Maquiavellian!!!

“For we see men, in those activities that carry them towards the goal they all share, which is the acquisition of glory and riches, proceed differently. One acts with caution, while another is headstrong; one is violent, while another relies on skill; one is patient, while another is the opposite: and any one of them, despite their differences in their methods, may achieve his objective… This happens solely because of the character of the times, which either suits or is at odds with their way of proceeding… If the times and circumstances develop in such a way that his behavior is appropriate, he will flourish; but if the times and circumstances change, he will be destroyed for he will continue to behave in the same way…

I conclude, then, that… men flourish when their behavior suits the times and fail when they are out of step. I do think, however, that it is better to be headstrong than cautious, for fortune is a lady. It is necessary, if you want to master her, to beat and strike her. And one sees she more often submits to those who act boldly than those who proceed in a calculating fashion. Moreover, since she is a lady, she smiles on the young, for they are less cautious, more ruthless, and overcome her with their boldness.”

Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince

In life you have to use 50% virtus and 50% luck because if a prince has only luck but doesn't use his intelligence to predict situations he will not remain as a prince for long. What he is saying is that luck needs to be conquered with boldness and calculating thinking needs to be used in the same measure. Cesare Borgia is the perfect example of a prince who used both fortune and Virtus.

Dreams do come true…

 

Million dollar baby without the boxing ...
There are so many things I have always wanted to do and never got the chance to, places I would like to go, that patchwork quilt made of all the fabric I keep stuffed everywhere in the house. In fact if I start to think about it critically about myself it will be torture so what I do is think about that movie, yeah THAT MOVIE GIVES ME COMFORT because in “Million Dollar Baby” the girl is 30 plus years old and she has a dream and goes after it with all that she has even against all odds she goes for the coach she wants but he spends the whole movie saying she is too old and just starting so she has no chance. Ok I admit it that the end is sad but even then it’s an inspiring movie because it makes me value life and accept the age I am now, gives me hope because she proves they were wrong to put her down, she makes herself be admired and loved by the coach and by love I mean fraternal love.  I haven't made it clear until now that I don’t want to become a professional boxer and never had career ambitions. In fact today, apart from one stone over my mental images, I pretty much achieved all of my childhood dreams and mental images of how my life would be.

 

Winning competitions

   Pinaholic manic compulsive 2

So I was before addicted to freebie websites, bargains and samples and had forgotten that one night I got in a few free competitions on magazine insiders, yes I know! I had never won the lottery and probably would not win there too... But I did it anyway just to spite my odds... 
A few weeks ago I received an e-mail saying that I won a competition on a magazine so I gave  my address details and forgot about it again expecting to receive some free samples the size of a peanut and some adverts at home... This week I got a parcel and felt like Santa really exists ... Those pics were taken to prove to you and are self-explanatory ...
