For some reason, we find it easy to point the blame of our political and economic standing on "our leaders" in Washington, D.C. What we fail to realize is that we have our own plates to step up to. That is right. We do NOT "mind our own business" and, instead, we look to suits on Capitol Hill to determine both our political and economic futures. There is a better way, but it requires taking inventory of our lives, taking responsibility, self-development, discipline, and self-control.
Kiyosaki explains in his book that owning a business will be vital for survival in the future as the greatest economic calamity to ever hit this planet is arriving within a couple of years. He goes onto explain that network marketing is perhaps the most misunderstood business industry in the United States today. Only in network marketing do we have the lowest barriers to entry, the lowest overhead costs, and the best systems for leadership development in the business world where those who stick to a network marketing plan for 5 years are known to become very, very rich. Where we fall short, as Americans, is in performing simple due diligence when an opportunity comes along. We are quick to dismiss opportunity because we fail to understand what makes an opportunity good and others, negative. We are more concerned about what our friends think of us, the lives of celebrities and the evening news than actually taking charge of our financial destinies.
