You can do as much as you think you can,
But you’ll never accomplish more;
If you’re afraid of yourself, young man,
There’s little for you in store.
For failure comes from the inside first,
It’s there, if we only knew it,
And you can win, though you face the worst,
If you feel that you’re going to do it.
–Excerpt from “The Secret of the Ages” (1926)

I know I’ve been talking about self-defense – which is essential for every woman to know from a young age.
Hit hard, hit fast, hit often’ and the attacker is likely to leave and look for an easier target.
There are different things you can do when faced when an assailant of either the same size as you or a greater size. There are different responses to different attacks and you should never retaliate with more force needed (ie, do not strike a killing blow for a pat on the bum).
You all know about hitting a person’s nose (you can chop it or punch it with a close fist) and the blood will disorient them enough for a run. Don’t sit and fight ladies!
If you are already in close to an assailant, this is an excellent target.
DO NOT step in close to hit at the nose if you are out of fist-hitting range!
WONDER IS A blasting cap. It is an emotion that goes off with a bang, shattering settled beliefs, rattling the architecture of the mind, and clearing space for new ideas, new possibilities. Wonder is often thought of as a peaceful emotion, a sense of resounding inner quiet. Of course we would associate it with silence. The world always assumes an eerie hush after an explosion.
Awe is TNT for the soul.
Whatever your sexual orientation, whatever your ethnicity, whatever your age or personal experiences, it is my hope you will find a hero somewhere here you can relate to, that speaks to the world as you see it.

Using a credit card to work up a huge debt is probably the easiest thing a young adult can do. Reasons unknown, all of us feel more comfortable handling a credit card than handling cash.
High credit card debt results in heavy and perpetual losses until the debt is nullified, because the interest rates on credit card debt are unusually higher than normal loans.

Keeping in mind the interest rates transfer you balances to the lowest rate card where you might get a 0% or lowest possible rate or some period of time.
Bad credit stands for poor credit rating in any type of loan facility. Poor credit history can always reject the borrower to have loan facility in any point of time when it comes to the part of conservative lenders such as banks.
But in these days bad credit is no more creating any overwhelming trouble for the people in borrowing money because many lending institutions come forward with various loan facilities even with bad credit so that you don’t need to make any pledge any type of asset as collateral security for your loan.
Taking bad credit facility you just have to pay off loan with higher interest rate than the borrower having good credit loan facility as from the part of lenders giving loan with bad credit is always more risky than with good credit.
