It’s easy to get caught up in the dominant narrative. It’s front of mind and constantly reinforced through media and news. It’s often driven by the fears and concerns of the majority of people. As balanced as we like to think the dominant narrative is, it’s biased to perspectives the most people care about. News needs to sell after all.
Behind the scenes though, are people working tirelessly to improve the situation, alleviate the fears and plot a path through uncertainty. This is great news, but unfortunately only becomes newsworthy once it comes full circle. The tireless work remains in the background until final good outcomes are achieved.
These good outcomes take long hours of sweat and dedication.
Let’s remember this as we worry about the future and get consumed by negativity.
There are silent heroes working to improve the future.
You could be one of them.
