Why do people succeed? Is it because they’re smart? Or are they just lucky? Neither. Analyst Richard St. John condenses years of interviews into an unmissable 3-minute slideshow on the real secrets of success.
Multiplying by 11
Up to 9×11: just repeat the digit (Example: 4×11 = 44)
For 10×11 to 18×11: write the sum of the digits between the digits
Example: 15×11 = 1(1+5)5 = 165
Note: this works for any two-digit number, but when the sum of the digits is more than 9, we need to”carry the one”. Example: 75×11 = 7(7+5)5 = 7(12)5 = 825.
When you start wondering what you want out of life, there are no limits, you can dream about anything.
You get this great feeling of satisfaction just by imagining what you can achieve, the possibilities are endless and it’s so encouraging for a while…
But then, reality sets in, you know that those dreams are far away from seeing daylight. You start to feel like they’re impossible to achieve and unreachable.
That’s why they say “Dream big, but work small”, that’s exactly one point Mark Twain is trying to make.
You should actually dream big, but realize that the way to make those dreams happen is: to break them down in achievable small tasks that put together, will make you achieve that dream trough time.
Dream all you want, but if you don’t start to do something to achieve those dreams, they will remain dreams forever.

Positive parenting tips for teenagers:
Show interest in your teen’s school and extracurricular interests and activities and encourage him to become involved in activities such as sports, music, theatre, and art. Compliment your teen and celebrate his efforts and accomplishments. Respect your teen’s opinion. Listen to her without playing down her concerns. Encourage your teen to develop solutions to problems or conflicts. Help your teenager learn to make good decisions. Create opportunities for him to use his own judgment, and be available for advice and support. If your teen engages in interactive internet media such as games, chat rooms, and instant messaging, encourage her to make good decisions about what she posts and the amount of time she spends on these activities.
