Affirmation:


I know, without a doubt, that most people are good and decent and kind. Ok, I so have some doubt … but … I'm still 97.5% sure.


Action Plan:


With all of the bad news on TV, radio, and even Social Media, we can often get so caught up in all of the negative shit that people do, that we can start to believe that people are just schmucks! Unfortunately, we seem to have become addicted to sharing the absolute worst stories about people.


So, today, not only do I want you to take a break from ALL regular news (relax, it’s just for today), but I also want you to actively seek out good news. And that means that you have to skip Facebook and other social media too, if your feed is generally filled with negative news-like information.



There are several websites that focus on good news. The Good News Network and Some Good News with John Krasinski (web series) are two that I have seen, and I'm sure you could find others. Read about the GREAT things that people are doing … and newsflash … there’s a lot!


I want you to read it all until you tilt the scales in the other direction … until you are amazed by how incredible people are. Until you start feeling like, “Day-um, I had better step up my game and start doing some good in this world!” Until you maybe even get bored with it … “yeah, yeah, people are great … what else is new?”


This world is filled with amazing, incredible people! Oh, and another newsflash … you are one of them!


Spiral level: Really Low, Pretty Shitty, Meh

Use when feeling: people, ugh!
