You've probably heard about the two self-help gurus who suffocated themselves. Their specialty was positive thinking.

The irony makes for great headlines. The reality is a very sad story that ends in the worst possible way. You know progress requires effort. Ups require downs. Gain requires pain. Life is like a duracell. Without both positive and negative sides you simply cease functioning.

If this story makes you sad, that's good. It means you’ve got what it takes to be complete and whole and human.
