It’s official – Brett McFall and I are …………in total agreement!
To give you a bit of background to what I’m about to tell you about Brett, I was only watching the news this morning and they interviewed a young couple with the obligatory toddler, and they were saying that if their mortgage went up any more, or prices of food or fuel went up any more they would be in real trouble…..they might not be able to pay their bills, or might even HAVE TO GET A SECOND JOB!
Good god, NO! How awful! End of the world as we know it for ordinary working class families to have to get a second job. (Or – even worse – to invest a little bit of time or cash in learning how to be more useful to their employers so that they might be worth a bit more in the job they are in). That woman with the toddler – bet she doesn’t work at all, not even from home….. infuriating.
Now….don’t get me started on this topic again – I’ve written about this before here and here and even Judith’s had a go here….am I starting to sound like John Harrison?
I can’t remember the time when I didn’t have a second job going, or was learning about something that might make me more successful or more money. WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE LIKE?
So I open my Feedreader and Brett McFall, while across the other side of the world, is getting just as infuriated as me with the whingers. He’s just posted a blog posting that is both practical and metaphysical – one of the reasons I like Brett a lot and pay close attention to what he says is that he, like me, likes to combine the two. Get your trackback and ping turned on though matie!
As I always say, you can sit at home and try and attract success and wealth, but if you don’t get off your butt and DO something about it, then nothing will happen. It’s no secret that the “Big Secret” about “The Secret” is that you have to make it possible for TUT, The Universe and everything to help you. Remember the joke about the drowning man and God? Go watch “The Pursuit Of Happyness” with Will Smith if you don’t know that one. Man, that film shows you that the most important part of the “Law Of Attraction” is “action”. He never once blames anyone else – he just knows “it it’s to be it’s up to me”.
Anyway, back to Brett McFall…..he is having a good old rant on just this topic over at his excellent blog posting….go have a read!
“How to quickly and easily beat the petrol price rises while the rest of the world get’s pissed off about it”
“Yeah look, this subject annoys me quite a bit, as I’m sure you can tell by the headline I’ve used. And it’s because I know that what you focus on most in life will dictate how you feel (and I’ll explain what I mean by this in just a moment).
So I want to help you do something about it so that you can get back to making a masterpiece of your life, instead of worrying about oil prices.
And right now at least, the media can hardly do a news bulletin without reminding you that oil and petrol prices (or “gas prices” if you’re from the U.S.) are “skyrocketing” and reinforcing how “bad” things are.
But you know what? They’re only telling you one side of the story. In case you haven’t realised, bad news sells. Switch on the TV any night and watch the news, and you’ll be guaranteed that 80% of the program will be dedicated to negative things.
Bad news keeps people watching. When more people watch, the TV stations can charge higher prices for the advertising spots. The stations make more money. Quite simple really.
So right now, they’re having a field day with oil prices that are increasing. But what I want to tell you is to forget about the prices. Yes, totally and completely forget about them……
Because you can’t do anything about them Einstein.
Let the governments worry about cranking up the oil factories or creating hybrid cars, that’s what you’re paying them to do. Don’t let the higher prices at the pump affect your weekend … your conversation … or any spare mental time you have.
Look, if you have a car, chances are you need to use it. So unless you’re going to sell it and get yourself a bicycle, then your car’s going to continue as your method of transport. True?
So sure you can try and save petrol, go for it. But what I want to talk to you about is not getting sucked into the B.S. of worrying about it.
About now you might be starting to think, “Well that’s okay for you Brett, what about the fact that now I have less money in my wallet because I’m paying more at the pump?”
And that’s exactly what I want to talk to you about.
See, the more you focus on what you DON’T have in your wallet, the harder it is to do anything about it.
In case you haven’t read anything of mine for a while, in short, I show people how to MAKE MONEY. I’m fortunate to be someone who can spot opportunities and then make it simple for others to take advantage of them. So if you haven’t yet used my advice to do anything about improving your income, then maybe now’s the time, huh?
