Although there might be some individuals who just seem more optimistic or positive, the truth is that we can all learn to practice optimism and weave some of the tenants into our life. The first element that was discussed includes shifting your perspective that sees things as permanent to seeing things as temporary. The second element is seeing events and painful experiences as singular, not pervasive.The last element of learning optimism is not taking things personally. Whether it’s insecurity or ego, when we take all things personally we bear the weight of other people’s judgments or opinions on our shoulder. We must not attach our own ego to all experiences.
LESSONS: Optimism can be learned and if you practice certain elements of optimism routinely, you can weave a more optimistic perspective into your world. Remember, not everything is permanent or pervasive, and you can weave in more hopeful thoughts when these ways of thinking are challenged. Don’t take things personally. Remind yourself that not all choices or decisions are about YOU.
