Why eating animals is not a personal choice.
🚨Warning: Although this is extremely heartbreaking, it is reality.
WHEN YOU EAT MEAT HE DOESN'T EAT!
What does eating meat have to do with world hunger
According to a US Department of Agriculture statistical bulletin, 80% of the agricultural land in the US is used to raise animals. Time Magazine reports that we feed 70% of the grains and cereals grown in the US to livestock. This is very ineffective because most of the feed gets wasted and only a small amount of the protein is converted to flesh. Animals require many times more calories - in forms of grain, soybean, oats, and corn - then they return in the form of meat.
The FAO reports that livestock now use 30% of the Earth's entire land surface - mostly permanent pasture, but also including 33% of the global arable land, which is used to produce feed for livestock. The University of Chicago notes that raising animals for food requires 10 times as many crops as we would need if we just ate the grains directly. If we were not using all that land to grow crops to fatten chickens, pigs, and cows, we could reforest millions of acres in the US alone. Or, we could use the grain that are not wasted on livestock to feed all the starving people in the world many times over.
It takes up to 13 lb of grain to produce 1 lb of meat. Read that line again. Now imagine taking 12 lb of food and throwing it into the garbage. Seems wasteful Because it is.
While 60% of the grain grown is fed to farmed animals to produce a small amount of meat... Millions of people who could have eaten that grain died of starvation from a lack of food.
This year, five million people will die because they didn't have enough to eat. If you want to stop this, there is one simple choice that you can make three times a day that will make a difference: STOP EATING ANIMALS!

The majority of successful businesspeople attribute their success to their ability to persevere after failures. In fact, it takes entrepreneurs an average of 3.8 failed ventures before they manage to start a successful business.
These entrepreneurs recognize that even if their business eventually fails, they’ll be in a better position than they were when they started. But if their fear of failure had stopped them at the beginning, they wouldn’t have gotten anywhere.
In the real world, a single failure doesn’t always mean the end of the road. Take Sergio Zyman, a marketing executive for Coca-Cola in the 1980s. When Zyman launched the new Diet Coke range, it was hugely popular.
This success bolstered Zyman’s standing in the company and gave him more confidence in his daring ideas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #johncmaxwell #failingforward #book #read #rich #mentor #tailopez #wealth #millionaire #money #power #desire #work #selfhelp #bookstagram #investor #warrenbuffet #billgates #cash #hustle #jeffbezos #fresno #mindset #poor #goal #improvement #reading #selfmade #maxwell #fail

Having an unwavering faith in yourself is a way of making sure that you can – and will – achieve your goals.
You can only achieve success if it’s based on self-confidence and an unwavering faith in yourself: no wealth has ever been acquired, no faraway continents ever discovered, nothing ever invented without this faith as its basis.
One paradigmatic example of the power of faith was Mahatma Gandhi. Even without access to the typical instruments of power – like money or the military – he managed to defy British colonial power and lead his country to freedom. The only backing he had was his unbending belief that he could exercise an influence so great upon his fellow countrymen that they would stand up for their common goals.
Our own faith in ourselves has an enormous influence on our self-image and way of life. It can – in the truest sense of the word – help us move mountains. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ #napoleonhill #thinkandgrowrich #book #read #rich #mentor #tailopez #wealth #millionaire #money #power #desire #work #selfhelp #bookstagram #investor #warrenbuffet #billgates #cash #hustle #jeffbezos #fresno #mindset #poor #goal #improvement #reading #selfmade

Darshu is a 9 YO kid whom I met last week at Church Street, Bangalore. He was trying to sell me a few pens and I was very much consumed in a world of my own, wondering about the things that have gone wrong, near a tea stall with a ciggarate in hand. After he lost all hopes of convincing me to buy his pen, he decided to talk to me and started off the conversation with asking me why do I smoke Ok that was a pretty tough one and I replied, " I don't know". As when he was about to abandon me I asked him a question, " do you go to the school " He replied, "Yes!" Now here's the story:
Darshu's father was a driver of a BMTC bus, he also had a mother, loving and caring like all mothers are. They were all very happy with their not so lavish life. He use to go to the school and enjoy his evening with his friends and do everything that a kid usually does but one day while he was in the school, a gas stove explosion killed both his father and his mother. Devasted by the loss, Darshu was shocked and had lost all hopes of living but his uncle took the initiative of his education and took him to their house.
Unfortunately now his uncle is on his death bed suffering Tuberculosis and his aunt does the job of house-maid to support them. Love and affection is the hope that has kept Darshu alive and going. To support the family and his education Darshu joined the group of poor orphan kids from his school and started selling pens. Darshu aspires to be bus driver like his father was.
Though we might call his dreams too small, but the fact that it's a dream makes it achievable. This inspired me that a 9YO kid has come over so much and is now living and working to conquer his dreams, why can't we

Our Correspondent @devonbianca spent the morning yesterday walking around the Favelas of Rio de Janeiro. (Favela is the Portuguese word for slum)
The Brazilians in these communities are living in deep poverty. Although by their facial expressions, one would never suspect that they are anything but happy! #Brazil
