    The Wars of Olden Gods Before Mankind Emerges

    in Music

    A person that are brainwashed by the A.D. Anno Domini religion, without a chance of failure, have a shallow and illogical mind. They live with clouded imagination, and are always cynical, unable to see the glorious life of their divine antecedent ancestors.The only way to understand the world we live in,  is to be sober, literate, and intelligent. It means don't go to any church, it is a  foolish believers joint. Because mankind has an intelligent origin, and to know how life began, requires the ability to read and comprehend issues. To just read words in this cultural way where most people do not respect the deeper property of word elements--puts one at a serious disadvantage. They are two important points to bare in mind, we will never meet the living ancestors to tell us what happened in their days gone by, and so we must read to understand the messages they have left behind for us. When we cannot read to  know what they say to us,  we are left out into the abyss of ignorance, and that ignorance has you can see has brought down our culture, so that it is now sitting in the psychological ruins today,  because of the holy bible which sedated it.

    "Keys for Success Monday" Building Assets for your Future

    in Finance

    “If you want to be rich, simply spend your money buying assets.” 

    A fundamental factor that differentiates the rich from the poor can be found in their patterns of spending – namely the accumulation of assets versus liabilities. To put it plainly; rich people generally spend their life buying assets whilst poor people continuously purchase liabilities. An asset is anything you own that puts more money into your pocket or bank account, and a liability is anything that you own that continuously takes money out of your account.

    One of the dimensions of becoming more valuable as a person is that you become more astute in your financial literacy. That means that you understand the impact of where your money is going; after all, you’ve worked hard for your money so why shouldn’t you learn to make your money work hard for you? That’s why it’s not uncommon to see individuals and families still struggling to make ends meet after 5, 10 or even 20+ years. It’s not that they’re not hard working – many of them are some of the hardest working people you’ll ever meet, but very often we either haven’t been taught or haven’t been diligent in learning how we can become more financially literate.

    When you receive your income, be it weekly or monthly you’ll undoubtedly have the basic necessities of life to cater for – food, utilities, transport, etc. But what happens after that? Are you building up assets or liabilities? Below I’ve listed examples of some of the assets and liabilities that can have an effect on your wealth:

    Property and Real Estate
    Intellectual Property (patents, royalties:music, books etc)
