Does It Matter Who Is In Power?
As I write this, the UK is waking up to the result of the election that is not as clear cut as some thought.
Maybe the general election results not what you expected. Or maybe they are what you expected. Either way, what are you going to do today that is different from yesterday?
Does it really matter who is in power? Does it really matter what the taxes are? What are you going to do differently or the same?
Are you going to use any changes to add to your growing excuses list? Are you really able to time the market? I say, do what you dream to do and let all the hot air blow around you.
‘Doing’ can make you more robust than any change in power or policy.
Think about the people who bemoan the NHS. Many of them could probably afford to use the increase in personal allowance to get private healthcare (only about £400 per year)?
People who think the government borrows too much? Well, how much personal debt are they in? If the government is fragile, better make your own finances robust and start saving more.
Taxes going up so you'll be worse off? You can always earn more money, save more money. Or you could watch Netflix and complain on Facebook.
Of course, if you really don't like the result, you always have the opportunity to move. But before you do, take chance to be grateful for what you already have. Would you complain less in Syria, North Korea or Somalia?
If you live in the UK you already have it good. There may be people that have more than you, there may be people that have less than you.
Stop complaining and either accept it or do something. There is nothing else.
