|The Proven Benefits of Optimism
Being optimistic does not consist in seeing things in a blind and blissful manner but instead from their most favorable angle. It is all the more in your interest to be optimistic since you will derive many advantages for your body and soul.
See your glass half full
Launching a project or seeing a situation from its most favorable angle does not mean that you are unaware of all the positive and negative directions this project or situation can lead you to. It simply means that you have resolutely chosen to see a given situation from its most positive angle.
By merely seeing things in a positive light, you increase your motivation, your dynamism and your chances of success.
As time goes by, you progressively become more enthusiastic. What is great is that your self-confidence grows as your chances of success increase! The reason is that you tackle any situation with more boldness. As a result, your odds of succeeding keep increasing.
Whereas tackling any situation with fear of failure, tying yourself up in knots in the face of the unknown, results in decreasing a big part of your chances of success.
If you are realistically optimistic, as is recommended here, if you do not delay and take action with conviction and if you put a lot of yourself into your actions, you can only go from one success to the other!
A profusion of advantages
This attitude, which I call optimistic-realistic, has proven its efficiency and has a real influence on your body and mind.
This form of optimism strengthens your body and reinforces your willpower, which has a positive impact on your psyche since it rids you of a great many negative emotions such as guilt, lack of self-esteem, underestimation of your personal abilities, fear of failure…
Adopting this optimistic state of mind will cause failures to be reduced. You progressively get rid of them because success attracts success. Being bold and doing things with more conviction creates a spiral of success that feeds on itself and generates a positive dynamic.
This resurgence of self-confidence brought by an optimistic attitude – especially if it rewards you with success – enables you to get rid of stress and reduce the impact stressful situations have on your mind and body.
You will communicate more easily and you will find it more and more easy to convince people that they should help you or support you as you implement your projects or face difficulties.
Repercussions on your health
There is another benefit to being optimistic: it leads to a better state of mind. It is proven that optimistic people have a better state of mind than pessimistic people.
A more optimistic state of mind reinforces your immune system. It has been observed that pessimistic people have poorer health due to their low morale.
Here are the other advantages of being optimistic: great joie-de-vivre, better social life, greater stamina and increased life expectancy.
Optimism, a complete “sport”
For all these reasons, it is recommended that you be optimistic in a realistic manner. Do not refuse to see the drawbacks of a specific situation. Instead, tackle it in a positive way.
In a way, optimism can be considered as a complete “sport” since it requires the total involvement of your body and mind, which influence each other – generating common and mutual benefits.
So, take the plunge without hesitating and follow the path leading to optimism to succeed in life!
