One Minute Tip:
Form the habit of accomplishment. With every step you take and every decision you make, bring yourself closer to your goals. Walk through your life with this sense of direction and they will come to you.
Develop self-confidence and esteem. Assert yourself and acquire all the excellent qualities and traits you admire most. What is your ultimate goal? How do you see yourself?
Be specific. Precisely specific. Visualize the place you live in – the rooms, the paintings on the walls, the furniture and swimming pool. Consider the family situation and financial stability. Think about the place you’ll be living in.
Then look at yourself. What clothes are you wearing and what do you look like? Consider your physique, your hair, the condition of your body. Then think about the things you do. What sports do you play, what groups do you belong to?
As if you’ve already accomplished your desires, look back and see what you did to get to where you are. Think about the classes you took, the jobs you worked at, and the places you moved to. Think about the places you’ve travelled to and the friends you’ve made.
Be comfortable with your new self-image. Put it on for size and change your fantasy to adjust perfectly to you. Why don’t you live as though you’re already there? What’s stopping you from becoming the person you are totally capable of becoming?
”One is happy as a result of one’s own efforts, once one
knows the necessary ingredients of happiness – simple tastes,
a certain degree of courage, self-denial to a point, love of
work, and above all, a clear conscience. Happiness is no vague
dream, of that I now feel certain.”
”You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely
suggests that you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual
baby emerging from her at that moment.”
”If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you
have that money can’t buy.”

Understanding Memory Lapses
Most people think that memory lapses are for the hopelessly disorganized. This is because some have systems. For instance, the keys go into the key jar.
The point is, compulsive list makers never come home from the supermarket without the items they intend to buy. Imagine their annoyance when eventually they take three trips between two places before they remember why they went from one place to another anyway!
A lot of us, faced with these glitches, worry that Alzheimer’s is just around the corner. Experts are reassuring us that memory lapses are part of the normal wear and tear that goes along with middle age.
No one is exactly sure why memory goes downhill. It may be that we lose brain cells as we age or the remaining cells do not communicate with one another as effectively. But, the result is well known: mental gaffes cause embarrassment and inconvenience.
For example, Linda, 35, went to her son’s school with a big cake thinking it was Family Day. As it turned out, the schedule of the Family Day is set on the next day. Her son was surprised to see her and overjoyed when she brought out his favorite chocolate cake. Of course, she had to bring the same thing the next day, this time for real.
Interestingly, people tend to blame age, rather the busy nature of their work for their slips.
Take the common lapse of forgetting someone’s name. It happens to everybody, young and old. Names are difficult to handle because they are abstract. The person’s face and his name are not logical ideas for the brain to link together. According to neurologist Barry Gorden, M.D., Ph.D., the older we get, the more data we have to sort through in our brains. Some mental lapses are nothing but congestion.
Also, we blank on names because we know too many of them. Anxiety makes it worse by creating more traffic. That is why the name often pops into our minds later when the mental traffic has died down.
Types Of Memory
Episodic memory is for recalling the name of a restaurant or a movie plot from last week. It starts to decline in our early forties.
Semantic memory is the type that gives us the ability to collect and retain new facts and figures. It holds up pretty well, which is why we know what a blog is but forget your dentist’s address.
Procedural memory is for tasks we do automatically, such as playing the piano or driving a car. This is fairly resilient. So, even if we can’t think of our friend’s phone number, we can press the right keys on the phone’s pad.
Is Memory Lapse An Illness?
Let us manage our stress. Try whatever works for us yoga, gardening, walking, etc. Not only does tension distract you, making it hard to learn and remember things, but it also takes a direct toll on the brain.
Be aware of the reasons for such memory lapses and we will be more understanding and tolerant of our selves.

How to Find Your Dream Work-At-Home Job through Online Fora / Forums
Working in a traditional office may be exciting for some people, especially for those who can avail of flexible time and still earn big bucks from their office jobs. But this is not the case for most people who have had enough of daily commuting, minimum wage rates and the horrible Bundy clock.
Most people I know would give anything so they can work at home and maximize their earning potentials. These people are aware that by working at home, they own their time and have unlimited earning potential.
There are plenty of work-at-home opportunities in the Internet but not all of these are legitimate. Some of these work-at-home opportunities become nightmares after you have sent money for registration or for other purposes.
One way to get into legitimate work-at-home jobs is to join fora on specific work-at-home topics.
Many online moms also join such fora and they can help you in many ways. Moms who already have work-at-home jobs can guide you as to where you can look for work opportunities. They will also give you good advice as to what to look for in a legitimate work-at-home job.
You can also join online forums of online workers; some people who join the forum are very helpful. You can even get contacts from them, especially those who have too much workload on their hands and who want to hire another worker to do the work for them.
If you do not know where to start, you have to visit online forums first because the people there can help you in your quest. They will also be able to give you feedback on some online work-at-home opportunities.
Working at home is a very popular option and there is a prediction that at least two thirds of people in the United States will be taking this option twenty years from now.
This means that there is a great possibility that you will be able to find a friend or a business contact who is also using these fora to meet someone to hire them for work. While the Internet offers a lot of opportunities for online job seekers, it is also a veritable well of scams.
You can avoid work-at-home scams by joining these fora and then ask advice from people who have been there and who may have had experiences with work scams in the Internet.
Some fora even feature a list of work-at-home jobs for you to choose from and help you decide. Some fora pool the job requirements of their members and provide work opportunities for other members who want to go into specific work at home projects.
Why not give it a try? These work-at-home fora allow free sign-ups so you can just talk to the members and get the feel of the business. If you like what you get then you can be a regular member of such forum and who knows, you will be able to find your dream work-at-home job just by keeping in constant touch.
