I've been thinking about positivity and optimism and their differences. I wonder if these terms and 'hashtags' we use - #minsdetiseverything and #positivemindset - are truly, everything. Or are they terms we use, so often, in this coaching/self improvement and self development space, that can feel supportive to some degree - also, depending on our life circumstances. Or can they, at times, actually create the opposite of positivity, and instill feelings of lack or failure, if we can't truly live up to this. Is the answer - yes, mindset is everything, but perhaps not without our heart connection too. Or perhaps it's not a positive mindset, but an optimistic outlook, that's far more valuable, supportive and brings all the feelings I believe in so much - calm, ease, connection and confidence within - from this optimistic place. I know there are so many various schools of thought on this, and I want to share, in this episode, just a little of what I mean and feel. Why I personally choose and favour optimism over positivity. And I encourage you to reflect on what feels most true and supportive for you. You might agree, or disagree - and I invite you to share your thoughts, as I'd love to hear and know.
