Communication has it’s own kind of priority in one’s life. A person have the power to how to communicate, to how to make influencing conversation, and to how to use the right word at the right time. It’s not only consist of these features but the most important is fluency. Let’s see how to make an influencive and fluent convo?


  • Maintain strong eye contact ~ maintaining steady eye contact during a conversation establishes trust and let’s the listener know that you’re serious.
  • Familiarise yourself with body language ~ understanding non-verbal cues will vastly improve your communication skills. Be able to gauge your audience based on their body language.
  • Never ‘ over talk ‘ ~ become an effective listener and never talk over another person during communication. This is a huge issue for many during communication. Avoid it completely.
  • Replace your local language with English ~ firstly, I do prefer to watch English Movies rather than in your local language. Read as much as you can because reading makes your argument strong. Try to use english words in your daily conversation. Whatever you are doing make sure to enroll these on regular basis. Remember fluency needs practice.

In this era of digital world, you should do some kind of creative things. The three or four years of graduation is not sufficient to maintain your curriculum vitae. If you learn something new, you can easily add up this to your resume. Creative work includes a variety, the only thing is to choose wisely according to your interest. You can make mandala artwork, sketching, writing, illustrations, abstract art, gardening, memes creation, doodle, cartoon, solving puzzles, graphic designing, quotes writing, content writing,…….and much more. Doing such things makes you feel joy, relaxed, and yes it’s a very easy way to meditate because at that time you only concentrate on a particular work which you love to do. And if you are uninterested in any of these things then you should have to acquire it.

Difference Between Leadership And Management

Leadership

&

Management

The very known terms which have been studied and debated a lot ( i.e. management and leadership ). But when we distinguish between them two that time we have very unclear and long definitions which reduces the clarity.

But here we have a very crispy and clear definition by Peter F. Drucker ~

Management is doing things right; leadership is doing right things.

Both terms are important in its own way, but still though leadership always came on top and then after management.

Leadership in our personal lives should guide us what we should do with our lives. To identify the unique contribution that we have to make to the society. Thereafter management is important to do whatever we do , we do it well.

Eventually, Everything Connects

When you want something all the universe conspires to help you achieve it.

~ Paulo Coelho

Being an Indian, I must memorize the famous dialogue of SRK ~

Kehte hain agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho … to puri kainaat usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai

( It is saying that if you really desire something from the heart … then the whole universe will work towards getting you that.)


So as the Paulo Coelho said there is actually a very unique relationship between the two, you and the universe. This relationship can’t be seen by anyone. Atleast you can dream for something, dreaming is the foremost thing for the fulfillment of your desire. After you would see everything connects eventually, based on how badly you desire for it.

“Eventually, Everything Connects.”

Effect of Thought on Circumstances

~ James Allen

Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bad fruit. Circumstances do not make a man, They just reveal him.
                                           ~ James Allen

A man’s may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed-seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.

I got this book from my sister’s friend and yes, you can complete it in your first reading. Just from 50 pages, you would grasp a lot. Keep building as well as sharing your positive, good and encouraging thoughts.

Vatika

Everything is unique in itself

Garden is the shelter where my soul relieve with the touch of the clean air, with the chirrup of birds, with the aroma of blossoms. This is the reason behind my revived strength, my absolved mind and the reason where my heart rejoices. It is a place where I go every morning to listen, listen to the voices of small creatures, listen to the voices of plants, listen to the voices of blowing wind and listen to the voice within me. The garden nourishes my being more than I put in it to nourish the plants. Everything is unique in itself. So as this garden (Vatika).

Be kind

~In a world where you can be anything, be kind.

Bill Gates was asked if there was someone richer than him. His reply will melt your heart. Back when Bill Gates was the richest man on earth, someone asked him ” Is there anyone richer than you in the world”?

Bill Gates replied ” Yes there’s a person who is richer than me. It was when I wasn’t rich or famous. I was at the New York airport and I saw a newspaper vendor.

” I wanted to buy one newspaper and I realized I didn’t have change. So, I left the idea of buying and returned it to the vendor. I told him of not having the change.

“The vendor said ‘I’m giving you this for free’, on this insistence I took the newspaper”

“Coincidentally, after two to three months, I landed on the same airport and again I was short of change to buy a newspaper. The vendor offered me the newspaper again. I refused and said I can’t take it as I don’t have change today too.

” He said, ‘you can take it, I’m sharing this from my profit. I won’t be at a loss’. I took the newspaper.

“After 19years, I became famous and known by people. Suddenly I remembered that vendor. I began searching for him. After one and a half month, I found him.

“I asked him, ‘do you know me’? He said, ‘Yes, you’re Bill Gates’.

” I asked him again, ‘Do you remember once you gave me free newspapers?’ The vendor said, ‘Yes I remember, I gave you twice’.

“I said, ‘I want to repay that help you offered me that time. Whatever you want in life, tell me, I shall fulfill it’.

” He said, ‘Sir, don’t you think by doing so, you won’t be able to match my help?’

“I asked, ‘why?. He said ‘I helped you when I was a poor newspaper vendor but you are trying to help me now when you have become richest man in the world, how can your help match mine?

” That day, I realized the newspaper vendor was richer than I was. Because he didn’t wait to become rich to help someone”

People need to understand that the truly rich are those who possess a rich heart rather than lots of money. Kindness makes you the most beautiful person in the world, no matter what you look like”.
