Is Self-Improvement Different For Women Than Men?

This article is the starting point for self-Improvement. Is Self-Improvement different because of your sex?  Self-improve has become mainstream conversation in recent years, it seems to be showing up in articles almost everywhere. Almost everyone should work on their self-confidence, happiness, career, finances, relationships, home and health. Wherever you may be, whatever your situation, you should work on self-improvement.

Get ready to change your life! Set up a program and start working on it.  You can reach your full potential and create the success you deserve. There is no quick fix; the road to change is not an easy one. For this to work you must commit to and dedicated yourself to bring new changes of improvement into your life.  I suggest you take it one step at a time, the greater the commitment the longer the journey.

Ask yourself is self-improvement any different for women than for men?  My answer is yes and no.  However both male and females differ physically and the fact is that a woman does have circumstances that are different from those of the man, when it comes to self-improvements they are basically the same.

Have you ever though that some men and women are born leaders?  The answer to that is no, being positive and staying positive is a choice for both men and women. One must stay positive if we are to improve ourselves. Building self-esteem and drawing lines for self-improvement is a choice, not a rule. Leaders and positive thinkers are not born they are made out of the desire for self-improve. If you want to be a leader you have to develop a burning desire for self-improvement and stay with it.

Your changes must come from inside. Your work won’t improve unless you improve regardless what your sex may be. Your relationships won’t improve unless you improve. Society won’t change unless the people in it change, meaning you. You are the only person you can change. While self-improvement is not contagious, a change in you can influence a change in others.

Now it is time for you to start putting the puzzle together for self-improvement?  First be positive. Second be contented and most of all stay happy. Don’t forget to be appreciative.  Never overlook the opportunity to compliment someone. 

A positive way of life will help you build a higher self-esteem, let this be your starting point for self-improvement. Turn loose your resistance, don’t procrastinate.  Find your internal motivation then move forward toward with your self-improvement. Discover your inner self and explore your own personal powers.

Success And Happiness On “The Road Not Taken”

Set your goals high as journey down the road your to success. Raise the bar when you reach a goal and raise it even higher when you reach the next. Never give up! Remember it is your right to be wrong, because if you do you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward. One who does not make mistake probably is doing nothing anyway. You cannot be a success without making a few mistakes along the way. Learn from your mistakes and try not to repeat them.

What is success? Is it someone who spent their life working 60 to 80 hours a week, living in airports and   hotels, as they fight their way up the corporate ladder to VP of Candy Company? He would probably consider himself more successful than the guy who owned the local garage. You know the guy that spends his nights at home having dinner with his family, weekends and spare time playing with his kids and working on his hobbies, Could it be the local garage owner who goes home at night and eats his meals with the family and helps the kids with their homework could be more happier and healthier? Ultimately, it is up to each person to decide what success means to them, it is important that everyone be mindful of the decision they are making or planning to make.

Each one of us has to choose which road in life to take, with each different road come a different adventure, a different successful story and a different love story. Be careful which road you take make sure it is the right one for you.

Remember I said you have the right to be wrong? Yes you do, you are going to make a few mistakes along the way but the earlier in life you can figure out what your mistakes and weaknesses are the sooner you can move forward and be more successful and happy with every aspect of life. Take charge of your life if you want to be successful you have to be happy.  Without happiness wealth has very little or no meaning.

Don’t be afraid to change your mind, what is right for someone else may not be right for you.  We are all unique and different individuals; everyone must custom tailor their own life if they want to be happy and successful.

Myself, I took *”The Road Less Traveled” and like Robert Frost the poet said said “That has made all the difference”.   Good luck my friends in making the right choice this is where it gets tough.  Taking the road less traveled was a very hard decision for me with so many roads to choose from.  Many of those roads were quite inviting but many were dead ends leading to nowhere.  Once I made the right choice I never looked back except to measure my successes and failures. From there I set my sails and my goals to a new life with new horizons. For you the road most travel may be right for you, like I said we are all different. We see, we feel and we do things different so don’t be judgmental of the person who sees it differently than you.

A man who also took “The Road Not Taken” was one of the most successful business men in the business world; he was the late Steven Paul Jobs better known as “Steve” Jobs, co-founded of Apple IncorporatedSteve Jobs was a household name and American business legend in the world of success. He helped revolutionized the world as we know it today with his contributions as a designer, inventor and entrepreneur in the world of communications and computers technology.

I will leave you with the following thoughts you may wish to consider using on your own road to success, they were spoken by the late Steve Jobs. Steve had a set of principles he lived by which I would like to share with you.

1. Do what you love.

2. Put a dent in the universe.

3. Make connections.

4. Say no to 1,000 things.

5. Create insanely different experiences.

6. Master the message.

7. Sell dreams, not products.

I wish your luck on your journey as you travel down your road to success.

Why Smiling makes us More Successful!

First: Our smile shows others people that we are friendly.
If a stranger approached you and gained eye contact with you and then treated you to a broad smile you will have a fairly good idea that they are being friendly and certainly mean you no harm.
By contrast we would find it far more difficult to offer trust to the stranger that wears a scowl or unfriendly face features.
Second: A smile can make people happy.

When someone treats you to a smile, even a stranger, you usually smile back. For that moment you enjoy a flash of positive communication without saying a word. As you walk through a crowed area such as a main street you can do this hundreds times in a very short period of time.
When you smile at someone who is not already smiling and they smile back you have brought a moment of happiness into their lives which, who knows, could last all day.
Third: Smiling is infectious.

When you spend a lot in the company of someone who smiles a lot you will soon discover that their smile starts to wear off on you. It is hard not to return a smile; most of us do it at a subliminal level without thinking.
Fourth: Smiling can make you popular.

Which type of people do you prefer? A person that has a tired and listless face, an expression they may reflect their inner thoughts of boredom and worry? Or, would you prefer someone who is always smiling and shows that they have an enthusiastic passion for life.

I think for the majority of us the choice would be obvious!
Fifth: Smiling can help you to make new friends.

In the same way few of us would choice a miserable person for a friend. Let’s face it we all want someone who is going to be bubbly and a happy and positive.
Sixth: A smile is usually returned.

When someone smiles back at you it make you feel good inside. You have just made a short but very positive communication and possibly the first step in the process of getting to know or making friends with someone new.
Seventh: Smiling makes you positive and happy inside.

When you smile it is hard to feel unhappy, negative or sad in anyway. Smiling gives you enthusiasm and drive, it is also habit forming.
Eight: A smile makes you look far more attractive.

You don’t see many celebrities or media personalities that are not smiling because if you did it is fairly certain that their popularity would quickly start to drop!
Ninth: Smiling also helps make you memorable to others!

Have you noticed that smiling people are usually far more memorable than those that are not? It is fact that you are 3 time more likely to remember the person that is smiling over the one that is wearing a negative or neutral features.
Tenth: Most importantly, smiling is good for your health!

When you are smiling you find whatever you are doing far easier. It releases stress, worry and tension that you may have built up throughout the day.  Long term, developing the smiling habit will be one of the smartest things that you can do to improve most aspects of your life.
Eleventh: The effects of smiling can last for hours.

Whatever problems and challenges you have in your life, smiling temporary puts them and hold. For a while you forget the problems and become positive, and while you are in a positive state you have far more potential and power to advance and improve your life.
Lastly: Smiling is FREE!

In Closing, you are never going to run short of smiles and will always have enough to go around. When you weigh up the positive points of smiling it is a no brainer decision to do far more smiling and share them with as many people as possible.
Keep smiling.

How to Maximize Your Real Estates Income

“Have you ever thought about leasing a billboard space on your property? It’s a great way to generate additional cash income”

Thomas Gunter a 46 year veteran of the outdoor adverting and today owner of Billboard Brokers of America, LLC announces a great way to increase the revenue stream on your real estate. Property owners may want to consider leasing billboard locations to billboard companies for the placement of highway billboards. It can be very lucrative. Here are a few tips you should know to help you get started.

When renting a billboard space on your property to a billboard company, you have several different options ranging from lump sum cash payments, to monthly payments, or combinations of both. The sign’s footprint requires an approximate 5’ x 5’ space with standard monopole steel structures so the impact to your property is very minimal and the return could be great.
The property owner normally has the option to restrict advertising displays from adult entertainment ads, alcohol or tobacco ads, or any ads that would compete with a business at the sign site location. In addition, the billboard company normally pays all Tangible Property taxes and permits associated with the sign structure.

5 things you should know about your property before you call the billboard company.

1) Visibility. Do you have a possible billboard location on your property? First you need good visibility from the highway or street where the advertising will be visible from. A normal highway billboard location has a 4 to 5 second read from the highway for viewers. 3 to 4 second billboard reads can be used but 5 are better. City billboard locations are more complex. You may have street viewers and slower traffic that has to be taken into consideration. Times Square is a great example with over 1,000,000 viewers a day. Most are pedestrians.

2) Traffic Count. Does your billboard property have a good traffic count? That is going to be very important in evaluating what your future billboard location’s value is and determining its true value. This is a very important part of the billboard evaluation equation.

3) Property Zoning. Know what your possible billboard location’s property is zoned is before you get started. You are going to need this before you consult the billboard company along with its physical address and legal description.

4) Billboard Government Regulations. Know what your local and state laws are governing billboards for your property’s location. Call the local building and planning office, they can help. Ask for the person in charge of the outdoor advertising planning. If your highway is a State or Federally funded Highway such as an Interstate check with your state Department of Transportation’s outdoor advertising division.

5) Billboard Separation. Each city, county and state has their own set of laws governing the distance between each off-site billboard location. Off site billboards are billboards that advertise business in a location other than the location where the property where the proposed billboard is to be located.
