Your PERSONAL STRATEGY in 2015

20 Jan 2015

According to statistics from Bloomberg, currently 48% (50% by 2016) of the world's wealth is controlled by 1% of the population.

Talk was of 85 individuals with the equivalent wealth of some 3.5 billion people!

The Economical climate worldwide is constantly reported as problematic. It is not surprising. The advent of computers has made numerous job opportunities redundant, yet the population is ever larger with more mouths to feed. (Worth remembering when planning a family.)

We currently rely on governments and financial institutions to solve the problems, however, they are ill-placed to work miracles with these very real numbers.

IF WE ARE TO HAVE A GOOD SHOT AT IT WE BEST YANK OUR OWN, INDIVIDUAL SOCKS UP A BIT.

But some of us are out there simply trying to survive and that is more real than any numbers on a page.
This can be a hamster-in-the-wheel syndrome that sees you never getting any further.

So how then?
One could launch into an essay 1000 pages long here because this is a very vast subject.

A few things are a given such as education and anti-corruption, but other things are not that obvious: such as knowledge really is power, talk is cheap and action is what separates the birds from the worms; fail forward fast, etc.

The internet, though, is a wealth of how-to information.

TOP TIP: Kick out any debilitating emotion. It can be much easier if we just look at it logically. Detach!! That way, if you try out something new, you won't be completely torn apart if it doesn't work. You will keep the lesson at least.
The average millionaire has gone bankrupt at least twice simply because they tried and learned from their mistakes.
if you are really down about it all, break the actions up and just be prepared to take the next easiest step - for example, ....first: open the computer....next step: turn it on....easy right....keep going.......one simple step at a time.

DO HAVE A PLAN! Devise a straight forward personal strategy, such as:

- I am here, I need to be there. I might not know how to get there, but I am going to find out!
- My personal principles are....(x,y,z). I will ACT on these, ethically, without causing harm and destruction (a proven ill-placed strategy which emphasises that the person has no other tools in their toolbox). Besides, it should be enjoyable and fun.
- Get some other tools in your toolbox if the ones you have already are not working.
- Remember to check constantly to see if it is working.

Good wishes to you in 2015 and may all the forces be with you.
