You Need A Miracle? Build One, Everyday!Written by Richard Vegas
Henry Ford, after he had achieved great success, was subject of much public criticism. Many people thought that he was very lucky, some thought he was a genius, some thought he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, some thought that powerful friends and influential people were "secret" of his great success. Why some people even thought he was so mean, that once he found out there would not be any chocolate in heaven, he would decide not to go.
It's probably true some of these things were involved. Except last one. But, there was something more about Henry Ford that only very few close friends and family knew. And, those few people didn't speak much about it because it was so embarrassing.
You want to know what it is? I thought you did. Read on. Henry Ford had a dream to build a gasoline engine with 8 cylinders in one block. His engineers told him it was impossible. He told them, build it anyway. They said, no way. He said, find a way.
After a full year engineers still had not developed V-8 engine. Ford told them, I want it, and I'll have it…..Build it. Think about that.. A year. Some of us feel we just swam English Channel if we spend fifteen minutes learning how to build a website. And then we walk around letting everyone know not to treat us any differently than they would king. Yeah, right, you're hind……..ous!
Well, everyone knows what happened. The engine was built and became a very successful motor for Henry Ford. He had a goal and determination. Nothing was going to stop him; not even twelve months of all his engineers telling him it couldn't be done.
If you use it? If you have a simple goal and plan to get there you will achieve it. Some people have a goal and plan for awhile and when they encounter a setback, they lose faith in it.. They start out right, but some "bad" break comes and they start acting like they're a travel agent for guilt trips.
Don't let your attitude turn you into a has-been. If you allow set-backs to dampen your spirit it can cause you to put forth only half-hearted and very weak efforts in future endeavors. You just won't have that fire to try with a can-do attitude.
Learn or Burn!!
Some people just seem to have this Henry Ford type of mind-set all time. Other people start off with a burst and then fizzle. The vast majority of people have never really learned what this kind of mind-set can do for them. Can it be learned? You bet!! It can be learned just like any other skill.
OH………It hurts so good!!
Internet breakthroughWritten by Pavel Lenshin
Enormous opportunity. This is first thought coming to mind about Internet. The only limits have implied by physical world and rules of nature. No country boundaries, no government regulations, no one-man power, fully unlimited market, immense business potential, unrestricted growth, space earnings and so on and so forth.
There are also a lot of fishy moments and some frightening things, due to "uncontrolled" nature of Internet like virus epidemics or violence propaganda. There will always be sick people who use Internet to spread "products" of their morbid conscience. The mankind should acknowledge that reality and do it best to counteract negative influence, therefore creating perfect conditions for unrestricted positive development and opportunities we will speak about.
To have clear understanding of opened opportunities and world, we are happy to live in, let us briefly speak about development of human society history.
The industrial revolution of previous centuries created a feeling of freedom to learn, to work and earn as much money as he or she could within limits of respective society. Before that happened a person who was born at serf or slave family was unable to make his or her way into higher society, didn't posses any rights but one - to be exploited. So industrial revolution had cardinally changed way people live granting them mostly equal conditions to achieve their goal. Everyone was given a right to learn, apply for a job and earn what he or she deserves, despite race, age or social status. That was dawn of high education and industrial manufactures which, hopefully, and how unordinary it would sound, comes to their dusk. Never before had average person been granted with keys to satisfy their every need at quickest time and best quality.
It is clear now that Informational revolution has taken place. It is not some kind of virtual talks and philosophy about nothing that we hear all time. Internet, being most important discovery of informational era, provides every living person with tools he hardly could imagine and clearly realize.
Speaking closely about wealth as a target every person would like to achieve let's draw a simple example. Consider you were born in average or poor family which are majority in past and, unfortunately, in modern world also, despite fact that standards of living skyrocketed and what is thought to be "average" now where dream of wealth even a 30 years ago. Let us also assume your goal in life is to achieve complete financial freedom.
If your birth had happened in agricultural era, only future you would have is to continue living your parents' life working 15 hours a day for landowner.
The older generation of our days had more freedom to decide where to go and what to achieve enjoying results of industrial revolution. These steps are necessary comprising education, including high education, without which a financial success would be questionable, getting a job or establishing a business with other enthusiasts. The life flows under industrial "society" are also "local". The business is usually run at place or settlement person lives in. It doesn't actually matter what size of market it occupies, what does matter is that is still has it's own physical boundaries which couldn't be overcome. The possibilities of business growth were also limited by desire of people inhabited this or that settlement, to purchase product or service being sold. Therefore net profits of such a business directly depended on number of people or size of market company served. Needless to say it takes long years of everyday work to achieve some satisfactory results. The financial freedom under these conditions had quite foggy look, but still there was at least a chance to achieve it for ordinary people.
