What is the foundation of your thoughts and actions? If it’s mostly negative, you’ll likely have trouble getting stuff done. But with optimism, not only do you smooth the path for yourself - in many ways you smooth the path for people around you as well. And you open the door to amazingly creative solutions.
My brother maintained an optimistic outlook up to the last days of his life. He is a major inspiration for me. Optimism has generated a fountain of ideas in me. I’m hoping these posts inspire you to optimism, as well.
