EP.15 - LEARNED OPTIMISM
This episode is all about cultivating an optimistic mindset. Throughout the podcast, I make reference to a book by Martin Seligman, Learned Optimism. Below is a list of the 3 P’s that are used to explain our successes and our failures in life. How we explain these to ourselves will determine whether we have an optimistic mindset in certain situations or a pessimistic mindset.
The pessimist will explain things in their own head very differently to an optimist and when it comes to failures, they say and act very helpless in situations.
