How to Overcome Shyness By Mike Moore


                             

The one thing that is absolutely vital to overcoming shyness is DESIRE. You must want to, badly.

POSITIVE SELF TALK

To begin the process of overcoming shyness we must begin talking to ourselves about ourselves in a more positive way. Instead of defining ourselves negatively we must define ourselves positively.

Tell yourself that...

* I am equal in dignity to anyone else.

* I have a lot to offer other people.

* People are not my enemies.

* I am intelligent and nice to be with.

* I can do anything I put my mind to.

* I am loveable and capable just the way I am right now.

 

Many times through the day stop and say something like, "Every day, in every way, I am becoming more comfortable speaking with people."

 

REMEMBER... that every person is a unique gift. There is no other person like you on the planet. There has never been another like you. There will never be another like you. So treat yourself like the rare, unique, precious gift that you are.

WHY HUMOR IN THE WORKPLACE

WHY HUMOR IN THE WORKPLACE
by Mike Moore
1. Humor in the workplace reduces stress levels and stress is the number one problem confronting employees today.

2. Laughter boosts morale while stress erodes staff morale. It is in the best interest of any business to invest in the happiness of its employees. Laughter is an effective barometer of just how happy your people are.

3. Keeping things in perspective tends to boost morale and humor helps us keep things in perspective.

4. Workplace humor helps facilitate change. Change is inevitable and people who laugh well and often tend to be more flexible and adaptable.

5. Communication improves when humor is used appropriately. The timely use of humor can get a point across effectively and assists in the process of problem solving.

6. Laughter and humor in the workplace relieve boredom and increase creative energy.

7. Humor builds confidence. When we laugh at ourselves we are less rigid and more spontaneous. We tend to bounce back more quickly when negative things happen. Humor also makes us less fearful of making mistakes and more confident about overcoming setbacks.

8. Laughter and humor promote positive relationships. When you hear a funny story your first impulse is to tell someone and share the laughter. When laughter is shared a natural bonding takes place.

9. Humor promotes happiness and joy. It's good to be alive.

10. Quality relationships are measured by the amount of laughter present. When relationships are good, people laugh a lot. The same applies to businesses. When employees enjoy one another and laugh easily and often, we see performance improve and profits increase.

11. The humor I speak of here must never be based on laughing at someone, racism, sexism, put downs, sarcasm or ridicule. These forms of humor are destructive attempts at making one look good by making another look and feel badly. There is enough good humor to last a lifetime. Just look for it.

THEY WHO LAUGH............LAST.

HOW TO STOP WASTING PRECIOUS TIME by Mike Moore


Twenty four hours a day minus the eight hours we sleep leaves

us with 16 productive hours to accomplish things that need to

be done at home and at work. Of these 16 hours, a lot of time

is wasted due to distractions, interruptions and

disorganization. We just don't manage our

time well.


THE TOP SIX TIME WASTERS


1. Television: We average four hours a day watching

television. If we live to be 72 it works out to 12 solid years

wasted watching TV. This doesn't include time spent on the

internet. SOLUTION? Go on frequent television fasts.


2. Emailing back and forth: Email becomes time consuming when

you consider how often we check it and how frequently we are

involved in sending back and forth messages. A survey was done

by the American Management Association with these results: Of

the 400 business managers polled.....35% use email to

communicate with clients...26% prefer the phone...15% would

rather have face to face meetings. Interesting results when

you consider the time email consumes.


3. Junk mail of the traditional kind. Too much time is wasted

opening and then trashing unwanted mail.


4. Drop in visits: When you are in your office with the door

open you are an open invitation to those with nothing better

to do to drop in for a chat. When they do, they eat up a lot

of your precious time. SOLUTION? Keep your door closed. If you

don't want to close your door arrange

your desk in such a way that people passing by can't see you

and drop in for a visit.


5. Reading every word of every document that crosses your

desk. We are living in the age of information and it seems

that much of it ends up on your desk each day demanding your

attention. If you don't learn how to scan it quickly and

either discard it or place it in your " for further

study" pile you will end up overwhelmed and stressed.


6. Phone calls that are too long and too frequent. Some people

just won't get off the phone and let you get back to work.

SOLUTION? Let people know that it is a bad time and then give

them a better time to call when you can spare a FEW minutes.

Before they call back get an egg timer and put it on your

desk. As soon as their call comes in get the egg timer going

and then see if you are able to bring the conversation to a

conclusion within the three minutes provided by the timer.


The message is clear....TAKE BACK YOUR TIME.
