Employbility Skills

Employbility skills Success is purely subjective. It can mean different things to different people. To some it might mean accumulation of enormous health, to others it could suggest recognition,good health and good family. Riches, recognition, good health. etc are universally accepted parameter of success. Any well accomplished task could be desribed as success. Whatever be the area of success,personality attributes that lead to it remains indentical. Strong motivation, mental toughness,positivity of outlook are indispensable qualities required by all piligrims of success.The Road to Success is always under construction. Your mind is like an acre of land. You have to care for it like a farmer does for better results. You have to sow it(with ideas),till it(with readings),fertilize it(with visits to counter parts),pesticide it(to prevent it from becoming inanimate)to get the best crop of results from it. Do you know 95% of the people have greater potential inthemselves than they realize? The great genius and qualities are hidden within them-is the fact well known to the experts. By nature, the brain is the supreme force that runs the activities of a man. But the man’s brain is not a unit.Instead the brain consists of approximately fortyone ‘faculties’ or brain areas such as perception( it is the medium through which your brain is stored with impressions), judgment, Reason, Memory,Imagination, Will ,Association, Habit, Constructiveness, Caution, Concentration and so on. But We fail to actively use all our faculties, that is the drawback in most of us. But in many cases, it is the lack of planning that makes all the differences. Planning involves thinkg ahead. Planning is working out the modalities of the future actions based on past experiences and data, and then forecasting their implications.A Successful person had rightly said “ If I had 8 hours to chop a tree,I would spend 6 hours sharpening my axe”. Its very true. You should think for yourself and act for yourself. You must be utterly and wholly self-reliant in thought and action. Put clearly in your mindthat you do not need to develope any new powers. You already have within you all the powers you need to win and hold real success. That is all you need to do to become the dominant, powerful and highly successful individual. All the great personalities of the world have started their work with small ideas.They became successful by consistently developing their ideas and working on them. Your success wholly depends on one thing- that is your state of mind. If you go about your work in a faint hearted(Suppose if I fail attitude)you will fanil sure enough,for you are invting failure. No success principle can overcome te negative state of mind. You must have aWILL to WIN before you really win. You should strive for excellence not for perfection. Success people are not ten times smarter than the people who fail. They may be better by a nose or smile but the rewards are ten times higher.We don’t need to improve 1000% in any one area. All we need to improve 1% in 1000 different areas, which is a lot easier. Success is not measured by how high we go up in life but by how many times we bounce back when we fall down. It is the bounce back ability that determines success. To get an idea out of your mind,you’ve first got to put facts in. Then in due course your mind will pay you interest on the facts in the form of ideas. This world is full of men who have woderful ideas for the other’s men’s businness, but not for their own. POSITIVE ATTITUDE Failure is the highway to success.For a positive thinker , it can be a stepping stone to success. To a negative thinker it can be a stumbling block. You must develop positive attitude for having positive ideas and positive thinking. People with positive attitude are very easy to recognize. They are caring, confident,patient and humble. They have high expectations of themselves and others. They aniticipate positive outcomes. A person with positive attitude is like a fruit of all seasons. He is always welcome. On the other side people with negative attitude have a hard time keeping friendships,jobs,marriage and relationships. (Who are ur best friends)Walt Disney faced many rejections for his cartoons before making mickey mouse. Thomas Alva Edison was partially deaf,had a little schooling,he at the age of 64 lost his factory which was worth a few million dol lars to fire. It was having very little insurance. Edison watched his life time effort go in smoke and said “there is great value in disaster. All our mistakes are burnt up. Thank God we can start anew” Inspite of disaster, three weeks later he invented the Phonograph. What an attitude! Do you know Thomas Edison failed approximately 10,000 times while he was working on the light bulb.Bethoven was told that he had no talent for music,but he gave some of the best music to the world. Bill Gates a collage drop out became richest man of the worldsetting up Microsoft. To solve any problem avoid general thinking. In solving you problem- no matter what it is – the first thing to do is to take a constructive view of your present condition. Look for the good in it instead of bad. Think of its strong points instead of weak points. The only way to get a spark orflash out of your mind is to think constructively. Your Attitude determines how you look at setbacks. We need to learn to become victors but not victims.Fear and dought short circuit the mind. Its all your way of thinking which makes you a positive or negative thinker. Without being too technical the brain may be decribed as being in two halves connected by a cable of nerve fibres. Each half deals with a different form of activity. The left side deals with the more scientific activities such as logic, reasoning, deduction, analysis. The right side deals with artistic activities such as music,imagination,colour,art. Problem analysis is a left sided activity but finding an appropriate solution can be a right sided activity.These two sides of the brain creates distinct thinking styles: Convergent and Divergent. Convergent thinking is always trying to narrow the focus down towards one solution. It is deductive thinking , logical and sequential. Divergent thinking is trying to break out,to diverge from an existing pattern. He is not bound to logic but can take conceptual leads to new standing points to consider problems from a different prospective. So for create your own oppurtnities start thinking creatively.

That table layout is appropriate for the level of audience participating in the presentation.

This spreads your eye contact around in the audience. Remember voice is a very delicate instrument, you must use your voice to the extent of its performance.Vary pace and volume of your voice to make your delivery more interesting. Have you noticed carefully the TV newscaster, how he or she varies the voice, movement of head, mouth and hands while presenting the news. You must use similar technique to make your presentation really impressive. Dont’s for effective presentation: Don’t rattle the loose change in your pocket, dont smoke, or chew paan or chewing gum while making your presentation. stop for a while if an aero plane, car or a noisy train passes by during your presentation.
