- Public Speaking
Public speaking is a skill, and it is an asset that will last for years. One may feel uncomfortable doing it initially because it is a skill that can’t be learned in single day. With persistence, hard-work and consistency, you can become perfect in it, and it will surely pay off in the future.
- Managing your time
Being busy DOESN’T mean effective! We are busier than any other generation in last 300-400 years. Challenge your schedule and ask yourself if you’re effective – are you mostly focusing on the things you “have” to do or the things you’re “Created” to do?
- Having Empathy
One can be the most punctual, disciplined, active, brilliant and even wealthy individual in the world, but if he doesn’t care for others or empathize with other humans, then you are basically nothing but a typical sociopath”.
- Positive Self-talk or affirmation
It doesn’t matter what others think and talk about you, but what actually matters is what you think of yourself. It takes time to build that level of self-confidence and ability to believe in yourself when nobody around you does.
- Being honest with yourself
Whatever you may be doing, you must be true and brutally honest with yourself, especially in business. Always know that you compete with no one, run your own race. Know what you know and also be aware of what you don’t know. Just focus on being the best at what you do and the rest will follow.
- Stop Whining
We must learn to stop whining about what will happen, what will never happen, what we have, what will never happen, what somebody did or didn’t do. Practice a life of no whining whatever the reason maybe, no more criticizing and no more complaining of any sort.
- Focus on the present moment
Being in present moment is the point where one can have the greatest control, where one will feel the most at ease and there only happiness nourishes and flourishes. There is a super tight connection between that connects happiness and the ability to live in present moment. Staying present is a key skill of having your mind in the present moment, not in the past, not in the future, but right in the moment.
- Being Consistent
Life is a journey; success is not a onetime action but a continuous process. There is not time to mourn over your past failures or setbacks because this only wastes your time, but just pick up yourself up, believe and keep moving ahead. Success is never the destination, but the process of consistency is a journey.
