An optimist is someone who is more likely to expect a positive outcome than a negative one. But it’s more than simply seeing the glass as half-full rather than half-empty. Optimists see the opportunity in all situations — even in the less-than-ideal. We’re the ones who figure out how to make lemonade when life gives us lemons. That means, we are adept at looking at the bigger picture, finding creative solutions and never giving up.
