It’s Hard To Justify The Money Spent On The 2012 Olympic Games

The world is hurting at the moment. There are millions living in poverty and children die ecah minute of diseas and starvation.

Closer to home British families are doing it tough. Prices are high and jobs are scarce. The empty seats at the Olympic venues tell the story.

In such a scenario can any government really justify spending close to $15 billion on a sporting event, be-it the world’s most elite sporting event?

The costs of running the 2012 Olympic Games are separate from the costs for building the venues and infrastructure, and redeveloping the land for the Olympic Park and these costs are paid for with public money.

The running costs are privately funded which means even more money is tipped into the Olympic bucket and for what real global purpose?

I can’t help thinking what a difference the funds expended could have made to schools and hospitals in Great Britain and to the nations that the UK gives foreign aid to.

Your Life Is Exactly As It Should Be!

We have to remember that even if we think our life is not right, it really is as it should be.

Jerry and Esther Hicks remind us:

Look for things that you appreciate where you are. It will put you in a place of perfect allowing, even when you are not yet manifesting all that you want. “There are many people right now experiencing the dream that is coming for me, who were at one time standing right where I’m standing. I’m right on track. There is not anything amiss here. Everything is unfolding perfectly. I am perfect where I am and gravitating to something that will satisfy me even more.” That’s the attitude that lets it expand.

— Abraham

Excerpted from the workshop in Dallas, TX on Saturday, November 11th, 2000 # 521

 

This means that we have to accept what is happening right now and keep our sights on where we are heading. If we do we’ll definitely achieve our goals.

Help Your Children Build Great Habits – Habit 1. Be Proactive

Sean Covey teaches us that our habits make or break our lives.

 It is essential that we teach our children good habits if we want them to be happy and productive.

He focuses on seven essential habits and today we will look at Habit No. 1   BE PROACTIVE.

This means we need to teach our children to take responsibility for their lives and not place blame. Our children need to know that they choose what they do, how they feel and how they react and that they must not allow other people or things to control them.

For example, we need to help our children understand that if someone says something mean to them they can let it ruin their day, or they can shake it off and think ‘oh well’ and move on. Every child has immense power and needs to know that the only way they lose it is by playing the victim.
