Reasons for the Great Loss of Good Paying Jobs in the US

In this post to my blog I am going to to discuss why the US has lost so many of its good paying jobs. As usual, I have identified the perpetrators of this problem. However, I don’t claim to have any proof to back up my allegations. The following discussion is based solely on my personal assumptions, beliefs, common sense, and conclusions. You are free to dispute everything that I state in this post.

Why the good jobs are disappearing – The loss of good jobs in the US is due to the actions of globalist corporations in promoting free-trade agreements and using outsourcing of good paying jobs to increase their short-term profits. The increased profits earned by these corporations primarily benefits the top level managers and the stockholders. There also have been certain short-term benefits to the people in US from the resulting low-cost of imports. However, I believe these benefits are short-term because of the eventual disastrous consequences of these actions by globalist corporations.

In order to make sales in foreign countries these corporations have had to build factories in these countries and provide them with the secrets of their technology. Thus these foreign countries have gained enormous benefits. At one time these countries only had low skilled workers and no significant technology. But over the years they have developed their own skilled labor force, college trained experts, and improved technology. At some point, I believe these foreign countries will have the economic strength and know how to compete with and overtake the US. When that happens these foolish and greedy globalist corporations will no longer be in the catbird seat.

Contributing factors to the loss of good jobs – Besides the primary reasons for the loss of good jobs in the US, as discussed above, there are certain other secondary factors. The most important of these are reviewed below.

The impact of changes in the world economy – After the end of World War II, the US stood alone as the dominant economy and manufacturing power. Because the people and government of the US were goodhearted, they used the Marshall Plan to rebuild the economies of other countries. Thus it was inevitable that the US would gradually lose its dominant position in the world economy. However the greed and ineptitude of US corporations greatly accelerated this change.

The impact of labor unions – There was a time in the US when the workers were abused by the robber barons and other large employers. As a result of these inequities, labor unions arose to help the workers get a fair deal from the employers. After a certain amount of time these labor unions were successful in achieving this goal. Then the question was, should the unions be content with getting a fair deal for the employees, or should they use their power to try getting as much as possible from the employers. Human nature being what it is greed is a common factor in life. I believe that many of these unions wanted too much from employers. The result was that many employers wanted a more beneficial environment, such as low-wage foreign countries

The impact of governmental rules – Bureaucracies tend to have a life of their own, apart from their designated purpose. Thus the heads of bureaucracies want to increase their empire. They want to promulgate more rules and increase the number of people needed to enforce these rules. The result is that they issue rules that cost more than their perceived benefits to society. And the business people that have to abide by these rules, rules that increase expenses and often lack common sense, tend to rebel. Then they desire to conduct business in foreign countries that don’t have all of these annoying and expensive rules and regulations.

Conclusion – Because of the lack of good paying jobs in the US, you may have to provide your own employment. Here are some ways you might be able to achieve this goal.

  • You can review all of the so-called opportunities promoted on the Internet for ways to make money at home or on the Internet. Then instead of paying someone for their plan on making money, just use their ideas. Then you can research the Internet for ways to use these ideas to create your own income producing venture.

  • Amazon.com has many Kindle books for sale that describe various ways for ordinary people to make money. This bookseller allows you to review the first 10% of the book’s contents. This usually will allow you to review the table of contents for each Kindle book. Then again you can research the Internet for ways to use these ideas to create your own income producing venture.

  • If you have knowledge and skills about certain things that can satisfy the needs and wants of people, perhaps you can create reports with this information and sell them as a Kindle book on Amazon. You could also set up a free blog site to promote these books. You could provide useful information on the blog and also promote your Kindle books. This would be a very low-cost venture and require only your time and effort.

The Plight of Most Retired People Living on Social Security

This is my second post on attempting to explain why terrible things have happened to America. The following information is based on my personal assumptions, beliefs, conclusions, and opinions.

When discussing who is to blame for all the terrible things that have happened to America, I always assume that The Powers That Be (TPTB) and their cousins Certain Rich And Powerful Entities (CRAPE) are the culprits. I refer to these two groups as the Elites.

Of course these elites will always claim to be acting in the best interests of the country. I will let history be the judge of their actions.

So let’s proceed with discussing the plight of most retired people living on Social Security benefits.

Their Sources of Income – Most retired people living on Social Security benefits have two common sources of income. Their primary source of income is their Social Security benefits. But some of them have managed to accumulate various investments. I’m not going to discuss retired people who live on pensions other than Social Security, since there is such a wide diversity of these other plans.

Social Security benefits are adjusted annually based on the official inflation index for the prior year as published by the government. These increases tend to be relatively small, as discussed below. I recall a recent year when the government claimed there was zero inflation for the prior year. So there was no increase to Social Security benefits for the next year.

Most retired people tend to favor safe investments since they don’t have time to recoup any losses from risky investments. (Note: Wall Street brokers sometimes refer to risky investments as high-yield investments, as a way to encourage their purchase.)

Their Plight – The people who live on their Social Security benefits are caught between two opposing forces that are forcing them into a life of desperation. On the one hand, the US government provides a bogus inflation index that is used to adjust the Social Security benefits annually. This official inflation index has been modified in order to understate the actual increase in the cost-of-living.

On the other hand, the Federal Reserve System (the Fed, which is the US central bank) has a policy of increasing the inflation rate by 2% every year. Of course the actual inflation rate may rise far above this desired goal at various times. The Fed deliberately creates inflation by issuing excessive amounts of US currency. This is done in accordance with Keynesian, a bogus economics theory used by the elites to justify their manipulation of the economy.

The result of these two opposing forces is that the actual cost of living continues to increase. However, Social Security benefits continue to fall below what is needed to maintain a constant standard of living.

Actions of the elites – You might wonder why the government issues these bogus reports on the condition of the economy. Well, if you make all these promises about how you’re going to benefit the voters, you have two choices. One choice is to do whatever it takes to fulfill your promises. The other choice is to issue bogus reports that purportedly show what a great job you have done. I believe the government has taken the latter course of action. (Note: If you want to see accurate reports about the state of the US economy, shadowstats has them.)

Actually, the Fed has two policies that harm retired people. One long-term policy is to continually destroy the value of the US dollar in order to create inflation. Since the Fed (a private bank mostly owned by foreign banking interests) was secretly foisted upon the American people in 1913, the value of the US dollar has decreased by about 99%. When you watch movies about past times you might wonder at how valuable the money was back then.

A more recent policy of the Fed has been to drive interest rates far below what they should be. The result of this is that most of the safe investments used by retired people earn very low returns. So retired people have Social Security benefits that are far below what they should be, and earnings from safe investments that are far below what they should be.

The only way out – One of the results of these actions of the elites is that some retired people had to go back to work. Poor uncle Joe and aunt Martha. They worked their fingers to the bone while looking forward to a blissful life in retirement that was promised by the government. Surprise, surprise! They have been playing a Monopoly game where the dice are loaded against them. Only the elites are allowed to have dice that are loaded to favor them.

Conclusion – Well, I have lambasted the elites enough for this posting. You probably want to know what you can do to improve things for your own future or current retirement. So here are some of my suggestions.

If you are still young enough to try some risky investments you might invest in some precious metals (gold and silver) or the stocks of companies that mine precious metals. If you buy physical precious metals, such as coins or bars, be sure to take possession of them and keep them in secure storage that is under your direct control. You can talk to a stockbroker about various gold and silver Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) that are safer than buying individual mining stocks.

The problem that most people have with risky investments like these is they get overwhelmed by their emotions when these investments are at their peak and refuse to sell. The best way to trade risky investments is to avoid the bottom and the top. This means you should not buy them until a new upward trend in prices has been firmly established. Then you should sell them when everyone starts talking about what a great investment they have become.

If you are older you need to think about some way to make some money on the side. I don’t necessarily mean taking some low-wage job someplace. I mean using your acquired experience, knowledge, and skills to provide information or a service to people at a reasonable price. Some of my inexpensive Kindle books on Amazon can help you make some money on the side. To review these books, click the link below:

The Growing Division Between the Rich and the Not So Rich

 

This is the first post to my blog about all the bad things that have happened to America. As to who is responsible for these bad things, I believe there are two main groups. First, there is The Powers That Be (TPTB) group. In some  circles this group is referred to as the ruling class. Their main business is running a country or powerful international organizations. Second, there is the Certain Rich And Powerful Entities (CRAPE) group. They are primarily concerned with their own affairs. However, they may exert their control or influence over TPTB group from time to time. Some individuals may go back and forth between these two groups.

I have decided that this first post will be based solely on my own assumptions, beliefs, and opinions. I don’t want to involve other people in this first post. Besides, it is very difficult to find out what is really going on when TPTB and CRAPE make decisions behind closed doors. This is doubly true when people from these groups also own and control the mainstream media. In other words, what passes for news on the mainstream media sometimes may be nothing more than self-serving propaganda.

I am sure that many readers of these posts will disagree with me. All of my readers are entitled to their own beliefs and opinions. Any comments, good or bad, about this post are welcome.

This first topic concerns the large and growing division between the rich and the not so rich in our country. Things weren’t always like this. There was a time when the government wasn’t as closely controlled by CRAPE, when certain large corporations weren’t so greedy, and when there weren’t so many onerous government regulations. So let’s discuss these three matters.

Control of the Government – One of the reasons that CRAPE are getting richer is because they have a certain amount of control over the government. How is the government controlled by CRAPE? Well, if politicians want to get elected at the national level, they need a lot of money to run their campaigns. And when CRAPE provide large amounts of money to politicians, they expect to receive benefits from the government many times greater than their campaign donations. So CRAPE receive many undeserved benefits.

Of course, if you believe that large donations from CRAPE entitle them to substantial rewards, maybe their benefits aren’t undeserved after all. Depends on your point of view I guess. Personally, I think that these large campaign donations are nothing but bribes. And I think these bribes should be outlawed. But don’t hold your breath.

New members may enter Congress expecting to benefit the ordinary people. But I believe most of them will eventually succumb to the allure of power. Then they realize they need to satisfy the demands of CRAPE if they want to stay in office.

So what benefits do CRAPE receive from the government? Well, the politicians pass laws that include many benefits to CRAPE. Of course these benefits aren’t going to be spelled out. A certain law isn’t going to say that ABC Corporation gets the following benefit. Instead the law is going to have some arcane language that describes how to qualify for a certain benefit. And lo and behold, only ABC Corporation or other generous donors qualify.

Certain Greedy Corporations – Up until about 1970 employees received their fair share of the rise in productivity of large corporations. Productivity refers to the relation of income to expenses. When income rises faster than expenses, this denotes an increase in productivity. So why do many employees no longer receive their fair share of this increased income? I suppose you could say the management at certain large corporations decided they were more deserving than their employees.

I believe there is a natural progression in the life of a successful corporation. Let’s say that a business is started by eager entrepreneurs will have some great idea they want to put into action. As part of this great idea they want to reward their customers, who give them money, and their employees, who deliver the products, services, or information. If the corporation become successful over a long period of time the original entrepreneurs are apt to leave and no longer be in charge. Instead the corporation may be taken over by “professional” managers. Some of these new managers may not share the idealism of the original entrepreneurs. Instead, they may be primarily concerned about their own welfare.

Some of these new managers decided to ship the production facilities overseas to low-wage countries. Some of them decided to bring in low-wage foreign workers on the absurd notion that they cannot find a sufficient number of skilled domestic workers. These actions caused many of the original workers to lose their jobs or have to take a reduction in their wages. At the same time, some of these new managers are receiving massive salaries and bonuses. As a matter of fact, large employers in the United States have the greatest disparity between the top salaries and the bottom salaries than in any other country.

Onerous Government Regulations – Another benefit received by CRAPE, in this case certain large corporations, is the multitude of onerous government regulations. Large corporations can afford to abide by these regulations. However, small business firms are prevented from forming or growing due to the damaging impact of these regulations. Small business firms are the biggest source of employment for ordinary people. So when these regulations destroy small business firms the result is increased unemployment for the common people.

Certain large corporations want to destroy small business firms because of their potential competition. Many large corporations become locked into rigid and noncompetitive business practices. In comparison many small business firms are nimble and willing to adapt to changing conditions.

The upshot is that certain large corporations often welcome these onerous government regulations because they can reduce possible competition from small business firms. It should be noted that large corporations often have a direct influence on what new government regulations are created. You see, bureaucrats often consult with large corporations when planning new regulations.

Conclusion – I’m just getting warmed up in posting why our country has fallen on hard times. I believe CRAPE may use many ways to control or influence things to benefit themselves and harm ordinary people.

So what can you do to help yourself? For this first post I am proposing that you visit my website and learn how to reduce your living expenses per below:

What has happened to America?

I haven’t been updating my blog lately because I ran out of useful things to say. But now I have decided to resume blogging every Friday to explain what has happened to America. I will attempt to explain why things are in such a mess for our country and the majority of its people. Plus, I will do my best to help you survive the hard times we are experiencing.

These blogs will be based on my personal opinions and insights, my interpretations of common sense and human nature, and the opinions of various people who have achieved success by not following conventional wisdom.

If I believe that something I say is a fact, then I will provide a link to an authoritative source. If I am discussing the personal opinions of other people, then I will provide a link to the site that contains these opinions.

As far as placing blame for the awful things that have happened to out country and most of its people, I  assume that The Powers That Be (TPTB) are allowing or controlling most of these events. But as to who the “powers behind the throne” might be, I do not know.

You should assume that I cannot prove anything that I am stating in these blog posts, unless I provide a link to the source of that information.

Also, if you take any actions based on the information in my blog posts you must assume sole responsibility for any losses or other mishaps you encounter.

Here is a tentative outline of the subjects for my future blog posts:

  • Why there is such a large and growing division between the rich and the poor.
  • Why most retired people can’t live on just their Social Security benefits.
  • Why most of the good paying factory jobs have disappeared from our country.
  • Why most families can’t live on the earnings from just one job anymore.
  • Why the stock market is so high when the economy is in such a bad shape.
  • Why we have so many pointless wars that we never seem to win.
  • Why the economic statistics issued by the government often fail to reflect reality.
  • Why the Middle Eastern terrorists are so mad at us.
  • Why the Federal Reserve is creating our money when the Constitution says that Congress is in charge of creating our money.
  • Why un-backed paper notes have become our form of money when this fraudulent form of money was so vigorously condemned in the Federalist Papers and was denied to the states in the Constitution.
  • Why the government and the Federal Reserve System want to control our economy, instead of allowing the free market to work its miracles, even though the central control of an economy has never worked for large advanced societies.
  • Why the government allows the large “Too Big To Fail” banks (that almost brought the country to ruin during the 2007-08 global financial crisis) to continue with their insane activities and thereby place the country in an even more dangerous situation.

At the end of every post I will try to show some easy ways for you to make money or provide some part of your survival needs. This should help you to overcome some of the nonsense that TPTB are doing to harm you.

Why you may need to make money

In the preceding posts, I have shown you how to gain new powers and tackle new activities. The new posts to this blog will show you various ways of making money. This introductory blog will explain why some people in the US cannot find a good paying job, and therefore may need to make money on their own.

Why some people can’t find a good job

It almost seems like the world has turned against the ordinary people in the US. I remember the good old days shortly after the end of World War II. It only took one person to earn enough to support a family. Then things started to change. Eventually both parents had to work to support the family. Then things got even worse as people were being laid off in droves. There are several reasons why this happened, as shown below:

  • The US government opted for free trade, instead of fair trade
  • Many of the good paying manufacturing jobs in the US were sent offshore
  • US stores started importing cheap foreign goods made by cheap foreign labor
  • Then, many of the good paying white-collar jobs in the US were sent offshore
  • Many big US companies started using the H-1B program to import foreign workers in place of US workers
  • Automation is being used more and more in US companies to reduce the number of workers needed

There are three forces causing these developments:

  1. Globalization by transnational business firms
  2. Big business influence over the US government
  3. Rapid changes in technology (perhaps without adequate concern for the future)

I don’t want to go into all the gory details that caused these changes. For one thing, the details are probably not available to ordinary people. (National security, you know.) For another thing, it might be dangerous to name names. So, let’s just be satisfied that things have changed. Continuing on…

Q: What can ordinary people in the US, and perhaps even other countries, do to overcome this problem?

A: They can start using whatever opportunities are available to start making money on their own – that’s what!

My future posts

I will start making weekly postings to this blog to explain how ordinary people can start making money on their own. At some point, I may have to revert to making only semi-monthly postings. We will just have to see how much information I can develop.

Readers of this blog are welcome to offer their suggestions about possible ideas to be discussed.

 

 

The Problem Keeping You From Success

My goal with this blog has been to help people solve this problem. The problem is that you may not be willing to make the changes that will help improve your life. Part of this problem is the matter of beliefs. You may not believe in my revelations. You may not acknowledge to yourself that limiting beliefs in your subconscious mind are keeping you from having a better life. You may not be willing to implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. You may not believe that you are entitled to a better life.

I had all of these same obstacles to success. I was only able to overcome them out of desperation to improve my life in retirement. So if you can’t overcome these obstacles, I understand. No one can force you to make the needed changes. It is all up to you.

I have attacked this problem from many sides in prior posts to this blog. I want this post to be my final attack on the problem. Then I will have occasional posts on current economic problems and how to reduce their impact on your life.

By reading about the powers of the subconscious mind, my magical revelations from the universe, and the struggles to improve my life, you may be encouraged to try improving your own life. But then again, maybe not.

In any case, I don’t see any point in continuing to rehash the same concepts repeatedly. So this will be my final post on this subject.

How the subconscious mind guides your life

The subconscious mind is that hidden portion of your consciousness that supports and guides your daily activities. It has to remain unseen, otherwise its tremendous power and massive activities would overwhelm your conscious mind.

The subconscious mind interprets your surroundings and beliefs, and thereby creates the reality that you experience in day-to-day living. For example, when you open your eyes in the morning, you can observe your surroundings with no apparent effort on your part. However, your subconscious mind performs a tremendous effort to accomplish this feat.

Imagine, if you can, that you are sitting in a dark room and are holding two bundles of electrical wires. These wires are the optic nerves that carry information from the optic cells at the back of your eyeballs. Using the electrical signals from your optic nerves (and the information stored in the vast memory of your subconscious mind), you must create the three-dimensional image of your surroundings that your conscious mind receives. You must also identify the objects contained in this image. Can you imagine yourself doing this? Probably not. However, this incredible miracle of seeing is just one of the many tasks that your subconscious mind must carry out every split second of every day.

Now let’s look at an even more important task that your subconscious mind must perform. It uses the assumptions, beliefs, expectations, experiences, habits, rules of thumb, and wisdom stored in its memory to determine how to perform your day-to-day activities. In addition, it must determine what activities you are capable of performing. Thus, when you are trying to accomplish something new, you may have feelings of fear or doubt about this new activity. These feelings are coming from your subconscious mind. You may have had some limiting beliefs stored away in your subconscious mind from childhood. These beliefs may make it difficult for you to attempt new activities.

On the other hand, if your subconscious mind is controlled by empowering beliefs, you may have feelings of confidence and courage when you attempt a new activity. These empowering beliefs may have developed during a supportive childhood or may have resulted from a series of your achievements earlier in life. It is also possible to directly implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind using affirmations, physical actions, or visualizations.

These empowering beliefs, and the skills and experiences you develop from completing new activities, allow you to enjoy a life of success. You may even be able to live the life of your dreams. It all depends on the choices you make and the actions you take.

Deciding what you want from life

Speaking of choices, one of the most important decisions is what to do with your life. This assumes of course that you want to take charge of your life and live life to the fullest. This decision can be difficult if you have too many limiting beliefs and lack useful skills and experiences. However, you can always overcome limiting beliefs and thereby open the door to developing new skills and experiences.

This is what I accomplished after retiring from a lackluster career in public accounting. However, I wouldn’t have been able to do this without the magical revelations that I received from the universe. These revelations showed me the way to take charge of my life and get the tough jobs done. I was able to make this change despite my lack of ambition and courage at that time.

My revelations from the universe

These revelations may shock you. They certainly shocked me when I first received them. But please don’t judge them until you read the topic that follows below them.

My magical revelations:

  • You are personally responsible for the successes and failures that you experience in life. You have the ability to improve things by taking charge of your life and assuming responsibility for your mistakes and problems.
  • Your subconscious mind uses the controlling beliefs that are hidden away inside it to help interpret your apparent situation in life and the resulting possibilities.
  • Beliefs are not the same as reality. The controlling beliefs in your subconscious mind may not reflect your actual situation in life and the resulting possibilities.
  • When limiting beliefs control your subconscious mind, you are discouraged from seeking and achieving success in life.
  • When empowering beliefs control your subconscious mind, you are encouraged to seek out challenges and achieve success in life.
  • You can change your beliefs to reflect your actual situation in life or your desires for a better life. Thus, you can use empowering beliefs to reduce the adverse effects of any limiting beliefs that are present in your subconscious mind.

I developed certain insights after discovering how my subconscious mind could help solve some of my problems. However, this happened before I received the preceding revelations. Thus, I did not make the most use out of this discovery.

Here are my insights:

  • Your subconscious mind contains a vast storehouse of knowledge and wisdom.
  • Your subconscious mind, properly trained, can help you solve problems, enhance creative work, and make difficult decisions.
  • Your subconscious mind has to be convinced you’re serious before it will help you.

I have accumulated practical knowledge from my life experiences and the self-help books I studied. This practical knowledge has helped me put my revelations and insights into action.

Here is my practical knowledge:

  • You may acquire limiting beliefs during your childhood and early adulthood. These beliefs result from the admonitions received from your parents and other people. These warnings were meant to protect you from harm.
  • Since your beliefs are hidden away inside your subconscious mind, you may not be aware of those limiting beliefs that can have an adverse effect on your life.
  • Various techniques are available to instill new beliefs into your subconscious mind. These include affirmations, physical actions, and visualizations.
  • After you overcome any limiting beliefs and/or other obstacles preventing you from starting or finishing a new or difficult project, you then must take constructive actions to complete the project.

Note: These constructive actions may include gathering any required information, making step-by-step plans, starting work on your goal, monitoring your results, correcting any problems, and reviewing the final results.

All of the above concepts, methods, and procedures are explained in my Magic Success Secrets ebook.

The problems with my revelations

The above revelations turned my life around after I finally accepted them and put them into practice. To test them out, I began to implant empowering beliefs into my subconscious mind using affirmations and visualizations. Then I began to strive for my goals. The more I was able to achieve the more I sought to increase my empowering beliefs. But first, I had to overcome the following problem.

It was difficult for me to understand and accept these revelations when I received them. These ideas seemed rather strange and somewhat threatening. Besides, who was I to receive revelations from the universe? I was a nobody, a failure. I was doomed to suffer through a meaningless retirement after my lackluster career had ended. At least, that’s what I thought to myself.

In fact, the only reason that I finally began to consider using these revelations was that they answered all my questions about the meaning of life and reality. They told me why I was such a failure. They told me why some people can be such a success.

Even then, I had to overcome one big problem. I didn’t want to change my beliefs. After all, without my beliefs I would not know what to do or what to think. My beliefs have guided me all my life.

Eventually I realized that my current beliefs haven’t helped me all that much. My results in the later years of my life had been nothing to brag about. Moreover, since my life was already at a low ebb, I didn’t have much to lose. So I decided to test these revelations.

Taking action and achieving my goals

I used affirmations and revelations to implant a few empowering beliefs into my subconscious mind. This helped me in pursuing my goals. But the big change happened one morning when I woke up and received a burst of energy from out of nowhere. This got me going and encouraged me to keep using affirmations and visualizations to increase my personal powers. After a certain point, I was able to keep working on my goals until I completed them.

My first two goals for retirement were to finish my website and publish my ebook. These goals were meant to develop my writing abilities and help other people have a better life. Now that I have completed these goals, my next challenge is to start an online business and start making some money for myself. You see, I inherited some money from my parents and lost it all. Now I want to learn to be responsible with money and start enjoying the finer things in life. So I need a fresh pot of gold to accomplish this.

Here’s hoping the readers of this blog can learn from my mistakes and successes. Then they can improve their own lives.

Keep Your Job by Becoming Indispensable

During these hard times, many people are worried about losing their jobs. The way to solve this problem is to become indispensable to your employer or supervisor. (Then they will have to worry about their own survival and they dare not fire you.) This posting shows you how to accomplish this feat.

Why you may need to make changes

If you want to become indispensable to your employer or supervisor, you may have to change some of your attitudes and habits. Many people resist making changes but in these times making needed changes is a survival tool.

You want your employer or supervisor to know that you are willing to make changes that will help the company survive these hard times. You want to become known as a company man or woman.

What changes are needed?

The best way to find out what changes you need to make is to ask your employer or supervisor. Here are some possible questions:

  • How can you become more valuable to them?
  • Do you need any training to improve your abilities?
  • What problems do they have that you can help solve?
  • Which of your attitudes and habits do they admire the most?
  • Which of your attitudes and habits do they admire the least?

After you have the answers to the above questions, you will know what changes you need to make to become indispensable.

How to make the needed changes

You developed your attitudes and habits over the years. You accepted certain beliefs, the beliefs determined your attitudes, your attitudes guided your actions, and repeated actions became habits. These beliefs, attitudes, and habits all reside in your subconscious mind. In order to change them you need to develop new beliefs. In order to accelerate this normal process these new beliefs should be empowering beliefs.

These empowering beliefs will override your existing beliefs, attitudes, and habits. They will change your attitudes and guide your actions. Eventually you will develop new habits. However, since these empowering beliefs will now guide your actions, the old habits will be ignored.

Using visualizations

You can implant new beliefs into your subconscious mind using visualizations. A visualization is a guided daydream. You decide what is to happen and then you see it played out inside your mind. As this daydream unfolds, allow yourself to feel the excitement and pleasure of your new capability. The repetition of this visualization, along with your intense feelings, helps condition your subconscious mind to accept this new reality.

You first need to create a scene to use for the visualization. This scene should show you using your new capability to attain some desirable achievement. The more details and intense feelings you can think of the better. You probably should write the scene down on a piece of paper so you can study and remember it.

Example scene showing you as assertive:

You are discussing a business problem with your co-workers. There is one person who always tries to hog the conversation and impose his opinions on everyone else. As he drones on incessantly, you interrupt him to calmly express your own opinions. He disagrees with you, but you back up your assertions with indisputable facts. He slowly gives in. Most of your co-workers smile at you to show their appreciation.

Doing the visualization:

Close your eyes and go into the visualization.See the actions, feel the emotions. Let yourself laugh or smile if appropriate.

Continue with this visualization for several minutes.

Repeat this visualization three times a day for two weeks. Then use it once a day until the idea of having this new capability feels normal.

Conclusion

You can change your attitude about life by implanting empowering beliefs using visualizations. Try it. You might like the results.

Ways to Empower Your Life

You may have noticed the growing income disparity between the super rich, the rich, and the middle class in the United States. Also, it has become apparent that getting a college education is no longer a guarantee of earning a good living. It seems the usual aids to advancement no longer exist for ordinary people. So you may wonder what you can do to improve your life. This posting provides one answer.

The key factors to success

I believe there are two kinds of factors that determine a person’s ability to be successful in life. These are key factors and common factors.

Most of the key factors (summarized below) were contained in the magical revelations I received from the universe. I developed the other key factors while discovering how to use my subconscious mind to solve problems. These key factors allow an ordinary person to change their outlook on life and develop the personal powers needed to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.

The common factors are the ones described in most success and self-help books, courses, and seminars. These common factors are such things as ambition, hard work, mastermind groups, persistence, setting meaningful goals, and so on. These common factors can be very useful in improving your life. However, I believe you first need to apply the key factors to get the most benefit from these common factors.

Here are the key factors:

  • The beliefs hidden away in your subconscious mind greatly influence your results in life.
  • These beliefs may not reflect your current abilities or true desires.
  • Empowering beliefs encourage you to become successful.
  • Limiting beliefs discourage you from becoming successful.
  • You can overcome the harmful effect of limiting beliefs by implanting empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind.
  • You are personally responsible for your own success or failure in life. Don’t let other people or adverse circumstances defeat you. Take charge of your own life.
  • You can use your subconscious mind to solve problems, make decisions, and improve your work.
  • You can use your subconscious mind to give you special powers.
  • Your subconscious mind, properly trained, can become your best friend.

How people can become empowered

I believe that people become empowered by experiencing special circumstances that will lead them to seek out and achieve meaningful challenges or goals. Here is my list of special circumstances:

  • They may have been raised by a rich family that provided them with an exclusive education, contacts with people in similar circumstances, and a strong feeling of entitlement.
  • They may have been raised in a supportive family that gave them ambition and self-confidence.
  • They may have been placed in a position of power, which forced them to overcome various challenges.
  • They may have survived a life-threatening situation, which made them realize their innate powers.
  • At some time in their lives, they may have had a driving ambition to achieve a difficult goal.
  • At some point in their lives, they may have been encouraged by a friend, colleague, or mentor to begin improving their life.

I believe that all of the above circumstances and the subsequent successes can instill empowering beliefs into a person’s subconscious mind. I also believe that successful people may not be aware of these empowering beliefs hidden away in their subconscious minds.

Finally, I believe that the direct method of implanting empowering beliefs into the subconscious mind may be the best way for ordinary people to improve their lives.

How I empowered my life

When I was approaching retirement age, I was worried about my future. I had spent most of my adult life stuck in a lackluster career in public accounting. I had gradually lost most of my ambition, energy, and self-confidence. Most people would say that I was just lazy. I recall one Christmas gift from the office when they gave me an alarm clock. It was a well-deserved gift because I often was late coming in to work.

Toward the end of my career, I became convinced that the US would be facing hard times because of the growing public debt. This belief led me to start work on a website to help people during the hard times I expected. However, I kept running into roadblocks and going around in circles. It appeared that I lacked the energy and writing skills needed to complete this project.

Because of receiving two previous gifts, I asked the universe for help. It took about a year for the revelations to arrive and for me to understand them. However, even after receiving these magical revelations, I failed to put them into action. It seemed I was doomed to live out a dreary and unproductive retirement. Then I received a third gift from the universe – a surge of energy that came to me one morning. This led me to redouble my work on the website, and to start testing and using the insights from the magical revelations.

I created a visualization to give myself a burst of energy whenever I needed it. Also, I implanted empowering beliefs into my subconscious mind. These methods turned my life around and allowed me to complete my website. Later on, I was able to write several self-help ebooks. It was thrilling to experience my new abilities.

So I ask you, if a person as lazy and pitiful as I was could improve his life, could you do the same? I believe you could. However, you would have to have an open mind and a strong desire to improve your life. Of course, I can’t offer any guarantees of success. All I can offer are the insights and methods I developed while training and empowering my subconscious mind.

Taking the next steps

As a first step, you can decide to try empowering your own life. As the next step, you might want to try starting a sideline business. For further information about taking these steps, you can study the resources below:

  • Review the other postings to this blog and read those articles that appeal to you.
  • Review the contents of my website and read those subjects that interest you. Go to the above My Website page.
  • Review the descriptions of my low-cost ebooks and purchase any that might help you. Go to the above My Kindle Books page.

Conclusion

During these hard times, I believe that you will have to rely mostly on yourself, your family, your neighbors, and your friends. You may want to form a support group with people  you can trust in emergencies.

This posting can help you take the required actions. However, there is no guarantee that my information will lead to success. You have to accept responsibility for your own success or failure in life.

Opportunities for a Quick Fix

Many people want a quick fix for their problems or lack of success. However, a quick fix can prove to be elusive or even dangerous. The desire for instant gratification leads many people to disaster. They become ready victims for con artists and other problems.

This posting describes those limited areas that can have a quick fix. In addition, it shows how to start enjoying your life before you achieve the level of success that you want.

Areas available for a quick fix

Let us assume that you want to start your own small business to achieve financial success. There are certain ways that you can speed up this process and overcome common obstacles. These specific areas can have a quick fix. However, you must be careful and understands the limitations of the methods used to achieve a quick fix. Following are some of these methods:

Using bootstrap methods – You usually need at least a small amount of money or other resources to start a small business. However, you can use various bootstrap methods to minimize or eliminate the amount of money or other resources needed. Here are some examples:

  • Don’t pay someone else to perform a task. Learn how to do the work yourself.
  • Don’t purchase new equipment needed for a job. Instead, borrow or rent the equipment.
  • When first starting out, don’t purchase the materials needed for a job. Instead, have the customer purchase the materials.

Using empowering beliefs – A common obstacle to achieving success is the presence of limiting beliefs in your subconscious mind. These limiting beliefs can keep you from trying to start your own small business. Examples of limiting beliefs are the warnings you receive when you are growing up:

  • Don’t try to be something that you’re not
  • Don’t rock the boat
  • You will never amount to much

You can overcome these limiting beliefs by implanting empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. Here are some examples of empowering beliefs:

  • I control my own destiny
  • I am ambitious and hard working
  • I am successful at whatever I do

These empowering beliefs allow you to take action to improve your life.

Start enjoying your life immediately

If you are unhappy with your present situation in life, you can develop the habit of enjoying life just as you are. You see, you can decide every day whether you are going to be happy or unhappy. As you keep making the choice of enjoying your life just as you are, this decision becomes a habit.

As part of this decision, find ways to enjoy those things that you already have. You can go on walks, talk to your friends and family, help your children learn about life, and remember those good times you have experienced.

Developing your abilities and resources

After you have eliminated obstacles to taking action, you can start enhancing your abilities and resources. Perhaps you should discover your natural talents and true desires. Then you can choose goals to exploit these talents and achieve these desires. This will allow you to enjoy the journey and not just the destination.

Then you won’t need a quick fix to attain the desired destination. The journey itself becomes part of achieving a better life.

Setting incremental goals

Depending on what kind of success you want to attain, the best method is to start with easily attainable goals. As you achieve these early goals and thereby enhance your abilities and resources, you can try for more empowering goals. Each new success builds on the previous successes.

Eventually, you may be able to attain the level of success that you desire. On the other hand, you may choose to stay at a certain level of success and enjoy your life as it is.

Conclusion

You don’t need to be in a hurry to get what you want out of life. Enjoy what you already have. Focus on your natural talents and true desires. Most important, avoid any con artist who promises you the moon.

As always, you can use my information resources to help you achieve success.

How to Achieve Success

If you want to achieve success in life, this post may help you. My definition of success is setting and attaining meaningful goals. By meaningful goals, I mean activities and events that benefit you and other people.

Following are common obstacles to success and ways to overcome them.

Lack of desire for improvement

When you were a child, it was common for your parents and other adults to warn you about possible dangers. These repeated warnings may still reside within your subconscious mind as limiting beliefs. These limiting (false) beliefs may prevent you from taking action to improve your life. They may even prevent you from wanting to improve your life.

To overcome this obstacle, you may need to implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. For example, you need to believe that you are entitled to a better life and that you are capable of achieving it.

Lack of meaningful goals

The next obstacle is not knowing what to do with your life. You may not enjoy your present circumstances. However, you may not know what alternatives are available. Perhaps you should discover your natural talents and true desires. Then you can use goals to create a future that uses your natural talents and satisfies your true desires.

If we encounter the hard times that I am expecting, many people will need inexpensive ways to survive. Perhaps you could supply some of these needs. The basic needs are clothing, food, housing, employment, medical care, entertainment, and so on.

Lack of research and planning

After choosing a suitable and attainable goal, you may want to research the best ways to achieve this goal. You need to find out what abilities and resources are needed. You need to find out the best way to accomplish the goal.

Then you can plan how to acquire these abilities and resources. In addition, you can plan the action steps needed to accomplish the goal.

Lack of abilities and resources

In this step, you should acquire any needed abilities and/or resources. (Note: When setting your first few goals, they should require only those abilities and resources that you already have or can easily obtain.)

You acquire abilities by first getting any needed information. Then you use trial and error to accomplish various tasks.

You acquire any needed cash or other resources by first eliminating any unnecessary personal expenses. Then you could use various bootstrap methods to acquire resources. You also could get a loan, get a silent partner, or do some jobs on the side to raise money.

Lack of decisive actions

At this stage, you are ready to use decisive actions to achieve your goals. You already should have planned the needed action steps. Now you should follow your plan and take the needed actions, step-by-step. You may require an action trigger on occasion to keep working. You might want to use time-saving tips. In addition, you should monitor the results you are achieving toward your goal

Failure to face and overcome problems

When striving toward a worthwhile goal, you are likely to encounter problems. Most problems won’t go away by themselves. You should face any problems, accept personal responsibility for your success or failure, and do whatever it takes to solve the problems.

You may have to do some additional research to find out how other people have solved the same type of problems.

Not achieving the desired results

After you have accomplished your goal, you should verify that the results would help you to a better life. Most goals have two desirable results. First, they should increase your abilities and resources. Second, they should improve the quality of your life.

If your goal has not given you the desired results, you have two possibilities. One option is to go back and do what is needed to give you the desired results. The other option is to accept the results. However, you then should use these inadequate results to plan better goals in the future.

Conclusion

I hope this brief roadmap will help you achieve the kind of success you want. As always, you can study the other information resources that I provide.
