Basic yet indicative facts and interpretations

Today I find myself “optinistic”, and if I were to tell you why, it’s for a couple of solid reasons I thought about…a handful of basic facts driving me to identify opportunities in the imminent crisis. Here are some…

These facts, I’m certain, are just a glimpse of the opportunities at hand for the “optinistic”. There are always more opportunities than one can readily find. Let’s look for them.

“Optinism”, or the conscious choice to think positively

If you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering…“optinism”? Written with an “n”? Must be a typo, right? Wrong! It’s a word we just coined, right here at Born Interactive, to designate a new state of mind to tackle the upcoming year: we “opt in”, willingly, to face all the uncertainty that 2009 is bringing.

For several months now, the global financial and real estate sectors have been in crisis. There is even talk of a recession on a global scale, expected to impact all sectors and economies large and small. Clearly, 2009 is concealing a lot of uncertainty. Nevertheless, I truly believe that through positive thinking, hard work, and intelligent planning – through “optinism” – uncertainty can be turned into a certainty of progress and success.

What makes me think so? Is this belief coincidental? Well, as a 38-year-old Lebanese citizen, I’ve witnessed more than the typical share of daily dilemmas and economic disasters, but I’ve also witnessed firsthand how resilience, persistence and positive thinking can be the key for overcoming any crisis.
