Are you Comfortable in Prison?

Are you Comfortable in Prison?Wow. I have said it before and I will say it again. If you want to know how to apply all the words of the success gurus just read and apply the things in the greatest salesman in the world. How appropriate for my recent articles. I have been writing about setting goals and this month scroll is talking exactly about goals. The current scroll that I started reading is number VIII- Today I will Multiply my Value a hundredfold.

 

 

Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.

And how will I accomplish this? First I will set goals for the day, the week, the month, the year, and my life. Just as the rain must fall before the wheat will crack its shield and sprout, so must I have objectives before my life will crystallize. In setting my goals I will consider my best performance of the past and multiply it a hundredfold.- Og Mandino

Many people let their life just beat them down. Maybe we can look at setting goals from a different perspective. Many people just settle into mediocrity because their subconscious mind is directing them away from the pain of previous attempts and failures. They then use their conscious mind to rationalize why they end up in their own prison. There are no excuses for most of the people that live in the United Sates. Our government and lifestyle, as crazy as it is still allows one of the most important God given abilities which is- free will.

The problem is that we chose to trap ourselves in our minds. So what do we do? We need to escape as if we were escaping from prison. I have never been in prison but I would gather that if it was easy to escape that more people would do it. So it is not an easy endeavor. It requires planing, timing, and guts. It requires a total desire to escape the conditions that are oppressing you. I mean you have 24-7 prison guards monitoring every movement your conscious mind does.

Without desire you will never have the guts to escape. Unfortunately some people are more than comfortable in jail, some actually commit crimes so that they can have a warm place to stay and 3 square meals. So if your life is to much for you to take you have likely incarcerated yourself so that you can at least get three square meals and a roof over your heard. You might have meet some people just like this, and no matter what you say to these people they just will not come out until they believe that they can. Life is entirely to short to spent it in a prison of my own doing. A prison of my misconceptions, fears, and shortcomings.

What were you doing 5 years ago? Is it the same thing that you are doing today? Will it be the same thing that you will be doing 5 years from now? Are you happy doing it? Do you know that would be 10 years of your life (Possibly 10% of your life)? Can you do what you do and still enjoy life to the fullest?

In order to escape prison you should be dreaming of what is on the outside. What is out there? What can you accomplish if you get out? What will you do when you get out that you can not do now? What adventures can you accomplish that you can’t while in jail? Wow! I am taking this metaphor to it’s breaking point.

Today I would like for you to dream again. To dream about what is possible and forget what impossible means. I would like you to write all the things that you have wanted to do in your life. A bucket list perhaps. Have you ever heard of the story of Houdini’s failed escape?

As usually told, the story goes that Houdini, while visiting England, would regularly escape from jails as a publicity stunt. He toured many major towns and cities, and managed to escape from the town or city jail in every case. There was one exception: a police jail cell in Preston, Lancashire. Houdini tried and failed to escape. Why did he fail? Because the cell had never actually been locked in the first place! Hence he was trying to ‘unlock’ a lock which wasn’t locked!”

Although most likely not true it is a cute story to represent what most of us do on a daily basis. We lock ourselves in our preconceived ideas about the outside world and never let ourselves out. Get out!!

Turning the Impending Economic Collapse to your Advantage.

Turning the Impending Economic Collapse to your Advantage.I have been writing to you about goals the last couple of days, and if you have been following my articles the first category is your financial, business goals. I have been planing my goals for years and I have reached many of them. But over the last few years it has been more difficult to reach my goals especially as it pertains to my traditional business. Let me explain;

Most likely like you, I am a pretty optimistic person ( and if you haven’t check my article from august 31st on How to be Happy in 10 min Without Using Drugs) I believe that everyone should have a good outlook on life. It is better for your health and wealth. My relationship with YHWH also means a lot to me and I study scripture on a regular basis. With this attitude and belief system I have been looking at the fact that I have been working more and making less. I have come to the realization that the financial game is changing and in fact not only is the game changing but we are changing the board that the games is being played on.

I hope that when you review your goals that you realize as I have that you don’t have as much time to get your act together as you think you do. That if you have been procrastinating over the last few years on making any kind of wealth you better plan on doing it in the next 5 years. If you have made some wealth I believe that you should consider what you are doing with it. I always believe that there will be opportunities in the market to make money, but I have also opened my eyes to one of the greatest opportunities in history.

I have spoken to people about this before and the reaction that I get is that of hopelessness and defeat. I understand the reaction sometimes it feels to me like I am in the Titanic full of arrogant politicians that think they know what is best for the ship (economy) driving straight for a iceberg taking us all with them. All this I feel is happening in slow motion next to people that have a feeling we are headed for danger but are choosing to think that the Titanic is unsinkable and that there is enough life rafts if an emergency does come. It has been hard for me to look at it differently but I like you need to just do it. So I have chosen to scope out my life raft and to tell others that they need to do the same. Maybe I will even leave the ship early.

 

So when I did my goals five years ago I was still projecting my retirement 15 years into the future. I am not one of these people that hates my job. I enjoy my practice and want to help people even after I ‘retire’ but chiropractic is not one of those things that is considered a necessity. I did not really see the impending doom coming in the future. I was planning for the future looking at the past 50 years instead of realizing that the game is changing. Now I have noticed, and come to realize that we don’t have that much time to plan. We don’t have as much time as we think we do. Things are looking grim, and the planing and preparation needs to be different than it was. Instead of planning for retirement and being debt free in ten years we should be planning to endure some tough times, and be in a position to take advantage of some major economic changes. My point is this- continue to plan your goals every day over the next 5 days but keep in mind that the game that we have been playing is not the same that we will be playing 5 years from now. The board will change soon. The faster you can make money and change into something of value the better you will be poised for the future. I have already talked to you about why I believe the Elevation Group is so important so check that out on the article or just click on my affiliate link and get a free webinar.  I feel I should just mention it again Mike Dillard has done a great job in providing  valuable lessons on how to be prepared and benefit from the impending economic collapse. When planing your financial goals I am not a financial adviser, but I will tell you that as I redo my goals for this coming quarter I will be doing them with a different perspective. By you planing for the worst, you might be able to live your best.

So let me give you some ideas on what I am thinking about-

Financial, business-

What asset should you be accumulating? What can you do to accumulate that as quickly as possible? Will your plan be good for whether the economy collapses or not? What preparations do you have to make in order to benefit in the economic collapse?

 

I can’t control the people in power in our country but I can sure try to prepare for the impending crash. If you have any other questions that are helpful please feel free to comment…
