Ancient Wisdom - Can it Still be Applied Today?

*Advice on living a humane and compassionate life.

According to text inrepparttar Bible, King Solomon had spoken with God and asked for divine wisdom. As time passed by, King Solomon was approached by two mothers. Both women resided inrepparttar 147824 same house, both bore children three days apart from one another, and they were both alone inrepparttar 147825 home together. Whenrepparttar 147826 women came to Solomon, one implored, "...she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. And when I rose inrepparttar 147827 morning to give my child suck, behold it was dead: but when I had considered it inrepparttar 147828 morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear."

To that,repparttar 147829 other women retorted, "no, butrepparttar 147830 dead is thy son, andrepparttar 147831 living is my son."

And there stood King Solomon wondering what he was to do to settlerepparttar 147832 dispute. Since neither mother would mournrepparttar 147833 dead child, whilst claimingrepparttar 147834 living as her own, Solomon was inspired by a quick resolution. Certain thatrepparttar 147835 true mother ofrepparttar 147836 child would find reason, he said, "bring me a sword," and a sword was brought torepparttar 147837 king, and he continued, "Dividerepparttar 147838 living child in two, and give half torepparttar 147839 one, and half torepparttar 147840 other."

Immediately,repparttar 147841 true mother spoke up, "O my lord, give herrepparttar 147842 living child, and in no wise slay it."

The false mother then added, "let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it."

Based upon Solomon's clever analogy, he was able to determine which woman wasrepparttar 147843 true mother ofrepparttar 147844 living child. Givingrepparttar 147845 real mother her child,repparttar 147846 second woman left empty handed.

Becauserepparttar 147847 wisdom of God was within King Solomon to do judgement, Israel feared him from that day on.

Are You An Entrepreneur?

Written by Fred DiUlus

With allrepparttar buzz about everybody being an entrepreneur these days wouldn't it be nice if you could really find out if you have what it takes?

Sure it would.

The following profile was adopted over a period of several years of research from successful entrepreneurs worldwide to assist would-be entrepreneurs determine if they haverepparttar 147672 traits to undertake a new venture.

Can we describe what an entrepreneur is? Simply, an entrepreneur is one who undertakes something new or remakes something old and eventually succeeds. Entrepreneurs may fail, and often they do, before they get it right. But there are no entrepreneurs who are failures. Entrepreneurs only look upon a failure as a stepping stone. One door closes, another opens.

This assessment isrepparttar 147674 result of analyzingrepparttar 147675 character traits of successful entrepreneurs. It measures entrepreneurial readiness whether one considers s/he is an entrepreneur. Much study and research by academics aroundrepparttar 147676 world has gone into attempting to determine who is, or can be, an entrepreneur. Unfortunately, not one reliable predictive model has successfully been developed, nor is it likely one will beyond identifyingrepparttar 147677 traits and trying to measure up to them.

This all seems pointless however even if one hasrepparttar 147678 traits because it does not guarantee any measured individual will become an entrepreneur. Just havingrepparttar 147679 traits does not guarantee SUCCESS and yet success is required to earnrepparttar 147680 title of Entrepreneur.
