I honestly believe it's one person at a time. I know that may sound naive as vast nations keep moving vast sums of borrowed money around trying frantically to keep their treasuries afloat.
How could one person counter this?
But recently a client of mine told me about one person. One person donated a gift to his small college in the midwest. And it was an anonymous cash gift of $100,000,000. Yes you read that right, one hundred million dollars.
Steve Jobs was one person, and look at all the wealth (and jobs) he created. True, too, with Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook. He was one person, one nerdy college student in a dorm creating a network for the school to connect with online.
A woman I know is a wonderful actress and could have remained simply an actress forever but instead divined a mission to teach women to become amazing trim and fit through pole dancing and music....Sheila Kelley... now a movement... called SFactor... check her out.... here: www.sfactor.com/
Although SFactor now employs hundreds and serves thousands, Sheila Kelley started it from zero. Nothing. And now all this.
Sheila, too, is one person.
I myself pay various coaches, designers, event planners, airlines, bookkeepers, accounting people, etc.... I pay them money and add to their own prosperity. I am able to do this because my books and my seminars sell. In fact, my books sell in China. China pays me for that... China pays one person.
Our government borrows money from China just to make the interest payments on its own out of control debt. But I don't borrow from China; the money
China sends me is for work I have done.
I don't owe China anything. I am one person.
You are one person.
I believe that one person at a time we can create worldwide prosperity.
I am ready to start.
