It is commonly believed that the way you perceive people and life adds the most to your personality.
This mindset can be achieved by maintaining positivity, which is synonymous with optimism. Sandeep Maheshwari once said that many people confuse positivity with having high expectations and hopes for any given event.
However, optimism involves overcoming challenges and turning them into opportunities. Even if the outcome of your hard work does not bring fame or fortune, maintaining optimism means that you continue without any expectation of a particular result.
Positivity means finding the courage and happiness within oneself to convert any difficulty into an opportunity. For example, if you are asked to give a speech in front of a crowd, being optimistic means recognizing the opportunity for self-development and to showcase your skills.
To sum up, optimism means discovering the good even in the midst of bad situations as everything has something positive waiting to be found.
