Failure Is The Stepping Stone To Success

The first time a baby tries to walk, most likely he will fall down. No one in this world has learned how to walk without falling. Each and every human being has encountered failure when he was just a baby. Failures have played a vital role in our daily lives.

keyboard-648439_1280

Failures, as well as, success come hand in hand in the daily routine of every individual. While failure only gives a person depression and discouragements; success, on the other hand, gives and individual a sense of pride and joy. No person should ever forget that in the battles of life, failures come into the picture. In this case, every person must never give up or should never lose hope because it is only an obstacle. A human being is never perfect. He often stumbles into the gravel, fall off the building, or experience different kinds of downfall in life. Failures never appear to be good, it always appears as something unpleasant and can sometimes tear a person apart. But the ones who turn itinto something positive and know how to make use of it can work magic. It is just a matter of turning those negative effects into a positive one.

Failures As The Best Teacher

People say that experience is the best teacher. When in truth and in fact, it is the failures you experience that makes a person learn. It is because of failures that a person learns that a certain act can harm another person, or can injure something which cannot be replaced. Each time a person experience failure, he learns some lesson out of it. He will sooner come to realize the basic reason of the failure he has committed. In the next encounter, he will guard himself in committing the same old mistake he had committed before.

failure-215563_1280

What makes our way to success easy and smooth is the experience we have gained every time we commit these failures. If you give up every time you encounter a failure in life, you remain to be a loser. Although you possess the appropriate skill or the necessary strength in achieving this obstacle, you are still a loser when you give in to failure. Every failure gives the person a more opportunity to realize something wonderful. It should not be seen as an inefficiency or loss of a person because without this, nothing is achieved.

Successful People Who Have Conquered Failures

If an individual, armed and prepared thoroughly with the experiences of failures picks up strength, courage, and keeps on going to his destination, success will exist. No one should be ashamed of their failures.

Everyone seeks for the perfect success in life, but only a few of those people get lucky and manage to prolong their success. Hard work is needed in order to achieve your success. When you experience failure, learn how to overcome it and make it as your strength. It is noteworthy to mention the different people who have been successful despite their countless failures.

  • Thomas Edison – the person responsible for inventing the lamp has failed around 700 times before he gets it right. “I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving that those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work,” this was his famous quote that have influenced a lot of people until today.
  • King Bruce of Scotland – he fought for the freedom of Scotland. Although he has experienced a lot of downfalls, he never bothered to quit or give up on his people. Because of his perseverance and hard work, he managed to free his people.
  • Michael Jordan – the famous basketball player was even cut from his basketball team at school.
  • Steve Jobs – maker of Apple was fired from his very own company.
  • Abraham Lincoln – the famous President of the United States of America lost 8 elections before he became president.
  • Henry Ford – he never experienced an instant success. His early business has failed and left him 5 times broke before the Ford Motor Company became successful.

According to the renowned American inventor, philosopher, and architect, “Whatever humans have learned had to be learned as a consequence only of trial and error experience. Humans have learned only through mistakes.”

Failures make every person vigilant and bold. It makes a coward and the weak strong and gives a brave man with the right enthusiasm and vigor. It gives every person a chance to improve himself in order to face every obstacle with cheerfulness and pride.

Although defeat or failure is never easy to swallow or digest, the worst feeling is to face the fact that you are failing in your work which you have been working on for a lot days. Failure can leave a person depressed, miserable, and bitter, but it can turn him upside down if taken seriously and correctly.

Success and failures are relative which can never be taken apart. Failure provides experience that will soon lead to success if correctly dealt with. It is a stepping stone towards the famous success that everyone is trying to achieve. Also, it is important that the causes of your failures must be realized and studied. In this way, you can figure out a way not to commit the same mistakes. Thus, failure never served as a hindrance or obstacle in your life, it serves as a good help in realizing your mistakes to have a perfect success.

Why Drinking Coffee Is More Bad Than Good

There is long lasting debate on the topic, “Is coffee good or bad for health?” When you ask the experts, you will get two different answers for the same question. Some experts say drinking coffee is extremely good for health, while others are not very much interested in the mediocre benefits associated with drinking coffee.

background-20486_1280

People, who support drinking coffee, and generally define it as a health drink, cite many reasons that support their claim.

Following are some of them:

  • it is rich in nutrients and antioxidants
  • it enhances brain’s functions
  • reduces the risk of diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and type 2 diabetes
  • and it lowers the risk of liver related diseases

But, the reasons mentioned above, for many people, are not quite convincing enough to state that “drinking coffee on a regular basis is healthy for a human body.” Not many experts can say that either.

On the contrary, the disadvantages associated with drinking coffee, can easily outweigh the advantages associated with it. Let us now learn about some of the disadvantages that accompany every cup of coffee you take.

Disadvantages of drinking coffee

 

  • Caffeine damages the liver: It should be noted that caffeine is not the easiest of the substances to digest. In order to digest it, and break down the coffee, liver uses a lot of enzymes. These enzymes are otherwise intended to fight the bad chemicals that enter the blood. This implies that the people, who drink coffee too often, can only limitedly fight the chemicals present in their blood, putting more and more pressure on the liver, which in turn may lead to liver disorders.
  • Decreased sex drive: Like testosterone, adrenal glands present in our body are the main cause for our sexual drive. These glands release hormones which enable us to participate in the sex actively. Drinking a lot of coffee can decrease the production of the sexual hormones, leading to lessened sexual drive or impotency.
  • Infertility: Women who take coffee regularly cease to produce progesterone, a hormone responsible for getting pregnant, resulting in infertility.
  • Blocks emotions: Too much caffeine can actively block human emotions. A person addicted to caffeine can hardly feel human emotions such as sadness, happiness, love, empathy, etc. This is because; caffeine destroys neurotransmitters which are responsible to generate human emotions.
  • Induces depression: Depression is mainly caused due to lack of hormones called serotonin. These hormones are responsible for making humans happy and content, when something good happens. Excessive caffeine suppresses serotonin, inducing depression in the minds of the people. Such people cease to be happy or sad any more. Hence, people who are suffering from depression problems should never consume coffee.
  • Insomnia: Too much consumption of caffeine may lead to insomnia, also known as sleeplessness. This is the reason why our elders ask us not to drink coffee after finishing the dinner. It is advised that people who are having severe sleeping problems should never, ever try drinking coffee again.

Conclusion

Apart from the health conditions mentioned above, caffeine can also cause malnutrition. Drinking too much of coffee can slow down the digestion process dramatically. As a result, our body’s ability to absorb vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, proteins and other essential fats is seriously hampered, making us weak and prone to dangerous bacteria and a host of other infections. Hence, it is highly recommended that one should keep a regular check on their coffee drinking habit, and keep it as low as possible, if are unable to completely get rid of it.

Despite the busy schedule and loads of work you have to do, it is always best to have a time off your schedule and enjoy the remaining time to yourself and your self alone. Do not be disturbed by the ring of your smartphone, notifications in your Facebook account, and emails from your boss or other colleagues. Look for some place you can relax even just for a 30-minute break. And the best way to fulfill this relaxation moment is to leave your smartphone be. Take note of everything you have to do or things you need to do something important and just leave your smartphone at home.

technology-791911_1280

Although many people get lost if they don’t have their smartphones along with them, you should be an exception to today’s world. Train yourself to leave a day without smart phones. Leaving home without your smartphone can contribute to a whole lot of positive effects in your life.

Advantages

The most important advantage when you leave your smartphones at home is that it can give you the opportunity to focus on what you are doing. You can concentrate on your work, reflect on the things you have done, and talk to your friends with all ears. Without your smartphone, the opportunity to think and relate to someone else exists because your attention is not diverted by the things that are going on in your phone.

Also, you will be able to relax and think for a moment all of the things you have done for the past few days, weeks, months, or years. You will have that opportunity to reunite yourself with your past and remember all the fun things you have made without the existence of a smartphone.

Avoiding from smartphones once a day in a week can even contribute a positive effect to your health. It can decrease problems caused by infrared and radiation. It can also decrease the elements of stress and frustrations you are facing in your day to day life.

It will also help you train yourself to rely on notes and maps when you are travelling.

The harder you achieve something the longer you will remember it. Thus, when you find it hard doing something and succeed it, you will be able to remember it for as long as you can. Unlike the stuffs you learn when you are just searching it in the web. You will be more independent than you can ever think of.

man-690201_1280

There are times when a person just needs to disconnect himself from the busy life he has, but it is because of the smartphones that makes it hard for them to disconnect. For those who are fond of doing their own way without the help of a smartphone find it easier to reconnect themselves with either the environment or the people that surrounds them.

NOD32 Is The Best Antivirus In My Opinion

When I had my computer back, I wanted to have the best antivirus software so I conducted a research and found out that one of the best antivirus is the ESET NOD32 Antivirus, otherwise known as the NOD32. I purchased it and installed it on my computer. Until now, it functions more than what I expected. This is why I consider this type of antivirus as the best antivirus among the rest.

All About NOD32

The antivirus is made by the Slovak company named ESET. The company has been providing the people the possibilities to enjoy their technology in a safe way for 25 years now. The ESET NOD32 Antivirus was released and sold in 2 editions such as the Business Edition and the Home Edition. The Business edition has the capability to allow server management and deployment, install Microsoft Windows Server OS, and mirror the database updates on threats.

Antivirus-Eset-NOD32-Computer

NemocnicanaOkrajiDisku is the acronym of the famous NOD32 and it stands for ‘Hospital at the end of the disk’. The person responsible for this name got this idea from a Czechoslovak medical drama series which is entitled as the “Hospital at the end of the city”. NOD-ICE was the very first version of NOD32 and it was only a DOS-based program. In 1987, it was created by Peter Paško and MiroslavTrnka during the time when viruses in the computer started to rampantly increase and hard to control in computers running in DOS. Because of the limitations found in the operating system, the software did not feature any protection that is on-access or on-demand. Not even the features of the current versions were made available.

Because of the rapid increase of the Windows environment in the world market, there was an increase in the need for software’s like the antivirus. Thus, the original program, which is the NOD-ICE, was rewritten or restructured to comply with the world’s standard. The company began from scratch and made the right antivirus that can support every concern when it comes to malware. It was named as NOD32 in order to give emphasis on the radical change from the previous version. The antivirus was also made to be compatible with 32-bit CPU and Windows.

ESET_NOD_32

The program has gained its popularity in the Eastern European countries because of the vast interest in the field of Information Technology and because ESET was primarily based in Slovakia. In June 25, 2014, the ESET Company reached about 10000th virus definitions update.

WhyNOD32?

NOD32 never slows my computer down and it protects it from viruses perfectly. It can be very light on the computer hardware, but detects malware as hard as it can. The NOD32 is the award-winning technology of ESET because of its cutting edge security. The antivirus can be updated day in and day out in order to provide the computer the security it can get.

7BE

The program can block URLs with malware-host and thus, thoroughly securing your computer from harm. It even possesses a phishing protection for additional safety. The social media scanner of the ESET NOD32 helps and automatically gives warning to the user if it finds dangerous links found on any Facebook page. Another best feature is that the program includes training on interactive online cyber security.

Also, ESET asks a confirmation from the user before it removes the potentially unwanted applications that are less-risky compared to others. It is also great because the files are being detected by a heuristic analysis instead of detection it by signature.

eset-gets-a-nod32-audi-a3-antivirus-car-from-vilner_6

The ESET NOD32 has an important feature which is the Threat sense scanning engine because through this feature, it shields the computer from any malicious codes and proactively blocks Trojans, rootkits, worms, and spyware that are the cause for your computer to slow down.

Aside from those features, it is also important to consider the company’s support services. The ESET NOD32 has a very reliable and accommodating support service center in their website which answers every concern as soon as they get it. The company has an industry-leading and free customer support services. The ones who entertain you are not just some normal employees; they are ESET professionals who are locally employed to be at your service.

Biometric Database – Would You Join It?

Biometric database has made it worldwide. It became a concern since Edward Snowden leaked the classified information on the mass surveillance program. The Biometric is interrelated with human characteristics. It is a kind of realistic authentication, which is a form of access and identification control. This system has the ability to identify different individuals who are under surveillance by the authorities.

united-kingdom-653010_1280

The so-called biometric identifiers are responsible for measuring characteristics of individuals in order to label and describe them for faster identification and access. It often characterizes characteristics which are physiological rather than behavioral. Examples of physiological characteristics are:

  • Palm Veins
  • Face Recognition
  • Fingerprint
  • Palm Print
  • DNA
  • Iris Recognition
  • Scent/odor
  • Hand Geometry

Some of the pros and cons of having a DNA database are laid down. The advantages of having a DNA database are as follows:

security-241730_1280

  • It can be more accurate and objective compared to other forensic disciplines.
  • Authorities say that using DNA database can help in the easy identification of suspects who may be subjected to a possible investigation. Since DNA can be extracted from saliva, semen, blood, hair roots left at the crime scene with the use of a chemical solution, individuals committing crimes can easily be identified.
  • With DNA database, familial searching can be used in order to look matches between a DNA profile of an individual which is retained in the database and the DNA sample from the scene.
  • Researchers who support the DNA database argue that the privacy of every citizen is not violated because the procedure in procuring the DNA sample is much less interfering or invasive than what is required for obtaining a blood sample.

dna-163466_1280

On the other hand, the disadvantages are:

  • It can be infallible and therefore environmental factors like bacteria, sunlight, and heat can easily corrupt it.
  • DNA can be subjected to human fraud or error in the course of comparing different samples.
  • There is a possibility that overlooking DNA evidence can violate the right of a person.
  • Those who are against the DNA database argue that their privacy is still violated along the process because the DNA samples are still retained in the hands of the authorities.

“I don’t want to live in a world where everything I say, everything I do, everyone I talk to, every expression of creativity and love or friendship is recorded”, says Edward Snowden. Also, the news reports mentioned that according to the whistleblowers, the famous USA Freedom Act can greatly affect the lives of the people since it has a potential to lower or degrade the surveillance programs, rather than making it improve in accordance with the rights of the people. That even if the Freedom Act is faithfully and fully implemented, it will create barriers that will limit the rights of the citizenry. Loopholes and other strategies can still be discovered to curtail the privacy of every individual.

Biometric database can either be used for the greater good or not depending on the person or government controlling or running it. Everything has its advantages at the same its disadvantages. So, would you join or stand against it?
