EPISODE 2

 

“IF YOU START COUNTING THE NUMBER OF MEN THAT HAS COME & GONE, WHEN WILL YOU MARRY?” —- MICHAEL OTHNIEL

 

I need to share with you if you’re an Insecure Lady because that’s the beginning of your Crack/Falling relationship. Chuck Henderson once said that: “Insecurity is the root of a lot of issues in relationships. You’ve undoubtedly heard it said before that solid relationship are built on trust, or at least something to that effect, and I think most people would find that difficult to argue with. You can’t be around each other every moment of every day (and you probably shouldn’t want to), so there has to be a solid degree of trust between you or you’re flat-out doomed.” The thing about insecurity in a woman is that it can sometimes be hard to spot — or worse, sometimes you think it’s a good thing. You will definitely feel like you have the upper hand in a relationship with an insecure woman, and a lot of dudes consider that a huge win. But believe me when I tell you it’s like walking through a minefield, and in the best-case scenario, you’ll have more of a sidekick than an actual partner in life. Or — in the worst-case scenario — you’ll wake up one day to find your pecker has been cut off and flushed down the toilet. But here’s the thing about insecurity: It can be cured. So if you really like this girl, you should try to help her build up her self-esteem, and there’s a good chance that will fix the problem. Encourage her to have a life of her own. Examine your own behaviour and see if you’re contributing to the issue. We’re all works in progress, and sometimes we need some help to become the best people we can be. IN THIS SECOND EPISODE WHY NOT LET’S LOOK INTO THE 30 SIGNS OF AN INSECURE WOMAN. So if she demonstrates any of the signs below, don’t bail right away. Help her out. It might be the best thing you ever did. Either that, or you’ll end up in a living hell. Life is full of gambles. SEAT-BACK & ENJOY

 

1. Jealousy: It’s flattering when your woman is jealous. It’s proof that she cares about you. A little is fine and perfectly normal, but you should be able to tell when she’s moving into a bunny-boiler territory.

2. She Thinks Every Other Woman Is Out To Steal You Away From Her Like I mentioned, it’s flattering when someone thinks you’re the shit, but don’t believe the hype. You’re not that special.

3. She Inserts Herself Into Every Conversation You Have With A Woman Most of us can tell when we’re being flirted with, but an insecure woman assumes every conversation you have with someone of the opposite sex is going to lead to you dumping her for an upgrade, so she always swoops in to intervene.

4. She Accuses You Of Ogling Every Attractive Woman You See This is difficult to defend against because after all, you are a man. We’re always checking women out, but unless you’re a complete douche, you’re probably not drooling with your eyes popping out of your head, and that’s basically what she’s accusing you of.

5. She Needs To Know Your Exact Whereabouts At All Times And God help you if you’re not where you said you’re going to be.

6. She Looks Through Your Phone She’s more aware of your texts and missed calls than you are.

7. She Goes Through Your Internet Search History If she finds any porn or — oh, shit — that you’ve visited a dating site (even if it was just a pop-up ad), you are screwed.

8. She’s Constantly Seeking Validation

“Do you love me?” “Do you think I’m pretty?” “I’m smart, right?” Like you’re going to answer “no” to any of these questions, anyway. Solicited compliments have no real value, but she feeds on them.

9. Guilt Trips If you’re doing something without her, she’ll probably “let” you, but you’re going to hear about how she feels left out.

10. She Compliments Herself When she reminds you of how lucky you are to have her, she’s really telling you the opposite.

11. She Runs You Down Textbook manipulation. She doesn’t feel good about herself, so she’s trying to make you feel the same way, hoping you’ll believe you can’t do any better than her.

12. She Drives Wedges Between Your Friends And Family She wants to be the only person in your life, so she methodically attempts to alienate you from everyone you care about.

13. She’s Bossy And Domineering This is just an attempt to control the relationship, and by extension, you. She’s making all the decisions in an effort to limit your options.

14. She’s Clingy We all want to feel needed by our partners, but we also want some degree of independence. Not her. When she’s in a relationship, there is no “you” or “I,” only “we” and “us.”

 

15. She Abandons Her Friends For You Again, we all cut down on time with our buddies when we’re in a relationship, but hers have completely vanished to the point where you’re wondering if they ever even existed in the first place.

EPISODE 1 OF THE 365 EPISODES PUBLICATIONS (WHAT IS LOVE?)

Don’t you sometimes wish you had a pocket guide to love, something to walk you through all the dos and the don’ts before you do or don’t do them, a sort of manual to fall back on when in doubt, something or someone showing you the way?

Why don’t they teach us Love in school?

If we came into existence out of love, and if we can’t live without love, and if through life we keep running, bumping, crashing into love, time after time, then how is it not one of the most essential courses we should be required to take while growing up? Not even an elective?

If it is true that love must be lived in order to be understood, it is also true that it must be learned in order to be truly lived. Anything worth our while is worth at least our wisdom. But by the time our wisdom kicks in, we’ll be too old to burn, so why not learn while we’re still on fire?

There is a multitude of bright minds and big hearts who’ve tasted love before us and whom we can safely adopt as our mentors — you can always choose dead masters if you don’t trust the living.

Love is the most democratic feeling. We all have a say and every sigh adds up. It’s the old, universal language everyone speaks, no matter their dialect or accent.

So hear me out, yo Loving Human: Let’s co-create a Love Manual that contains all our collected love wisdom so we can pass it on to future generations saying, “Here, child, add this to your beating heart.”

Who knows, maybe it will prevent some tears or some wars, fight some crime or some loneliness, add some extra honey to their boiling tea, remind them (and ourselves) the lessons we were all born knowing.

“Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, you owe me. Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky.” ~ Hafiz

***

“Love is giving someone the power to destroy you but trusting them not to.” ~ Unknown

***

“We were together. I forget the rest.” ~ Walt Whitman

***

“I can give you my loneliness, my darkness, the hunger of my heart. I am trying to bribe you with uncertainty, with danger, with defeat.” ~ Jorge Luis Borges

***

“I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self-respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald

***

“Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than the sun, more last than star.” ~ e.e. cummings

***

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” ~ Lao Tzu

***

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.  A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you and then leave. A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life…” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

***

“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love.” ~ Dr Seuss

***

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.” ~ C.S. Lewis

***

“So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.” ~ Paulo Coelho

***

“Real love is never perplexed, never qualifies, never rejects, never demands. It replenishes, by the grace of restoring unlimited circulation. It burns because it knows the true meaning of sacrifice. It is life illuminated.” ~ Henry Miller

***

“Go after her. Fuck, don’t sit there and wait for her to call, go after her because that’s what you should do if you love someone, don’t wait for them to give you a sign cause it might never come, don’t let people happen to you, don’t let me happen to you, or her, she’s not a fucking television show or tornado. There are people I might have loved had they gotten on the airplane or run down the street after me or called me up drunk at four in the morning because they need to tell me right now, and because they cannot regret this and I always thought I’d be the only one doing crazy things for people who would never give enough of a fuck to do it back or to act like idiots or be entirely vulnerable and honest and making someone fall in love with you is easy, and flying 3000 miles on four days notice because you can’t just sit there and do nothing and breathe into telephones is not everyone’s idea of love but it is the way I can recognize it because that is what I do. Go scream it and be with her in meaningful ways because that is beautiful and that is generous and that is what loving someone is, that is raw and that is unguarded, and that is all that is worth anything, really.” ~ Harvey Milk

***

“Please let us not interfere with the other’s work or play, nor let the world see our private joys or disagreements. In this connection, I may have to keep some place where I can go to be myself, now and then, for I cannot guarantee to endure at all times the confinements of even an attractive cage.” ~ Amelia Earhart

***

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” ~ John Lennon

***

“For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

***

“Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.” ~ Kahlil Gibran

***

“Anxiety is love’s greatest killer. It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you. You want to save him, but you know he will strangle you with his panic.” ~ Anaïs Nin

***

“I love you without knowing how or when or from where. 
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride: 
So I love you because I know no other way than this: 
Where I do not exist nor you, 
So close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
So close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.” ~ Pablo Neruda

***

“Love is the only way to grasp another human being in the innermost core of his personality. No one can become fully aware of the very essence of another human being unless he loves him. By his love he is enabled to see the essential traits and features in the beloved person; and even more, he sees that which is potential in him, which is not yet actualized but yet ought to be actualized. Furthermore, by his love, the loving person enables the beloved person to actualize these potentialities. By making him aware of what he can be and of what he should become, he makes these potentialities come true.” ~ Viktor Frankl

***

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hope, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now, we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-13 (Bible)

So tell us, how do you spell Love in your dictionary? How do you not?

What would you tell your children? And yourself?

Add your drop to this ocean. ‘Cause “what is an ocean but a multitude of drops?”

FOUNDER’S FIRST SPEECH

I’ll love to start my piece with the quote by one of our great and renown World Leader which states that “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”– Nelson Mandela.
I see this organisation I established a couple of years ago as to what I call ‘World Leaders’ Refinery’, why did I choose to make use of this word; ‘REFINERY’? Come to think of it people so much depend on finished goods/services and when it comes to human resources (such as compliance with labour law and employment standards, administration of employee benefits, and some aspects of recruitment and dismissal) you can get easy job employment I strongly believe if you meet various requirements varying from the different scope of interview sessions.
Why not seat back and relax while I take you through what I Call ‘Qualifications Adventure’. Often time I do have the argument with a friend and a few colleagues on this same subject matter ‘Qualification’, to start within my organisation Student members offer four different categories of Qualification,
the first is ACADEMIC QUALIFICATION,
the second is PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATION,
the third is VOCATIONAL (ENTREPRENEUR) QUALIFICATION,
the fourth is LEADERSHIP QUALIFICATION.
There are various fundamental differences between these forms of qualification. A case study is the opening sentence between two men talking to each other when they do not know each other. This has the intention of knowing the qualifications of the other man to make a mental judgment of the person. In certain circumstances in life, such as applying for a job, academic qualification is what is looked at, before finalising the candidate. There is another term professional qualification that makes the situation confusing. However, professional qualification is different from academic qualification, and this will become clearer after reading this my article.
Academic Qualification
A bachelor’s degree is a course of higher education academic study leading to a qualification such as a bachelor of arts (BA) or bachelor of science (BSc). They are sometimes known as ‘undergraduate’ or ‘first’ degrees. If you are looking for a job, your resume is incomplete without mention of your educational qualifications, also called academic qualifications. Even in the social world, the kind of respect a man or woman gets from others is often heavily dependent upon the degrees he/she has earned in college studies. The higher the academic qualifications, the better are the prospects of a person to achieve success in life. Better equipped persons grab more opportunities in life than persons who have lower levels of academic qualifications.
Professional Qualification
Professional qualification refers to the degrees that individuals earn from a college or university that give a chance to earn their living in a profession. For example, the degree of M.D is enough for a doctor to land a job and enter a profession that normally earns bread and butter for the person for the rest of his life. A student completing his MBA becomes eligible to enter the administrative world in many industries while a degree in law ensures a lifelong profession for the person.
Both professional and academic qualifications are important but there are numerous basic differences between these forms of qualification. An academic qualification is degree awarding qualification and entangles in acquiring of knowledge of subjects within the academic discipline which is theoretical basis not necessarily the application purpose.

While the objective of professional qualification is to equip with knowledge associated with absolute understanding and practical experience that enables the student to apply the knowledge in professional practice, this leads to the various set of skills.

The most major difference between these forms of qualification is may that a professional qualification due to the nature of bringing up, build on practice analysis and offers a guarantee of competence and expertise. So, it certifies that after completion of the qualification, the individual has full knowledge with skills to perform the duties required in the profession.

In contrast, an academic qualification does not certify competence and skills and is not based on existing practices. It ensures only that the individual has learnt the theory besides practice.

The academic qualification provides knowledge whereas Professional qualification develops skills to apply the knowledge in real life.

I would say academic qualification is associated with books, but professional qualification is associated with Real Life, now and in future.
