PC Alert! Apparently if you are dress up as “The Wall” this Halloween you must be a racist because you hate Mexicans! (what’s this world coming too!) Also, the key to living a life of influence and how I almost missed the cruise ship on Contra Cruis
This Halloween the PC police are at it again so what you plan on dressing up as this Halloween make sure you don’t offend anyone! If you are dressed up in the Donald Trump Wall costume that must mean you’re a racist that hates Mexicans! Or if you’re a man and dress up as a woman you are making fun of transgender! I mean seriously what the hell don’t people have a life!? Also, what really is the key to influencing people in your life and pulling them to your side? There’s one factor and skill that if you master it, it can completely change your life and you will indeed change your life! I just got back from the Contra Cruise and boy do I have a story for you guys… I literally almost missed the ship at the last stop. Imagine running down the pier to the ship as the horn is blaring and it’s about to take off and I’m running for my life… Yep, that really did happen. Let me explain.

I came across a piece and this lady is showing her “facts” that is supposed to lead the reader to the conclusion that free market capitalism doesn’t work. That it’s in fact, the countries with more government control that are seeing the most growth today and are experiencing the most prosperity. This article is such a teachable moment and it shows how people with similar “facts” can see things in such different ways! How can we become better at communicating our message? The simple answer is… to become better at arguing for your point of view, you must first become a good listener. Thinking you can convert someone on the spot in all likelihood isn’t going to happen, we need to think long term. We all have our own, unique light bulb moment. The question is… How can bring someone to their light bulb moment of clarity?

Last week I visited Cuba and it was an enlightening experience. Imagine going to a city where it hasn’t been improved or maintained for 60 years… Yep, that’s the feeling I got when roaming the streets of Cuba. Everything is just really old, musty and colorless. People that have the mindset that government can provide prosperity is very laughable indeed. The government only consumes resources and allocates them in a very inefficient way compared to the private sector. On the world index, comparing countries prosperity, Cuba is ranked 177 and closely followed by the basket case, Venezuela. The government only gets in the way of prosperity! We need to get more people to understand this!
