We should be optimistic in life. By optimism, it is meant that one should firmly believe that the best would happen. This belief will give us the moral boost to carry on with our efforts. Only hard and incessant efforts will lead to success. For our efforts to be incessant, we should positively believe that we are going to succeed. This sort of positive thinking urges us onward till the end I achieved. Instead, if we get discouraged and lose heart, chances are that he will fail. There is another side to this, despite all our efforts it happens that we don’t succeed. If such a thing happens, we should be prepared to accept it. We should remember that defeat is yet another step to success. Our next endeavor may succeed. But instead of that, if we lose heart and remain inactive, we will be giving success no chance to help us. Life as we all know is full of hard realities. At the same time life has its bright side also. Life is really a mixture of success and failure nobody is entirely successful in life. Likewise nobody can always be failures. If we fail once, the next time we may succeed. And so in whatever we do it is always better to hope for the best and at the sometime be prepared for the worst. Such an attitude will certainly help us in life.
