The problem is real: we’re in a global pandemic. There is no denying this reality. Things look dark, and you could be forgiven for feeling anxious, frightened, or even defeated. But please don’t allow yourself to stay there. We need you right now. And there is cause for optimism, harmony, and hope...
Because there is something else that cannot be denied – and that is the awesome power of the human spirit.
The challenges we are facing right now will come to an end at some point. And we will prevail. Let me share a belief I hold with every fiber of my being: When a battle arises between any force acting against the human race, bet on the human spirit. The human spirit is mightier than pestilence, famine, pandemics, and war. Because there are Superheroes among us.
Of course, we’re thinking first about all the health care workers, first responders, and all the families who support them. And we’re also talking about the warehouse workers still shipping out essential supplies, all of those people at the supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, farms, and all the delivery drivers. Also, the civil servants who are running the emergency response, and the private section that is responding with desperately needed innovations in testing, treatments and cures. (And certainly many others. Feel free to add any I’ve missed in the comments.) Please show all these Superheroes extra gratitude, courtesy, and love.
Here is the most important part of all this. While we do have all these Superheroes, they can’t save us by themselves. In this crisis, we need everyone to pitch in.
And that starts with zealously practicing social distancing. Please understand something: our biggest danger right now is not the people sick with COVID-19. We know who those people are. Even if you’re not infected with COVID, if you’re showing symptoms like a cough, people will avoid you like you’re Freddy Krueger.
The biggest danger to the world right now is people who are infected, don’t know it, and are still pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic.
That’s where the vast majority of infections occur. So take the social distancing and hygiene procedures seriously, no matter how young you are, or how healthy you feel. The easiest way for you to be a hero right now is to stay home.
But we don’t just need you in the easiest way. You, me, and everyone else has to step up to the degrees we are capable of. Here are a few ways you can be a prosperity warrior right now. Please add any more you think of in the comments.
For a lot of the world, the most difficult times are still ahead. But we will get through this together. Please share this message of hope in your social media feeds.
The world is in desperate need of prosperity warriors right now. Prosperity warriors like you.
