1)  If you CONTROL YOUR MIND, you CONTROL YOUR LIFE.

This is the foundation of every success theory ever written. It’s the “eat healthier; exercise more” of self-help. It’s also where most people fail, because the mind is a fickle, petulant child that hates discipline. To clarify, “control your mind” means…

The 7 Universal Life Lessons Contained in Every Self-Help Book Ever Written

As Jon Stewart once said, “Bullshit is everywhere.” It stinks up politics, news, TV, school, religion, and of course, many self-help books.

1)  If you CONTROL YOUR MIND, you CONTROL YOUR LIFE.

2)  FOCUS YOUR THOUGHTS in order to CONTROL YOUR ACTIONS.

3)  Controlling your mind takes PRACTICE EVERYDAY.

4)  Goals are useless unless you create SUCCESSFUL DAILY HABITS to achieve them.

5)  Results TAKE TIME.

6)  BLAME NOTHING.

7)  DON’T BE AN ASSHOLE.

Interesting list.

INSPIRATIONAL: International Holocaust Remembrance Day, lest we forget!

Why this Holocaust survivor still wears his concentration camp uniform

*** begin quote ***

Ed Mosberg’s hands stay steady as he slips into the striped cotton jacket and matching cap — an outfit identical to one he was issued 75 years ago, as a prisoner of the Plaszów concentration camp in Poland.

Although it brings back unspeakable memories, the 92-year-old occasionally dons the uniform, “so people remember [the Holocaust] happened. When I wear the uniform, they know,” Mosberg told The Post.

He still wears his original number plate — issued by camp guards as a way to dehumanize Jewish prisoners by taking away their names — every day. It’s now strung on a gold bracelet to replace the wires that once covered his wrists during his four years of hell.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which commemorates the 1945 Soviet Red Army liberation of the Auschwitz death camp, is on Jan. 27. But the Morris Plains, NJ, resident explained that, “For me, every day is my Holocaust Day.”

We forget at our own peril. Only a Gooferment can exterminate human beings on such a horrific scale. 

To the “deniers”, this man’s, and other’s, testimony, puts them to shame.

To those who would deny anyone’s humanity, or human rights, regardless of which minority they belong to — and we are ALL a minority in some way or another — just needs to see the logical result of their stupidity.

INSPIRATIONAL: Why was MLK assassinated?

Ron Paul: “Who Killed Martin Luther King… And Why?”
by Tyler Durden
Mon, 01/15/2018 – 15:45

*** begin quote ***

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s own closest advisors begged him to avoid focusing on the Vietnam war.

It will alienate President Johnson, who is doing so much for the civil rights movement at home, they argued.

As Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams discuss below, MLK ignored his advisors, vocally opposed the war, and found much of the liberal establishment had turned on him (having applauded his work on civil rights in the US).

I never connected this set of dots.

Argh!

I loved the “content versus color” spirit.

INSPIRATIONAL: Why we need “our” “female Human Resources”

The quiet hero of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ (Hint: It’s NOT Jimmy Stewart)
By Paul J. Batura| Fox News

*** begin quote ***

As we approach the 71st anniversary of Frank Capra’s perennial Christmas classic “It’s A Wonderful Life,” I think it’s time to reexamine the film’s heroes. The result might surprise you.

As a child, I assumed the hero was Jimmy Stewart’s wholesome hometown character, George Bailey. The American Film Institute agreed, listing George as the ninth greatest screen hero of all time. After all, the whole point of the movie is to show us what life in Bedford Falls would be like without George.

*** end quote ***

Here’s a lesson about why we need “our” “female Human Resources”. (And, we should thank all the countries of the world who keep “their” females barefoot, pregnant, and uneducated.)

While my personal “Christmas hero” is pre-transformation old Ebenezer — who gets a bum rap imho, I can certainly make room for a heroine as #2.

FROM BEHIND THE WSJ PAYWALL

*** begin quote ***

Anonymous Email to Visa CEO Led to Top Executive’s Firing

This fall, Visa Chief Executive Alfred Kelly received a troubling, anonymous email: Jim McCarthy, one of his most senior and high-profile executives, had been involved in romantic relationships with women at the card giant, according to people familiar with the email’s content.

The email proved a test for Mr. Kelly. He had been in the CEO’s post for less than a year and had made a point from the get-go of stressing the importance of company culture and how executives manage staff.
Weeks after Mr. Kelly received the email tip, Visa fired Mr. McCarthy on Dec. 1.

Let the chips fall where they may.

I never played the grab ass games common on Wall Street and large corporations. 

I’m sure that hurt me politically. But I could always put me head down in peace.

Hope there is more “justice”.

INSPIRATIONAL: Gooferment Skrules need to be replaced

Ep. 1043 Spontaneous Order or Lord of the Flies?
An Inside Look at a School That Puts Students in Charge
21st November 2017 Tom Woods

A promotional video about this school sparked a heated debate among listeners in my private Facebook group. The video describes the school as having no classrooms, tests, or homework, in which the students direct and evaluate themselves, etc. Is this a natural model for libertarians, or is it just plain silly? I talk to a staff member and a student at the school in today’s episode.

# – # – #

I bet I would have done well in a school like this. 

“Institutional prisons” replaced by a different meme!

Remember that the “Prussian model” for education was to create cannon fodder for the Army, willing morons for the factories, and useful idiots to vote for and be led by the elite. Remember that the “elite” cite NEVER sent their children to the “public school”.

Argh!

Great idea.
