Investing with a Peaceful Heart for the Right Reasons

At first glance, the financial markets may seem like a cesspool of activity. A place where greed and corruption dominate proceedings, all in the name of profit. However, the financial markets are also a place where goodness can thrive. Many of the world’s foremost benefactors of charitable causes have been blessed with good fortune on international bourses.

Examples abound, with names like Bill and Melinda Gates and their phenomenal Gates Foundation, Warren Buffett and his extensive philanthropic networks, and countless others. Many people have put their heart and soul into building an empire and then distributing from their profits to those in need. This is the Christian way.

Making a positive change in the world around us

I’ve often wrestled with the concept of dabbling in the financial markets for personal gain. However, I do believe that the Lord above has granted each one of us the wisdom and insight needed to succeed in our daily lives. I have been researching trade ideas on the global financial bourses for quite some time, investing marginal amounts in stocks, commodities, indices, and currency pairs over the years. FULL POST

Hostel or PG is the only place which unites different type of roomies all together with an amazing bond of care and affection. Here, we have mentioned some crazy characters that can be easily discovered in every Hostel or PG accommodation in India.

1) Lazy One (Indolent Roomies): What you can expect from a lazy roomie, who even find waking up the hardest task of the day. Joining her as a room partner can often raise your BP because you are the sole person to do all things like cooking, cleaning, dishwashing and tidiness.

5 Habits of Engaged Employees That Get Them Promoted

 Moving up the ladder is something that every employee wants as it implies more learning and financial opportunities. However, not every employee can work hard towards getting a promotion. Successful employees in the workplace have a different approach when it comes to building their career. They have taken the steps to maintaining their job, to the point of even delivering more than what is expected.

An engaged employee is able to attain success not because he has the right skills, but because he has developed good habits over time. These habits are the reasons why engaged employees get noticed and win every time.

1. They focus on solutions.

A solution-focused thinking is always a key ingredient to getting work done effectively. The problem with a lot of people is that they panic, avoid, and let someone else take charge when they encounter a problem they can’t handle. The truth is, a problem will always be there unless you do something about it. An employee who focuses on solutions knows that the best approach to a problem is to change the way how he deals with it rather than accept that there’s nothing that can be done. FULL POST

How to Retain Employees in Today’s World

To run a successful business, you have to do more than hire great people, you have to give those people a reason to stay with you. Otherwise, you’re making an investment in employees that you get little return on. Some of these employees just want a year or so of experience before they move on to other jobs. Others find that your company just isn’t a good fit for them. There are a number of different techniques you can use to improve your employee retention and, at the same time, boost employee morale and productivity. Here are a few of these strategies.

Hire the Right People

Does the person you’re interviewing for a job seem excited about your company? If so, he or she may be a great fit and stay with your business for years. However, if you notice that someone has a resume full of different jobs, it could be a sign that the person likes to switch jobs fairly regularly. Those who have little or no experience may also leave after a few years. By hiring people who mesh well with your company philosophy and fit in with your team, you’ll be hiring someone who will feel comfortable staying with your company for years. FULL POST

5 Best Practices To Choose Right UI Design Colors for Your WordPress Site

Have you ever visited those minimalistic design websites which look so simple, with the basic layout yet are still so eye catchy? Well, most of the acknowledgment goes to the colors used by these websites for a flawless UI experience just to make the website look out of the box. Our common tendency while boosting a website’s UI experience is to ignore the role of colors. Contrary to this, the colors play an active and effective part in communicating a brand message of a website. They improve the website’s structure and enhance object recognition.

Colors also have a positive effect on a user’s psychology. If you picked light colors for the navigation menu and are using bright colors for the website’s background, you’re all set to make the menu difficult to read. A study conducted by User Testing revealed that users prefer bright and dark color websites over the white interface. Further, another study was conducted by Ironpaper which concluded that the colors do increase the website recognition by whopping 80 percent! FULL POST

Motivation Or Discipline: Which One's More Essential

You look at successful people and you wonder how they did it. You hear the stories about the successful man or woman who grew up with nothing and somehow managed to end up a millionaire. You see the successful restaurateur who parlayed a food cart into a chain of restaurants and you wonder how it was done. You hear that anyone can make something of themselves if they just try. But trying isn’t all of it, is it? These successful people must have something more and they do, but it isn’t something you don’t have, it’s something they developed.

Motivation

One thing successful people have is motivation. They have something that causes them to act. It could be simply refusing to live in poverty forever. It could be that they want their parents to be proud of them or they wanted to be the first in their family to own a business or become the head of a company. Just like the children that are the first in their family to graduate from high school or college, people that are successful started out with a goal or a vision. There was something in their lives that was missing or that made them unhappy or discontented and they sought to change it. FULL POST
