Have you got the habit of accumulating money, and not spending it because you think that in the future you may be in want of it? Have you got the habit of storing clothes, shoes, furniture, utensils and other home supplies that you haven’t used already for some time? And inside yourself...? Have you got the habit to keep reproaches, resentment, sadness, fears and more? Don’t do it! You are going against your prosperity! It is necessary to make room, to leave an empty space in order to allow new things to arrive to your life. It is necessary that you get rid of all the useless things that are in you and in your life, in order to prosperity to arrive. The force of this emptiness is one that will absorb and attract all that you wish. As long as you are, materially or emotionally, holding old and useless feelings, you won’t have room for new opportunities Goods must circulate.... Clean your drawers, the wardrobes, the workshop, the garage... Give away what you don’t use any longer... The attitude of keeping a heap of useless stuff ties your life down. It’s not the objects you keep that stagnate your life... but rather the attitude of keeping... When we keep in store, we consider the possibility of wanting, of penury.. we believe that tomorrow it may lack, and that we won’t be able to fulfill those necessities.. With that idea, you are sending two messages to your brain and to your life.

A good read. Superb article ..EVERY one should read and share with children.... . Inspirational ! SHARE IT WITH CHILDREN Power of Money, By Adam Khoo( Singapore 's youngest millionaire at 26 yrs.) Some of you may already know that I travel around the region pretty frequently, having to visit and conduct seminars at my offices in Malaysia , Indonesia , Thailand and Suzhou ( China ). I am in the airport almost every other week so I get to bump into many people who have attended my seminars or have read my books. Recently, someone came up to me on a plane to KL and looked rather shocked. He asked, 'How come a millionaire like you is traveling economy?' My reply was, 'That's why I am a millionaire. ' He still looked pretty confused. This again confirms that greatest lie ever told about wealth(which I wrote about in my latest book 'Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires' ). Many people have been brainwashed to think that millionaires have to wear Gucci, Hugo Boss, Rolex, and sit on first class in air travel. This is why so many people never become rich because the moment that they earn more money, they think that it is only natural that they spend more, putting them back to square one. The truth is that most self-made millionaires are frugal and only spend on what is necessary and of value. That is why they are able to accumulate and multiply their wealth so much faster. Over the last 7 years, I have saved about 80% of my income while today I save only about 60% (because I have my wife, mother in law, 2 maids, 2 kids, etc. to support). Still, it is way above most people who save 10% of their income (if they are lucky). I refuse to buy a first class ticket or to buy a $300 shirt because I think that it is a complete waste of money. However, I happily pay $1,300 to send my 2-year old daughter to Julia Gabriel Speech and Drama without thinking twice. When I joined the YEO (Young Entrepreneur' s Orgn) a few years back (YEO) is an exclusive club open to those who are under 40 and make over $1m a year in their own business) I discovered that those who were self-made thought like me. Many of them with net worth well over $5m,travelled economy class and some even drove Toyota 's and Nissans,not Audis, Mercs, BMWs. I noticed that it was only those who never had to work hard to build their own wealth (there were also a few ministers' and tycoons' sons in the club) who spent like there was no tomorrow. Somehow, when you did not have to build everything from scratch, you do not really value money. This is precisely the reason why a family's wealth (no matter how much) rarely lasts past the third generation Thank God my rich dad foresaw this terrible possibility and refused to give me a cent to start my business. Then some people ask me, 'What is the point in making so much money if you don't enjoy it?' The thing is that I don't really find happiness in buying branded clothes, jewellery or sitting first class. Even if buying something makes me happy it is only for a while, it does not last. Material happiness never lasts, it just give you a quick fix. After a while you feel lousy again and have to buy the next thing which you think will make you happy. I always think that if you need material things to make you happy, then you live a pretty sad and unfulfilled life.. Instead, what makes me happy is when I see my children laughing and playing and learning so fast. What makes me happy is when I see my companies and trainers reaching more and more people every year in so many more countries. What makes me really happy is when I read all the emails about how my books and seminars have touched and inspired some one's life. What makes me really happy is reading all your wonderful posts about how this blog is inspiring you. This happiness makes me feel really good for a long time, much much more than what a Rolex would do for me. I think the point I want to put across is that happiness must come from doing your life's work (be it teaching, building homes, designing,trading, winning tournaments etc.) and the money that comes is only a by-product. If you hate what you are doing and rely on the money you earn to make you happy by buying stuff, then I think that you are living a life of meaninglessness.
1.Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight, and height. Let the doctors worry about them.. That is why you pay them. 2. Keep only cheerful friends.. The grouches pull you down. (Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!) 3. Keep learning: Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain get idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's! 4. Enjoy the simple things 5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him or her! 6. The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on.. The only person who is with us our entire life, is our self. 7. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help. 8. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt isLIVE while you are alive. 9. Tell the people you love; that you love them, at every opportunity.

Red Lobsters look exactly like real lobsters – cooked lobsters – because most are actually quite red. They make very pretty and interesting tank residents (by themselves). Snap their large pincers off if you plan to keep them with your fish-This is the advice by the hobbyist but i think it is a bit cruel to do this; just leave him along with the rest that should be ok. It was sold here at RM 6.00 per prawn. Easy to keep.In China; the restaurants are cooking it as a local delicacy!
Long-Armed Blue Lobsters are really prawns. They can easily snag a fish the same size as their body. We had not seen them for a long time and did not miss them. Those old blue lobsters don’t resemble lobsters in the least. They’re really prawns – sort of a shrimp that grows as large as a small lobster.
Their long thin pincers (nothing like heavy lobster claws) are extremely adapt at catching any type of fish that swims close. Not just scavengers – these guys are active and efficient hunters. They also enjoy fighting with each other. You can also find them in many Thai restaurants.
I bought these type at RM 8.00 per prawn at Muar.But unfortunately both species are good at climbing out from the tank to escape! Please see my other posting @ 12/09/2009 on the same topic.
