Mentally Strong People: The 13 Things They Avoid

Mentally Strong People: The 13 Things They Avoid | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
For all the time executives spend concerned about physical strength and health, when it comes down to it, mental strength can mean even more.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Very good article and, in a sense, it's curated content too.  The lady pictured above is where the source material came from from another lady, Charyl Conner, apparently a writer for Forbes Magazine, actually spun this original gal's content.

 

It's a great article though and I'll probably spin it for a MLM magazine I writer for :-)

"I was what they call in America an asshole." Do what you want to do. | Slomo

Dr. John Kitchin quit a medical career to pursue his passion: skating along the boardwalk of San Diego’s Pacific Beach. He calls himself “Slomo.”

Via Tyler Negus Snidow
wanderingsalsero's insight:

This guy really, really has it right.  Everybody could do what he does. Maybe not to the degree, but certainly in substance.  He's right about something else too.  It's easy to become an ass-hole and not even know it until it's too late.

Why It's Never Been Easier to be a Freelance Writer

Why It's Never Been Easier to be a Freelance Writer | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
Think times are tough for freelance writers? Here's a revealing look at why there's never been a better time to pursue writing for pay.
wanderingsalsero's insight:

Although I certainly haven't reached the level of success that Carol Trice, the writer of this article has, I know enough to heartily agree with what she says about the prospects for writers today and how many different ways there are to become one.

 

I won't re-hash the article...you can read it, but I'm always glad to see people talk about things that are actually better than most people think they are.  From what I know of her story, Carol is well-qualified to talk about the 'then' vs. 'now' of becoming a writer.  Her story is interesting and it's interwoven throughout her excellent blog at www.makealivingwriting.com .

 

I was down at a local mall, Al Hamra Mall, today (going to Western Union) and as I was waiting outside for my taxi a guy (a westerner) stopped and greeted me and we chatted for a bit. 

 

He said he spoke to me because he recognized me from coincidental observations there before. I thought that was an interesting coincidence because, firstly, I'm fascinated by observant people, and secondly, I've only been to that mall maybe 4 times in the 3+ months I've been here (in Ras al Khaimah, UAE).

 

Other than the fact that I'm always impressed by anybody who has the confidence to just say 'Hi' to somebody else (most people are not that extrovert, right?), I was also impressed when he told me he was a self-employed writer too.

 

We didn't have time to chat about his particular professional journey but I gathered that, just like me, it was just something that happened gradually with him. 

 

Point being:  Just like Carol says....there's a lot of different roads that lead to being a writer but apparently the field is more wide open than ever.  Someday I'm going to enroll his her "Writers Den".

Watch Jeff Gordon give an auto blogger the terrifying ride of his life

Watch Jeff Gordon give an auto blogger the terrifying ride of his life | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it
About a year ago, the marketing geniuses of Pepsi MAX came up with the idea of having NASCAR star Jeff Gordon disguise himself as a milquetoast tire-kicker and shoot a video with him taking a used-car salesman on a high-speed joyride in a Camaro. It was a good notion, but the setup was a bit too transparent — the more you thought about it, the more staged it seemed. (C'mon, cupholder camera?)

Anyway....this is a nice blues tune and Jimmy is totally right.  The music industry hasn't picked this mantra up 'big time' yet but I suspect they will.  Artists like them are threatened by the NOW just as much as anybody.

Telephone numbers in the Philippines - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Telephone numbers in the Philippines - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Philippines is assigned an international dialling code of 63 by ITU-T. Telephone numbers are fixed at seven digits, with area codes fixed at one, two, or three digits (the six digits system was used until the mid-1990s; four to five digits were used in the countryside).

wanderingsalsero's insight:

I'll bet there's a lot of people, like me, who are really confused by international phones number when they are thrust into the environment of using them when they travel.

 

In the case of the Philippines, I found that NOBODY was able to really explain their phone numbers.  To them it was just a jumble of numbers that somehow they remembered..  They had no concept of Area Code+Local Exchange+Subscriber Number (i.e. 3+3+4 numbers).

 

I found this Wikipedia page very helpful in understand the spaghetti-bowl of Philippine cell phone numbers.

I don't know exactly why but I have always liked Sade.  This is a great video too (ageless...like all of her videos are) because it perfectly portrays the situation with so many working women.  I can also admire it because she portrays a working 'artists'.  Artists (musicians or otherwise) have a passion for what they do that goes well-beyond just economic necessity.

▶ Pastor "Sat" Manila Wedding Pastor - YouTube

wanderingsalsero's insight:

This is really kinda funny...what the heck is a simple video like this doing on a Scoop.it page like this...(even one as chaotic as mine) ? :-)

 

The answer is that Pastor "Sat" is a friend of mine.  He loves doing weddings, he's done a boatload of them, and he's also long and happily married himself. 

 

I've never been married but I agree with Pastor Sat that any marriage is going to have a lot better chance of success if it's founded on the Word of God and faith in Jesus. 

 

Personally, I'd highly recommend Pastor Sat for anybody in the Manila area who want a memorable, Christian marriage pastor and a ceremony where all the 'right stuff' will be included and nothing will be left out.

How To Supercharge Your Coffee To Give You Even More Energy In The Morning

How To Supercharge Your Coffee To Give You Even More Energy In The Morning | Wandering Salsero | Scoop.it

The old world tradition of adding butter to coffee has recently re-emerged as a performance enhancer embraced by the likes of Bulletproof Executive founder Dave Asprey and holistic health guru Andrew Weil.

 

Weil asserts that the often demonized saturated fat poses no risk for increased heart disease and may actually help "stimulate the body's fat-burning potential" in addition to boosting creativity and productivity.

wanderingsalsero's insight:

Considering that Venezuela is a major oil producer, I can't help but wonder to what extent the global banking elite and/or the US specifically, is behind this turmoil in Venezuela.  I think it's too early to see which way this is going but I do know one thing:  chaos always presents opportunities for those who know how to create it and government destabilization is the 'new' form of geopolitical aggression (for several decades now).
