Why optimistic people are more successful?
Good feeling always renders a positivity in terms of health. Health here refers to both physical and mental health. As we grow up, we might come across a lot of negativities, but optimists find a reason to have a broad smile.
Success is a very relative term. But, for an optimist, success is when he realizes that there is hope in every failing effort. An optimist can find hope even from the slightest rays of light in a murky room.
So, why are optimists so successful?
More importantly, what is success? Is there anything as absolute as success?!
We will explore these topics along with finding out some of the most meaningful ways how you can turn yourself into an optimist.
Understanding the biology behind optimism:
Optimism is not a choice it is a lifestyle. Often, the optimists ensure that they don’t let negativity infiltrate their lifestyle.
That doesn’t mean they don’t allow negative thoughts or negative scenarios in their friend circle. Instead, optimistic people have a very strong faith and understanding of the situation.
The optimism stems from their barricades of belief on the vibrations of confidence. They are highly confident individuals, who have tested their faith and have restored their brain cells to believe in the power of positive vibes.
The positivity leads to the secretion of the feel-good enzymes in the brain cells. These feel-good enzymes lead to an increased biological activity, which thus improves the performance in the workplace.
This improved performance in the workplace and personal lives actually enhance their levels of dopamine. In turn, this encourages them to push harder in life; thus achieving better goals.
Another theory which goes hand in hand with the above theory is the placebo effect.
Do you know what placebo effect is?
Medically, the placebo effect can be related to relief from a particular health condition upon being administered a look-alike inactive drug. But, the catch is, the patient is informed that the ‘real’ drug has been administered.
When it comes to handling the psychological effects, when a particular aspiration that is positive is set forward, every positive feeling of achieving it brings it closer.
This is the proven secret that has helped the optimistic people to be more successful than their counterparts.
It is more like a belief in their abilities and taking every outcome positively and growing out of it!
Understanding the nuances of success:
Success is a very funny friend!
Often, people who have shed their blood and sweat fail to achieve success, whereas the ones with The right connections become successful.
Or, the ones who are successful in one sphere of life are struggling in some other sphere.
So, what is actually success?
Is success absolute?!
Honestly, there is no definite answer to it.
But, there is one way in which we can never get an answer.
It is called comparing your success with others!
The moment you compare someone with yourself and your abilities, you are putting a big question mark on success. Thus, it is important to understand that success begins when you accept your current condition in life and decide to move ahead and achieve something better.
Success is not when you make someone else’s achievements in your benchmark. Rather it is when you pledge to improve yourself every day; with time.
Success might not be living in a huge house or earning a 6 figure salary. Success is when you pursue what your passion is and achieve it through hard work.
The definition of success is cryptic, yet the definition is true always.
The most important thing about success is, it takes times and patience to come, but if you have worked hard, it stays forever!
