Pessimism is seductive

Your cricket team is losing.

Economic growth is stalling.

The markets are tanking.

Bad news abounds, you don’t have to look hard to find it.

Which is why pessimism is seductive.

So easy to let yourself be enveloped by the warm, comforting tendrils of negativity.

But where does that lead you?

Guaranteed failure (and surrounding yourself with fellow pessimists).

Stay away from pessimism.

You have nothing to gain from that thinking.
