‘An Astronaut’s Guide to Optimism’, An Inspirational Video Starring Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield

“An Astronaut’s Guide to Optimism” is an inspirational video starring Canadian astronaut and author Chris Hadfield (previously) as he shares some reasons to be optimistic about the future. Hadfield also gives detailed data about why life on Earth is better now than it has ever been in the past.

Hadfield is the author of An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth, a book about the lessons he learned in his career as an astronaut.

Our world is not as bad a place as we often feel it to be. It is easy to look to the future and lament on how far there is left to go, but sometimes it is helpful to stop and reflect on just how far we’ve come.

This New Years, my resolution is to help make our world a better place. What’s yours?
