Catch Them Before They Catch You


When you stay in a hotel, how do you know there is no room 

pinhole camera?

When you travel or take a business trip, and stay in a hotel 

or a guest house or room you could unknowingly be 


You can use this method to check your room :

When you enter into the room, turn off the lights, and close 

the curtains, open your phone camera, do not turn the flash 

light on.

Turn around the room with your cell phone. 

When a red dot is found, that means that a hidden web 

camera is installed.

If no red dots, the room is ok.

Please forward this message to your friends who travel a lot 

or take business trips.

Waiting To Kick Out 2015

Hello People

For those in #Australia and #New #Zealand, it is already January 1st 2016

But for us in Nigeria and some parts of the world, we are still waiting to kick out 2015 in order for 2016 to take its appropriate place

Check out this picture:

End Of Year 2015

School of Life piece of advise:

" Don't expect life to be fair "

Life is never fair; some persons have more than their fair share of good things and others have nothing; but out of the ashes have also arisen flames burning bright

Life Secret and Tip

You know, the kind of personality that is surrounded by people constantly and is the life of the party. Start visualizing yourself as THAT person. Maybe take a short course on dynamic speaking and learn some jokes. Take the time to learn some party tricks and sleight of hand. Most importantly, believe that you already are charismatic even if you fail at being the center point of the next party. Lie to yourself constantly and tell yourself that you are more warm and gregarious than Ronald Regan. Belief is the first step! Reality will come soon after."

Motivational Quote on Success
"Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in."

Key Point of Life
In the word listen is the word silent

The Benjamin Franklin Effect.

The Ben Franklin effect is a psychological finding:

A person who has done someone a favor is more likely to do that person another favor than they would be if they had received a favor from that person.

Similarly, one who harms another is more willing to harm them again than the victim is to retaliate.

This is an unbelievable finding. In social situations, you can hack this by making someone do something small for you, then asking for your true favor.

It’s such a small favor that they will say yes, and due to cognitive dissonance their brain will rationalize that they must like you enough to do you a favor in the first place.

This is also called the foot-in-the-door effect.

These Words Reveal Your Age - Check Them Out

8 Words That Totally Reveal You Are Not a Millennial

It may be awesome to you, but to everyone listening, it's a sign of being out of touch.

Are there words you use that reveal your age? I have noticed a few lately that signal to everyone within hearing distance that you are definitely not a Millennial. Extract them from your emails and conversations or you will end up sounding a bit dated, out of touch, and maybe even not that relevant anymore.

1. Totally

I hear older folks saying "totally" way more than the younger set. (Oh, shoot--"the younger set" is another outdated phrase.) It's always a one-word response of agreement. If you emphasize the "to" part and drag out the pronunciation, be careful. You might sound like the Fonz.

2. Bummer

You might not know this, but the word bummer is an offshoot of a German word (bummler) that means to be a loafer and "bum" off of others. It also means you grew up watching lame sitcoms on ABC and can't seem to find better ways of expressing disappointment.

3. Sweet

People of all ages say "sweet," but only Gen-Xers seem to have an inextricable attachment to the word. Just about everything is "sweet" to them, from the food in the buffet line at work to the new sales lead that will finally bear that big bonus check.

4. Downer

I'm guessing few of the people who use the word downer know that it comes straight from the urban dictionary (it was originally used to describe a drug). Sadly, it is also almost completely stricken from the vocabulary of anyone under 34. They barely know what it means.

5. Cool

Everyone says "cool" in every generation, but it's falling out of favor with Millennials. It's a dad word. A gadget might be cool, or the vacation plans might be cool. But using the one word as a exclamatory term to voice approval is as dated as any of the words on this list.

6. Right

If you say "right" when someone talks, it makes you sound dated. The Millennials I've been working with lately don't do that. For starters, they seem to use body language instead--if they are paying attention and not using a phone, they are basically saying "right" to you.

7. Awesome

Sorry to those who still say everything is "awesome," but the word has worn out its welcome. What I've heard working in an office full of Millennials is that people now say "awesome" only when they want to add a hint of sarcasm. Things are actually not that awesome.

8. Bonus

If you shout "bonus" at work, you tip a hat to everyone. Millennials don't say "bonus" as a way of expressing excitement. In fact, they might look at you funny and wonder if there is some gift card reward or perk involved.

Beware Of This Demon As You Head Into 2016

This Is the Biggest Obstacle to Your Success in 2016. Defeat It

Take it from the fight club--sometimes your worst enemy is staring right back at you.

Let me first say I'm from Philadelphia so any film starring my old hometown is going to get a star in my book.

And any film bringing back Rocky Balboa is going to get me to go to the movie theater. Which it did. For Creed.

The movie didn't disappoint. Stallone didn't disappoint. And watching the film, as hokey as it can sometimes be with its good vs. bad narrative, is about as good a motivational tool as any TED Talk/Tony Robbins speech combined.

Here's what I'm talking about. There's one scene where Rocky brings Adonis, Creed's illegitimate son, to a mirror at the gym. He says quietly: "See the guy right there? That's your toughest opponent. I believe that in boxing, and I believe that in life."

Rocky leaves the fighter to mirror box himself. If he can defeat his toughest opponent, he can beat pretty much everybody else.
Now ask yourself:
How many mornings do you wake up doubting yourself?
How many times do you tell yourself no before someone else does?
How many times do you let others form an opinion about your abilities rather than believing in yourself?

People are amazingly complex creatures and why some people fail while others succeed is something I'm constantly exploring through writing, researching, and interviewing. There isn't one path to riches and success but there are a few constants. And one of them is an unfailing belief in yourself and a determination to quiet the demons inside.

Your priority heading into 2016 is to be aware of those demons and to hold them back. The only person who can defeat you is you. You won't succeed every time with a knockout, but as in boxing, it's the record that counts. Make that record count in 2016.

As 2016 Unfolds - These Words/Phrases Are A No No!!!!

8 Phrases You Really Need to Stop Saying in 2016

Want to upgrade your communication skills for the New Year? Then stop using these sloppy, dull, or simply played-out words and phrases.

Right around now, many people aim to improve their health or their career in the coming year, but if you're looking for a more unusual (and possibly more achievable) New Year's resolution, how about this: Tune up your speaking and writing in 2016.

We're all guilty of overusing some phrases, indulging in jargon, or simply getting sloppy about how we communicate sometimes.

Why not use the end of the year as motivation to clean up your vocabulary?

After all, in the age of the text message-length missive, the ability to write well is more valuable (and perhaps rarer) than ever.

Over on the blog The Freelancer, Nicholas Pell has some great suggestions for played-out or straight-up annoying words and phrases that you should jettison in 2016.

Here are a few of the 15 he mentions:

1. "It's [the current year]."

"Pointing to a calendar doesn't actually explain anything," Pell sensibly points out. "Some readers might nod and pat themselves on the back in agreement, but anyone not on board will scratch their head in confusion or assume you are a lazy writer. Explain the merits of a position or don't bring it up at all."

2. "Amazing."

What could possibly be the problem with 'amazing'? "Amazing isn't a bad word, but it's become the national crutch for anything that's really very super awesome or really, really good ... Sadly, it's worn out its welcome, and you should use any other word you can find," says the post.

3. "Literally."

Pell's comment on this is brief but definitive: "Literally never." As a side note, he's not the only one who lists "literally" among the top language pet peeves.

4. "Little did I know."

Pell's complaint with this phrase is that it is both pompous and overused. "Approximately 90 percent or so of the 'think pieces' (a phrase I am only not banishing so that I may use it as a source of derision) running in 2015 hinged upon some 'little did I know' moment that wraps everything up into a neat little lesson. It's almost the equivalent of 'I think,' followed by the writer's opinion," he writes.

5. "Leverage."

Business people are often taken to task for using jargon when plain English will do. "Leverage" is one common offender: "Of all the worn-out business jargon floating around, this has to be the worst. When leverage gets used as a verb, I immediately know I'm reading something not written for me. People writing B2B content might still find use for this worn old war horse; everyone else should drop it in favor of a clearer word."

6. "For all intents and purposes."

"Five words that introduce a statement that would probably stand on its own just fine," claims Pell.

7. "Rock star," "guru," "ninja," and "Jedi."

This one is bound to be controversial, but Pell has no time for the current trend for whimsical job titles. "There's nothing about your command of Python, PhotoShop, PowerPoint, search engine optimization, content marketing, or copywriting that makes you even remotely like any of these. You do your thing, and leave the rock stars, gurus, ninjas, and Jedis of the world to do theirs," he complains. Do you agree?

8. "Next level."

What does this phrase even mean? asks Pell. "So something is next level? Why? How? Who says so? Tell me something about your product, what it does, why I want it, and how it's going to make my life better."

Pell's list might be entertaining, but he's hardly the only resource out there if you're looking for ideas on how to improve your use of the English language next year.

A Harvard linguist recently came out with a monster list of commonly misused words, my colleague Minda Zetlin has helpfully rounded up 37 words that will make you more persuasive, and entrepreneur Ryan Robinson has compiled a list of 11 words successful people never use.

What word or phrase do you hope everyone stops using in 2016?

The Last Day


Greetings of the new day which also is the last day of the month of December and of the year 2015.

If you are reading this, it means only thing and that is, that it has pleased God to bring you into this last day of the month and of the year and that you should give Him all the glory. 

Never let any man or any other thing made by man on earth or in the heavenlies, on the surface of the earth or in the depths beneath, on the surface of the ocean or below the ocean bed, never allow any other to take the Glory that belongs to God because God is such a jealous God that He would rebuke and reproach you without looking backwards.

As we lay in wait for the birth of the new year, let us remind ourselves that "until it is over, it is never over" until it is 12 midnight of 31st December 2015, then the year is still in force and must be obeyed.

Celebrate, eat, drink, dance, play the game of thrones, play the horsey game, but remember to do all in moderation; too much sweet pains the anus.

Have a swell day today

1 Day To End Of Year

School of Life piece of advise:
" Remember that 80 per cent of the success in any job is based on your ability to deal with people."
If you are going to make any headway anywhere that work is to be done, then you simply have to learn how to relate with other persons. That is key to success.

Life Secret and Tip
 " Learn to use and trust your subconscious/intuition.
When you spend time in silence everyday, listen not for words but for a feeling that tells you to do something. Do not mistake your own reasoning and thoughts for those of your subconscious. If you can track where the thought came from, (this thought led to that thought which led to this thought, etc.) then it was not from your subconscious. Learning to accurately discern between the two will allow you to tap into knowledge that you don’t consciously have."

Motivational Quote on Success
"Moderation is the feebleness and sloth of the soul, whereas ambition is the warmth and activity of it". – Francois de la Rochefoucauld

Key Point of Life
Spend some time alone to think what you can give to this world.

Psychological Life Hack
Stand up straight, have warm hands and always keep eye contact.

• Keep a straight posture and walk like a born leader. This sub-communicates confidence and others will respect you automatically.

• Keep your hands out of your pockets. If you don’t know what to do with them, it is better to fold your arms rather than keep them inside your pockets.

• Keep your hands warm. If you have a warm hand when you shake somebody’s hand, you immediately become a more desirable person to get along with. Secret Tip – wash your hands with warm water often to

keep them warm or take cold showers.

• You have heard this a thousand times. Here is the 1001st. – never lose eye contact! Losing eye contact is like losing your confidence. One cool trick when first meeting someone is to focus on their eye color and smile at the same time. The eyes are the gateway to the soul, and taking the extra second to gaze shows you are confident and present.

(Be sure to move your eyes away periodically, a constant stare will creep people out.)

" Compliment the meal when you're a guest in someone's home."
Expression of gratitude is one habit that takes a man out of poverty

Life Secret and Tip
 " Keep a journal/diary.

It sounds like a very monotonous habit at first, but when you get into it, that little book will become a great way to organize your thoughts and track your growth over the years. Most of us already stay awake in bed at night pondering the events of the day anyways so why not document those thoughts in an organized fashion? That will allow you to look back and observe how your way of thinking has changed over time."

Motivational Quote on Success
" Intelligence without ambition is like a bird without wings" – Salvador Dali

Key Point of Life
When you realize you've made a mistake, take

immediate steps to correct it.

Psychological Life Hack
Want to build rapport and gain respect? Match body language.

This is quite a common topic among body language experts and works well if you want to gain respect from a person that has high value.


You are in a social situation where a person has higher value among others within the group.

He is the center of attention and he totally enjoys it. How do you match his value? By befriending him!

If you want his respect and attention the best thing to do when you approach him is to match his body language and speaking patterns.

 If he has open body language and he talks with excitement and joy, don’t go there with crossed arms and with an attitude of negating his words.

Approach him with the same amount of excitement and show openness and interest.
