“Whilst the scientific community now better understands the key ingredients of a flourishing life and a flourishing world include the cultivation of gratitude, compassion and forgiveness - it is optimism and hopefulness that will help us sustain our energy and motivation to create better lives and a better world. We’re not talking about unrealistic or rose-coloured optimism but optimism that supports persistence in the face of negativity, resistance and adversity.”
