Economic Crisis and Self Development

With the current economic decline taking its toll on jobs, finances, institutions, cost of living, etc... It is monumentally hard to keep food on the table for some people. The old times of living in which we could not worry so much about job stability and banks going bankrupt are long gone and hopefully one day it may return but for now we are stuck in this downward spiral and for some people, it has turned into a downward spiral of depression, fear and wrecked their self esteem and confidence.

People become worried and freak out when they don't have a job anymore and have a family to feed, house mortgage repayments, food, clothing, pet costs and much more... I want you to do one thing for me, write down on a piece of paper everything you have that you are thankful for, then stick this up on your fridge and each day for the next week or so look at it when you get something from the fridge or stick it beside your computer and realize that despite the current economic troubles, you are doing okay. You have a computer and internet connection (how else would you read this???) and you have clothes, food (I never have enough but that is beside the point) and a roof over your head.

If we give thanks for what we have and don't give into fear or depression, fight it off and remain strong and confident!

“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
