OPTIMISM - STAY ON TOP!
Optimism is an emotional competence that can help with overcoming conflict, boosting productivity, enhancing morale and have a positive impact on the bottom line. Optimism has been proven to be a powerful tool that will pay dividends for your personal life and give you a competitive advantage professionally in your career. There is a lot to be gained, indeed, in cultivating an optimistic outlook.
Winston Churchill's famous quote that "a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." promotes why it's better to have a positive outlook overall. Consider the first part of the quote ''a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity'' and the effect that pessimistic individuals can have on an organization's creativity and innovation. To be innovative, you need to be open to new ideas, wide open to seeing possibilities, willing to take risks and encourage others to take risks – willing to challenge the process in order to create new solutions or products or improve processes. In short, you need to have a sense of adventure and an expectation of success.
"a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." Winston Churchill
