“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” -Helen Keller
Learned optimism is the idea in positive psychology that a talent for joy, like any other, can be cultivated. It is contrasted with learnedhelplessness. Learning optimism is done by consciously challenging any negative self talk.
Martin Seligman’s came to the concept of learned optimism through a scientific study of learned helplessness, the idea that a certain reoccurring negative event is out of the person's control. As he was performing tests to study helplessness further, he began to wonder why some people resisted helplessness-conditioning. He noticed that, while some subjects blamed themselves for negative outcomes, others blamed the experiment for setting them up to fail.
Seligman shifted his focus to attempting to discover what it is that keeps some people from ever becoming helpless. The answer was optimism. Using his knowledge about condition people to be helpless in the lab, he shifted his focus to conditioning people to be optimists. The result of these experiments led to defining the processes of learning optimism.

Last week we talked about DisruptHR and upending the HR profession, and this week we’re talking about creating a “world of work” culture of optimism.
It’s too easy to talk about all the bad workplace stuff today, so let’s focus on what we can all do to make the workplace better.
Good idea, right?
Workplace optimism builds stronger relationships and empowers a culture that is positive for employees and management.
Managers can really help drive this and can’t always wait for executive leadership to improve morale close to where all the work gets done. Managers and employees can create actionable ideas that creates workplace optimism and meaningful work.

Possibly the number one secret of spiritual happiness is to be an optimist. Once you've attained true optimism, you will be spiritually happy, because you'll have absolute trust and faith. Optimism ultimately boils down to an absolute trust that everything is always, ultimately fine.
One way to create optimism is by interpreting events and circumstances through a positive worldview. This doesn't mean that we'll always to be able to come up with every possible positive explanation for each event in our lives. After all, every point of energy in this massive universe is a universe in and of itself. Life is big, big, big -- as the ancient scriptures say, bigger than the biggest.
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity;
an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
