A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
Her mum came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile: my sweetie, could you give your mum one of your two apples?
The girl looked up at her mum for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.
The mum felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mum,and said: mummy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.
No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement. Give others the privilege to explain themselves. What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.
Which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.
Those who like to pay the bill, do so not because they are loaded but because they value friendship above money.
Those who take the initiative at work, do so not because they are stupid but because they understand the concept of responsibility.
Those who apologizes first after a fight, do so not because they are wrong but because they value the people around them.
Those who are willing to help you, do so not because they owe you any thing but because they see you as a true friend.
Those who often text you, do so not because they have nothing better to do but because you are in their heart.
Could have or would have?
You use ‘could have’ to talk about possibilities in the past:
‘I could have married someone else but I chose you.’
‘We could have won the game.’
‘Could have’ is always followed by the past participle:
‘I could have written to him, but I chose to call him instead.’
‘Would have’ also refers to possibilities in the past, but is more frequently used with ‘if’ clauses and expresses more certainty:
‘I would have passed the test if I’d gotten one more question right.’
‘He would have made the team if he had trained harder.’
Make an example sentence using:
- could have
- would have
Phrasal Verb: Dry off
Meaning: Dry something quickly, or dry the surface
Example: I had a shower and DRIED myself OFF.
Most of them are out dated
Those rules that are taught in most Indian schools about formal letter writing don't apply anymore
Before I begin
I want all of you to forget all that you learnt in school about formal letter writing
Most of job applications nowadays happens through emails
So it's very important that we know how to write a professional email
Rule 1. Use only the first name
Don't use Mr./ Dr. / Ms.
If his full name is Nicholas Brown
You will write
Not Hi Mr. Brown or Dear Mr. Brown
Or Respected Mr. Brown
Just the first name
But please use the full first name
Don't use Nick names
Don't replace Nicholas with Hi Nick
Use simple language
Don't use any Ornamental or language of flattery
Example - in schools you must have written a formal letter stating with
"I would like to bring to you notice" or I would beg to bring to your notice
Or "with due respect and humble submission"
Never ever use such sentences in your emails .
Be direct and spefic
If you writing an email to someone for the first time you can start with
This is to inform you..."
Or if it's not the first time and its a follow up email
Then you can start with
This is to update you..."
We were told in school that
"Dear" can not be used in formal letters
But that no longer applies
You can write an email to even your boss or client starting the email with Dear
In the fast moving world we live in
No one has the time to sit and read long emails.
The key to writing effective emails is to be brief and specific and nor giving information that is not required
And then go directly into the subject or purpose of writing the email.
A lot of people when they attach something in thier email
They say "please find attached my CV "
You find something that lost or hidden
We should write
I have attached my CV with this mail, please review it and consider my application for the position of soft skills trainer"
Or ...please review it and consider my application in reference to the job opening for Soft Skills trainer posted in Naukri.com
1. You can start an business or formal email
With Hi or Dear
Say if you have received a confirmation email from an HR of a company names Nicholas
You start the mail with
Or Dear Nicholas
I am trying to quickly complete the lessons that are already done in the group for the new members so that we could start with business English vocab
Also some of us write for attachment
"Enclosed with this mail is the data"
"The trainee list is enclosed with the mail/enclosed herewith"
This is also wrong ,because enclose means to close something together , it is used with letters, if along with a letter you send another document in the same envelope to be sent by post , like "I have enclosed my degrees with this letter"
But in case of an email , you don't close something, no never use enclosed

How to Drive Manual
Have you ever wanted to learn at least the basics of how to drive a manual transmission? Luckily, the basic concepts of starting to move a manual transmission car and shifting through the gears is a process anyone can learn. This guide will help you out.
Try to get on level ground. Put your seat belt on once you get in. While learning, it's better to roll down the windows. This helps to better hear the engine sound and adjust the gear changes accordingly.
The one on the far left is the clutch , the middle one is the brake, and then the gas/accelerator is on the far right (CBA). This layout is the same for both left hand drive and right hand drive vehicles.
Learn what the clutch does:
The clutch disengages the spinning engine from the spinning wheels and allows you to switch gears without grinding the teeth of each separate gear.
Before you switch gears (moving up or down), the clutch must be depressed.
Adjust the seat position forward enough to allow you to press the clutch pedal (the left pedal, next to the brake pedal) fully to the floor with your left foot.
Press the clutch pedal and hold it to the floor. This would also be a good time to take note of how the travel of the clutch pedal differs from that of the brake and gas, and it is a good idea to get used to slowly and steadily releasing the clutch pedal.
Move the gear shift knob to neutral. This is the middle position that feels free when moved from side to side. The vehicle is considered out of gear when:
the gear shift is in the neutral position, or
the clutch pedal is fully depressed.
Start the engine with the key, making sure to keep the clutch pedal held to the floor.
Once the engine is started, you can remove your foot from the clutch pedal (as long as it is in neutral).
Press the clutch to the floor again and move the gear shift knob to first gear. It should be the upper left position, and there should be some kind of visual layout of the gear pattern on top of the gear shift knob.
Slowly lift your foot up from the clutch pedal until you hear the engine speed begin to drop, then push it back in. Repeat this several times until you can instantly recognize the sound. This is the friction point.
In order to get moving, lift your foot up from the clutch pedal until the RPMs (revs) drop slightly and apply light pressure to the accelerator (GAS). Balance the light downward pressure on the accelerator with slowly releasing pressure on the clutch pedal. You will probably have to do this several times to find the right combination of pressure up and down. Another way of doing it is to release the clutch until the moment during which the engine revs down a little and then applying pressure on the accelerator as the clutch engages. At this point the car will start to move. It is best to have the engine rev just enough to prevent stalling as the clutch pedal is let up. This process may be a little difficult at first because you are new to the 3 pedals in manual. Always be ready to pull the hand brake to stop in emergency till you have learned.
If you release the clutch too quickly the car will stall. If the engine sounds like it is going to stall, then hold the clutch where it is or even push it further in slightly. Excessive engine speed while the clutch is between fully up and fully depressed will wear out the clutch parts prematurely resulting in slippage or smoking of the clutch parts at the transmission.
When driving, when your RPM reaches about 2500 to 3000, it is time to shift into second gear. Remember though that it depends fully on the car you are driving what RPM the tachometer will reach before you must change gear. Your engine will begin to race and speed up, and you must learn to recognize this noise. Apply pressure downward on the clutch pedal and guide the gear shift knob straight down from 1st gear into the bottom left position.
Some cars have a "Shift Light" or indications on the speedometer that will tell you when you need to shift so you don't rev the engine too fast.
Push down on the gas very slightly and slowly release the clutch pedal.
Once in gear and on the gas you should completely remove your foot from the clutch pedal. Resting your foot on the clutch pedal is a bad habit, and applies pressure to the clutch mechanism — the increased pressure could allow the clutch to wear prematurely.
When you have to stop, release right foot off accelerator to the brake pedal and press down as much as required and as you slow to about 10 mph (16 km/h) you will feel the car about to start shaking and vibrating. Press the clutch pedal fully down and move the gear shift to neutral to prevent stalling.
Once you have mastered it, driving a manual is fun. You now can rev the engine in any gear for a sportier feel or for a greener pace choose to shift gears at lower rpms.
You may want to apply first gear when the car is parked, in addition to the parking brake.
Learn to recognize the sounds of your engine; you should eventually be able to tell when to change gears without relying on the tachometer.
Make sure you push the clutch all the way in before shifting to the next gear.
If you are having difficulty starting the car from a stop, make sure that you are slowly letting off the clutch. Pause at the friction point (the part where the engine starts to move the car) and continue slowly pulling the clutch out.
When you want to go on a bump,you hold down your clutch and press your brake slightly to slow down and later release the clutch gradually and apply the accelerator gradually to move.
If there is no gear position posted on the shifter, make sure to ask someone who is familiar with the vehicle how the gears are arranged. The last thing you want is to back into something (or someone) when you think you've shifted into first gear.
Check the RPM, and shift gears according to the 20 for second, 30 for third, etc until when at 40 for fourth the sound of the engine is not crying for change in gears. Pay attention to the engine sound.
Do not get distracted while driving such as by texting. This may cause serious injury or even death if you accidentally crash.
Make sure not to rest your left foot on the clutch while driving.
If you know ahead of time that you will be parking on a sharp incline, carry a brick or rock in your car to be placed behind your wheel (carefully). It is not a bad idea to do this all the time; parking brakes, like all parts of the car, become worn with age and may not be able to keep your vehicle in place if a hill is too steep.

How to Become a Success
1 Get up early.
founding father and successful businessman Ben Franklin said "Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise."
Successful people understand that being at their best means taking care of their body.
3 Nurture emotional and mental health.
Research shows that a foundation of emotional health is crucial to overall confidence, which is a key component of successful professional ventures. In other words: Success doesn't create happy people; happy people create success
4 Visualize a plan.
Take time to plot out the course of each day. More than just list building, actually visualize the steps you will take to complete important projects and tasks. Research has shown that visualizing activities increases the speed and success of task completion, meaning that when you visualize your plan, you are able to get more done each day.
5 Know why you want the things you want
Part of success is self-awareness and part of self-awareness is understanding the motives that drive your desires and behaviors
Write out a time budget that describes what you've done and how long it took for the past week
7 Embrace your passion.
One pitfall to success is pursuing a goal because it brought someone else success, ignoring your own passion.
8 Learn to tolerate discomfort and delay reward.
Mental strength does mean not having emotions. It means being aware of emotions you are having, but being strong enough to manage them in the face of unavoidable discomfort.
9 Reflect on your progress.
In the same way that it is important to have a plan, it is equally as important to take a step back and reflect on what you've accomplished and what still remains to be done.
