One of the questions I get during the Q&A after keynote speeches or during optimism workshops is from people feeling they are ridiculed or diminished in their optimism and what should they do about it.
The loudest voices at their board table, executive meeting or team meeting are those complaining, being pessimistic and bemoaning the lack of leadership around them.
Some of these people conform to a pessimistic conversation model, suppressing their optimism for fear of becoming labelled Pollyanna or unrealistic.
True optimists and realistic optimists do not ignore challenges, the bad stuff or pretend that negative feelings and experiences do not exist.
The true optimist acknowledges those challenges and then says, “I can work through those!”
