How To Make Money Tips / Warren Buffet's Financial Tips
« on: May 15, 2018, 11:04:45 PM »
Warren Buffet's Financial Tips
 

Warren Buffet is often ranked among the top 5 richest men in the world. His fortune is estimated at around $50 billion, 99% of which he intends to give to charity after his death. This self-made billionaire often gives advice to the top leaders of the world. Let's take a look at some of his wise words:
 
On reputation
It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you'll do things differently.

On his most basic rules
Rule No.1: Never lose money.
Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1.

On sources of income
Never count on a single income. Make investments to create additional sources of revenue.

9e1f0622-efdf-40c2-b08a-94b4453c4bdf - Show Posts - balong

On spending
If you buy things you don't need, you'll soon have to sell things you do need.

On saving
Don't save what you have left after spending, but spend what you have left after saving.

On taking risks
Never measure the depth of a river with both legs.


On honesty
Honesty is a very expensive thing, don't expect it from cheap people.

On inheritance
A rich man must leave his children enough to do anything, but not enough to do nothing.

On ideas
You do things when the opportunities come along. I've had periods in my life when I've had a bundle of ideas come along, and I've had long dry spells. If I get an idea next week, I'll do something. If not, I won't do a damn thing.


On the trickle theory
The rich are always going to say that, you know, just give us more money and we'll go out and spend more and then it will all trickle down to the rest of you. But that has not worked the last 10 years, and I hope the American public is catching on.

On investing in the future
Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.

On habits
Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.
 
On becoming rich
I always knew I was going to be rich. I don't think I ever doubted it for a minute.


On learning from betters
It's better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behavior is better than yours and you'll drift in that direction. 

On price and value
Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.

On taxes for the rich
If anything, taxes for the lower and middle class and maybe even the upper middle class should even probably be cut further. But I think that people at the high end - people like myself - should be paying a lot more in taxes. We have it better than we've ever had it.

On challenges
I don't look to jump over 7-foot bars: I look around for 1-foot bars that I can step over.

On being rich
Of the billionaires I have known, money just brings out the basic traits in them. If they were jerks before they had money, they are simply jerks with a billion dollars.

On risk
Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.


On Wall Street
Wall Street is the only place that people ride to work in a Rolls-Royce to get advice from those who take the subway.

On how he invests
I never attempt to make money on the stock market. I buy on the assumption that they could close the market the next day and not reopen it for five years.

On hindsight
In the business world, the rear-view mirror is always clearer than the windshield.

On Ponzi schemes
Only when the tide goes out do you discover who's been swimming naked.

On learning from history
If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians.

On healing the economy
Economic medicine that was previously meted out by the cupful has recently been dispensed by the barrel. These once-unthinkable dosages will almost certainly bring on unwelcome after-effects. Their precise nature is anyone's guess, though one likely consequence is an onslaught of inflation.

How To Make Money Tips / 6 Powerful Money Spells That Really Work!
« on: May 04, 2018, 03:57:06 PM »
My grandmother has been interested in magic and the Law of Attraction for a number of years. She could revive wilting flower just by using positive words as well as lower blood sugar levels with the help of creative visualization.

She knew that the money is just a flow of energy similar to our life, and always managed to attract as much money as she wanted. She revealed her “money mind tricks” a few years ago that you might find useful if you are looking for more money or just for inspiration, so read on!

money-spells-that-really-work - Show Posts - balong
The full moon phase is the best time for magical spells.

The magic wallet
If you truly desire to keep a constant stream of money in your life, get a brown or red (ruby red) wallet. These colors tend to attract more money, have the same vibrational frequencies as money, and have, in terms of money, a very positive effect to keep cash flowing consistently into your wallet.

The color red in color psychology means tremendous power, promoting ambition, leadership and passion, while brown color represents nature and everything associated with nature, serenity, perfection, and sense of security.

A spell of mirroring
My grandmother called this “a spell of mirroring” and even though it’s a very simple trick, it works like a charm. The point of this magic trick is to put a small mirror into your wallet (between the banknotes), so the number of your banknotes will multiply.

Never leave a mirror in an empty wallet without banknotes, as this may cause a shortage of money.

Watch your thoughts while paying
What’s on your mind when standing at the counter and paying for goods? Have you ever thought about it? If you feel uncomfortable because you are giving away your money, it’s time to make a huge change.

Every time you pay for goods – be it at a petrol station, supermarket or at a pharmacy, say to yourself silently: “Dear money, tell your friends far and wide to come back to me in a week/two weeks/month in three times larger quantities.” 

Say it to yourself and then let it go. Always pay with love and never regret anything, because by giving you are also receiving. This is a very powerful spell that I use every day, and I see that money is actually coming back to me in such quantity as I imagined.

Learn to speak with money
There is nothing new under the sun that money is just energy. And because money is energy, you should treat them how you wanted to be treated. In other words, love money and money will love you. Talk about money and people who have become rich in a good way. Do not try to slander anyone or envy wealth, which these people gained. Envy is the biggest hurdle to financial independence, as well as doubts or incorrect behavior towards money.


Take a moment to sit down. Hold in your hands your highest dollar bill and start talking. Tell your money how much you care of them, and how you feel when having a large amounts of money in your wallet. Simply act as if they were your friends. Talking about or to money is one of the great taboos of our culture, so break this barrier and make a change!

And besides all this, we should remember that words have tremendous power – both written and spoken word.

The Extraordinary Power of Visualization
Visualization is extremelly powerful and effective when harnessed and used correctly. Every day before going to sleep, close your eyes and imagine that you go through a big white palace with blue walls and floor.

Walk down a long corridor until you come into the large hall where is the large wooden chest with your name. Open it and and start collecting money. Imagine that the bottom of this chest is endless, and continue collecting money from the chest until you fall asleep.

The magic with birch bark
Obtain white birch bark and write on it your desire. You can use a pen and pencil; bark material is very similar to paper. When it comes to money, write on it the exact amount you desire. Then put this birch bark on a stone or any other place that can’t catch fire and ignite it.

Once your birch bark starts to burn, imagine you already have your desired amount of money in your wallet/bank account. Once the bark burns, say thank you three times, and let it go. The Universe will always find a way to deliver it.

For best results, use this spell during the full moon period (full moon lends great power to manifesting it).

Philippines’ city of the future: New Clark
Project will be nation's first environmentally friendly, disaster-resilient metropolis
BY KIERAN GUILBERT
THOMSON REUTERS FOUNDATION

MAR 30, 2018

CLARK, PHILIPPINES – He may never set foot in New Clark City, but taxi driver Edgard Labitag hopes the Philippines’ first green, disaster-resilient, high-tech metropolis will ease the pressure on Manila — meaning fewer hours stuck in traffic and more time with his children.

At the wheel on a sweltering Sunday afternoon, the 42-year-old bemoaned another shift spent inching along the infamously congested streets of the capital city of 13 million people.

“Crowding, pollution and traffic — this is what people say about Manila,” he said, gesturing at the gridlock.

“But luckily the government has a plan . . . and (President Rodrigo) Duterte is the right man to see it through.”

That plan is New Clark, a 9,450-hectare (23,350-acre) city that government officials say will be bigger than Manhattan by the time it is completed in 25 to 30 years, with an expected population of more than 1.2 million.

The aim is to build a city equipped to deal with climate shocks in one of the world’s most cyclone-affected regions, and to promote healthy, eco-friendly and sustainable living by putting nature at the heart of development, urban experts say.

Reflecting a rising trend from Japan and India to the United States, New Clark seeks to challenge conventional urban planning by uniting government, developers, business and the public — and proving that green and resilient cities can be cost-effective.

“The objective is not simply to build a disaster-resilient city, but rather a successful, innovative and economically competitive city that is also disaster-resilient,” said Benjamin Preston, a researcher at RAND Corp., a global think tank.

New Clark is still in its infancy, but Duterte is fast-tracking the project as the Philippines, one of Asia’s fastest-growing economies, seeks to boost spending on infrastructure to create jobs and attract more foreign firms.

Yet even as the government races to build New Clark and tackle Manila’s booming population, density and congestion, it must plan the new city with care and avoid past mistakes, says the state-run Bases Conversion and Development Authority.

“We need to strike a balance between fast-paced development that maximizes value for the private sector, and protecting open spaces and making the city walkable, green and resilient,” said Vince Dizon, president of the BCDA, which oversees the project.

“Traditional development cannot overwhelm or overpower the area,” he said. “For New Clark City, here lies the challenge.”

Green agenda
Situated about 100 km north of Manila in Tarlac province near Clark International Airport, one of the country’s busiest hubs, New Clark will be home to several government departments, an agro-industrial park and a huge sports complex.

Yet despite the range of planned infrastructure, only a third of the $14 billion city’s land will be developed, with two-thirds reserved for green spaces and agriculture, the government said.

Houston and nearby Singapore have provided inspiration on how to plan the city in an integrated manner where water management and green spaces are linked closely to all urban systems, according to the Dutch architect Matthijs Bouw.

By focusing on nature and allowing plenty of open space along rivers, for example, New Clark can benefit beyond protecting itself from floods, said Bouw, who has worked on the master plan for the city with the government.

“Putting green areas on the agenda not only helps with water storage and drainage, but creates community spaces and guides street design in a way that benefits pedestrians and bikes . . . so social resilience also gets strengthened,” Bouw said.

Yet the rapid pace of development and large number of actors working on different structures and systems means some aspects could “fall through the cracks, resilience-wise,” he warned.

Making the case
Another challenge in designing and developing such a city is changing the mindsets of officials used to traditional planning approaches, who may be wary of going green, urban experts say.

“How do you do this in a regional context in Asia where there is massive and widespread corruption, and where elected representatives change in the short term?” asked Harini Nagendra, an author and academic based in southern India.

The answer: convince politicians and bureaucrats that making a city stronger and safer against modern-day threats will not slow down development, and will save their governments money in the long run, said Oesha Thakoerdin of the Asian Development Bank, which is backing the New Clark project.

Economists at RAND are seeking to demonstrate the social, environmental and economic gains from building resilience and are developing a business case to prove that green urban planning is not only an option for wealthy economies.

“Increasingly we are seeing middle-income countries realize that planning and investing in green areas in cities is critical for their development — and cost-competitive,” Thakoerdin said.

Infrastructure gap
Urban experts say New Clark City could not only set a shining example for Southeast Asia in terms of balancing rapid economic development with social and environmental policies, but may also mark a turning point closer to home.

“(It) has the potential to take pressure off Manila so that Manila can also invest in building a more resilient future,” said Lauren Sorkin, the Asia-Pacific director for 100 Resilient Cities (100RC), a network backed by The Rockefeller Foundation.

Manila is one of the world’s densest cities, with 14,500 people per square kilometer — almost triple London’s level — U.N. data show. Congestion could cost the capital $155 million a day in lost productivity by 2030, a Japanese government study has found.

Cities across the Philippines generate more than 70 percent of gross domestic product, while the percentage of urban dwellers is set to rise by 2050 to 65 percent — representing 102 million people — up from 45 percent today, the World Bank says.

While New Clark has been hailed for its vision, experts warn that the push for resilience in Asia may be sacrificed in the rush to invest the $1.7 trillion per year through 2030 the ADB estimates is required to keep up with the region’s infrastructure demand.

“We’re facing a huge infrastructure gap . . . and a rapidly growing urban population,” Sorkin said.

“It’s going to be enormously difficult to make up deficits, and plan for and meet emerging needs at the same time.”

Jeff Bezos                                                                      Henry Sy

With an estimated net worth of $20 billion, SM founder Henry Sy Sr. remains the richest among the tycoons from the Philippines who made it to Forbes magazine’s latest annual list of the wealthiest people on the planet.

Forbes said the 12 richest Filipinos had a combined fortune of $55.6 billion (about P2.9 trillion), nearly a fifth of the domestic economy.

Jeff Bezos is still the richest person on the planet with $112 billion, double the combined wealth of 12 billionaires from the Philippines, as the value of his e-commerce listed firm Amazon surged 59 percent in the last 12 months.

A record 2,208 billionaires around the world made it to Forbes’ 32nd annual ranking. Altogether they are worth a record $9.1 trillion, up 18 percent from a year ago, according to the March 6 article posted by the US magazine.

An Oxfam report found that the world’s richest 1 percent received 82 percent of the wealth generated in 2017, while the poorest of humanity got nothing.

The growing inequality has led to the rise of populist leaders, including US President Donald Trump.

52nd wealthiest in world Sy’s net worth of $20 billion is over three times larger than the fortune of the next richest tycoon from the Philippines, as his net worth surged 57 percent from that of last year.

Globally, Sy who is turning 94 this year, is ranked 52nd richest, slightly richer than Elon Musk, who founded electric car maker Tesla, solar energy giant Solar City and spacecraft-maker SpaceX. Musk is valued at $19.9 billion.

Sy’s group controls three of the most valuable companies on the Philippine stock market: SM Investments Corp., SM Prime Holdings and BDO Unibank.

11 other PH tycoons

SM Investments and SM Prime have both breached the P1-trillion market capitalization mark and are the first two companies to reach this milestone.

On the Forbes list are 11 other Filipino tycoons.

JG Summit founder John Gokongwei Jr., 91, is the second wealthiest person from the Philippines with a net worth of $5.8 billion, ranking 305th globally.

Universal Robina Corp., Cebu Pacific, Robinsons Land Corp. and JG Petrochemicals Corp. are among his group’s crown jewels.

Enrique Razon Jr.—who has established a global footprint through International Container Terminal Services Inc. and is building an integrated gaming empire through Bloomberry Resorts Corp.—is valued by Forbes at $4.9 billion, earning him the 404th slot globally.

At 58, he is the youngest billionaire from the Philippines.

Tobacco magnate Lucio Tan, 83, is 441st on the global list with a net worth of $4.7 billion. He is also into banking (Philippine National Bank), aviation (Philippine Airlines) and liquor (Tanduay and Asia Brewery) businesses.

Tony Tan Caktiong, chair and founder of Jollibee Foods Corp., is next on the list of Filipino tycoons with $4 billion, ranking 550th globally.

George Ty, founder of the Metrobank group and who built a market-leading automotive business in the Philippines with Toyota, has an estimated net worth of $3.9 billion. The 85-year-old tycoon ranked 572nd globally.

As rich as Trump

Manny Villar Jr., 68, who focused on growing his real estate-based empire after losing the 2010 presidential election, is valued at $3 billion. He ranked 791st worldwide.

Among the listed companies under his leadership are Vista Land & Lifescapes, Starmalls and Golden Haven.

Villar is almost as rich as businessman-turned-US President Trump, who is valued at $3.1 billion.

Forbes said Trump was one notable loser in this year’s rankings, as his fortune fell by $400 million since March 2017, now 766th in the world, down from 544th.

Andrew Tan, 65, founder of the Megaworld group, ranked 887th globally with $2.7 billion.

Ang valued at $2.5B

Ramon S. Ang, president and controlling stockholder of San Miguel Corp., has an estimated value of $2.5 billion. The 64-year-old tycoon ranked 965th globally.

Insurance and car dealership mogul Robert Coyiuto Jr., 65, has a net worth of $1.4 billion and ranked 1,650th globally.

SMC chair Eduardo Cojuangco, 82, is still among the world’s richest with an estimated net worth of $1.3 billion even after he sold  a big chunk of SMC to Ang in 2012.

Roberto Ongpin, 81, still has a formidable fortune estimated at $1.1 billion. After selling out of gaming technology venture Philweb Corp., he is focused on upscale property developer Alphaland Corp.

Fewer Filipinos made it to this year’s list compared to last year, when 14 made it to the roster.

2nd richest in world

Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates is the second richest in the world with $90 billion.

Warren Buffet of Berkshire Hathaway is the third richest with $84 billion while Bernard Arnault, CEO of the world’s largest luxury goods conglomerate LVMH of France, ranked fourth with $72 billion.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is the world’s fifth richest, with $71 billion.

Jazz in position to claim 3 seed after beating Warriors
By JOHN COON | Associated Press

Apr. 11, 2018 3:08 AM ET

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah has a chance to write one more chapter to an improbable comeback story.

The Jazz put themselves in position to claim the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference after cruising to a 119-79 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night. Utah did not waste time taking control of the game and led by double digits over the final 3 1/2 quarters.

Donovan Mitchell scored 22 points and set an NBA rookie record for 3-pointers. Mitchell went 4 of 5 behind the arc and has made 186 3-pointers this season, breaking Damian Lillard's record for a first-year player.

''I am actually thrilled for him that he did that,'' Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. ''He has been our guy, offensively, all year who we have relied on. He's unselfish, which makes the guys around him better.''

Derrick Favors added 16 points and nine rebounds. Jonas Jerebko scored 14 points, and Rudy Gobert and Ricky Rubio added 13 points apiece for the Jazz.

Utah (48-33) won its sixth straight game and went 3-1 in the season series with Golden State. Now the Jazz are tied with Portland in the standings and can claim the No. 3 seed with a win over the Blazers on Wednesday night.

''What makes it a story is no one expected it,'' Mitchell said. ''But the thing I've said all year is we knew we were going to be good. I don't think we knew we were going to be 3 seed good, but we knew we were going to be good.''

It is a surprising position for a Utah team that lost last season's top scorers Gordon Hayward and George Hill to free agency over the summer and was nine games below .500 at one point in mid-January.

The Jazz believed all along they could climb back into the playoff picture and make serious noise in the Western Conference.

''Guys took it upon themselves to just get better in the offseason,'' Favors said. ''We just stuck with the plan throughout the whole season and right now we're fighting for the third spot. Gotta give credit to everybody on this team.''

Even with a loss to the Blazers, Utah is assured of falling no lower than the No. 5 seed.

Klay Thompson scored 23 points and Kevin Durant added 13 for the Warriors, who finished the season at 58-24. Golden State, the No. 2 seed in the West, never led in the game and shot just 35 percent from the field.

The 40-point loss is the largest margin of defeat for the Warriors under coach Steve Kerr.

''We need the competitive spirit,'' Kerr said. ''We need the juice. We need the joy, and we haven't had much of that. So we got to get our minds right.''

Utah dominated on both ends of the court during the first quarter. The Jazz used an 18-3 run to stake out a 24-9 lead. Rubio took a steal in for a layup and Favors scored on a pair of dunks to ignite the run.

Mitchell scored on back-to-back possessions and then followed with a 3-pointer to help push the lead to 33-14. The rookie totaled 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting in the first quarter alone.

Golden State appeared it might rally after Durant scored back-to-back baskets to cut Utah's lead to 35-22. That's as close as the Warriors got. Jerebko and Royce O' Neale combined to score three straight baskets to push the lead to 43-24.

''We got to be better,'' Durant said. ''We couldn't really get a rhythm or a groove out there with the way we go down so early. We started pressing a bit and trying to get it all back at once.''

Utah led by as many as 45 points in the second half. The Jazz took their largest lead at 103-58 when Jerebko buried a pair of 3-pointers and Dante Exum added a dunk to polish off a 10-2 run to open the fourth quarter.

TIP-INS

Warriors: Thompson and Durant combined to shoot just 14 of 39 from the field. ... Golden State scored a season-low 33 first-half points. ... The Warriors fell by an average margin of 29.6 points in three losses to the Jazz this season.

Jazz: Utah scored 25 points off 16 turnovers. ... The Jazz had a 19-6 edge on fastbreak points and outscored Golden State 62-38 in the paint.

HOODIE STATEMENT

As the Rookie of the Year debate between Mitchell and Ben Simmons continues to heat up, the smack talk is following suit. Mitchell wore a black hoodie into Vivint Smart Home Arena before tipoff on Tuesday that contained the dictionary definition of a rookie on the front.

It offered a lighthearted jab at Simmons' status as a ''redshirt rookie'' after he spent what would have been his original rookie season sidelined with an injury. Adidas approached Mitchell about wearing the hoodie and he went along with the joke.

''We just wanted to all have fun with it,'' Mitchell said. ''That's all it is, having fun and just enjoying it.''

Mitchell reiterated he's not worried about the award and would rather see Gobert and Snyder earn Defensive Player of the Year and Coach of the Year honors respectively.

QUOTEABLE

''We need to put things into perspective. When I was a rookie, we only won 23 games. And now some people say winning 58 is kind of a down year. That's incredible.'' -Thompson, on Golden State finishing 58-24 in the regular season.

« on: March 17, 2018, 11:12:35 PM »
Your ability to be successful and happy is highly dependent on your ability to make clear decisions and solve problems in life in the best way you can. This is a guide detailing three distinct methods of being able to solve problems to the best of your ability:

Method 1: Approaching the Problem

1. Define the problem

It’s important that you find the real cause of a problem and define it, rather than just looking at the symptoms.

•   An example of this is a constantly messy room. It could be messy all the time because you need more storage, not because you’re an inherently messy person.
•   Be clear when you’re attempting to define the problem. You can achieve this by being as honest with yourself as possible.
•   Is the problem real or self-created? Is it something that you need to solve or is it something that you want? Put things into perspective to navigate through the problem-solving process.

Inspiration & Hope / King Solomon’s Ring - A Short Story about Life
« on: March 12, 2018, 03:19:51 AM »
One day, King Solomon, the wisest man in the world, wanted to test the integrity and wisdom of his faithful servant. The King summoned his servant and asked him to carry out a task, knowing that it could not be completed. King Solomon said: "The Feast of Tabernacles is in 6 months, and I would like to wear a magic ring for the holiday. Any person who is sad and looks at the ring will become happy and any happy person who looks at the ring will become sad.”

The faithful servant immediately went on the journey in the search of the mysterious ring. A month passed, two months passed, and the servant, who visited every jeweler and peddler in the kingdom, remained without the ring. Two more months passed, and the servant reached the limits of the kingdom, but he had yet to find anyone who had heard of such a magical ring.

Over time, the faithful servant became frustrated. With all his might he wanted to fulfill his master's wish, but no matter how hard he tried, he could not find the mysterious ring. He was depressed and almost gave up, until one day before the Feast of Tabernacles, he arrived at the small workshop of a poor jeweler in a small village.

The servant, who had nothing to lose, asked the old silversmith: "Tell me, sir, have you ever heard of a magical ring that causes the sad to become happy and the happy to become sad?" The old silversmith thought for a second, took out a small copper ring from one of the drawers, scratched it and handed it to the servant. The servant, who for the past few months had lost all hope, gave one glance at the inscription on the ring, and his eyes lit up. He thanked the silversmith, paid him a bag of gold coins, and hurried to the king's palace.

When the servant finally arrived at the King's Palace, Solomon was very happy and rejoiced. He did not believe that his servant would really come back to him with a ring. The servant handed the ring to his master, the wise king gave it one look and the smile immediately disappeared from his face. All the courtiers were curious to see what was written on the magical ring, and finally, when they looked at it, they saw the following simple sentence:"Despite everything, this too will pass"

This simple sentence contains a truth that we must cherish in our hearts - even if it feels like everything is going great and were on top of the world, we must remember that all this might disappear one day. On the other hand, and this is the happy side of the rule, all the suffering, all the frustration, all the difficult times we sometimes experience, these too will pass and be forgotten.

Send this story to all your friends, to remind them that even the most difficult moments pass in the end.
