“Optimism – The Way Out of Loss!”

Event date: 14. September 2023

The sudden and unexpected death of Ulrich Schweiker has led us to this topic. Ulrich was one of the four founding members of the Deidesheimer Kreis in 2004.

Optimism is a powerful tool for progress, resilience, and proactive action. It is not about denying reality but about choosing an attitude of hope and self-confidence that empowers us to actively shape our reality.

“When the last errors are consumed, nothing remains as the last partner,” says Berthold Brecht. Nothing as the ultimate consequence after all errors are consumed? Is it then even possible to develop alternative perspectives to this pessimism?

Our challenge is to recognize and internalize the complementarity of optimism and pessimism. Pessimism is not an alternative but – like Yin and Yang – a necessary counterpart to optimism. They are not separate states but complement each other, allowing for a more comprehensive understanding of life. By adopting this view, we can learn to accept both the joys and the pains of these days with an open heart and a clear mind. At least, that is our hope.

How do I experience the interplay between perceived negative reality, positive self-awareness, and the confidence that a positive future is possible? What perspectives, mechanisms, and strategies have proven effective for me in the past? How do I create and nurture a culture of optimism in my life and as an entrepreneur?
