Sklover’s Thoughts for the Work Week

Sklover’s Thoughts for the Work Week

“Optimism is a force multiplier.”

– Colin Powell, Former Secretary of State

There is nothing that can make people, and groups of people, more effective in their tasks and successful in achieving their goals than is optimism. This is especially the case of optimism in the face of difficulty, danger and disillusionment all around you. Simply put, if you believe you can, and you believe you will, it is just so much more likely that you will do so, no matter what may be the odds against you. So, make this your own personal and private mantra: “Yes – I can. Yes – I will.” Repeat it over and over again, and, simply put, “It WILL happen.”
