  • Topic of this Week: "PUNISHMENT (March 17, 2019)"

    People have devised many kinds of punishment so far. Punishment is often used to make a person suffer for what they have done wrong; it also helps deters other people from committing the same crime or mistakes. In many situations, however, people notice the physical punishment only. For example, managers take away a part of salary from their employees for low sales record or students are detained after school for violating the school regulations. I myself noticed many cases where mental punishment really left relationships prone to break-up. From my point of view, though seeming temporarily effective, both physical punishment and mental punishment are devastating in the long run.

    IS IT TIME FOR A CHANGE? (February 24, 2019)

    (22:21:28 PM 22/02/2019)

    We’re all driven by dreams and ambitions. However, while pursuing our aspirations, it can be difficult to figure out when to keep going with same path and when to take a different route or to change. There are plenty of joyful changes we seek in life: new houses, new cars ….but for most cases, change represents uncertainty, insecurity and worry. 
    Most of us want to change as much as we are afraid of it. We say things like, I'm sick of working in this company, but I have no idea what else I would do. I want to set up my own business, but I have never taken any action. 
    Change is part of life. And whether you like it or not, it's going to take place with or without your approval. It could be something tiny or something big. When we resist change, there is nothing abnormal because it is your nature to be secured in comfort zone. Whether it's planned or unplanned change, we are being asked to look into it and consider what direction really matters most. 
    Let’s come to Advance and discover more this week!!! 


    QUESTIONS TO PONDER:  
    1. What are the important changes in life? 
    2. Is change good or bad? Why do many people resist change while others change so much?  3. What are the signs for a change in your life?  
    4. How to prepare for a planned change? To cope with an unplanned change?  
    5. “When we make a change means we are not resilient enough”. What do you think about this saying? 

     

    Enjoy and have a fruitful discussion!
