How to be an optimist

I’ve posted this once before, but it’s worth sharing again. Today, I was trying to pump myself up to counter the quite regular resistance that life places on us — yeah, even half-delusional Marines like myself can get pulled down by all the punches life delivers, not to mention the unceasing chattering from pessimists and whiners in the world.

And under my categories on this site under “Motivation,” I found this great read: How to be an optimist.

Definitely worth reading, in my opinion.

    Great leading quote on that page. Ignore the pessimists and whiners. I know you can. You’ve done it before, Stan. I hope things are looking up for you now.
