Optimism seems to allude many of us these days.

Author, filmmaker, futurist and public speaker Maxim Jago has a refreshing outlook on life and, through his global adventures and acquaintances, has captured the essence of contentment by being present and grateful.  Maxim gives us a preview of his book, "How to Be", due out in 2022 as well as a multitude of other fascinating ventures and life experiences -- including directing a horror feature called THE HAUNTED and witnessing his own birth, later confirmed by his mother.

Shake off the yoke of discontent and learn to appreciate the things you have in life ... and visualize what can be.  The only thing that's stopping you is your mind.
