It was sooooo simple. In fact, it was so simple that it was almost incomprehensible. Almost invisible. It was so simple, that almost nobody zeroed in on it.
How could everything boil down to just one thing? How could it be? How could one thing be the answer to everything that anyone could ever possibly encounter? Any disaster that might befall you. Any success that may greet you. The loss of a child, lover, wife, leg or arm. The moment when a doctor tells you that your dreadful cancer gives you only one month to live. Or winning $100 million in the lottery.
If I told you that, regardless of everything or anything that you knew, nevertheless, it was true. Everything boils down to just one thing!
HERE IT IS:
"To maintain an incredible sense of hopefulness and confidence about the future. So much so to believe that you can do and try anything and be successful."
PS: How do I know that this is true? Because my 104 year old friend Dora Tuchin told me about "Just one thing!" a very short time before she passed on.
PPS: I will work for the rest of my life to be as hopeful and confident about tomorrow as my friend Dora.
