Love Yourself

Do I come first or my family or the rest of the world?

If you think your family, then you will be very surprised to know it's not because when you work extremely hard day and night, week in week out exceeding the normal work hours by over 60 plus.

And in the forefront of your mind is your family (partner, kids) with deep love in your heart for them, ever you will burn out and break down. (Your depression will start slowly)

As the time passes you by and all your children have grown up with wisdom and knowledge,

Their financial structure has been set by your hard work over the years by sacrificing your youth health you ever reach old age.

Your children will fly away like birds to find their place in the big wide world and leaving you all alone in your home.

"Your inner voice calls out"

Do this or do that? Fulfil this dream and that dream constantly torturing you and when least expected your aspirations from the past will step in and remind you of all the things you have not done or yet to be done.

However, the saddest thing will be that you will have no more energy and strength to do anything because of old age.

And the world will pass you by while you're sitting at home lonely and miserable.
You come first?

"You must love yourself before you love another, by accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy."

You simply organize your life around your own timetable, fulfilling all of your old dreams to your new dreams and aspirations.

Do the things you love and do the things that make you happy, have one day specifically for only you and your close friends, because they bring enjoyment and fulfillment to your life, and though you will be in touch with the world?


1) Have one day for relaxation
2) Live in the present and focus on the future.
3) Be organized

It sounds good but can I really do it?

Yes off course you can just by organizing your entire week, next a month after that the entire year.

If you study any successful person in the world, you will come to realize the key fact that they were extremely organized.

Monday to Sunday you have 168 hours in the week, minus your work and sleeping hours you are left with all the free hours to do whatever you want.

Intern you will find Time for yourself, family, friends and relaxation.

You and your time are extremely precious?

The beautiful world was your servant when you entered it. The trees produce oxygen for you so you live healthy; The earth produces beautiful fruit and vegetables for you to eat.

And the animals are your servants, some you eat others use as transport and others you keep as pets.

You are so unique and precious no one has your finger prints in the entire world, which means there will never be another person like you in this world ever again.

So you have one life, one chance, one shot to be the best you can be.

Remember when you love yourself and are happy everything around you becomes happy and full of positive energy.

Like your family, friends and the rest of the world, so I hope you realize one very important fact that "you come first".

Final Step To Financial Freedom

If you read this article after going through the earlier 3 articles it will make more sense.
A two liner on the previous articles, to be truly financially free one has to first learn to live in the present that is concentrate on what one is doing with out distraction. Understanding the link between the past and the future between the present, from the past we learn from our mistakes or our failures, some body once said fail as fast as you can if you wish to succeed fast. By planning for the future one can make sure that one achieves ones dreams with out any blocks. Next is ones attitude towards work and surroundings, it is not always possible to change ones job or life partner but there is something in our control that we can change and that is our attitude towards them.

When we have all these in control we should be comfortable in our life. The next lines are more for the youth as they have more opportunity to implement it than a person who has passed his middle age. Let us speak of the next step by taking examples of two people one follows the traditional path and the other implements the essence of steps to financial freedom.

Mr. Job is a youth twenty five years old with a good job he had all the old values ​​imbibed in him. The moment he gets a good job his family and he himself starts searching for a suitable mate. This accomplished his next thought is about a house to live in. With the little money saved and the generous help of banks in the form of housing loans he manages to complete his dream house. The cost he pays is a recurring installation for the next 20 years. At this joke in life the third member in the form of a bundle of joy enters into there life that is there first child.

Expenses mount and Job looks for a part time job or in the words of a famous author one more bucket to lug in water or in this case money. He leads his life in this manner making both ends meet with great difficulty and before he knows youth and middle age has passed him unseen. A weary and discontent man is all that is left of the former brilliant personality.

Let us now see what the second youth who has some modern ideas does in the same situation. Our friend here is Mr. John; John also gets a good job and gets married. Here ends the similarity in Jobs and Johns life's, John instead of buying a house for him to stay approaches the same banker and takes a loan to build a shop or office that he can let out with the rent he gets and maybe a few more rupees He starts paying his installments without feeling the pinch. Here as time passes the rent of the building increments while the installments towards the loan decreases. Now John finds that he has enough surpluses ever month, he plans a few wise investments consulting the financial experts. To make a long story short by the time John is forty he has an income from his assets which is more than what he earns from his 9 to 5 job. He is in a position to retire from the grind at any point of time he decides. What we can learn from these two situations is instead of falling for the trap which in the book is rich dad poor dad the author calls it the rat race one should plan to build assets instead of liabilities, in the olden days a house to live in was Considered a asset but now we know it is really a liability which can bore you very badly. My advice to the youth is the first chance you get start building assets however small they are in the long run even before you know you will be in a position to get away from the grind of day to day living or hand to mouth living.

Quick and Easy Sonic Vibrations Homeschool Projects

Sound is everywhere. It can travel through solids, liquids, and gases, but it does so at different speeds. It can rustle through trees at 770 MPH (miles per hour), echo through the ocean at 3,270 MPH, and resonate through solid rock at 8,600 MPH.

Sound is made by things vibrating back and forth, whether it’s a guitar string, drum head, or clarinet. The back and forth motion of an object (like the drum head) creates a sound wave in the air that looks a lot like a ripple in a pond after you throw a rock in. It radiates outward, vibrating it’s neighboring air molecules until they are moving around, too. This chain reaction keeps happening until it reaches your ears, where your “sound detectors” pick up the vibration and works with your brain to turn it into sound.

As long as there are molecules around, sound will be traveling though them. That’s why if you put an alarm clock inside a glass jar and remove the air, there’s no sound from the clock. There’s nothing to transfer the vibrational energy to. It’s like trying to get a ripple on a frozen pond. The rock just stops on the surface.

Sound can change its travel speed. Another word for sound speed is pitch. When the speed slows down, like with drumming, the sound speed is low. With clarinet reeds, it’s high. Guitar strings can do both, as they are adjustable. If you look carefully, you can actually see the low pitch strings vibrate back and forth, but the high pitch strings move so quickly it’s hard to see. But you can detect the effects of both with your ears. The range of your ears is about 20 – 20,000 Hz (cycles per second). Bats and dogs can hear a lot higher than we can!

Let’s try out some experiments with sonic vibrations:

Bobby Pin Strummer: Straighten three bobby pins. (A bobby pin, when straightened, has two different sides – a smooth side and a rippled side.) Wrap a rubber band tightly around the base of an empty tin can. Slip in a clothespin under the rubber band, jaw-end first. Add three clothespins, about 120 degrees apart. Clamp the rippled end of a bobby pin into each clothespin, so that your contraction low looks like a can with three legs. Strum each pin, one at a time. What happens if you clamp the pins at different heights?

String Test: Push the end of a length of heavy string and a length of light thread through a hole punched in the bottom of a can. Tie the ends inside the can to a paperclip so they stay put. The can should have two different strings coming out of the bottom. Place the can near your ear as you strum each strand. Can you make the pitch high and low? What other types of string, yarn, thread, fishing line, etc. can you use?

Mystery Pitch: Blow across the mouth of an empty soda or water bottle to make a whistling sound. Add a little water and try again. Add more water and try again. Add more water.. What happens if you use a glass bottle? Place an empty glass under the sink faucet and tap the side of it with a fork and listen to the sound. Slowly fill the glass with water while you continue to tap. What happens if you use a spoon? Knife? Whisk? Wooden spoon? Of these two experiments above, which one increases the pitch and which decreases the pitch?

Phonograph: Pierce the bottom of an empty plastic container (such as a butter tub or yogurt container) with a tack. Choose an old record that you don’t mind scratching and place it on a turntable. (In a pinch, you can place it on a pencil tip and spin, but this takes practice.) Use your new “stylus” and hear the music! Doe the size of the container matter? What if you use a pin instead of a tack?

Easy Guitars: Wrap a rubber band lengthwise around a ruler. Push a pencil crosswise (perpendicular) under the rubber band. Pluck the rubber band. What happens if you move the pencil? What if you use a different kind of rubber band? What if you use a different sized ruler?

Sneaky Clocks: Place an alarm clock (the kind that ticks) or a timer that is ringing on a table and listen. Now place your ear on the table. Fill a zipper bag of water and press it between you and the clock to hear the difference. Next, place the clock in a closed metal can (like a cookie tin or coffee can). What about a paper bag? A glass jar? A newspaper-filled shoebox?

Stryo-Phone: Make yourself a telephone by punching a small hole in the bottom of two cups (foam, paper, tin… is there a difference?) and threading string into each one. Tie the end of the string inside the cup to a paper clip so the string stays put. Cut the phones apart and tie each end to a slinky and try it out. What happens when you bang the slinky into different things, like walls, metal chairs, wood tables, or the floor? Untie the slinky and try a wire coat hanger, fork, spoon, or other kitchen utensil.

Learn to Sail Like a Pro – Are You "Sail Ready" to Enter That Harbor?

Learn to sail like a pro when you know the secrets of sailboat control under sail. When was the last time you saw a sailing vessel enter a marina ready in a matter of seconds in case their marine engine died? Read on for five sailing tips to be prepared for the unexpected.

Watch sailboats go in and out of a marina and you might tend to wonder what you are seeing. After all, it would make sense that sailors know how to sail well enough to slide alongside a pier, piling, wharf, seawall, or even into a slip. And do so under sail alone–when their engine dies.

Notice I say “when” — not “if“. That mechanical beast called an “auxiliary” requires hundreds of tiny, delicate parts to work just right to dock a boat, like:

  • Shift into forward propulsion.
  • Shift into neutral gear.
  • Shift into reverse propulsion.
  • Turn the propeller shaft.
  • Increase throttle speed.
  • Decrease throttle speed.

Become more “sail ready” to take over just in case one of these functions fails. Here are five fast and easy sailing tips to get you started…

1. Enter With Sails Ready to Hoist.

Stow sun covers or canopies to clear the cockpit before you enter or exit a marina. This will allow you to work your sails with better all around visibility. Keep halyards ready and attached to the mainsail and a small working jib. If you have a cutter rig, hank on a small flat cut staysail. Stow sail covers below until you are tied up safe and sound.

A final thought–keep headsail sheets free to run. If you need to enter under headsail alone with the wind aft, you must be able to luff the headsail all the way. This applies to furling sails too. Keep headsaill sheets ready to run free to maintain that “sail ready” status that puts you in control!

2. Prepare Your Bow and Stern Insurance Policy.

Get your main bow anchor and a smaller, easy to handle, stern anchor. Check that all anchor rode will run out free of knots. Train your sailing crew or partner how to deploy them for peace-of-mind in any tight spot like a marina, narrow inlet, or shoal infested waterway.

3. Regulate Sail Control “Throttles and Shifter”.

Learn the sail controls and points of sail that give you virtual shifters and throttle. Use the close reach for the ideal docking point of sail if possible. Pull in on the mainsheet to speed up; ease the mainsheet to slow down; slack the mainsheet all the way to luff the mainsail and drift to a stop; push the boom out (backwinding) to stop fast.

4. Look for Emergency “Pit-Stops” Along the Way.

Look for empty slips, dock space, or even pilings ahead of your boat when you enter or exit a marina. These will empower you to have a ready-made pit-stop to slide alongside or into in case your iron Genny fails to deliver.

5. Work Wind and Current to Your Advantage.

Which side of the narrow channel of waterway do you favor. First, in your mind, stop the engine. How will your small cruising sailboat drift? No matter whether sloop, cutter, ketch, yawl, or cat–you can bet she will drift downwind or down current. So you should always favor the upwind or up current side if possible.

That may not work if you have the wind to port and heavy outbound boat traffic. The Navigation Rules require you to stay to starboard. But when you get a break in boat traffic, slide over a bit to windward to stay “Sail Ready” for action if necessary.

Learn to sail like a pro with these five easy sailing tips that will put you in control. Prepare ahead of time to become the true master and commander of your small sailboat, wherever in the world you choose to sail or cruise!
