Leadership Minute: The Power of Optimism

optimistic

Robert Louis Stevenson said, “You cannot run away from weakness; you must sometime fight it out or perish; and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand.” Optimism does not prevent difficulties or make you immune from them. Optimism, however, empowers you to face difficulties with a confidence that gives you an advantage to overcome them. Now is the time to rise up with courage and be the optimistic leader you were destined to become. Optimism alone will not put you over the top but it will keep you from being held down. Hold your head and heart high and embrace the possibilities of this day.
