Living in today’s corporate and personal worlds is very challenging. Negativity is on the rise, and as discussed earlier, so is depression. Gone are ethics and loyalty – 2 words that went together like peanut butter and jelly, and now are as opposite as night and day. The world is all about doing what it takes to get to the top. Watch the news coverage, they focus more on those that have done bad, than those who are good, the heroes of this world. Gone are the days of hard work, trust, dedication, commitment, and loyalty actions that are associated with the good in a person. It’s not all about the facts its all about perception of what the facts are. More and more it appears one has to be bad in this world in order to achieve the accolades and rise to the top.
As a christian, and lord knows my faith is weak, I try to wrap my arms around why do bad things happen to good people? I am told over and over again bad doesn’t discriminate, but it is abundantly clear it does. It’s hard to stay motivated in this world if the trust is ripped out from underneath without an explanation. . It’s hard to stay motivated when the wind that sails the ships no longer blows. Finally its even harder to stay motivated that when all the blood,sweat and tears go unappreciated or noticed.
What can be done, is trust in the Lord and believe that he sees the good in our hearts and souls. Continue to pray that he shows the way and has our backs.
Peace be the journey
