Committed Or Trying?

Jeanna Gabellini

It's funny how often I have tricked myself into thinking that I have a certain end result in mind but upon further examination, I notice that I'm really committed to something else. For instance, in the past I'd tell myself that I wanted to create a certain amount of income a month. Yet, month after month I wouldn't hit my target.

I'd keep plugging along with the same strategy for creating teleclasses and selling my products. I haven't had a strategy for attracting my ideal coaching clients in a decade so I didn't give that part of my business much attention. So why wasn't I nailing my income goal?

The answer was simple. I was not committed to having the income I said I wanted. I was trying to hit my target but I didn't spend my time focused on the outcome I desired. I spent most of my time worrying about what would happen if I didn't meet the goal. I kept thinking about how I hated not having enough money to do what I wanted to do when I wanted to do it.

Does this sound familiar? I also knew that the strategies I was using in my business didn't feel quite right but didn't know what to change. Most people in my position would continue to look for the "right" strategy or actions to increase their income. That is no more of a commitment to the desired end result than I had. You're still "trying" for a goal but nothing about you is committed, to winning.

Being committed to a desire is not about how passionate you are about the desire. I was very passionate about making more money. But I didn't really believe that I could have more than enough money in my bank account. I was really committed to creating the same amount and struggling to even get what I had.

Finally I said, "THAT'S IT! It's time for me to have more than enough money!" In an instant, I got committed to upleveling my income. I made that decision and I felt all my fear melt away. I didn't know what I was going to do different at that moment, I just knew my perspective had changed. I was no longer trying, I was just going to have that money!

I was excited. I had a new bounce in my step. Within a month I had new strategies for my business and I didn't have to hunt them down. They came to me easily. I also had a whole new set of people step up to support me in my income commitment that were not there prior to me making a decision that I was serious about making that money.

Do a quick check-in for yourself right now. What are your top three focuses right now? Are you committed or trying? Do you feel that you are "no kidding" going to win immediately or do you feel it's a someday goal...that eventually you'll have what you desire? On a scale of 1-10 how fully do you believe that you get to have exactly what you want when you want it?

Your answers will let you know if you've truly made a decision and commitment to have your desired outcome.

How to Graduate Early

Michael M B

One of the main reasons why so many individuals want to bypass college, apart from the high tuition fee, is the long time it takes to graduate.

Many high school students, for a variety of reasons ranging from personal to financial, choose to start working straight out of school over going to college. This not only impacts the quality of work they get, but also their earnings and advancement opportunities.

The good news is that it is possible to cut the time you need to spend in college and graduate early. So, if you want to learn how to graduate early, read on.

One of the surest methods of graduating early from college is to enroll for a degree that requires minimal time commitment, such as an Associate's degree which can be completed in two years as opposed to the four years needed to finish a Bachelor's degree.

Associate's college degree programs are available in a wide range of fields and focus mostly on applied knowledge rather than theory. While the scope of learning with an Associate's degree is limited, it can help you get a variety of entry-level white collar jobs.

Fast Track Graduation

Those who are wondering how to graduate college early probably already know that many schools also offer accelerated degree programs that allow students to finish their education in a much shorter span of time than usual. Such programs are available at all levels - from Associate's to Doctoral degrees.

While the duration of an accelerated program will depend on your school, level of degree, and many other factors, students must know that all of them involve very intense coursework, no or minimal mid semester breaks, and little time to participate in extra curricular activities since your entire curriculum has to be condensed into the fast track schedule of an accelerated degree.

Accelerated degree programs may be offered on campus, online, or include elements of both classroom and distance learning. Such programs, known as hybrid degrees, are extremely popular among working professionals who want to graduate early, but also want more flexibility in terms of class schedules to manage their other commitments.

Also, by minimizing the time you spend in college, you'll be able to save money on tuition and other miscellaneous expenses such as lodging, food, fuel, etc. Another advantage of an accelerated degree is that it allows you to join the workforce sooner than a normal-paced college program.

But before you enroll for an accelerated degree, you must evaluate if the benefits - financial and otherwise - of such a degree are worth the heavier course load, faster learning pace, and the limited availability of time to build relationships and take part in other activities.

California College San Diego (CCSD) has trained graduates for new careers in high demand jobs since 1978. This California College, located in San Diego, offers Associate's and, Bachelor's degrees in healthcare, business, information technology and graphic arts. CCSD also provides accelerated degree programs with its FastFlex option.

Being the Best in Your Area

Rabison Shumba

There are many vocations, and areas of specialization in life. What is important however is the fact that you need to be the best in your area of endeavor. Gone are the days when you could have half hearted efforts in the way you handled your job. Gone are the moments where you did as you pleased. Now is the time for excellence in your area. Now is the period for all stakeholders around you to get more than what they bargain for. If it is an employer; make them feel they cannot do without you due to the results you produce; if it a client, make them forget of all their problems due to the quality of service and customer focus you have. Simply put; be the best at what you do. Just how does one become the best. Is it something that one walks into unintentionally. Is this something that someone buys off the shelf? I tell you that becoming the best comes at a cost; it comes with a price tag attached to it. It does not always come easy if at all. It calls for your personal effort, personal sacrifice and indeed personal resources.

- Study in your area to your highest level - the more you know about your area academically, the better chances you stand of becoming a voice of reason, a person to reckon with and one who is a master of his/her own destiny. People will acknowledge you as the best if you really try your best in terms of devoting to study and personal sacrifice of the luxuries you would have enjoyed.

- Discipline - This is the separation mark between those who make it to the best level and those who become comfortable with mediocrity. There is no room for indiscipline if you will become the best. Tame your emotions, tame your passions and temptations. Discipline your mind to think BEST. Discipline your body to accept the fact that you are aiming for the best in all spheres of life. Discipline separates athletes, business people, professionals and so on. You cannot be the best police officer and yet lacking discipline. To be disciplined is to follow the standards and policies you set for yourself regardless of lack of comfort. S

- Observe what others do - For you to be called the best then you need to check out what other people in the area of your endeavor do. when you observe them do, you are able to find your place. You can easily observe what others are missing and you capitalize on that and become not only the first to offer an alternative but the best in your offering. Become different in your approach and you will soar higher than everyone you can ever imagine of.

- Choose to be excellent - You make a personal commitment and vow to be the best. Excellence is a by product of a personal commitment to the same. If you do not honor your own word and cannot trust your own promise even to yourself then becoming the BEST will remain a dream. Make a choice in your mind to be the best. Mediocrity can never be excellent. It may be close to excellent than poor work but it is not good enough. It is not alright to say "I tried to be excellent". Just be the best and not pretend to be what you are not. Becoming the best is first a choice you make before you implement it in reality. If you can win the mental battle by making the choice then you are half way there.

- Go beyond theory, practice - It is not good enough to learn in theory and become the best academic without showing it in real life how it must be done. Become the best in both theory (head knowledge) and practice (actual presentation and action)

- Speak of your area as someone in authority - When you are the best in any area, you become an authority figure, a voice that is worth listening to. Boldness in your area creates an expectation of good things from others. When you shy away from speaking with confidence then people write you off as the best voice to speak even though you have sense in all you say.

Business Administration School and Career Training Options

Renata McGee

Many business decisions need to be addressed in a managerial fashion. Businesses have to be able to control situations and provide the best possible outcome for everyone involved. Learning how to work with employees and executives to maintain a certain level of professionalism and office harmony is available inside a business administration degree program.

Schools provide students with all the necessary knowledge to work directly with a business by serving as an administrator. This can entail performing many duties. The most notable tasks include:

  • Organizing staff
  • Creating a financially sound business
  • Working with staff to manage and resolve concerns
Colleges and universities dedicate whole programs to this area of study because students have to learn to work with a business in two main ways. Business and administrative skills work together to prepare students to enter a career as a business administrator. These two aspects provide students with specialized knowledge on how to not only understand a business but lead one.

Education in business administration is obtainable from the associate's to doctorate level of study. Entry-level careers as assistants and sales managers can be acquired by gaining an associate's or bachelor's degree. In order to get into mid-range or executive managerial positions students need to continue education at the graduate level. Earning a master's degree or a doctorate provides students with the most opportunities in the workplace.

In order to gain a certain level of leadership inside the business environment students need to begin education at the bachelor's degree level. Programs are dedicated to teaching students how to handle job responsibilities inside the complex business world. Concentrated courses work to develop skills in:

  • management
  • decision-making
  • accounting
  • marketing
...and more. Students that enter a master's degree program develop strong leadership skills that are needed to effectively change a business environment. To become top leaders schools provide doctor of business administration degrees.

To create effective leaders in business, schools concentrate on providing students with the right instruction to help them demonstrate their abilities in the workplace. Traditional campus learning centers on providing students with the knowledge of how to identify and bring about change in organizational problems. In order to begin the process of change administrators have to be able to develop, maintain, and motivate employees. This is done so the work place runs smoothly and everyone including executives are working towards the same goal. Students take many classes in order to correctly manage a business environment. Courses can include operations management, corporate finance, and business law.

Accredited business administration schools offer education that prepares student to succeed inside the workplace. The first step to entering a desired career is finding the right school and program. Those that carry full accreditation from agencies like the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business ( http://www.aacsb.edu ) will provide you with the best quality education possible. Once this is accomplished students can start their education and work towards becoming an educated member of the business industry.

Going Back to College and Don't Know What to Study?

Lisa Claycomb

The thought of going back to college can be intimidating regardless of your age or generation. There are so many things to think about and do before you even get there. Making a solid career plan and choosing a specific course of study will help you build confidence and stay on the right track for your future.

Getting a Valuable Education
When planning to return to college, one of the most important things to think about is getting a valuable education that will lead to a solid career. If you're going to spend the time and money to get a degree, you should know how it will benefit you when you complete the program.

Choosing a Course of Study
Not all colleges and universities offer the same degree programs, so it is essential that you know what you are going to study before you choose a school. It is also a good idea to do some research and exploration before settling on a major. What sounds good to you in theory may not be something that you'll actually enjoy once you start working in the field.

When deciding what course of study to pursue, think about careers that will allow you to do what you enjoy. You'll be much more motivated to go to work if you're doing something you like. When you have a few ideas, learn what people in those careers do all day before making a choice. If you wouldn't enjoy the day-to-day duties of a particular job, find something else. You want to pick something that you can get excited about every day.

Selecting a College or University
Once you know what you're going to study, you can start looking at colleges and universities that offer the curriculum that you need. Your plan may involve attending a community college first and then transferring to a university, or attending a school that specializes in a particular area of study. You'll want to have an outline of the steps you need to take.

Mapping Out Your Plan
After you have determined what you are going to study, where you will attend school and what your major will be, the next step is to determine what courses you will need to take to accomplish your goal. This will not only keep you on track, but it will prevent you from taking extra courses that cost you money but don't count toward your degree. It will help you achieve your objective while spending the minimum amount of time and money.

Make a Plan for Your New Career
Making a plan before you go back to college can make what appears to be a daunting undertaking into an exciting adventure. Choosing your major first, then your school, and then mapping out your coursework will put you on the right track to your new career.

Lisa enjoys writing on a variety of topics, but her primary focus is in the area of career planning. You can check out her career planning blog at http://www.thecareercrafter.com.

Being More Productive - Cutting Down Social Media

Matt McCarten

The internet is a wonderful thing. It has opened up communication and our social lives, but has started to harm the way we work. I'm sure its not just me who has the internet jitters, every few minutes or so getting curious if anybody has sent them a tweet, written something on their blog, Facebook page or sent them a good old fashioned email.

These jitters, this constant checking of mails, tweets and blogs is eating away at our time, it's very easy to lose hours, and at the end of the work day wonder what you've actually done that was productive!

Here are a few tips to help you along your way to getting some work done!

Set a schedule - The easiest way forward. After every 25 minutes of working, reward yourself with 5 minutes of internet time so you can check your various social sites - you must use all of these 5 minutes, when your time is up you must continue to work for another 25 minutes. This system is continued throughout the day

Switch it off - You may find this very difficult, but if you have an important piece of work or a looming deadline, the only solution is to simply switch the internet off and return when you have finished

Just use ONE - Try just using one of your networking sites whilst at work, be it twitter or Facebook or just your email, or even better try consolidating all of your various networks into a desktop gadget so you can keep on top of happening without stopping what you are doing

I hope these brief words have been helpful, if you have any other tips, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Find College Textbooks Online

Jerod Kessler

There is nothing more exciting and frightening then finally moving away to college. I remember the day I moved into the dorm room and met my new roommates for the first time. That was the frighting part for me, but after we got to know each other we had alot of great times. Everyone knows that going to college is not a cheap thing to do, but that the $40,000 or more spent to go to college is an investment that will pay you back in years to come. My professor use to tell me he thought it was a good investment to take out loans to live off of rather than working part time, because the part time job took away from my studying time. Well at the time i said there is no way I will take out loans and quit my part time job this man must be crazy. I finished college with a C average, looking back on it now i see what he was saying i could have graduated with A's if i would have applied myself a little more.

With all of this being said i belief taking out the extra loans is a good investment. The better your grades are through college the greater chance you have getting into grad school, and you look more attractive in the hiring process of your new career. With all of the different expenses that arise while in college the one that (if your like me find out the hard way) is a surprise is textbooks. College textbooks can cost $100 to $1,200 a semester. The bookstore on campus will make you want to cry when you hand them $850 and they give you five textbooks that are good for one semester, and alot of times they won't buy them back after the semester is over. After the first trip to the college bookstore i found out real quick that i would not be doing that again.

On-line is a great place to buy, rent, or sell college textbooks. You could possibly find all the books you need for each semester for around $50 to $100. That is a big savings from what it will cost you at the bookstore. The website collegebooksnow.com uses other sites such as amazon to find college textbooks, most of the textbooks used today you can find on this website. So if your in college or getting ready to start find the books you need on-line, it will save you quite a bit.

Collegebooksnow.com helps you find the textbooks you need for college.

See How Easily You Can Learn Anything

James Gladwin

How do you feel when you hear the words "Learn" and "Learning?" Sounds like hard work, doesn't it? After all, learning makes our heads ache, and we only remember the lessons from school that were boring.

But suppose I told you that learning cab be exciting, and fun? That it can be hugely satisfying?

Well, think about it. Remember the day stabiliser wheels were taken off your bike? How about the day you passed your driving test? In fact, if we made a list, we would discover that almost every skill we possess had to be learned.

The key insight is this: we weren't born with the life skills we take for granted. We learned them. They are not dependant on our DNA. They do not depend on our upbringing and circumstances. In fact, research is discovering that we can learn almost anything if we want to.

It doesn't take too long to realise that more or less every action you take, and every thought you have, is something you have learned. And if you analyse learning a little further, you can begin to understand how you learn.

So, how can we learn how to learn again?

Let's take an example we are all familiar with. It could be learning to drive a car, or bake a cake, of swim, or ride a pony, or tie your shoe laces or touch type. Whatever. But let's take an example we are all familiar with: riding a bike.

Remember when you first began? You probably fell off more times you can remember. But you kept going. Then you progressed to an erractic wobble across the yard, "Hey, dad, watch me!" But you attained a level of success which allowed you to progress from wobbling dangerously to riding confidently. You didn't need to think about it. And - before too long - you could manage gears, take your hands off the steering bars and put your feet up on front of you.

Learning to ride bike had become as easy as, well, falling off it!

So, you see, that was an example of successful learning. But sometimes - often - you attempt to learn something and do not succeed.

Take learning a language, for example. Remember the language CD or audio you downloaded, or language phone app you bought with such enthusiasm? Where are they now? And how fluent are you? Sorry to remind you about this. But you gave up.

You see, we often don't learn as quickly as we anticipate. And we stop.

But that effort has not been wasted.


Because we were still learning. We learned a lesson that we have never, ever forgotten, and it is one that each and every one of us has learned extremely well.

The lesson is this: We learned how to give up.

Strange as it may seem, learning to give up is something that we have learned just as successfully as every other "life lesson" we have learned.

So we are learning superstars - just don't become an expert in giving up!

My best to you.

Info to Avoid Fraud With Free College Money

MIke Lesly

Going to college can bring upon a mountain of debt. There are plenty of financial aid available for you to get money for your college education, but be advised that there are also many another college money scams around. These scammers are looking for any chances to cheat college students desperately seeking financial assistance. You should be very careful when hunting for financial aid for college to avoid falling into the traps of college money scams.

The big money college scams are the Federal or personal loans scams, and the second scam are fake scholarships or free money that students don't have to pay back. Most frequently, the scammers mail their offerings directly to students' or parents' homes, demanding money up front, this initial payment are supposedly to cover application processing fees. According to the Federal Trade Commission enquiry on financial support, scholarship or loan scams generally cheat people out of $50 to $1,000 when paying for these application fees. The results shows that over 100,000 families are being swindled each year and is still increasing. This situation may become worse due to today's liquidity problems, the college money scams may drastically increase because less lenders being in the market, and more students seeking financial aid.

So, how can students recognize a scam when looking for financial aid? At Times, it can be tough to differentiate between the valid loan / scholarship suppliers than the scammers. Try and remember this, the golden rule is to avoid any offers that just appear too good to be true, and keep an eye out for words with typos or firms that don't supply any contact info.

There are numerous college money scammers that send letters on loans offers using letterheads that look really like the Department of Education. They fake the letterhead to make them look very real. The reality is that the Department of Education never solicit consumers to loans, so any mail or email received from any government agency should be illegitimate and very well be a scam. Remember that, scholarships and grants should not contain any up front fees.

There are plenty of ways to get funding for you or your childrens' college education. Always be careful of college money scams, they are around to cheat your money. When you receive any money offers either loans, scholarships, or grants that look to be too good or carry the above signs, just avoid them at all costs. Trust me, you will yourself a lot of head aches later on.

Yes! You can Get College Education For Free,

What I've Learned From Watching American Idol

Robert Pagliarini

Let me come clean. I use some of my other 8 hours to watch American Idol. I know what you're thinking, "But aren't you all about maximizing productivity/efficiency and trying to squeeze as much from each day as possible?" Yup. But there has to be some time for fun and brainless recreation, and it turns out I've actually learned a valuable lesson from the show.

American Idol is not about getting the most votes and it's not about trying to appeal to as many people as possible. It's not really even about winning. It's about carving out a unique niche and taking risks.

Look at some of the past season's winners and losers. The most successful contestants have been both winners, such as Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, and "losers" like Chris Daughtry and Kellie Pickler. The latter two didn't win, but they got record deals and have sold millions of albums -- a lot more than many of the "winners." Winning doesn't guarantee success -- just ask Taylor Hicks who was dropped from his record label.

So what's the key to being one of the success stories, if not an actual winner on the show? Taking risks. Week after week I see the majority of contestants playing it safe -- just trying to capture a few more votes and get through to the next round. And week after week the newest judge, Kara DioGuardi, hammers them to "show us what kind of artist you are" and "put your personality into the song."

Of course, if you stand out you'll get noticed -- and you might get criticized. Ouch. What's worse than that? Well, how about being faceless and forgotten? Playing it safe might keep you around a few more weeks, though you'll probably be voted off the show eventually. But the real problem with playing it safe is that once you're out of sight, you'll be out of mind as well. I'd rather be voted off earlier but have created a brand for myself than stick around longer and be forgotten.

Likewise in the real world. Whether you're in an interview, on a sales call, or in a bar trying to get a date, playing it safe isn't going to get you anywhere. Here are a couple of ideas on how to ditch safe and stand out:

  • Re-think risk. Safe isn't really safe -- it might feel good, but it will guarantee failure. The folks on the Titanic had two choices. They could jump onto a small life raft in the cold dark waters, or they could do the safe thing and stay on the huge and "unsinkable" vessel. In this case, the "safe" thing got you killed and the "risky" thing saved your life. Think success vs. failure instead of safe vs. risky.
  • Be memorable. Do something nobody else is doing. Going on a job interview? Bring a list of 101 specific things you can do for the company on day one. Or build a PowerPoint presentation around your resume. Look at what everyone else is doing, and then do something different.

It's every contestant's worst fear: When Idol judge Simon Cowell says the "k" word -- karaoke -- it means you gave a forgettable, second-rate performance. Stop living karaoke. Get out there and own the stage. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Swing a Four-Year College Degree in One Year Without Going Bananas!

Ron Springer

A lot of people out there need a quick way to get educated. They have been forced out of jobs they've held for years, and now can't reapply unless they have a college degree. Some have decided to accept a lower standard of living rather than go back to college. Some have decided on a trade school, as they are quicker and often promise some kind of employment. Most dread the thought of enduring the four to eight years college would require.

What if there was a much faster way to get through college? I faced the same dilemma a little over a year ago. I lost the job I was doing for years and couldn't get it back. All doors were closed to those without a college diploma. And that didn't mean an associate's degree (a two year degree), it meant a full four-year bachelor's degree. I was offended by this. I had the skills to do the job. I had the skills to get the degree: I just chose not to. I figured I had no problem proving myself on any job, so I would just continue to do so throughout my life. That was no longer good enough. In this environment, I couldn't even get an interview unless I had graduated from college.

I decided to go back, and in a little over a year, to my astonishment, I was done. How could this be? With my engineering and mathematical background, I had a theory about it. I figured everything out and summed up that it could be done in a year. Then I proved it to myself by actually pulling it off. Now, doors are opening like never before. I'm interviewing for jobs two levels above where I was before, and for a much higher salary than I made before. I'm looking at more social security money in retirement, more job security while I work, and more respect for every day I don't call in sick!

What I discovered about college was so powerful, I just had to share it. I felt then as I do now, that any ape can get a degree. I want to restore hope, as I have to guess most people have given up on college for the very reasons of time and expense. With this fast college degree program, you can reconsider it. If you are tired of financial difficulties and are as concerned about your future as I was about mine, you can follow what I did and have your degree in record time. Forget the trade school compromise. You can earn a diploma from a fully-accredited university in the same amount of time, and it will be far more valuable to you. Don't wait: get started now. Best of luck to you and I'll see you at the top!

A Lesson on Physics and Motivation

Greg Pierce

There was probably a time in your life when you had a seemingly impossible dream. Perhaps you wanted to travel the whole world. Or maybe you dreamt of climbing the Mt. Everest. You were so passionate then, telling everyone of this dream. Maybe you even did some training in anticipation of the dream becoming a reality. But as the years went by, you have probably stagnated in your current status and the dream has slowly slipped away. Now, the thought of that dream has become just a figment of your imagination. What dampened your hopes of achieving it?

You probably got distracted. You were baffled by people close to you and those who lured you into another endeavor. You stepped off from the path you were taking and went off to another direction.

According to the laws of physics, "a body in motion tends to remain in motion until an outside force acts upon it." This holds true of distractions. Probably, some friends or family members applied the force of discouragement or maybe convinced you to follow a "more worthwhile" venture. Consequently, you ceased your preparations, you stopped your studies or you stopped working in the field you actually love. All those distractions occupied your attention, making you forget about your dream. You just decided one day that dreams are just a fantasy and are not meant to become reality.

You may have met some people who reminisce about things that they used to do. They might mention that they would go back to doing it again someday. This is like the lady who keeps on buying designer clothes that are five sizes smaller. She is hoping that someday, her old figure will come back again and she will have a chance to fit into these clothes. Isn't that a lame excuse for staying away from the risk of living your dream?

When you have a goal that is worth going after, you have to follow the law of critical success in your life. According to this law, you should "always be doing something that moves you closer to your goal." Ask yourself what you are doing to bring you nearer to making your dream come true.

Why don't you put the law of momentum in action? When you act on something which takes you closer to that which you desire, your self confidence will be boosted. Distractions swing you off course or slow your momentum but actions gather your speed forward along your chosen course. Every action gives you more strength to take another. You will gather momentum and you will become unstoppable. You will be liberated from guilt and self pity. The world will envy you.

If you're one of those who find personal motivation quite difficult to do, you can get help. There are professionals who can help boost your self motivation and get you started on your plans or your dreams.

Undergraduate Programs Vs Graduate Programs

David D M

Now that it has been statistically proven that college education leads to higher incomes, the question topmost in everyone's mind is how much education does one need to succeed in the corporate world?

While the answer to that question depends on several factors, there are certain things you can consider before deciding on the level of education you'd like to pursue. For that, you should first understand the difference between undergraduate programs and graduate degrees.

An undergraduate program is a degree that can be earned after high school. The two most common types of undergraduate programs are Associate's and Bachelor's degrees. Graduate programs, on the other hand, are advanced degrees available to those who have graduated from an undergraduate college program. Master's and Doctoral degrees leading to a PhD are the two main graduate degree programs.

Important Differences

The first difference between the two types of degrees is the level of specialization. Depending on your program, an undergraduate degree provides a foundation in a specific field or an overview of several subjects, preparing you for different types of entry-level jobs. Graduate programs, on the other hand, look to build on that foundation. The coursework is far more intense, focused, and specialized in a graduate degree.

Students of graduate degree programs are required to contribute to classroom discussions, take up independent research work, write a thesis and defend it in front of their professors and peers.

The second factor to consider is the employment opportunity offered by both of these degrees. While there are certain professions like law, medicine, academics, etc., where a graduate degree is necessary, there are plenty of career choices open to those who have an undergraduate degree.

That said, graduate programs add value in terms of giving candidates a competitive advantage in the job market, increasing their marketability, and improving their earning potential. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, those who held a Master's degree made $1,257 per week in 2009 as compared to $1,025 per week earned by those who had a Bachelor's degree. (bls.gov/emp/ep_chart_001.htm)

However, the overall time commitment for a graduate degree is greater. A Master's degree is usually for eighteen months to two years. Add to that four years for a Bachelor's degree, and you will need to spend a minimum of six years in school if you want to pursue a graduate degree.

An undergraduate degree, on the other hand, can be earned in much less time - four years if you are going for a Bachelor's and two years if you are pursuing an Associate's. But your earning potential and advancement opportunities may not be the same as they would be if you were to get a Master's degree.

Is Grad School for You?

Grad school is pretty expensive and demands a tremendous amount of hard work. Also, since most students already have a few responsibilities by the time they enter graduate school, you may have to juggle several commitments simultaneously.

Therefore, you should consider well ahead of time if grad school is for you by evaluating your career goals, academic inclination, monetary situation, and personal circumstances.

While some students prefer to headlong straight into a graduate program after completing their undergraduate degree, others prefer to work for a few years and then enter grad school. This has several advantages.

First, you will be able to figure out if you really enjoy working in your chosen field before committing more years to education in that area. Next, you'll carry your valuable industry experience to the classroom and be able to draw much more out of your coursework.

You will also have a few years of savings to put into college tuition and can probably lower your loan dependence. Finally, if you realize this was not the career you'd been dreaming of, a graduate degree in a different field will help you make a switch to another career.

There are benefits of both undergraduate and graduate degrees. Whichever one you choose, make sure you've made the decision with your eyes open.

What Keeps You Up At Night?

Paul Vann

I do not know about you but I wake up in the middle of the night with a lot of amazing thoughts. Does the same thing happen to you?

It it does or if it does not, there is something special about things that keep you up at night. There is one thing I learned about my experiences and that is to write down what I dream and try to figure out the meaning of the dream.

Sometimes what keeps me up at night is the next project I have scheduled to complete. As an entrepreneur I am use to multi-tasking and completing important projects such as proposals and or grant request.

Now that i have children I stay up to check on them to make sure they are sleeping comfortably. My daughter and son want me to check on them at night to make sure they are doing alright.

I always tell people God wakes me up because he has something he wants me to do. I believe it, when I was writing my book, it was inspired by our creator and every morning for a month I woke up at 3:00am, to write another chapter in my book.

Maybe you are not writing a book or have children to check on in the middle of the night, perhaps it is the demands of your job, or unemployment. Maybe you are scheduled to fly on a plane the next day on a business trip and or a family emergency and you can not relax.

There is also a possibility that your spouse snores and it wakes you up at night. I call waking up in the middle of the night because your spouse is sleeping to be a blessing. Why? At least your spouse is home with you and not with someone else, hello!

So I will not push the envelope anymore when it comes to explaining why people wake up in the middle of th night, instead I recommend you take a bath before you go to bed. Say your prayers, meditate and or read prior to going to sleep.

I am an author, thus when I wake up in the middle of the night, you can best believe I use that quiet time to write. It is in my DNA and I love to write and it is a blessing. Remember just because you wake up in the wee hours of the morning, it only means you are human.

12 Ways Not to Choose Your College Or University

Nancy Ziering

You have received your envelopes, and it's time to make that final decision about where you will enroll in college. How do you choose? Here are 12 ways not to choose your college or university.

Don't Choose a College or University Because:

1. Your boyfriend or girlfriend is going there.
2. Your friends are going there.
3. The tuition is low.
4. Because of its party-hearty reputation.
5. The college brochure or university guidebook showed all these fun students sitting under trees.
6. A computer college matching program said this was your best choice. (Although these can be very helpful in narrowing your choices, you need to make the final decision.)
7. You visited just that campus and didn't want to look elsewhere.
8. It's located in your city or state and you didn't consider other locations, even though you could have.
9. It's the one college you and your parents have heard of.
10. You know you'll be accepted there.
11. Because of its prestige.
12. It has the academic program you're looking for, so the campus atmosphere doesn't really matter.

Successful selection of an ideal college for the student can be achieved through proper research. This research should be centered using the following twenty factors to determine which of those factors are most important to the student and family:

1. Location
2. Size
3. Athletic Programs
4. Talent Programs
5. Special Programs

TIP: Small independent colleges are likely to review your entire application, while larger public institutions are more likely to look just at numbers like GPA, and test scores. Not so. Many institutions, large and small, public and private, use complex, multi-step procedures for evaluating applicants. The process tends to be more complex for more selective colleges.

Changing Today

Rob Adelphia

I'm not going to give you a rah-rah spiel with a think positive twist. Can that work for some of the people some of the time? It's in the ballpark, sort of. But, what I will offer is 100% effective. Every time! I didn't invent it, so I won't take the credit. But, will it work? Yes.

Some people have listened to many hours of the world's top-notch motivational and self-help guru's (including me). They have read all the must have books and even gave them to friends and family members (me, too). Those who've had some success point to this book or that tape as the reason. And, those that haven't had success may point to the same book or tape but with blame (guilty, your honor).

They're both incorrect.

Does this next demonstration sound at all familiar?

Ready to change his life Johnny goes right down to We Sell The Latest Bookstore and is enraptured by the wonderful selection of close your eyes and make a wish books. He can't choose so he buys six of them. Straight home. No time for that frappamochalattachai (with skim please). Johnny boy gets to reading. As he does, he chuckles in agreement with the author wondering how he ever managed through life without these nuggets of wisdom. He pours through it and he is ready to show the world the new improved Johnny.

But, wait.

Johnny demands a recount. His life is not better a month down the road. As a matter of fact, he put ten pounds back on for the five he lost (and it took him a much shorter time to do it!). He watches T.V. instead of reading. He knows his life was destined for run-of-the-mill, eked out living. Motivational and self-help books don't work and Johnny swears he'll never read another one.

For a while he doesn't.

A year later Johnny's friend tells him about the newest, bestest, self-help author ever. Johnny reads the authors' series of best selling books titled, The Newest and Bestest You (1,2 and 3). He reads them again. He can't believe the insight.

The profundity. The timeliness.

Two years later a brazened Johnny has lost 25 pounds. He has started a business that is turning a hefty profit. He rarely watches TV but instead chooses challenging and thought-provoking books and articles. And, of course, he is working on all the classics.

Johnny isn't about to welcome the old Johnny back because he likes his present life way too much. He'll fight to keep it.


What changed from the former Johnny to the latter Johnny?

Before we check back with the new and popular Johnny, let us take a ride back in time to June 3-5th 1989.

Beginning on the evening of June 3rd, 1989 the People's Liberation Army of China went about clearing the Tiananmen Square of protesters. The hundreds of thousands of Chinese civilians (including a large number of college students) were seeking democratic reform and economic change. They were spurred to action by the recent death of Hu Yaobang an official who was pro-democracy. Please study this event in depth, but for the purpose of this writing we will abbreviate. Tanks roll in (late evening of June 3rd) and by 5:40 am on the 4th of June the crowd had been dispersed resulting in death and injury (numbers of which are disputed). As the tanks were departing on June 5th, they approached an intersection on Chang'an Avenue (Eternal Peace), a man who has since been dubbed 'tank man' positions himself in front of the leading tank. He boldly stands firm in front of a piece of metal weighing in at over 100,000 pounds. The tank attempts to go around, but, the tank man is not swayed and stays in front. Then, the unthinkable. The tank engines are shut off. We are talking about one of the most powerful nations in the world, known for taking swift actions toward any resemblance of dissidence. As if this couldn't get any better, he then climbs atop the tank to have a brief discussion with the occupants.

Conversation concluded, he descends to ground level. The tank engines are started and the lead tank begins forward. Again, the tank man plants himself in the path of the lead tank. Once again, the tanks halt. Shortly thereafter the tank man is hurried from the front of the formation and out of camera shot. It is still a mystery as to the outcome or whereabouts of the tank man. I can tell you this much: his memory lives on.

And on.


Now, I have some questions for you:

Was this caused by a motivational speaker?

Reading a self-help book?

Audio tapes or CD's?

I highly doubt these were near his realm of reality on this date. I would further surmise that this 'tank man' didn't wake up that morning with an idea to stop oncoming tanks. He probably wasn't a careful student of wushu (martial art). I don't think he was a thrill seeker. But, that's what he did. He did one simple thing. He purposed to take action. And, then, he took action.

An action that named him to Time Magazine's top 100 most influential people of the 20th century. An action that has spurred on hearts and actions ever since. You may be able to think of many other brave and daring enterprises that have been afforded through the centuries. The tank man is close to the pinnacle for me. Remember, he had no army behind him, just in front of him.

Let's get back to our boy Johnny.

All of a sudden Johnny is a popular guy. People seek him out at gatherings. His energy is contagious and people try to bottle it. Some friends he's known for a long time tell him they always knew he'd make it big. Mom says how proud she is of her little Johnny. Before I go further with Johnny's story, let me tell you some more about him. Johnny is married (14 years), has three children and a dog named spot (a mini pinscher). His hair is receding more than a little. No college. His rhythm is saved for the steering wheel because wifey-pooh can't handle Johnny doing the two-step on her feet. She does however love the new house and huge kitchen (and Johnny). She was on the fence a bit at first about his new change. You see, Johnny was going to 'make it' plenty of times before. Heck, she loved him either way but wasn't getting her hopes up this time. But, she started noticing little things: like the garbage was actually being taken out by someone other than her, there was no more hollering at the TV for bad passes or missed calls, but one of her favorites was that Johnny's pectoralis major was actually becoming major. Johnny's kids started noticing, too. He would bike ride and play catch. He even let the rascals bury him in a monstrous pile of leaves (and, jump on him!). Friends silently wondered how Johnny was 'catching' all the breaks. Every time they turned around Johnny was 'catching' yet another break.

Even though he had been advised against touching real estate, he did anyway. He didn't go blindly at it though, he got educated. He went to seminars, read books and listened to tapes. He asked successful investors how they did it. It wasn't easy because Johnny was working 5 12's down at the plant. Heck, he only had 13 more years to retirement. But, come Saturday, Johnny was working for his dream. At night during the week before succumbing to sleep and just after tucking the children in, was grow time. Reading, listening, building, growing, conversing and dreaming. You see, at some point Johnny decided excuses just wouldn't work anymore.

He knew that there was something more to life than what he had been getting. He also admitted to himself that the problem wasn't the rest of the world, it was him. That was painful to admit, but, became the catalyst for a new way of life for him and his family. He purposed to take action. And, then, he took action. Again and again. A conscious everyday choice.

Johnny and the 'tank man'.

The common bond that these two and countless others have had is taking action. Not just thinking, and dreaming and planning, but, acting out. At some point there can't be another day, more planning, or another excuse. A time must come when you are fed up enough to stand before a column of tanks. When the only life worth living is a life of action.

Acting out may not have been rewarded in grade school, but, the rewards are endless for those brave souls who will act out. For those who will take action and never turn back. Fortune favors the bold. Will you be bold today? Will you act out for your dreams today?

There is nothing to lose, but your very life to gain. It has made all the difference in my life and will in yours also.

Make it happen.

How are you acting out?

How are you spending your grow time?

How will you act out today?

What will you do today to grow?

Face the tanks!

Act out, my friend.

Grow, my friend.

Get out there and live it, and live it Loud.

Remember, you are the only you, you have.

Every year thousand of students appear for the entrance exams. From the last few decades the demand of management students rises at a very massive rate. Management students hold a very important position in any organization. They have played a vital role in handling various types of clients issues, resource issues, employees and employers issues, company's goodwill and reputation issues and lots more. Management students are on the middle of every task, they have act as joining point between employees - employers and employers - clients. Organizational structure and multinational trends makes all these responsibilities more complex that needs more planning and hard working in an efficient manner.

Corporate world always lacks efficient and capable management employees.

Though it is very hard to get complete track of complete market one can get analyzes after reading past section of changed market. Therefore, pre planning on the basis complete analyzing is very important, that makes your question solved. Previous downfall of share market is one of the biggest and true example of analyzes.

Come on, Grow Already

Denise Broadwater

I am sure there are doctors that can explain the growth process in our bodies or a horticulturist that understands how cells divide to produce larger plants, but when it comes to spiritual and emotional growth, that's harder. Research has been gathered over our development and developmental psychologists organize us into stages that seem to outline what we can expect.

Even with all the progress, we cannot force growth. We can provide an environment that provide everything needed to grow using the right nutrients, temperatures, and watering schedules in the case of plant material. Our parenting skills and research help us with providing the best environments for children to reach their full potential. Even so, two children can grow up in the same home under the same influences and reach such different conclusions.

Spiritually, people seek out religion to find something they can do to move in their growth toward God. Ps. 1 calls God's people"... trees planted by the rivers of water." A tree does not have control his own growth. He is in the hands of the gardener. Charles Spurgeon in The Treasury of David" referring to this passage says a planted tree was chosen by the gardener. He did not even have control over being picked. The gardener in his kindness placed him in an optimal place, where the river sediment was rich in nutrients and the water would be plentiful making conditions excellent for survival and growth. The tree can imagine himself an oak or prefer to be a delicate mimosa, but he pretty much is what he is. Through stretching or bending can he strive to grow taller, have brighter leaves in the fall, or kick out the squirrel that has found a hole to place nuts? His job is to be still and yield to the gardener. Sure, new opportunities will come him way (he could be on just the right riverbed to give him just what he needs to be the best tree he can be.) Some are saying if he thinks long and hard, his dream will come to him giving him control over his destiny.

So, spiritually, are you yielding? I think in our American culture regardless of how you differ from me in your faith, we are all seeking a formula. "Just give it to me in points, please, at least I can check those off!" I would encourage you to long to get to know God. If He is the gardener who controls your growth, then learning who He is and what He is telling you becomes the optimum growth move. Romans 6:13″...yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God." The constant fight in life is I can control my own destiny. We can try to influence our opportunities, reach for our goals, and in some cases see small changes in our lives, but even those are part of a larger plan.

Stand Out in a College Class

Alex Weiser

Most classes that freshmen take are very large - somewhere between 100 and 500 students. This is a big difference from senior year in high school where a 30 student class was the norm and everyone knew your name.

Will professors make an effort to learn my name?

Does it matter?

How can you stand out without being the loudmouth of the class?

All college classes come with a required reading list, which generally include a textbook that is something like the 6th edition. There is very little difference between the 5th and the 6th edition in terms of content, yet a huge difference in price.

College professors used to be college students, so they understand the concept of trying to save money in any way possible.

Send an e-mail to your professor before the semester begins inquiring about the edition of the required textbook. Start the e-mail by briefly introducing yourself, and remember to state which class you are taking in the up coming semester. Then say something like, "I noticed you requested we purchase the 6th edition of 'Principles of Microeconomics.' I found the 5th edition online for $50 cheaper, and I'm curious if it is okay for me to purchase the older edition." Make sure to end the e-mail with a sentence that shows you are looking forward to taking the class. Do not be a kiss-up, though.

Remember to follow through
On the first day of class, introduce yourself to your professor again. Wait until the end of class and then approach him to make a brief statement. It is as simple as, "Hello Professor, my name is _____, I e-mailed you about the edition of the textbook. I just wanted to say hello so you could put a face with the name." Your professor will really appreciate this extra effort - not many people have the guts to do this.

What does this simple e-mail and follow-up introduction accomplish?

(1) When your professor is looking over the grade-book at the end of the semester, and you are in between a B+ and an A-, the grade will likely be bumped up

(2) It is the first day of class, and the professor knows your name and face. You have incentive to show up to class every day - you have put some positive pressure on yourself. Even in a very large class, she could notice that you did not attend lecture.

(3) You now have a personal relationship with your professor, and have successfully taken 100% of the awkward out of any future questions you may have about the class.

Preschool Education - Preparing Your Child For the Race

Winston Jenkins

Preschool in Aurora Colorado provides basic education before the commencement of mandatory education for the child. Developmental education is the basic foundation of preschool education. This is done by allowing the children to express themselves and explore the environment freely. An ideal age for preschool is between 0 - 5. The child's brain is developing and making connections at this age and anything learnt at this stage will be imprinted in the memory of the child for the rest of his/her life. It is therefore, always advisable to choose a pre-school wisely as children are extremely impressionable at this age.

Pre-schooling should be based in the best interests of the child, the central importance of relationships, the need to socialize with other children and understanding the ways in which individual children learn. Every child has a unique pattern for understanding and learning things. Pre-school simplifies this pattern which also makes it easier for the parents to help the child in learning certain things in the future.

The basic aim of a pre-school should be to focus on the safety and security of the child. This can be achieved by identifying the way in which the staff values the individual child. Pre-school should encourage physical, social, emotional and creative development of the child by giving them equal opportunities and extending the child's ability to communicate in a variety of ways like painting and creative art. Children are not aware of their surrounding at such an early age hence they learn well in an environment where they feel secure and safe. By planning, questioning and reflecting, these children learn to deepen the awareness in which they can feel and understand themselves.

Importance of Choosing the Right Pre-School for your Child

The most important thing in a child's life at this age, besides affection, is toys. A child experiments, builds things of his imagination and investigates. It is with toys that children gain their imaginative power, one of the most important tools that human's possess.
