High Hopes

Signs You're An Optimistic

1. You have a clear vision of what you want to achieve.

2. You spend more than 50 percent of your time working toward achieving that vision.

3. You take 100 percent responsibility for all your successes and failures. (Pessimists, on the other hand, tend to blame other people.)

4. You avoid emotional vampires; i.e., people who try to suck the good feelings out of you.

5. You ooze confidence and have a "can do" attitude.
