Are you optimistic?
Do you know someone who is naturally optimistic?
Is your focus on the glass being half full or half empty?
Scientific research shows us that one of the chief personality characteristics of successful entrepreneurs is a strong sense of optimism – not a delusional sense of everything is sunshine and happiness but a really positive expectation that “Life is Good.”
It all starts in childhood – what I sometimes refer to as “our little life.” Our parents, our teachers and our peers all help to shape our expectations of what life is like and how positive or negative to feel about the future.
