Optimists generally believe that people and events are inherently good. They have a so-called "positive" outlook on life, believing that things will work out in the end. A common conundrum illustrates optimism versus pessimism with the question, does one regard a glass 50% filled as half full or as half empty? The point of living and of being an optimist, is to be foolish enough to believe the best is yet to come. (Peter Ustinov) For myself I am an optimist - it does not seem to be much use being anything else. (Sir Winston Churchill) We want the club to be THE place where you can visit anytime day or night and share your thoughts and feelings on living a POSITIVE life. We would welcome your contributions on any topic and the more you have to say the better the club will become. To join the club just press the 'Join Club' heading on the left of this page Freddy and Steven
Quotes from club members Great support happening here for each other - a great model of Ecademy values in action! ... Elaine Gold It's good to have something celebrating life in a culture that seems resolutely focused on the down side of things - Anthony Warren CEO, Redshots There's no pufferey, boasting, flaming and all that kind of very unnecessary stuff. People here are warm, realistic and highly supportive of each other. -- 'Bayo "Mr B" Akinola-Odusola Thank you for organising such a pleasant and enjoyable evening. The location, weather, conversation and company were just perfect - it is one of the nicest and most relaxed 'networking' events I have ever been to, to the point it didn't feel like networking, it just felt like being out for a pleasant Saturday afternoon with a group of good friends. -- 'Nancy "Tiger Two" Williams ' - 12/06/06.

OPTIMIST CREED Promise Yourself To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble
