Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

I just watched this incredible film and it was fun, thrilling, and a powerful movie...worth a large pop corn.  I was a little familiar with the terms and how do things go around in the stock market and the trading business since I used to work in a Forex Trading Firm.  I liked the movie very much and I've learned new things from watching it.

Best lines:
"You're generation is a fucked up generation, the generation of NINJAs. No Income No Job and Assets." - Gordon Gekko. (It just show how job security is heading straight to oblivion and a lot of people are not financially literate)

"Insanity is doing the same things over and over again, and expecting a different result" - Jacob Moore (If you want to have a good future, then do other things besides your JOB)

Popcorns, Zuckerberg, and M. J. Fox

I guess we all know about the movie The Social Network, the movie that tells the story of the man behind the website that changed the world.  We are excited to find out what are the good and the bad things that happened in the life of Mark Zuckerberg before, during, and after making Facebook.  We might think that the movie is the truth and what really happened in real life. Now, Mark Zuckerberg has finally spoken up.  According to him, the movie is far from reality.  From the movie, it shows that Facebook was created out of Zuckerberg's anger for a girl who dumped him.  It depicted his anger for this girl that gave him much of the idea in making this networking site.  In real life, it never happened according to Zuckerberg and to those people who know him; and according to one, he (Zuckerberg) is the least angry person he knows.  Zuckerberg didn't speak up when the movie made him look like a jerk, but when someone shows the world that Facebook was created from that made-up story, I guess it's normal for him to be disappointed.

I saw a trailer of the 80s hit movie, and one of my favorite movies of all time, Back To The Future. The trailer is nostalgic, but then it seemed to be different.  Then I realized that it were the same casts but they are older!  Then I found out that it was made for an awards and they did it for a reunion.  All of the casts were wearing the same style during the movie.  It was soooo cooool!!

I read that the typhoon Juan is the strongest typhoon in the whole world that struck this year.  It's the strongest in the Philippines since 2006.  Damn....

Article From Bo Sanchez - Good Read

Have You Ever Felt This Pain Of Wanting To Help Others But You Couldn’t?

My 85-year old mother lives a comfortable life.  That’s because I give her an allowance each month.  She also knows that if she needs more money, for anything whatsoever (“Bo, I want to go bungee jumping” or “I want to go crocodile hunting”), she knows she can call me up anytime.

Imagine for a moment if I just had a Job (which you know means, “Just Over Broke”).  Then she wouldn’t be very comfortable.  She’d probably have to sell her house.  And she’d have to live like how other old people in our country live—dependent on their SSS or GSIS Pension.

Thank God her son is generous and good-looking and a little bit crazy too.

Change Your Financial Habits

A lot of people want to help their parents.

And siblings.
And friends.

And the poor around them.

But many times, they can’t.

Because they don’t have enough.
It’s a terrible feeling.  I’ve been there.  I’ve experienced that pain in my gut—and never once liked it.
But friend, I don’t experience that feeling anymore.
Because I’ve changed my financial habits.
I can help my mother because I can. I run multiple small businesses that are earning very well.

Here’s the truth: People are rich or poor because of their financial habits. There are only two kinds of financial habits: Poor man’s habits and Rich man’s habits.

Years ago, I’ve thrown away the Poor man’s habits from my life. And I’ve learned the Rich man’s habits—wonderful habits that anyone can learn. (These are thought patterns, mindsets, and attitudes that are essential to change your financial life.)

I’d like to teach these powerful habits to you.

Because I want you to experience what I experience now—the ability to help the people I love.’t/

Celebrate Express

Jump, shout, dance, treat yourself, these are some of the ways we celebrate things. When do we celebrate? Most of the times we celebrate during the important events in our lives; these are during birthdays, graduations, Christmas, promotions, anniversaries, and weddings. It is almost automatic in our system to celebrate in those memorable occasions. But should we limit it to those only?

Our successes are also important episodes in our lives that we should celebrate. When we do something good, or we finished a goal, and maybe achieved something, celebrating is a good way to imprint a positive point in our life for our subconscious mind to remember. In celebrating, we create the pictures and feelings of happiness, and our minds only remember pictures and feelings. We inclined to happiness during celebrations, thus, making us healthier and more optimistic. We should also celebrate the successes of others because our mind can’t distinguish if it is ours or not, as long as we create the pictures and the feelings, they would process that it is our success, according to journal of psychology.

So next time when we think we’ve done something worth celebrating, we should celebrate. When other people have their own successes and achievements, we should celebrate it with them. When it is already properly imprinted in our subconscious, we will attract success in our lives naturally.

Start thinking what are the things you’ve done or happened today and bring out the celebration cakes! or maybe you can book for the celebration hotel☺

Business Object

They said that if you ask Filipinos if they want to have a business, they will always say “yes”. That should not be the question if that’s the case, it should be, “why aren’t you still in business?”. If you ask them, what kind of business do they want to have, these are the usual things they would say: computer shop, Laundromat, franchise or make own cart business, restaurant, small convenience store, and gym. Little do they know that owning these micro/small business is not considered as ‘businesses’ at all. In the four quadrants given by Robert Kiyosaki (Employee, Self-Employed/Professional, Business Owner, Investor), these only belong to self-employed. Why? Because being in a small business only makes you your own boss but not an entrepreneur; you can’t just leave your business when you want to go on a vacation. The reason is simple, you are the only businessman in those kinds of businesses, and other people are just employees. They do not care about your business. When you are in a big business however, you are in a big conglomerate with a number of businessmen as your partners; these people are stakeholders that would care about the business because they also own the business. This means, you can retire. It’s a good way to start and use it as an experience for later when you are ready to run your own big business. Sad to say that a lot of Filipino people does not know these facts, while some although they want to have a big business, they don’t know how.

Big business is the kind of business that uses the power of leverage, and this will give you retirement because it gives you the residual income. There are three big businesses; one is putting up your own company and anticipating the ‘big’ involve, big capital, big system effort, and big risk. The second one is franchise, I’m not talking about the cart franchise, I’m talking about the likes of McDonalds, Jollibee, etc. The only problem in this business is the capital because you are already buying the system and the brand so the system effort and the risk are lowered tremendously. The last one is the Network Distribution/Distribution/Virtual Franchise business. These businesses reduce all the ‘big’ in the business except for the big income that you’ll get. It is a distribution system that uses complete business partnerships and you can start at a part-time basis/ home based business if you are an employee. You can use their utilities, have complete trainings and company benefits, and create your own franchise. The sad thing though is that the system of this business was copied by a lot of scam companies around the world, so you better do some research before partnering with a company. Make sure that the company is listed in the New York Stock Exchange.

I also suggest that if you want to run your own business someday or in starting a business, you have to know the requirements; first is you have to love sales and marketing, then you have to read books, you also have to have a positive attitude at all times, start practicing the use of business cards, and lastly practice as soon as possible to learn from the experiences.

Excitement Urination

What is excitement? Is it only for kids? Does everybody enjoys the feeling of excitement?

Remember when we were still in school? It was the happiest moments in our lives, we are full of joy and thrill, and we look forward to the years to come. We visualize the things that are bound to come to our lives after graduation. When we graduate, we have high hopes and big dreams that a beautiful life will come to us. As we grow old, we start to dilapidate, it is not that we lose our dreams; we simply become “realistic”. We tend to lower down what we want because we start to lose hope when we realize that we are not getting anywhere. We lose happiness and joy , and the drive to strive harder. Why? Because we simply lose our excitement.

Excitement is an essential part of our life, and it is required to live our life fruitfully and enjoyable. Excitement gives us the overwhelming happiness, pleasure and success. The feeling of being alive and being full of life is a result of being excited all the time. It has been said that if you want to be happy, you have to do good, if you want to be happy then you have to be successful. But according to the book I’ve read, psycho-cybernetics, it should be the other way around. You have to be happy first before you can do good things, and you have to be happy before you can be successful. And I agree.

But what drives excitement? If you notice, excitement is something that comes from what we are looking forward to, may it be a person, or an occasion, etc. The craze or the obsession of what you want to have or happen, or simply what you want to do that drives your excitement. In simple way of saying it, passion drives our excitement. If we are passionate of something that we do because we want a particular result, we tend to become excited about it and, hence, the joy and happiness.

We must be excited every day, before we sleep and after waking up. We have to be thankful every day because a new day brings new hope in our lives. We should be giggling and shaking with enthusiasm, just like when urinating, we shake uncontrollably (I’m not sure if that also happens to women hehe). The excitement should flow from us towards the things that what we do and the things we believe in. I call it, the excitement urination.
