Happiness: something everyone hopes to achieve in his or her lifetime. Such a simple concept, yet many have trouble realizing how to obtain it. Sometimes we unintentionally create our own obstacles that prevent us from achieving this goal. It is ever so important to realize the ways we are limiting ourselves so we can fully reach happiness.

15 Things Happy People Don’t Do


Why people hate successful people ? Keep Calm and Carry on Succeeding

Negativity ? I do not recognise the meaning of the word – Tony Evans

I cant believe I am writing about Nega…. , its hard for me to even write it NEGATIVITY and Negative influence . Why so ? I am glad you asked , when you become successful and you are part of a hugely successful company , you will have to deal with people saying negative things about you and company .

Our CEO Nigel Green has written a posting on his blog on dealing with negativity :

Nigel Green deVere Group Scam! Dealing with haters!

1.“What others think of you is none of your business”
2.If you are really effective at what you do, most of the things said
about you will be negative
3.If someone tells you something cannot be done, it is just their way of
saying they cannot do it
4.“Living well is the best revenge.” (George Herbert)
5.10% of people will find a way to take anything personally
6. “If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid”
7. “Keep calm and carry on”
This is a man that has created a company with over $8 billion USD under management 70 office . He has many people sending him abusive emails . Calling him scam artist , bankrupt . I personally known him for over 8 years ,I can tell you he’s just a man that has a lot of hard work ethic and thus very successful .

My personal view can easily be shown in 4 point :

  1. Jealous – Some people can’t stand someone else’s prosperity. They are naturally resentful of it. Negative people just focus on the fact that successful people acquired something good that they didn’t – and negative people hate and resent that .
  2. Negative people / Less successful people look bad against successful people .They may actually be challenged to improve themselves, ease of life may soon be shaken up. That’s not what they want as that involved hard work .
  3. People Think you don’t deserve it . You just been ‘lucky’ , I have found all successful people have been lucky , totally agree we are lucky to know hard work is what makes you lucky .
  4. Familiarity- it breeds contempt .Successful people change with the times to survive and succeed .

Don’t let negativity & toxic people rent space in your head ,Raise the rent & kick them out


Lets lock and load ,

7 New Social Class Level Calculator – What class are you ?

A friend of mine sent me this and this caught my eye .

No more 3 “class system” but 7 levels !

As I read through it and did the quiz what I found / saw is that if you want to be successful / rich there is one common factor . Successful people deal with successful people & are friends with successful people .

Birds of a feather flock together

Also successful people do certain activities that other people don’t ,socialising is key .

In short if you want start a journey to becoming successful you need to act and be around successful people .
Also a lot of hard work is needed , my dad always said :

there’s no substitution to hard work

Maybe we should listen a bit more to them 🙂

Happy Thursday,

The new classes are defined as:

Elite– the most privileged group in the UK, distinct from the other six classes through its wealth. This group has the highest levels of all three capitals

Established middle class – the second wealthiest, scoring highly on all three capitals. The largest and most gregarious group, scoring second highest for cultural capital

Technical middle class – a small, distinctive new class group which is prosperous but scores low for social and cultural capital. Distinguished by its social isolation and cultural apathy

New affluent workers – a young class group which is socially and culturally active, with middling levels of economic capital

Traditional working class – scores low on all forms of capital, but is not completely deprived. Its members have reasonably high house values, explained by this group having the oldest average age at 66

Emergent service workers – a new, young, urban group which is relatively poor but has high social and cultural capital

Precariat, or precarious proletariat – the poorest, most deprived class, scoring low for social and cultural capital
