					And Beat Those Who Are Betting Against You
  by Michael D. Hume, M.S.
  I'll say it again: there are two kinds of people out there. Some take charge and take
initiative - they bet on themselves. The others wait for someone else to take care of
them. When they bet, they bet against themselves, and against everyone else.
  So who's betting against you?
  In the United States, the government is betting against you. Generally, the ruling
Democrats are betting you can't take care of yourself, you won't do the right thing,
and you don't have a clue about the coming global financial storm.
  Bet on yourself: vote for candidates who know what's coming and are committed to
reversing course, and cleaning up the mess in Washington. Vote for measures that
lower taxes and restrain government size and spending. Vote to revitalize the most
generous, prosperous free-market private sector ever conceived, and to remind the
government that it works for you, not the other way around. Educate yourself about
how to be a winner in the new global economy.
  It's possible your employer is betting against you. They're cutting your hours, or your
salary, or your benefits - they're betting you can't go get a better job.
  Bet on yourself: start a business on the side, and grow it masterfully until you no
longer need that employer. These days, you can start an online enterprise for a
surprisingly low investment of money, time, and energy. You just need to believe in
yourself.
  Many people, from some of your fat friends to the people who want to sell you junk
food, are betting against your health. They're betting you can't run that half-marathon,
or lose that weight, or stick to that diet.
  Bet on yourself. Eat right, go jogging, get your sleep and your daily two liters of
water, and take your vitamins. Become a physical specimen who doesn't need to rely
on encouragement, but instead encourages others. Become a healthy person who
doesn't need to rely on the myth of quality government health care!
  If you're an optimistic, hard-working, values-driven person, you will succeed. There
will be obstacles, and there will be naysayers. They are there to take your bet. That's
OK - you have something they don't have. You have the ability to bet on yourself and
win.
