Online Education – Getting Started With The Basics

Application for a degree course at a University is a lengthy process. Filling out of the requisite forms and looking out for the recommendations necessary and making sure that everything has been taken care of may take a long time. The whole procedure is extremely complex. It is an agonizing wait until the admissions department verifies the details in the form and gets back to you on the status of your application.

The method of application for an online degree depends on the college or university in question and each institution has its own different procedures. Some of them allow online applications, whereas others require the physical paper copy of the form after enrolling online. The institutions do not give a choice for both the options. However, one needs to be aware of the logistic problems involved in both methods of application for degrees.

Some of the online applications need to be filled in one sitting and can not be done in parts. It is not possible to save the half-completed form and then go back to complete it later. This means that you need to have at hand, all the data that may be required for completion of the form. Physical forms filled up and sent by post may tend to get lost or you may have not completed the form and missed out some sections. There is no way to check, except the admissions department informs you of the mistakes. However, one must always retain a copy of the application forms sent out, be it online or by post.

Filling the application is the easy part. The issue of concern is the accreditation and whether your application will be judged on the merit, it describes. Most online universities are more concerned with the fact that you are willing to pay money to get admission in the university. You have to make sure of the university's background, genuineness and identity before you decide to enroll for any course.

While filling the application form for online education, make sure that you have completed all the details asked for in the application. Secondly, ensure that you have provided all relevant information. You can take the services of career guidance agencies if you feel you need help in the matter. Better still, you could contact the administrative office of the college or university if you require clarification of any point or if you need any information. They are the best source of information, should you feel the need for any advice or clarifications in the matter of the online application.

The most crucial point in the whole procedure of application for online degree is that it should reach the concerned institution on time. If you do not meet the deadline and your application reaches late, the institution may just reject it. Therefore, it is vital to see that you complete all the necessary formalities well in advance and send the form before the deadline, to avoid disappointment. …

Why Success is a Science

My studies of the highly successful prove that they continually achieve their results by doing “certain things in a certain way.” I have also found that “like causes produce like effects.” Therefore, if you and I consistently employ the same thought processes and actions of these highly-successful individuals, we must produce the same results. This is why success is an absolute science. If you apply the principles (thoughts and actions) of peak performers, you will accelerate your sales and life results far beyond your current level of achievement. Put it to the test.

In his best-selling book, Psychocybernetics, Dr. Maxwell Maltz talks about our daily actions being the direct result of our habits. Since your actions are the cause of your results, it is fair to assume that your habits are what ultimately create the results you obtain. Habits are the things you and I do naturally and automatically, without thinking. These habits have been conditioned at a very early age and are now collected in our unconscious mind. According to Maltz, if you want to change your results, you must begin to form new habits. In other words, you must change the things you do automatically.

Your current thinking regarding your abilities, your product and your industry is habitual — and we call that programming. This programming is buried in your unconscious mind, and it drives your behavior on a daily basis.

These programs, or mindset, came from outside sources and we often accept them without question. Many times our mindset contains lack and limitation because a parent, teacher, coach, or another person we respected wanted to protect us from disappointment. They told us to “be realistic,” “don’t expect too much,” “life is hard” and many other disempowering beliefs. The moment you accept their programs, they drive your behavior and often limit your results. Following are the first steps in building the habits of a top sales performer. Habits that will drive massive action and create incredible results!

  1. Set a clear and measurable goal.

    Make it one that you are excited about accomplishing. The human spirit will not invest itself in mediocrity — so if you want to succeed in overcoming limiting habits, your goal must create passion! As you set your goal, two things are important: it must be specific and measurable. Write “I am making $70,000” versus “I want to make more money.” When your goal is measurable you will know exactly when it is accomplished.

  2. Write your goal in the present tense.

    This will cause you to fully associate to the achievement of your goal. Your unconscious mind is totally deductive, and therefore, it accepts anything that your conscious mind gives it without question. Consequently, correct phrasing is imperative. Write your goal as “I am so happy that I earn a minimum of $70,000 per year” versus “I want to earn $70,000 per year.” Write your goal as if you already have it right now.

  3. Write your goal every single day, carry it with you
