Today, we strive to achieve an optimistic state of mind because many influential individuals and spiritual leaders advise us to be optimistic. Besides this, we practice optimism because we are aware of its advantages. However, most of us give up on optimism and believe it doesn’t work because of the following wrong beliefs we have about it.
- Optimism automatically makes an individual successful
The self-help industry has made people believe they can attract success by simply meditating on a bright future. For this reason, many individuals practice optimism without putting in the effort, and they give up on optimism and conclude that it doesn’t work when they don’t attract success after a certain period. Little do they know that optimism takes long to attract success, and it only attracts success if accompanied by many years of hard work.
I believe the main purpose for optimism on the road to success, is to enable an individual to keep working despite the number of obstacles he/she faces.
- Bad things don’t happen to optimistic people
People believe that only good things will happen to them if they practice optimism, and for this reason, they give up on optimism and believe it doesn’t work, when bad things happen to them while practicing optimism. I think motivational speakers must constantly remind people that optimism doesn’t prevent bad things from happening.
The main purpose of optimism is to enable you to persevere through hardships. Optimism enables you to attain inner peace during difficult times because it makes you believe that things will work out for you.
It is easy for a pessimistic person to succumb to depression when things don’t work out because this individual will believe that things will never change. Therefore, the main advantage of optimism over pessimism is that optimism enables a person to maintain a healthy mindset during hardships.
- We can immediately attain an optimistic mindset when we decide to do so
Most of us believe that we can immediately attain an optimistic mindset when we decide to be optimistic. We, therefore, give up on optimism when we fail to maintain a constant state of optimism after a few hours/days of trying to be optimistic.
We fail to realize that we must practice positivity for a long time before we attain an optimistic mindset
If you just try to attain an optimistic mindset without practice, you will fall back to pessimism every now and then. Therefore, the only way you can become constantly optimistic is by working on achieving this mindset every day.
Last year, I gave up on optimism because I always succumbed to pessimism after a few minutes of trying to be optimistic. I concluded that optimism is an unreachable state of mind just because I couldn’t maintain it for an hour. I never knew that I must constantly practice optimism for me to attain an optimistic mindset.
This year, I’m trying to be optimistic by trying the ‘optimism challenge.’ In this challenge, you are supposed to avoid worry, complain, or any negative emotion for three weeks. And if you complain or entertain any negative emotions within the three weeks, you will have to start again until you complete three weeks without allowing any negative emotion in your mind.
According to Brian Tracy, the founder of this challenge, something good will happen if you successfully complete the challenge. I welcome you to this challenge, and please let me know if anything good happens to you after continuously staying optimistic for three weeks.
I believe optimism is responsible for making many individuals persevere on the journey to success because it’s easier to keep working if you believe that your hard work will eventually pay. For this reason, we must practice optimism if we want to successfully complete our journey.
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence – Helen Keller, American Author
It’s hard to work towards your goals with a pessimistic mindset because you will have to force yourself to work every day. Besides this, a pessimistic mindset will increase your chances of giving up because you’ll believe that your efforts won’t pay off. That being said, embrace optimism, and believe that everything will work out for the best.

Who the Fuck Are the Illuminati/Elite?
For years, I have studied the Illuminati and I respect them for only one thing. They are fuckin geniuses. These guys have cleverly hidden many things from us and they have managed to make the public behave and think the way they want. I always wonder what enables them to succeed in doing so.
They designed schools to teach us shit and make us believe that people should waste half of their lives in school so that they work in jobs they hate. They lied to us that we must work till we retire then enjoy life after retirement when we are too old to have sex. Besides this, they made us believe that material goods are more important than everything else and tricked us into believing that spirituality is nonsense. Lastly, they put politicians to lead us and made us believe that these people have our interests at heart.
Some people claim that The Illuminati succeed in controlling us because they are magicians. These folks claim that the Illuminati know how to work with the universal energy to trick us into doing what they want.
Others argue that they are intelligent shape-shifting reptilians. According to this theory, the Illuminati usually shape-shift into the politicians that rule us today. However, some folks claim that the Illuminati are ordinary people who work with evil forces to control the world and others argue that the Illuminati are superior to us because they have historical information that most of us don’t possess.
This historical information the Illuminati are believed to possess reveals the true history of human beings and teaches people how to awaken the power hidden within them. Some historians claim that ancient men were highly connected to the Universal Intelligence and Nature and they were highly intelligent. They also claim that there are many hidden historical artifacts which prove that ancient men conducted X-rays, brain surgeries, and built huge buildings without using modern technology. For this reason, ancient men are believed to be extremely intelligent beings, and therefore, those who have access to their ways of living become highly intelligent.
Any of the above theories about the Illuminati might be true, and all of them might be false. However, regardless of what people theorize about the Illuminati, what is clear and true is that the Illuminati are rich and powerful folks who know something about the world and humanity that we don’t know. They work day and night and they use billions of dollars to distract us from knowing this hidden truth.
They know that we might discover this hidden truth and know who we truly are if they don’t distract us with the media, school, jobs, and many other weapons of mass distraction. They don’t want us to discover our true nature because they know that we might demand an equal share of the world’s resources if we awaken, realize our true magical powers and know that we have been fooled.
I also think the Illuminati might be powerful mystics who are preventing us from knowing how powerful we are because the world might become chaotic if everybody knows their true powers and what they can do with them.
But what if the Illuminati is bullshit and it doesn’t exist. Maybe we are tricked to believe that the Illuminati exists but it’s just a useless, stupid idea meant to distract us. Or maybe the Illuminati is real, but it’s a name given to the earth-bound satanic forces that want humanity to suffer all their lives.
And what if what they are hiding from us is not really hidden because we can still gain access to the universal wisdom and know all there is to know. What are your opinions about the elite?

What Nature Teaches Us about Hard Times and Good Times
I am a great fan of wildlife documentaries – especially those produced by Sir David Attenborough– because they teach me a lot about life. For instance, last week as I was watching a documentary about The Great Savannah I learned something valuable about difficult times and good times.
From the documentary, I realized that hard times and good times are part of life and so we must embrace the hard times whether we like it or not. However, what I mainly realized was that hard times always come to an end, and they are never that hard because there is always something to keep us moving during these times. The Creator never takes everything away during the difficult times because he needs our survival since he expresses himself through us.
In the Great Savannah, almost all animals suffer during the dry season because grass dries. Herbivores suffer because they rely on grass, and some of them die and others migrate. When the herbivores die or migrate, the carnivores also suffer because their food reduces in great quantities. Besides grass drying, the water also dries hence making it difficult for animals to find water and the only sources of water left become dangerous places since all animals including dangerous animals such as buffaloes, lions, and elephants compete for the little water left.
However, the good thing is that, in this dry season, there is always some food and water – even though it’s little – that enables the animals to survive. If the dry season wiped out everything in the Savannah then all animals could have died. However, the Creator cannot let all animals die because they are his physical expression. For this reason, he ensures that there is some little water and grass left for the animals to survive the dry season.
Similarly, we must know that when hard times come in our lives, there is always hope because there is always something to keep us moving. The universe never takes everything away during these times, and therefore we must not fear hard times.
Besides this, I also realized that when hard times come, they always pavé way for the good times. In the Savannah, the dry season enables bushfires to occur. These bushfires burn dead and old grass to pavé way for the growth of young, greener plants that will feed animals during the wet season.
Nature, therefore, teaches us that difficult times are necessary because they pavé way for good times. In my life, I have observed that hard times prepare us for good times because they make us see things differently and inspire us to go after what we really want in life.
Moreover, when watching the documentary, I realized that the rains always come when the season is extremely dry. They come when many animals have died, and almost all the plants have dried. This occurrence teaches us that it’s always darkest before dawn, and for this reason, hitting rock bottom is a sign that the good times are around the corner.
Lastly, I also realized that the rainy season always brings an excessive supply of food and water to the animals in the Savannah. Rivers always overflow, grass grows in abundance, and many herbivores give birth during the rainy season hence making carnivorous animals to enjoy an abundance of easy prey. (Wildebeests are known to delay their pregnancy till the wet seasons so that they give birth to calves when there is more than enough food to eat).
Similarly, I realized that when good times come to us humans, the universe always provides everything in excess that we forget that we one day lacked the things we now have.
With this in mind, we must always persevere the bad times knowing that when they end, The Universe will give us more than enough. It will give us plenty of love, food, money, and everything we need for living a good life.
By the way, this is not a motivational article. It is a realization and explanation of natural laws. I wrote the article so that you know that hard times are not that hard because the universe always provides us something to keep us moving during these times. Moreover, I wanted you to stop worrying when hard times come because they will always end and pave way for a season of abundance.
To sum up, I wanted you to realize that The Creator is a wonderful spirit that always provides to us during hard times, and he always ensures that we have more than enough in good times, which will always come. THIS IS THE LAW.
“The discovery of natural law is a meeting with God.” – Friedrich Dessauer
“Nature is My Bible.” – Isaac Wechuli
