Where is the individuality?
Have a look around. Everything you touch, smell, see or touch influences you in one fashion or another. When you walk by someone with some great smelling cologne or perfume, you want to know what it is so that you can have it too. When your neighbors by a new car, it makes you want one. When they get a brand new grill out back, you want to know what brand it is. From all of the latest electronics to new clothes, most people are just trying to keep up with what everyone else is doing.
The Biggest Problem
This is what I know. Americans income to debt ratio is rediculous. Howcomne?For the most part, it is lack of education in their financial bucket and trying to impress those around them. It’s a status sickness. Trying to have some sort of social status has crippled folks.
Let me ask you a question. How many people do you know that live way beyond their meands? How many folks have more than one car payment? It’s retarded. Only now are we noticing the reprocusions. People who should have never gotten a line of credit were issued credit years back and now with the countrys financial crisis, layoffs have caused an all time high of defaults on those loans to those banks which almost caused a near financial melt down in our country.
It’s not only the banks fault, but people having the need to feel important by material possessions.
We Live In a Different World.
The old school model of going to school, getting an education and going to work for a large corporation is gone, done and history. It all has to do with experience, period.
Dont get me wrong, I am not down on education, in fact I highly endorse it. What I do have a problem with is the naive people who are going back to school for their masters degrees and doctorates only to find out that there are no jobs when they get out. The promise of higher pay because of university papers is now crushed because corporations are not paying more money for higher education.
What folks dont realize is that employees are liabilities to the company. When companies need to lower their liabilities, people are the first to go, period. Its happened dozens of times over the past few decades with more to come.
How To Separate Yourself From The Crowd.
The only place that I have seen that has not been affected by the economic downturn is the Internet. It has withstood the test of time, other than the dot.com crash of the 1990s, which was just stupid.
Its the only medium in which you can conduct commerce anywhere in the world, reach billions of people and communicate in a split second with people thousands of miles away.
The sad fact is, most people (Americans), have not the slightest clue on how to monetize the Internet to their benefit. For most, they just play on Twitter, Myspace, Facebook and Google.
The greatest thing you could possibly do right now is to learn how to market products online. Even if you dont have a product, there are thousands of companies that do and have affiliate programs set up in a way so that you can share in the profits, when ever you have sold something of theirs.
Why not have a dozen affiliate products to promote online. After all, isnt twelve streams of income better than one?
These are skills that once learned, can produce an absolute fortune for people. Chances are, if your reading this, you probably wont take any action on it. Thats just the way people are but thats OK. More for me and my partners.
Its Time To Take Ownership Of Your Life
Once again, I am not down on jobs cause I still have one. Why? Because when your on track to make $300K this year and your Internet business is not producing that yet, its hard to walk away from it, thats why.
But here is what I know. Anytime you have someone else signing your paycheck, you are at their mercy. You are not in control of your financial future. Over a year ago, I started educating myself on how to market online as well as how to build an organization online in the network marketing industry.
Over the past 16 months, I have learned a ton as well as made thousands upon thousands of dollars online as well as helped others to do the same. The Internet is a goldmine, the question is, when are you going to stake your claim?
What excuses are you making as to why your in debt, dont have enough money to do the things that you want to do, when you want to do them. The time is now, not tomorrow, next week or next month. JUST DO IT!!
