Hope everyone is doing well at this crazy time for all of us. Our story this week is about this time and how history shows us things are going to get better, a lot better. So, make sure you read the story. As always, the first part is what we have done in the past week. If you are interested to know what we have been doing, read the first part. If you just want to know things are going to get better, read the story.
Lady Linda and I have had a lot of time at home to work on the Knowledge Is Freedom Publishing business. We have been taking photos of our discount packages that we are going to offer in our Gift Shop at www.youreamazingandillproveit.com I wrote some coaching programs that I sold for many years with my first lady Deb. I have written new editions of these programs that we will be offering in our Gift Shop along with other products that we are researching.
There is a new video that I recorded for my Neal-The Crazy Inventor YouTube channel which our tech guru Shane has entitled “How Two Spiders Changed My Life”. Shane wanted me to take a photo of myself with two plastic spiders for the thumbnail photo. Well, you cannot believe how difficult it is to find plastic spiders when it isn’t Halloween and delivery services are shut down. So, we decided to make our own spiders. Lady Linda went online and found directions to make some and now we have our spiders. In the near future, you will see new videos on my channel and also photos on my website designed to prove to you that You Are Amazing! and at the same time give you information you can use to better your life.
Now for this week’s story:
We all have things that anger ourselves about ourselves. One of the things that bothers me about myself is that I tend to move toward the positive side. Most people would think that thinking positive would be a good thing. However, for me there are some times when I just want to experience the emotion of the moment, without reasoning my way through it. But I can’t help myself. What I mean by this is I just try to find something positive about whatever it is that I’m going through. I think I have told you in the past that my first wife and childhood sweetheart suddenly died at the age of 38. Well what could you possibly find good in this situation? After the initial shock, I started thinking to myself how lucky I was to have known her. She literally made me the man I am today. We grew up together, but I digress. The point is, find something positive in whatever it is you’re going through. (This is for my son David. You don’t where I’m going with this, so you have to read the whole thing).
Right now, many of us are very worried about finances because of this pandemic. So, I decided to see if I could look back in history to find out what the financial situations were coming out of a pandemic.
It appears that the economy, and this directly should transfer to your pocket, coming out of a pandemic pretty much mimics the economy going in. If the economy was bad going into a pandemic, it only stands to reason, and history shows, that the economy will be bad coming out of the pandemic. On the other hand, when you go into a pandemic with a good economy, history shows that on the other side of the pandemic the economy will be good. But the news is even better than that, it appears that if the economy was good going into the pandemic, then coming out of the pandemic, the economy explodes.
So, if in the short term here you are struggling, and God knows a lot of us are, including me, hang in there. Things are going to get a lot better. You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It!
