Time for a Change

160118134132-donald-trump-nigel-parry-large-169It is about time that the Populist viewpoint was represented in Washington. Having spent years among the techie elite of Silicon Valley, I can appreciate their viewpoints and their drive to succeed, but I know how out of touch they were and still are with the people of California who they depend on for food and shelter.
In a similar way, I can appreciate the charm of our former congressman and his generosity in bestowing federal money upon our part of Virginia, but his go along-get along attitude and mutual backscratching with those involved in crony capitalism made him a threat to our future.
I feel that small businesses and fully employed workers are the key to economic recovery, so fiscal responsibility and safeguarding the American people is a top priority for those of us who can foresee the consequences of autocratic central control and opening the borders to immigrants who do not wish to assimilate or follow American laws.
Anyone who works for a living and whose income is a result of producing valuable goods and services knows the value of delivering what is needed and wanted. Government which only responds to those who claim victimhood and penalizes individual enterprise is not in business to serve the taxpayers who pay for that government.
It is time for a change. I think that Donald Trump offers the best chance of us seeing this badly needed change.

Envisioning And Attaining An Ideal Scene This:

An ideal scene is a desirable future. You should be able to envision an ideal scene and be able to attain it by completing real actions that are actually doable. So an ideal scene is something that should be attainable . You should also be aware that it can evolve when you come close to attaining it.

There are no restrictions or any need for a grand and highly visible result with huge public acclaim. The ideal scene is what happens when you fix the undesirable aspects of your existing scene.

You can change from the existing scene to the ideal scene by following steps that put you more at cause over your life and environment.

The gap between the ideal scene and the existing scene can be very large and there are usually obstacles that appear to prevent a total closure between the two. However, if you approach the problem with skill and determination, it can be done.

Achieving the ideal scene may require homework. You may envision an ideal scene such as a life as a performer, a political activist, or as an entrepreneur, but you will need to achieve some reality on the actions and responsibilities that go with this life in order to have any reality on the preparations you need to be competent in that role.

Achieving an ideal scene always involves taking on responsibilities that you do not have with the existing scene.

An ideal scene is a desirable future. It must be your own ideal scene, not something you do to please someone else.

Attaining an Ideal Scene:

The first step in achieving this ideal scene is writing down all of the elements that make up this ideal scene.

It is written in no particular order and you will know when you have written enough, because you will immediately feel the need to get into action and make something happen. Your intentions will have gone into alignment and your life will show sudden movement in a better direction.

Some of the elements that usually go into a description of an ideal scene are interactions with the people in your life, your health, your businesses, your attitudes about life, your finances, and you write about them as if they are happening now, not as some future event.

You can even describe your ideal scene as a series of vignettes of life. What happens when you wake up in the morning, how you conclude a successful business transaction, how your friends and family relate to you and how you work together in life. The possibilities are endless, but they should describe life as you envision it happening.

You can do this write up completely on your own and may have done so with great success.

The underlying principal at work when you do this is the alignment of your intentions toward a common objective. A simple narrative description of life as you wish it to be will cause you to look at what you are currently doing in a new way and will enable you to break out of fixed patterns and immediately start changing your life in desirable ways.

Try writing up an ideal scene for some part of your life and see how you get on with making it happen. Just the exercise of writing down what you really want out of life will break things loose and you may find that you are able to make progress in ways you did not expect.

There are many tools available to help you achieve an ideal scene and they will help you align your intentions so that it becomes easier to achieve your goals and live the life you wish to lead.

If you Google “Ideal Scene”, you will get about 118,000,000 hits because there are a lot of people and groups who use this powerful technique to help themselves and others. If you look at some of the imaginative ways people have transformed their lives, you may be inspired to make changes of your own.
