The Power of Optimism [Life is Good: The Book by Bert and John Jacobs]

“By acknowledging obstacles and opportunities—but focusing on the opportunities—optimism enables us to explore the world with open arms and an eye toward solutions, progress and growth.”

Life is good. With those three words, the Jacobs brothers found the principle that allows them to live a life of better health, resilience, and fun.

We all face our own challenges in life, and sometimes it seems impossible to bring up a positive attitude. But, we’re here to tell you that it is possible! At times, it may even be this positive attitude that can keep us going. Optimism is a powerful concept because it is not about denying that you’re going through a stressful time, or suppressing your feelings, or pretending to be happy. Optimism is simply believing that there is something good that could come from whatever challenges you are facing, even if you can’t think of what that might be yet.

Optimistic people believe that life is happing for them and not to them. They believe that they have the potential to overcome whatever odds may come their way. Because of this belief, they are able to move forward by learning, growing, and making the best of their circumstances… even if it is easier to give up. We have immense power to create our lives through perceptions and responses to whatever life may throw at us.
