The Magic Of Thinking Big

Few of us know what we really want to accomplish, and even fewer have a plan to get it. So our life is less exciting, less rewarding, and less prosperous than it could be.

This book explains how to take the path that will bring happiness and satisfaction, and will provide technical and emotional support to help you stay on it.

“The Magic of Thinking Big” is a step-by-step guide to achieving personal success.

It is a book recommended for those who work in contact with young people, for in-company training, and for all those who want to improve their quality of life.

How To Make A Good Speech

How To Make A Good Speech

Most people focus on the little and banal things when they have to make a speech.

The only most crucial thing that a good speaker should know is the knowledge of what he will speak about, and an intense desire to tell it to other people.

All successful speakers have one thing in common: they have something to say and feel a burning desire for other people to hear it.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
