I’ve noticed that a lot of people have failed numerous times before succeeding. These are optimistic people, and instead of staying down after a major setback in their life, they gather up their energy and efforts into moving on.
Failures are not always bad. I consider this as the backdoor to success. It is an essential step on our road to become successful on things we are most passionate about. It is a lesson for us in order to know what should we do the next time we are to face the same problem.
Optimists think this way. They analyze the situation and think of ways on how they can change the outcome next time. They have the innate ability of bouncing back after failures and have the greater chance of succeeding every time they come back full of courage, perseverance, determination and initiative. They were the ultimate survivors.
“Becoming optimistic is relatively easy when things are going well”.
It becomes a real deal when things are in chaos.
I once faced such problem that I almost give-up because I can’t seem to find a way how to solve it. That time, the only thing that motivates me is Mathematics. I am passionate about solving math problems and I came to realized that in solving mathematical problems, you can use a lot of methods and ways to arrive on one answer. The same method applies to the real world.
There are many ways how to solve a problem. This fact is a vital key for optimists to look at the future in a positive way. They shape their own future in the best possible manner they wanted by acknowledging failures and setbacks as temporary and not permanent. Well, this is actually right. Being down for a certain time is only temporary. What is permanent is our capability to stand up again. Our ability to learn, change, grow and adapt which are essential for personal growth. Personal growth happens when we encounters difficulties in life. In order to overcome such difficulties, we need those abilities I’ve mentioned awhile to stand up once again and continue moving forward. And once we overcome the difficulties we have, we may also be able to discover our true potential.
Optimism is crucial to reach our true potential as a human being. This is by nature overcoming the obstacles we face as we become the best that we can be. By believing in our potentials and abilities are we able to fully discover and reach the highest level that we are capable of.
