Who is a Certified Optimist™? Said simply, a Certified Optimist is someone who understands our work so far as presented in our "video-textbook" Optimum Theory: The Theory of Everything, but being a Certified Optimist is so much more than that.
An Optimist is someone who understands the material Universe from first principles at a world class level. Maybe that's why our Institute has been liked by some of the world's leading thinkers & doers, and our Optimum Theory was first to present principles that would later be utilized by the U.S. Military to model nuclear physics, artificial intelligence and to build the world's fastest computer chip, The Cerebras Engine.
For an Optimist the Universe just makes sense. An Optimist is able to quickly assess a situation and guide an optimal path toward greater happiness, health, understanding & success for him or herself, family & community.
Certification is free for our members and is conducted through face-to-face video-chat using Zoom and typically takes between 1 and 2 hours. It is important that you have watched the complete Optimum Theory: The Theory of Everything video before our conversation. Agreement with Optimum Theory is not required to be a Certified Optimist, only understanding of the theory's principles is required - you can even debate against Optimum Theory during our conversation and still earn your Certification. There is no pressure to talk about yourself during our conversation, but we would like to get to know you: your interests, skill-set, and aspirations so our community can help build you up so that you can live your optimum life - that's what being an Optimist is all about!
To become a Certified Optimist, use the "Contact The Optimum Institute" tool at the bottom of this page and tell us when you are available to Zoom video-chat (provide several possible dates and times to avoid scheduling conflict) and we will get back to you within 24-hours to confirm.
