Optimism

“Optimist: someone who figures taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster; it’s more like a cha-cha.”

No matter how talented, how prepared, or how much help you have, you will fail at times.  You may fail often.  To achieve your potential, you must maintain an optimistic outlook and see these failures for what they are:  speed bumps along the way to your achievements.  How can you maintain your optimism?  Start by removing negative influences from your mental diet:  negative people, books, TV, movies, internet.  Instead, surround yourself with positive influencers:  positive people, books, TV, movies, internet… this blog!  The choice is yours.  If you choose optimism, you’ll find that your inevitable failures will be viewed simply as learning events in the dance of life, equipping you for better performance and results in the future.  Cha-cha-cha!
