The video below affirms my choice to be a positivity strategist!
I encourage you to invest 1.32 minutes to watch this video put out by Google, entitled “Year in Search 2014” focusing on the most searched for terms for 2014.
Hold your judgement :-)
Pictures speak a thousand words
The medium is the message. Pictures speak a thousand words. Pick your favorite idiom or quote. For me it's “words create worlds” and “what you focus on grows.” What we search for, we will find. Where we put our attention, our energy follows. These searched for words in this video shine the light on the best of our human story: Hope, Science, Love, Greatness, Sense-making, Remembrance, Inspiration, Discovery, Imagination.
If you scroll through some of the comments under this video, you'll see also another side of the human condition: the cynicism. Many are saying this message of hope is hokey-pokey. These comments reveal a different reality when they claim that the most searched for words are search for “porn”, “sex” etc. No doubt, that's real, too.
Search for the best
There are multiple realities. There's the good and the bad and everything in between.
I value the wholeness of the entire human experience. This video demonstrates to me that hope, and love, and inspiration, discovery and imagination are what get me out of bed everyday. Searching for the best in humanity. Couldn't live without it.
