Focus On: Optimism

what it’s all about


Optimism means staying forward-facing and solution-oriented as the conversation unfolds, rather than focusing on the negative or being stubborn about your points and thoughts. It’s also about assuming good intentions, and believing in possibility. You’re in the right place if you’ve mastered the basics, and want to think more deeply about how to make space for lasting optimism in your life.

If you’re just starting out, or if you’re new to The Hearty Fig, the best place for you to start is to download the Brave Communication Blueprint, which will introduce you to five core communication tools (including this one!) and how to integrate them into the conversations you’re already having.
