Why I love what I do

Quote

My customers belong to two distinct niches.

The first niche comprises persons engaged in doing the best they can to extend their personal capabilities through mastering their power of thought. For this purpose I share with them a most valuable knowledge in my first book.

The second niche is harder to reach but as hard as this may be, the greater my conviction that shedding some light in a long established dark tunnel is for the benefit of individuals as well as of the society to which they belong.

A story about true skills

Around 1999 I happened to work in the same department with the late Patrick Smith*. Patrick was endowed with rare mathematical abilities. He could work out all sorts of programs with spread sheet analysis. For some strange reason, the director did not like him and started treating him in a quite odious manner.

He first took away his schedule of duties and transferred it to someone else. Next he moved away his secretary to the pool. After that he took away the office computer leaving him without access to the eMcEaR* data.

All these left Patrick with much less to do and with spare time. Patrick brought his own laptop with him in the office and concentrated his attention the stock exchange technical analysis.

A few weeks later, he invited me for lunch, as he managed to gain around ₤75.000 (USD 125.000 | EUR 100.000) in London and New York. The following week, I met Pamela*, one of the eMcEaR staff in the corridor.

– My boss invited me for lunch today, she announced to me. – He made gains from buying and selling shares in the Stock Exchange, she went on.

– Who is your boss? I asked her. – Patrick, she replied. – Enjoy your lunch, I said.

Then Patrick appeared in his way to the officers’ mess accompanied by Armand Andrews*. He invited me again for lunch. – No thank you, you offered me a lunch last week. Armand heard the conversation. He said to me: “no this week Patrick made new gains, so do join us for lunch.” I could not join the free lunch.

In the meantime, I had realized that taking away Patrick’s schedule of duties was unconstitutional, under article 127.3 of the constitution, which bids as follows: “The powers, functions and duties of the Accountant-General provided in this chapter may be exercised by him in person or by such subordinate officers acting under and in accordance with his instructions.”

This was so, because Patrick belonged to the ranks of the Accountant-General subordinates, while the new incumbent did not. Certainly, Patrick’s ill treatment and humiliation did not deter him from being successful.

However, this case is unique and a very rare exception. On the other hand, unconstitutionality, it did not concern him. He sat near the wall looking at the street backgrounds, reading a journal, featuring a brand new car.

A new sports vehicle for him and another automobile for his wife as you know were within the realms of this journal. He happened to know, they came from a different anecdote.

As now I am an author with my digital books on Kindle, I whole heartedly recommend to you to get them downloaded on your Kindle and practice the titles therein to help you develop your skills that give rise to chance and to take advantage of the chances that give rise to skill.
