2021 What makes Essendon Rotary Optimistic?

In preparation for a presentation at Essendon Rotary, we asked the members to fill out our global optimism survey.   We included some Rotary Club of Boronia comparisions for interest.

Do any of these 'optimisms' describe your optimism? 

Essendon Rotary seems to have more resilient and realistic optimists than the average.  Worth talking about.

What if anything supports your optimistic outlook?

We ask, "What if anything supports your optimistic outlook?" and offer a series of options derived from our first global survey and the answers we have received from thousands of people.    

The top answers globally in order are Mindset; Life Experience; Most people are trying to do good; Gratitude; Faith in God; Family; Faith in Humanity; Hope; Science; Young People; Things will work out in the end; Belief; Friends; The Future; History; Medical Science; Good Government; and, The Economy.

For Essendon Rotary it's even more about life experience and faith than the average.
