Publisher's Summary

Introducing a powerful, humor-filled, and inspiring new audio program from two thought leaders - who also happen to be die-hard optimists - Dr. Tony Alessandra and Dr. Terry Paulson.

It's called The Optimism Advantage, and in it, Terry and Tony introduce real-world stories and practical strategies that turn positive psychological research into insights on how you can produce incredible results, year after year after year.

Simply listen, and you'll trade feelings of frustration, doubt, and stress for the flexible optimism, innovative resourcefulness, and strategic persistence that the unshakably confident people exhibit every day.

Among the many benefits you'll gain when you use their 10 qualities to wield the full power of optimism:

  • You'll find your own Transforming Purpose that helps provide focus and meaning to the optimistic beliefs, choices, and actions you take.
  • You'll learn to be Continually Adaptable by being flexible and embracing change in today's economy and your workplace, and when dealing with people you love.
  • You'll cultivate a Bias for Action to keep your life moving quickly toward the very goals you set.
  • You'll build Unshakable Confidence, leading to awe-inspiring results.
  • You'll learn to be Relationally Connected by building an optimistic network that works for you.

The materials are ok, though nothing special.

For an avid self development listener, this audiobook is mostly a summary of tips. Overall it's useful, but doesn't really elaborate too much. The interaction between the 2 readers is a bit weird, i didn't get if it's scripted or natural. Mostly i felt like there's 2 people trying to push some optimism into me, i mean, they're all into it on every sentence, takes a toll on your concentration. Also, some of the exercises take a long time to complete, but the authors treat it as just a small step, e.g. "Go write what's ur purpose in life... now let's..." and more stuff, without digging deeper in how to come up with that purpose.
