To achieving Goal Tips

Tips for Achieving Your Goals

Do you have long-term projects with short-term expectations?  If you do, that is a sure path to frustration and failure.

Lifestyle goals such as exercise and healthy diet have to become habits in order to be effective.  Career change also takes time and planning, and it doesn’t happen overnight.

Your world has shifted.  There’s voice mail, e-mail, pagers, and faxes that have made a “waiting” period unacceptable and almost obsolete.  With information immediately available, we expect relationships and goal achievement to be done the same.  As you read this you know that it is unreasonable to expect that, don’t you?  We’ve been led by advertisers to believe that we deserve immediate gratification, and that it is readily and effortlessly available!

When you want to train a puppy, you know that it’s going to take time and consistent reinforcement.  You’re ready for that, because you want your puppy to behave in an acceptable way.  Why then, are you so patient with the puppy and so hard on yourself?

When you plant seeds in the garden, you tend them, water them, hope for sunlight and nurture them.  Are you nurturing yourself?

The best way to move gently and effectively towards your goals is to take a reasonable approach.  Break your long-term project goal into sub-goals.  Break it into doable, short-term chunks.  Today prepare the soil; tomorrow plant the seeds.

Each action you take and each step is satisfying because you know that it is contributing to the completion of your goal.  You cannot rush Mother Nature with your garden, and the same is true for your goals.

This process is much more than “bloom where you’re planted”, because when you’re the gardener you choose what to plant and how to nurture it.  Do the same for yourself, and grow yourself beautifully.  Your goals will be accomplished in due time, and you won’t end up up-tight and frazzled.

Identify 5 tip to Theft Protection

5 Tips For Identity Theft Protection

This is that time of year when we all start getting those emails that want to purloin our secret codes and passwords.  You know the ones that have subject lines like: “Your Account Is About To Be Closed,” “There’s A Block On Your Account,” “Could You Help Me Claim My Funds,” or my all-time favorite “Congratulations – You’ve Won The UK Lottery.”

This is the time of year when we are all shopping for gifts for family or customers, and the last thing we need is for our bank or credit cards account to be hindered.  That is exactly what these “cyber grifters” are counting on, and unfortunately some of us are tempted to follow the instructions sent to investigate. 

First and foremost, DON’T FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE EMAIL!  If you think there might be a problem, access the account in question as you normally do on your PC and not with the link supplied in the phony email.

I’ve had some very authentic looking email supposedly from banks, that even went so far as to copy the colors of the bank logo and stationery style.  But, don’t fall for the scam.  In fact, don’t even open the email, because many are just set to loose a virus program on your computer by being opened.  Simply forward the suspicious email to the “spoof email” address supplied by your bank, or credit card company.

Nearly 10 million Americans fell prey to identity theft last year, costing businesses and individuals billions of dollars.  Here are some other tips to help you:

  1. Understand debit card dangers:  Greater liability than credit cards.  When it comes to fraud, debit cards carry much greater personal liability than credit cards, depending on how quickly you report the loss of the card.  If you fail to report unauthorized use within 60 days of receiving your bank statements, you could lose all the money in the account and be held responsible for the amount of money that has been tapped from your line of credit.
  2. Rethink check writing:  That little slip of paper has way too much information. Some experts advise against check writing because it gives away your address, bank account number, signature and license number to complete strangers.  On top of that, there’s no federal legislation to limit your liability for forged checks (each state has its own set of rules).  Experts advise that you look into automating your bill paying.
  3. Secure your mail:  Your mailbox is a goldmine of information.  Between bank statement, bills, and all those pre-approved credit card offers, your mailbox is loaded with personal data which identity thieves can use to easily apply for a credit card in your name.  Unless you diligently check your credit report, you may never even know about it.  One way to avoid this is to have your mailbox under lock and key, but most of us in Santa Clarita have our mailboxes at the curb in front of our house and the postman frowns on carrying dozens and dozens of keys around.  The other solution is to have a rented mailbox, or to foil “dumpster-diving” thieves by buying a shredder and destroy documents before discarding.
  4. Go virtual:  For shopping online, there are “virtual” card numbers.  These are randomly generated credit card numbers that are disposable and that on-line shoppers use once and throw away.  It’s linked directly to your real credit card account so purchases show up on your monthly bill.  The service is easy to use – and it’s FREE!  All you need to do is register with companies offering the virtual card, and they are MBNA, Discover, and Citigroup.
  5. Create an emergency identity kit:  Would you know how to contact your credit card company in an emergency?  Create an emergency kit that contains: your account number, expiration date, issuing company name, and emergency contact number for each card you own.  While you’re at it, make copies of your driver’s license, social security card, birth certificate and passport and store them in a locked box or file cabinet, or a safe deposit box.  I like the safe deposit box best, because this gives you protection in the event of a catastrophe such as fire, earthquake, etc. 

This may all seem like a lot of unnecessary work, but if you’re ever the victim of identity theft – even just once – you’ll realize that it’s well worth the effort.

Many of us forget that were it not for what we carry in our wallets or in our purses, we’re all John and Jane Doe’s if we can’t speak due to injury or are unaccompanied by someone who knows us.  How much less stressful is it to know that in a bank box, no matter where you are, there are items that can verify your identity.  Better to be safe, than sorry!

Valentine day Haram And To All Muslim

History of Valentine's Day Celebration

When we talk about the history of Valentine's Day celebration we will find that there are three matters related thereto.

"« The first view people associate it with a festival celebration of ancient Rome before the advent of Christianity, called Lupercalia. Lupercalia was the consecration ceremony which was held from 13th to 18th February. Two first day they worship the goddess of love, for those ancient Romans called Juno Februata. On these young people choose the names of Roman girls to be their choice and put in a box. Each youth will then take the name from the box at random. Names girls shown in the paper will be a couple who will become objects of entertainment sex for a year.

On February 15, they asked for protection from harassment wolf deity Lupercalia. On this day they would sacrifice a dog and a goat. Then they will select two young Romans considered the most powerful to apply the blood to body and wash their hand with milk. Will be held after the grand parade is led by two young men and the two will hit the people who are on their way to skin the beast and the women would rush to receive the shot because they think it will increase their fertility.

"« The second relate to the death of the pastor of St.. Valentine of Rome during the reign of King named Claudius II. There are two versions of the story related to the St. This Valentine.

The first version. In the reign of Claudius II, the Romans, who worshiped the gods are hostile to Christianity and Christian missionaries were jailed and tortured. St. Valentine as a hardcore active professed Christianity and spread the teachings are also imprisoned by Claudius, c II. Rumored St. Valentine even in prison, he still taught and spread the religion among prisoners in jail in addition to the prison to help prisoners escape from jail. This event has been known to Claudius, c II, and he ordered the St. Valentine tortured and finally executed on February 14.

Sacrifices made by St. Valentine is considered by Christians as a great sacrifice for his love of religion. Even St. Valentine is equated with Jesus who is considered by Christians to death for the sins of the redeemed his people. It is said also that while in prison, he had fallen in love with the child of one prison officer and the end of its life before being murdered, he could write a love letter to the girl who signed From your Valentine (From Valentinemu). Then the Christians took it in conjunction with the February 14th to celebrate love for their pastor's death commemorate St. Valentine.

Second version. Claudius II thought that the young soldiers who are married are more strong and powerful while he was in the battle against those who were married. Thus Claudius, c II to prevent young men from marrying. However St.Valentine opposed to hard and he had the ceremony for the young men of Rome confidential. Activities St. Valentine eventually be discovered by Claudius, c II and he directed St. Valentine was arrested and hanged on 14 February 269 AD

A third opinion states this Valentine's Day celebration in conjunction with the nature of the bird breeding bird falls on the 14th February. This is the opinion of the English tradition.

Here we can see clearly that the origin of Valentine's Day celebration, there was no relationship of any relevance to the culture and the religion of Islam and Malay customs.


As already set forth in the al-Quran and al-Sunnah and agreed upon by the early generations of Muslims for the Muslim day of greatness which we welcome it was prescribed for Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Aidiladha. This as the word of God S.W.T.:

For every nation, have We made a particular Shari'a to follow and execute them, the experts do the other Shari'a syariatmu disputes in affairs, and summon (O Muhammad) mankind to the religion of your Lord, you are actually kerana above a straight path. al-Hajj: 67

Anas bin Malik said: The Prophet once came to Medina, while the population has two feast days. On both of them to play (fun) in the period of ignorance. Then the king said: Verily Allah has replaced both of them for you all with two better days, namely the feast of Aidiladha and Aidilfitri. - Hadith al-Nasaai, no: 959.

By Muslims ought to be only qualify themselves with the days of celebration to welcome the diiktiraf by Allah and His Messenger specifically for Muslims. After the end salafussoleh namely 3 times the best period for Muslims, the various day celebration has been added to the Islamic calendar as Mawlid al-Rasul, Israk Mikraj, Maal Hijrah, Nuzul al-Quran and others again. However, what is mendukacitakan Muslims in the early days has now celebrating feast days that are not directly related to Muslims instead It was derived from cultural and religious groups who reject the commandment of Allah like a welcome New Year's Day Valentine's Day and Halloween are we discussed this. There is a ban rather than the king s.a.w. to imitate the culture of pagan groups bercanggah with syarak and for those who imitate the culture of the heathen feared they would fall into this class.

His saying: Whoever resembles a people is he one of those them. - Hadith narrated by Imam Abu Dawud, Hadith no: 3512.

Welcome addition this Valentine's Day is a ceremony that since the hooks with the Ancient Romans and religion as well as Kristian has been described before. It is precisely for those who welcome the day he dreaded to fall into two classes such as have been spoken by the Prophet on top. If someone is mean to look back to celebrate the death of St. Valentine then no doubt such actions may lead to bahawa culprit expelled from Islam.

If he did not intend such a Valentine's Day and welcome to rejoice-ria than he actually has done a great kemungkaran kerana speech acts resemble the group that day who rebel against Allah SWT.

Additionally share this Valentine's Day greeting followed by actions that are contrary to syarak like free association between men and women, with berpeleseran to dispose of the places that do not necessarily suspicious and even hala membazir money by giving expensive gifts. On Valentine's Day welcomed the law, Shaykh al-Uthaymeen ¡¥ rh says: ¡§ So when in celebrating Valentine's Day is meant to commemorate the re-St. Valentine, then no doubt the man has been disbelieved bahawa. And if it does not mean it but just went along to others, then that person has done a great sin.

Promiscuity can not be denied when this Valentine's Day greeting to open the door of adultery while Allah swt ordered us to cover all the space that may lead to adultery. His words:

And do not approach fornication, adultery is actually a indecency and an evil way (that carries kerosakan). al-Israa 32

We have to remember bahawa groups hostile to Islam, will sentiasa tried planting the seeds of apostasy in Islam so that their souls away from the straight path of Allah SWT diredhai again. His words:

Jews and Christians are not ever going to agree or like unto you (O Muhammad) that you think their religion (which has terpesong it). Say (unto them): "Verily, guidance of Allah (Islam's true guidance)". Al-Baqarah (2): 120

By that they mempopularkan this Valentine's Day greeting in Islamic countries and reveal his address as a matter that is so romantic and wonderful for couples who want to prove their love feelings. This is exactly the attitude that Satan tried to adapt sentiasa immoral deeds that seem like a good case to be practiced by humans without feeling guilty. His Word

He said: "O my Lord! Kerana Thou hast made me astray, (then) for behold I will memperelokkan any kind of immoral to Adam and zuriatnya in this world, and I will put them all except among zuriat-zuriat Adam's servant servant is cleared of any shirk ". ¡V al-Hijr (15): 39-40

The argument-argument rests on top of it has formulated the ulamak bahawa Valentine's Day greeting is forbidden for all Muslims, and let the authorities take reasonable measures to prevent cultural groups who disbelieve in God than practiced by Muslims in Malaysia. The mass media should exalt prevented from this Valentine's Day greeting to the Muslims. As the turn of the mass media should be used to deploy the fatwas that forbid the ulamak Valentine's Day greeting.


In conclusion, we can conclude that the attitude of the younger generation of Muslims in Malaysia are Malays are celebrating Valentine's Day aims to mimic the hedonistic culture imported from the west. According to them the western culture is such a pattern reflects the latest and most suitable to live in modern times.

They are backward in imitating the western way of life is considered rigid and outdated. Thus we see the younger generation of Muslims lining up to adopt western lifestyles such as mentatu their body, a display of various fashion hair, dressed in a provocative fashion, independent practice association, visiting discotheques that served liquor and others.

For those with a lifestyle in such a way, they have managed to replicate a race that is considered highly developed. Yea, O youth of Islam, even as good as you imitate the western lifestyle, they will see you as people in Asia who came from the 3rd world is inferior compared to them. They will not see you all as equal, though you may want to emulate sunguh hard way of life.

Therefore, Muslims should feel proud of the religious beliefs and teachings of the symbols associated with it. Let us not be people who do not stand thus easily influenced by foreign cultures who try to be cultivated in the heart of our society in order to mislead us. Let us not too dikelabui with a worldly life berkiblatkan west as this Valentine's Day celebration. God's Word S.W.T.:

"O nation of this world's life is fun (for temporary) and the Hereafter that is the enduring." Surah al-Ghaafir: 39

Way To Stay Motivated By Using 5 Steps

Five Easy Steps to Staying Motivated

Motivating yourself to excel at your job or to be an example to your employees, should not be something you do only when the spirit moves you.  It’s an ongoing process that should include every facet of your business life. This means your mental attitude, physical well-being and appearance, work atmosphere, your interaction with others (clients and employees alike), and your off-the-job environment.

Motivational experts get paid big bucks to tell professionals, striving for success, that they must constantly examine these factors.  How do you do that?  Follow the 5 tips that follow, and watch the changes.

1.      Maintain a Positive Attitude – Let’s realize that life is only 10% of what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.  We’re responsible for our own actions and attitudes, and changing them when appropriate.  When you’re around people/things that are uplifting and positive, you feel that way.  You have more confidence in yourself, and know you can change whatever needs changing. If you can make your workplace such a place you’ll find happier workers and higher production. You might even find your employees look forward to coming to work!

2.      Leave Personal Troubles Home -  Everyone has problems, but they don’t belong at work. Turn your attention and energy entirely to your on-the-job tasks.  This will actually be good for you because you’ll get a mental break from your troubles.
3.      Create Positive Affirmations -  The reason for writing goals for your business is the same as creating positive affirmations on paper.  What your eyes see and ears hear, your mind will believe.  Try it!  After you’ve written them down, read them aloud to yourself – and do it every morning when you get into work.  You’ll be amazed at what happens.  Come up with a set of new ones every month.  Statements such as, “I’m an important and valuable person,” or “I know I’ll make good use of my time today.”  Repeating them out loud everyday at a set time will help reinforce positive actions.

4.      Make Sure Break Times Are Really Break Times -             This is an area where most bosses/entrepreneurs fall down.  You become so intense about the project or situation you’re working on that you don’t ease up.  Thinking that it’ll be solved in the next few seconds, and then you’ll get a cup of coffee can lead you right up to quitting time.  Regularly adhering to a specified break schedule, even if you’re the boss, releases the tension.  If you work on a computer this is even a greater problem because before you realize it – you’ve been working in that same position for hours.  The best answer to this is to set yourself a reminder on your appointment calendar for every 2 hours, and let the computer reminder chime send you the alert to move around.

5.      Exercise, Exercise, Exercise -      I know that lately it seems that “exercise” is the cure-all to every physical ailment or your love life, but despite that there is some truth to that ugly word.  By “exercise” I don’t mean that you should go out and join a gym and spend your lunch-time, 3-days-a-week there working out.  What is really beneficial and workable is that at those chiming alerts from your computer, get up and walk around your desk or room.  Maybe go outside and get the mail and enjoy the sunlight (if you’re an entrepreneur that has a home office), or just get up and do a few stretches.  Concentrated, tense thinking – typing - plotting plans - or whatever your work, makes all those muscles tighten up and knot up.  Then when we move we “ooh” and “ouch” because we’ve knotted up into a ball of tension. Periodic stretching, even at our desk, or just getting up and walking over to the window and getting a different view can help.  One of the greatest disservice modern business d├ęcor has done to us, is making our offices pristine, sleek, unencumbered spaces.  There is nothing more relaxing than getting up from your desk and walking over to a peaceful, serene, seascape or pastoral painting and just drinking it in visually.  Momentarily transporting your mind out of work and into that place does wonders.  A few good paintings and less shiny chrome in offices would benefit us all.

It only takes a little concentrated effort on our part to keep motivated and productive, which leads to success.  I know you’re going to hate hearing this, but it’s true anyway – and that is, “WHEN LIFE GIVES YOUR LEMONS – MAKE LEMONADE!”

Getting your price lists, brochures, catalogs or newsletters
typeset does not necessarily have to be a costly procedure.
Keep in mind that the main cost in typesetting is the time
involved in setting type.  By minimizing the time needed to
create a typeset piece you can effectively keep your cost down.
The following suggestions can help reduce your typesetting

Know what you want the FIRST time around.  Have a picture in
your mind.  Trial and error can be costly.  Don't have a
typesetter set it one way, then decide a different format would
look better.

Reduce and eliminate author's corrections by thorough proofing
and re-proofing.

Avoid minimum charges by combining small jobs and having them
set at the same time.

Try to use one family of type to save time and money by avoiding
font changes.  The consistent look is better.

Give explicit instructions on marking up copy:  type styles,
column widths/margins.

With a large job, such as a brochure or annual report, request a
style setting proof sheet to get approvals before the entire job
is done.

Avoid super rush jobs, especially if you don't really need them.

Avoid lengthy corrections on the phone.  You might end up paying
for corrections later that could have been avoided if you had
done your editing on proof sheets.

Get the layout finished and approved before having type set...
the same goes for copy, of course.

Avoid the use of "run-arounds" (reducing the width of the copy
to make room for a photo in the column, for example).  If you do
use them, use simple shapes, boxes, squares.

Avoid the use of curved or angular type. Type reading left to
right on a page (for example, this report) is faster and less
expensive to set than copy that is set in a curve or running
sideways on the page.

The use of unjustified text and captions is less expensive than
justified because it sets quicker, costing less time.

Don't depend on the typesetter to read your mind.  Be specific.
