As Winston Churchill once said, ‘Optimists see opportunities in every difficulty’ .

Of course it is easy to be optimistic when all is going well, but the real test is when things are not going according to plan. The question becomes how can we be optimistic and have gratitude for the things in our lives when things are not going well? Maintaining a positive mindset is one way to do this. Remembering past triumphs and understanding that there are opportunities regardless of challenges in the future is helpful in reframing when times are tough.

What are your strategies to continued optimism?
