    “Do you believe that this will turn out for the best? Do you believe that the work that you’re doing today matters? That’s what optimism really is.” -Dr. Amber Selking  [05:23] “We can’t do anything great by ourselves. But man, does the energy and conviction with which we pursue that on our heart, when that stimulates us internally, it connects us with other people, which just multiplies the force that which we can conquer and tackle and go after and believe in and ignite and inspire others on the journey around us.” -Dr. Amber Selking  [08:24] “So what they found is that optimists in these moments, particularly task-focused moments, optimists tend to be problem-focused as they cope with it. What in this situation is actually in my control? And how can I problem solve here so that we can continue to take steps forward?” -Dr. Amber Selking  [10:30] “Optimism is saying ‘I believe in a better future and I am going to get to work to make that happen.’” -Dr. Amber Selking  [13:11]

Great podcast

Just found out about Dr. Selking. The first season was great and I’m working my way through the rest of the episodes.

Mari Hekflynn ,

Easy to apply

Amber Selking, I wish I had a fraction of her charisma. She is positive and insightful. Has a lot compelling brain data and wisdom to share to her sports groups as well as to regular people like me.

When I listen to her podcast I always feel encouraged to take that next concrete step toward personal growth. She makes her listeners feel understood (yep, life can be hard) and at the same time strong and gritty (but you have what it takes and can become the best version of yourself).

Definitely recommend!
