Contagious optimism, indeed. And, after even after just one hello, you might well have caught some from David Mezzapelle. Because when David, author of Contagious Optimism, walks into a room there seems to be a shift in the atmosphere, a feel that things will be top notch. It is a feeling you can trust because David is a natural when it comes to recognizing the positive.
There is so much that has been said about the power of positive thinking and what it can do for improving personal life, and it all makes sense. Even in songs we are encouraged to accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative and not mess with Mr. In Between. But, how to translate this onto action?
Life is, for most of us, a matter of peaks and pits, but David lets us know that falling into a discouraging hollow is no reason to keep from the climb back to the top. In, fact, it may be just the lesson we need. David was the boy who liked falling off his bicycle because he knew it meant he could do better next time. An athletic blunder was a valuable lesson in how to improve. He has, by nature, approached all his life with this attitude of seeing the upside of the downside.
Even his corporate history with Goliath Technology, the company he founded, was run with such emotional buoyancy and an innovative internship program that he set the standard for many organizations today. Once word got out about how David lived his life and what he offered to those in his orbit, he was asked to write a book.
To hear David talk about his history and personal philosophy is a hint of what he offers in terms of encouragement. He is a talented listener, in whose hands personal information can be put to good use for personal improvement. He takes the art of positive thinking to the level of something very active where you are in charge and can change the way you life your life. The best news may be that once you see the concept as David presents it, you may well find out that you are already a much more optimistic person than you thought you were and well on the road to where you want to be. With some well-guided fine-tuning you can get there. Yes, optimism is contagious, and with some work you can get be lucky enough to get an incurable dose of it.
