The difference between the poor and rich nations is not the age of the nation. This can be demonstrated by countries like India and Egypt, which are more than 2000 years old and are still poor countries.
On the other hand, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, which 150 years back were insignificant, today are developed and rich countries.
The difference between the poor and rich nation does not also depend on the available natural resources. Japan has limited territory, 80% mountainous, unsuitable for agriculture or farming, but is the second in worlds economy.
The country is like an immense floating factory, importing raw material from
the whole world and exporting manufactured products.
Second example is Switzerland, it does not grow cocoa but produces the best chocolates in the world. In her small territory she rears animals and cultivates the land only for four month in a year, nevertheless manufactures the best milk products.
A small country which is an image of security which has made it the strongest world bank. Executives from rich countries who interact with their Counter parts from poor countries show no significant intellectual differences. The racial or colour factors also do not evince importance: migrants heavy in laziness in their country of origin are forcefully productive in rich European countries.
What then is the difference? The difference is the attitude of the people, moulded for many years by education and culture. When we analyse the conduct of the people from the rich and developed countries, it is observed that a majority abide by the following principles of life:
- Ethics, as basic principles.
- The respect for Laws and Regulations.
- The respect from majority of citizens by right.
- The love for work.
- The effort to save and invest.
- The will to be productive.
In the poor countries a small minority follow these basic principles in their daily life.
We are not poor because we lack natural resources or because nature was cruel towards us.
We are poor because we lack attitude. We lack the will to follow and teach these principles of working of rich and developed societies.
WE ARE IN THIS STATE BECAUSE WE WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OVER EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE.
WE ARE IN THIS STATE BECAUSE WE SEE SOMETHING DONE WRONG AND SAY – “LET IT BE”
WE SHOULD HAVE A SPIRITED MEMORY AND ATTITUDE…
ONLY THEN WILL WE BE ABLE TO CHANGE OUR PRESENT STATE.
“Mind you, if you do not forward or share this, nothing is going to happen to you. Your prized animal is not going to die, you won’t be sacked from your job, you won’t be having bad luck for seven years, nor are you going to get sick. But, if you love your COUNTRY Try and circulate this message so that as many people can reflect on this and CHANGE.”
Think about it…
Aloe Vera is a plant that has thick leaves with a gel-like substance inside of them. It’s found all over the world, and many people even grow their own. Aloe Vera gel is cooling and soothing when applied to the skin, which is why it’s sometimes used to treat burns and skin wounds.
Aloe Vera has been used for centuries for its healing properties. But it has another application besides its skin benefits: It can actually strengthen your hair and make your scalp healthier.
The best form of Aloe Vera to use on your hair is the raw gel of the plant. You can buy this gel in almost any pharmacy or scoop it out of leaves cut fresh from a live plant if you have one. The gel is clear in colour and slightly watery.
Rubbing Aloe Vera into your scalp and hair and letting it penetrate your hair follicles could condition and improve damaged, dry hair. After letting it sit for an hour, rinse the gel off with a mild shampoo.
BENEFITS FOR HAIR
Aloe Vera benefits for your hair
– Calms an itchy scalp
Seborrheic Dermatitis is the clinical term for the condition we call dandruff. The symptoms of an itchy scalp and flaking skin under your hair can be treated with Aloe Vera.
A 1998 study found that Aloe Vera helped resolve the scalp inflammation that dandruff causes. The fatty acids found in the aloe plant have anti-inflammatory properties.
– Deep cleans oily hair
Aloe Vera cleanses the hair follicle efficiently, stripping off extra sebum (oil) and residue from other hair products. But Aloe Vera doesn’t hurt your hair strands while it cleans. Unlike other chemicals in hair products, Aloe Vera is gentle and preserves the integrity of your hair.
Using Aloe Vera is a great way to get hair that looks healthier, shinier, and softer.
– Strengthens and repairs hair strands
Aloe Vera contains vitamins A, C, and E. All three of these vitamins contribute to cell turnover, promoting healthy cell growth and shiny hair. Vitamin B-12 and folic acid are also contained in Aloe Vera gel. Both of these components can keep your hair from falling out.
Aloe Vera is a popular product that people use on their skin after sun exposure. This is because of its high collagen content and cooling properties. The vitamin content in Aloe Vera suggests that it might work to repair sun damage to your hair, too.
– Promotes hair growth
Aloe Vera has the incredible ability to increase blood circulation to an area. That’s part of why its healing properties are so unique.
When you use Aloe Vera on your hair and scalp, blood flow to your scalp increases, when your scalp has been cleansed and your hair has been conditioned with Aloe Vera, you might see that hair breakage and loss slows down.
There are plenty of people who claim that Aloe Vera actually causes hair to grow much faster. But as of now, there’s little clinical evidence to prove or disprove those claims.
Risks and warnings for Aloe Vera
There’s usually little cause for concern when using Aloe Vera gel, but some people are allergic to it. Before using Aloe Vera topically, do a patch test. Rub a small bit of Aloe Vera on the inside of your wrist and wait up to two hours to see if your skin reacts poorly. This will let you know if you have an Aloe-sensitivity.
You should also be careful with topical aloe if you’re using hydrocortisone cream on your skin. Aloe Vera can increase the amount of cortisone that’s absorbed by your skin when the two are used together.

Life is like a COIN thrown up in the air. You can’t really predict which side will turn up.
NO ONE STAYS ON TOP FOREVER. IT’S JUST A MATTER OF TIME AND SEASON.
That Person you Despised/Ridiculed/Treated like shits and act like GOD over today, may have control over your Life/Career or Save your head tomorrow. NO ONE KNOWS TOMORROW!.
Treat everyone with respect and show some kindness because there will always be a tomorrow. Be good to all!
A Boss today might become a Subordinate tomorrow because there’s no permanent state in life.
ALWAYS USE YOUR POWERS AND POSITIONS CAUTIOUSLY AND FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL.
Always stand for what is right, fair and just.
Like Mugabe said: “…treat the towel with care because the same place you used in cleaning your bottom today might be the same place you will use in cleaning your face tomorrow.”
REMEMBER THIS, NO ACT OF KINDNESS IS A WASTE! OUR PRIME PURPOSE IN LIFE IS TO HELP OTHERS AND IF YOU CAN NOT HELP THEM, AT LEAST DO NOT HURT THEM!

Parents go nuts when toddlers learn to use the potty. Twenty years later, no one claps when you go to the bathroom by yourself. Gratitude looks for extraordinary and goes blind to the expected and ordinary. Daily contributions get lost and go unacknowledged in a fog of daily demands and high expectations. Many leaders believe you […]
