If you want to finish strong, Optimism will help you persevere to finish. A smile or laugh is contagious! Unfortunately, so is pessimism. Positive thinking provides good benefits, but it isn’t the answer. Neutral or non‐negative thinking is better.

When you know reality and have an optimistic attitude, it helps you deal with the obstacles, not letting them prevent progress toward your desired results.
