See The Most Commonly Misused Words That Have Embarrassed The Smartest People In The World

We're all tempted to use words that we're not too familiar with, but at the end of the day we end up making a mess of it all.

It's the words that we think we're using correctly that wreak the most havoc.

We throw them around in meetings, e-mails and important documents (such as resumes), and they land, like fingernails across a chalkboard, on everyone who has to hear or read them.

Below are some of the most commonly misused words that make smart people look dumb

Accept vs. Except

These two words sound similar but have very different meanings. Accept means to receive something willingly: "His mom accepted his explanation" or "She accepted the gift graciously." Except signifies exclusion: "I can attend every meeting except the one next week."

To help you remember, note that both except and exclusion begin with ex.

Affect vs. Effect

To make these words even more confusing than they already are, both can be used as either a noun or a verb.

Let's start with the verbs. Affect means to influence something or someone; effect means to accomplish something. "Your job was affected by the organizational restructuring" but "These changes will be effected on Monday."

As a noun, an effect is the result of something: "The sunny weather had a huge effect on sales." It's almost always the right choice because the noun affect refers to an emotional state and is rarely used outside of psychological circles: "The patient's affect was flat."

Lie vs. Lay

We're all pretty clear on the lie that means an untruth. It's the other usage that trips us up. Lie also means to recline: "Why don't you lie down and rest?" Lay requires an object: "Lay the book on the table." Lie is something you can do by yourself, but you need an object to lay.

It's more confusing in the past tense. The past tense of lie is--you guessed it--lay: "I lay down for an hour last night." And the past tense of lay is laid: "I laid the book on the table."

Bring vs. Take

Bring and take both describe transporting something or someone from one place to another, but the correct usage depends on the speaker's point of view. Somebody brings something to you, but you take it to somewhere else: "Bring me the mail, then take your shoes to your room."

Just remember, if the movement is toward you, use bring; if the movement is away from you, use take.

Ironic vs. Coincidental

A lot of people get this wrong. If you break your leg the day before a ski trip, that's not ironic--it's coincidental (and bad luck).

Ironic has several meanings, all of which include some type of reversal of what was expected. Verbal irony is when a person says one thing but clearly means another. Situational irony is when a result is the opposite of what was expected. O. Henry was a master of situational irony. In "The Gift of the Magi," Jim sells his watch to buy combs for his wife's hair, and she sells her hair to buy a chain for Jim's watch. Each character sold something precious to buy a gift for the other, but those gifts were intended for what the other person sold. That is true irony.

If you break your leg the day before a ski trip, that's coincidental. If you drive up to the mountains to ski, and there was more snow back at your house, that's ironic.

Imply vs. Infer

To imply means to suggest something without saying it outright. To infer means to draw a conclusion from what someone else implies. As a general rule, the speaker/writer implies, and the listener/reader infers.

Nauseous vs. Nauseated

Nauseous has been misused so often that the incorrect usage is accepted in some circles. Still, it's important to note the difference. Nauseous means causing nausea; nauseated means experiencing nausea.

So, if your circle includes ultra-particular grammar sticklers, never say "I'm nauseous" unless you want them to be snickering behind your back.

Comprise vs. Compose

These are two of the most commonly misused words in the English language. Comprise means to include; compose means to make up.

It all comes down to parts versus the whole. When you use comprise, you put the whole first: "A soccer game comprises (includes) two halves." When you use compose, you put the pieces first: "Fifty states compose (make up) the United States of America."

Farther vs. Further

Farther refers to physical distance, while further describes the degree or extent of an action or situation. "I can't run any farther," but "I have nothing further to say."

If you can substitute "more" or "additional," use further.

Fewer vs. Less

Use fewer when you're referring to separate items that can be counted; use less when referring to a whole: "You have fewer dollars, but less money."

Bringing It All Together

English grammar can be tricky, and, a lot of times, the words that sound right are actually wrong.

With words such as those listed above, you just have to memorize the rules so that when you are about to use them, you'll catch yourself in the act and know for certain that you've written or said the right one.

Don't Give Up, Success Is Expensive and You Have to Earn It

A lot of people these days don't attain success because they spend a lot of time worrying about the temporal  problems and difficulties that they face during their quest.

Well let me tell you one thing today,  doing it big in anything was never easy and that law still remains,  look at all the successful people you know in any domain of achievement you will realize that they sacrificed a lot of things to be able to hit that jackpot, yes times have changed there are new ways of doing things but that doesn't change the number one cosmic law of action and reaction,  you have to earn everything either directly or remotely,  so the question now is are you willing to pay the price?

Michael Jackson dedicated his life to music right from his childhood and he did not cease to engage himself in musical activities that will contribute to his personal development on the long run, Michael spent nights listening and singing songs of his music idols, watching how they do it a d emulating their methods, (never cease to learn from the best in your field) we are witnesses of his massive success in the musical industry even today.

Muhammad Ali aka the Champ is one of the greatest boxers ever,  though he was known for bluffing a lot and making a lot of authoritative talks and jokes during media appearances,  he did not stop there,  he still jogged long Miles every morning,  he still trained at least 5 times  daily ,  why did he do all these? He knew the simple fact that there is a price to be paid for success and it is not all about faith, confidence or optimism.

So my brothers and sisters, I don't know what might be making you feel down,  maybe your job, relationship, career, business, or maybe things are not going the way you expect them to be. Don't give up, see these difficulties as temporary, sacrifice sleep and comfort to look for solution,  if you are religious fast and pray, if you feel ignorant buy books and humbly seek for guides and I promise you,  you will excel at the end because there is always fruit for labor, leave your comfort zone and pay the price for something more everlasting.

After thought : a lot of success don't last because people take short cuts to make it,  don't cut angles,  it makes you miss all the fun and experience that will keep you pinned at the top.

APC Is Finding It Difficult To Implement CHANGE - Pastor Tunde Bakare

A lot of Nigerians are now getting really disappointed because President Buhari has failed to do any of the things he promised during his presidential campaign

Pastor Tunde Bakare of Latter Rain Assembly, Lagos has said APC is already finding it difficult to transform the Nation. Bakare while leading prayer points on Sunday at his church explained this, as he made Nasil El-Rufai, the Kaduna State Governor, his point of reference.

Bakare quoted El-Rufai to have said; 'Nigeria had sunk deeper than any human being can redeem'. He then queried, if people that promised change can say this, and knowing PDP failed woefully, what then will be left of Nigeria? Hear him;

"I need to call your attention to the comments made by my brother and governor of Kaduna State, Nasir el-Rufai, who said Nigeria had sunk deeper than any human being can redeem. If the people in government, who promised us change can say this, then where does our hope lie?

"So, you can begin to wonder where the nation is heading towards. The PDP couldn't do it, the people who promised change, have started saying the nation's problems are deeper than human beings could solve. Who do you turn to to solve our problems?
"What they are saying is that we should turn to God to solve our problems. What we know is that Nigeria will work in our own time."

He however asked God to strengthen those who had genuine intention to govern the country, and to remove those who have come to enlarge their empires. He also had this to say on Chibok girls.

"Getting a solution to the nation's problem is becoming difficult; they do not have answers to where the missing girls are located. I want to tell you that if the schoolgirls are the children of top government officials, they would have known what they can do to rescue them. We are praying that God will send confusion to the midst of the girls' captors that they would be set free,"
