Dragon Ball Super - How Goku Could Beat Jiren the Gray - Lessons From The Dragon Ball Super Manga - 3 Ways Goku Can Beat Jiren The Grey

As the Universal Survival Saga continues I have speculated on how the Arc will end.  To see some of my prior thoughts please check out my prior posts below.

How the Universal Survival Arc Will End - Post Episode 98

How the Universal Survival Arc Will End - Universe 9 Theory

For those of you who don't know, there is a corresponding manga that trails the Dragon Ball Super television series.  For the most part the arcs are the same. And, this is especially true in regards to the characters involved and the general story line.  For example:  In the Goku Black Arc, Zamasu is still the enemy and Universe 10 is involved.  But, there are key details that change the story line, such as Trunks trained under Supreme Kai Shin, and became a de facto Kaio-Shin.

So how does this all translate to the television series, and more specifically how does this link to the upcoming battle between Goku and Jiren the Gray.

In the manga, they speak about "completing" Super Saiyan Blue.  The concept is to seal the aura of Super Saiyan Blue completely in your body, thus maximizing its power and fighting at a 100%.  This is similar to when Whis taught Goku and Vegeta how to obtain God Ki, but the manga takes it a step further.

When the person is able to master this technique their power level sky rockets.  As you'll see in the corresponding images below.  Goku and Vegeta are getting their butt's kicked by merged Zamasu.  Vegeta acts a decoy so that Trunks can heal Goku.  Knowing that they only have one shot to win, Vegeta buys Trunks time to heal a damaged Goku.  Goku in turn decides to max out his efforts and power, and seals Blue's aura completely in his body.

In doing this Goku raises his power level tremendously and fights on par to greater than the power level of merged Zamasu.  Vegeta explains it below.

Strategy 1 - In the television series Goku will learn how to seal Blue's aura completely in his body and raise his power level significantly to equal that of merged Zamasu, which may be equivalent or closer to, that of Jiren the Gray.

The other thing that the manga show is that Goku learns Beerus' hakai technique.  The hakai technique essentially uses your God Ki to disintegrate anything.  It can be a living entity to a spiritual entity.  We have seen both Beerus and Sidra use this technique in Dragon Ball Super so we have to assume that this is an ability of the Gods of Destruction. 

It is immensely powerful and there seems to be no counter for it.

Strategy 2 - Goku uses the hakai technique on Jiren the Gray.  However, he may do it to severely injure him but not kill him, as killing is not allowed in the tournament.

The last possible way Goku can beat Jiren the Grey on his own is by increasing his power level so greatly that he will be stronger than that of the angels.

Below is a chart that XpertGamer created on power levels.

When Goku sealed the power of blue he became as powerful to that of merged Zamasu which is greater than Beerus (according to this chart). 

We are assuming that the mortal greater than his own universe's God of Destruction is Jiren, and we already know that this person is stronger than Beerus.  Therefore Goku has to find a way to be stronger than Beerus and this is the first documented way of doing so.

However, we do not know how much stronger Jiren is compared to Beerus, so Goku may still need an additional power-up.

Strategy 3 - Goku seals the power of Blue inside of him, and uses Kaio-Ken as an additional power boost.  Kaio-Ken will give him the strength to match Jiren the Grey.  But, the reason Goku will win and knock off Jiren is because he has superior fighting technique due to his intense combat history and training.

9 Core Values to Help Disciplined People to Steadily Build Wealth

This post is for people who are self-disciplined and looking to invest money outside of their employer sponsored retirement plans.  It is also for those who are aspiring to find ways to generate passive income.

As an educator in New York City, we are provided an employer sponsored 403-b called the Tax Deferred Annuity (or TDA for short).  For more information on it, I wrote about some of my observations about educators and retirement in an earlier article called A little bit goes a long way. 

For those who are not familiar with TDA, it offers a variety of investment options but the most promising is the guaranteed returned fix rate for UFT members at 7% annually, and 8.25% for all other members. The maximum contribution that an individual can make is $18,000 for the year, which is similar to a traditional IRA for everyone else.

If you find yourself in a unique situation where you still have money to invest then I would like to share some of my own ideas that I have put into practice.…

Influence People

Today we continue exploring Dale Carnegie's book How to Win Friends and Influence People.  The first part of this two series post was on How to make friends which you can check out by clicking the link below:

How to make friends

The other portion of this text is about influencing people.  If you'd like to read all the points that Dale Carnegie suggests, wikipedia does a nice job of laying it out in an easy to read format in the link below.

While Mr. Carnegie lists out twelve key points to winning people over to your way of thinking, I'd like hone in on a few of his points that in my opinion are the most important.  I think because these points feel so counterintuitive that it becomes difficult to understand how these points could be valid.

Nonetheless, I would like to share my thoughts with you on these few ideas and pair them with a brief anecdotal.  Then you can be the judge and determine its merits or…

7 Key Traits Required For Stock Selection.

In Chapter 14 of Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor, he focuses on the 7 items for defensive stock selection.

In the preface, this chapter is highlighted by Warren Buffett as one of the keynote chapters, and therefore the reader should pay special attention to the advice that Graham offers.

For those who are unfamiliar with Benjamin Graham he was a former fund manager, professor, and is considered the father of value investing.  Value investing is a strategy where stocks are purchased at less than their intrinsic value.  Intrinsic value in layman's terms is the amount the company is worth (Assets - Liabilities = Worth).

By the way, the equation above is not the actual method for finding intrinsic value, it is just a gross oversimplification of what it means.  I would also like to note that intrinsic value is different than the stock price.  The stock price is what the market is valuing the company at, but it may not reflect its intrinsic value.

For example:
