8 Wealthiest people of 1923

In 1923 , eight of the wealthiest people in the world met . Their combined wealth , estimated, exceeded the wealth of the government of the United States (there was no Apple and recession then). These men knew how to make a living and accumulate wealth . It’s very interesting to read about what happened to these 8 wealthiest people in the world , 25 years later …..

So 25 years later…….
1. President of the largest Steel Company , Charles Schwab , died bankrupt, living on borrowed money for five years before his death
2. President of the largest Gas Company , Howard Hubson , went insane
3. One of the greatest commodity traders , Arthur Cutton , died insolvent
4. President of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney , was sent to jail
5. A member of the President’s Cabinet , Albert Fall , was pardoned from jail
6. The greatest “bear” on Wall Street , Jessie Livermore , committed suicide
7. President of the world’s greatest monopoly , Ivar Krueger , committed suicide
8. President , Bank of International Settlement , Leon Fraser , committed suicide

So, what happened? Where did they go wrong? They most certainly made lots and lots of money. They were very wealthy . But what did they lack then? In fact , as much as they knew how to make a living, they forgot to make a life! Instead, they just made Money! Money provides comfort and status, so true. It also provides food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, clothes for the needy; and shelter for the homeless, yet, noteworthy to mention that is only a medium of exchange.

Our education system needs to share two kinds of education. One that teaches us skills on how to make a living ; and one that teaches us values on how to live life , free from entrapment of chasing after an illusion of happiness. Many people are entrapped in that chase neglecting health , family , the social responsibilities, the environment and moment by moment of real deep fresh breathing . The kids are sleeping when we leave home . They are sleeping when we come home . Twenty years later, we WILL turn back , and they’ll all be gone . Same goes for our health , dreams, and purpose in life . Twenty years later , they will all be gone or a far distant memory .

Without water , a ship cannot move . The ship needs water . Yet , if the water gets into the ship, the ship will face problems and potentially sink. Similarly , we live in a time where earning is a necessity ; but let not the earning enter our hearts ; for , what was once
a means of living , will become heavy chain, an entrapment and a means of destruction !!!??? So take a moment and ask yourself ….

“Has the water entered my ship ?”

Top 10 Self Improvement Activities‏

 

These self improvement activities will help you become more productive, get into the positive state of mind and achieve better quality of life.

 

In this article you will also find out how to use your energy effectively, what is the quickest way to achieve personal growth and how to excel in every activity.

 

1st Self Improvement Activity: Use your energy on important things

If you want to succeed in life, you should not waste your energy on activities that do not bring any benefits.

 

Such useless activities include surfing the Internet without any purpose, watching TV, worrying and wasting money.

 

When you are involved in such activities, you have no or little energy left for activities that can create a better future. It is worth prioritising and accomplishing important tasks first, and then if you still have enough energy, you may decide to do the unimportant.

 

2nd Self Improvement Activity: Focus on one task at a time

 

If you want to get perfect results, you should only concentrate on one activity. This way all your energy will go into it and you will accomplish it perfectly.

 

If you waste your energy on several things at the same time, you will get average results because you will divide your energy between the activities.

 

3rd Self Improvement Activity: Control your thinking

 

To avoid chaos in your mind resulting in chaos in the outside world, you should try to observe your thoughts. Once you start doing that, you will notice how many negative thoughts you get daily.

 

By observing negative thinking you will be able to emotionally disengage from it. As a result, negative thinking will affect you less and you will notice that your days are getting more peaceful and positive.

 

4th Self Improvement Activity: Get organised

 

When you live in an organised manner, you do not suffer from stress and your life is peaceful and balanced.

 

To start living this way, you should start planning your day in advance. This will eliminate any stress caused by being late to a meeting or forgetting to complete some task.

 

You should also live in tidiness because by keeping your home clean you also keep your mental state clear and peaceful. Such mental state will benefit you in many ways, including improved memory and less negativity.

 

5th Self Improvement Activity: Live in the present

 

 Although this self improvement activity may seem strange to you, it is a very important activity that many ignore. The majority of people do not live in the present. They either dwell on their past or daydream about the future. They seem to forget the most important time of all – the present.

 

You should enjoy every present moment because your current state of mind always manifests in the outside world, creating your future accordingly.

 

Therefore if your main mood is very positive, you will experience only happy days. However, if you dwell on negative thoughts, you are sure to encounter many obstacles and misfortunes in the present and days to come.

 

6th Self Improvement Activity: Complete each task in a perfect manner

 

Whenever you are working on some project, try to accomplish it in the best way possible. Always ask yourself ‘Is this project turned out as perfect as it could possibly be?’ If the answer is no, try to correct or add something to it until there is nothing that you can improve.

 

This way you will make sure that each single task you accomplish is done in an excellent manner. By doing this you will create successful future because you cannot possibly fail if you only get perfect results.

 

Also, when you entirely focus on one task excluding everything else, you will notice that you start enjoying the task. If you concentrate on the task but still do not enjoy it, that means that you probably see the task as a means to an end rather than the process.

 

You should start focusing on the process itself to find enjoyment in the task. Such enjoyment will fuel motivation and you will accomplish everything quicker and better.

 

If you enjoy your work, you will put only positive energy into it. As a result, your completed tasks will bring you success.

 

7th Self Improvement Activity: Challenge yourself

 

Nothing develops you more than challenges. Challenges force you to shift your comfort zone, experience new situations and make you grow. Without challenges life would be very boring and depressing.

 

Challenges are necessary for every human being who is seeking quality life. Only through trial and error you realise who you really are, which activities you like and what preferences you have.

 

You can easily measure the success of a person by the amount of challenges s/he had.

 

8th Self Improvement Activity: Read personal development books

 

There is nothing more important than searching information about self improvement. Without reading any self improvement books or articles you cannot improve yourself.

 

9th Self Improvement Activity: Socialize only with positive people

 

Positive people can inspire, empower and make you happy. It is so much worth to be at least once in a while with positive people rather than constantly spend time with negative friends or relatives.

 

If you spend your days with, for example, lazy people, you may notice that you are becoming lazy.

 

If all your friends’ main qualities are negative, try to avoid all of them. This way you will not be affected in a negative way and after some time will start attracting positive people.

 

10th Self Improvement Activity: Exercise

Daily exercise develops determination, focus and patience. It improves your health and strengthens your body. It makes you more active, positive and invincible.

 

People who exercise every day are always perceived as strong-willed and disciplined.

 

Conclusion

 

These personal improvement activities are sure to put you on the track to success. I hope that you will apply the steps in this article and, as a result, will greatly improve the quality of your life.
