The Self Leader Secret
Producing and appreciating values will solve America’s problems
Why should a strong-arm government expect you to sacrifice your efforts, earnings and values to the non-producers and tricksters?
Enslavement to the social good is not the solution to America’s problems. We must each step-up to the plate, produce for the pay we receive, and quit believing the world owes us. Begin to ask what we can do to help a neighbor, co-worker, or a child. Quit asking for help instead find solutions. Using our natural state of being, which is to solve problems, will make this country stronger. Passage of yet another bill will not solve our problem. We must quit asking what the government can do for us.
What we do with our minds makes life better? Are we producing values with our minds? Are we continuously creating more man-made valuable products with our minds? Or do we want nature or government to automatically provide for us? We haven’t lived in nature for centuries and we have learned to produce and provide for our needs.
Since man no longer lives in nature we are no longer saddled with environmental conditions that dictate what we do. We can live inside and enjoy the great man-made home already created for us. We can also choose to create additional values for the benefit of self and others. We don’t need government to provide our needs, we are capable. Again, how are we using our minds?
The highest power in existence is the rational consciousness of individual beings. Do we accept and respect that, by thinking for ourselves, producing values for ourselves, and, by living life to the fullest and allowing others to do the same?
The highest value is the conscious, productive individual being, one who uses their mind and actions to add to the material, intellectual, physical, psychological, or aesthetic well-being of others. It is critical that we add more than we take because society cannot exist without this form of life. Influencing nature and creatively altering events to the benefit of all is creating value. What are we doing to create values like our forefathers did for us with our constitution? Have you read the constitution lately?
Productive beings should reap the rewards and happiness that they have earned. Those who are non-productive should not automatically receive. Fruits of our labor are the only way we can prosper and live happily. Pretending to be happy is not our natural state. Producing values, for self and others, is our natural state and is full of happiness.
There is only one valid authority, the authority of rational consciousness. This is an individual’s way to abiding happiness, individual competence and self-supporting prosperity.
Who else has the right, or can, determine for another how best to live or what we should produce for others? Only self can integrate reality with its unique situation, and, then choose how best to live by producing maximum values for self which will benefit society. No boss, friend, family member or higher authority can determine our individual situations. Only through honest self-examination and forward thinking can we all make this determination.
Since business is the extension of the conscious, productive individual, then it stands to reason that business can only flourish when the founder and employees are productive and conscious throughout their days. Anything or anyone who stands in the way of creativity or productivity is a drain on society.
No one should receive recognition for how an employee performs. It is up to the employee to perform, and, therefore, the employee is the only one who can honestly receive the rewards for their individual efforts. Somehow we have taken that reward from the producers and creators. Executives, owners, government take the credit for another’s labor. Those not working accept the benefits provided by others efforts, including taxes, to sustain their lives. Sustaining life is not adequate enough to create happiness. It is only enough to allow living in a rut, a boring, unhappy existence. Currently there are millions who are working to provide health insurance benefits for themselves and family members. If a health care bill passes, will they choose to quit working, too? What do we sacrifice for values?
Wake up Americans, before you sacrifice your health care, to the good of yourself. Understand a universal health care plan is only a quick-fix to a larger problem. A temporary solution which will bring everyone to the standard of living that, at present, only the unemployed and under-paid individuals must succumb to.
Is President Obama here to set all men free?
He may free the working-class Americans, who currently are slaves to those who may not understand where the benefit money comes from. In-fact, passing one of the four (4) ever-changing, thousands of pages long, health care bills may force retirement for those who are contemplating it but need health care benefits. With fewer producers, there may not be enough money to pay the government enslaved doctors and health professionals for their service.
Should we thank President Obama for this freedom he is so anxious to provide?
Perhaps we will have new words to a once great song. God Bless America, land of the free healthy, stand beside her and guide her to the land of poverty. You see without producers, there are no benefits for anyone. A sabbatical from work will be nice, as, others may soon realize how important it is to work for a living and benefits.
Could be the best thing for Americans as we realize how important it is to act on our own judgment and earn values through our own productivity. Once, again thank you President Obama, for setting us working-class slaves free with the plan to provide health care for all. The blinders will be off as we soon realize there is no money to provide the benefits that are in those thousand page long bills. Oh, have you considered there may be a new government entity to administer it? Imagine more government jobs, with fewer producers to pay their wages, the career in that field won’t last long.
Bills, bills, and more bills won’t pile up long before the government coffers are empty, as millions decide to quit jobs because we can all receive health care. All for one and one for all is not the solution. It is about one for one, and only one. Our elderly, our physically or mentally challenged, can and should be taken care of. But, the rest of us should provide our own benefits. When we do, no one should be able to take from our fruits of labor.
One must doubt whether our forefathers thought we would become so enslaved to government and its social needs or greed. In-fact, they might believe it is time to amend the constitution, not abolish it. A country that is not free shall not prosper. A world that chooses to copy-cat rather than produce values shall not survive either.
What will it take for us to wake-up? Let’s smell this rose, choose to not accept it, and begin to think for ourselves. Just do it!
