Talk about stepping over dollars to pick up pennies… after more than doubling the fees required by Internet radio, many companies such as Pandora may be instantly put out of business.  Simply seems like another example of a shortsighted effort to squeeze revenue from the wrong sources.  Then again, should we really be surprised that SoundExchange, which distributes statutory royalties to copyright owners and performers and began as a branch of the RIAA, states that "Internet radio stations have done too little to make money from playing their songs."

I’ve been flooded with questions surrounding this.

Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.

I have a prediction to make…

Of the thousands and thousands of people who
will SEE this new blog post, only several
hundred will have the mental stamina and
emotional patience to read it from beginning
to end.

And, yet, even then, only a SELECT few will
seize the opportunity that awaits.

Yet, again, ONLY a few will have a clear
enough mind to read this post word-for-word.

I’ve found after studying super-achievers for
the past decade, they all have one MAJOR

They’ve formed the habit of doing things that
the “average” achiever doesn’t like to do!

Are you going to be one of the FEW who will do
what you need to do to find uninterrupted
and focused time to read my new post?

Come Join Me in the mix.
You, are connected with the infinite and are
already complete. and when you accept that, you
will find that you need nothing, because you
already have everything.
The laws of the Universe are not bendable,…. We
get what we think about the most.
Wanting and having are two different states of
feeling that create completely opposite results.
One leads to the misery of lack, or not having,
and the other leads to the joy of abundance. http://www.myspace.com/eldog5000
