Creating Optimism

“If you want happiness for an hour — take a nap.’
If you want happiness for a day — go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else.”
Chinese Proverb

Glass half full
or half empty?

Actually that does not matter. Optimism is less about positive thinking and much more about positive action. From finding reasons to be grateful to getting outside for a walk there are a hundred tiny ways to build your happiness levels every day. Research shows too that optimism has a strong connection with being proactive and being resilient. Focus on just one of these three will lead to strength in the others.

How optimistic are you?

Optimism will help you…

Adopt the right attitude

Bounce back faster

Live longer

Numerous studies link optimism with longevity and good health.

Ray GoodmanHigher Education Principal

These workshops are different because they're not target driven or issues based - it is a holistic approach to soft skills training that can help individuals of all backgrounds and abilities. And it has helped affirm to me how to cope with the ‘curve balls’ in life.

Will LawrenceCMS Law Firm, London

The workshop was incredibly useful in highlighting my own behaviours and the follow up coaching has really helped me become aware of a number of aspects of my personality and work habits. It’s been an insightful and interesting journey from start to finish and the lessons will stay with me for life.
