There’s a lot to be pessimistic about. There’s always another disaster or tragedy highlighted on the news. Rising obesity, depression, divorce, and mental illness rates. This list could go on and on.
Life may even feel like it’s out to get you. You dislike your boss or job. You’re stressed out all the time, never getting relief from work. Maybe you’re having trouble finding a partner. Or maybe you feel lonely and want more friends, but don’t know where to look.
The point is, that there are an infinite number of reasons to be pessimistic.
But you don’t need to be pessimistic. This is harmful for your mental health. You’ll guarantee yourself a life of unhappiness and misery if you choose to be pessimistic.
So, let’s avoid this painful life.
Let’s talk about why you should be optimistic about your future:
1. Burnout isn’t permanent
Burnout happens sometimes, especially if you’ve been working hard. But it’s not a life sentence… You can defeat it.
Sometimes we need a bit of encouragement or a short break to keep going in life. Taking a break is an effective way to clear your mind and let your emotions simmer down.
One little change to your daily routine can reignite the spark of passion you had. Or reframing your mindset can help you find a renewed joy in the activities you loved before burning out.
There are many ways to defeat your burnout. Don’t give up.
2. The future doesn’t exist yet
The future hasn’t happened yet.
You get to choose how your future unfolds. Your actions today will guide you towards this future. Act accordingly with how you want your future to unfold for you.
Let your actions guide you to a future you look forward to living in.
3. You’re building your empire
If you’re working towards your goals, then your hard work is worth the effort. Don’t get discouraged by slow progress.
Progress is still progress.
