It’s that time of the year again. It’s Christmas time and I’m sure many of you don’t know what to get him/her for Christmas. That’s why I have created a top 5 gift list. The value of the gift should be proportionate to the seriousness of the relationship. Please don’t go all out for someone you just started dating.
You can never go wrong with an elegant watch for him and her. Men love Diesel and Michael Kors, whereas women prefer Fossil, Swatch, and Michael Kors (Michael Kors is manufactured by Fossil just FYI). Stay away from too much bling and gaudy looking versions. Less is sometimes more 🙂
2. Fashion Show Tickets
One of the best Fashion Shows coming up in 2015 is The Pin Show. Make sure you get at least two VIP tickets! The Creme de la Creme of the Fashion Industry is always in attendance and it’s simply a great alternative for a date or girls night.
One of my favorite online boutiques is Asos.com, make sure you go through his/her closet before ordering anything, that’s the safest way to learn what size your loved one wears without spilling the beans. Stay away from buying jeans and pants, sizes vary too much depending on brand and behind. The safest things to buy are tops and shoes.
4. Spa Day
Whether it’s a couple’s or single’s spa day. Everyone can use a moment of relaxation in their life. Groupon and Living Social have great deals!
5. Bluetooth Headphones
They are not only the best workout headphones but also make listening to music while traveling or on the go more convenient. Annoying wires belong to the past. To find out the best ones for your needs and wallet read Cnet‘s review about the best Bluetooth Headphones on the market right now.
Sounds crazy right? But essentially it looks like if you haven’t failed you won’t ever succeed. I have been reading biographies of the most successful people of our time. I am talking about Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs (R.I.P.), J.K. Rowling, Jerry Jones, Vera Wang, and Bill Gates. One thing they all had in common was FAILURE!!!
Oprah was fired from a TV station because they saw her un-fit as an anchor, Steve Jobs was fired from the company he co-founded, J.K. Rowling hit rock bottom as a single mom living off welfare, Jerry Jones had various failed business ventures, Vera Wang didn’t make the Olympic Ice-Skating Team and was later on passed over as chief-editor for Vogue, Bill Gates is a college drop out and the first Microsoft Product was an epic fail.
Despite all the challenges and adversary they faced, never gave up but instead created their own opportunities. Oprah owns a media empire now and is worth $2.9 Billion. Steve jobs was re-hired by Apple as they realized that he was the driving innovative spirit of the company. It is thanks to him that Apple has become a lifestyle “It-Brand” breaking any barriers of age, culture, and socio-economic background. J.K. Rowing became the first billionaire author after writing 7 Harry Potter books. Jerry Jones not only owns America’s Team The Dallas Cowboys but also runs a very successful oil and gas company. Vera Wang started designing wedding gowns at the age of 40 and is now one of the most renowned designers of the fashion industry worth $1 Billion. Bill Gates is worth $72 Billion and Microsoft became the largest personal-computer software company in the world.
What I would like for you to get from this blog post is, that failure is not the end of the world. Don’t stay paralyzed in self doubt about your vision after you have encountered failure. Take key learning from it, analyze it, process it, optimize it and continue working hard to accomplish your dreams. See your failures as a step closer to your BREAKTHROUGH!!!
