It always seems a good attitude to be willing and face our problems with pride and optimism – seeing the glass as half full is a state of mind, which puts us in a “winning” position from the start. The reality, however, sometimes brakes our momentum, acts as a shield an raises red flags, while we reevaluate risks. The triple crisis that we are enduring makes us act this way: fearless and in denial of the vicissitudes as eternal optimists, but also with the rawness and hardships that the moment imposes us, raising extreme prudence and attention to the facts.
