A sharp and innovative mind is one that derives something useful from every¬†situation in life. But positive thinking sometimes gets a bad rap for being superficial. Critics label optimists as simple-minded and Pollyanna. If people don’t sufficiently recognize how bad things really are, they’re fooling themselves. This cynical perspective fails to recognize this: Your reality boils down to how you feel, how you feel depends on how you think and interpret events. A well-developed ability to find something useful in every experience means you’re a creative genius…

At the art of life.
