pessimistic people have a very small chance to succeed in life. They usually see the bad or the rotten part of anything. Optimimistic people on the contrary see the good sides of anything. Hope is the word that lacks the vocabulary of a pessimistic person, thus if all hope is gone then theres nowhere that these type of people would go but down.

As a pessimistic person who has succeeded in her life, my answer is yes. It depends on the person and the circumstances. I'm normally a very pessimistic person. You've heard how people always say "is the glass half full or half empty"? Well, my answer would normally be "there IS no glass." However, my pessimism drove me even harder than most people, maybe. Because I viewed everything as more of a challenge, I worked harder than most to achieve what I wanted. I'm still a pessimist more often than not. I tend to expect the worst so I won't be disappointed when it happens, and I'll be prepared if it does. Of course, if the good comes along instead, all the better!
