Words to Remember and Live By

Just a brief note, since I've been doing a bit of updating.

"This just in, from the History Department:

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." -- Cicero , 55 BC

"Hey, if it's good enough for Rome... "

Yes, WE CAN.

The Economy is Sh*t!

“The Economy is Sh*t! And this is the best I can do!”

Doubtless you’ve heard people around you say this. Is it true?

It is, if you believe it. However, ours is a robust economy, that admittedly has taken a major hit, not the least of which is the Government’s boozy sailor’s spending habit of the last few months. Despite what people would have you think, we cannot spend ourselves into prosperity. I’ve tried it. All I’ve gotten is debt. And debt robs us of opportunities to take our money and invest it in truly important things.

Like what, you ask?


Not just any people, mind you. You have to find like-minded persons, ones who will watch your back while you watch theirs. What is more important, though, is you find people who are going to win, no matter what.

I don’t mean the people who will lie, cheat or steal to get what they want. Those people only win in short term. I mean the people who will, if they are knocked down nine times, get up the tenth time and carry forward.

So, given that this economy is robust, though stressed, what do you do?

Look for the niche. Get/be lean and mean against the obstacles. Be generous with the help you give others. Deliver on your promises, and give a little bit more. Learn what you need to. Put it to use.

Keep moving, don’t give up. Remember your passion.

That bears repeating:

REMEMBER Your Passion.
Remember YOUR Passion.
Remember Your PASSION.

You say you don’t have a passion? Find one. Then, let it take you from there.

Yes, You CAN!
