1. They Go to a Job They’re Passionate About
If you wake up dreading the day and have to drag yourself out of bed to get to work, “it might be time to start looking for greener pastures,” says Ilya Pozin, Pluto TV’s chief growth officer and co-founder, in a LinkedIn blog post. He notes that optimistic people choose jobs or careers for which they have a genuine passion. “For optimists, work is more than just an opportunity for a paycheck. It’s also an opportunity to learn, grow, and do what you love.” Eventually, your happiness and satisfaction at work will seep into every other aspect of your life, too.
