Free Market Capitalism

Do you think it is moral to grade exams so that everyone gets the same grades? No? Then is it moral for the state to redistribute incomes? I don’t think so. You see, many people think of Free Market Capitalism as Immoral, but that is not so. In fact, it is both morally and financially superior to any other organization.
In a Free market, to get something from someone else, you have to do something for them. And that is what money represents, a certificate of performance, proving the good deeds you have done for your fellow man. Other people think that the Free Market is a one-sided game, where one person wins, and the other loses, but they’re wrong. In fact, most of the time, it’s a win-win scenario. You do something good for me, like fixing my bike, and I’ll do something good for you, such as giving you $10. The funny thing is, is that it’s the state who is making these one-sided deals, you get your food stamp, but you are taking it out of the paychecks of many others, who worked hard to get their money. Isn’t it more moral for someone to serve others for your food, rather than not serve others, and get it anyways?
Some others worry that giant co-operations might have too much control in our lives, but you see, in a free market, the businesses that satisfy its customers go up, and those who dissatisfy go down. Profit becomes a measure of how well the company has served others. But right now, the government can undo this. The government takes our taxes and then bails out giant corporations that are not half as efficient as they should be.
Many people also think Free Enterprise isn’t fair and that it is driven by greed. But the thing is, Entrepreneurs can only help themselves through helping others. Therefore, in a free market, it is the Voluntary effort of citizens, not the government, that drives the economy. That sounds pretty moral to me.

The Lifestyle That I want in 20 Years.

When I am 33, my goal is to become a good and faithful servant to God, and also to be able to support a God-loving family.
In 20 years, I will have a God-loving family that consists of a loving Wife, and 2-3 kids. I believe that the two most important things will be that the family has a strong foundation in Christ and that quality time should be spent with both my wife and children. I will also be able to support the family through a great job. At the age of 33, I will have become a good and faithful servant and will continue to serve God through both ministry and helping out in the church.
That is what my goal is, and I plan on achieving it through studying hard and doing my best to apply what I learn in my life.

The Ideal Apprenticeship Job and Why

In my opinion, the ideal apprenticeship would be one where you could learn a lot, while still having enough time for your normal studies. An apprenticeship is where you are taught a certain trade by a much more experienced person. Most of the time, there is next to no pay, but what you don’t get in money, you gain with experience.
Two other programs much like the apprenticeship are the Internship and Co-op Programs. Both are organized by multiple universities and require interviews to get accepted by other companies. Internship programs are only organized during summer breaks, but Co-op programs are split up during the school term. The main difference between these and the apprenticeship is that for the Internship and the Co-op programs you have to be in University.
I think that the ideal apprenticeship depends on what you are planning to do. If you decide that you want to start a business, take an apprenticeship at a successful small business. If you decide you want to feel out what a work environment is like, then take an Internship or Co-op program at a bigger company. Overall, I think that it just depends on what you want to do. I would like to work at a bigger business, so my goal is to get into Google.

What Benefits Would I get from Writing an Autobiography

An Autobiography is a diary of someone’s entire life. It reveals information on how they came to be the person who they are today, and what the era they lived in was like.
Writing my own Autobiography would allow me to preserve memories that I otherwise might have forgotten over time. Almost all people tend to forget things pretty quickly, and I am no exception to that, but having an Autobiography would allow me to relive those moments. Having my own Autobiography would also allow future generations to understand the world that I live in, and would preserve the story of my life.
Writing an Autobiography is also really helpful for writing it can greatly improve your note taking and writing skills. Note taking is a very important skill to have because to pass a test in University, you have to have notes that you can review. Without the ability to take good notes, you won’t be able to understand the lessons properly and will most likely fail the test. Writing an Autobiography can also improve your writing skills by allowing you to experiment with different types of writing styles.
I think that writing an Autobiography is a great idea, allowing you to relive past memories and events. Your Autobiography can help future generations understand the era in which you live in, and also spread your story.

What I will Apply to My Life from, “How to Win Friends and Influence People”

Recently I just finished reading, “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” by Dale Carnegie. I learned many useful social skills through this book, and am trying to implement them in my life. Some short-term goals I have are to remember other’s names and to always smile. Other goals which might take longer to learn would be to start asking meaningful questions to others during conversations, and also to show respect to other’s opinions.

Remembering some one’s name and smiling can really help your interactions with others. Smiling lets you spread happiness to others, something everyone wants to feel. Remembering other’s names is good because it has been proven that someone’s name is to them the most important sound in any language. Therefore, using the other person’s name in conversations tends to make them more interested in what you are saying.

I would also love to learn to start asking meaningful questions to others during conversations. Not just a monotonous, “How are you?” or “How was your day?” But to start asking questions that can really let you know them better, questions like, “Have you done anything interesting this past week?” or, “What would you like to make time for?” Another thing I would like to do is to let others express their opinions about different things, and also to show respect to their opinions. I find that doing so is hard for me because I always manage to find something wrong with it. That is why I should slow down and let others properly explain everything.

I think that implementing these things in my life will improve my social skills and help me not hate the people I dislike as much. Smiling and remembering other’s names can help you have more pleasant interactions with others.

Trust in a Long-term Business Relationship

I think that trust is very important in a long-term business relationship. Without trust, most business relationships would not work, for having no trust would completely undermine the entire business.
Trust allows peace of mind, letting you know that you can count on the other person, that they won’t scam you. Trust lets you know that your partner will work for the business’s wellbeing. Trust makes you feel more secure, that your partner isn’t going anywhere. Trust is important for all businesses, whether small or big. It can affect the business itself, as well as its environment.
In conclusion, I think that trust is a big part of a long-term business relationship. Trust is a business’s foundation.

What Would it Take to Convince Me to Use Spreeder?

I would be convinced to use Spreeder every day if I knew how important it is to be able to read quickly. Because I now know how important speed reading is, I use Spreeder every day. Speed reading abilities are very important because they allow you to learn so much more from books and articles in a shorter time period.

Spreeder is a free online app for speed reading. By learning how to speed read, the time to read long, boring assignments can be cut in half. Instead of reading at 400 words per minute, you could learn to read at 800, or even 1000. That way, you will have much more time to do other things.

Speed reading is very important, and I would recommend it to anyone. Spreeder is a great program, and it’s free! Just copy and paste whatever you want on spreeder and adjust the speed of which you want to read it at.

How to Win Friends and Influence People, by Dale Carnegie

This is my essay on how to Win Friends and Influence People, a book by Dale Carnegie. All you need to do to get people to do what you want them to do is to make them want to do it, and do make them want to do it, you have to let them find out wants in it for them. Let’s just say that you decide to go fishing, and it happens that you really like chocolate, but the fish, for some odd reason only like worms. You don’t bait your rod with chocolate, but with worms. You don’t think about what you want, but what the fish wants. You bait the hook to suit the fish. You put yourself in another’s shoes. To get people to listen to you, you have to find out what they want, to construct it according to their needs. Others just don’t care what you want, they only care about themselves.

Therefore, to make friends, you have to really care about others. Instead of asking your friend, “Hey, how was your day so far?” But just not caring, try to actually care about what they have to say. Become genuinely interested in their lives. They will love to talk about themselves. Everyone has an interesting life. But you might have never known if you have never asked. Who knows what you could find out. Some things like remembering someone’s name can really be helpful. It has been proven that someone’s name is to them the sweetest and most important sound in any language. Focus on using their name more, not just remembering it. You have to talk in terms of their interests and make them feel as if they are important.

The second point I will talk about is on how to win people to your way of thinking. First of all, you have to show respect to others opinions, not just shouting out, “No!” This can be really helpful if you are working with a group on a project. You have to begin in a friendly way and appeal to their way of thinking. Another good thing to do is to get the other person to do the talking, letting them feel as if it is their idea. Try to see things from their view. Be sympathetic to their ideas, and appeal to their nobler motives. At the end, tell them your ideas, and throw down a challenge.

Last of all, as a leader, you have to change people around you without getting them mad at you. Begin with praise and honest appreciation for what they have done, but call attention to their mistakes indirectly. Talk about your own mistakes before criticizing them. Ask them questions instead of giving them direct orders, and let the other person save face if they make a mistake. Make sure to praise every single improvement, as small as it may be. Give the other person a fine reputation to live up to, and use honest encouragement. Make the other person happy about doing the thing you suggest.

In conclusion, It is important to show respect to other people and appeal to their wants. “How to Win Friends and Influence People,” by Dale Carnegie is a great book, and I recommend it to everyone who would like to learn to have great social skills.

Was Washington’s program of gaining social acceptance for blacks an Elitist program? Goal: 100 words.

For those who don’t know, an Elitist program is a program which is run by someone who has much more authority than the others. I think, that Washington did not run this program as an Elitist one. Washington believed in, get this, equal rights. The fact that his program was not Elitist was demonstrated in his autobiography, in where he talked about the fact that he did not like it that he had to represent all blacks. He did not like that seat of power. In his speeches, he also talked about how he was just looking for blacks to be treated as equals with whites.

 

In conclusion, I think that Washington did not set the program for gaining social acceptance for blacks as an Elitist program. Washington believed in equal rights.

Booker T. Washington, Great parts in his Autobiography

Recently I’ve been reading the autobiography of Booker T. Washington. It is a great autobiography, and I highly encourage you to read it.
One of the parts of the autobiography which I really like is where Booker decides to go to school. He was very set on going to school, and nothing could stop him. Him going to school was a big thing because, in his community, no other black had gone to school before. All the elderly blacks who thought they would never see freedom again, much less see anyone of their kind go to school,  lavished him with all kinds small gifts, Booker even said that it was almost pitiful. After a long time and perseverance, he managed to get into school and graduate.
The other part that I really liked about the autobiography is when he started his school, Tuskegee. I like how he, even though having to live in poor conditions with a small salary, decided to persevere. His school, Tuskegee taught the former black slaves that never got a chance to be educated. He emphasized hard work and cleanliness and believed that all races should be united and that no enmity should be kept against the former slave owners.
Booker T. Washington was a great guy, and we should all follow in his footsteps, to be hardworking, God-fearing men.
