Political Power Struggle, Corruption, and Unemployment

Political Power Struggle, Corruption, and Unemployment 

What is the connection?

This will shock you!!

Who will you choose to be the next President of the United States of America?

Does it really matter?

Will one person with mutually aligned values and principles really make a difference among a system where incentives rule the divide?

Can one person change a system that has been tweaked over the decades to aid politicians to meet their own greedy ends?

Did you see the 60 Minutes segment where law makers are allowed to use private information to trade stock options to make money before the information goes public?

Did you know that this behavior is the same behavior that is getting high profile traders and CEOs put in jail – Only the law makers are legally allowed to make money on this information before it goes public!!

  • Nancy Pelosi made a fortune with Visa options based on private information – Makes you think!!!

Did you know that most Politicians make less than 200k a year and the majority leave office multi-millionaires?

How does that happen?

Why did the whole Republican Party vote against every single proposal of our Democratic President?

Is it Conformity?

Is it Power?

Was it because ALL the proposals were no good?

What about the correlation between the OCCUPY movement and Unemployment?

Unemployment numbers are going down – Is it because people are getting jobs or is it from something else?

Did you know – If people are not receiving unemployment benefits then they are not considered unemployed…

If unemployment benefits are denied to qualified unemployed, then the unemployment number goes down, government looks successful, and the economy starts to get better – for investors.

Is this progress?

People that get laid off in exchange for offshoring are suffering to pay their bills and need assistance during transition.

I propose that there is a 9% known Unemployment + a 20% unknown Unemployment + a 20% Underemployment which = 50% + Americans that are NOT reaching their Potential.

The question I pose is – Why?

That question needs to be solved with a change of perspective and creative innovation that leads to positive change.

Holiday Cheer

Peace, Love, and Harmony…

The holiday season is where we show each other love and appreciation through celebration and holiday cheer.

Some express these feelings through gift giving and others express these feelings by being in service to others.

There are many gifts we could give and they all begin with our inner-self.

If we give, speak, and think from a place of goodness then our gifts are pure.

People find fault in others, but this is a projection of the self, and the externalization is not healing the existing problem.

Embrace the spirit of goodness and happiness of the season.

Americans are the most charitable people in the world and there is a reason for this fact.

Give onto others as you would want given onto yourself.

I have been a very charitable person over the course of my life and have given of myself in a variety of ways.

The returns have been extremely fulfilling and I encourage you to give.

Giving is not about money, but rather, about caring, love, respect, understanding, gratitude, sharing, honesty, and humility.

Treat others the same as you would treat yourself and if this is not positive then please take care of yourself first.

In order to have fulfilling relationships and quality in your life, you have to begin with self-love.

Loving yourself is an important first step that needs to be taken before loving others can begin.

The holidays are for reflection over the past year and developing an understanding around how the year in review went.

What are your accomplishments?

What would you have done differently?

How will you improve moving forward?

The holidays are for living in the moment and embracing the holiday spirit.

Do you have family and friends that care about you?

Do you have anyone that you strongly care about? 

How will you share yourself with those you care about during this holiday season?

The holidays are for celebration and happiness.

Materialistic items fill the moment with excitement and appreciation, but these traditional gifts do not bring long term happiness. 

I wish that everyone has the ability to share the gifts that everyone would want in their life, but unfortunately, this cannot always be accomplished for everyone at every time. 

The alternative is long term happiness derived from the moments that are shared with those around you.

Take pictures, physically or mentally, and retain these memories of your life that will fill you with joy for eternity. 

I personally, have been alone on Christmas with a small meal, a few text messages saying Merry Christmas, and a football game. 

Those were learning times that I am grateful for and appreciated because I learned a lot about myself and others.

Today, I share my days with the six most important people in the world and I enjoy every minute of making these moments special and memorable for them. 

I learned from my father, who passed a few years ago, that you need to live life to make memories because when you get old, you have nothing left but your memories.

I wish everyone a memory filled holiday season that is full of positive cheer and loving expression for everyone you care about. 

God bless you, your family, and everyone you encounter in your life.

Transparency

Assumptions and cognitive short-cuts are the way of the world today because there is too much information to handle for anyone.

Brains are growing faster than ever, but information is developing at a much greater rate.

The trick to dealing with information overload is to create a shortcut to understanding external stimulation which usually leads to the wrong answer.

This technique is useful for us when dealing with smaller issues such as when watching TV and buying food, but to be accurate when decision making is important.

Assumptions are self-serving and can damage the understanding of the true processes of the world.

Transparency is a discipline that everyone should honor to help others make correct decisions quickly without coming to false conclusions.

Have you ever been judged by a stranger and feel totally offended because they were completely wrong? 

False conclusions damage communication and transfer negativity across the community by way of complete misunderstanding.

Being completely transparent is one way to reduce false assumptions because this technique enables people to present their true self and share their true identity with the world.

This removes the barriers of protection that others hold because they do not trust. Transparency builds trust and is important for clear communication and relationship building. 

People believe they can understand a person by the way they look, the clothes they wear, the behaviors they use, and the way they speak.

These signals are absolute ways to understand someone and it takes a trained psychologist to get the interpretation correct, but there are many variables that are left out of the equation:

Family background, education, interests, life experiences, preferences, motivation, socio-economic status, learning style, strengths, and weaknesses.

These are only a few of the answered questions when formulating decisions based on assumptions.

Transparency removes the blinders so others can get to know you and freeing yourself from living the world in the dark is gratifying.

The freedom to express who you are freely builds confidence and knowing that you are accepted regardless of your weaknesses is eye-opening.

Transparency helps others become transparent with you and relaxes others because you are sharing your truth.

The truth is a scary concept for a lot of people, but living a lie that you believe, is a nightmare.
