MUST READ: 6 Easy-to-Steal Rituals of Extremely Successful People

We ultimately become what we repeatedly do.
Over the years, I have studied the lives of numerous successful people.  We’ve read their books, watched their interviews, interviewed them ourselves, worked with them, and researched them extensively.  We’ve truly learned a lot from their stories.  But above all, we’ve learned that most of these people were not born into success.  They simply did, and continue to do, things that help them realize their full potential.  In other words, they follow a set of prolific rituals.
Today, we’re going to take a look at six rituals you can steal from them and immediately implement in your own life.

L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling was caught on tape making shocking racist comments to his bi-racial girlfriend after she posted a pic of herself with basketball legend Magic Johnson on her instagram page...and it was all caught on tape. You guys need to listen to the tape. It's shocking!

From TMZ
L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling told his girlfriend he does not want her bringing black people to his games ... including Magic Johnson ... and it's all on tape. TMZ Sports has obtained audio of Sterling making the racist declaration during a heated argument on April 9th with V. Stiviano ... after she posted a photo on Instagram posing with Magic. Sterling rails on Stiviano -- who ironically is black and Mexican -- for putting herself out in public with a black person (she has since taken the pic down).  But it doesn't end there.  You have to listen to the audio to fully grasp the magnitude of Sterling's racist worldview.

“Half of a Yellow Sun is one of the biggest films I have done so far, but definitely not the most challenging role I have played in movies. I have done a lot more challenging roles in Nollywood”
Genevieve Nnaji played the role of Miss. Adebayo in the movie.

Vybz Kartel caught on video committing murder; video leaks online

On April 3rd Jamaican dance-hall star Vybz Kartel was sentenced to life imprisonment for killing a former associate, Clive 'Lizard' Williams. He just filed an appeal against his sentence but it's unlikely he will make any headway with that because his murder video just leaked online.

When he was arrested back in 2011, the center piece of the murder case was a video tape made at the crime scene (Vybz' own home) implicating Vybz and his co-defendants. Well, someone just leaked that video footage...and it's chilling! They chopped the guy into pieces...that's why a body has never been found.  Continue...

Manchester United sack David Moyes

Manchester United have sacked manager David Moyes with immediate effect after owners the Glazer family finally lost patience with the Scot. The 50-year-old, who created a host of unwanted records during his brief stint at Old Trafford, becomes the first United manager to be dismissed since Ron Atkinson in 1986.

Moyes had endured a torrid campaign in charge of the reigning Premier League champions, with Sunday's abject 2-0 loss to former club Everton guaranteeing that the Red Devils will miss out on a place in the Champions League next season.
Defeat at Goodison Park was their 11th of the season - just one fewer than relegation battling West Brom - and left the club languishing in seventh place in the table.

Sunday's result marked the first time both the Toffees and Liverpool have completed a league double over United, while local rivals Manchester City managed that feat for the first time since the Premier League's inception.
Moyes had been handpicked by Sir Alex Ferguson to take over upon his retirement, urging those in attendance of his final match at Old Trafford to "stand by our new manager".

But with United having struggled so much under Moyes, the club's hierarchy were increasingly worried that he was no longer the right man to entrust this summer's £200 million warchest to.

Veteran midfielder Ryan Giggs could take over first-team duties for the remainder of the season, while there is even speculation that Sir Alex could return to the dugout he vacated just a year ago.
