It’s time to take a new look at “failure.” Learn why you should look forward to it, and how it can help you ultimately get where you want to go. “There is no such thing as failure” When you read the quote above, what’s your reaction? Do you think it’s untrue? Silly, glass-half-empty stuff? What if I told you that only you have the power to decide whether or not something is indeed, a “failure?” In fact, there are some individuals—highly successful people—who believe the very word “failure” has no place in our vocabulary. Let’s talk about why. Opposite Day As a kid, you probably played that game “opposite day.” You’d play practical jokes on your family and friends and release some passive aggression in the process of claiming “opposite day.” It was great—you could call the cutest girl in the class “ugly,” and then take it all back by simply exclaiming “opposite day!” But, the end result is the same; you still would have acknowledged her cuteness.
Ever gone on a date with a guy, expected to hear from him but, for reasons you don't understand, he never calls you back? We're guessing the answer is yes. Author, matchmaker and dating coach Rachel Greenwald knows a thing or two about this subject. She asked 1,000 men why they didn't call women back, and the results are in her book, conveniently titled, "Why He Didn't Call You Back: 1,000 Guys Reveal What They REALLY Thought About You After Your Date." The book contains actionable advice about how to ace a first date.
Dating expert Rachel Greenwald, author of Why He Didn't Call You Back, talks about dating etiquette, first date tips and how to make sure you get a second date. "To me a successful first or second date is simply an invitation to go out again. You can't really get to know who the person is deep down until you spend more time with them, so the lack of a follow-up date invitation means that someone has quickly stereotyped you."
Shana cringed whenever I chewed on a pen –-which was pretty much every time I had one nearby. I told her that I heard her, was trying my best to remember not to do it around her, and that it wasn’t personal. After the 23rd time of being yelled at –yelled at—while I was concentrating on a crossword, I told her I felt nagged. She replied, "I nag because I love." I nag because I love is one of those phrases thoughtlessly tossed out of convenience to excuse bad behavior, but if you put any thought into, you’d realize doesn’t hold up. Think "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" or "The surge is working."
