Have you ever felt discouraged, disheartened or even depressed by the turmoil and uncertainty that surround you?

When we’re engulfed in circumstances that feel beyond our control, finding the strength and courage to keep going isn’t always easy. Understandably, we can feel helpless and alone.

That’s why when this question came in from a reader in Iraq, it broke my heart wide open.

Her letter was a powerful reminder that no matter who we are or where we come from, the vast majority of humans want the same things: to be safe and connected with those we love, to contribute and grow through meaningful work, and to live in peace.

If you’ve ever struggled to find strength and meaning in a highly uncertain world, today’s episode can help.

You’ll learn two simple and highly effective tools to use whenever you feel discouraged and maybe even wonder… “What’s the point anyway? All of this is futile. How can I possibly keep going when everything could be taken away?!?”

You’ll also learn about the philosophy that Mother Teresa found so inspiring that she put it up on the wall of her children’s home in Calcutta.

It speaks to the strength and purpose we can find as we face the reality of impermanence, and the power that comes from being willing to share our gifts no matter what.
