About This Class

In this course, you will learn about the breakthrough science discovered by Martin Seligman on the two different ways of explaining the bad and good events that happen in your life.

We will dive in, break them down and help you understand what makes you a pessimist or optimist. This is not bad vs good thinking, the law of attraction or the secret. It’s science based on research.

You will learn how to make meaning out of the things that happen in your life in a way that will help you avoid depression, anxiety and failure and instead get closer to success because this is the way successful people think.

If you take a sample of successful people you will see that they think like optimists and avoid pessimism in the way described in the course.

Take this course today and get closer to achieving your next big thing in life by learning to be optimistic no matter what happens.
