WHAT ARTICLES I’M READING
Why Winners Keep Winning
“Our social universe has very few rules. But if I had to pick an iron law, it’s that winners keep winning. We’ve known this since the New Testament. Specifically, the book of Luke says: “I tell you, that to every one who has will more be given; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.” Here, we have empirical evidence from Stephen King and JK Rowling. Outside the world of writing, this article shows how a small financial advantage at the beginning of your career can lead to outsized gains over time.” – David Perrell
The World’s Most Feared Investor
“Paul Singer, the head of hedge fund Elliott Management, has developed a uniquely adversarial, and immensely profitable, way of doing business. He has been called ‘aggressive, tenacious and litigious to a fault,’ and named ‘The World’s Most Feared Investor.’ This is a comprehensive look at what happens when this ruthless activist investor begins to sniff around your company. It’s not so pretty.” – Polina Pompliano

The Real Reason Travel Leads to Personal Growth
Brian Clark says that Travel is an activity that’s practically guaranteed to change your life for the better. “In fact,” he writes, research establishes that Mark Twain was right when he said ‘travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness,’ as spending time in diverse locations really does broaden the mind and increase your acceptance of and trust in others.”
The Top 25 Islands in the World
I’ve always had an endearing soul-stirring fascination with islands, lagoons and bays. So, this is Travel & Leisure’s rankings worth passing alone. “Looking to spot iguanas lazing about and sea lions playing with snorkelers in the waters off the white beaches? The Galápagos (No. 10) is for you. For unrivaled diving, there is Koh Samui in Thailand (No. 7) and the Philippines’ Palawan (No. 19). If you’re hoping to spend your days indulging in homemade pasta and wine from local vineyards, consider Sicily (No. 6) or Sardinia (No. 16).”

WHAT I’M PONDERING
Excerpt from Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE (R)
“‘I think I could tackle my problem more wisely if I could see what it is. Isn’t it strange that I don’t know what’s bothering me? I used to think I understood, but no longer. Do you have insight into this? Do you
know what my problem is?’
‘Yes, I know.’
‘Will you point it out?’
‘If you are deeply interested in the exploration. It is a psychological law that no one can be given anything that they don’t really want. Do you want a thorough discussion?’
‘Yes. I somehow sense that this is the only way. So tell me, please, what is my basic difficulty?’
‘You are afraid.’
‘Fear is always a dominating difficulty of anyone separated from his original nature. Just as thorns are natural to a cactus, so are fear and anxiety a part of the false self. But there is bright hope here. Do you
‘By recovering our natural self, we lose our fears. Is that what you mean?’
‘Yes. Anxiety becomes impossible.’
‘That’s what I want. So, please, I’d like to explore it.’
That is what we will do in this chapter. Everyone treading the Mystic Path must slay the dragons of fear, both the surface shakings and the deeper dreads. Fear is not only a terrible foe in itself but leads to
other negativities, such as anger, which Confucius described as a foremost self-destroyer.
