“The superior man makes the difficulty to be overcome his first interest; success comes only later.”

In general, 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes.

From a business point of view, finding the 80/20 ratio plays a critical role in order to maximize performance. The 80/20 principle however, does not only apply to businesses. If we look deeper, we realize it in other aspects of life as well. In general, 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. This means that if you have 10 activities in your list, 2 of them are equal to, or even more important than the other 8.

same time, still 1 or 2 of them will be more profitable for you than others. Everyday some of our time is spent procrastinating and working inefficiently doing activities that provide us very little benefit. We watch old TV shows over and over again. We spend hours surfing entertaining websites and social networks without thinking about what we will gain at the end of the day.

Hereby, Pareto found out that all of the economical activities follow the same rule. For example, 80% of profit come from 20% of customers. 80% of complaints come from 20% clients. Similarly, 80% of sales are made by 20% of sales staff.

The 80/20 Rule is one of the most useful principles in Time and Life Management. It is named after its originator, Vilfredo Pareto, who was an Italian economist. He first suggested this principle in 1895 when he observed that most of the income in Italy (about 80%), was received by only 20% of Italians.

• before starting any activity or making any decision determine if it belongs to the 20% high priority or the 80% less important group. • Resist the temptation of doing easier and less important jobs first. • Remember that the hardest step is always the first one, starting. When you get used to struggling with difficult issues first, you will be able to overcome laziness. • The truth is that in most cases doing hard and easy activities are equally time and energy consuming. Even though, the difference is in how you look at yourself and your performance. Always think of the result. The more you step forward, the more proud you will be. Time management is actually life management. Make a serious decision today to spend more time on the more profitable activities. Remember: 80% of the activities you can do will not bring you any success. However, 20% of them will lead you to prosperity. Find them, stick to them, and be proud of yourself.

“To overcome difficulties is to experience the full delight of existence.”

We all know someone who tends to be always very lucky. These people are only lucky because they happen to forget bad memories easily and give up a lot less often. And because of this, success just flies their way! This is only because they are working harder than others, therefore being more successful. You might think they are better at predicting the future than you are. But we’re very glad to say you are wrong! Prediction does nothing to lead to success. But the 5 easy tips do!

1: Successful people have nothing to do with luck! Why? Because you can’t control luck, but you can control the actions and steps you take in life. Therefore remember, always think and plan ahead before you do anything.

2: We all have some rough times! There are a few ways you can gain success, and the most important one is to learn how to solve the problems that block your way. You just need to find the best solution. Remember, even most successful people have had rough times. It’s not only you!

3: Most people give up because of the fear of being a failure! Many of us don’t know that when we

give up, we are a failure. It’s as easy as that. Think about it; do you have a higher chance of meeting success when you give up easily or when you work harder to get rid of the feeling of fear and continuing? Once you start thinking this way, you will be more enthusiastic about your work and will have a higher chance of reaching success.

4:Best chances come to you from others.

others’ dissatisfaction. It is not copmplicated at all. you only need to live more vigilant.

5: Luck comes to a person’s way that is well-prepared. Once you take a step in doing something, you are automatically increasing your chance of being successful. So remember, success won’t come your way, you need to reach out and catch it yourself.

Most of the time best ideas come to successful people’s mind from

Thinking about purchasing a home of your own? Keep these critical considerations in mind: How long you plan to live in the home.

If you purchase a home and get a job transfer or decide to move after only a short time, you may end up paying money in order to sell it. The value of your home may not have appreciated enough to cover the costs that you paid to buy the home and the costs that it would take you to sell your home. The length of time that it will take to cover those costs depends on various economic factors in the area of the home. Most parts of the country have an average of 5% appreciation per year. In this case, you should plan to stay in your home at least 3-4 years to cover buying and selling costs. If the area you buy your home in experiences an economic upturn, the length of the time to cover these costs could be shortened, and the opposite is also true.

How long the home will meet your needs.

What features do you require in a home to satisfy your lifestyle now? Five years from now? Depending on how long you plan to stay in your home, you’ll need to ensure that the home has the amenities that you’ll need. For example, a two-bedroom dwelling may be perfect for a young couple with no children. However, if they start a family, they could quickly outgrow the space. Therefore, they should consider a home with room to grow. Could the basement be turned into a den and extra bedrooms? Could the attic be turned into a master

Elate Magazine . Issue 1

suite? Having an idea of what you’ll need will help you find a home that will satisfy you for years to come.

Your financial health - your credit and home affordability.

Is now the right time financially for you to buy a home? Would you rate your financial picture as healthy? Is your credit good? While you can always find a lender to lend you money, solid lenders are more sceptical if your credit history is not good. Generally, a couple of blemishes on a credit report will make you a good credit risk and could qualify you for the lowest interest rates. If you have more than a couple of blemishes on your report, lenders like Quicken Loans may still provide you with a loan, but you may just have to pay a higher interest rate and fees. Some say that you should refrain from borrowing as much as you qualify for because it is wiser not to stretch your financial boundaries. The other school of thought says you should stretch to buy as much home as you can afford, because with regular pay raises and increased earning potential, the big payment today will seem like less of a payment tomorrow. This is a decision only you can make. Are you in a position where you expect to make more money soon? Would you rather be conservative and fairly certain that you can make your payment without stretching financially? Make sure that whatever you do, it’s within your comfort zone.

Where the money for the transaction will come from.

Typically homebuyers will need some money for a down payment and closing costs. However, with today’s broad range of loan options, having a lot of money saved for a down payment is not always necessary - if you can prove that you are a good financial risk to a lender. If your credit isn’t stellar but you have managed to save 10-20% for a down payment, you will still appear to be a very good financial risk to a lender.

The ongoing costs of home ownership. Maintenance, improvements, taxes and insurance are all costs that are added to a monthly house payment. If you buy a condominium, townhouse or in certain communities, a monthly homeowner’s association fee might be required. If these additional costs are a concern, you can make choices to lower or avoid these fees. Be sure to make your realtor and your lender aware of your desire to limit these costs. If you are still unsure if you should buy a home after making these considerations, you may want to consult with an accountant or financial planner to help you assess how a home purchase fits into your overall financial goals.

Simple Steps To A Healthier Living 24.1% of Canadian adults over the age of 30 are suffering from obesity, according to data released from StatsCan on March 02, 2011.

This has caused a higher rate of diabetes and heart disease. In order to stay away from obesity, as you may already know, you need to follow a healthy eating plan and to exercise regularly. However it is not always easy to stay on track. In order to simplify following these daily plans, it is important to set yourself realistic goals. Some of these goals could include: 1. Trying new foods and recipes. Once you have picked out an exciting meal for yourself, you won’t have to overeat to feel satisfied.

think about portion size, because that way, your plan will lead to failure. It’s not all about calories, fat grams, or carbohydrates. You can feel satisfied all day long if you include a mid-morning, mid-afternoon, and some dessert.

3. Following an exercise plan that you can carry on. You should not feel forced to exercise. Therefore, your exercise plan should be enjoyable. Whether it means taking a walk with your friends, joining a gym, or taking a bike ride around in your neighbourhood, you should be active for at least 20 minutes a day. 4. Getting help from others. Ask your friends or family for support. This might include them joining you on your diet or at least encouraging you to take it a little bit further, by trying new things and putting a bit more effort into your daily plans.

World’s Advantures The Golden Pavilion

The golden Pavilion is a large structure built right next to a pond in the city of Kyoto in the country of Japan. This building was built by ashikaga Yoshimitsu who died in the year of 1408. This beautiful building , also known as Rokuon-ji ,Deer Garden Temple, is a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan. The garden complex is an excellent example of Muromachi period garden design which is designated as a National Special Historic Site and a National Special Landscape.

Elate Magazine . Issue 1

The “Golden Palace” picture art on Apple computers desktop is also a feature of this amazing place. The Golden Pavilion got burned down several times. Two times in the war of Onin, (which was a civil war that destroyed most of Kyoto), and once by a fanatic monk in the year 1950. But the structure was rebuilt in 1955.

What makes The Golden Pavilion different from other buildings is that the top two floors are made of gold! Also, each floor has a different style of structure and is built differently. This is a beautiful place to visit while you’re at Japan. Thus, next time you visit Japan, make sure you go and see ‘The Golden Pavilion.’ Source: www.japan-guide.com

“The ideal man bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, making the best of circumstances.” Aristotle

The Story Of A Butterflty One day, a small opening appeared in a cocoon; a man sat and watched for the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then, it seems to stop making any progress.It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could and it could not go any further. So the man decided to help the butterfly: he took a pair of scissors and opened the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily.But it had a withered body, it was tiny and shriveled wings. The man continued to watch because he expected that, at any moment, the wings would open, enlarge and expand, to be able to support the butterfly’s body, and become firm.

Elate Magazine . Issue 1

Neither happened! In fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around with a withered body and shriveled wings. It never was able to fly. What the man, in his kindness and his goodwill did not understand was that the restricting cocoon and the struggle required for the butterfly to get through the tiny opening, were God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings; so that it would be ready for flight once it achieved its freedom from the cocoon.

Sometimes, struggles are exactly what we need in our life.If God allowed us to go through our life without any obstacles, we wouldnot be as strong as we could have been. Never been able to fly.
