Optimism in Action or Optimism Inaction?
We all know the old expression: "the pessimist sees the glass half empty and the optimist sees the glass half full." But I've always felt that was a little too simplistic of a description of both of those mental attitudes. In fact, I've come to believe that "optimism," generally is a very misunderstood term. And don't even get me started on "pessimism."
What many people call "optimism" — this idea that "things always work out for the best" or that "the sun will rise again" — is really just a refusal to look at the facts.
