We need security for our money, our jobs and our assets. We want security for our families, our marriages and our friendships.
We want to be free from danger, attack or risk. We do not like fear, anxiety or doubt.
We want to feel safe.
Security is a big business in this world. For example, consider the billions spent on national security, Internet security, financial security, health insurance security and retirement security.
But what truly gives us security? Money? Expertise? Armed forces?
No, because wealthy people, experts and people with weapons feel just as insecure as everyone else.
The security we all want is the ability to determine our course in life. We just want to enjoy a safe, peaceful, prosperous future.
How can we get this kind of security?
"Self-confidence alone is security. Your ability is your security. There is no security but you." -- L. Ron Hubbard
For example, if you are confident you will be safe in your home, you have security. If you are confident you will earn enough money for all of your expenses, you have financial security. If you are sure you will always be a valuable worker, you have job security.
So why do we feel insecure?
"INSECURITY EXISTS IN THE ABSENCE OF KNOWLEDGE." "All security derives from knowledge." -- L. Ron Hubbard
For example, if you had the knowledge that you would always have plenty of money for your needs, you would feel secure. If you had the knowledge of how to make your marriage go well, you would have a secure marriage.
KNOWING you will be okay is security.
So how do you reach this level of security?
By increasing your knowledge about work, business, finances, computers, marriage and, of course, successful living.
