How to transcend self doubt and become confident?

THE POWER OF SELF-CONFIDENCE

Let us talk about confidence. It is one skill that can make you hugely successful. Confidence is a fundamental building block of your success. Confidence is like the trunk of the tree and the branches are an offshoot of that tree. Confidence is about accepting who you are and being comfortable with that reality. It is about making a decision defined by a choice of standing tall in your own space. How to transcend self doubt and become confident?

How Happiness leads to greater level of Productivity and Profits?

Productivity and its Connection to Happiness

New research suggests we work more effectively, creatively, and collaboratively when we’re happy at work. A recent study by economists at the University of Warwick found that happiness led to a 12% spike in productivity, while unhappy workers proved 10% less productive. As the research team put it, “We find that human happiness has large and positive causal effects on productivity. Positive emotions appear to invigorate human beings.”

When we are happy we become more positive and have more energy to deal with what life throws at us. Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage, has found that the brain works much better when a person is feeling positive. At those times, individuals tend to be more creative and better at solving problems. And additional research has shown that when workers are happy they’re more effective collaborators working toward common goals. As Achor sees it, the incentive for organizations is clear-cut—”happiness leads to greater levels of profits” for companies that take the right steps.

Dreaming the Impossible

Follow Your Dreams

This happened sometime in the year 1992. Sitting in my tiny apartment I realized I had no money on me to make the next meal. What was I to do? I collected all the old newspapers in the house and called the Kabbadiwala and sold the newspapers and remember distinctly with that money bought 500gms of vegetables and cooked them.

But even in that situation I refused to believe that my life was going to be like that.   

Even at that time I knew that it is not going to be the story of my life. I told myself I want to be a trainer and a writer and inspire and motivate others to live their best life. I told myself the situation I was in was a passing phase and I cannot let go of my dreams. So I did have to make lot of changes and adjustments and worked very hard. Slowly but surely things started to change and my life started to move in the direction of my dreams. Dreaming the Impossible
