Optimism is a form of positive thinking that guides us in our belief about how successful we think our actions and outcomes will be. Optimists believe they have the skill and ability to make good things happen and are able to reframe a negative event to seek out the positive. They believe negative events are rare occurrences and, if they happen, are not their fault, but are due to external factors.
