Between the optimist and the pessimist,
the difference is droll.
The optimist sees the doughnut;
the pessimist the hole!
I have been giving some thought lately to optimism
and pessimism. Basically, these are attitudes
— attitudes that shape and formulate our entire
existence. I mean, have you ever met a happy pessimist? Of course not.
In short, our optimism or pessimism is this:
The way we interpret the past
The way we experience and view the present
The way we imagine the future
Have you given much thought about how
whether you are an optimist or a pessimist,
affects you business, organization or school?
Have you thought about how it affects you personally?
And what about the team you are a part of?
What is optimism? It is the belief that things
in our past were good for us, even if that means
they were hard and taught us lessons.
It is also the belief that things will be better in the future.
Here are some contrasts between optimism and pessimism and how they affect us:
Optimism breathes life into you each day.
Pessimism drains you.
Optimism helps you to take needed risks.
Pessimism plays it safe and never accomplishes much.
Optimism improves those around you.
Pessimism drags them down.
Optimism inspires people to great heights.
Pessimism deflates people to new lows.
There is only one way that optimism and
pessimism are the same, and that is that
they are both self-fulfilling. If you are an
optimist, you will generally find that good
things happen to you. And if you are a
pessimist,you will find yourself in the
not-so-good situations more often than not.
So can a person just become an optimist?
Yes! We can choose to look at the world
any way we want to. We can choose to
look at the world and think the worst,
or we can tell ourselves the good things
about each situation. As you find yourself
looking at your enterprise, begin to view it
through the eyes of an optimist, and you
will reap the rewards listed above,
and so will the people around you.
There are tremendous benefits to being an optimist,
as stated above. But there are some pessimists out there
who will say, But that isn't realistic. I say, Who cares?
If things go awry, at least I have spent my time
beforehand enjoying life
and not worrying about it. And, being an optimist,
I would view the negative situation as an opportunity
to grow and learn. So I can even look forward to
my failures because they will be steppingstones
and learning tools to be applied to my future success.
Have you ever met a successful pessimist?
Become an optimist, and see your world
change before your eyes!
Have a blessed day!
