1. Be Consistent
How do you describe your success? Gaining top position in your office? Having 10K salary per month? Having more time for your dearest? Living fullest and do whatever you want to? Getting a financial freedom and no-more money worries? Success comes in all different shapes and sizes to almost everyone with one common dominator. It takes lots of work to reach it.
Regardless how you describe the success is, there are many ways to outreach your goal.
We put only 10 tips that everyone can use to reach their goal. These tips are ways to
better you as a person, a proven ways to reach your goal and success
1. Dare to dream and dream BIG
To success you must have dreams, inspirations, a goal that you set high up beyond
your reach and have desire to reach it. You will love every single effort you exert on
the way to make it happen.
Your life and success is in your hands, to make of it what you choose. So while you
can choose and dream - dream it BIG. All successful men are big dreamers. They
imagine what their future life could be, and they work every day towards their distant
vision, goal or purpose. Let others lead small dreams, but not YOU.
2. Never Give Up
Your success is a process. To reach it you must persevere. It like a journey you take -
never give up, don't stop. You would never know if your success is another one more
step and only one-step to make it happen. If you give up, you'd never know.
3. Be Happy
Success always steps side by side and walks together with happiness. Learn to enjoy
every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside yourself
to make you happy.
A positive mind and happy, upbeat attitude will help you succeed. A person living in
a happy state generally gets much more in just everything they do. Bad attitude pulls
you down and won't help you meet your goal.
4. Have Courage
Have the courage to stand up for what your dream and have strong desire to do it. It's
easy to dream - but if you don't have the courage to make it real you'll be just
another dreamers.
If you don't fight to reach your dream now - ten years from now you'll be more
disappointed by the thing that you did not do than by the one you did do. So have
courage and just do it.

People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do
things. When you believe and motivate yourself - you have the first secret of success.
To keep you stay motivated, find inspiring and motivational tapes, seminars, ebooks,
books or any means you could get your hands on, and turn to these motivational tools
to help you keep on track.
6. Be Passionate
You need to have passion. It's much more easier do thing you have interest in and
having passion for what you are doing will make you put more efforts into it.

Failure doesn't mean the end of your dream. Your success depends on how your treat
your failure. You must do the thing that you think you can't do. You will gain
strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look
fear in the face.
8. Patience
Success takes time. If your dream is BIG and takes all your efforts to achieve, it 's
worth your time and patience to be in the moment you'd say, "Eureka"
9. Be Thankful
No matter how small your accomplishments you made, be thankful and appreciate
yourself. Not only this will keep you in motivated but will also help you stay humble

emotionally. Without taking proper care, you will end up struggling in all aspect of
your life.

11 Ways to Show Thanksgiving to GOD

One of the great commandments is to give thanksgiving to God, for all He has done for us. In Psalms 100:4 we are taught to, "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name." Christ, himself, was the perfect example of obeying this commandment. Here is a list of 11 ways in which we can show thanksgiving to God.

1. Remember Him

The first way to show true thanksgiving to God is to always remember Him. Remembering Him means that He is a part of our thoughts, words, and deeds. It is impossible to give gratitude to God if we never think or speak of Him. When we remember Him we are choosing to think, speak, and act as He would have us do. We can also memorize scriptures and quotes on gratitude to help us remember to give thankgiving to God.

2. Recognize His Hand

To give thanksgiving unto God we must recognize His hand in our lives. What blessings has he given to you? A great idea is to get out a piece of paper (or open a new document) and number your blessings one by one. As you count your blessings be specific. Name individual family members and friends. Think of your life, health, home, city, and country. Ask yourself what, exactly, about your home or country is a blessing? How about your skills, talents, education, and job? Think about those times that seemed like a coincidence, did you overlook God's hand in your life? Did you think of God's greatest gift, His Son, Jesus Christ? You will be amazed at how many blessings you truly have. Now you can show thanksgiving to God for them.

3. Give Thanksgiving in Prayer

One way of showing our thanksgiving to God is through prayer. Elder Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said it most eloquently:
"Prayer is an essential part of conveying appreciation to our Heavenly Father. He awaits our expressions of gratefulness each morning and night in sincere, simple prayer from our hearts for our many blessings, gifts, and talents.

"Through expression of prayerful gratitude and thanksgiving, we show our dependence upon a higher source of wisdom and knowledge.... We are taught to 'live in thanksgiving daily.' (Alma 34:38) ("Gratitude for the Goodness of God," Ensign, May 1992, 63).
Even if you've never prayed before, you can learn how to pray. All are invited to give thanksgiving to God in prayer.

4. Keep a Gratitude Journal

An excellent way to show thanksgiving to God is by keeping a gratitude journal. A gratitude journal is more than just a list of your blessings, but a way to record what God has done for you on a daily basis. In General Conference Henry B. Eyring talked about keeping just such a record:
"As I would cast my mind over the day, I would see evidence of what God had done for one of us that I had not recognized in the busy moments of the day. As that happened, and it happened often, I realized that trying to remember had allowed God to show me what He had done." ("O Remember, Remember," Ensign, Nov 2007, 66–69).
I have been keeping my own gratitude journal. It has been a wonderful blessing and has helped me to show thanksgiving to God!

5. Repent of Sins

Repentance alone is an amazing blessing for which we should give thanksgiving to God, yet it is one of the most powerful ways in which we can show unto Him our gratitude. Elder Hales also taught this principle:
"Gratitude is also the foundation upon which repentance is built.

"The Atonement brought mercy through repentance to balance justice.... Repentance is essential to salvation. We are mortal—we are not perfect—we will make mistakes. When we make mistakes and do not repent, we suffer."
Not only does repentance cleanse us of our sins but it makes us worthy to receive additional blessings, which the Lord is eager to bestow upon us. Following the steps of repentance truly is a simple, yet powerful, way to give thanksgiving to God.

6. Obey His Commandments

Our Heavenly Father gave us everything we have. He gave us our lives, to live here on earth, and the only thing he asks of us is to obey his commandments. King Benjamin, from The Book of Mormon, spoke to his people about our need to keep God's commandments:
"I say unto you that if ye should serve him who has created you from the beginning...if ye should serve him with all your whole souls yet ye would be unprofitable servants.

"And behold, all that he requires of you is to keep his commandments; and he has promised you that if ye would keep his commandments ye should prosper in the land; and he never doth vary from that which he hath said; therefore, if ye do keep his commandments he doth bless you and prosper you" (Mosiah 2:21-22).

7. Serve Others

I believe that one of the most profound ways in which we can truly give thanksgiving to God is through serving him by serving others. He told us that, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me" (Matt 25:40). Thus, we know that to give thanksgiving to God we can serve Him, and to serve Him all we need to do is serve others. It's so simple. All it takes is a little planning and personal sacrifice and even then many opportunities to serve our fellowmen will arise when the Lord knows we are willing and seeking to serve each other.

8. Express Gratitude to Others

When others help or serve us they, in turn, are serving God. In a way, when we express our gratitude to those who serve us we are truly showing thanksgiving to God. We can easily acknowledge the service of others by saying "thank you", sending a card or quick email, or with just a nod of the head, a smile, or a wave of the hand. It doesn't take much effort to say thank you and the more we do the easier it will be.

9. Have an Attitude of Gratitude

The Lord created us to be happy. In the Book of Mormon there is a scripture that clearly states this: "Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy" (2 Nephi 2:25). When we choose to have a positive attitude and to live our lives in joy we are showing our thanksgiving to God. We are showing to Him that we are grateful for our very life which he's given to us. When we are negative we are not.
"If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues" (Thomas S. Monson, "An Attitude of Gratitude," Ensign, May 1992, 54).
We can choose to have an attitude of gratitude, just as we can choose to have a bad attitude. Which do you think God would have us choose?

10. Choose to be Humble

Humility begets gratitude while pride begets ingratitude. In the parable of the pharisee and the publican (Luke 18:9-14) Jesus Christ taught what happens to those who are lifted up in pride and those who are humble. He said, "For every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted" (Luke 18:14). In the face of adversity we must make a choice. We can react to our afflictions by becoming humble and thankful, or we can become angry and bitter. As we choose to be humble we are showing thanksgiving to God. We are showing to Him that we have faith in Him, that we trust Him. We may not know God's plan for us, but as we humble ourselves, especially in adversity, we are submitting ourselves to His will.

11. Make a New Goal

An excellent way to show thanksgiving to God is by making and keeping a new goal. It can either be a goal to stop a bad habit or a goal to create a new good one. The Lord doesn't expect us to change instantly, but he does expect us to work toward change. The only way to truly change ourselves for the better is to make and keep goals. There are many excellent goal tracking tools and ideas available on the Internet, so you should be able to find one that will work for you. Remember, when making a new goal you are in fact making a decision to do (or not do) something and as Yoda said to Luke Skywalker, "Do or do not. There is no try" ("Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back"). You can do it. Believe in yourself, because God believes in you!

Sex education: Talking to toddlers and preschoolers about sex

Sex education often begins with a child's curiosity about his or her body. Here's how to set the stage for sex education — and how to answer your child's questions.

By Mayo Clinic staff

Sex education is a topic many parents would prefer to avoid. And if you have a young child, you might think you're off the hook — at least for a while. But that's not necessarily true. Sex education can begin anytime. Let your child set the pace with his or her questions.

Early exploration

As children learn to walk and talk, they also begin to learn about their bodies. Open the door to sex education by teaching your child the proper names for his or her sex organs, perhaps during bath time. If your child points to a body part, simply tell him or her what it is. This is also a good time to talk about which parts of the body are private.
When your child asks questions about his or her body — or yours — don't giggle, laugh or get embarrassed. Take the questions at face value. Offer direct, age-appropriate responses. If your child wants to know more, he or she will ask.

Expect self-stimulation

Many toddlers express their natural sexual curiosity through self-stimulation. Boys may pull at their penises, and girls may rub their external genitalia. Teach your child that masturbation is a normal — but private — activity. If your child starts masturbating in public, try to distract him or her. If that fails, take your child aside for a reminder about the importance of privacy.
Sometimes, frequent masturbation can indicate a problem in a child's life. Perhaps he or she feels anxious or isn't receiving enough attention at home. It can even be a sign of sexual abuse. Teach your child that no one is allowed to touch the private parts of his or her body without permission. If you're concerned about your child's behavior, consult his or her doctor. 

Curiosity about others

By age 3 or 4, children often realize that boys and girls have different genitals. As natural curiosity kicks in, you may find your child playing "doctor" or examining another child's sex organs. Such exploration is far removed from adult sexual activity, and it's harmless when only young children are involved. As a family matter, however, you may want to set limits on such exploration.

Everyday moments are key

Sex education isn't a single tell-all discussion. Instead, take advantage of everyday opportunities to discuss sex. If there's a pregnancy in the family, for example, tell your child that babies grow in a special place inside the mother. If your child wants more details on how the baby got there or how the baby will be born, offer them.
Consider these examples:
  • How do babies get inside a mommy's tummy? You might say, "A mom and a dad make a baby by holding each other in a special way."
  • How are babies born? For some kids, it might be enough to say, "Doctors and nurses help babies who are ready to be born." If your child wants more details, you might say, "Usually a mom pushes the baby out of her vagina."
  • Why doesn't everyone have a penis? Try a simple explanation, such as, "Boys and girls bodies are made differently."
  • Why do you have hair down there? Simplicity often works here, too. You might say, "Our bodies change as we get older." If your child wants more details, add, "Boys grow hair near their penises, and girls grow hair near their vaginas."
As your child matures and asks more detailed questions, you can provide more detailed responses. Answer specific questions using correct terminology. Even if you're uncomfortable, forge ahead. Remember, you're setting the stage for open, honest discussions in the years to come.


I gaze into twin pools of warmth
Bright and sparkling
I see something indescribable
Something I can't quite put my finger on.

Twin pool, blazing and brilliant
Making all your sweetness
And all your compassion
Crystal clear.

Twin pools shimmering and glimmering
Showing how you're
Sweet, sensitive, caring and kind
Funny athletic cunning and friendly

Twin pools, so animated and intense
Help me to share
Your love of life,
Your life of love.

I gaze into twin pools of warmth and
I see the sweetest person I've ever met or ever will meet
I recognize a sincere and honest guy who can never be replaced
I realize you are so special because
When I look into your eyes
I witness a miracle, I find a friend.

because you loved me :)

For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right

For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful, baby

You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through
Through it all

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me, ooh, baby

You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach

You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love, I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me

Maybe, I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because
I was loved by you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me, the tender wind that carried me
The light in the dark shining your love into my life
You've been my inspiration through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

I'm everything I am
Because you loved me
This is a real story of a young college girl who passed away last month
In (LEYTE) Philippines . Her name was gloria. She was hit by a truck.

She was working in a call center. She had a boy friend named jonathan.
Both of them are true lovers. They always used to talk on the phone.
You can never see her without her cell phone. In fact she also changed her SIM card from Smart to Globe, so both of them can be on the same network, and save on the cost.

She used spends half of the day talking with jonathan. gloria 's family knew about their relationship. jonathan
is still very close with gloria 's family. (just imagine their love) . Before she passed away she always told her friends. 'If I pass away please burn me with my cellphone' she also said the same thing to her

After her death, people couldnt carry her body,
A lot of them tried to do so but still couldn' t.Everybody had tried to carry the body, the result was still the same.They jus could not lift the body. Eventually, they called a person who knew one of their neighbours, who could speak with the soul of dead person, who is a friend of her father.

He took a stick and started speaking to himself slowly.

After a few minutes, he said 'this girl misses something here.' Then her
friends told that person about her intentions to burn her with her phone.
He then opened the grave box and place her phone and sim card inside the
casket. After that they tried to carry the body. It could be moved and
they carried it into the van easily.

All of us were shocked. gloria 's parents did not inform jonathan that
gloria had passed away.

After 2 weeks jonathan called gloria 's mom.....

jonathan :....'Aunty, I'm coming home today. Cook something nice for me.
Don't tell gloria that I'm coming home today, I wanna surprise her.'
Her mother replied..... 'You come home first, I wanna tell you
something very important.'

After he came, they told him the truth about gloria.
jonathan though that they were playing the fool. He was laughing and
said 'don't try to fool me - tell gloria to come out, i have a gift for
her. Please stop
this nonsense'.

Then they show him the original death certificate to him.
They gave him proof to make him believe. (jonathan started to sweat) He
said... 'Its not true. We spoke yesterday. She still calls me.
jonathan was shaking..

Suddenly, jonathan 's phone rang. 'see this is from gloria, see this.....'
he showed the phone to gloria 's family. all of them told him to
answer. he talked using the loudspeaker mode.

All of them heard his conversation.

Loud and clear, no cross lines, no humming.

It is the actual voice of gloria & there is no way others could use her
sim card since it is nailed inside the grave box. They were so shocked and asked
for the same person's (who can speak with the soul of deal persons) help
again. He brought his master to solve this matter.

He & his master worked for 5 hours.

Then they discovered one thing which really shocked
Globe has the best coverage.
