8:05 am | Chasing The Bright Side: Why Optimism is The Secret Ingredient to Success with Keynote Speaker, Jess Ekstorm, Founder of Headbands of Hope
Anyone who’s ever done something great, created something new, shattered tradition or changed patterns had to start with the mindset that they could make it better. Optimism is the rooted belief that there’s something good on the other side. In fact, studies show that optimism can be linked to a longer life span and triggers positive cognitive responses associated with greater flexibility, innovation and problem solving.
By using her story of creating a million dollar company from her dorm room, Jess talks about the three essential tools to practicing optimism: confidence mindset, failure management, and purpose activation.
Most tweeted line from this talk: Success is not what it looks like to others, it’s what it feels like to you.
