5 benefits of being optimistic
Optimists view setbacks as a new start. As an inventor, Thomas Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb before he was successful. Optimism allows you to learn from setbacks, pick up the pieces and move on to something greater.
Optimists can be expansive...make a difference. Optimism opens you up to new ideas and possibilities about how to make a difference in the world. It allows you to consider new options and make changes for the better. It helps you envision the future and create expansive, evolving realities.

Optimists spread good vibes. Optimism is contagious. Having a team leader with an upbeat attitude can inspire & encourage others to become engaged and connected. According to Gallup (2015) $77 - $99 billion is lost to workforce disengagement every year...it pays to be an optimistic leader...and person.
It is a choice. Being optimistic is a conscious choice. Choosing optimism over pessimism, improves: social connections, health, and life expectancy.
