Written by Earl Nightingale.

Some years ago, the late Nobel prize-winning Dr. Albert Schweitzer was asked by a reporter, "Doctor, what's wrong with men today?" The great doctor was silent a moment, and then he said, "Men simply don't think!"

It's about this that I want to talk with you. We live today in a golden age. This is an era that humanity has looked forward to, dreamed of, and worked toward for thousands of years. We live in the richest era that ever existed on the face of the earth ... a land of abundant opportunity for everyone.

However, if you take 100 individuals who start even at the age of 25, do you have any idea what will happen to those men and women by the time they're 65? These 100 people believe they're going to be successful. They are eager toward life, there is a certain sparkle in their eye, an erectness to their carriage, and life seems like a pretty interesting adventure to them.

But by the time they're 65, only one will be rich, four will be financially independent, five will still be working, and 54 will be broke — depending on others for life's necessities.

Only five out of 100 make the grade! Why do so many fail? What has happened to the sparkle that was there when they were 25? What has become of the dreams, the hopes, the plans ... and why is there such a large disparity between what these people intended to do and what they actually accomplished?

Internet etiquette is something everyone should know but often seem to ignore. In Virtual Realities poor etiquette is rampant. There are times when things are appropriate and other times when they are not. Here are some do's and don'ts that will make your experience and how others perceive you online more enjoyable. This list is not intended to make you feel good about yourself but rather to open your eyes to some behaviors either you or others you know may be imposing on others, whether intentional or not. In other words, I am not coddling you so you read this at your own risk. Don't say I didn't warn you.

1. LOL does not make it better. If you say something cruel adding a LOL or hahaha at the end does not make it a joke or funny. It is still cruel and you will be shunned the more you do it.

2. Sending a friend request before even talking to someone at all is rude. It is like walking up to them in the street and copping a feel without even asking them their name. Very inappropriate. Take a few moments and say hello, introduce yourself, find out if you even have anything in common and then politely ask if you can add them. The amount of 'friends' on your list does not make you a more desirable person to friend. Who you are and how you behave does.  It just shows you will friend anyone and that is not always attractive to the right people, if you know what I mean.

3. Help new members whenever possible. You were new once too and some users joining a virtual reality may have never been on one before. Every day new people are experiencing the internet for the first time so be kind, offer assistance and you may find you make many new friends.
