Learning to think like the new man

Jollyblogger David Wayne has really gotten me going with his review and reflections on Learned Optimism by research psychologist Martin Seligman. David took an online learned optimism test and discovered he's very, very pessimistic. And that characteristic has serious implications for both leadership and discipleship. Although it's sometimes known as a "self-help" book, Dr. Seligman's work is orders of magnitude beyond positive-thinking platitudes. I recommend reading David's post and, perhaps, Dr. Seligman's book.
