You have the right to kill me, but you don't have the right to judge me. That's life. There's nobility in that. There's focus. It's genuine. It's crystal and it's pure and it's available to everybody, so just shut your traps and put down your McDonalds, your vaccines, your Us Weekly, your TMZ and the rest of it.
All of us show bias when it comes to what information we take in. We typically focus on anything that agrees with the outcome we want.
As a freshman in college, I was having a lot of trouble adjusting. I took a meditation class to handle anxiety. It really helped.

Life is full of tough decisions, and nothing makes them easy. But the worst ones are really your personal koans, and tormenting ambivalence is just the sense of satori rising. Try, trust, try, and trust again, and eventually you'll feel your mind change its focus to a new level of understanding.
I meditate and pray before going onstage - it helps me focus.
Inspirational leaders need to have a winning mentality in order to inspire respect. It is hard to trust in the leadership of someone who is half-hearted about their purpose, or only sporadic in focus or enthusiasm.

Sometimes negative news does come out, but it is often exaggerated and manipulated to spread scandal.
