It’s as simple as that. What else is there? If you can choose happiness, progress, joy, and growth, or whatever else comes along instead, what will you choose?
It takes an optimistic person to be willing to take the most critical risks in life. Leaps of faith are pathways to some of the most extraordinary highs in life.
To live a positive life isn’t necessarily to live a life of nothing but happiness and positive emotions. Hardship and struggle are a natural part of the process.
In other words, we have a natural talent for negative thinking, but that doesn’t mean we’re bound to be unhappy.
This form of optimism relies on faith in people. When you see the people around you as generally good, you are more likely to treat them better.
No longer synonymous with defeat, many now treat failure as an essential component of learning and progress.
