Optimism and Pessimism – New World Encyclopedia
Optimalists tend to have more intrinsic, inward desires, with a motivation to learn, while perfectionists are highly motivated by a need to

consistently prove themselves “worthy

Ben-Shahar speaks a whole word when he says :
Optimalism allows for failure in pursuit of a goal, and expects that while the trend of activity is towards the positive, it is not necessary to always succeed while striving towards goals. This (logically formed) basis in reality prevents the optimalist from being overwhelmed in the face of failure

Henri Bergson on maturity:

“To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.”
