“Successful people recognize crisis as a time for change – from lesser to greater, smaller to bigger.”
— Edwin Louis Cole, Author

In the times of change we are in there are many different interpretations of the ups and downs we are encountering. While the masses are watching CNN (Constant Negative News), and CNBC (Constant Negative Broadcasting Coverage), not to mention reading all the news papers there are still those who are keeping their heads down and are accomplishing their goals.

I understand people want to stay informed, but we don’t have to be inundated. The world is going to continue to turn and life will go on. We must realize with every shift and change is an opportunity and learning experience. Life is more abundant than ever, however to acquire this abundance many of us must step out of our comfort zone and actually take time to learn.

I know this is a crazy idea, but if you study wealth you will find out the wealthiest people never stopped learning throughout their entire life. They continue to adapt with the times. If we are not learning and growing we become stagnant, and stagnation breeds disease. Break the word disease down, dis-ease, something that is not at ease. What are many people facing presently? Shockingly enough, uneasiness! Yet they still resist personal education.

It is interesting that the unemployment rate is up, and while jobs are being lost left and right, many of these out of work people are out looking for their next “secure” position instead of stepping out of the box and doing something to create long term passive assets. With all the opportunity out there in various industries that are offering the advantage of starting a venture on your own, with no boss, and the potential for passive and residual income there really are no acceptable excuses.

Buy a book, attend a seminar, sit down with someone who is or has achieved what you want your life to look like, and get out there and make it happen!

Have a spectacular day!
