An article on real estate investor‘s Jim Toner’s blog is about the secret to creating true wealth. He starts out by talking about the 1988 John Carpenter movie “They Live”. In this movie, the wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper plays the part of Nada, a person who just wanders around aimlessly with no direction in his life. He comes across a pair of sunglasses that when worn show the world as how it really is.
According to thriftbooks.com, Nada is on the streets of Los Angeles and it slowly begins to dawn on him that both government and media are sending out subliminal messages. These messages keep people passive and easily controlled. As it turns out the world is being run by some aliens with skeletal faces. Nada then kicks and punches his way to victory.
Jim Toner says that unlike Nada he doesn’t need sunglasses to see that people have become willfully controlled by the government and large corporations. Most people nowadays walk around with their eyes staring down at their phones. When they’re in coffee shops they are once again staring at their phones are at a computer screen. He says that the vast majority of news stories are actually planted in order to advance an agenda and getting people to do what the powers that be want them to do. See Toner’s official website.
In order to create wealth, Jim Toner says that people need to take the blinders off and think accurately. Most people will never reach their potential because they never work for themselves, just others. He says that most people follow what has been told to them which is that they’ve got to college, get a job at some company, and work their way up from there.
Jim Toner says you can ignore all of that. The best way to attain wealth is to figure out what you really want out of life, not what someone else is telling you to do. He made his money his own way, in the real estate industry. He says people should stay off social media, quit paying attention to the mainstream media, establish their own path in life.

Victoria Doramus has struggled with an addiction to alcohol and drugs for pretty much her whole life. She went to rehab for the first time in 2011 when she was 26 years old.

On Thanksgiving Day in NYC she was all alone and at rock bottom. She got arrested and this was the point that she realized that she needed to get real help or she was going to die.
She flew to Austin, Texas in 2017 and checked into a treatment center that was long term. Unlike the other treatment centers she had been to, this one worked on a 12-step program and they gave tough love while expecting the patients to have accountability. It had prayer and meditation, as well as an hour and a half of chores. After chores, the rest of the day was back to back group meetings. Each step had an entire month and they worked with outside sponsors. She was finally able to get into a halfway house and they required her to work 30-40 hours a week.
Victoria, a creative marketer and a recovery expert, was able to finally sustain herself and live a sober life. She was also able to get a ticket to see her mom and show her the new person she was.
