Arnold Schwarzenegger speech 6 rules for success

Arnold’s 6 Rules to Success:

1. Trust yourself

Many young people are getting so much advice from their parents and from their teachers and from everyone. But what is most important is that you have to dig deep down, dig deep down and ask yourselves, who do you want to be? Not what, but who. Figure out for yourselves what makes you happy, no matter how crazy it may sound to other people.

2. Break the Rules

Break the rules, not the law, but break the rules. It is impossible to be a maverick or a true original if you’re too well behaved and don’t want to break the rules. You have to think outside the box. That’s what I believe. After all, what is the point of being on this earth if all you want to do is be liked by everyone and avoid trouble?

3. Don’t Be Afraid to Fail

Anything I’ve ever attempted, I was always willing to fail. So you can’t always win, but don’t afraid of making decisions. You can’t be paralyzed by fear of failure or you will never push yourself. You keep pushing because you believe in yourself and in your vision and you know that it is the right thing to do, and success will come. So don’t be afraid to fail.

4. Don’t Listen to the Naysayers

How many times have you heard that you can’t do this and you can’t do that and it’s never been done before? I love it when someone says that no one has ever done this before, because then when I do it that means that I’m the first one that has done it. So pay no attention to the people that say it can’t be done. I never listen to, “You can’t.” (Applause) I always listen to myself and say, “Yes, you can.”

5. Work Your Butt Off

You never want to fail because you didn’t work hard enough. Mohammed Ali, one of my great heroes, had a great line in the ’70s when he was asked, “How many sit-ups do you do?” He said, “I don’t count my sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting. When I feel pain, that’s when I start counting, because that’s when it really counts.” That’s what makes you a champion. No pain, no gain.
But when you’re out there partying, horsing around, someone out there at the same time is working hard. Someone is getting smarter and someone is winning. Just remember that. Now, if you want to coast through life, don’t pay attention to any of those rules. But if you want to win, there is absolutely no way around hard, hard work. Just remember, you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.

6. Give Back

Whatever path that you take in your lives, you must always find time to give something back, something back to your community, give something back to your state or to your country.

Watch your thoughts for they become words – Video

Watch your thoughts for they become words.
Watch your words for they become actions.
Watch your actions for they become habits.
Watch your habits for they become your character.
And watch your character for it becomes your destiny.
What we think, we become.”

Is this the end to the Nikkei rally and Yen weakness?

When the market opened in Tokyo stocks were widening their losses through the morning session Monday, with the Nikkei tumbling nearly 580 points to move around 14,000. The yen weighed on exporters while players remained jittery over recent volatility in the market.

Is this clients / investors selling ??? Technically yes , but reality is they are selling due to margin call .

This is how the market stands .


Nikkei 225
14,157.34 – 455.11 -3.11%
















Yesterday Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko backed bullish views on asset marker and said Japan could cope with the increase interest rates .The minutes memo from the BOJ meeting on April 26 showed that a few members see difficulties in hitting the 2% inflation. When Kuroda came to power he unveiled a plan to double money in the economy over two years by ramping up bond purchases, chasing a target of 2 % inflation .

I don’t believe anything has changed in Japan the fundamentals have started to change , consumer spending is up and exports have increased also . I still see Nikkei going towards 17000 year end.

Greed and Fear that what moves the market . At the moment fear is rampant ,

New pension rules make QROPS UK pension transfers stronger

New pension rules make QROPS UK pension transfers stronger.

The HM Revenue & Customs today proposed changes to how QROPS are reported – changes that will strengthen legitimate transfers – another indicator of how recognised QROPS has become.

deVere CEO Nigel Green broke the news on his blog today, shortly after the announcement, citing that the deVere Group fully supports the HMRC proposed changes surrounding QROPS UK pension transfers, as they will introduce ‘even more robust reporting procedures’.

Nigel Green believes that the move will also further protect clients who have already or are thinking about those transferring their pensions out of the UK and strengthen their retirement prospects abroad.

Under the new rules, former QROPS will have to follow reporting requirements, even if they are no longer listed as QROPS. Failure to do so will result in hefty fines.

Additionally, a UK scheme administrator will have to notify the date on which the member left the UK, whether the member is still a UK resident and then notify HMRC when the member ceases to be UK resident.

Nigel Green upheld the HMRC move and said that the QROPS UK pension transfer proposals highlight that the UK is fully committed to allowing free movement of capital under EU law.

Notably, more than 10,000 UK pensions were transferred out of the UK last year, 2,250 of which were administered by the deVere Group.
