What you need to maneuver through a world of uncertainty is a sense of optimism—an attitude characterized by hope and confidence in a positive future.
Optimistic attitudes are linked to a number of benefits, including better coping skills, lower stress and anxiety levels, better physical health, healthier relationships, and higher motivation and resilience when pursuing your goals.
Optimist sees an unfortunate event, something that is limited in time.
pessimist, on the other hand, sees negative events as permanent, as part of life and destiny.
( So, when you find yourself in this situation, take a moment to really reflect on the challenge before you react.)
Try to visualize the next step towards improvement rather than responding to the setbacks that you have no control over.
Defensive pessimism is a strategy used by people who are anxious about an upcoming event. They set unrealistically low expectations before going into a situation and take steps to avoid poor performance. Defensive pessimism involves over-preparation.
For example, someone preparing for a job interview might convince themselves that the interview is going to be a disaster. The anxiety of this likelihood helps to prepare them for the job interview. The result is that they do exceptionally well.
