Someone shared this Colin Powell quote with me early in my career, “Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier.” My dad actually had a different way of saying it... He would say “It’s impossible. But doable!” It’s about looking into challenging situations or even a crisis knowing that there’s always a path to success waiting to be found. It’s amazing how many solutions you can find to a problem when you already believe that there must be one.
