30 Financial Moves Before 30– Ideas Worth Trying
January 13, 2011, 6:00 amby:MD Category:Miscellaneous I started reading the Art of Non-Conformity the other day and the idea of the life list/bucket list got me thinking again. I started thinking about my bucket list for what I want to accomplish before I turn 30 (in 7 years). Then I started to get more specific. I started thinking about what I want to accomplish financially before 30. Then I realized that my mind was all over the place.

Keep a buffer in a savings account because you never know when a rainy day will hit you out of nowhere. 2. You can debate good debt vs bad debt, but at the end of the day you should try to kill off your credit card debt before you turn 30. 3. The sooner you start planning for your retirement, the sooner you have compound interest working on your side. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

The Not-So-Rich-Any-More List Even before the financial crisis, the Occupy movement and the new era of austerity, the Sunday Times Rich List was an odd kind of fixture in the media landscape. The annual roll call of the wealthiest 1,000 individuals or families in the UK has always triggered the full range of our ambivalent responses to people with staggering amounts of money: envy, admiration, disdain, awe, and that special flavour of inverse snobbery that stems from being convinced that you've spent your life more meaningfully than the head of the Tetra Pak food-packaging empire, whatever the impact on your bank balance. Now, though, for reasons we all understand, attitudes towards the super-rich are changing: disdain is hardening into anger; ambivalence has been replaced with hostility. Despite a still-weak economy, the collective wealth of the 2011 Rich List increased by £60.2bn on the previous year, and in the 2012 list, which is published tomorrow, that divergence looks set to get larger.

Why you should learn to lucid dream If you’ve never experienced it then you may find it hard to understand what lucid dreaming is all about.

The 5 Things I'd Tell My 21 Year Old Entrepreneurial Self& 12 years ago I set out on my first foray into the world of entrepreneurship.

Tetrapharmakos The Tetrapharmakos (τετραφάρμακος) "four-part remedy" is a summary of the first four of the Κύριαι Δόξαι (Kuriai Doxai, the forty Epicurean Principal Doctrines given by Diogenes Laërtius in his Life of Epicurus) in Epicureanism, a recipe for leading the happiest possible life. They are recommendations to avoid anxiety or existential dread.[1] The four-part cure[edit] As expressed by Philodemos, and preserved in a Herculaneum Papyrus (1005, 4.9–14), the tetrapharmakos reads:[4] The 7 Natural Laws of the Universe « Path to Enlightenment The 7 Natural Laws of the Universe The Law of Attraction is just part of one of the 7 natural laws of the Universe: the Law of Vibration. Of the 7 Laws, it may be the most important in how our everyday lives play out, but all of the laws are in effect whether we are aware of them or not. Knowing what the 7 laws are and how they work can make a significant difference in applying them to create the life you truly desire. The 7 natural laws are in no particular order, but since the Law of Attraction has been discussed so much in The Secret, we’ll start with it. The Law of Vibration states that everything vibrates and nothing rests. Vibrations of the same frequency resonate with each other, so like attracts like energy.

Vision boards – your manifesting tool. Our brain thinks in pictures , which makes vision boards a very good idea and such an effective manifesting tool. In the last few years vision boards became very popular. They are particularly helpful for people who are not as visual. I always thought that it is a natural and easy task to do, because visualizing was very easy for me. What I have struggled with in the past was a consistent focus on the vision (I have always been very energetic and curious person and I could get distracted very easily). After talking to all kinds of people I meet or coach now, I realized that we are all different and use our senses in many different ways and intensities.
