Beggars' Philanthropy

If you think you will be reading about few unfortunate people whom we find in our public life, then please be advised that it is not so. This post is about everyone of us, it is about our attitude towards being organized – a common crisis and thereafter.

Many of us have a complaint about feeling powerless to events influencing our life in these turbulent times we are living. Certainly there are many factors beyond our control that can affect us, such as the economy, our jobs, value of our savings or retirement plans, our mortgages, and even the weather. Rarely, we have a plan or answer to such events. Yet, we consider ill – organized planning, a result of such events.

The first thing you need to do is to work on a vision of how you want your life to be, as well as a clear plan on how to get there. It is surprising to discover that most of us are simply wandering along just letting life happen to us, all the while wishing that our dreams would come true. Why should we sit back, waiting for life to happen as it will, when we have the power to set our own goals and the energy and desire to make our dreams a reality? Setting goals puts you squarely in charge of your own life, and that is a very desirable situation.

Think about it!
