Coach Michael Taylor’s Don't Believe The Hype Of The Negative Media: 10 Reasons Why The Future Is Brighter Than You Think manages to address life’s sources of optimism in the fewest number of words. Taylor does not pay lip service. He knows what he is talking about because he has walked numerous turbulent paths before. As the past year has put our resilience to the test, and we continue to hope that this year will be better, it is easy for pessimism to cloud our vision. This book tells you that there are still plenty of good reasons to look forward to, and why choosing to react with optimism at the challenges that life throws at you is to your advantage. As the subtitle suggests, Taylor presents ten reasons that you can examine. They range from your personal development to technology, and how these things can make a positive impact on your life.

Coach Michael Taylor writes with simplicity offering views that are powerfully optimistic. As the mass media feeds us with information that they want us to believe, this book tells you to go the other way and reevaluate matters for yourself. Given that we all have different realities, this self-help book guides you to map your own way and even re-connect with Divine Intelligence. The choice of how to react to challenges is up to you. Taylor is aware that self-help tips are often easier said than done, and he makes it more convenient for you by inviting you to write your own biopic. By thinking of your life as a potential movie, how are you going to plot your own story? Only you can write your own life story, for your goals and purpose are distinct from everyone else. After reading this book, do try to write or at least plot your life story. It is a liberating and enlightening exercise that will pave the way to your healing and a more optimistic view of the future. Don’t Believe the Hype of the Negative Media is a welcome read for anyone feeling downtrodden in these difficult times.
