Have you ever, at any one time, had the feeling that life is bad, real bad, and you wish you were in another situation?

You find life make things difficult for you, work sucks, life sucks, and everything seems to go wrong...

Read the following story... it may change your views about life:

After a conversation with one of my friends, he told me despite taking 2 jobs, he brings back barely above 1K per month, he is happy as he is.

I wonder how he can be as happy as he is considering he has to skimp his life with the low pay to support a pair of old parents, in-laws, a wife, 2 daughters and the many bills of a household.

He explained that it was through one incident that he saw in India... that happened a few years ago when he was really feeling low and touring India after a major setback.

He said that right in front of his very eyes he saw an Indian mother chop off her child's right hand with a chopper. The helplessness in the mother's eyes, the scream of pain from the innocent 4-year-old child haunted him until today.

You may ask why did the mother do so; had the child been naughty, had the child's hand been infected?? No, it was done for two simple words - - -TO BEG!

The desperate mother deliberately caused the child to be handicapped so that the child could go out to the streets to beg.

Taken aback by the scene, he dropped a piece of bread he was eating half-way. And almost instantly, flock 5 or 6 children swamped towards this small piece of bread which was covered with sand, robbing bits from one another. The natural reaction of hunger.

Stricken by the happenings, he instructed his guide to drive him to the nearest bakery. He arrived at two bakeries and bought every single loaf of bread he found in the bakeries. The owner was dumbfounded but willingly sold everything. He spent less than $100 to obtain about 400 loaves of bread (this is less than $0.25 per loaf) and spent another $100 to get daily necessities.

Off he went in the truck full of bread into the streets. As he distributed the bread and necessities to the children (mostly handicapped) and a few adults, he received cheers and bows from these unfortunate. For the first time in his life he wondered how people can give up their dignity for a loaf of bread which cost less than $0.25.

He began to tell himself how fortunate he is. How fortunate he is to be able to have a complete body, have a job, have a family, have the chance to complain what food is nice and what isn't nice, have the chance to be clothed, have the many things that these people in front of him are deprived of...

Now I begin to think and feel it, too! Was my life really that bad? Perhaps... no, I should not feel bad at all... What about you? Maybe the next time you think you are, think about the child who lost one hand to beg on the streets.

"Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want; it is the realization of how much you already have."

When the door of happiness closes, another opens, but often times we look so long at the closed door that we don't see the one which has been opened for us.

It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that! We don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

What are the presuppositions of NLP?

What are the presuppositions of NLP?

Here are some of them:

  1. No one is wrong or broken. People work perfectly to accomplish what they are currently accomplishing.
  2. People already have all the resources they need.
  3. Behind every behavior is a positive intention.
  4. Every behavior is useful in some context.
  5. The meaning of a communication is the response you get.
  6. If you aren't getting the response you want, do *something* different.
  7. There is no such thing as failure. There is only feedback.
  8. In any system, the element with the most flexibility exerts the most influence.
  9. The map is not the territory.
  10. If someone can do something, anyone can learn it.

Ran Online Levelling Guide

Levels 1-30*

1.When you are new in RAN Online... DO NOT CREATE A CHARACTER FIRST. Think which class you will choose.
2.Sacrifice your 20 Peso to Buy 20 EP Card and load up...Buy your (1Day) +7 {Class Weapon of Choice}
which costs 5 EP and the HP Recovery Potion 100 PCS which costs 15 EP
3.Look for the Calendar in and find the best schedule for x2/x3 EVENTS
4.Now Create your character and login.
5.When you are in the game... Try opening your inventory... you will see a (7HRS) Resu Training Roasry.This will
help you level up becuase of its x2 EXP effect.(Note: if you keep begging to get gold from high level players...
YOU WILL PAY THE PRICE which is your roasry will EXPIRE)
6.Dont Try to take the quests.... Leave it alone and do it later... The rosary's duration is already active once you
created your character.
7.Monsters to kill:
1-15 - Hooligans , Bandits
20-25 - Fencers , Street Junkies , Sluggers
25-30 - Slashers , JR. Brawlers , Brawlers , Maulers

Once Power leveling is over and you ran out of supplies.... you can see your gold high enough to buy scrolls
and armors... try not to buy Freshmen and Sophomore Sets... ITS A WASTE OF GOLD... BUY THE JUNIOR SET INSTEAD... Now you can finish your quests peacefully and fast.

Levels 30-50*

If you did the steps from above quickly... I congratulate you ^_^ But if your rosary , 1 Day Weapon , and POTS are gone.... Here are the next steps:

Plan A:(Dont use this plan if there are no x2 EVENTS)

1.Continue Leveling in the area by Buying 1Day +7 EP Weapon (5 EP) and A 1HR Rosary (12 EP) or if your Loaded
with cash... Try to buy a 5HR Rosary (37 EP) and more POTS (15 EP).Now buy NPC Armors next to add Defence.
2.Monsters to kill once you are ready to battle:
30-40 - Maulers , Crooks , Onslaughts , Punks , Renegades
40-50 - If you can beat ONSLAUGHTS fast enough... try completing the "Heading Outside Campus Quest"
- Blood Drinkers , Swordee Ardee , Uncle Potato , Fiery Chiefs , Chickens , Cordys , Stray Dogs

Plan B:(Money maker guide)

1.Buy a 50 EP Card and load up....
2.Buy the business card 7Days (20 EP) and buy megaphone(20) (10 EP)... try to buy 3 sets of megaphone(20)
3.Go to Marktet Place (Channel 1 is the most common spot) and get first the 3 sets of megaphones.
4.Find a slot full of people and get the business card 7D quickly
5.Open a personal market and sell the 3 sets of megaphones at least 25,000-30,000 Gold Price and Wait.
6.If items are sold out... you can make at least 1m-2m. Now buy your weapon , armor , and supplies.
7.Proceed to Plan A

Levels 50-Above*

Here is where you put your skills to use.... Try finding a party spot and ask them if they are full.... If you have
joined successfully , try to obey their instructions and make sure you dont FAST KILL. (Joining a party with
a rosary on and a x2/x3 EVENT activated can be a pleasure in the butt.)

-Factors affecting leveling of party groups:
1.The composition of the members and the leader. (Shamans and TQ'ers are the most needed in parties right?)
2.Great Leadership and command. (Ex: 1st Order - LURE / 2nd Order - BACK / 3rd Order - KILL)
3.Make sure there is no lvl gap number at least 20 or above.
4.Great obedience of members which makes STEP 2 much effective.
5.Always be active. If you try to leech , the price would be REPLACEMENT.
