We're gonna need a bigger boat.



Rummy shows us using Geometric Logic that a “miss” and a “mile” and “complete victory” are, surprisingly, all exactly this long.


Rummy always struck me as one of the "Quint-from-Jaws" guys of this Administration.

Deranged shark-hunter who’s working out God-knows-what personal demons by taking a boat that’s way too fucking small deep into lethal waters, and once the peril of following his lunatic plan becomes clear, he decides the best course of action would be to smash the radio.

You can just imagines him pumped up on testosterone until it’s squirting out his tear ducts, bragging to Bush, “I'll catch these terrorists for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down to the pond and chasing bluegills and tommycocks. …

And most especially, “I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's too many captains on this island. Ten thousand dollars for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing.”

Difference being that Big Don hasn’t ever actually been on a boat, or hunted Great Whites, or floated in the water and watched friends die. He’s nothing but a swagger-and-thesaurus manure dispenser with bulletproof job security because the one guy who can fire him is also the one guy who is actually stupid enough to keep take big bites out of Rummy’s guano-burgers and ask for seconds.

But now, as is transparently obvious to all but the Red State Kool-aidians, he and his President and have stranded us in some very deadly deeps indeed, with no plan except more of the same.

So taking a great deal of license with Himself’s comments on the Mouse Circus last week, and a couple of Q&A lists on Sharks off the web, I started to wonder what Rummy might say about the recent apparent rise in Shark Attacks, if say, the Administration had declared a full, global war against the so-called Axis of Chondrichthyes.

And it wasn’t going so well.

----------------------------------------------------------------


Q: For starters, Mr. Secretary, how many species of sharks have been known to attack man?

RUMMY: You know, the suggestion that things go nicely or good in a war is just not the case. Wars are tough things, and I think the concern on the part of the public in every war, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the World War--two World Wars, Korea, Vietnam--it's always been a case. And it's understandable.

So the American people are basically seeing almost all of the violence and the negatives but very little of the positive side. So it's not surprising. Polls go up, they go down. If you try to chase them, I think it's a mistake. We have to be aware of that fact, but I feel that solid progress is being made.

Q: Actually, I didn’t ask anything about the polls.

RUMMY: Fuck you, you were thinking it.

Q: Chuck Hagel, a Republican, said this: "Shark attacks aren't getting better, they're getting worse. The White House is completely disconnected from reality. ...It's like they're just making it up as the go along."


RUMMY: That's just flat wrong. We are not. And if you think of what General Casey and General Abizaid and General Myers said this week in congressional testimony, the allegation that it's some sort of a quagmire and progress isn't being made just isn't true. And they feel very good about the progress that's being made.

Sharks have no vision. They have no Ho Chi Minh, they have no Mao, they don't have any cause. Most sharks don’t even live around here, or pay any taxes. They're killing people and they're opposing an elected government. That isn't any long-term formula for success.


Q: The Times of London reports this morning that there have been two meetings between U.S. officials and some number of sharks, both Squaliformes and Squatiniformes. Even Heterodontiformes. Is that accurate?

RUMMY: Oh, I wouldn’t doubt it. I think there have probably been many more than that. I mean, not the ones with blood on their teeth, but the others. I mean, that’s what we’re saying. Wer’e saying in the Pacific “Hey, come into the ecosystem. Let's stop eating swimmers," and the same thing's going on in the Atlantic.


Q: Is that, by definition, negotiating with sharks?

RUMMY: No, no. Look, look, you've got a situation where you've got Bad Man-eating Death Machines, and over here you've got Good Man-eating Death Machines. Good Man-eating Death Machines haven't decided what they're going to do. Maybe they can be persuaded to bring swimmers drinks and yummy-yummy banana bread, and are willing to maybe at some future date consider giving up the whole “eating swimmers" thing. The goal is to get got Good Man-eating Death Machines to all move the in the general direction of the whole “not eating swimmers” initiative, and it isn't a matter of negotiating with sharks. There's no one negotiating with Bad Man-eating Death Machines or the one’s that are out bite people's heads off.

And I think the sharks are going to choose a path of lightness.

There's…Look, the sweep of evolutionary history is for NOT eating people. Look at what's happened with the saber-tooth tiger and the T-Rex; we defeated them both, and now have democratically elected governments on both Saber Island and Rexonia.


Q: Actually, didn’t the last saber-tooth die out, like, 20,000 years ago before people were even a big deal? And weren’t the dinosaurs all extinct tens of million of years before the first humans even came into existence?

RUMMY: That's just flat wrong. Ask James Dobson.


Q: Let me show you a graphic, which represents how consistent shark attacks have been over time. Since the beginning of Operation Undoing Freedom, they haven’t been going down at all. Does any of that represent, in your mind, misjudgments made by you or the Administration about the nature of sharks generally, or your plans to address the problem?


RUMMY: Well, you know, you have to remember that in every shark thingy, your diving cage doesn't survive first contact with a Great White. It's just reality. These sharks are perfectly willing go and eat innocent people, and anyone who wants to eat people tend to get away with it. Cheney eats 3-4 people a week. A week!

And I think that our shark fighters are the finest on the face of the Earth. They are the best trained, they are the best equipped, they're the best led, and they're doing a fine, fine job for our country. And progress is being made politically and economic, but I see people look at it and say, "Well, my goodness, what about this? What about that?"

This is the reality of the sharking business: that there's violence and it's tough and it's terrible. And that's why it's everybody's last choice.


Q: But there are a lot of Americans and members of Congress who believe that fundamental misjudgments were made. The whole notion of how sharks would react -- a few days before the invasion, I had Vice President Cheney on this program. And this is what I asked him and what his answer was. Let's watch and come back and talk about it.

(Videotape, March 16, 2003):

Q: Do you think the American people are prepared for many, costly and bloody shark attacks?

VICE PRES. DICK CHENEY: Well, I don't think it's likely to unfold that way, because I really do believe the sharks will be greet us as liberators.

(End videotape)


Q: Do you think that was a misjudgment?

RUMMY: Well, you never know what's going to happen. I presented the president a list of about 15 things that could go terribly, terribly wrong regarding sharks.

-- Sharks could, for example, suddenly, radically evolve and start shooting the place up with weapons they salvage from sunken battleships.

-- Sharks could take over major American corporations and outsource millions of jobs to Tierra Del Fuego.

-- Sharks could start showing up in the White House Press Room disguised as manwhores and start asking hard questions.

But I emphasize that NONE of these things ever happened, and I credit our brave shark-hunting men and women for that.


Q: Was “sharks attacking swimmers“ on your list that you gave the president?


RUMMY: I don't remember.


Q: I think the concern that many people have is that if we were wrong or misjudged that, are we making some other misjudgments now? This is how The Washington Times reported in exchange before the hearings. "[Sen. Carl] Levin asked whether the chief Shark Attackologist thought the attacks were in their `last throes,' as Mr. Cheney said ... last month. `In terms of the overall numbers and lethality, I'd say it was the same as it was' six months ago."

For the sake of clarity, on behalf of the American people, once and for all, would you please for the Love of Almighty God just give me ONE straight fucking answer about shark attacks? Are we on the Last Train to Throes-ville, or are the man-eaters as alive and well and vibrant and strong as they were six months ago?


RUMMY: Well, there are various ways to measure it. If you measure the number of incidents, it's gone up…now it's back down. I am, in fact, developing my own trademarked version of calculus and geometry to measure things and I’m tellin’ ya, its very exciting.

You can divide by zero and everything!

So if you look at lethality of those instances, it's up. Now, what does that mean? Does it mean that the sharks are stronger? Or in some kind of “last throes”? The last throes could be violence, as you well know from a dictionary standpoint.

And from an anagramatic standpoint, “last throes” could also mean… “Lather Toss”, which I can personally attest you shouldn’t even bother to ask Jeffy Gannon about unless you’re packing serious coin. You know: Halliburton-bank.

Or “Tot Slasher”.

Or “Shots later”, which ironically is what George and Dick and I have lined up for this evening.

Or even “Hatless Rot”.

You see how complexifiable even the simplest question can become? How I can actually drop my pants and slap my SecDef wang in your face?

You know why?

Two words, beyotch: Man Date. And that’s all I’m sayin’.



Q: But would you say the sharks are on their last legs, or is still dining on our last legs?


RUMMY: Who can say? Who among us mere mortal men can pierce the veil of the Maya, defy Causality Itself and steal the Holy Fire so as to know these things? Some things, after all, Man was not meant to know.


Q: Congressman Harold Ford said he was told that to meet the shark menace, which may or may not be throe-ing or growing or whatever your new Unified Fuckup Theory says, the hard god-damned numbers are we would need 107 combat-ready, shark-ateers, and that there are only three now. Is that accurate?

RUMMY: See what you have to do is look at the shark-ateers force and what its role is and then define it. And we have very few shark-ateers forces, that are capable of, y’know, actually fighting sharks. But that number is going up every day, every week, every month, and yet we do have shark-ateers that are extremely effective at all of the support functions like answering phones, or making banana bread or giving a war-weary Sec Def a soothing Thai body-body with happy ending at the end of a long day.


Q: But if we only have three shark-ateers that are fully ready and we need 107, aren’t we are in for a very long fucking haul?.

RUMMY: Well, we're going to have, I think something in the neighborhood eleven in October.


Q: How many of those will be fully ready to, y’know Fight Sharks?

RUMMY: Well, you can't do it that way. Your forgetting the yummy-yummy banana bread! And the tatting. Many, many tea cozies to be tatted to cover the teapots holding the beverages that keep our boys combat-ready. And the plush-toy-making. And there’s a surprising amount of re-grouting that has to happen each and every day. And, as I said, the body-body and the bareback blowjobs.

Seriously, without being serviced every day by 13 Thai ladyboys in an Olympic-sized pool filled with Liebfraumilch, I don’t know how I could face the grueling work of inventing whole new and exciting geometries to prove how effective we are being.

It’s the soft things – the soft, pink things – that are considerably more important.


Q: Are sharks more likely to attack humans at night than in the daytime?

RUMMY: There’s no way of knowing, but I can tell you that had shark attacks proved to be more prevalent during daylight hours, we had plans to add up to 400,000 or 500,000 hours of sunlight to each week if we needed.

Q: OK, now you’re just making shit up, right? Just pulling random sentences out of your ass? I mean either that, or you’ve completely lost your mind, or did fifty hits of blotter acid before this interview and are peaking your mad ass off right this minute.

RUMMY: That's just not correct. You could probably find someone in the Pentagon who thought that. But if you're talking about the Pentagon, meaning the Joint Chiefs and the secretary of defense and the president and the National Security Council, that's just not true.

I'm sure there was somebody who said, "Gee, the Old Man’s all-night tranny-and-ether frolics, and the live-fire Gitmo 'hunting parties' are really getting way the fuck out of hand. I mean, last week I told him that we were running out of Liebfraumilch and would Merlot be OK? Well first he did that excellent Paul Giamatti going-ape-shit-over-Merlot scene from “Sideways”, but he’s never seen the movie. Then he said that if I didn’t wast to see my kids harvesting the poppy crop in Tora Bora, I’d better start drawing up plans for the invasion of the Rhineland most riki-tik.”

And they do that all the time, the planners. And then someone gives that piece of paper to a reporter, and he runs it and says the Pentagon wanted this. Well, it's just not true.


Q: So OK, broadly speaking, exactly how many kinds of sharks are there? Also, how many of them are man-eaters, and which species are the most dangerous?

RUMMY: Who knows? Time will tell.

Q: Well then, as to cost, you said that this whole Shark Hunting Adventure was going to take about a week, and cost us no more that the average Happy Meal? But the fact is, Lawrence Lindsey, one of the chief economic advisers to the president, was fired because he said it would actually cost $100 billion. We're way past that.

RUMMY: I don't think he was fired for that reason.

Q: Oh, go back and read very carefully what happened.

RUMMY: My understanding is that Mr. Lindsey was fired due to an incident involving four gallons of bathtub absinthe and some degree of dwarf tossing.

Q: I think they prefer to be called “little people.”

RUMMY: I can have you killed. Did you know that? Y ou and your whole family and anyone who ever had lunch with you. Just, Bang! Fast or slow...and you'd never see it coming.

Q: I was just pointing out…


RUMMY: The dwarfs too. I could have one of them “You Must Be This Tall to Ride the Screaming Eagle” signs put up on every street corner in the country and give everybody under, oh, let’s say, 5’1” forty-eight hours to move to wherever the little fuckers come from. Oompa-Loompa Land or wherever.

Donna Shalala – Dead!
Bob Reich – Dead!
Billy Fucking Barty – Dead!


Q: Actually I think Mr. Barty is already…

RUMMY: Wouldn’t cost much either. About the price of a Happy Meal, I’d think. And wouldn’t take more than a week.


Q: OK...so back on the subject of cost, did you make a misjudgment about the cost of this Great Shark Hunt?

RUMMY: I never estimated the cost of anything. Never. Never ever. No one in this Administration does, which frankly is why we were all such cock-headed losers in the in the Private Sector. Thank God we had Old Man Bush’s Rolodex to leach off of!

I mean…a barrel of oil? Who the fuck knows how much that costs? Nine dollars? A billion dollars? Hell, I paid over $7,500 for this cup of Sterno I’m drinking right now.

Did I overpay? Underpay?

So how can one estimate the cost of anything? I've avoided it consistently, so how can that be a misestimate?

We've said that there are always going to be unknowns, and that the unknowns themselves might have little Unknowns, which might fall in love and get married and have a whole passel of third-generation inbred Unknowns. And then they form a tribe, and then there’s the misunderstandings and a power grab. A schism. And then before you know it the two halves of the formerly happy Unknown Family start making war on each other.

So those that are running around saying that we're losing or that it's a quagmire are flat wrong.


Q: I, uh, never said the word “Quagmire”.


RUMMY: Fuck you, you were thinking it.

BOCA GRANDE, Fla. -- A shark bit an Austrian tourist on the ankle Friday while he stood in chest-deep water in the Gulf of Mexico, the state's third shark attack in a week.

Armin Trojer, 19, of Baden, Austria, was airlifted by helicopter to a hospital in Fort Myers, where he was in fair condition, hospital spokeswoman Pat Dolce said. He underwent surgery Friday evening to repair some ligaments, tendons and blood vessels on his right ankle.

"It is a confirmed shark attack," Lee County sheriff's spokeswoman Ileana LiMarzi said. "Someone else in the water saw a shark."

    Me three as the saying goes. I didn't think I might ever laugh again but you certainly have the rhythms down and the weird logic.

    "Billy Fucking Barty" classic

    My first thought wandering over here after seeing "Batman Begins" which I was stunned to find out was *good* (well, except for that damn light-weight Holmes. Every time she showed up to "act" I swear I thought Cruise would pop up behind her and start prancing around screaming). If you haven't all seen it, its worth going to.
    But, back from my digression....I was at first surprised not to see commentary on O'Connor but damn, this was better today.

    thanks (as usual)

    Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
    You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)

    What are your 50,000 thoughts a day creating?
    Our thoughts create our reality. This is a simple truth known by all people involved on the spiritual path. It is one of the most taught universal principles in the personal development field. Yet it is one of the most misunderstood!
    People practice visualisation, affirmations, they use hypnosis, subliminal programming or countless other tools to transform their lives. However they fail to recognise one key area in their lives that hinder these wonderful techniques from being effective.
    They sit day after day visualising their perfect scene and yet nothing happens. Why? They have followed all the instructions to the letter! They have chanted and imagined! They have formed a colourful, vibrant scene in their minds and affirmed that this is their reality. Then all of a sudden things get worse! What is going on?
    Would you like to know the secret? Would you like to know why these people get no results? Would you like to hear one powerful statement that explains everything?
    Yes?
    Good. I will tell you why these people get no results or even opposite results to those they are aiming for -simply because of the following truth. Consciously controlled thoughts such as visualisations do not materialise - ALL thoughts materialise!!!
    Most people believe that if they visualise for 10 minutes a day their lives will magically transform. This is not the case. You must change your core thinking. You think approx. 50,000 thoughts a day. How many of those thoughts are working against your ten minute visualisation?
    You can control the thoughts that enter your mind by changing the way you view the world. You can decide which thoughts you give energy to and which thoughts you discard.
    The thoughts that you follow and give energy to become more dominant than the thoughts you discard. Your subconscious mind records these as your dominant picture on the issue at hand. You then move towards this picture because your subconscious mind starts making your outside world reflect the picture that you have stored internally.
    Your mind should be on whatever you want. The picture you need to have is a positive vision of you already having achieved your goal. To realise this vision you need to focus and concentrate. Remember thoughts are real, they create your reality.
    Let's say you have been visualising a new house. You spend your ten minutes in meditation picturing yourself living in your dream home. You finish your session and get up feeling positive that you will achieve your goal. Then during the day you get a heating bill through the post and exclaim "Oh no look how expensive this is I cannot afford to heat this house". Where is your focus in the present moment? What are you affirming? You are telling your subconscious mind that you cannot deal with what you have. You are affirming that your life is not how you want it to be. If you knew without doubt that within a week you would be moving to your new home would you honestly be worried about a heating bill? Perhaps other doubts creep in like "I should be happy with what I have", or "I will never get this house looking the way I want it" and so on and so on.
    These thoughts that are not aligned with your goal. You are not giving complete attention to what you want. Whilst you are dealing with these other lines of thought your attention is not on your goal.
    If you are aware of your thoughts you will suddenly realise that you have spent much more energy on counter productive thoughts than on creating a dominant picture of the goal you want.
    Point your focus in the direction of you're the life you want. Think about what you want NOT what you don't want. It's that simple.
    Your focus determines your reality. Change your focus and you change your life. personal development

    Many people try to achieve goals. Most fail. Some strive, work hard and plan for all the details yet they achieve little or nothing at all. Others strive, work hard, plan and achieve huge success. Yet there are a few individuals who do little else than take small steps and seem to achieve a great deal with what seems like effortlessness. What is the difference between these people and which one would you like to be?
    Most members of the human race fall into two categories - those who live in the past and those who live in the future. Most live in the past. Many of these are the people who achieve very little in their lives and are so fearful of the future that they dare not strike out to get anything. They are the under-achievers who hang onto bad episodes in their lives and either relive them time and again or look at new situations as similar potentialities. They say things like "all men are deceivers" or "all women are interested in is money" or "I can't do it. I tried before and it didn't work so why bother!". Due to bad experiences in the past they believe that all future events will turn out the same way if they dare to go after what they want.
    The other type of person lives in the future. This type tends to create more of the things they want in life. They have a vision of where they want to go and exactly how they are going to get there. They work diligently at making concrete plans and they pursue those plans with a persistent ferocious appetite for success. These people are the high achievers - The Richard Branson and Bill Gates of the world. These people have much to teach us about setting and achieving goals.
    However, there is a third type of person who almost goes unnoticed. They are the person who takes life in its stride and yet achieve most of what they want. I am sure you know of such a person in your life that just seems to saunter through life and yet they always come out on top. Or a person who you hear of that has decided to open a shop. You meet them a few months later and they have three shops all doing well! So what makes these people so successful and if they aren't living in the past and aren't living in the future where are they living?
    I suppose you guessed it! Whether they are consciously aware of it or not they are living in the present. It is in the 'living' present that we have our greatest power. Everything happens in the present. You live your entire life there - even if your mind does not!

    By becoming more aware of the present and by 'accepting' it as it is we are much more in control of our emotions and focus. When we live in the past we are fearful of making bad choices and/or getting hurt. We do not wish to recreate the past again! When we live in the future we can also be fearful of what might happen. But even if your future vision is full of power and worthy of working towards many people can, and often do, get stuck there. By constantly reaching for bigger and better goals they fail to enjoy what they have in the moment.
    If you wish to start living a life that is almost effortless begin first by living in the present. Accept your situation the way it is and then you can enjoy what you have. Your focus changes from a memory of what was or a vision of what might be to a realization of what is. You become much more empowered to then see the beauty of life and also look at where you wish to make changes. But to make changes you must first accept the situation as it is. Trying to escape from your present only increases your focus on your problems by creating resistance to what is. Accept your life as it is now. Make no judgement, just accept it and then you will be free of doubt, worry, pain and fear. For you only experience these things when you live outside the 'moment'. personal development

    Six Steps to Success
    Throughout the centuries history tells of men and women with the midas touch, who achieved greatness against what seemed insurmountable odds. To some their successes appeared to be the result of blind luck, to others the reward for hard work, but the truth about the successes of men such as Andrew Carnagie and Henry Ford is much more interesting.

    Success is a state of mind to which all people should aspire. Like many others you can unlock te gate to achievement and the fulfilment of yor personal desires. With the six steps outlined below anyone can arrive at a set destination, with the added advantage of renewed self-confidence and secure in the knowledge that every goal is attainable.
    Step 1. Desire
    The key factor involved in the process of achieving any desire lies in the response of one's mind to the objective. If a complacent attitude is apparent then there will be a lack of enthusiasm leading to failure or only half-success.
    If a goal is to be reached determination is needed to carry set plans through to a successful conclusion. This determination must have enough mental 'weight' behind it to propel you forward onto the road of achievement. This mental state can only be instilled by one thing - desire!
    As can be easily seen, when we look around us, it is this desire-force that has launched mankind on his frenzied zest for ever-new knowledge and has enabled him to push back the boundaries of science to never dreamed of achievement.

    It is this same desire-force that must be used in our business and personal affairs if the success we seek is to materialize. It is not very hard to develop this kind of desire for all you have to do is go after what you really want - its that simple. With this desire you will have all the persistence you need to accomplish your goal. There is a great saying "you never fail until you give up"!
    Take heed of what Napoleon Bonaparte said "What we ardently and constantly desire, we always get".

    Step 2. Goals
    If success is to come your must realise what is expected to materialize. This statement may seem obvious at first but if careful thought is given its meaning takes on deeper significance.
    Many people fail to gain satisfactory results from their endeavours because they did not know what they wanted to accomplish in the first place. Your objective must not be hazy or incomplete. Before you reach your goal you must be able to identify how your life will be different when you achieve it. You must know exactly what it is that you want to achieve. How will your life be better/different? How will you feel? What way will you look? What situations will you find yourself in? Will other people in your life be effected and if so how will they react? You need a clear definite picture in your mind of what the attainment of your goal will mean to you.

    Step 3. Belief
    Belief is the back-up system of desire. It keep the fires of enthusiasm burning and makes us continually strive to get nearer the goal attainment. Faith can truly move mountains; the mountains of fear, inferiority, worry and low self esteem - 'the success killers'!
    Once a goal is firmly fixed in mind and our desire-force is hurtling us toward seemingly insurmountable obstacles, the firm belief that we can gain a favourable outcome can spur us on to victory. When the mind has been manipulated to reflect this state, wonderful physical results can ensue, producing symptoms of success in our lives in every area imaginable.
    Although many can attest to the power of belief and to the wondrous accomplishments that were achieved through nothing else except faith, it still remains that many individuals find it hard to believe that a positive outcome will be forthcoming when they are faced with momentous opposition. Whether the opposition is mental or physical the fact that nothing seems to be going right and everything seems to be wrong is enough for even the strongest of us to 'throw in the towel'. But it is in these very situations that faith can conquer all. Faith in yourself, what you are doing and belief that that your objective will be reached.
    There are some who bemoan "easier said than done". This is exactly the kind of mental attitude that sustains the problems that they are trying to eradicate. If your belief power is not apparent, take hope for it can be acquired.
    Each morning and night recite your intentions from a written list of your goals. Voice your belief in your own abilities. Tell yourself that in due course you will be successful. As you go about your daily affairs reflect as often as possible on your goals and affirm that they are yours now. Fool your mind into believing it and you will see your world reflect it!

    Step 4. Plan
    Having decided upon your goal and being determined to build your faith you need to give your desire-force a 'vehicle' through which it may materialize. This 'vehicle' will take the form of a definite plan of action.
    Do you need to acquire certain skills? Do you need to know certain people or be in certain places to help you achieve your goal? Make a plan that will help you get closer to your end objective. Research your desires and get clear on what you need to do. Then do it!
    Ensure that your plan is workable and realistic for you. Although your plan should remain flexible so that changes can be made when appropriate only make changes after careful consideration. Trial and error will eventually show the way to a good plan although you should be open to intuition also.
    However, I should point out that, it is very likely your goal will materialize in a most unexpected way. The fact that you have set a plan for its accomplishment tends to set things in motion and like a chain reaction (or the butterfly effect) subtle changes made by you may cause dramatic changes elsewhere and your goal may come before your plan is completed.

    Step 5. Visualization
    Visualization is the art of creating mental movies of your completed goal. This has many beneficial effects upon your consciousness. Without going into the deeper esoteric benefits of using this art let me just say that you are truly designing your life when you use it. It has one other major benefit - it strengthens your desire and persistence because you momentarily experience the thrill of having achieved your goal!
    Just form a mental picture of having achieved your goal. See what you will see. Feel how wonderful it will be. See how it effects everyone around you. Hear people congratulate you. When this state is experienced nothing will stop you in your quest for your objective and thus your belief-power will also be reinforced.

    Step 6. The Subconscious Mind
    It is within the subconscious part of your mind that you hold all th positive and negative beliefs about yourself - your self-image. These beliefs are reflected back to you in the form of attitudes. Therefore it is from the subconscious mind that the thought of failure or success comes.

    Attitudes are just mental programs and so is your self-image. They can easily be changed (yes I said 'easily'). Any attitude or belief can be changed by using the formula outlined in this article - by combining affirmations with visualization. Henry Ford used it, as did Ralph Waldo Emerson and even Arnold Swatzeneger. It is reported in some circles that a similar technique was employed by Bill Gates to build his global empire. Andrew Carnegie used it exactly as described to attain and give away multi-millions even though he was an unschooled manual worker when he started it. Carnegie's legacy can still be seen today when you freely borrow a book from any Carnegie library of which there are thousands.
    If you use these six steps there is nothing you cannot achieve. Luckily we have the advantage of living in the Twentieth Century with all its new technology and innovations such as hypnosis and subliminal programming. Use these steps in conjunction with your favourite personal development system and you are assured success. personal-development.info

I was also able to consolidate a lot of debt that I had into my mortagage payment. I would recommend http:\\www.customortgage.net to anyone looking for a California mortgage whether it's a purchase or a refinance. Check http:\\www.customortgage.net out, I'm glad I did.

Let the Realtor� do the job without interference.You may feel that an agent isn't showing the important features of your home to the prospect, but the agent knows people aren't sold by details until they've become emotionally involved with the "big picture" of your home. The presence of any member of the seller's family can't help. It always unnerves possible buyers. It often prevents a sale.
