A Full Circle Has anyone ever helped you without any reason? Have you ever felt as if the Universe is doing you a favor because you made one for someone else? If you have never experienced it, your day will surely come! The feeling of being owed by the Universe is something else and yet it humbles you down more than anything else. Experience the power of life as it moves in a full circle in the following story! Once upon a time… There was lady stranded in the middle of the road because her car broke down. She was old and frail and was driving alone. She had known it had been a bad idea since the beginning to take the car all on her own while travelling out of the city. But when she had decided to leave for the trip, she had not foreseen the weather>>>

Thankfully this will not be a problem. 3. Beware the boyfriend who criticizes you in front of others. 4. Zero tolerance for the boyfriend or husband who is physically, mentally or emotionally abusive. 5. Those who gossip to you gossip about you. 6. You will be judged by the company you keep. 7.

Do not ever accept an unsolicited>>>
Paying It Forward Through Crowd Funding Crowd funding can be turned into a symbiotic relationship between the investor, benefactor and the society. Following are the ways in which crowd funding pays forward. 1. Generates a Sense of Ownership in the Society Whenever we pay for a particular agenda, we take up the ownership. For example, if you are crowd funding for some campaign at your local hospital, the people who have participated in it will unconsciously feel responsible for the effective execution of the entire project. You will not only collect money but will manage to get some volunteers for the program. Better workforce means better implementation. 2. Assists those in Need Crowd funding is no longer a money generating technique only. It has now evolved into a social model that lends a hand to those in need. Websites like GoGetFunding, GoFundMe, GiveForward and YouCaring have collected millions in funds>>>
8 Things Children Can Teach Adults As we age, we outgrow the child in us. We become stiff like the weed than the flower that sways in the wind. Gradually, the child in us disappears and then comes the day, we forget to smile. The beauty of the world that once mesmerized us becomes a delusion as if reserved for the next generation to admire. So, do a few strands of grey hair qualify you as a grandma or grandpa? In fact, saying this would be unfair to the grandparents in the world, as they aged they regained their childlike qualities. Come on, who is going to wait this long? You need to find a way to get them back, immediately. The best way is to spend time with a child to observe their every action so you can find your inner child again. So, let children be the teachers>>>
10 Fundamentals about Customer Service You Didn’t Learn in School Customer service is fundamental to the success of any business oriented organization because it is the only thing that can keep your customers coming. Companies should invest heavily in their customer services for efficient service delivery to customers by satisfying them. Most thriving companies today have learnt this secret and have made enough budgets to invest in their customer service by adequate trainings. One of the reasons why companies fold up is their inability to sustain the interest of their customers in this world of competition. The following are the fundamental principles guiding customer service which can only be learnt from experience. Customers will prefer to patronise a company where their needs are attended to promptly and not where their precious time will be wasted. People should be around and available to attend to customers. A good listening ability without>>>
Did you know the average person spends 4 years of his life looking down at his cell phone? Kind of ironic, ain’t it? How these touch-screens can make us lose touch But it’s no wonder in a world filled with IMac’s, iPads and iPhones So many “i”’s, so many selfies, not enough “us”‘s and “we”’s See Technology has made us more selfish and separate than ever Cause while it claims to connect us, connection has gotten no better And let me must express first Mr Zuckerberg, not to be rude but you should re-classify Facebook to what it is: An anti-social network Cause while we may have big friend lists So many of us are friendless, all alone Cause friendships and more broken than the screens on our very phones We sit at home on our computers measuring self worth by numbers of followers and Likes Ignoring those who actually love us It seems we’d rather write an angry post Than talk to someone who might actually hug us Am I bugging? You tell me… I asked a friend the other day lets meet up face to face They said alright, what time you wanna Skype? I responded with omg, srs, and then a bunch of smh’s And realized what about me? Do I not have the patience to have conversation without abbreviation? This is the generation of media over stimulation Chats have been reduced to snaps The news is 140 characters Videos are 6 seconds at high speed And you wonder why ADD is on the rise faster than 4G LTE But, get a load of this Studies show the attention span of the average adult today Is one second lower than that of a gold fish
So if, you’re one of the few people or aquatic animals that have yet to click off or close this video, congratulations Let me finish by saying you do have a choice, yes But this one my friends we cannot Auto-Correct – we must do it ourselves Take control or be controlled, Make a decision Me? No longer do I want to spoil a precious moment by recording it with a phone I’m just gonna keep them I don’t wanna take a picture of all my meals anymore – I ‘m just gonna eat them I don’t want the new app, the new software, or the new update And If I wanna post an old photo of myself who says I have to wait until Thursday I’m so tired of performing in the pageantry of vanity And conforming to this accepted form of digital insanity Call me crazy but, I imagine a world where we smile when we have low batteries Cause that will mean we’ll be one bar closer – to humanity

Be humble, love and respect those around you John worked at a meat processing and distribution factory. One day, when he finished his work schedule, he went to the cold room (freezer) to inspect something but in a moment of bad luck, the door closed and he was locked inside with no help in sight. Although he screamed and knocked with all his might, his cries went unheard as no one could hear him. Most of the workers had already gone, and outside the cold room it’s impossible to hear what was going on inside. A few hours later, whilst John was on the verge of death, the security guard of the factory eventually opened the door and saved him. John thanked the security guard and asked him what he came to do there as it wasn’t a part of his work routine. The security guard replied: “I’ve been working>>>
