Please comment on my episodes, I would like to hear how I can improve them

On June 18, 2013, My Positive Perspective founder Jason Deierlein was interviewed by Glenn Cohen for an episode. During the episode, Cohen mentioned Deierlein and his involvement with the program Communities in Schools. Cohen asked, “What is the main message you want the students to identify with from your speech?” In answering this question, Deierlein replied, “I want students to realize that anything can be accomplished with hard work. I use my own life as an example; hard work was needed throughout my swimming career in order for me to win state championships. Hard work was certainly necessary for me to recover from my car accident. I am hoping the hard work I am putting in by creating My Positive Perspective will end up leading to success there as well.”

The interview changed subjects a little when the fact that most of these students were facing similar challenges because of similar adverse circumstances. When Cohen asked Deierlein, “What should be done about this?” Deierlein replied, "The students need to be friends with each other and realize that there is lots they can do for each other such as sharing advice and ways to succeed despite their troubled lives.”

The episode was concluded when Deierlein was asked, “How can people get involved in what you are doing?” Deierlein replied, “Please comment on my episodes, I want to improve them, but rarely hear back from people on how I can improve. People can always go to and follow prompts.”

My Positive Perspective is a media outlet believing that improvement in our community will be best achieved by focusing on the good things happening in our world today. Having survived a near fatal car accident as a youth, a shift of perception forced one to have a mentality of always concentrating on the brighter sides of things. This was true, and in my book, Return From a Comatose Mind, this belief was put to the test. Appreciation for life was the biggest thing one took away from my brush with death, and it is because of that gives me such a huge desire to be helpful to many. My Positive Perspective is a way of overcoming challenges.
