It is always funny when people panic when the stock markets fall. They call such days Black Fridays and Black Monday, they panic when economic growth supposedly slows down and newspapers all over start reporting about how bad the economy is.
Instead these are the times when maximum amount of wealth is created, maximum opportunities become available because everybody else has closed their eyes and entered panic mode. They start worrying about everything, they start panicking, worrying and panicking makes them stop thinking and being open to new opportunities.
Just a few years ago in 2008 we experienced the same thing; all those who didn’t panic and looked for opportunities came out wealthier. The same thing repeats itself over and over again, of course with a few differences and modifications.
I am not just talking about the opportunities in the stock market, but every field, business, careers and new ways of thinking. When others panic, somehow there is an area that is left open, people are open to someone to take charge and lead, someone to decide how the future will be, in a state of panic and shock, everyone wants to be guided, wants to be led, this is a time when new ideas take hold and charge.
For a moment imagine yourself, walking in the hot sun, you have been walking for a very long time, you are sweating and feeling thirsty, your throat is dry, parched and you have no water. Your energy has started to drain out, you are licking your lips, trying to quench your thirst, but still you aren’t able to quench it. You are getting more and more thirsty as the sun becomes stronger, but yet you can’t quench your thirst that is growing. I am sure most of you are already feeling thirsty, I can sense it.
Now imagine an entire world like that. Imagine millions of people all in this state, what will happen? While it is a state of perpetual thirst, can we find any opportunities?
I am sure many of you might have thought of answers, many of you might have already thought of several big opportunities.
Some might have thought of the most obvious – selling chilled water? Just the sensation of drinking cold water, as it flows down, wets the lips, the mouth, the throat feels so nice, so satisfying. As your drink you feel yourself being filled with nature, with energy, with positive thoughts, with opportunity, with life. You feel fully energized, fully alive and ready to take on anything that comes your way. I am sure you might have felt this sensation in life. This is one of the most powerful sensations known to man, this is what makes us successful and achieve whatever we truly and deeply desire.
Others might have thought of air conditioning? Still others might have thought of planting trees and making gardens? Or maybe making manmade rivers and lakes? The opportunities are endless.
Every now and then the world experiences challenging times when millions of people get thirsty and hungry – such are the times when radical change comes about, new ideas come into existence, new leaders take charge.
And as humans, we all have a lot of potential, we have an unlimited source of knowledge, all we need to do is tap it. Look deeper inside and we will see it is all within us.
It was wonderful to get your emails and comments, my apologies for not having been able to reply to all the emails coming in. Just asking questions gave us all so many answers. Lots from people wanting to be volunteers and more involved in the Happionaire movement will be sharing a few things in my next post.
Keep smiling and keep drinking water!
