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,

Sue

Profiting from War

As a result of watching the document, Why We Fight, (see previous post) I became aware of  the Center for Public Integrity. Cool name, and interesting purpose.

They published a book entitled Making A Killing — The Business of War, and here is a link to the site, with some accompanying articles of interest.

To your prosperity,

Who Killed the Electric Car — the Documentary

I love this documentary because it brings up so much for discussion.

During the course of history, we’ve had some amazing inventions that have been extremely beneficial to everyone and everything — people and the environment — and yet, the inventions have been thwarted, or actually eliminated. In this case, they actually destroyed all the cars they created.

So, who IS really at fault for this situation? In the movie they list a bunch of possibilities. They are:

  • Consumers
  • Batteries
  • Oil Companies
  • Car Companies
  • Lack of Maintenance Profits
  • Government
  • C.A.R.B. (California Air Resources Board)
  • Hydrogen

Allegedly, the consumers didn’t provide enough demand for the new technology, plus liked the spaciousness and convenience of the old technology. Allegedly, the batteries weren’t as efficient as everyone would like them to be, and were more of an inconvenience. Allegedly, the oil companies didn’t want their business taken away. Allegedly, the car manufacturers didn’t want to be told what to do by a regulatory board. Allegedly, the car parts of the old technology generated huge amounts of income and they were concerned about the loss of that income. Allegedly, the government (most likely pressured by the oil industry and the car manufacturers) did not enforce a zero emission standard. Allegedly, C.A.R.B. reneged on their initial stance because of pressure from both the government and the car companies. Allegedly, the hydrogen fuel cell is touted to be better than the EV technology, yet there are so many barriers to production, it could take 20 years for it actually be something people are able to buy and use. It was also argued that the coal emissions from producing the electricity that would be required to keep these cars on the road would be worse for the environment that leaving things the way they are.

Hmmm…and how does money fit into all this?

To your prosperity,

Temptations for Leaders

There are probably going to be a few references in this blog to topics such as this one, where a leader succumbs to the temptations of monetary and material gifts in order to fulfill their own personal desires.  In this article which showed up today, it speaks to a highly-respected US senator who (allegedly) has accepted gifts such as renovations on his vacation home, vehicles, etc.

By learning of such scenarios, we gain a better understanding of the illusions we live with.  In our innocence, we see what we want to see, and that is…that ALL of our leaders are trustworthy, in their integrity, honest, and seek to do the best job they can in our best interest.  Not in THEIR own best interest.  Not for THEIR profit.  Not to meet a desire in them, but to meet the needs of all.

I hold the vision in my mind that some day, in my lifetime, I am shown the true leaders — the ones that work on behalf of the good of all.

To your prosperity,

Sue
