Less is More – Stealthy Wealth

By | Main Blog | No Comments

  Less is more approach to wealth. Are you spending money you haven’t earned? Are you buying things to impress others? So many people believe that how much “stuff” you buy defines how “rich” you are. Wrong! Being financially wise and successful is so much more than just how much stuff you can buy in life. We live in a society where a lot of people think being financially stable means owning new cars and wearing  new designer clothes. We find it so easy to spend money on things that may make us look like we’re well-off, but really, the financially successful and fulfilled individuals are the ones that don’t need to show-off their wealth. Financial success is not how much you make or spend on “stuff” every year, but really how much money you actually save and build over a period of time. Staying stealthy Drive an economical and safe car or take public transportation Keep your personal life private Stay fake when it comes to materialistic “stuff” Don’t share your income – how much you make Don’t share your net worth Spread your assets Keep an open mind and stay diverse mentally and socially Stay humble Stay encouraging and positive…

Pay Attention to Your Smaller Finances

By | Main Blog | No Comments

Do you know where your money is going and what you are spending it on every week? Don’t feel bad you’re not the only one. A lot of us just spend, spend, spend and don’t even take into account if we can really afford it or not. I suggest maybe taking an inventory on where that money is going and where it really needs to be going. You can start by budgeting or creating some type of chart to break down your purchases. Budget. After you figure out how you are going to log your spending you have to train yourself to stop spending where it is not needed. It is so easy for us to waste money, we all do it. Now that we are logging where our money is going, it will help us to cut back because we can see where we are being blatantly wasteful with our money. Don’t waste money. Now we all give in to that peer pressure of friends and family when it comes to money. We always want to help where we can, but often we really can’t afford to help.

Meditation Experience

By | Main Blog | No Comments

My meditation experience Day 1 My first meditation was an in class meditation. Sitting still for ten minutes was the toughest thing in meditation. After five minutes, my legs started to feel numb and my concentration faded away. Breathing is what humans do without even realizing, but I could not breathe well when I tried to focus on my breathing. Moreover, I felt difficulty to even hear the sound of my breath. Another thing I realized was that something that never bothers me could really bother me during the meditation. Sounds of other people breathing and the noise of my fellow classmates meditating during the meditation. The more I tried to focus, the more I became distracted. During the time of meditation, my hatred towards meditation grew and I even started to blame the existence of meditation itself. After the meditation, it made me realize how I needed to be more open minded and maybe stop trying to focus on the meditation so much and just let it happen and allow my mind to just go on its own. Day 2 As I expected, today’s meditation was as tough as yesterday’s. During the meditation, I was wondering how I can…

Machiavelli speaks of four different types of principalities in this book. Hereditary principalities are inherited by the ruler. Mixed principalities are territories that are next to the ruler’s existing territories. New principalities can be acquired in a few different ways; by one’s own power, by the power of others, by criminal acts, or by the will of the people. Ecclesiastical principalities are first and foremost the Papal States belonging to the Catholic church. Machiavelli explains that a prince must always being aware of military affairs and stay up to date in order to stay in power. There are also four different types of armies. Mercenaries are hired soldiers who are for the most part troubling and untrustworthy. Auxiliaries are soldiers that are loaned to you in a time of need by another ruler who are also dangerous and unreliable. Native troops are the best and most trustworthy because they are one’s own citizens or subjects. Mixed troops are a combination of…
