    Personal beliefs – what we believe

    @Sdajii
    @Ann

    Whatever political or crazy scientific falsehoods you ever hear about or whatever insane psychological ideas or conspiracy theories, just google it and you will get more information than you could possibly read which 'confirms' it, whichever side of the debate you are on.

    So it is now impossible for most people to become informed.

    What they consume simply reinforces whatever beliefs they happen to already have or want.

    OFF Topic

    Stephen Hawking dismissed the existence of a god from beyond the grave in a brutal smack down.

    Stephen Hawking goes on to say:

    1. “There is no God”
    2. “There is no afterlife”
    3. “ There is only wishful thinking”

    Getting members to dump it here is harder than I thought possible

    Should I be controversial?

    Atheists

    “Atheists” have no faith - all they have are opinions that align with a TRIBE that simply reinforces whatever they believe – it’s known as confirmation bias..

    Thinking

    My wife hates it when I say..

    "I’ve been thinking"


    Come up with a crazy or insane idea, google it, and you will find information 'confirming' it.

    TRIBE mentality

    I've been thinking for sometime to write a paper on TRIBE mentality & the effects it has on our decision making process.

    TRIBE mentality 2

    Tribe mentality sounds simple but it’s very complex subject to get your head around knowing we all make decisions depending on which tribe we associate that colours our thought process.

    Life's short.

    Make sure you spend as much time as possible on the Internet arguing with strangers about nothing.

    Well nothing that makes a difference anyway..

    A question from a reader

    I'm posting a letter from one of my readers hoping other to dump it here:

    “A question - as I read your latest version, I am wondering why the section on ‘Nihilism’, followed by ‘Religion in General’ and beyond is included in the book ? It would seem that this may belong in another book by the same award-winning author (“Phil’s Philosophical Ponderings” ??). From a commercial point of view, removing this more controversial subject from a book on Trading, may also increase your readership base. As you know, some Christians can be a little prejudiced”

    Gambling

    I was a Bookmaker for many decades & that's a subject that holds a lot of stories.

    The most popular question I receive goes something like this: "Trading is simply gambling and very risky at that - isn't it?"

    My automated response
    Life in general is one big gamble made up of a lot of little gambles and a millions decisions along the way – it’s just human nature that people are afraid of things they don’t understand.

    Money

    Money dictates the quality our life and It’s a shame more people don’t take a greater interest because trading shares is a lot less complex than most people think. Investing and trading in the stock market has some risk, as do all asset classes that offer good long term returns, however, risks can be minimised and returns can be magnified with the right strategy.

    Quality of life

    Financial independence is really about creating an extraordinary quality of life that can have a significant effect on everything from our psychology, to our health, to our relationships.

    Live an extraordinary life

    Without financial independence it’s impossible to live an extraordinary life if you don’t master the financial game along the way.

    My views are not for everyone, but other should realise that their decisions ultimately control the quality of their lives – that’s the message I try to pass on to one & all.

    The revised layout is great, and from my perspective, much more reader-friendly. Well done.

    Advice given freely

    "One further suggestion - would it be possible to include your gems of wisdom into the main body of the book, i.e include the relevant gem in the section titled “Why your emotions belong to you”, or “Biases”, etc."

    Scams

    Somethings you may not know..

    In a previous life one of my business was to train "The Sales Trainers" in the art of selling.

    Sales professionals use the same toolbox as scammers

    The only difference is what the sales professional says today, tomorrow & well into the future is true.
