Winners VS Losers

Been a while i gez :-)

Here is one old proverb that i look upon when i was on the losing side:


"Winners see the gain, losers see the pain. Winners see an answer for every problems, losers see problems in every answer. Winners see the potentials, losers see the past. Winners see things differently, losers see different things."

So, you have the right guess, i've been experiencing stuff that keeps me at bay (losers bay). That's why i remember about this. Next time we'll meet again, i should be at the opposite bay.

It's Good to Know: How to Be Charming

By Michael Masterson

People who learn how to be charming can wield great power. To enhance your charm, says Brian Tracy in his new book The Power of Charm: How to Win Anyone Over in Any Situation, develop these four specific skills:

1. Be a charming listener by:

  • listening attentively (Turn off that television. Put down that paper.)
  • pausing for a moment before replying (This indicates that you are giving the other person's comments due consideration.)
  • asking questions when you need clarification
  • paraphrasing complicated or convoluted speeches before replying to them

2. Be an attentive listener by:
  • facing the person you are talking to
  • making direct eye contact
  • moving your gaze from one to another of the speaker's eyes as he is talking
  • nodding appropriately
  • providing verbal clues that you are interested in the conversation ("Yes, I see what you mean.") tilting your head occasionally
3. Be quick to smile, laugh, and provide compliments whenever it is appropriate. This may take practice at first, but with repetition it can become a habit. The bonus for you is that it will actually make you feel happier.
4. Act - as much and as frequently as you can - as if you really, really like the other person.

Achievement or convinient?

Why Try To Catch Fish In The Big Wide Ocean, When You Can Easily Scoop Them Out Of A Barrel?

Heard this along? i've been having trouble with thsese options all along. Fish in the barrel is always with less effort, but less satisfaction from the result. so, could go for a whale in the open sea, but with struggle and strive.

Well, i gez the choice is always there, like it or not. Ce La Vi! Live with the deeds.

A typical day . . .

What’s a typical day in Marc Allen's life look like?

He rolls out of bed between 9:30 and 11:00 and brews up a latte. He may or may not do a bit of writing at home, and then he heads over to his office - sometimes. There are days he just hangs around with his family.

Arriving at the office, Marc approves some new projects, takes a call from an aspiring author looking for a publisher, and calls it a day. He's ready to spend the rest of the afternoon and evening with his family.

Could you handle work days like that?

The rewuirements are NOT:

  • You don't need to be highly "educated" to succeed. Heck, Marc swears you don't even need to be a high school graduate.
  • It doesn't require a lot of money to invest. This is from a person who had no money at all when he started.
  • It doesn't require "being lucky" nor exceptional talent. If you can follow Marc's suggestions you CAN succeed.

It requires no experience at all. It requires just one simple thing...

You must believe in yourself enough to say “maybe.”

It is understandable that people are naturally skeptical. It is not just forming a positive mental attitude and the world beats a path to your door.

You ARE going to need to take simple action steps. But if you do that - nothing more, nothing less - the results will astound you.

Think about all the dreams you'd like to accomplish in your life...

Then, Marc Allen's lesson just might be the answer you've been looking for.

What a life! i should have something to look for then, from this start-to-have-boring-life of mine :-)

The Guardian Temperament

The Guardian's core needs are for group membership and responsibility. Guardians need to know they are doing the responsible thing. They value stability, security and a sense of community. They trust hierarchy and authority and may be surprised when others go against these social structures. Guardians know how things have always been done, and so they anticipate where things can go wrong. They have a knack for attending to rules, procedures, and protocol.

Adapted from Linda V. Berens, Understanding Yourself and Others®: An Introduction to Temperament-2.0 (Telos Publications, 2000)


Some ask who needs protections!

Some say they have one, at least; parents, partners, friends, teachers, unseen angels, or even bodyguards.

Some say it only applies to you when you are underage.

Me says I am the guardi@n for oneself.
To take care, to maintain, to understand, to be responsible to, to introspect, to watchover and to control oneself. It is wholly an extreme act to be different from a wordly view. Not merely custodial but through educational daycare. Until He comes and calls me "My faithful servant".
