An important Message form Sam Sadat
As the US and global economy further deteriorate, it's clear we have a long way to go before things assume a semblance of normality. The latest LA Times poll shows that 50% of Americans are struggling which I guess it means the other 50% are thriving. The reason for this is that in life things never stay the same. So, if it's not getting better then it's getting worse. Along the same line, I had a call from one of my friends who frantically referred to an unemployment rate of 7.5% as being the cause for all our woes. My immediate response to him was that this stat only means that we have a 92.5% employment rate. Following the same logic, there is always the other side of the coin which indicates an empowering attitude instead of a victim mentality.
Here is the scoop from my perspective. 1. There's no longer a need to point fingers at who's the cause of all this mess. 2. The fact is that we are in a big mess and there's no turning back. In fact, it's the worst mess since the Great Depression. 3. We the people who this government is supposed to serve are essentially powerless when it comes to what it decides to do with our money. 4. The government will not do anything for you, so don't expect a handout or anything remotely designed to help the people of this great nation. 5. We must take charge of our own lives if we are to survive this calamity. 6. The first step is recognizing that we have the power to change our destiny. 7. We need to change our thoughts from struggling into striving. 8. We need to eliminate fear thoughts from our mind. 9. Acknowledge that you can make a difference in your own life by taking action. 10. Know in your heart that whatever the outcome, you'll be fine as long as you don't lose your health in the process. 11. Remember the 3 pillars of a successful life: Freedom, Joy and Love.
