Most governments are wolves in sheep coats. They attempt to be seen to be giving with one hand – but they take it away with the other. And this drives most of it’s population to rant and rave and protest one way or another.
Even the most sincere ones cannot save the world – the mess is too big and they can never make everyone happy all of the time. So they usually do what is going to vote them in in the next election.
What we must realize is that there are some things that are not in our control and probably never will be. However, our attention must be on our own ‘CIRCLE OF INFLUENCE’ , as Stephen Covey wrote in the famed 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE.
In other words, there are many things that we can do something about
So – when the government comes up with bright ideas ( or not) everyone has to THINK FOR THEMSELVES and not follow like sheep. For those that are winging – get out of the cozy comfort zone ( stop thinking that the government OWES you anything ). Get a grip, where is your pride and dignity. Nobody owes you anything – get out there and become proactive with new ideas, ‘roll up your own sleeves’ and work towards becoming ‘self sufficient’ and fully responsible for your self, your family, your business your career – all within the legal frame of whatever government is on the ‘stage’ at the time.
However, most humans, especially from affluent societies like ours, consider THINKING to be HARD WORK. Taking the RESPONSIBILITY is too hard, it’s easier to pass the buck. It’s the parents fault… the teachers… various abuse at different stages of our life… the boss… the government.
Life does deal cruel blows and sometimes it takes many years to recover. However, at the end of the day, it’s not what happens to us – IT’S WHAT WE DO WITH IT THAT COUNTS !!!
Could be judged as harsh by some, but I make no apologies and no I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth and I have had a generous share of pain in my own journeys.We have countless examples of people in dire circumstances performing ‘miracles’ in their lives !
The saying : “What doesn’t kill you – makes you stronger”- is true.

You don’t have to do all the work alone
It is a very small percentage of the population that is generally happy, families in tact, debt free or finances under control, sound business or career and relatively healthy emotionally and physically.
In everyday life we see people turn to smoking to control their anger
drugs to make them happy alcohol to camouflage their fear…and then one thing leads to another !!!
Lack of responsibility in our lives is the underlying culprit of not just seemingly small and harmless everyday situations we bring on ourselves, but can blow out into emotional problems leading to depression and further mental dysfunction
