Your Will Power Is More Powerful Than You Think

Willpower has been termed ‘the greatest human strength’, and rightly so…as it is the factor behind even single noteworthy human achievement down the centuries! With willpower, the impossible can be made possible…without this all important quality, everything you have worked for can be lost in an instant. By harnessing your willpower, and exercising self control and practical wisdom, you can work toward your personal and professional goals and truly enjoy the quality of life that you deserve. Even if you have always felt that you lack this all important quality, do not feel disheartened. By consciously trying to develop willpower, you can in fact achieve miracles. Through regular exercises and self- discipline, willpower can be cultivated over the years. Self-care can ensure that you have the willpower to get things done, on time and every time. To ensure career success through willpower, it is important that you have a roadmap charted out. Chalk out the professional goals you would like to achieve in your life. Set targets, and put down dates by which you would like to have reached each career milestone. Some goals may need some work- such as undertaking a course of study- or achieving a certain level of experience. You can also map out your weaknesses, and formulate ways to turn them around. For instance, if you wish to be a leader, but are not good at communication, there are workshops you can attend to skill up as required. A series of small changes can turn around your life and lead to huge positive changes in your career. You could take the help of training experts to work out the certification courses that could help you along the way. One of your goals could be to increase your earning capabilities. Some credentials such as the PMP certification in India have been proven to give a 42% salary hike to certified individuals. You can list out your goal of completing the course of study leading to the PMP exam, and successfully clearing the exam. Willpower plays an important role in this endeavour – you should be religious in studying every day, despite any other pressures you may face in your life. Make resolutions – and stick to them. Your resolution may be as simple as clearing your email inbox every day. Piling up incomplete work never helps, and once you fall behind it is very hard to catch up. Staying on top of your daily work requires a certain amount of willpower. Levels of failure and success in your career, leadership capabilities, the ability to be a good team player, and the ability to get tasks completed on time are all directly related to your willpower, or the lack of it! A person who lacks this all important quality is certainly doomed to a life of constant failures and inadequacies. In fact, a lack of mental strength and willpower can affect every aspect of your life- not just your career alone. Taking the first few steps to develop your mental faculties can be difficult, especially if you are faced with toxic situations, peer pressure or stress caused by family or friends. However, you must make a comprehensive life plan – keep at it and you will surely succeed. Make sure you start to consciously work on developing your personal and professional skills through willpower, and you could create a sea-change in your entire life!

8 Strategies To Engage Your Audience & Keep Them Interested

You’re a motivational speaker and a good one. You’re invited to speak at numerous sales conferences all over the country. It’s tiring work but you love it. Connecting with an audience, getting the desired reaction, gives you a big kick. That said, you don’t always connect that easily and sometimes you suffer from speaker fatigue – or perhaps your audience is suffering from listener fatigue? To avoid boredom in a presentation or speech, here’s some useful advice to help you engage an audience. Why should they listen? If your audience doesn’t have an obvious reason to be interested, then you need to tell them why they should listen. This can be awkward because some audiences are not there voluntarily. The answer? Tell them why they should care. If you’re speaking about sales and marketing, then tell the audience about a few sales people who overcame extraordinary obstacles and made it to the top. Tell them how their lives were changed. Excite them! Stick to your subject Talk only about those things your audience is expecting to hear. This may sound obvious, but there are speakers who end up going off on a tangent and talking about something completely different. Some years ago, I witnessed a speaker making this mistake. He was due to talk about email marketing, but for some reason he started talking about Search Engine Optimisation for websites. He began by telling his 100-strong audience that he wasn’t going to talk about email marketing but rather about SEO. He then asked how many audience members had a website, and watched as only 5 put up their hands. So, did he go back to speaking about email marketing? No, he didn’t, and 95 people had to sit through something they had no interest in. Make sure your presentation has ‘flow’ If your presentation is compelling and audience members are hanging on your every word, then you’re in a state of ‘flow’. For flow to occur, the task of listening should not be too easy or too hard. A presentation presents a challenge to audience members – they are required to think, and you need to find the right level of challenge for your particular audience. When a speaker wades through a series of bullet points, there’s no challenge and audiences get bored very quickly. Conversely, if the speaker rattles through the details of a complicated flow chart without explaining what it’s about, the challenge will be too great. A good tip is to ask yourself a few times during your presentation, ‘Is this too easy or too hard? ‘Change’ is a way to grab attention Because people’s concentration levels wander, you need to keep their attention. The best way to do this is to change what’s happening during your presentation. Try some of these: Change from slides to a flipchart and back again Change from listening to you to discussing a topic with the colleague next to them Change from sitting around tables to standing around a flipchart Show a short video Employ audience response systems Use a long silence before and after an important statement Tell stories Every presentation should include a sprinkling of anecdotes. People are hard-wired to listen to stories and perk up the minute you say, ‘Let me tell you a story about…’ But make sure the stories reinforce the points you’re making. Take frequent breaks You need to let an audience take frequent breaks, sometimes for just one or two minutes so they can refresh their drinks and walk around. Moving is a very effective way of keeping people attentive. Get them moving It’s estimated that audiences only pay attention for around 8 minutes at a time, so every so often get them to do some easy physical exercise like walking around the room in a conga line … with you leading them. Not only is this fun, but it will pump some more energy into everyone. Let your audience talk By letting audience members talk, they’ll feel valued. It also gives you chance to take a short break, mentally. Ask members of the audience some direct questions. In this way, you’ll be able to find out how they feel about your topic and the content of your presentation.

7 Ways Education Powers a Better World

The human race has made significant progress in the past 7 million years. From being cave dwelling Neanderthals to now being jet-setting futurists, we have come a long way.  Today, as we gear up to become a planet of 9 billion people, are we better off than we were millenniums ago? Of course access to the bare necessities of life has never been easier. Shelter electricity, food, and hygiene have considerably improved the quality of our lives. But the one essential element that separates us from the dumb, that helps create better societies, develop virtues and gives us a sense of freedom—is Education and many around the world are still deprived of it. The classic definition of education is ”the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university”. But education is much more than that. It is a process of continuous learning which can be acquired anywhere at any time and any age. It is the fundamental right of every citizen because it promotes empowerment and ensures development benefits. Education can be used for the upliftment of society since it helps elevate the social and economic conditions in the marginalized sections of society. Education makes us better citizens by teaching us how to conduct ourselves through life by following rules and regulations and giving us a sense of conscience. It make us more confident to go out there and achieve things. Many governments across the world have recognized the importance of education as a tool to enhance progress and make the world a better place. Let us see how it achieves that: Education spreads awareness: Blind faith and superstitions are what bog down society. People misled by false beliefs do more harm than good to society. Education helps us question, gives us an analytical mind and helps us reject superstitions. An educated mind asks for logic and scientific reasoning behind all actions. It helps us stand up against wrong and for the right: Education helps lower crime rate. That’s because the educated can differentiate between what’s right and what’s wrong. Research has shown that increasing the high school completion rate by just 1 percent for all men ages 20-60 would save the U.S. up to $1.4 billion per year in reduced costs from crime. This is true for other regions as well. It helps progress: Better education opens up a host of opportunities and this is especially relevant in the times we live in where technology and education ensure that opportunities are not bound by geography. It gives us a healthier lifestyle: Better educated people tend to live longer and have better lifestyles. For example research conducted in central European OECD countries have shown that a 30-year-old tertiary-educated man can expect to live eight years longer than a 30-year-old man who has not completed upper secondary education. While a tertiary-educated woman can expect to live four years longer than a woman without an upper secondary education. Helps us to be more productive: It is a fact well known that the more degrees you have, better would be your economic performance. There is a deep connection between education and productivity and in this age where there is competition at every turn, education is what will help an industry and subsequently a nation, to flourish. It helps us connect across borders: Digital education has helped achieve this. Education has given students from across borders opportunities to connect and communicate and work towards building a better future and a better world. For example, a professor in America can help inspire a student in Afghanistan to study and travel the world, help herself and a whole generation after her, to lead a better life. It gives empowerment: Education helps turn weakness into strength. Education gives us the confidence to stand for ourselves. It improves our decision making capabilities, makes us mobile and gives us access to social networks. Many researches have proven that in countries where women are subjected to gender bias, education helped them stand up against marital violence, improved their decision making capabilities and helped them take charge of their own lives. To quote Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, “books and our pens, they are the most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. Education is the only solution. Education first.”

Advantages Of Virtual Training Over Classroom Training

In recent times there has been a significant increase in the numbers of students who are opting to do courses online, rather than attending a face-to-face classroom course. With more and more students opting to take a dip in virtual waters, let’s look at why this new education paradigm is working so well! A virtual classroom serves to bring together students from around the world together online in a highly interactive virtual platform. This greatly reduces the travel, time, and expense involved in traditional brick and mortar classrooms offering teaching/training programs. In times of tight budgets, online education comes as a panacea. Trainers can lead live, interactive classes from their own homes- cutting travel costs and saving on time for both student and teacher alike. These reduced expenses translate to lower fees, without compromising on training quality. Online classes can be recorded and revisited time and again- which proves very helpful indeed in reinforcing end-user training concepts. Any class which is missed can be checked online, as the recordings will be available till the duration of the course (or in many cases lifetime access is provided, which is even more invaluable). This also means that students can pay complete attention during the class and do not need to take down notes while the teacher is teaching. The subject matter can be laid out in a rich and creative manner, which helps the student to have higher retention of the course content. Small videos, applets and graphics help to explain concepts in a very interesting manner, ensuring that every student is able to thoroughly comprehend the subject. Virtual classes are led by subject matter experts live, in real time. This means that students can ask questions using a headset or a chat window, and get their doubts clarified, just like in a traditional classroom. Questions can be lined up and answered at intervals, without interrupting the teacher’s flow of thought. There is no difference in the level of interaction- in fact distractions are significantly reduced because of this mode of teaching. Online classrooms offer flexibility and convenience that is beyond compare. It is very easy to squeeze in an online class into your busy daily schedule, as you can simply log in from wherever you are- home, office, internet cafe, or even while you are travelling. Compare this with a traditional classroom where you have to plan ahead and account for travel time up and down, through congested roads, to attend the class in person. The tools available for virtual learning – such as the White Board- make it very simple for the teacher to mimic a face-to-face class, and visually draw out abstract concepts using graphics or diagrams. Even a crude diagram can help to emphasize the trainer’s point. Online classrooms melt down barriers of geography and virtually shrink the world. A teacher in Australia or Canada, for instance, could be sharing his or her experiences with students scattered across different continents! Learning becomes truly global, and all physical barriers to participation are removed with this form of anywhere learning. The explosive growth of virtual training seems to have been happening for all the right reasons!  This, therefore, is undeniably where the future of education is headed.
