I know this may sound silly, but everything in life has its set of rules. Things like, “What goes up…must come down!” We know a term like “Slow and steady” is the way to success. I imagine through trial and error we have come to certain conclusions and they have stuck in our everyday thinking. We tell our children words like, “Time will tell.”
Eight years ago, our Economy, for a lack of a better term, was going into the toilet! This is a true fact! It seems that some people, at least 40% of our population, have forgotten that we, the USA, were on the brink of an economic crisis heading in a downward spiral. It has taken 8 years of hard work and perseverance following a regulatory code that helped to bring us back into the future. It’s hard to give up greed for a set of annoying rules. Well, we are now once again being faced with hard choices. Do we allow ourselves that rush of immediate gratification like a shot in the arm of Heroin and become addicted to that same old, living on the edge, possibly hurting people on the sidelines, or do we fess up and realize that true success requires a work ethic guided by rules that work for everyone.
When you are dieting, if you don’t follow a set of rules, you will not reach success. It is true that someone who loses weight at a fast rate will gain it back more quickly. We know that taking a slow and steady path to weight loss, whatever program is chosen, will ensure success. Of course, this also requires a visit to a Doctor, someone with knowledge who can guide you in the right direction. The same goes for our Government. We need a leader who is well-versed in all of our economic strategies, based on trial and error from past experiences, or at least, willing to ask professionals for their opinions. I hate to say it….but we have neither!
