The Dollars Trilogy | Clint Eastwood

Although not Leone’s intention, the three films came to be considered a trilogy following the exploits of the same so-called “Man with No Name” (portrayed by Clint Eastwood, wearing the same clothes and acting with the same mannerisms).

The films were not originally intended to be a series, but the American distributor, United Artists, invented the concept for marketing purposes, establishing Clint Eastwood’s character in each film to actually be the same person. Thus, the films have been considered by many to be a series ever since. Additionally, a series of novels released in the years after the films establish the films as belonging to the same continuity.

Clint stated that he bought a poncho at Western Costume in Hollywood as he thought “Joe” or THE MAN WITH NO NAME from “A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS” would wear one (his own idea) but Sergio Leone found the “green one” in Spain and liked it better.

Fist Full of Dollars

Clint Eastwood in A Fistful of Dollars (1964), directed by Sergio Leone. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. A mysterious stranger “The Man With No Name” (Clint Eastwood) drifts into the Mexican village of San Miguel in the midst of a power struggle among the three Rojo brothers (Antonio Prieto, Benny Reeves, Sieghardt Rupp) and sheriff John Baxter (Wolfgang Lukschy). When a regiment of Mexican soldiers bearing gold intended to pay for new weapons is waylaid by the Rojo brothers, the stranger inserts himself into the middle of the long-simmering battle, selling false information to both sides for his own benefit.

For a Few Dollars More

In the Wild West, a murderous outlaw known as El Indio (Gian Maria Volonte) and his gang are terrorizing and robbing the citizens of the region. With a bounty on El Indio’s head, two bounty hunters, Monco (Clint Eastwood) and Col. Douglas Mortimer (Lee Van Cleef), come to collect the prize. Upon their first meeting, the two men view each other as rivals, but they eventually agree to become partners in their mutual pursuit of the vicious criminal.

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

In the Southwest during the Civil War, a mysterious stranger, Joe (Clint Eastwood), and a Mexican outlaw, Tuco (Eli Wallach), form an uneasy partnership — Joe turns in the bandit for the reward money, then rescues him just as he is being hanged. When Joe’s shot at the noose goes awry during one escapade, a furious Tuco tries to have him murdered. The men re-team abruptly, however, to beat out a sadistic criminal and the Union army and find $20,000 that a soldier has buried in the desert.

Nostradamus Prophecies | The Third Antichrist Prophecy

Five centuries ago, Nostradamus wrote of three Antichrists. Two, Napoleon and Hitler, have already bathed the world in blood—but it is the third who will bring the Apocalypse.

Nostradamus
Michel de Nostredame by his son Cesar

Michel de Nostredame (depending on the source, 14 or 21 December 1503 – 1 or 2 July 1566), usually Latinised as Nostradamus, was a French astrologer, physician and reputed seer, who is best known for his book Les Prophéties, is a collection of 942 poetic quatrains allegedly predicting future events. The book was first published in 1555. The rhymed quatrains (4-line poems) are grouped into sets of 100, called Centuries.

Nostradamus enthusiasts have credited him with predicting a copious number of events in world history, including the French Revolution, the atom bomb, the rise of Adolf Hitler and the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Detractors, however, see such predictions as examples of vaticinium ex eventu, retroactive clairvoyance and selective thinking, which find non-existent patterns in ambiguous statements. Because of this, it has been claimed that Nostradamus is

“100% accurate at predicting events after they happen”.

The first Antichrist

Napoleon Bonaparte

The First Antichrist of the book of Revelation leads the 7th world empire to oppress God’s people, and will lead an army of “locusts” that will create more destruction, capture more land, and kill more people than any army in history. The First Antichrist will spread the concepts of the liberal “Enlightenment” around the globe, and crown himself emperor of both the religious and secular realm. He’ll be granted power to hold the church and its leaders in captivity for 42 months and he will set ten kings to watch over his seven nation empire.

NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #8 – 1

PAX NEY LORON will be more fire than blood,

   PAX NEY LORON plus feu qu’a sang fera,

   Bathed in praise, a great escape is assured;

   Laude nager, fuir grand au surrez;

   Those worried will refuse him entry,

   Les agasses entree refusera,

   But doubtful that for long they will hold him confined.

Pampon, durance les tiendra enferrez.

The second Antichrist

Adolf Hitler

In Revelation Chapter 13, the Bible tells us that after the First Antichrist is destroyed, their comes a Second Antichrist (Second Beast) who leads the eighth empire attempting to conquer the world. This modern antichrist appears having two horns like a lamb, and therefore presents himself as a modern messiah. He tells his promised people that he will create a perfect human society for them lasting for 1000 years. He will attack and conquer many nations under the sign of the cross (Hellas Cross), and spreads his ideas using a man-made idol (invention) that has the power of speech (radio?).

NOSTRADAMUS QUATRAIN #10-66

   The Prime Minister of London (is supported) by America,

   Le chef de Londres par regne l”Americh,

   As the Isles of the Scots will suffer from frost;

   L’isle d’Escosse tempiera par gelee;

   An errant Fuhrer will become such an evil antichrist,

Roy Reb auront un si grand antechrist,

   That he will draw everyone into the conflict.

Que les mettra trestous dans la meslee.

The third Antichrist

After spending 5 years studying millionaires, I’ve found that there are 3 types of people who end up the wealthiest

Thomas C. Corley, Contributor Sep 8, 2018, 10:18 PM

• To become wealthy there are a few things you have to do with your money. 

• Thomas C. Corley studied and interviewed 233 wealthy individuals over the course of four years and found three common ways they build their fortunes.

• “Saver-investors” focused on having no debt, lived well below their means, and invested and saved for many years. 

• “Virtuosos” were the best of the best in their careers, and worked for companies that gave stock options or owned their own highly-profitable businesses. 

• “Dreamers” were the wealthiest group: They pursued a big dream and made it a reality, which led to some massive gain or income.

What I found is that there were three predominant paths rich people pursued in order to accumulate their wealth.

1. The ‘saver-investors’

Just less than 22% of the rich people in my Rich Habits Study fell into this category. The “saver-investors” all had zero debt, and the passive income generated by their invested savings was enough to meet or exceed their standard of living.

They all had five things in common:

1. They had a low standard of living and

2. They typically made a modest income and

3. Their modest income exceeded their low standard of living and

4. They saved 20% or more of their modest income for many years and

5. They consistently and prudently invested their savings for many years.

It took the Savers about 32 years to accumulate an average wealth of $3.4 million.

2. The ‘virtuosos’

Approximately 27% of the rich people in my study were “virtuosos.” These rich people were virtuosos in their career, industry, or profession. They were among the best at what they did.

These individuals either worked for large, publicly-held corporations, in which a significant portion of their compensation was stock-based compensation or they were entrepreneurs/small business owners with enterprises that were highly profitable.

It took the virtuosos about 20 years to accumulate an average wealth of $4 million.

3. The ‘dreamers’

The “dreamers” were by far the wealthiest group in my study. Approximately 51% of them were individuals who pursued some big dream and were able to turn that dream into a reality. Their dream eventually provided them with an enormous amount of income, profit, or gain, and they accumulated an average of $7.4 million in about twelve years.

The point to all of this is: There is more than one way to skin a cat. If you’re risk averse, it does not disqualify you from becoming rich. If you have no dream or you’re not interested in saving your way to wealth, becoming a virtuoso in what you do for a living can make you rich. If you are not a saver or a virtuoso, pursuing some dream that makes your heart sing can also make you wealthy.

If you want to be rich, the only important thing is to pick one path that works for you and stick with it for many years. The one common denominator all levels of wealth shared was time — it took many years to accumulate their wealth.

Richard Branson’s 3 Best Tips for Overcoming Self-Doubt

Richard Branson

Richard Branson

The Virgin founder and all-around adventurer’s best tricks for pushing past self-doubt.

As Richard Branson’s recent trip to space proves, the Virgin founder and all-around adventurer isn’t the kind of guy to let doubt stand in the way of an outlandish goal. But just because Branson personifies the swashbuckling, risk-taking entrepreneur, that doesn’t mean he never experiences self-doubt. 

Like his fellow space company founder Elon Musk, Branson confessed recently on LinkedIn that he, too, is human and is sometimes haunted by doubts. He just refuses to be stopped by them. 

So how does he overcome fear when it threatens to stand in the way of his outsize dreams? His first move, he writes, is to remind himself “of all the brilliant innovations and discoveries that would have come to nothing if their inventors had given in to their doubts.” His next is to try a handful of practice fear-busting techniques he graciously shares with readers. 

1. Talk it out.

Left in your head, doubts can metastasize or return in an endless loop of unproductive rumination. Rather than worry over the same fear over and over again, it’s better to let the air in with a little conversation and a fresh perspective.  

“It’s always a good idea to discuss any doubt you have with colleagues and friends, and to really listen to their feedback,” Branson advises. “If you feel more confident after these conversations, take a ‘screw it, let’s do it’ attitude and push your doubts to the side.” 

2. Examine your doubt.  

And what if your doubt lingers? Then maybe it’s time to listen to it. Sometimes doubt is there for a reason, Branson acknowledges, and the best way to deal with it is to actually solve whatever issue is causing you to worry. 

“Your doubts may signal a niggling problem that needs to be addressed. If you demand proof from your doubt, you’ll be able to either squash it or solve the problem. Either way, your dreams and ideas will be better for it,” Branson writes, recalling a time in the early days of Virgin Atlantic when a moment of doubt led to a business-saving course correction. 

3. Take a break. 

Like any good Brit, Branson’s final suggestion starts off with a suggestion to “get a cup of tea.” But don’t worry if you’re not a fan of hot steeped beverages. The point isn’t the cuppa, it’s the idea that sometimes the best solution for negative thoughts and tough obstacles is a little distance. 

“Whenever doubt starts to get the better of me, I find exercise really helps. I’ll get on my bike, play some tennis, or have some downtime with my family. This is often when my best ideas come to me as well!” Branson continues. 

He’s far from the only achiever to notice the magic powers of a change of scene, a little exercise, and some time out of doors. A host of thinkers from Charles Darwin to Steve Jobs to Albert Einstein have recommended a little hiking, sailing, or bike riding whenever you’re hung up on a problem or worry. 

Science shows nature reduces stress, exercise makes us smarter, and rhythmic activities that demand some but not all of our attention — like walking or shampooing your hair — can help shake out creative ideas. No wonder taking a break can actually be the fastest, best way to work your way around self-doubt.
