Having a consistent disposition that is positive, enthusiastic and confident
What is it?
Being optimistic means staying positive in spite of the circumstances and believing that there will be success. People who are optimistic believe that things will work out for the better.
Why is it important?
Nobody likes being around people who are always negative and expecting the worst. Who wants to hear constant complaining about the boss, the company, or the workload? If you believe that the situation is going to get worse, it usually does. But if you stay confident and believe in the possibility of a positive future, things have a greater chance of working out. Positive thinking often produces positive results.
