Are your ambitions too high?

She was born lucky, or he was born under lucky star. They are protected by angels or God's will. When people talk about successful people, they will mention high forces or higher authorities , as key of other's success. 
That is true that some people are more lucky than others, but in general nobody can't progress if he leans only on luck. Wheel of fortune is variable and cruel, so today you are businessman, tomorrow you will be beggar.

Ex Miss of Croatia, Fani Čapalija, was very successful in international event, she got fourth place at Miss World competition in 1993.  She had very stupid reply on question about representing girls in swimsuit on the stage, she just said "It's ok". She was remembered by this in South Africa. Later, she had failure marriage with football player Ivica Mornar and after that nobody heard for her. She backup from public life, even her beauty was great potential for modelling. Simply, she did not swim good in this sea of success.

Crucial question is, why some people are progressing, and others not, even odds were on their side?

Let's call this person Mister Loss.

Mister Loss will respect authorities too much. He is impressed as Croatian football team in Brasil. So, of course, they lost football match.

Mister Loss leans on good luck, but he forgot that luck is a whore. 

Mister Loss is not stable, and he is too much exposed to external influences. For example, this person will drink as Lindsay Lohan, take drugs and pills, and he will drown deeper and deeper.

Mister Loss has no patience. If success doesn't come over night, he will give up.

Mister Loss is changing strategies. Let's go this golden cow to give milk, don't change your best player too soon. While you are progressing, stick on your safe way.

Mister Loss will copy other style. That is bad step, because everybody saw this already, with better original.

Miss Fani Čapalija tried as business woman, with swimsuits line called "It's ok", as her fashion brand. It did not work out as she expected. Today she live alone with her dog and she remembers good days. Even this beautiful woman had all cards in her hands, she did not play well. 

When someone fade fast, people will say "he slept on laurels." He had everything and he thought that will last forever. When he woke up, it was already too late.

Women are not weak as they look

Where is a fight, there is love. Since childhood opposite genders tease each other, make conflicts and argue, just to compare their mental strength. Men are strong gender by nature, but many of them underestimate woman’s will and character. Some judgments define a woman as fragile, sensitive creature, and the man who is educated in the traditional family will often underestimate a woman. He will see the weak creature in the corner with a face full of tears. Well, a woman can defend herself in thousand ways. She will seduce you to obey you. She will pretend weakness just to take revenge on you if you humiliate her. Be ready for her trick as on poker table. Especially men who are used to silent, obedient woman can’t count on such resistance. Remember, the woman is the one who is working and clean house after work, carry for kids and for your laundry and your meal. Women are multi-tasking, so how can they be weak? When you fall in love with a woman who can care for herself, she doesn’t …

Are you grateful for the things you have ?

Are you grateful for the things you have in your life? I don’t think about furniture or new plates, i think about your private and professional life. Sometimes, we forget to save gratitude in our heart because our mind is too busy by dreaming about something we still did not realize. Gradation looks like this: I don’t have boyfriend. I have boyfriend but we are not married. We are married but we don’t have kids. We have only one child. Our kid is not obedient, we have problematic teenager.
In professional plan, we can use same pattern: I am studying and i don’t have job. I have job but my salary is small. I have good salary but i have no free time. I have job but my boss is dictator. It is about human nature, where all are rivals, competitors and opponents. Why your neighbor owe expensive car, and you are going at work with bus? Why your kids can’t have designers clothes? Why your friend has bigger flat then you? We are dreaming because of our ambitions. It is not bad, i am also ambiti…

Are you the hunter or the kill?

Criticism is a sensitive field. It is easy to give critics, to mock someone, but it is not easy to receive this in return and to make a joke by yourself. Do you laugh at yourself, in public? Do you allow friends to tease you, even this means that they will overrate your faults and make your values smaller? There is a thin line between social clown and person who loves to make jokes about yourself. If you are a hunter, if you respect yourself, you will allow the certain dose of criticism but you will not be a doormat. If you ask me to whom you must be grateful, maybe my answer will surprise you. Yes, i am grateful to my parents because they give me motivation, strong will, and attitude. I am grateful to my sister because she stood on my side when i felt miserable. I am grateful to my husband for accepting me as i am, even when i was the worst nightmare. Mostly, i am grateful to my rivals, to develop my strength. As i passed my initiation, faced with many troubles and get out from bigg…
