One of the issues with blind optimism is that living your life with blinders on can leave one vulnerable to being exploited by others or simply knocked off balance when something you didn’t see coming happens.
It’s better to live with your eyes open and acknowledge what you can’t control — while directing your attention to what you can — than it is to pretend that the things you don’t wish to see don’t exist.
Whatever you focus on grows stronger because energy flows where attention goes.
So focus your attention on what you desire — and what you wish to change — without putting blinders on, and you will be putting energy where you want it, without losing sight of the larger picture.
- Not giving a damn is not the answer
- Energy flows where attention goes.
- What stress is caused by and why you should give a damn
- It’s all there for you if you want it.
