Smile Breaks The Communication Barriers

When you smile at someone when you meet even though you met them first time or during a conversation they unconsciously smile back at you. When they smile at you they feel happy about it. That is a good positive feeling and it will facilitate your conversation in a positive way. That is good for achieving whatever your goal is.

So smile to greet the people if you are in an unknown environment and during conversation with the people you don’t know that will help you create a positive atmosphere, which will be conducive to success in whatever your goal may be.

A YouTube video – “The hidden power of smiling” by Ron Gutman gives effects of smile:

Use Positive Body Language

Be aware of your body language when you are in touch with other people, especially they can help or hinder your success. Pay attention to your expressions, gestures and tone of voice. People are drawn like ants to sugar with interpreting of wrong body language. Positive body language can make a big difference in your success.

Kind of positive body language examples you should consider in your conversation with others are:

• An enthusiastic tone of your voice.
• Positive eye contact
• Positioning of shoulders.
• Movement of hands and feet.
• Uncrossing of arms.
• Positioning of legs.
• Leaning towards the person who is speaking.

These hints should help you maintain a positive body language in your conversation and make the outcome of it very positive.

A YouTube video – “Body Language Do’s & Don’ts – Good Manners.” by Howcast, have some good hints about body language:

Don’t Be Desperate To Seek Attention

When you speak with confidence, precise and friendly manner, people are more attentive and convincible by what you say than if you try to show them how important you are. All you need is to be considerate and friendly to win people and be likeable. People eventually become irresponsive to those who are desperate for attention. You need not have an extrovert personality to be liked by the people. People catch up very quickly as to what you are and who you are. They are more attracted to right attitude than how many people or what kind of people you know.

To get a sincere attention of the people here are my suggestion what you should do:

Don’t look desperate to get attention.
Be concise, friendly and considerate in what you are saying.
• When someone recognize you don’t sing your song to get more attention that comes out as a desperate attempt to get attention.
Give a sincere, deserving and openhearted credit to other people for your success.
Be genuine when you others credit in your success; people will catch on to your sincerity and will take you as a humble and appreciative personality. These are two cornerstone pillars on which will be based your likeability.

Once people start liking you based on your sincerity and genuine desire to serve them they will open to you. Then and only then your popularity, likeability and success will soar.

A YouTube video – “Ask Shallon: Are You Acting Desperate? How not to look CRAZY” by Shallon Lester explains how girl should not act desperate when trying to get attention of a guy:

Judge The Situation But Don’t Be Judgmental

No one likes the people with the preconceived ideas. People interact more openly with open minded people. No person will like a conversation with people who already formed an opinion without listening to whole conversation. If you don’t listen to them, why they should listen to you? This takes you nowhere in conversation.

This is my suggestion:

Be an open minded. It makes you more approachable and interesting to talk.
Don’t preconceive an opinion on the subject before listening and discerning on what others have to say.
• Learn to see the world through other people’s eyes.
• You don’t have to believe them.
• You don’t have to condone their behavior.
• It simply means that you delay your judgment long enough to fully understand what they are conveying.
Understand what is making them tick.
• That is the only way you can let them be what they are.
• Then you can deal with them as they are.

If you can bring yourself to understand them in that depth then only you can take the best benefit out of that discussion. So keep an open mind. That is what will help you succeed.

A YouTube video – “Judging others is Dangerous: Powerful Story – Video – Don’t Jump to Conclusions.” Gives good view on being judgmental:

What You Can Learn From Red Paper Clip Story

A guy with one red paperclip started doing bargains with other people. He traded red paper clip for a fish shaped pen, then sculpted door knob to fueled Coleman camp stove to Honda generator to instant party to a 2 person snow mobile to 2 person trip to British Columbia to a Cube Van to recording contract in Tokyo to spending a afternoon with Alice Cooper to kiss a motorized snow globe to role in Donna on Demand to a two-story farmhouse in Kipling, Saskatchewan. All this he did in one year span of time by crafting all these trades very ingeniously.

There are number of lessons to be learned from this story:

• To succeed in anything it does not matter how humble or small your beginning is.
• It pays to be persistent and stay in the path of success.
Money is not necessary for getting anything.
• It pays be creative and make other person feel that they need what you have.
• God or Universe is great, “You shall RECEIVE what you ASK.” Remember even your mom didn’t gave you food unless you asked when you were little.
Value is based on the perception of value in the eyes of beholder or person who desire certain thing.
One man’s trash may be a great treasure for other.
Being resourceful is more important than the resource itself.
Time is irrelevant; when you get into momentum success usually happens quickly.
Luck is created. You are not born lucky.
Where there is will, there is a way.
Universe brings circumstances, people and events in your path based on the vibrations you send out to it.

Ways To Increase Productivity

To be successful one has to be able to complete their goals in a reasonable time, so that they can feel excited about accomplishing their goals. I have few ideas to increase productivity which can help people reach their goals quicker:

• During your waking time there are certain periods you are more productive than others. Find out when you are more productive and use that slot of time to do what you need to do the most important work.
Forget about doing those tasks that are not important in current time. This removes unimportant tasks from chores to be done and saves more time to do important tasks.
Get rid of tasks which do not like to do by doing them first and getting them out of way. This gives you opportunity to concentrate on things which you really love to do.
Set goals for your active time period. Once you have planned the priorities the way you want you can really start finishing them.
Remove distractions when you doing a task so you can accomplish what you want.
Do similar tasks in one time-slot. It saves lot of time by not going back and forth between dissimilar tasks.
Give set amount of time slot for even similar tasks following a certain sequence and whatever is left do it in next day in the same time slot.
Set a goal how much work must be finished in a particular allocated time. Keep achieving more than your target.
• Certain task when finished makes you actually finish bigger part of the task. That part usually is 20% of effort needed. Do that first; it will make you feel you accomplish a lot. Here is the fact that 20% of actions produce 80% of results.
Delegate some of work to others recognizing their ability to the job. It not only gives you free time to do more things, it also increases your productivity by doing what you love to do more.
Set a deadline for endpoint in a task really helps you focus. It makes you feel that task is necessary and will get it done.
• Important to learn various other ways which help you do everything little faster.
Implement all those steps and if you need more help send your contact info to makeurdreamsareality@gmail.com or visit my website at http://makeurdreamsareality.com and leave contact info.

Some people are just difficult to deal with, but they are integral part of your life. You have to learn to deal with them on ongoing daily basis. Most important step in dealing with them is to be able to identify them. Once you know who they are, you will be able to chalk out proper plan to deal with them.

Let us dig into knowing who they are.

• They could be close family member, who you can be stuck with rest of your life does not matter what happens in life. You feel you have certain responsibility towards them.
• Your friends.
• They could be a co-worker. You are going to come in close business contact with them. Nothing short of leaving your job may help to avoid them.
• A cashier or floor worker in or a grocery store. That can be easily avoided. You will not be coming in touch them that often. They cannot be much of hindrance in progress of your life.
• A person you met in a party. It can also be minor inconvenience.
• An occasional encounter with a difficult person can be possible anywhere.

I Have A Dream ……. Fill in Blanks..

Having dream is OK, but how will you fulfill it? Here is how:

• First put it in writing on white sheet of paper with blue ink. This gives it a positive vibration.
Define it in as much detail as you can. If your dream is a car, state which brand, color, details of equipment and other features. Make it as real as possible. Go to the dealership, feel the lather of seats, inhale the smell of new car and take a picture with you in it.
Put that picture in your dream board.
Feel every day the way you should feel as if you already have your dream fulfilled. It is vibrations of feeling that is going to ask the Universe to give you guidance to achieve your dream.
Visualize a success. If you do so you are more likely to be successful in achieving that dream.
• Consistently take an action to get closer to achieving dream.

So to summarize define your dream in detail, believe in that you can do it, take action towards completing it and get motivated to achieving it.

A YouTube video – “Motivational video – Visualize your dream” – by Les Brown Gives details on how to visualize the dream:
