As petrol hike in Malaysia is a big issue now. Many emails have been around talking about how to change the lifestyle and how to cope with the petrol. Here is one of the good tips from the email I got today. Happy reading.
I don’t know what you guys are paying for petrol…. but here in Durban we are also paying higher, up to R7.35 per litre.
But my line of work is in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are some tricks to get more of your money’s worth for every litre. Here at the Marian Hill Pipeline where I work in Durban, we deliver about 4 million litres in a 24-hour period thru the pipeline. One day is diesel the next day is jet fuel, and petrol, LRP and Unleaded. We have 34-storage tanks here with a total capacity of 16,800,000 litres.
Only buy or fill up your car or bakkie in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the more dense the fuel, when it gets warmer petrol expands,so buying in the afternoon or in the evening….your litre is not exactly a litre. In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the petrol, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products plays an important role. A 1-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps..
When you’re filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast mode. If you look you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. In slow mode you should be pumping on low speed, thereby minimizing the vapours that are created while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapour return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapour. Those vapours are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you’re getting less worth for your money.
One of the most important tips is to fill up when your tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is, the more fuel you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine. Petroleum storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the petrol and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation. Unlike service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every litre is actually the exact amount.
Another reminder, if there is a fuel truck pumping into the storage tanks when you stop to buy, DO NOT fill up–most likely the petrol/diesel is being stirred up as the fuel is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.
Hope this will help you get the most value for your money.
Most people do not realize that without a Millionaire Mind they will never get rich. And the Law of Attraction as explained out there is filled with confusion, contradictions and even misinformation. Millionaire Mind refers to the beliefs, values and rules one must possess in order to achieve what the super rich achieve.
The attitudes and behaviors of the super rich are the consequence of the beliefs, values and rules they hold in the Subconscious computers.
The KEY to your success or failure is your Self-Image.
The ONLY reason for failure is an inadequate Self-Image.
The only reason for success is a winning Self-Image.
Your Self-Image is the SUM TOTAL of all the beliefs, values and rules you hold about yourself and the rest of the world.
You may consider that your Self-Image is divided in different MINI Self-Images, one for EACH different area of your life. Therefore, you have a MINI Self-Image for the health area, a MINI Self-image for the relationship area, a MINI Self-Image for the family area, a MINI Self-Image for the financial area, and so on.
Your MINI Self-Image in the financial area, your financial Self-Image, is also known as your Money Blueprint.
This MINI financial Self-Image, your Money Blueprint, is the SUM TOTAL of all the beliefs, values and rules you hold about yourself and MONEY. If your Self-Image is made up of limiting, useless beliefs and conflicting values and rules, the results is a “poverty consciousness” — NOT a “Millionaire Mind” but a “Poverty Mind”.
A “Millionaire Mind” is nothing more than a financial Self-Image , al Money Blueprint, being made up of beliefs, values and rules that will support you and help you acquire unlimited wealth. “it is real hard for me to make money” is not a belief held in the Millionaire Mind.
“It is real easy for me to make millions” is a belief held by the Millionaire Mind. “Money is NOT everything” is not a VALUE held by the Millionaire Mind. After all, it means that there are others things MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN money.
Similarly, “Money is not that important to me” is another VALUE which is NOT part of the values and beliefs of a Millionaire Mind, a winning financial Self-Image.
What does all these have to do with the Law of Attraction? EVERYTHING! The Law of Attraction is a new commercialized name for the ancient Law of Belief,
which simply states that “Whatever you deeply believe at the subconscious level will MATERIALIZE as your physical reality”, “It is done unto you as you believe”, “What you PREDOMINANTLY FOCUS ON you will attract into your life”. This Law deals with your beliefs (and values and rules).
Those famous vibrations you are supposed to RAISE, and nobody tells you HOW, are caused by the THOUGHTS you predominantly THINK ALL DAY LONG, which determines what you PREDOMINANTLY FOCUS ON all day long. What is not being explained to you is that what you PREDOMINANTLY THINK about and PREDOMINANTLY FOCUS ON is a direct and exclusive function of what you BELIEVE -your BELIEFS, VALUES/RULES. I am not going into all the specific details again.
I already explained that many times in several previous articles. Find them and study them. The THOUGHTS producing all those vibrations (frequencies) you are radiating are a PRODUCT of your BELIEFS (and values/rules). The ONLY WAY to change your vibrations is by CHANGING YOUR BELIEFS (and values/rules). Keep the OLD, limiting beliefs and conflicting values/rules, and your vibrations are kept LOWER and causing you to ATTRACT to yourself UNDESIRABLE results — by the Law of Belief/Attraction.
Eliminate the OLD, limiting beliefs and OLD conflicting values/rules, your vibrations will RAISE and you will start attracting different results, more in harmony to what you desire. The Law of Belief/Attraction takes your BELIEFS, VALUES and RULES and attract results in perfect harmony with their expansive, empowering nature or according to their useless, limiting, conflicting nature.
There is so MUCH NONSENSE being attached to the Law of Attraction, that I will give you a very simple way of understanding this universal Law. Think of God, the Universe, the Quantum Energy Field as being a GIANT MIRROR. If that makes you uncomfortable, think of God, the Universe,
The Quantum Energy as HOLDING this GIANT MIRROR. And this MIRROR is REFLECTING BACK TO YOU all day long the EXACT physical equivalent of your BELIEFS, VALUES and RULES. In simple words, this MIRROR is constantly REFLECTING BACK to you an EXACT MATCH to the beliefs, values and rules you hold in your Subconscious mind — even those beliefs, values and rules you are NOT even aware of!
The fact that you do NOT know your Subconscious computer holds certain beliefs, values and rules does NOT exonerate you from getting REFLECTED results that are in perfect harmony with the positive OR destructive nature of those HIDDEN beliefs, values and rules. The failure of MOST of those teaching you about the Law of Attraction is that they
FAIL to teach you that the FIRST step in achieving any new goal is to IDENTIFY and ELIMINATE as many dis-empowering, limiting opposing beliefs, values/rules as possible (known and HIDDEN) — even before you start taking steps top a new goal.
MOST people are radiating vibrations (frequencies) CAUSED by many HIDDEN beliefs, values and rules they do NOT even know that have deep in their Subconscious computers. No wonder the Law of Attraction is not working for ALL of them. They can visualize until they are blue in the face. They can use everything the gurus and experts tell them. And still, they will FAIL.
Why? Because deep in their Subconscious minds and HIDDEN from their conscious awareness the OLD limiting beliefs, values and rules are the CAUSE of their PREDOMINANT VIBRATIONS. Until they IDENTIFY and ELIMINATE those OLD, limiting beliefs, values/rules, these poor, unfortunately, misguided people will keep on sending out the SAME OLD vibrations and attracting teh SAME OLD negative, undesirable results. Therefore, to use the Law of Attraction/Belief effectively, from now on:
(1) START by thinking:
“To get that GIANT MIRROR to REFLECT BACK to me the LOUSY results I am currently getting, what must my HIDDEN beliefs, values and rules be?”. Find them and get rid of them. (2) Then, ask yourself
“To get that GIANT MIRROR to REFLECT BACK to me this goal X that I really desire, what must my NEW beliefs, values/rules be? Find them and program them into your Subconscious computer.
(3) Now, you are ready to program into your Subconscious computer your NEW goal, and do your visualization, affirmations, use trance (hypnotic states), NLP techniques and so on. The mistake most t people make, because that is what their gurus and teachers tell them to do, is to start with
(3) DIRECTLY, They totally BYPASS (1) and (2), especially (1), which is the HIDDEN source of all their miseries. SUMMARY. The process is straight forward: (1) Set a new goal as precisely as possible. (2) Identify as many KNOWN and HIDDEN beliefs, values abd rules as possible that are BLOCKING, OPPOSING your new goal.
(3) Eliminate all that was found in number (2) above. (4) Program (implant) in your Subconscious mind as many beliefs, values/rules that will HELP and SUPPORT achieving your new goal. They are usually the OPPOSITE of what you found in number (2) above. (5) Program (implant) your new goal into your Subconscious computer using tools such as self-hypnosis with visualization, affirmations, NLP techniques, etc. Most people FAIL because they perform number (1) and then, they immediately jump to number (5) — totally bypassing numbers (2), (3) and even (4). THAT has to be done for EVERY NEW GOAL you set.
No exceptions because the MIRROR will not forgive you if you BYPASS numbers (2), (3) and (4) — especially (2) and (3). If you follow this procedure and do NOT BYPASS any step, the Law of Attraction/Belief will work for, you ALL the time. Some people, accidentally, get their goal A because it HAPPENS they did not have any powerful HIDDEN beliefs, values/rules that were BLOCKING their goal A. But these SAME individuals try to achieve goal B, they FAIL — because unknown to them there are MANY powerful HIDDEN beliefs, values/rules BLOCKING goal B — but NOT goal A. STOP making this mistake. The GIANT MIRROR will NOT forgive your pathetic attempt to BYPASS steps number (2) and (3).

I got this email from one of my collegues. Sounds like the advice is good and you’ll never know what lies in the future.
Recession is coming……………………..make your own judgment, don’t panic !! Do what is wise.
The recession looks very eminent. It is really time to take pro active steps to avoid a painful time in the next two years which is how long the recession is expected to last.
1. Don’t take any loans, buy homes, properties with loans, or even cash. Keep as much cash as possible.
2. Pay off as much of personal loans, private loans, as debt collection will be hastened.
3. Sell any stocks you can even at lower prices.
4. Take money off from Trust Funds.
5. Don’t believe in huge sales forecast from customers, be extremely prudent, lowest inventories, reduce liabilities.
6. Don’t invest in new capital.
7. If you are selling homes/ properties/ cars , do it now, when you can get good prices, they are going to fall.
8. Don’t invest in new business proposals.
9. Cancel holiday plans using credit cards.
10. Don’t change jobs, as companies will retrench based on ‘last in first out’.
Stay cool, wait, and if you took all of the above actions and more, you probably will be better off then many.
This is not a rumor. Bear Stearns is the first of many banking and financial institutions that will start falling in the not too future. If Bear Stearns can fall, so can JP Morgan, Citibank, HSBC, and the whole world. US economy falls, the rest will crumble.
India and all those selfeconomies will be the most protected, but not gullible. Europe may be a little stronger, but not China, another giant! Malaysia will see significant impact.
This is my personal message to my friends, so if you want to, you can forward this to your friends, but I will not be held liable for any incorrect assumptions.
Can your resume grab someone’s attention for more than 10 seconds? No, you don’t know, and may not even know. But, why only 10 – 15 seconds? Can’t it be longer?
Well, that’s how long a hiring manager would pay attention to anyone’s resume and cover letter. Whenever there is a job vacancy, there will be hundreds of applicants. A 10-15 second is better than none! No hiring manager is not going to read the resumes word by word.
Your resumes are like advertisements. You are selling yourself to get an interview. Like advertisements, you need to highlight your strengths, competencies and quantifiable accomplishments in order to grab the interviewer’s attention. You need to answer the question every hiring manager has in his mind – ‘Why should I hire you?’
How you write a good copy of resume and use it over and over again is important. All the resumes need to have powerful messages. Customize the messages in your resumes each opportunity.
Use industry-specific words or phrases in your resumes. Convey to the readers your experience and accomplishments to demonstrate that you do have the expertise. Then, keep your message short and simple, but powerful.
If you think interviewers like long resumes with boring information, then you are wrong. Many resumes ended in the waste baskets everyday. Companies are always in a hurry to hire and there are many applicants to choose from. Every hiring manager has limited time to choose the best candidate, the one who can answer, “Why should I hire you?”
Readers can easily detect the image you are trying to portray in your resumes and cover letters. So, be professional. A powerful resume should contain these elements:
• Profile or summary : This is a very important part. You write it to provide an overview of your personality and experience. Your message here must be short, simple but powerful. You need to capture your reader’s immediate attention. It can be written like this:
– ‘Experienced, result driven, high profile corporate management coach known for
consistently delivering exceeding expectations’
– ‘Meticulous, results-oriented, dedicated and accomplished consultant with a proven
track record of achieving significant objectives’
• Accomplishment or achievements : Include in this section a bulleted section of your quantifiable accomplishments and results. This is also the part where you can hard-sell yourself. Grab the reader’s attention using positive quantifiable descriptions such as:
– reduced expenses by 25%
– increased annual revenues by 45%
• Expertise or skills : Be specific in this section. Do not simply state some general skills and ask the reader to guess. Use words/phrases that describe you area of expertise. Get clues from the job descriptions of the advertisements to help you. Make sure you are using the correct words/phrases for each opportunity you desire.
• Education : Include the pertinent education that is relevant to the opportunities. If you have no working experience, you can expand this section by listing some of the courses you have attended. However, if you have some working experience, limit this section to only what is important.
• Work experience: This is the list of different jobs you have had. You may need to provide objective details about your duties (main responsibilities) for each of the position listed. You can organize the information according to the date or category.
You do not have to start your resume with an objective. Your profile has described you
well. Putting an objective on your resume can really limit your opportunities. An objective specifies that you are only interest in that particular position only. The hiring manager may not pass your resume to another department which may give you the opportunity you need.
Another element which you do not have to include in your resume is references. It is enough to include the statement – ‘References available upon request’. If you are applying for certain senior positions, you may need to include references. However, include the list of references on another sheet of paper.
Follow these few rules when you write your resume:
• Brief, clear and drive to the point – Do not use long descriptive sentences which can cause confusion.
• Objective and quantifiable – Write factual statements with simple but powerful messages
• Action oriented – Use more action words to bring your experience to life and get you noticed.
• Easy to read – Do not include too much information. Interesting and relevant information will do.
• Short (One to two pages only) – This is important as all hiring managers have only 10 – 15 seconds to scan through every resume. If you can create interest in anyone in that short time, you do not need a long resume.
• Relevant to the position applied – The information provided must be relevant to the position applied only. Hiring managers know what type of candidates they want. So, do not try to show off by including all unnecessary information.
• Include only sensible information – Do not list these items : expected salary, weaknesses, or any of your IQ results!
• Internet ready – Create resumes that you can send to the prospect companies by emails. Use ‘text only’ format. You can also convert your resumes into PDF files so that the format stays when it is viewed by the readers.
• Attention grabbing – If your resume is an advertisement, it must be able to capture at least 10 -15 seconds of the reader’s attention. If your resume is not getting any response, it is time to review and rewrite it.
• Reviewed and edited by someone else – Ask someone to give you the feedback to your resume. If there are criticisms, good, re-edit it. Be careful with spellings and typo-errors. Do not allow the readers to laugh at you because of a silly mistake. Edit it a few times until you can produce a good and powerful resume.
You can use bullets and simple paragraphs when writing your resumes. Just do not overdo it. Good and well written resumes can open the door to many interviews. You can also refer from so many books on resumes in the market.
So, start writing your resume now!

Learning how to use mind power, and learning specifically how to use mind power to attract wealth and abundance has been a major focus for most of my life.
Along the way, I’ve learned that using mind power works most effectively when it is done with ease and grace.
You don’t have to struggle to get exactly what you want in life. In fact, whenever you struggle, you push away that which you most desire.
Using mind power to change your life is more like a magic trick than anything else. You simply trick your mind into believing that you have what you want, and then your life miraculously changes to reflect your new belief. And just like a magic trick, it seems impossible until you learn the trick, and then you realize it is actually very simple. Yes, I said very simple.
The four steps which follow are designed for the complete beginner.
You can start today, right now, to attract more prosperity in your life. Here are four ways to start immediately.
Four Simple Ways to Trick Your Mind Into Attracting Wealth
1. Show gratitude for any money which enters your life.
In order to attract money into your life, you must show gratitude for the money which is already in your life. Instead of bemoaning how little money you have, bask in gratitude at the many ways in which you are rich already. For example, if you earn over $2,182 per year you have more wealth than 85 per cent of the people on earth.
And if you earn more than $25,400 a year you are in the top 10 per cent of wealthy people on this planet. When you focus on what you have rather than what you want, you realize that you ARE already rich. Give thanks often for all the riches in your life.
How to use this principle today:
The next time money enters your life, from any source whatsoever, instead of barely noticing what has happened and mentally beginning to spend it, use a few moments of time to give thanks to the universe for bringing this money into your life. Every time you receive a paycheck, every time someone gives you money for any reason, every time you find money, or get a great deal, or save money in some way, stop and appreciate the fact that money is flowing into your life. Doing this every time money comes to you will attract more and more money into your life.
2. Act as if you are rich.
This is the fundamental truth of all mind power work, that you must act as if what you want is already yours. So act as if you already have the money you wish to have. Ask yourself, if I was already rich, what would I do, how would I act, how would I feel, and then do, act, and feel in those ways. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you quit your job and move to the South Pacific like you would if you suddenly won the lottery, but you start small and with each success you build your way to greater and greater wealth.
Eat a little bit better, dress a little bit nicer, go on slightly higher-end vacations, take a cab instead of the bus now and then, take that course you think you can?t afford, or do anything at all that you wish to do but believe you can?t because of a lack of money. And when you do these things, bask in joy at your inner state of wealth, and know that this state will be reflected in your outer world.
You?ll be amazed at how life provides for the things which bring you joy. How to use this principle today: The next time you are about to buy something, anything at all, purchase an item that is of slightly higher quality and price than you would usually buy. Even if something only costs a few dollars more than what is usual for you to spend, buy that item and thank the universe for providing for your new expanding lifestyle. Even though it is a tiny step, you are beginning to teach your mind that you are expanding your limitations, and as you practice this you will begin to purchase more of the things you want in your life and the money will come to you to pay for them.
3. Be open to money-making opportunities.
One thing that all self-made millionaires agree on is that there are opportunities everywhere, if we are just open to seeing them. You can prove this for yourself by looking at your own life. There are probably many times in your past which you think back to and wonder what might have happened if you had taken an opportunity at just the right time. Whether it?s obvious things like career opportunities you let slip by, investment opportunities you didn?t belive in, or less obvious opportunities like an idea you once had that is now making someone else rich, or an industry you could have joined before it became saturated.
If you are like most people, when you think of your past opportunities, you believe that you once had a chance but that opportunity is now gone. The difference between rich and poor people is that rich people realize that new opportunities are always all around us, all the time. You simply need to keep a look out for the opportunities, keep and open mind, and be prepared to take advantage when the opportunity arrives.
I?m sure you?ve heard the old adage that luck occurs when opportunity meets preparation. Well, it couldn?t be more true. If you expect to find money-making opportunities in your life, and you prepare to take advantage of them when they come, you will be blessed with more incredible luck than you have ever experienced. How to use this principle today: Get out a little notebook and write down all the money-making ideas you can think of. It doesn?t matter how stupid or outrageous the idea might seem, write it down anyway.
This does two things. First, you realize that there are plenty of money-making opportunities around you right now, as there always have been and always will be. Secondly, this exercise will stimulate your mind to see money-making opportunities where it might have ignored them in the past, and will help you practice to see opportunities in the future. If you keep adding ideas to your notebook consistently, one day you will see an incredibly opportunity on your list which is perfect for you. Then go for it!
4. Do something that makes you feel good.
This has got to be the easiest that makes you feel good. When energy rises, it attracts more good. feel good. money-making advice I could ever give. Do something you feel good, your energy rises, and when your energy rises, it attracts more of the things into your life which make you feel
Could life be any easier? Not really, but we are so caught up in the backwards thinking of everyone around us that we miss the obvious flow of energy. All you really need to attract more of the good things in your life, including more money, is to generate positive energy into the world. The states of happiness and joy literally rearrange the atoms of your world to bring you more happiness and joy. Of course, the reverse is true as well. So avoid fear, anger, depression, and spend your time feeling good about yourself and your life. If this is difficult for you, just practice. Begin with some small thing which brings you happiness. It could be as simple as watching a sunset, renting your favorite movie of all time, taking someone you love out for dessert, or anything at all.
The secret is to do these things whole-heartedly, with all your attention focussed on the happiness vibrating from your soul out into the world. This simple act will bring you rich rewards. How to use this principle today: Don?t just read this article and think “that sounds good” and then go back to your life.
Pick something to do which will bring you happiness and do it today. It doesn?t matter what it is or how small it seems. In fact, you don?t have to do anything at all. All that is important is feeling the positive emotions of happiness and joy emanating from your soul. One simple way to generate positive emotion is to feel gratitude for something in your life.
Just pick something in your life for which you are very grateful, and vibrate your gratitude towards it. It’s Never Too Late If You Start Now That should get you started. to expand the prosperity you let fear or doubt enter your except the power of your own Four extremely simple actions you can take to begin experience in your life. But don?t stop there. Never mind. There is nothing you need in order to succeed mind.
If you worry that you are not smart enough, not connected enough, not talented enough, not young enough or not old enough, you are simply creating limiting beliefs which will manifest in the outside world. All you really need to know is that the outside world is a reflection of the state of your inner mind.
Know that you can make every day from this day forward a little more joyful and a little more abundant and then watch your life begin to change. It’s an easy and gentle process, much like letting a plant grow. One day you will suddenly realize that all of your good thoughts have grown into the beautiful fruits of a happy and successful life.
