Being I live in Florida most of the year, I had the opportunity to cast an early ballot before leaving for China late last week.
Amongst the many choices – or lack thereof, my primary choice was to vote for myself.
That’s right. For ME, MYSELF and I.
Selfish me – making a choice to be free.
That’s my PRIMARY CHOICE.
No politician, regardless of how slick, is going to give me or anyone else health, wealth or witticism.
They can promise all they want – but placing your faith in them is sort of like casting emeralds into the sewer. It’s a rare day on earth when modern day politicians propose change for the better – and this year, despite all the rhetoric, is no exception.
So I’m in China right now – watching capitalism grow by leaps and bounds while the U.S. races sphincter-first into socialism.
It’s quite an amazing view. From the outside China is often depicted as nothing but a bunch of commie totalitarian thugs. Yet, from the inside, there’s no better display of the glories of capitalism, team work and creativity.
For example, last Sunday I went to visit the Bird’s Nest and the Water Cube. The BN is where the opening Olympic ceremonies were held. The WC is where Michael Phelps won his 8 gold medals.
The two places were jammed with customers paying to go inside and tour the facilities. Not only that but 100 couples paid big bucks to get married outside the BN that morning.
Inside and outside you can buy everything from t-shirts and caps to cell phones and fountain pens – all adorned with the logos of each respective place.
These two modern day places will be making fortunes for years to come – just like the Great Wall and Temple of Heaven park.
And you know what – they built them with this intention.
They consciously planned on creating places that did not become meaningless AFTER the Olympics.
Ever hear of anyone touring Atlanta or LA to visit the place where the opening ceremonies were held for the 1984 or 1996 Games. If there is such a thing going on – I’ve never heard about it.
Now get this: All the Olympic stores selling gear, coins and Fuwa mascots – none of them are closed. They’re still open and selling Olympic merchandise by the truckload. I’m wondering if it will ever stop.
Ah, the shameful greed of the Chinese.
Now in case you think me anti-American – think again. I love America. I just don’t like the direction it’s going – nor the empty promises of the politicians.
So I’ve voted to concern myself, primarily, with improving the things I can control.
Last time I checked, those were my health, my strength, my state of mind and my education.
Yes, I’m investing in me, myself and I – because that’s all any of us ever really have.
One thing I believe: No matter what happens this November, I’ll still have my mind and body to deal with – so that’s where I’m putting my focus.
What about you.
Are you voting for everyone else but yourself. If so, there’s still time to adjust your vote so that you include YOURSELF in the process.
Pull the lever for YOURSELF today.
Order the international best-seller, Combat Conditioning – and make a real difference in this world.
Go here and vote for yourself before this freedom is taken away from you.
P.S. Be true to yourself, my friend. Take care of thine own self – and as night follows day – you won’t be false to anyone – not even yourself. Go here and order NOW.
