Optimism is: Hopefulness and confidence about the future or the successful outcome of something

Its a picture of a guy jumping off a building and looking happy about it. The joke being that he was happy that he hadnt already fallen off the building; its about the folly of optimism and optimists. Still having humor in his eyes he says, At least I didnt fall off yesterdaaaaaa. And that the whole point. An optimist always sees the best in every situation no matter what the circumstances are.Rev.

“Optimists explain positive events as having happened because of them (internal). They also see them as evidence that more positive things will happen in the future (stable), and in other areas of their lives (global). Conversely, they see negative events as not being their fault (external). They also see them as being flukes (isolated) that have nothing to do with other areas of their lives or future events (local).” “Pessimists think in the opposite way. They believe that negative events are caused by them (internal). They believe that one mistake means more will come (stable), and mistakes in other areas of life are inevitable (global), because they are the cause. They see positive events as flukes (local) that are caused by things outside their control (external) and probably won’t happen again (unstable).”
Being optimistic has many benefits. Optimists tend to be: Happier Healthier More popular More successful

Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out. Vaclav Havel One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesnt pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself. Lucille Ball
Optimism can be simply defined as a positiveMORE QUOTES attitude. It involves expecting good things to happen. It is a fact that there is immense power in positive thinking. It is very important to be optimistic as it is said that optimistic people generally live better, happier more fulfilled lives.

THE OPTIMIST’S WORLD VIEW • All possibilities exist in the world. • Every problem has a solution. If you don’t look for it , you won’t find it. • Because of the belief that every problem has a solution, new and creative strategies are often tried. • Success is expected. • The world is neither fair nor unfair. It simply is. • While truly bad things can happen, they tend not to happen in your personal world. On the occasion that they do, the experience is ultimately viewed as an opportunity to learn and grow. • Optimistic beliefs will help create many more positive outcomes in life because they help you to interpret events realistically. • Success is viewed as a result of effort, persistence, and ability.
