Hello dear friends,
Are you watching the Occupy movement with as much fascination as I am? For me, it’s a thrill to see the world awakening. The world is finally emerging from a stupor induced by voluntary enslavement to television, day jobs, prescription drugs, conventional morality, and every other form of numbness.
And I hope that everyone understands what this movement means. This movement is NOT about creating “more jobs” that people will hate and complain about endlessly to their friends and family.
The days of working for somebody else are nearly over …
Think about it … how can there ever be equality and abundance for all while people are signing away all their freedom in order to get a job where they will work a ridiculous amount of hours for a ridiculously small sum of money, following rules and restrictions that make no sense?
It is time for everyone on this planet to begin taking full responsibility for the life they have created for themselves. And that means hierarchy and bureaucracy must be abolished. Makes sense, yes?
Self-employment is the way of the future. Will people still work together? Of course. But as partners. Not as master and slave. And what we will discover that as the layers of complexity and bureaucracy are lifted, there IS more abundance for everyone.
We are moving toward a much simpler way of living. Where people work a lot less, and enjoy life a lot more. Where people are more connected to themselves and to the people around them.
But we will still need exchange, and that is where sales come in. For most people, they were able to avoid this for most of their lives (I certainly avoided it for most of my life). You know the routine: Get hired by a big employer, and someone else does the sales for you. Someone else brings in the money and pays you a salary.
You’ve seen the consequences of that. You lose your power. You lose your freedom. You always have to answer to somebody else. Is that what you really want?
One of the wonderful things I’ve discovered about self-employment is how empowering and liberating it feels to be making my own sales. I feel much more connected to the value that I’m giving and receiving. I love the equality of coach and client, both making their own free choices. I set my own work hours, and at the end of the day I must be fully responsible for the results. There is nobody to blame now. It’s all on me.
Those of you who are still judging and avoiding sales, it’s time to find a new perspective on this. If you want freedom from everything that is wrong with the world today, you must BE THE CHANGE. If you don’t like how “they” are running the world, you must take responsibility for finding a new way to pay your bills and live the life you want to live. And that means letting go of the hundreds of fears that stand in the way of you ASKING other people, straight up, to give you value for value.
It means you need a LOT more clarity about the value you bring to this world, because only if you have that clarity, are you going to be able to make sales and bring in the income to meet your needs. If you don’t want “them” to run your world, YOU must take responsibility for running your world.
Make sense? Criticizing the system isn’t going to get anyone anywhere. BE THE CHANGE. Begin creating a new way in your own life. Then watch how the world changes with you.
This is such an exhilarating time to be alive :)
