Do You Have Too Little Stress?

by Robin J. Elliott on September 15, 2014

A man bought a truck in the fall and used it to haul firewood. One evening it started snowing heavily, and the truck’s wheels were spinning and he couldn’t more an inch. It was getting dark and the temperature was dropping. Instead of sitting in the truck feeling sorry for himself, he got out and [...]

A Little Humour from John Cleese

by Robin J. Elliott on September 9, 2014

  ALERTS TO THREATS IN 2013 EUROPE From JOHN CLEESE The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been [...]

I’m Not Ready Yet / When I’m Ready

by Robin J. Elliott on September 5, 2014

Napoleon Hill said more men were destroyed and futures lost through illicit sex. I think the “I’m not ready yet” response to life’s challenges, opportunities, and solutions runs a very close second. Ayn Rand put it this way: “I can accept anything, except what seems to be the easiest for most people: the half-way, the [...]

Pride Comes Before the Fall

by Robin J. Elliott on August 25, 2014

Confidence is not arrogance. So when Rush Limbaugh, for whom I actually have a lot of respect, calls the American Health Care System “The greatest healthcare system in the world,” he joins those who have no problem calling every police force in America “the greatest police force in the world” – confidence turned into extreme [...]

“Popular” Won’t Make You Happy or Rich

by Robin J. Elliott on August 21, 2014

George Orwell wrote, all those years ago, “In times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” Today, that is more true than ever before. And Hollywood and the ruling powers in many countries are making sure that the truth is ostracized and belittled. If you’re catering to the mindless masses of robots, [...]

Killing the Vampires in Your Life

by Robin J. Elliott on August 20, 2014

“Professional or semi-professional vampire hunters played some part in the vampire beliefs of the Balkans. They were usually either born on Saturday (then called Sabbatarians,) or the offspring of a vampire and a woman (typically his widow), called a dhampir in Romani or a vampirovi? in Serbian. It was also believed that someone born on [...]

Why Your Debts Don’t Have to Be Such a Problem

by Robin J. Elliott on August 18, 2014

We tend to focus on how much debt we have, don’t were? Unless you’re one of those geniuses who only focus on how much money they have over at the end of the month. They don’t see debt – they see monthly payments. I’m not talking about them – I’m talking about how we see [...]

Linear Thinking Prevents Wealth

by Robin J. Elliott on August 16, 2014

Linear thinking will hurt you in today’s fast changing world, for it is extremely limiting. Linear thinking goes, “I sell a product or service, and I make a commission or a profit. The more I sell, the more I make.” Worse, still, are those who sell their time, because time is a limited resource. Those [...]

The Gathering Storm

by Robin J. Elliott on August 5, 2014

In 2006, I wrote in this Blog, “In my library at home, I have Winston Churchill’s Volume 1 of ‘The Second World War’, given to my Grandfather by my Dad in 1948. It’s titled, ‘The Gathering Storm,’ and the theme of this Volume is: ‘How the English-speaking peoples, through their unwisdom, carelessness, and good nature, [...]

The Downward Spiral

by Robin J. Elliott on July 27, 2014

To many, the “Politically Correct” western nations have sold their collective, proverbial souls for rancid bowls of poisoned soup. And it’s not only about the invasion of parasites posing as refugees, immigrants, and multicultural friends. It’s not just the steep decline of Capitalism and the ushering in or Satism and Socialism, either; the future of [...]
