Luck in Dating

If you have entered casinos before, you will realize that most gamblers like to stick to fellow gamblers who are very lucky. They will also tend to aggregate at those tables where there are a lot of people so as to boost each other’s luck. This strategy applies to love luck as well! For singles, you can consider mixing around more with friends who are attached. Seeing them being happy with their partners will certainly motivate you to find a partner yourself! In addition, go to places with more people. The more people you meet, the higher your chances of being lucky in love!

Verse on nature

Gie me ae spark o’ Nature’s fire
That’s a’ the learning I desire;
Then, tho’ I trudge thro’ dub an’ mire
At pleugh or cart,
My muse, tho’ hamely in attire
May touch the heart

Sexual Compatibility

A truly sexually compatible partner is hard to find. A woman with the right body and the right moves can fill your fantasies for years. So if you run across one of the good ones, consider hanging on for dear life... because no matter what else goes wrong, at least you'll be getting good fun constantly. And that's very valuable.
Love Clinic

Professionalism Succeeds

It is performing a task in a methodical fashion, with conviction, dedication and passion to achieve better results each time. Its tough, it calls for a lot of commitment, but its certainly not impossible. Infact each one of us can be professional in our approach to work.

Intelligence + Talent + Ability + Professionalism = Achievements
Mere intelligence, talent or ability isn’t enough to achieve something. The dash of professionalism needs to be present too and practiced.

Love at First Sight Poem

Are you the first drop of sunshine or a warm breeze on a winter night,

Are you the reflection of Aphrodite or the illusion of a man's dream,

Are you the brightest star of the universe

Or the reason for its existence,

Are you the quintessence of wealth or is mankind poor without you,

Are you the only wish of the living or the last hope of dying,

Are you the essence of a true life or is life purposeless without you,

Are you the prayer of the plagued ones

Or the medicine for the one in love,

Are you in the sparkle in man's eyes or the mirage of his sight,

Are you the music of the composer's heart

Or the only sonnet of a poet,

Are you the color of a tulip field or the pale softness of the moonlight,

Are you the vision of the blind ones or are we blind without you,

Are you the thirst of the desert sand or the first rain drop,

Are you love in its purest form or is love pure because of you,

Are you the echo of heavenly love or is love made heavenly by you,

Are you nature gazing from its own eyes

Or are you my love at first sight

Cyrus Hiramanek

Anthony Robbins Inspirational Thought

People’s lives are a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group.… Your life experience will never far exceed the expectations of your peers, because to stay connected to them there is an unconscious contract that says we’re going to be within this range of each other. Now, on the other hand, if for some reason your friends have a higher expectation for life than you do, just to stay on the team you’ve got to raise your standard. And that's the beauty of life.

Teachers guide to conducting meetings at school

Ours is a democratic set up where constant interaction with people is necessary. School meetings for teachers is necessary. The management, teachers and parents are all part of the educational framework and obviously, at some point of time teachers would be interfacing with them over some issue or the other. As such a teacher must be equipped to set the agenda, prepare, conduct and file minutes of meetings, whenever called upon.

Preparing for the meeting
Nothing in this world has ever been achieved without careful preparation. The purpose of the meeting should be outlined, and the agenda set. The purpose, date and time should be put down on a notice, to be sent to parents, fellow teachers or the student body. The venue, capacity of the hall and facilities available must be checked. Tea or snacks required should be ordered well in advance. Sufficient time should be given and, if possible, all invitees must be spoken to and participation confirmed, lest you be facing empty chairs on the day of the meeting. Notes, minutes of the previous meeting, report cards or other material should be at hand during the meeting.

After opening the meeting, you should briefly read the minutes of the last meeting, and later set the agenda for the current one. This done you should invite the chairman to take over the proceedings. All important resolutions, policy decisions and financial implications must be recorded and verified in the end. Every subject taken up for discussion must be forwarded by someone and seconded by another, before being debated and discussed at the meeting.

If voting needs to be undertaken, it can be done in three ways:
1. Standing voting, where members stand up for yeses and nos and be counted.
2. Recorded voting, where each member’s consent or dissent is noted individually.
3. Secret ballot, where voting slips are supplied and members drop them into a ballot box.

Recording the minutes
Either you or a deputy should record key aspects of the meeting. Apart from the date, place, time, purpose and names of the presiding offices and the panel, all subjects discussed and resolutions passed should be recorded. At the end of the meeting it should be read out and confirmed once again. At the end of the meeting, you should briefly cover subjects discussed and agreements made, thank all members for co-operating before closing the meeting.

1. There will always be dissenting voices at every meeting.
2. Be tactful in handling an explosive situation.
3. Give chance to everyone who has an opinion, whenever possible.
4. Be diplomatic in cutting short talkative members.
5. Keep it short and lively to sustain member’s interests.

Parents should teach kids to think

Most parents attempt to teach their children what to think, instead of how to think. Do this, don’t do that, this is good for you or that is not good for your health. Without realizing it we unconsciously pass on our belief patterns to our children.

As parents we are temporary caretakers of our children and it is our job to help them, to eventually stand on their own feet. To not only survive, but to grow and succeed in this fast changing world. To do this, we need to teach our kids how to think, how to weigh alternatives & make decisions after realizing the consequences. We need to develop in them a sense of self- responsibility for their actions and decisions and the consequences.

Robert Kiyosaki Quotations

Money is kind of a base subject. Like water, food, air and housing, it affects everything yet for some reason the world of academics thinks it's a subject below their social standing.

Do today what you want for your tomorrows

It is not how much you make that counts but how much money you keep.

The only difference between a rich person and poor person is how they use their time.

Your future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow.

The most life-destroying word of all is the word tomorrow.

Education is the foundation of success. Just as scholastic skills are vitally important, so are financial skills and communication skills.

The size of your success is measured by the strength of your desire; the size of your dream; and how you handle disappointment along the way.

Robert Kiyosaki

First Love Poem

Waking, with a dream of first love forming real words,

as close to my lips as lipstick, I speak your name,

after a silence of years, into the pillow, and the power

of your name brings me here to the window, naked,

to say it again to a garden shaking with light.

This was a child's love, and yet I clench my eyes

till the pictures return, unfocused at first, then

almost clear, an old film played at a slow speed.

All day I will glimpse it, in windows of changing sky,

in mirrors, my lover's eyes, wherever you are.

And later a star, long dead, here, seems precisely

the size of a tear. Tonight, a love-letter out of a dream

stammers itself in my heart. Such faithfulness.

You smile in my head on the last evening. Unseen

flowers suddenly pierce and sweeten the air.

I certainly feel much better
And I hope that you do, too!

Motivational Sayings from Steve Jobs

You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love.

And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.

There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer

How to Handle Your Teenager Better?

Teens is a very turbulent phase, a period of stress, intense feeling and endless doubts. But with a little understanding you can foster a wonderful relationship with your teen son or daughter.

Your child could turen rebellious, non-conformist or get into a shell. The child is undergoing physical and psychological changes, much of which he can't comprehend. Its at these times that parents must be patient, helpful, understanding emphathetic and friendly.

Don't criticize all the time
Parents, generally think they 'know it all'. They seem to be perfectionists, often forgetting their own teens. "Don't be silly". "That not the way to do it. Its highly unbecoming of you". One hardly realizes the damage being done to a teen's psychology. The "I know better" policy isn't always right. Give you child the chance to grow up, with all his faults. He'll overcome them soon, with the confidence you place in him. Accept him with all his 'pimples.' He'll make you proud one day. Don't be judgemental about everything, warn psychologists.

Respect his privacy
Suddenly when your daughter moves into her teens, she'll demand a cupboard, table, bed and even a bedroom for herself. She's just behaving like a normal adolescent. Many children complain about parents eavesdropping on their calls, checking out their hangouts, tapping phone calls, prying on their room in their absence or reading their diary. All this is a violation of your child's privacy. And you must respect it. Breach of trust only leads to widening gap between the two.

Treat them well in the presence of their friends
Anything negative you say tends to hurt your child's self-esteem, more so when his friends are around. How often do you hear a parent say 'Let your friends come I'll tell them what a lazy fellow you are'. It's a great embarassment which lowers his/ her prestige in the eyes of his/ her peers. The intention to correct him is right, but this approach is loaded with failure driving him do just the opposite.

Smoking, drinking and drugs
Parents of teenagers don't sleep well. Fears of all kind haunt them. Many parents feel strongly about smoking and drinking and drugs. Adolescents smoke, drink and puff cocaine because it symbolizes escape, freedom, defying authority and signifying transition to adulthood.
Don't bring the roof down if he comes home drunk. Take it easy. Don't sermonize. Help him keep to his limits. Encourage him to inform you when and with whom he's going for a drink. And when he he'll be home. Ask him to avoid driving, if he isn't steady.

On handling teenagers...
When someone tells you that your son was seen smoking by the canteen, do you?
a. Call up his pals to enquire.
b. Invade his bedroom looking for evidence.
c. Discuss with him as a friend.

When your daughter is on the phone for sometime do you?
a. Eavesdrop to investigate what she's upto
b. Ask her mater of factly "who's that dear."
c. Tell her she's been too long on the phone and she better put it down.

Do you...
a. Keep in touch with his friends
b. Prefer you son meeting them outside
c. Ask your son to keep indoors.

Have you ever discussed the pangs of growing up?
a. No
b. Yes
c. Why should I?

How do you handle his negative traits?
a. Criticise
b. Complain to his dad
c. Build his self-esteem step by step
Answers are...

Mahatma Gandhi Positive Quotes

I have never lost my optimism. In seemingly darkest hours hope has burnt bright within me. I
cannot kill the hope myself. I must say I cannot give an ocular demonstration to justify the hope. But there is no defeat in me.

I know the path. It is straight and narrow. It is like the edge of a sword. I rejoice to walk on it. I weep when I slip. God's word is: 'He who strives never perishes.' I have implicit faith in that promise. Though, therefore, from my weakness I fail a thousand times, I will not lose faith, but hope that I shall see the Light when the flesh has been brought under perfect subjection, as some day it must.

WHAT…is Truth? A difficult question; but I have solved it for myself by saying that it is what the voice within tells you. How then, you ask, [do] different people think of different and contrary truths? Well, seeing that the human mind works through innumerable media and that the evolution of the human mind is not the same for all, it follows that what may be truth for one may be untruth for another, and hence those who have made these experiments have come to the conclusion that there are certain conditions to be observed in making those experiments…

If we turn our eyes to the time of which history has any record down to our own time, we shall find that man has been steadily progressing towards ahimsa. Our remote ancestors were cannibals. Then came a time when they were fed up with cannibalism and they began to live on
chase. Next came a stage when man was ashamed of leading the life of a wandering hunter. He
therefore took to agriculture and depended principally on mother earth for his food. Thus from being a nomad he settled down to civilized stable life, founded villages and towns, and from member of a family he became member of a community and a nation. All these are signs of progressive ahimsa and diminishing Himsa. Had it been otherwise, the human species should have been extinct by now, even as many of the lower species have disappeared.

Prophets and avatars have also taught the lesson of ahimsa more or less. Not one of them has
professed to teach Himsa. And how should it be otherwise? Himsa does not need to be taught.

Man as animal is violent, but as Spirit is nonviolent. The moment he awakes to the Spirit within, he cannot remain violent. Either he progresses towards ahimsa or rushes to his doom.

That is why the prophets and avatars have taught the lessons of truth, harmony, brotherhood,
justice, etc. – all attributes of ahimsa.

The world is weary of hate. We see the fatigue overcoming the Western nations. We see that this song of hate has not benefited humanity. Let it be the privilege of India to turn a new leaf and set a lesson to the world.

Romantic Verse for Lover

Feel Safe with You

Safety Net

You are my safety net.

When I fall

Your arms

Like thick protective ropes

Catch and envelope me

Before sending me



And next month

When you leave

For good

I will have to learn

To never fall…

Or to land well.

Not walking

The treacherous

Tight rope

That is Life

Is not an option.

Perhaps I can

Wear big skirts

That billow out

Like a parachute

When I fall.

Then the trick

Is to kick and

Coax the air

To propel me

Love and Relationship Advice

In a relationship, one mind revises another; one heart changes its partner. This astounding legacy of our combined status as mammals and neural beings is limbic revision: the power to remodel the emotional parts of the people we love, as our Attractors activate certain limbic pathways, and the brain's inexorable memory mechanism reinforces them. Who we are and who we become depends, in part, on whom we love.

Thomas Lewis, M.D., Fari Amini, M.D., Richard Lannon, M.D., A General Theory of Love

Motivational Buddha Quotes

If a man who enjoys a lesser happiness beholds a greater one, let him leave aside the lesser to gain the greater. Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense. Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine. All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him. Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule. I never see what has been done; I only see what remains to be done.

Motivational Action Saying

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.
Norman Vincent Peale
