A systematic approach.


When I was younger I tended to be a bit of a hot head. I would get angry quickly and always wanted to prove to people that my ideas and beliefs were right. I would argue black and blue and get angry when people couldn’t see my point of view.


Thankfully over the years I have calmed down and no longer need to fight the system. I believe that fighting the system gets you nowhere in life. In fact the most successful people in the world don’t fight the system, they use it to their own advantage.


If you have a look at the people that want to fight the system, they are normally angry young men and women that are being manipulated by other people and their ideas. All your student protests and Green Peace marches are carried out by people who believe what others tell them.


Now don’t get me wrong. I think it’s good that these people are passionate about their beliefs and they have brought about some changes. The problem is that these people are fighting the system and never have much to show for it. If they were to use the system then they would be so much better off, both in the amount of success that they would have and financially.  This is what the organisers of protests and marches figured out long ago.


The heads of student protest and Green Peace have stopped fighting the system. They realised years back that instead of fighting the system they would use it, manipulate it and other people to their own advantage. They put out all of their documents and propaganda and get people angry and militant over various issues. They then get the mob to march, and get arrested while they sit back and watch and never get in trouble.


The organisers are also the people that do very well financially out of these organisations. When you look at most of the protesters, especially your radical greenies, they drive old cars, wear second hand clothes and struggle to make ends meet. The organisers have big flash houses and fly around the world in luxury.


In extreme circumstances this is what happens in terrorism.  The heads of the major terrorist groups recruit angry young men, brainwash them and get them to die for the cause. The leaders stand back, take to glory and continue to live.  The leaders use the system, the terrorist operative fights the system and dies. Take 9/11 as an example. Osama Bin Laden sits back and claims his victory while he sends young men to die. And I bet, that no matter how fanatical they may have been, in the last seconds of their lives as the buildings came hurtling towards them, they felt rather stupid that they had allowed themselves to be manipulated into killing themselves for such a piece of shit like Osama Bin Laden


While your life may not be so extreme I need you to ask yourself if you are fighting the system or working with it. I’m not trying to say that you shouldn’t stand up for yourself or to sell out yourself either. However, you need to make a decision on where you want to be in life.  Are you fighting a cause because its important, or fighting just to fight?


Maybe it’s time to put down the gloves. If fighting won’t achieve your dreams it’s time to do something new. No matter what you are trying to achieve, use the system. Follow the steps, whether you like them or not and you will be more successful. If it was a running race, as a person using the system you would have run, accepted your medal and finished your shower, while the fighter is still arguing why the white starting line should be in brail for blind people. Your done and they can’t get started.


In simple terms, do you want to be right, or do you want to be successful?


See you next week
