All of us time to time might transit through the different moods and mindsets of being either - a pessimist, an optimist, a realist, an escapist or an opportunist.

As long as these are temporary and you bounce back from the un-resourceful and disempowering mindsets to an empowering one - it is perfectly alright.

Living a life with negative, harmful and damaging mindset - can have long-term impact on yourself as well as on people around you.

Pessimists often interpret negative events as internal, global, and stable - whereas positive events for them are temporary and unstable

In this article we will discuss - how to be a positive empowering opportunist - instead of being a predatory and harmful opportunist.

All the great thinkers balance optimism and pessimism - because always seeing the world through rose-colored glasses or seeing with catastrophic eyes -can become a perfect recipes for hurts, pains, stress, frustrations and disappointments.
