Get On the Prosperity Train or Sink on the Debt Boat!
We are living in interesting times. Globally, things are changing so fast, it can be a challenge for many of us to keep up. This is especially true in terms of economics. The financial picture for most people in America, and the government is not pretty. However, there are specific things we can do to weather the storm and even prosper.
We are facing a critical economic and financial situation in our country today, and unless the majority of us make some serious adjustments to our financial situations, we are going to sink. I am not saying anything that most people don't already know, however, it seems that for many of us, things have to get so bad before we even acknowledge that there is a problem...well, HOUSTON, there is a problem.
I heard that the Chinese have the same word for "Crisis" and "Opportunity." For everything that is going on in the world right now, especially the economic turmoil in America, there are ways to take advantage of the situations. However, most important is taking care of our own situations first. The majority of people in America are drowning in debt, as is our government. A really good way to help this situation is to start a home-based business and start building and structuring longer-term wealth, because if most people continue the paths they are on, surely they will sink.
It comes down to each person really taking a hard and honest look at their situation and making a decision. The reality is that the government is not going to take care of us. Our companies are not going to take care of us, so it is up to us to take care of ourselves. We have all heard the statistics of Social Security and other government programs that are already way-overextended, and there is no way they can sustain the current load for much longer, never mind the fact that Baby Boomers are just going to be cashing in on their benefits in increasing numbers daily.
The bottom line is that if we want to prosper in these turbulent times, we have to become entrepreneurs, if not already, and create our own way. There are endless opportunities out there, most of which are bogus. It takes a discerning eye to spot what is real and what is not, and this is a search that more people would benefit greatly by doing.
We have the power to create our own freedom. The laws of the land are more favorable to home-business owners than to employees in many ways. Given the major economic trends that are occuring, the home-based business industry is only going to get hotter and hotter. Did you know that there will be a projected 80 million people in America alone looking for a business over the next 3-5 years? You could be one of them!
Go out and find yourself a business you can get excited about and ideally one that does something good for our planet. You will truly enjoy your freedom and value you add to society.
Prosper and enjoy!
