We’re calling it: that ‘think only happy thoughts’ kinda optimism needs a shakeup.
So we’re renaming today’s Positive Thinking Day > Realistic Optimism Day. Here’s how to do it. “Think happy thoughts” is a sweet idea, but out of 50k thoughts a day? That’s tough.
Studies show ‘realistic optimists’ get the best of both worlds—that ‘things will work out’ hope, but also faith in their ability to work through obstacles that will pop up.
Today, get realistically optimistic. Imagine the best-case scenario for the day—but also the potential challenges (paper. jam.). But picture yourself working through it.
Hope for the best, but trust you can handle the not-so-great.
