11 Days To End Of Year

School of Life piece of advise:
" Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice"

Even if the world around you is crashing, when you pick a call, speak with all amount of enthusiasm that you can muster.

Never infect people with gloom and disaster with your calls
Life Secret and Tip:
" Come up with a life mantra.
You know, like “Carpe Diem” or “Live life to the fullest,” but not as cliché. Make it something that really hits home with you so that you will actually stick to it. Make sure it’ not so specific that it rarely applies but also not so general that it’s not personal."


Motivational Quote on Success

" Don't just think about the things you have done, think about the things you haven't done but you want to do!"

Key Point of Life

Don't judge people by their relatives.

Psychological Life Hack

People usually focus on the emotion and not on the subject.

This is very useful in public speaking but also in building rapport with an acquaintance.

Whenever you introduce yourself to new people, most probably they have already heard what you are about to say. Well that’s not a problem.

Even if you want to talk about the most boring topic in the world, make sure of one thing: Always try to evoke emotions.

From my experience the 3 emotions that you want to evoke are: • Excitement • Laughter: Everyone likes to laugh • Intrigue: Leave a little mystery so the other person has to invest energy to hear more.

Don’t be purposely distant, but avoid verbal diarrhea.

There are many techniques to turn a boring conversation into an exciting and intriguing one, but here are a couple of my favorites:
Pause: A lot of the time when we want to keep someone’s attention, we tend to talk really fast, but this subcommunicates neediness and nervousness. A well-placed pause can create tension that makes your words have more gravitas.

Tone and Inflection: No one finds monotone exciting. Switch up your tone of voice from deep for declarative statements, to high inflection when you want to leave them guessing.

Paint pictures and compose symphonies in their mind with sensory details: When telling a story, take the person you’re talking to on an emotional journey by describing the colors, sounds, textures, tastes, smells, and how they made you feel. This will cause their mirror-neurons to fire off, making it easier for them to imagine actually being there with you.

So if you want to be memorable, focus on the emotion behind the words. People may forget what you say, but they will never forget how you make them feel.
