Caring about others

Today’s  Message:

Lately I have been reading a lot of self development books that involve communication because I mean everyone, I mean unless your an extreme loner (which is fine) communicates. Now aside from some other major factors a re-appearing theme seems to be empathy or in other words caring about others. In fact  I believe that in one of Dale Carnegie books he says if everyone cared about one another and rarely about ourselves than we’d have an almost perfect world.

Today I’m going to talk about how to effectively and genuinely care about others and why it is important. If you apply what I am about to tell you correctly you’ll notice personal and social gains. People will be more apt to want to help you out because they like you.

First thing First

First I’m going to talk about several (but not all) ways to care about people in more genuine and effective way. The first way is general appreciation. Please and this is where most people fail, don’t get this confused with flattery.

Flattery

Flattery is telling someone something they already know or want to hear the problem with this is it can be easily be detected and can often be taken as an insult. Imagine someone flattering you and then asking you for something I mean your not going to instantly dislike them but you’ll sorta resent them for all the kind statements knowing that they only said them to get something. Instead I recommend genuine appreciation.

Genuine Appreciation

Now genuine appreciation means talking about and admiring something that you really find unique or different about them. If you really believe in your statements the’ll come through as believable and you’ll be looked at as sincere.

Sincere Interest

Another good way to show you care about someone is talking about them. This can be as simple as asking them what they are doing or how they are doing. Now I’ll let you in on a secret this statements are so general they often don’t exhibit care but instead exhibit “small talk” or general conversation.

I recommend finding out what they are interested in and what they like to do which may require a little effort or research on your part but work a lot. Once you find something they are passionate about let them go on and on about what they like without ever getting impatient or cutting them off. Even if you don’t get what you intended out of the conversation you’ll be 10x more likely to get it later than at that moment because they’ll really take into account that you listened to them. They’ll also take into account that you care about them.

Other Remarks

Now there is much more that can be said about care and how to treat people but I have highlighted two of the fundamentals. Those again are: Genuine appreciation and sincere interest. I will be posting more about this topic and other related topics until than stay happy.

How to stay Positive among the Negative?

Staying positive among the negative

Introduction

Staying positive can be  challenging even if your in a positive environment. In this post I’m going to share with you how to stay positive no matter where you are or who you are. I’m also going catch you up on what I’ve been doing lately in my life and on this blog.

Now another good post to check out that ties into being positive is how to be confident. I believe that if your more confident it will help you be more positive. It will also make what I am about to tell you more effective.

Now for what I am about to tell you to work you need to really believe in the principles and apply them to your life. Theses principles can be life changing and really have an impact on your life if you let it. Many people might look up “how to be successful” or “How to be wealthy” watch a video than never act on it. Why do what you can do today tomorrow. So when you read this please act and try everything I teach you even if it doesn’t seem to work at first.

Time to Focus

The first step to being positive is belief and continuous belief. Now this is an easy and simple step to follow. but, in some ways this seems vague and you might ask yourself believe what? Well for now I want you to believe in this statement “I am Positive” then repeat several times a day. “I am Positive”. And make sure you truly believe it. Now it seems like a cliche: what ever you believe you can achieve but it’s TRUE! 

And right now I’m going to tell you why it works. Repeating it several times sets it in your subconscious and in your mental atmosphere. When you say “I am positive” your subconscious becomes more positive. You also generally begin believing what your saying if you say it enough. Before long you’ll begin feeling more positive and acting more positive. This method of repeating positive saying is one of the most basic physiological “tricks” of life.

Second Thing

The second thing you can do to stay positive is thinking and saying things positive. Now this might sound similar to the advice I gave you before but it is in fact very different. Before I told you repeating positive things can subconsciously make you feel better. Now I’m telling you re-phrasing how you think and say basic phrases can make you more positive automatically and instantly!

For example a statement as simple as “I could not get to the post office” can be re-phrased to say “I can get to the post office tomorrow”. Rephrasing your words like this will make you and your mind more positive. People will even notice how much more positive you seem.

Third thing

Learn to recognize negativity and expunge it. This requires you to hang around positive people. This requires you to look at the positivity in life rather than the negative. And focus on staying and being positive. This means minimizing negatives or failures or anything that is NOT positive.

Last but not Least

There are plenty of other methods that are far better at staying positive but these methods are the basis and the best for those who have a hard time staying positive. Try these methods, focus, on these methods and think positive.

BONUS

Post and Videos are good at getting you in the right mindset but if you don’t continually get inspired or continue to get advice you could end up reverting or forgetting. So make sure you come back so I can give you even better methods for staying positive, being educated, entertained, and most importantly happy. I’ll be posting inspirational videos soon that are 10x better than this post and will change your life, I promise.

How to avoid Nightmares?

Now after watching that video the question mark in How to avoid nightmares can mean two things. (if you know what I mean)

Now I can’t explain this video or even tell you if this is real or fake but despite that it’s kind of funny. However If you really did want to know how to avoid nightmares well don’t go anywhere you’re still in the right place. I’m going to teach you my personal secret to how to avoid nightmares.

1. Clear your mind- Have a a clear mind when you go to sleep

2. Be tired- Make sure your actually tired a restless and wandering mind could make for a havoc night’s sleep.

3. Avoid Food- Avoid food or sweets before bed, apparently they give you crazy dreams. This could however just be a myth.

4. Be relaxed- Stay Relaxed and think peaceful thoughts

5. Forget- My favorite method that I personally use to avoid nightmares is forgetting. Now I know your thinking, well that doesn’t help. Butt, if you forget you ever had a dream well than isn’t that the same as not having a dream at all.

Now you can do that 1 of 2 ways or maybe you can use both ways(who knows?).

The first method is when you wake up Immediately try organizing yourself and getting your self ready for the next day and don’t ever think about yesterday, your sleep, or anything like that. Just start your day.

The second method is to have an alarm clock especially a distracting one. It doesn’t always have to be loud or strange either. You could have an alarm clock like mines that requires you to do a math problem.

Tell me what you do to avoid nightmares or what you do when you do have one.

How are you doing?

Today’s Message: We often get caught up with the 9 to 5 task and our busy lives that we forget to ask ourselves and others, How are we doing? It is an essential of a question as taking a test to evaluate your performance, because without it would we really know how we are really doing. Today I’d be interested in knowing how people are doing but blog posts don’t exactly work that way but feel free to contact me and tell me.

Instead of trying to collect a group discussion on how people are doing today. I’m going to tell you about the top three events that happened to me in the past week. Including how I started getting paid for blogging.

The first thing good that comes to mind is my increasing popularity on WordPress. You may or may not know how good it feels to get an increasing amount of views that often surpass previous amount of all time best views. It really is a wonderful feeling and I of course have the people who read my Daily Blogs to thank. I hope that I can continue to get an increase in views. I also hope that I keep getting better and keep giving people what they want. Which I of course wouldn’t know what you wanted unless you gave me feedback. So keep commenting and sharing so I can give you my best.

The second best thing that happened to me is the reason I’ll begin vloggiing and posting videos soon. I was able to convince my good Father to buy me a camera. I had to make a presentation and present it to him. He was so impresses by the camera that he went out of his way to get me extra. I originally asked for $200 GOPro but he went ahead and got me the $400 GOpro Black edition-surf, which I think will be phenomenal. He than went ahead and bought accessories with the camera so I’ll be well prepared to start uploading good quality videos.

The third best thing that happened to me recently is I was given the opportunity to MAKE MONEY Blogging from home, online, and automated. It’s a really simple process but words can not explain how great it is or how it works. But I will share the secret to making lots of money blogging just because you read this post. So you should feel fortunate. This really does work its not a scam and I hope you enjoy.

A BREAK for the BETTER :-)

I am not sure how many people consistently follow this blog the numbers seem to get obscured here and there. But if you follow my blog you probably know where this is going. Another apology. It saddens me every time I feel as if I let someone down, it really does. I don’t know what to say except sorry and thanks for sticking around this long to see me come through. Many have kept your side of the bargain by viewing daily and i have not met that demand. However I can say is that’ll I’ll try my hardest to prevent a gap in content from day to day.

While I was away from this blog I did learn a lot of new things. Especially things with marketing. I have a new affiliate if you look around my blog you’ll see a couple of advertisements. But unlike other advertising or affiliates this one is actually one that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE. I do mean CHANGE and I do mean YOU. This program has many benefits, including marketing strategies that superior to anyone I’ve seen before and a program that offers 100% commission if you decide to sell their product. They teach you how to take that 100% commission + superior marketing and turn it into 10k a month after 90 days. It really is as awesome as it seems. For more info click here.

With that being said I am excited to announce that I will so be vlogging and other things on YouTube. I plan to do part of the videos with my brother but overall it will really provide some insight on what the of person I am and hopefully you’ll get to know me better.

If you didn’t click the link before here it is again: http://bit.ly/16HsPqS Don’t miss out on a great opportunity.

The Impressive and Incredible secret to communcication

The Impressive and Incredible secret to communcication

Today’s Message:

Many people don’t know the art of communication but we all talk and communicate. Knowing the art of communication allows us to perfect something most of us do without a second though and often do it poorly. This Guide will hopefully make you a better communicator.

1. The first step to being the best communicator is not in fact talking at all but listening. A person who truly listens and understands what is being said will better understand the situation and be able to respond more effectively  People do not realize nor can I express how important listening is.

2. The second part of a conversation is how to respond. You want to start off with something positive about the person you are addressing. This does two things. It allows you to start of the conversation of a positive note. It also makes you seem less selfish.

A lot of people don’t realize that a conversation that doesn’t start of this way can lead to problems or arguments. People who start off the conversation negatively  with insult, or about themselves can lead to devaluing of what your about to or going to say. If they feel your going to respond negatively or with insult they might cut you off or refuse to listen to what you have to say. If they feel that you are a self centered or have selfish motives they aren’t really as willing to receive you.

3. The third part is how to actually how to end the response. The third part is the easiest part because their isn’t actually any guidelines to how you should say what your saying, aside from the normal. Things like be respectful. The trick though is to end the conversation with yourself. It allows the person to feel less obligated and things to go more settle.

These types of conversation aren’t perfect but they are superior way of communicated. An art and flow to the way we talk. If you try these tips and perfect them.
