Some interesting and good videos...
Very Interesting! I agree a lot with Naomi Klein and Russell.
Interesting pics...Started reading Noam Chomsky's "Who Rule's the World?". Seems good. It's good to look at all sides of arguments though and formulate one own's opinion and what is true and not not true, to degrees. I want to read some of Thomas Sowell's work as well, it seems good even if I may not agree with everything he thinks. Need to learn more about economics a bit I feel but I am a bit. I would say there is much truth in Chomsky's words here though.
Another great video and some pics:
I was hurting for a couple of days last week. It was not good. Real pain comes from within as does real happiness. I would rather be in physical and financial pain than to be mentally or spiritually hurt. I am glad my life was saved and I found the truth - what I believe to be the truth anyway and the most perfect of things, which is Islam and striving for good!
Also - Long-term thinking, achievement, self-care etc. > Short-term gains or "low, vain desires" etc.

"YOU Are Your Biggest Investment!
At one of his Berkshire Hathaway annual meetings, Warren Buffett said:
“The most important investment you can make is in yourself. Very few people get anything like their potential horsepower translated into the actual horsepower of their output in life. Potential exceeds realization for many people…The best asset is your own self. You can become to an enormous degree the person you want to be.”
If you have a good idea of who you are and what you want to do with your life, you are half way to a successful life. Invest in yourself, it’s the best investment you can ever make. Create a bigger version of yourself. Don’t settle on a self-imposed plateau; always aim a bit higher than before.
It’s not about the kind of skills you acquire because you have to, but because you want to and it feels right. Something you are happy to do without hesitation. Skills that are unique to you. Skills you can only learn by doing. Skills that can only be developed when you find your true self.
When you put yourself on the line or otherwise expose yourself to the possibility of failure. Basically, what I am trying to tell you is that, there is something about you that can be explored and developed to your benefit and the rest of the world.
Invest in yourself! "
