Life Transition: Financial Crisis

Commentary by Peter Shepherd
Financial Crisis
“Money has never changed anyone, it just magnifies who they are.” ~ Baylor Barbee
And it works the other way too, like this American proverb: “Before borrowing money from a friend, decide which you need most.” Worrying doesn’t help either, like Mark Twain points out: “Worrying is like paying a debt you don’t owe.”
“Crisis and deadlocks when they occur have at least this advantage, they force us to think.” ~ Jawaharlal Nehru
“Faced with a crisis the man of character falls back on himself,” said Charles de Gaulle. Crisis is a sign in our lives - one side represents danger, the other side represents opportunity.
“You can’t win enough, you can’t have enough money, you can’t succeed enough. There is not enough. The only thing that will ever satiate that existential thirst is love. And I just remember that day I made the shift from wanting to be a winner to wanting to have the most powerful, deep, and beautiful relationships I could possibly have.” ~ Will Smith
As Wayne Dyer said, “When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.”
“In prosperity our friends know us; in adversity we know our friends.” ~ John Collins
A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor; we learn greatly from the storms in our life and what we already know finally comes in useful. Aristotle remarked: "Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity."
“You can't connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path.” ~ Steve Jobs
Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.

Build Your Own Walden Pond ~ by Philip Humbert

Over 150 years ago, Henry Thoreau asked a haunting question. Since I first read 'On Walden Pond' almost forty years ago, it's shaped my life, my work and my goals. His question? He simply asked if it wasn't possible that we could live better than we do, that our lives might be better than they are. What a thought! Continues...

Economic Problems and Facing Our Fears ~ by Julie Melillo

The outside world, as big as it seems, is not as large as the human desire to live happily. And nothing can hold you back from getting what you want if you choose to make it happen, regardless of anything else. If you own it and take responsibility and accept it, both for your own mistakes and the world's, there is a way. Continues...
