Of course everyone know that being optimistic is better than being constantly pessimistic, but do we know why being optimistic helps you?
How does being positive helps you?
Pessimists people think they succeed with occasional skills or external causes. They believe it is only a stroke of luck and may give up, even if successful.
Optimists people think that they succeed because of their qualities and abilities, which increases their self-esteem. The optimists people are the ones who benefit most from success.
Being positive also reduces stress, which is bad for your health. Trust me, as someone with a chronic illness, I know first hand how stress worsen my condition.
How can we get a positive mindset?
Every time you achieve something, no matter how small it is, take a moment to reflect on what qualities and abilities help you.
