With all the smart things we learn fred TED talks, does it ever make you wonder that...
Access to resources in order to act in what you care most about. To act for a bigger change you have to start small. Volunteer, speak up, protest if you feel you must on an issue dear to your heart. If you work in any industry try to make a difference in that industry that you see is detrimental to man kind such as - if you have influence of education change your teaching methods be the rebel who will teach because she/ he wants a better more aware future. If you run a business find ways to make it more environmentally friendly be aware of the resources you use. If you work in a hospital, mental health use trust, the knowledge of that people with mental illnesses have crossed such extreme barriers to speak up for themselves and use what you learn to empower the patients you work with. If you work in retail, do some research about the company you work for, do they really help the great scheme of things? Most importantly remember I feel the same way so thank you for posting this.

What do you think are the TOP 3 personal issues that stop an individual from pursuing their life purpose and developing their talents?
In the recreational world this is called barriers. Barriers are things that prevent you from achieving self -efficacy. Albert Bandura has written many books on this and I have to say as a basis for the recognition of recreation as an important part of our daily lives this theory has helped develop many tools to helping people cross those barriers no matter what they may be - from the mental, to the physical. It's quite a fascinating study, just as much as the therapeutic lifestyle changes that need to be made in order to be happy.

Does lacking physical beauty actually degrades ones confidence?
God has been kind to all for everyone is beautiful and holds some beauty whether it is shown on the outside alone, or on the inside. What takes away a person's confidence is their inability to see the beauty in others. If you can't appreciate what the world has given you - the people in your life, the morning sun, the birds, or even just the fact that you can breath then you cannot hope to see the beauty within yourself? and therefore no confidence in your actions, and beliefs. We also need to realize that if we are living in a society where we are constantly being put down for what people can only see, fail to understand or are afraid to understand or if we don't take the time to empathize with others we cannot hope to help those with self esteem feel empowered. To feel empowered you must find reasons to be empowered and see that same strength in others. - In other words if your hanging around people that make you feel crappy about yourself you can't expect to have confidence in anything you do.

Is it worth to invest in Bitcoin in the long term?
If I may be perfectly honest. To answer that question you should look into the history of bit coin. They way I think about it I believe the idea was created by Thomas Edison. Now as much as I appreciate Thomas Edison's ideas and inventions I am afraid to say that the invention of electricity to be mass produced by him was useful, but gave no credit to the discovery made of this electricity done by Tesla. There for my fear would be who would be running this data base bitcoin? And while you invest all your money into a database with numbers with nothing tangible to hold on to it would be my fear that all someone would have to do is hack into the system change your account balance to zero, those that possess the tangible cash will be safe from this while the bit coin investors are ruined. But I do not know enough to say this is true. This is just my fear from not understanding fully so I pardon my ignorance and will look into it further. I just thought perhaps these worries would be valid enough to consider before investing.

How the justice system and money can say much about government corruption
First off I would like to say thank you so very much for taking the time to write back about this topic. In response I would like to add and ask What are some things we can do to improve the importance of building a sense of community within our home? I posted my questions about this topic up on a face book group page called "Living off the Grid" I posted it in this community because I feel that though their goal to live off the grid is noble, It's almost a sense of ignoring the injustice that is happening next door that could at any moment be knocking on your door step in time. Unfortunately I was asked to remove my questions and was very disappointed to be turned away by a community that sees the corruption that's going on and strive to live away from that corruption. What do you think? and any suggestions on how to start trying to create a change in that where you live?
