Many among us react based on perception. Perception is opinion or feeling. It is not a reality. When you react to someone with perception and not on reality, there are chances that perceptions can be wrong.

once reacted, words cannot be taken back. Even expressing sorry is not enough. Hurt feeling linger for longer time. This can even spoil relation.

So be aware of full reality before you answer. Let their be response not reaction. Positive response has positive impact.

Simple concept is quite useful in life in all stages of life and in all interpersonal interactions.

The number 1 principle in life for success in any area of your life is " IRREVERSIBLE COMMITMENT."

No one can succeed unless they really want to succeed.

Here wanting is not just a WISH or Desire. Irreversible Commitment means a desire to succeed and a willingness to do whatever it takes to Succeed.

It is only such people who succeed in their chosen field.

Whenever you pursue any goal, there are bound to be challenges, difficulties, obstacles, hardships, etc. In the face of these challenges, it is only a Determined Soul who do not give up and always find out ways however difficult the goal may be. It is such person who achieves success at last.

E.g

Ratan Tata and Nano Car

Mahatma Gandhi and Freedom of India

Dhoni and Cricket

Milkha Singh

The list can go on and on.

So the number 1 principle for Success is " Irreversible Commitment" also called Determination

Human Beings are Social Beings. We cannot live alone. We are dependent on other people for all our needs. We live in a group in the home, offices, society, clubs, etc.

While living with people, there are times when we may not like other person's behaviour, attitude, performance, etc. e.g. spouse not coming on time, the child no behaving properly, salesperson making poor sales, etc. where it becomes important to communicate our thoughts and feelings about the same.

People usually adopt two approaches in above situations:

1. KEEP QUIET: They keep their thoughts and feelings in their heart as they fear that if they criticise or speak their thoughts and feelings, the other person may feel bad and their relationship will get spoiled. But such approach does not work as other person does not know what you are feeling or thinking and he/she may continue to act as before which does not work as the problem is not resolved.

2. BLAST, SHOUT or SCOLD: Many people who are bold and aggressive. They speak on the face of other people what they are feeling or thinking. And that other person must change their ways which is good but many times such bold and straightforward communication can spoil the relations. As it may hurt the ego of other person and can lead to fights, conflicts, arguments and physical fight also. Hence even this approach is not the best approach.

So what to do? If you keep quiet, there is a problem and if you are very straight then also there is a problem.

So the solution lies in the middle path, i.e. Communicate but in a responsible way.

Such communication requires you to understand human behaviour, human psychology, Communication principles and what is called " Speak to Peace and Harmony" System which consists of 5 steps as under:

1. Create Empowering Context
2. Create Connection
3. Express without blaming
4. Make Request
5. End on a positive note.

By using Speak to Peace and Harmony system, many of my students have improved their relationship with parents, husband and wife, employees, etc. thereby saving their marriage, jobs and relationships.

Many engineering students have a question ‘what additional skill they should acquire’.

Yes. These days competition has increased. It has become difficult for fresh engineers to get a job. Additional skills add value to resume. But just acquiring a number of skills is not right.

In my opinion during engineering, soft skills are beneficial. Basic computer proficiency is a must as all works go on in the computer. Autocad also helps in any industry.

But many skills should be pursued later when you settle in a job. If you settle in design, then cad can cae is useful. If you are in project management scheduling software like MS Project or Primavera are helpful. Structural design software Stadpro is useful for those going in structural design.

Basic computer languages do help computer engineers.

In your final year engineering, you are not sure which department or which company you are going to work for.

So wait. Get a job, see kind of work you do, and then learn additional skills. During engineering better to focus on learning basics in subjects. Basics help throughout life in your career. In meetings wittiness count. Quick responses are possible if you are clear in your fundamentals.

Learn and grasp the knowledge in front of you and do not just run for some courses which may not be useful for you later.

Importance of Voice in Effective Presentation Skills

Shankar Iyer

Having done MBA from a reputed institute and with over 25 years of work experience in India & abroad...

Whenever there is a presentation, the audience looks at the 'Presenter' and make a mental gauging/perception of the person ..!

Whenever there is a presentation, the audience looks at the 'Presenter' and make a mental gauging/perception of the person ..! Which is not correct but as human beings we all get influenced by what we see first.

A presenter has to be neatly dressed ( nothing flashy or elaborate) and has to have the confident body language which makes the audience look forward to the presentation.

Once the presentation starts, the voice and voice modulation of the presenter plays a big role in the success of the presentation. Many times essence of the presentation is lost just because of the presenter's voice nervous and shaky before a large audience.

This nervousness is the result of the presenter being "nervy " before an audience, the voice sounding different through the speaker system which is not the norm in the day to day communications..!

Hence to overcome this gap, a person should try practising reading LOUDLY ( newspapers, articles etc.) with clear pronunciations, pauses ( where ever necessary) in order for the brain and nervous system to get used to the loud voice..!!

The above point works out very well if practised sincerely..! Good Luck.

Brain stores information via eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and touch (skin).  So coming to your question, foreign languages, we learn languages when we are exposed to it continuously to an extent that it enters the subconscious data center.  So since other language scripts are not available in our brain as we are not exposed to it, we will not be able to execute such languages.  So the best way to learn a language is by theoretically getting the scripts inside our mind and then practicing it regularly, not fearing about erring, 'coz erring is a part of success.  Watching movies with subtitles can also help to understand lip movement and pronunciation.  Hope that answers your question, good luck!

Because you have to tell something about yourself and not the resume. This is a common mistake most of us make. Next time whenever they ask tell me something about yourself please focus on topics which are not mentioned on the resume because interviewers can easily go through your resume.. tell them like what kind guy you are.. something about your learning curve.. how comfortable you are working with a team and your long term plan on association with organization

Nikita ... I teach Communication and in that I teach English too. The difference in the way I teach is first of all there is no grammar classes whatsoever. Secondly I completely discourage reading Newspapers. third is I advice you NOT to speak to another person in English. ALL True but with conditions. 1. Newspapers nowadays have mastered TRP english and TRP titles. All their content nearly 95% is on crime , violence and related. You will learn all the worng things. Long long and even longer back the Newspaper English was definitely a great way to learn . NO MORE. 2. Speaking to someone means the other has to know BETTER English than YOU. AAAND he/she must be empathetic towards your desire to learn the language. I have an online Spoken English Course you may want to explore it. read less
