By making optimism a habit in your life you’ll discover…
that you are in control of your life, your feelings, your thoughts. Life doesn’t happen to you. Life is what you make it.
This 3 minute video from Finerminds talks about the “ultimate capacity we have to cultivate our lives” and “seeing the world through rose-colored lenses.” Jason Silva speaks of these topics with such passion that it’s hard not to get into it and really feel what he’s saying for yourself. You’ve probably heard about how fake smiling can lead to feeling happier. Well, it’s the same train of thought here: “the intention to be optimistic leads to optimism.”
If you skip the video, the least you should take from this post is this quote:
We do have the capacity to turn our lives into a work of art and why shouldn’t we?
