I HAVE LEARNED THAT SUCCESS IS TO BE MEASURED NOT SO MUCH BY THE POSITION ONE HAS REACHED IN LIFE AS BY THE OBSTACLES HE HAS OVERCOME WHILE TRYING TO SUCCEED. -BOOKER T. WASHINGTON.

To be able to enjoy all the benefits of your strengths, you need to…

  1. Know your area of excellence. 

    It sounds fairly simple right? You may be shocked to learn that many of us never really master our areas or expertise. We underlook these abilities. Each person, as a result of experiences and learning has some area of expertise that make them different from others; What is yours?

  2. Choose the right field

    Don’t go excitedly into a field just because you have heard that people are making it down that road. By now you should be familiar with the saying “choose what you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”. Well, its the simple truth.

  3. Courage is Essential

    Courage is the most important quality you can find, if you want to be happy and self-confident in life. Every thing great takes courage. It is not that people don’t know what to do, it is that they are afraid.

  4. Differentiate yourself

    Each company or service usually has to develope a unique selling proposition right? In the same way you need to make yourself stand-out from the rest. Embrace your unique qualities fully.

Every year, there is a flurry of headlines about the health benefits of wine. But can drinking wine really make a difference? The health benefits come from moderate wine consumption, defined by the American Heart Association as one to two four-ounce glasses a day.

The Benefit: Promotes Longevity

The Evidence: Wine drinkers have a 34 percent lower mortality rate than beer or spirits drinkers. Source: a Finnish study of 2,468 men over a 29-year period, published in the Journals of Gerontology, 2007.

The Benefit: Reduces Heart-Attack Risk

The Evidence: Moderate drinkers suffering from high blood pressure are 30 percent less likely to have a heart attack than nondrinkers. Source: a 16-year Harvard School of Public Health study of 11,711 men, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, 2007.

The Benefit: Lowers Risk of Heart Disease

The Evidence: Red-wine tannins contain procyanidins, which protect against heart disease. Wines from Sardinia and southwest France have more procyanidins than other wines. Source: a study at Queen Mary University in London, published in Nature, 2006.

The Benefit: Reduces Risk of Type 2 Diabetes

The Evidence: Moderate drinkers have 30 percent less risk than nondrinkers of developing type 2 diabetes. Source: research on 369,862 individuals studied over an average of 12 years each, at Amsterdam’s VU University Medical Center, published in Diabetes Care, 2005.

The Benefit: Lowers Risk of Stroke

The Evidence: The possibility of suffering a blood clot–related stroke drops by about 50 percent in people who consume moderate amounts of alcohol. Source: a Columbia University study of 3,176 individuals over an eight-year period, published in Stroke, 2006.

The Benefit: Cuts Risk of Cataracts

The Evidence: Moderate drinkers are 32 percent less likely to get cataracts than nondrinkers; those who consume wine are 43 percent less likely to develop cataracts than those drinking mainly beer. Source: a study of 1,379 individuals in Iceland, published in Nature, 2003.

The Benefit: Cuts Risk of Colon Cancer

The Evidence: Moderate consumption of wine (especially red) cuts the risk of colon cancer by 45 percent. Source: a Stony Brook University study of 2,291 individuals over a four-year period, published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology, 2005.

The Benefit: Slows Brain Decline

The Evidence: Brain function declines at a markedly faster rate in nondrinkers than in moderate drinkers. Source: a Columbia University study of 1,416 people, published in Neuroepidemiology, 2006.

why is it so?

Why is love instead a sign of weakness in our world? 

Why should we laugh or exile someone who comes with the message of love?

Do we understand what it means to love? 

To accept someone completely with all their many many flaws? 

How is that weakness? 

It takes a heart of gold-a solid heart to love purely. 

that is why we are onot trying to be like God. He is the grelatest of all necause he alone is capable of love in its purest form. 

The second best are children. Children love and adore their parents no matter what they do. 

Humanity is weak. 

Humanity is broken. 

That is why love, which is the greatest form of sthrengh is instead considered a weakness. 

I challenge you to love someone today, even with the knowledge that they may never return it. Go ibro the world and show someone some love. It could be as easy as giving them a cup of clean water. 

The world needs your love! 

Let’s go!

What in the world….

This is my favorite expression because people never know what emotion falls behind it. It goes with everything.

What in the world are you thinking?

Did you come this far to give up?

So all those efforts were for nothing?

Oh, so you think giving up is ultimately better?

No, it’s worse because you will forever regret and torture yourself with what ifs.

What in the world is making you think that you can’t get there? Why do you keep killing your own spirit?

I mean what in the worlddddddd?…
