Following a conversation in my Master Class about the media’s role in eroding consumer and business confidence, I surfed the web for random stories from a variety of news sources. Google gave me access to 4,500 journals.
Leaving aside the non-English sources, much of what was reported ranged from the depressing (Women’s jobs are disappearing on Wall Street -Forbes) to the ridiculous (body odor being considered for ID by the US Department of Homeland Security - Washington Times).
How much of the news really contributes to your daily productivity, success and peace of mind?
I’m up for a thrival mentality. How about you? it's not about ignoring what's happening, just finding a balance of perspective.
I'd like to hear the stories of businesses and people succeeding, expanding, generating jobs and opportunities. Send them to me by email, or, even better, post a response to this blog so others can see them as well.
I’ll kick things off. It took some digging, but I found a great story (parents, you’ll love this) courtesy of Forbes, on how six kids made a million dollars before their 20th birthday.
Let’s hear more!
