Daily, I consume a large dose of alternative news sources on Steemit. I appreciate the information I get from these online journalists. As I think it is important to understand the forces that are trying to shape our reality.
They paint a very negative picture of a world largely dominated by government and corporate elites pursuing power, profit and geopolitical dominance. This can lead you to a negative and depressing outlook in your life, given the awareness you have of how our noble leaders behave. Obviously, this is not a good mental framework from which to embrace and prosper in your life.

By embracing life you are more likely to be a success and thereby not a burden on people but will actually be in a position to help others when help is required.
