The Unlimited Potential Show I Relatable Self Development

Feb 16, 2022

Think of the most optimistic person you know. The one who, no matter what comes their way, always seems to take it in stride with a smile on their face. Sometimes, these are the very people that can make our bad moods worse with their “head in the clouds” mentality. Truth is, we should learn from them…

Welcome back to the Unlimited Potential Show! Today we take a look into the power of optimism. Despite what we may have seen in our lives, optimistic outlooks have been linked in a number of studies as the key to finding success in multiple areas of our lives like work, education, and even changing our DNA. Now, while some of this might take longer than others, there’s no doubt that optimism is more than just a happy attitude. 

Join us as we talk about how you can cultivate optimism in your own life and how it all comes down to your beliefs and the way that you talk to yourself. You’ll learn practical tips to become more aware and catch your negative thinking, the technique that may have you changing your perspective, and the power of emotional regulation. This episode is packed to the brim with insights into optimism and how it can bring you closer to success than ever before.
