Career: "If You’re Still Poor At 35, It Is Your Fault" -Alibaba CEO Jack Ma

Alibaba executive chairman and co-founder Jack Ma has provided a reality check for those wondering why they haven’t been blessed with success.

Translated from Chinese by Vulcan Post, the article begins with Ma recalling the opposition he faced when he first proposed the idea for Alibaba to 24 of his friends.

Asian Interviewer: "Can You Address Their Concerns Mr.Chang?"

Asian Interviewer: "Can you address their concerns Mr.Chang?"

MR. CHANG: "The concerns of Black people? Yes I can. The fact is, that we all live under a system of White Supremacy. We Asian people look back at our long history of conflict with the European. We observe their strategies and develop our own, in response and in kind. There is no need for loud mass movements on our part, because we intend to overtake them in time, through action and personal sacrifice".

Asian INTERVIEWER: "And the Black man?"

MR. CHANG: "He does not count into our situation. He is simply here. We do not hate the Black man. We just love the Asian man most. Real love--not cliche. We want to see Asian man happy, so we employ him.

Mid-Week Message: Life’s a Roller-Coaster… BUT God Will Never Forsake You

If you know me, then you know that I do not ride roller coasters. I don’t even like the small ones. 

Because I am not a fan of heights, I’m not going to put myself in a place where I will be suspended in mid-air just for fun.

When my brother asked me to ride the Superman ride at Six Flags Great Adventure, you can guess the answer that I gave him. However, 10 minutes later I found myself standing in the line of over 100 people, waiting to get on the Superman ride.  I could not believe that I had let my brother talk me into riding it.
I said a little prayer and we took off.  I must tell you that I trusted my brother (of course) but, my faith was in the Lord.

Happy October!!!!

Happy October beautiful's!

So excited and blessed to enter a new month. This year has been moving so quickly, and God has been so faithful as always. My prayer for myself and all you wonderful reader's is that God who has kept you till today, will continue to!

Relationships: 26, Unmarried, And Childless

What’s Next?”

Both of my brothers recently had kids that more than likely complete their families. They’re both older than me, so it makes sense they’re at a different stage.

They met and married their wives, they bought dogs and they had kids, all in a nice little sequence. I love watching them build their lives together. It’s a really good thing. When my last brother got married, I was in my early twenties. No one uttered anything about me getting married then.

But now? I’m 26 years old, unmarried, and childless. The comments are starting.

“What’s next?”

“When are you getting married?”

“Babies look good on you!”

Sunday Sermon: A Starved Spirit (Hungering For God Again)

"My daughter, you're becoming so busy and concerned about the things of this world that you're hardening your heart against me. 

Being overwhelmed and worried hardens your heart against My presence in your life because you take your eyes off of me and you put them on your situation. You take your eyes off of me and your allow for worry to consume your heart. I long to flow in and out of you but I need you to stop holding onto your ways and thinking."

So, that was a very real conversation that I had with God at one point in my life. I never thought that I was hardening my heart against Him! I mean, I'm helping people, I'm writing books, I'm praying for others, laying hands, blogging, I'm serving my family! I mean, come on God! He said, but Heather, you are doing it out of an empty, overwhelmed spirit.

You are rushing from here to there and even in your prayer time with me, you are rushing through it and running off to the next thing on your to-do list all while thinking about your schedule in my presence. It's almost like, God was whispering to my heart & I screamed back through my actions, "GOD, I don't have time for that right now, I'm too busy praying." God is JEALOUS for my schedule. He is JEALOUS for the time I give all of things things & people.

At times, we can be doing all of these God things and then we feel overwhelmed and weary. We cry out to Him and we still feel the same way. You see, you're doing what you're doing out of an empty spirit. Your spirit man is STARVED. The crazy thing is this, when we are hungry, our body tells us and we run and eat some food.

Wellness: Healthy Habits For Weight Loss

It is no rocket science to realise that no matter how long you've kept that unbearable weight issue at bay, all it takes is a bad day at the gym to go off gear. To back get on track again and let not the weight loss plan go for a toss, all you need to do is follow these healthy habits.

Don't overdo the salt
Aside of adding taste to your meals what salt also does is, attract water in the body. This means you hold onto that extra kilos instead of eliminating it — which is why you seem and feel a little bloated after indulging on some savouries.

This shouldn't mean that you cut back on all the salt in your meals. Since salt is a preservative, it is common sense that everything that's packaged or processed will be high in sodium. So you need to avoid them. Go for fresh fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean protein. Also, choose food high in potassium such as leafy greens, oranges, carrots, melon as well as bananas, tomatoes, and cauliflower, as they will help counter-balance for sodium.

As soon as you wake up, guzzle a glass of water. And then go for a cup of coffee or tea.
