Communication Skills – Using Communication Theory to Improve Your Success

Describes communication theory and how you can use it to improve your communication skills and your success with professional and personal relationships.

Communication skills is another basic field that every entrepreneur should master. Even more, communication skills are required for every human being in order to get something from the others. People have been communicating for the past thousands of years. But the way they do it and the theory behind it have not changed that much during that time. Unfortunately, most people do not take time to get familiar with the concept and to study the way people exchange information.

Communication theory is a part of information theory that studies how information is transferred between two groups of humans. Like in any other scientific study, the process is simplified and includes only two actors (sender and receiver). They transfer a single message between themselves and it travels through a medium.

Improving your communication skills could lead to more successful career and relationships.

Positive Thinking – How to Rewire Your Brain and Stay Positive

Positive thinking teaches you how to be aware of your thoughts and influence them in order to view the world as a good place full of opportunities.

Positive thinking means the conscious choice to be happy and positive. Happiness is not a condition of the mind, or a goal, or a dream, it is a choice that you must make every day. When you wake up in the morning you have several choices: to be happy, to be sad or to be in between. Most of you make that choice unconsciously and this leads to questionable results.

Positive thinking can be reasserted by seemingly mundane choices in your life: the movies you watch, the songs you listen to, the books you read, the people you hang out with. It can help you be healthier, more productive and ultimately happier. Yet for most of the people it is hard to put optimism fist.

Negative thinking on the other hand is very easy to achieve. The human mind has a strange tendency to get pulled into negativity and self-criticism. Once in there, it could be very hard for you to pull yourself out of it. Your self-esteem and self-confidence suffer when you dwell on the negative things that others say about you, or that you think about yourself.

Practicing Discipline – The Ultimate Daily Routine for Entrepreneurs

Practicing discipline and a daily routine is very important in order to get enough sleep and have enough energy to remain productive for the whole day.

Everybody is struggling to get their day organized and optimized. You are all stretched between being an employee (or entrepreneur), a husband, a parent, a sibling and a child. And you also need to set aside time for yourself, pursuing education, fulfillment, relaxation and achievement. And on top of everything else and all your responsibilities, you have to find time to exercise and sleep. Practicing discipline can help you get hold of all those tasks.

The key skills that I have found so far in my quest for perfection, is parallelization and organization. I believe that the best way to accomplish everything that you have to do in a day, is to do tasks in parallel. And the second most important task is to organize your day in advance so that you plan time for everything.

Personal Environment – How to Model Your Inner Circle

Personal environment improvement through modelling your inner circle will teach how to review and model your closest friends in order to reach your goals.

Personal environment means the group of you and your closest friends – aslo called inner circle. Modelling your inner circle (or letting go of certain friends) can be a rather controversial topic. Many people will describe it as cruel, bad or just unacceptable. Others would say that you are only taking advantage of your friends. But I believe that say you are a product of your closes friends.

Your inner circle can keep you at your current level forever or it can propel you in space. After all, your closest friends listen to your ideas and share their ideas with you. You reach out to them for advise and they reach out to you with the requests. You recommend books to your inner circle and you read the books they recommend. If you are lucky enough you might also be brave enough to start a company together, or they can recommend you to join their companies.
