.10 Powerful Quotes That Made Me A Millionaire

Make Your Passion Your Profession

With an overwhelming access to knowledge, this generation often finds itself ten feet wide and one inch deep. Knowing a little about everything but never enough about one thing to matter. We have no shortage of words; rather, we have a shortage of the right words.

Poetry has been defined as the best words in the best order. But I believe it goes beyond a poem.

The right words listed in concert and color can articulate a comprehensive and deep meaning in just a few characters. A meaning that can fasten your fears to the floor and allow you to step into progress.

Anchors that keep us straight and hold us tight – almost like an injection of clarity and control for our most uncertain of times.

Ultimately, words are the stones that bridge the gap to our furthest destinations. From incomprehension and overcoming indifference to closing a sale and believing in God.

 Words make up how we think, what we know, and who we become.

But the right words change your life. They can change your story.

Why Successful People Have Hobbies

.Why Successful People Have Hobbies

Ryan Holiday  October 1, 2019

My new book Stillness is the Key just debuted at #1 on the New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestseller lists. The piece below is based on some of the ideas in it. Check out the book, and please leave an Amazon review—it helps a lot!

Winston Churchill was a mediocre painter and a worse bricklayer, but to these two hobbies, the world owes a great debt.

“It is a pushing age,” Churchill wrote his mother as a young man, “and we must shove with the rest.” His ambition was legendary. Multiple times, he shoved his way to the top of British politics, when Britain was the world’s dominant power. Once he was there, he did not let up. During war-time, it was not uncommon for him to work 110-hour weeks. Between 1940 and 1943, he traveled something like 110,000 miles by air and sea and car. A bodyguard once said that Churchill kept “less schedule than a forest fire and had less peace than a hurricane.”

It’s this exhausting workload that is worth examination in a time of “millennial burnout,” and digital distraction. More and more people fear that taking their foot off the gas for even a second will only cause them to fall further and further behind in a rigged economy that cares little for individual happiness. Certainly, it’s something I’ve wrestled with as I look back on my very busy twenties (six books and three careers) and look forward towards my thirties with children.

So how did Churchill manage? How did he not burn out and die early?

Columbus Day / Indigenous Peoples Day

.Columbus Day is a national holiday in many countries of the Americas and elsewhere which officially celebrates the anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Americas on October 12, 1492 (Julian Calendar; it would have been October 21, 1492 on the Gregorian Proleptic Calendar, which extends the Gregorian Calendar to dates prior to its adoption in 1582).

Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer who set sail across the Atlantic Ocean in search of a faster route to the Far East only to land at the New World. His first voyage to the New World on the Spanish ships Santa María, Niña, and La Pinta took approximately three months.

Columbus and his crew's arrival to the New World initiated the Columbian Exchange which introduced the transfer of plants, animals, culture, human populations, and technology (but also invasive species, including communicable diseases) between the new world and the old.

The landing is celebrated as "Columbus Day" in the United States but the name varies on the international spectrum. In some Latin American countries, October 12 is known as "Día de la Raza" or (Day of the Race).

The Truth Explained About Columbus Day

.The Truth Explained About Columbus Day

Matthew Rozsa  October 14, 2019

Christopher Columbus is a historical figure celebrated as a mythical hero in spite of his genocidal and racist past.  There are many good reasons as to why Columbus Day is such a controversial holiday.

Like Andrew Jackson, Christopher Columbus is a historical figure who is celebrated as a mythical hero in the U.S. in spite of his genocidal, racist and pro-slavery legacy. As a result, a movement exists to replace the national holiday known as Columbus Day with Indigenous People’s Day.

Here is the truth about Columbus Day, explained:

1. Christopher Columbus enslaved the Taínos he encountered in the present-day Bahamas

When Columbus “discovered” the American continents in 1492 — millions lived there long before Europeans learned of their existence — he encountered a civilization of people known as the Taínos.

Don't Stop Believin' By Dr. Dinar

.Don't Stop Believin'   by Dr. Dinar

Welcome to the middle of October, 2019. The year that should've never been.

The year this GCR rollout would never see the beginning of Summer.

Let alone the end of Summer, rolling into Fall.

No way... no how.

Sure, we heard it was gonna be a slow rollout but c'mon, this is beyond ridiculous.

This slowwwwww rollout is rolling slower than a snail moonwalking backwards, uphill, in the snow.

Slow to the point of thinking it's not actually happening at all.

.How Lincoln Triumphed in an Era Even More Toxic Than Ours

.How Lincoln Triumphed in an Era Even More Toxic Than Ours

Allen Barra  Published 09.08.19 5:32AM ET

Biographer Sidney Blumenthal talks to The Daily Beast about a pre-Civil War America where Jefferson Davis demanded both Lincoln and Douglas be lynched.

Abraham Lincoln doesn’t make much of an appearance in Sidney Blumenthal’s All the Powers of Earth: The Political Life of Abraham Lincoln, Volume III, 1856-1860 until around page 180, entering his own story almost as if through a side door.

Then, with rapidly gathering momentum, he becomes the story, which is Lincoln’s masterful negotiation of the political, economic, and social currents that swept him into the White House in 1860 and inevitably took America into the Civil War.

All the Powers of Earth is the third of a proposed five volumes unique in American historical writing. focusing on the rise of Lincoln as a political animal in a national climate shaped by early 19th century giants Daniel Webster, John C. Calhoun, and Henry Clay with increasing tensions over slavery—tensions exacerbated by such men as Jefferson Davis, Stephen Douglas, and John Brown.

.A Labor Day Lesson... From a 98-Year-Old Bag Boy

.A Labor Day Lesson... From a 98-Year-Old Bag Boy

By Andy Snyder, Founder Mayward Digest

 Liberty

 What's more important... industry or education? Several states have passed laws that prohibit schools from ending summer vacation before Labor Day. Proponents argue that it's important for families to have one more weekend to spend their cash on fun.

In Virginia, it's referred to as the "Kings Dominion Law," after the amusement park that benefits greatly from the rule. Clearly, America has her priorities straight. Right?

 Why in the world do we celebrate work?

That stuff hurts.

What's Labor Day really about, anyway?
