I personally feel that to be able to get better you must possess utopian thinking, but be aware of possibilities of dystopian outcomes. I say this because it is good to think positive but you have to be prepared for any negative outcomes so that you are able to face them and not get immediately stopped. Now with this being said I am not saying only focus on the negative, just because that is not an efficient nor good state of mind to be in. I am just simply stating that you have to be prepared for all possible outcomes so that you can be better prepared to overcome them. An example that I can use is how the Tesla Autopilot AI is able to predict possible car crashes by monitoring multiple cars in-front so that the driver is protected even from things they can not detect. This has been proven to protect the driver from serious accidents by automatically braking when it detects unsafe anomalies in the cars around them.
