Discussion1 Wrap Up

Iam an optimist and this makes me focus more on the positive thingsthat life has to offer, and this pushes me to achieve better results.As a high school student working towards achieving the necessaryskills to better my future, reports on increased unemployment ratesand future economic tough times can only kill my dreams.Nevertheless, I have managed to remain positive by viewing setbacksas temporary events. Life has a lot to offer and one has to beoptimistic to create opportunities which will make life worth living.

Viewinglife from a glass half full perspective has taught me the virtue ofcommitment. I desire success in my life, and to achieve this, I haveset goals meant to help me pass my high school education andthereafter transit to college to pursue my career course. However,there are times I fail to achieve my best and this can bediscouraging, but as an optimist, I have learned to view failure as alesson as a start to something better and this helps me to remaincommitted to my goals. Mistakes are pointers to how a person shouldnot do something, and when taken as a lesson, they make an individualwork towards discovering other ways of achieving better outcomes.

Onthe other hand, optimism makes one lose touch with reality and thiscan lead to complex problems. I have, in many occasions, ignoredsigns of problems waiting to happen. Optimism makes one hopeful andwhenever I saw warning signs I remained positive and told myself thatthings were alright. The end result was more problems which couldhave been avoided had I taken the warnings seriously.
