How to survive life itself - and succeed into enormous wealth meanwhile...

You can actually survive life and get incredibly wealthy at the same time.

(Recession-- what recession? We don't need no stinkin' recession...)

Of course, you won't figure this out by watching the news or attending any number of schools.

Because these are designed to serve the majority. They are designed to foster tabloid fascination ("news") and lockstep conformity ("schools"). Their end result is a populace which tends to follow the same trends and not really question anything they are told, but just react appropriately.

Your own purpose for being here runs counter to those two groups.

Because you and your purpose are unique, individual.

And what you are doing here is special - you are here not just to "make a living" or "support a family" or "live to reach retirement".

Practically, you are here to save this universe. Really. Because every single person here is depended on by the Universe to provide diversity and independence of thought. And the universe would quickly just run down and quit if it weren't for your particular input.

It's called the law of entropy. And it's just Nature's way of taking out the trash and then picking it up from the sidewalk. All the way things are done.

But growing things, building things, making stuff bigger, better, more exciting - that's what you are here for and what you are supposed to be doing.

You weren't created, weren't born, weren't infused with Life - just so you could sit in front of the TV with you chosen partner and then just "watch."

Whatever you're here for, only you really know. No one else can tell you what you're here for - they can only tell you about ways they've used to find their own. And these ways may or may not work for you.

But the trick is that you have to try.

A few hints here:
  1. Try to constantly build the attitude of calm, cheerful expectancy. This will bring you more good things into your life - almost more than you can imagine.
  2. Give open-handedly and don't expect anything in return. This will help all these good things coming to you surprise you even more. Especially works for charities.
  3. Worried about your job? Don't be. Work positively on how you can give the most to your company and improve its ability to expand in its current economic climate. Work for expansion of others. Don't have a job? Find a company you can help - do the research to get a plan for their expansion, then offer that plan to them along with your services. (See the chapter on this in "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. He wrote it for people coming out of the Depression - it works!
