My theme today is not the excesses, the extreme greed, the corruption that overextended the American economy and forced the inevitable correction to come.

No, it's much simpler, much more important to each of us—and that is the fact that this is normal. Ups and downs, days and nights, winters and summers, positive and negative, front and back, left and right, male/female—pretty normal, yin and yang.

I've never seen an economic chart, graph, or indicator that didn't change—and if you can point one out to me, I want to see it. When you put it on the two dimensions of a page or a computer screen, it only moves forward, which is through time, and up and down—would you not agree with me?

And what goes up sooner or later always comes down. What goes down sooner or later always comes up. Well, not always, of course—because you could have something go down to zero, to complete and utter destruction. That's happening all the time now also, isn't it?

Of course, you have people destroying themselves on the upside, too, when the value of the American buck becomes so weak. You know, inflation continues—and it may follow exactly the same fate of many other high-inflation paper currencies.

Ah, the destruction of nations and economies. See, what I'm getting at is that all this is natural law. And it's up to the individual who is self-reliant, the E = mc2 self-actualizing person, to scramble when they need to scramble—and to know they have the resources, to know that they will make it through, not to get caught up by worry—and to get resourceful.

Being resourceful in bad times and in setbacks may be and can be cutting back. Or if you've lost your employment, maybe it's the very best time you've ever encountered—handed to you on a silver platter—to start that business that you've always wanted to start.

Take a look around, if you're living in these hard economic times. If you're reading this in the future, then put yourself here imaginatively. I invite you to take a look around. I see busy, hustling activity. I see cars and freight, houses still being built, repairmen with full schedules.

Now, I know there are different pockets of the economy, and I know that things are better or worse in other places. But there is money, there is movement, there is business. Somebody is getting it, or at least getting a share of it.

A lot of the people who were doing business conventionally before the decline are dinosaured in—they don't know how to adapt. Their business is going down.

Maybe business in general is going down…but that doesn't mean your business has to be going down at all. It means get resourceful.
