If you’d like to become a winner, you’re not alone. Winners are the icing on the cake of society, the cherry in the cocktail of life and overall just the coolest people on earth.
But what is a “winner”, actually? Is Bill Gates a winner? How about Mother Theresa? Or Gandhi? What about Vincent van Gogh, who hardly sold any paintings during his life time? Can you be declared a winner in retrospect? And who declares the winners in the first place?
Ah… hold on. I think we may finally have found the right question: Who declares the winners?
Is it God? Does he point his finger to draw a line between winners and losers? Or maybe it’s a highly regarded group of success gurus who make the decision? Do they publish a list of winners online? And do you have to buy their training course to earn your winner badge?
What about your friends? Surely, what they think of you must be right? But what if you find new friends who think differently?
The one with the right to judge you
Darn… this is getting complicated. We might actually have to stop asking questions and start facing the truth. You might have to accept the harsh reality that there’s only one single person who has all the power to decide whether you’re a winner or not. Someone who can determine your fate, who has the right to judge you and who can change your life with his or her thoughts alone.
It’s you, of course. Which really doesn’t make things any easier. I mean, what are you supposed to think of yourself? Who tells you what you should think? Is it God? Or maybe a group of highly regarded — ok, let’s not go through all that again.
The bottom line is this: It’s all on you. You’re the only one who gets to decide and nobody else has the power to “help” you with your decision.
By now, we realise that our starting question doesn’t quite fit. “Are you a winner?” isn’t really a question anyone can answer. Why don’t we replace it with “Do you feel like a winner?”. If you’re the only who gets a say in this anyway, then your feelings and thoughts are all that matters, aren’t they?
So, do you feel like a winner? I certainly do. Sometimes. At other times, I feel like a total failure: weak, vulnerable and helpless.
My guess is that you’re like me. I think that you try to think well of yourself, and often succeed — but not always.
How to feel like a winner
To help you feel like a winner more often, I’d like to show you a little exercise that has helped me personally a lot. In order to do so, I’ll build on the exercise that Douglas Cartwright has suggested for changing the way we look at problems.
Here’s what to do:
Step 1:
In writing, make a list of your successes in life. Start with your childhood. How you learned
to swim, or to ride a bike. Then work your way up to today. Your first kiss, your high-school
graduation. The first job. Your first promotion. You get the picture.
Steps 2 – 1,000,000:
From now on, every time you experience a new success, read through the whole list again. Then
add the new success to the list.
This activity shifts your thinking significantly. Instead of registering your successes as isolated events, your mind will start to interlink them.
As a result, you don’t just think “Wow, I’ve achieved a success” whenever you have a success-experience. Instead, you think “Wow, I’m a successful person” — a winner.

Your Guide to Spanish Inheritance tax.

Your Guide to Spanish Inheritance tax.

A Guide to Spanish Inheritance tax,


You may be aware of this already, but it’s something many people who own property in Spain don’t know.

It’s about the taxes payable when an owner of property in Spain passes away.

If you have ever wondered about the details of inheritance tax, it’s simply this:

Your hard earned legacy may have to be sold off to pay crippling tax bills when you pass away?

Spanish Inheritance tax, death duties , legal fees - up to 40% .

So, right now, can you be absolutely sure that those you leave behind will have the money to cover those costs?

Of course we would all prefer our children and grandchildren to enjoy the property we’ve worked so hard to own, and not be forced to sell it to cover onerous tax demands.

Equally as worrying, did you know that in the UK system of IHT, a husband or wife is usually an exempt beneficiary?

But in the Spanish system...

Your husband or wife will not be exempt from Spanish Inheritance Tax.

It's a sobering thought, isn't it?

Retirement accommodation for the over 60's

Kei Homes Retirement Complexes

Kei Homes the ‘Retirement Home Specialists’ in Spain, have identified several properties on the Costas most suitable for retirement housing/sheltered accommodation including properties in and around the Torrevieja area, El Campello, Mazarron and Malaga area.

Kei Homes have always had the idea to create and manage several smaller retirement complexes up and down Spain and we are looking for investors to assist us or simply individuals who would benefit from such accommodation to come forward and join us in putting this adventurous but exciting vision into practice.

If you or someone you know are looking for this kind of accommodation, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

These properties will be available on a life-lease/freehold and rentable basis, and we are looking for enough people to make the idea viable. Prices will be very favorable.

Surely there are people out there who possibly need a little care and security who would like to stay on in Spain or arrive to Spain knowing there are suitable places to be had at affordable prices?!

This is a genuine chance and not a scam to provide small retirement complexes/sheltered accommodation with facilities and security befitting elderly people and /or those suffering from restricted mobility, and Kei-Homes is prepared to take the matter further if enough people show interest.

Please ring 680137429 or email kei@kei-homes.co.uk. www.kei-retirement.com for further information.
