Honestly, these last two years have been difficult. With the rise of the COVID pandemic, Russia declaring war on Ukraine, and much more, many challenges have arisen. However, this is not the end of human suffering. In the years to come, we will undoubtedly face new and unforeseen challenges that will impact our lives in significant ways.
I’m not trying to be pessimistic, nor do I believe in being “realistic”. Instead, I’m calling for a certain level of rational thinking where we try to predict the future and prepare for the problems to come before they happen.
“As you probably know, negative events are cyclical and negative events happen on a semi-regular basis. We can’t always predict what exactly will go wrong, but we can expect that something will go wrong eventually.”– from book Optimal Happiness, page 48.
Luckily, in Optimal Happiness, we are preparing for exactly these sorts of eventualities. We provide #happiness regardless of who you are, where you live, and what your life circumstances are (ps: this is our slogan). So while we can’t say exactly what will go wrong and how we will fix it, we can prepare psychologically for these negative events in an efficient way.
Certainly, it is better to face any challenge with a clear head and a positively framed mind. Additionally, we know from research that many of the problems we are facing today or will face tomorrow will automatically be resolved by the simple fact that everyone is positive and happy. It just takes more people to be happier!
Still, one person can make a difference. You can make a difference, at least when it comes to the overall quality of your life. And you will enjoy your life way more, which in my mind is a win-win-win!
So, are you ready to face tomorrow with a smile on your face?
