Pessimism Never Won Any Battle

“Pessimism never won any battle.”

~ Dwight David Eisenhower, the 34th President of the United States.

I always like to tell other people there's no point in thinking negative and always try to think positive myself.

Never really could explain to them why there's any point in thinking positive (this sentence sounds a bit negative, don't you think so?).

I don't know. I guess it always was a no-brainer to me and I would like to but I tend to not understand why certain people think negative most of the time.

Is it fear? Are they so called "experienced optimists"? Even so, I think sometimes you have to make a willing effort for thinking positively about something. I do this sometimes too.

I'm not talking being unrealistic, but believing in yourself and instead of giving up, questioning your abilities and asking yourself what else you CAN do -- to get to the positive outcome.

I think Henry Ford best summed it up when he said:

“Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right.”
