Think that there is nothing easier than buying new sunglasses? Wrong. Learn how to choose a new pair in the right way.
Everything is not as simple as it seems at first, when it comes to the choice of new sunglasses. There are particular things that should be taken into account:
1. Right size
Size is of big importance and should never be ignored. Over-sized sunglasses can fall out of your head and get scratched.  Small-size sunglasses can make you feel uncomfortable.
2. Optimal color

Color of your lenses affects the way you see different colors when having your sunglasses on. Grey and brown have the lowest level of distortion.

Habits are the key to succeeding in life, regardless of whether it involves adopting the good ones, or kicking the bad ones. Success will revolve around your habits, so thinking carefully before adopting any new ones that may cause issues when trying to pursue you dreams and desires.

Since becoming successful involves doing small and sometimes fairly average things over and over again until you perfect them, a habit is what’s going to keep you on track and ensure that you continuously improve day by day at your selected skills.

Bad habits can easily kill people’s dreams and desires, because their destructive and not constructive traits. And making destructive traits a habit won’t get you off the ground, they’ll make sure you stay firmly on it.

1. Procrastination

Procrastination is the first habit to drop in order save your dreams and desires from getting washed away. It’s normally the reason that startups never get off the ground, simply because more time is spent on the less important things to make you feel like your making progress; however whilst putting off the important tasks to put off the risk of failing.

I don’t know if you’ve ever watched ‘How I Met Your Mother’ on T.V, but there’s an episode where Ted starts his own architecture firm. He fixates on the setup of his office: desk, computer, ornaments and such, but hasn’t started calling any clients. He later says that the longer he puts off calling clients, the longer he can say he owned an architecture firm that wasn’t a complete failure.

2. Laziness

I don’t know how people expect to get anywhere by being lazy. Many of us are though. We weren’t born like that, we didn’t spend our childhoods sleeping in till noon, doing nothing but watching T.V and eating crap all day long. But as you become older you get hit by problems, gain more knowledge about, and more responsibility within the world.

It’s at that point where you start to develop the habit of sitting back, doing things when you feel like it and generally becoming the lazy person you might be today. Being lazy generally means that you won’t be willing to get up early, work hard and grind to get where you want to be.

You may have the desire to, but because of this bad habit you have, the discipline and drive just won’t be there in order to communicate with your mind and body to get up and do it.

3. Quitting

They say that the temptation to quit is greatest right before people succeed. In other words, when you feel like you have nothing left and you’re ready to throw in the towel, hold on. Success might be right around the corner.

If you quit things very easily and early on with any new hobby or venture you undertake, then you’ll never get past that point of success with them. It’s not because you can’t do it, because you can. It’s because you quit before you even had time to get good at it. The only time quitting makes sense is when you’ve either realized that it’s definitely not what you want to do.

4. Excuses

There are far too many excuses that people will tell themselves daily, that to be honest are pretty terrible. It reminds me of when you sat back in class at school, and would hear every possible excuse being used as to why someone didn’t hand in their coursework on time. And by the time you got asked, you had to come up with a unique excuse that hadn’t been used before, just to give you a better chance of being let off.

I’ll be honest, you can tell yourself every excuse that you want to. Nobody else cares whether you give yourself excuses or not, and they certainly won’t be benefiting you in any way apart from making things easier for you in that very short period. Every time you begin to think of an excuse, think of where you’d be 3 years from now if you told yourself that one excuse every day.

Would you be exactly where you are now?

5. Negative Thinking

A guaranteed habit that kills people’s dreams and desires, is negative thinking, which the majority of us will see on pretty much a daily basis, whether it be within ourselves or from watching others.

Grasp every opportunity. There will be negative sides to be overcome but just think about the positive outcome. This is one habit every dreamer needs to kick.

6. Over-expenditure

Dreams involve money in pretty much every case. Whether you want to go traveling or start your own business, become a professional athlete and so on. They all require various amounts of cash in order to get there. It’s certainly not the main factor, but it’s a pretty important one, and you probably aren’t helping yourself by buying everything in site that will go out of fashion within the next year or so.

Your dreams require spending money, just the same as going out and buying expensive clothes or electronics, but the difference is that when you put your money in yourself and what you want for your future, it’s an investment. It’s definitely not a waste of money. So think twice before you buy that new car, or that new games console, and invest the money in yourself.

Investing is better than spending or saving. The returns from it have the potential to be far greater.

7. Social Media

Social Media kills time, a lot of time. It’s a bad habit, but also a very good one in order to meet new people and as a business or entrepreneur to promote yourself and make new connections. But for now, we’re calling it a bad habit simply for the fact that so many people get distracted by it whilst trying to do some work.

Why do you think so many companies block you from accessing social media websites whilst at work?

Simply because they’re addictive and you’ll end up wasting the companies time. This is definitely one habit to control in order for you to get your work done and progress with the things you’re trying to achieve.

8. Being comfortable

It may sound a bit strange when you read the title. “Surely being comfortable is a good thing right?” It’s a good thing because you’re relatively happy where you are, but it’s a bad thing because you have no idea how long you are going to be comfortable for, circumstances may change. And in the mean time, you’ve stopped working hard, stopped pushing yourself and stopped chasing your dreams.

One day you’ll stop and realize how much time you’ve wasted being comfortable, for it all to now come crashing down on you and put you in a position far, far from it.

I’m not saying that you should never become comfortable, because that’s a great feeling to have. I’m just saying that you should go after what you want and never stop working towards it. Realize when it’s the right time to become comfortable.

Bill Gates
Bill Gates is the richest man in the world, after founding Microsoft in 1975. He is now worth $76 billion, as Microsoft has risen to create the number 1 operating system brand Windows, which has been re-developed several times.

I’ve scoured the net and compiled a list of 10 Bill Gates tips that he has given to people at one point or another in his life time, to show them what it takes to become successful and wealthy.  He is the wealthiest man in the world after all, so you’d be pretty stupid not to listen to what he says!

1. Start as early as possible

Bill Gates was only 13 years old when he started working with computers. When you start something at an early point in your life, you become molded around it. Not only will you have a chance of becoming successful sooner than most people, but you would also be less likely to want to give up.

If you’ve had a dream that you start working towards when you’re young, you will be more immune to people telling you what you can or can’t do. By the time you’re an adult and people actually start to take more notice of what you’re working towards, you will be stubborn enough to just ignore them.

The time that you’re most influenced by others is when you’re younger, so if you’ve seen things on T.V or on the internet where others have become successful, this will be imprinted in your mind and you won’t have doubt about what you can or can’t do.

2. Enter in partnerships

Bill Gates was very fond of forming partnerships with people, people who were the top dog and that made Gates become the ‘Sidekick’. He was happy with this, because it unlocked new opportunities for him and the potential to learn from other successful entrepreneurs who could teach him a thing or two.

Not only that, but it meant that he built relationships with people that would definitely be able to help him out with his future endeavors.

3. You will not make $60,000 a year right out of high school

Let’s be honest, you’re not going to make $60,000 a year straight out of high school, so if for some reason you think you will, stop kidding yourself. No matter how much education you have, you still need experience to work your way at the top. You won’t get appointed CEO of a multi-national company just because you have a degree in business management.

That’s a position that you need to earn, by either starting your own company and working hard to take it to the top, or working your way up within a company and proving yourself to people.

4. Be your own boss as soon as possible

Bill Gates became a boss at a fairly early age. He deserved it, and it put him in an excellent position with pure control over his success.

“If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to build theirs.” – Bill Gates

5. Don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them

What is the pointing in blaming other people for your mistakes? Who are you trying to fool? Your mistakes are on you, they are not anyone else’s fault, so stop blaming other people just to try and rid your conscience of guilt.

Mistakes are made to be learnt from. You now know what or what not to do in the same situation when it rolls around for a second time and believe me, in most cases it will roll around again.

“If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.” – Bill Gates

6. Be committed and passionate

I think this is always included by every entrepreneur as a good bit of advice. You need to be committed to what you love and have great passion for what you do. The successful people in this world make it look so easy because they absolutely love what they are doing. If you’re finding things too stressful and too hard, then I’m not sure you’re working on the right thing.

7. Life is the best school, not university or college

No matter how many books you read, no matter how many tests you take, nothing from university or college can properly prepare you for life in the real world.

Real life jobs and bosses does not just involve you studying and them teaching you. It’s real life work that you need to be able to carry out, otherwise you will be fired. End of.

“If you think your teacher is tough, wait until you get a boss. He doesn’t have tenure.” – Bill Gates

8. Be nice to nerds

“Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.” – Bill Gates

It’s true, people who you’d probably class as ‘nerds’ are actually the ones who will work the hardest, be the smartest, and be determined to succeed.

If you’re horrible to nerds then you’re basically taking your chances with fate, because you could easily end up working for one, or even apply for a position at a company who is run by someone you know and have been horrible to in the past.
Still think you have a chance of getting the job?

9. TV is not real life

“Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.” – Bill Gates

You need to stop getting sucked into Television and believing that what you’re seeing in some cases may actually be what people do in real life.

Real life is tough and anybody who’s anywhere near successful will not be sitting around in coffee shops all day talking to their friends. They will be out working the grind to pay their bills and improve their financial situation.

10. Life is not fair

“Life is not fair. Get used to it.” – Bill Gates

No matter how hard you work in life, there will always be times where things don’t go your way, perhaps though no fault of your own. There will be things that you cannot control. You will get knocked down, but you need to be able to stand up.

Life isn’t fair. It’s a test, a game, a risk. If you fall down and don’t bother getting back up, you don’t deserve to be successful. Winners know that life isn’t fair and they will keep getting back up until they’ve made it.

With over 200 countries in the world, it's easy to think the word "country" equates to a massive land area with large numbers of people. Some nations are so small that cities within other nations are giants compared to them. Mostly found in Europe, the Caribbean, and the Pacific, there are many countries in the world with an area of less than 400 square kilometers.

With their own governments and own culture, these small countries are some of the richest, most remote, and most intriguing places in the world. Let's take a look at the 10 smallest countries in the world today:

10 – Grenada - 344 km²

An island nation in the Caribbean, Grenada is also known as “The Island of Spice." The world's largest producer of nutmeg and mace crops, this nation located northwest of Trinidad and Tobago was colonized by the French from 1649 to 1763, which explains the very strong influence of French tradition and culture in the country. A popular tourist destination, you'll find French-influenced architecture and art all around the island, with cricket as the most popular sport.

9 – Malta - 316 km²

Malta is another island country, however, its located in the Mediterranean Sea. 3 major islands make up the Republic of Malta: Gozo, Comino, and the largest, Malta.

Today, the Maldives has a vibrant tourism economy due to its famous white sand beaches and crystal blue waters.

7 – Saint Kitts and Nevis - 261 km²

The Mother Colony of the West Indies, these 2 islands in the Caribbean were some of the first islands to be occupied by Europeans. Its economy is dependent on tourism, agriculture, and small manufacturing industries. The islands also provide fantastic diving sites due to abundant marine life. A major sugar exporter for centuries, the large plantations are now beautiful estates that have been converted into hotels and resorts.

6 – Liechtenstein - 160 km²

A German-speaking country, this is the only nation in the world to be completely located in the Alps. Located between Switzerland and Austria, Liechtenstein is the richest country in the world by GDP per capita, with the lowest unemployment rate (1.5%). Getting into the country is a little tricky without an airport. Visitors must go through Switzerland's Zurich Airport to reach this Alpine country that's still ruled by a prince.

5 – San Marino - 61 km²

Surrounded completely by Italy, San Marino is also known as the Most Serene Republic of San Marino. Claiming to be the oldest surviving sovereign state in the world, it is also one of the wealthiest in terms of GDP per capita.

An island nation located east of Australia, Nauru is the smallest island country in the world. It was known in the 1980's for a booming phosphate mining but is now a quiet island off the radar of tourists. Formerly known as Pleasant Island, its phosphate resources are now depleted, leading to a 90% national unemployment rate, with the remaining 10% employed by the government. Nauru is also known as the country with the most obese people in the world, with 97% of its men and 93% of women being obese or overweight. Because of this, Nauru is also home to the world's highest level of type 2 diabetes, with 40% of its population suffering from the ailment.
