    The only danger is not evolving! 

    The only danger is not evolving!

    Vanity Fair magazine featured interviews about the early days of the Internet. Jeff Bezos revealed that Amazon was successful from the start.

    In fact, orders were backlogging. Jeff and a fellow executive headed to the shipping room to help process orders. They were on their hands and knees, packing up books. When his colleague turned to him and said, “This is killing my knees and my back.” Jeff mulled it over, then said, “We should get kneepads.” His friend looked at him like he was crazy. “No Jeff, we should get packing tables.”

    An excellent example of how intriguing it is when someone bypasses a “low hanging fruit” answer.

    Moreover, introduces a more innovative, evolved way to solve a problem.

    Lack of Confidence? 

    Presenting…

    Tennis champ Chris Evert was asked, on the first day of the tournament, if Serena Williams had a chance of winning the 2014 US Open. Chris said, “We all know confidence is the name of the game for her.” Confidence is the name of the game for all of us. Fortunately, it is a learnable skill, not a strange ability we either have or don’t.

    These four steps can help you channel nervousness into the “show,” so you can walk into any interaction, raring to go.

    1. Go for a walk/rehearse.
    2. Have a flexible game plan.
    3. Give yourself a home-field advantage.
    4. Tower, don’t cower.

    Live With a Purpose! 

    Whenever you’re angry, frustrated, irritated, fearful, anxious, procrastinating, feeling hurt, wishing people would be different … you’re in the bubble. These are signs.
    When you notice that you’re in the bubble, expand your mind and heart. Wish others well. Want their happiness, as you want your own happiness. See other people’s suffering and wish for it to end or lessen. See how you can help. How can you lessen the suffering of others? Sometimes it’s by paying attention, listening. Other times you need to be there, lend a hand. learn to be bigger than yourself. Learn that the life they’ve given as is a gift, and we must make the most of it, and not waste a second.
    Learn that there is nothing more fulfilling than making the lives of others a little better. Be Well and Happy.

    Small Words With Great Meanings! 

     

    Some little words have great implications. These are often outside the conscious awareness of the speaker or listener.

    Small word: But (although, however)

    Implied Meaning: But negates what has previously been said, (as do the other two words to a lesser extent). “That was an excellent presentation, but (however, although) you could make it even better by…” implies that it was not a great performance.

    Comment: It is much more useful to use and instead of but, unless you do want to negate what has been said.

    (For example, when the speaker mentions negatives! Such as “all the difficulties they have had met the deadline.” You can reply, “Yes, it was difficult, but you have learned so much from it.”)

    How you’re brought up can radically impact how successful you become. 

    Natural abilities stop mattering in hunting success after you reach a skills “threshold.” A far more important factor is whether you have useful intelligence.

    Practical intelligence is “procedural” knowledge.

    Knowing how to interpret and work social situations to get what you want. In other words, knowing who to ask what, and when. The ability to interact and negotiate with authority can help to get closer to our goals.

    This knowledge is not innate. Wealthier parents instil in their children a feeling of “entitlement”. More than lower-class parents do. They do this by paying more attention to their children. Providing their children with enriching activities that promote intellectual growth.

    They teach their children to demand respect and to “customise” a situation to suit their needs. In other words, they teach their kids practical intelligence.

    By contrast, poorer parents are often intimidated by authority. They let their children follow a pattern of “natural growth”. There is less pushing, prodding and encouraging than in wealthier families. Thus children from poorer households are less likely to learn practical intelligence.

    Thus, decreases their chances of success.

    The power of belief! 

    Almost every successful person begins with two beliefs: The future can be better than the present, and I have the power to make it so. Deep inside you is an unlived life just waiting to happen when you finally believe you can.

    Targeting and Nailing that Dream Job! 

    Doing what you love and what sits comfortably with you leads to happiness and fulfilment!

    You want to be noticed. You want to present an attractive and inspiring image to those around you. But sometimes it’s hard to find the right balance between “blowing your own trumpet” and underselling yourself.
