    Good luck is the result of hard work and preparation

    ​Are you prepared for good luck?The world famous golf player Tiger Woods supposedly said once in an interview after making an “impossible” shot: “The more I practice, the luckier I get.” I can only confirm this statement.

She will expect from you not to give only 50 or 80 percent but 100%. She is a no-nonsense kind of…

    Go the extra Mile – it is never crowded

    ​Why going the extra mile countsSometime during the Second World War, a cargo ship got hit by a torpedo and sank in the North Sea, leaving several of its crew to fight for survival in a lifeboat. One of the crew members describe a curious incident that took place shortly after; “There were seven of us on the lifeboat boat, but the third officer passed on barely two hours before we were rescued. He was very dejected and apparently lost heart and just gave up and died.”​This true-life story paints a picture that is all too common in our society today.
