Paul Keating did it to us once by making the famous "Banana Republic" Statement and the Recession we had to have followed.
Wayne Swan is doing it to us again and I am therefore reminded of the man selling hot dogs by the roadside. To all of us Joe Public's we still rise in the morning go to work pay bills, eat sleep and go about our daily lifestyle and here we are being manipulated by politicians and big business for god sake stop it and let us get on with business now....
Albert Einstein once said, "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
This Story is about a man who once upon a time was selling Hotdogs by the roadside.
He was illiterate, so he never read newspapers.
He was hard of hearing, so he never listened to the radio.
His eyes were weak, so he never watched television.
But enthusiastically, he sold lots of hotdogs.
He was smart enough to offer some attractive schemes to increase his sales.
His sales and profit went up.
He ordered more and more raw material and buns and used to sell more.
He recruited a few more supporting staff to serve more customers.
He started offering home deliveries. Eventually he got himself a bigger and better stove.
As his business was growing, the son, who had recently graduated from College, joined his father.
Then something strange happened.
The son asked, “Dad, aren’t you aware of the great recession that is coming our way?”
The father replied, “No, but tell me about it.” The son said, “The international situation is terrible.
The domestic situation is even worse.. We should be prepared for the coming bad times.”
The man thought that since his son had been to college, read the papers, listened to the radio and watched TV.
He ought to know and his advice should not be taken lightly.
So the next day onwards, the father cut down his raw material order and buns, took down the colourful signboard, removed all the special schemes he was offering to the customers and was no longer as enthusiastic…
He reduced his staff strength by giving layoffs.
Very soon, fewer and fewer people bothered to stop at his hotdog stand.
And his sales started coming down rapidly, same is the profit.
The father said to his son, “Son, you were right”.
“We are in the middle of a recession and crisis. I am glad you warned me ahead of time.”
Moral of The Story: It’s all in your MIND! And we actually FUEL this recession much more than we think we do!!
What can we take away from this story??
1. How many times we confuse intelligence with good judgment?
2. Choose your advisers carefully but use your own judgment
3. A person or an organization will survive forever, if they have the 5 Cs
One wonders why we allow these invisible Pied Pipers lead us like rats to the cliff over and over again. Change your thought patterns, get on about your lives, work hard, love hard and live hard it is too short to compromise. But Wayne stop this talking it down attitude right now please!!!

Father Christmas came to the Port Mall last Saturday with a little help from Love Energy. When I spoke to him he said the all of the children he met on the day were great and he could not find one of them in the Naughty List - he added that this could not be said for some of the adults he met on the day.
A little bird has told me that he could be making another Guest Appearance on the 10th December

Ok I know I work here but hey I am pretty damned proud to be part of this team.
Residential Installations have been the main focus of our business during the whole rebate and Feed-In Tariff “hurley burley” of the last few months. Of course there are lots of people out there who still are getting outrageous Electricity Bills and the future is still pretty grim with projected increase in prices looking pretty scary. Green Energy solutions such as Photovoltaic Solar Energy are still very attractive and due to competition prices of systems continue to tumble as competition between manufacturer’s heats up.
Love Energy still stands by its main principle of supplying only the highest quality product that will still be generating electricity long after I depart this planet. High quality is really important to understand as if you visit the Desert Knowledge site http://www.dkasolarcentre.com.au/ you will see for yourself why the product we sell down here rates so highly in performance and longevity.
But I started out talking about Commercial Installs and pointing out that we are doing lots more in this space. Commercial takes us into larger scale systems that are not only into standard grid connect systems but also stand alone systems and various hybrids which incorporate diesel back up generation as well.
I can show you some photos of a system we have recently installed at IT Cloud Service provider LogicPlus who are a full on hybrid service as they are not only grid connect but also run generator back ups support for their server rooms at their Head Office
You have to say the photos are pretty impressive.
So need to know more about what Solar can do for you give us a ring here at Love Energy on 1300 LOVEENERGY ( 1 300 568 339 for the uninitiated) and let us help you understand how Solar Power can help you reduce you energy costs and take you into the greener cleaner future.
You will excuse me if from time to time I come back and blog about some of our new conquests but I just LOVE ENERGY.
