Florida Tourist Attractions – Islands of Adventure, Orlando

Considered by some to be the best theme park in Orlando, Islands of Adventure has better characters than Magic Kingdom, better attractions than Universal Studios, better food than Holy Land, and better architecture than Gaudi’s cathedral in Spain. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but just wait until you get on that Spider-Man ride.

Island of Adventure is the sister park to Universal Studios Florida, and most of the information, including admission prices, is identical. However, Guest Services (407-224-6350), masquerading as the Open Arms Motel, does not exchange foreign currency. Lost & Found can be reached at (407-224-4245) or by calling them directly.

Some of the rides include:

Marvel superhero island

This is a thrill-seeker’s paradise, with 2 of Florida’s most unforgettable attractions. Heroes and comic book characters patrol this area, so keep an eye out for your favorites.

The amazing adventures of spider man

After the space shuttle, this trip may be the best thing in Florida. Quickly jump on the combination of roller coaster and motion simulator: Spider-Man needs you now! Cutting-edge 3D-rendered supervillains are on the loose (jumping on your car and chasing you with giant electrical plugs), and it’s up to you and your favorite web-slinger to stop them. I don’t want to give too much away, so I know this is a spectacular experience. Must be at least 40 inches tall and children under 48 inches must be accompanied by an adult.

Doctor Doom’s Fall of Fear

This is less scary than it sounds, which is great for timid people but a bummer for adrenaline junkies. You’ll be shot up into the air, which will take your breath away, and then it will drop you, but gently and not far.

Incredible Hulk roller coaster

One of those coasters with a surprise twist, that could turn you into the green Hulk if you just got eaten! Watch out for that first hill, Dr. Baxter!

Storm Force Acelatron

Another barf-o-rama, this one with Walt Disney World’s Mad Tea Party, only in the dark. Good luck keeping your last meal.

lagoon toon

Continuing the theme of superhero comics, old cartoons come to life here with impromptu shows, mid-games, and a truly dreary water ride. There is something indescribable about seeing Popeye making a move on the streets.

Dudley Do-Right Ripsaw Falls

The confused Canadian Mounted has his hands full keeping logs packed with tourists from hurtling over the edge of, oh no, a massive waterfall! Be warned: you’ll get soaked on this boat ride, which probably has the best design of anything.

Experience it yourself in Florida!

Uniting the economies of Northern Europe

historical perspectives

Northern Europe, including Sweden-Finland, Denmark-Norway, and parts of Germany, Poland, and Russia, was a volatile region during the 16th and 17th centuries and part of the 18th century with regular conflicts between the countries. The struggle for territorial power was both defensive and aggressive, leading to frequent border adjustments. During the Kalmar Union, Denmark was powerful until Sweden seceded from it in the early 16th century with the help of the powerful Hanseatic city of Lübeck. After the bloodshed of Stockholm, aggression towards Denmark increased, but Denmark continued to dominate until 1640 when, in 1650, it almost collapsed had it not been for the interference of the Netherlands which prevented Sweden from gaining power on both sides of the strait. from Öresund. As a result of its heavy debt to Lübeck, Sweden lost almost all Western export rights to the Hansa league. Denmark lost territorially and Sweden annexed Scania, Halland, Blekinge and the island of Gotland.

modern times

Since the early 18th century, a mutual understanding between Denmark and Sweden has prevailed, and in the late 1980s the governments of both countries expressed interest in a fixed connection over the Öresund Strait. The almost 16 km long bridge, including a tunnel section, was completed in 5 years in 2000. It now carries the E20 motorway and a rail system that allows some 34 million people to cross the straight annually. Some 18,000 people cross the bridge daily to work and by 2007 11,000 Swedes had found work in Denmark while 25,000 Danes settled in Sweden. As a result, labor and housing markets were boosted and a strong infrastructure was built.

The Öresund region consisting of the eastern parts of Denmark (including Copenhagen) and the southern parts of Sweden (Scania, including Malmö and Lund) has grown to become one of the most dynamic regions in Europe with 12 universities, 155,000 students and 12,000 researchers. It is said to be the most integrated transnational area in Scandinavia, where a quarter of the GNP of both countries is produced. It is particularly strong in biotech and IT and is able to attract many international corporations (and scientists) who are now based in this region. Interestingly, Malmö claims to be the “fourth most inventive city in the world” measured in terms of patents filed per 10,000 inhabitants. One of Europe’s leading binational life sciences clusters, Medicon Valley spans the entire region fostering research cooperation between companies and scientists.

ruling the region

A special Öresund committee made up of members of regional politicians and authorities from both countries coordinates the affairs of the region with the aim of creating a region where the inhabitants can freely choose where to live, work or study. Decisions are made independently in both countries due to legislative differences between the countries. For Scanian officials, the development of the collaboration on Öresund is one of the most important issues.

The future of the region

The Öresund region is described as the “Dynamic Metropolis” by the year 2020 with 6 growth platforms (Food, IT, Biotech, Logistics, Design, Environment) which by the year 2070 may have generated 500,000 new jobs and a comparable logistics. The area would offer quality of life, development, effective use of resources, sustainable urban planning and energy sufficiency. To achieve this considerable effort is proposed in many areas including education, logistics, integration of labor markets and social order. This high-growth region is likely to attract investment against rising real estate values ​​and overall growth.

What has come of all this?

• An area historically devastated by war has become a vibrant binational metropolitan area.
• This area is home to one of Europe’s leading high-tech life sciences clusters.
• The growth and improvement of the quality of life attract foreign scientists and companies that contribute to increasing the innovative image of the area.
• The inhabitants have a greater margin of choice regarding their personal life.

The Öresund region has become a licensed growth region in the European context.

Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett – Estate Plan Wake-Up Call

Following the sad and tragic deaths of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett, we are all reminded of how fragile our lives can be and how quickly things can change. The death of these two iconic figures should be a call for many to get their estate plan in order. It should be noted that the reality is that most people die without a will in our country. Some really smart and famous people, Abraham Lincoln, Howard Hughes, and Pablo Picasso, die without taking the time to draw up a will.

Many of us procrastinate, downplay our personal need or the legal importance of drafting wills, trusts, living wills, and durable powers of attorney. The complexities of combining and coordinating diverse assets, such as individual assets, jointly owned assets, retirement plans, life insurance, annuities, and business interests, seem too daunting for some. For others, they don’t realize the importance of seeing all of their assets from a big picture perspective; that is, when all is said and done, who ends up with what. Is the division of assets fair and equitable for all concerned after payment of taxes, debts, and estate administration costs?

For many, the untimely death of Michael Jackson has raised these and many other estate planning issues. At this time, no one knows if he had a will and/or a trust for his children, or if his estate plan was current. But by looking at his situation (and speculating a bit), some important estate planning considerations for the rest of us can be explored:

Guardianship: It is unclear what provisions Mr. Jackson had in his will (assuming there is a valid will) for his children. The first word from the media is that this will be a messy court battle over the issue of guardianship of his children, even if his will indicates his preference for guardianship. Even if contested, the appointment of guardian in a will would still be a very important factor in any legal challenge and in any event it is always wise to state the wishes of the guardian. The object lesson is clear: Parents with young children must clearly see the need for a will indicating their choice of guardian for their children.

Trusts: No one knows if Mr. Jackson had established trusts for his children. Although it appears that his estate is now insolvent, this situation will likely change with post-mortem sales of his music someday providing assets and wealth for his children (think post-mortem income from Elvis’s estate). Presley). Hopefully, he established trusts that will protect and manage his assets. To increase the chances of becoming competent adults, he may have drafted provisions in his trust in a way that develops his sense of personal initiative and responsibility and still meets his basic needs. Experienced estate planning attorneys explore this type of forward planning when it comes to dealing with children and their anticipated needs if parents die prematurely.

Specific legacies: The media has speculated that a large part of his estate (his rights to Beatles songs) was donated to Paul McCartney. This generosity may be commendable, but from an estate planning perspective, this legacy can pose problems. First, if your estate is indeed insolvent, this legacy asset would not be available for your estate to be sold and the proceeds used to pay off the estate’s debts and/or benefit your children. Second, in general, bequests such as these are often given in ways that do not generate estate taxes. This could distort the way assets are divided among beneficiaries. The point here is that this bequest may have made sense when the will was originally drawn up when Mr. Jackson was wealthy, but this bequest could be quite problematic in the current situation. The lesson here is that an estate plan should be reviewed periodically as family needs and financial situations change over time.

Special Needs Trusts: Farrah Fawcett died leaving behind a son who is in jail with addiction problems. Issues for people with children with special needs are often downplayed, overlooked, or not fully considered. As her only daughter, did she leave all her wealth to her son? Did his will of hers provide that he would receive her inheritance upon her death or did he provide a trust for her benefit? If she set up a trust, what kinds of provisions and conditions did she make to provide benefits to you? These difficult questions arise not only for children with addiction problems, but also for children with cognitive deficits, physical disabilities, and emotional problems. Also, special needs trusts may be necessary when children receive public assistance from state and local governments.

The bottom line: Protect your family and protect your hard-earned wealth. Take time to plan your affairs with an experienced estate planning attorney. Remember, if you die without a will or trust, your state’s intestate laws will control who gets your assets and how they get your assets. When it comes to young children, courts generally place children’s estates in trust according to what the judge deems appropriate. In addition, the judge will determine who will be the trustee of any trust placed on your children and will determine who should be the guardian of your children. These and other important considerations should be determined by you and not by a court of law, so do it and do it now so you don’t leave problems like the ones Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett may have left behind.

Since it is a large-scale expense, party planners provide discounts on expenses and thus make it easier on your pocket.

• Arrangements for the cake – Since the cake is one of the main attractions at a child’s birthday party, it should be something that is according to your child’s choice.

find the fugitive

You have your homework. In your hands you have a photo of your skip, arrest warrants, address list and friends and family. If you are an employee, you know what you will be paid. If you are working for yourself, like I am, have some sort of agreement with the bondsman on how much you will be paid. Bonus percentage may vary from state to state. Find out what the current rate is in your area. You can earn between 6 and 10% of the bonus amount. You can agree to get miles and hotel depending on how far you go.

Whats Next?

It will eventually develop its own methods, but for now this is what I like to do. Sure, computers can give you a lot of data, but eventually you’ll hit the streets. Just remember that most people continue to do what they’ve always done, even if they’re wanted! That’s bad for them but good for you. So, before you leave the bail bondsman’s office, try to gather as much information about the clothing as you can. Does your person drink, smoke, gamble, go to clubs, etc. Is there a spouse? Get along? There are kids? Where they live? What school do they attend? What car do you drive with license plate number? Is your person known to become violent? You can check with your jail to verify that you have all warrants and any special things to worry about. I prefer to do it in person.

Eventually your own questions will occur to you.

Now, check the area where your fugitive lived, last worked, etc. Get to know your person thoroughly! You are in his old area. How is your car? Where do friends and family live? If possible, I like to watch from far enough away so I can see what’s going on and not give away my position. Make sure your car is similar to other vehicles in that area so you can go unnoticed. One last orientation. This doesn’t happen often, but it could keep you out of jail.

Find out if your person has possibly been arrested by another county. Sometimes he may not know it until he is about to take down the fugitive. The person may or may not tell you about an ankle band he is wearing as a result of being homebound. Keep in mind that these people can usually go from home to work and back. Should this situation arise, perform further checks. But, for now do not handcuff your person! The guy can tell you. So remember that if something feels too easy or wrong, wait and investigate further. That extra time can keep you out of jail!

What do you plan to do when you see your jump? Plan that. What if friends are close? Will they help him or will they escape? Am I going to kick the door of a house? Just so you know, I’ve never done that, but my friends in the business have. I just don’t want to run into a surprise in the tight spaces of a home. Therefore, I try to create a situation that is the best for me or for my team. So basically, if certain situations come up and you and your people are in a position, then go for it.

I try to tell people that if something can go wrong, it definitely will. If you have to follow your person, then do it. Get some sort of gut feeling of where you might be going. Where could his arrest fall? Gas station, supermarket? I prefer everything to go as smoothly as possible and quietly so as not to create a scene. Often I walk up to my person and stand next to him and tell him why I’m there and how I expect things to go. We can make this easy or hard. The decision is entirely up to him. Either way, I’m ready. If I’m standing there talking to him, the arrest is within the next 60 seconds. I won’t give you time to find a way out. He is not my best friend. Going to prison feeds my family. The more you hesitate, the higher the chances that you will get hurt! So do it and get out of there.

What if you don’t see your jump? I like to go to areas where I am known to frequent. I’ll show your photo to people and ask if they’ve seen it. If not, move down the path a bit on either side. When you get a yes, ask about a vehicle, what he was doing, buying something, etc. Was he alone or with someone? Now is the time for you to listen well! If they describe the correct vehicle, friends, purchases, etc., then it was possibly there. When was it seen? Many people want you to believe that they have actually seen you jump when in fact they have not. It will be up to you to examine the garbage. So, I hope you know where your person goes and what times of the day and who is with him. Basically, you become that person long enough to catch him and go to jail in the county where he jumped bail.

If you’re going to another state, I suggest you check that state’s rules regarding out-of-state fugitive recovery agents. Since my future is at stake, I check it out myself! I don’t just take what people tell me as the truth. If you do something wrong, guess who ends up in jail?

Ten tips for intercultural communication

Here are some simple tips to help you improve your cross-cultural communication skills:

Slow down: Even when English is the common language in a cross-cultural situation, this does not mean that you should speak at normal speed. Slow down, speak clearly and make sure your pronunciation is intelligible.

Separate questions: Try not to ask double questions like “Do you want to continue or do we stop here?” In such a situation, it is possible that only the first or second question was understood. Let your listener answer one question at a time.

Avoid negative questions: Many misunderstandings in communication have been caused by the use of negative questions and answers. In English we answer ‘yes’ if the answer is affirmative and ‘no’ if it is negative. In other cultures, a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ can only indicate whether the questioner is right or wrong. For example, the response to “Aren’t you coming?” it can be ‘yes’, which means ‘Yes, I’m not going’.

Take Turns: Cross-cultural communication is enhanced by taking turns speaking, making a point, and then listening to the response.

Write it down: If you’re not sure if you understood something, write it down and check it. This can be useful when using large numbers. For example, a billion in the US is 1,000,000,000,000 while in the UK it is 1,000,000,000.

Be supportive: Effective cross-cultural communication is, at its core, about being comfortable. Giving encouragement to those with weak English gives them trust, support and confidence in you.

Check meanings: When communicating across cultures, never assume the other party has understood. Be an active listener. Summarize what was said to prove it. This is a very effective way of ensuring that accurate cross-cultural communication has occurred.

Avoid Jargon – Even the most educated foreigner will not have a complete grasp of jargon, idioms, and sayings. The danger is that the words are understood but the meaning is lost.

Beware of humor: In many business cultures it is taken very seriously. Professionalism and protocol are constantly observed. Many cultures will not appreciate the use of humor and jokes in a business context. When using humor, think about whether it will be understood in the other culture. For example, British sarcasm often has a negative effect abroad.

Keep the etiquette: Many cultures have a certain etiquette when communicating. It is always a good idea to do some cultural awareness training or at least do some research on the target culture.

Intercultural communication is about dealing with people from other cultures in a way that minimizes misunderstandings and maximizes your potential to create strong relationships. The tips above should be seen as a starting point for greater cultural awareness.

Fourth industrial revolution: what, why, when and how?

Although it is considered an improvement of the third industrial revolution, it is in particular a fusion of technologies; a solid, promising, prosperous, visionary and completely different revolution coming soon!

The First Industrial Revolution arose to mechanize production using water and steam, while the Second Industrial Revolution began to create mass production. Automated production using electronics and information technology was the mission of the Third. The transformation that is coming cannot be considered as an extension of the Third Industrial Revolution due to its disruptive propagation, exponential evolution and vertiginous transformation without historical precedents.

What is the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

We are on the brink of technological innovation; has changed; a surreal transformation! According to the founder and CEO of the World Economic Forum (WEF), Klaus Schwab, as a “technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work and relate to each other.” The upcoming and long-awaited Fourth Industrial Revolution combines digital, biological and physical systems and will propagate a new interaction between humans and machines. Based on the first three industrial revolutions, this will demonstrate the rapid speed of technological progress by merging its limits.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will rule the Fourth Industrial Revolution!

Technological innovation will be the best and the most promising of this phase of the Industrial Revolution. Driverless cars, smart robotics, 3D printing, autonomous vehicles, nanotechnology, biotechnology, digital manufacturing, synthetic biology, computational design, energy storage, quantum computing and the Internet of Things will be the milestones of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. A World Economic Forum article by Nicholas Davis, director of Society and Innovation, says that, “depending on the technologies and infrastructure of the third industrial revolution … they represent completely new ways in which technology is integrated into societies. and even in our human bodies. Ways include genome editing, new forms of artificial intelligence, and innovative approaches to governance that rely on cryptographic methods like blockchain.”

Why is there so much talk about the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

Because there are great opportunities and serious challenges!

Skills will dominate the job market!

One of the largest and most direct impacts of the Fourth Industrial Revolution will be felt in the labor market. The increasing technological invasion will lead to a large part of job losses, especially for low-skilled jobs. There will be a high demand for highly qualified jobs. It will definitely have smart encoders for driverless cars, won’t it? According to economists Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee, there will be an increase in inequality in the labor market. Greater technological automation will lead to the net displacement of workers and, subsequently, to an increase in the growth and demand for safe and rewarding jobs. Oxfam estimated that just 62 people own as much as the poorest half of the world’s population, with the wealth of the bottom 50 percent falling 41 percent since 2010. A report by Swiss bank UBS said the spread of AI and Robotics will hurt economies like India and some Latin American countries by reducing their cheap labor advantage. Previously, Oxford researchers had estimated that 35 per cent of workers in the UK and 47 per cent in the US may lose their tech jobs over the next two decades. Therefore, the labor market will be like this: “high skill-high demand-high pay” and “low skill-low demand-low pay.” In other words, talent will acquire a greater space and will be much more in demand in the labor market than capital during the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Improvise quality of life

Technology has improved the quality of life of populations since its inception. The availability of new products, easier access to the market, greater efficiency and pleasure of personal life, and an affordable digital world lie ahead. From high-end crucial daily requirements like making a transaction, buying a product to casual personal needs like listening to music or watching a movie; It will be done remotely and easily. In fact, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will result in a qualitative transformation in people’s lives.

Tremendous gain in efficiency and productivity

It goes without saying that automation and technological innovation will bring about a miracle in terms of efficiency and productivity. Long-term profits are assured. The fall in transportation and communication costs, the greater effectiveness of logistics and global supply chains and the reduction in the cost of trade will drive economic growth and encourage the opening of new markets. Today it is easier to conduct business with fewer workers than it was half a century ago. A business can make good money with a smart app with minimal capital requirement and foregoing warehousing, logistics, and transportation charges. Explaining in terms of economic jargon, the marginal costs per unit of production will tend to zero and the return on investment will be on the higher side; steeply higher!

Impact on the Business World; It can be a reliable promise as well as a fatal danger!

However, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will mark a great impact on the business world. Development and prosperity will rest on four platforms: customer expectations, product improvement, collaborative innovation, and organizational forms. Customers will be the epicenter of the business. Greater digital transparency in the business sector will lead to a major change in the world of customer experiences, data-driven services and asset performance. The emergence of new global niches and business models will definitely necessitate a makeover and retouching of existing talent, culture and organizational forms. Business leaders must understand their changing environment, challenge the assumptions of their operational teams, and constantly and continuously innovate to stay in the changing league.

Serious challenge ahead for governments

What will happen if citizens express their opinions and circumvent the work of the government? A serious approach towards public participation and policy making must be initiated! And this is what is going to happen very soon in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The rapid digitization will allow citizens to have a greater say in the work of the government, which will put more pressure on the latter due to the redistribution and decentralization of power. Agile governance is the need of the hour. To do so, governments and regulatory agencies will need to work closely with business and civil society. Technology may increase the risk of new war-related fears at the same time that it will also create the potential to reduce the scale or impact of violence, through the development of new modes of protection, for example, or greater precision in objectives.

The female mass will have a prominent role in this revolution

The negative effect on the labor market can have a disproportionately negative impact on women than on men. However, with the increase in the pool of talented women, the proportion of women expected to progress to middle and higher positions by 2020 will increase by nearly 10%. Job loss due to the automation of technology will affect women and men relatively equally. However, the fact that women make up a smaller proportion of the workforce means that the current economic gender gap may widen further. According to The Industry Gender Gap Report, “The media, entertainment and information sector is the only one that will see a reduction in the number of women in the next five years, and the female composition is expected to decrease at all levels of employment. job, from 47% to 46% However, even here, women can expect to see more opportunities, as the proportion of women in mid- and senior-level jobs is expected to rise from 25% in each to 32 % and 33% respectively”.

When will the beginning of the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

Based on the Third Industrial Revolution, the fourth is waiting for a great disruptor to mark its beginning. Many instabilities and unpredictability are associated with the start of this new digital revolution. A possible change in the Smartphone industry or any new technological innovation that destroys the current technical aspects will mark the beginning of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. An invention that will “robotize” humanity will mark the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

How will the Fourth Industrial Revolution affect India?

  • It will affect the cheap and unskilled labor market in India. According to a UBS report, “Automation will continue to put downward pressure on the wages of low-skilled workers and is starting to affect the employment prospects of middle-skilled workers. By contrast, the potential benefits for high-skilled workers skilled and more adaptable are growing.”
  • There will be a need to upskill and invest heavily in training initiatives. “However, the greatest disruption could be experienced by workers who have hitherto felt immune to robotic competition, namely those in mid-skilled professions,” says the UBS report.
  • Indian governance will face a big challenge to work with dynamic data in real time. However, there will be an increase in transparency, especially in notoriously opaque sectors such as real estate. There will be use of eWallets instead of cash.
  • The induction of 4G connectivity will enable Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) for young people from small towns and villages and help market agricultural products at the right price.
  • There may also be a potential side effect of increased connectivity. “Connectivity increases the risks posed by cyber threats, and the magnitude of these threats increases further as a result of networks becoming more connected. Extreme connectivity also fuels geopolitical tensions as it increases the ability of various groups to organize and protest,” said UBS. .
  • The 3D printing era will increase India’s investment in space research. 3D printing can help build space satellites easily.
  • A progressive tax regime will yield equity.

6 ways to deal with a bad husband

My husband is a good, kind and loving man. He takes care of her responsibilities, plays with our daughter and is a good father to her. He is a good husband to me too. However, lately he’s been on a nasty losing streak which I think arose as a result of financial pressure. We both made the decision to quit our full-time jobs to run businesses in pursuit of a better life for ourselves and our daughter. Our marriage has also been solid until recently.

He started acting irrational, getting mad at me for staying home when I got sick, so I decided not to rest anymore and go to work. Apparently his medical practice is now my problem, he hired someone who he told he could start work at 10. Two mornings ago when I had a terrible flu I thought I could spend the day in bed medicated. I dropped our daughter off at daycare and came home. He was in bed. I woke him up and asked him if he wasn’t going to work. He asked me what time it was and I told him it was almost nine. Suddenly he gets out of bed, starts yelling at me that we can’t play with practice, and acts like a complete idiot. He then drives like an idiot and when I ask him why he was driving that way, he says “personal reasons”. Really? Are you saying “what…”? Good.

I ignored him for the rest of the day. The next day he tried to talk to me like nothing was wrong and I wasn’t having it. So he decided to do the same to me. He likes to play that game. Usually I am the one who brings peace. Not this time. I went to his office and told him to go away. Then I went out.

Now that may not have been the best way to handle things, but I was sick of his crap. Oh, and by the way, when I told him that I should consider his behavior, he tells me “that’s silly what you just said”. I know well, who does this guy think he is? He is not the good, warm-hearted man I married, that’s for sure. Anyway, I decided I’m tired of him, but for someone to change, you have to be the change you want to see. So here are six ways I’m approaching the situation.

1. Communicate

It’s challenging but it’s one of the foundations of marriage. You will need to communicate how you feel and make it clear that the behavior is not acceptable to you. Once you have communicated this, take a stand. Don’t just say you won’t tolerate it and then do nothing. It is sure to happen again and when it does, it is important that you maintain your position that you will not accept it. If you reacted by yelling, criticizing, arguing, or worse yet, walking away, you will need to react differently after communicating your disdain.

2. Be the change you want to see

Most people learn by what they see. If my husband acts like an idiot and I go crazy, he will not learn anything valuable and his rotten behavior will continue. The best way to get him to change is to continue to be a good wife and when he acts like a jerk I just tell him “I’m not doing this to you” and walk away. I have now disarmed the situation. Why? He wants a war, but he will have to fight it alone. That’s not fun now, is it?! Then he will realize that he has to take a different approach. Bingo!

3. Control your watch face

Although there are two people in a marriage, the key here is that there are two people. Each of the two is an individual. Most of us women tend to give so much of ourselves that we lose who we are as individuals. Yes, a wife is supposed to take care of her husband, her family and her home. That doesn’t mean she should stop looking out for her own interests. I believe that a woman is the glue that holds a family together. That is a huge responsibility and it requires you to be mentally and physically fit. She finds peace and contentment by doing things that satisfy you inside. We act and react based on what happens inside us. If we take care of the interior, the exterior will do the same. So go ahead, date the girls, get your nails done, take that business course, whatever makes you happy.

4. Be more of a giver than a taker

My husband is smart enough to know when he has done something wrong. Most men actually are. However, how you react as his wife is very important. I know when you’re mad at someone the last thing you want to do is be nice to them, but that’s exactly what they expect. Instead, do the opposite of what they expect. The praise, the service, the good treatment in general will not be in vain but it must be genuine. You will have to work through the feelings of anger and resentment. You will need to find that inner strength and peace to accept that this man is only human. He has his virtues and his faults. His virtues far outweigh his defects and you will have to motivate him to bring out those virtues. Be nice to him, he’ll come around. Give and you will receive.

5. Do not focus on the problem

Have you ever heard of the saying “make a mountain out of an anthill”? Well, a person who is emotionally abusing you is no joke, but in order to remedy the situation you need to divert your attention from the problem and focus on solutions to the problem. This takes the burden of feeling down and gives you the strength to stay happy and helps you enthusiastically implement solutions.

6. Be prepared

Now I understand that people differ. My situation is still salvageable, but there are situations where that might not be the case. I have prepared myself for the fact that my husband may change, may not change, or even get worse. Either way, I’m prepared to face the consequences. At least I know I did my part. If it works, yay! If not, then maybe it wasn’t meant to be. Either way I’ll be happy knowing I did my best. You have to be prepared for positive or negative results.
