In tough times, we tend to feel uninspired and unmotivated; our desire to achieve goes down.  Today in Namibia, many people aren’t inspired – things are just too difficult. Hearing a budget speech that basically says things are not going to get better any time soon; being unable to find a job or pay university fees drains away positive feelings.  As things get worse, people feel darker about life’s potential.
