The Hustler’s Playbook: The Non-Hustler’s Infection

first_imgWhen it comes to hustling, there is nothing more important than your mindset. You can understand this idea intellectually without really knowing what this means. Unfortunately, we have an example. A non-hustler posted a comment on a post on my Facebook page. His comment had nothing to do with what I posted, but here it is in its entirety”“Why don’t y’all take some time off from trying to get ahead and help someone else along? Y’all the ones making money off broke people doing all the work. Don’t get me wrong, I could sell thongs to a nun and then talk her out of them. I just don’t have the conscience to make money marking up somebody else’s work.”Let’s unpack some of this non-hustler’s infections.By trying to get ahead, you aren’t helping other people.The non-hustler believes that people who are striving to get ahead aren’t the kind of people who help other people. This is a classic example of the infection of envy. Hustlers create business, and as they grow, they need to hire people to help them create the value that they create for the people they serve.In one college economics class I took in college, the liberal professor was railing against trickle down economic. A young girl very innocently asked, “If trickle down economics doesn’t work, can you tell me how trickle up economics works?” She meant no harm, and she wasn’t being political.People with the means to help other people often do. Some people with the ability to help people don’t.  But the non-hustler is infected with envy.Capturing value is difficult.The non-hustler doesn’t understand how value creation and value capture works. Each of us is paid exactly what we are worth. We are paid for the value that we create. If you want more money, you create more value. Different outcomes are worth more or less based on how other people value them.Non-hustlers suffer the infection that causes them to misunderstand fairness. You can do what you love, but you can’t make the rest of the world value it.Selling is something you do to someone.I’m hard pressed to find a better version of this belief than what our non-hustler offers us. Nuns don’t buy thongs, and salespeople don’t sell things to people who don’t want or need them. The non-hustler makes a crude remark intended to prove that he is every bit as persuasive as any salesperson.Hustlers know that selling isn’t something you to do somebody. Selling is something you to for and with somebody, and something from which they benefit. The non-hustler is infected with the belief that one who sells is supposed to be taking advantage of someone else.There is inherent honor is being broke.The non-hustler reveals another infection when he says he is uncomfortable making money “marking up somebody else’s work.” The non-hustler has negative beliefs about money and how it is made. Minus a few people in the financial sector, no one creates real wealth stealing from other people.The non-hustler believes there is honor in being broke. This is an infection designed to protect the ego of the one infected. In their minds, it is better to be broke than to engage in the activities that generate money.I was broke until I was 13 years old and started working full time. I promise there was no inherent honor in not having money.If you would be a hustler, then examine your beliefs carefully. Do your infections serve you? Or are are they preventing you from producing the results you are capable of? Essential Reading!

A Glance Away

first_imgWithin hours of the terrible tragedy at Virginia Tech University, long before Cho Seung-Hui’s identity became known, word was out on the street, blogs and the broadcast media that the perpetrator of the biggest campus violence in U.S. history was Asian.All minorities shiver in their spines after such violent events. They pray the perpetrator is not from among them. Had the murderer been Caucasian, it is doubtful if there would be any mention of his race. But God forbid if he turns out to be a minority, or worse a foreigner. The actions of an individual are hreflected upon his entire community. It is stereotyping at its worst, an ignorant view of the world, but it is in media vogue, and it isn’t going away.Non-Korean Asians breathed a collective sigh of relief when he turned out not to be one of them, just as Koreans braced for the accompanying backlash.Even though Cho’s highly disturbed mental state came to light almost as instantly, stereotypical commentaries about academic pressures on Asians, their fears of failure and loner tendencies, etc. fanned in the media and blogosphere were inescapable.Since Virginia Tech is an engineering school, it should come as no surprise that fully a tenth of its students are Asian American or from Asia. Cho could as easily have been Chinese, or Vietnamese, or Indian. Those are statistical probabilities and social possibilities, although we do not wish them on any community. But one has to accept that there is a theoretical chance that could take a real life form. If and when that occurs, we have to be tuned into the fear that our fellow Asians, the Koreans, feel in the hours after news of this massacre broke. It is an experience known to them from the Rodney King riots in Los Angeles and to South Asians and Arabs in the aftermath of the Iran hostage crisis over two decades ago and 9/11 more recently. Ignorance is the fuel of hatred and vitriol. Tragically, now the peaceful environment of higher education has been turned into other suspect areas of American>Cho’s racial identity as a South Korean is indelibly recorded for posterity. But how many know that fully a fifth of his 33 victims were foreign born, including an Indonesian, Israeli, Egyptian, German, Peruvian and two Indians?The ever-pleasant spotlight on Indian techies, physicians, Sanjaya Malakar, Sandeep Gupta, or Kalpana Chawla, illuminated the Indian identity without pain, a trifle amusement, good-natured ridicule, but mostly admiration. There is cuteness in the air when it comes to Indians. We are embedded deep in the fabric of American life now. But the notions of collectivity present this double bind. What you claim can come back to haunt you. And yet, we are in a different cultural environment now. There are short fuses on ignorance. Hatred is only a glance away and bad news is ever possible in the next news cycle. Related Itemslast_img read more

World Badminton Championships: Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa enter last 4 to make history

first_imgJwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponnappa created history when they came back from behind to defeat the Indonesian combine of Vita Marissa and Nadya Melati 17- 21, 21- 10, 21- 17 to enter the semi-finals of the World Badminton Championships in Wembley, London on Friday.In the process, they became the first Indian pair to enter the semi-finals of the worlds. In the last four clash they will take on the fifth seeded Chinese pair of Qing Ting and Zhao Yunlei.But it was the end of the road for Saina Nehwal who went down tamely to Chinese third seed Wang Xin 15-21, 10-21. This was the third time that the Indian ace lost in the quarter-final stage of the World Championships.Jwala and Ashwini were slow off the blocks and failed to negotiate the bullet like smashes of the Indonesian pair. The Indian duo lost the opener in 18 minutes.After the pep talk from coach Gopi Chand, the Indian pair changed their tactics. They kept the shuttle low and denied Vita and Nadya the chance to attack.In their haste to finish off the points, the Indonesians made a host of errors to lose the second game 10-21.The decider was a close affair with Jwala and Ashwini holding their nerves to win 21-17.Saina was too slow in her quarter-final against Wang. The Chinese used her powerful smashes to tame the Indian. The Hyderabadi’s was unable to control the net.”I was simply off form today,” she said.Lee advancesWorld No. 1 Lee Chong Wei ended one fairytale and continued another as he reached the semifinals.advertisementHis 21-7, 21-13 win over Kevin Cordon kept him on course to become the first Malaysian ever to win a world badminton title, but finished the dream of the man from central America.Cordon was the first player from Guatemala ever to progress so far in a major tournament after three wins, including a giantkilling win over Chen Long, the fifth- seeded Chinese player.But though he managed to strike a few good blows and earned enthusiastic support from the Wembley crowd, Cordon could not match a Lee who has been in the best form of his career.It was followed by an admission from the world’s leading player that, depending on the state of his aching body, he might retire after the London 2012 Olympics in the same Wembley arena.Lee, best known for speedy movement and accurate rallying which applies cumulative pressure to opponents, was once again minded to attempt shorter, more spectacular conclusions to the rallies.He accelerated from 11-5 to 16-5 during which he appeared to be unstoppable.In the second game he appeared to relax a little but made another thrust from 13-10 to 19-12, during which Cordon did well to stay in some of the rallies.The Malaysian then ended the match spectacularly, diving full length to make a defensive block, getting up and turning to make a retrieve in the back corner and then concluding with a rapier smash.- With inputs from agencieslast_img read more

The Ashes: James Anderson likes England’s chances in pink-ball Adelaide Test

first_imgEngland seamer bowler Jimmy Anderson says he’s confident he can make a pink ball behave just like a red one when the historic first day-night Ashes Test against Australia begins Saturday at the Adelaide Oval.Bowler-friendly conditions are expected. Australia won the first of five Tests between the teams by 10 wickets at the Gabba in Brisbane.”The red Kookaburra and the pink … are not that different,” Anderson said Thursday. “From a bowler’s point of view … we will go about it the same way.”The pink ball has swung markedly, particularly at night, in past day-night Tests in the South Australian capital.Anderson and his pace-bowling colleagues also found conditions to their liking in England’s day-night tour game in Adelaide before the Ashes series.England won the Adelaide tour match against a Cricket Australia XI by 192 runs, with Anderson taking three for 12.”It was pretty good conditions for bowlers,” Anderson said. “People think it’s going to be a good week for the bowlers but you have still got to bowl well, even when conditions are in your favor.”Here is somewhere where we can use our skills – pink ball, under lights, something different. It could be somewhere that will really suit our bowling attack.”Australia captain Steve Smith, who batted for more than 8 hours and was 141 not out in Australia’s first innings in Brisbane, will attempt to counter Anderson’s claims.”There is still that small matter of someone (Smith) making 140-odd and that is something we have to deal with,” Anderson said. “We know the dangers of David Warner up at the top as well and we have to keep working hard to try and get them out because we know how pivotal they are in their lineup.”advertisementAustralia is expected to name an unchanged lineup for the Adelaide Test.last_img read more

Rashford Gives United 1-0 Win in Europa League Semifinals

first_imgVIGO, Spain (AP) — Marcus Rashford was decisive again, scoring from a free kick in the second half for Manchester United to beat Celta Vigo 1-0 in the first leg of the Europa League semifinals on Thursday.Rashford, who netted an extra-time winner against Anderlecht in the quarterfinals, drove a right-foot strike over the wall and into the far left corner in the 67th minute, securing United the advantage going into the second leg in Manchester next week.“It’s a positive result that leaves us with the advantage, but it’s a small advantage,” United coach Jose Mourinho said.The Europa League is the only European club competition United has yet to win. It also gives United a good chance of returning to the Champions League, as it sits in fifth place in the Premier League.Celta, playing in its first major European semifinal, lost for the first time in its last six European games.“We are going to have to go there and score goals, as we did other times,” Celta coach Eduardo Berizzo said. “We play in a similar way at home and away, we will try to be more effective than we were today.”Celta scored goals in all six away matches in the Europa League. It overcame a 1-0 loss at home in the round of 32 to Shakhtar Donetsk, and advanced by 2-0 win in the second leg. Celta also defeated Real Madrid away from home in the Copa del Rey, and eventually eliminated Madrid.Rashford made the trip to Vigo by nearly 1,000 United fans worthwhile. Celta goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez took a couple of small steps the other way just before the teenage striker took his free kick, and wasn’t able to come back in time to make the stop.It was a mostly even match in front of nearly 30,000 fans at Balaidos Stadium, but United had most of the significant chances.Alvarez had to make three great saves in the first half to keep United scoreless.The first was a spectacular one-handed dive to stop a curling shot from Rashford from going into the top corner in the 20th. Alvarez then charged from his net in the 35th to make a leg save that prevented Henrikh Mkhitaryan from finding the net after entering the area free of markers, and four minutes later the goalie deflected a close-range shot by Jesse Lingard.“We played well and controlled the game against a team that knows how to attack,” United midfielder Ander Herrera said. “It’s not easy to keep a clean sheet against Celta.”United goalie Sergio Romero also had to come up with a difficult save, tipping a Pione Sisto shot over the crossbar in the 59th.Celta had one of its best chances early in the game, a close-range header by midfielder Daniel Wass that missed wide in the 11th. Forward Iago Aspas also came close with a header early in the second half.“We will fight until the end in Old Trafford,” Aspas said.In the other semifinal, Ajax defeated Lyon 4-1 in Amsterdam in the first leg on Wednesday.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Felt embarrassed and humiliated at Manchester airport: Wasim Akram

first_imgFormer Pakistan cricket team captain and legendary fast bowler Wasim Akram on Tuesday took to social media to reveal his traumatic experience at the Manchester airport where he was mistreated by the authorities.Wasim Akram posted details of how airport officials behaved rudely with him and didn’t take proper care of his diabetes medication. Patients have to carry diabetes medication in cold cases but Akram was asked to take them out and put them in a plastic bag.Akram was first diagnosed with Type I diabetes in 1997 when he was the captain of the Pakistan team and at the peak of his career. He has been taking insulin injections multiple times a day ever since.”Very disheartened at Manchester airport today, I travel around the world with my insulin but never have I been made to feel embarrassed.

first_imgThe downfall of former Iowa Senate Majority Leader Bill Dix has become a cash windfall for the Republican Party of Iowa.The party accepted a $522,000 contribution from Dix’s campaign on March 26th, two weeks after the Shell Rock farmer quit the Legislature.Dix resigned after video was released showing the married lawmaker kissing a lobbyist in a Des Moines bar.Dix had previously faced criticism after the state paid a $1.75 million settlement to former Senate GOP communications director Kirsten Anderson, who was fired after complaining about sexual harassment.Anderson says Dix should have considered giving the money to the general fund to offset the settlement costs, which is allowed by state law.Iowa GOP spokesman Jesse Dougherty defended the move, saying “the money was raised to help elect and defend a Republican majority this fall.”Governor Kim Reynolds says it was an “appropriate decision” for Iowa Republicans to accept a $522,000 donation from Dix.Reynolds told reporters Wednesday she was “fine” with the Republican Party of Iowa accepting the contribution from the former Iowa Senate Majority Leader.last_img read more

Atom, Humber & famous footballers’ dogs

Sánchez Manchester United Premier League The Chile international has brought his canine companions with him to Manchester, and here Goal takes a look at the most famous dogs in football When Manchester United signed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, they were not just getting a 29-year-old attacker, but also everything Sanchez brings on and off-the-field.This includes the Chilean’s now-famous dogs Atom and Humber, who were hugely adored by the Arsenal faithful and will now be warmly embraced by Red Devils fans.Much was made of Sanchez’s signing video, but as well as the forward appearing in a Manchester United kit with number seven on the back, his dogs also appeared on social media sporting brand new personalised jerseys.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Atom and HumberThe most famous dogs in football, Sanchez’s pets Atom and Humber even have their own Instagram account. The Manchester United forward regularly shares snaps of his pooches on his own Instagram page, but set up a second special social media profile just for cute photos of his pets.During his time at Arsenal, Sanchez regularly was seen with his two dogs, who gained their own following among Gunners supporters. Arsenal fans even created a banner for Atom and Humber that was hung at the Emirates until the Chile international left for Premier League rivals United.”Atom is one of the characters in a movie called Real Steel,” Sanchez told Arsenal’s official website in 2016. “Atom the robot is very old and apparently useless but when he starts fighting he beats the best robots in the world.”I like the movie so much that I thought I would call my first dog Atom. My other dog Humber reminds me of my brother Humberto. My brother is a very sweet guy, just like Humber is.”Sanchez also revealed that the dogs are not just popular in England, but are famous back in his home country after appearing in an advertising campaign for a dog food company.”I just had the idea of creating an Instagram account for them so people could follow what they do,” he continued. “The thing is both became famous in Chile after starring in Master Dog’s advert.”I upload videos or pictures to their accounts whenever I can and I even saw their pictures on billboards when I went to Chile. They were smiling for the advert: what great acting! It really made me laugh.”Some fans are unsure which dog is which, but it is easy to tell the difference as Atom is a darker colour than Humber.Footballers’ Dogs Sanchez is not the only famous footballer to have a canine companion, with many of the world’s top names owning dogs. Lionel Messi received a present of a mastiff puppy from wife Antonella, and within a few months, the massive animal had grown into its name – Senor Hulk!Harry Kane’s pair of labradors are named after two of his favourite American Football stars Tom Brady and Russell Wilson, while Mesut Ozil’s pug takes his name from the Rocky films. Neymar’s dog Poker was given his unusual moniker by his card-game loving owner.The ever-eccentric Mario Balotelli adopted two dogs from a rescue centre while at Liverpool, and even brought them to training with him. Initially, reports indicated that the pair of Staffordshire bull terriers were called Stevie and G after Reds captain Steven Gerrard, but they actually were given clever names from the Super Mario videogame – Luigi and Bowser!

Many of these even have official Twitter accounts, with thousands of followers. Blackburn’s Rover the Dog uses his Twitter account to keep fans updated of charitable events and post photos of fan events.Barnsley’s Toby the Tyke got into a spot of bother in 2003 after throwing sweets into the crowd during a game, with one fan lodging a complaint after a sweet hit a young girl in the eye. The incident caused the mascot’s actor David Betts to resign from his position after spending seven years putting on the dog suit for Barnsley games.During the 1990s, Spanish football’s governing body Liga Profesional de Futbol (LFP) used a dog called Goti as their mascot before replacing him with a more modern logo. The 1994 World Cup in the United States had a dog as its official mascot – one which bore the cumbersome title “Striker, the World Cup pup”.Before the men-in-suits mascots of today’s football, teams actually used real live animals as lucky charms before games. This is still continued in some parts of the world, with Chilean side Colo Colo (a former team of Alexis Sanchez) bringing out rescue dogs with the players before games in order to help them find forever homes.

In Test matches, he is a pure bowler. But in 50-over cricket, I would rather have a batsman and a spinner,” Manjrekar had said.Ravindra Jadeja was far from impressed with Manjrekar’s analysis and took to Twitter to say that he has had enough of Manjrekar’s ‘verbal diarrhoea’.Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

UN agency distributes blankets to victims of xenophobic violence in South Africa

22 May 2008The United Nations refugee agency has distributed blankets and mats to the victims of a wave of violent xenophobic attacks in South Africa’s Gauteng province since last weekend that have killed dozens of people and forced an estimated 13,000 people to flee their homes. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said it has handed out about 2,000 blankets and 2,000 mats in several police stations across Gauteng, which is centred on Johannesburg, the country’s most populous city.Many of the displaced – who include refugees, asylum-seekers and other migrants – have sought protection from the angry mobs at police stations, but are sleeping in the open nearby, according to a statement issued by UNHCR yesterday.The South African Government has opened “joint operation centres” at police stations and community centres to house some of the displaced and to coordinate aid delivery from humanitarian agencies to the victims.UNHCR staff who have visited some of the centres say many lack sufficient toilets and washing facilities to house the sudden arrivals. In one community hall in the town of Germiston, about 2,800 people have crowded in to find shelter.One of the arrivals, Filizarda Mbanza, told UNHCR staff that she fled her shack on the outskirts of Germiston at the weekend after a neighbour told her that a crowd was approaching.“I was terrified!” she said. “My husband was at work and I was alone with the baby. What was I to take from our shack? The warnings were drawing closer and I was in a panic. I had to get out [of] there before my baby and I were attacked.”Ms. Mbanza, who has a three-month-old baby, said she does not know if her husband is still alive.Doudou Diène, the UN Special Rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, told UN Radio that this week’s events indicate just how widespread xenophobia is in today’s world.He said he was especially saddened by the fact that these events are taking place in South Africa.“Sadness, because this happened in a country where the majority of the population has been marginalized, institutionally discriminated with violence for years, and a country which has liberated itself by fighting that institutional racism.” read more
