Bogus Holiday Clubs, Beware

Have you ever gotten a call or received an email telling you that you have won a holiday to one of the most coveted destinations? If you haven’t, then you most likely have heard of a friend or a friend to a friend who has gotten such an invitation. That is how common this scam is.

I first heard it with a friend of mine who was very excited to have won a trip to Egypt. She visualized herself going to the Egyptian tombs, dressing up as Cleopatra, viewing the pyramids and sipping cold water in the desert. Nothing ever sounded so exhilarating.

As expected of any winner, she queried on how she could get her hands on the gift. She got directions to the building where the winner would attend a short presentation in regards to the trip. On getting there she was ushered into a meeting room where a smartly dressed man introduced himself as the marketing manager and sat down. He then continued to explain to a group of people, who had apparently been informed that they have won, that the trip would cost half price with accommodation, food and a chauffeured cab. He was persuasive that this is the best offer one can get.

My friend started to doubt the man and decided to ask for time to get some money and come back. Her research showed that the man she had met had actually inflated the cost of visiting Egypt and that there exists many more travel companies that offer a better package. Further findings revealed that the ‘marketing manager’ and his team were conning a number of people with false allegations of winning while they only want to make money.

So the next time someone calls or emails you telling you that you have won a holiday, investigate further.

    Karim - Positive thinking


Achievement - Power And Ability Of A Positive Mind

“Attitude is everything!” This statement carries so much truth that if every one took time to think about it and make necessary adjustment in life, then our lives would change for the better. Many times in our quest for self improvement, we have concentrated on changing and improving many things but our attitude.

Attitude is a person’s frame of mind. It is the mindset that a person has that helps him to develop a world view. Attitude is expressed by how we respond to issues. One person once said, “Life is not what happens to you but how you respond to issues”. Two individuals may encounter a similar negative situation but how they will each respond will determine the outcome.

One of the main attitudes we need to embrace is cultivating a positive mindset or attitude. As you read through history you encounter ordinary individuals who did extra ordinary things. Moses in the Bible was known to stammer in his speech but he became the deliverer. Abraham Lincoln on the other hand educated himself; he had no formal education but became the most acclaimed president in the history of the United States.

Mother Teresa, a simple nun in Calcutta also became an icon through her acts of mercy and philanthropy. The list could go on and on. What characterized these people was a positive mindset, they all believed in possibilities and they responded decisively for the good of humanity.

Regardless of your present status and condition, you can accomplish anything with positive thinking. There is power that is released through positive thinking and once it is released, it will always work for you. Positive thinking acts to enhance your abilities and virtues. Nothing is impossible to him that believes.
