Written by Ronald Yip

Continued from page 1

8. Specialized Knowledge and / or experience Whatever it is you want to be, you must acquirerepparttar specialized knowledge or skills required for it. Otherwise, your wish is just wishful thinking. You need to makerepparttar 149884 right decision, make your plan and takerepparttar 149885 appropriate action.

9. Exercise regularly and sensibly Regular sensible exercises keep you fit, alert and strong. Regular exercises helps blood circulation and need I say more?

10. Stay Employed or Occupied Even if you have to take some time off work to adjust to a new situation, try to work part-time, stay occupied or full-time. Keeping a job is a good way to stay active.

11. Food You are what you eat. Take a balanced diet, not just eat abundance of what you like and little of other food in order to give your bodyrepparttar 149886 balanced amount of nutrition required to maintain a healthy body. Avoid too much hamburger burgers. Plain boiled water is good, cola is not good. Listen to your doctor’s advice if you are sick. For example people with diabetic issues should know what can be taken and what need to be avoided. Avoid heavy food at least 3 hours before going to bed. Avoid alcohol, take more vegetables, more fruits and fish.   12. Helping Others The more you giverepparttar 149887 more you will get in return. Those who help others are also helping themselves. For example, if a consultant helps others in need by giving help and information, he is actually gaining trust from whom he helped and eventually people will like to do business with him.

Contributing to society is an important aspect of good life. By helping others within your means to help those who are less fortunate is our obligation to society. If you do that consistently, you will feel good about yourself and your fortune will grow even further because more people will be attracted to you.

Money likes to befriend people who already have abundance of it! Give generously to society, let money flow like water. I like whatrepparttar 149888 famous property tycoon of Hong Kong, Mr. Lee Ka Shing said, "no matter how much money a person has, he only take a 3 meals a day and sleep on one bed!".

13. Relationship The fact that relationship whether it is dating or married is hard. Things do not go perfectly right most ofrepparttar 149889 time. Say “I love you” more, and don’t under estimaterepparttar 149890 ‘power of touch’. Avoid heated quarrel, no one wins a quarrel. The one who thinks he wins a quarrel loserepparttar 149891 respect ofrepparttar 149892 other. Put your family first and your career second if you need to make a critical decision.

14. Stay In Touch This is an information age, a digital age,repparttar 149893 age of dramatic change. Stay onrepparttar 149894 Internet, be informed, and don’t lose touch!

Understanding the Three Levels of Obedience for a Three-Year-Old

Written by Maren Schmidt

Continued from page 1

So we teach and re-teach asrepparttar child moves between levels one and two, and then one beautiful day,repparttar 149873 child is working atrepparttar 149874 third level of obedience.

Let's take an example of making a bed. Atrepparttar 149875 first level,repparttar 149876 child is shown how to make a bed. The child shows willingness by trying to makerepparttar 149877 bedrepparttar 149878 next morning. The bedspread is hanging too low on one side and there are lumps. Being friendly with error,repparttar 149879 adult simply states, "You maderepparttar 149880 bed by yourself."

The next dayrepparttar 149881 child forgets to makerepparttar 149882 bed. The adult gives another demonstration, wordlessly looking at both sides ofrepparttar 149883 spread to make sure they are even. The next dayrepparttar 149884 child makesrepparttar 149885 bed. The fourth dayrepparttar 149886 child forgets to makerepparttar 149887 bed. The adult remindsrepparttar 149888 child, andrepparttar 149889 child goes cheerfully to makerepparttar 149890 bed. Ifrepparttar 149891 child protests,repparttar 149892 adult simply smiles and says "Let's do it together," knowing thatrepparttar 149893 child may have forgotten how to do it.

After a few daysrepparttar 149894 child can makerepparttar 149895 bed with just a verbal reminder. At some point, weeks, months or years,repparttar 149896 child will reachrepparttar 149897 third level and makerepparttar 149898 bed perfectly without any reminders. (Parents of teenagers are allowed to roll their eyes if still waiting on this third level of obedience.)

All of us learn faster and better in a trusting relationship. Trust is developed by offering assistance in a clear, concise and kind manner. The adult doesn't askrepparttar 149899 child to do something that is too difficult or belittlerepparttar 149900 child for not being able to do it. The adult remembers that it takes many reteachings to get torepparttar 149901 second level of obedience and much practice to arrive atrepparttar 149902 third level.

The adult needs to observerepparttar 149903 child's will, skill and experience levels before asking them to do something. We can offer assistance torepparttar 149904 child, keeping in mind "any unnecessary help is a hindrance."

Forrepparttar 149905 three- to six-year-old, these levels of skill, experience and obedience are changing daily. As adults, we need to remain "friendly with error" asrepparttar 149906 child's experience and memory propel them torepparttar 149907 third level of obedience, an obedience built on a relationship of trust and mutual respect.
