Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress.
Optimism makes you a dreamer; you learn to think big, aim high. Of course, an optimist with a weak work principle is nothing more than a dreamer. A dreamer who stops short of doing is unlikely to get successful on a constant basis. And that may lead him to pessimism. So, the next natural step that optimism should lead to is making you a doer. Optimism is that all-consuming high that compels you to make your dreams come true. This is where you walk the path.
Optimists find themselves in a self-regenerating cycle of dreaming and doing. It is an ongoing process of dreaming, doing, getting there, and beginning afresh with a newer, bigger dream and greater action. Walking the path, one step at a time, is how you evolve.
