Most people don't want to be confronted with the truth. Sometimes, it is because they are afraid of what it will sbhow or mean to them. Other times, they just don't want to deal with it and/or are afraid of what they might have to do to be able to cope with it.
This past weekend, I was asked to give a presentation on where things are going with the economy and the trends to watch. While I discussed my optimism in the ability of the individual to succeed and find ways to thrive no matter what type of economy we face, the data does not look good long term. First an foremost, I showed data from the United States annual financial report that came out in February (yes, the Government produces a financial report just like a corporation produces their annual report). In the report, there are some very disturbing things for example, the actual "Net Income" for the government is -$34.1 Trillion. On top of that, Social Security is -$75.9 Trillion in the hole. To put this in perspective, the Universe that we live in is 13 Billion years old. The US debt is is hopelessly, rediculously so large that it can never be paid back and it won't.
After discussing this and several other topics, we spoke about what we can do to prepare and ensure we can succeed in the future as these problems grow and inevitably impact out lives. One person said to me, "As you presented, I found myself feeling scared and helpless, but now I see that I'd rather have the knowledge and truth and prepare now, than stick my head in the sand like most people. I can prepare and set myself up to succeed and be in a position to help others...and if things don't come to pass, I'm still in good shape. Thank you!"
I was very excited to hear this as that was the point I wanted to make. We must seek knowledge and not be afraid of the truth our lives. We may not like what the truth tells us, but that gives the knowledge and ability to prepare and make better decisions to help our success - in all areas of life.
If you want to make a bigger impact on your success and put yourself in a position to make a bigger difference in your life and that of those around you, seek truth and knowledge and help share it with others.
