College Life Is Now Online Live

College life is a lot of fun, but unlike high school, you need to be more serious with schoolwork to make it through with flying colors. But with a lot of pressure, from part time jobs and other concerns apart from the numerous essays and theses you need to complete, it can be really challenging.

For a lot of reasons, college students like me need some help in some subjects and common issues pertaining college life. And I am so glad to have come across this very helpful website www.CollegeConvo.com. After becoming a member of this online community exclusive for college students, connecting with classmates has become a whole easier even in the comfort of home. I even get to befriend the members of the elite circle of students which would not normally happen in the campus, considering their status and fame.

Another good feature that made me take the website by heart is the fact that it offers more benefits other than connecting with friends. You can join discussions and forums about home works and exams, something that you cannot do with the other ordinary social networking sites. At the same time, you get fresh updates from friends and schoolmates about the latest news and events in the university where you are attending. And when you are looking for books and other materials that you need in some of your subjects, this is the perfect place to look for the best deals and affordable prices.

If you have photos or videos to share, you can also upload them anytime to the site. Being a member has given me access to new content uploaded daily by fellow members. Not only do I get to connect with students in my own campus but with other universities as well. It is also a good source of inside information about parties, night life, sororities, fraternities and all the other highlights of college life.

All these privileges are for free. Thats another fact that makes this website truly attractive for college students. I highly recommend www.CollegeConvo.com.

Outsource Your Life And Live The Smart Way

In an economy that we have, not to mention high prices of commodity but low salary, we tend to work hard in an aim of having a good life and a nice way of living for our family. Some of us get not only one job but two or three to be able to have the money that we need. Working ten to twelve hours a day, sometimes even up to fifteen. I myself am working ten hours or more in the office, and then selling beauty products during break, not to mention household chores when I get home. It was satisfactory since it meets the financial need of the family. But honestly, there are times that I feel exhausted.
As a full time pre-school teacher, it is not easy to get extra work or sideline.

I still have lesson plans to do, plus the materials that I will need in the execution of the lesson, like visual aids, questionnaire among others. Later on, I discovered that there is better than hard work. Earning enough or more than enough dollars but not necessarily draining every single energy that is in my body. Not only it is the trend but it is the smart way of getting things done in a clever way. I have learned the value of outsourcing. Doing all the visual aids took hours of my time since I don”t draw fast and good, so I asked a neighbor who can draw better than I am and pay him some dollars. Of course there is outsourcing disadvantages like sometimes, the picture that I want to see is not exactly what he did, but these things are manageable and the good thing about it is that the time that I was able to save was used in writing an article for a magazine who pays me quadruple than I squeezed from my pocket for his drawings. Another move I did was to hire a household helper that would do all the chores while I am writing more articles. Two weeks after I did this, I noticed that I am earning more but is working less.

Others thought that we can only use outsourcing in the business. What we don”t know is that we can incorporate outsourcing in everything that we do, and it will not only save us from grueling, it will bring more income and at the same time generate job for others. If in business world you need to know an outsourcing directory, in an ordinary life, we just need to know people whom to outsource our responsibilities. Everything in this world can be outsourced without exacerbating the quality of work; you just need to be wise in choosing the right person for the job. Outsource your life to improve not only for financial reason, but also to free yourself from stress so you can focus on more important matters.

Vendor Evaluation by Nick Krym is a great deal of advice, tips and more powerful sources that will help outsourcing companies and freelancers out there.

Live life to the fullest with a motorhome!


by kengo

There are sometimes when the monotony of life really takes over and stops you in your tracks. It Prevents you from doing literally anything and you feel that life has taken over and there is nothing more to life than work and home and taxes and bills and computers and mobiles and rising costs and so on and so forth, but that is not exactly it. Life is beautiful. It is just the monotony of the routine we follow that takes over and prevents us from doing a lot of things we normally would.

The best thing to do when feelings like these take over is to simply take a break from routine life and go out to some secluded place for a camp. Ideally hire a motorhome from one of the motorhome rental companies and take that along to some place where you can leave the monotony of life behind and live for yourself within the laps of Mother Nature. It is must suggestive those before you leave, first and foremost, check all the documents of the hired motor home and preferably take it from an established and experienced motorhome rentals company. This way you can be assured that there will be no problems along the way or once you reach your destination.

One of the next steps, following the motorhome hire from the motorhome rentals company is to decide if you are going alone or with friends or with family. It is more preferable that you go with someone very close to your heart and someone who can stand rough life for a few days. Also take along your dog if you have one and because you will be living in a motor home there will be no problems of where the dog will stay. Dogs somehow relate to that part of a human’s mind that cannot be accessed by anyone and that’s why they are also called man’s best friend.

Infact many a motorhome rentals companies have motorhomes on hire that are fitted with a special section to keep pets. This way if you suddenly decide to go fishing or to go mountain climbing, you can leave your pet inside the ‘pet home’ and go with a free mind and rest assured nothing will happen to your precious pet. Also remember that when you take a motorhome on hire to go out and relax, remember to check it when it arrives. If there are any problems ensure that you point them out to the motorhome rentals company. This can help in avoiding a lot of unpleasantness later.

Last but not the least, enjoy your stay away from the daily life and live every moment of it to the fullest.

How to Live a Successful and Fulfilled Life

There are a few people in this world of ours who lead successful and fulfilled lives. Perhaps not a few, but many.

What’s their secret? How do they manage to live the life we all want? In fact, do we believe it is possible for people to live a fulfilling life? One step further, do we believe we can live that same fulfilling life? A life that is fulfilling in our relationships, in our careers, our health, wealth and health?

Sure we can once we know the ‘secret’.

What’s the secret?

To become successful and fulfilled in many, if not all, areas in your life you have to let go of all your limiting beliefs and create and instill enhancing beliefs.

That’s the secret!

We understand that our beliefs came about, whether we are aware of them or not, from our parents, friends, teachers, media, culture or traditions, and from many other ways. For example, one particular thought that was repeated to me over and over when I was a child growing up, that finally became a limiting belief, was, “Money doesn’t grow on trees.”

Now as an adult, that belief is as strong now as it was then.

If you have that belief you will find it hard to make a lot of money. That belief alone has the power to hold you back from making a large amount of money. Could you imagine how many other constricting beliefs you have ‘against’ money?

For you to get ahead in life it is imperative that these limiting beliefs are identified and eliminated.

Here’s a simple but powerful way of eliminating limiting beliefs, once you have identified them.

Firstly, think of a belief as a way you interpreted something or were told for you to interpret something. This already can weaken the belief. Next, go to a mirror, get close to it, and look right into your eyes; deep and with strong convincing intention.

Present this argument, or something like it: “Oh, yeah. Money doesn’t grow on trees. Who says? Money is made from trees, and there’s a heck of a lot of trees in this world making a heck of a lot of money. And since money does grow on trees I claim to have many of those trees to give me a huge amount of money…”

Go wild and have fun. Convince yourself that money does grow on trees.

Use this over and over until you well and truly convince yourself; then move on to another belief. Make this a life-long fun process and you will reap the benefits.

You choose: would you rather stay stuck where you are and let those sabotaging, limiting beliefs run your life, limiting your success and fulfilment, or would you rather eradicate those limiting beliefs so they won’t control you so you may become successful and live a fulfilling life?

Your choice.

Techniques to Live an Improved Life

Attitude makes a lot of difference, do you think so? That’s where everything begins from. Without a healthy and fine attitude, we head towards failure before we even begin. It makes a huge difference in whatever we do. The perfect attitude helps a salesman to achieve his monthly target; a student can score A’s on his or her exams; and an employee can efficiently deal with the official work. In every situation, it is possible to win with the right attitude. There are some basic techniques to improve your attitude.

Thinking

Rather than thinking about failure think more about success. We are our own worst critic and it’s not at all difficult to be hard on yourself as you wish give your best performance all the time. If you think hard enough, you will be able to find at least five things at this moment to prove that you are doing better than before. It may be jogging an extra mile, scoring better grades in a tough exam, or navigating your way better through the software of your job. When you think about how you are performing, it helps you to gain that confidence in yourself which finally improves your attitude.

Reading

Read books that inspires and motivates you and listen to such CDs. This will feed your spirit and mind and with positive attitude. I always buy empowering CDs and also subscribe to a monthly book/magazine that highlights the best speakers in my networking business. Remember, readers are leaders and leaders are readers!

Express Enthusiasm

Everyone likes to associate with a person who carries positive attitude. A positive and enthusiastic greeting gives people a sense of belonging in this world. When you are asked, “How are you?” then just answer with “Great!” When you express yourself this way, it puts you in the right frame of mind.

Lighter Side

Life gets serious sometimes but the only the positive people in life can see the lighter side of it. They tend to fall and slip while walking but act as if they are dancing. Use humor in your life that helps to see that it’s just a passing cloud. Humor, jokes, funny anecdotes not only reduces the stress but fills you with more positive energy and this improves your attitude. So always see the lighter side to improve your attitude.

Regular Exercise

People who exercise daily reflect a positive frame of mind. You are not required build six-pack abs or lift heavy weights to get the benefits of exercise. Regular exercise gives you positive feedback in the weight management, release of endorphins, and a sense of doing that’s uplifting and positive. Try out a 30-60 minute exercise session. You will really feel great!

These are some basic techniques to build a positive attitude. There are many techniques like these. Just begin with these techniques and on your way you will find yourself more of them to improve your mind frame and life.

Live the Life You Really Want

When you want to change something in your life it is a very common experience to say that you couldn’t do what you want to do because you would up set someone or that person might be offended or another might think badly of you. The result of all this thinking on your part is that you don’t ever get around to doing the thing you really would like to be doing.

But sometimes we all forget that another person may see the world in a different way to us. The expression about getting into someone else’s shoes is not necessarily to be taken literally although there was a well known actress who found that in order to get into character she had to first get the shoes of the character onto her feet.

However, what the phrase usually means is that you must imagine seeing the world through that other person’s eyes and with their experience of life. You can get a sense of this by standing in a different place and saying to yourself ‘I’m seeing the world through so and so’s eyes now.’ Counsellors use this technique by getting their client to sit in a chair which represents a person and see the world through the eyes of him or her. It’s useful to do this when you have a disagreement with someone and don’t understand why that person won’t understand your point of view.

You may find by stepping into their shoes you can understand their objections. When you understand this you can proceed to reach an agreement with them because when you demonstrate to them that you really understand where they are coming from then they will be more open to understanding your point of view too.

In the end you must consider whether the most important thing in your life is pleasing other people or doing whatever it is that you really want to do. When you get to the end of your life will you say to yourself that at least you tried not to upset anyone. Or will you be able to say that maybe you upset a person or two along the way but at least you did all those things you really wanted to do! It’s your choice whether you live for yourself or entirely for other people. Of course ideally it is great if you can find the balance between fulfilling your won needs and not upsetting too many along the way either.

Living a Creative Life


by izqrdo

What does it mean to live a creative life? It means looking for new and better ways to live from day to day and year to year, rather than going along on automatic or doing what everyone else around you is doing. It means applying that brainpower to more than just paying the bills and winning those video games – and more than even creative thinking or writing.

For example, the usual approach to the problem of survival in a modern economy is to get a job. One’s creative impulses are usually limited to finding the “right” job and doing the things necessary or helpful to getting hired. But a person that is living a more creative life would approach this in an entirely different way. How? That depends on the person, and we can’t call it creativity if it is just a formula. But an example might give us an idea of a different way to think about this part of life.

Instead of looking for a job, a truly creative person could ask the question, “Do I really need a job?” or even the more fundamental question, “Do I really need money to survive?” Both of these questions will inspire different ideas about how to pay the bills and live in society – if they are pursued with an open mind.

There are many ways to make money that don’t require employment by a company. I have met people who pay the rent collecting returnable cans off the streets and from the garbage around the town they live in. I have had friends who made a living just working for individuals in whatever capacity they needed help, without ever having to fill out a job application. Others sell their handicrafts in parks and on street corners in major cities. I read a book by a man who started investing in real estate straight out of high school (and even while in it), and never worked a job in his life. Day traders and artists and prospectors have all found ways to make money – sometimes more than a job would have paid.

So there are options that can be explored. And as for the question about whether a person needs money to live in society, it doesn’t have to suggest that money is unimportant. It can lead one to question how much money is really necessary, or rather how little is necessary if a person makes managing it and using it appropriately a higher priority than making more of it. Some people can make less than $ 10,000 annually in the United States – poverty by normal measures – and still pay all the bills – and travel the world once in a while. I have known some of them.

There are many ways to live. A friend once lived in a tent. Others I’ve met lived in a school bus in the desert. I have known people who take care of other people’s homes as a way to live without rent. Some people build their own homes and cabins. Others get jobs that include a place to live as part of the deal. Still others travel and work when they can, living in any way that they can as they go.

This challenging of common cultural assumptions doesn’t mean that to be creative you have to live under a bridge and perform with trained raccoons in the streets for tips. This kind of questioning is just a start. Many very creative and unconventional people live in normal homes and have normal jobs. But  they are not there just because that’s how it’s “supposed to be.” It just happens to work well for them at the time. Many of these same people spent some part of their life traveling or volunteering in other countries or living on a boat perhaps. But if they live a creative life, they actually explore all the options they have for jobs, homes, relationships, politics, and for every other aspect of their lives.

How You Can Live A Greener Life

If you believe you can make a difference in the environment by changing how you live, there are plenty of things you can do. Making changes in your home and lifestyle is the best way to really make an impact. Some of the adjustments are simple and will become habits before you know it. In other cases, you have to make bigger investments and over time, you will see results. Start your changes by deciding just how much you want to do and budget for the changes. If you are ready to go all out, consider building a whole new house. You can work with a company that builds green modular homes. These factory homes allow you to live wherever you want and lead a life that leaves a relatively small global footprint. Building a new house is a big investment and takes time and patience, but working with the right company will make the experience run smoother. The best part is, you will see major returns in a short period of time once you have settled into your environmentally friendly space.

Those who want to stay in their current space can make change to their houses that are dramatic and major investments or are smaller and easy to handle. Major investments include installing solar panels to improve the heating and lighting in your home and using alternate sources of heating. Heating sources utilize alternative sources of fuel are a great way to create a greener space that can also save you money in the long run. You have more control over heating your house because you are completely in control of the fuel. Instead of relying on an off-site energy company, go off the grid and create your own heat. In some areas, you can even sell the energy you are not using back to the energy company.

A lot of families opt to make smaller changes in their home that may not be as noticeable at first, but over time the make less of an impact on the environment and they do save money. If you are looking for small changes to make in your home that will conserve energy and be gentler to the environment, consider installing a tankless water heater. This is going to cut down on your water bills and it will save gallons of water every time you do dishes, wash clothes or take a shower.

Most families have begun recycling and a lot of communities require residents to do so. Check the regulations in your area and then see if there are other ways you can recycle and reuse items in addition to what is required. In many cases, you can find other uses for items around your house instead of throwing them away. This saves you money on things and allows you to lessen the amount of trash your home generates.

Finally, cut back on what you buy. The less you buy, the less you waste, so trim your grocery bills and limit the amount of items you bring into your home. When you can, look for items with a limited amount of packaging so you are tossing less cardboard and plastic into your recycling bin.

Stewart Wrighter has noticed an increase of factory homes because it is cost-effective. He has noticed that green modular homes are more and more popular because they are cost- efficient as well as environmentally-friendly.
