postheadericon ›› Winter Overrides ILibrary


It’s coming up to that time of year again when shops play an endless array of tracks like “Jingle Bells” and ‘Silent Night”, Christmas trees become laden with gifts thanks to your own cold hard cash, you still haven’t stuffed the turkey or sent your cards, shopping is a nightmare and you still haven’t made your New Year’s resolutions for 2012.
It’s a crazy time of year and if the idea of simply escaping it all springs to mind, you wouldn’t be the first. And after all, why not? The New Year’s resolutions can wait until you return and someone else can deal with Christmas dinner.
Well, ILibrary Is Facing The Winters And Enjoying...
On Behalf of ILibrary, We Wish you Happy Holidays.... 
We have chosen five very different winter vacations destinations that should cater for just about every taste, ranging from desert adventure to beachside bliss. These are places you can truly have a winter holiday, whether that be by embracing all that cold and snow on the icy slopes of Vancouver, getting into the Christmas spirit in New York, or surfing your Christmas Day away on Bondi Beach. 

SOME LIKE IT HOT – SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA
If you fancy the idea of a summer of fun rather than a winter of discontent, Sydney is perfect for a vacation at this time of year. Pack your shorts and bikinis for this trip, you will definitely be able to thaw out your winter body.
If you make it in time for Christmas consider heading to Bondi Beach on December 25 for what has become the quintessential way to spend Christmas Down Under. The iconic beach becomes awash with sweating Santas in board shorts and international holidaymakers who come for the communal celebrations complete with the ocean dip and plenty of fun and sun.
There are so many things to see and do in Sydney so don’t just get stuck at one of the city’s great beaches, although a trip across the harbour to Manly should be done at some point. Most tourists make for beautiful Sydney Harbour to see the bridge, opera house and the historic Rocks district. Certainly don’t miss them but there’s a lot more to Sydney than this – you can eat out on varied cuisine in Newtown, shop at the eclectic Paddington markets, experience pumping pub and bar action in King’s Cross, day trip to the beautiful Blue Mountains, or even wine taste in the Hunter Valley.
If all this activity keeps you busy right until New Year’s Eve then the best location for this is waterside in Sydney Harbour for the famous annual firework display.
Where to stay
Sydney has an array of accommodation available in areas across the city ranging from basic backpacker to high-end luxury. If you want to base at the beach you might like to try options in Manly, Bondi or Cronulla, or the fabulous Kims Beach Hideaway just out of the city at Toowoon Bay. In the city centre there are the usual options like the Hilton, Sofitel or The Westin.

PALM-FRINGED AND RELAXING – PHUKET
If you fancy going somewhere away from all the usual commercial trappings then the palm-fringed, warm and welcoming beaches of Phuket in southern Thailand might be the answer.
Thailand is a Buddhist country so Christmas celebrations are generally fairly toned down in comparison to the Western world, but the friendly Thais will still make an effort on your behalf. So if you want a Christmas dinner without having to organize it, simply book into a local restaurant and have them take care of it for you.
For the sun-seekers out there you’ll be pleased to know that there’s plenty of sunshine to enjoy at this time of year. It’s a fabulous place also to get in some shopping, massage therapy and some serious chill-out time.
Where to stay
Phuket is awash with resorts, hotels and guesthouses. It has developed a lot in recent years but, if you look hard enough, you will still find your quintessential Thai beach hut for a few dollars a night. At the other end are five-star resorts costing hundreds of dollars a night, and there is something for every budget in between. For real peace and quiet check out some of the smaller islands near Phuket. For a completely unique stay consider a sojourn at the fabulous Racha resort on Racha Yai Island, 35 minutes by boat from Phuket. You’ll feel a million miles away from everything at the Racha with white sands and turquoise waters to enjoy at the villas overlooking Batok Bay. Walk, bike, snorkel, swim or simply relax and take advantage of the holistic treatments on offer.

OUT IN THE DESERT – ABU DHABI
We’ve gone out on a limb with the idea of promoting a rather obscure destination in our list of five winter getaways, but Abu Dhabi rarely gets a good tourism plug so here goes. For those seeking an escape from the Christmas hype, you will get this here – there will be no jingle bell choruses in the shopping malls here thank you very much.
The United Arab Emirates is a Muslim nation and while you will find churches here celebrating Christmas, they obviously don’t advertise themselves as flagrantly as in Christian countries.
Abu Dhabi is the capital and is actually located mostly on an island on the Persian Gulf in the Arabian Peninsula. While it is a hot place most of the year, it is coolest between November and March with 20-30 degree temperatures, perfect for those who prefer a warm, but-not-too-warm, climate.
There are plenty of things to see and do in Abu Dhabi with 400km of coastline including 10 public beaches, 20 parks and gardens, an array of architecture to admire including 382m high skyscrapers, old mosques, dhow sailing, museums and islands to explore. 
Where to stay
You could stay at the Emirates Palace while you’re in Abu Dhabi, the second most expensive hotel ever built. If your budget doesn’t quite stretch to US $800 plus per night, then perhaps consider the Desert Islands Resort and Spa located on Sir Bani Yas island where you can enjoy spacious suites and rooms, relax in the infinity pool or even take a game drive through the wildlife sanctuary located on the resort’s doorstep.

DREAMING OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS – NEW YORK
If you want a vacation but don’t want to miss out on the Christmas festivities, the Big Apple is the perfect place to visit. Chances are you’ve already had a peep at what it looks like at Christmas time thanks to the many movies that are shot around New York, but nothing beats going there yourself. In New York they do Christmas with aplomb. That means roasted chestnuts, ice skating in the major parks, colourful shop decorations and Central Park decked out with snow like a fairyland.
Some say Christmas begins when the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is held on the fourth Thursday in November, while others declare it’s when the Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Centre (right) is lit, a tradition dating back to 1933. Both are equally fantastic.
Other Christmas traditions in New York include the Radio City Music Halls Christmas show featuring the “Rockettes” 36 dancing girls, the Black Friday sales held the day after Thanksgiving where you can find 50-70 percent off, standing in line at the world’s biggest toy store FAO Shwartz and taking the kids to Santa Land at Macy’s.
Where to stay
Accommodation in New York can range from backpacker haunts through to classy high-end Manhattan hotels. Unfortunately it’s always expensive despite the economic troubles that have plagued the USA in recent years. Mostly you’re looking at $100 a night for a private room. For something quite original consider a stay at The Inn at Iriving Place, a Victorian townhouse that was built in 1834 in the quiet tree-lined area of Gramercy Park. This park is actually Manhattan’s last remaining private park and the inn itself looks more like a family house than a hotel. Inside the rooms and suites are in keeping with the homely, elegant period with ornate mirrors and various antiques. Well located for access to Greenwich Village, Broadway, Madison Avenue and other famous locations.

WINTER ACTION – VANCOUVER
Adjust your goggles and swallow that adrenaline, a winter holiday in Vancouver is all about action on the slopes. If you like bundling up and getting out into the snow and ice, this is the location for you this winter. Vancouver hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics, so when it comes to skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing they know how it’s done.
Vancouver boasts three world class ski facilities locally at Grouse Mountain, Cypress Bowl and Mount Seymour. Here you can try out downhill runs, cross-country skiing and snow show trails. Or venture a little further afield to Whistler or Blackcomb, about two hours north, where 8,000 acres are there to play with featuring 5,280 feet of vertical, 200 trails and fantastic downhill and heli-skiing.
The other great thing about Vancouver is that when you tire of the snow action or the hours of daylight run out, there’s plenty of night time entertainment including fine dining and shopping and a number of local historic monuments.
Where to stay
Most hotels in Vancouver are in the downtown or West End which are within walking distance of the major sights. Places to look out for include Vancouver’s most famous landmark hotel, the Fairmont on West Georgia Street. Alternatively try the Georgian Court Hotel located right in the heart of Vancouver. It was designed by award-winning Canadian interior designer Robert Ledingham and features spacious rooms with nine-foot ceilings and opening windows, a floor dedicated to female guests, three restaurants and comforts like a spa and jacuzzi. There are some other great touches too, like the bikes available from reception with which you can explore the city’s cycle paths.

30 Things to Stop Doing to Yourself
When you stop chasing the wrong things you give
the right things a chance to catch you.
As Maria Robinson once said, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”  Nothing could be closer to the truth.  But before you can begin this process of transformation you have to stop doing the things that have been holding you back.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
  1. Stop spending time with the wrong people. – Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.  If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you.  You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot.  Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth.  And remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst that are your true friends.
  2. Stop running from your problems. – Face them head on.  No, it won’t be easy.  There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them.  We aren’t supposed to be able to instantly solve problems.  That’s not how we’re made.  In fact, we’re made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall.  Because that’s the whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time.  This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become.
  3. Stop lying to yourself. – You can lie to anyone else in the world, but you can’t lie to yourself.  Our lives improve only when we take chances, and the first and most difficult chance we can take is to be honest with ourselves.  Read The Road Less Traveled.
  4. Stop putting your own needs on the back burner. – The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.  Yes, help others; but help yourself too.  If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now.
  5. Stop trying to be someone you’re not. – One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you likeeveryone else.  Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.  Don’t change so people will like you.  Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.
  6. Stop trying to hold onto the past. – You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.
  7. Stop being scared to make a mistake. – Doing something and getting it wrong is at least ten times more productive than doing nothing.  Every success has a trail of failures behind it, and every failure is leading towards success.  You end up regretting the things you did NOT do far more than the things you did.
  8. Stop berating yourself for old mistakes. – We may love the wrong person and cry about the wrong things, but no matter how things go wrong, one thing is for sure, mistakes help us find the person and things that are right for us.  We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past.  But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.  Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.
  9. Stop trying to buy happiness. – Many of the things we desire are expensive.  But the truth is, the things that really satisfy us are totally free – love, laughter and working on our passions.
  10. Stop exclusively looking to others for happiness. – If you’re not happy with who you are on the inside, you won’t be happy in a long-term relationship with anyone else either.  You have to create stability in your own life first before you can share it with someone else.  Read Stumbling on Happiness.
  11. Stop being idle. – Don’t think too much or you’ll create a problem that wasn’t even there in the first place.  Evaluate situations and take decisive action.  You cannot change what you refuse to confront.  Making progress involves risk.  Period!  You can’t make it to second base with your foot on first.
  12. Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises.  Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.
  13. Stop getting involved in relationships for the wrong reasons. – Relationships must be chosen wisely.  It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company.  There’s no need to rush.  If something is meant to be, it will happen – in the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason. Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.
  14. Stop rejecting new relationships just because old ones didn’t work. – In life you’ll realize that there is a purpose for everyone you meet.  Some will test you, some will use you and some will teach you.  But most importantly, some will bring out the best in you.
  15. Stop trying to compete against everyone else. – Don’t worry about what others doing better than you.  Concentrate on beating your own records every day.  Success is a battle between YOU and YOURSELF only.
  16. Stop being jealous of others. – Jealousy is the art of counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own.  Ask yourself this:  “What’s something I have that everyone wants?”
  17. Stop complaining and feeling sorry for yourself. – Life’s curveballs are thrown for a reason – to shift your path in a direction that is meant for you.  You may not see or understand everything the moment it happens, and it may be tough.  But reflect back on those negative curveballs thrown at you in the past.  You’ll often see that eventually they led you to a better place, person, state of mind, or situation.  So smile!  Let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday, and you will be.
  18. Stop holding grudges. – Don’t live your life with hate in your heart.  You will end up hurting yourself more than the people you hate.  Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.”  It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.”  Forgiveness is the answer… let go, find peace, liberate yourself!  And remember, forgiveness is not just for other people, it’s for you too.  If you must, forgive yourself, move on and try to do better next time.
  19. Stop letting others bring you down to their level. – Refuse to lower your standards to accommodate those who refuse to raise theirs.
  20. Stop wasting time explaining yourself to others. – Your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe it anyway.  Just do what you know in your heart is right.
  21. Stop doing the same things over and over without taking a break. – The time to take a deep breath is when you don’t have time for it.  If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.  Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly.
  22. Stop overlooking the beauty of small moments. – Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things.  The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.
  23. Stop trying to make things perfect. – The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists, it rewards people who get things done.  Read Getting Things Done.
  24. Stop following the path of least resistance. – Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile.  Don’t take the easy way out.  Do something extraordinary.
  25. Stop acting like everything is fine if it isn’t. – It’s okay to fall apart for a little while.  You don’t always have to pretend to be strong, and there is no need to constantly prove that everything is going well.  You shouldn’t be concerned with what other people are thinking either – cry if you need to – it’s healthy to shed your tears.  The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to smile again.
  26. Stop blaming others for your troubles. – The extent to which you can achieve your dreams depends on the extent to which you take responsibility for your life.  When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility – you give others power over that part of your life.
  27. Stop trying to be everything to everyone. – Doing so is impossible, and trying will only burn you out.  But making one person smile CAN change the world.  Maybe not the whole world, but their world.  So narrow your focus.
  28. Stop worrying so much. – Worry will not strip tomorrow of its burdens, it will strip today of its joy.  One way to check if something is worth mulling over is to ask yourself this question: “Will this matter in one year’s time?  Three years?  Five years?”  If not, then it’s not worth worrying about.
  29. Stop focusing on what you don’t want to happen. – Focus on what you do want to happen.  Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story.  If you awake every morning with the thought that something wonderful will happen in your life today, and you pay close attention, you’ll often find that you’re right.
  30. Stop being ungrateful. – No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.  Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.  Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.

12 Ways to Get a Second Chance in Life
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning,
but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
-Maria Robinson
We all need second chances.  This isn’t a perfect world.  We’re not perfect people.  I’m probably on my 1000th second chance right now and I’m not ashamed to admit it.  Because even though I’ve failed a lot, it means I’ve tried a lot too.
We rarely get things right the first time.  Almost every major accomplishment in a person’s life starts with the decision to try again and again – to get up after every failed attempt and give it another shot.
The only difference between an opportunity and an obstacle is attitude.  Getting a second chance in life is about giving yourself the opportunity to grow beyond your past failures.  It’s about positively adjusting your attitude toward future possibilities.  Here’s how:

1.  Let go of the past.

What’s done is done.  When life throws us nasty curveballs it typically doesn’t make any sense to us, and our natural emotional reaction might be to get extremely upset and scream obscenities at the top of our lungs.  But how does this help our dilemma?  Obviously, it doesn’t.
The smartest, and oftentimes hardest, thing we can do in these kinds of situations is to be more tempered in our reactions.  To want to scream obscenities, but to wiser and more disciplined than that.  To remember that emotional rage only makes matters worse.  And to remember that tragedies are rarely as bad as they seem, and even when they are, they give us an opportunity to grow stronger.
Every difficult moment in our lives is accompanied by an opportunity for personal growth and creativity.  But in order to attain this growth and creativity, we must first learn to let go of the past.  We must recognize that difficulties pass like everything else in life.  And once they pass, all we’re left with are our unique experiences and the lessons required two make a better attempt next time.

2.  Identify the lesson.

Everything is a life lesson.  Everyone you meet, everything you encounter, etc.  They’re all part of the learning experience we call ‘life.’
Never forget to acknowledge the lesson, especially when things don’t go yourway.  If you don’t get a job you wanted or a relationship doesn’t work, it only means something better is out there waiting.  And the lesson you just learned is the first step towards it.

3.  Lose the negative attitude.

Negative thinking creates negative results.  Positive thinking creates positive results.  Period.
Every one of the other suggestions in this article is irrelevant if your mind is stuck in the gutter.  Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story.  The mind must believe it can do something before it is capable of actually doing it.  For some practical positive thinking guidance I recommend readingThe Power of Positive Thinking.

4.  Accept accountability for your current situation.

Either you take accountability for your life or someone else will.  And when they do, you’ll become a slave to their ideas and dreams instead of a pioneer of your own.
You are the only one who can directly control the outcome of your life.  And no, it won’t always be easy.  Every person has a stack of obstacles in front of them.  You must take accountability for your situation and overcome these obstacles.  Choosing not to is giving up.

5.  Focus on the things you can change.

Some forces are out of your control.  The best thing you can do is do the best with what’s in front of you with the resources you do have access to.
Wasting your time, talent and emotional energy on things that are beyond your control is a recipe for frustration, misery and stagnation.  Invest your energy in the things you can change.

6.  Figure out what you really want.

You’ll be running on a hamster wheel forever if you never decide where you want to go.  Figure out what’s meaningful to you so you can be who you were born to be.
Some of us were born to be musicians – to communicate intricate thoughts and rousing feelings with the strings of a guitar.  Some of us were born to be poets – to touch people’s hearts with exquisite prose.  Some of us were born to be entrepreneurs – to create growth and opportunity where others saw rubbish.  And still, some of us were born to be or do whatever it is, specifically, that moves you.
Don’t quit just because you didn’t get it right on your first shot.  And don’t waste your life fulfilling someone else’s dreams and desires.  You must follow your intuition and make a decision to never give up on who you are capable of becoming.

7.  Eliminate the non-essential.

First, identify the essential – the things in your life that matter most to you.  Then eliminate the fluff. This drastically simplifies things and leaves you with a clean slate – a fresh, solid foundation to build upon without needless interferences.  This process works with any aspect of your life – work projects, relationships, general to-do lists, etc.
Remember, you can’t accomplish anything if you’re trying to accomplish everything.  Concentrate on the essential.  Get rid of the rest.  The Joy of Less is a great read on this topic.

8.  Be very specific.

When you set new goals for yourself, try to be as specific as possible.  “I want to lose twenty pounds” is a goal you can aim to achieve.  “I want to lose weight” is not.  Knowing the specific measurements of what you want to achieve is the only way you will ever get to the end result you desire.
Also, be specific with your actions too.  “I will exercise” is not actionable.  It’s far too vague.  “I will take a 30 minute jog every weekday at 6PM” is something you can actually do – something you can build a routine around – something you can measure.

9.  Concentrate on DOING instead of NOT DOING.

“Don’t think about eating that chocolate donut!”  What are you thinking about now?  Eating that chocolate donut, right?  When you concentrate on not thinking about something, you end up thinking about it.
The same philosophy holds true when it comes to breaking our bad habits.  By relentlessly trying not to do something, we end up thinking about it so much that we subconsciously provoke ourselves to cheat – to do the exact thing we are trying not to do.
Instead of concentrating on eliminating bad habits, concentrate on creating good habits (that just happen to replace the bad ones).  For instance, if you’re trying to eliminate snacking on junk food, you might create a new mental habit like this:  “At 3PM each day, about the time I’m usually ready for a snack, I will eat five whole wheat crackers.”  After a few weeks or months of concentrating on this good habit it will become part of your routine.  You’ll start doing the right thing without even thinking about it.

10.  Create a daily routine.

It’s so simple, but creating a daily routine for yourself can change your life.  The most productive routines, I’ve found, come at the start and end of the day – both your workday and your day in general.  That means, develop a routine for when you wake up, for when you first start working, for when you finish your work, and for the hour or two before you go to sleep.
Doing so will help you start each day on point, and end each day in a way that prepares you for tomorrow.  It will help you focus on the important stuff, instead of the distractions that keep popping up.  And most importantly, it will help you make steady progress – which is what second chances are all about.

11.  Maintain self-control and work on it for real.

The harder you work the luckier you will become.  Stop waiting around for things to work out.  If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.
While many of us decide at some point during the course of our lives that we want to answer our calling, only an astute few of us actually work on it.  By “working on it,” I mean truly devoting oneself to the end result.  The rest of us never act on our decision.  Or, at best, we pretend to act on it by putting forth an uninspired, half-assed effort.
If you want a real second chance, you’ve got to be willing to give it all you got.  No slacking off!  This means you have to strengthen and maintain your self-control.  The best way I’ve found to do this is to take one small bite of the elephant at a time.  Start with just one activity, and make a plan for how you will deal with troubles when they arise.  For instance, if you’re trying to lose weight, come up with a list of healthy snacks you can eat when you get the craving for snacks.  It will be hard in the beginning, but it will get easier.  And that’s the whole point.  As your strength grows, you can take on bigger challenges.
Remember, life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile.  Achieving your dreams can be a lot of work, even the second time around.  Be ready for it.  Read Getting Things Done for some practical guidance in this arena.

12.  Forget about impressing people.

So many people buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have to impress people they don’t know.  Or some variation thereof…
Don’t be one of these people.  It’s a waste of time.  And it’s probably one of the reasons you need a second chance in the first place.
Just keep doing what you know is right.  And if it doesn’t work, adjust your approach and try again.  You’ll get there eventually.
