Maintaining a Positive Attitude When the Going Gets Tough


The optimist's advantage includes creating habits to program your success and build resilience in this challenging world.

Now more than ever, mastering the emotional intelligence skill of optimism can help you get more done, help you face each day with more excitement and enthusiasm, reduce stress, motivate your team, inspire others and be the type of person that others enjoy being around. Optimism is like a muscle - it grows with use and can help you effectively navigate these unprecedented times to be a resilient and impactful leader in your sphere of influence. Others in our lives are more motivated by positivity and confidence and it's also much easier to instill an inspiring vision when coming from a place of optimism. Optimists are higher performing at work, bring out the best in those they lead, are more productive, typically have better health and are able to better engage their teams. And these benefits apply to our impact on friends and family too.
