It’s no secret that stress and uncertainty are inevitable adversaries in today’s culture, and—if left unchecked—can impact everything.
But the most powerful tool in overcoming these complicated feelings is actually quite simple...
An optimistic outlook is a choice. It is a self-fulfilling spark that turns challenges into opportunities.
And it can even be a catalyst for better physical, emotional, and financial health.
Optimism doesn’t always come naturally, but its benefits can be adopted and its behaviors learned.
And with over 150 years of experience helping people succeed, Frost Bank is spotlighting the impacts of optimism like never before.
In a recent study, Frost Bank examined the specific habits of optimistic people that can measurably improve our lives, particularly as it relates to our financial health.
Optimists are curious and seek new information.
