Overcoming adversity: (Part One of Two)

Overcoming adversity: Why and How? (Part One of Two)

Adversity and Defeat: two terms no one wants to face. Why? 

Because it takes too much effort – but, unfortunately, none of us will get through life without facing these obstacles.

I outline methods here that help us deal with these uncomfortable moments in life.

Adversity and Defeat are the universe’s way of disciplining us!

A direction is provided for us to follow, but we have to be aware of the new opportunity, and stay alert instead of letting the moment get us down.

We need to set a personal initiative to force our will to achieve no matter the resistance.

We can accomplish this with pure enthusiasm and by putting our inner strength into action.  Knowledge is power but only when we use it.

The key to overcoming adversity & defeat is to keep a positive mental attitude (I can, I will).


  • Refrain from controversy
  • Set your mind to positive
  • Ask leading questions to draw people to what you want
  • Have a good laugh when irritated
  • Have gratitude for your experiences
  • Focus on the can-do, strength grows from struggles
  • There are no unprofitable experiences
  • Life is an education
  • Comment positively on others
  • Be critical about oneself
  • Do not accept anything that you do not desire
  • Stay engaged in your purpose in life

More Techniques:

If you feel sorry for yourself due to certain specific circumstances, find someone who is in a worse off position in life and understand that it could always be worse.

Choose a role-model that you look up to and emulate them, we all admire someone so why not choose the best.

Whatever the mind can conceive it can achieve.

“Your thoughts can become reality if you let them which is why we need to fight the negative and concentrate on the positive.”

Why do most people fail to live up to their potential?

Because they are told that they can’t!

We are told that we can only get so far in life or that we have to work to climb the ladder of success and that there is a system that we need to follow to get to our dreams.

These forces of culture have trained us to formulate our attitudes towards the world around us in a certain way which is why we have to train ourselves to be positive – it doesn’t come naturally.

Tune in for the conclusion!

Win victory in war & life from the chronicles of Sun-Tzu

The hardest part of reading and learning from Sun Tzu is deciphering the information.

Good news for you – I do it for you here in a quick concise easily digestible format.

How to Win

Anyone can become a soldier – even you.

Keys: Discipline; Fear; Motivation

Leaders need to give clear orders and directions.

Communication is vital.

All warfare is deception and those who win battles without fighting are truly noble.

Get double agents to work for you – this provides an intelligence advantage.

Foreknowledge and secret intelligence provides a strategic advantage which provides enhanced timing and improved momentum.


If double agents are vital for your success: Provide them with lavish rewards for their services.

We do our best when there is no retreat available; when there is no opportunity to give up.

Manager’s mange – Leaders lead.

Political context is more important than war.

Entice the opposition with bait; control their effort by providing a need.

Use deception: have the opposition focus on a decoy and when their attention is distracted implement your direct attack on the real objective.

Know your enemy and know yourself.

Avoid what is strong and attack what is weak (guerrilla warfare).

Achieve goals with minimal use of effort and resources.


These keys to winning in all situations need to be adapted to your specific situation.

When used correctly, they are the laws of winning that have found no enemy that could overcome these advantages.

This has been a condensed identification of ancient tactics that have provided success for the greatest winners and stood the test of time
and showed victoriously in multiple situations.

The messages above have been interpreted from the great text,
Sun Tzu: Art of War.

Behaviors of a Leader

Are you a leader or do you desire to be a leader?

What qualifies a leader?

Do you fit the mold?

These ideas below are modified from John C. Maxwell’s book, 21 Laws of Leadership.

Here is a list of behaviors that are most effective and reminiscent of a leader.

  1. Lead by example
  2. Provide a worthy vision that others will follow (imagination)
  3. Never accept defeat and do anything to avoid losing (other than cheating)
  4. Rise to the occasion during crisis
  5. Stay positive
  6. Strategically prioritize
  7. Have an instinct that predicts opportunity
  8. Sincere enthusiasm
  9. Proper etiquette
  10. Inspire others to realize their potential
  11. Charisma
  12. Constant development of professional & personal skills
  13. Ability to transfer knowledge
  14. Understand your limitations and the range of your potential
  15. Have an ability to influence others (A call to action)
  16. Understand the environmental, social, and cultural dynamics affecting your leadership direction
  17. Add value to those that follow you (enhance their standards of living)
  18. Keen ability to read people and situations
  19. Positive attitude and gain the attraction of other positive people

Finally, and most importantly:

  1. Must possess trust, integrity, respect for others, & consistency.

To be a leader – you don’t need to possess all of these traits but you must work toward each one to become the best leader.

Make Money in the Market today for Tomorrow

Headline: Stock Market Sale! Stocks crash & burn!
Bad for those invested at the peaks but great for you if you’re looking to invest for retirement.
 What do you do? Why?
Buy companies with strong consistent earnings that have large dividends.
The FED said they will keep rates low and mortgage refinancing is at an all-time low.
Bonds are stuck providing a low percentage for a while according to the FED report.
 Do you have bonds?
Cash them out and buy stocks with large dividends for retirement.
 Value Key: Reinvest the dividend over time and the return will outperform the S&P 500.
Stock prices are based on earnings and the fluctuations are based on short term news that traders take advantage of to make large amounts of money in a short period of time.
This is not a retirement option.
 The good news for you
Great stocks are at a discount right now.
 But what if stocks continue to fall?
The stocks will lose value in the short term but when the bad news affecting stock price fades – stocks will return to their earnings price but the value here is in the dividend.
 What is a dividend?
 Short answer: A company pays a quarterly fee for you to own their stock. Anything over 4% provides downside protection for a stock which means the stock will not plummet because there will always be a buyer for the dividend.
 What is special about a dividend that protects the stock price of a company from falling?
 Short answer: The lower the stock price goes – The higher the dividend becomes,
(i.e. Stock $40, Div. 4% – stock falls to $30, div. 5%) = higher dividend larger cash return on stock.
 Tax tip: A dividend is a passive income and the IRS requires you to only pay 15% tax on earnings instead of 35% (nice deal) – if you own an organization then you only have to pay 15% on 20% of your earnings (sweet).

Short List of Recommended Dividend Stocks

 Johnson & Johnson
Kinder Morgan & Partners
And a few other high yielding stocks that can be researched at: http://finance.yahoo.com/
Good luck developing your wealth.

Free Internships!

What is your worth?

Are you interested in applying for an internship position?

Well, did you ever look at it from the organizations point of view?

If you were the company President  – would you want employees that you didn’t have to pay a salary?

I think that if you lack experience then an internship is a great way to gain inside knowledge about the field your planning to enter,

but if you have experience, then the internship process is “simply insulting”.

You spend money to travel and eat as well as your time to do work for an organization that is profiting from your efforts.

It seems like all job openings are for internship positions. Why not? If everyone is willing to work for free then why offer salaried positions?

Too much risk! Bad economy!

If you had an organization, wouldn’t it be great to have a 3 month rotation of Free new talent?

News about organizational income:

The debt crisis –oh no!

They talk about the economy going under and not enough money for jobs.

Here is the truth: Organizations are making giant profits because of technology and globalization.

Earnings are at an all time high!  They have plenty of money to staff more jobs but there is no incentive to hire.

Why?  We will work for free!

Fast Money with Stock Options

Stock OptionsHow do they work and how can I use them to make fast money?

Stock Options are derivatives which take advantage of certain principles that can make us large amounts of money with minimum input in small amounts of time. Basically, one stock option allows you to have control over 100 shares of stock.

  •  You have to decide if you will select a call option or a put option. A call is an educated guess that the stock will increase in the short-term and a put is an educated guess that the stock will decrease in the short-term.

The key to options is quite simple – buy deep in the money options.

What does that mean?
Spend more money to acquire an option that is closer to the current value.
(Quick tip: You’re not chancing your money more so by spending a larger amount to get an option closer to the current price but, rather, quite the opposite).

The key to not losing your investment is to research the company you’re interested in by understanding their current analysis (http://finance.yahoo.com/) and when you are certain that the value will either go up or down substantially in a short-time – go for it.

(Quick tip: learn from the best: if you lose 10% of your investment – pull out/take the loss. You got in at the wrong time and
misjudged the opportunity. Live to gain another day!)

My recommendation: Buy a call option deep in the money with a two month window on a company that you
understand and that has a greater earning potential which will increase the stock value in the short-term – (i.e. Amazon, Baidu, Apple)
If you would like a deeper understanding of this concept – post your questions here and I will provide answers to clear up any confusion.
The great thing about options is that they are confusing so not everyone can use them and the people who understand their value can make large amounts of money by playing the system.
