    Spam Mail >>> Kindly accept my greetings – Kojo Kwesi from Ghana 

    From: Kojo Kwesi <>
    Date: Jul 17, 2010 4:26 AM
    Subject: Kindly accept my greetings


    Kindly accept my greetings. My names are Kojo Kwesi and am from Ghana. I am 52 years of age and I work with a giant gold-producing company, Newmont Ghana Gold Limited. I understand that my contacting you will come to you as a surprise since we have not known each other before. I only have the privilege to contact you after I got your e-mail address during my search for a relaible partner in the internet. I believe you can handle this project. My purpose of writing you this mail is to introduce a project involving the sum of US$ 7.546, 740.00 (Seven Million Five Hundred and Forty Six Thousand Seven Hundred and Forty United States Dollar) to you, and to seek your partnership in securing the above-mentioned amount.

    In February this year, I have lobbied for an Indian gold company to buy gold deposits from a group of community miners at a very low price and less incurred tax. I had a confidential agreement with agents of the Indian company that I shall receive 10% value of the cost of gold deposits bought as my reward for fixing the business. After completing the business, my percentage benefit was deposited with a financial security company in London. The reason the money was deposited in the security company was because I didn’t want my company to suspect my act since it is against the company’s career practice and ethics policy. Besides, the Indian company is also a business partner with Newmont Ghana Gold Limited Company.

    I have contacted you to solicit your assistance to receive this money in your private account for possible investment in your country. My decision to transfer the fund out of the security company is because the expiry time of the deposit agreement I had with the company is near. Therefore, I want you to receive this fund as my partner and after, you shall be entitled to 30% of the fund.  I believe you will be of good character and honest. If you are interested, kindly get back to me for more details.

    I anticipate your acknowledgement and reply soon.

    During wind and rain by Thomas Hardy 

    They sing their dearest songs —
    He, she, all of them — yea,
    Treble and tenor and bass,
    And one to play;
    With the candles mooning each face….
    Ah, no; the years O!
    How the sick leaves reel down in throngs!

    They clear the creeping moss —
    Elders and juniors — aye,
    Making the pathways neat
    And the garden gay;
    And they build a shady seat….
    Ah, no; the years, the years;
    See, the white storm-birds wing across!

    They are blithely breakfasting all —
    Men and maidens — yea,
    Under the summer tree,
    With a glimpse of the bay,
    While pet fowl come to the knee….
    Ah, no; the years O!
    And the rotten rose is ript from the wall.

    They change to a high new house,
    He, she, all of them — aye,
    Clocks and carpets and chairs
    On the lawn all day,
    And brightest things that are theirs….
    Ah, no; the years, the years;
    Down their carved names the rain-drop ploughs

    Action steps to reach your goals ………. 

    To reach your goals you need to …

    * Know your outcome with crystal clear imagery.
    * Know your reasons for wanting that outcome. This gives your mission a purpose.
    * Take action to move towards your outcome.
    * Use goals as markers to monitor and measure your progress. You can check that you’re going in the right direction in a timely way using these.
    * Defeat self limiting beliefs to build self belief. This will get you there faster.
    * Act in spite of any fears you may have to build self confidence. This will keep you off the brakes.
    * Change your approach until you get to your final destination. This is essentially what persistence is all about… changing your approach until you hit your goal.
    * Stick with it until you hit your final destination. Don’t give up half way there.

    There we have it… strange how life gives you clues of success in activities that are taken for granted by most.

    I hope you think of this analogy in your pursuit of your goals and you use the lesson summary as ACTION STEPS.

    With your equipment they all began ………….. 

    Figure it out for yourself, my lad,
    You've all that the greatest of men have had,
    Two arms, two hands, two legs, two eyes
    And a brain to use if you would be wise.
    With this equipment they all began,
    So start for the top and say, "I can."

    Look them over, the wise and great
    They take their food from a common plate,
    And similar knives and forks they use,
    With similar laces they tie their shoes.
    The world considers them brave and smart,
    But you've all they had when they made their start.

    You can triumph and come to skill,
    You can be great if you only will.
    You're well equipped for what fight you choose,
    You have legs and arms and a brain to use,
    And the man who has risen great deeds to do
    Began his life with no more than you.

    You are the handicap you must face,
    You are the one who must choose your place,
    You must say where you want to go,
    How much you will study the truth to know.
    God has equipped you for life, but He
    Lets you decide what you want to be.

    Courage must come from the soul within,
    The man must furnish the will to win.
    So figure it out for yourself, my lad.
    You were born with all that the great have had,
    With your equipment they all began,
    Get hold of yourself and say: "I can."

    LIVE ONE DAY AT A TIME – and make it a masterpiece. 

    Avoid negative sources, people, places and habits

    Believe in yourself

    Consider things from every angle

    Don’t give up and don’t give in

    Everything you’re looking for lies behind the mask you wear

    Family and friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches

    Give more than you planned to

    Hang onto your dreams

    If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door

    Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it

    Keep trying no matter how hard it seems

    Love yourself

    Make it happen

    Never lie, steal or cheat

    Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values

    Practice makes perfect

    Quality not quantity in anything you do

    Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer

    Stop procrastinating

    Take control of your own destiny

    Understand yourself in order to better understand others

    Visualise it

    When you lose, don’t lose the lesson

    Xcellence in all your efforts

    You are unique, nothing can replace you

    Zero in on your target and go for it.
    – Dalai Lama

    Song Of Vibhuthi Yoga 

    Bhajo Radhe Krishna,
    Bhajo Radhe Shyama
    Soham Soham, Sivoham Soham.
    Om Om Om Om Om,

    I am fragrance in jessamine, beauty in flowers,
    I am coolness in the ice, flavour in coffee.
    (Bhajo Radhe Krishna…)

    I am greenness in the leaf, hue in the rainbow,
    I am taste buds in the tongue, essence in orange.
    (Om Om…..)

    I am mind of all minds, prana of all pranas,
    I am soul of souls, Self of all selves.
    (Bhajo Radhe Krishna…)

    I am Atman in all beings, apple of all eyes,
    I am sun of all suns, light of all lights.
    (Om Om…..)

    I am Pranava of all vedas, Brahman of Upanishads,
    I am silence in forests, thunder in all clouds.

    I am velocity in electrons, motion in science,
    I am effulgence in the sun, wave in the radio.

    I am support of this world, soul of this body,
    I am ear of all ears, eye of all eyes.

    I am time, space, dik and the controller,
    I am God of gods, guru and the director.

    I am melody in music, in rag and raginins,
    I am sound in ether, sakti in virya.
    (Bhajo Radhe Krishna…)

    I am power in electricity, intelligence in mind,
    I am brilliance in fire, penance in ascetics.
    (Om Om…..)

    I am `reason' in philosopher, `will' in jnanis,
    I am prem in bhaktas, samadhi in yogis.
    (Bhajo Radhe Krishna…)

    I am That I am, I am That I am,
    I am That I am, I am That I am.
    (Om Om…..)

    Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero (Seize the day, trusting tomorrow as little as possible) 

    Tu ne quaesieris, scire nefas, quem mihi, quem tibi
    finem di dederint, Leuconoe, nec Babylonios
    temptaris numeros. ut melius, quidquid erit, pati.
    seu pluris hiemes seu tribuit Iuppiter ultimam,
    quae nunc oppositis debilitat pumicibus mare
    Tyrrhenum: sapias, vina liques et spatio brevi
    spem longam reseces. dum loquimur, fugerit invida
    aetas: carpe diem quam minimum credula postero.

    – A Latin poem by Horace.

    ~ a short rebuke to a woman worrying about the future; it closes with the famous line carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero (seize the day, trusting tomorrow as little as possible)

    Don't ask (it's forbidden to know) what end
    the gods will grant to me or you, Leuconoe. Don't play with Babylonian
    fortune-telling either. It is better to endure whatever will be.
    Whether Jupiter has allotted to you many more winters or this final one
    which even now wears out the Tyrrhenian sea on the rocks placed opposite
    — be wise, strain the wine, and scale back your long hopes
    to a short period. While we speak, envious time will have {already} fled
    Seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the next.

    The ode says that the future is unknowable, and that instead one should scale back one's hopes to a brief future, and drink one's wine.
