Optimism vs Pessimism: What is better for business?

Optimists see the world with a smile on their face, while for pessimists everything is negative. Is really as simple as that? Could pessimism help you in your business?

Let's find out!

The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.”

William Arthur Ward, author

Many pessimists say that they are realists. But if you think about it, each of us has his or her own reality. This is what actually affects our actions.

What are the pros and cons of pessimism?

Many investors have achieved success because pessimism kept them away from investing in adventurous or dangerous projects. So, they keep their savings.

On the other hand, they don’t grasp opportunities to go beyond. Pessimism demobilizes and deprives people of motivation. If you expect a negative outcome from the very beginning, you can "attract" it.

How can optimism improve or worsen one’s business life?

Optimism has two sides. Many optimists are gamblers and dreamers who can’t always assess risks, but are ready to give it all. Some of them don’t manage to survive the clash with reality.

But optimism is also a source of inspiration, which charges people and enables them to explore unconventional ways. Innovators can’t live without optimism, otherwise how can they make dreams come true?

What to do?

The best option is a balance between optimism and realism, not to miss the best opportunities in life!
