Signs of great attitude

A successful person is distinguished by its positive mental attitude and by many other factors.
 The signs of great attitude: 

- Self-confidence: Belief in yourself and your abilities

- Focus on solutions: As Miguel Angel Cornejo says, people of excellence are part of the solution, the failed part of the problem.

- Persistence:   For more super great plans you have and more willing to advance you have, if there persistence, plans and therefore zero, zero results. Well, yes, but negative results! Persists to achieve what you set in spite of adversity.

- Sense of responsibility: not only for their lives and achieving their goals but their loved ones and the welfare of others. That is, the sense of responsibility is aimed at supporting the needy.

- Vision: beings have a vision of success. Come see what others do not! Likewise are winners, winners of the medals of success in life. Also, see opportunities where others do not.

- Dedication: A person with positive mental attitude is dedicated. Do not waste time on things that do not contribute to its growth!

- Passion:   A good sign of positive mental attitude is the passion that successful people are dedicated to achieving their goals, their work, their studies. They like what they do! He says the world-renowned investor Warren Buffet. "I love doing business and making money .."

- Thoughts winners: In the minds and hearts of a person with good attitude, there are only winners thoughts, prosperity, abundance, service!

Persevere in what you do to achieve your goals and dreams which should be your main motivation to keep going!

New 7 wonders of the modern world

      1. Taj Mahal, India

The Taj Mahal was built by the Muslim emperor Shah Jahan in honor of his favorite wife, who died giving birth to their fourteenth child.  The Taj Mahal is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements of Islamic architecture, Persian, Indian and even Turkey. The monument has been particularly well known for the romantic character of its motivation. Although the crypt covered by the dome of white marble is the most familiar, Taj Mahal is an integrated set of buildings.

2. Chichen Itza, Mexico 
Chichen Itza, in Yucatan, Mexico, is one of the major archaeological sites of the peninsula and the first of the New Seven Wonders of the World in America. Witness the time when the Maya began to lose its power. The region is a World Heritage Site since 1988. The huge architecture that has survived to this day and today is emblematic of the field, has a clear Toltec power. The god who presides over the site, according to Mayan mythology, is Kukulcan, Maya representation of Quetzalcoatl, god of the pantheon taken from the Toltec culture. 

 3. Christ Redeemer, Brazil

Christ Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro took four years to build, and has the best record: no one died during construction, a rarity in those days. Opened in 1926, is a Herculean work of engineering, architecture and sculpture. It is recognized as one of New Seven Wonders of the World next to Machu Picchu, the Great Wall of China, Rome's Colosseum, the Taj Mahal, Chichen Itza, and Petra.

4. Machu Pichu, Peru

Erected in the mid-fifteenth century on the eastern slopes of the central Andes, is visited and captured in photos by thousands of tourists each year. Machu Picchu is considered both a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. Its unique architectural features and landscape, and the veil of mystery that has woven around much of the literature published on the site, have become one of the most popular tourist destinations on the planet

5. Great Wall, China

The Great Wall of China is also the second wonder among the New Seven Wonders of Modern Asia, an ancient fortification designed to protect the borders from invasion to be built and rebuilt between centuries BC V and XVI. Today only retains 30% of what it was. It has 8,851.8 kilometers long extending from the border with Korea to the Gobi Desert. In any of its images, is revealed as a monumental work. One of the most striking sections of the Ming Great Wall is where steep slopes back. Walk 11 km long, 5 to 8 meters high and 6 meters at the bottom, up to 5 meters at the top.

The Coliseum is the only one of the seven wonders in Europe. Located in the center of Rome and is the symbol of the old classic that remains from the first century when it was built by the Empire Romano. It was originally called Flavian Amphitheatre but was popularized as Colosseum by the Colossus of Nero a large statue that was located next to it. The Coliseum is also a marvel , one of the most photographed monuments in the world. The Colosseum was used for nearly 500 years, celebrating the last games ever in the sixth century, much later than the traditional date of the fall of the Empire, Western Roman in 476 d. C. Just as gladiator fights, many other public spectacles were held here, as naumaquias, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology

7. Petra, Jordan 

Petra in Jordan, was the ancient capital of the Nabataean Kingdom. Its beauty is that this city was literally carved and sculpted in stone. In the middle of a narrow valley, the settlement of Petra stretches from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba. By the eighth century, changing trade routes and suffered earthquakes, led to the abandonment of the city by its inhabitants. Was forgotten in the modern era, and the site was rediscovered for the western world by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812. Many buildings whose facades are directly carved into the rock, forming a unique monument from December 6, 1985, inscribed on the List of World Heritage of UNESCO. The area surrounding the site is also, since 1993, National Archaeological Park.

The return of Whitney Houston

What a disgrace!!!

I remember on a day like today all the important people that moves through the world and leaves us and I get a punishment and bareness student worthy of Kierkegaard.I could talk about many things but I prefer to talk about artists who do not come to die ever. For example, Whitney Houston , who left us shaking off nearly two months ago as a storm.

It seemed impossible that a woman with a prodigious voice could die suddenly because of that death trap that is drugs. But today we have some of it, a trailer, a preview of his new film, 'Sparkel', a comedy drama which hits theaters in August and which plays the mother of three would-be artists. They say that this film, which brought her to the cinema after 15 years without shooting, returned the enthusiasm and drive that eventually were taken from him forever on 11 February. Here you can see the preview:

No proof of drugs was discovered on the landscape, but the medication was discovered in her system.

Houston, whose medication use and intermittent conduct had surpassed her varied music profession, passed away the day before the Grammy Prizes at age 48. The "I Will Always Love You" superstar's body was discovered absorbed under the sea in a shower on it all floor of the place, and when urgent situation physicians came, it was too overdue. She could not be improved and was noticeable deceased 30 minutes after 911 was called.

Police researchers provided subpoenas to physicians and drug stores in order to determine whether prescribed medications felled the celebrity.

Houston was laid to rest Feb. 19 in a New Nj graveyard following a star-studded funeral service at her child years chapel in Newark.

 Thank you.

My Inspiration

Greetings everyone!

I’m new to the blog and this is my very first post on my “Long Lasting Thoughts” Blog. 

I was thinking, what would be the first post, and the thought was come to write about the Great Steve Jobs, who is the co-founder of Apple Inc. He is my ever inspiration personality.

Steve Jobs was blessed on Feb 24, 1955 in San Francisco to Abdulfattah Bob Jandali and Joanne Carole Schieble. Jandali was a Syrian emigrant who was then a move on student and later a political science teacher. Job’s mother was also a move on student at that time and very soon after Steve Job was blessed, she put him up for adoption. A couple from Hill View in Santa Clara Nation, Bob and Clara Tasks therefore adopted him and provided him the name Steven Paul Jobs. To this day, Jobs represents to Paul and Clara as his only mother and father and will not reference them as his adoptive parents.

Steve Jobs’ long profession in computer systems had a somewhat minimal starting when as an excellent student at Cupertino Center University and later Homestead Great University in Cupertino, Florida, he consistently joined sessions at the Hewlett-Packard workplaces after school. He began working there during summer time along with companion and upcoming The apple company co-founder Steve Wozniak. After finishing from high school in 1972, Projects then signed up in Reed College in Tigard, Or. He would later fall out after only joining one term at Reed College, but he ongoing to take sessions there such as one in calligraphy. This category would later end up to have a important impact upon his later profession. Job’s has himself has assigned that course with providing him the idea of presenting several fonts, as well as successfully moving print styles, in the later Apple computer systems produced by The apple company.
In 1976, when Jobs was just 21, he and Wozniak started Apple Computer systems. The duo started in the Tasks family garage area, and financed their business project after Jobs marketed his Volkswagen bus and Wozniak sold his dearest medical finance calculator.

Their first style, the Apple company I, gained them $774,000. Three years after the discharge of their second style, the Apple company II, revenue improved 700 % to $139 thousand cash. In 1980, Apple company Pc became a publically exchanged company with a industry value of $1.2 thousand on the very first day of trading

In 1985, Jobs reconciled as Apple's CEO to begin a new software and hardware organization called NeXT, Inc. The following year Jobs purchased a movement organization from Henry Lucas, which later became Pixar Animation Companies. Knowing in Pixar's potential, Jobs initially spent $50 million of his own money into the organization. Pixar Companies went on to produce incredibly popular movement movies such as Toy Story, Finding Nemo and The Incredibles. Pixar's movies have netted $4 million. The facilities joined with Wally Walt disney in 2006, making Steve Job's Disney's largest investors.

Apple organization gradually purchased the organization in 1997 for $429 thousand. That same year, Jobs came back to his publish as Apple's CEO

The apple company presented such innovative products as the Mac laptop Air, iPod, and iPhone, all of which have determined the progress of today's technology.
In the beginning Nineties, Jobs met Laurene Powell at Stanford business university, where Powell was an MBA student. They committed on April 18, 1991, and resided together in Palo Alto, Florida, with their three kids.

On Oct 5, 2011, The apple company Inc. declared that co-founder Bob Tasks had passed away. He was 56 years old at the time of his dying.
