Did you know that having an optimistic outlook on life can positively affect your mental and physical health?
This is why we’re naturally drawn to optimism. We feel good when we hear a heart-warming story. We gravitate towards optimistic people and enjoy their company. Optimism is contagious, and if we’re exposed to it, we become optimistic ourselves.
And when we’re optimistic, we’re hopeful and confident, which in turn increases our productivity, creativity, and inspiration.
It’s optimism, rather than skepticism, which will lead us through the challenges we’re collectively facing to a future that is bright.
Not only is positive thinking linked to a host of health benefits, it can also make you more resilient.
Alex Lickerman explains how being optimistic can have a positive impact on your performance, and shares some insight on how you should approach learning optimism.
As soon as we realize that there is a difference between right now and what might happen next, we can move ourselves to the posture of possibility, to the self-fulfilling engine of optimism.
