Are you an “Optimist” or a “Realist” who is optimistic?
It makes a difference.
Studies have shown that Optimists don’t live as long and Optimistic Realists.
Being blindly optimistic today can lead to massive disappointment and stress. There is too much noise in the world trying to bring you down.
When you choose to be an optimistic Realist, you look at the world with a much clearer lens. Occasionally you will be surprised by an outcome. You will rarely be disappointed.
I think it’s better to be surprised occasionally than constantly worried. How about you?
