Things can be better. Things could be better than they are today if we take a few steps. Or…this is not gonna be easy, but if you persist there is a chance that you can achieve it and things will change for better.
Three totally different ways to think about a situation or a challenge. Perhaps it’s not just about being optimistic/pessimistic. Rather, it is about adjusting the expectations and putting the right lens so you can better position yourself for what is coming. Imagine for example if you were asked to climb a mountain tomorrow (supposing that you’re not a climber). Would you keep your daily routine the same way or instead, would you eat and sleep better in order to be more prepared?
Adjusting the expectations increases the odds that you will succeed.
