It is known that the powers and skills of effective orators and speakers are not innate. Orators, like many people, either by profession or interest, may have found it extremely difficult to communicate or to express their ideas in public. Then, what actions have they taken to improve their skills for speaking in public? Well, they have solved this problem, either by attending specific courses, or by learning good techniques for breathing and public speaking, which helped them overcome their fear of speaking, of expressing their ideas and opinions. Thus, by means of the spoken word, they have achieved success … (Continue Reading)
The time for taking a decision is the hardest one, because it means the end of all of the efforts of every person involved in a process. The entire organization and its directors are depending on the decisions that are to be taken. That’s why decision making is a key issue for the organizational lifecycle. Taking a decision is an instant so important, that there are a lot of people (organization’s directors included) who are always trying to run away from taking important decisions, because they’re unable to handle the pressure or they are assaulted by huge doubts before … (Continue Reading)
Setting accessible goals is a mandatory requirement to achieve our dreams, victories, and even to emotionally satisfy and promote social development. Undoubtedly, we have to focus our efforts and energy in order to fuel our projects and turn them into a successful reality. In practice, however, we should avoid dispersing our energy through several dreams at once. Instead, what we have to do is to choose one or two dreams and focus all our energy and resources solely on them. Obviously, this simple advice is dictated by common sense, but it is also a fact which is often completely … (Continue Reading)
We should know that worry is a form of fear, and all forms of fear generate fatigue. People who has learnt how to control their fears will find that their fatigue is substantially lowered. Fear, in its most dangerous form, appears when we feel there is some danger which we are unwilling to face. Almost everybody has some kind of fear. One might fear illness, economical failure, ignorance, jealousy, and so on. And how do we fight our fears? If, whenever we are assaulted by our fears, we try to distract our mind by thinking of something else, well, … (Continue Reading)
Most of us measure the realities of life according to “time”. Without even realizing it, the context of time directs, defines, and limits almost all our thought patterns. Concepts like the past, the present and the future divide our lives as definitely as a play is divided into three acts: one begins where the previous one ends, until the play is finished. Such is the external world.
However, the clock keeps walking and calendar pages do not control actions in our inner world. When we develop the consciousness that develop and raises self-esteem, we get in touch with … (Continue Reading)
1. Acknowledge your fear and accept it as a specific and particular feature of your personality. Do not try to get rid of it immediately: even if you think you’ve succeded at first, the fear will likely return. The issue here is not to eliminate fear, what we have to do is assimilate fear, understand it, point it out, handle it. Fear vanishes only when it realizes of its inability to distress us anymore.
2. Talk about your fears and share your experiences with others. This way, you will get accustomed to your fear and will handle … (Continue Reading)
The biggest fear is fear itself. No human is without fears; even in the deepest recesses of our souls, some fear is lurking. And this is not bad, quite the opposite. Fears mean limitations of the mind. Just as our body is a limitation of physical matter, our mind also means an unknown territory, a frontier to our capabilities. When these boundaries are not imposed by a disease or a syndrome, that is when it is purely and exclusively a fear. The problem with these limitations is that they may get to function as a constraint. Sometimes fear becomes a … (Continue Reading)
Believing in oneself, in our capabilities, loving ourselves, that’s self-esteem. It does not depend on what other people think about us; it only depends on how (and what) we think about ourselves. People who suffer from low self-esteem (and low self-esteem is a real illness, a disease) are constantly seeking for approval of other people, there in the outside world. Of course everyone wants to be approved, loved and even admired by those around us. But we have to start by loving ourselves, and respecting each other internally.
Be strong. If we always try to impress by pretending … (Continue Reading)
Great, renowned historic characters who shaped the world, and contemporary entrepeneurs who have achieved what they wanted, share a starting point: a big, unrealized dream. Let’s think of Lincoln, Bolívar, Napoleon, Gandhi, or even people we know and who have reached success: at first they were object of a lot of criticism (and perhaps we were very critical at them too.) Great projects, at first, tend to be the object of harsh criticism and censure. It’s precisely because of our beliefs that we condemn, censor and ridicule a lot of our own dreams.
We have to establish a clear … (Continue Reading)
My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose – somehow we win out.
