“There’s two types of justice that we deal with in America: There’s moral justice and there’s legal justice,” Shapiro says.

Robert Shapiro gave his first on-camera interview in decades to Megyn Kelly on Tuesday night, and with that spotlight, he revealed what O.J. Simpson whispered to him when acquitted of double homicide in 1995.

“You told me this would be the result from the beginning. You were right,” Simpson told Shapiro, the lawyer says.

Robert Shapiro is a remarkable man. Many people know him as the Founder of LegalZoom; others know him as OJ Simpson’s criminal defense lawyer; others for his more recent work as a corporate lawyer on the civil side representing the Rock Star energy drink company and Steve Wynn of Vegas fame, and still others for his remarkable charity work to raise drug and alcohol dependency awareness. Of course, his work on the OJ Simpson case made him internationally famous.

Be curious – ask questions. People like to talk about themselves and their achievements.  When I asked Robert about the LegalZoom transaction, he lit up and really became engaged.

“I came here and I didn’t speak English, I didn’t have a green card, I didn’t know I had to have an agent, I couldn’t drive, I was dyslexic,” Hayek said. “I hadn’t had to do anything on my own in Mexico.”

But just a year of perseverance, Hayek starred in her first film, Mi Vida Loca. She’s since had a successful career in Hollywood, most notably for her Academy Award nomination for her performance as the title role in Frida.

He was short, smart, and savvy, and spent his childhood observing his father, who owned a liquor store, attempting to avoid selling booze to kids with fake IDs, while the cops indiscriminately chose when to prosecute and when to look the other way. According to this confidant, this experience would motivate and structure Levin’s career, as he worked to expose the hypocrisy of those in power, whether they be the police, celebrities, or the various apparatuses that supported and sheltered them. He received a B.A. from UC Santa Barbara and a J.D. from University of Chicago, passing the California bar in 1975.

Despite his dyslexia, Reeves still reads and recites Shakespeare today to calm himself. He has performed iconic plays such as Romeo and Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing. Dyslexia might slow him down while working with Shakespeare, but Reeves never let that stop him from partaking in performances and even award-winning motion pictures.

“A feminist is a person who believes in the power of women as much as they believe in the power of anyone else. It’s equality, it’s fairness, and I think it’s a great thing to be a part of.”

SOUL

Phil McGraw 1950

The authentic self is the you that can be found at your absolute core. It is the part of you not defined by your job, function or role. It is the composite of all your skills, talents and wisdom. It is all of the things that are uniquely yours and need expression, rather than what you believe you are supposed to be and do.

http://www.drphil.com/articles/article/73

The term talent refers to an inborn and the special ability of a person to do something. A skill is an expertise, which is acquired by the person by learning. Talent is God gifted ability, whereas Skill is an ability in which you put your time and efforts to develop.

Wisdom is one of those qualities difficult to define—because it encompasses so much—but which people generally recognize when they encounter it. And it is encountered most obviously in the realm of decision-making. Psychologists tend to agree that wisdom involves an integration of knowledge, experience, and deep understanding that incorporates tolerance for the uncertainties of life as well as its ups and downs. There’s an awareness of how things play out over time, and it confers a sense of balance. It can be acquired only through experience, but by itself, experience does not automatically confer wisdom. 

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/basics/wisdom

*Write down your skills, your talents, and your wisdom. This is who you are. Your job is not what or who you are. Express who you are and stop worrying about who you should be.

”Goldman, Sachs put my kids’ trusts in the stock market when I specifically asked them not to,” he said. ”That broke the bond of trust. I decided I had to get my stuff out of there.” He has never been much of a fan of the stock market, he said, believing that real estate and bonds gave him more security.

“Top Chef” host Padma Lakshmi has penned an essay in which she says she was raped at 16 and remained silent about it.

Lakshmi wrote that she and the man “were intimate to a point, but he knew that I was a virgin and that I was unsure of when I would be ready to have sex.”

“Afterward, he said, ‘I thought it would hurt less if you were asleep,’ “Lakshmi wrote. “Then he drove me home.”
