THE 3 MAGIC WORDS THAT WILL GET HER HOT!

I love it when Facebook actually works and delivers an idea or article I can really get my teeth into. Recently someone posted an article about the 3 words that your wife loves to hear that will turn her into a love machine. I'm clearly paraphrasing now and taking from it what I wanted, which I think was the point.

I did an extensive search (a whole 5 minutes) for the author of the original piece to give credit to them but to no avail. So to you, whomever you are, thank you and respect.

So what are the 3 words that will turn your wife, girlfriend, or companion into a love machine?

So a lot of you may be thinking, as stated in the article, that it would be words like; I love you; I need you; you are beautiful; you’re my life; I respect you; you complete me; (I think I just threw up in my mouth) and you would be correct - to an extent.

WHERE ARE THE STRONG UNPOPULAR LEADERS?

Every Sunday, Carte Blanche exposes laziness, incompetence and shocking failure of service delivery. "We" are all astounded, we shake our heads and we shout that the leaders, specifically the heads of the various departments should resign and be held accountable.

When confronted, these leaders act surprised, make excuses, blame underlings, and promise to look into things. We shout, we scream, we turn to social media and we become racists as we rant.

#NEWTON’S 3rd LAW AND YOUR LIFE

"For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction"

Newton's 3rd law on movement

I'm not a great believer in standing against things. I'm also not one for fighting wars against things. The war against drugs, the war against poverty, the war against corruption and on and on. It's not that I am for these things either; it's just that I understand Newton's third law. As I see it when you stand against, or when you push against something, it has to push back. I've got a cool thing that I do in my talks: I ask 3 different people to hold up a hand and tell them that on the count of 3 I will push back. I then place my hands against theirs and without warning I push, without telling them what to do, and as soon as I push against their hand, they automatically push back. Funny that!

THE POOH BUSINESS STRATEGY

For those of you who follow my sometimes-ranting, opinion pieces, you will know that I am always on the lookout for new business strategies and I have a hot new one for you this month. It is inspired by the great philosopher Winnie the Pooh, and his famous saying “Oh bother”. If you want to build a stress-free business just become a Why Bother, One-hit Wonder.

EINSTEIN, FREQUENCY, & THE LAW OF SUCCESS

So here's the thing!  I have been wrestling with a quote by Albert Einstein for a long time. It stumped me for years, and then just the other day I felt like Archimedes and wanted to run down Kipling Avenue shouting “Erica, Erica, I have got it”. Who the hell Erica was, only he would know.

(Thank you Frank Opperman for that one!) 

STOP THE NON-SENSE AND 2017 WILL BE YOUR PERSONAL BEST !

Are you also tired of people blaming a man-made concept, a number for what is happening in their lives?

"Can't wait to see the end of 2016, 2016 sucked, so many celebrities died in 2016", and on and on.

Some doomers and gloomers are now even predicting that 2017 will be the same or even worse than 2016!

3 Things on .... "HOW TO BE HAPPY"

Here's the thing:

Every day, whether you know it or not, you are doing things that steer you away from pain and unhappiness and that move you towards pleasure and happiness. 

This is South Africa baby!

We have to stop it, we really do. Please, my fellow South Africans can we stop all the negativity, doom & gloom, complaining, bitching, whining, moaning, criticizing, fault finding and Armageddon predicting.

IT’S BECAUSE YOU ARE STUPID AND LAZY!

“How can you say that?” she looked at me shocked. Shocked because she was actually paying me to have a one-on-one session with her and how dare I……. "I'm not stupid and definitely not lazy". Well then you are also confused, and you’re attempting to defy your psychology and physiology. 

IT’S TIME FOR CITIZENSHIP COURSES!

This month is a “ranting” month, so let’s get started …..

It seems that we definitely need to start running citizenship courses. Courses that explain to people that in order for us to live in harmony and whilst in close proximity to other people, we have to wake up and be aware that our actions affect those around us.

A WAR ON LAZY

If you are a manager or owner of a business, you will understand the amount of time you spend getting people to just get off their lazy butts and do their jobs. I always marvel at their warm up time. You know. The first 30 minutes of the day put aside for coffee and skinner; the extra-long lunch, tea and smoke breaks and the “pack away time” that happens a good ½ hour before home time.

An Open Letter of Apology

The group of over 250 people was fully engaged and it was a seriously funny, rocking conference, but …. She didn't smile, not even once. It was 15 minutes into my presentation and I was dishing out gold. My LPM's (Laughs Per Minute) were at about four or five but she just stared at me. She sat in the third row from the front and she was almost impossible to miss and hard not to focus on.

40 DAYS & 40 NIGHTS OF CPA

So I watched a documentary called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. It’s about an Australian guy who is fat, sick and nearly dead who decides to go to America (the land of temptation) and live on juice alone. No food for 60 days only the juice of fruit and vegetables.

You have got to be kidding!

So I was speaking to a GM of a large hotel chain about his new post out in a remote area. Polite conversation brings us to the fact that he and his wife have decided not to have children. He immediately and almost apologetically begins to justify their decision to me. This got me thinking, as I always tend to do.

The Tipping Point

Here’s the thing!

It’s long been a bugbear of mine this whole question of tipping. I assume you, like me, and most people, begrudgingly go along with this strange custom mostly because of social norms and guilt.
