Sheep And Wolves Among People

Published by admin on 25 Jul 2011

The topic for this article was inspired by the educational program recently screened at local television. It compared people to sheep by observing the behavior of both in exactly the same situations. Needless to say, the two species exhibited nearly identical responses to the challenges thrown upon them. However, this shouldn’t come as a surprise if you already know that various things follow similar patterns in life. Instead, it got me wondering who are the wolves in the human hierarchy. The answer is other human. Read further to know how to be in a wolf pack and not a sheep flock.

Why Planning Is Important

Published by admin on 15 Jul 2011

I was inspired to write this post after having a conversation with my friend who has no idea what she wants from her life. And she is not the only one of those I know who has no direction to follow. To me it was obvious that you have to know where you are heading, however, when I started catching up with my classmates whom I haven’t talked to for years I realized that most people simply go with the flow. This gets you nowhere as you have to make plans in order to get somewhere nice.

The Truth About Living In Paradise

Published by admin on 15 Jun 2011

My dream about living in paradise was shuttered when I moved to Australia, which I considered the ultimate country for a living, and discovered that it also has its flaws. However, my journey in search for a paradise place to live started much earlier than that. When you make money on the Internet you are free to choose where you office is, remember? At the age of 20, after getting my first degree, I went to travel Asia. I have been to Singapore, China, Cambodia, Malaysia and Thailand where I finally decided to settle. After all, scenery in Thailand looked exactly like it did on the pictures which we are conditioned to believe are the pictures of paradise. Read about my experience below.

Pick-Up Lines And Business Ideas

Published by admin on 31 May 2011

Among other things I’ve been playing with in this world comes what is known as a ‘pick-up’ in the community. For those unaware, this is an act of approaching strangers on the street, clubs and pubs for the sole purpose of talking to them. What people do with this skill is up to them. For me it was a way to combat my fear of strangers, especially girls. So I set it up as one of my life goals to overcome this fear. In the process I realized how similar thinking processes actually are. It all comes down to the way you do it, be it the thinking aimed at coming up with the lines for picking-up girls or coming up with the ideas for your new business venture.

There Is No Competition

It is never crowded on the top.

Any book in the Book Reviews section of this blog can potentially make you a very wealthy person. These books are read by millions. Does it mean that the competition get stronger as more and more people apply the same principles in their lives? Absolutely, not!

How To Get Things Done

Published by admin on 06 May 2011

You might read a lot about how to get big tasks accomplished and how persistence is important when doing it but let me tell you about my experience which I received while doing my very first big project I faced back in High School that benefited me in the rest of my life. Mind you, I was the only student in the class to accomplish it and not even a geeky girl in glasses who later finished school with gold medal came close to finishing it.

Igor Korotkov Com

Let me congratulate you my first visitors who apparently found this personal blog by typing in part of my private email address into the toolbar. You are special! Only a limited number of people have been trusted with my own address for correspondence to avoid unnecessary messages and keep the conversation out of the public eyes of service providers. But there is no need to hide it anymore, so share away the address to this personal blog and check it out for yourself as you might find some interesting stuff in there.

It doesn’t stop to amaze me how much successful and wealthy people are willing share their life experiences with those who ask and seek their advice. I’ve met many of such people and read plenty of blogs and autobiographies of others. I wondered why they do it and not keep the information to themselves but soon I found the answer to the question myself. As you reach a certain level in your development you simply want to tell everyone about it. Tell them how you’ve done it and, more importantly, show them that everything is possible. An example, a proof, is exactly what I look for at the beginning of each of my life journeys.

Personally, I refuse to believe theories and want to hear and read stories from the people who already got where I am heading too. However, there is one thing that makes it difficult to put good advice into your own life. You see, even though their advice is often valuable they now went too far from regular folks they project it at. So, I though, since I have already walked many walks of life under the guidance of my mentors and am still in the process of achieving my life long goals, I will serve as a middle man between those on the top and those at the starting point to ease the transition and help along your own life journey.

Initially, I wanted to postpone the launch of my blog. But I feel there are already too much information that I gathered along the road which simply needs to be saved for people to draw on and in order not to be lost.

Read about myself in the About Me section and decide if my life experiences will be of any use to you.

I should only warn you that no fairy tales will be told on these pages. Every of my achievement described required hard work and persistence which you need to cultivate shall you decide to follow a similar path.
