1. Optimists Jump In And Solve Problems, Even When The Answer Is Not Obvious
People love to talk about their problems and can often prevent themselves from moving forward because they are too consumed with analyzing them versus moving past them. Optimists are oriented towards solving their problems. Sure, everyone gets stuck now and then, worrying about the things they can’t change, but optimists always find a way to move beyond the seemingly impossible.
2. Optimists Are Flexible
Because optimistic people focus on finding a solution versus dwelling on the problem, they bounce back more quickly from setbacks and know how to be reliant. Setbacks are only temporary and for them, overcoming difficulties is a necessary part of life.
3. Possibilities Are Abundant
Everyone has their own world view but optimists tend to recognize this more readily and look through other people’s “glasses.” They are open to anything new and avoid stereotypes.
4. Who Doesn’t Want To Be In A Good Mood More Often?
Positive thinkers spend more time in a good mood. This certainly doesn’t mean optimists never feel discouraged, frustrated or overwhelmed but they have the ability to regain their composure and positive state of mind more quickly. They reflect on their failures and defeats as temporary and passing making them less likely to give up on their goals.
5. Optimism Affects The Senses
Positive people are more creative, attentive, and have better developed vision and hearing. PS. It’s been proven…optimists live longer!
