30 Practical Ways to Improve Yourself

You Need to invite some one.

Today is our blog’s sixth birthday.  Over the past six years we have touched on hundreds of tips, tricks and lessons that have the potential to improve your life.  So to celebrate this milestone, we’re going to take a stroll down memory lane and review some of the best tips from our previous articles.  Together, we believe the 30 tips below are the cornerstone of practical self improvement advice.  Each tip links back to its original corresponding article, so you can read more at your leisure.  Enjoy…

  1. Maintain a positive attitude. – Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story.  The mind must believe it can do something before it is capable of actually doing it.  So be aware of your mental self-talk.  We all talk silently to ourselves in our heads, but we aren’t always conscious of what we’re saying or how it’s affecting us.  Start listening to your thoughts.  If you hear negative thoughts, stop for a second and replace them with positive thoughts.  As the Dalai Lama once said, “The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful.”  For some practical positive thinking guidance, I recommend reading The Power of Positive Thinking.
  2. Be kind to yourself. – If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow that person to be your friend?  The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others.  You must love who you are or no one else will.
  3. Embrace problems as a natural part of growing. – Part of living and growing up is experiencing unexpected troubles in life.  People lose jobs, get sick, and sometimes die in car accidents.  When you are younger, and things are going pretty well, this harsh reality can be hard to visualize.  The smartest, and oftentimes hardest, thing we can do in these kinds of situations is to be tempered in our reactions.  To want to scream obscenities, but to be wiser and more disciplined than that.  To remember that emotional rage only makes matters worse.  And to remember that tragedies are rarely as bad as they seem, and even when they are, they give us an opportunity to grow stronger.

Will Money Men allow Georgette to stay a lone?

The answer is Georgette. The 29-year history of the country’s most successful Cameroonian ace gólvágója: 101 times since 1996, has emblazoned career home land, and a total of 52 goals scored. Odd unbroken career spans up – has been leading the football club is concerned, since the African country with the national team has not yet been able to achieve outstanding success in the World Championships. Eto’o this is probably the most famous African footballers have played for Real Madrid (because that perhaps few people know, but the Leganes after the first round confirmed when you came over to Europe), in Mallorca, Espanyol and Barcelona, and the Italian Inter, three Spanish and a single Italian champion, twice won the Royal Spanish Cup and once in the Italian Cup, Champions League, winning three times and still only 29 years old.

But in addition to talent, and we wonder who is behind the success? The answer is still – as in most cases – a woman, namely, Georgette. The Ivorian-born woman has a child he knew by Samuel, with whom he soon warmed up. A couple of friends that really came together in Europe, but Georgette has not followed the great love of traveling everywhere, he is more of France, specifically Paris has opted, presumably in the fashion and luxury, the mother of no.

A couple of the 2007th On July 6, also married in Paris, close family and friends. Eto’o is not called by his fellow players in the ceremony, saying the private life, private life. The young husband and her lover after they went past a little strange life, that is, the football star went back to “work”, while his wife remained in the French capital. Eto’o The couple has three children were born, but it did not change anything: Georgette is still tiny and live in Paris, and if you can, visit the family’s father in Milan. Who knows, maybe the separation of the key to success? We do not know. In any case, Georgette in private life has reached what many coaches on the sidelines could not: tamed the lion szelídíthetetlennek believed.

Uche on hattrick in Espanyol rout

Espanyol routed Rayo Vallecano 5-1 thanks to Kalu Uche’s hat-trick for its first win in six games in the Spanish league on Sunday.

The Nigerian striker headed in the fourth-minute opener at Cornella-El Prat stadium as Espanyol sought to rebound from last week’s 5-0 defeat at Real Madrid.

Coutinho then scored his first goals since arriving at Espanyol on loan from Inter Milan. The 19-year-old Brazilian tapped in a cross from Sergio Garcia in the 10th and slalomed through two defenders to add another in the 23rd.

Uche netted with a superb chip shot from the edge of the area to make it 4-0 before halftime.

Former Espanyol striker Raul Tamudo pulled one back for Rayo in the 54th, but Uche capped his treble off a pass from Garcia in the 68th.

Also, Atletico Madrid beat Granada 2-0 with goals by Miranda and Radamel Falcao to break a five-week winless streak.
Barcelona visits out-of-form Racing Santander later, while Valencia hosts Mallorca and Athletic Bilbao is at Osasuna.

On Saturday, runaway leader Real Madrid beat Real Betis 3-2 for a club record 10th straight away win. Also, it was: Real Sociedad 3, Zaragoza 0; Malaga 1, Levante 0; and Sporting Gijon 1, Sevilla 0.

On the blast of the final whistle Richard Gahonzire, an Executive member of Rwanda Football Federation, approached this reporter and said “why did Osaze snub Stephen Keshi?

When it was clear that Osaze Odewengie was not getting it right in the Nations Cup qualifier last Wednesday he was substituted and Victor Moses came in and showed that he was a star in the making for Nigeria. He controlled the ball well and had precision in his attack.

When Keshi stood and stretched his hand  to pat Osaze on the back as he was leaving the pitch Osaze ignored Keshi and quickly reached for a bottle of water.

He appeared unhappy that he was being substituted. But Keshi did not look at his face. His eyes were focused on the field and he probably did not see Osaze’s action. But those who watched closely saw what happened.

Osaze wasn’t happy that he was substituted and walked straight to the bench, reaching out for a bottle of water instead of shaking his coach Stephen Keshi. He could have taken the water and still responded to Keshi’s pleasantry. He did not. His countenance pictured his mind.

“I did not even take notice of what he did as I had my eyes on the pitch at the same time,” Keshi said when this reporter asked him about it.

Richard who saw it all was  outraged.

“Was Osaze sad that he was changed,” Richard, rhetorically, asked again?

“I told you that the match would be a David and Goliath affair and your stars from Europe almost made it so. Our fans expected a lot from them but they were no where in this match. These big names have been failing your country and today wasn’t different.”

Richard, like their coach Militi, has been monitoring Nigeria’s football and knew why Nigeria did not qualify for the last Nations Cup.

Keshi, Daniel Amokachi, Sylvanus Okpala, Valere and Shorunmu all agreed that Nigeria could have won the match if they fielded the team that beat Liberia two weeks ago. They have concluded to field more of the local players in subsequent matches especially during the qualifiers for Nations Cup and World Cup.

They have been building a new national team and want to build confidence into the local Eagles. Four played in Kigali and excelled more than the Europe-based players.

 

 

 

NFF IMPASSE NSC seeking answers from FIFA

NATIONAL Sport Commission (NSC) hopes a March trip to see FIFA boss Sepp Blatter will address the crisis in the country’s Football Federation.

In January, a federal high court in Abuja dissolved the football federation (NFF) and Premier League (NPL).

The court declared that only the Nigeria Football League (NFL) and the Nigeria Football Association (NFA) have the legal authority to operate.

The NFA became the NFF in 2009, but failed to register the change properly. This is why the Nigerian law is refusing to recognise the NFF as the national body governing the country’s football.

Nigeria’s Sports Commission – which is in effect its sports ministry – has now stepped in  to set up a meeting with FIFA.

“I can confirm that the Sports Commission plan to meet with the FIFA president on 15 March in Zurich to discuss this situation,” Tony Ohaeri, spokesman for the sports commission, told BBC Sport on Monday.

“There is a need to meet with FIFA to explain the situation concerning the Nigeria Football Association and the Nigeria Football Federation. The NSC representatives will travel to Switzerland for this important meeting, and  hopefully there will be a solution to the path to follow.”

Days after the initial ruling by the federal high court in Abuka, the NFF filed an appeal as well as a motion for a stay of execution of the judgement pending appeal.

On Monday, the court adjourned the hearing on the stay of execution until  April 19.

According to Akin Olujimi, counsel to the NFF, the body will continue to operate on the basis that they followed due process in filing the appeal.

“We will argue the case on April 19, but what the law says is that my clients can go about their jobs,” he explained.

Nigeria’s Super Eagles are trying to revive their flagging fortunes after their failure to qualify for this month’s African Cup of Nations.

But court cases, infighting and government interference in the administration of the NFF have overshadowed plans to revitalize football in the country.

FIFA had initially imposed a ban for what it called “government interference” in the running of Nigerian football in the wake of the national side’s early exit from the World Cup.

But it lifted the ban provisionally after some steps were taken, notably allowing the country to play a 2012 Nations Cup qualifier in Guinea.

FIFA rules prohibit any government intervention with its members.

Nigeria are currently ranked 56th by FIFA – their worst rating by the world governing body in 12 years.
