You are in control of your life
In these changing times, people need to realize each one of us is in control of our individual life. Over the past several decades many have turned control of their destiny over to either the government, big business or a union.
Many times this has seemed to make good economic sense. Much has been provided to us by working for a large company or the government and having all our economic needs satisfied with very little conscious thought on our part.
The downside is this has created a sense of entitlement where people begin to think they deserve everything in life just because they exist. People believe that work isn’t necessary and effort doesn’t need to be put forth to gain the fruits of our labor.
In most states, it is illegal to feed wild animals because by doing so the animal becomes dependent on humans and they forget how to fend for themselves. When the human involvement ends, the animal thus can starve to death. Many Americans have become like those wild animals, they have become so dependent on others for their survival that when the gravy trains ends they will no longer know how to make it on their own.
We now blame the government for all our problems, and rightfully so, the government has and always will fail us. We need to remember who voted for these people and who put them into office. We can only blame ourselves for the actions of congress and the president. Most often people are elected based on how much “free stuff” they are going to hand out once in office. The “stuff” isn’t free, someone is paying for it.
