Ever meet someone who’s always optimistic? Even to the point that they can’t see any red lights going off in front of them? And no matter what you say to them, they respond with the fact that the universe will provide for them….even though they don’t have enough money to feed themselves. This is an instance where you can have too much of a good thing.
I’m also not saying that we need to be pessimistic about everything. Also, I do believe that we have opportunities where we are provided for, however, we also do need to be realistic about our situations.
This is where realistic optimism comes in. It is the understanding that there is adversity in your life; be that in your relationships, finances, health, etc. and at the same time, also being optimistic about what’s going on.
That is to say that, you do have the power to change your circumstances. And, if you’re really stuck and can’t change your exact circumstances this moments, you can change the way you think, look and feel about them so that you will take different actions that will lead to different outcomes later on.
