Why should anyone think of fighting battles in the area of marriage?...Is there anything spiritual about marriage?...Is marriage not a mere union between a man and a woman? Good questions! Marriage is more than a union. There is more that meets the eye when a man who comes from his own background decides to be joined in wedlock with a lady who comes from another background. Beloved, your marriage rises or falls on your ancestry. Unknown to many people, the extent they will go in the area of marriage has been predetermined by their ancestors. And no matter what you have achieved today, there was a day when you came to this world as a helpless infant. Though your navel, which today, has been separated from your umbilical cord may be seen as an ordinary part of the body. It should actually remind you that it was formerly the rope that tied you to your parents and by extension, your ancestors who lived hundreds of years ago. This is a deep spiritual understanding you must not ignore. Just as there is no human being without a navel, there is no man or a woman who was not formerly linked to his or her parents through the umbilical cord.

Starring Michelle Monaghan, James Marsden, Luke Bracey, and Liana Liberator "Everyone wanted to believe that endless love was possible. She'd believed in it once, too, back when she was eighteen." In the spring of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths. Now, twenty-five years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew -- about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear -- was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past?

We live in a time of rapidly changing technology and business dynamic at the dawn of the Digital Era, The knowledge life cycle is significantly shortened, and a huge skill gap in the workforce needs to be filled due to the continuously updated technology and regulation, digitalization and globalization, etc. Growth minds, new skills, or digital capabilities are needed every day. However, who are the future of digital leaders and professionals at the age of Digital? How do you define digital professionals, identify talent gaps, and improve digital professionalism both at the individual level and organizational Level? Generally speaking, a professional is an individual with the expertise of some specific area, who earns his or her livings from that expertise. Being professional also means that the individual not only has the skill but also presents the high-quality professionalism such as positive mentality and attitude, fair judgments and good behaviors, creativity and high intelligence. The book “Talent Master - 199 + Questions to See Talent from Different Angles“ is the guidebook to help digital professionals shape digital fit mindset, improve multidimensional digital intelligence, build a unique set of digital capabilities, inspire creativity, improve professionalism, and unleash their full talent potential. It is also a playbook to help digital leaders and business managers set updated digital principles to innovate talent management, performance management, acknowledgment management and culture management, to integrate them into a holistic people management solution, and leap digital transformation to the next level of maturity. Chapter 1 Digital Fit: “Digital fit” should be first defined as “mind fit.” The right mindset is an utmost quality for being a right fit because the power of the mind is the force to change the business or even the world for better, and then following with attitude fit and behavior fit. Digital contemporary fitness requires envisioning new perspectives, shaping new boxes of thinking, and building new competency. Chapter 2 Digital Intelligence: Intelligence has been defined in many different ways such as in terms of one's capacity for logic, abstract thought, understanding, self-awareness, communication, learning, emotional knowledge, memory, planning, creativity and problem solving. Whether someone is "intelligent" or not depends entirely on what you are asking them to accomplish with their brain. Digital intelligence is multidimensional and contextual, with ultimate goals to gain wisdom. Chapter 3 Digital Creativity: Creativity is the high level of intelligence. Creativity is expressive, productive, inventive, innovative and emergent. The innovators with digital creativity are simply those who can see what's around, and easily and effortlessly discover a better way to do things. Creativity is a synthesis of two qualities: imagination with which you create new ideas and the concreteness with which you can transform ideas into real work. Chapter 4 Digital Professionalism: The online dictionary defines “professionalism is the skill, good judgment, and polite behavior that is expected from a person who is trained to do a job well.” Hence, it doesn’t mean if you had a profession, you would be automatically a well-respected professional with professionalism. High professionalism is a mindset, principle, and discipline. Chapter 5 Digital Potential: Potential is about future performance, not past performance. How well do individuals continue to perform and grow in their current roles, how likely can they take on new challenges at work, rapidly learn and grow into next-level roles, or roles that are expanded and redefined as the business changes? Individuals showing potential are distinguished usually by their mastery of new roles quickly and effectively, learning more rapidly than their peers, more innovate in problem-solving. Either at individual or business level, performance helps you motiva

“Nothing happens until a sale is made.” But sales do not happen by themselves and they don’t happen regularly without an enabling context that drives organizational focus and establishes the imperatives to drive transformation. Like all transformative efforts there is no one formula for success but there are basic ingredients common across all successful efforts. We explore key elements associated with establishing the imperatives prerequisite to a marketing and sales focus in a professional services organization and using those imperatives to put in place a transformative vision that becomes a core element of the organization’s culture. Next we explore the elements of organizational focus which are essential for realizing that vision and the tools and techniques that help drive this transformation and institutionalize the marketing and sales-centric focus. Finally, we look at improving, getting the fundamentals right and addressing an ever-changing competitive landscape.
