Chris Gardener, you might remember him from the feature film “ The pursuit of happyness”, well he had a very tragic and challenging life, he got into this business of one scanners, and lost all his money, eventually he is forced to take an unpaid internship at a stock broking firm, because of which today he is a multi millionaire businessman. Even though his failed business seemed like a great debacle at that point in his life, on hindsight it was the reason of his success, had he not been in that condition he might have never reached the dizzying heights he has.
The world is going through a recession today, needless to say that it is a challenging phase for people, but then if you see it from a different perspective, off late with economic boom he world had become too materialistic, people began pursuing a lonely and individual life. Now with recession as all of us face this tough phase together, lend a helping hand to each other, and this has in a way brought us all much closer emotionally. People are hooked off the materialistic phase, which might lead to them appreciating the other things life has to offer. Governments can pay attention to human development rather than economic growth. It’s quite obvious that even though recession is a bad thing, it has a silver lining.
Most good and bad thing have a upside or downside, there are no absolutes, so we must not worry ourselves too much with what going on in our lives, rather we must be up to the challenge every day, and be prepared to see that silver lining in every dark cloud.
