ID-100152994

Isn’t that cool when you save money and energy at the same time? Saving is always a priority of any buyers. When you save the limited sources of energy, you not only save money, but also you help society and help to save those limited sources of fossil fuels, which are not renewable in the near future. By saving energy sources, we would also take secure steps for upcoming generations to have enough energy resources for comfort in their lives. Fossil fuels create pollution, as well as environmental issues. The sources are very limited and by following some precautions we can help society and be the part of that proud community who helps nature.

I would like to share some tips which are easily applicable and save you money, so why not? Let’s follow this easy steps and promise this earth a better future.

How to Dress Professionally

HumanBBASS

Today I would like to focus on this less discerned but very crucial topic “How to dress professionally.” I am sure we all know the importance of it and try to prioritize the best professional clothes but trust me, it’s even more important than just normal thought and action.

People use more than 60% nonverbal communication compared to verbal communication. Nonverbal communication is the way to express your feelings and emotions in front of others. It might surprise you, but the truth is, “without speaking a word, your attire says lot about you.” Your professional apparel will be a strong factor during a presentation as a nonverbal communicator. If you are attending an interview, dressing professionally will demonstrate respect, seriousness and it will boost your confidence. In the workplace, the way you dress is vital, because that is the only way for others to perceive you without talking; so professional dress is an essential key of your success.

-If you are willing to buy a house, you would only move further if you saw the house attractive, neat and clean; it is the same way with professional clothing at a job interview. Professional dress will give an idea about you to prospective employer.

– A student spends years in school to achieve his academic goal and during his 15 minutes of interview and particularly, the first 15 seconds impression play a vital role so, dress professional.

– Student’s spent years in school to achieve his academic goal and during his 15 minutes of interview and particularly 15 seconds of first impression play a vital role so, dress professional.

So, here are the questions that we should be able to answer;

  • How to dress for job interview?
  • How to dress at work?
  • How to look professional?
  • Why it is important to wear professional attire?

There are three types of business dress.

How to Give a Speech

ID-10062259I remember during my graduation, I had to give my first presentation; it felt like my hands and legs were trembling, my voice and feelings were both inconsistent; I felt as if I had the responsibilities of whole world. I couldn’t figure out why that was happening. I am sure I’m not  the only one who has gone through that situation. The first presentation can make you nervous, concerned and most importantly less self-assured, but I think that’s normal. So we have to learn how to prepare for a speech. What steps should we take to avoid a shaky body? How can we provide the best speech? How we can hear claps from the surrounding? I think it’s no wonder. By following some simple steps we can constantly improve to become an outstanding speaker. I hope that after reading this article your first speech will be better than my first presentation.

 Whether you are giving five minutes of introduction or a complete presentation, groundwork research and fact checking are very important factors. If you are not knowledgeable about your subject then no article, book or advice can work for you. The most important factor is to know your topic very well. If you don’t know how the basic information on the presentation topic, then start asking yourself who, what, why, how, when, where and all related questions until you are very confident about the subject. Here are some recommendations that can surely help you to improve.

Take a deep breath and understand that you are presenting a topic you’ve already prepared for. Nobody knows better than you at this point.

Practice with a partner and improve your speech according to their opinions. This way you will become more confident and avoid mistakes. ■Don’t read, but instead practice with key points, and avoid memorizing entire speech.

■Write in your own words and using a method that will definitely help you to easily remember.

■When you are preparing, make sure you touch the same feeling you are going to have on the day of the speech. Be honest with yourself–if your hand is going to shake then feel it and keep practicing until you can do  the speech without shaking, etc.

■The most important key is to concentrate on your presentation and nothing else stop thinking about anything  during the performance. Most people  think about their performance, looks, what people in the audience are thinking, etc. If you have something going on in your mind or in your stomach, no one is going to know until you start to speak about your subject or act nervous; so please stop that thinking and you will be able to recover and carry on with your speech.

■If you are not using a microphone then have a loud and appropriate tone. If you using microphone, try to speak slowly and softly. (Do practice once before speech, if you can).

■Be sure to time. If your speech is supposed to last for 30 minutes, then be sure your talk isn’t any longer. I repeat, no one knows better than you.

■Walk around, make appropriate eye contact with everyone and make yourself comfortable on the stage. Actually walking around is a useful trick. It can give you more chances to move, think and breathe.

■Start out with something interesting by using quotes or effective poetry lines or something that you think will get people’s attention and then go back to your subject.

■Do add humor to the speech if your talk is longer; this is another way to keep your audience’s attention.

■Have some questions, points and video if possible, as these can add supporting information to your presentation.

■Make sure you have a clear and relevant message with nice stories.

■Speak in complete sentences and keep it simple.

■Never apologize for your mistakes unless you make a technical or subjective error. If you have made a mistake, then laugh at yourself, as this is a good approach to get your speech back on track.

■Make a simple handout using an outline format; the audience will see the points your speech covers, while keeping their attention on your presentation.

■Your Presentation should be simple, clear and professional. Try to avoid the use of too many pictures or graphics on a slide show.

If you need further help, I am always here to help via the “contact us” web page. We all are unique and I am sure you must have learned or read additional ideas about how to give a speech. If yes, then please share it in comments and help us all to improve our speaking and presentations, as this a very important talent in the professional world.

He had developed a trick in college for speaking with authority.  He believed that breaking his argument into numbers forced people to pay attention.  How you said something could be more important than what you said.”   ― Nick McDonell

It’s so hard to communicate because there are so many moving parts. There’s presentation and there’s interpretation and they’re so dependent on each other it makes things very difficult.”   ―     Garth Stein

In making a speech one must study three points: first, the means of producing persuasion; second, the language; third the proper arrangement of the various parts of the speech.-   Aristotle

The wise ones fashioned speech with their thought, sifting it as grain is sifted through a sieve.-   Buddha

If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time – a tremendous whack.”   ―     Winston Churchill

Some of the most powerful speeches I have given have been delivered in the dedicated silence of my actions.”   ―     Steve Maraboli

 “No audience ever complained about a presentation or speech being too short”   ―     Stephen Keague

How to start your own Business


ID-100148272

We all have dreamed  of owning a business; to be the boss once in our life. The growth of products, services, demand of different products and supplies are always increasing, only the changes were noticed on products and technologies. For example, food supply needs were different 100 years ago; however today, business is still going strong. As a result,  entrepreneurs are still making money in the food supply business. Most of us think that there is no way to get into the food supply business; there is a lot of competition, there is need of large financial support, assets are required. Well! I agree with all your thoughts and I would add that these are challenging factors, but not big as we think they are. Believe me! It’s possible and you can make it come true. You can be a great businessperson .

Here, we’ll take a look at the necessary steps  to successful businessperson. Having said that, don’t expect  your dream to  come true next month or next year. I am just opening the window for you that you believe is closed. I will promise you that by the end of this article you won’t feel as if your dream is impossible! You are the main player of your game; I can show you how to move foward. I am also sailor just like you; we can help one another on this trip to building a business. The Golden steps to think of before you start a business. Note:  Please create a business plan, because most businesses fail without one! Have a spreadsheet and ask yourself the following questions: 

Do you have a working knowledge of  that business? Do you have experience? If yes, then you can  go on to the next steps and if no, then learn how that business works because books can be a source of learning and advice on what and what not to do..

■Analyze yourself. I think your journey is beginning now. Did your friend or the company report attract you to start a business? If your answer is yes, then think twice because this is not something you are passionate about–you are just interested in the business because you saw big profits. I recommend not to choose that business because you can only overcome today’s competition if you are really passionate about it. 

■Remember it is always a great idea to follow the same business that proved successful since in the U.S. we don’t like to take chances. However,  financial freedom does not always allow us to get the franchise business we’d like. This is why we need to develop some ideas that can help us to succeed.

■ Research and  look to see if your business may find success, how many competitors you may have and most importantly what you have that is unique to offer (not necessarily different if you believe the business can succeed in the traditional way) compared to others. In United States, people don’t take a chance on something new unless you can sell your concept before the products are on the market. Please research and find a unique aspect to your product before investing in a business.   ■It is best to avoid investing large amount of money in a possible business venture. Find out from resources if you can sell your products or services on a very minimal level. For instance,  if you are trying to sell your product you might first contact vendors for information about what is required to run the business and to raise your level of expertise about this business and possible products. Once you can see how much money  is needed and learn how to establish capital from profit, you can establish your own business from scratch.

The described steps are essential part of researching a business and/or product. Now I will share some traditional steps that you can go through, so you don’t miss any necessary information. Please do share your success and ideas to help others establish a business and feel free to also share your questions Your success can be great achievement for me:).  

 A to Z steps for starting new business

1. Make sure you have the knowledge and experience, along with performing enough research before you go any further.

2. Make plans, goals, seek financial advice. In addition, see if there are any programs that can help to start your business.

3. Select the name of your business and structure (according to your budget and future plan.

4. Register your business at a state website or in person. Small business doesn’t cost you much;  the fees vary by state.

5. Complete all tax information by getting a tax ID and plan for income tax and property tax.

6. Obtain the required license according to what business you’ve chosen. It depends on the type of product. Most of licenses will need to be renewed yearly or every six months, so keep that in mind.  Some chemical related or other manufacturing businesses needa license from the state and the Environment Protection Agency, so contact your lawyer before you reach this stage.

7. Check import-export rules (if this applies), patents, copyrights, trade marks and other laws that can affect your business in the long-term.

Five Secrets of Two Successful People in Technology

There are more than seven billion people in the world , and most of them have the same dream to succeed and become the richest person.

How to Get a Promotion At Work

ID-10047859We all want promotion and it is perfectly possible, but there is a hidden cost behind that we need to pay for, so let’s find out how to get promoted at work. If you just started work and you are looking for a promotion in a short period, then you must be that outstanding personality who has extensive skills and abilities, otherwise getting promoted needs passion before an employer sees your potential. Getting a promotion requires that your knowledge and abilities come to the attention of your boss and your company.

It is also wise question to ask yourself, “Does my company have an opportunity for promotion? Is my company is progressing? Does anybody else get promoted?” Because sometimes, a small company doesn’t have that opportunity, so find out. In some cases people work for a long time and never get promoted, even people who were recently may get an opportunity for promotion. If this is the case, then please read and go through the following steps and find out what is putting you behind. If you just started, then these suggestions should give you stairs to touch your progress.

  • “Do you have what it takes?” I mean to say look at your abilities and skills and compare them with the requirements for a higher position. Do you have the skills and abilities required for a higher position?
  • Once you believe  you have enough self-confidence and can be responsible to do this, start working toward your goal everyday by by learning new tasks at work every day.
  • Create positive energy, take on responsibilities and listen to others, because in the future those are the people you going to work with.
  • You need to start listening to people and earn the respect and trust of fellow employees who will be willing to approach and follow you.
  • If you think you have obtained this level, then you should start trying to get the new position.
  • Take a risk and never be afraid you asked for the higher position, because you would never learn if you able to do the work or not. This is one way that your supervisor will know that you are more enthusiastic and aggressive about your role.
  • Always follow the rules; avoid smoking, drinking and other addictions at work because some time you don’t know what is going on inside the office, so stay away from addiction.
  • Think, talk and learn business basics and act like a responsible person, because no company will promote you even you have skill. In addition, wear proper clothing  and be polite, as these are all  values that leaders need.
  • If you think your opportunity has been given to someone else then it is important to find out from your supervisor what skills and tasks you are missing on work performance and then you can shine your sun again. (I know sometimes it’s difficult to do, but asking politely will make you seem more valuable to your supervisor).
  • Create a plan where you want to go and how you can distinguish yourself over other workers.
  • Every challenge for other employees can be opportunities for you.
  • Always do more then asked (in the same area of work), as this will prove that you will deserve more responsibilities.
  • Add more skills, training and apply these at your work tasks because it will show you have gained from your learning. It is also wise to let other people know about your accomplishment through conversations or any indirect way that you can think of (emails, certifications on your desk, etc.). Otherwise, no one will realize what you’re doing or what you’ve accomplished.
  • Work on yourself and improve every day, because after all, quality matters.
  • Finally, communicate more, meet more people and leave your image on everyone’s heart by sharing interesting knowledge, good compliments, along with faithful and true words.
  • If you have the above qualities- believe me, you are there. If not, please start to add to your skills and learning little by little and believe me, no one can stop you from getting a higher position.

How to Remove Viruses from your Computer

ID-100101716Viruses are like an uninvited guest. They come without our knowledge and damage what they are programmed to do. They spread from one computer to another and conflict with everyday operation of our computers. The viruses come via e-mails, downloads, funny images, videos and are sometimes hidden in the software and files that you download.

Viruses and computer security are very serious issues nowadays, but sometimes issues occurs due to dysfunction of software and hardware. Without taking any time let’s find out if our computer is infected by virus and how we can remove the virus. If you follow the information that I have provided, I am sure that you save  plenty of money and even you can become a self-reliable virus expert. Please share your thoughts, experiences and responses, because in near future I am planning to share some tips on computer security, which are one of major concerns in Information Technology today.

How to find out if your computer has viruses? Here are the probable symptoms.

1.       Your computer starts freezing or performing slower than normal.
2.       Your computer crashes and restarts or restarts often by itself.
3.       Applications are not working properly, printing error messages, and other error messages or drives become inaccessible.
4.       Unexpected repeated sounds and web browsing and/or fake virus alerts.

These are the steps that you can take to remove viruses and keep your computer safe.

1.       If you are at you work then call the IT department if you find any of those symptoms or something abnormal.
2.       First things first! Disconnect the source of the Internet from your computer. Once you disconnect from Internet you are not spreading the virus to other computers or harming your computer anymore. You can disable the network or take out the Internet cable to put this step in action.
3.       Back up  all of your files by using CD, DVD, an external hard drive or any other storage device.
4.       Run the anti-virus CD then install the anti-virus so you can be assured everything is up-to-date with the anti-virus. If you don’t have anti-virus software then find one and scan your whole computer. You can trust free anti-virus or the cheapest anti-virus software, as long as it’s from a reliable source with good reviews, because the experience of other people tells you more than anything. Please do that research before installing. Do share in comments if you find good anti-virus programs so others can also be helped.
5.       Remove the viruses and install all the updates for the virus program.
6.       If you didn’t succeed in removing the viruses then the best bet will be to wipe out or format the hard drive and re-install the operating system. If you do this step, then it will cost you a loss data. That is the best way since the virus removal didn’t succeed (if data is very important you can contact an expert for help, but the chances of saving your data, at this point, are rare).
7.       If the computer has been cleaned of all viruses, then you can restore all the files.
8.       You must follow these steps from now on!
9.       Update your virus software, use an Internet firewall.
Nowadays, computer security is a big question and the answer is not clear. So that all of us may benefit,  do share your opinions of this article and other areas of computer security.

How to Buy Stocks and How to make Money in Stocks

ID-10090382I don’t have a five minute video which claims that you will be a millionaire or stocks picks that I can assure you will definitely make money. However,  I am sure that I can offer you some recommendations. These recommendations can help you to increase your stock profits or help you to stop losing money on the stock market.

Please check the “About Me” page on this site to learn what I stand for. Let me clarify that I am one of you with the desire to uplift myself along with you. The  goal of this blog is to help you make your mental object easier with real fact guides.

 

To buy stocks

  • Open a bank account if you don’t have one.
  • Open a stock trading account with a trading company; it depends on the country and place, but normally they require a mature age, a bank account, a deposit and ID’s.
  • It takes from one day to a week to clear the paperwork for your trading account.
  • Once it is approved, you are ready to buy and sell stocks.
  • You can trade online, in person, as well as via phone, an you can make your own stock selections.

How to make money in stocks

  • The best parameters are to find out the following: quarterly earnings, yearly earnings, new products, new management, news about the company and its competitors ,and to demand view the products or services on the market.
  • If there are more buyers, then sellers price will make the price go up. In a reverse scenario, thenthe price go down.
  • It might surprise you, but when companies lose the stock price can go higher and the company who is profiting still the stock’s price may be down, so never guess by price.
  • Known stocks are expensive, but you aware of your invested companies products and management so you are not shooting arrow in the sky.
  • You can make money through a dividend if your invested company is doing well.
  • outlearn about the companies which exist and you can visualize companies such as Wal-Mart, Toyota, Honda, Hindustan lever, Reliance etc.
  • Check the balance sheet and find out what they really stand for.
  • Check the company’s debts and assets to  find out if you really think that company is going to make money.
  • I have learned that penny stocks and low cost stocks are associated with high risks and high rewards. Unless you are the part of company, you will never be able to find the real value the company. So stay away from it; this is my experience.
  • Finally, I would like to share the most important information that the stock market will not change your life over night or in weeks. It requires passion and constant effort on invested companies.
  • Remember, you only make profit; when you sell stocks don’t assume or predict values before the sale.
  • Again, everyone has their own opinion, so don’t put trust 100% of trust on any stock broker or adviser because you are the owner of your money.

These are my tricks and tips that you should apply before you buy any stock. Please share yours ideas and opinions about investing in stock market. I am sure together we can make great achievements!

How to Reduce Stress

ID-10032969

Work pressures on deadlines, a supervisor’s warnings and job securities are really altering the entire picture of a person in few seconds. Exam preparations, family issues, natural calamities, financial issues and some life threatening accidents really change us from who we are, until we see the issue is resolving. A person may have been smiling while ago; now they may be just sitting in corner and not saying anything or putting their hand on their head with a  sad face or having completely stressed face like “ life without breath.” I am sure we all are the victims of s stress and some are facing high and some medium stress, but surely it is a serious problem biologically as well as psychologically and we need to understand it and address it.

I think that one healthy person, with perfect health and wealth, feels like poor and sick in a few minutes; this is the influence of stress. So, how can we deal with this? What should we do to understand and manage stress? How can we benefit from minor stress and our schedule? The answers of these all questions are possible and positive. We can eliminate high portions of our stress by changing some of ways of thinking and life style.

Sometime stress can be helpful for achieving a goal with proper time management, but when stress exceeds, it start to affect our body negatively. A high stress situation also associated with a serious disease such as high blood pressure, heart issue, mental problem, tiredness and many other issues that create dysfunction in our bodies.  It is our responsibility to find out all we can about this problem and address it so we can be a healthy citizen of our community.

  • Most of us don’t realize that we are stressed, so find out when you are stressed; believe me it will work. It did make me calm, by remembering the consequences of that.
  •  Recognize that there are problems like deadlines, exams, family problems, or any other issue that creates stress. Learn the truth that, whether I will do something about it or not, the problem is going to stay there, so why should I stress, why should I act different than normal.
  • When a problem occurs, engage your mind in some other things besides concentrating on your problem, unless you need to take quick action on problems like earthquakes or a heart attack. You can take time to think and analyze problems such as a job issue, exams preparation, etc.
  • Yoga and/or exercises will make your body and mind healthy, so give little time to one or both every day. If you are busy, then give 10 minutes to yourself (at any place), do some yoga, and feel your breath. You can find plenty of videos and articles about this short yoga.
  • On stressing, if you start to drink coffee or eating junk food to feel better, it will reverse the condition of health. Instead,  eat fruits, vegetables or other healthy foods that will help to relieve stress.
  • Learn to say “NO,” rely on written notes rather than your mind, and plan everything ahead of time.
  • Change your thinking towards everything, like what will happen if I will give a gift late, since I forget? What can be done if I make mistake? Will it matter by next year? Then start to take things easy.
  • There are always good and bad days, failure and success, so take these normally. Learn from failure and be ready for the worst. Make sure to avoid getting too excited about success, too.
  • Always hug, kiss and touch a loved one, which will make you feel to having someone close.
  • Write your worries and the causes of stress on paper, besides feeling it inside the body.
  • Have your principle and your ways to live life so you don’t develop conflict between you and others.
  • Talk to friends and relatives whenever you feel stressed.
  • Reward yourself after you solve your stress issue.
  • Take massages, a bath and other healing techniques once in a while to help relieve stress.
  • Problems?  Everyone has them; think of solutions and avoid thinking about problems for little bit of time–it’s not the end of world.
  • Today is another beautiful day, the stress was yesterday, why bother thinking about it. Look for new options, new directions and I am sure you will find your way.
  • Believe in faith, prayer and yourself that there is something functioning in your body that inspires to do good for others. Find that person in you and enjoy your stress free life.

I am always here to learn from you and share my knowledge, so please leave comments in box below or contact me via the contact page.

How to Improve Memory

ID-10060457

I would like to point out that biological study of the mind requires a strong background and depth knowledge, but in our normal life there are ways to improve our memories. I am addressing some problems as examples here that I think make a big difference, if those can improve.

  • Study the answers but forget the same answers during exam.
  • Forget the given information’s, appointments or promises.

These kinds of issues may cause problems in your work, between friends, as well as with your loved one. They might think that you purposely forgot or that you don’t care, but real reasons are different. When your boss gives you a warning about not forgetting next time about something important, it is also embarrassing. I am sure there are many people around us who have these issues. So how can we start addressing this problem? What should we do to improve ourselves? Is it possible? YES…let’s do this!

These instructions appearances like we already know, but if we will implement, then only we can see results.

Let’s start from today…

  • We strongly agree that our memory is best and we can definitely improve, because the brain never gets old.
  • Anger and stress create depression that reduces our concentration. If we cannot concentrate, then our attendance of mind decreases and we start to lose our energy and begin to avoid these enemies of memory.
  • The brain is a part of the body. When we exercise, our brain blood and oxygen circulation also get refreshed and energized, so exercise every day.
  • Create an image of the event or task that you have to remember. For example, if you try memorizing an answer, then make a story about that and watch the little images of story through your mind, you will surely remember. Note cards and repeating information also helps to memorize.
  • Please get involved and stay 100%, because most of the time our mind is planning the next trip to Alabama and we are hearing class lectures–how can that help us to remember? Pay attention!
  • When you find new items, persons or concepts please characterize these pieces of information and repeat them as soon as you learn. It will definitely create an improvement in your memory.
  • Socialize, get together, enjoy movies and sports and laugh. These qualities will give emotional support, strong health and less memory decline in the long-term.
  • Eat more fruits, vegetables, dry fruits and follow doctors’ and experts’ recommendations.
  • Associate new memory with the information that you already know.
  • Teach someone a new concept, as this will increase your own memory.
  • Keep your mind busy by learning new games, reading newspapers, playing Sudoku, puzzles, and other mind challenging games.
  • Use your all senses such as color, image, smell, look, style, taste, position and other ideas that your mind and sense can agree with.
  • Write down 12 to 15 words and try covering them up and try to memorize the words and on the paper. Try again by using the previously mentioned technique by knowing color, environment, lines and other tricks and note the change. This is a magic of implementation.

I am trying to add some value toward your memory so you don’t miss any opportunity or relationship just because of forgetting. Please share if you have something to add or have any questions.

                                                                                        :Amazing Words:
There are lots of people who mistake their imagination for their memory.  ~Josh Billings
The existence of forgetting has never been proved:  We only know that some things don’t come to mind when we want them.  ~Friedrich Nietzsche
What we remember from childhood we remember forever – permanent ghosts, stamped, inked, imprinted, eternally seen.  ~Cynthia Ozick
All our lives we are engaged in preserving our experiences and keeping them fresh by artificially sprinkling the water of memory over them. They have ceased to retain their original smell and fragrance. Do you call it life— this effort at the preservation of a phantom freshness in something that is withered and gone? ~Vimala Thakar
The sense of smell can be extraordinarily evocative, bringing back pictures as sharp as photographs of scenes that had left the conscious mind.  ~Thalassa Cruso

Let’s live for others

RAMILA BA

  Ramilaben C shah

Let’s live for others -1

I have a lot to write about this person. I am very interested to put this amazing personality between us, because this person is neither on the public image nor on any website, but she was a real person. A person who had family responsibilities and yet found ways to help other people, a person with less education but more knowledge, a person with many diseases but always looked healthy, a person who had plenty of problems of her own but helped others to resolve theirs, a person who was the victim of a lot, but saver of others. I was surprised how someone can be like that! She had been through poverty in her life but since I started to getting to know her, she was considered a middle class woman. I heard from many people about her past life story which is filled with lessons, just like an unopened box which I will reveal in the near future, so stay awake and spread her word, I am sure it will change people’s thoughts about this normal family person.

How many times have you heard of 70 year-old women with diabetes, blood pressure, heart issues and who are victims of plenty of disease saying, “Don’t worry about anything son, I am with you and believe me your problem will be solved.” I don’t know anybody, besides a family member, who may say this, but I never thought someone could do such a thing for others. She passed away in September of 2011. She has five grandsons and three sons, so it’s not the case that she was lacking family love or something, but she was just a distinct personality having a thought for others. She was gifted with spiritual knowledge from Devine “Amba” (Hindu goddess) and from that knowledge t she was able to share her distinct knowledge with others.

I bring this personality between us because at 70, her eyes were full of future dreams and her knowledge was a great healer to her followers. How can she do that? I think her inner power and hope for the future was fulfilled with plenty of colors and planned wonders! When I was a new immigrant and was glad to find a penny, she always told me  that “Get this penny together and use it to help others”. I did not like those words but now I know that, if I would have put those pennies in my pocket, I would not have helped some poor people. I would never understand the value of helping others and being on my own. Her message also relates to looking down and giving because she said  “When you give something  to someone, your hand always stays on top and the taker’s hand always stay on bottom” so it’s great inspiration to go up.

She was a living example to see that how one’s things can be changed by just helping others. When she was giving suggestions to people who know her, her voice had a loud, confident quality and that amazing power, which leaves one speechless; because I am talking about the person who had these problems in that time or in the past, already! .So always help others because there is power or spirit that you believe in to help you and put you up. Before I complete one segment about this wonderful person, I want to share her last tips with you that by saying one word like, “Don’t worry, I am with you, things will be better, I believe in you, you are most powerful and priceless.” We might not know but sometime it changes a person’s life, and I have seen the power of her words. She said, “It might not be a miracle in her words; but her faith and trust in people were leading them to follow the path of truth and get energized”. I wish I would have that tape to attach here because her voice and arrow-type words were sharp and to the heart. Her lessons from these segments are:

  • Always help others, because charity will make you’re a better person with putting someone up. (It can be anything from one penny to saying heart touching words to others).
  • The giver’s hand always stays on top and the taker’s is always below it, so be giver.
  • The value of kind and true words are priceless and sometime it changes someone’s life.

By helping people, she was able to receive the money from her followers and from all that money she was able to help several charities and needy people in India as well as here, so I am putting this real person as an example here so I hope you guys might find something interesting from this little sharing. Do share and lead others and inspire!.

The magic of Sharing Food  -2

As I promised, today I am going to take one more diamond out from this box called “The Best Lesson of Life.” It is 2:00 am in the morning of a hard-working day or 9:00 pm in the evening and  this amazing woman was ready to make dishes that you wanted. I never heard “NO” for any guest, family member or any hungry person at her door. She always mentioned that waking up early, taking a bath and having a heavy breakfast is directly related to better health. By doing that someone will improve their work productivity and digestion and for someone it will be a better way to live–according to nature.

She and her husband (Champaklal shah) had decided to move to another village after their marriage. Champaklal had a stepmother, so he wasn’t getting good treatment and that’s the reason he decided to move to another village without taking anything, except some money. They moved down to a small village where they had a relationship with plenty of villagers, but nobody knew about their financial situation. Champklal had started to work in a small electric store but that wasn’t enough to complete their meal of every day. Her husband (Champaklal) and she both are firm believers of “You can be hungry, but a guest should never go hungry because the guest is god” and on that word they lived. She had multiple times guests coming over to the house and they didn’t know that she and her family didn’t  even have food for themselves. However, her attitude, hope and the way of life was different than others and that changed her life in a few years. After a few years she was at the stage to help others and it ended on the day she died.

She always believed you should have your lunch or dinner with your family, as it will bring the family closer and you can share your all problems and concerns with your family. For this reason she never enjoyed her lunch or dinner alone. I am sharing her small little ideas, but believe me–those ideas can change people lives and I am sure it will change yours too.

Lessons from this segment from this amazing person are:

  • Always share food, your food boxes will always increase.
  • She said that one saint said, “If you are hungry and you eat is prakruti (nature). If you not hungry and you eat it is Vikruti (against nature) and if you are hungry and give that food to another it is Sanskruti (Culture)”.
  • Always eat once a day with your whole family.
  • The best religion and prayer is to feed those who are hungry.

How to find a job

ID-10046621

There are plenty of sources on the market that can provide you information on new job updates. You can find opportunities in the newspaper, online job search websites, company websites, college resource job fairs, public job fairs and from people you may know.

If we have this many options, then why do we have a trouble finding a job? Why is it that sometimes a person has to wait 3 to 6 months or up to a year to find a job? Why does someone give up and a accept low wage job?

The economy, a person’s qualifications and work experience are important factors to finding a job, but they affect the entire country so that we cannot cover all of this information in the blog.

In my opinion finding a job is a challenge; it’s having faith in yourself, its passion and questioning yourself until you find the answer. It is not you or your abilities or skills that are responsible, rather, it is just that you need passion and belief to get there.

Online sources might tell you where the job is , but it’s no guarantee that you’ll even receive a job. The best and most successful approaches include resources that can make you aware of companies and people in field. If someone has an idea of what you stand for and what you’re about before you go for an interview, then your potential will be higher when compared to others. These are some tips that will put you ahead of the game and increase your potential comparison to others…

  • Keep searching and don’t give up because searching a job is a beautiful journey, until you reach the destination. So take it easy and treat the job search as your full time job. (There is no easy way).
  • Submit your complete resume and fill out the complete information on search engines so that recruiters can find you easily. (You don’t have to share your personal information unless you are applying on the company website, so beware).
  • Keep in touch on weekly basis with recruiters and employers so that they know you are interested. Sometimes opportunities knock on your door late, so stay awake.
  • Start to write your knowledge area blogs and share these with recruiters, your groups and people around so they know your knowledge and abilities are up to date.
  • Attend job seminars and public meetings related to your area of expertise; you might be able to create an opportunity for you by sharing your information and becoming acquainted with others in your field.
  • Volunteer some hours of work because this way an employer will know you and you will get an opportunity to be compared to other candidates.
  • If you’re comfortable then share your knowledge and talent with others because sometime you might prove the best asset and that may create a job for you.
  • Always leave a good impression with everyone you meet in your field because later you might get a chance to work with them. It’s amazing to know them because half of your interview is complete already.
  • Never! Never! Never! Give up!
  • Read my following blog posts to make this complete opportunity into real job.

How to Write a Resume

ID-10056859

In this economy, one job opening may have hundreds of applicants who all have the same goal of preparing the best resume and being selected for an interview. You can imagine how challenging it can be to just get an interview! So please take this blog seriously and make your chance of application submission most successful by following up on a job interview and finally obtaining your dream job. Now if we get back to reality, the question comes, how to do that? As I say in my all blogs I will tell you and remind you of your task so well that you can progress in right direction, so let’s do that.

Ask yourself, why would an employer hire you? What you can offer which others cannot? How are you selling yourself? Can you do the job better than others? How much do you fit the job requirements? These are very important questions to ask yourself and address on one page of paper before you move any further. Believe me–this one-time effort will give you a chance to analyze yourself in a professional manner. Once you answer those questions, you will know yourself honestly.

You don’t need to be a language expert to write a resume. On one or two pages of paper you are trying to establish yourself in such way that meets company requirements and present yourself better than other job candidates. If that harmony is established then you can move on to the next phase.

I am sharing these valuable steps from my experience and knowledge. Please make sure you have each of them addressed carefully in your resume.

  • There is no wrong resume or no better format then one you think is professional and suits you.
  • You must have a Header with your name and details in a font that is clearly visible. Arrange objectives or a summary then skills, experience, education, and certification.

These are the body headings of your resume.You can put them on your in way except first your information and second should objectives. So arrange them the way you like –here is nothing wrong or right with it.

  • Header: Provide your contact details with up to date information.
  • Summary or objective: In two to three words please tell the employer about your skills, education and experience that meet with the specific job requirements, along with what area and position you are applying. Please remember these two lines are an opportunity for you to prove your potential. Most important–never lie or put incorrect information because your resume is speaking for you–so doesn’t cheat.

If you have created the perfect header and summary/object, then you are half way to finishing your resume because the rest is you already know. So please use enough time to create a summary. (If you need assistance, do contact me or comment.)

  • Skill: Highlight the skills and other information that highly match with the job requirements. Make sure to address all the skills that you have.

Nowadays all employers are looking for computer software skills,basic math and statistics skills, so please mention if you have these skills or learn them through training sources, as these will be in your favor.

  • Education: Names of schools and their addresses , algon with the year you graduated. Do not forget, if your GPA was high or you were on the president’s role on such or such a year or any accomplishment that proves you a better candidate for the position.
  • Work Experience: This is another area that I would emphasize. Please make sure you start with the most current experience. Fill in your past job responsibilities with action words. Make it short and complete.

This is an additional place where you can sell yourself by showing your past work success. Please mention if you were an employee of the year or nominated for any contributions. You can add this to your certifications and achievements section at the end of your resume or at the end of your work experience

  • Achievements, certifications and language: List all of the certifications and achievements that you have. Do not forget to mention if you know or are learning any foreign language. It is another plus on your resume.
  • A resume must be proofread and checked by others to avoid typos and grammar errors.
  • Never use first person pronouns.  Use action words; describe yourself accurately and address your current job in the present tense.
  • Always add (at the end of your resume) that references are available upon request. (You must have 3 to 5 professional references available).
  • Highlight important portions of your resume, avoid repeating and don’t put in any unnecessary details. (If your supervisor wants to know, he/she can ask you on interview)
  • Please make sure you address each point mentioned above.

How to Write an E-mail

ID-100100858

Once upon a time, you wrote a letter and sent it out by messenger, with doves (birds), then person to person and later the mail system developed. In the mail system, it depends on distance, but normally you get mail in two days to week. Technology has changed; now you can send an e-mail in a few seconds, so the time for you to think has been decreased. You write letter on paper so your eye does the proofreading and you check it before putting it into the envelope. That system is disappearing, so you have to be very careful when you write a professional e-mail because one paragraph decides more than you can think of!

I want to write this post about finding the more writing common mistakes and suggesting some solutions. Please remember, it takes one second to click send, but it can put you down or take you up, the choice is yours and that is why I bring this topic up here.  You also want to keep in mind that you are doing formal writing— in verbal communication a person might forget, but written letters and e-mails always stay somewhere, so watch before you write.

  • Start with “Hi Dear,” the person’s name or something that is appropriate. If you’re writing a professional letter, please mention “Mr. Respected” or the best that can describe them. Never start a subject without addressing the person.
  • The subject line is a very important part of your e-mail. It cannot be “Hello” or someone’s surname or left empty. You address the subject as what this e-mail about?
  • Write short and to-the-point and never use shortened words like; “what” to “wat” or “because” to “cuz.”
  • Use simple words and grammar.
  • Analyze the reason for writing—are you replying, answering or asking? Once you find out then answer accordingly such as, “Would you please respond to me,” “I am writing to ask” or whatever the matter is , but write about that matter.
  • Starting and ending are key points, so make sure you end with something positive and look to see if any information needs to be forwarded?
  • At the end of the letter you must use “Sincerely,” “Yours,” “Yours faithfully” or “Yours truly.”
  • Again, you don’t need to be an expert to write an e-mail. When you reply or write an e-mail please follow…

C: Careful: Write and proofread since you can’t delete a sent e-mail.

A: Appropriate: Use appropriate language by knowing whom you are addressing.

R: Read and re-write: Please take a quick look to read and rewrite whatever you need to.

How to Be success at work

ID-10034801Believe me or not! But my instincts are loudly telling me that you are going to read this article. If you do have something scheduled, you might not, but I am sure that at your first sight this title will interest you. I hope that this article will not only build interest, but also fill those empty spaces that we all are looking to be filled. In this wonderful journey of our life, “Work” is our best friend that will follow us all the way until we consider ourselves retired. Work is a part of our life that we cannot avoid in our routine, so why can’t we put it close to our hearts? “It is very true that we should do something that we love, but do we have that option? If not, bring that heart to your work.” This is a very important concept to understand before I share with you valuable keys. If a married couple doesn’t love each other, they will end up getting a divorce; if two legs don’t walk in harmony, this will affect the walk; if two eyes do not work in harmony, and it will conflict vision, so if you don’t/ won’t love your work, you will not succeed. Unfortunately, I can’t offer you anything, I am sorry! If you are convinced with me then please put your time in reading this article.

I am not an expert, but I am a fellow traveler on this train, so I can feel it and may have experienced it in past.

  • To perform one hour of show, actors read and prepare for their role several times until he/she is found to be perfect. So imagine your job responsibilities, start to learn and became perfect on each task. That is your best starting because most of the time we don’t even read once we get the job.
  • Don’t assume, don’t predict and don’t start thinking about anything, unless you really understand the problems or confusions, because most of the time we don’t wait for it and our reaction or body language answers to another’s in a negative way.
  • Accept confidently the assigned work, understand and create a plan in advance according to deadline.
  • Learn from seniors, co-workers and from your friends and acquaintances, because fish will not care outside of the water; in the same way, put that 8 hours of your day to learn and grow on that atmosphere.
  • Find out the supervisor’s expectations and wants, because if y don’t try to write advice that can help, you might stop coming to the blog and I might not achieve my goal from this website. In the same way your supervisor, manger and your company will not get what they want. Then how long you will be able to survive?
  • Technologies, management and systems keep changing every day to find better, so go with that flow. Take required training and get knowledge in that area.
  • Evaluate yourself and increase your confidence in that manner.  If you know what you accomplished today then you can address it, if needed. Remember you are the boss of that plan, so prepare this planned success story which you can enjoy at each month and believe me, one day other people will make you the reason of that celebration.
  • Very important! Take it easy, things happen, avoid conflict and mind your own business.
  • Have faith and believe in yourself, and don’t give up, because the sun never forgets to rise; it’s just hiding between clouds sometimes, so always shine.
  • Again! Please evaluate yourself and make a plan for improvement …Do share your experience so we can celebrate together.

As always, I would like to inspire you and want you to create that vision of your dream so you can run for your achievements! Please find yourself and try to correct it, if you have any questions please share it in the comments, then I and others will address it and learn from it.

Colors and Your Life

ID-10059203

As an Artist I know the value of primary and secondary colors, along with a great mixture which creates amazing sparkles of a wonderful rainbow, but I never thought that even famous companies would hire psychologists and experts to decide the colors of their company walls or to design a gym in colors that make a significant difference. The color choices also depend on the kind of industry–from entertainment to food to education. I really never thought about it. It also inspires me, today, to share this amazing topic with my wonderful readers. Color therapy is also used to heal the body with different approaches, such as radiation. Astrologers also use different colors of stone to heal health and life troubles.  Let’s address each color and their subjective approach:

ID-10074518

:Red:

Who doesn’t love this wonderful color! It’s very unique and symbolizes love. Since it is the same color as blood and fire, it furthermore indicates energy, power, love, danger, war, strength, and irritation as well as passion, desire, and love. This color is correspondingly related with our feelings, emotion and body.  This color is likewise indicates good luck in Chinese culture, while wedding and ritual colors in Indian culture. It also explains why restaurants and some food packaging companies use food color. When we see bleeding blood from a body, we get that irritation or uncomfortable feeling; we know why now! It is quite interesting that we know now why some signs; STOP, fire, BUY IT NOW and High Voltage are painted red.

“The true color of life is the color of the body, the color of the covered red, the implicit and not explicit red of the living heart and the pulses. It is the modest color of the unpublished blood.” –Alice Meynell

ID-10031431

:Orange:

Orange color is a combination of red and yellow. It is the color of sunshine and flowers. It can help us to achieve success, encouragement, fascination and happiness. It is not very commonly used, but it is very close to nature since we can find many things with this orange color. Psychologists also believe that it can help the human brain and electrify other organs of the body. Overall orange is a very motivated and inspiring color. We should have this color close to us because it will promote our success in life in a positive way. I think that is why sunshine, oranges, peaches and other fruits, along with other examples holds a noble message for us.

“Orange is the Happiest color”- Frank Sinatra

ID-10021313

Yellow:

The yellow color is a remark of uplifting and hope. It also denotes honesty, loyalty and is used as warnings in documentation.  We can see yellow and black signs on some tools and other warning indications. It brings self-assurance and recovers our thought process. Light yellow will dilute in white color or any other well-lit color.  It is also demonstrates instability and caution of safety. It was very interesting to me that we don’t find numerous yellow cars. Even so, we can see that we don’t commonly use yellow in clothes or other packing of product except kid’s products.

Yellow wakes me up in the morning. Yellow gets me on the bike every day. Yellow has taught me the true meaning of sacrifice. Yellow makes me suffer. Yellow is the reason I am here.” — Lance Armstrong.

ID-10025440

:Green:

This is the color that symbolizes nature, freshness and fertility. It similarly gives balance in mind and health. It has the power of stability and determination. It has great healing power and is directly related to human well-being. It also represents reuse, recycle, “go” green signs.

“He had that curious love of green, which in individuals is always the sign of a subtle artistic temperament, and in nations is said to denote a laxity, if not a decadence of morals.” — Oscar Wilde

ID-10072152

:Blue:

It represents depth and inner power. It indicates reserve, quiet, honest and loyalty. This color is directly related to professionals since it also represents reliability, responsibility and trustworthiness. It provides calmness and relaxation, just like blue sky and water which make us feel relaxed. Facing change can be difficult and time worthy; however blue it provides calmness and very self-resilience.

“Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones…it will always stay blue; whereas yellow is blackened in its shades, and fades away when lightened; red when darkened becomes brown, and diluted with white is no longer red, but another color – pink.” — Raoul Dufy

ID-10060085

:Purple:

It is combination of blue and red. It symbolizes luxury, royalty, ambition and energy. It is also a preferable color for children and women and very rare to find in nature. It improves spiritual and imagination power. It represents distinct, creativity and mystery. Be aware! This color also indicates immaturity, impractical, corruptness and a highly social person.

“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.” 
― Alice Walker

ID-10017870

:White:

White is the suggestion of cleanness, purity, virginity, peace and perfection.  The white color also represents good wishes and better health. It has no simulation power but it stands for good beginnings. White also declares fairness and equality. Medical practitioners, priests and angel’s statues are painted in white colors.

“The first of all single colors is white … We shall set down white for the representative of light, without which no color can be seen; yellow for the earth; green for water; blue for air; red for fire; and black for total darkness.” –Leonardo Da Vinci

ID-100114980:Black:

Black is a sign of strong emotion. It is the signal of mystery, confusion, hidden and unknown things. It is also the color known for death and as the devil’s color; it also warnsof negativity. This color is often used to symbolize prestige and professionalism in some professions, such as law. Overall this color is strong, sophisticated and the beginning of one phase and ending of another phase in life.

“I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down, / Livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town, / I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime, / But is there because he’s a victim of the times.”–Johnny Cash, lyrics from “The Man in Black”.

Faith Never Dies-Atit Shah

ID-10031070

Faith Never Dies-Atit Shah

I would like to share this little story that will say more words then anything. I wasn’t present at the time of the event, but after it took place. I did go to that place and saw a wonderful event which I can never forget. I hope it will be an amazing animated experience for you because whenever those events come to my mind I became stronger; I changed my plan and forgot I was tired or about to give up a little while ago. Whenever something negative happened in my life and I stop believing, this life changing event wakes me up and says “I am alive, why not you”. I hope this story will also wake you up with that amazing power of Faith.

It was at the noon, the temperature was almost 45 degrees and AC wasn’t installed in our electric store in India. I was there to give a lunch break to my dad. My best friend came to me and he said today something happened in the market! Oh my god! It was amazing! He was sweating, but his voice tone was high and energetic, not his usual tone though! His face was telling me that he wanted to share something really interesting, so I stopped and he started to describe what happened. My friend was sitting in that shop where this event started, so I am fortunate enough to share with you guys this amazing life-changing story.

Normally, in India there is one day assigned when all kinds of priests, sages, poor people, and beggar’s visit the market and accept any amount of money to live their life and to pray God. As usual on that Thursday noon, the team of those various people were there and going from one shop to another for money. In the market, the new convenient shop owner was replaced by a guy who had bought that shop. He was not a believer of God and he always disrespect all kind of monks by asking “Where is proof that there is a god?”  The sage, wearing a dark orange dress, long hair, wooden paduka on his leg, loudly chantry the mantra and said “Bam Bam Bhole, Alakha Niranjan”( Bam Bam Bhole is for worship of Shiva and Alakha Niranjan means freedom from all kind of worries and attachment to the world) asked the shopkeeper to give him whatever he could afford. My friend was also at the shop to buy some groceries so he mentioned that the shop keeper did not say anything to that Sage. The sage called him son and used his metal stick type of metal drum which creates a noise similar to a bell, and asked him for some charity money again. The shopkeeper smiled and asked him, “Why should I give you money?” The sage told him, “Son! Give me the money in the name of God, on his faith because I want to spend my whole life dedicated to the god, that Faith and I know he will take care of  me, so please give me whatever you can afford.” The shopkeeper smiled and replied, “ what do you mean by Faith, where is God?” He made that sage angry–all other groups  were listening to their conversation and avoided going into that shop. They tried moving forward  to collect funds from other shops, but that sage did not even move one foot further from that place. The shopkeeper also warned him that he should leave from his property or prove to him there is a God and faith. The sage told the shop keeper that they will meet in middle of the market at the end of the day, and said, “You will see how my faith in god proves to you there is a God, as today by the end of the day I am going to collect the money which you have earned in a month”. The shopkeeper said loudly, “If that would happen, I will do whatever you tell me to do. After listening, the sage left.

Two to three hours later there was a big group of people and a big line. Everybody’s face was contented. Some were chanting, some had closed their eyes to concentrate on that statue, somewhere loudly saying, “Jay Ambe” (name of the Divine in Hinduism) and “Jay Mataji” (Name of Divine in Hinduism). The sage was sitting in the middle and he dug a bit when there was no one, and set up the statue of Divine Amba and told a couple of people that it came from earth. All the people from village came to this place to see the miracle and prayed. The people also put lots of money for the charity and some offer for big donation to make this great temple here. The sage collected almost one month of salary in four hours. People had that FAITH that belief in God that nobody even thinks to check anything because that is the power of FAITH. In the evening, the sage and shopkeeper met at the place they decided on. The shopkeeper did not have any words to say, his face was down and he was feeling sorry for whatever he had done. He also told to that sage, “I lose sage, from today you are my Guru and I am even ready to follow this path, please make me your follower”. I really know the value and power of this Faith.

The sage called to charity and announced that this is all he had done to open the eyes of that shop keeper and let the people know the power of Faith and belief. There was no miracle in the morning here but I wanted to teach this lesson to all people who are like that shopkeeper that they only believe what they can see. The shopkeeper donated all the money to charitable trust and left that village. It’s been almost ten years since that event and not one villager has seen this sage again. People made his little statue and small temple of “Ma Amba” where he shaped this example to open the eyes of the shopkeeper On that statue it says, “Faith never dies”.

Bird O’ Little Bird

ID-10020234

Bird O’ Little Bird

Search for the quiet and set down in the park,

No one was there and it was about to became dark,

A bird was on the tree’s branch, and I thought it is there for peace,

It caught my attention and relieved my tension…Bird! O’ Little Bird.

The branches were weak, and the wind of winter was strong,

Thin legs and fat body, it was acting like it knew everybody,

The branch was about to go down and wind was flowing,

Bird was moving with the branch and, lost with nature like no wings…Bird! O’ Little Bird

I realized that even I have more than wings and, nature in front!

A bird was there to enjoy the nature and not to find quiet,

A bird was happy as it is a part of nature,

I go next time like that nature bird and I hope you all too! …Bird! O’ Little Bird

 

 

How to Prepare for Test

ID-100112495

How to Prepare for Test

Student will achieve expected grade or not is probability but he/she is going to have test for sure. We have to believe that it is factual part of student’s life, but not life. I just mentioned not life because I don’t want you to take it as seriously, as you’re worrying because stress will not help you whatsoever. There is always test in life. when we graduate, we will be tested for job interview. When we plan to get married, we will be tested by spouse family that we have those abilities to run family. The series of test will be ON and ON. We will be tested in  every stage of life so please take these fear out. Test is not life, it’s a part of life.

Now let’s get back to main topic a “Test”. I am sure you started reading my article one day or month before your exam and you want to acquire particular keys that can really help you to prepare. I will share that tips at the end of article but remember- one, two or three hours of exam will not determine your destiny however it will just tell you that you weren’t prepared  well in test. The poor performance in test  is  inspiring you that please wake up you are not moving towards your goal and dream. If you prepare to live those miserable life or trouble on your way then you can have your own choice. Believe me things might be worse than your imagination so I am sure that no one won’t ensure  future such a way. There are plenty of people who want to go to school but their family and responsibilities not allowing them. There are millions of low wage worker who really know the value of education and ready to give their 100% on the test but unfortunately they have bills to pay and family to feed. We are fortunate with families and situation so “Let’s make this test of life; the best without any time waste”.

We heard very common issues most of the time and I would like to address here separately. 

  • I study everything and forgot on the test.

Please try to understand because once you understand , you will be able to address them in way that you might not able to receive 100% but surely you will pass the test.

If you study prior to few hours of test, you will not be able to remember that one month of syllabus so study and give enough time to memorize and understand.

Make your study alive because “When i put hot tea mug on your hand, you are going to feel so probably will not forget“, because it is experience, a feeling. When you read you grasp some, write you get more then some and experience  you get most of it!.

  • I am so worrying because I am having test next week.

Your worry will not solve anything and if you prepared enough then do not worry.

Believe in the fact that from 100 students only few will have A’s, B’s and some have C’s,D’s and even F. It is normal way of grading so don’t stress or worry. The statistics will show your performance of that particular subject of particular grade for one exam, would that be a big deal, i don’t think so!

I think it is great inspiration and message with yellow sign to prepare for next exam.  In your mind, just make sure that you are ready to give 100% on exam and you have covered syllabus.. There won’t be earthquake or snow on the day of exam so please take those things out and  just be prepare. Believe me next year you will not have this issue again.

If you have any question, please post your issue on comment, I would like to address and make this exam thing easier for you.

The tips for preparing on Exam:

  • Please take this seriously and work hard because the entire peers has a same vision to achieve the best grade as you do. You will receive what you put.
  • Treat syllabus like your best friend because it has all the direction and guideline for whole semester. Read and think it, understand it and breathe it  whole semester.
  • I know we all make plenty of schedules but only few’s works so Please try to make schedule the way you can implement. Make it approximate schedule by  Two hours for study and two hours for eat, shower or make very precise with exact date and time with activity. It is very important because it will give you vision to be prepare.
  • Never worry or stress about school, just study and learn because school time is your opportunity to understand and feel the world. It’s the  only place where we can get wings to our dream.
  • Relax and sleep well prior to exam because, two to three hours of more study will not change your destiny.
  • Study everyday! this is very important key of your success so please add this as priority.
  • Always try to understand the material. It will be hard but will always stay in your mind because you thought and  addressed it. When you will put that thought in action you will have that theoretical power to approach.
  • I know it’s important to have good grade or the best grade but please take those portions easily. Your job was to study hard not that you must have a best grade. Believe me the definition of SUCCESS is wider than those one graded exam.
  • Do flash cards, class notes and see them often because you won’t get a chance to forget.
  • If you have problem to obtain the material, please find out early and seek help from tutor, friends or online resources.
  • The best time to study is right after or same day of your class because its still in the memory, so it will help you to memorize.
  • Check your self on weekly basis that, where are you?
  • Be happy, relax and enjoy this best time of your life. You go to school for study and learn as long as you achieve those you are succeeding.

How to quit smoking

ID-10059556

I don’t have Magical Stick on my hand that I will tell you to stop smoking and, the pack of Cigarette box will disappear from your pocket. If I tell you that, you will get cancer, lung problems, body issues you’ll almost damage all organs in long term, will you stop smoking? Probably no, I might get answer that “I already know”. Even if I tell you that if you smoke one pack of cigarette daily, you will spend almost more than 2500 dollars a year and 75,000 dollars in thirty year. From this amount  your kids can graduate or you can paid up your house loan or start your small business or help those poor’s who really want to do something but their disabilities are not allowing them, but I am sure that I might heard again: “I already know”. If  I know this things then now your question would be, why am i interested in this things and my answer is very simple as I do in all blogs because, it’s possible and I am sure you can quit smoking just have faith, belief and make your mind for this change.

I know my dad always says to all the people who are saying that, “it’s not possible” or “I can’t do it”. He says that we all human are created under the chain of love. We have someone special without whom, we cannot live it. It can be our spouse, our parents, our best friend or anyone. Everyone has that special one that they believe in, and they can do anything for them. It is very common words to hear that I can do anything for him/her; he/she is my life. I want to ask you all people that when these people die, why you don’t kill yourself with him/her, as your loved one is not with you anymore.In few month or years you will start to learn to live without him/her and your whole life will change. Even though you loved someone physically, psychologically and by your heart but still you said “bye” and come back to your normal life. When you were tired, your special one heal you, when you wanted to talk, your special one was there to listen, when you were making mistakes, your special one was there to correct it. He/she was always your positive reflection of your act and today you feel, you are nothing without that special one but still when they passed away you started to learn to live without them. If this is true then why not to live without smoking. I just want to say that if you can live without that priceless person then I am sure you can live without this 10 dollar of cigarette pack.

I have list of people who had dreams to achieve and faith to believe. I have list of people who wanted to; graduate from best schools of US,promotions in the company, succeed in business.  I just wanted  you to know that all my smokers list here says  that some weren’t reach there, some faced serious diseases, few achieved but weren’t able to continue because of health issue and left out were succeeded but they don’t have any control on them because cigarette controls them and soon their health will have more issues. Please don’t try to bring early expiration. Please don’t make yourself in position where people have to take-care of you and you can’t kill yourself and that might be the reason for you to live.

I was just tried to walk you through the future of smokers’ life so don’t mind that. I am sure that nobody wants to go through this part of life. I am sure soon you will start to change and believe. You will quit smoking because you have very important things in your life in compare to that smoking and is surely possible for quit now. Please take your time reduce the amount little by little (as it comfort you),I am sure  you can do that. First happiness of life is healthy body because without that nothing you really can value of! So please STOP smoking. I am so ready to hear some feedback from you and finally I want to apologize if I hurt any of my reader and again wish you best with your new revolution.

Here are some tips that you can apply but remember my magical sticks are hiding on that little inspiration that I just shared. So please keep that in your mind all the time at especially when you smoking. You will see the change because “CHANGE” is also man made word.

  • If you cannot STOP ,start reducing by one pack a day to one pack week or one pack a week to one pack twice a week, as suitable.
  • Keep those images around of serious injured people from smoke.
  • Whenever you smoke please memorize your debt, health and people who have hopes on you.
  • Before smoke please imagines those poor’s, disable and mentally challenged people because they don’t smoke but they are not blessed enough to live healthy life.
  • Remember one pack of cigarette can be about two weeks of food for any poor country citizens.
  • Exchange those addictions by something that you really love to do or love to eat instead of switching to playing game or drinking juice etc.
  • You will find plenty of articles online who shares tips and steps so read once a week and try to follow those procedures, if you think it can help you.
  • Again, everything start from you so your first decision of today and last success of tomorrow is telling you that You, you and only you can do these and that inspiration will inspire you to complete mid part by finding sources and ways which can help you to reduce body weight.

 

Amazing words:

Smoking kills. If you’re killed, you’ve lost a very important part of your life.Brooke Shields

So smoking is the perfect way to commit suicide without actually dying. I smoke because it’s bad, it’s really simple.Damien Hirst

My worst habit used to be smoking but I quit.Katherine Heigl

I stopped smoking. When I stopped smoking, my voice changed… so drastically, I couldn’t believe it myself.Bob Dylan

The Play-Ground of Life

ID-10021499

What cricket! What baseball! and what super ball!
We all are moving around in the ball which named as Earth ball,
White,Black or brown, all are heading towards a same town,
Do you think it’s worth to be a player of this ground?…

 

Nothing much to say and nothing much to pray,
I am just witnessing, and as being a part I have to play,
Truth has been gone and lie has been worn,
Nothing much that I can do, as I am player but not the umpire..

 

I am glimpsing from far, seeing a boat with plenty of stars,
Shadow had been passed as sun of ray are coming to ask,
weather has been changed and god is returning from mars,
Oh! dear never disappoint, I wish you go far!far!far!…

 

Your dream will be truth and happiness will all over you,
If you never forget, you are only you,
Costume will be gone and you will be alone,
So Be nice, Be wise and love truth to find who you are….

Can One Penny Can Make a Difference? Sure it can!

ID-10070429

There was a time a time when you can buy a candy or send out mail with penny. Penny was part of more or less In the financial transactions. Today the importance of penny has been disappearing due to inflation and cost rising even though penny is currency, it’s treated like a, there is no value for it. Last week I had found a few pennies thrown in the middle of the road and that leads me to think about what you can do with a penny.

If you are a person who don’t care much about, think twice because I was also not, before I found this pennies on the road. Remember when one penny expands, it becomes two and soon 100,  which means one dollar. It might take you weeks to make that dollar but imagine the people in Africa who don’t have meal for once a day or orphan kid who don’t have money to buy Christmas gifts. Next time before you throw penny think about your dream to help someone or any kind of charitable because one penny can really make a difference to anybody’s life.

Those few pennies became almost hundreds and I was able to buy a bird food for one dollar. Those few pennies really made an impact on few bird’s life and became an example.

Catastrophic insurance covers three doctor visits per year at no cost and preventive care such as screenings and vaccines. This plan will carry a higher deductible.
  • What varies with the plans is cost. Some will carry higher deductibles. Some ask for higher co-pays. Costs will vary based on where you live. If you want to see what your bill may look like, be sure to check out the website listed below.

Chanakya was a teacher, philosopher and advisor during 300 BC in india. There is well known said about King Chandragupta Mourya and his adviser Chanakya. They had created Mourya empire by demolishing Nanda empire at that time. According to one legendary story Chanakya used to add small dose of poison in food of king Chandragupta Maurya to keep his immune system poisoned attempted to save from enemies. Unaware Chandragupta once fed some food to his queen, Durdhar who was seven days away from delivery. The queen was not able to immune this poison and died in few minutes.

His education and background was unparalleled and incomparable to any other, so hopefully this few advises will serve you to make you better person or able to face challenges in your life

Few best advises to keep from this Great Historical Adviser “Chanakya”

  • Before you start some work, always ask yourself three questions – Why am I doing it, What the results might be and Will I be successful. Only when you think deeply and find satisfactory answers to these questions, go ahead.
  • Never make friends with people who are above or below you in status. Such friendships will never give you any happiness.
  • The biggest guru-mantra is: never share your secrets with anybody. It will destroy you.
  • Treat your kid like a darling for the first five years. For the next five years, scold them. By the time they turn sixteen, treat them like a friend. Your grown up children are your best friends.
  • As soon as the fear approaches near, attack and destroy it.
  • The one excellent thing that can be learned from a lion is that whatever a man intends doing should be done by him with a whole-hearten and strenuous effort.
  • Men have hunger, sleep, fear and carnal intercourse in common with the lower animals. It is only knowledge that a man has more than they. Those men who have not it may be regarded as beasts.
  • As water collected in a tank gets pure by filtration, so accumulated wealth is preserved by being employed in charity.
  • The life, action, wealth, learning and death of a person are determined by God when he is in the womb.
  • It is better to have only one son endowed with good qualities than a hundred devoid of them. For the moon though one, dispels the darkness, which the stars, though numerous, do not.
  • “Learn from the mistakes of others… you can’t live long enough to make them all yourselves!!”
  • You can earn money after losing it, you can make new friends, and also you can get another wife, but this is not the case with body.
  • Test a servant while in the discharge of his duty, a relative in difficulty, a friend in adversity, and a wife in misfortune.
  • A person should not be too honest. Straight trees are cut first and honest people are screwed first.
  • A man is born alone and dies alone; and he experiences the good and bad consequences of his karma alone; and he goes alone to hell or the supreme abode.
  • A good wife is one who serves her husband in the morning like a mother does, loves him in the day like a sister does and pleases him like a prostitute in the night.
  • As a single withered tree, if set aflame, causes a whole forest to burn, so does a rascal son destroy a whole family.

Why Should You Plan a Risk?

ID-100178762

 The new sunshine always gives you a new chance to think, implement and give An opportunity to take one step further upon our dream. There are millions of people who get new ideas and thought to do something but it makes me wonder that why only few reach to their destiny. I would like to point out that, as I am also part of that millions. I believe that creating a risk plan will help us to eliminate future accidents and unplanned events. The chances of a dream come true will be more comparable to who did not plan risk.

 (1)Why should you prepare a risk plan and who need one?

A. There is nice saying which explain the meaning of risk, “Don’t Wait Till You is Thirsty to Dig a Well”. The risk meaning, Foreseen or unseen, desirable and undesirable potential loss from any action. Probabilities of damages, injury, accidents, liabilities, leases are unpredicted and mostly unplanned. Some argue with insurance and some safety plan but those are not as helpful As pre analyzes risk. I decided to share this information because I have seen that, we all are planning every day for something and most are not including risks. Today’s economy and modern world everything is uncertain so most important and wise advice will be to plan a risk. Risk planning will not only makes you feel secure but also gives piece of mind to about your future plan. Your statement will change from, I hope – I wish to I will, and that is best achievement toward whatever you have planned, so start analyzing and change your all plans from today. Every human action has risk but few has a high and few has low risks so we all need to plan risk and no exceptions from it whether you are a businessman, employee, Housewife, student or anybody else.

(2)How to Plan One?

A. You do not need to be an expert to plan your risks unless you are planning for big business or Investing big amounts of money. There is plenty of templates available online which can fulfill.Your plan requirement and risk analysis, if you can not find matching one, just customize one from available.

Example 1: Imagine you cook first time and invited guest but food doesn’t taste good or Overcooked.

In this scenario you won’t find a big deal but still you will run to find options; for ordering  food or take guest to restaurants. You will also need to plan for quick money availability and your timing as well as transportation and many other possibilities so if you have planned risk by guessing few or more of possibilities, you wouldn’t have to go thought that all.

Example 2: If you have planned risk management in your business or project that you are Working, then here are a few areas where you must have thought, such as follows;

A.What could happen? How likely it happened? How bad it will happen? What is? The project and opinions of others in it? What is analyzing and monitoring Strategies? So answer those questions and also follow the available template in the market to identify all the risks in your plan.

Little Story About Puffed Rice (Just for Smile)

ID-10029799

Today evening we all friends were playing cards and had a delightful snack with nice tea. The story began when my eyesight went on that chair where two pieces of puffed rice where sited. I had really started to think about life cycle of that puffed rice and decided to bring among us. There are plenty of people who will write about different things and creatures but nobody will appreciate these little guys so I decided to execute this funny story between us.

Puffed rice born in factory and steamed at high pressure so, there life start with struggle and hard working. In today’s world different procedures has been developed but, mainly this is how “Mamara Maker” process these puffed rice from rice. The Mamara Makers are call creators of this mamara. The rice has been used to prepare several snacks. In India, there is famous snack call “Vagarela Mamara”, where they fry rice under very low temperature with little oil and all spices. After we had a snacks of “Vagarela Mamara”, these two mamara flied to chair. They were sitting on that chair like two lovers are gossiping about their best moments.

As soon as I noticed them, everybody else also noticed. After so much difficult time throughout their birth (Making process) they were all together with their friends to consume in pounds of quantities, in a beautiful plastic packs. Some pieces get broken and loose air control and some goes to people foot. They are cheap and weightless so they move and drop quickly compare to other snacks. Their life is always in critical situation even before they consumed by humans. When my friends brought her home, she fried them and served between us. Now some of them already lost their breath in our stomach and two of these little guys were survival.

They were mistakenly come across to our eyes now. Soon, they are going to throw in home garbage then public garbage and then will be destroyed, without any of their fault. What can I say more about these guys? I hope these guys didn’t have any of their fault, they were just victims. In future, I hope producer will give a better life to these guys. At conclusion I really appreciate mamara to become healthy, less calories snacks for us without any of their personal intention. Wishing long life to all mamaras. I hope this funny life story of two mamara increase your smille. Keep Smiling!!

So most will fall in one or more of these categories and decide to invest in one of the latest computer.

I saw the business man with few hundred thousand to million dollar business having 400 dollar of computer. Imagine the frequency of system crash, technical need, safety and most importantly data. I would strongly recommend to small business owners and multiple computer users to invest wisely.

Why Do You Need Vitamins and Minerals?

ID-10046146Isn’t that surprising when everybody start becoming conscious about vitamin and minerals! I have noticed that in past decade that the momentum of vitamins and minerals needs risen so rapidly. Today that is why I decided to dig more and bring some facts and interesting things about vitamins so we all can have proper understanding on needs, requirement, necessities, and side effects on this important substance which body needs every day.

Vitamins are organic nutrients which are essential to sustain our everyday life. Minerals are chemical elements required by living organization. We need these nutrients to ensure normal metabolism, growth, function and well-being of our life. Most of these substances doesn’t come or produced from out body. It comes from food and supplement that we take in our daily diet.

I would like to adapt the chart from references which indicate Vitamins, Minerals and what food sources can provide those. It is also advisable to remember that the food sources are not as nutrient as they used to because of highly use of fertilizer and chemical to  increase production and killing bacteria. This is the main reason of high demands of vitamins and nutrients supplies. I was really surprise when I saw the growth in businesses of vitamins and minerals in such short period.

How Vitamins work?

There are two types of vitamins; Water soluble and Fat soluble.Fat soluble vitamins stay in fat tissues and liver and utilize when body needed it. Vitamin A, D, E, and K are fat soluble. Water soluble vitamins don’t get stored in stored in body they travel through blood stream and not needed comes out during urination. This type of vitamins needed quicker since no storage facility. It includes Vitamin C, B1, B2, B6, B12, biotin and pantothenic acid.

How much and how many vitamins and minerals you need every day?

These sentences remind me traditional saying “Everything is poison or nothing is poison, it depends on dose”. Imagine, taking one spoon of salt compare to 10 spoon of salt every day and you will realize that how much amount of dose is important. The recommendation dose of each vitamins can highly depends on gender, age and also physical condition (Pregnant women, Construction work might require more intake then less physical work job employee). The best way to find exact dose will be consulting with your doctor. Balance diet and everyday proper intake can really help you to makes you healthy.

Few tips and recommendations before you choose your vitamins and minerals.

  • Today’s vitamins and minerals supplements includes more than just vitamins such as herbals, amino acids and enzymes etc, so don’t self-diagnose, seek advice from your health care provider.
  • Research in this area has been rise so rapidly and ongoing so there is no 100% or complete resources which you can completely rely on. I mean to say that aware of false labels and guaranteed cure statements.
  • Seek advice from experts can really make your purchase worth buying and importantly working for you.

Note:This advises are opinions only. Please seek doctor advise before ingest any vitamins or minerals.

Why Arrange Marriage is a Good Idea?

Shinto_married_couple (1)

arranged-marriage-185x185

Where in the world, you would marry to someone who you know for few hours or few days. You married to person who is completely unknown and all of sudden you deciding to spend your life. If that is the case, you must be ready to call me crazy or already started to looking weird way for this article, but i kindly impulse you to not give up until you read the whole article.

  1. Arranged marriage involves matchmaker such as priest or religious leader, matrimonial site, mutual friends or a trusted third party. Which means arrange marriage has more people to decide your life together. In arrange marriage people also try to find common area for both such as reputation in society, education, family background etc. Example: In Indian culture Both family inquire about each other very deeply and older gives their opinions about their wedding, so you involve more people with experiences so it is less likely you end up divorce.
  2. Both family involves so when something doesn’t go right there are always family to mentor you and guide you.
  3. Around 45% of couples in the United States and Canada find themselves part of divorce rates while averagely divorce rate in arrange marriage is around 8%~(This value was averaged from few articles and can be varied).
  4. There will be few mysteries, curiosity, excitements and secrets on your way because you don’t know much about your partner so you start knowing each other and game will become interesting.
  5. In today societies, guy and girl get enough time to discuss about their like-dislikes and have a right to say NO, if they don’t think they are good couple. This act also give liberty to find right soul mate.
  6. In few traditional families; people seek dowry from bride’s family, not equality in men and women, right of work for women and other issues still arise but those issues has been improved in past decades.
  7. Arrange marriage is popular in India, Africa, the Middle East ,east Asia and few other Asian countries.
  8. Statistics says it all. Read the table below and find the UNICEF, Human Rights Council, ABC News sources information. 1% Divorce rate, 90% arrange marriage in India was really saying more than anything.
  9. Please note that early or forced marriage is not same as arrange marriage.
