Qualities of a good proof reader
Good with details, spotting errors in spelling, grammar, and the flow of a piece and putting together quality work. A person needs to have good eyesight, and should be able to notice an error in a word right away without looking for further reference. They also need to be excellent at grammar and writing to know when a word has been misspelled or used incorrectly, or if your writing actually makes sense. Applications of these methods in stores in San Diego and Cincinnati have resulted in a 30 percent drop in robberies and a 50 percent decline in violence there. According to the developers of the security system, Hanover brothers, Inc.

While you can learn to proofread, the vast majority of professional proofreaders would probably agree with me that the ability to spot typos and errors is actually a gift, something you’re born with, rather than a learned skill. In fact, it’s probably more like a curse – because when you are a natural proofreader you can’t just switch off the eagle eyes! Watching a movie from another country can help you to understand non-verbal cues by giving you context for those cues. By juxtaposing the situation against the reaction and non-verbal cues you can begin to learn more about those non-verbal cues.

I would tell him in a nice way. Say that "In our culture, we maintain some distance and we were raised this way all our lives. It is difficult for us to change our ways. I prefer to maintain the distance, with due respect. This is not just for you, but for everyone, including my own mom and dad, siblings, and friends. With this I am sure, "He will understand”. Even if I don’t mind him standing so close to me, but other people wouldn’t like it, so it is better to let him know what is right and what is not.

Lesson Ten: Everything you do is an extension of you
the way you spend your time is an extension of who you are. If you surround yourself with people that are not reflective of your truth, no one knows that except you. The company we keep and the actions we do reflect who we are. If you do not like the company you are in, ask yourself why. People often give their best to things that matter most to them. Many people compartmentalize their life. I used to do this too but then I realized that no matter where I go, I take myself with me. Your actions speak about who you are. You can be the most wonderful human being but if you do not act like it when in public or in the work you do, no one will know how wonderful you are except you. Don’t save your best behavior for a special occasion. Each moment is a special occasion…so be your best at all times. Oprah says that "luck is when opportunity meets preparation". No one is going to know how prepared you are if you are not being your best at every moment or surrounded with an environment that is reflective of your awesomeness. Dear friends,

In Life we learn every moment some new things, reviving our thoughts in to those new concepts, gain from others experiances...and so..on... Sometimes, when we are down, we worry too much, we don't know what to do. We don't know how to cope with problems.

Sometimes we have no chance to change anything.
We feel that everything in our life is out of our control, out of our own power. We don't know how to cope with uncertainty and overwhelming challenges. We are stuck, not knowing where to go and what to do.

How do we deal with such a situation? How do we cope?

There is way out of the blues! Our mental response is very powerful tool. If we can't change something, we can change the way we think about it. Understanding what can be done and what can't be done is the only right way to deal with adversity. We have a choice. There is always a choice.

A choice to accept reality and uncertainty, or a choice to sit down and worry forever. We are not able to control everything .
The only thing that we can control is our reaction!
Our response to what happens to us...
