Empowerment Tips
 
Become a Magnet of Positivity
 
How do some people manage to say so positive all the time? How do some people face adversity with a smile and happily blaze through it? These are both questions that we have all had. With that being said, here are some of the top ways to become a positivity magnet:
 
Like Attracts Like
What you consistently think is what you will become. Your thoughts will create your reality. You want to have a more positive life? Start with conditioning yourself to have more positive thoughts. 
 
The Habit of Positivity
Positivity, like most other things, is a habit. You are what you repeatedly do. Practice regular acts of positivity throughout your day so that you can become more and more effortless with being positive.
 
It's Contagious
Have you ever been around someone that was so happy it was almost contagious? That's because it is. Happiness and positivity are actually contagious and can directly affect the people around you. Surround yourself with positive people and you will see yourself becoming instantly more positive.
 
The Ripple Effect
The more positive you become, the better things get. It's just the truth. You will see positivity ripple to the people around you, your relationships, your health, and even your career. Positivity really does have the best side effects!
 
Use these tools to become overall a more positive individual. Every single part of your life will shift for the better. You will grow professionally, your energy will double, and you will attract amazing people into your life. Make positivity a priority and change your life today.

"The United Nations General Assembly is likely to pass a draft resolution that declares September 30 as International Translation Day, recognizing the role of professional translation in connecting nations."
 
Our colleague from the US, Matthew Kushinka, wrote a brilliant article on translation rates, a subject that has been taboo for many. He generously allowed us to share it.
 
In translation, the rates are directly related to the level of quality.
 
Regretfully, many clients are not able to identify issues and avoid the costly and risky mistakes until it is too late.  This article is worth reading for those involved in the translation process.
