97% vs 3%
Society is divided up between two categories. There's the 97% and the 3%. The 97% are the average people. They work 9-5 jobs, focused too much on their education, don't think outside the box, and simply quit on themselves and their goals (if they had any significantly big ones). Yes, some people chose to be a part of that percentile and that's ok because it's their choice. They wanted it to be easy. But for those who complain about it have no right to. They may be thinking "I work 8 hours a day. I deserve better and should be living a better life." In reality they don't. They knew what they were getting themselves into and what the rest of their life would be like. They have made their choice a have given up on what could have been, for them, a life full of rewards and luxury. They decide to see the obvious instead of what's further ahead, and when they see the obvious, they hurt themselves more by looking at it through one perspective. These are the people who have simply said "I will do my part in society no matter the cost." Education plays a huge factor in your destiny. Some dream jobs do require an advanced education. When this is present, education is ok to take part in for it is needed to achieve a dream. For jobs that don't require education, you simply are spending $100,000 to people who will never know your name. The 3% of people in society are the people who put themselves away from society. They're the entrepreneurs in this world, the people loaded with confidence, they ignore what people say, etc. These people realized they have so much potential in their life and they take the opportunity even when it's not present. To be where they are they took the risks and sacrifices and understood what outcomes could come. Every penny they've ever made was put into what they believed in even if it was a dream or goal so big it scared them. Fear is not present in these people. They realized the only thing that could really stop them was fear therefore they learned to overcome it. No matter the criticism they received, negative comments they've been told, or even simply being told "you can't do it." 24 hours was not enough for them to get what they needed done so they would put in a full 24 hours of work. Now, depending on who they are and their stories, they could have had an easy start or challenging one. Some entrepreneurs were lucky enough to have a family member who already started the business or gave a startup of $1,000,000. But some start with nothing but a dollar and a vision. One feels much more rewarding than the other and causes them to have a bigger appreciation for what they have and have done. The 3% are always hungry no matter what they have. They will not stop until they have what they want. There are many quotes for these people but the quote posted best describes them. So now that you know a little about the two sides of society, which one will you choose? Are you happy with where you stand? Or do you want better? It's never too late to change or start. All it takes is confidence, hard work, and a drive strong enough that you constantly think "I can't quit now." Keep pushing towards what you want and stop at nothing. Have a good day guys, Kyler
Chocolate Cupcakes with...CHURROS!
Ingredients for 12 cupcakes or 48 mini cupcakes For the cake 115 g unsalted butter at room temperature 220 g of white sugar 3 eggs M 180 g flour 40 g unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon yeast ½ Royal 120 ml semi-skimmed milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract For Mini Churros 1 cup water 1 cup flour Oil Sugar Small pastry bag with star nozzle. For the cream 115 g unsalted butter 425 g powdered sugar (icing sugar better) 85 g unsweetened cocoa powder 105 ml semi-skimmed milk Preheat oven to 180 degrees (160 degrees if fan). Prepare cupcake pan with 12 capsules of paper. Sift the flour with the baking powder and cocoa into a bowl and reserve. Beat butter with sugar until blended and mixture is clear. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until just incorporated. Add half the flour and beat on low speed until incorporated. Then add milk, mixed with vanilla extract and beat back. Add the other half of the flour and beat at low speed until the mixture is homogeneous. Split the mixture in capsules, not fill more than 2/3. Bake 22-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool cupcakes in pan 5 minutes and then move on to a wire rack until completely cool. While they cool, make our mini fritters: In a saucepan, heat the water with a drop of oil and a pinch of salt. When boiling, add the flour all at once and stir quickly. This creates a kind of "glue". Removed the fire bucket and take the sticky dough with wooden spoon and get into the pastry bag. Then we heat the oil in another pan. When very hot, we begin to put our fritters (watch out for burning!). Need at least a mini churro by cupcake. ( With what we do more mass on churros and we eat to live ... they are two days! ) Begin to brown As the mini churros, we take them out and leave them on paper towels to lose the excess oil. Finally, we went through sugar. To make the buttercream we sift the icing sugar with cocoa and place in a bowl with butter and milk. Covering the bowl, beat on low speed one minute. Then we went up the speed and beat at least another 5 minutes at high speed. The buttercream will become creamy, rich chocolate.
