    “But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.

    "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."

    "How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.

    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”

    This is one of my all time favorites, this pic was taken from my "cubicle" in my last year before leaving corporate America... Roughly ONCE A WEEK, I would arrive to work with the thumbtacks still in place while a someone would constantly rip it down... Ended up printing 100 copies and eventually towards my final days covered my entire cubicle walls with "wallpaper", true story.

    "If you think about it, all that a university or final highest school can do for us,
    is still but what the first school began doing--teach us to read. We learn to read
    in various languages, in various sciences; we learn to read the alphabet and letters
    of all manners of books.

    But the place where we are to get the knowledge from, even theoretical knowledge,
    is the books themselves. It depends on what we read after all manners of professors
    did their best for us. The real university of these days is a collection of books."
    -- Thomas Carlyle

    From "The Republic of Tea":

    Writing about getting a company started does not get a company started. Taking action, not talk about taking action, is the one absolute requirement to start a business. You check your instincts, you check your information, you check the known risks against the anticipated rewards as best you can in and uncertain world, and you plunge. You take action.

    the quote of the day is from a girl in the street that i met today

    this quote is now my way of living


    she was raising money in the street

    i asked here " how do you stay focused while you are rejected all the day ? "

    it doesn't make sense , this is incredible !



    [​IMG]





    she told me :

    " yes i am rejected all the day

    and yes i don't care at all

    because the only thing that matters is success at the end of the journey "




    i thanked here for this incredible whipping i just received.

    i am 40 and this 20 years old girl knows better than me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    [​IMG]




    that's my way of living now


    " yes i am rejected but i don't care because at the end success will erase all the pain and disappointment that took place before "

    I love it.

    I see so many local business sites with lovely local business Wordpress themes from themeforest.

    They don't help convert visitors into enquiries, but damn, they look good to the local business owners.

    “To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.”
    Sun Zi




    in the book " the 36 chinese stratagems", this is called " cast a brick to attract jade "

    modern translation : a small piece of bait catches a big fish


    this is arround us in the capitalist society everywhere , 24 hours a day , 365 days a year


    by the way, if you had to read just one book, you had better read this chinese classic

    nobody really cares about acquiring strategic knowledge

    people think they are smart enough


    but when opportunity comes, knowledge will decide where victory takes place

    your opponent won't let you win

    Most people who try [investing] don’t do well at it. But the trouble is that if even 90 percent are no good, everyone looks around and says, “I’m the 10 percent.” - Charlie Munger, again

    "
    If you would win your way to the manifestation of those
    things that are your goals, you must not be swayed from your conviction
    and faith by any of the events or circumstances you meet in your daily life.
    Whatever is contrary
    to your belief you must reject as not having reality, as being only a temporary thing,
    a detour on the road you follow, not a setback at all but a necessary path to follow;
    for the whole plan rests in Universal Mind and though it may seem at the moment to
    be
    going against your desires, have no fear
    Have complete
    confidence in the fact that first cause is mental and first cause once set in motion must
    inevitably manifest itself in the physical world.
    Simply have faith in what you believe and refuse to accept negative circumstance as
    final. .
    if you remain faithful to your vision this sustained mental attitude will give reality to
    your visions
    and they will become visible concrete facts in your world "


    Neville Goddard. ( 1905-1972)

    i have never read something more important on persistence

    either it is complete madness or complete wisdom

    this is like being number 2 in any organisation

    the head is always criticized and attacked by the medias, jealous people and so on

    while the number 2 has power anyway and is protected from envy and so on

    the best place : behind the curtain

    by the way the most powerful people of the world are not dancing monkeys on stage like politicians

    they are protected from attention , envy, attacks and so on

    i will explain with yin and yang

    each polarity can't reach the full extent of its power because they will transform in the other polarity

    1) example : young yang is spring , then old yang is summer
    then young yin is fall and old yin is winter

    2) example : the tree grows (young yang ) then it reaches its peak ( old yang ) and then it declines because the yang can't go further. it becomes yin again ( dust)


    but the seeds are the perfect " number 2 " because they secure the eternal existence of the tree cycle

    one particular tree wil die but seeds make sure that the whole cycle of life continues anyway and others trees will live

    being number 2 in life is the perfect yang which doesn't go too high so it can't be destroyed.

    people might say " yes ok, but i don't want to be number 2 , i want to be number 1 ! the winner "

    that's not the point

    the point is too never appear too perfect to avoid problems

    example :

    tennis player Roger Federer does not appear too perfect while he is the best player of all time in my opinion


    just think he waited 5 years to win a grand slam again after 5 years of failure ( 2013 until now )

    so he is the perfect force yang which doesn't go too far so it can remain yang instead of becoming yin ( weakness)

    who can envy a guy who has waited 5 years ? nobody

    this is the perfect example explained in the 48 laws of power

    law number 46 " never appear too perfect "

    only dead people and gods are perfect because they can't be destroyed anymore by envy
