“Optimism is a blessing, a rare gift which illuminates and heart and mind and makes a person magnetic to benevolent forces.” That is a direct quote from Spring of Prosperity by Torkom Saraydarian.
It takes internal commitment and work to be optimistic, however, the rewards are great. What do you identify with? Do you look for the good in others? The beauty in others? Or do you emphasize their faults? The more we see the beauty in others, the more we recognize the beauty in within us and the more optimism we feel about the future of humanity.
