The Power of Optimism – January 2018

Changing Tides - January 2018

With all that’s going on in the world today, it’s easy to be pessimistic. Thanks to global media, we become instantly aware of every natural disaster, military threat and wrong-doing as it happens. This news arrives so fast and so frequently that it can easily skew one’s perception of the state of the world. But it doesn’t have to.

While many of our media outlets maintain high journalistic standards, many more appear to be motivated by profit, giving undue weight to stories about crime, conflict and poverty while under-reporting news of positive human behavior and progress. But the facts tell a different story. Our world today is safer and more productive than ever before.  Never have human beings been healthier and better educated. For real statistics on the positive side of life and to learn more about why you should be optimistic about 2018 check out the Getting Better Foundation.
