Why Bill Gates and Warren Buffet Believe in Optimism

Bill Gates and Warren Buffett Reveal the Secret to Successful Leadership in Just 1 Word:

  • “While the evidence supports Gates’ argument, he’s careful to say that ‘being an optimist doesn’t mean you ignore tragedy and injustice. It means you’re inspired to look for people making progress on those fronts, and to help spread that progress more widely.’ If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you must–by definition–be an outlier. You must have a vision other people don’t share, inspire others to join you, and keep hustling when others are giving up. Building your optimism muscles will help you achieve all three.”
