One way of getting a good look at the different behaviors among people is to be a passenger on a bus traveling long distances from one city to another. Ever since the appearance of the cell phone for mass usage, some of us believe we have the right to expose our private business to anyone within earshot. This look inside the private life of someone may at first seem interesting, but when the exposure is several hours long, and the phone conversation is equally long, one’s interest quickly dissipates. The careless way we handle private information is probably a feature of the time in which we live. Formerly, people in public places just did not share their private stuff. There were at least two reasons for this, private business was just that–private; and the neighbourly concern that their loud conversation may be a disturbance to the people around them.

On one extended bus trip, it seemed that concern for others was the last thing on some people’s mind. There were those who put either their bags or feet on the second seat of the fully booked bus, even though they had paid for only one seat. What was also interesting was the different ways in which passengers seeking seats asked the inconsiderate traveller to remove either their feet or their bags. Some people started conversations with complete strangers that lasted the entire seven-hour trip, while others who sat beside each other did not even share a smile. People–what a wonderful collection of differences


Dream 2

We marvel at the success that some people seem to have,regardless of what they attempt to do. We may even secretly envy their “Midas touch” and wonder why life never goes that way for us. Could it be that some of us are more comfortable in a risk-free environment and are not prepared to gamble it for an uncertain success in the future? Blueprints and plans are as necessary for developing dreams, as for any other project.So often, we race headlong into situations without any preparation, research, or the slightest notion of what to do if, and when, trouble comes. It takes dedication, tenacity, as well as a “fire in the belly” to activate the energy and passion we need to do things well.Some of us,however, are capable of doing well only the things that have been prepared for us. These people seem to lack the creative vision and energising passion that make the difference between merely flying and really soaring.Far more hours of planning than dreaming are needed for your dream to become a successful reality.You have to believe in yourdream and yourself. Never underestimate the power of your dream. Remember that no one else will ever share your level of passion or commitment, the dream is yours, not theirs



It has often been said that the three most important factors when purchasing real estate are location, location, and location.

Location also happens to be of great importance when life -changing events occur. Since we are all different, our abilities to cope with difficulties are stronger or weaker at different times in each life. Some of us are more resilient in our younger years, and are able ride through difficult or horrible events without any major effect on us. By contrast, others have their lives changed forever and may even become dependent on a chemical substance just to get through from one day to another. Some do recover, and they may become so strong that they never need any further assistance if or when life hands them a raw deal again. We are not always able to withstand distress, and that is why even those of us who usually cope, are at times unable to deal with life’s difficulties. It seems that our ability to battle the vicissitudes of life is in direct relation to where or when they are located in our life cycles .

It is therefore important for you to realize that your strengths and weaknesses ebb and flow. Do not be discouraged if you are not coping well at this time. Seek help if you need it. Your chances of surviving are good, and the next time you are in trouble, pay attention to just where this problem is located in your life. It will be time well spent.
