I have to admit that I bought into it as well over the last 2 weeks, I watched countless hours of CNBC, CNN and read the latest horror story on the many financial websites that I visit. However thanks to an e-mail subscription that I received from Matt Furey, I realized that there is more to it than meets the eye.
You see we can not play the blame game about our own personal finances. No one else is responsible for where we are at financially but ourselves. Regardless of outside economic conditions people have always found ways to survive and even thrive.
If you want some examples then I would highly suggest that you pick up a copy of Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich“. Even though it was first published in 1937, there are still valuable lessons that can still be applied today, and that is probably why it is still in print and has been a best seller for many years. While you are at it, another gem that I would recommend to help get your mind on the right track is James Allen’s “As a man thinketh” first published in 1918, a short book but not one that you should read quickly.
The whole point that I am trying to make here is this “Invest in your own economy”. Do not believe everyone who says that the sky is falling. You make the choices that determine your current reality, make better choices, pay off your debts ( ask me how if you need to), look for ways to grow you income (start your own business, sell on line, there are countless ways), and last but not least train your brain and focus on where you want to go.
Make this a great week.
