A Call to Action

The world, or at least my view of it, has become a media driven machine. The problem with this is that it seems most of the media has no desire to report anything positive or upbeat. Seriously, take a hard look at your daily news and see what the ratio is between good vs. bad. Better yet, why don't we all just stop watching the crap?

In the last several months all we hear about is the economy being in the tank. I think that some if not all of this has been created by the media "Fear Machine". Yes, there are some people who have lost their jobs and that is unfortunate. However, the majority of people able to work in our country are still working. Yes, some major companies have failed recently or declared bankruptcy. Many, if not all of the companies that have crashed and burned recently have done so due to poor leadership and management and not the economy. Bottom line is, the idiots that were "flying the plane" saw the mountain and refused to change course..... CRASH!!! A great economy would not have saved companies from that.

So here's my call to action and challenge for you:

Stop crying in your beer and complaining about how bad the economy is. Stop repeating the lies and skewed perspectives generated by the media and thereby perpetuating the problem. We can change this, just like the media has done. Let's start a campaign of positivity and refuse to accept anything less than a thriving economy. We live in a country of abundance. The homes we live in, the cars we drive, everything..... Think ABUNDANCE!!!!

Let's turn this around, we have the power and the responsibility to do so!

Just believe!!!

Write Your Own History...

Today is a huge day for America. Election day..... Today we will choose the next President of the United States and no matter which party's candidate is ultimately elected, it will be a very significant day in the history of our country. We will either have the first African-American President or the first female Vice-President.

Everyday is a very significant day in your life and ultimately your history. Winston Churchill said, "History will be kind to me for I intend to write it". That's what we do. Every decision we make, every action we take, we are writing our history. We have the ability to create our reality through our attitudes, thoughts, and subsequent actions. Choose wisely and make sure that you are writing your history with intention.

Just believe...
