Bouncing back is one thing… but why do I have to keep bouncing back?
I’ve been catapulted backwards several times as the victim of needless crime. Each assailant having a different intent, need and reason.
Each incident has cost me and those around me dearly. Continuously throwing me back into a negative financial state when I should be in a positive one.
Each of these instances has forced me to review my path, decisions and the people I have trusted or surrounded myself with.
Learning to understand that most humans are for the most part filled with;
Annihilate before you are annihilated.
That money has made us completely mad. Doing and saying things we ordinarily wouldn’t dream of.
Learning that food is so far down the priority list that it’s practically unreachable for most of the population.
The money one requires to get a plate of food is absurd.
Before you can eat you have to get a job, before you can get a job you have to have the energy to do so… it’s a psychotic circle of never ending hunger.
To Get a Job you need:
I.D. – Costs Money
CV – Costs Money
Cash for transport to interviews
Internet Access / Whatsapp / SMS / Airtime
Permanent Address: for which you require a job to get accommodation
To survive the first month you need:
A month’s worth of ‘bridging money’ before you get paid
Transport – cash for
So how does one so ‘easily get out of poverty’ when there is a majority in your situation and a minority who sit in judgement but do little to assist?
I’ve learned that not all men are made equal and although there appears to be much evil in the world I also see many good men who’s hearts are in the right place, who will do what they can in their power to assist and in so doing add to the collective benefit of restoring my faith in humans.
I’ve learned that Money is no longer the Moderator.
On this path I have grown to trust more in my instinct. To forgo the social pressures of taking every money making opportunity as the best chance I have, to not accept the abysmal conditions or dire compromises I would have to make.
I have grown to understand that my value is of my own making. That to showcase myself I must showcase all that transpires regardless of the judgments, no doubt being made by many who refuse to access their compassionate side.
To open minds to the possibility that there is a better way of going about things.
That we are powerful enough to remove poverty from the planet. All that is required is a cohesive, collaborative plan. I have that plan.. and it’s in action… 😉
In growing I have recognised that my faults lay not in my unconditional giving but in my refusing to acknowledge that there really is a lot of evil in this world.
Simultaneously I have grown to see that there is much potential within me that needs to ‘see the light of day’. With that in mind I have been growing my web portals, digital assets and collateral for the matrix of businesses which I’m creating to show the viability of a stable sub-economy that benefits the greater good.
I’ve created a fun, attractive and enticing marketing strategy which is intermingled with the purpose of alleviating poverty whilst also proving uplifitng to every person who encounters it – making it all the more powerful in it’s message.
I’ve found a ‘Face’ for the brands who’s personal purpose matches and enhancing the power of the brands tenfold. Driving the message with defined inspiration. (can’t wait to showcase)
I’ve devised the business plans for the collective, created marketing plans and have timelines on track.
Now all I need is the infrastucture to make it all work. :: I’m building a formidable network of very valuable people whom I am learning from to continue to maintain the growth and see this flourish.
Growing still I know that the Poverty of Character shown by a few will be over ridden when the poverty of the plenty is relieved.
Grow to Give to Grow
Give to Grow to Give
Whilst I could have been in a state of misery during the past two months after the ex-business partner debacle, I instead took the opportunity to grow myself by growing others. Landing in a backpackers 50m from the waves edge introduced me to a set of Millennials. All of whom have proved valuable in the Millennial Profile I had already begun to put together (Digital Assets – Predictive Ideology – coming soon).
Offering my insights on Personal and Professional branding has assisted a number of them in growing their confidence, their network by throwing their net wider to gain more exposure to their interests. Allowing them to align themselves with their purpose by sparking ideas which led them towards their passions.
Linkedin professional branding – personal and career advice – you teach what you most need to learn.
I devised another coping technique: I taught it to someone who is overwhelmed with being pulled in too many directions and feeling as though nothing was being achieved.
I’ve taught myself new techniques of making information stick.
So despite my setbacks and having to start a new journey tomorrow, I can look back at the last few months with pride in what I have accomplished, what I have built, learned, grown from and taught.
Mostly I feel extremely blessed to have experienced the happiness, contentment and commitment to a purposeful lifestyle of the Millennial bunch I’ve grown to care for. They’ve inspired a sens of hope in the next generation being far better at taking care of one another and the planet than prior generations have been.
I’m deeply grateful to have had the vastness of the ocean in view every day which has given me immeasurable pleasure and peace.
I’m very excited about the next step in my journey as I begin to put the pieces of the #Pi together so that it all starts to make sense to everyone else… and not just me.
Bouncing back is all about the blessings you take from the moments you experience.
