Adversity. A fancy word for “tough times.” While it’s true that we all face challenges and hardships during our lives, it seems that more and more of us are faced with them right now. And, we all know that we’re most likely to feel what others around us are feeling. If those around us are feeling lost, hopeless, and pessimistic about the future, then guess what? We’re going to feel that way too. It’s the “herd mentality” come to haunt us, again.
We don’t like to think of ourselves as members of a herd, but let’s face it; our society can be seen as one. “Herd mentality,” of course, describes how people are influenced by their peers to adopt certain behaviors, follow trends in action or thought.
Currently the trend is toward ‘negative thinking,’ which can be contrasted to the optimistic trend of the 1950 post-war era in America, where prosperity-for-all was thought to be both possible and probable. It was Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher, who coined the phrase.
Dreams, opportunity, success, change, fear, communication, passion and enthusiasm are the words that best summarize the life of Albert Mensah. Born in a mud hut and abject poverty in West Africa, he walked eight miles barefoot twice a day to carry firewood and water to help his family survive. Albert’s powerful message of hope and inspiration is based on his own life experiences. He believes people can become more successful if they can conceive a dream that touches the heart of their existence.
