?Stay Optimistic by Focusing on the Journey, Not the Goal

It can be difficult to remain optimistic in the face of adversity. But there are techniques that can help keep pessimism at bay no matter what your goal is.

Lifehack suggests that pessimism can turn into a habit, but it's a habit that you can break. Whatever you want to achieve, there will almost certainly be obstacles along the way. Overcoming these can be as rewarding as reaching your ultimate goal.

Optimists instead focus on enjoying the journey, fully aware of the future result they want, but not fixating on it. They find joy in the process of getting there. Let go of the results. Allow the results to flow from following the path with a right attitude.

Having a routine for the day-and sticking to it-makes things easier and helps to ensure that any setbacks do not knock you sideways. Remaining optimistic can be hard, but practice makes it easier.
