SCAM-THE EFFECTS AND HOW IT CAN BE CORRECTED OR AVOIDED

FRIENDSHIP FOR THE PURPOSE OF PARTNERSHIP

CAUTION TO BE TAKEN ABOUT THE PROBLEM OF SCAM .

WE WONDER AT WHAT SCAM REALLY IS AND WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT?,FROM MY LITTLE UNDERSTANDING:IT IS A PROCESS WHERE ONE SHAKES HAND WITH YOU AS A FRIEND ON GROUNDS OF BUSINESS OR FRIENDSHIP AND THEN TURNS BACK TO SMACK OR SLAP YOU IN THE FACE.SCAM IS LIKE BEING SLAPED ON THE FACE

THE FACTORS WHICH MAKES US VICTIMS COULD BE AS A RESULT OF WILL FOR BETTER LIFE ,GREED,STUPIDITY AND SOMETIMES IGNORANCE AND WE ARE SOMETIMES LIKE AN OPEN SEA WITHOUT BORDER OR BOUNDARIES,THAT NEEDS GUIDANCE AND ADVICE OR ELSE TOTAL POLLUTION OR DISASTER.IF YOU ARE SO BLINDED BY GREED,THAT ALL YOU CAN THINK ABOUT IS WHEN DO I GET CHECK?,WHEN DO I GET PAID?,HOW MUCH MONEY WILL I MAKE NEXT WEEK?,THEN YOU NEED TO BECAREFUl.

RESULT OF MEETING THE WRONG PERSONSCAM  GENERATED FROM AN INSATIABLE WANT OF MAN,WHICH CAN BE AS A RESULT OF WILL FOR BETTER LIFE ,GREED,IGNORANCE AND STUPIDITY,  WHICH SOMETIMES GIVES ROOM FOR MANIPULATION BY THE BAD EGGS OF THE SOCIETY.IT CAN NOT BE DETERMINED WHEN SCAMMING STARTED BUT, IT REVOLVES ROUND PERSONAL,BUSINESS AND GENERAL ISSUES ESPECIALLY MONEY.

PEOPLE ARE SCAMMED THROUGH DIFFERENT MEDIA FOR EXAMPLE: INTERNET,TELEPHONE AND OTHER MEANS OF COMMUNICATION AND GENERALLY THROUGH DAY TO DAY CONTACTS.

THE QUESTION IS WHAT CAN WE DO TO ADDRESS OR AVOID THIS PROBLEM  THAT EATS THROUGH OUR SYSTEM?

  • BE CAREFUL WITH WHOM YOU DEAL WITH,ESPECIALLY A STRANGER.
  • USE SEPARATE EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN YOU POST MESSAGES TO ANY PUBLIC FORUM.
  • DONT GIVE OUT ANY FINANCIAL INFORMATION.
  • SET UP FILTERS IN YOUR EMAIL.
  • AVOID ANY OF THE QUICK MONEY MAKING PROGRAMS YOU SEE ADVERTISED ON TV,RADIO,PRINT OR THE INTERNET.

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR SUGGESTION?

3d technology

 WHY THE 3D TECHNOLOGY IS AWESOME

    3D technology is awesome because it has a visual display technology that lets us, the viewers,experience 3D images on a home TV in the form of specially created content including games, movies, sports, and others. If you haven’t yet seen one of the latest specially filmed 3D movies at the cinema, the 3D movie Avatar is a great example of that, and when we get the chance to watch specially filmed sporting events and music concerts in real 3D I think we’re in for a treat. Recent studies have shown that viewers watching a 3D Blu Ray movie were more attentive than when watching in 2D.

there are factors that needs consideration when choosing  3D glasses

I’ve simplified it in some areas, but you can see with a number of choices to make if you are considering whether to take the  plunge and buy a 3D glass. The best option, certainly for anyone new to 3D TV, is to first spend some time studying. Read up on  the technology at a site, study a number of real buyer reviews at Amazon, and then visit a store that carries  a range of demo models and try them out live.

why everyone wants 3d movies

The superb quality of today’s 3D movies that are available in the market has improved significantly.The current technology has introduced some real upgrades in the lighting and colouring that has improved the picture quality.All over the world, people hunt for the 3D movies because they seem more real to the eyes and are the best bargain for the money spent on them. The very first 3D movies that were released into the theatres,u2 and Beowulf created history.they changed the entire definition of moving viewing.the recent blockbuster that took everyone by surprise,was the avatar that was successful in attracting a huge audience.

Can You Be Brave When You’ve Gotten Used To Fear?

BEING BRAVE AND OVERCOMING FEAR

TO BE BRAVE COMES FROM THE HEART AND IT TAKES A LO TO BE COURAGEOUS  AND THIS PROCESS HELPS US TO ACCOMPLISH  AND ACHIEVE WHATEVER WE WANT OR DESIRE. FEAR OTHERWISE HOLDS US DOWN MAKING IT DIFFICULT OR NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO CONCENTRATE AND DUE TO FEAR WE END UP NOT ACHIEVING OUR GOALS WHICH WILL KEEP HUNTING US EVENTUALLY DUE TO GUILT, BUT WITH BEING BRAVE WE HAVE THE MIND, ZEAL AND DETERMINATION TO TAKE RISKS. AS FAR AS LIFE IS CONCERNED ” NOTHING VENTURE NOTHING GAINED” BUT IT TAKES DETERMINATION AND COURAGE TO GET THERE NO MATTER WHAT WE WANT. SOMETIMES WE HAVE A GOAL, WE WANT TO DO SOMETHING, BUT DUE TO FEAR WE ABANDON WHATEVER IT IS.

A BRAVE PERSON IS NEVER AFRAID OF CHANGES OR WHATEVER LIFE HAS TO OFFER AND WITH THIS POLICY IN MIND, IT CATAPULTS TO A LOT OF PROGRESS AND SUCCESS, BUT FEAR TO MOVE, JUMP, SING, PLAY, EXPERIMENT, MAKE EFFORT AND MAKE RESEARCH MAKES YOU TO BE STAGNANT AND EVENTUALLY NOT ACHIEVING A THING WHILE YOUR PEERS ARE PROGRESSING.

WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT KINDS OF FEAR ONE WAY OR THE OTHER, FEAR TO LOSE, FEAR OF FAILURE, FEAR OF CRITICISM, FEAR OF REJECTION, FEAR OF LOOSING YOUR PARTNER, FEAR OF LOVING AND THEN LOOSING AND FEAR WE KNOW CUTS DEEPER THAN SWORD AND IT TAKES A LOT OF EFFORT TO BE BRAVE AFTER LIVING IN FEAR FOR A VERY LONG TIME, BUT WITH ENCOURAGEMENT AND DETERMINATION, YOU CAN OVERCOME ALL FEARS AND END UP BEING BRAVE, THEREBY MAKING LIFE A PLEASANT PLACE FOR YOU. SOME PEOPLE UNDERESTIMATE THEMSELVES DUE TO FEAR AND THIS MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO ACHIEVE A FRACTION OF WHAT THEY ARE CAPABLE OF, BECAUSE THEY ARE AFRAID TO TRY. ANYBODY CAN OVERCOME FEAR  AND BE BRAVE EVEN IF WE HAVE BEEN FEARFUL FOR A VERY LONG TIME. IT TAKES DETERMINATION, EFFORT AND COURAGE TO ACHIEVE OUR GOALS AND HEART DESIRES. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO HAVE FOCUS, DETERMINATION AND BE BRAVE OR HAVE THE COURAGE TO MAKE EFFORT, NO MATTER WHAT WE WANT.

What Can Fear Do To A Relationship?

Fear Of Losing A Precious Gift

fear

Fear is one great thing and there are different dimensions to it which includes breaking up, being rejected, misunderstanding, judgement, loneliness,  loss, change, aging, being overwhelmed, being ignored from what you want, boredom, fear of control, fear to fail, and fear of being helpless.  Sometimes we become scared, especially when we have the most precious thing or valued relationship in our lives and we are griped with the fear of loosing that person or that partner or mate that we cherish the most.

fearfulness

That person that is precious to us most times is our partner or mate but sometimes it could be someone else like: friends , our kids and anyone that brings value and happiness to us. Sometimes that precious gift or mate in our lives has brought us joy and happiness which comes with understanding .  We have this fear of losing our mate due to the fact that a lot of funny things happen this days which sometimes do not have any explanation and does not really make any sense but still we are overwhelmed with being afraid for loss, even if our friends, partners, colleagues, kids are there for us.

fear of loss

Life sometimes can be full of surprises and tricks which is beyond our comprehension or understanding, but our greatest wish is that we love and cherish that mate or partner or friend that has brought us joy and happiness one way or the other.  Overcoming the concern of Loss with fear of losing goes a long way and it takes a lot of determination and effort to get to that cross road of dedication and determination not to lose as far as your relationship is concerned.  You should ask yourself this question “What am I afraid of losing?”.  A strong and powerful relationship with more effort will thrive and remain strong always. Sometimes we cant figure out what is making us insecure and fearful, sometimes fear of breakup and losing your partner can be very tasking and stressful because your mind is not at rest.

fear of being alone

It is always good to deal with fear by discussing with your partner and the best way to go about it is:

  • Tell your partner how you feel and let them know what is your reason for being  fearful.
  • It is wise to listen to what your partner have to say about their fears and both of you can deliberate and try  to come up with a solution to the problem at hand.
  • You need to understand that the fears that your partner has might trigger yours but you have to be steadfast.

how to make relationships work

Making relationships work

How do we make relationships work?, hmmm! it takes the grace of God and a lot of good notion including patience understand and perseverance and most relationship have stress and crisis, so making sacrifice for that relationship will go a along way, but it is always worth the while if properly applied, there are so many information, prompts and advice out there and sometimes they could be reliable and sometimes it is not worth accepting because they look like junk automatically means it is not a good advice and it is not worth reading because they are most times contradicting and confusing. The unfortunate thing is that most information given is one-sided and   does not apply to everybody because of the fact that different problems needs different solutions and i am being brief about what advice I can give about making a relationship work. There are some elements of truth about stability in a good relationship.  Some factors that make relationships work are:
How to Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It

built on trust

  • Trust: A good, healthy and loving relationship relies on trust and faith in whomever you are dealing with which includes marriages and others, for without trust, chaos, confusion and pestilence will arise in that relationship and from a layman’s point of view, a relationship without trust is like telephone without service, which is almost like a relationship without a good foundation.  lack of trust can lead to you checking on him all the time believing in what you imagine which could be baseless. lets say he is away on a conference, you are there worried about what he or she is doing and who they are with and all kinds of thought will be flowing through your mind.  Unnecessary insecurities due to lack of trust will lead to constant quarrel and commotions at home which if looked critically could end up driving both of you apart instead of getting close. I get it, there has been a bad experience about a past relationship. but we need to forget about our past and move on or else you will have trust issue in your relationship which you need to avoid.

Can A Person Make Too Much Money? How Much Is” Too Much”?

 What Do We Understand As too Much Money? And how Much Is “Too Much”

Everybody have different desires, as we all know human wants are insatiable, but the wish for money is what we all have. The wish for little money can still lead to wish for more and sometimes some people are always satisfied with what they got and some are not.  Too much money can have different meaning to different people, depending on our opinion about what too much money could mean. Everybody wants a good thing and money is one of them and I don’t contemplate there is anything like too much for anything good. Any money put into good use for the benefit of others and you, are never too much.  The good thing about money is that it helps in taking care of yourself and others; it is very useful for charity when you have excess of it and you can never be satisfied with what you have because our wants and needs are not stable so we will always have the wish to have more money.  When we have a lot of money we want to give to charity, want to buy assets and want to enjoy ourselves and due to this, our want in lieu of money cannot stop

I don’t know what your opinion is or what you think about having money or more money but for me I cannot stop having the wish for more money because of my needs at all time and I also have the wish to help others and I believe we can never stop wanting or looking for more like Oliver twist who is always looking for more. From my opinion and believe to have excess is better than struggling for money.  So I will rather say there is nothing like “too much money”.  It is difficult deciding exactly what “too much money” really is. Money is a gift to all and it visits whomever it wishes to bless in abundance, but whatever money you have you have to learn to use it well for your own benefit and to the benefit of all. The greatest and most important way of spending money is to use it to bless others who are lacking and in need.

lot of money

too much money

I don’t think anybody can make too much money for the money is not enough no matter how much you have made, for all the days of our lives we will keep having the wish for more money and we cannot really decide what too much money is because our opinion of what “Too Much money” is different from each other  and what could be enough depends on different people. The thing is if you think you have a lot of money, you will be craving to have more because you are not satisfied with what you have and feel you should work hard for more because of  our human nature and the feeling that money will solve our entire problem. What goes around comes around comes around. Sometimes I want to compare money to the food we eat because no matter how much food we have eaten, when we are hungry, we always want more.  Looking at it critically can money be too much or enough for those that do not have food to eat or shelter over there head?  When we have a lot of money, it is better to think of what we will do with it to the advantage of everybody including ourselves. There are people who have money and still make a lot of donation to charity and there are others who have money, but have given nothing in return. From my opinion when you have excess money, you need to give to the lives of others who are in need, and then all your effort would be highly appreciated.
