People will probably forget what you said and they will possibly 
forget what you did . . . but they will never forget how you made
 them feel!
Either a good or bad word from someone will stay with you for a long while - but how they made you feel in what they said - will stay with you forever!!!
Of course there's two sides to this principle (as there is for most things in life) - both equally important!!!
One aspect is the negative, destructive one.   If we drive a nail into something, or a knife into someone (whether real or virtual) - even when we remove them - the resulting damage, or scar, remains forever !!!   Please stay aware of that - without focusing on it.

The other aspect of this principle - the one we really should focus on - is the power of encouragement!!!
The power of uplifting words or actions to another individual - or group of people - is almost impossible to measure - but the results will be sustainable if the words or actions are used consistently!!!
Many of us are in the practice of using positive self-talk and affirmations to keep us uplifted - or to overcome some deep adversity in our lives that has left a scar.   It is a great way to achieve good things and to maintain a constant "feel good" mentality - but just one little chunk of encouragement from someone else is usually far more uplifting (by a factor of ten - at least) and the affects longer-lasting.
My suggestion to you is to give encouragement on a daily basis - and if you're not particularly good at it - then try it for just one week and see how it feels - and observe the change in the dynamics of the people around you - they will be incredible..... once they're over the shock :)   One week of successful encouragement will change your entire life - because it will become a great habit!!!
Sure - it's easy to say nothing if someone in our lives does something that involves some level of achievement (no matter how large or small) - but your life (and theirs) will become far richer and more fulfilling if you can learn to give genuine praise and encouragement!!!   It may not even be achievement just yet - they may only be 'trying' to do something - but just not quite getting there (?).  
Your positive help just may allow them to reach the goal that they are so desperately seeking.  Give it a go - you've got absolutely nothing to lose - and so much to gain!!!
If you're striving for a particular goal yourself - let persistence, patience, and courage be your closest friends - you'll get there!!!

Hi Friends,   7 Ways to adapt your trading in Volatile Markets.

Stay disciplined and stick to your trading plan:     Emotions have no place in trading.  Decisions regarding which stocks to own should be based on fundamental analysis or other research that examines the financial condition of the underlying companies.  When markets get choppy, knowing what to own becomes even more important.  Once you have a target list of stocks, employing technical analysis—the study of stock prices and trends—can help you select your entry and exit prices.  Then, monitor your positions carefully.  Set realistic profit and loss thresholds and follow them when the stock price moves outside of these bounds.  Don’t expect to outperform the broader market each year, even professionals rarely do that.  Also remember that you don’t have to trade your entire portfolio actively—in fact, you shouldn’t.  Instead, consider your personal risk tolerance when deciding how much of your portfolio will be used for trading—perhaps something  like 20-30%---and then keep the rest of your portfolio as core holdings.  With these longer-term investments, be sure to stay diversified and stick to your target asset allocation.

Maintain your risk tolerance and trade smaller positions:      Most traders think they have a high tolerance for risk—that is, until they encounter a bear market.  Before that happens, make sure you understand your capacity to withstand losses.  Don’t assume overly large positions to maximize gains if you aren’t comfortable with the risks involved.  When trading, consider scaling in and out of positions by buying the stock in increments as its price fluctuates, or selling in increments when you think it may be getting close to a top.  When properly managed, scaling in and out can reduce your overall cost basis and prevent you from owning too much of a position that is moving against you.

Hi Friends,   Online Trading:   Online trading means the purchase and sale of stocks on the Internet.  All stock exchanges offer an e-trading facility.  Earlier, trading took place in the trading hall.  Orders were placed with the stockbroker either verbally (personally or telephonically) or in a written form (fax).  In online trading, the investor accesses a stockbroker’s website through his/her Internet-enabled personal computer and places orders through the broker’s Internet-based order routing and trading engine.  These orders are routed to the stock exchange without manual interference and then given effect.  All the players in the securities market, viz., stockbrokers, stock exchanges, clearing corporations, depositories, DPs, clearing banks, etc., are electronically linked.  The information flow happens in real time among them.  The orders are routed to the exchange in seconds.   Many securities trading agencies provide online trading facilities to their clients’ homes.  Earlier, computer terminals at the brokers’ premises acted as the trading platform but now it has been shifted to the homes of investors.  This provides more transparency in transactions.  The investor knows exactly when and at what rate his order was processed.  Manipulation is difficult.

Procedure for online trading:   Listed below are the main steps involved in online trading: A. An Investor has to register with the online trading portals listed on the site.  B.  He has to open a bank account using the Internet, at the trading portals of banking and depository service partners.  C. He must be a registered connect user.   D. On placing an order to buy or sell securities through the listed online trading portal, he has to click on the ‘pay through’ bank listed on the online portal, which will direct him to a login screen of the investor’s account.  E.  Once the login ID and password are entered, he has to verify the transaction details and confirm the transaction by entering his transaction ID and password.   F.  An email confirmation will follow giving the status of the transaction, once the order has been executed.  G. His account status is updated on a real-time basis.  The securities’ status can be viewed online after the day of settlement.

Thanking you,                                                                         See You Later.

One of the first miracles in my life was when I was just 11 year's old, when my
 mother picked me up from school, my father was with her. My mother was 
crying a little, so I asked her why?  She then told me that she had terminal 
cancer.  What is cancer, I said she then told me.  Watching her go down
 hill for 
the first six months, she began teaching me how to get my younger sister's 
ready for school, guided me in how to cook for the family.  We all would gather
 around and pray each night for a miracle. My mother was searching to
someone to come and anoint her.  She found that church, and they came 
out and anointed her. Each day she began getting better and better.  Well,
 was 50 years ago and she's still telling me what to do!

QUOTES-Jealousy Quotes, Sayings about haters

Love me or hate me I’m still gonna shine.
I keep my head held high and smile, because there are people who will kill to see me fall.

Never hate people who are jealous of you, but respect their jealousy because they’re the ones who think you’re better than them.
An old Cherokee told his grandson:

“My son, there’s a battle between two wolves inside us all.

One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness & truth.”
The boy thought about it, and asked:

“Grandfather, which wolf wins?”

The old man quietly replied:

“The one you feed.”

Jealousy releases anger and anger is the greatest and the ultimate enemy that can forever determine your judgement and ultimately withhold your destiny.
It’s sad how some people are so jealous and intimidated by you that they only have negative things to say when they know absolutely nothing about you.
Chances are that when someone is hating on you, it’s not about you at all. It’s about them. It’s their fear, their jealously, their boredom, and their insecurity.
Jealousy is a terrible disease…Get well soon!

When guys get jealous it can be kinda cute. When girls get jealous World War III is about to start.
I’m Sorry.

Sometimes I get jealous thinking that someone else could make you happier than I could. I guess it’s my insecurities acting up. Because I know I’m not the prettiest, smartest, or most fun and exciting. But I do know that no matter how and long you look; you’ll never find somebody that loves you like I do.

People would say bad things about you, because it is the only way their insignificant self can feel better than you.

“I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”   (Bible)

Memorizing God’s word on a regular basis enables our hearts to keep an account of the Bible’s teachings.  This is most valuable to us when we are facing trials and temptations.  We can rely on God’s word to encourage, strengthen, and help us overcome evil.  The key to hiding His word in our hearts is specifically choosing the right scriptures for whatever we are dealing with -- We will find our hearts becoming a treasure of hope.

There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more.  He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness.  We must have felt what it is to die, Morrel, that we may appreciate the enjoyments of life.  Live then,  and be happy, beloved children of my heart, and never forget, that until the day God will deign to reveal the future to man, all human wisdom is contained in these two words,  ‘Wait and Hope.’  -- Alexander Dumas.

Hi Friends,   Capital Markets:    Capital markets are perhaps the most widely followed markets.  Both the stock and bond markets are closely followed and their daily movements are analyzed as proxies for the general economic condition of the world markets.  As a result, the institutions operating in capital markets – stock exchanges, commercial banks and all types of corporations, including nonbank institutions such as insurance companies and mortgage banks – are carefully scrutinized.  The institutions operating in the capital markets access them to raise capital for long term purposes, such as for a merger or acquisition, to expand a line of business or enter into a new business, or for other capital projects.  Entities that are raising money for these long-term purposes come to one more capital markets.  In the bond market, companies may issue debt in the form of corporate bonds, while both local and federal governments may issue debt in the form of government bonds.  Similarly, companies may decide to raise money by issuing equity on the stock market.  Government entities are typically not publicly held and, therefore, do not usually issue equity.  Companies and government entities that issue equity or debt are considered the sellers in these markets.

Parambikulam Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the most scenic places in the Western Ghatsand a biodiversity hotspot. It also has the distinction of being the world’s first ever scientifically managed teak plantation. Part of the Anamalai Hills sub-cluster in the Western Ghats, it is under consideration for selection as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located between the Nelliampathy and Anamalai ranges near the Kerala-Tamil Naduborder, the sanctuary spreads across 277 sq km at an elevation of 984 ft to 4593 ft. Started in 1973, the sanctuary was classified as a tiger reserve in 2009. With seven major valleys and three major river systems, the sanctuary has three artificial reservoirs (Parambikulam, Thunacadavu and Peruvaripallam) that are interconnected by canals and rivers. Karimala Gopuram, at an elevation of 4,718 ft, is the highest peak in the sanctuary. The Vengoli Peak is the most popular among tourists as it is easy to climb and also allows the opportunity to spot Nilgiri Tahrs. A variety of trees like teak, sandalwood and rosewood can be seen in the sanctuary that is also home to the oldest and tallest teak trees in the world.

The Kannimara teak tree, believed to be over 350-years-old, is the prime attraction of the region. The sanctuary is home to 39 species of mammals, 16 species of amphibians, 268 species of birds, 61 species of reptiles, 47 species of fishes, 1049 species of insects and 124 species of butterflies making it the perfect destination for wildlife and nature enthusiasts. The reservoir harbors several varieties of aquatic fauna including mugger crocodiles that are often seen sunning on its banks. Besides wildlife spotting and boating on the river, the trek along the defunct Cochin State Forest Tramway is among the ‘must-do’ activities in Parambikulam. The tramway set up in 1905 by the Cochin Maharajas to transport teak from Parambikulam to Cochin Harbour was an engineering marvel but was stopped in 1953. Only rails, bridges, wagons, etc. remain of the narrow gauge railway. Trekking in the sanctuary requires prior permission from the forest officials and can only be undertaken under the guidance of experienced forest guides. While power boats are not allowed, to avoid polluting the lake, nature enthusiasts are taken on a short trip on bamboo rafts as a part of the safari. Like the trek, it is essential to travel with a guide. Open throughout the year, the sanctuary can be visited from 7 am to 6 pm (with entry closing at 4 pm) for a nominal charge. However, the sanctuary should be avoided during monsoon as the rains make the hillsides unstable.

The trek from Parambikulam Dam to Muthuvarachal and back requires two-days. To ensure your safety during the trek, make sure you are always with the forest staff. Watchtowers dot the sanctuary and monitoring the wildlife from them is a good idea. The best place to get a look at a tiger in the reserve is Anakkal Vayal popularly known as the ‘dining table of Parambikulam Tigers’. Follow in on the footsteps of Dr Slim Ali by bird-watching at Kuriarkutty where the legendary ornithologist had stayed for three years. Sail down the river on a house boat made of bamboos by tribal or try ecomeditation deep inside the pristine forest. The consumption of alcohol is strictly prohibited in the sanctuary.

.As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg.  No chains, no cages.  It was obvious that the elephants could, at any time, break away from their bonds but for some reasons, they did not.
You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.  -- Saul Bellow. 
He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.    “Well”, trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at the age, it is enough to hold them.  As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away.   They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”   The man was amazed.  These animals could at any time break free from their bond but because they believed they couldn’t   they were stuck right where they were.  Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?  Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.
