While there is no away you can run away from this agony, you can surely take care to minimize the anguish for both the souls. Here are few tips that can be your guide during a break-up:

It is important to talk to your beau before making the final announcement to break up. Be very sure of this decision and communicate effectively to him or her, the reason of the break-up. The reason should be a just one and not a flimsy ground.

If you have made your decision, communicating it to your partner may give you jitters and you may want to escape from the situation. However, running away is not the solution. Breaking up over a text message or an email is a heartless and cowardly way to break up. Have a clear chat with your partner to share your decision and the reason behind it. There may be a chance that your beau may try to convince you to give your relationship another chance. However, it is important that you stick to your decision and do not keep yo-yoing leaving the subject open and loose.

Also, make sure that your partner is the first one to know of your decision and does not hear your announcement from a third party.

2. Take a break before breaking up

If you have been together for a long time, breaking away or disconnecting may take come time. So take a break and see how you feel about each other and if you miss each other at all. You may miss each other initially but it may fizzle out with time. If the bond fizzles out, you are ready to finally declare the break up.

Keep the communication going

Cutting off all communication at one go may be disastrous for both the parties. If you have been together for a long time, you would have a lot of attachment towards each other. You cannot just snap off the cord if you really care for each other and do not want to hurt each other. Cut off communication slowly to make the attachment fizzle away gradually. If you used to talk every day, you could make it every alternate day and then once a week and so on. Phone calls could be replaced by text messages and then by emails. Go slow and steady in the break up process if you do not want to cause a heart sore.

While the above tips may give you a guide to minimize the pain and anguish of a break up, the most important thing to do is to make a decision and stick to it, no matter what. Your heart may oscillate during this heart-breaking journey, but it’s important to see this bend in life as an important life lesson and move on with a smile!

Think like a rich person

Think like a rich person

Most would think you’re crazy to just keep on thinking that one day you’ll get rich in an instant. Well, maybe it’s possible for those who have a good imagination or having a good mind for thinking too much leading to unexpected and desiring results in the end.

If you want to grow rich using your mind, try to first put the exact amount in figures or words in your mind and plant it there. You need to be very specific and not just say it out loud your intentions of wanting a lot of money. This is somewhat a psychological intervention going on which is favored to be effective.

Next, think of your intentions on how you plan to return the money you planted in your mind. As I’ve said, it’s part of a psychological play you need to play through. Do not even think of answering on getting something for nothing at all which is totally not acceptable.

Establishing an Exact Date

Start acting like the rich

When you have the figures and your plan to pay it, next is you need to find an exact date when you wish to have the amount of money you want in your possession. It is essential that you do thorough planning on these matters especially on money because you will never know when you might need it when the time comes.

Establish the definite date when you are ready for it. Do not just decide merely on second thoughts or so that you can just get the money without any plans of using it at the soonest possible time.

Create a Plan for Your Desires

Do more planning especially on how you intend to use the money as soon as you get it. It doesn’t matter if you succeed or not, the important thing is you carry it out without delay as soon as you are sure of your plans.

But before you take action, you need to first make sure your plan is good and without any flaws. It is unwise to do things with no real plan. To do it right, write your intentions down including the amount of money you need and what you need to do in return to get it.
Next, get a clear summary of your plan and try to look at it as if in a real situation of the probability of its effectiveness. You’ll eventually get what you want in the end of it all.
