Q: What is the difference between positive and optimistic ?
A: Optimism is hopefulness and confidence about the future or the success of something, while positivity is the tendency to be positive or optimistic in attitude.

He was in a positive mood after hearing the good news.



There are multiple meanings of both of the words.

1. Optimism makes an assumption about the world. It assumes that everything will work out alright in the end. On the other hand, positive thinking makes no assumptions about how the external world will be. Instead, it considers how I/we will respond to external circumstances.

2. Optimism is a personality trait you inherit, while positive thinking is a choice you make.

3. Leaders with the personality trait of optimism can be accused of being blind to negative reports or dismissive of obstacles. Their assessments of the future or of their capabilities may seem naive. People around the optimistic leader may grow concerned that the organization is heading for a cliff, and no one seems alarmed.
But the leader who chooses positive thinking is clear-eyed about obstacles and even serious problems. The positive leader acknowledges these challenges and works towards solutions. They do not ignore or minimize the problems, but they move forward with the purposeful belief that a solution can be found.
