OPTIMISM vs pessimism
So I thought this really matched my philosophy to a T on optimism and pessimism.
As Joel Rosenberg put it in his book The Ezekiel Option, “In the long run everything would turn out fine…but tomorrow could be a disaster.”
In short, this equates to:
I’m a strategic optimist, but a tactical pessimist.
My mom used to say, “If I am pessimistic, I’ll never be disappointed.” LOL
I think though when we have faith then we know that truly, in the end everything is for the best and will be okay.
In the short term though, there are challenges to face and these can be tough indeed.
- Strategically an optimist.
- Tactically a pessimist.
Plan for the worst, hope for the best. ;-)
