In this video, Mr. Riggs opens by saying, “I am convinced that most of life’s problems can be traced back to one or more of a handful of grand illusions that we all carry with us in our heads.” He goes on to explain that these illusions include “beliefs, assumptions, biases, defense mechanisms,” but mostly attitudes.

Mr. Riggs goes on to explain that these illusions can only be shattered through a positive attitude. “You and I hold right now in the palm of our hands in equal measure the single greatest purely human power in this universe, and that is the power to face any circumstance with a fabulous attitude,” he says.
