By believing that bad situations can improve, optimism motivates people to change those bad situations (e.g., to stick to health regimens and to seek health advice, and also to address life problems problems early on before they spiral out of control). By nipping problems in the bud before they become entrenched, optimists end up (on average) having to solve fewer difficult life problems than do pessimists.
Optimistic people look for solutions knowing they will find creative ways to approach problems. It’s a far better approach than pointing fingers and assigning blame. Choose to look at life’s challenges through an optimistic lens. You’ll discover more open doors and pathways to solutions.
