Officials say they have recovered at least 175 bags of money so far as workers clear rubble from the liberation of Mosul Workers clearing rubble from Iraq’s central bank building in the shattered city of Mosul have pulled bags of waterlogged banknotes from safes in the floor.

The grand building is still riddled with bullet marks, gaping holes and the walls are charred and blackened – a reminder of the gruelling ground battle to liberate the city from ISIS in 2017. Workers clearing the site removed sacks of banknotes rolled up in black plastic bags from a hole in the floor, an AFP correspondent said.

“After starting to fix the building and removing rubble, we were able to access the safes,” said Hussein Al Zaidi, chief of the Mosul branch of the Iraqi central bank.

The banknotes were badly damaged after “the coffers were engulfed in groundwater due to an air strike” during the offensive to take Mosul from the militants.

“We discovered banknotes in bags, small bills,” he said. So far, they have retrieved 175 bags, he said, without specifying the total value.

When ISIS militants overran Mosul in the summer of 2014, they seized several hundred million dollars, as well as gold bars from the Mosul branch of Iraq’s central bank.

The country’s second city, Mosul was the militant’s Iraqi “capital” of their self-proclaimed “caliphate”.

Earlier this month, Iraq said it had captured ISIS’s suspected finance chief, Sami Jasim Al Jaburi, in an operation in Turkey.   Updated: October 21st 2021, 1:12 AM

He added that “dragging the country into chaos and destabilizing civil peace due to their lack of conviction in their electoral results is a shameful matter that complicates the political scene and the security situation, but rather gives a negative perception of them, and this should not be increased and repeated.”

UNEEK   Perception Oct 6, 2021 by Craig Shapiro

There are so many factors that can hold a person back in this life. Many are circumstantial – a lack of connections, money, education, a stable home environment. These conditions are outside of our control, especially when we’re growing up. But one of the biggest setbacks a person can face is one that can be practiced: your own perception of what you’re capable of.

In my years of experience, I’ve found that the defining characteristic that sets the massively successful apart is simply the belief that they are capable of achieving what they want.

That’s it.

UNEEK   If I could give a piece of advice to anyone starting out, in any field really, it would be to allow your imagination to expand to the belief that you are capable of achieving great things. And beyond capability, that you’re worthy.

It’s a hard line to toe, because there’s nothing more unattractive than overconfidence, especially when it’s unearned. But that’s not what I’m talking about here.

It’s not hubris – it’s chutzpah. It’s that scrappy mentality. That way of thinking that says, “well, if someone’s gonna do it, why shouldn’t it be me?” It’s that sense of purpose, of knowing that you can do more than what you’re already doing.

UNEEK   When I was getting started I used to scale back before I’d even begun. I’d make a plan, then look it over, afraid that I’d overdone it.

Now, I challenge myself to do the opposite. I make a plan and then I ask myself:

“Are you thinking big enough?”
