The recent MOOD of America (Measuring Optimism, Outlook, and Direction) survey presented by Lincoln Financial Group reveals that women are decidedly more optimistic than men, with three-quarters of women saying they are optimistic about the future compared to only two-thirds of men.

The survey uncovered that 79% of "take charge" women feel that there are no limits to what they can do or accomplish, and a vast majority (93%) believe they can always find a way to solve their problems. In addition, individuals in control of their lives generally feel that success in life is determined by forces within their control.

The MOOD survey showed that in today's society, optimism comes from a place of strength and confidence. Click here to see the full MOOD survey.
