Add Optimism

Positive uncertainty asks you also to be optimistic. An optimist is defined as one who expects a favorable outcome. Why be optimistic? Because:

Optimism is a belief and “everything begins with belief”

Optimists recover faster from illness and injury; perform better at work, in school, and in athletics; and make significantly more money (Martin Seligman, author of Learned Optimism)

Optimism and resilience in the face of adversity is the greatest long-term predictor of success for individuals and organizations (Seligman)

An optimistic attitude is the key to persistence and resilience
