Lucky Optimists

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
– Winston Churchill

Luck, they say, is the intersection of preparedness and opportunity.

Optimists find opportunities where pessimists find difficulties, according to Churchill.

This explains why optimists are luckier than pessimists.

The result is a virtuous cycle that helps us remain optimistic.

– Michael Gollin
