This world is a beautiful place to live in, but at the same time we often are faced with hardships and issues that make us wonder if we are capable of handling them. In certain cases we are dragged down by people around us who make us feel that we are unable to do what we are planning. But if you really think about it, the only limit they are forcing upon your thoughts and goals is their own.

A person can manage a lot more if he or she just focuses on their own strengths, because otherwise there is no chance of success and one will never manage anything.

I read a cute story few years back which struck me very well.

Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs who arranged a running competition.
The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.

A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants….
The race began….

Honestly: No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.

You heard statements such as: “Oh, WAY too difficult!!”

“They will NEVER make it to the top.”

The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one.

Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher and higher….
The crowd continued to yell, “It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!”
More tiny frogs got tired and gave up….

But ONE continued higher and higher and higher….

This one wouldn’t give up!

At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the one tiny frog who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!

THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?
A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal?

It turned out….

That the winner was DEAF!!!!

How wonderful :) So my friends.. be deaf once in a while of all negativity that stops you, there is nothing that can hold you back. If you believe in an idea, go for it!

No matter what we say or do the thing about first impression has been a thing that will never leave us alone. So why not talk about that? Since everyone is affected by it and the first impression tag “tags” along with the person for a long long time, let’s see if we can see as to how one can present a better first impression.

  1. Be friendly : This works wonders. Meet and greet the person with a firm hand-shake. And remember to “Smile”, meet as if its a very good friend, but obviously over-doing it will just make it look fake.
  2. Body language : Don’t turn AWAY from the person when talking. Or don’t cross your arms or legs in the way as if you are uncomfy talking to them, and obviously don’t stare at them as if they got something on their face!
  3. Good posture : A good posture, standing position, is a good sign that you are comfy with yourself and the person you are talking to. Now you don’t want to be bending as if you are looking left and talking from the right corner of your lip to them.. would you like it if I did that to you?
  4. Speak clearly : Some people mumble jumble a lot of their sentences when they are nervous. So follow the first tip. When you see them as a friend, you will smile and be quite clear as to what you got to say.
  5. Be positive : This is very important. I am sure you wouldn’t say that a person has left a good first impression if the first thing they hear from you is how much you hate your boss, your parents, your siblings, your job, your life.. !
