Episode #33: Learn to Be More Optimistic

When you’re biking a narrow trail on the edge of a cliff, you’re supposed to keep your eyes on the trail. Why? Because your bike will go where you’re looking. If you want to stay on the trail, look at the trail. Optimism is the same thing! Focus on what you want to happen, not the bad things that might happen, and you’re more likely to get them. 

Just this week I came up against an unexpected obstacle, and I could’ve had a little temper tantrum and complained that “this kind of thing always happens to me!”. Honestly, I was annoyed and embarrassed about it all, but rather than throw myself off the cliff I chose to look for the positive side of the situation. I stayed on the trail heading towards my goal.

In today’s episode I’m sharing everything about optimism. Listen in to learn how it influences the path of your life, and how you can learn to be more optimistic starting today.
