Monday Musings - Personal Responsibility
Monday Musings – Personal Responsibility
Why are people so terrified about stepping up and taking personal responsibility? This may be contentious and may be triggering for some, but I think many are scared to do so.
Let’s take a look at taking personal responsibility for your wealth.
For a long time now we have been conditioned to believe that we are best leaving this to people who know something about money. To financial advisors, retirement planners, to the banks and financial institutions.
Well, I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but these are the last people you should be entrusting your wealth to.
Financial advisors and retirement planners are just there to make a commission. Sure, there may be some good eggs out there, but the vast majority are under pressure to make sales and to sell the packages that bring them the best return, not you.
The banks and financial institutions, well, where do I even begin? These are the people who so mismanaged their finances that they brought about a global economic collapse in 2008. That are constantly being fined for dodgy financial practices. That make themselves a fortune and pay you next to nothing. I could go on and on and on. But you get the point, right?
Let’s also not forget that whilst banks have been preaching doom and gloom about crypto, they have been quietly investing in it to make themselves even wealthier.
And as for governments, these are the people who are currently overseeing rampant global inflation due to quantitative easing, also known as printing currency out of thin air, also known as currency debasement.
And we are supposed to trust the above? Seriously???
We have been brainwashed into believing that these charlatans are better at looking after our wealth than we are. That we are incapable of taking personal responsibility for our wealth.
Let me tell you now, there is nobody better qualified to look after your wealth than you. Nobody.
But it requires you to step up and shoulder that responsibility. To go out there and educate yourself. To learn how the current financial system works and to learn what you need to do to step outside of it.
You can do it. Yes, it will take time. Yes, it will take effort. Yes, it will require a step outside of your comfort zone.
But let’s take a broader look at personal responsibility and where the lack of it has got us.
We have abdicated responsibility for our health to the pharmaceutical industries and to allopathic doctors who are often little better than big pharma drug pushers.
We have abdicated responsibility for our nutrition to supermarkets who sell sugar infested and GMO riddled crap with zero nutritional value.
We have abdicated responsibility for the education of our children to government run indoctrination camps that merely teach them how to regurgitate facts (that may or may not be true) to win the prize of a decent exam result so that they can go and be a good wage slave and not upset the system, but don’t teach any real-life skills (like financial management) or anything that might prompt them to think for themselves.
We have abdicated responsibility for our wealth to so-called financial advisors, banks and governments
And where has this got us?
Riddled with chronic dis-ease.
Dumbed down with little capacity for critical thought
It is time for everyone to step up and start taking responsibility for themselves, for their families and for their future.
You can start that journey to personal responsibility right here by learning the difference between currency and money and why it is so important.
