- Avoid the next quarrel: Never lose temper at the same time. Don't let the sun set on your quarrels (Never prolong fights if at all started). It is OK to say "I am sorry"
- Do not expect perfection from your spouse: Marriage is coming together of two imperfect beings. Don't expect wife or husband to like this or that, accept them as they are.
- Be a Good Listener: Think before speaking, it is a good idea to weigh before you speak. You are master of unspoken words but slave of spoken words. Better than listening from ear is listening through mind (with attention) and better than that is listening from heart.
- Be a good forgiver: Some people forgive but they keep the memory alive or they forgive conditionally. Forgiveness should be complete and unconditional.
- Grow in the spirit of humility: Be humble. Egos bring arrogance which divide and separate people.
- Learn the art of appreciation: We all like to be appreciated. Always appreciate in front of others. Never criticize in a company of friends and relatives, you will get opportunities in privacy.
- Do not argue: Winning love and friendship is far greater than winning an argument. It is OK to discuss with a open mind. Learn to win love and affection rather than arguments.
- Develop healthy sense of humor: Learn to laugh and be cheerful. It is a great tonic for healthy living and being accepted by friends. It is important to laugh with others and NOT at others.
- Always lend a helpful hand: You will win over if you have this attitude of offering a helpful hand with or without asking.
- Bring GOD back into your home: This is one of the most important one. Have a common time for prayers. It brings families together. Families that pray together stay together

Never react in anger or blow your stack. If you're so POd that you can't trust yourself to be calm, then go away and come back when you can. The workplace is no place for that kind of behavior, period.
2. Attack the problem, not the person.
When you criticize or attack someone personally, you risk burning a bridge. Focus on the real issues at hand. You know, what the company actually pays you to do.
3. Be open and honest.
The second you grit your teeth, cross your arms, and close your mind, you give in to stubborn childish behavior. But if you remain open and keep your wits about you, you'll manage to do the right thing in a tough situation.
4. Don't lose perspective.
Try to remember that you're being paid to do a job, not to fight a war. The workplace is about business. You know, customers, products, that sort of thing. It's not about you … or him.
5. Try to be empathetic.
Put yourself in other shoes and try to understand her perspective. If you can't or you're not sure what it is, then ask; you're assumptions may be wrong. If she does the same, next thing you know, you have detente.
6. Take the high road.
That doesn't mean be quiet when something needs to be said. It means say it at a time and place and in a manner that's reasonable and respectful of all present. If you kick yourself afterwards, then you probably didn't do it right.
7. Have faith in yourself.
The workplace is no place for yes-men. You were hired for a reason, and it's not to blindly march along with the pack. If that's what management wants, you work for a crappy company.
Focus your thoughts and energy elsewhere.
When there is a pain that will not go away,
Overwhelm it with an even greater amount of joy.
It serves no useful purpose to get mired in despair over things
you cannot control.
It makes much more sense to do the very best,
to achieve the very most, With those things you do control.
You can choose where to focus your energy and attention.
Focus on those areas where you can have a powerful positive impact.
Yes, it can be easy to get caught up in the negativity
of the moment.
Yet it also can be surprisingly easy to shift your focus toward
the positive, Productive things you can do.
You are never obligated to be miserable.
If you really want to contribute to life,
Set your sights on the value you're able to create.
Don't despair over the darkness that is beyond your control.
Instead, shine your own light so brightly that the darkness

Quite interesting facts although I cant really validate :)
In fact, people who rely on internal pictures cannot see a negative at all. In order for Tammy to process the command of not falling, her nine-year-old brain had to first imagine falling, then try to tell the brain not to do what it just imagined. Whereas, my eight-year-old brain instantly had an internal image of me hanging on tightly.
The only way to properly visualize not doing something is to actually find a word for what you want to do and visualize that.
Ø But: Negates any words that are stated before it.
Ø Try: Presupposes failure.
Ø If: Presupposes that you may not.
Ø Might: It does nothing definite. It leaves options for your listener..
Ø Would Have: Past tense that draws attention to things that didn't actually happen.
Ø Should Have: Past tense that draws attention to things that didn't actually happen implies guilt
Ø Could Have: Past tense that draws attention to things that didn't actually happen but the person tries to take credit as if it did happen.
Ø Can't/Don't: These words force the listener to focus on exactly the opposite of what you want. This is a classic mistake that parents and coaches make without knowing the damage of this linguistic error.
Toxic phrase: "Don't drop the ball!"

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Fear exists at the heart of every unfulfilled dream. If there is something in our life that we want, we are going to have to confront some fears in order to get it. Having confidence in our ability to achieve goals, to move forward in the face of fear, and to accomplish our desires, is critical if we are going to live a life that is personally fulfilling and meaningful. Not everyone is born with natural confidence. Some people struggle, and for many people, difficult circumstances in their own lives can really impact their self confidence.
So, no matter how busy you are, remember to drink a lot of water and urinate regularly. Once you form the habit of holding back urine, it will ultimately damage your kidneys.
If after having cold, symptoms like blood in urine, swelling, headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, poor appetite appear, you should consult your doctor immediately, to assess your kidney functions, and start treatment if compromised.
It is suggested that protein intake should be 0.8g/kg per day. This means that a person with 50 kg should consume 40g of protein per day. Meat consumption per day should be limited within 300g.

This will ultimately help control your condition while also helping to preserve your kidneys.

Why Should I Analyze My Thoughts:
b) What exactly is the issue? Is this something impacting (or going to impact) me or my family? Can I define my issue/question in one sentence clearly so that I can focus on the solution?
c) How: can I resolve this issues? Is this doable? If not, can I take advice from others?. If I have the solution then what are the steps which needs to be taken?
The world's first artificial replacement heart has been transplanted into a patient.
The device, which will run for at least five years, was given to a male patient.
Medics said he was awake, talking and "responding well" yesterday after Wednesday's operation.
The heart weighs 2lb – three times the weight of a real heart – and contains bovine tissue and sensors that adapt the blood flow.
Developed by Airbus owner EADS, it is powered by batteries worn outside the body.
If it is made widely available it is expected to cost about £150,000.
The operation took place at Georges Pompidou Hospital in Paris.
Surgeon Alain Carpentier said: "It's about giving patients a normal social life."
Processes are everywhere; Production Process, Construction Process, Delivery Process etc. A process by definition is defined as a series of actions performed in order to complete a specific task. But that's the basic definition because much more than that can be and should be achieved by ensuring Process Excellence and Process Governance. For example, Cost reduction, ease of tasks execution, efficiency enhancement, stake holder engagement, time & scope control and customer satisfaction can be acquired by Process Excellence.
Processes are the core catalysts of any company. High quality processes results in high outcomes and vice versa. Hence the more a company ensures excellence and governance of its processes the more successful it becomes in many ways as in terms of high profit margins, high customer retention, highly engaged employees, more productivity, less faults and so on.
Sometimes your biggest weakness can become your biggest strength. Take, for example, the story of one 10-year-old boy who decided to study judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a devastating car accident. The boy began lessons with an old Japanese judo master. The boy was doing well, so he couldn't understand why, after three months of training the master had taught him only one move. "Sensei," the boy finally asked, "Shouldn't I be learning more moves?" "This is the only move I know, but this is the only move you'll ever need to know," the sensei replied. Not quite understanding, but believing in his teacher, the boy kept training. Several months later, the sensei took the boy to his first tournament. Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first two matches. The third match proved to be more difficult, but after some time, his opponent became impatient and charged; the boy deftly used his one move to win the match. Still amazed by his success, the boy was now in the finals. This time, his opponent was bigger, stronger, and more experienced. For a while, the boy appeared to be overmatched. Concerned that the boy might get hurt, the referee called a time-out. He was about to stop the match when the sensei intervened. "No," the sensei insisted, "Let him continue." Soon after the match resumed, his opponent made a critical mistake: he dropped his guard. Instantly, the boy used his move to pin him. The boy had won the match and the tournament. He was the champion. On the way home, the boy and sensei reviewed every move in each and every match. Then the boy summoned the courage to ask what was really on his mind. "Sensei, how did I win the tournament with only one move?" "You won for two reasons," the sensei answered. "First, you've almost mastered one of the most difficult throws in all of judo. And second, the only known defense for that move is for your opponent to grab your left arm." The boy's biggest weakness had become his biggest strength.
There was a farmer who had a horse and a goat..One day, the horse became ill and he called the doctor,
who said: - Well, your horse has a virus.
He must take this medicine for three days.
I'll come back on the 3rd day and if he's not better,
we're going to have to put him down.
Nearby, the goat listened closely to their conversation.
On the second day, they gave him the medicine and left.
- Come on buddy, get up or else you're going to die!
Let's go! One, two, three....
On the third day, they came to give him the medicine
and the vet said:
- Unfortunately, we're going to have to put him down tomorrow.
- Listen pal, it's now or never!
Get up, come on! Have courage!
Come on! Get up! Get up!
That's it, slowly! Great!
Come on, one, two, three... Good, good.
Now faster, come on...... Fantastic! Run, run more!
Yes! Yay! Yes! You did it, you're a champion!!!
All of a sudden, the owner came back,
saw the horse running in the field and began shouting:
- It's a miracle! My horse is cured.
We must have a grand party.
Let's kill the goat and serve the meet to all.The Lesson:
Nobody truly knows which employee actually deserves the merit of success, or who's actually contributing the necessary support to make things happen. So you really need to learn the art to market what you have been contributing towards. This does not have to be a "look busy do nothing" approach, instead, stats should speak the truth so market yourself with quantifiable contributions.
a) Avoid thinking about unnecessary things specially related to others. Mind your own business. Posses a focused mind.
b) Stop comparing yourself to others. It's an insult to yourself. You are a unique soul and you are independent on your living, your decisions and your destiny.
c) Don't think of monetary gains too much. Excessive love for money and assets is the root of most of stresses.
d) Develop the habit of forgiving and letting things go off. If you are keeping the grudge in your brains for longer durations, you are killing yourself. Stress is a slow poison which deepens its roots your brain and destroy your physical and mental health.
e) Read quality quotes or articles on positivity and try to absorb the message. This will kill the germs of negativity.
f) Practice the habit of gratitude. Stop complaining, criticizing and blaming. When a negative thought comes in, convert it to positive by looking at the positive side of the issue.
g) Instead of thinking about your 'wants' too much, think about your needs. This will reduce the magnitude of your focus because usually needs are limited but wants are too many. Adapt simple life style as it reduces unnecessary socio-economical issues
