The Power of Optimism:
  by Alan Loy McGinnis

    "What is the source of this extreme self-confidence
found in all optimists, this conviction that they can 
accomplish great things?  Do they have an exaggerated
view of their abilities?  Usually not.  Many optimists I
know are quick to point out that others have talents 
superior to theirs. 

    Yet they are confident they can accomplish almost
anything and have almost anything they want. The intangible
quality that separates many successful people from talented
people who fail is the sheer force of their wills.  They
have stronger passions, greater desires than average.

    A young man who aspired to the study of law once
wrote Lincoln for advice, Lincoln replied, "If you are
resolutely determined to make a lawyer of  yourself, the
thing is more than half done already.  Always bear in mind
that your own resolution to succeed is more important than 
any other thing."

    To sum it up, optimists are people of action because
they believe they have a great deal of control over their
future.  They are likely to carry with them a fervent 
desire for success, and they know that their passion can
propel them for long distances when other people - 
people who sometimes have greater talent - will fall by
the wayside."
