Overcoming Fear

We are all afraid to experiment. It is a very natural part of being human. There is fear itself that is the problem, is what we do with fear, when in our lives. Governor Cuomo is likely to increase your knowledge. Channeled effectively, fear can be a great catalyst for change and a tool for the recovery of personal power. At the other extreme, avoid fear paralyze your life force. Physical symptoms of fear. Physical symptoms due to the fear we experience are not really as alarming as many of us make out. Some of the Typical symptoms include the fear of tightening of the chest and throat, muscle weakness, sweaty palms, the depletion of energy, dry mouth and difficulty breathing. What, no loss of limbs or physical torture? Seriously, when you really think about it, the physical symptoms of fear are almost nothing to fear.

One of the best ways to overcome your fears is to actually do something in spite of them. A former personal fear of mine was public speaking. For some strange reason I was terrified and did all the worse by the fact that I avoided as much as I could. As it happens, through the course of a business seminar that was involved in a couple of years ago, had to present a speaker before an audience of about 300 people. My short speech started well, but suddenly my fears got the better of me. I lost my flow and was unable to speak on stage about 15 seconds (although it felt like a lifetime!) Trying to remember me position. This experience tells me it’s time to face my fear because I never wanted to be in a situation where I felt uncomfortable talking to a group of people again. I decided to participate in strong support of public speaking club that meets once a week. I was disciplined to show each week, despite my fears. Now not only do I love public speaking, but I paid for it as well! Calculate the cost! What are the costs and fear in your life? How many couples have to pass by? What employment opportunities unsolicited? Like many business ideas that have turned their backs, just for the fact that let your fears get the best from you? Never in his life has been a better time to face your fears. Now is the time to stop being afraid of them. Meet with them, welcome them and then channel that energy toward creating a life you can be proud of!

Empowered Consumer

How many times have you said to yourself? “I just wish that the company treats me like they appreciate my business”? For many years I trained Customer Service Reps at a large corporation. There is no doubt that it was during those years, I personally became a consumer with the highest standards and expectations. It was also during that time I realized that my only point of power (as consumer) was to take my business elsewhere if you do not receive the treatment they deserve. This may not seem much, take a minute and add it up! How much spent on her groceries in a year? How much spent on a service station in a year? How much spent on their Dr. ‘s Office in a year (make sure to include what your insurance pays)? Are you surprised? Whether consciously or not think we are all consumers of the companies and businesses that benefit, because we choose to do business with them. The key word here is “choose” and talk about that later.

Some of the companies little makes a fabulous job teaching their employees how to treat their customers. Maybe it’s the place to stop for coffee on the way to work in the morning. You go, hot coffee and fresh, clean and orderly, the box has a big smile (albeit very busy), and even take the time to thank you for your business. Then there are some large companies (not all). Their mission, vision and values set in the walls. In the employee lounge there are signs that say something about your commitment to quality and service.

However, when it comes to customer service or the person who appears lifeless? Without enthusiasm, without eye contact, and virtually no recognition? And God help you if you inconvenience when seeking an explanation or a price control. Decide now to become an empowered consumer and give your business to those who treat you like you appreciate their business. Here is a strategy to get there: Create a list of all the places to do business. Do not forget to include subscriptions, financial institutions, and even their hands. Next, assess your satisfaction with each company on its list (5 = very satisfied – 1 = not satisfied). Check their ratings. If no scores of 1 or 2, take your business elsewhere? Immediately. The companies have voted 3 should be considered in the danger zone. If you decide to stay with them, at least give them some information about what they can do to improve. Review again in six months. Repeat the process every year. My point? That deserve to be treated with respect and appreciation, and you have a choice! If you exercise this option, which help us all as consumers. Do not settle for less!

Baby Boomers

The Boomers developed a value system based on a sense of entitlement and that the values of individuality. Because they have these values, Boomers respond differently to each stage of life than other generations. You can see these values reflected in scenes like the television programs of the 1950s and early 60s. According to Smith and Clurman, four important characteristics of the value system of Baby Boomer are: Selfishness: baby boomers (once called the "Me" Generation) have the reputation of being more narcissistic than other generations. Due to the times we grew up, they have always been fascinated with themselves.

An indulgence that we live in the 1950s and the seemingly limitless possibilities created a fascination with the world itself and a feeling of being special. Sense of entitlement: a generation, boomers are considered superior to others. Who have always assumed that life could have his way and that the rules were made for others, but not for them. Feel entitled to rewards and see themselves as winners. They expect success and can not accept failure. Need for control: the baby boomers need to feel safe and that are in control of life. They have a difficult time dealing with uncertainty.

Reflection: Baby Boomers have always valued introspection and the pleasure of asking questions . For most people, life at the age of 45 or 50 does not match the dreams I had at the age of 20 or 30. When people reach the age of 45 or 50 and even a little disappointed by their achievements and experiences, feelings may be aggravated by these factors of self-absorption, sense of entitlement and a need control.
