So sit back, take a deep breath, and get ready to be enlightened! Use this phrase to suggest that the glasses we see with are all different. 2. .. Meaning: No pain, no gain . I'm afraid I can't think of any phrase meaning 'everywhere'.
On January 20, the United States inaugurates its 45th president. The 2016 election was fraught with anger and anxiety on all sides. It seems most felt there was something to fear from each opposing candidate. The alarmist sentiments did not stop once the decision was made, either. From social media to international news headlines, there are many dire predictions about what the next four years may hold. The real fear is uncertainty.
I prefer not to live life in fear's grip. Catastrophe can happen in any life--no matter who is president--but I choose instead to focus on personal growth and opportunities. In those moments when I am tempted to give in to all of that negativity and hyperbole, I look to history's bravest and boldest and I take heart at their words.

In the workplace, native English speakers use a wide variety of idioms to describe people. Some of these expressions are positive, some negative, and others neutral. Knowing these idioms means more than learning the language – it is part of understanding business culture. In order to participate fully in a business context, you should become familiar with these commonly used phrases.
Use the expression yourself only after you have mastered the meaning. To be safe, start using the complimentary idioms, to make positive comments about people at work. Then, move on to using the neutral expressions. Last, when you are 100% sure of the meaning, add the negative expressions to your speaking vocabulary. Remember, if you say something nice about someone by mistake, it’s not so bad. However, if you say something strongly negative, it could be tricky in terms of your career. So always make sure you understand the meaning fully before using any idioms to describe your colleagues. Also, be aware that the meaning of some idioms may overlap. For example, a generally positive or neutral idiom may be used in a negative way, depending on the position, point of view, or tone of the speaker.
