Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability
I watched this amazing lady through church at the Global Leadership Summit and was bowled over how vulnerable she is. Her talk at the GLS inspired me to do one of my toastmasters speeches on forgiveness and to continue my work for acceptance of learning disabilities. Thank you Brene x

Susan Cain: The power of introverts
I am a Ambivert, I enjoy my own company, researching, tweaking websites. I am stimulated by quite spaces to get into deep thinking mode, but I am loud at times working towards being a transformative leader.

Should governments decide where the poor can live?
Thanks for engaging in the discussion Lars. Your right the job centre and/or recruitment don't create jobs but they are gate keepers to employers, they are able to open more opportunities and it is one of the solutions to solving the issue. If the government invested in businesses, those businesses will still need entry to candidates that are searching for jobs if nepotism in business management is to shaken up. In addition reform of business incubators or government support all need to be part of the solution.

Thanks for engaging in the discussion Gordon. Indeed ordinary people that need to do extraordinary things with ordinary peoples lives and that's the problem. The government doesn't really know what issues and challenges ordinary people have because most are so disengaged with society they tend to fire fight with issues instead of being proactive.

Thanks for engaging in the discussion James. It is a very tough issue, totally agree with multifaceted solutions that have to come into play; one of which would probably be the reform of the job centre and the collaboration of accountable recruitment company's to reduce frictional and structural unemployment.

Thanks for engaging in the discussion Isabelle. I hear your viewpoint but if we turn your comment on it's head perhaps if the rich paid more taxes and it was placed into more proactive solutions to support people in their big dream there would be less poor people. I don't mind paying taxes when they are placed into the rights streams not floundered away like Casino chips into ill fought out projects.

Thanks for engaging in the discussion Random Chance. I agree to some extent with your comment that the government determine who shall be poor; it's really up-to the "poor" person to expect more from themselves to continue to fight against the grain and crawl out of there situation with every last breath.

Should governments decide where the poor can live?
Hi Fritzie, to clarify the government have bought properties in the north of England and are relocating people there d from Camden due to the cost of rent prices being more affordable for the government. Unfortunately the government's neck does not really know what the head is doing most of the time so where one department is concerned with employment another is concerned with housing. Overall the point should be to get them into sustainable employment however the system needs reform as for some relying on government benefits can sometimes mean they are better off than working in a full time job.

Is the idea of addressing our body language a back door approach to solving the real underlining social issues of the individual?
As Body language plays a major role in our social issues at least 60% it is an approach that needs to be worked on constantly. However the 30% tonality and 10% verbal communication cannot be ignored, constant self development is a must if we want to go from where we are to where we want to be in our own personal journey. Moreover our outside perception has to be worked on from what we put inside us, in order to be extraordinary people we have to work on all areas of our lives. Put great things in and get great things out.

Can Money Buy Happiness?
No money doesn't buy happiness, money can't buy you love. You can get temporary fixes of joy from buying what you want but no amount of money can eradicate poor health let alone bring back the dead. Happiness is a choice you make everyday, it's an emotion that you have control over...as Maya Angelou once said (not verbatim) my circumstances may change me but I refuse to let it reduce me!
