You need to learn HOW TO HELP YOURSELF!

We currently live in uncertain times... an unpredictable future, one full of speculation and instability. Gone are the days when you could count on working with the same business or company until retirement or working in a strong economic environment with business growth and infrastructure development and construction way into our future, securing our personal wealth and stability.
Look around you! Talk to people in the community.... travel out to the small towns and see how fragile it is........ it is very sad...
Generations of primary industry producers living off the land as well as many small business owners in towns and cities are slowly being reduced in numbers because it is so hard to keep up with the financial commitments in these harsh environmental conditions, government red tape and bureaucratically created restrictions...as well as increased running expenses and reduced production/income levels and the list goes on.
But it doesn't stop there... large corporations and companies are, one after the other it seems, gradually laying off workers in favour of overseas head offices and production facilities. Government change of policy or direction regarding trade import/export rulings effect not just directly related businesses but secondary and tertiary and along with it generations of skilled workers and business people involved in that industry - gone - how do you replace that!
What if... on top of all this you are effected by natural disasters? The repercussions are endless ...
So... who does all of this effect?..... you and I alike...and our jobs, businesses, our home and our way of life!
If we can't find a job, how do we pay our mortgages? How do we live? How do we look after our family?
If we don't keep on top of our commitments, we can very easily end up on a downward spiral that gets out of control - out of our control - and this is what we so desperately want to avoid.
The stress placed on the average working person to cope with these pressures takes its toll on their health and relationships with family and friends.
So, looking for options to reduce these stresses needs to be encouraged as well as helping those around you in times of hardship.
It is not easy and is very hard to do but there are many answers to these complicated problems that we find ourselves in... don't isolate yourself, look for your answer within your problem and make little steps to get out of it.
Hopefully within this category of our site we can help you find your answers...... maybe there are people out there who can share their stories and help you find direction.
