…The following two excerpts are copied without alteration from LinkedIn “daily run down”.
"Pinterest users searching for terms related to vaccines will be directed to results from public health bodies. The social media platform says that to “tackle health misinformation,” searches for terms like “measles” and “vaccine safety” will now lead users to the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and the Vaccine Safety Net. The WHO announced recently that four nations have lost their measles eradication status: Albania, the Czech Republic, Greece and the U.K. are no longer considered measles-free."
"Think twice about putting that round of cocktails on Instagram— your bank could be watching. That's according to researchers at the University of Melbourne, who say we can increasingly expect our social media usage — and what it says about our spending habits — to be factored into decisions made by financial institutions. The researchers argue this monitoring is just "one example of the increased privacy invasion taking place in the finance industry."
If you ever wondered who has the most control in the outcome of elections, buying decisions, education, misinformation, public manipulation trust me when I say, “the Russians” have hardly scratched the surface.
In the military the phrase is “NEED TO KNOW BASIS” and apparently the American people don’t need to know the truth. Leaders. Do your homework. Do not simply trust the “information” which was easiest to find. It might have been “fed to you” for the goal of misleading you or directing a certain outcome.
Soon the same “directed search results” will include your reputation (associations and hangouts?), employment history (social media check ins?), medical history (23 and me?), driving history (insurance discounts?)
The data is being gathered. It can and will he used against you in a court of law (or public trial by social media (doxing?). You have the right to remain silent and you should consider it.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
