Optimism Matters

“Whatever happens, whether you succeed or you fail, people with high expectations always feel better, because how we feel — when we get dumped or we win employee of the month — depends on how we interpret that event.” ~Tali Sharot

Listen to this video of Tali Sharot as she talks about the common positive trait of optimism. Tali Sharot studies why our brains are biased toward optimism.

Excellent video, makes you think and feel good about who you are. Be well.
