Anger and Fear

Some respond with anger, some respond with fear; the best respond with calculated optimism.

You shouldn’t be angry, it accomplishes less than reasoned thought. Spend the energy expanding your mind, instead of obscuring useful thoughts with hostility.

Fearing for the future also leads to little progress. Fortune favors the brave, not the cowardly.

Calculated optimism is the view I recommend. It is the realization that life is getting substantially better throughout time, and this trend is likely to continue if we work toward it.

Your mind is your most powerful asset against a harsh reality, so use it wisely.
