Change is the only constant in Life
Quote: Heraclitus (Greek Philosopher) c500BC
In reflecting on the past year of 2021, never has the above quote dating back to 500BC seemed more relevant. When viewing changes at Income Solutions we have seen Tharaka and Elise joining David in the management and ownership of Income Solutions and a licensee change to Australian Unity, which has required the full commitment and skills of our staff to implement the required administrative and IT changes.
Throughout the year, everyday we have looked out our back windows and been presented with the changing view of the construction of the new council offices. This evolving building has presented us with changing and limited parking conditions, dust covered outdoor furniture and even (initially) explosives going off when preparing the buildings foundations. However, we have watched on with interest and are looking forward to seeing what new cafes, shops and services will be on our doorstep.
Further afield, 2021 has seen the repercussions of the pandemic continuing to be felt, with COVID cases exceeding 100 million and over 500 million vaccines delivered worldwide. All while wildfires rampaged through Canada, and the plan for a European Super League in the UK meet with international condemnation. It was great that the 2020 Summer Olympics and Paralympics were finally able to be contested, even with no crowds present, and to learn that Brisbane will be hosting the 2032 Summer Olympics!
In the face of all the above activity the financial markets have continued a sound trajectory, which can offer us a metaphor in how we ourselves, as individuals face constant change. The share markets operate within a regulated framework that provides a solid platform that allows it to be affected by change but not constricted by it, it is always moving forward in one way or another. So too can we, by knowing what we value most and what we are seeking to achieve be provided with the required framework to move forward in the direction of what matters most to us, even when there are many changes and at times eruptions happening around us.
At Income Solutions we are learnt that while some things may be changing in terms of Licensee and Ownership, the platform and philosophy that we have developed over the years continues to be unwavering, never forgetting that our core objective is to help our clients create a consistent, reliable, and truly passive income stream. An income stream which will guarantee that our clients live their chosen lifestyle with passion and the absence of financial worry.
Moving on from 2021 and preparing and reflecting on the 2022 year ahead, one thing we know is that there will be constant change and disruptions, but by applying our personal values and knowing and reflecting on our goals and what we want to achieve, navigating 2022 will not only be easier but may well prove to be a rewarding exciting adventure!
Best of Health & Happiness for the 2022 New Year
From the Team at Income Solutions
