I call this blog a Scrambled Erratum! The description goes like this - "Aggregate of individuals
are left in confused state as even the smallest subatomic matter in their respective brains make
them scratch their heads by self or mechanical/electronic means, intentionally/unintentionally
deviating from what is correct, right or true."

Optimism

‘Optimism and good health’ like ‘Burger and sauce’, they’re a perfect combination. These valuable assets can lift you up stream and sustain you throughout your life. Happiness and positive outlook of life directly helps in maintaining good health in return, good health can help you feel more cheerful and optimistic. Optimism is not the refuge of bubbleheads it’s a scientifically proven way to get happier, healthier and even cat nippier to the opposite sex.

A happy nd positive perspective can bring many practical benefits like better health, longer life, nd greater success in your fitness regimen, your job, nd even your love life.

Keeping a positive attitude can improve how you feel every day as well. Positive thinking and positive stimuli in ur environment are gr8 for reducing tension during stressful moments.

When you meet people who always seem to be happy, you’re meeting people who are making a daily effort. They are keeping themselves focused on what really uplifts their vision and spirit, and they are working on connecting to other people with laughter, Smiles and kind words. They are working hard to surround themselves with other people who think positively and believe in dreams.

On a purely practical level, I find assuming a can do attitude about my work or personal aspirations always opens up possibilities. My mind begins to work in new, creative ways and Am sure that, physiologically, the neurotransmitters in my brain are finding new pathways and enhancing the overall thinking process. Optimism helps me focus and concentrate better and that automatically gives me a more vigorous and youthful drive as I tackle new ideas.

A common conundrum illustrates optimism versus pessimism with some questions,

What do you see in the below picture?

*Conventional wisdom expects optimists to reply with half full and pessimists to respond with half empty (assuming that full is considered good, and empty, bad.)

What do you see in the below picture?


*Pessimist sees a black dot despite the large amt of white space available.
Whereas an Optimist sees the remaining white space though there is a single black dot.

CONCLUSION

Remember, you must take some effort to reach and maintain an optimistic perspective, but that effort is as rewarding as the happy, positive lifestyle you will enjoy. As you turn yourself into an optimist, you’ll also be improving your health and ridding your life of unneeded stress. You’ll be smiling more and finding ways to be friendlier and more outgoing. And you’ll be looking forward to a longer, healthier, more fulfilling life. So do the practical things learn how to be happy!

A paradox sometimes associated with optimism is that the only thing an optimist cannot view as positive is a pessimist.

And I don’t want anyone to be a panglossian… being an optimist to some extent is enough to lead a better life.

as a matter of fact, in the present day situation, everyone needs to be a possitive thinker, rather to think the other way. The optimist is most preferred than a pessimist. a very good selection of subject. The hot topic of the day.

Nice post there pappu..

Optimism is fine dude but there is something called reality too.So being a panglossian is not advisable as you said.Im not against you but you see optimism is not always the key.One needs to consider any situation from a pessimistic point of view too.

Eg:Some people carry first aid boxes along with them.This does not entirely qualify them as pessimists.It's not that they want to get involved in accidents or fear they might get injured every time they go out.They are just being cautious.

Many ppl believe in ravugalam and yamagandam and they cannot be classified as pessimists either.

Be an optimist and not a pollyanna.
Be a pessimist but not always!!

Ha Atlast U have something on your Blog with a "U" Rating! Nice to note the variations u introduce in ur topics. My next essay would be on pessimism and I will have my 4th article for my blog. So naaye sekrama password koduda!! I am not goin to comment anything on ur post except that U had written with minimal or no research with complete bias on optimisim. I would suggest u to read the theories on pessimism. I was really impresses by Murphy's laws. "If anything has to Go wrong it will" this is the first quote in the book. To sum it up you have written your post from an optimist's view. A biased piece of work! You can say i was pessimistic in reviewin ur piece but thats the truth!
