Be Responsible for Your Economic Condition
Parasites, as defined by UXL Encyclopedia of Science states the following:
A parasite is an organism that depends on another organism, known as a host, for food and shelter. A parasite usually gains all the benefits of this relationship. In contrast, the host may suffer from various diseases, infections, and discomforts as a result of the parasitic attack. In some cases, however, the host may show no signs at all of infection by the parasite.
Everyone is responsible for their life and ultimately the only one that can change it. As a child I was raised to know and believe that it was my responsibility to take care of myself. It was instilled that it is, and has always been, my responsibility to take care of myself. "Your father and I won't always be around" so you have to move with wisdom, make logical decisions, and set in motion your career. This set the foundation for me to know to search for my path: college, trade, certificates, etc.but the expectation was set was the more you do to secure your future the more financially successful you will be. As a child my mother pointed out successful women who achieved, owned their own homes, and were enjoying the rewards of preparing themselves in life. These achievements reinforced that with hard work and preparation the lifestyle of my choice was within reach.
The light (truth) and dark (evil) can not dwell together for the reason that each are, inherently, traveling different paths.
The good news is that you can decide at any moment to live differently but you have to want it for yourself. It is always better to attain your own wealth because it is not dependent on anyone else and that gives you a reward for your labor and peace of mind. Priceless.
You are not the victim of your life you are the perpetrator.
The decisions you made in life were, and are, your own. So if you are playing the victim, stop it. You chose your life and you alone have the power to choose differently the path you walk.
The bible speaks the truth self-sufficiency and personal responsibility.
"If a man will not work, he shall not eat." 2 Thessalonians 3:10
Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth. Proverbs 10:4
How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest -- and poverty will come on you like a bandit and scarcity like an armed man. Proverbs 6:9-11
