Realistic optimism—a key to burnout prevention

Work can often feel like a series of crises, piling all over each other and burying us underneath. It can feel like there's no way out! But it doesn't have to be this way. Resilient people tend to face the same world, the same challenges in a day, with realistic optimism. In this video from our Resilience Masterclass: 10 Critical Skills course, you'll learn to recognize the tendency to frame experiences from a pessimistic perspective and, instead, develop an optimistic (yet realistic) approach to your environment.
