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 the Monash Health Foundation team, mindset is very powerful and a great foundation for innovation, strategy and getting things done!

What has helped keep you optimistic in these difficult times?

Expressing gratitude, reducing consumption of bad news are the top of the pops for keeping yourselves optimistic. 

Sharing stories of hope and optimism are powerful and a key forward action.  Positive music is great!  Yoga and exercise are powerful too and keeping the company of optimists is a very useful habit.

What makes us Optimistic?

It is knowing that there are support measures in place and pathways to an outcome. Patience also plays a big part in this and being in control of what you can control.

Focusing on positives & keeping an open mind.

Supportive friends and family.

My children and seeing the world through their eyes.

Past Experience.

Seeing how much I've grown over the past few years.


Curiosity and a desire to learn.

Planning and thinking about the future with friends and family.

My children - they have experienced extraordinary times and have learnt they will work out in the end. We are nurturing the most resilient generation in decades, and I can't wait to see what they do as adults.
