Fifteen years ago on Labor Day weekend I clicked the button for the first time that uploaded the Good News Network website, allowing anyone in the world to see it on the internet. I’ll never forget the thrill I felt as a simple click opened my voice to the world.
At that time, Google had not been invented. There was no YouTube, no social media networks. There was not a single blog.
“Good News” soon came to mean much more to me than aggregating stories from around the world, or publishing my own metaphysical essays, like “The Mist on the Lake is Like our own Consciousness.”
Focusing on good news became a philosophy for my life, a way to ‘temper’ my temperament. I came to realize how important it was to focus on the good in my children, rather than pointing out their mistakes.
To mark the website’s 15th anniversary, I am launching a contest called, “What ‘Good News’ Means to Me”.
I’ve got some SUPER life-enhancing prizes to award for my favorite entries. Two of the celebrities donating items (Carol and Francis) are professionals I have worked with who initiated wonderful breakthroughs during their personal sessions with me. Their talents, as well as Darin’s coaching, could help anyone to find their purpose in life, or find clarity and meaning in the more troubled areas of their lives. (Like the mist on the lake finds sunlight.)
To win, just write a few paragraphs or a short story about how the Good News Network contributes to your own philosophy of life or, more generally, what “good news” means to you. It ends SOON — on Friday, September 7 at midnight — so get your entries in right away!
