Another positive person is Reggie Fils-Aime, President of Nintendo America. His fame in the gaming console world stems from a speech he made a few years ago when Nintendo was struggling and he was head of marketing and sales: "My name is Reggie. I'm about kickin' ass, I'm about takin' names, and we're about makin' games." He didn't write it, according to this article in the Seattle Times. But he gave it and it was a hit with Nintendo fans. Bold? Brash? Yep. And completely in synch with his steadfast solid optimism and positivity. His longtime girlfriend describes him like this:
Fils-Aime is unfailingly optimistic, friends say. Sanner said she has never once heard him complain — about anything.
"He is not given to any sort of negative thinking," she said. "He doesn't worry, he doesn't waffle, he doesn't waver, he doesn't agonize."
Fils-Aime says he gets that trait from his mother, who always saw the bright side even though her own life took dramatic turns.
