Here’s a short but important message from Seth Godin:
Optimism As a Choice
If your team is up by thirty points at halftime, it’s not optimistic
to expect that you’re going to win–it’s a realistic assessment.
Optimism is an attitude and a choice. It involves context and focus.
We’re not deluding ourselves with the reassurance that everything
is going to be okay (because that’s not productive).
Instead, we’re committed to finding things we can contribute to, work on
and improve. We’re devoted to seeking out useful lessons and to
discovering where the benefit of the doubt might be helpful.
Positive thinking doesn’t solve every problem.
But it’s a much better tool than negative thinking.
I think being aware of your attitude and being clear about the choice you’ve made is a primary determinant of the quality of life, your relationships, your success and your overall happiness.
I’m hoping you agree :-).
“Since being coached by Carolyn, I have a much clearer idea of how to
deal with challenging situations and I can now see a clear path ahead
to reach my goals.
I recommend Carolyn’s coaching to leaders who need personal and
professional guidance to be the best version of themselves.
She provides practical insights into solving difficult circumstances
and is always great with coming up with solutions that actually work!”
