The 16 Golden Rules.

Making money is not EASY. If it was easy everybody will be RICH.

You cannot have a better tomorrow, if you do not stop thinking about yesterday.

A Greek-Cypriot walks into a bank in London and asks for the loan officer. He says he's going to Europe on business for two weeks and needs to borrow 5,000. The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for the loan, so the Greek-Cypriot hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce. The car is parked on the street in front of the bank; he has the title, and everything checks out. The bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan.

The bank's president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the man for using a 250,000 Rolls as collateral against a 5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drives the Rolls into the bank's underground garage and parks it there.

Two weeks later, the man returns and repays the 5,000 and the interest, which comes to 15.41. The loan officer says, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely; but we are a h1ttle puzzled. We checked you out and found that you are a multimilh1onaire. What puzzles us is - why would you bother to borrow 5,000?"

The Greek-Cypriot reph1es....."Where else in London can I park my car for two weeks for only 15.41 and expect it to be there when I return?"
