What Optimism Means
True optimism is a mindset about determination, resilience and grit.
At Frost, we borrow our definition from psychology—dispositional optimism—meaning optimists feel they have the tools to create a positive outcome for themselves. Their expectations have been verified by their own experiences. Optimists view their habits and behaviors as the why and how behind making good things happen.
