You helped me put my life in perspective
August 25, 2010
Thank you so much for this wonderful article, it has really helped me to put my life is perspective.
Having born in poverty stricken part of Kenya, I had for a long time wondered why i was born in Africa, why i was born poor, and why I was struggling to make ends meet. I never hated my life, I just felt that it could be better. I then decided to do something about it.
- Kenya (20289)
I am glad that the article as proved useful to you.
Nothing is worse than a person who is born wealthy and then wastes his life. Being born poor means that you have a world of opportunity for improvement in front of you.
Be thankful for the blessings you have, and keep working to improve your life and that of your family.
Best wishes on your success. I know you will be a champion.

Heather - USA (19957)

I am not happy with myself
May 22, 2010
i am not happy with myself
i like to be alone all time
i think i am like a loser
i wanna to get success in my life
everybody thinks that i am dull but i am not dull
SAIF - Pakistan (19768)
First of all, take stock in what you have achieved in your life, as well as your skills and talents. Make a list of things you have done that you are proud of. Also lists some of the activities that you were good at and enjoy. When you consider these things and look at your list, you can see that you have a lot more to offer than you realize.
Now take a look at your blessings. Do you have a place to live and food to eat? Do you have any family and friends? Do you want access to a computer and the Internet? There are many things to be thankful of. It is good to appreciate the things you have.
One of the most important things in being a success in life is realizing what you really enjoyed doing. If there is some activity that you love, perhaps you can make a career out of it.
Success and happiness in life often requires other people. Someone who only thinks of himself is often not very happy. You do not have to be entertaining to other people, but you should take interest in them. One of the greatest skills a person can have is to be a good listener. Someone who listens and is interested is considered a valuable friend. But also, taking interest in others will result in them being interested in you.
Start this all by listing your achievements, the things you like, and your blessings. It takes a little effort, but it's certainly is better than having an unhappy life.
You can become a champion by helping others become champions two.
Send me an article on how to be successful
May 18, 2010
Pls send me an article on how to be successful in life and money. Thanks.
Emeka - Nigeria (19733)
Although making a lot of money is important to many people, what is more important is to find an activity that you enjoy and find satisfying. If you are doing something you love, the money will follow.
Ask yourself what you enjoy doing and what you are good at.

Best wishes on becoming successful and rich.
I can avoid always failing?
May 11, 2010
If anyone is getting a series of failure,
but he want to be a winner !
He is not getting concentration.
What should he do?
Rishitosh - India (19702)
Not having concentration means you are getting sidetracked by other things that are often not as important. Set aside a certain time to only work on a single subject, not allowing anything to distract you. Do not do anything but that subject during that time period.
Then take a break and later go back to that subject or some other one.
Do not think in terms of failure. They are just setbacks, from which you should learn. It means you are getting closer to your goal. But of course, you must have a specific goal of what you want to achieve.

May 11, 2010

Mathematics is important in engineering. You can improve your abilities by starting with simple books on the subjects.

My daughter is lazy and angry
April 25, 2010
actually problem has to my daughter. now she is 16 years old.she is always lazy,getting angry with others(mostly with family)no hobbies at all. I think she don'have any positive attitude.she is brilliant but she will not work. what to do? In her mind life is like a film. very easy and cool.she don't know what she is loosing.What I will do?
- India (19604)
It is not unusual for boys and girls around the age of 16 years old to be lazy, bored and even angry. Also, some children in the teen years rebel against their parents and try to do just the opposite that their parents want. I guess it is just part growing up and making the transition into becoming an adult.
One thing that is important is that she does not have friends who can be a bad influence on her. Often children will imitate their friends.
It does not pay to criticize her or try to get her to do things, because that will only cause more resistance. Although, there is one thing you should be strict about, and that is that she does her required chores.
When she does good things -- especially in school -- complement her and encourage her. Also, it is good to set a good example with your own positive attitudes. Some of that will rub off on her when she gets older.
When you get a chance, talk with her and asked her what her favorite things are. Does she have any special things she likes to do or movies she likes to watch? Ask her what she plans to do when she is through with high school. Already it is good to make plans for college.
But it is important when you ask these questions that you do not put her on the defensive. You are just curious, and it is good to find out things about your daughter that you may not know.
It is often difficult bring it up teenagers, but I am sure she will turn out fine.
What qualities should I consider it a possible wife?
March 30, 2010
What are the qualities i should concider in a lady before entering in a relationship that could lead to marriage?
Frank - Nigeria (19464)
Certainly, you should look for a woman who has good character traits, such as being honest, caring and not lazy. Another positive trait to consider is her attitude toward money. You do not want to marry someone who will carelessly spend all of the family's money.
Of course, what initially attracts you to a woman is that she is appealing to your eye. You want to have some common interests and similar personality traits, such that you get along and enjoy the persons company.
However, there are certain areas where you should have opposite strengths and weaknesses. This is so you can help each other out.
It is good to evaluate yourself and the type of friends you have, in order to improve your judgment on the type of woman you choose. But also, remember that you must have good qualities that will also appeal to her.
Best wishes on finding a good wife.
Wants questions that can be answered
January 15, 2010
My question is the program is very okay but, is not a question per say is observation, why can't you set a question in objective way for us to be answer. thanks.
Hammed - India (19059)
I am not sure I understand what you are asking. Were you having trouble accessing the answers to the Mini-Quiz. Or was there some other problem?
My wife left me
January 11, 2010
my wife left me, she go with the other guy, is she know his doing
eduardo - USA (19027)
I am sorry to hear that your wife left you. That was not nice of her or the other guy. Although you are probably sad and even angry, there are some things you need to do.
First, make sure that she is not able to get any of your money by cashing checks or using your credit card. Also be careful if she has a key to your home.
You also need to move on with your life. It is like starting anew for you.
On a spiritual sense, wish them well. Your good thoughts will help you feel better about the situation.
Best wishes, and I hope these ideas will help you get over this unpleasant situation.
Not all people can realize things
November 20, 2009
We think your web-site is not really a great thing because not all of the people can realize these things.
Your site is a bit like "non-sense". See all people have to find their own way to be successful in life. Maybe some of them will think if they cannot handle your 5-powers-of-a-champion they are not good enough for our world! You understand my point of view?
So, if you are interested you can send me an answer.
Ashley - Germany (18708)
Thanks for your feedback and views. Our website can be a like a pair of glasses that helps a person see things differently. Few people become successful in life without the help of others--either those who are good examples or from material they read. To try to do it on your own can be very difficult.
Everyone does the best they can. A person who tries but fails is better off than the person who has greater skills but does not try.
Best wishes on becoming a champion in your life. And help others to be successful too.
I love school
October 27, 2009
I love school. I love to learn.
Nicole - New Zealand (18577)
You sound like a person who is going to be a true success in life. It is good to love things, especially learning and knowledge.
How can I give up alcohol and cigars?
August 1, 2009
How can I give-up alcohol and cigars without a pinch of struggle?
Joseph - Kenya (18090)
Since both alcohol and tobacco are addictive substances, it is difficult to give them up. They also are sometimes part of social interactions, making them even harder to give up.
But thinking of the effect they have on your general health, you can be motivated to quit both of them. One way is to get into better physical condition through regular exercise. when you are in good shape or in training, your body doesn't accept those pollutants as well. It then helps to quit.
Since drinking and smoking are often considered part of college life, they are difficult to quit unless you have a support system of friend who also want to quit.
What are the five elements of emotional intellignece?
July 5, 2009
1.what are the four (4) selves than represent each human person?
2.what are the five (5) basic element of emotional intelligence ?
john ray - Phillipines (17980)
I'm not sure what you meant by four selves.
In the Sufi religion, there are four selves or states of being:
1. The commanding self - the one who will not let go. 2. The doubting, self-reproachful self - the dawning of conscience, questioning and self-investigation - the one who questions the one who will not let go. 3. The believing, inspired self - the one who no longer questions. The beginning of Surrender. 4. Self-realized - the satisfied, illumined, enlightened and fulfilled self. The one who knows, and is, Unity.
The five elements of emotional intelligence are: self-awareness, motivation, self-regulation, empathy, and adeptness in relationships.
How can I implement on my plan?
June 24, 2009
How can I implement on my plan or my thoughts? Actually I am good planner, but I cannot execute my plan. I want to be successful in life....but how could I ?????
Sanju - India (17942)
Often a plan is too complex or too vague to allow successful implementation. Some people also will get so caught up in the plan that they never get started. Either they worry too much about details or use it as an excuse, because they are afraid of failing.
If you have a long term plan, consider your desired outcome. Write down that long term goal to look at every day as a reminder of what you want to achieve or obtain.
Then think of short term activities that can be easily achieved but that may ultimately lead to your long term goal. Achieve those simple goals and congratulate yourself on them. It is a method of taking thin slices out of a large project, such that you get closer and closer to your objective, but yet prevent yourself from getting discouraged by the enormity of the task.
In wanting to be successful in life, you need to define what success means to you. Ideally, it is a good income, a good family and friends, and good health.
Best wishes in your success,
