The Special Ingredients Present in ProSolution Pills

Jul 02 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

ProSolution Pills are different from other similar products available in the market today because of one significant reason. These pills contain a number of specially patented products that are designed to create significant benefits for the male using them. These specially formulated products are made from herbal ingredients just like everything else that is used in these pills. The three main products in this line are Solidilin, L-Dopa and Drilizen. As you shall see, these products have some specific benefits for penis enhancement and improving the overall health of the male using them.


Solidilin is shown to directly influence the sexual motivation in men. This compound can improve the sexual urge in men who have low libido. Tests conducted by the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences in the University of Science, Malaysia, have attested the libido enhancing prowess of Solidilin in a famous experiment that was carried on laboratory rats.

Solidilin becomes a significant part of ProSolution pills. Since this substance can make men more aroused, they get erections more often. The other components then help in improving the blood flow into the penis, thus bringing about substantial permanent gains.


L-Dopa is a precursor to dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter present in the brain that is associated with the sensation of pleasure. The introduction of this substance ensures that the sexual act becomes more pleasurable to the male, which enhances the overall experience. L-Dopa is not a patented product, but ProSolution pills are one of the few penis enlargement products that use this substance as an ingredient.


Drilizen is directly connected with the release of nitric oxide, a substance that is useful in vasodilation. This effect helps in opening out the blood vessels of the penis, which can then get better engorged with blood. This helps the person to get a better erection. The larger amount of blood also means that the penis becomes firmer. Also, the erection lasts for a longer time.

Drilizen is also associated with testosterone stimulation. When the concentration of this male hormone increases, the overall activity becomes more pleasurable.

Thus, the ‘special’ ingredients present in the ProSolution pills make this more than a run-of-the-mill enlargement product, helping in improve the quality of the act and not just the quantity of the organ.

Information Technology Strategies – Past, Present and Future

Jul 02 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

We have seen extraordinary changes in IT over the past three decades. During this time we’ve seen new technologies and new IT strategies develop and mature. As we approach 2010 I’d like to share my predictions for the next generation of IT. Some companies have already awoken to see their new IT future but mostly IT organizations are still wrestling with the nightmares of past and present strategies. I hope this article will awaken more companies to the new world at their doorsteps and rethink their IT ways of the past, present and future.

Up until the 1980′s we experienced the era of mainframe exclusivity where strict controls and IT disciplines were the norm. This era limited us to mainframe reports as our exclusive medium for information. Custom report requests took weeks and months to deliver because of the sheer number of requests. There was a hunger within corporations for information: information to help guide decisions. But the mainframe reports only teased the taste buds of information hungry business leaders.

The 80′s

This hunger led to the explosion of distributed computing of the 80′s. I use distributed computing in a very broad sense here to include all distributed systems of the time including midrange (Unix), Wintel (Novel, PC LAN) and desktop PC’s (DOS, Windows 386). A multitude of others have sprung up since these “pioneering” systems were introduced and are included in this category. In this decade smaller departments took their standard mainframe reports and imported them into their own distributed systems and created their own customized data stores…with customized reporting. These new “distributed” systems sprung up throughout the enterprise. Different systems in different locations: all creating storehouses of information…all using different operating systems and different databases and different applications that didn’t talk with each other.

The 90′s

In the early 90′s corporations realized for the first time that with all these departments running their own distributed systems they lost track of how much was being spent on IT. Each department had their IT cost buried in their own departmental budgets. In these distributed environments many IT support staff performed dual roles. We saw Accounting clerks performing systems administration functions and tech savvy clerks become the informal help desk that department users called when help was needed.

By the mid 90′s we saw a major effort in corporations to centralize their IT functions into one IT organization. This was the only way corporations could regain their grasp of their total IT spending. Through this IT Centralization effort, departments once again lost control of their systems, data and most importantly, their information. Central IT became the Technology Police telling departments what information they could have and what they couldn’t.

The new Centralized IT’s of the 90′s had several challenges. Their charter: provide the whole enterprise with IT support within a set budget. Within these new centralized IT organizations many questions had to be answered. Should the new Centralized IT force departments to surrender their systems and technical staff or should incentives be provided for them to comply? What services should the Centralized IT provide? Everything the departments needed or wanted or only pre-defined services? How would Centralized IT services be funded? Will the departments pay by user or will it be a corporate expense? How should IT projects be funded, by the requesting organization or a Centralized IT budget? Consequently every corporation wrestled through these questions and came up with different IT models.

The New Millenium

When the 2000′s rolled around we saw IT formalizing on best practices. These practices developed around a set of basic services provided across most system types such as Hardware/Software Standards, system updates/upgrades, tape backups, off-site storage, help desk services, Change Control, etc. These base services evolved from efforts to trim down IT overhead. In the 2000′s Outsourcing of data center operations became more plausible as companies sought additional cost reductions. During this period the phrase “managing your mess for less” became the unofficial mantra for IT Outsourcing who took over the mess Centralized IT created and charged a lower rate for delivering the same basic services.

By 2005 we heard a new battle cry to lower costs even further. Enter the age of “off-shoring”. IT providers heeded the call for lower rates by delivering services with low-cost overseas resources. If the early 2000′s mantra was “your mess for less”, the mid 2000′s mantra was “your mess for even less”

As we embark on the next decade of 2010, IT leaders will awaken to a new day where they realize “your mess for even less” still costs too much! Their new mantra will be “why are we living with this mess in the first place?” IT leadership will stop and evaluate why they are providing the services they are providing? Why are they backing up everything at each site to tape and sending it to off-site storage as if everything at remote sites is critical information? Why are they backing up everything at their data centers to tape when the only things that must go to tape are critical records for archiving? What low-value services are they providing that don’t need to be performed? Over the next decade IT will redefine themselves and eliminate their mess altogether.

2010 and Beyond

In 2010, IT Organizations will restructure themselves around three strategies. First, IT will fine tune the services they offer. For example, they will provide full services to critical systems/data only and they will tolerate longer outages on non-critical systems. They will change their approach to backups and incorporate temporary disk storage as a replacement for tape backups for non-critical systems, particularly in remote branch offices. IT will surgically eliminate all “low value” services on a “system by system” basis. They will provide services only where needed.

Secondly, IT will outsource their basic services such as helpdesk and systems administration to IT providers who will deliver those services for a fraction of their own costs. Thirdly, IT leaders will redirect their focus from providing generic IT services to providing essential technologies that key business groups need to grow the business. IT will transition from being cost centers/overhead to revenue enablers. IT once and for all will get rid of “their mess” and transform into a true business partner.

In 2010 the new IT Organization will put less emphasis on system specific technical skills and more towards senior technology professionals who can generate business value by incorporating technologies. By the end of the next decade IT organizations will consist of high-end technical resources that design business specific solutions across multiple frameworks. They will have diverse, multi-platform, solution designers with a handful of implementers and system administrators.

Over the past 3 decades we saw IT evolve from Mainframes to Distributed Computing. We saw IT functions sprawl as companies moved to distributed computing. We saw IT make full circle by Centralizing IT to include both Mainframe and Distributed Computing. We saw Centralized IT mature into a service model and Outsourcing its operational services. In the next decade, we’ll see IT transform “their mess” to “no mess” revenue enablers. Instead of being viewed by business units as the obstacle to overcome, IT will become the “go-to” team that enables business units to reach their revenue goals.

Thinking on Your Feet – How to Organize a Presentation Almost Instantaneously

Jul 02 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

“How can I learn to think on my feet?”

That’s one of the most frequently asked questions I get about public speaking.

It’s usually followed by, “I’m OK if I have time to prepare a presentation, but my mind just goes blank if I’m called on with little notice.”

When I hear that, my first response is usually a question back to the questioner. “Could you have anticipated being called on? Was this an issue or project where your knowledge would been useful or interesting for the people you were meeting with? If so, thinking ahead and preparing for the possibility that you might be called on, would have prevented being surprised.”

But even if you try to anticipate situations, you are bound to miss some. In those cases, there is a solution.

Here’s a 4-step formula to help you think on your feet (or sitting on your seat) when you’ve been asked unexpectedly to speak. It provides instant organization and allows you to look and feel confident.

Think of 3 questions you are frequently asked about the topic. (Or think of 3 issues you can talk about and turn them into questions.)
Open with, “Here are the 3 questions I’m being asked about [topic].
Ask yourself the first question and then answer it. Repeat for questions 2 and 3.
Conclude with a call for action (“What I need from you is…”); a summary of your objective (“The bottom line of all of this is …”); or a forward-looking statement (“So here is what we will be focusing on in the next [quarter]“).
There you have it. A way to organize your thoughts. Quick. Easy. Powerful.

And it lets you succeed where most speakers fail–when thinking on your feet.

The Importance of Teeth Whitener in the Present Generation

Jul 02 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

A Teeth whitener is a compound that is used to whiten the teeth. If the teethes are improperly maintained without cleanliness, yellowish and brownish stains will be the result. No one likes to roam around displaying these discolorations. When people start noticing these on their teeth, they always seek the best teeth whitening products to whiten their teeth. In this brief description, I will be listing the importance of these products. We want to remove these discolorations in an effective and orderly manner. With suitable guidance and proper usage of specific products, one will be able to regain the natural whiteness of the teeth.

There are many misconceptions in this niche. We will start with them. The white color of the teeth can be maintained by regular brushing and this is on the top. It is true that the discolorations can be partially averted by brushing. However, the diet plays an integral role on the color of the teeth. Along with regular brushing, one should alter the dietary practices so that a teeth whitener can be effective. One need not visit a dentist for whitening their teeth. Modern day technology has advanced in such a manner that the teeth can be whitened in the comfort of your house.

The ingredients which are present in a teeth whitener play an important role in whitening the teeth. The product may be manufactured using synthetic or natural substances. It is better to stick with those products manufactured using natural substances. They are known to be fast-acting, effective and the whitening effect will stay for some time. Besides, they do not pose any serious health implications like the other compounds. If you are confused about the specific activities of the ingredients, you can always look up the necessary information on the internet.

Choosing the right teeth whitener is integral. Keep in mind that you are investing on something to keep your teeth white. Wrong turns must be avoided. In the extremes of the situation, people have known to lose their teeth. Now, that is something inappropriate. The idea is to invest on one, after reading through the countless reviews that are posted online. Specific websites are known to cater for the users who are new to the niche. Personalized recommendations will be listed in these portals, and you are free to choose one among them.

Speaking about the importance of these products in the present generation is immense. The mental balances of people vary. Some are known to flaunt their yellow teeth. At the same time, some people are known to stay indoors because of their teeth. Instead of cowering, it is best advised to seek out the various whitening products. A quick research on the internet and you will be out on the streets aiming to buy one of those products. People start realizing the importance of possessing whiter teeth only later at their life. By then the situation would have aggravated and expensive procedures will be required to whiten the teeth.

Cards of Destiny – Your Yearly Spreads Cards – The Key to Your Past, Present and Future

Jul 02 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

The way the system of the cards of destiny works is quite magical in many ways. First of all, instead of months, the year is divided into seven planetary periods, each 52 days long. They begin on your birthday each year. On your birthday each year you begin the Mercury period, which lasts for 52 days. The entire sequence is as follows:

Mercury – begins on your birthday, lasts 52 days Venus – lasts 52 days Mars- lasts 52 days Jupiter – lasts 52 days Saturn – lasts 52 days Uranus – lasts 52 days Neptune – starts 52 days before your next birthday

The dates that each of these periods begin can be calculated by simply adding 52 days to your birthday, and so on. For example, for someone born on December 5th, the dates would be

Mercury – December 5th Venus – January 27th Mars – March 20th Jupiter – May 11th Saturn – July 2nd Uranus – August 23rd Neptune – October 14th

These periods begin and end on the same dates, except on leap year for a small number of birthdays.

In each of these periods are generally found two cards (Neptune often has only one). These cards are not selected by you. They are calculated from the day of your birth. Thus these cards and the other ones in your ‘yearly spread’ as we call it, are all fixed from the moment of your birth. The two cards in each period, we call planetary period cards, govern these 52-day periods and tell you what will happen, and often who that will happen with. For example, someone who as a 4 of Hearts and a Jack of Diamonds in their Venus period might get married (4 of Hearts) to a young Diamond man (Jack of Diamonds). And often the cards that show up in our planetary periods are the very Birth Cards of people we know, ensuring us that they will be the ones that we will be interacting with at that time. It is amazing sometimes how uncannily this can work out. I remember when I took my first class in the cards I realized that I had an A of Hearts with a 2 of Clubs in Venus, right at that time. Well, Catherine Oxenberg, a famous actress whose Birth Card is a 2 of Clubs, was another student present in that class. And the A of Hearts represented my strong attraction to her. I was stunned when I discovered that, and a little embarrassed, thinking that she would know my secret.

These planetary period cards are important for understanding what is going on during these 52-day spans of time and helpful in making future predictions. But there are five other cards in the yearly spread that are actually a lot more powerful than these. We call these the Year-Long Influence Cards.

Year-Long Influence Cards

These five cards are the most powerful of all. Actually people from the special family of seven that we discussed in our last lesson only have three of these. But in either case, these are the cards to look for first when making some sort of determination about what a year holds in store for us. The five cards are: The Long Range Card The Pluto Card The Result Card The Environment Card The Displacement Card

The last two are the ones that the special ‘family of seven do not have. It is a bit complicated to explain why right now. Just chalk it up to their fixed natures for now. We will talk a bit about each of these cards now.

The Long Range Card is the most important of all. I call the headliner card for the year. It essentially points to something, or in some cases, someone, that will be the most important holder of your attention for any given year. I can often scan the Long Range Cards for someone and see how their future will unfold over a period of years. It is quite fascinating. But whenever I do cards reading on my weekly radio show, the first place I look is at the caller’s Long Range Card. Usually it will tell me everything I need to know. It is just that important. In addition, you have another Long Range Card found in the yearly spread for your Planetary Ruling Card, which does not appear in these free applications. When you want the entire picture of the year you will want to know both. I remember when I appeared on the Marilu Henner show a numbers of years back. She was studying her spreads and looking for cards that would represent the birth of her newborn son. There were no childbirth cards present. However, his Birth Card was her Long Range Card! When I pointed this out to her, her skepticism turned into surprise and wonder.

The Pluto Card and the Result Card are related. As we begin each year, they both, when their meaning is combined together, tell you what the challenges you will face this year. Sometimes these are cards of people you know, or will meet. Usually they represent something you want that you do not have as you begin your year. When this happens, they are an important goal. Other times these cards represent changes that you have been ignoring, but are necessary. We used to call these the challenge cards. The cool thing is that every year you are guaranteed to make these changes and the reward is your Result Card, which is always interpreted in a positive way. Sometimes it represents a quality you will possess and in some cases a person. I remember predicting the birth of my second son Michael because that year I had the King of Hearts, called the father card, as my Result Card. This is how easy and amazing this system is.

The Environment Card is always a blessing card that gives us gifts for the current year. It also can be a person, or it could be a money card, a move card, or a love card. Whatever it is each year, it will be something that is helping you. Wouldn’t you like to know what yours is?

The Displacement Card is equally important. It is a ‘locational’ card, though that is a bit difficult to explain in an introductory article like this. What it often does is pinpoint major years of success, fame, recognition, reward, or in some rare cases, caution. Some of the most important cycles of our life are heralded by our Displacement Card.

Your Birth Card has a yearly spread and so does your Planetary Ruling Card. So for most people this means you have two spreads to look at each year. With so many destiny cards, you have ample information about every month of the year, and the year in a general sense. All of this probably sounds a bit complicated. However, I guarantee you that you can learn this in an hour or less. Imagine, you invest an hour of your time to learn a tool that you can use for the rest of your life. I have business clients who spend thousands of dollars having me examine their yearly spreads to help them make business decisions.

Robert Lee Camp is the number one teacher, author, and authority alive today in the realm of card science. He has written over 15 books about this amazing science and has personally performed several thousand readings for individuals and for businesses and corporations. Get a

What I Learned About Powerpoint Presentations In The Military

Jun 14 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

As a military officer I’ve learned quite a bit about using PowerPoint and learned the hard ‎way how to brief complex information in a short amount of time. I’d like to share my ‎experiences with you so that your next presentation will be a surefire success. ‎

First, in my opinion, success begins with your slide show and its set up. This is one case ‎where less is more. PowerPoint is a powerful piece of software with a ton of good ‎features that have their place, however, fancy transitions, embedded sounds, and odd ‎colors can cloud a presentation and distract from you objective – getting your point ‎across. So, with that being said, I offer the following suggestions:

o Use a slide master – found under View – Master – Slide Master. If you set this ‎up right you can eliminate a lot of formatting later.

o Follow the KISS (Keep it Simple, Stupid) Principle. Eliminate the flowery ‎background and the fancy fonts – a simple black and white slide that outlines ‎your points in quick succession will go much further than a pretty slide lacking ‎content. Also these stripped down presentations will be smaller and load ‎quicker, reducing wait times when you’re briefing away from your personal ‎computer.

o Show the “Bottom Line Up Front” that is, from the beginning, let your audience ‎know what your point is and reinforce it along the way.

Second, how you give the presentation tells a lot about your comfort with the information ‎and your preparation. Remember you’re the one giving the presentation, and therefore ‎you’re in control of the information flowing and you can lead the audience where you ‎want them to go. I offer the following suggestions:

o Watch your body language – what are you doing with your hands and arms? ‎Are your arms crossed over your chest or do you frequently gesture with your ‎hands? Neither is 100% right or wrong but I submit that keeping your arms ‎crossed over your chest sends a signal that you don’t want to be there and ‎frequent hand/arm gestures can distract from your presentation.

o How do you give the information? Don’t be the presenter that reads the slide ‎verbatim to the audience. If you’ve done your homework you should have set ‎up your presentation so that as the audience reads your slides, your narration ‎amplifies what’s on the screen or provides clarification for complex slides. ‎Nothing frustrates an audience more than having a slide read to them.

o Make eye contact and keep the audience involved. You’ve come to tell them ‎something or sell them something, etc…so to that end, the more you involve ‎them and make it clear why you’re there; then your point is more likely to sink ‎in.

o Utilize concrete examples in your presentation and be able to articulate where ‎you got your information from. While some presentations can make use of ‎emotions, I submit that empirical data goes further than raw emotion 9 times out ‎of 10.

In summation, I think GEN Colon Powell said it best in his book, MY AMERICAN ‎JOURNEY, when briefing – tell them what you’re going to tell them, tell them, and then ‎tell them what you said. It’s a good construct to follow. Have an agenda slide, give the ‎presentation, and then recap for your audience. Utilize the opportunity to engage your ‎audience and never ever read slides to your audience. ‎

Not everyone has an instant affinity for public speaking and working with PowerPoint. ‎However, with some practice and keeping a few simple tips in mind, you can greatly ‎improve your public speaking ability by adding PowerPoint slides.‎

Mother’s Day: Purchase The Perfect Present!

Jun 13 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

The good thing about there being so many choices for Mother’s Day gifts on the market today, is that there are many great ideas for Mother’s Day gifts you may not have thought of before. In this article I hope to help you see a whole new and wide variety of Mother’s Day gifts to choose from.

If she is a new mom, the very best Mother’s Day gifts may be gifts that will help with the baby or toddler. Or, perhaps she would prefer something personal and just for her–depending on the woman. However it is often practical and pleasantly surprising for a new mother to receive Mother’s Day gifts such as toys, blankets, pajamas, and other practical items for her new child.

New moms tend to really like Mother’s Day gifts such as t-shirts or coffee mugs that say “number one mom” or even custom designed t-shirts that have a picture of the new infant, baby or toddler that says: “I love my mommy”. This is, of course, because a new mommy is usually very proud.

However, on the other hand, there are moms out there who consider these kinds of Mother’s Day presents tacky and would much more appreciate a nicer, more expensive gift. If the Mother’s Day gift you are looking for is for your own mother, you very likely already know her personal taste in gifts. The most important factor in such a case then yields the question: how much money do you have to spend on Mother’s Day gifts? Believe it or not, you can find beautiful and luxurious Mother’s Day gifts at discount prices when you search online. And many of these items will be great choices for your mom.

Kids buying Mother’s Day gifts may need a little help, of course. Try to find some merchandise for them to look at before they decide. Of course, the merchandise the children select from will have to be in their allowance price-range, unless you, as their father, or guardian want to pitch in and give the Mother’s Day gift from both of you. Signed “with love from little Josh and Daddy” or something like that.

Young adults looking for Mother’s Day gifts will most often have to consider the cost as well. However, adults do not usually need help finding a Mother’s Day gift within his or her price range very easily. Especially when you search the Internet, there are many great selections to look at.

Your Mother’s Day gifts will be impressive and unexpected when you browse around for that perfect item that mom is sure to love. When you see it you will know that it is perfect for her. You may have given her the usual types of gifts over and over for a long time–but with a wide range of possibilities, you can make this Mother’s Day stand out from all the rest with the best gift ever!

For spouses, and older adults the same rules apply–although older adults and spouses often have a higher budget to work with. However, there are still Mother’s Day gifts that are high quality merchandise and in tip-top condition offered for great prices at the simple click of a mouse. Shop from the convenience of your home this Mother’s Day and choose the Mother’s Day gifts ideal for her!

Your Loved One Deserves the Perfect Present From You This Christmas

Jun 12 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Sometimes your significant other can be the hardest to shop for when it comes to finding the perfect Christmas gifts. Why is that? Well, it’s probably the fact that it’s pretty important that we get it right. Ever given a gift and had it totally bomb? Chances are, you have and so you will feel quite awful if she doesn’t absolutely love the Christmas presents you choose for her. After all, you should know what she wants more than anyone. So if you’ve been wracking your brain and you’re coming up empty handed in the Christmas gift ideas department, this is for you.

The solution? Give sexy lingerie! The bottom line, it is a gift that keeps on giving. For no matter where your love life is currently, a thoughtful present such as a corset, bustier or babydoll will only make it better. They’re available in every style and fabric you can imagine to please even the pickiest lover. Choose from satin, sheer, fishnet, leather or lace. And a decent selection of plus size lingerie, hard to find in the past, just keeps getting better and better. There simply is no better way to let her know how sexy and beautiful you think she is.

And ladies, even before the big day, you can get things warmed up with a sexy Mrs. Claus or Santa’s Little Helper outfit. He’ll be wondering what he did to deserve what he’s about to unwrap. And, he’ll want to unwrap you all year long, over and over again.

Sexy lingerie doesn’t have to be expensive if you know where to shop. In fact, it’s Victoria’s Secret and Fredericks and the fact they spend millions on advertising as to why their prices are so high and you might be thinking this is not an option for you given the economy. Here’s the truth, though. You can get a lace bodystocking for around $10. If there ever were a cheap way to have some holiday fun and score a 10 in the gift giving department, this is it!

Preparation for Your Presentations

Jun 10 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

(Excerpted From the Jim Rohn Millennium Weekend Event)

Persistence in your presentations, this is one secret to success. After my first presentation, I got up and did it again. Even though I was scared to death, I did it again. And that second one wasn’t too good, but guess what. I did it again, and I did it again. And I worked up my courage, and I did it again. I committed to it, and I did it again. And finally, it got to be a little bit easier. I got a little more acquainted with the art of presenting. So have something good to say in your presentations. Preparation for your presentations, this is another key aspect. Here are some words to help you in preparation.

To prepare to have something good to say, keep a keen interest in life and people. Don’t let your senses go dull here. Guess what most people are trying to do – get THROUGH the day. Here is what I am asking this unusual audience to do – get FROM the day. Get from the day a clear picture of the drama of human life – some doing is right, some doing is wrong. Some gathering in; some throwing it away. Some building reputations; some letting it all slide.

Get from the day what is happening in politics. Read the newspapers. Read the magazines. Find out what’s going on. Get from the periodicals. Get from what’s happening. Get from your job. Get from your career. Get from the people around you. What is happening in the community? Get from all of that. The positive side, the negative side.

My parents used to say, “Attend everything.” Some things are so costly; they might be out of reach for a while. Andrea Bocelli came to Beverly Hills. Guess what the tickets cost? $2500.00 for a two-hour performance. That is pretty good pay. So some things might be out of reach, but whatever you can go to, get to. Save up the money and go, so that you will be more aware of what is going on around you.

Keep up that interest in people. Why do they do what they do? How come things are happening today that didn’t happen thirty years ago?

Now the next word is fascination. Be fascinated with life and people and drama that is live and in color every day. Cinemascope. Fascination goes a little bit beyond interest. Interested people want to know does it work. Fascinated people want to know how does it work.

Kids have this unique ability to learn several languages in a six, seven-year period, and the reason is because they are so fascinated. They are so interested. They are so curious. Kids have to know, and that is how the drama of their learning takes on such speed in a fairly short period of time is because of this unusual interest and fascination and curiosity. We’re walking on ants, and kids are studying them. They say, “Don’t walk on those ants. I’m studying them.” How come an ant can carry something bigger than they are? That is a good question. They must be unbelievably strong if they can carry something bigger than they are.

Here is something else I’ve learned. To be fascinated instead of frustrated. It is just a little trick to play. The next time you’re tempted to be frustrated, see if you can’t turn it into fascination. Instead of a frown, it puts a smile on your face. Now sometimes you look a little weird, but so be it. He says, “How can he smile?” I don’t know. He must be somebody different.

Babe Ruth – Home Run King – back in those days of baseball used to strike out and come back to the bench smiling. They used to say, “Babe, you just struck out. How can you smile?” “I’m just that much closer to my next home run. Just stick around. It won’t be long. One will be sailing over the fence.” So find things fascinating instead of frustrating. Just try it. I’ve learned how to do it. Now make this note. It doesn’t work every time. Nothing works every time, but every time you can get it to work, guess what? It will benefit your day. You’ll get more from it. You’ll be fascinated instead of frustrated.

Now I’ve also learned the ultimate. I’m fascinated by my own frustration. How come it doesn’t take me long to loose it on occasion? It must be from my father’s side. My mother was a gentle soul. Just find it all fascinating. I’ve talked to a lot of the Network Marketing companies over the years, and I give them that little clue. Somebody joins and you think they’re going to stay forever, and they leave right away. You have to say, “Isn’t that interesting?” And someone you thought would never make it, sure enough they become superstars. You have to say, “Isn’t that interesting?” You say, “I thought they’d stay forever, they don’t stay. Isn’t that interesting. I didn’t think they’d do anything, look what they’re doing. Isn’t that interesting?”

So that is a good phrase. Find it interesting. Find it fascinating. Wow, I never thought that would happen. I had another picture in mind. Wow! Was I ever wrong. And it’s good sometimes to be wrong on the positive side. I didn’t think it was going to work, and it worked. Say, “What if somebody doesn’t look at your business opportunity?” Say, “What if they do?” It doesn’t take much to turn the question around. Say, “What if they won’t join after they look?” “What if they do? What if they join and stay.” But I’ve got a better question, “What if they do stay?” “What if they quit after three months?” I have a better question, “What if they stay?”

So sometimes little tricks you can play to give yourself a different look because somebody could either stay or leave and wouldn’t it be better to assume that they would stay and then if they leave say, “Isn’t that interesting?” I have learned to do that with myself. “Wow! Look what I did. Isn’t that interesting? Wow! I thought I was going to behave better. Wow! I lost it. Isn’t that interesting? I thought for sure that wasn’t going to bother me. Sure enough. I thought I had a handle on this. Looks like I’ve got some work to do.” Find yourself fascinating and interesting as you journey through life. Give yourself a chance.

Now here is the next word that is very important if you want to be a good communicator, and that is sensitivity. Sensitive to someone’s drama and trouble and difficulty. As you contemplate your own, now you can be sensitive to someone else. And there is no better way to be helpful than to do your best to try and understand. Here is the old phrase we’ve heard it, let’s jot it down this time. “Learn to walk in someone’s shoes for a while. Try to understand where they are.” How come they’re in this dilemma? Maybe it’s something I don’t know. I don’t understand. How come this person is losing his temper when he should keep it? Who knows what might have happened the last three weeks. I don’t know. Let’s give somebody room by trying to understand.

Be sensitive to someone lashing out and being difficult at the same time. Hey! We can handle that. We don’t have to retaliate and fight back. Can’t we say, “Maybe there’s a good reason this person behaves in this way.” That is an easier way. Sensitivity. Trying to understand. Trying to comprehend the full drama of human experience. One of the greatest phrases in the Bible, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” Guess what a peacemaker is? Someone that you hope is around when the conflict could be resolved. Someone who understands both sides and brings them together. Say, “I know you’ve got some animosity, but now that you’ve fought and that didn’t settle it… couldn’t we get together and reason this whole thing out.

So in times of conflict, we look for a peacemaker. And the peacemaker has to understand both sides of the issue. Say, “I understand your dilemma, and I can see where you’re coming from, and I can understand why you said what you said then you said what you said. But hey! Isn’t there a better way? Couldn’t we find a better way to settle it all?” And that is what we are looking for.

Parents have to learn to be peacemakers when there are two sides to an issue and maybe neither one is that far wrong. But to try to settle it, we have to understand both sides. We have to understand the feelings on both sides, and that kind of sensitivity gives us a wonderful opportunity to grow, so that we can communicate and our words will be meaningful. Then the test comes, and the drama comes and the time comes to step up and speak or to sit down and speak or to be quiet and speak or to be loud and speak. Whatever that might call for, we’ll be prepared if we do have a genuine understanding. So preparation in all areas of life is so vital to your success. Don’t be lazy in preparing; don’t be lazy in laying the groundwork that will make all of the difference in how your life turns out.

To Your Success,

Jim Rohn
