An optimist. A pessimist. Or a realist.
The world loves optimists. Absolutely glorifies them.
Pessimists are always given the stick.
Realists? Do they even exist?
Here’s what Swami Swaroopananda says.
Be a realist. Why? Because an optimist never sees a problem, while the pessimis sees nothing but the problem. A realist approaches the situation with full awareness, mindful that things can go wrong and also the courage to see it through.
