money for nothing?

I'm sure that you, like me, are amazed at the going's on in the financial world at the moment. Billions of pounds being given to bail out a banking system that has once again caused misery to millions of hard working honest people.

I was thinking "where has this money come from to bail them out?" and it appears that we (the country) have borrowed it, racking up huge debts. So my next question is who have we borrowed this money from? Certainly not any foreign government who are to busy sorting their own mess out. Well it seems we have borrowed it from private banks...yes unbelievable, we have borrowed from the private banks at huge interest rates to give it to other banks who have cocked up and we will be landed with the debt for generations...and will probably never be paid.

It's quite amazing particularly as this money is really just figures tapped onto a screen and doesn't really exist and yet we pay huge interest on it.

I wonder what other people think of this. Are they angry or the outraged, do they not care a less. I'd love to know.

This site gives some useful information on money

Obama another stooge?

While the world is optimistic that the new US President is going to change the world i'm not one to sure, or should I say that I don't believe he will change the world for the better. You might want to take a look at this site for another viewpoint on the Obama presidency.

Some Information is timeless

The information in some books is as relevant today as it was decades ago. With all the talk of recession and job losses it is very easy to start getting caught up in what the system wants you to believe and concentrate on. I do my best to listen to as little of the news as possible on tv or in the papers and instead prefer to fill my mind with positive upbeat messages. I was looking through my library the other day and came across some timeless classics such as Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill and The Success System That Never Fails: The Science of Success Principles by W. Clement Stone. Both these books have spurred millions of people on to achieve success in their chosen fields of endeavour. Think and Grow Rich has probably influenced more millionaires than any other and continues to do so today. If you have not read it I highly recommend you splash out a fiver and buy a copy. It will probably be one of the most well thumbed books in your collection.

Another thing I've noticed about books is that most successful people have them in abundance. There again most successful people are the ones who are continually learning, it's often the people who don't really need to who show up at seminars and lectures, buy CD and DVD programs and generally continue to develop themselves throught their lifetime.

Isn't that interesting?

Paul McKenna on TV

It was good to see Paul Mckenna on the BBC Breakfast news this morning, although he was promoting his new book (thought there was no advertising on the Beeb?) he also gave a quick demonstration of the 'tapping' technique as it has become known.

There are many therapists who do not like Mr M for various reasons maybe it's jealousy or even worse envy but I don't mind the bloke at all. OK he his on the TV to promote himself and his products but I think anything that highlights our profession in a positive light has got to be a good thing and I hope he his on more because the more people who see these things the more likely they are to seek out a professional therapist to help them.

One of our greatest challenges is to educate people about these therapies to make them aware of how we can help...and let's face it we have an awful lot of competition against us from the pharmaceutical lobby who have such massive finacial clout.

So I say rejoice therapy people for we have someone who is flying the flag for us, someone who the media like and people take notice of. We are all capable of delivering the same level of treatment if not better so let's be thankful we have Paul McKenna promoting us.
