How to convince people – give people a reason to follow and trust you | Noozmag

How to convince people – give people a reason to follow and trust you | Noozmag | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

People don’t want more information.
They are up to their eyeballs in information.
They want faith - faith in you, your goals, your #success, in the #story you tell.

 

says Annette Simmons, author of “Whoever Tells the Best Story Wins”.

 

How do we reach that people have faith in us?

 

So easy!

 

If we show us from our best side, are authentic and trustworthy and give people appreciation and love they will respect us, too. What we give comes back to us! The seeds we sow we will harvest one day! Life is a process of giving and taking.

Let's sum it up with a quote from Theodore Roosevelt  "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care"  John C Maxwell has also been given credit for this quote; regardless  you must be a willing to serve others unconditionally!

How to Make a Decision

How to Make a Decision | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Last summer, I found myself in a dilemma to make a decision. Amidst my struggle to find fulfillment from the various jobs, I was offered a regular salary and benefits kind of job. Being offered any type of employment after a particularly long dry spell was fantastic, but I was hung up on the fact that it wasn’t how I pictured it — the pay wasn’t great and the industry was one I never thought I’d be in.

 

I was faced with an important decision: Do I accept the new position and a chance at a little security, or continue searching for something different, something that fit the long laundry list of must-haves I had concocted for my professional life?

 

Besides everything else, I was most terrified about accepting a position that I wouldn’t be happy in. In fact, a fear of not being happy was a place I operated from often, one I knew had succeeded in keeping me from trying new things.

How to Keep Creating a New Habit When You Feel Like Giving Up

How to Keep Creating a New Habit When You Feel Like Giving Up | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Now, creating a new habit isn’t always easy. You often start out all enthusiastic and excited. But since you usually have to keep doing it every day for about 30 days or once a week for a whole lot of weeks to make the habit into something that sticks and feels natural it becomes harder after a while.

7 Tips for Naming Your Business

7 Tips for Naming Your Business | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
Choosing the right name for your business can have a lasting impact when it comes to propelling a business to success. Here are tips in choosing the right one.

 

Entrepreneurs fret over packaging and a host of other details as they get started, and then leave one of the most important aspects as an afterthought.

 

The sad truth is that the right name can sometimes make all the difference when it comes to propelling a business to success, rather than just slogging on.

 

Consider this: Would you like "Patagonian toothfish" on your plate tonight for dinner? Hmm… not so much? Ok what about "Chilean Sea Bass?" That's much better, right? Or another example is how Marion Morrison put on a cowboy hat, slung on a six-shooter and became "John Wayne."

Learn to Aim Higher

Learn to Aim Higher | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Everyone, at some point in their life, has dreamed of accomplishing something extraordinary. Who hasn’t dreamed of being wealthy and successful doing work they love to do? Who hasn’t pictured themselves in a happy and loving relationship?

 

We may dream big dreams and have great aspirations, but unfortunately our dreams often remain just that – dreams. As time passes those dreams and aspirations can fade away if we let them.

 

It’s a sad turn of events when we allow this to happens . Instead of our life being an exciting adventure as we pursue our dreams, we can find ourselves caught up in the humdrum of living from day-to-day with nothing extraordinary to look forward to. But you know what, it doesn’t need to be that way. Life can be so much better. Once we learn how to aim higher and then follow through, amazing things begin to happen.

Three Management Gurus Explain Management

Three Management Gurus Explain Management | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

A great post. I think a lot of manager should read and applied these advice. Unfortunately we live in a world where the human side is often forget, and the message in in this post is strong to change that situation. [note mg]

 

Michael Hammer in his book "Agenda" talks about modern managers driven by an economy that is more than ever controlled by the customer. "Managers are rediscovering that business is about execution."

 

He reminds us of the seriousness of watching the cash flow, fulfilling (rather than just getting) orders and the need to go beyond product ideas and focus more on product development.

 

The role of managers is to help their company "devise products and services that satisfy customers and then create and deliver them in a profitable way that satisfies shareholders"...

How to Build the Muscle of Change

How to Build the Muscle of Change | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

When you try to make a change in your life, create a new habit, set a resolution … are you usually good at it, or does the change fail after 2-3 weeks?

 

Some people are better at it than others because they’ve learned some simple strategies for changing, but also because they’ve built up their change muscle.

 

What’s a change muscle? It’s the muscle we use for creating changes in our lives, and like our physical muscles, it is weak if you haven’t trained it.

 

I started training my change muscle in 2005, when it was weak and I could never make any lasting changes. I felt helpless, and didn’t know what to do. I felt like I couldn’t ever make changes.

 

But I’ve learned in the years since that the change muscle is like other muscles: you might be weak at first, but you get stronger with regular training...

How To Save You From Yourself

How To Save You From Yourself | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

First we make our habits, then our habits make us. Charles C. Noble

 

It’s not unusual for intelligent people to get themselves stuck in a deep rut in life. By rut, I mean a somewhat extended period of time flooded with low motivation, poor moods, negative thinking patterns, and little or no productivity.

 

A rut like this can be extremely difficult to get out of. I’ve been there several times, so I know that rediscovering productivity and finding the motivation to delve into anything even remotely challenging can seem nearly impossible. However, we must eventually come to our senses and realize that there’s no point in going through life feeling unmotivated, tired, stressed out, and unhealthy. Misery is, after all, a choice.

3 Ways To Prepare For Adversity

3 Ways To Prepare For Adversity | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

When the going gets tough, we tend to seek out those people—and things—that give us the strength to be our best self. We yearn for the feeling that we’ve turned our lives around and are headed for better days.


Looking for the upside takes our mind off the down times. A positive attitude allows us forget, even for a while, the hardships that face us in many areas of our life.

 

Those times of contentment and happiness are wonderful. We need to spend time with them so when times are harder, we can remember the strength they gave us. But to expect those times to last is not realistic.

Simpler Thinking: 5 Powerful Habits That Work For Me

Simpler Thinking: 5 Powerful Habits That Work For Me | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

”Chi Wen Tzu always thought three times before taking action. Twice would have been quite enough.” Confucius


“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life.” Eckhart Tolle

 

One of my biggest problems used to be that I thought too much. I overthought any little problem until it became a bigger and scarier thing in my mind. I overthought positive things until they didn’t seem to be that positive anymore. I overanalyzed and deconstructed things until the happiness that comes from just being in a moment and enjoying it fell apart.

5 Steps to Thinking Outside of the Box

5 Steps to Thinking Outside of the Box | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
How do people think outside of the proverbial box? They know how to view things more expansively. Here's how.

 

A few years back our litigation team was faced with a seemingly insurmountable task: how to defend our client’s trademark rights against a Fortune 500 company with a massive litigation budget. They had the facts on their side. Moreover, they had money. Worst of all, they had a gaggle of lawyers that just made the case down right unpleasant. In spite of this, as luck would have it, they were missing one very crucial thing that they had never learned in law school. Something big firm life had failed to teach them. Quite simply, they were limited in their thinking to that which was rather than that which could be.

 

Looking beyond conventional defense methods, we deconstructed every element of the case until we discovered a plan to turn the tables...

Developing Charisma - Increasing Your Influence in the Workplace

Developing Charisma - Increasing Your Influence in the Workplace | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Have you ever worked with a very charismatic leader?


If so, then it's likely that almost everyone in the organization liked, trusted, and admired this person.
People listened when she talked, colleagues supported her ideas, and talented people wanted to join her team. In short, everyone wanted to be around this person!

 

Charisma is something that many people believe you're born with. However, this isn't the case – you can become more charismatic, and we'll explore how you can develop charisma in this article

Michel CEZON's curator insight, March 2, 12:28 PM

Charisma is a collection of traits and behaviors that help you appeal to other people. Charismatic people are often successful, and people are naturally drawn to them. They retain the best talent in their teams, and people listen to their ideas.

Because charisma is a collection of behaviors, you can learn it. Work on developing empathy, self-confidence, and assertiveness. Be aware of what your body language is saying, and do your best to give people a genuine smile when you're around them.

Also, make sure that you use your charisma the right way: don't use it to influence someone to do something that is against his or her own best interests.

Want to change an old habit? You probably should: One study determined that over 40% of the "decisions" we make every day aren't really decisions.

 

They're habits.

 

Much of the time we don't really make decisions. We do what we've done before, and that makes us less productive, less effective, less healthy and fit—less everything—than we could be.

Self-Acceptance Lessons from Ralph Waldo Emerson

Self-Acceptance Lessons from Ralph Waldo Emerson | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else, is the greatest accomplishment.” Ralph Waldo Emerson, one of the greatest American essayists, poets, and thinkers, clearly understood the importance of self-acceptance. He believed in searching for truth from within. Back in the early days of the Transcendental movement, Emerson had experienced firsthand both the benefits and drawbacks of going against mainstream culture and society. Emerson’s clear message was that a self-directed path is the only path that can lead to true happiness and contentment.


The same message applies even in modern times. We are constantly bombarded by ideas that try to make us something else. We are told how to be, who we should be like, how to live, what our beliefs ought to be and what we should wear… and the list goes on.

20 Practical Ways to Kick Fear in the Butt

20 Practical Ways to Kick Fear in the Butt | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Hands down, the most common reason I hear from my coaching clients for why they can’t accomplish something is fear.


They may not call it fear directly, but that’s what it is. They are afraid of some perceived bad outcome if they attempt the thing they really want.

 

And the irony is that the one thing standing between them and what they want in life isn’t really substantive. It is just a feeling, usually without any basis in reality. Most fears are that way — feelings without substance.

Who the Hell are You? 10 Ways to Step out from Behind the Mask

Who the Hell are You? 10 Ways to Step out from Behind the Mask | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Who the hell are you? Are you for real? That’s the message I got when I had forgotten my twitter password for the umpteenth time. And it got me thinking (something I have been known to do on occasions). Do we really know who we are?


Next time you pass by a mirror, just stay there for a while and look at the person staring back at you. Is that you or an image of you? This is how you present yourself to the world and yet does your inner self match your outer self?

 

Once upon a long time ago, there was a man who liked to fool around and play jokes on everyone. He used to put on an extraordinary mask that spanned an array of emotions from laughing and crying to grimacing. He took great pleasure in playing the fool and frightening everyone. Some people laughed at his antics, some people cried. All he cared about was the adrenalin rush and excitement that their reactions gave him.
