#BookClub Learned Optimism How to Change Your Mind and Your Life

John Luginbill


Some good news: optimism is a learned skill.

Optimism is not some positivethinkingzipadeedoodahhappy talk. Real optimism is defined as understanding the natural consequences of your decisions. Optimistic people understand if they make quality choices, good things will eventually happen. So it makes sense that optimistic people are the most likely to succeed in both their personal and business life. You can read this book, or simply practice the suggested three NOT P’s: Not Personal (take nothing personally); Not Pervasive (not everything is wrong); Not Permanent (everything eventually changes).
