    The say that the western world has become too corrupt, tough, brutal, unforgiving and unloving. They forget the reasons why they were doing whatever it is they were doing as they feel the rewards for their time invested have become futile. They feel a cheap asian is their answer How do you address this?

      asian COUNTRY.

      I have a few online businesses, but one of my live businesses is in confidence coaching. I spent many years in the media, having to speak on stage in front of many people, approach strangers on the street to get their opinion on something and learn to remove any fear of rejection and to go in boldly. But I realise how many people are so lacking in confidence on this level, so I teach this art form effectively with good results.

      But yes, asian COUNTRY. Where was my mind?

      "Wherever you go there you are."

      People who blame others for their circumstances or feelings about themselves will never be happy. We are responsible for our own happiness!

      We get to (choose) our own friends, lovers, and spouse. We get to (choose) who we spend our time with and what activities we participate in. Our lives for the most part are the end result of the choices and decisions (we) have made along the way.

      "When we change our circumstances change"

      I have found most people have never done any serious "introspective" thinking about the choices and decisions they've made. They are "reactive" instead of being "proactive" about life. Is it possible that a change can be good? Absolutely! However it's important to know why you're (really) making the change and also be aware if you have (realistic) expectations.

      It's highly unlikely that a whole (country or continent) is the root of our "problems". Happiness comes from within. It's one thing to move away for better opportunities or for the experience/adventure but it's another thing to be (running away) and not taking responsibility for the choices you have made.

      Until we learn how to make better choices for ourselves we are doomed to repeat making the same mistakes wherever we go. Being attracted to the same type of people, filling our minds nightly with negativity from the news, indulging in bad behavior, becoming cynical about life. Whatever you (look) for you will find. I am certain that wherever your clients presently reside there are also "happy people" living there! Success leaves clues! Maybe they need find out what these people are doing. Just as some people might view China as the "solution" to their problems there are probably just as many people in China who see the U.S. and the Western way of life as being their solution!

      Yeah, I was a little offended by that. Let's hope there's a noun in there somewhere.

    Hahaha what a slip. How??? Yes, asian country. However, my client continued to talk about the cheap cost of having an asian lady. I cannot generalise, but I always hear that ladies from certain asian countries, who are older, seem to take care of their western man.

    Sorry for the slip. How funny.

    I think it is not only in Asian Countries. This problem is worldwide.

    Advance countries have their advance move of doing certain crimes.

    If someone wants to go and live in one of the Asian countries, well, why not?  If it doesn't work out they can always come back. I don't see a problem.

    I moved to the US to make more money and have a better lifestyle.  If someone moves to Asia to have a lower cost of living and a better lifestyle--I am not going to judge them.
