Money & Motivation – the Tele-Class

Join me on May 19, 2009 for a FREE tele-class on Money & Motivation.  Find out the many ways we’ve been programmed to focus on money as our MAIN motivator!  Realize all the other motivational elements we could be drawing upon, and where that would lead us if we made those our main motivators.  Do you think our lives would be different as a result?  Do you think we could create more happiness AND more free-flowing abundance if we didn’t just make it all about money?

This call will be at 10 a.m. Pacific, and will be repeated (live) at 5 p.m. Pacific, in order to be of service to those who can’t make the call during the day.  As well, this call WILL be recorded, so if you sign up, you will be sent the link to the recording by the following day.

To your prosperity,

No excuse for food shortages

Despite what others may believe, I truly think there is enough food — no, MORE than enough food — grown to feed all the people on the planet.  This is a lush planet, with lots of space (currently) to grow all that we need to and for all to survive and thrive. 

When I read articles like this, accompanied with the pictures of the starving children — the innocents — I feel sickened and disgusted with humanity.  So much spent on war, and the killing of people — why not the saving of people?  Priorities are skewed, hearts are not in the right place, and money is usually the focus.  Ok, oil is usually the focus, but what is oil except money? 

Let’s open our hearts more before we use our heads, and work for the good of all.

To your prosperity,

Sue

Long time, no posting

It’s been quite some time since I last posted.  I find it amazing that each time I work a “job” job, I tend to not have the time nor the energy to devote to my own passions.  So, what’s up with that?  I ask myself. 

How can I either (a) get a “job” job that doesn’t sap my energy or use up all my time, or (b) do what I love and generate an income by doing that?  Isn’t that everyone’s dilemma? 

I ended my “job” job three weeks ago, in order to fulfill a promise to my daughter — to attend the birth of my first grand baby.  It was an amazing experience that I would NOT have missed, no matter what, and giving up a job to do that was hardly a second thought.  This was definitely more important, and most likely one of the greatest experiences in my lifetime. 

So, I am now in contemplation mode — and thinking of ways to generate an income (which will enable me to meet many of my needs) while feeling very fulfilled at the same time.  I have put out many applications since my return home from the birth and I find it interesting that I have not heard back, or have not been chosen, for any of them.  Am I upset?  No.  Perhaps a bit confused, but still relishing the fact that I may have to focus more, and only, on my passion projects.  I am not upset about that — no way, no how. 

I’ll keep you posted on how things progress.

To your prosperity,

Corruption in hospitals

I think of a hospital as a place of nurturing and care when I, or loved ones, get severely ill.  I do not envision them as money-making “businesses,” nor do I look upon them as ever being out of integrity.  Perhaps it’s because I live in Canada, and it may not be as much of an issue here, or it could be that I am just really, really naive.  🙂

So, when I come across articles like this one that speaks to homeless people being used as pawns so that a hospital can make money, it makes me really wonder what is actually happening in all the areas of the “business” of health care.  There is lots of info already out there on pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, etc. etc. etc.

Perhaps the people involved don’t see themselves as being out of integrity, since they are actually giving a homeless person a place to live for a few days every once in awhile, with meals and fluids, etc.  However, the overhead costs of them doing so in a hospital setting surely exceeds a regular shelter meeting those same needs.  And, who is ultimately paying for all this?  Hmmm…

To your HEALTH and prosperity,

Sue

Sick People Going to Work

I recently ended a job working for a “big box” retailer in a little town.  Prior to this, I had never worked for an employer that hadn’t paid for sick time.  This particular retailer had us earning sick time, based on the hours worked, however, the first day of any sickness was not a “paid” day off.  During my 7 1/2 months of employment, I did get ill a couple of times — one illness lasted 16 days straight.  Out of those sixteen days, I was actually away from my workplace for 3 days in total.  It happened to be a viral illness that couldn’t be treated with medication, and fluids and rest would have eased the symptoms significantly.  Luckily, I had a few weekends in that span of time to do some recuperating, but ultimately, if I hadn’t had to go to work, would the illness have lasted so long?

Going to work ill was not a great experience — not for me and certainly not for the customers and the staff I worked with.  So, why did I do it?  Ummm…for the money?  Of course.  On my meager wage, I could barely pay my bills, let alone have a “buffer” to create an “emergency fund.”  So, if my employer couldn’t support me while I was ill, who else would?

This article spurred my interest in writing about the topic today because it lets me know I am not alone.  In whose best interest is it that an employee go to work sick?  Nobodies.

To your health AND prosperity.

Sue
