The Life Law: You Can’t Progress If You Wish Someone’s Downfall

Bitter love affairs

There are storms in every relationship but prepared to forgive and accept your mistake to build a strong foundation

Like the five fingers which aren’t equal so is life, don’t expect it to be smooth; without problems all your life. Frankly speaking, life is very tough and those that understand the aspects of it are those that normally survive in this difficult world.

Life sometimes becomes more difficult if those that you trust and love turn against you. The more disturbing part is when trying hard to succeed in life but others pray for your failure and often set invincible traps for you to fall into it.

How do you handle this situation if you find yourself trapped in families or friends of deceitful enemies? Your own brother or brothers are against you or your own sisters wouldn’t like to see you over issues that aren’t important.

Jealousy drives people to commit horrible crimes they don’t realize how serious it is until finding themselves at the place they don’t belong to. If you don’t love your partner any longer and he/she leaves don’t be jealous if he/she finds happiness somewhere.

Before you pray for his/her failure, remember that  you don’t love her anymore the reason she left, so don’t be jealous and plan her downfall. Your jealousy will draw you behind and place you in psychological turmoil.

We are all human beings and no one is perfect. Always try to remember the good things family, friends, colleagues and people you don’t know did for you. It is better than dwelling on the mistakes they did. That will make you unhappy and unhealthy.

Hate, jealousy, hypocrisy and anger destroy your health and promote your health towards psychological torture. Always be ready to apologize if you are wrong and put away pride because it will never make you humble but arrogant.

The Mistakes Many Authors, Business Companies, And Online Book Sellers Do On Twitter

Bad marketing strategies on Twitter

Twitter is for success but bad marketing strategies can affect your business on Twitter

Twitter, one of the giants social media offers a variety of services to entrepreneurs, businessmen, including authors and online book publishers and sellers.

Once interested in someone’s product, books or like the activities of a particular organization that may attract the person to follow you.

It seems to some people that gaining thousands of Twitter followers mean success, dignity, respect and the flourishing of business which may give them probably the recognition they are looking for.

Unfortunately, some authors and booksellers follow other authors just to increase the number of their followers then later unfollow them.

These kinds of tricks are bad marketing strategies which can affect you as an author or your business, depending how long you are using such unproductive cheating game as a marketing strategy.

An author I was interested in and therefore featured his books on my blog did the same and I cancelled the idea of buying his book. I used that money to buy another book of an author we are not following each other on Twitter.

Many times people use the word ‘Common sense,’ I think ‘sense’ is not common. One needs to be very sincere, intelligent, and investigative to know that he is causing his own downfall.

How Corruption Has Overshadowed The Book Publishing Industry Almost Instantly

Some publishers don't edit your book after paying for editing package

The book publishing industry is associated with scams, corruption, fraud, hate and fake reviews

Writing is very tough within the journalism spheres, everyone knows that but that’s not the reason many are giving up writing and blogging today.

As a matter of fact, like the political arena, the book publishing industry is very corrupt and plagued by greed, hatred, fake and dishonest reviews, putting some writers in front and others behind.

Only few writers are willing to help upcoming or new writers. The majority act greedily like a big fish, always trying to eat down the small ones because they feel superior and underestimate the works of other writers.

CORRUPTION AND FRAUD

There are both visible and invincible frauds within the book publishing industry, which many major book sellers have observed, the reason Amazon recently decided to delete many reviews they considered fake from their websites.

Everyone wants to sell but some writers use ‘dirty methods’ and even criminal activities to push their books to the top. Firstly, they think they have the power to do so and secondly, they have the money to do it. Thus; those who don’t want to lead such dirty life become the ‘stupid’ ones with their good written books.

On the websites of publishing houses,  you’ll see fantastic packages, including editing and book promotion. Yet, many of them publish authors’ books without editing. Readers usually detect the mistakes and inform the writer about it. This a crime which should have sent the publisher behind bars but they enjoy impunity.

After taking their money they don’t care anymore about the writer. This nature of shoddy work has affected many writers. The reason some writers are now depending on self-publication.  I understand the reason many are sad or depressed over what they are going through as writers but that shouldn’t happen.

Very soon, I will share my story of how I avoided frustration and depression, shifted my writing profession to a hobby and went into the cleaning industry making between 24,000 and 25,000 Euros annually. Through that I was able to buy a beautiful three-bedroom house .With my wife and children we are very happy.

Be More Cautious As Advanced Online Frauds Sometimes Get The People They Target

Online fraud

Online fraud is skyrocketing avoid being a victim

Internet fraud is rapidly increasing like a bush fire in the dry season without ceasing because the perpetrators behind often get those they target.

Greed Is Your Worst Enemy Than A Good Friend

What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?

Greed is the cause of crime, violence, and killings in our society today

It’s now very common to read in the newspapers that ‘Man murders his wife for life insurance,’ or a woman kills her husband for the same purpose; life insurance. It’s unbelievable that years after marriage because of greed and the love of money, the mind of people changes to commit such a heinous crime.

Human beings by nature have the potential for greedy tendencies, but the strong desire of some people to possess at all cost wouldn’t mind killing or shedding blood to achieve  whatever they are looking for. That’s the dangerous part of greed.

In a documentary film, I watched recently, a drug dealer who was successful in his first and second attempts to transport narcotics to Asia and earned thousands of dollars. Despite becoming a millionaire overnight, greed propelled him to make a third attempt and he was arrested and jailed. Had I known is always at last.

Greed, the tendency to selfish craving, hoarding and grasping is responsible for the violence, and crime tearing our society apart today. Greed plays a major role in all fields including politics, sports, and in administrations. In both developing and developed countries, greed leads to corruption and the amassed in wealth.

It’s shocking to see the present condition in many African countries while some African leaders take state money and keep them in foreign accounts. Greed is not a problem in Africa alone but everywhere because it’s a man’s problem, the reasons advanced countries are equally corrupt like Africa.

Money taken from Africa is classified as corruption and that of Europe and America is classified as ‘misappropriate of funds’ because they think corruption is a word that suits Africa but the act is the same. Some people believe that to be successful in life the need to be greedy is necessary, but living on greed is like gradually digging your own grave.

As a matter of fact, greed makes people unhappy, stupid, corrupt and restless because that lack of satisfaction which urges you to crave for more takes control of you both physically and psychologically. If the heart wants it and there isn’t any means, what follows next is usually a crime. The reason desperate people do desperate things.

Some people ask if we can get rid of greed and if possible how can we do it? As a matter of fact, greed is a like common sickness which can be controlled but can never ever be eliminated because it’s impossible to get rid of it completely.

Even in the public transports, some people take two seats, one for him/her and other for the briefcase or handbag while others are standing. What do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? These are some of the Biblical quotations we need to use as a guide to refrain from greed.

Such Mail Isn’t From LinkedIn: Hackers Want To Steal Your Personal Information

Office 2LinkedIn, one of the world’s largest professional networks

No matter how good ‘yester-years’ were in terms of communication, business, employment, political activities, and marketing, it can’t be compared to today’s influence and effectiveness of the social media.

Yet the social media harbors all sorts of crimes and frauds, including identity and credit cards theft and ‘hacking,’ often tricking people into doing something dangerous which may either harm your computer or the revealing of personal information, for example, passwords, credit cards, and personal information.

Despite the fight against internet crime, the culprits involved are not slowing down. They always come out with new ideas just to steal or get your personal information to steal. Online, they use fake letter heads of many social media, including Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook etc, with the intention to defraud.

The World Under The Influence Of Babylon The Great?

BabylonThe impact of her Beauty and influence, have made Babylon the Great, the mother of the prostitutes, to steal the heart of both men and women to do disgusting things on the earth and the worshipping of  false gods.

THE book of Revelation contains expressions that are not to be understood literally. (Revelation 1:1) For example, it mentions a woman with the name “Babylon the Great” written on her forehead. This woman is said to be sitting on “crowds and nations.” (Revelation 17:1, 5, 15) Since no literal woman could do this, Babylon the Great must be symbolic. So, what does this symbolic prostitute represent?

At Revelation 17:18, the same figurative woman is described as “the great city that has a kingdom over the kings of the earth.” The term “city” indicates an organized group of people. Since this “great city” has control over “the kings of the earth,” the woman named Babylon the Great must be an influential organization that is international in scope.  It can rightly be called a world empire. What kind of empire? A religious one. Notice how some related passages in the book of Revelation lead us to this conclusion.

An empire can be political, commercial, or religious. The woman named Babylon the Great is not a political empire because God’s Word states that “the kings of the earth,” or the political elements of this world, “committed sexual immorality” with her. She has practiced such immorality by forming alliances with the rulers of this earth and has done whatever is necessary in order to gain power and influence over them. That is why she is called “the great prostitute.”—Revelation 17:1, 2; James 4:4.

Babylon the Great cannot be a commercial empire because “the merchants of the earth,” representing the commercial elements, will be mourning her at the time of her destruction. In fact, both kings and merchants are described as looking at Babylon the Great from “a distance.” (Revelation 18:3, 9, 10, 15-17) Therefore, it is reasonable to conclude that Babylon the Great is, not a political or a commercial empire, but a religious one.

The religious identity of Babylon the Great is further confirmed by the statement that she misleads all the nations by means of her “spiritualistic practices.” (Revelation 18:23) Since all forms of spiritism are religious and demon-inspired, it is not surprising that the Bible calls Babylon the Great “a dwelling place of demons.” (Revelation 18:2; Deuteronomy 18:10-12)

This empire is also described as being actively opposed to true religion, persecuting “prophets” and “holy ones.” (Revelation 18:24) In fact, Babylon the Great has such deep hatred for true religion that she violently persecutes and even murders “the witnesses of Jesus.” (Revelation 17:6) Hence, this woman named Babylon the Great clearly represents the world empire of false religion, which includes all religions that stand in opposition to Jehovah God.

How would the life of Babylon the Great come to end?

He said to me: “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is sitting, mean peoples and crowds and nations and tongues.” And the ten horns that you saw and the wild beast, these will hate the prostitute and will make her devastated and naked, and they will eat up her flesh and completely burn her with the fire. Rev 15:15-16.

This is a clear message that all false religions will perish: “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.” 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 .
