A positive outlook enables a can-do attitude. It increases our resilience and gusto to keep on going when the going gets tough. We should do it, all of us, all the time. It creates a healthy state of mind. Positive thinking focusses on potential and possibilities instead of hurdles and impossibilities.

It all sounds so fantastic! Like you just spent 3 hours in a motivational seminar that cost you a pretty penny. You would do it again. You would have to.

Positivity wears off quickly when we use it as an anesthetic to numb the inconvenience of reality. It’s like window dressing a pet crematorium. It does little to address reality.

Positivity is helpful when we use it to face the challenges of reality with a fresh perspective. Used correctly, it embraces reality and works to make it better.
