In the words of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, "Don't Panic." (If you have not read it yet, you owe it to yourself. It's a good primer for living.) Wall street and the global stock markets can be misleading. They measure speculation of supply and demand. The economy is not the stock markets. So when you hear a lot of doom and gloom about the markets, remember: Real value is what you do with your life. Of course, there are a lot of people who are seeing their life's monetary savings shrink. This is very frightening if you measure your value or your ability to survive by money. What's the alternative? How about measuring your value and ability to survive by:
  • The number of people you love and take care of
  • Your health and energy
  • Your critical thinking skills and knowledge
  • The number of ideas you come up with
  • Your creativity
  • Your resilience and ability to connect with spirit

These are the true measure of who you are and your ability to survive. Yes, having a lot of money may make it easier to do the things you want and act the way you want. But actually, therein lies the problem. Have you ever noticed that most of the most balanced, aligned and wonderful people either do not have a lot of material wealth or it does not have much of an effect on them if they do have it? Have you also noticed that many of the most messed up, mean and unhappy people are the ones who grew up with too much material wealth and not enough opportunity to develop spiritually?

I'm just saying, I think what we are hearing about now may not be a bad thing. If it reconnects people with what's really important, isn't that good? If it reconnects us with our source, other people and taking better care of ourselves, isn't that a positive development? In some way, haven't people been asking for things to be different? Isn't that what was promised by the election? We were promised change and now we have it. Shouldn't we be happy that we got what 52% of the voters wanted? My theory on this is that everything had grown a little too intense and our lives were starting to behave like the Windows OS when it needs to be rebooted. It accumulates problems and gets unstable until the only thing you can do is pull the plug and start over. It feels like we are rebooting the economy. In fact, back in the depression, Roosevelt declared a Bank Holiday (a great euphemism for rebooting the banking system) because everything was so messed up no one knew what was going on.

When a computer reboots, it usually tries to save some data and put things in order before it starts again. That takes time as it shuts down services and gets ready to restart. And once it starts again with a clean slate, everything runs much better. It's what the stock markets are doing now. If this is the case, then what do you need to do?

  • Take really good care of your health. Relax, exercise, eat well, do positive things like yoga, and get body and energy work to keep you aligned and balanced
  • Set your goals and write an action plan to accomplish your goals
  • Take good care of your family and friends
  • Use SWOT techniques (See earlier post)
  • Do things to open and use your creativity
  • Don't be pulled in by the fear in the media (Be aware that it is a manipulation of your emotions to hook you in.)

By following these important steps you will be more prosperous. Why? Because you are going to be mentally and emotionally agile and prepared to see and act on opportunities that other people will miss. During times of change, this is what's really important.

Be well and Prosper Sincerely,

Kris Stecker, President Spa Tech Institute
