Optimism might seem obvious, but it’s not all “Pollyanna” “glass half full” silliness.  We’ll look at the three big components that make up Optimism, as I see it.

Topics discussed in this episode: 

  • Intentional Optimism - a refresher [3:22]
    • Optimistic - hopeful, positive, proactive
    • Present - having a sense of wonder, generous, kind/open
    • Courageous - lead, adventure, resilient
    • Energetic - industrious, energetic and life-focused
    • Wise - understanding, words, respect
    • Intentional - sense of purpose, plan, grow
  • What is Optimism? [3:30]
    • Hope
    • Positivity
    • Proactivity

Resources mentioned in this episode: 

Now what? 

  • Start looking for the positives - “flip the script.” [16:50]
  • Identify areas where you need to prepare for something. [17:40]
  • Where are you procrastinating? Find out why - this is where growth begins. [17:50]
