Do you consider yourself to be an optimist, a pessimist, or a realist? Optimism, pessimism, and realism are three different paradigms that impact how we approach life and interpret life’s events. For some, they’re even identities.

When we face difficult times, our dominant paradigm tends to become amplified, which can be the determining factor in whether we suffer or thrive.

I’ve experienced this in a unique way. For many years of my life, I was what I would call a delusional optimist. While this helped me through some difficult times, it also stopped me from healthily processing negative emotions and events, and I had to learn quite a few tough lessons the hard way.

In this episode, I want to dive deep into the differences between optimism, pessimism, and realism–and help you identify how these paradigms can be most useful and effective as you optimize and make the most of the life you live.

Key Takeaways

  • What it really means to be an optimist, a pessimist, or a realist.
  • Why so many self-identified realists are focused on the negative–and why it’s just as realistic to be excited about the possibilities and positives in life.
  • The dangers of blind or delusional optimism–and how it can make it extremely difficult to process or make sense of negative emotions.
  • An exercise you can do to truly understand what’s going on in your life and reframe your reality.
  • The genius of being able to hold two opposing ideas in your mind simultaneously.
  • The ABCs of realistic optimism.

Would you say that you’re truly happy? In 2020, I got to a place where I was so depressed that I told my wife and my friends, “I don’t remember what it feels like to be happy.” That was after I had already sent my wife a desperate text message one night that read, “I don’t want to worry you, but I feel like I don’t want to live, and I don’t know what to do.” 

I was so scared that I’d never be able to get back to a place of happiness again and couldn’t remember how to get there. But over the course of the past year, I’ve gone from being the most unhappy I’ve ever been to arguably the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. It wasn’t a change in circumstances that led me there, it was a change in how I approach and view my life.

In today’s episode of the podcast, I want to share the three steps I took to get from being completely unhappy to feeling like I’m living life in a state of joy, peace, love, and gratitude—everything that makes up the feeling of happiness.

Key Takeaways

  • Why two people whose lives look exactly the same often feel completely different.
  • Why happy people find joy in everything they do and unhappy people constantly experience emotional turmoil.
  • The reason why there’s no cookie cutter approach to happiness—and how you can remove the obstacles that stop you from feeling happy.
  • The power of choosing to be happy—and what this actually entails.
  • What happens when we accept the unchangeable, stop resisting reality, and be at peace with things exactly as they are.
  • How to find joy in everything you do and make every moment the best moment of your life.
