Tell Me Something Good...Today

Thank you for testing your curiosity and visiting this website. We hope that your visit will be enlightening as well as uplifting, especially considering the world as we are lead to see it today.

The idea for this site came to being as a result of two recent experiences: First, a seminar presentation by Clint Swindel in which his premise for looking at life differently was….'tell me something good!' instead of ….something negative! Secondly, everyday we seem to be bombarded via TV, radio, news broadcasts, etc. by negative news and a world that is in the doldrums of time.

It seems as though we are confronted everyday by a worldwide frenzy of fear, a combination of sad feelings and resigned to an outcome that we cannot control.

Well who says it has to be that way? Are we to let outside forces, even those out of our control, to shape and control our lives?

A formula I live my life by is: A + D = R. When we are AWARE of our circumstances and we take DELIBERATE actions we can control our outcomes which translates into RESULTS.

Can we control bad decisions of financial institutions resulting in their failures, or the ineptness and lack of responsibility of CEO's? We all know the answer to that question.

What happens to our society when we face natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, etc.? Do we give in to the 'fever' of negativism? No, we rebuild, resurrect from the despair and move on.

It has been said that we are in a society that feeds off 'instant gratification'. Is that to say we are conversely in a society that also feeds off 'instant negativity'? Are communication outlets (i.e. TV, radio, newspapers, Internet) to blame for helping to fan the flames so to speak? Do these same communication outlets provide us with as much positive feelings as they do negative feelings? Watch the news on television on any given day and the number of negative reports will easily outweigh the positive ones.

If we were to take heed from some of these outlets we would probably come to the conclusion that the world is coming to an end. Or we would be diagnosed with 'nationwide depression' where we would only want to bury our heads in the sand or just ignore what is really going on around us.

Personally, I would prefer that we show the world our confidence rather than a tidal wave of hopelessness fed by a dearth of negatively oriented news and views about how worried we should be that there isn't a light at the end of the tunnel and there's no way out of this mess.

We must demonstrate our faith in our abilities, our talents, and our future. We must not wallow in our worry, be reckless in our finances and spend what we don't have. We need to focus on enjoying life to its fullest….everyday. If we don't do this, then our lives and the economy truly will grind to a halt.

Please help us avoid this from happening and share your positive experiences and encounters by wearing the button "TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD…TODAY". POST your comments and share your stories of what happened when you shared this expression with others…..Go to our blog.
