You’re seeing so much news about positivity on the media for a reason – people are finally understanding the true power of it! Do you consider yourself an optimist or a pessimist?
Being optimistic might sound like a grandma term to you and you might even think that it isn’t worth anything, but oh boy would you be wrong! You might even go as far as saying that positivity is the key to a happy life. It truly is worth more than any amount of money, cars, or fancy smartphones. Being an optimistic person makes you much more appealing and makes other people feel comfortable. By being optimistic you might completely turn around someone’s day, or even a few people’s!
Optimism is great for many different reasons and it all around makes life more enjoyable for you and everyone around you. It could very well be the answer to changing the world! However, the opposite is also true: pessimism is extremely negative, but somehow never leaves our minds. Many people argue whether it is a natural occurrence or a personality flaw, but we do know one thing for sure – it itself sucks… a lot. Nobody likes to be around someone who is constantly whining and complaining about how hard life is or how they’ve been mistreated, unfairly done, or wronged in any of the slightest ways. It might not be politically correct to admit, but we all know it’s true – Nobody likes a negative nelly, and even the nelly himself is tortured by a negative perception! Our perception makes up our entire reality – which means a negative perception inevitably equals a negative life.
If you think you might qualify as a negative person – and that’s most of us – it is never too late to change your attitude. With practice and the willingness to come out of your comfort zone and learn, you can completely transform your life.
So – are you an optimist or a pessimist?
