A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
Rather than searching for everything that could go wrong or that might not work out in any given situation, look instead for the things that could go right and might work out well. Approaching an opportunity with an optimistic eye and positive outlook increases your chances of success because you aren’t constantly worried about when something will go wrong. A given situation is exactly what you make of it. You decide– is it a difficulty or an opportunity? (Hint: opportunity!)
Today’s message for optimism is brought to you by Contemporaries.
