The current COVID situation is a classic example of how people can see things with the glass they are wearing. Either you can see the situation as hopeless or be very well aware, accept and think how to get through this situation. The difference between these attitudes that you “take” during such a situation would determine your future. With a hopeless outlook, you are shutting the doors for your mind to think any thing positive. Its true that with a positive outlook you will not avoid any bad situations. But you will at least be able to think about something positive that you can do during this situation, and that will help you become aware of the new opportunities that were closed until then. And as they say, people can survive without food and water for a few days, without air for a couple of minutes, but cant survive much without hope. So try to be optimistic until it becomes your second nature.
