Singing in the rain while looking for blue skies African proverbsMost people are more than happy to tell you about all the things that are going wrong or that will go wrong in their life. There is a big difference between realism and pessimism.

The realist understands that not everything will always work out for the best, but sometimes things do work out. The pessimist, on the other hand, assumes that everything will always work out for the worst. The realist will approach a problem with the expectation that there is a viable solution out there somewhere. Pessimists know beyond any doubt that nothing they do will make any difference.


Part of looking for blue skies is learning to sing in the rain.
