Imagine being grounded in a view that had you saying internally ‘this will work out cos I’m gonna work multiple solutions till one comes right’.
In other words a mindset made up to never give up + always seek a way forward.
“So when obstacles show up, it’s important to recognize the need to deal with them realistically, with a plan, but one that is born from a positive mind-set. I call this Functional Optimism and it’s a key component of achieving your Big Picture goals. It’s not about knowing everything can work out. It’s about knowing that everything will work out because you’re going to do whatever you need to do to make it happen.” (Horton)
What could do with some functional optimism?
