Every Dog Has It's Day ~ yours soon

sick and tired of those vertebral-less people  没骨气

There are many who complain and, in the same breathe, say 'don't quote me ya!'
If you don't want to stand up and stand out for your rights, why should others shoulder your cause?
Beggar thy neighbours is not commendable nor noble
You either have a case or you fake it until you make it
What good can come out if everyone complains and no one make an/any effort to institute changes?
The world collapse because of blind loyalty and selfishness...

When the ship sinks, nobody is any smarter in a selfish and greedy environment
Your benefits and acquisition are as good as when there are peace, harmony, care & share
The rich cannot live in a sea of poor just as the wealthy cannot store all the treasures at home
The elite few must share the fruits with the working class & the peasants
Hoarding breeds contempt ; the hungry man is an angry man
The poor are not begging for handouts but for dignified living

The poor, less educated and working class must not emulate an attitude of indifference
"What doesn't concern me, is none of my problem" is correct until it hits you
Do you expect your village of compatriots to stand with you for your inertia? No! Do not even dream
Give a helping hand when you can
Stand up to the bully and be united in numbers; it's not the big dog but the bite in the dog that counts
There are plentiful of theories but few practitioners and adopters

Friends, lesser friends and acquaintances
In this dog eat dog society, made worse by discriminate distributions of economic rations, Man betrays readily
Man cheats to prosper & ethics and integrity has gone down the drain
The courier of bad news faces the guillotine
The smart and righteous die fighting while the cowards and cunning prosper
And Man shall self-destruct

Law of Comparative Advantage creates  more out of efficient deployment of resources
Law of Competitive Advantage allows more out of higher productivity
From dusts to dust and Man comes naked and returns empty handed
The need to hoard, betray compatriots and be selfish is a Law of the Jungle
But, and, until Man repents and care & share the world is moving towards ...the end
As for those who let others suffer while they feast, their endings & death will be more dramatic

The next time before you betray someone or cunningly set entrapment, ask again 'will I do this to one of my own loved ones?' If YES, you deserve to succeed

Every dog has its day
Perhaps, yours will be ... soon

Today I Shall Change For The Better

...I shall shine

I have been trapped by my overeagerness to move forward that I was paralysed
I was re-counting my blessings that I lost the fire to fight & to move forward
I indulged in dreams and almost forgotten to awake ~ dreams are plans-wannabe; being awaken executes the dream
I was lost but now I'm found

Success did not drowned my fire to fight but fear did
Compounded by repeated failures I became timid and stressed
My mind was clear but my thoughts & actions were muddled
I am awakened to my weaknesses ~ I am only a human like everyone else

Now, I shall change and the would will change with me

“Dream big and dare to fail.” ~Norman Vaughan 
There is only one option; get up, get going and work on your dream. Failure is not an option

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” ~Lao Tzu 
Sailing without a compass will land you on no-man's-land, not your intended land

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” ~Gandhi 
The coward relies on others to realize his dreams & it seldom happens

“There is only one success: to be able to spend your life in your own way.” ~Christopher Morley
You either write history or repeat others history

“The power of imagination makes us infinite.” ~John Muir 
Ya, True! But, get out of imagination and start doing ...

“Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail.” ~Charles Kettering
Never entertains failures; it is the beginning of downtrend

“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” ~Jimmy Johnson 
Its like the genius and the retard; a fine line indeed

“Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.” ~Babe Ruth
Be mentally and physically ready for results ...

“Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.” ~Napoleon Hill
For me, TODAY is the right time

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” ~George Eliot
Health willing; everything is still possible 

“To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.” ~Elbert Hubbard
You will end up "Nothing"

“The purpose of our lives is to be happy.” ~Dalai Lama
Life was made to be miserable but lived happily

“If you can’t outplay them, outwork them.” ~Ben Hogan
Work smart & be streetwise

“Always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you.” ~Arnold Palmer
Move the frontier, push the corners and think out of the box. Blow up the box if all else fails

“What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” ~Napoleon Hill
心有多大 舞台就多大  Whatever Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great, Osman of the Ottoman Empire, Napolean. Emperor Ching Shi Wang achieved were 'impossibles' during their time. They did it 

I CAN too

Lies, Propaganda Or Gullible?

many died without knowing they have been fooled...

Why is it politicians can 'hold the populace at ransom' & make them submissive the world over?
Propaganda, lies, misinformation & ...
Why the sheer numbers of population cannot displace a small group who commands like a Lord?
Elites, smart, shrewd ....
Why the majority willingly suffer while a small minority lords over them?
Naive, fear, misinformed, blind loyalty, simply lame...

It's not fear that kills but selfishness and greed
By making some more privilege than others, 'animal farm' rules
By making many hungry, few dare to revolt
Relationships were put to test and many are stretched mentally
Brutality, indifference, 'divide & rule', deprivation, unknown peppered with uncertainty 'lock' men in
Men are weak when deprived...

If only Man is not selfish and less self-serving

Charles Dickens 'quote' ~
No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.
Reflect upon your present blessings -- of which every man has many -- not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.

George Owell 'quote' ~
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.
Political language. . . is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.

The psychology of winning is to make deprivation out of Man & they shall remain subservient & biddable - this is the act of a selfish leader
A true leader leads but a leader-wannabe commands
Why must many suffer under the hands of the few? Alas...
Suffering manifest where costs is shared and profits and revenues are retained
Stop being gullible
If the many do not stand up and be counted, there can be NO complaints
Where many love sweet little lies becomes more bearable and rich-poor gap widens

The cycle of sufferings continues ~ its cyclical

Lies, propaganda, gullible? It's the acceptance, not the meaning
The sheep willingly and willfully walk into the abattoir
When death strikes, sufferings end
But, many are barely alive, let alone living  活生生的 不是生活
You decide your Providence but you also affect others
Everyone has a choice

Emotions & Bondage

when Man is rid of emotions, life becomes ...

However impactful and moving one treats you, it shall all pass
The overaching feel diminishes over time as new persons and events overtake
Or, when one has enough of you; 'tire' is the word
When parting is sudden, the pain is bad
Alas... nothing is permanent

In Christianity, dying is a passage to be with GOD
In Buddhism, dying is a delivery against bondage & obligations 生老病死
There is no regrets in passing but the living need to live on ...& live fruitfully
Material well-being evaporates with death; you do not bring along
From dust to dust

Helping others and being helpful have their attendant risks
Being taken advantage of, being made use of & being accused of ...are loads of negative rewards
We hardly see the need to be rewarded but vanity sweeps some off their good intent
When help is rewarded 'in kind', it has a tendency to become emotionally destructive
From time to time, a little help is the catalyst to recovery

We must rid ourselves of emotions ~ the bondage of boy-girl relationship undermines peaceful coexistence
It fills life with jealousy, envy, self-denials and undermine trusts
When love departs, hurt returns; why bother to have any love-hate relationship? It's an undoing
Vices like 吃喝嫖赌 emotionally disruptive
Have faith in GOD; humanly emotions are temporary

When the last breathe stops, life expires
The quarrels and tussles expire in godly cases but strives continue to plague those in material squabbles
If life is temporary, why squabble & immerse in sadness & misery? It's Providence
Unless, you unleash calmly and 'let go' your grasp of disgruntleness, disharmony prevails
The kink in your heart is for your to untie, not cut

There will always be feelings of inadequacy, however much you have
The human race cannot be sustained unless human follies and selfishness are minimized and eliminated
The world shall end in the hands of foolishness, greed and denials
It can be STOPPED if, and when, Man repents and restore 'care & share' to humankind
Life need not be miserable; it's all sugar & spice & everything nice

Live your best today & everyday
Free yourself of emotions & bondage
Smile; this lightens up your heart and manifests positive vibes
Stay healthy & harmoniously balance into your environment
We are TEMPORARY; borrowed time, borrowed resources ~ the last breathe is your finale

The cannibalization of globalization is in progress [Brexit is only the beginning] and countries are looking at protecting the vested interests of their citizens from jobs to income, from housing to food, from medical to transportation.. & the list flows.

Cheap funds and money-printing-funding have caused the excesses of a bloated global economy magnified by property-play, commmodities-exploitation, environmental pollution and and political gamesmanship. As in all illusions, the music must come to an end; the world is suffering from excessive obesity of production in a declining demand scenerio.

Many countries are stifling their terms of engagement and negotiation, Smart politicians exploit their need to dominate and trades favours with 'adversaries' to gain economic favors. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" becomes the flavor of the season.

CASH is King ~ for the time being

Between now and the next 6-8months, cash/money rules and can buy plentiful more units per dollar as recession and declines cut deeper. Government will practice 'zero-sum' growth & milk their people for more funding via increased taxes to fund expansionary policies. This is not sustainable and will crash in due course triggering a panic and the loosening of contractionary policies. The last sell-down will be substantial...this is manifested by protectionism, debts due and lack of loans/credit.

Short term growth from the lows, aka sell down, will lead to a rebound by mid-2017. Governments, the world over, will pass the blame of economic collapse to past policies and global economic weaknesses.

Gold will shine in an uncertain currency crisis.

Selective 'Buy/equities' in 1Q/2017 sell-down with a view to exit post August/September. Traders are discouraged from taking excessive risks.

Be prepared to cash out and rest as 2017 draws toward the close

2018 will be an economic quagmire ; from the ashes shall rise the Phoenix
