4 Ways To Become A Millionaire


This is an info I got today from an Internet Marketing Seminar site, eonenet.com which is a Malaysian Internet Marketer or Trainer site.

In the new book “One Minute Millionaire” co-authored by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Allen, the authors share that no matter what your background, there are only 4 major ways of becoming a millionaire and you can learn to master one of these areas:-

  1. Investment: Investing in shares, bonds, CDs.
  2. Real Estate: Owning and investing in properties.
  3. Business: Marketing products, services, ideas.
  4. Internet: Selling using the power of internet.

You can probably achieve your million dollar goal by combining any of these methods along the way.

You’ll need to decide which one is your primary tool. Which one will suit you, depending on your passion, hobby, expertise, and funding?

To us, the one with the lowest barrier of entry but the highest form of leverage is the Internet. Any budding entrepreneur may start a home-based Internet business with little capital (under RM1,000 or USD350). The difference between the successful and the miserable is that the former knows how to apply a successful system whereas the latter wastes time and money in trial and error and runs out of funding before discovering the right way.

So if you are serious, which path do you choose?

The assassination of the former prime minister and main opposition leader, Benazir Bhutto


I am not into politics but last night was a shocking news that I heard in my car while driving home. I reached home at about 9pm local time and heard about this news headline “Benazir Bhutto, former Pakistani Premier was killed in an attack after a rally”. I tuned to CNN, BBC and later Aljazeera all shown the shocking news.

Getty Images photographer John Moore captured Benazir Bhutto waving, moments before he heard gunshots.

WORLD REACTION
Below is a selection of reaction to the death of Benazir Bhutto. Read more reaction here.

“Canada condemns in the strongest terms this attack on the restoration of Pakistan’s efforts to return to full democracy.”
– Canadian Foreign Affairs minister Maxime Bernier, in a written statement


“The United States strongly condemns this cowardly act by murderous extremists who are trying to undermine Pakistan’s democracy. Those who committed this crime must be brought to justice.”
– U.S. President George W. Bush


“I was deeply shocked and horrified to hear of the heinous assassination. In her death, the subcontinent has lost an outstanding leader who worked for democracy and reconciliation in her country.”
– Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh


“(Bhutto’s assassination) is not only bad for Pakistan, it is bad for the entire region.”
– former Indian Foreign Minister Natwar Singh


“Benazir Bhutto showed in her words and actions a deep commitment to her country. She knew the risks of her return to campaign but was convinced that her country needed her. This is a time for restraint but also unity.”
– British Foreign Secretary
David Miliband


“(Benazir Bhutto was) a woman who chose to fight her battle until the end with a single weapon — the one of dialogue and political debate.”
– Italian premier Romano Prodi


Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Thursday’s assassination of Benazir Bhutto was an act of “immense brutality” by the “enemies” of Pakistan and of peace.
Star wire services

This is what Bhutto told reporter Gail Sheehy (PARADE.com) about a possible terrorist attacks against her.

“I am what the terrorists most fear,” Benazir Bhutto told me in a two-hour, face-to-face interview in late November at her home outside Karachi, Pakistan.

She was also the figure President Pervez Musharraf most feared as a rival, as expressed to me by the beleaguered leader’s close confidant, Humayun Gauhar: “If the Americans can have a government led by Bhutto, they will get what Musharraf has refused them. She will allow NATO boots on the ground in our tribal areas and a chance to neuter our nuclear weapons,” said Gauhar. This is exactly why the American government was eager to see Bhutto gain or share power with the Musharraf’s highly unpopular regime.

So I have few questions: Does she deserve to be killed in this manner? Does she miscalculated the timing of her return to Pakistan? Does the third time attempt to be a Pakistan Premier a costly mistake? Does her own doings and her own mouth anger certain people in Pakistan?

New Year is coming. How are we doing this year and what is going to achieve next year? Each year, one make a new resolution. The question is, Do we meet the target, Do we achieve our goal, or Resolution just remain as a dream?

In brief what is a New Year Resolution? New Year’s Resolution is a commitment that a person makes to a project or a habit, or a lifestyle change that is generally interpreted as advantageous.

Kuala Lumpur will be Wireless City starting next year


Yesterday, I am reading one interesting article in local daily, NST, with this head lines ” KUALA LUMPUR: Good news for KLites: limited wireless broadband access will be a thing of the past this time next year.” Mark our calender. This definitely will create a buzz for all broadband communities in Malaysia especially in Kuala Lumpur.

It says “By September, they will be able to enjoy wireless broadband Internet access anytime, anywhere in the city without having to be near a hotspot; and for free, too, thanks to the KL Wireless Metropolitan Project, or “wireless@kl”.

 

From left: MCMC chairman Datuk Dr Shafie Halim, KL mayor Datuk Abdul
Hakim Borhan and Lai at the signing ceremony.

“The project is one of the pioneer projects under the ‘Klang Valley Broadband Push’ (KVB90) to transform Kuala Lumpur into a wireless city with WiMax-based broadband,” said Datuk Bandar Datuk Abdul Hakim Borhan at the memorandum of understanding signing ceremony yesterday.

Read from the source: The News Straits Time Online

Right now, Packet One Networks a subsidiary of Green Packet Bhd, is busy installing WiMAX base stations in the Klang Valley and is conducting tests on its coming wireless broadband service for this wireless@KL project.

Michael Lai, CEO of Green Packet International Sdn Bhd, said the tests are a prelude to a beta trial and subsequent commercial launch slated for January and June respectively.
WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) is a wireless digital communications system that is intended for wireless broadband access at up to 10Mbps (megabits per second) that promises to blanket a bigger area; up to 50km radius from a single base station.

Packet One is one of four WiMAX operators licensed by industry regulator, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). The others are Bizsurf, Asiaspace Dotcom and Redtone-CNX Broadband. Lai said the licensees are required by MCMC to roll out WiMAX services to 25% of the population in the areas given to them by the end of next year. They should be providing 100% coverage by 2010.

In addition, the licence holders must offer at least 1Mbps connection speed; provide affordable services; and invest between RM250mil and RM300mil during the first three years of the implementation.

As a consumer I most welcome all the providers of this broadband services and we will gain with their competitions.

EIDUL-ADHA: THE FEAST OF SACRIFICE IN ISLAM


Hello friends, for the past two days I was not feeling very well and today I am back to office and also to my desk. Okay, I would like to brief you on the second biggest Muslim festival after Eidul Fitri (after fasting in Ramadhan), which is known as Eidul Adha, The Feast of Sacrifice in Islam.

Eidul-Adha (a.k.a. the Feast of Sacrifice or Day of Sacrifice) is observed after the Hajj — the annual pilgrimage to Makkah (Mecca) in Saudi Arabia.

A duty of each Muslim, as described in the Five Pillars of Islam, is to go on Hajj at least once once during their lifetime, unless they are prevented by finances or ill health. “The Hajj consists of several ceremonies, meant to symbolize the essential concepts of the Islamic faith, and to commemorate the trials of prophet Ibraham and his family…The pilgrimage also enables Muslims from all around the world, of different colors, languages, races, and ethnicities, to come together in a spirit of universal brotherhood and sisterhood to worship the One God together.”

In Malaysia, it is more commonly known as Hari Raya Korban or Hari Raya Haji and a public holiday is observed.

Though in Malaysia the celebration of Eidul Adha is relatively solemn compared to Eidul Fitri, by no means it is less important, for it is a day when Muslims reaffirm their faith in God, giving thanks for the many blessings that He has bequeathed to them.

Celebrated about two months after Eidul Fitri, on the 10th day of Zulhijah, the 12th month of the Muslim calendar, Eidul Adha marks the end of the Hajj pilgrimage period (about two weeks); hence the name Hari Raya Haji (festival of the pilgrimage).

Eidul Adha is also the Feast of the Sacrifice, which symbolically marks the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, Prophet Ismail, in obedience to Allah.

Today, this festival is celebrated in conjunction with the pilgrimages performed by Muslims, called the Hajj and to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim’s spirit of Qurban or sacrifice.

As in other parts of the world, the Feast of Sacrifice is celebrated for four days in Malaysia. Interestingly, the Eidul Adha celebration is said to be more happening in the East Coast states of the Peninsular Malaysia like Kelantan and Terengganu where the population is pre-dominantly Malay-Muslims.

Like Eidul Fitri, Eidul Adha celebration in Malaysia is a joyful occasion marking the achievement of enhanced piety. Similarly, it is also a day of forgiveness, moral victory and peace, of congregation, fellowship, brotherhood and unity.

In Malaysia, the day is spent offering thanksgiving prayers and prayers for forgiveness at the mosques early in the morning. Then, it is customary for Muslims to visit their parents and relatives where a wide selection of traditional Malay food is served.

The one thing that separates Eidul Adha from Eidul Fitri celebration is the sacrificial ritual (Korban) performed only during this period.

After Eidul Adha prayers, Muslims conduct the Korban where livestock of goats, sheep, cows, bulls, buffaloes or camels are slaughtered and distributed.

A Muslim can offer either a goat or sheep, or one seventh of a cow, buffalo or camel as Korban, where seven people can agree to offer a cow, buffalo or camel at a time. Impaired animals cannot be slaughtered for Korban religious rite, including animals that are blind or crippled.

This ritual is often held at the mosque’s compound where festive mood prevails. Tourist may walk into any of these mosques compound to witness the activities.

The story behind Eidul Adha

Every year millions of Muslims make the journey to the Holy Land of Makkah in Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj where pilgrims will perform certain religious rituals and prayers. Performing the Haj is one of the central religious duties of Muslims that is enshrined in the Quran. According to the fifth tenet of Islam, Muslims who are financially and physically able are required to perform a pilgrimage to the holy city of Makkah at least once in their lifetime.

Upon completion of the haj, the men earn the title of Haji and the women, Hajjah.

Pilgrims wear special clothes: simple white garments, which strip away distinctions of class and culture, so that all stand equal before God.

The pilgrimage is also inspired by the earlier example of obedience to God set by the Prophet Ibrahim. After the completion of the Hajj, the pilgrims would perform the Korban or sacrifice.

This act is in remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his elder son, Prophet Ismail, when God commanded him to do so as a test of his commitment to his faith. God appeared in a dream to Prophet Ibrahim and told him to sacrifice his son Prophet Ismail.

Prophet Ibrahim and Prophet Ismail then set off to Mina to perform the act. On their way, the devil attempted to persuade Prophet Ibrahim to disobey God and not to sacrifice his beloved son. But Prophet Ibrahim stayed true to God, and drove the devil away. As Prophet Ibrahim prepared to kill his son, God stopped him and replaced his son with a lamb instead.
