Positive Thinking is Hogwash - really?
This week a well-known leader and author posted a short segment totally trashing thinking, dreaming, imagining, wishing, hoping, meditating, or praying as ways to get closer to success. Apparently being a robot will suffice - as long as you are "doing". I beg to differ. Questions: 1. Is it useless to think positively? 2. Is dreaming just a childish mind game to avoid the reality of my life? 3. Do I really get to choose the life I live?

You know the old saying - If you keep doing the same things and expect different results, you're insane. A listener suspects that of himself. What about you?

I love cooking for people. How can I open a restaurant? 2. I’ve been burdened with the thought that I am not very good at anything. 3.

Despite any hardships we may have experienced in the last 18 months, 74% of Americans say 2020 made them more aware of the needs of others and more generous as a result.
