Common sense: easy to see in self but tough to find in others. A pessimist said that. I have no idea why.

Communication band-aids don't solve the discomfort of negative thinking.

Shape up, Man, you gotta improve your attitude!  

Great advice in theory - useless advice in reality. 

If you want to help people with negative thinking, think first about your own attitude, thoughts and action then learn how to improve by replacing negative thinking with new thoughts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Of course, Sir Winston Churchill comes to mind, “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” 

Churchill, singularly, inspired a nation.

But, there's more to it...

Churchill inspired himself. 

[...in support of inspiration and daily affirmations]


Winners seek solutions and think of better places. Losers agonize over problems and fear uncertainty.

The choice is yours.

Choose fixing the problem over fixing the blame.

The optimist probably are just as wrong as the pessimists...but optimists have more fun.

Just don’t let optimism get outside the bounds of realism.

People with lesser ambitions should not impress their non-champion beliefs on champions or other more-confident competitors.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If everyone watered down their self-confidence in an effort to conform to the average then every competition would end in an across-the-board tie...with everyone finishing either first or last.

[First? or Last?...what a conundrum...with everyone average there would be no pessimists or optimists to argue one way or the other.]
