Tip#223: Embrace An Optimistic Future - 2012

Predictions of the future can sometimes appear dark and frightening. So it's up to you on how you CHOOSE to see your future.

In 2 days of this writing Barack Obama will be sworn in as the first black president of the United States. Watching the news I can see there is an overflowing sense of optimism and excitement in the air. I've never seen such enthusiasm before from people around the world. Obama truly represents a hopeful and positive future.

That's how I feel about the predictions for the year 2012. I'm CHOOSING to see it as positive. A number of ancient prophecies, including the Mayan calendar, predicted this date as the end of the world as we knew it. And since discovering these prophecies back in 1994 the year 2012 has entered pop culture:

• X-Files series finale: 2012 is the truth Fox Mulder had been searching for throughout the series
• I Am Legend movie: 2012 is the date of this apocalyptic story
• 2012: The War for Souls novel by Whitley Strieber: Read more
• 2012 is new movie to be released July 10, 2009 by director Roland Emmerich (The Day After Tomorrow) See trailer

Despite all the dire representations of the year 2012 I've always chosen to be optimistic about the future. I was even compelled to write and record a song that expressed my positive attitude.

The "2012 Song" appeared on my 1999 debut music CD called Rain of Angels and was always meant to be an uplifting ballad for the citizens of planet earth. And this being the 10 year anniversary of the album's release I've created a music video for my "2012 Song".

The video is filled with artwork I had created during my depression in 2000. The rich colours and textures helped fill me with optimism despite the pain I was feeling. I always knew this artwork could help others feel positive too.

Choose A Positive Attitude

So if the future is worrying you, if economic predictions are stressing you out, if life ahead appears to be frightening then look at your 2 choices. You can choose a path with a negative attitude OR a path that is filled with optimism.

Join in the excitement of Obama's positive energy. Feel the uplifting messages of my "2012 Song". Let your positive emotional energy flow and energize your spirit. Remember that every cloud has a silver lining and that optimistic thought will lead you down the path you desire.

Hi Emmanuel

I LOVED your video; it gave me goosebumps! I was mesmerized by the words and rainbow of colours! My positive state of mind was increased at least tenfold as I was watching it. I like the fact that you showed the lyrics so that I could let them sink into my mind, body and soul!

I walked away from it feeling more positive and energetic than before and excited about THE FUTURE!! Congrats on your latest excellent work! I am sure many others will like it, too!
