WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO DURING A RECESSION ?
Where does the money go during a recession ? The easy and nasty response is .. to the rich. Does giving that answer make you feel good ? Aahhh .. my friend … you just tripped yourself up pretty bad … you just declassified yourself out of this august body of people who have it all … me thinks it sounds a bit like jealousy … just blame your plain old bad luck … your inability to be aligned to powerful good of the self … forgot how to be a cheshire cat … its the only animal that licks the cream … all else are but motley fools .. have you read shakespeare’s diatribe against one. Oh they are talented .. nothing is more common than any number of unsuccessful people with loads of talent. And yes many are geniuses too … but of what use is unrewarded genius. Educated ? the world is full of educated derelicts … dying with their songs still on their lips .. unheard and unsung heroes. They accept the fall when life is tough. But is that how life is meant to be lived?
Life did beat me too .. even when I linked to spirituality and to God … and been promised a miracle of my sales in the millions … for MasterMind is God’s gift to the americans to pull themselves out of the recession. Yet it was no cakewalk for me … even when I cried copious tears 5 years ago and asked God … why is there a downturn in the economy ? I want to help ? I now wonder why I did that ? Guess at that time I did not link it to my wealth … it was a pure desire to help and randomly thought. But it soon developed into a dream of epic proportions !
On the one hand .. I saw myself getting bigger and better at my capacity to inspire .. myself first and through it countless others thirsting for that drop of water .. just that one drop that can quench the most rabid thirst. I can’t even begin to explain and share the thoughts that held me in their thrall for all of that time .. that I did not notice the time fly .. until I felt the dust begin to settle for my life … things happening in synchronocity of thought which incidentally did not happen overnight .. but through a trial and error .. me putting every thing I read or saw to its test .. to make it work for me … me greedy for all kinds of experiences .. any amount of wealth my mind can conjure up. Why would you or anybody ever classify me as greedy (I say this for some did) … its not as if I asked them to do a pidly share of the amount of work I did … working into the night. I never asked anyone to share my page except the one on healing … which i felt deserved to be spread .. for life and death are 2 sides of coin and suffering is not something I ever advocate. I am of strict demeanour to truths of perfection of the human body as a gift of the creator. Never to be doubted but loved for its gifts to you.
…. and had I given in .. I too would be one of the above. So what is the only thing that gives … a beating .. a good and thorough beating. Beat cream … to get at its riches .. the butter. So what is a beating. A never say die philosophy … press on … agitate minds .. wake them up … for goodness of mind must succeed …. and it will solve all problems of the human race.
I called time a liar and persisted … for persistence and determination alone would work as omnipotent when giving up on a dream after 5 years of working on it can never be an option. Its like swallowing bile but trudging on nevertheless .. and you soon begin to see yourself in a different light. The 2 clear choices before me were … carry on to win or be forever beaten. See a lesson there for you too. In this we are all the same. So let me sit you down and tell you a powerful story.
IF YOU’VE EVER STUDIED ECONOMICS OR PAST EVENTS … YOU KNOW THAT THERE IS A LOT OF MONEY IN THE WORLD …. AND IT JUST DOESN’T DISAPPEAR DURING A RECESSION OR A DEPRESSION.
IT HAS TO BE SOMEWHERE … IT HAS CHANGED HANDS … OR MOVED ON. THE TRICK, THEREFORE .. IS TO FIND OUT JUST WHERE ITS FLOWING AND TO POSITION YOURSELF IN FRONT OF IT. NOW DON’T THINK OF COMPLICATING YOUR LIFE BY COMING UP WITH FANCY IDEAS THAT MAY TAKE A LONG TIME TO SHOW UP AS PROFIT. FOCUS ON ESSENTIALS … FOOD, CLOTHING (AMERICA WAS ONCE FAMOUS FOR THEIR CLOTHES … BUILT SOLID TO LAST AND LAST .. AN AMAZING QUALITY THAT DID NOT SHOW SIGNS OF ANY WEAR AND TEAR .. I SAY THIS FROM MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OF HAVING BEEN LUCKY TO HAVE DRESSED MY KIDS IN BRANDS LIKE OSH KOSH BEGOSH ETC ETC) STUFF THAT SELLS DAILY AND MUST SELL DAILY. YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEAN.
IF THERE IS ONE THING HISTORY HAS PROVEN OVER AND OVER AGAIN IS THAT THERE IS MORE OPPORTUNITY WHEN THINGS ARE UNCERTAIN RATHER THAN ‘NORMAL’. NORMAL IS AN EASY AND STAID LIFE … AND UNCERTAINTY CREATES A FULL THROTTLE APPROACH WITH ALL SENSES THROWN IN FOR ADDED MEASURE.
THIS IS WHY THERE WILL ALWAYS BE PEOPLE WHO WILL ACTUALLY COME OUT AHEAD AS A RESULT OF ECONOMIC DOWNTURNS !!!! AND ITS NO BIG SECRET .. FOR THIS IS CERTAINLY NOT THE FIRST OR PROBABLY THE LAST … FOR WHEN AN OVERHAULING IS REQUIRED .. A TECTONIC SHIFT IN THINKING .. REARRANGES AND RE ORDERS THINGS IN THE WORLD. SO ITS NEVER A QUESTION OF IF .. JUST WHEN … THINGS WILL BOUNCE BACK. AND THIS VARIES FROM INDIVIDUAL TO INDIVIDUAL. SOME END UP AS CRIERS EVEN WHEN LIFE IS GOOD. THE REST DON’T HAVE THAT LUXURY.
MY ONLY LESSON FOR YOU IS TO FOCUS … ON WHERE YOU WILL BE WHEN THE DUST SETTLES .. OR HOW WILL YOU SETTLE THE DUST OR CLEAR THE HAZE IN FRONT OF YOUR METAPHORIC EYES … FOR THAT WILL DETERMINE HOW LIFE WILL TREAT YOU … A HERO … A NERO .. OR A ZERO. LIFE IS TOUGH MAN .. SO STOP BEMOANING YOUR LUCK AND GET CRACKING ON RE-BUILDING YOURSELF FROM OUT OF YOUR ASHES. RISE LIKE A PHOENIX AND LEARN TO FLY AGAIN.
