i am an optimist. for me keeping a positive attitude and outlook is the way to manifest positive outcomes in my life. 10% of life is determined by what happens to you, the other 90% is how you react to it.

but thats just me.

i find it important to remain on-guard because if you fall to the delusions that everything is OK then you will be blindside by what to come but if you believe "what can go-wrong will go-wrong" then you can take steps to preventing it

I try very hard to be positive and optimistic but I usually find myself expecting the worse while hoping for the best.

This has been happening for the past few years now.

I am consciously optimistic, prefering it over pessimism cuz it makes more sense. Sometimes I slip with the tongue though.

Just look at the benefits of situations.

I try to turn failure into success by learning from it and modifying behaviour.

When shit get's too tough, I remember that life is short (lol).

I am unflinchingly optimistic and sometimes on the behalf of others around me, I'm laughing at people that think optimism somehow negates you from proper planning for the unexpected. It's not a lack of optimism that causes one to buy some insurance and the like, that's just being realistic.

If people envision bad situations and prepare for them, then they may happen.

If people envision good situations and prepare for them, it is possible to ward off the bad and make that good happen.

You put in your action, but the outcome is not up to you; you could only wait and receive whatever is in store.

But an optimistic mind is better than the opposite.

Yeah I hate when people bring their pessimism into the room and completely kill the mood.
