|Romance / A Letter To The Brokenhearted by Dennis192: 6:37am On Jun 01, 2016|
Hello, friend! I just thought it wise and caring enough to share this with you. It must have been hustling and hustling here and there right? And possibly, everything is seemingly not giving out what you yearned for – Such is L-I-F-E!
Did you know, “There are millions of people out there who do not deserve your love; and No matter how hard you try to give them your all and make them see the reason to love you back, you will find out in the end that you have just had a bad venture?
True love is worth waiting for, it’s worth praying for. True and undying love are worth all the patience in the world.
“The worst emotional tragedy that can befall you in life is to freely give out your heart to someone who doesn’t know how to keep it”What I am about to share with you is more than a therapy. It is sure more than a healing balm and more effective than a pain relief dose; it is a keep-it-fit-forever package for everyone who has a heart.
You see, “Doing wrongs might be as easy as breaking a glass cup, and making the other person to really forgive without no extra resentment in their hearts might be the hardest nut to crack.” Isn’t it more than a heartbreak when those we trust our lives with are the very ones that make emotional moles out of our mountainous courage?
Those we hold in high esteem are sometimes the ones who mar our indwelling joy cum happiness, rather than giving support when we so need them! It gives more than a tailspin, finding oneself in this category. And if you find yourself as a victim of this, please forgive such persons: if they knew how to treat you better, they sure would have.
You sure can still love again, and again.
Obviously, Life is a place where everything come and go. It’s a place where people get hurt where they expect to get romantic love and showers of accolades. A place where people get jilted even after giving donkey years to grow a love. Life in short is full of unexpected hurts, pains – a den of deceivers and evil doers it is!
Painstakingly, I always wish the world would be a place where HEARTS can be valued than we value the perishables. But whenever I think how imperfect things are, I sigh.
You see, one funny thing about heartbreak is the definition of a heartbreaker: A heartbreaker is “a charming person who is irresponsible in emotional relationships.” Imagine that! Without mincing words, that he is your prince charming doesn’t mean He can’t get your heart broken. And that she’s got all that feeds your sensual desire doesn’t mean she can’t get your heart broken.
So don’t give out all you’ve got in your within just moments into a relationship. Take your time to build a mutual link that will last.
“It is a bad practice to increase speed uncontrollably on a road you don’t know where it leads”
While you give out your heart in love, find a place within you to keep it safe. People can be trusted with money these days than be trusted with someone else’s heart. Heartbreak is real and it’s everywhere. People get heartbroken every now and then. And then, the get out of jail kind of advice is for you to “Give your heart to the one who has a heart -a complete heart- and not the one who has a broken heart!”
One who has a broken heart can never keep a heart. And who is he/she that has a broken heart? Such is the one who doesn’t know love at all. Such is no one but the person whose desire is to have only a fleshly relationship with you. If you see a shadow of such, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE.
“Take time to build trust before you let off your guard, and be sure you are not giving your heart to a heartbreaker.”
AND WHEN THE UNEXPECTED HAPPENS?
When the unexpected happens, even after giving your all, don’t plan to hurt yourself. You don’t deserve more hurt than you already have. All you need to do is to find yourself a place of solace. Remember, if no one love you, i love. If no one cares, i do. I just smiled....... Hope that reached you. Love you

|Literature / God Of Spider Web – A Story That Shows How God Answers Prayers... by Dennis192: 11:29am On Jan 04, 2016|
During World War II, a soldier was separated from his unit on an island. The fighting had been intense, and in the smoke and the crossfire he had lost touch with his comrades. Alone in the jungle, he could hear enemy soldiers coming in his direction. Scrambling for cover, he found his way up a high ridge to several small caves in the rock. Quickly he crawled inside one of the caves. Although safe for the moment, he realised that once the enemy soldiers looking for him swept up the ridge, they would quickly search all the caves and he would be killed. As he waited, he prayed, “Lord, please spare my life. Whatever will happen, I love you and trust you. Amen.” After praying, he lay quietly listening to the enemy begin to draw close. He thought, “Well, I guess the Lord isn’t going to help me out of this one.” Then he saw a spider begin to build a web over the front of his cave. “Hah” he thought, “What I need is a brick wall and what the Lord has sent me is a spider web. God does have a sense of humour.” As the enemy drew closer he watched from the darkness of his hide out and could see them searching one cave after another. As they came to his, he got ready to make his last stand, but then he heard the leader of the soldiers say: “you may as well ignore looking in this cave …if he had entered here this web would be broken!” So they left and he was delivered! To his amazement, however, after glancing in the direction of his cave, they moved on. Suddenly he realised that with the spider web over the entrance, his cave looked as if no one had entered for quite a while. “Lord, forgive me,” he prayed. “I had forgotten that in you a spider’s web is stronger than a brick wall. He will use the most foolish things in this world to confound the wise! God is your protector, if you believe in him. Please share it and bless someone....

|Jobs/Vacancies / This Is Why December Is The Best Month To Find A Job by Dennis192: 7:23pm On Dec 14, 2015|
As a job-seeker, does December bring about thoughts of kicking back, relaxing and taking a long winter's nap? If so, you are not alone. Hiring drops dramatically during the holidays and the majority of people looking for work adopt the attitude that they will take these weeks off and then gear back up after the first of the year.
But this mindset results in a major disadvantage to those who succumb to the belief that "December is dead" as far as their job search is concerned. On the contrary, it gives an enviable leg up to the savvy seeker who chooses to keep their search active. The reason for this? Your competition levels drop dramatically!
Moreover, January and February generally represent the strongest hiring period of the year. So, if you stay active, make your presence known and build connections, you will be setting yourself up to be first in line when hiring takes off.
In truth, December can actually be the best time of year to look for work!
Here are three ways you can capitalize on the season to make real strides in your job search:
1) Make merry while you make your presence known
Opportunities to socialize abound. Parties, gatherings, and industry and community events provide prime opportunities to mix, mingle and make valuable contacts. Although you will want to partake in the festivities, do not forget that you are on display. As an active job-seeker, your goal is to exude a combination of professionalism and personal warmth. So dress somewhat conservatively, watch your alcohol intake, interact with holiday cheer and enjoy yourself.
When asked what you do, you will want to let people know that you are currently in a job search. However, a light touch is always best -- especially at parties and informal gatherings. You can certainly mention a few of the companies you are targeting. But do so in a way that doesn't dampen the festivities by coming on too strong. You could consider saying something like: "Right now, I'm looking at companies X, Y & Z. If you have any thoughts or ideas for me, I'd love to hear them at a later date." Then you can follow up when this type of conversation is more appropriate.
2) Use Season's Greetings to reconnect with old contacts
Holiday cards and newsy letters are not only welcomed, they're expected. Done correctly, they can be a great way of securing new leads and opportunities. After sharing the latest about your family, you can mention your job search and a few of the companies you are targeting. Then, in a low-key manner, you can let your friends know that you would appreciate any suggestions or contacts they might have. You could even follow up when you meet them at various gatherings (again approaching the topic lightly) or contact them after the first of the year to see if they've got any ideas for you.
3) Remember the true meaning of the season and pay it forward
Volunteering not only helps others, it is a great way to move beyond your immediate circle of contacts. In addition to doing good works, you never know whom you may meet and where such opportunities might lead. So pursue as many of these opportunities as you can that will comfortably allow you time for other holiday networking activities.
Also, you will want to recognize that networking is a two-way street. Sharing information, tips and job leads adds to the good will of the season and predisposes those in your circle to want to do the same for you.
Above all, be sure to take full advantage of this very special time of year. Good cheer and serendipity abound in December. People tend to be a bit merrier and certainly more open to reconnecting. So take the time to reach out, share the warmth of the season and keep your ultimate goals in mind. You just might find yourself ringing in the New Year with a brand new job ... and it doesn't get much merrier than that!

|Jobs/Vacancies / Your Resume Will Catch The Eye Of Employers By Including These Six Highlights. by Dennis192: 11:17am On Dec 14, 2015|
Whether you’re just starting out in your job search or need a major overhaul to your application process, the key to a strong job search is a strong resume. But creating one is easier said than done, as most job seekers know from experience that it takes a lot more than an impressive career to catch the eye of the hiring manager.
Check out these six signs of a great resume, and learn how to put one together yourself.
1. Strong descriptors and accomplishments
Employers don’t simply want to know what you think about yourself; they want to see results. If you really are a hard worker, prove it by backing up that claim with some data. A recent survey found that the words and descriptors that most impress hiring managers include: achieved, improved, trained/mentored, managed, created, resolved, volunteered, influenced, increased/decreased, ideas, negotiated, launched, revenue/profits, under budget and won.
2. Education, certifications and skills
If you hold certifications, degrees or awards that relate to your job, noting them in your resume will communicate to employer just how qualified you are for the job. Be sure to call attention to these accomplishments in a clear, prioritized fashion, like summing up your certifications and years of relevant experience in your professional summary at the top of your resume. You can go more in depth in your education/skills section, or call out awards as they were given by position or organization.
3. Links to even more information
Including links to your personal website, networking page or online portfolio will provide employers with an easy way to learn more about you if they are interested, without cluttering up your resume by trying to pack in too much information in a limited space. Include the essential information and job history in your resume that best relates to the position, and save more secondary information like unrelated volunteer efforts or personal work projects for your online presence, which hints that there’s plenty more to learn about you as a job candidate.
4. Context and accomplishments
If you work for a Fortune500 company, you’ll definitely want to capitalize on that prestige and avoid employers mistaking your work for a smaller organization. Offering context for your experience and accomplishments, like noting company size, market impact or revenue generation, can communicate to employers the range of experience you have, and if your accomplishments will translate well to their company size, culture and goals. It also frames you as a much more accomplished job candidate, which definitely helps.
5. A nice flow of space and information
A resume isn’t given much time to be read, and a solid block of text on the page will likely be scanned instead of read, while bullet points and summaries will receive more attention. Even your bullet points shouldn’t go overboard, and limit each section to two to five specifics. Not only will this cause you to offer a more well-rounded look at your career that offers equal importance to each role, but the nicely formatted flow of your resume will ensure easy readability that can catch the eye of employers.
6. Job description keywords
Since most resumes are submitted online now, and often go through applicant tracking systems that scan resumes before forwarding them on to hiring managers, it’s important to make sure that the ATS will approve your resume. This is a step to save hiring managers time and avoid looking at irrelevant resumes, but can accidentally weed yours out as well if you don’t meet the standards set by the ATS. Your best luck to make it through is to include keywords from the job description in your resume, and sprinkle them throughout to ensure a natural, relevant resume that reads well and aligns you with the company’s goals and needs.
Though it can feel like writing your resume is a job in itself, the extra time and effort needed will be well worth it when you’re tapped as a great potential hire and can start off on the right foot in the hiring process.

|Jobs/Vacancies / The One-step Method To Ace Your Interview by Dennis192: 11:04am On Dec 14, 2015|
[b][/b]Close your eyes right now and visualize your last interview. Remember how you felt and tap into those sweaty palms and nervous, thumping heartbeat. What was your strategy? How did you prepare? Did you open up or shut down when asked a difficult question?
The one-step method to ace your interview is simply this: cast a vision.
Casting a vision is a phrase that typically floats around the leadership community. Great managers and team leaders are all familiar with the idea of casting a vision: explaining where you are, where you are headed, and how you will get there. You have to rally the troops, articulate the path from point A to point B, and be passionate and clear. You can apply the same technique to interviews.
If you're a student or between jobs, you've probably been given a lot of advice on the best interview practices. You've been told to be honest, be yourself and research the position beforehand. You've been instructed to ask questions and describe projects in which you've been successful. All of this advice is inherently good, but it is also incomplete. Casting a vision encompasses all of these tips and more.
Explain who and where you are
To give potential employers a clear picture, you must be honest and able to discuss past experiences and opportunities where you have been successful. This will better pique the interest of the interviewer and give them an idea of your abilities.
Articulate why you want the job
Do some background research of the position itself beforehand and why the role interests you. By doing this, and by asking questions and relating your own past experience, you will be able to explain why the job is a good fit for you and the existing team.
Draw connections between yourself, the position and the future
If you've done your job up to this point, you've successfully described yourself and displayed passion for and knowledge of the position. Now it's time to seal the deal. Where will you take the team in the short and long term? Why are you the perfect fit? How will you reach new heights with this role?
If you can connect the dots, you can cast the vision. Any good interview is full of passion and authenticity, but a great interview casts a vision for the future, a vision that only the candidate can fill. Be that person in your next interview and you will wow them every time.

|Religion / Is Hell Really Full Of Good People? by Dennis192: 2:18pm On Nov 08, 2015|
In the book of Luke 18:9, Jesus told a parable about a man who went to the temple to pray. The pharisee stood by himself and prayed this prayer:"i thank you,God,that i am not a sinner, for i dont cheat, i dont sin, and i dont commit adultery, i fast twice a week, and i give you a tenth of my income as u cammanded". I tend to understand that the man was a good man because he does al dat d law ask him to do. But still yet the bible condemn the pharasee. So i dont knw, is hell really full of good people?

|Education / Re: 3 Millionaire Entrepreneurs You Probably Haven't Heard Of (and How They Did by Dennis192: 8:00am On Dec 03, 2014|
The story:Natori moved tothe U.S. from the Philippines in 1964 to attend college in New York. She found the country to be a complete 180-degree difference in every single way -- the weather, the food and even the humor was a culture shock. Despite her homesickness, she finished her degree in economics and went to work for Bache & Company. She moved to Merrill Lynch in 1971, but felt called to entrepreneurship and longed to build her own company.
In 1974, after becoming a U.S. citizen, Natori and her husband explored the different ways she could pursue this desire. Her chance came in 1977, when she presented a nightgown she had created to a buyer at Bloomingdales and wound up translating that opportunity into work as a designer. Natori went on to grow the company to almost 400 employees and recently released a line of low-cost products for Target.
3. Heidi Ganahl, founder of Camp Bow Wow, and motivational speaker
Who is she:The founder of doggie-daycare chain Camp Bow Wowand a powerful motivational speaker.
The lesson to learn:Just because your dream has a detour doesn’t mean you’ve the end of the road.
The story: Ganahland her husband, Bion Flammang, came up with the idea to start a doggie-daycare company together after struggling to find care for their own dogs when they traveled. In 1994, tragedy struck, and Flammang was killed in a plane crash. Although the dream had to be put on hold for the next several years as Ganahl adjusted to life as a single mother raising their children, she never gave up.
In December 2000, Ganahl turned her lifelong passion for dogs into the first Camp Bow Wow in Denver. When her second location opened in 2002, a client suggested she might want to consider franchising. After being featured on AOL, the business took off. Franchises now exist throughout the U.S. and Canada (including the original Denver location, which Heidi sold to focus on the overall business), and the company is worth more than $80 million.
Have a great business ideaof your own? There’s no reason you can’t join this list someday! As the stories of Okamura, Natori and Ganahl teach us, If you’re willing to work hard and take action, anything is possible.
|Education / Re: 3 Millionaire Entrepreneurs You Probably Haven't Heard Of (and How They Did by Dennis192: 7:56am On Dec 03, 2014|
Here are three great examples of millionaire entrepreneurs, as well as the lessons they can teach us:
1. Haruhisa Okamura, founder and CEO of Adways
Who is he:Founder and CEO of one of the largest Japanese tech companies. The company, which is focused on online advertising, recorded revenue of over $221 million in 2013.
The lesson to learn:Don’t let your lack of education slow you down or determine the possibilities you have in business or in life.
The story:Okamura dropped outof school when he was 16 to take a job as a salesman. He had trouble relating to his peers and making friends, so he decided that the workforce would be a better fit for him. In 2000, with the Internet craze sweeping the world, Okamura became fascinated by online companies and their IPOs.
In February 2001, he started Adwayswith only $10,000. Although he lost $5,000 of that money on a failed attempt to develop email-marketing software, he persevered. With a savvy equity-stake offer, he hired talented engineer Sanki Nishiguchi, who became the company’s CTO.
Beginning with an affiliate model, Adways grew quickly, especially after pivoting to focus on mobile technologies. In 2006 the company went public. Okamura was just 25 years old. The company now has offices around the world.
2. Josie Natori, founder and CEO of Natori Company
Who is she: Founder and CEO of a high-end women’s sleepwear company, which has expanded to include fragrances, eyewear and home décor. In 2011, the company recorded $150 million in retail sales.
The lesson to learn:Being an immigrant (or experiencing some other obstacle to entry) doesn’t have to be a barrier to success.
|Education / Re: 3 Millionaire Entrepreneurs You Probably Haven't Heard Of (and How They Did by Dennis192: 7:51am On Dec 03, 2014|
When it comes to wealthy entrepreneurs, there are a lot of names you probably think of immediately, such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Richard Branson. However, there are plenty of millionaires out there that you likely haven’t heard of, which is a shame, because you can learn a lot from their stories.
