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!
