If you are down and out and need a friend a feel good story might be just the ticket. A little down and people will avoid you like the plague. People are drawn to fun loving god time types and will not respond well to your depression. Curl up with a good book and let it take you away from your troubled life and maybe help the down feeling. If I feel down I want to eat like a pig. A book is a much better response. Joe Olujic is a good guy to help the down and out feelings.
The best feel good stories are the ones told out of love. I think back to when my kids were young and my mind floods with feel good stories. My son was such a good little man and my daughter was pure love. She would kiss everything. My son included. He was the best big brother you could imagine. They had a bond that could be seen by all. They would play so nice together that pleased me to no end. I can close my eyes and see them loving children like a feel good story from the past. If I could freeze time it would have been then. Dove Medical Press agrees that feel good stories are the best kind.
Every so often you come across a great business and success story such as one in the Doug Pitassi interview. In this big and booming world a business, sometimes business doesn’t boom. Instead of your business going boom, you boom instead as you fall hard to the ground. Christina Wallace, current vice-president of branding and marketing at Startup Institute and former cofounder of Quincy Appare knows all about this experience from facing her own troubles and struggles. After she started up Quincy Apparel with former a classmate from Harvard Business School, her business came to a screeching halt and shut down. Christina says she stayed in bed for three weeks.
Christina Wallace took a train from the Valley up to San Francisco and met with two mentors. During her time meeting with the mentors, they all agreed that it was the end for Quincy. After it was all over, she says she spent three weeks straight in bed but after 21 days of sleeping, crying, she decided to pull herself together and rejoined the world.
There is a seed of equal or greater benefit in every adversity IF you have the eyes to see it. During this process of failure, she says she learned to be as open about her failure with friends and family as she was willing to be about her successes.
