Economics 101 - Part 2
"Where there is fear, there is panic.
Where there is panic,
there is money to be made."
-- Danny K.
Growing up, I use to dislike people with an abundant financial wealth. I use to find them to be egocentric, cold liars, loud, bitter, impolite, disrespectful, power - sex and drug addict, miserable, impatient, paranoid and having a one track mind: "Watching their profits and thinking how to make even more by any means necessary."
To this day, I have never met any fortune 500 CEO. Therefore it's unfair to cast a fair judgement on a person from only reading or watching TV news reports on them. I am sure deep within they are not all miserable persons, since blood and emotions run through their veins to place them above a cold harden rock.
Now as an adult, I have come to realize that money isn't the root to happiness, evil or greed. Money is just a necessary living tool of amplifies who we really are from the inside out. For example, if you are an evil person, with money in hand, you will become: "Evil x 10" (a variable number depending on the amount of cash in your bank account).
However, if you own a golden soul, the presence of money in your wallet is only a way to extend your angle wings beyond immediate family members to reach other people in need through philanthropic actions.
Please take note, it is also very important to remember dear readers, whether you own $10, $100, 000.00 or $1000, 000, 000.00 in your personal savings account, you can always share a hug at any time, any where and at any level of your financial wealth status. Have you given a hug to someone today? If not, what are you waiting for? I, Louis Mercier, dare you!
Close your eyes, open your arms and your soul and start with a self hug, then hug your parents, hug your siblings, hug your pet(s), hug your lover, hug... (don't forget to send me a hug too;)
"Hugs are free to give and priceless to receive"
