Money vs Ministry

How true it is when it was said no one can serve two masters. You get torn in between....

What shall I do after I graduate next year? I dont know...
If I plan my working life and investments correctly...I'll be a millionaire by mid 30's... or at 40 at max.

So whats holding me back? The urge for ministry.... time and time again i find myself clicking into bible college websites scrolling down masters and doctorate degrees...Why? I dont know. I dont want to. Or do I? If somehow I do this, I'll probably miss the millionaire dream and probably have to depend on God's grace day to day....

Can I just do both? why cant I be rich, retire..then study? why the urge to do everything at once in my youth? WIll I miss out on a calling, opportunity?

Direct my paths oh Lord, as I have the knowledge to achieve any of these dream, but I lack the wisdom to guide my own path in the right direction. I need divine wisdom, someone who can see things outside the continuum of time. Grant me purpose, grant me favour as I will bless your name in whatever ways you direct me in the future. Don't let me lose sight, let me not take my eyes off you.

World Cup 2010- jubilani ball

Talk of the year... the controversial Jabulani Ball..


8 bonded 3d moulded Polyurethane panels make for a near-waterproof 'roundest ever' ball.

Yes, it has been controversial at the way the ball flies in the air...why?
Well it follows the FIFA standards in terms of size, weight, water absorption,etc doubt.
But regular soccer balls are built with 32 hexagonal panels but this jabulani ball has only 8 panels! This gives a very smooth flight. On top of it , it is also a very heavy ball (still within FIFA standards range.

It supposedly gives more accuracy to players.
But looking at the way the Jabulani has been flying around, most of the professional players arent able to accomate the "roundest" ball on earth and accounts to the level of football deteriorating this season.

Have a look at how smooth this Jabulani ball is..

Here is what some has to say about the ball....

'It is a bit like a beach ball. You cannot trust it really. With some of the goals you set the ball going off in one direction and it moves in another. As soon as you put any air into a pass it's a lottery.'
England's Michael Carrick

'It's frustrating…it makes us look like drunken sailors.'
Denmark's Daniel Agger

Gianluigi Buffon

'The new ball is not decent, not just for goalkeepers but for everyone. Its trajectory is unpredictable.'
Italy's Gianluigi Buffon (right)

'Suddenly it changes trajectory. It's like it doesn't want to be kicked. It's incredible, like someone is guiding it. You go to kick it and it moves out of the way. I think it's supernatural, it's very bad.'
Brazil's Luis Fabiano

'It's a little sad that in a competition as big as the World Cup to have such a poor ball. It's not just goalkeepers complaining, but the outfield players too.'
Spain's Iker Casillas

'It's a catastrophe! I have played with many different balls, some of which wiggled or changed directions, but this one is the worst.'
Serbia's Vladimir Stojkovic

'You jump up to head a cross and suddenly the ball will move and you will miss it!' Italy's Giampaolo Pazzini

'It keeps you from sleeping because you are thinking about tomorrow and how you are going to manage to play with this ball.'
South Africa's Itumeleng Khune

'Adidas are not being fair on goalkeepers… This ball has a mind of its own.'
South Africa's Moeneeb Josephs

'It's terrible…like a ball from a supermarket.'
Brazil's Julio Cesar

As for the Socceroos...

The team that trashed Japan 3-1, drew with Coratia 2-2, had Brazil to struggle a 2-0 win and forced Italy into an injury time penalty winner in 2006 has now dissapointed fans with a 4-0 lost to Germany. Question remains...was Germany that good or was Australia just past its peak.
With the defenders averaging the age of 33, it was quite obvious they were slow at reacting to attack and stuggled with pace over the Germans.

Well, no doubt Pim Verbeek had kept his cards and will still have some tricks up his sleeve... With Harry Kewell and Bresciano kept like gold investments, waiting to be unleashed. I would have kept Cahill on the bench for the Germany game as well.. Since Germany was meant to be a loss anyway, why bother risking the good players? Well, Ghana and Serbia, here we come...

Earning extra

Time to get this blog up and running again!

Ok so the past few months has been exciting. As I have embarked on a journey to make money and hopefully become a millionaire by 40 yrs old. I have found alot of ways in which you can actually make money and it has been quite facinating.

Term deposits
Lock in your term deposits if the rate is 6% and above. If money is giving you extra money..why not?It is risk free and you will not lose anything.

This is probably the best way to make money work for you. Money grows more money as what Ive learned. Having said that, it is also important to pick the right shares. Banks are probably the safest. They pay you dividends as well. If you are looking for long term investing in shares and wondering when is the right time to buy? the answer is now! short term, price does fluctuate, but in long term, it always ends up on top. Long term for shares can be calssified as 3-5 years.

If you keep your shares for a minimum of 1 year, you only get taxed for half the profit which is really tax effective.You can also start with small amounts like $500. The return rate is also higher compare to other vehicles of investment.

This really depends on where you are. I wouldnt recommend this so much in other countries, but in Australia, it is an excellent prospect. But to get into this market, you need at least 20% of the house price. Returns for this varies according to location but generally the return rate is still one of the highest but 2nd to shares.

There are also stuff you can do over the internet to earn some side income. You can advertise for companies and get paid. You can get paid to blog a certain post. You can also complete surveys and get paid.

Further notes
If you are in Australia, and you are a fraid you might lose money from shares or property, dont be afraid. There are ways to claim the loss back through tax. Haha. I'll explain how to next time.

Happy earning extra money!

Infinity Downline

What I find funny is scamming has become so modern these days. Anyone heard of Infinity downline? haha.
Well for those who dont, it is an application on facebook where all you have to do is log in and you get $100. And this depends on how many people you get to join you. The more you get, the more money you receive. It is not a new concept, as this has been used for direct sales.

But it is fairly new idea that in this case, you dont get any product for joining to be a member!
So the Basic Idea is when you sign up you pay $100 registration fee. Each member you get to join this "club" will pay $100 membership fee as well in which you get more or less 50% commission in a way. Then the members that your members get commission on and so forth.

But essentially, all that is happening is, you are asking people for money, for nothing. lol. They dont get any product whatsoever. To break it down to a simpler model, All that is happening is that say for example, I am the company. I get you to pay me $100 to join my you have to find people to pay you $100 (2 people) to cover up the cost you just paid. And the other 2 people has to do the same. And it keeps going on and on. What a funny loan shark scheme.
