Did you know there are some genetic factors that influence your optimism?
Most personality traits are determined about 50% by your genes and family origin. So you may have been born optimistic. Or pessimistic.
When you’re a child you tend to be more optimistic. As people get older, they start to buy into the bullshit around them and progressively become more pessimistic. While women are generally more optimistic than men, they are also more pessimistic.
How can that be? Because they have a greater emotional range. So while they are more optimistic, they are also more susceptible to depression.
So what if you are born more disposed to be pessimistic? You can change. Don’t use your DNA as an excuse. All that does is diminish what you can get in life. So we’ll look at how you can deal with this more on the next post. And please check in now with any suggestion you have.
