Awakening The 99 Percent, The Sleeping Giant pt. III

According to a July 2012 estimate there are 313,847,465  people living in the US. Approximately 78 million are children with 40 million individuals over the age of 65.  Let’s say that 118 million people  really don’t care about the war on the middle and lower class or don’t have the will to do anything about it. That leaves us with approximately 195,847,465 who do care, less the roughly 1.9 million 1%ers.  That leaves us with about 193,050,000 who are being attacked and left holding the bag.  I’m not saying all millionaires and billionaires are waging war on the middle class and the poor; or that everybody in the middle class cares about the fight. Even I believe they should care.   Some think they have it made and are content with their lives.  But if they are content and claim to be Christians while their brothers and sisters struggle they are deceived.  I know some of the poor, lower- middle class and Elites act like everything should be handed to them and  that isn’t right either.   But there is still a war on the middle class and the Elites continue to bring the fight to the middle class whether you believe it or not.

Bankers and CEO’s of big corporation are bribing politicians through lobbyists.  Some elitist politicians are passing laws to help their billionaires and multi-millionaire friends wage war against the middle and lower class.  The main stream media moguls also participate in the greatest scam that has ever been forced upon a nation of people since the great depression.  All of the these forces have come together by commission or omission, to wage war against the lower and middle class citizens of America. 

Since the lower/middle class citizens make up 193 million individuals in America, just by sheer numbers they should have control over their own life.  They should have the power to govern their way of life,  as the Constitution states “by the people and for the people.”  It is said that the pen is mightier than the sword. If that’s true, the middle class should be very concerned about their politicians, bankers, Wall Street Hedge Fund Managers and CEOs conspiring to put a stranglehold on their entire life.  This is a group of treasonous traitors, or better yet,  domestic enemies of this great country of ours..

Middle class interests are being propagandized and manipulated by Hollywood, politicians and talking heads. The daily buzz focuses on what a movie star is wearing, what team a sports player is being drafted on or the latest reality TV show.  These same conspirators aren’t talking about the war being waged by politicians and big corporations against the middle class.   Ask yourself why don’t they care?  Obviously many Hollywood stars and professional sports players don’t care about the life of lower and middle class people. If they did they would be side by side locking arms and standing with the poor and the middle class and speaking about issues that concern them.  Instead they are stuck in their own egotistical mind set bubble that doesn’t allow them to think or care about the abuse that is being produced and forced down the throat of the less fortunate citizens of the United States.  

Imagine if there was a system that could alleviate all the pressures of Slave Wage, Corporation entitlements, and bribery of politicians.  What if there was a system that could stimulate the masses to stop depending on Government subsidies, bring power back to the masses and take power from the few and give it back to the many?  Imagine a system that leveled the playing field and replaced the job mentality mindset with a creative mindset.   A system that allows wives and husbands to be at home with their children where they could mend strained relationships that the Slave Wage  job created.  A system to replace the one that destroyed entire communities and left many cities desolate with latch-key kids destroying their own neighborhoods. 

Imagine a system that creates work for individuals who are called the dregs of society who have been  railroaded into the prison system, left with a federal charges for the rest of their life and who can’t find a job once they are released.   Left with no hope, these people believe they have no option but to return to jail, because they know they can’t survive in a rigged system that favors the rich.

Just maybe college students who continue to acquire debts in a rigged system can learn from those who have figured out the system they are living in, is rigged to keep them in debt and keep money padding the pockets of the rich.

Imagine a system that closes down expensive day care centers, that parents can’t afford and brings babies back into the loving arms of a caring parent.  A system that takes thousands of automobiles off the highway  commute lanes and back into garages. Imagine a system that creates self-esteem, brings worlds together, makes new friends, and changes the lives of everyday people.   Imagine a system that can teach and train individuals how to coach and mentor and listen effectively instead of talking.  A system that is a relationship building industry and that takes a poor person of our society and makes him a rich man if he/she has the desire.   A system that takes down trodden people and infuses them with confidence and hope.

Think about a system modeled after the way Jesus picked his disciples and the way they built the church instead of the system we are living in, that is modeled after a system inspired by Satan.   Satan tempted Jesus in the book of Matthew 4:1-11 through the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life.  In the same way our system tempts people to get in debts by the use of  tantalizing messages through commercials on television and screen.  The system we live in tempts  and enslave men to one another.

Their is another system that would put to shame the system we are experiencing. A system that would cause those who are illegally benefiting from it, to be confounded. A system that would destroy the war against the middle class.

The book of 1 Corinthians 1:27-29 states, “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world (people helping people and individual bring their money and voices together) to put to shame the wise (Job mentality people, Congressman, Senators, and lobbyist) and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty (big corporations, politicians, supreme court justices, elites billionaires(28) and the base things of the world (network marketers/direct salesmen, people of color) and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing (Wage mentality people, out-sourced jobs, corportise, plutocracy, elitists) the things that are (29) that no flesh should glory in His presence.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Right now we live in a system that so called wise men/self proclaimed experts have built and designed.  The system allows certain elite men to manipulate and control others for the sake of money which is then used for lobbying/bribery.  This same system cause profits to be the number one entity to take the place over human kindness.  This Babylonian system causes men to forsake the needs of their fellow beings… and allows profits to come before the welfare of children, the sick and dying and to come before doing what is right. There is no such thing as HONOR among HYPOCRITES.  

This so called wise men’s  system causes pastors to neglect their congregation and to fear what would happen if they speak up against an unjust and tyrannical society that is being levied against their own followers. This tyrannical society causes pastors to become hirelings instead of shepherds as they made preaching of the Gospels a career choice instead of a holy calling.  As a result, for some the curse of Ezekiel 34:1-9 has  fallen upon them. A double WOE.

 Also this system causes good and bad politician to take bribes and call it lobbying.  Men become callous and over look what their good books says about bribery     Proverbs 29:4 The king establishes the land by justice, But he who receives bribes overthrows it.(Koch Brother starting a non-profit call ALEC, that gives money to Politicians and also write laws for our Politicians to levy against the people)    Ecclesiastes 7:7 Surely oppression destroys a wise man’s reason, And a bribe debases the heart.(Unreasonable Politician passing law that make no sense.)     Proverbs 17:23 A wicked man accepts a bribe behind the back To pervert the ways of justice.(SUPREME COURT JUSTICES :saying corporations are people and money is speech)                                                                                                                                                                               

Isaiah 1:23 Your Princes/Congressmen/Senators are Rebellious, And Companions of Thieves; Everyone Loves Bribes, And Follows After Rewards. THEY DO NOT NOT DEFEND THE FATHERLESS, NOR DOES THE CAUSE OF THE WIDOW COME BEFORE THEM.”                                                                                                                

Let me repeat the verse at the top Proverbs 29:4 in a different translation.   (NIV)  Proverbs 29:4 By justice a king gives a country stability, BUT THOSE WHO ARE GREEDY FOR BRIBES/LOBBYING TEAR IT DOWN.    Our politicians are tearing this country into pieces, no matter what they call a bribe/lobbying, it is still a BRIBE…..

There is a system that will destroy the existing system that makes men work for 40 years, 40 hours a week, to retire on a pension that is 40% of the salary they couldn’t live on.  This system is called DIRECT/MULTI-LEVEL MARKETING.  Don’t believe me, look around at the system we are living in and compare. The system we are living in, causes college students to be indebted before they graduate, lays off thousands for the sake of the corporate bottom line and allows Billionaire Bankers to steal from the the middle class and force them out of their homes while they take corporate welfare.   What about this system that is waging war against the middle and lower class people of our society……(The wealth of the wicked will be transfer unto the righteous)

The Direct/Multi-level marketing system allows people to help other people get ahead, creates spillover, and makes some of the best, high quality products you can find.   A good system under sells and over delivers.. A 3×9 compressed, no holes, one company matrix system….. Its may not be perfect but close to it.

Awakening The 99 Percent, The Sleeping Giant pt. II

     

In the book (The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles) Wattles states, “The working class may become the master class whenever they will begin to do things in a Certain way; the law of wealth is the same for them as it is for all others. This they must learn; and they will remain where they are as long as they continue to do as they do.” 

The middle class and the poor continue to rely on elitist Billionaires and multi-millionaires who have more M O N E Y then they can spend in a life time.  The middle class and poor get permission from the elites  to live a fulfilling life.  How?  By going to them wishing and hoping they will get hired for a job controlled by the elites.   The middle class and poor relegate their lives to the rich.  The question we must ask now is, how long should a person allow another individual to run rough shod over their lives?  How long will the middle and lower class allow the elitist billionaires to control and manipulate their existence? When will enough be enough?

I believe there is a war on the middle class and the only people fighting and initiating the war are, billionaires and millionaires by way of politicians.   This group is creating havoc and destruction to the 99%ers way of life.  The shame of it all is that the middle and lower class don’t realize they’re in a war or are too busy with their mundane lives.  As a result, they don’t take notice of the attack being levied against them.   Maybe some of them just don’t care.  As long as people remain in a state of ignorance, they will fall by the way side and end up serving the elites and existing in a world of economic slavery.  When they  awaken they will find themselves in a country of servitude.

When 99%ers wake up and begin to fight back, they need to fight back in the same way they are being attacked.  Take for example if a man finds himself in a gun fight and he brings a knife, he will lose.  He has to at least match tactic with tactic, and force with force to give himself a fighting chance to win the battle…

The reason why elite billionaires are controlling our society is because of the weapon they are using, which is the M O N E Y they have accumulated off the backs of the middle and lower class laborers.  The lower and middle class are spending their hard earned M O N E Y  just to survive in a country that denys them the ability to live a decent and respectable life.  They are in a constant state of struggle.   One day they make money and then turn around and give it back into the billionaires’ pockets to sustain their way of life.  Many, not all billionaires turn around and use the exact same M O N E Y they have acquired from the middle class and the poor and use it against them by lobbying law makers not to pass laws that benefit the poor and middle class.  Billionaires have no desire to support raising the minimum wage, but control the poor and middle class by closing programs like head start programs and much needed nutrition programs.  It seems easier to rail road them into jails and prisons which is another profit center for the ultra rich.

The lust for M O N E Y allows billionaires to disrespect the middle and lower class.  M O N E Y allows bankers to black mail governments and avoid prison after they have stolen from the public.  Behind closed doors  politicians may say huge corporations are “too big to fail”, but what they are really saying is “If you let us fail and send us to jail, we will destroy your economic system and will not invest or lend to the public and cause your systems to collapse…. “

The lust for M O N E Y causes many rich men to have contempt for the poor and the down trodden.  The lust for M O N E Y causes a man’s heart to turn from good to evil, and it’s the love for this material substance that causes men to turn on the wife of their youth, sons to turn against fathers , daughters to turn against mothers, family members to turn against each other and friend to turn against friend. This division causes all common sense to be suspended without cause. It was the lust for M O N E Y, this man made substance, that caused Judas to betray Jesus of Nazareth. It is the love of M O N E Y that causes political commentators like  Rush Limbaugh and his friends to howl from their ivory towers and to spew out hatred towards their fellow human beings. It is the lust for M O N E Y that causes preachers and evangelicals to betray their love for the gospel and the followers filling the pews of many churches.

I believe the lack of M O N E Y  will cause many to fall from grace into the abyss and the destruction of this great economic system. The love for M O N E Y causes pride, but pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall, the black horse will ride. The lust for M O N E Y allows the elite to act with reckless disrespect against the middle and lower class citizens.  It’s the loss of M O N E Y that will get their attention. In the book of Ecclesiastes 10:19 “A feast is made for laughter, and wine makes merry; but M O N E Y answers everything.”  Since M O N E Y is the answer to all things, just maybe if  M O N E Y shifts hands from the rich to the poor, this contempt for the middle and lower class will stop.

No matter how long slaves on a plantation cry out about unfair working conditions to their master, the master continues to make them work in the hot  sun, picking cotton in his fields or doing tedious work cleaning his house or property.   The master still refuses to set them free, because his slaves are worth more to him in captivity, then if he sets them free. So why do we think the elitist billionaires will be or do anything different?  It’s to their advantage to control the masses. The United States is their plantation and the laborers are their wage slaves.

The more they control the masses the more M O N E Y they can make off the backs of the masses. While paying poor and middle class workers minimum wage, corporate owners continue to make 300 to 500 times more than their average worker. The masses are always used to sustain their way of life.   Let’s take a look at the sport of football.  The elites build a football stadium that holds 85,000 fans.  With standing room an 85,000 seat stadium might hold up to 105,000 fans. The 1% wouldn’t and couldn’t fill the stadium if it was left up to them, so they rely on the 99% to fill their stadiums while the owners and the elite have the best seats and the masses get what’s left over. 

The elites decide to build a super box store.   They wouldn’t be in business if it wasn’t for the 99%, because their  elite billionaire friends would never shop at these stores. Take a look at a person who desires to become a movie star, singer, or a sports figure.  In the beginning he or she is struggling to reach their goal, they are in a state of humility.  But as soon as they become famous they treat the masses like they have a plague, and forget that it was the masses who bought their CD’s, went to their concerts, bought over-priced tickets to watch their movies and went to sporting events to see their games. It was the masses who made them rich and famous.  

 If the masses stop spending  M O N E Y,   in one week it would get the attention of the GOP, put pressure on the GDP, cause the FBI, CIA, and every Government agency to stand up and take notice. If the masses stop spending their M O N E Y,  the verse from Ecclesiastes 10:19 would come alive. This is the reason why many big corporations bombard the public with so many commercials.  It is done to seduce and manipulate people to buy their products.  The masses as a whole probably spend more M O N E Y on a daily basis then the 1% spends in a month, although the 99% have much less disposable income.

The 1% doesn’t need to continue to buy stuff everyday to fill their house(s).  The 1% tend to buy quality products that are paid for and not financed creating more debt.  If the 1% spend money on food it’s typically at more expensive restaurants with quality food.  Once the 1% buy things, the quality is so good it takes a life time before the item needs to be replaced.  If it was up to the multi-millionaires and billionaires to sustain this economy, they couldn’t sustain it and we would see a dip in the Gross Domestic Product . They spend most of their M O N E Y in other countries and have off shore accounts.  Patriotism seems to be missing from their vocabulary. The elite billionaires only sell their products to the masses, which are consumable so they must be replaced within two to three years.  Still, the masses continue to buy….. 

We all need each other, but the 1% act like they don’t need the middle and lower class.  They should be cautious about what they wish and hope for…… A day and life without the 99%er’s

Stay tuned for part III

Awakening The 99 Percent, The Sleeping Giant

In the movie Pearl Harbor, Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto is portrayed at the very end of the 1970 film Tora! Tora! Tora!, and in the 2001 film, as saying after his attack on Pearl Harbor, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” The supposed quotation was abbreviated in the film Pearl Harbor (2001), where it merely read, “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant.” There is no printed evidence to prove Yamamoto made this statement or wrote it down.    (Source:  Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

Before Lou Dobbs, begun his career descent on Fox News, he constantly made statements about  “the war on the middle class”.  Rarely do you hear Mr Dobbs speaks about the war on the middle class today.   Maybe because he left CNN in 2009 and joined the sly Fox who doesn’t seem to care about the middle class. Who knows and who really cares?   One thing we do know, is that the 1% seems to be waging war on the middle and lower class people of society.

If you don’t believe it, stop and look at the injustice being poured out on middle and lower class people  by the elite .   Some lower and middle class individuals think and hope America will return to the America they knew  in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s.   I hate to burst their bubbles, but that America is long gone. The so-called American dream is being destroyed by the elite 1%ers as they pour billions of  dollars into elections to persuade politicians to pass laws to suit their needs and not the needs of the people at large.

The elitist Supreme Court calls money  speech and elitist Corporation people,  giving them the right to influence elected officials with huge amounts of money to vote for their self interest.  The elitist Governors are destroying unions.  The minimum wage is not keeping up with inflation.  Payroll taxes are  being levied, pension plans destroyed and jobs outsourced.   At the end of the day, the middle class ends up paying more taxes  while the elite rich and the elite super rich pay 15% or no tax at all. If this is not a war against the middle and lower class people of America, I don’t know what is.

They have convinced the American public to accept the voodoo trickle down economics philosophy, where money never makes  it to the middle class or the poor.   If “trickle down economics” worked, why is  unemployment so high?  Where are the jobs and why haven’t billions of dollars trickled down where it is needed most?  The American public has bought into the austerity scheme, while the elite continue to spend money like it grows on trees.  AUSTERITY is just a code word  for THE WAR ON THE POOR AND MIDDLE CLASS.

New programs and solutions always favor the wealthy, while destroying the poor.  If you think there isn’t a war on American citizens  go ask the elite KOCH Brothers why they are using a non- profit organization called (  ALEC  ) to write laws for elected officials who give new meaning to the term lazy politician.   When  officials  can copy and paste laws and pass bills to benefit the elite multi-billionaire’s and elite multi-millionaire’s agenda…. it’s time for the 99% to wake up.

The elite Koch brothers know the pen is mightier than the sword.   They continue to divide the country  by using (  southern strategy  ) methods and soft coercion to get  State elected officials to pass laws on their behalf.  When elected officials don’t side with them, they pour millions of dollars into a smear  campaign to spread slanderous lies against individuals who don’t do their bidding. This black-mailing  guarantees some politicians remain in office.. The elite 1% of Americans don’t give a damn about the poor or  middle class.  America calls itself a democracy and a God fearing country.   Where is the Democracy? Where is the fear of God and love for the down-trodden?  There is no Democracy in a land that allows elite Billionaires to manipulate Government for the sake of money. 

America’s Good Book says “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other, You cannot serve GOD or  RICHES/MONEY”.   Self righteous elitist capitalists should take that to the bank.  Don’t get me wrong.   I believe in capitalism, but not when it destroys my brothers and sisters.  Loving God allows us to care for our fellow human beings.  Loving money  and lusting after it causes us to destroy our fellow human beings.  The elite Billionaires and Politicians are fooling and lying to Evangelical preachers to get them to believe they are on their side.  They use manipulative words, like the serpent used on Eve in the garden of Eden.  They purposefully  use words to get preachers and religious leaders to choose between the lesser of two evils.  A so called man of  God shouldn’t side with any evil. This same mind set caused individuals to crucify Jesus Christ on the cross… HYPOCRISY…WOE TO YOU HYPOCRITES………….  

If only Evangelicals would stand up and condemn the evil behavior of these elite billionaires who are destroying this country from the inside out (domestic terrorists). When Evangelicals start calling these men evil,  maybe God will give these Evangelical preachers grace/power and wisdom to stand up for the poor.  Maybe then the Gospel will come to life and they can practice what they preach.  Maybe they can expel and expose those rich  elitists masquerading as conservative, do-gooders.  If they just find the courage to speak the truth, just maybe God will take the blind-folds off of their eyes and they will know what their Good Book is saying about the rich man.  Just maybe God will allow them to  assume the role of leadership and lead the poor and middle class to a land filled with milk and honey and give them the ability to stop the destruction of the middle class and the poor…

“My Brother do not show partiality, for if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings in fine apparel,(Koch brother/elite rich man) and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes, (middle class/poor man/aliens)  and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him “You sit here in a good place,” (politician/elite rich man) and say to the poor man, “You stand there or sit here at my footstool,” have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts? But you have dishonored the poor man,. Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts? (pass laws for their advantage) Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called? (Christ follower’s/Christian).

THE TIME HAS COME TO AWAKEN THE SLEEPING GIANT…..

Join The Financial Movement and use the same weapon they are using

You can’t bring a knife to a gun fight, we must match weapon with weapon, or you can’t get to go into the promise land with a slave mentality and don’t expect to fight…

“Slave Wage” What Is Freedom?

What is freedom Is it having a job where the boss owns you? Is it going to a place you don’t like everyday?  Or is freedom feeling threatened and fearing you may lose what you’ve worked so hard to get?  Is it freedom when you must live pay check to pay check, waiting for someone else to decide your fate?

Harriet Tubman “Tubman refused to wait for the Brodess family to decide her fate, despite her husband’s efforts to dissuade her.  [37] “[T]here was one of two things I had a right to,” she explained later, “liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.

 The first articulate description of wage slavery was perhaps made by Simon Linguet in 1763:[19]

The slave was precious to his master because of the money he had cost him… They were worth at least as much as they could be sold for in the market… It is the impossibility of living by any other means that compels our farm laborers to till the soil whose fruits they will not eat and our masons to construct buildings in which they will not live… It is want that compels them to go down on their knees to the rich man in order to get from him permission to enrich him… what effective gain [has] the suppression of slavery brought [him ?]

He is free, you say. Ah! That is his misfortune… These men… [have] the most terrible, the most imperious of masters, that is, NEED. … They must therefore find someone to hire them, or die of hunger. Is this freedom?

The view that wage work has substantial similarities with chattel slavery was actively put forward in the late 18th and 19th centuries by defenders of chattel slavery (most notably in the Southern states of the US), and by opponents of capitalism (who were also critics of chattel slavery).[8][20] Some defenders of slavery, mainly from the Southern slave states argued that workers were “free but in name – the slaves of endless toil,” and that their slaves were better off. 

[21] This contention has been partly corroborated by some modern studies that indicate slaves’ material conditions in the 19th century were “better than what was typically available to free urban laborers at the time.”  [22][23] In this period, Henry David Thoreau  wrote that  “[i]t is hard to have a Southern overseer;  it is worse to have a Northern one;  but worst of all when you are the slave-driver of yourself.” [24]

 

The description of wage workers as wage slaves was not without controversy. Many abolitionists  in the U.S. including northern capitalists, regarded the analogy to be spurious. [25]They believed that wage workers were “neither wronged nor oppressed”. [26] The abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglass declared “Now I am my own master” when he took a paying job.”

[27] Abraham Lincoln and the republicans “did not challenge the notion that those who spend their entire lives as wage laborers were comparable to slaves“, though they argued that the condition was different, as laborers were likely to have the opportunity to work for themselves in the future, achieving self-employment.[28]

 

Opportunity comes to us all, but why are we afraid of change?

Are we shell shocked because so many opportunities have not worked out? Many believers should know, in the book of Proverbs 13:5a “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.” You may ask yourself is this the reason why so many refuse to seize opportunities that continually to come their way? Because they’ve been disappointed so often.

Have we given up, afraid that the next opportunity will be another broken promise?  

Do we throw in the towel and abdicate our life and destiny to our employers, hoping and wishing they will do right by us?

We were taught to go to school, get a good education and find a good job. Later on finding out we have enslave ourselves to debts.

Was this thinking a form of slave mentality that was instilled in us?

The  mantra  should have been “go to school, get a good job with good pay and

become self-employed.”

The purpose of a job should be to transition us to self-employment.

If we find ourselves stuck in a job without thinking about being self-employed,

we have entered the slave mentality world…… where there is only DEATH……Freedom is not found there. 

Don’t be afraid of opportunity that comes your way, 

because when you investigate you just might find your blessing.

Hanging On To A Traditional Job Will Make You Broke!

Why do so many people hang on to a traditional job in these turbulent times?  Are we insane?  We must support and care for our families, but is this the best way to do it? How many people come home from work filled with fear and wondering if they will be the next to be laid off without a Plan B?  Is a traditional job the answer or is it a guarantee you will be broke and in the poor house?  The job market is bleak, yet many people are unemployed or under employed and continue to look for work when there are no jobs.

CEOs get wealthier and large corporations see astronomical profits, while thousands of people are laid off and sacrificed to the corporate bottom line for the sake of the share holders. Why do we look to big corporations to bail us out of this economics mess?  Are we insane?  

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different out come.  How long will you travel down a road that leads to nowhere?  “Those who create jobs are in control and jobs don’t belong to us, but to the creator of them”.  

When you have a job, you are expected to be grateful.  While we must be grateful to have work, this must not be to the point of disrespecting ourselves and doing the work of two or three people for the same pay.  Big corporations know this is an owner’s market and they can have their pick of qualified people, daring you to complain and knowing you won’t quit.  

What’s a person to do?  Get a plan B. What is a plan B?  Nothing more than a back up or alternate plan if your first plan doesn’t pan out. Start your own business, and avoid the traditional route.  If you choose the traditional route, check out one of the main culprits that started this economic mess, bankers…………

Take a critical look at some non-traditional alternatives like direct sales or Network Marketing  where there is low over head, low start up costs and no bank loans.  

What are some advantages of Network Marketing or Direct Sales?  You become your own boss and get paid in proportion to your efforts and by leveraging the efforts of others.  Don’t put your eggs in one basket or tie your cart to one horse, like a traditional job. Have multiple streams of income so if one slows down or dries up, you’ll have another.

Big corporations, small businesses, network marketers and entrepreneurs have one thing in common.  It takes a lot of  people to help increase profits and make money. PEOPLE MAKE OTHER PEOPLE MONEY…..so get into the people business.

A well executed plan B has a multitude of people buying from you, but how do you get people to help your plan B turn into a profit center? Help them first……….How do you help them? Invest into their life and they will invest into yours. Remember RECIPROCITY………………

Is there a Company that allows you to help others first and they’ll help you in return? YES.   Is a company that allows you to invest in others and pay it forward.  The simple act of paying it forward helps you make a large amount of money in a very short period of time………. while helping others do the same.  Don’t believe it?  When you  finish reading this post,Click here

The Art Of Reciprocity

 Reciprocity should be in the forefront of everyone’s mind. It is based on the foundation of building sound relationships.  “Do unto others as you want them to do unto you,” or “What ever you sow you shall also reap.” Now, that’s the gospel truth.
Reciprocity comes from the word reciprocal or reciprocation; which means a state of relation or mutual exchange, and the relation or policy in commercial, the dealings between countries by which corresponding advantages or privileges are granted by each country to the citizens of the other. 
We desire people to patronize our businesses, and in return  we do the same.   Of course, we are influenced by the quality of their products and services and whether they fit our needs.  Reciprocity says that if a business owner has good quality products, if we are not ready to buy, we should send potential customers to them through the referral process.
I find a double standard in the small business community and especially in the Network Marketing arena.  Many Network Marketers desire folks to patronize their business and join them, but their companies deny them the freedom to do the same.
In many Network Marketing companies, you are in business for yourself and by yourself and yet you wonder why your business is not taking off or growing.  One  reason is because the law of sowing and reaping has been activated, because we don’t patronize other business and when that happen you have entered “reciprocity zone.”
Many small business owners or Network Marketers are not friendly and refuse to patronize each other.  So how can you create and attract customers?
 When Networkers ask why their business is not growing and complain that they can’t find people to join them, many times it’s their personality and not the company or the product. 
We need to become friendly and attractive by supporting other people’s businesses when ever we can.  Sometimes customers don’t have the money or the product doesn’t fit their needs, if that the case, send them to another business that can support their needs. 
  
Give more for the sake of giving and patronize other businesses.  Let others know that you are in business and they will reciprocate.  If people don’t understand the art of reciprocity, teach them.  Don’t allow any person or company to stop you from doing this, especially if you are in network marketing.
Companies don’t want you to join a competitor and that’s understandable, but what about a company where there is no competition or conflict of interest?
Remember RECIPROCATE…….. DO UNTO OTHERs WHAT YOU WANT THEM TO
DO UNTO YOU.  AND BE REASONABLE……

Being Courageous In A Time Of Trouble

A look back in history allows us to easily see our mistakes, and sometimes we adjust our actions, making sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes.    Today, you see countless people crying about out-sourced jobs and increasing unemployment.  (Clue: the world as we know it will never be the same.  This is no longer only an American interest, it’s a world interest). Doing business just to sustain American business interests is over.  The train left the station 20 years ago. (Go ask Bill Clinton about NAFTA , CAFTA and FTAA).

People continue to rely on some one else to bail them out of the current economic mess instead of relying on themselves.  Why would a person who has been robbed, go to the robber and ask for protection? Isn’t that stupid?   Why would a person who has a chance to change their livelihood and increase their income and add value to their family’s life, do nothing?  Is this stupidity or laziness?

The book of Proverbs 12:1  states that, “Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, But he who hates correction is stupid”. (New King James Version)

People in the United States have the opportunity to change their income and life, but many refuse to do any thing about it, especially when they must take a radically different  path from what they are used to.  Maybe they are afraid to pull away from the herd.  I’m not sure, but one thing I know is that it takes courage to travel an unfamiliar road, without knowing what lies ahead.

After putting in a full day’s work,  most people don’t have the energy to sustain another job or try something different. Or do they?  Is it because they are too tired?  Are they content with life or simply dealing with apathy and complacency.

What if an individual could add a couple of thousand of dollars a  month to their income from the comfort of their home and change their life substantially?  What keeps someone from taking the challenge and stopping the complaining?  Is the individual lazy or just trifling?

 

In the information technology age, it is not OK to be ignorant, stupid or lazy.  We live in a country that continues to offer opportunity, yet we have 80% of society who’d rather sit back and complain about the economy than do something about their life.   Do you think they have what it takes to do something about it?

I believe God can rain money down on you from heaven, open up the earth and allow gold to pour out upon you if he chooses.  But, He is not in the welfare business. He is in the character building business. He is not into building lazy, trifling, and ignorant people. Many Americans pray for a blessing upon their finances, and God answers them through opportunity.  But,  sitting back and doing nothing is not Godly.  If you’re not a believer in God, that’s OK, but the sentiment still holds true .

Whatever  you believe, it is not good for a man or woman to sit back, do nothing and just complain. The thing you complain about most is the same thing that will come upon you.

 

When opportunity presents itself and you refuse to do anything about it, ask yourself why.   I am not suggesting you jump on everything that comes your way, but at least take a look at it.   If the first opportunity doesn’t pan out, try another. When a person continues to search for success, he will find it. But if a person becomes shell shocked after the first or second attempt, he or she will never find success.

Americans used to rely on factories, industries, and blue and white collars jobs to realize the America Dream.  Times have changed and realizing the dream is not going to happen using the same model.  If you think so, you are fooling yourself and  just maybe you are about to enter The Stupid Zone.

 

Millions of people are making extra money on the Internet, through traditional small businesses, direct sales and network marketing companies.   Thousands of Americans have left the poor line and became wealthy using entrepreneurial opportunities.

 

Many people are stuck in a job-mentality and are content to sit back and do nothing, hoping and wishing big corporations will do the right thing, while their American Dream slips away.  These people continue to make excuses about why opportunities don’t work.  If Thomas Edison had a give-up attitude like some of our job-mentality friends, he wouldn’t have had so many successes.

Americans are innovators and pioneers, so let’s take on some courage and make something happen. Take a look at these videos.  If we don’t do something different, the income gap is widening and disparity is right around the corner. I leave you with this.

In the book of Joshua, three times God told Joshua to take courage and after he took courage success was there. It takes courage to be successful.

WHERE EVER YOU SEE SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE COURAGE IS THERE.

To Serve Or Be Served, That Is The Question

In life there are  those who desire to be served and those who desire to serve. Those who desire to serve have businesses and many of these  businesses bring value to us, help solve problems, make our life  operate a little better, and run more smoothly.  These businesses are run by individuals who allow their business to take on their personality.

Some business owners have an attitude of service and others an attitude of elitism. Those who have an attitude of service, bring a spirit of acceptance and those with an attitude of entitlement bring about a spirit of division or elitism.

People are in business to make money and that’s marvelous, but money shouldn’t be our only reason for being in business.  Our secondary reason to be in business is to serve mankind.  You may know the saying,  do what you love, and the money will follow.” The reason behind this saying is that the Universe promotes the advancement of mankind.  It’s not only for the advancement of certain groups of people who think they deserve to be treated  better because of their color, race, class or location in the world.

When one brings passion and a desire to advance mankind to a business, one has aligned themselves with the Universe and I believe success is around the corner.  Jesus said in John 10:10 that  I have come to give you life that you may have it more abundantly.” It is through this abundance that we find success for all mankind.

Those who provide a service for the betterment of man kind are more likely to be successful, while those who get into business for the sake of being noticed and served are more likely to fail.

Ask yourself  if you like to be treated with respect or neglect?  Have you ever walked into a place of business that totally neglected and disrespected you?  Many businesses cater to the wealthy, for the sake of fast profit, and disrespect those who do not appear to be wealthy.  Appearance alone should not be the only factor that determines if a business will serve you or not.   Businesses with a narrow focus do not serve all of mankind but, only serve a few.  When we are not serving all, we are not advancing all.

All products and services are not for all people, and many people can’t afford certain types of product and services. Take for example a Bentley or a Roll Royce.  Most of us can’t afford these vehicles, but at least the salesman can treat all customers with respect and dignity. It is through this spirit that we will elevate even the lowly soul into the height of respect and servitude.

If Americans embrace the spirit of serving one another, our businesses will flourish and our country will be the fore-runner of a new way of doing business.  Let those who feel they should be served continue their selfish behavior and watch as their empires slip away. Mr Bernie Madoff  and his followers had a want to be served, entitlement attitude.  The reason mainstream investors did not get the same return on their money as Mr. Madoff and his clients, is that they had an unfair advantage, inside information and a feeling of entitlement.  This attitude caused many of  Mr. Madoff’s clients to lose their investments as their financial empires fell.  Those who desire to be rich for the sake of greed,  will never be truly rich.

In closing, let us all become good servants toward all men and take on the spirit of serving one another and watch our country and world grow for the betterment of man kind. If you have a servant heart, and a will to help others, you will be successful in your endeavors.  If you align your product with your action, and your attitude of serving man kind, success is just around the corner……………………………………………..

Doing Business The American Way, Watching The Bankers Pt 2

Senator Louis T. Mcfadden, a chairman of the U.S. Banking & Currency Commission, said in 1934 ” The Federal Reserve is one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen.” In 1963 President Kennedy , by means of an Executive Order, bypassed the FED and issued real United States Notes with no debt or interest attached. Go to a coin dealer and look at a 1963 Kennedy dollar. It says “United States Notes”, not Federal Reserve Note.  According to Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, only United State Notes are legal tender. “Congress (not the FED) shall have the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof.” Immediately after Kennedy’s death the printing was stopped and the existing legal notes were taken out of circulation. (Source: Scoopified, Spring 2011, Nr. 22).

How did it all happen? On December 23rd, 1913, when many members had left for the holidays, the Federal Reserve Act was rammed through Congress. One of the few congressmen who had understood all the issues at stake in this Act, Charles A. Lindberg (father of the famous aviator), said “This Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the president (Wilson) signs this bill, the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalized. The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by the banking and currency bill.”  Later Wilson remorsefully stated: “I have unwittingly ruined  my country.” Thomas Jefferson predicted this would happen if we violated our Constitution and allowed a bank like the FED to exist. Benjamin Franklin said that the primary reason for the Revolutionary War was to stop the Bank of England from doing what the FED is doing to us now. And guess what? The Bank Of England has more than just a little finger in the FED. (see Scoopified). HERE IS PRESIDENT WILSON SIGNING THE FEDERAL RESERVE ACT 1913….

Doing Business The American Way,Watching The Bankers

I received a newsletter from an informative magazine called Scoopified, Spring 2011, Nr. 22.  I am passing it on and know you’ll learn something. “Americans, living in what is called the richest nation on earth, seem always to be short on money.  Wives and husbands are working overtime just to make ends meet. Much of this trouble can be traced to our present debt-money system. When you take out a mortgage, your signed promissory note or promisery note is a negotiable instrument under the Uniform Commercial  Code, and it is used to fund your mortgage. All monies and interest that repay the mortgage are pure profit to the bank.  Non-disclosure by the banks,  created by the bank of this important fact can be legal grounds to have your mortgage taken off the books and forgiven. Just like the Federal Reserve, the banks create money “out of thin air.”   Who is paying for the banks’ profits? All of us through added inflation.  This is shocking and eye-opening information on an unprecedented money scam perpetrated on the entire nation.  A long-overdue education for most of us.  Fight inflation.  Get rid of your bank and join a Credit Union.  (Source:  Scoopified, BANKERS FLEECING AMERICA) THE GREAT AMERICAN RIP-OFF: What is the greatest financial scam in world history? Chances are you won’t even consider the Federal Reserve (FED) to be the recipient of that dubious honor. The FED, a privately owned and tax-exempt bank that is dominated by foreign bankers, obtains Federal Reserve Notes from the U. S. Treasury for roughly 3 cents each, whether it is a one dollar bill or a $50,000 bill. They then sell it back to us at face value, and charge interest for “loaning” it to us. Privately owned expansion and illegal usury of the nation’s money supply is equivalent to state-sanctioned COUNTERFEITING and ECONOMIC PARASITISM.  That is why we have a $8 Trillion plus National Debt, an amount greater than the value of all real property in the country. America is now legally bankrupt.

Can you see what is happening here?  Can you understand that we, as American citizens, have no real money of our own?  So strong is the foreign Bankers stranglehold on America that our government cannot print its own tax-free money for its own citizens. If they could there would be no UNEMPLOYMENT, NO INFLATION, NO RECESSIONS OR  EXCESSIVE TAXES, ETC,  and no astronomical National Debt. ( Source: Scoopified). There is no difference between Republican, Democratic, or Independent it doesn’t matter who is in office.  The bankers control our nation and the world. stay tuned for pt 2

Is Hypocrisy The American Way?


In my last post, I talked about doing business like a hypocrite.  This brought up many issues about how America does business.  Are we really hypocritical in our business affairs and life? Hypocrisy is pretending to be what one is not, or pretending to feel what one does not feel.  A pretense of virtue and piety.  Let’s start from the top down.

THE POLITICIAN:

Many politicians in our government say one thing and do something entirely different.  Could it be they promise what they can’t deliver?  Is the fine line they walk a cause of hypocrisy?  Is it because there is so much red tape and so many moving parts?  Maybe this is why politicians can’t  seem to get a grip on the situation in Washington.  Is it because our politicians are flat out lairs, who don’t care about the American people or who only hope to get rich,  get elected or re-elected so tax payers can support them for the rest of their life?   Many politicians are stealing our country blind and selling us off piece by piece.  How can I make such a strong statement? The proof is in the pudding,  or should I say in the action.  How many politicians have gotten caught with their hands in the cookie jar, and been paid off by corporations via political contribution? ” Many.  Is this the american way of doing business?  Politicians write laws they don’t abide by.  What about doing corruptible things behind closed doors and expecting not to get caught? “Matt 4:22 For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light”.

LOBBYISTS:

Lobbying (also Lobby) is the intention of influencing decisions made by legislators and officials in the government by individuals, other legislators, constituents, or advocacy groups. A lobbyist is a person who tries to influence legislation on behalf of a special interest group or a member of a lobby. Governments often define and regulate organized group lobbying that has become influential. It seems to me that lobbying is a legal way for money hungry politicians to increase their profits while in office. A legal way to BRIBE our officials who are suppose to represent the people and be for the people. What a corruptible and hypocritical way of doing business. “Proverbs 29:4 By justice a king give a country stability, but those who are greedy for bribes tears its down.”

CORPORATIONS:

Corporations in America are positive and productive when they supply jobs for the betterment and advancement of American citizens and our country in general.  But, when big corporations act like slave owners and robber barons, and cause havoc via lobbying and blackmailing individuals to pass laws to enlarge their profits, that is not the American way.  These unscrupulous Robber Barons will sell their mother for a profit.  The way they treat the america public with contempt and disdain, should be outlawed.  What if another corporation or government did to them, what they are doing to the america people?  What if another government squeezed every drop of dignity out of them through more production and less pay, and at the same time threatened to cut off their means of making money or profit?  They would be running behind close doors to the Government asking to be supplemented, or bailed out by way of more money. Proverbs 13:11 Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished and Proverbs 11:28 He who trusts in his riches will fall”.

BANKING INDUSTRIES:

The banking industry’s main purpose  in America is to make money off the back of the people and government. They will cry foul when they can’t get their way.  In 1692 the Bank of England was the first privately owned institution to issue the currency for a nation. Many critics of our current monetary system regard this date, 1692. as the end of  the rule by governments and the beginning of rule by bankers.  Better known as the age of Usury, that banks of issue do, seemingly, create money “out of nothing” and make the nation’s taxpayers pay interest on it remains.  Bank of America initials are BOA a type of snake that constricts its victims to death.  Ever increasing number of bank charges by BOA indicates their true motives and attitudes. “Boas are cold-blooded, unconscionable snakes that will stop at nothing. “Proverbs 28:8 One who increases his possessions by usury and extortion, gather it for him who will pity the poor.”

DOING BUSINESS THE AMERICAN WAY.

Imagine all small businesses in America doing business like  politicians, corporations, lobbyists and the banking industry.  First things first, let’s pass laws that state, as long as we are in business the American public  will support us and our families with a guaranteed salary of $250,000.00 a year. We are guaranteed to drive tax payer automobiles to work and back.  We also pass laws, that allow us to have life time insurance and retirement and at least three percent raises each and every year for the duration of our life span.

When our special friends come to visit us, namely the lobbyists, we give them discounts while at the same time, they add to our profits and bottom line without us even paying taxes.  While acting like big corporations, we run to the Feds to help assist us in doing business overseas and if not, the government makes up the difference through supplemental programs. When we are in the public view we put on a facade like we care, knowing all along  that we don’t.  Acting like the Banking industry, we go to the Federal Reserve Bank and get loans as low as .05% and charge customers we like  2-3% interest and those who we don’t like, 6-9% interest rate.  But we make sure we are not at risk and the customers  are. We continue to make up programs to gouge our customers for more  interest.

If we act like these individuals, our country will not survive and if this is the way Americas continue to do business, we are heading for a major catastrophe in our economic system.

Moral Hazard, Doing Business Like Hypocrites

Many individuals are in business to make a profit,to become self sufficient and support the needs of their families.  If not, they are doing charity work. People have a responsibility to make money for themselves and at the same time deliver a product or a service to their customers that will benefit and assist them.  It is morally wrong for a business owner to sell an inferior product at a high price, knowing the product is not worth the cost. The business owner receives more in cost value, then he gave in use value.

When  business owners behave immorally, they embed negative thoughts into their customers mind, which tell their customers not to trust other businesses.  Should we call this behavioral moral hazard?  Ask youself who is taking on the risk and who is more informed about the product or services?

Wikipedia defines Moral Hazard as, what occurs when a party insulated from risk, behaves differently than it would behave if it were fully exposed to the risk. Economists explain moral hazard as a special case of information asymmetry, a situation in which one party in a transaction has more information than another. In particular, moral hazard may occur if a party that is insulated from risk has more information about it’s actions and INTENTIONS than the party paying for the negative consequences of the risk.

More broadly, “moral hazard occurs when the party with more information about its actions or intentions has a tendency or incentive to behave inappropriately from the perspective of the party with less information.”

Our banking industry is using the term Moral Hazard against customers who have given them billions of dollars of interest payments over the years.  We have banks, who refuses to give out loans to their customers, because their customers can’t repay their loans. So they are saying their customers are a Moral Hazard, because they have taken on the RISK and they know their customers intention.  In other words the bankers are saying, their customers received loans and intended to default. I say the bankers are the ones who created this atmosphere of moral hazard and are doing business like  hypocrites. They made sure the government or customers takes on their RISK.

What Risk?  When bankers receive loans from the Federal Reserve at a low interest rate and give their customers a much higher interest rate, sometimes double or triple the interest rate, who is taking on the risk?  Is it the bankers or the customers?  Who is the hypocrite, and who is a moral hazard?

Moral Hazard occurs when “a person’s intentional negative behavior destroys or lessens the value of a product or services, which someone else backs up with a monetary value.” That person is considered to be a moral hazard. I believe when business owners knowingly passes on unreasonable risk to his customer, and proclaims that the customers is being dishonest, the business owner is the hypocrite.  I think he is a moral hazard, because he has created distrust and injected negativity into our financial system and environment, giving  others the excuse to act immorally, untrustworthy and cynical.

When business owners or big corporations make statements that negatively effect their customers and they are doing the very thing they accuse their customers of doing, they are HYPOCRITES AND A MORAL HAZARD.

This country will financially implode if we people continue to conduct business like hypocrites.

What Is Your Motive?

Most people desire to be successful in life, and many of us go to other individuals for help and support in our endeavors.  What is our motive and intention, when we reach out for help?  If we set ego aside, we must admit that we are asking people for help.  We tend to come across like we have it all together, but behind the facade, if we are real to ourselves and others, our motive will be clear to the individual we are asking for help.

I’m addressing this post to individuals who have the power to help and provide service to others.   Put another way, other people need and desire to be successful and most of the time it has to do with money.  Yes,  they generally want some of your money.

There are many things an individual can give to another beside money, such as love, companionship, friendship, peace, forgiveness, kindness, joy, gratitude, respect  and happiness.  These are all excellent support tools, and of course we should share these things  to one another daily.

To successfully grow a business, one requires financial support from customers.  If an individual or a family member asks you to support them by purchasing a product or service and you have the means to do so,  I believe you should help and assist.  When an individual asks you to invest in a joint venture, their motive comes into question, especially when they lead with a statement like, ” you can make a lot of money if you invest with me.”  In other words, they are saying you can trust me.

When an individual plays on your trust, or relationship, naturally their motive may be suspect.  If they lay all of their cards on the table,  you  know you’re gambling with your money. Most of us don’t like to gamble with our hard earned money or trust someone we don’t know.  If someone throws in words like EXPERT OR  GURUS to bait us, a defensive wall goes up, since in many cases, it is the experts and gurus who got this country in the mess we are in today.  EXPERTS  siphoned money from the retirement accounts of  hard working Americas.   Motive plays a big part in whether we trust an individual to deliver the service they promise.

If an individual doesn’t disclose potential risks in their product or services, they may be solely driven by making money at your expense, without providing any real benefit.   In other words, you become the guineau pig and assume the risk.

People do business to make a profit and as business owners we all want to make money.   I believe the number one motive for doing business, must be to provide a product or service and help our customers  benefit and increase their livelihood. If we have enough business owners and entrepreneurs looking after their customer’s best interest, the natural outcome will be success in business and life. If our product or services can’t benefit our customers and they don’t want or need our product, just plant your seed and allow your fellow man to harvest.

the voice of reason

Running a business or enterprise for profit should not be frowned upon or rejected.  Free enterprise helps run world economies and without this,  we all perish. We mustn’t do business  for the sake of greed. GREEDY MEN BEWARE. HONEST MEN ARE WATCHING (delivering something and not backing it up and the only one who is profiting is you ). THIS MUST STOP…………………………………………………….

Hold Fast To Integrity And Don’t Let Go

In our fast paced society,  things come as fast as they go.  Technology moves faster then we can imagine.  Consider the cell phone, by the time you  learn the operational side of it,  it changes.  Positive change is good, but negative change is detrimental.   If one claims to have integrity today and not tomorrow, it’s not integrity. We must hold on to our integrity no matter what.

Integrity is the life force of our character, and without it we will all be crooks.  Shouldn’t we stand for what is fair, just, and right?  Integrity should not wavier, like the ebb and flow of the ocean tides.  We must make a conscious decision each and everyday, minute, second and hour to walk in integrity.

Walking in integrity must be second nature to us, but some of us have a hard time hanging on to it.  No one is a perfect human being, but we must at least try to walk a straight line.  We must not use the excuse that we aren’t perfect.  Use that excuse to the person who got ripped off or who just got robbed.  If the person who committed the crime had integrity, he wouldn’t have committed the crime and there would be no victim.  Having  integrity will stop much of the madness in our society.

We must take inventory of our conscience and heart to see if we are walking in integrity.  In the movie Wall Street, Michael Douglas asks, “is greed good?”  To a person of integrity, the answer must be ” Absolutely Not”.   I believe that a person shouldn’t be in business if their motive is greed.   If  you have no integrity, I suggest you tell your friends and family to run as far away from you as possible.  Greed destroys integrity and chokes the life out of people.

Imagine a hot summer day, you’re very thirsty and someone gives you a glass of cold water.  You drink the water and are instantly refreshed.  Imagine the same person takes the same glass of water, adds one small droplet of cyanide and you drink it. You may become very sick and might die.  Not having integrity is like ingesting cyanide.  You meet a person to do business with.  He trusts you.  You demonstrate a lack of integrity, don’t follow through with your promise or over promise and under deliver, by giving the customer less in use value then he gave you in cash value. You have just poisoned the customer, the business relationship, and society. Now everyone is drinking from that poisoned cup.

No wonder our corporate/business society is dying slowly.

WHERE IS THE INTEGRITY? we all need to hang on and don’t let go…

Having Integrity In A Post Traumatic World

Ask yourself this question, do I have integrity? Is integrity lost in a world where there is no sincerity and honesty? How can a person find integrity in a post traumatic world that has emotionally shocked it citizens into an apathetic coma?  Who can be trusted?  Many politicians continually lie.  Bankers are stealing.  Pharmaceutical and Insurance companies are draining our society by the billions.  At the same time, the regulators and gatekeepers, aka the FDA, SEC,  FCC and any initials you may come up with, are in bed with the same people who are destroying this country for the sake of money.

Have we American’s sold our integrity to the highest bidder?  Many years ago American stood for something.  But now, we are the laughing stock of the entire world. Without our integrity, there is no trust. If a man desires to have and run a business, do you think he should have integrity?  A half-hearted effort is not good enough, because there is no such thing as partial integrity.

The lust for money is the main culprit that destroys a person’s integrity. We must be aware of the person whose primary concern is to get money by any means necessary.

Entrepreneurs, business owners must pull together to develop a community of integrity and trust. We must support each other to grow in skill and knowledge.  If an individual  chooses not to do business with pride and honesty, we must expose them and sever any association with them.   People without integrity give the entrepreneurial industry a black eye and a bad name.

Over the years,  I have invested time and money into many businesses, and there always seems to be a missing piece.  Without that missing piece, there’s no hope to get that business off the ground.

Every business owner goes into business to make a profit, but to promise something and not deliver is down right dishonest.  We should not add fuel to an already burning fire of corruption and dishonesty. Starting a business is hard enough, but when someone causes cynicism and distrust in the market place and you are legitimate, it is down right suicidal and impossible for a business to survive in such a climate.
We must stop the trauma in our business world and life, by exposing people who don’t have integrity.  Integrity is the life blood to our society, business, schools, government, and our families. Without integrity we will find outselves living in a  society that cannibalizes itself’.

Proverbs 10:9 says, “He who walks with integrity walks securely, But he who perverts his ways will become known”. THAT IS AN  ABSOLUTE GUARANTEE  OR YOUR MONEY BACK.  you will be found out…………if you don’t have INTEGRITY………………

Fiat, Is Your Confidence Wavering?

Here we are a decade into the 21st century, and we continue to experience high unemployment rates, job outsourcing and pensions and 401k’s being lost or stolen.  We can’t rely on city, state and federal officials to sustain our quality of life or to protect our educational system and infrastructure.

Our brave soldiers are engaged in two wars and fighting for freedom, while we repeat behaviors known as the Nixon Shock in 1971, the same behaviors that spurred the Vietnam war causing the U.S. to get off the gold standard.

So what about our fiat money, that is backed by shaky confidence?  Confidence in what?  We have lost confidence in our government officials to do their jobs,  lost confidence in an educationial system that produces second rate citizens and lost  confidence in a banking system that should at least help families stay in their homes.   Take a look at the almighty dollar and see that it is backed by confidence and not by gold.   We are asked to put confidence in paper that has no intrinsic value and is worthless.

What in the world happened?  Who let the fox in the hen house?  Where is the over sight?  Who let the gangsters and crooks into the bank vault and helped them walk out of the front door with all of our gold? (aka politicians).  Here we are in the greatest time in America history and the history of the world, and we allow gangsters and crooks to steal us blind. Who in this world is trustworthy?

The love of money if off the charts.  Greed and corruption are embedded into our society.  When a man decides to do good and help someone else, the person he tries to help doesn’t believe he has good intentions

Cynicism and skepticism are everywhere.  This must stop and we must take a stand.  Our responsibility is to expose gangsters and crooks and blast there business in the street. “What ever is done in the dark will be brought to the light,”  in the public eye. “When good men do nothing , evil will flourish”.

Now is the time to deal with the value of our money, because money only has the value and  confidence we place on it.  How can a cynical and skeptical society place  healthy value on money?  Without confidence in our money, we will allow the value we place on it to slip away.  Then we will find ourselves in THE WORST DEPRESSION we can ever imagine.

Standing On Solid Ground Dealing With Money

Many of us desire to be rich and wealthy, and in our world, success is measured by how much money and how many possessions we have.  It takes money to survive in a material world, yet we live in an environment that continues to tell us what we have isn’t enough.   More, More, More…. I guess this is the curse of living in a capitalistic  society, but what a great society it is.

If only we can find our footing and stand on solid ground while obtaining enough money for ourself and not crossing the line of greediness that drag us to the depths of despair and killing ourselves and others.

Preachers tell us the love of money is the root of all evil.  At the same time, it takes money to meet our needs.   So, what is a person to do? We need money to survive and to have a prosperous life. It’s not the desire for money that makes it evil, it’s what some men do for it and with it.   When men fall into a world of greed, the condition can be worse than any addiction.

Money and Value

Money is nothing more than a tool tied to the value people place on it.  It’s within that value, that money becomes powerful, and power is used to either help or destroy our fellow men.   This power or value of money means  something different to each of us.

Mother Teresa didn’t hoard or collect money, but it took money to house, feed and clothe her and the poor that she cared for.  Mother Teresa placed more value on the needs of the people than she placed on herself  and accumulating money.  Mother Teresa needed money, but her feet were on solid ground and she had a healthy perspective on how to use money.  I am not saying that we should all become like Mother Teresa, but the way she used money is, in my opinion a good place to start.

Would You Choose Gold or Food?

Imagine having all the gold in the world and your food runs out.   I have food and you have gold.   Can you eat your gold?   You might offer to buy some food from me, but I tell you I don’t need your gold, because when I’m hungry gold won’t sustain me.

Imagine you have all the gold you can handle and you place it in the bank and the system as we know it crashes.  You go to the bank and try to retrieve you gold and the banker tells you your gold is not there.   Money is only as good  as the value people place on it.   If the food runs out, we have a problem.  If water runs dry, we have a problem.  If money runs out,  we’ll find another commodity to barter with.

When Is Enough Enough?

How much does one person need to support themselves and their family?  It’s not up to you or me to determine what a person needs or wants.  I think life is about each and every human being having their heart’s desire. The problem arises when greed is introduced into the equation.

When men value money above the life, health and survival of another human being and destroy someone’s dreams and desires, I believe man has lost his footing and is no longer standing on solid ground. This is where lust, greed, and fear consumes the individual and his money becomes his god.

For The Love Of Money

(Before reading this post go to the bottom and play the video while reading this post)

In my last post I spoke about the wolf in sheep’s clothing and how predators take advantage of unsuspecting victims.  The foundation for my position is based in scripture,  which I consider to be the ultimate truth.  My intention is  not to convert you to a biblical viewpoint, or argue the subject,  but to reveal some facts.

Many individuals simply don’t care about anyone else’s well being, including their own families.  They manipulate, lie, steal and cheat to increase their profits instead of helping others.   I believe we must help and assist our families first,  and then help others as if they were family members, because a person who does not take care of his own is not worth much.

Love or Money

Loving thy neighbor as thy self comes into play, and if we adopt this  attitude, we’ll be better off.  Unfortunately, this kind of love is far from the truth we see daily.  Our society  has bred skepticism and cynicism, due to a lack of trust demonstrated when men love money instead of each other.  Money becomes their god and they will do anything to get it.

Ghetto Entrepreneurs and Executives

Entrepreneurial young men in inner cities, have the gift of sales and promotion, but their energy is mis- directed when they market deadly, destructive substances that destroy entire communities and our country, one community at a time.

Executives in big corporations line their pockets with enormous amounts of money, that would be impossible for one  man to reasonably spend in a life time.  So, how much is enough?  The spirit of greed and lust is never satisfied, which is the essence of evil behind the love of money.

The Love of Money

1 Timothy 6 : 9-10 says,  “Those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition”.  VS 10 ” for the love of money is a root of all kind of evil”.  When men have their heart set on only acquiring money and will do anything to get it, evil temptation shows up and destruction follows.

What about prostitution? A beautiful young lady sells her body for money, one of the most precious gifts God has given her. What men and woman won’t do for money. Dope pushers destroy neighborhoods and our country from the bottom up. CEO’S, CAPITALIST and POLITICIANS destroying our country from the top down. What’s the difference?  NOTHING.

What about so called EXPERTS? Let the buyer beware. They promise one thing and deliver something different or present something like a fix all and then up sell you, without delivering what you requested.

Maybe they love money instead of helping others.  No wonder we have such a hard time building business relationships and trust. Experts and so called Gurus must come clean about their motives.  Do they have a true desire to help or is it all about MONEY?

(REMEMBER THOSE WHO HELP ENOUGH PEOPLE TO GET WHAT THEY WANT, THEY WILL  GET WHAT THEY WANT)

Get Our Priorities Straight

Let us put people and their well being first and and the money will follow.  First seek the way God does things, align yourself in love and the things you are after will manifest,  EVEN YOUR MONEY and you will be able to keep it. When you put money first, it will take wings and fly away. Don’t  believe it? Ask Ken Lay or Bernie Madoff.

Here is a  song, written by Kenneth Gamble, Leon Huff, and Anthony Jackson recorded in Philadelphia International Records. ” For The Love Of Money”  Sung by the O-Jay’s in 1973. Listen and take heed.  It’s long, but worth the 7 minute listen.

Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

My recent posts have focused on Baby Boomer’s, A Job Mentality and how our current system cares less about the American worker than any other time in history.  If you haven’t read these posts, I urge you to read them now by clicking on the links.  I’ll be releasing a FREE Report called  Wake Up, which explores this further.

 

Americans continue to rely on our government, bankers, investors,  financial planners and other self-proclaimed EXPERTS.  They all have one thing in common, Your Money.   Millionaire, Mike Dillard sent a recent e-mail highlighting a 60 Minutes clip about  the death of the 401k and how hard working people are being affected negatively, in some cases losing everything.  The video clip really made me very, very mad and prompted me to write this post and dedicate it to you.  I am glad that Mike Dillard is so passionate about this also.

If you do not have a heart to help others, stop reading this post. I’m a firm believer in the quote, “If you help enough people get what they want, you’ll get what you want,” because it is based in scripture,  “What ever a man sows,  he shall also reap.”

We must be aware of individuals who come to us like a sheep, but who are really wolves disguised in sheep’s clothing.  I read in the scripture that the children of this world are more shrewd than the children of light.   This means that we have individuals who wake-up every morning with the sole purpose of making a fast buck off the backs of unsuspecting people.

You may not think about stealing, but they do, You may not think about murdering anyone, but they do. You might not even think about lying to anyone, they do.

They lie to you not only once or twice, but constantly because it is in their nature. Their God is your money. Don’t believe it?    Where is the pension, retirement account or 401k?  Money doesn’t just vanish, it changes hands, From your’s to theirs.

Becoming an Entrepreneur pt2

In the post, Becoming an Entrepreneur PT 2, I said there was a downside to starting a network marketing business.  Here are a couple of reasons why.  You have  networkers presenting business opportunities to people who may or not be capable and qualified to do the business.  As a result, many networkers come across as unprofessional and  like the stereotypical used car salesmen or con- artist.

Leading with money, making outrageous promises, telling individuals they can become wealthy in 30 days demonstrates that you don’t know or caring about the individual you are trying to sell to.

Trying to convince a potential customer to buy and using canned sales pitches, shows you aren’t aware that the potential customer has vacated right in front of you.  In other words, the body is there, but the mind is not.  This is one of the main reasons why potential customer dislike network marketers, because they present themselves like con artists.

Can you imagine thousand s of net-workers acting and behaving like this?  No wonder people are fed up with network marketers and the latest business opportunity.

Their is a down side to network marketing, but the problem is easy to fix.  Training individuals to become a true professional networker is the key.

The potential up side to Network Marketing out weighs the down side because of the personal development and transformation that takes place when an individual makes the decision to become a professional net-worker.

Professional Network Marketing produce self esteem and as Steve Siebold says, mental toughness.  Once a person decides to go all the way, without excuses and take their profession seriously, transformation takes place.

The transformation will occur in the individual’s mind and heart. When they continue to press through, transformation will also take place in their finances and the Network Marketing Industry.  Change occurs when an individual has a burning desire to change and everything around  him or her must change,  including their money.

Your money changes, with your knowledge, education and understanding change. Here are some simple facts.

  • Don’t graduate high school = 0 – 7.00 per hr. avg.
  • Graduate high school = 7.00 – 15.00 per hr. avg.
  • Graduate Jr. college =  15.00 – 25.00 per hr. avg.
  • College graduate = 25.00 – 30.00 per hr. avg.
  • Post graduate = 30.00 per hr and up avg.

Most individual who graduate is not guarantee this salary at the start, but most likely they will reach this level.

Why do Net-workers think they can get into business without training, education and understanding in their profession?  Having a desire to make money without the right training or education is almost impossible.  We must remember this “Our training, education and understanding always matches our money.”  Network Marketing give you the greats and faster return on your investment , only if you take your profession seriously.  Don’t believe it, click here.
