Overpower Life's Knockouts with a Punch of Postivity--How OPTIMISM Can Springboard You to a Better Tomorrow
LET’S FACE IT, no matter how much you might plan for a rainy day, 2020 has been a tsunami! Sometimes life hits you with a powerful punch when you least expect it—and often with more than one blow. It can be a crisis of health, the economy, an accident, or a personal tragedy (or all four at once).
The good news is that developing optimism can overpower our inherent inclination to focus on the negative side of challenges and pitfalls. Optimism can turn gloom into grit, pain into persistence, fear into fortitude, and defeat into an indefatigable spirit. In Optimists Always Win, author, corporate trainer, and unabashed optimist Kimberly S. Reed reveals her 10 Discouragement Eliminators, plus her foolproof plan for staying optimistic no matter what depths of negativity or chaos is happening around you (or to you).
Reflective exercises, self-assessments, helpful tips, and activities will show you that optimism is a learned skill and a choice that gives you the ability to positively interpret and react to life’s events. Optimism allows you to evolve your thought process, better your situation, and put your hope in creating a better tomorrow.
