Men have far more difficulties to convince themselves that they are a value-added member for humanity. If a man does Not receive an award or a badge of honor, he would be hard pressed to have any confidence in his value. Women have a ready potential to materialy know that they added value once they give birth, as long as no one of their children dies: Otherwise, a woman would have to overcome the barrier of figuring out what alternative is meant to add values to humanity.

“This is Not democracy plus occupation. This is apartheid between the river and the sea.” Israel Human rights group

You have got this tiny bird Colibri: it can fly in all directions, backtracking and even flying still (du sur place) to suck the nectar from red flowers. Do you think nature red flowers would have been eradicated without the colibri?”

“After the facts“: Many universities cancelled the “honorary degrees” they bestowed on Donald Trump. If the insurrection prevailed, they would Not even had to consider their decisions.

Funny. The UK-China trade bill could include a genocide amendment. Lawmakers vote on a measure that would give UK courts the power to determine if a genocide is underway in China’s Xinjiang province—and allow parliament to reject a trade deal with Beijing based on such a determination. The question remains: How much should the UK pay in reparation for destroying China economy and social structure on during centuries of Opium trade?

The latest Trump insurrection into the Capitol might slow down the wildefire of nationalist racism spreading around the world.

You voted for a candidate who turned to be dishonest and incompetent. You didn’t vote on Election Day, mainly for laziness and “neutral politically” of the “Silent Majority”. Which citizen is more responsible for the State of Affairs?

Israel is an implanted colonial State by the colonial powers (including Russia), and inherited all the colonial laws and practices. Worse, Israel intends on destroying all the vestiges of civilizations in the Middle-East because they had no civilization to show to the world. It has been carrying out the erasing all vestiges since its inception and ordered ISIS (Daesh) to systematically do this job.

Martin Luther King told NBC’s Sander Vanocur in 1967: “I think the biggest problem now is we got our gains over the last 12 years at bargain rates. Now, we’re confronting issues that cannot be solved without costing the nation billions of dollars… this is where we’re getting our greatest resistance.”

Professor Philip Salem said, as you lose the sense of smell, take Dexamethasone (A cortisone designed for the lungs infection of non-bacterial inflammation) and Coumadin (instead of aspirin) to thin the blood since most the dead end up in heart blood blockage. Then, go get tested and rest in your confined quarter.

I don’t believe in luck but good fortune isn’t always an accident. How well prepared we are to catch and grab an opportunity, which we are passionate about, is a lucky fortunate accident that life always dangle to the well prepared people, and more than once.

For instance in matter of believing in Luck:

Napoleon believed that some generals were just Not lucky persons. If the failure is a successive trend with the general, then luck has nothing to do in this case

Jay Elliot met Steve Jobs in the waiting area of a restaurant after leaving Intel for a job at a startup. The start-up failed. And Jay had no job. Andy Grove, Intel’s president and Jay’s former boss, gave Jay this parting message, “You’re making a big mistake – Apple isn’t going anywhere.”

Jay became a V.P. at Apple and Jobs’ right hand man. Steve was twenty-five. It was just months before Apple went public.

Creating 16 good fortune? I’ll settle for one, as a start

By Dan Rockwell?

Ask any successful person how they achieved success and many will mention good fortune.

Some will say, “I was lucky.” (Napoleon believed that some generals were just Not lucky persons)

For instance:

Jay Elliot told me he met Steve Jobs in the waiting area of a restaurant after leaving Intel for a job at a start-up. The start-up failed. Jay had no job.

Andy Grove, Intel’s president and Jay’s former boss, gave Jay this parting message, “You’re making a big mistake – Apple isn’t going anywhere.”

Jay became a V.P. at Apple and Jobs’ right hand man. Steve was twenty-five. It was just months before Apple went public.

Serendipity!

I say luck is when an opportunity comes along and you’re prepared for it. (Denzel Washington)

The Sweet 16 of creating good fortune:

  1. Stay open. The thing you seek may not be the thing you find.
  2. Keep asking questions. (Intently listening for the opportunities?)
  3. Look for favorable circumstances. People see what they look for.
  4. Set direction and goals; they help you understand favorable winds.
  5. Adapt to favorable opportunities that aren’t perfect.
  6. Keep moving forward even if direction changes.
  7. Prepare for adversity.
  8. Embrace turbulence; it opens hearts and minds.
  9. Let go of failure.
  10. Talk opportunities. Talking problems elevates and validates them. The more you talk about problems the more problems you see.
  11. Learn from mistakes.
  12. Push through resistance.
  13. Disregard convenient activities; do what is right.
  14. Build a network of friends.
  15. Ask for advice, a lot. Seek out experts and others who share your experiences and vision.
  16. Express gratitude.

Bonus: Do your best where you are.

Successful leadership includes good fortune. I don’t believe in luck but good fortune isn’t always an accident.

How can leaders create good fortune?
