We All Need to Persevere in the Face of Difficulties — Opinion

President Trump has promised that a vaccine is on the near horizon.

President Trump has promised that a vaccine is on the near horizon. Twelve months from today, and for decades thereafter, regardless of the forthcoming breakthroughs in treating Covid-19, virus-related issues and other concerns will linger. Against this backdrop, optimism for oneself, for one’s family and friends, and indeed, for humanity, seems challenging.

A Professor of Microbiology and Immunology in the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University, named Dr. Vincent Racaniello, PhD, has some startling news. Based on his studies, at least 320,000 different viruses currently infect mammals, and that doesn’t count other viruses that affect other vertebrates species. In all, the professor concludes that there are tens of millions of viruses in the world; a figure so large, it is virtually unknowable.

Now and Forever: Optimism

A question for our era: In times of high uncertainty, is maintaining an optimistic outlook warranted or even possible? Yes. Research reveals that some people are apparently born optimistic; some individuals naturally exude optimism, often to the utter bewilderment of others. Although it seems as if prevailing circumstances dictate how we will act and how we will feel, probing slightly deeper shows that that can be a false cause-effect relationship.

If you’ve passed a certain age and are thinking, “I have this big dream, but I’m too old,” take heart. If you’re in your thirties, forties, or fifties, mile-high goal achievement could still be in store for you – even if you’re past 60, 70, or 80! Why do I make such a statement?

Human longevity is increasing. Insurance actuaries indicate that you might live longer than you think you will. There’s no telling what you’re capable of two, three, or four decades hence. The legendary Grandma Moses became famous as a painter in her seventies and eighties and still was creating notable works of art past age one hundred. Some day soon, an octogenarian – an eighty year old – will be elected president of the United States.

A Second Career?

In Age Wave, Dr. Ken Dychtwald explains how it’s likely that you’ll have several careers within a lifetime, some totally unrelated to each other. After all, if you graduate college at age 22, you can work for 15 or 17 years in human resources or in training, not even hit your forties, work 25 years in another industry, and even receive your pension, and still work another 12 to 15 in another profession, and only be in your 70’s!

As average life spans extend beyond eighty and ninety, and the health and well-being of the typical professional continues on at an advanced age, it’s not unrealistic to assume that you might achieve some spectacular goal in an arena of your life that is not even in consciousness for you at this moment.

Seeds Planted Long Ago

The seeds of what you might be doing twenty, thirty, and forty years from now are likely already in formation, if only at the cellular level! When I took the course Technologies for Creating, designed by Robert Fritz, author of The Path of Least Resistance, I encountered one of the most powerful affirmations of my life to this point. Imagine, Fritz encourages, that everything that you’ve ever done is preparation for what’s coming next…

All the successes, all the failures, all the things that went well, all the things that went up in flames, and all of your experiences are learning to be applied for the highest good for what is coming in your life.

So, in a manner of speaking, you’ve incurred no down time – no wasted jobs, wasted years, or wasted efforts. Your life has been a laboratory of sorts, helping you to prepare for some grand good the likes of which might still not be clear to you.

To Boldly Go

As the philosophers say, the pattern of the universe (or, more specifically for your purposes, the pattern of your life) is right there, visible in everything you do. You have only to recognize how to work with your strengths and limitations, aptitudes and blind spots so as to transcend yourself.

Don’t live life as if looking through a rear view mirror. Boldly go where you’ve never gone before, and eventually set and reach goals that in an earlier time might have seemed beyond your essence, yet on some level, perhaps were within you all along.

Save conservative media!

Now what?

Democrats are just bad people. It’s really that simple. They still can’t believe President Trump won the 2016 election and they’re willing to do everything in their power to ensure he loses in November. Lying doesn’t faze them. Not one bit. Check this out, via The Daily Wire: The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have both reportedly confirmed that a laptop allegedly belonging to Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is not part of a Russian disinformation campaign.

Trump Trolls Reporter Who Had COVID-19 for Not Wearing Mask At the White House (Watch)

Got her good!

Nobody can troll better than President Trump. The thing is, he’s usually out in front of an issue before anybody else can see a problem – and he’s generally right. Check out how POTUS nailed a biased reporter on Tuesday. From The Daily Wire: President Donald Trump released a video on Tuesday afternoon of “60 Minutes” reporter Lesley Stahl—who had a serious case of the coronavirus that required hospitalization earlier this year—not wearing a mask inside the White House and not social distancing. […] The video comes after there was apparently some sort of incident during the interview that caused Trump to end it early. “60 Minutes” is a left-wing program and Stahl has shown bias against the president in the past. WATCH: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1318644698341408769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1318644698341408769%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3%2Ccontainerclick_1&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftrump-releases-video-of-reporter-who-had-coronavirus-not-wearing-mask-social-distancing-in-white-house When Trump was released from Walter Reed Medical Center after being cleared of COVID-19, he took off his mask when he stood on the White House balcony. Nobody was near him. That’s not good enough for this CNN reporter. From TDW: “Yeah and let us remind viewers now that the president is on steroids and a drug that fewer than 10 people outside of clinical trials have gotten inside the United States to deal with coronavirus,” Collins said. “He had a level of treatment and a level of care that most Americans would not get. That’s understandable, he is the president of the United States, obviously everyone expects that.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/kaitlancollins/status/1313257137599111169?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1313257137599111169%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fcnn-reporter-complains-about-trump-taking-mask-off-trump-campaign-shows-her-taking-her-mask-off-inside-wh The problem here? Well, just watch the clip below… The Trump campaign quickly hit back at Collins, highlighting a video clip from earlier this year where she immediately took her mask off inside the White House press briefing room — an enclosed indoor space where other people were present — after she apparently thought the cameras had been turned off following the end of a…
