Realistic And Optimism
To be realistic takes a lot to build in one’s life. Though many choose optimism rather than being realistic and that means a character expecting to see the best in all things. But realistic supersede optimism. But then again is it really easy to see one who is realistic and optimistic at the same time? That can be possible, but Tali Sharot in her book, Major Delusion, reminds us not to get carried away with optimism but to be realistic. That means in whatever we do and believe in we should be honest.
A life of honesty brings hopefulness and expectation to get the best in all our endeavours. Experience in life has taught me that opportunities can come to you when you build within yourself a realistic attitude towards people. You may not really rely on hopefulness and that is being optimistic but being realistic you will surely meet your prospects and beyond what you expect. Remember that optimism alone cannot take you to your desired destination to be successful. Everyone seems to be optimistic in life but your desired goal is all about hard work. Now imagine if you consider being realistic, you have already achieved a mile to your destination. Realistic with little hard work has already taken you to where you want to be or where you have expected to be or get in life. It may surprise you that realistic in one’s behaviour may not really need an addition of hard work for achieving success. Why? Because life account will tell you that people find favour when they are real. To be precise, one who is realistic attracts goodwill even when he or she did not work for it. One of the greatest but a silent weapon to fight for accomplishment is being realistic and convincing. With that alone doors can open for ones attainment in life.
Nevertheless optimism cannot be completely overlooked because an optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty. According to Elizabeth Scott author of Benefits of Optimism, Optimists are known to be persistent and because of that they are more likely to achieve success. Therefore one can notice that the greatest and well respected men in the world are those who have built their personality being realistic and optimistic. The life of Nelson Mandela is a model of realistic and optimism.
