Why does everybody try to tell me how ‘bad’ things are?

When I ask them to talk about their own life instead of globally – I find things are not as bad as they are making out. In fact, before our conversation is over they are usually surprised at the opportunities available to them in the present circumstances!

I encourage you to look closely for the opportunities available to you right now. There are incredible things happening in the world.

And if you have intimate knowledge of someone who is truly in bad straights (not things you have heard on the news) then do your best to help them the best you can. Their bad times will pass.

As will the news media’s take on the world situation…
