LIFE = UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
If you can feel this equation. I said IF you can FEEL this equation you can solve any mystery of life.

Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to become the means by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of other men. Blood, whips and guns – or dollars. Take your choice – there is no other.
― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
Are you tired of relying on government to create and enforce social benefits on your behalf?
The challenge of developing and implementing social benefits in our society may be two-fold. On one hand, we may not trust ourselves to create social programs and utilize them on a regular basis, except for maybe under a compulsive decision. On the other hand, we are comfortable donating to charities and trusting them to make the right decisions.
The recent presidential election showed that there is a strong need for all of our voices to be heard not just half of the voices. Not doing so could have consequences and risks. What if our choices prove to have less than desirable outcomes?
How reliable are government and public or social policy? Can we trust it with our lives and aspirations? Could issues arise if we solely rely upon presidents, congresses, bureaucrats, and especially lobbyists to help form and enforce social goodness upon all of us?
Could there be a better alternative?
Imagine if we could make a difference in our society by individually and collectively doing our part and giving back to society?
Could we enhance our financial well-being and bring about real social change in our society individually? What if we created personal policies and chose to give back and restructure our economic ecosystem with the good we do individually or voluntarily in groups?
Are there products and services social entrepreneurs make so compelling that we could rely on them to bring about better social policy? Are they better than those supplied by professional legislators and other policy developers?
In 2017, look for more articles related to how individuals may collectively bring about social change through individual choices.
Shall we consider creating robust, well-intended giving and sharing platforms in individual markets? Are the old ways of the central planning system going obsolete? Connect with us at http://sharegro.com/articles for more about growing well-being while contributing to society.
