The Law of Success – 1925 Edition
By now, I'm sure many of you have heard about the original 1925 Edition Law of Success by Napoleon Hill. For those that are unfamiliar with this edition, this is the one that was never released to the public. The mass market Law of Success, the one readily available in stores, was published in 1928. This is NOT the one from Orne Publishing (the one from the infomercial). This is a new and improved edition. For the record, I used to sell the Law of Success from Orne Publishing. Despite that, I'm gonna offer no bias statements. I'm simply gonna tell it like it is.
Speed Reading – The Real Deal or All Hype?
Recently, I was browsing the net and I came across a few articles that described speed reading as one big scam. The reasoning was that: its impossible for a person to read at a fast speed, comprehend what their read and retain the information all at the same time. Are the authors of those articles correct? If you would have asked me this a year ago, I would have said yes. But now, I’ve got to disagree and here’s why. I will admit that I’ve come across some speed reading articles on the internet, ones in which the authors were attempting to instruct the reader how they could increase their reading speed. I tried a few of those and saw minimal results. So at that point, I was thought it was bullshit. My browsing the net for speed reading techniques came after seeing a few commercials on TV advertising speed reading. The commercials would show a person reading through an entire page in 2 seconds — which I don’t believe.
Gold Standard vs. Debt-Free Fiat Currency
Recently, I've been listening to advocates from both the gold-money crowd and the debt-free fiat money crowd. Personally, I've always thought that the gold-standard was the best policy under which to issue money, but I've heard fiat-money supporters make a compelling argument in favor of a debt-free fiat money. In this article, I'm gonna discuss what I think are the pros and the cons of both. First we're gonna discuss two major problems which plagues our money system today which would support the argument in favor of fiat money.
