While it is true that some people may find comfort in the fact that the thinking more positivethoughtsto help them cope with their struggles beer, there are also others that thrive in the negative thoughtsthat they harbor.
One should not be so easy to dismiss the pessimist attitude. As it turned out, it is not only the optimists that got it right, the pessimist hasevery right to stay grumpy and cynical as well. After all, it has been found out that there are actually a ton ofbenefits out of people beinga bit cynicalandbeingmore grounded on the realistic side.
A lot of people often think that pessimism is such a bummer. Everybody would prefer being with people who are upbeat and who thinkpositive thoughts all the time. But this should not discount the fact that there are actually people willachieve a lot of things out of their cynical nature. In fact, their being cynical may have even greatlycontributed to their present level of success. As such, there is definitely a need to get into this matter deeper, to delve more into the idea to see if negative thinking people and those that just was to see the realityof how things are really doing better in life.
These days, there seems to be an overwhelming pressure towards being positive and staying positive. Many forces in the cultural setting seem to be intent towards whipping up this really frenzied pursuittowards being happier. Everybody seems too intent ongetting thatpositive front and showing to the rest of the world that they are smiling and happy and that they are taking water life dishes out to them and remain steadfast in tier belief that thing is going to be alright.
But it is not always true for everybody. There are a lotof people that would want to take the cynical approach towards life. There are people that want to take things the way they are and will refuse to give colors to areas where here are none. The cynics are often frowned upon by many of themembers of society due to their deadpan attitude towards life in general. But as it turns out, there may be more benefit to being cynical than one would care to think.
One of the reasons why the concept of being positivehas become so popular over the year us the fact that it is supposed to make people better persons. It is supposed to make people happier and more accepting of how things are with life and to be moreflexiblein adjusting to all these circumstances. While it is definitely a good thing to be able to take what life has to dish out, there is also nothing wrong with people that just wants to deal with things the way they are dealt with them.
There are people that find thestrength not inlooking into the positive things in life or in thinking up really dream scenarios of how they would prefer thingsto turn out. But there is also astrength that can be found on those people that wouldratherlook at life eye to eye, with almost a smile of disdain on their faces knowing that something is likely going to be wrong when they turn around a corner. It is attitude like this that has made many a cynic isquite successful in their own rights.
When a pessimist deals with things he tends to envision his goals in his mind. This means that he actually takes the time to imagine the best scenario he can think of where everything that he wishes to become is already unfolding. With this image in his mind, he becomes motivated at doing what he can to work out strategies that are expected to help him reach these goals.
For the pessimist whoever the process is different. Instead of thinking up thoughts where he gets to achieve all that he can a cynic often ends up thinking of the worst-case scenario. He has low expectations on what is going to happen. But this can also cause him to be more driven to succeed. This is why, despite being cynical, you may still be on your fast track to success.
