It’s Time to Get Serious

It's Time

I don’t know what’s happening in your neck of the woods. But from where I’m standing things are beginning to get a little rough around the edges. Homes are starting to sell again but the prices keep getting lower and lower. Companies are starting to hire but the starting wages are extremely low. People are starting to buy new cars but the price of gas is starting to go through the roof! That being said, all I can tell you is that it’s time to get serious!

As a rule I try to share encouraging information that will help uplift, inspire and motivate. However, I can see the handwriting on the wall and it doesn’t look good.

I want to be optimistic about things.

I want to believe that things will get better.

I want to believe that this is all just a dream.

Unfortunately, this is as real as it gets. There will be no sudden change that will fix what took years to tear-down. There will be no more bailouts to help you get over the hump.

Your income tax refund will only go so far. In fact most people are using their income tax return to pay past due bills.

The bottom line is that it’s time to make a change.

It’s time to get your house in order like only you can.

It’s time to make a difference and to control your own destiny.

It’s time to get serious and if you can head my words, you can move forward while the rest of the world is on standby.

What can you do?

Here are a few things to consider…

  1. Stop relying on your job’s retirement/pension fund – Companies are starting to put an end to all pensions and retirement benefits. They are leaving the decision up to the employees. Asking them to take advantage of some type of company’s saving plan.
  2. Stop relying on the Government – I am not a political person, but I will tell you that in the eyes of “Uncle Sam” you are just a collectable tax number.
  3. Become your own boss – You are capable of witty inventions. You have talents skills and desires…Use them!
  4. Create a product – You don’t have to do it as big as Steve Jobs or Bill Gates. You just have to do it.
  5. Start a small business – Try as you might but know that a small businesscan make a huge difference in your yearly bottom line.

Consider this, there are those who can and then there are those who sit on the can. The decision is yours to consider. Remember, “Life is what you make it.”
