We have been trained to be negative, pessimistic, cynical, skeptical, and frightened.

We have been trained to believe that these traits are practical and will enable us to more effectively navigate our lives through a mine field of chaos, horror and confusion because we will know what to realistically expect and be prepared for it.

They’re not practical. They don’t make us better equipped to deal with a difficult future.

By virtue of the fact that they contribute to our depression, anxiety, anger and belief in victimhood, they make us less equipped to deal with a difficult future.

They give us tunnel vision, they distract us from potential opportunities that exist all around us which we don’t see because we’re in a doom and gloom mode that narrows our vision.
