While not nearly as dangerous as …

Posted on April 28, 2015 by Robert Ringer Comments (1)

While not nearly as dangerous as being an irresponsible spendthrift, an anti-spending obsession (as in “cheap”) can also be harmful to one’s well-being. Why? Because money can buy possessions and labor that not only can make your life easier and more enjoyable, they also can give you the ultimate reward — freedom. What good is […]

Posted on March 16, 2015 by Robert Ringer No Comments

In our modern Age of Envy, one of the great tragedies is that the entrepreneur is used as an excuse to cover up for government’s destruction of our currency, our economy, and our way of life. If most people were not devoid of intellect, information, or both, they would cheer for the success of those […]

Posted on March 12, 2015 by Robert Ringer No Comments

Did you ever grind away at a project for hours, then look up and ask yourself, “Why am I doing this?” More often than not, the reason was that you lost sight of your original objective was. The most important question to ask yourself in such a situation is not whether you’re spending too much […]

Posted on February 24, 2015 by Robert Ringer No Comments

As the People of the Lie continue to rewrite history, it’s a good time for us to remember the words of George Orwell in his classic, all-too-true novel “1984”: “If all records told the same tale,” said Orwell’s character Winston, “then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past,’ ran the […]

If you are fortunate enough to have achieved a degree of success, the challenge is to not allow others to prevent you from enjoying it. We live in an age of envy and intimidation, so beware of those who try to make you feel guilty for being successful. It’s irrational to believe that just because […]

Posted on January 24, 2015 by Robert Ringer No Comments

Since history clearly demonstrates that very little changes with regard to human nature and the interaction among human beings, it makes one wonder about man’s mission — or if he even has one. The more I reflect on this question, the more convinced I am that man’s fundamental secular purpose is to strive for achievement. […]

Irrationality and ignorance are …

Irrationality and ignorance are indirectly linked to one another in that they are both capable of blocking out reason. You can’t reason with an irrational person, because he lacks the intellect necessary to be rational. You can’t reason with an ignorant person, because he lacks the knowledge necessary to understand what you’re talking about. By […]

Posted on January 5, 2015 by Robert Ringer No Comments

The most meaningful results come from focusing on the crux of the issue — the point or points upon which success or failure rests. Resist the temptation to get sidetracked by peripheral issues that cannot yield a payoff, no matter what their outcome.

Posted on January 2, 2015 by Robert Ringer No Comments

It’s hard enough to avoid spreading yourself too thin just keeping up with the things you absolutely have to do and really want to do without committing to an excess of marginal projects in a hopeless effort to accommodate everyone. Don’t be so much to everyone else that you become nothing to yourself. The only […]

Posted on December 28, 2014 by Robert Ringer Comments (5)

There’s nothing more frustrating than doing a great job for someone and walking away empty-handed. Always keep in mind that your efforts are only a means to an end — GETTING PAID. Your main focus should be on the precise — repeat, PRECISE — method by which funds will be transferred from someone else’s bank […]
