There’s much incompetence, injustice, negativity and outright evil in the world, but you don’t have to take it personally. Instead of letting it bring you down, let it inspire you to live at an even higher level. It’s easy to get discouraged by difficulties and misfortune. Yet it is just as easy to become positively, purposefully determined when you make that choice. There are all sorts of people who have all sorts of agendas. Your best choice is to live by your own, most positive and life-affirming agenda. There’s no need to get into petty arguments about which way is best. Simply express your values and opinions by the way you live. Adopt a positive agenda, and re-commit yourself to it each day. Let it guide your thoughts, feelings and actions, so you won’t be recklessly tossed around by the negativity of others. Live with a positive agenda, not in order to feel superior but rather so you can give the best of yourself to all of life. Live with a positive agenda, and experience the fulfillment of a life that has sincere meaning and purpose.
