Preparation to self-improvement: The 10 questions you should ask to yourself

The 10 questions you should ask to yourself

1. What do I really want?
The question of the ages. So many things you want to do with your life and so little time to even go about during the day.

Find something that you are good at can help realize that small step towards improvement. Diligence is the key to know that it is worth it.

2. Should I really change?
Today's generation has taken another level of redefining 'self', or at least that's what the kids now days are saying. Having an army of nieces and nephews has taught me that there are far worse things that they could have had than acne or maybe even promiscuity. So how does that fit into your lifestyle?

If history has taught us one thing, it's the life that we have gone through. Try to see if partying 70's style wouldn't appeal to the younger generation, but dancing is part of partying. Watch them applaud after showing them how to really dance than break their bones in break-dancing.

3. What's the bright side in all of this?
With so much is happening around us there seem to be no room for even considering that light at the end of the tunnel. We can still see it as something positive without undergoing so much scrutiny. And if it's a train at the end of the tunnel, take it for a ride and see what makes the world go round!

4. Am I comfortable with what I'm doing?
There's always the easy way and the right way when it comes to deciding what goes with which shoes, or purse, shirt and whatnot. It doesn't take a genius to see yourself as someone unique, or else we'll all be equally the same in everything we do. Variety brings in very interesting and exciting questions to be experimented.

5. Have I done enough for myself?
Have you, or is there something more you want to do? Discontentment in every aspect can be dangerous in large doses, but in small amounts you'll be able to see and do stuff you could never imagine doing.

6. Am I happy at where I am today?
It's an unfair question so let it be an answer! You love being a good and loving mom or dad to your kids, then take it up a notch! Your kids will love you forever. The same goes with everyday life!

7. Am I appealing to the opposite sex?
So maybe I don't have an answer to that, but that doesn't mean I can't try it, though. Whether you shape-up, change the way you wear your clothes or hair, or even your attitude towards people, you should always remember it will always be for your own benefit.

8. How much could I have?
I suppose in this case there is no such things on having things too much or too little, but it's more on how badly you really need it. I'd like to have lots of money, no denying that, but the question is that how much are you willing to work for it?

9. What motivates me?
What motivates you? It's an answer you have to find out for yourself. There are so many things that can make everyone happy, but to choose one of the things maybe the hardest part. It's not like you can't have one serving of your favorite food in a buffet and that's it. Just try it piece by piece.

10. What Really Makes You Tick?
So? What really makes you tick? You can be just about anything you always wanted to be, but to realize that attaining something that may seem very difficult is already giving up before you even start that journey.

Always remember, that self-improvement is not just about the physical or philosophical change you have to undergo, but it's something that you really want.

Do you know all the traits in Sims Social Facebook game?

Do you know all the traits in Sims Social Facebook game?
Sims Social is the hottest Facebook game around these days even getting past Farmville. But the real fun from Sims Social comes from the various traits that you acquire for your online personality or Sim. Traits, in Sims Social, are different from the personality you choose. Traits highlight your individual style.
There are a total of nine traits available in the game and you could choose six of those for your Sim. For the beginning player there is only one slot for a trait. But none of the traits come for free. The cost of the traits in lifetime points vary. So, you have to earn lifetime points first. You could earn these ‘precious’ lifetime points by completing a mission, improving skill levels or improving your relationship level with other Sims out there.
Another interesting feature of the traits is that each has specific availability of upgrade levels. You also unlock some special new items at each new level you reach. Check out these traits and see if you have obtained your favorite six.
Great Kisser – Surely this is the most popular and sought-after trait in Sims Social. It promises great success in your online life in Sims Social and puts you behind by 150 lifetime points.
Insane – A unique trait, being ‘insane’ on Sims Social makes you downright silly but lot of fun all the time. You’re never the dull one to have around. Yet, it cuts back on social interaction so you could get along with having a few neighbors. You have to play 75 lifetime points to purchase this trait.
Ninja – You buy this trait for 150 lifetime points to turbocharge your online life in Sims Social. You can teleport yourself, move around with great speed and well, kind of be everywhere all the time!
Ogre – Want to make enemies instead of friends? Pick the Ogre trait. It will keep the best and the worst of people away from you. This trait allows your Sim to burp and fart. The other interesting feature of this trait is that you consume less energy cleaning up. The Ogre trait can be purchased for 100 lifetime points.
Slob: This is a completely messy trait that lets your Sim live in filth. Actually. Use 75 lifetime points to buy this trait and enjoy its various levels.
Steel Bladder – is available for 50 lifetime points and you don’t have to go to the washroom too quickly.
Neat: As the name implies, are finicky about neatness. Available for 100 lifetime points.
Super Mechanic – As evident by the name, could make anything out of junk. Quite a talented trait to process that could get you many friends. This trait is got for 50 lifetime points.
Night Owl – Needs very little sleep and comes for 50 lifetime points. This is one of those creative kind of traits that keeps you inspired for way longer than other traits. This is the perfect trait if you want to get down to honing special skills, abilities etc. http://tinyurl.com/simssoc

The Truth Behind the Mafia Wars Blueprint

The Mafia Wars Blueprint, the newest in a long line of recent game guide releases for Mafia Wars made its way to my desktop over the weekend and after giving it a read, I wanted to share my thoughts with everyone about how the newest in the current batch of game guides for the world's fastest growing social game turned out.

The Basics

The guide, very much like the other Mafia Wars guides, claims that it can help you learn how to be the better of the many, many mafia bosses out there. However, unlike a lot of those other guides, it doesn't waste time with very few details and a whole lot of common sense. There are some actually useful tips in this guide and that makes it a very appealing purchase for anyone who has ever spent more than 20 minutes trying to figure out what they were doing in Mafia Wars while their friends battered them senseless.

So, the early test was a positive one. But, how did the guide hold up upon further inspection? To my honest surprise, very well.

This guide is clearly written by someone who has spent a great deal of time mastering the art of building a mafia and dominating their opponents (something I am just becoming familiar with). They know exactly how to build a mafia family (and fast), and how to turn that family into the vehicle necessary to take down anyone that stands their way.

I've seen a lot of people make a lot of claims thus far with this game and to tell you the truth, they usually fall short, but Mafia Wars Blueprint really delivers.

The guide is about twice as long as the other ones on the market, is far more detailed in telling you exactly what you're supposed to be doing, and is updated regularly for anyone worried that they'll fall behind when Moscow hits the game.

So, if you're looking for a Mafia Wars guide, this should be the first (and last) one you check out. For what it promises, nothing else does better.  http://tinyurl.com/testgamer11

Can You Really Build Your Own Small Boat?

Can You Really Build Your Own Small Boat?
You would love to have a small boat of your own, but even a small boat can be expensive. Have you considered making your own? If you are willing to do the work yourself, you can not only save money, but rest assure knowing exactly how the boat was made. Many people are concerned that building a boat is much too hard to master or that it will take up too much time. If you start small, however, you may find those fears allayed.
If you want to achieve your most desired results, you must realize that one of the most important decisions you will make will be the consideration of materials. If you want to end up with a high-quality boat, you have to start with the same fine materials you would use in the construction of a full-sized boat.
For best results, find a guide that will walk you through each necessary step to build a small boat when you are ready to plan. A great place to find boat guides is—where else?—the Internet. From free plans to downloadable libraries, you’re almost sure to find the right boat plan for you. You must also realize that a project such as this will take up a large amount of time. Don’t think that you’ll be able to finish it in one week unless it is a model boat! Determining if you will have enough free time to work on your boat before you begin is essential.
Choosing which construction method to use is also crucial. If you are a novice, plywood boat-building methods such as stitch-and-glue may be best to start with. If you are looking for more of a challenge, a conventional wooden plank model may be just the thing. From there, you will need to choose which type of craft to apply the construction method to and the waters the boat will be used on.
For example, a Jon boat makes a good fishing vessel. If you would like a boat less than 10 feet in size that you will use in calm waters near the shoreline, a dinghy may be just the right boat for you. As a bonus, once you have mastered building small boats, you will be able to use your knowledge to larger boats. In time, your small boat may grow into a large hobby to enjoy for years to come. http://tinyurl.com/dboatplan

10 Tips for a Successful Entrepreneurial Pitch

One of the hardest presentations to make is the entrepreneurial pitch. You have a great idea for a business and you want someone to give you money to make it happen. The problem is that venture capitalists, angel investors, and even rich uncles are heavily predisposed against you. Why? Because 99% of the pitches they hear sound like sure-fire prescriptions to lose money!

If you are pitching investors to give you money for a new venture, you should subscribe to the following rules:

1. Explain exactly what your business is within the first thirty seconds. Many entrepreneurs waste valuable time giving loads of data, background and other info—all the while investors are left scratching their heads thinking “What does this business actually DO?”

2. Tell your audience who your customers will be. Paint a vivid, specific picture of these people.

3.  Explain why your customers going to give you there hard-earned money.

4. Explain who your competitors are. (And if you say you have no competitors, that is a certain sign you are unsophisticated and deserve no investment money!)

5. Explain why you are the ONE to make this happen.

6. Give your presentation with confidence and enthusiasm. Investors want a founder/CEO to be a chief salesperson; they want to see that you can convince the world of your dream—not just them.

7. Explain what star you can hitch a ride to. Has Best Buy or Radio Shack agreed to distribute your new product? Investors feel much more comfortable knowing you have an established player willing to distribute your wares.

8. Ask for a specific amount of money. If all you do is ask for money, then you can’t complain if an investor gives you $3.25 for a cup of Starbucks coffee.

9. Tell prospects exactly what you are going to spend the money on (hint:a trip to Maui for you and your friends will not impress)

10. Dress well, act confident, and put on the air that you don’t really need their money, but would be willing to accept it if they bring enough to the table to be a strategic partner for you. Sad but true regarding human nature, but people are much more likely to give you money if they feel you don’t really need it.

Finally, make each pitch presentation serve as a focus group for your next presentation. When one group of investors asks you a series of questions after you pitch, write down all of those questions and make sure most of them are answered in your next pitch so that the next group doesn’t have to ask them. Keep pitching and keep improving your pitch and eventually you may get funded.

Understanding your own mind

Understanding your own mind

The route of all insecurity stems from your own mind. Insecurity might be implanted in the minds' of many individuals by negative influences in their life, but ultimately it's up to each individual person to decide whether they let that influence their lives.

1. Think about all the negative people in your childhood

2. Think about what motives they have for giving your commentary

3. Develop an ideal that you think you represent

4. Attempt to become that ideal

5. If those same people criticize you for change, make a judgement on their agenda

Often times personal development may be stunted by a parent or caretaker. This can either be due to the caretaker's insecurities, or possibly simply a foul attitude. No matter the situation, it is your duty to rise above what you feel are your own limitations.
