01. 1-Year Blog Anniversary - Dec 28, 2013 1:38:00 PM
It's been long time since I didn't write anything, because I've been busy with a lot of things, but now I'm back! I decided to write this article now, because I have a good reason for that! This blog just turned One Year since it exists and has over 20,000 visitors:-) This is great and I'm very happy that I've reached until here, thanks to you my readers!

Honestly, when I started writing on this blog, I didn't know anything about blogging. My cousin Rody, was the one who was telling me all the time: ''Cris, if you like to write, you must have your own blog and write there, how everybody is doing these days.'' So, I thought about her advise and decided to give a try. Now, I can say that I like blogging very much and I really enjoy it :-)

I'm glad that my articles were useful for some people and entertaining for others. Through this blog I've met some nice people and I learned so many things. It was a good experience for me:-)
For the New Year 2014 I wish to write more articles and to get more visitors and loyal readers. Happy New Year my dear friends!:-)

02. THE TRUTH ABOUT MONEY - Jul 17, 2013 4:59:00 PM
Why only some people are getting rich while others starve?
In recent years money has been devalued by 680%. There is so much money in the world that if we take out all the money from the bank and spread throughout the earth, would get a layer of 10 cm. Money--the world's blood, has become water.

Money is power and energy. In order to attract money, first you have to get back with your mother, sister, grandmother and wife.

Money cannot come to that one who is not ready to become a millionaire. Therefore you need to understand what you mean by the word wealth. You must learn to receive but also to give. Ask yourself why so many multi-millionaires are doing charity intensively?

If we give 50% from the money we get for a good deed, we will always have money. But if we spend 100% on us, then eventually they will go from you. The money that remained must be divided into 3:
25%-for the rainy days
10%-to help your relatives in need
15%-to spend for us

The main rules for getting wealth are:
1. Keep clean the main places where you live, like the kitchen, the bedroom and the corridor.
2. Don't spend money on first day you receive them. Put them in a safe or in a box and only the second day you can spend an amount not too big.
3. The wallet must be red. Arrange the 500 banknotes separately from banknotes of 100. Also, put them length-ways. Take photos out and what you have in your wallet; just leave the bank cards and money.
4. Count your money with clean hands and only in the morning, because if you count them in the night,  money goes away from you.
5. To get rich demand or borrow money from a rich person and keep them unchanged. The money of rich people or rich countries attract wealth.
6. When you do what you love, the money will come definitely.
7. If money starts to come from somewhere you should not change the sphere of activity or try to open other doors.

03. WHAT TO TO IF YOUR JEWELS GO BLACK - Jun 30, 2013 5:45:00 PM
As any Christian person, I used to wear around my neck a silver cross with different colored crystals. I bought it in a silver shop in Dubai with my amazing friend Leonora Osaigbovo. We almost got into a fight for it, because she loved it too:-) But then she said ''Okay Cris, you can have it.'' And from that day, I didn't like to take it off even when I'm taking shower.
Recently I noticed that the metal blackened. I had no idea why! So, I started to look for an answer and I found few interesting things about it.
When silver comes in contact with air(oxygen) it oxidizes or turns an iridescent black.Also, this signifies that the person's body chemistry may be changing or perhaps it's a result of reaction to the wearer taking more and more medication as they get older. Extreme heat and perspiration can cause a person acidity to rise above the threshold.Those that have lowers levels of ''acidity'' might wear jewelry and have no problems but once they have headaches and need to take tablets then their level of acidity will be taken over the threshold which causes the wearer to make the jewelry go black. 
Other reasons might be higher levels of stress, going through hormonal changes in women. Also when youngsters go through that ''acne'' stage they can cause their jewelry to go black.
Some might notice that they've been wearing jewelry all their life and all of a sudden they turn it black or dark.Sometimes just leaving jewelry in a box for a long time turns it black.
Blackened silver is one of the hottest trends in jewelry today. But I like the silver to be shiny. And to remove the black color from my jewelry I found two great and very easy tricks:1. Place your silver jewelry into a container( put a flat piece of aluminium foil in the bottom of it) and then cover them with bi-carb. Pour boiling water over the top of the jewelry and you'll see the black ''fizz'' out. Then rinse with cold water and dry your silver with a silver cloth. If the black hasn't gone add a little more bi-carb on your silver and do it again. The bi-carb reacts with the aluminum foil to dissolve the black tarnish on the jewelry. The boiling water assists in the process. Once it's clean rinse your jewelry thoroughly in cold water and dry with hair dryer.2. Clean your jewelry with toothpaste, using an old toothbrush. Then rinse with cold water.

I hope this article will help you:-)

04. TITUS SPINU - Jun 1, 2013 8:22:00 PM
Today is 1st of June 2013 and as we know it is Children’s Day. From the morning I thought about my sweet and cute nephew-Titus Spinu. I was so curious, what is he celebrating today- Children’s Day or his Birthday? Well, let me explain. Two days before, it was the Birthday of  his father and Titus told his mother that he wants to celebrate his Birthday next, right after his father’s Birthday. She told him that his Birthday is in July and they are going to celebrate Children’s Day very soon, but Titus didn’t agree with that. He said that he wants a party for his Birthday, with cake and gifts and clowns. He was too upset because all the children from his kindergarten already celebrated their Birthdays but he didn’t.
Titus, will turn 4 years old on 20th of July and in present he’s going to kindergarten. He lives with his parents in Chisinau, the capital of Republic of Moldova but he loves to travel a lot. But he has a problem-he doesn’t like to sleep anywhere else, apart from his bed at home.

Almost every child start saying the first word mama, but Titus, did the opposite-he said tata (from Romanian-’’father’’) at 6 moths, and then he said mama at 8 months. Now, he has a perfect diction and he’s very smart and ingenious.
His hobbies are: playing with different toys, playing games on the computer, making sport with his parents (riding bicycle, swimming, to ride the scooter, and ride the sleigh in winter at the mountain) and watching cartoons.Looks strange to me, but at his age, Titus is very fond of fashion. He loves to wear elegant clothes, like black suit, especially with bow-tie.
Books are another passion of him. He got a big collection of children books and encyclopedias for kids.Recently he appeared in the magazine for kids ’’Odorasul’’, where he was the groom and his colleague from the kindergarten, was the bride.

At the end I would like to mention, that Titus is a very good and lovely child, who listen his parents, who like to learn everyday something new and who is bringing joy in our family J

05. COMPETITION OR COOPERATION? - May 7, 2013 9:08:00 PM
If you want to be good: be competitive. If you want to be the best: Cooperate!
It is said that we can't have success as long as there isn't competition; any product loses its value if it's not compared with other and therefore one of the most important business practices to reach the top brings up the competition. And not just business acquaints us with it; a study by a prestigious U.S. university showed that 85% of ways for the award of marks is based on competition: quizzes, games, tests, etc. In other words we are taught to depend on competition as the only source of motivation to get a good result. But up to what point exactly is effective competition?

It is not hard to imagine what would happen in a world where all people would follow than the personal interests of everyone. Such a world would pretty much resemble wilderness ''natural state'' described by Thomas Hobbes (1588- 1679) in his famous book Leviathan. Having a pessimistic view of human nature, Hobbes believes that, through his native heritage, man is being governed by aggressive instincts, anytime minded to attack with extreme cruelty toward peers to satisfy all his desires immediately.

Competition brings out the best in us. Competition builds character; it strengthens our self-esteem. However, the possibility of being humiliated is always present in competition. Losing can be so frustrating that it can bring about aggression.

Psychologist Dr. Robert Anthony said "we are here to create, not to compete," which helps us to understand that to achieve our goals, to truly succeed, you need first of all to cooperate.

What is cooperation? Cooperating means, according to explanatory dictionary, working together with someone, to collaborate, working in common. It implies mutually agreed-upon goals and possibly methods, instead of working separately in competition, and in which the success of one is dependent and contingent upon the success of another.

Cooperation and competition are important forces in today's world and social psychologists are attempting to understand how groups, and even nations, can learn to increase cooperation.

We can choose to cooperate, not compete. I believe that will make you a better competitor, you will perform better, and you will have more fun.
Yet big business, the educational system, the health-care community, and most parents continue to encourage competition, almost totally neglecting the power of cooperation.

Furthermore, researchers have shown that too much competition may cause poor health. And, not surprisingly, cooperation increases creativity. Unfortunately, most people are not taught cooperative skills.
People who are cooperative and help others also experience a type of ''high'', which might better be described as calmness or sense of freedom from stress. They tend to feel good.

Although there's no doubt that a cooperative environment increases the number of ideas, improves the quality of the outcome, and facilitates a better working environment, cooperation must be done in such a way as to protect the integrity of the project at hand.
In conclusion--which works better, competition or cooperation? The answer, without equivocation, is cooperation. Cooperation is ''the royal road to success''.

06. EASTER IN MOLDOVA - Apr 30, 2013 9:58:00 PM

The Easter holiday is a very special event for all the Christians and it’s been always my mom’s favorite holiday. Happy Easter!
I don't know how is to celebrate this beautiful day in other country in the world, that’s why today I would love to tell you how we celebrate it in my country—Moldova.
Easter is the most sacred holiday of the Christian calendar, followed by Christmas. Every year Easter is celebrated in spring. The meaning of the Easter represents the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Seven weeks before Easter, every Christian is fasting (he must refrain from eating meat and dairy dishes), take care of his soul through acts of giving and charity. In this period every family is concerned about general cleaning—both the house and the whole household, to celebrate Easter in a clean environment. People renew their wardrobe for Easter, same as the earth dress new greenery and flowers.
For Easter, Christians dye red eggs. They are preparing other dishes as well, such as: baked lamb, roast lamb, sausages, and various salads. According to tradition in Moldova on Holy Thursday, housewives bake bread with cheese and sponge cake.
The night of the resurrection, believers go to church for religious service and holy the Easter dishes. Foods brought to the church in this night are a symbol of rebirth and fertility.
Arriving home, before they sit at the table, Christians are washing with fresh water, in which they put a red egg, a white egg and few coins, ’’to be clean, healthy, and rich all year round’’.
When they seat at the table, the Christians don’t eat before saying the words ’’Christ is risen!’’ The answer ’’truly he is risen!’’

07. ''IT WASN'T MY CHOICE'' BY CRISTINA TURCAN - Mar 26, 2013 3:30:00 PM

Today, I want to share a good news with all of you-MY NOVEL ''IT WASN'T MY CHOICE'' IS FINALY ON SELL ON AMAZON.COM!!!:-)Yeah, that's such a release and happiness after the long journey of writing the book. I was dreaming about this moment since very long time, but I never imagined that it will be that much work to write a novel and to prepare it for sell. Thanks God I achieved one of my dreams:-) My friend, Leonora Osaigbovo, who is a writer as well, was telling me all the time: 'Cris, every day your book is not on Amazon, you lose money! You have get it out and put your book on sell!'

When I finished writing the novel, I had to find an idea for the cover design of the novel and I decided to make it very simple and mysterious. So, on the old cover I had two red apples on a white background. Of course the two red apples were having a deep meaning and everybody could take them as :two choices or two persons, or two places etc. But, I don't want to talk about the meaning of the old cover, because now the novel has a new beautiful cover. Why did I decided to change it? Well, because few people told me to do that, saying that the book looks like a diet book or a book for cooking. And, obviously I didn't want that; I din't want to confuse people, that's why I had to look for a new designer to design for me a new cover.I was lucky to find a great designer and artist, called Ludmila Bouros, from Republic of Moldova, who designed the new cover the way I wanted. She was very patient working with me and at the end she gave me the cover i had it in my mind. Hopfully now, everybody will understand that it's a novel and it's a contemporary romance, set in Dubai. And for people who are curious if the novel is inspired from my life in Dubai, I will say-YES!:-) For those who want to have an idea about what the novel is about, read the resume on my previous article about this book:

By this way, I would like to thank to the FirstEditing Company from England, for the professional editing of my book. David, the editor who did the great editing of my novel, is amazing and very professional editor. It was a pleasure working with him!

Before Amazon, the novel came out as first eBook in English language on, were you can find it in Mobi (Kindle) and ePub format at eBooks/ Literature and Fiction category. Here is the link for those who want to get a copy:
And I want to say loudly to everyone that the novel is out now on, as eBook in Kindle format. Get your copy right now:
At the end, I want to thank first to my family-mom, sister, brother and brother in law for their support and for believing in me. Also, I would love to thank to all my friends and all the people who showed me support, love and apreciation. I'm very grateful to all of you and hope do not disapoint you ever!

In the busy lifestyle of today, I’m facing problems focusing on my main goals. I keep distracting myself all the time and forget what the priorities of my life are. Distraction of work, home, friends, socializing, events and everything else constantly compete for my attention and dedicated time. It takes time to stay focused and achieving our goals and it’s so easy to fail. As a result we often give up and think our goal is unachievable.
I love people who have goals in life. Means they are fighters, ambitious, and want to achieve something in their life. Obviously, I met plenty of people who don’t have goals in life, they are happy with their job or car, the country they live in, and they don’t want anything more. Wow, that’s unbelievable for me and I don’t even want to be friend with such people. So, this article is definitely not for them!
Most of the people like to set up a list of goals at the beginning of every year. Well, I do it twice: at the beginning of the year and on my birthday, in the morning. This is fun and is the first step in making a significant progress on those goals. First of all, you have to understand what you want your goals to be, before starting doing something!There can be many reasons for our waning interests, such as not seeing visible progress as quickly as we’d like, so we begin to feel that our efforts are a waste of time. Or we feel confused about the steps we need to take to make our dream a reality.

Since this is a common problem for many people, I’m going to offer some helpful tips to re-fuel your fire:

            Concentrate on 1- 3 goals. Pick 1-3 goals, which are the most important to you, and stick to them. Don’t bother yourself with other goals, until these goals are achieved.In this way, you’ll make much more progress, compared to when you juggle across 4-7 goals and make little progress in them.

Create a vision board. Creating a vision board helps you to visualize your end goals more clearly, which definitely will inspire you to take consistent action. Get the pictures which represent your goals and dreams; you can cut them from magazines or print them from the internet. Then stick them to a board and put it in your bedroom or your office, so you could see them every day. Every time you see the board, it motivates you and reminds you to take action so as to move forward.
Create a plan. Build your plan for reaching your goal. Your plan becomes your road map and helps you determine the best course to follow.
If you just set a huge goal, it can be discouraging- especially when you don’t achieve it after some time. When that happens, some people may procrastinate on the goal altogether. That’s why, if you have a plan worked out for your goal, it becomes easier to stick to it. All you have to do is to follow the actions you have planned for the day. Usually, I write down the plan of the next day, right before to go to sleep. So, I’m clear about the plans for the following day and when I sleep, my brain can think about new strategies.Most of us are great at planning, but not so great at taking the actions! ;-)
Be clear on why you’re pursuing the goals. If you keep giving up on your goals halfway, perhaps you were never serious in them to begin with. For me, if I’m really serious about a goal, I’d never give up on it. Write about the ways it will improve your life and make you feel more fulfilled. Then make sure to read this description every day, even more than once a day, if you need to. Keep that vision STRONG in your mind.Do not make a goal out of something you do not have already as a great passion in your life. Use something that inspires you and gives you certainly and confidence. Then plan it much bigger and go for it!
 Discover a purpose to help drive you. Have you ever thought that a purpose is like a driving force just like fuel for a car? Without a reason that is big enough, you will hardly make it.
Is it the million dollars you have in mind or is it the boat you can buy if you accomplish the goal?
Have goal buddies. Goal buddies are people who share similar goals with you. They help to remind you about your goal, spur you when you feel unmotivated, give you new ideas on how to achieve your goal, keep you on track among others. Your goal buddies can be your friends, or people whom you meet with similar interests.
Measure  your progress. Record your daily progress. This can tell us if we are on track or if we need to make adjustments to either our plan or activities. You need to measure your progress on a regular basis as it gives you some control.
 Minimize distractions. Get rid of as much temptation as possible that deviates from your focus on your goal. If for example your goal is to exercise more and you have identified watching TV as a distraction, don’t turn on the TV until you have achieved the tasks relating to your goal. Saying Yes to your big goals means that you must say No to other things. Decide what can or should be eliminated from your schedule. This might be socializing, spending time on social media, getting caught in funny videos on YouTube, or watching television.

Work your goals into your daily plan. Do something towards achieving your goals every day. The best way to achieve your goals and maintain your focus is to do something that will make it happen each and every day. Even if it’s only 15 minutes each day, it is better than not doing any goal related activity at all. Give your goal daily attention and you’ll remain more focused and at a better chance of achieving your goal. It's even more important to keep a clock beside while you are working, to tell how much time is left to complete each high priority task, same as Facebook engineers and designers are doing.
It’s now known to most people that Thomas Edison failed 999 times before he succeeded in inventing the lamp in the 1000th trial. But what if Thomas wasn’t focused on his goals? :-)All successful people know that reaching success is a matter of trying and trying until they get what they want.If you want to be successful you must focus on goals, in business or personal affairs.
What goals are you working on right now? Are you staying on track toward them, or are you struggling? Let me know your thoughts and tips in the comments…

09. VALENTINE'S DAY - Feb 11, 2013 5:33:00 PM
Valentine's Day is the day of lovers in the Western tradition, which is celebrated on February 14. It's not celebrated on a large scale, but many people spend this day in a romantic way with the life partner or send a card to a secret love. In Slovenia a proverb says that St. Valentine brings the key of roots, so that on February 14, plans and flowers start to grow. It is also said that birds are getting married on this day.
Certainly, only recently started to be celebrated as the day of love. Day of love is traditionally on March 12, the day of St. Gregor.

Couples exchange gifts such as: chocolates, greeting cards and usually a flower bouquet. Although, on a day deemed by many people to be a fake holiday, it can seem unnecessary to spend a fortune on declarations of love, when you could show your affection every day.
So here are a few suggestions that could help you make the day special:

The card

Making your own card is far more personal and romantic. Don't be nervous if you are not naturally artistic; you can create anything from a collage to a funny Photoshop image to express your feelings. Fill it with a poem (silly or serious), a romantic quotation, or an in-joke for an even more intimate touch.

The present

A sentimental gift such as a filled photo album or handpicked collection of poetry can strike the perfect note. If you're not a sentimentalist, it doesn't mean that your only option is to be unoriginal: if your musical, compose a melody; if you are literary, write some verse; if you are tactile, give a massage. But, if you do decide to purchase a present after all, then please visit this online shop here, where you can find a wide range of beautiful gifts for your lover:

The dinner

The way to a man's heart is supposedly through his stomach, and it's not unusual for women to be seduced by a little wining and dining as well. Home cooking can be a great success, but if you are not comfortable with cooking, then you can dazzle your date with something more complex, reserving a table at a restaurant for example!
Add to this a well-presented table with a classic single rose and it would be hard to go wrong. Don't forget about candles and romantic music!

The little extras

Happy Valentine's Day! :-)

10. TO BE EMPLOYED IS STUPID! - Feb 4, 2013 4:50:00 AM
Money is one of the most powerful internal motivations that every person on this planet has innate in him.
Money represent: the social status, prosperity, security, safety tomorrow, everything about our place in society, the comfort of the day and our lifestyle.

I want to make you understand that right now you are probably wasting yourself.
The age and experience are no more obstacles in the way of our prosperity on this planet. The biggest impediment in the way of prosperity is actually, our lack of education. And when I say-lack of education, I don't say that you haven't been to a fancy school or you don't like to read, but I say that in this financially field, you are uneducated.

When you want to make money more than you do now, first thing would be good to do is to find a good model for you. Watch someone you like the way he is making money. It would be advisable to find someone or even more, that you admire and like the way they make money. Tell yourself: ''Okay, I would like to make my money like that!''.
And step two, very, very important- don't look at those people what they do now, when they already have money and success, look what they did at first, because you are a beginner right now. You are a beginner, you are at zero, you are probably one person. Do not look at a company, which has 50-100 employees, do not look at  Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg, because they have a huge success. Look at what Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberk were doing when they were alone at first, working in a garage or home, or even with two fellow students. That's what you have to look at, if you are in the beginning!

The big mistake that most beginners make, is to look at Steve Jobs-10 rules to succeed in business, because he wrote those rules when already had 300 million dollars. That was the time and moment when he got those conclusions. It's fine to see them and understand them with his long experience, but you have to realize that you can not apply them, because you don't understand them experimentally. You have never experienced those things and have to live on your turn. And then you look at your models when they didn't have anything.

You've probably heard of Robert Kiyosaki right? I recommend you to read his books. It's very, very good to start your financial education. If you invest 3 to 6 months of your time to read certain books and materials in this field, you could triple your income that you have today, I guarantee. If you do the right thing, leaving aside what not, I'm sure you can change your financial life in a very short time.

So, Robert Kiyosaki says that there are 4 quadrants of money:

First quadrant is- the employee.The second quadrant is- the freelancer.The third quadrant is- the entrepreneur.The fourth quadrant is- the investor.I'll briefly explain you what it means to be hired. That means to sell your time for money, you are committed to a company and you have a boss or even more. So, you sell your time and partially-your skills, but basically you sell your time, you get paid per hour with a very, very small amount of money. I'm telling you this, no matter what salary you have, it is very small. Any employee in this world right now is wasting his time and life, energy or even health. He is giving his talent and skills for a bargain. They sell those hours of life instead to sell the results.The experts are selling their results not their time.

Self-employed is a wonderful step- you are a doctor, lawyer, psychologist, etc. Here you control your time and you decide how much to work, and that's why you call yourself a freelancer and is wonderful. This is better than to be employed. You have more or less control over your life and on your lifestyle. But here's a small problem too, as a freelancer you are again limited. If you get sick, you can't make money. If you do not work, you do not make money. And all of us, we know that we can not work continuously and then we don't make money, and then we are in trouble if we don't have some savings. Things can happen and as a freelancer you're limited to a certain number of people with whom you can work, for example as a dentist within 24 hours you can just get a number of people and you never going to be able to prosper financially and make as much money you want.

For that, we have quadrant 3, which is the entrepreneur. The entrepreneur can be self-employed, but found solutions to automate  what he is doing and to scale it. To scale means that you can change   your business figure. I mean if you're a dentist and you have a certain number of clients per day, and if you still had two partners to give them 5 of your clients for a commission, let's say, then you've scaled your business. In that moment you don't work, they work and you make money automatically.
Entrepreneur can be anyone of us and many people get scared and say-''wow business'', ''wow entrepreneur'', ''business is not for me, I don't have talent for it!''.

The fourth quadrant is- investor. After making a lot of money as a freelancer or entrepreneur, invest your money. For example, you give your money to an entrepreneur for a certain percentage and that's it-money work for you!

Now, I want you to think where you find yourself and where you want to reach, and if you don't have anything, you have to think how to become an employee or self-employed. If you are employed or self-employed how do you become an entrepreneur? And if you are an entrepreneur how to become an investor, to make enough money to have a lifestyle exactly how you want it? After all why you work? What for we make so much money? We make them, so we could live the life according to our values.

For example, I value the freedom, do not depend on anyone ever, doing what I love in life. If today I feel like going to Paris to drink a coffee with a croissant and come back in the same day, then I'll do that without giving explanations to anyone.
That's what makes me wake up in the morning and make money. Others do it to support their family or to sleep quiet in the night, thinking that tomorrow he has money.
Think what your values are and what lifestyle you want to have, and then how do you go from one level to another.

Now, I want to tell you three major steps, which you can quickly implement:

1. Discover your talent and passion, what you're good at and what you enjoy doing. It is very important to love what you do. Your passion will drive you and will help you get through all the hardships of life. If there is no passion, when hardships come, you'll surrender!

2. It's time to develop your passion and become an expert. And again, people freak out and say: ''Oh, but I'm not an expert!''. Believe me, when you know one topic well, you should not become a world expert. For one near you, you are an expert. If for example you have a garden and grow in it tomatoes, cucumbers and other vegetables and comes one, who has no idea how to grow vegetables, then you are an expert for him.
It's good to develop these skills and become experts. Why? Because people are willing to pay experts.

3. Value the skills and expertise that you've developed them. How do you do that? Exchange! People will pay for the problems they have in life, whether it is health, love, money, or lifestyle. We all have problems and all buying few things: services or products. We all do! It is important for you to combine your passion and talent with skills that you develop them, and then know how to capitalize and start living from this.

To become an entrepreneur in the field in which you are passionate, begin with:

1. Attitude and mentality. It is very important to develop your attitude and mentality in the financial field. Many people get scared and say: ''I don't want to be a freelancer or entrepreneur!''. That's your attitude and mentality!
You were taught wrong by parents, society, teachers, that is important to have a job and is better to be employed. That's the dumbest thing, because you are wasting as employee, selling your time, when we all have a talent in us, why not make money with the results you can give to the world? It's very important to believe in yourself! Believe that you can have a great lifestyle and you can make as much money you want, doing what you love everyday and being extremely good at what you love to do everyday. There is no limit to how much money you can make. The limit is on your hard work, for how good you are, your expertise, by how well you develop yourself, how fast can be your evolution, but the power is in you and this is great! But as an employee, you have no power, you can be fired at any time, the business may fail at any time, and you can't take decisions. 
We as human beings are not made to be slaves, to be employed! We are meant to explore and capitalize our full human potential.

2. Choose the right niche. What is niche? Niche can be a domain, a product that you choose and in that field you have to become an expert. Find a service or product that you can offer and people are willing to pay for it.
Depending on the area that you've chosen, and your expertise, there are products that you can provide- tangible products, electronic products, products of all kinds, in which you are expert.

3. Marketing. Many people misunderstand marketing. They think it's something separated from the rest of life or a discipline where you have to specialize. But, believe me, we all do marketing. When you open your mouth and talk to a friend of yours, you do marketing. You sell an idea, trying to convince a person about something. But if you are not educated in marketing, you make stupid marketing. 
You sell yourself everyday. In seduction or love, you're selling yourself, talking about yourself and showing your bright side, and trying to show that you are a quality person, for other to want you as a partner, for example.
When you go to an interview and talk about you, you sell yourself! When you go to a customer and you are saying that you are entrepreneur, you are selling your product.
Everyday, we do marketing. It is an illusion to think that marketing has nothing to do with you. Believe me, when you open your mouth  and through your actions, you do marketing. And if you don't know what you are doing, you probably do bad. That's why, regardless of any area of life, it is very important to know marketing.

4. Learn to focus. We live in a world, where everything is a distraction. You are bombarded with information of all kinds, it's a total madness! We don't know what to do, what to read, where to go, where to develop our skills.
It is important to remove everything that distracts your attention and at least a few hours everyday do what brick by brick, build something, because after six months, one year or five years to see the fruits of your work, to see that you built something.

5. Right actions. A lot of things that you consider important and urgent, are not really important and urgent. You can leave them aside, and nothing happens and no one dies. It is important to understand that productive assets that will help you make money in the end. Making money, you release your time and life, so you could enjoy more of life, travel, family, comfort. Therefore you must understand what are those actions made daily, which will take you fast to success.

6. Right people, entourage. It is extremely important to surround yourself with people that support you, and you support them along the way. You have to make a team and manage to gather the people  to the right place to be and you prosper and they.

12. Be The Best On Marketing Online - Jan 24, 2013 11:16:00 PM

Today, the Internet Marketing is the best tool you must know how to use to make money. Thanks to the Internet, you can now start earning money online by launching your website, getting instant access to customers, and almost immediately start making a living online.
Marketing is what will make the difference between being a poor expert and a rich expert. We have people who have a passion, who are very good at what they do, experts, but very poor. A professor, a scientist is full of knowledge, but the wind blows their pockets. Why?First of all, because they are too arrogant, they imagine that being experts in their field is not their responsibility to send their message to the world and to tell their story, to sell their products and services. Many experts are afraid to sell. They believe that sales and marketing are second hand activities, but they don't know that we do marketing from morning to evening. When you tell to your best friend that you like a certain movie, you do marketing to that movie for free, and your friend goes and buy the DVD, and of course someone else is making money, thanks to you. Sometimes, we girls love to talk about clothes, brands, restaurants and because some of the girls like to always follow the what's new in fashion, they go and buy those branded clothes or perfumes etc. So, this is why designers have a lot of money, what to do? women like to talk and like to dress.
Nobody escapes marketing. Whether you practice it or others practice it on ourselves, but often are mutual. When you understand and accept that, you start to learn a little about marketing, and then you start to like it. You realize that it’s not scaring but rather is your most precious ally for the rest of your life.Marketing helps you take your treasure, talent, vocation and skills and present them to the world.
Let’s see now the essential components of marketing:

1. Find a niche.
What that means? 
Niches are areas where people have problems and pain, have dreams, goals and aspirations for which they need troubleshooting and solutions. People are willing to pay more quickly and more, only when the pain, the problem and the desire are forcing them to get the solutions.
There are few niches in which almost no way to fail:
How to make money online, Fitness, love and health.

Would you pay money if you know that you can have one of them fixed the way you want? I'm sure you will! Everyone would pay, just to have the solution.

For example, a good niche can be the diet recipes, because all the girls and women want to look great and have an amazing body. Nobody wants to be fat, everybody wants to loose fat. Like anyone else, I want to look good as well, but my metabolism is not very good and if i don't watch what i eat, i can gain weight quickly. Since i was a teenager until now, I'm always on diets, and now I'm a professional in this area, that's why i decided to create a blog about diets only, and to help others to get in shape fast. So, go to this blog and check it out:
You can always make money from what you know best or what you love more. Think about this!

I know that Internet Marketing is a challenge, I understand that. There are so many niches, so many different way to market, so many different way to make money online, that sometimes is becoming very confusing and you don't know what to do, but try to do and where to start. But try to do the best you can with what you got and always stay focused! Things will happen for you! But don't forget, pick a niche where people are spending money everyday and you'll definitively make a lot of money.

Once you picked your niche, try to realize what problems or issues people have in that niche. Write down four or five problems those people might have. Then try to figure out the solutions for those problems and then market that! You have to market the solutions to those problems and that's how you get people attracted to you, that's how you make money!

2. The content
This is the main thing that you have to offer it online. Content is the written articles, mp3 or video. Content is the ability and your products or your services. All you have to offer is called content. And on the Internet, the content is king.

If you do everything right, but your content is poor or mediocre, you will die on the Internet.
If you do nothing else than an extraordinarily good content, you'll get rich and famous.

Let's say, I want advice on how to fix my relationship which is dying. So, I buy two different products- a book and a course with an excellent marketing, which are promising the moon and that will change my life. But after I bought them, I see that they didn't help me a lot.
Then by chance i get to a person who provides a free pdf- how to solve my problems in relationships, and it works. For that, I will tell everyone I know about the expert who helped me. I will write about it on Facebook, Twitter, or I will mention about it on my blog.
I will also say that I was disappointed with the first two experts, who took my money, but didn't give me what they promised.
Thousands of people will do the same on the Internet.

Guess what happens to those who have a concrete marketing strategy, but poor content? Exactly! Will disappear!
What happens to that one who has excellent content that adds value and change lives? Will prosper!

Ideal is to have great content and a valuable marketing, but the content is the one that will make a difference in the end. If you have good content, the world is yours!

Think that everything you find on the Internet is content- movies, music, articles, tops, books, people singing, people giving solutions, etc. And the best content, get the prize every time!

3. Traffic
Internet traffic is another extremely important for your success. If you did the above steps, you'll get traffic. Traffic means- people who come to see your content.

The main source of traffic is Google. Google knows to look through your contents and tell those who look on Google if what you offer is good for them or not. 

Obviously there are many other sources of traffic:

FacebookYouTubeSkypeEmailPPC ( Pay Per Click)Solo Addsto give solutions and advice on forums or blogs and provide links to your contentto do link excenge partnerships, etc.Traffic is to your online business what blood is to your body!
4. ConvertMany beginners jump of joy, when they get traffic. The experts know that traffic is only the first step to success.After having people coming to see your content, you will have to convert them.
It's very important for you to convert your visitors in subscribers to your content. Get their e-mail and find a way to make them come back when you have new content. If you let visitors to come and go without doing anything, it may never come back again. The Internet is big, but the attention we have is less. If you didn't catch their attention, you've lost! Perhaps tomorrow they will forget about your blog or website.
Then, after you converted and registered your visitors, convert them to fans. They must like what you offer to them and they must gladly come back and recommend your content to others. 
Then after you earned the trust, get the relationship to the next level and make them become your clients.
Conversion path is: Visitor- registered- fan- client.
Success= Problem-Solution

13. How to deal with disappointments and sadness? - Jan 18, 2013 10:46:00 PM
Cristina Turcan is one from millions of people who is facing also disappointments from time to time and believe me, not less than you. I'm also a human being, with feelings and expectations. 
I get disappointed in many things and even people, most of the time, and that is true.
Like today, for example, I got disappointed in my mom, because she removed the Christmas tree, while I was sleeping in the morning, and I told her few days before that I want to keep the Christmas tree until the end of January, but she didn't care about what I want, so she did it as she wanted. But this is nothing, comparing with other disappointments we are getting in life, right?

There are moments in life, when we have a bad experience, maybe a divorce or losing a friend, or being the victim of theft or maybe failed relationships,or someone hurted your feelings, and in these moment the sadness is suffocating you and the disappointment  can make your nights white and your eyes wet. But in these moments, you are always alone, even with a thousand people around you, you are alone. In fact, you have the worst company in existence...pain.

You may be disappointed in a parent, your child, your spouse, a lover, an employer or job, an event, or in yourself. In any case, disappointment is the experience of sadness involving unfulfilled hopes or expectations. When you consider what might have been, in contrast to what exists in the present, you may experience disappointment.  

The reasons and sadness and tears are endless. There are moments, when you don't know what to do, when you don't know what decision to take and what is good for you or not. It's so hard, when you have to hide your sadness and your tears from the curious eyes, to whom you have to explain. How hard is to overcome the darkness of time... 

Disappoint, like shit, happens. None of us are strangers to it, of course. Disappointment is the most unpleasant feeling, a profound way in which sadness is experienced. I don't feel that I have any amazing tada! lessons to share with you-how to get past disappointments fast! But wait! Maybe, I do have some advices:

Don't let your hope run wild. It's terrible that feeling of letting go, because you can't do more or that acceptance of defeat. No matter what you lose, do not lose hope! It's the only thing that keeps us afloat no matter how deep are the waters in which we swim at the time.Don't make too many plans. You can talk about plans, a lot, but don't invest too much hope in them.Learn to channel your emotions and focus on something more useful. Watch a good movie, read a new book, go out with your friends to a coffee shop, not to a club and don't eat until explode!Let it out. Be like a child who will cry and scream or laugh, until it runs out and then he is ready genuinely to move on.Don't be artificial about how you feel. It will not last. Say ''I am disappointed ''. Recognize it! Being willing to say it starts to free up our hearts and moves us away from resentment and bitterness.Accept them. You will continue to be disappointed- that is a part of life, part of being human. This step is a lifelong challenge and fundamental to dealing with disappointment. I will be disappointed, I will disappoint, you will be disappointed, and you will disappoint. Life will be disappointing- but it will pass. Disappointment is a part of life, but all parts of life can help us grow.Be honest about your expectations. There is a reason why you are disappointed, and it's because your expectations weren't met. Maybe, it's just unrealistic to have that expectation on that particular person. Maybe they can't handle what you are putting on them, and you'll need to shift how you see the relationship.Find compassion in the midst of disappointment. If there is a person who disappointed you, there is an opportunity for you to develop compassion for this person. Perhaps, he or she behaved in ways that even he / she  would like to change. Maybe, this person is going through something in life that is difficult for him / her. Or possibly, he / she have experienced some challenges in his / her life that are preventing him / her from responding in ways that are loving or life-giving. At the same time, it's always helpful to look within and discover ways in which we have disappointed others in the past. In the same way that you want to be forgiven when you disappoint others, you now have the opportunity to extend grace to someone in your own life.Cry! People do not cry because they're weak, but because they feel. It's good for your soul to cry and to pull off the pain. And, after this you feel better.How do you feel now? Still confused? Sad? Cold? Afraid? It hurts? :-) You can't breath?You don't know how you feel yet? What to use- heart or head? 
Okay, then let me tell you something, which might really help you! Life does not end next to a broken relationship, a failed marriage, a friendship betrayed, or lost a job. Yes, we learned something from each, but I can say with my hand on mouse that we could do well without most of them. Time does not stand next to you, it just passes you. It's you and only you who have the strength to get up from the crash site and to look forward and not back.Looking at you, deep in your soul, you are the same! You haven't been stolen, maybe few tears and they have applied you an ''open heart surgery''. But you survived!!!
14. CROSS STITCHING - Jan 14, 2013 9:31:00 PM

Today I want to tell you about one old hobby of mine. I do it, since I was a teenager and I love doing it because is relaxing me and I put a lot of passion and love in it. I know that you’ll say that this hobby is for grandmothers and maybe in your opinion is an old fashion hobby, but I love it and I respect it, because is part of the art! I like to make beautiful things. Like this, the life is more exciting!This cute and creative hobby is called cross stitching. All right, now you know what I’m talking about, but maybe, you don’t know how it looks like, so, have a look at few of my works:
Teddy with beautiful flowers for you!

Fanar in the sea

Time to relax!


Teddy and the snowman


My mom’s favorite flowers


Cartoon's world


This thing is really enjoyable and the designs I’m using, I buy them from the market with all the tools. But most of the time I find schemes online or I take them from my favorite magazine - Cross Stitcher, which is No.1 Britain’s magazine in this area. This hobby of mine and of thousands of girls and women is not about counting crosses and following a scheme, is about being artistic and be surrounded by many colorful and magical creatures!

15. HOW TO DEAL WITH COMPETITION - Jan 10, 2013 11:05:00 PM
When more than one person wants the same thing, the result is competition. If you're a person who fears competition, you must let this fear go, because competition it not only inevitable, but is part of human nature.

‘’ Competition creates better products, alliances creates better companies.’’( Brian Graham)
Without competition, the world would be a lot less challenging, and even boring. Everybody would get everything that wanted without even trying, and appreciation level for these things would drop to an all time low. Most things then would be taken for granted.

People say that competition turns us into rivals and enemies. It does, to an extent. I don't ignore this fact, but I would never go out an intentionally hurt my opponent just to win such as Tanya Harding's attempt to break Nancy Kerrigan's kneecap so she could win the Olympic Medal.

When competition becomes too overwhelming for a person, people will go to the extent to do immature things such as forming secret allies with each other, breaking out in fights, or planning evil schemes. Some people deal with competition like this while others are simply cool about it.In my opinion, I think the best way to deal with competition is to not obsess over it and do the best that you can.
Everybody has gone through education and has competed for the top spot in their class so they can get into a good college, but it's usually the person who worries about other the people that ends up not doing so well in their grades. It's the person who just hones in and focuses their topic that gets the good grade.
As for job interviews, there's no point working yourself up because there are other people competing for the same job at the interview. Just prepare, and give the best interview that you can. Begin preparations early. Invest time and energy in knowing the nitty-gritty of the area of your work.  Better preparation gives confidence to meet the competition head on.

Here are five tips that I think will help you deal with competition:
1. Do not obsess over your competitors; this will only cause you to become more anxious, draw up fear, and then end up spiting at them when for the most part, they have done nothing wrong. Also, by worrying about them too much, you will end up doing nothing done!
2. Take your ego out of the equation; unless you are Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Bill Gates, or someone similarly famous, most likely, you are not going to be the best in the world at what you do. These people are rare but have worked their butts off to rise to the top. Instead of completely ignore our competitors, accept that there are others that are and will be better than you, that way you can precede to the next step.
3. Learn from your competitors; if somebody is doing better than you, instead of envying them, learn from them. When you become more open minded about your competitors and what they go through in order to stay at the top of their game, you'll become better at whatever you are doing also.
4. Improve your skills; whatever skill you are working at to get what you want, practice and make it better, better, and better. If you want to become better in basketball, practice for hours on just dribbling or shooting from various angles of the basketball court until most of your shots go in. Then increase the difficulty by having somebody guard you, stealing the ball from you, or blocking your shots and see if you can make the same results happen. Any other skill involves the same concept, competitors or no competitors; you must focus and practice at something in order to become one of the best at it.Do not get bothered by the power of your competitor.  Know their strengths and capacity; however depend upon your own ability and intelligence to deal with them. 
5.  The power  within you; When it comes to the will of wanting to out compete another person, you must realize there's only one person stopping you from doing so, and that is the biggest competitor all. Who is this person? That person is you. You're the only person who can overcome your emotions and stay disciplined until you become so good at something, that you won't even bother worrying about competition. But it is you, not your competition that has the power to do this.
So there you go. Five tips on how to deal with competition. Remember that in anything you want to have in life, if other people want the same thing, there's a good chance that you will have to compete with them in order to get it. Sometimes you'll be able to see your competitor’s right next to you, other times you may never see your competitors at all. But if you stay focused on just what you have to do and give it your best, you'll see that competition is not as frightening as it seems.
Competition exists everywhere. Competition cannot be avoided. It has to be dealt with.  Facing competition with courage and faith is essential to be successful. Facing competition for the sake of it, will not lead to higher satisfaction and growth.  It has to be taken in a positive spirit.

At the end, I want to say - be professional while dealing with competition! Do not doubt yourself; do not get pressurized by competition. Do not see it as a burden you have to bear.  Do not give up even before trying! Keep an open mind and be receptive; take ideas from experts and reliable people.  Also, have a positive opinion of yourself and do not underestimate your success and achievements.Utilize your strengths and abilities; harness on what you have best.  Develop a niche for yourself.  However, also be aware of other events that take place around you.  There are many innovations and developments that are taking place.Take the plunge when you see an opportunity; have a good strategy.  Planning and strategizing is very important in the face of tough competitionJ

16. Before making real money without being employed, find your vocation, passion and talent - Jan 4, 2013 2:31:00 AM

Each of us dreams of becoming financially independent, and for that is important to get rid of your current job and to start making real money!
I don't like the idea of having a boring job, a crazy boss and to work every day 8 hours or even more, doing the same thing every single day, and by the end of the month to get a small salary, not even enough for surviving.I know it's hard to quit a job with a stable income, which offers you security. But this security is just a mirage! Believe me, is not sure!

Today, you have the chance to change your lifestyle into one that maybe you are dreaming now.We enter into an economy where the rules from now 3-5-10-50 years does not apply anymore. Only the universal principles of success and prosperity remain the same, and...that's it. The new economy online, soon will become the first one.
I'm the kind of person, who likes to sleep in the morning, wake up whenever I want with the joy that the day is totally mine, do whatever I like and make enough money from my passions that can let me grow quickly in all areas.Today, you will find some of my story and those like me, who found passion and make money from it not only to never work for a boss, but to build a business empire online.
Let's start?
Internet is already full of ''make money online''. 95% of them, are waste of time. To click on all sorts of things, to fill up some forms, completing surveys are things wasting your time and stoping you from doing real things that work and could change your financial life.
Your goal is not to make 100 euros on the internet. Your goal is to have steady income doing what you are passionate about and to have a new lifestyle where you have time for you, family and loved ones, your hobbies, and especially to have money to maintain your new lifestyle.
The first step starts with one thing you should learn as early as the first years of school, but the social program with parents, teachers, education system and the media do not want successful people, financially free and have a nice lifestyle. Because these people will never accept to be obedient slaves to work long hours for little money and sell his soul for nothing.
What you hear in school is that you can not make money from what you love and you need a job and then in the remaining time you can do what you like.That's the biggest lie that can be removed instantly! Which people you admire from celebrities to ordinary people who are successful and you can find them on the internet?Are exactly the people, most passionate, people who have discovered the talent and vocation and live it fully. The richest men in the world are people who do everything with passion.
In the old education you were taught to obey authority so you can execute orders in the factory or office.The new education will teach you that your inner fire, your passion, is the greatest treasure you have available and your new lifestyle starts with this.
The mentality and our attitude was mocked and poisoned by the old models, but the old models are no longer successful. Don't listen to people with lack of results that put rubbish in your head.
You were born with a combination of personality traits that make you a unique person. You've got not one, but many talents. Discover them! Then train yourself and transform your talents in abilities. Become very good in that area that you are passionate about. Become and expert. Become the leader of a tribe that needs you and your experience and expertise.
There is one area where you could shine, to excel. Find out what it is, because it's your treasure which will bring you a lot of money without even focus on making money. Good luck!

17. New Year Superstitions - Dec 31, 2012 9:06:00 PM

New Year’s Eve, just as the first day of the year, are accompanied by certain superstitions which are transmitted from one generation to another. Underlying idea behind most of these superstitions is that events occurring on New Year’s Day set the pattern for the rest of the year.What is good to do on New Year’s Eve?
Make a wishIf you make a wish in New Year’s Eve, then it is likely to become true.
Wear new clothesThis would mean receiving more new garments during the year. Red clothing is preferred for New Year's Day since red is considered a happy color and is sure to attract for the wearer a brighter future. 
Make noisePeople believe that Evil One and his attendants and servants hate loud noise. So, scare them away by being as loud in New Year celebrations as possible. Church bells are rung at midnight for the same reason. 
Don’t keep debtsPay your bills and loans before New Year Eve, so you don't have any debt left for New Year. Moreover, don’t lend money on New Year’s Eve.
Have money in your pocketOn New Year’s Eve is good to have money in your pocket or to keep money in your hand. And the wineglass must be always full.
Avoid being aloneTry do not be alone on New Year’s Eve, because you’ll be alone all year. Be with your family or friends, but never alone.
Letting the Old Year outAt midnight, all the doors of a house must be opened to let the old year escape unimpeded. 

First footingFirst person, who will pass on the first day your doorstep, will influence you all year. If it’s a woman, then the New Year will not be very good. The brunettes bring luck and happiness, but the blondes and redheads bring bad luck.

18. What is a Flash Mob? - Dec 27, 2012 4:07:00 PM

Today, I want to talk about something very beautiful, very artistic and entertaining, which is the Flash Mob. Not so many people know what a flash mob is, but it’s good to know, in case you’ll see it by chance in one dayJ.
Flash Mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place; participants performing some unusual action for a short period of time (usually few minutes) and after that, the group spreads. The idea was transposed to reality in 2003 in America, and it wasn’t for a political, economic, religious purpose, which shows that flash mob cannot be used for profit. Flash mobs are organized via telecommunications, e-mails, and social media. 
Here is a sample of a Christmas flash mob, organized in the airport with elves, carolers, snowmen, sugar plum fairies and Santa Claus, himself, to make that moment a memorable evening.
The most important rules of the flash mob:
·        Action must be spontaneous and simultaneous. It is forbidden to draw the attention of the participants before the action.·        Should form the impression that the participants do not know each other and before the action, they should not show that they are preparing to do something unusual.·        All actions should be performed after a scenario.·        After the flash mob shouldn’t remain traces.·        All the actions must be carried out with all seriousness.·        After finishing, all the participants must immediately leave the place without showing that something special happened.·        Flash mob must be outside of media.·        To avoid conflicts with members of law and security, all the participants must have identity documents.·        The scenario have to be absurd, mysterious, not very visible and in any case not to cause laughter.
The purpose of the flash mob:
The participants of a flash mob not offer or receive money for participation. This occupation is voluntary. The participants can follow the same action for different purposes, like:·        Fun.·        To feel independent.·        To impress others.·        To test their skills in performing spontaneous actions in public places.·        Attempt to get new sensations.·        Feeling of belonging to a common action.·        New sensations emotional.·        To find new friends.
Some psychologists explain this by the fact that these people are bored of rational life. That’s why they seek to participate in something special that will bring new sensations in their lives.I chose some awesome and interesting samples of a flash mob, organized in different countries. Leave some comments if you like them or what you think about them. And by the way, have you ever participated in a flash mob?

19. Gus Takkale-author and professional speaker from Canada - Dec 25, 2012 4:03:00 AM
Few months ago, I met Gus Takkale in Dubai, through one friend of mine and we had a coffee together and a very nice chat. . He came to Dubai to promote his second book ‘’the road: a journey through the 5 C’s of change’’. It was a pleasure for me to meet such an interesting man and also to get a copy of his book with an autograph.
But, let me tell you more about him. Gus Takkale is the author of two books: ‘’The 5 C’s in Change’’ and ‘’ The Road: A Journey through the 5 C’s of Change’’ and a professional speaker. He was born in the UAE, but grew up in Canada.

During our conversation with Gus, I dared to ask him what is his biggest dream, and his response was prompt and short-‘’to change the world!’’. I smiled and I thought inside me-‘’he is crazy or he’s joking!’’ Then he started telling me that he wrote the books ‘’The 5 C’s in Change’’ and ‘’ The Road: A Journey through the 5 C’s of Change’’ with the same purpose-to change the world! He was very serious about it and determinate to do that. 
He is the president of Gus Takkale International (GTI), an organization that builds programs that empower people and position them for successful change. He travels the world to guide people on this journey of transformation and success.Gus is on a mission to change the world and he is doing that one person at a time.‘’To change the world, we need to start by changing ourselves.’’  (Gus Takkale)


I read this book expecting that I’ll learn and discover something great, something to help me to change my life. But the most important, I wanted to understand what those 5 C’s are and what was the meaning of  Gus’s autograph for me inside the book-‘’Cristina, live with PHP!’’So, finally after reading the book, I found out that PHP means: Purpose, Hunger and Passion. ‘Where there is a Purpose, there is direction.’‘When there is Hunger, there is achievement.’‘When there is Passion, there is inspiration.’                                               (Gus Takkale)The success on the road of your life will depend on your ability to change your character, then to become constructive, and then you need a full commitment, the ability to communicateand at the end is about contributingto yourself and to the world.
Before starting this journey, you need to adopt TRM (Take Responsibility Mindset) and then pack your bag with the necessary tools for the road:Tool 1: Aim HighTool 2: BelieveTool 3: PHPTool 4: Elimination of the E-word (excuses)And now, enjoy the journey and have fun!

21. What to do for hair loss? - Dec 23, 2012 4:24:00 AM

I got a beautiful, long hair, but recently I noticed that I’m losing it daily, very badly! I started to panic, because I loved my hair and I didn’t know what to do. Every morning my bed was full of hair, on my clothes, in my home, everywhere, even my mom was sufferingJSo, I decided to find a solution for this problem and I found that extreme or prolonged stress can cause you to lose hair more easily. Nevertheless, with a better nutrition and some relaxing techniques, your hair growth will return to normal after three or four months. But that is too long; I can be hairless by that time. I needed something to work it faster. Hair loss can be a very traumatic, difficult experience not only for women, but for men as well, and in many cases, the causes can be confusing and hard to diagnose even after consulting a doctor. But there are some home remedies that helped me to fight hair loss and it will help you too.
Egg Yolks and Olive OilMix two egg yolks with 3 tbsp. of olive oil, and add one table spoon with natural honey in a small bowl. Beat the mixture 1-2 minutes, until you get a uniform consistency. Then gently massage the mixture onto the scalp and roots of the hair. Leave the mixture on the hair and scalp for 15-20 minutes before rinsing it.Note: Egg yolks are helping to re-grow hair faster. It works because of the protein content in egg yolks.

Rinse your hair with lemon juiceCombine the juice of one lemon with the same amount of apple vinegar and 500 ml lukewarm water and rinse your hair after the treatment with the egg yolks and olive oil. Then wash your hair gently with normal shampoo and conditioner.After washing, let your hair dry naturally. Repeat this treatment daily as long as no irritations occur to the scalp or skin. Unused portions can be kept in a cool, dark place for one month or you can store it in the refrigerator.The most common causes of hair loss and thinning are hormonal changes. A mixture of green tea and fresh lime juice can be consumed to help slow hair loss caused by hormonal changes. Drink it before each meal. This remedy can be used up to three times daily as long as it doesn’t have any adverse side effects.This treatment I’m still using daily is really helping my hair and it stopped hair loss. My hair is more healthy and shiny now! I’m very happy! :-) Hope and am sure it will help you too! Just try it!

24. Let it snow! - Dec 17, 2012 12:46:00 AM

   My first meeting with the snow this year, after very long, was fascinating! I was sleeping, when my mom came and woke me up: ’Wake up and see the snow outside! It’s snowing so beautiful!’ she said to me with a big smile on her face. I jumped from my bed, when I heard this and I ran outside in my pajama to see it with my eyes.   It was a real winter outside, a winter dream where it snows, snowing with huge and fluffy snowflakes. All around were white, the houses, the trees, the cars and the hats of the people walking on the road. The snowflakes were falling from the sky as if dancing pushed by the wind hither and thither.   Watching this show, I was enjoying like a small baby the first snow. It was as if almost Christmas is coming.   I was standing like this for few minutes, trying to catch snowflakes in my hands and to get as much of this miracle. My face was tickled by the lightweight flakes and my cheeks became red, but I was feeling great and happy, like suddenly all the concerns of this life disappeared. I loved the snow and I wanted to dance like a snowflake and fly up very high.  Even I loved the snow; I was forced to go back to the heat, because I didn’t want to get ill. Then I went to the window to continue watching the chaotic endless dance of the white butterflies.  I was dreaming, lost in a world of my own -how beautiful will be if I could walk through the snow with my secret lover…to keep me by hand and trying to warm my fingers, to pretend that I’m cold , so he will take me in his arms and then kiss me and fall upon us butterflies…

25. Who doesn't love coffee? - Dec 14, 2012 10:28:00 PM

Taste, smell, flavor, color, cream, caffeine, surrounds you gustatory, olfactory, visual; you feel it in the blood of your heart. I love it in the morning, I find the same passion for it during the day and whenever I feel the need to have a coffee.
Coffee, even it’s blamed most of the time, is a very healthy drink, which can have surprising effects for your health and beauty. Here are the unexpected benefits you can have if you are drinking coffee …in moderation.

1.     The coffee is rich in natural antioxidants, so if the coffee is consumed with control, it can help you to maintain the beauty of your skin and your health.
2.     Do not add milk. Although it may be a true delight, coffee with milk does not have the same benefits for your health, because the milk or cream reduces the power of the oxidants. A simple coffee, without milk and without sugar, helps you to combat the infections in the body and helps the brain to maintain its cognitive abilities at its best longer.
3.     Excellent for hair. If you are brunette, your hair can get a immediate shine, if you rinse your hair (final rinse) with a weak coffee. Plus, the nutrients from the coffee repair the hair and soothe irritated scalp.
4.     Diet.A cup of coffee per day can help you to maintain your suppleness, because the coffee accelerates the metabolism and so it helps you to burn more calories and fat.
Researchers at the University of Bristol, U.K. found that for those women who go through stressful periods of their lives, coffee can help them think faster and to make better decisions. They also showed that for men the effect is somehow negative, because is affecting their memory and some analysis functions of the brain. 
In fact most nutritionists blame coffee for a lot of things, but we’ve been drinking coffee for centuries, but there is no evidence to prove that is bad for you or me! The best friends of women are not diamonds but coffees!
Having a coffee with a friend or someone I love, is a big pleasure for me and it's a great spending time and socialize or have fun:-)Sometimes we can get new ideas or maybe a business deal, beside a cup of coffee with a piece of cake or biscuits.Most of us have busy lives, but the coffee in the morning is treated as important as any other appointment from the daily plan. Some say caffeine helps increase our awareness and do better things.But, I think it's time for me to stop writing this article and just have a cup of coffee!:-)
