Only You Can Stop You

In the journey towards success in life I have discovered that more often than not there are more people who will try to stop you than aid you, even from among our family and friends. And if we give in to their words and pressures, we give them the power to control our lives. So no matter what stage you are in the pursuit of your dreams, remember this; your success or failure…boils down to you, and no one else.

There are people who will discourage you if you set ambitious goals, but never you mind them because, without goals there can be no achievement. There are people who will frown upon you as you seek a better life, but keep seeking because it is essential that all of us find our true place if happiness is to be found. There are those who will laugh and ridicule you…

Why Can’t We Be Friends

Lead us from the Unreal to the Real

Do you find it easy to make new friends? Tell us how you’ve mastered the art of befriending a new person.

Most people would say that the easiest way to make friends is to be yourself. I disagree. I think that the easiest and most efficient way to make new friends is to be nice and not be an asshole. The being yourself comes later. No one is going to like you right off the bat if you’re rude to them or make them feel bad about themselves. Just be nice. It’s that simple.

I quote one of my favorite actors, Darren Criss, and say:

Be-nice-to-people

Facebook Is Forcing All Users To Download Messenger By Ripping Chat Out Of Its Main Apps

Featured Image -- 55

TechCrunch

Facebook is taking its standalone app strategy to a new extreme today. It’s starting to notify users they’ll no longer have the option to send and receive messages in Facebook for iOS and Android, and will instead have to download Facebook Messenger to chat on mobile.

Facebook’s main apps have always included a full-featured messaging tab. Then a few months ago, users who also had Facebook’s standalone Messenger app installed had the chat tab of their main apps replaced with a hotlink button that would open Messenger. But this was optional. If you wanted to message inside Facebook for iOS or Android, you just didn’t download Messenger. That’s not going to be an option anymore.

Soon, all users will have a hotlink in the tab bar at the bottom of their Facebook app that will open Messenger. No more messaging within Facebook For iOS or Android Soon, all iOS and Android users will have a hotlink at the bottom of their Facebook app that will open Messenger.

Notifications about the change are going out to some users in Europe starting today…
