Characteristics & Secrets of an Optimistic Person


Being optimistic is no easy task, contrary to the belief that optimistic people are laid back, they also discreetly worry about the outcome of their choices. Making a lot of mistakes on the way but moving forward with a smile. Sounds crazy right?

Yes, people who are sincerely and unbearably optimistic are crazy, not because they always see everything positively by default but because of their capability to convert chaotic situations into blissful resolutions.


There are two types of individuals in my perspective, people who gain strength from negative thinking (Let's call them NEGATRONS) and people who gain strength from positive thinking (Let's call them POSIMUS PRIME), these individuals are not necessarily against each other, nor are their beliefs wrong. Putting it simple, they are two different people who work their way out of a certain situation from a different perspective, like the Chinese philosophy YIN & YANG.

I have been a NEGATRON for a short while when I was a kid and honestly, it worked at that time. Being a NEGATRON, for me, was tiring and somewhat stressful, but it made me alert and fully aware of the decisions I make. Negatrons are usually passive, they take risk calculation to the next level and face every challenge with great caution. Some people hone this skill like there's no tomorrow and as a result they may be able to be GREAT risk analysts.

After some time, events in life led me to become a POSIMUS PRIME, a lot of things happened and made me think that every "challenge" can turn out to be worthwhile experience. We are people who love diving into opportunities as much as we can, savoring success and learning from our mishaps are what we value the most. I believe that people who hone their positive persona are usually active and can be GREAT psychiatrist.


CHARACTERISTICS:
(Samples of things that a POSSIMUS PRIME would think/do)


- You were given a bag of shit, and I mean literal human shit, feces! Instead of being disgusted and scared of the bacteria it contains or even wonder who it came from, you would immediately think that you can use this as a fertilizer to grow a beautiful garden.

- You made a wrong move at the office which made your boss shout at you for almost an hour, Instead of getting all sad at the office or even think of quitting, you sit down stretch your arms, and immediately battle the situation by finding a resolution for your mishap.

- You are an innovator, for you impossible is just a word, you pave the road towards the possibility of an impossible feat, thus ideas often start from you.

- You are a quick thinker, you often think on your feet. Impromptu presentations doesn't bother you at all, whatever outcome you produce.

- You grab opportunities as long as you can still handle them. There will be a lot of opportunities along the way.

- You loooooove adventures. On a date, you would rather go to a place with your spacial someone without anything planned than to have a list of itineraries. Because you know that you would have a good time nonetheless.

SECRETS:
(Secrets on how to become an Optimistic Person)


- It all starts with a strong mindset and I mean STRONG and stubborn mindset, for you negative things are always considered a challenge instead of a burden. It should not take a lot of time to move on from a problem, but just enough time to give it importance in order for you to act quickly and accurately proceed with your next plan of action. Setting a strong positive mindset may seem to be easy, but it truly requires a lot of practice.

- Practice quick thinking, think on your feet! Most people are comfortable in taking a lot of time to plan their next step, especially right after a disaster, if you wish to be successful in being a POSSIMUS PRIME, the time for absorbing a problematic situation will have be lessened but results of your solution should still be of high quality. If you sincerely practice this, you will notice that you are moving on from a negative to a positive scenario quicker than usual.

- Experience is key, but not necessarily your own experience. We have to accept that we can learn from others, lower your pride from time to time and listen to your surroundings, there are people who take a lot of challenges in life. This is also where you can practice becoming a beacon of optimism. With your positive mindset and of course with their consent, do not hesitate to guide them through the positive side. Things that happen to your friends, may also happen to you, help each other, make them feel at ease, and at the moment you experience a similar challenge, you would know what to do.

- Cherish every moment. A positive person would always have a lot of things they want to do and it might be a challenge to achieve everything in one lifetime. Always think "La vita bella" which means life is beautiful, remind yourself that you are here for a reason and that reason is to appreciate all the things in life.

- Practice positive scripting, I strongly believe that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. If the action is negative, verbalize the positive, and if the action is positive, discreetly analyze and learn from its negative counterpart. Remember that more often than not, who you are depends on what you say.


THAT SAID, CAN YOU BE AN OPTIMIST?
