He has just turned 94!
The first thing we did when he came into the room was take a photo with the group. Everyone of us was holding a cup cake.
Obviously he was in a very good mood and he started to eat the cake while we were just posing for the picture.
Than he started to talk about life. Her daughter, Judith Beck who is also a psychologist was on his side.
Be optimistic in your on life, optimism can be learned.
You can decide wether you look at the negative or the positive side. Many things, almost everything has a positiv and a negative side. You can look at the negative or focus on the postive. He used this example: I want to go outside get a lot of sunshine but it starts to rain, so i think that´s great I can stay indoor and work on a paper, or if somebody doesn´t answer a phonecall, then I think „oh that´s good probably he is to busy......“
One can have a much happier life thinking positively than otherwise. That´s the secret.
