What’s Right With The World?

Updated on February 10, 2014

As the changes and the challenges in the world appear overwhelming, every day we are bombarded with negative trends, stories, statistics and reports about what’s wrong with the world. We often ignore and dump some vital moments and reports that deserve our full attention to enjoy and share what’s right with our world.


In order for you not to totally lose yourself, define and build your perspectives about the world on “a glass half-empty basis”, my goal is to illuminate on some of the events that you and I know that has a tremendous progressive impact on the world today and will continue to give hope and energy to the optimist like you and I.

A Happy You , Creates a Happy Worl


With our limited visions and our mind being driven by fear which pervades our society today, we are compel only to seeing what’s wrong with our world, our environment, our culture, our relationships, our nations, our economy and belief systems. Pulse for a while and consider: “What’s right with our world today?” The media has played a significant role in shaping the way we think and act on a daily basis. The media and the other powerful drivers of global change have been promoting systems and potentials that await humanity if only we listen carefully, selectively and act accordingly. Therefore, it means that the media and the other mind movers in our society today have the power to influence us to choose what we believe and this could either empower us or harm us depending on the choices we make of them. It becomes necessary that what we believe is a vital force in this present time because they shape our world-view which ultimately drives our decisions and actions.
