Another noteworthy article is ‘Success Story in Business Coaching Leadership, Life & Optimism’ by one of our regular contributors Malcolm Nicholson from the United Kingdom. He gives us insights on optimism and why it is an essential ingredient for innovation. He encourages us that the next time we have a difficult situation ahead, we should minimise negative thoughts and visualise the outcome we want by using positive affirmation statements.

Its a very good article...
I have come to the conclusion that management of someone’s internal dialogue is a defining step in managing mood and its outward manifestation.
Your point about learned optimism I think is very important as you have to practice these skills unless you are very lucky and never have to face any sort of adversity.
I will have a bit more of a reflect as there is clearly something very worthwhile in exploring this more.
