The Castro mafia letting people travel freely what a joke

The two destroyers of Cuba Fidel and Raul are now playing the open democracy game within the confines of a jail which is Cuba. It is all a public relations stunt. They did the same things when they announced the permission to let small business operate within the Island. Slowly but surely all the  regulations and restrictions brought it all  back to reality. It turns out it was another scam from the Castro mafia. The same will come about with this new lifting of the travel ban. Already the restriction, regulations and can't dos are becoming public knowledge, for example if you have any profession of value to the country you will not be able to travel freely, that means that only those hanging out on the streets corners playing dominos can travel. All Doctors, scientist, military personal and all valuable parts of society continue to have restrictions. The one good thing about this law is that it would permit the Castro brothers, their families as well as members of their gang to travel freely and leave the island for 24 months, giving Cubans some relief, since they the Castro's add no value to the Cuban society they have no restrictions. It is also up to the government to issue passports. You cannot simply grab your bags and get on the plane you have to go through an approval process(we all know what that means). You must have a specific objective to travel that the so called government must approve. The well know cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez says she has been turned down twenty times for permission to travel. The Cuban mob is up to is old tricks. It is time for the Castro brothers to try out this new  law themselves and travel freely forever with no return or even travel to hell and stay there. What a shame to have these gangsters still in power on rampage of destruction, oppression, corruption and tremendous human rights violations. Come on and we are all standing here and watching this happen.

Wild Company a great story

I am reading a great book called " Wild company" is the story of the two founders of "Banana Republic" the clothing brand. They started with $1,500, Patricia and Mel Ziegler. It is a wonderful story, very well written and a fantastic read. It also very inspiring for us entrepreneurs. How money is just one of the elements of the success equation. I highly recommend this book and may this  story repeat itself millions of times through this land.

The Venezuelan regime: Fraud Nation

The Venezuelan Dictator got way with another stolen election. He contaminated the pool of votes with thousands and maybe million of none Venezuelan citizens that he registered illegally with Cubans, Iranians and Chinese. He has also had members of his party vote several times under false identities of people that have been dead for many years. Lets also add to the fact that he has been using state funds for his campaign as well as the PDVSA the main oil company as the main organizer and the funding arm for the dictator rallies and events. They have threaten  public worker with the lose of their jobs if they do not vote for the regime, same with business people that have contracts with with Government, if they do not vote for Chavez they lose their contracts, mind you, more then ninety percent of the Venezuelan economy is dependent on  government business. That have intimidated journalist, Television stations and Newspapers that are not in favor of the authoritarian regime with suspension of their licenses like the case of  RCTV the most watched Television station in the country which was close down. Prior to the elections they open up the government's coffers to give thousands of gifts to the millions of poor people to make sure they voted for the regime. In the meantime the opposition  had none or very little access to the media, no access to public funds and no government protection against the Dictators street gangs. Next time you go fill your car up with gas at Citigo (own by the Venezuela regime) remember you are helping this monster continue to destroy a country, families and people lives. If you are politicians why are you buying oil from these rough nations? Lets have a conscious for once. Lets stop these animals(with all due respect to the real animals) for once and for all.

People management

I wonder if in a not so distance future people will have personal managers like people have personal trainers. If you are willing to have someone help you train your body why not have some help you manage your career and your life. Most of the top actors, writers, directors, celebrities and athletes have a manager and an agent or just an agent. I believe in the near future lots of executives, creators, knowledge workers, university professors will have managers to improve the percentage of their potential that will be expressed in the world instead of just staying dormant. It is just a thought  and potentially a good idea.

Make the planet a nourishing and loving place to live. The heart is the real source of our actions and ideas. Let's really make quality of life and human nourishment the priority.

Respect nature. We are nature; it is our duty to respect, protect and learn from nature rather than conquer her.

The Inner Journey. The real revolution is our inner growth. As long as we do not reinvent our inner landscape, our outer reality will continue to be limited, stale and violent.

Live a holistic lifestyle. The mind, the heart, the spirit and the body are one interrelated organism.

Business to transform the world. Business is a very powerful force that must be used to transform the earth. Compassion, entrepreneurship, innovation and the Spirit are the core elements of this transformation. Business based on innovative chaos, taking risk, intuition, heart, synthesis, non-linear skills, a holistic approach, conservation, quality, cooperation and partnership are the focal points of a new business paradigm.

Use technology to unite people. Let's create technologies that bring us together and help us develop lives of greater quality. The Internet is a manifestation of our desire to be connected. We aspire to connect to each other and become whole.

The Media. Media must inform, uplift, educate, inspire and unite. Not manipulate, instill fear, and keep people from developing their inner greatness.

Individual versus the collective. The individual must become responsible for his or her well-being, inner journey and self-improvement. The government cannot do it. Let's empower our selves, hearts, and thoughts.

Government small and non-intrusive. The government is simply a traffic cop. The responsible individual is the engine of growth, order and prosperity.

High self-esteem is the most effective weapon against corruption. As human beings we must understand that we are all capable of creating the life we want. We do not have to take from others. The universe is an abundant system. Scarcity is an illusion.

We are what we eat/eating is a political act. If we eat junk, we become junk, we think junky ideas and we end up creating a world of junk. Let's eat quality food and become quality people.

Quality of life over superficial growth. Our economic growth must be based on the growth of the human spirit and the improvement of our lives. We need to change the measurement of our economic life and the meaning of the word "profits." Profits must include quality of life, personal growth and enjoyment.

Learning is a human right. Teaching people is a global duty; not having education available is a violation of human rights.

Role models are extraordinary people. We must admire real people that have created extraordinary lives, not people created by the media. Role models are essential for the development of our human potential.

Abundance and prosperity. The universe is abundant. We are abundant and limitless. We need to turn our minds and hearts toward our greatness, abundance and possibilities.

Consumption vs. quality of life. We cannot fill our emptiness by consuming. Consumption must have meaning and its consequences measured. We need nourishment, creativity, encouragement, playfulness and community - not more consumption.

Individual creativity, imagination and self-expression are sacred. Individual creativity must be respected, encouraged and protected. It is the only way out of our current broken paradigm.
