It is the World Voice (the media – the newspapers, TV, films and songs) that speaks of how tough life can be. It is the World Voice that magnifies the roadblocks to happiness and success. Have you ever watched a soap opera on TV? Have you ever listened to the evening news? The formula is 90% bad news and 10% good news.
If you do not agree with the World Voice, you are considered peculiar and looked upon as an outsider. I say to you, “It is not normal to have to struggle so hard to simply get by.” Each day put forth a little effort to look at life beyond the laments of the World Voice. Take the time to pay attention to that which is real. There is far more in life to help you than harm you. Trust that fact. Act on that fact. Prove the world voice wrong, and your life will go right. You are destined for sweet success if you make it a habit to trade beauty for ashes and praise for the spirit of heaviness. You may ask, “That’s all very lovely, but is it practical?” Life responds with a resounding, “YES!”
