Pessimism harms us emotionally and physically.

There are so many more reasons to CHOOSE to be optimistic. Dr. Marty Seligman, the “father” of the field of positive psychology, calls this concept “learned optimism.”

In this video, I share HOW to learn to be an optimist and see your glass has half full, not as half empty.

Work to adopt an optimistic perspective. Especially in times of difficulty, train yourself to see the silver lining.

There is always another perspective to your problems, difficulties and the adversity you are experiencing right now. Look at your glass as half full, not as half empty.
