Optimism – It’s Your Choice! Thoughts for January 10, 2015

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

Helen Keller


Noun    hopefulness and confidence about the future or the successful outcome of something.

Are you optimistic?


One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn’t pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself.

Lucille Ball


What is it going to take to get you to be optimistic? It shouldn’t take anything really, it is an internal thing. People become what they think that they are. If you think you are stuck, then you are going to be stuck. If you think that you can overcome current circumstances, then you will overcome.

But what about the homeless guy that is broke, has nowhere to live and doesn’t believe that things will get better?

Well, who are we to say how that person feels inside? All we can really talk about is our own feelings, our own circumstances. Watch this video and try to tell me that optimism does not exist!


Be Optimistic!

Man in recovery from everything, looking for a little help, inspiration and direction.... Have spent the last 25 years working in big business, getting lost in all the chaos, not feeling like what I did mattered. By no means am I a professional writer nor do I even think I am that good, but it is something I love to do. Getting lost in a world of words, even for just a little while is why I started my blogs. In reality, at the age of 49 I am trying to find my voice. To find my passion. Maybe starting a little late, but better late than never. I write for me, I enjoy reading other's thoughts very much as well and look forward to the day that I can hold an extended, intelligent, meaningful conversation with YOU View all posts by joatmon14
