Don't Let the Kool-Aid Kill You

3/12/2009   Comment on This

With the economy in the shape it is, attitude is extremely important. In the movie "Shawshank Redemption" Morgan Freeman's character says, "Get busy living or get busy dying."

Touche. Get busy living or get busy dying. In these times, we have to be grateful and have this attitude: either get it into gear, or fold up and stay under the covers in the morning. I don't see a choice.

Why give up? Is it easier to do? Absolutely. It's a whole lot easier to give up than go out and do something about it. Going up the hill is tough, but well worth the aggravation. You prove to yourself that if you can come through the turmoil, there is a future. This country was founded on hard work, guts, and common sense. Can you say that today?

I think we have become lazy and feel entitled for whatever reason. The country is going through a correction right now and you must be up to the challenge, no matter who is running the country. I don't like many of the things going in our government. I can only get busy living and try to make things better.

Sitting around and drinking the negative kool-aid might make you feel warm and fuzzy, but you're giving in to the dreaded attitude of negativity. There are very few people who make a living that way. Unless you're Sean, Rush, or a few other people, I suggest you listen less and work more. The kool-aid will kill you.

What flavor Kool-Aid do you drink? Tell me
