The dictionary defines difference as:

* The quality or condition of being unlike or dissimilar. * A specific point or element that distinguishes one thing from another. * A noticeable change or effect. * Discrimination in taste or choice; distinction.

Each one of us is different. Each of us has our own personality, talents, gifts, and ideals. When we take what is uniquely us and use it to build our businesses, we end up with products or services that are noticeable, distinguished, and distinct. And there is tremendous beauty in that.

Don't try to be like everyone else you see. Take time to find out what your passion is and pursue it. Find that element in you that makes you stand out fromrepparttar crowd and develop it. Do not be afraid to be unique. As you nurture your individuality, your business will be noticed because no one can do it just like you.

There is beauty in difference.

Did Nostradamus Predict the Sept 11th Tragedy?

Written by Richard Lowe

Continued from page 1

Yet another variation showed up in emails all overrepparttar internet.

Earth-shaking fire fromrepparttar 125590 center ofrepparttar 125591 earth. Will causerepparttar 125592 towers aroundrepparttar 125593 New City to shake, Two great rocks for a long time will make war, And then Arethusa will color a new river red.

This actually comes from a real verse, below.

Volcanic fire fromrepparttar 125594 center ofrepparttar 125595 earth will cause trembling aroundrepparttar 125596 new city: Two great rocks will make war for a long time. Then Arethusa will redden a new river.

You will noterepparttar 125597 correct translation does not include anything at all about towers.

Some hoaxer playedrepparttar 125598 numbers game (another favorite pastime ofrepparttar 125599 followers of Nostradamus). The attack is no exception.

The flights that were hijacked were from United and American Airlines, they were numbered as follows: 11, 93, 175, and 77

11= Today's' Date (Sept. 11) 9+3=12 = Tomorrow (Sept. 12) 1+7+5=13 = Thursday 7+7=14 = Friday

I'm not sure what this is supposed to prove, but it's pretty darn silly. A hoax, of course.

The flights were chosen for specific reasons. The numbers meant nothing.

- Destination (large amount of fuel on board), - Origin (large amount of fuel remaining at time of impact), - airport security (or lack thereof), - and time of departure (for a loosely coordinated attack)

There is a real passage from Nostradamus which is similar torepparttar 125600 one above (although nothing matchesrepparttar 125601 attack facts).

When 1999 is seven months o'er Shall heaven's great King -- albeit a dread host, he -- Restorerepparttar 125602 King from Angoumois once more, Ere -- after March -- he'll reign propitiously.

This verse has been used to predict everything (almost literally) from comets to disasters.

So what'srepparttar 125603 bottom line? The prophecies of Nostradamus may or may not be valid. But they have nothing to do withrepparttar 125604 terrorist attack on September 11th. Nothing at all.
