How I Want To Be Seen Group Writing Project

How I Want To Be Seen Group Writing Project

For some time I have been toying with the idea of organising a Blogging Group Writing Project under the Personal Development auspices. I believe now is the right time to start one.

I am calling this Group Writing Project: How I Want To Be Seen.

Here are the rules:

1. In a new post, write and explain how you want to be seen by people. What are the things you want to be known for? The real stuff you want people to see in you. Bloggers are men and women of the world! Therefore, what do you want the world to know you for? Tell the world what you want people to perceive in you as an individual of some qualities. Blogging under Personal Development is about sharing. Please be free to share these inner thoughts with people so that they can benefit from you.

2. In the introductory paragraph of your post explain how you come by the How I Want To Be Seen Writing Project and put a link and/or trackback to this post, so that readers will know the rules, and for me to compile the full list of all participants later.

3. Remember to put a link or trackback to the blogger who tagged you, to enable your readers follow the discussion round. Also remember to mail the bloggers you tag.

4. You are allowed to tag as many bloggers as you wish. A project of this nature will help in their exposure. You’re doing them as well as yourself a world of good.

5. Remember, your post could be a wish or a desire for perfection, or real accomplishments. So, aim for the best. However, if your inner negative thought told you that you’re unrealistic, tell your inner negative thought to go to blazes.

6. Let’s keep the ball rolling, as the world sits back to watch and learn few Self Development lessons from us.

When you write down your How I Want To Be Seen (especially when you send them out to the Universe as desires and wishes) there is a strong believe that it is far more likely to be achieved. This topic might sound a little nutty, but remember who may read your intentions and offer support.

As For Me: How I Want To Be Seen.

I want to be seen as Abu Aremu, who is sharing his little knowledge of Personal Development (under Positive Self Talk) to inspire people to think positively about themselves, about people around them and about things around them.

A person that is devoting his time to inspire, better changes and creating a happier, more successful and more resourceful you. A person, who is spending a fair share of his resources to educate the people and making the world a better place to live in, through love, compassion and selflessness.

Using Positive Self Talk To Overcome Your Fear Of Public Speaking

Using Positive Self Talk To Overcome Your Fear Of Public Speaking

Positive Self Talk is a conscious effort of using one’s mind to replace negative thoughts and beliefs with positive thoughts and beliefs, thereby using one’s mind to influence one’s performances positively.

Positive Self Talk is a tool which could be used by anyone to help him in attaining his desires and goals and therefore could be a key to any good performances, including Public Speaking.

The greatest obstacle to any aspiring Public Speaker is fear. This fear varies from one person to the other and the symptoms include sweating, shaking nervously, stuttering and sometimes in extreme cases, fainting out of the innate fear of being the center of attraction. These situations are results of Negative Self Talk.

Cases have shown that out of fear, most people who actually face this problem will treat this problem with the avoidance of any occasions where they would have to make a Public Speech. This is another exhibition of Negative Self Talk, and could lead to a life of recluse.

Applications of Positive Self Talk to treat this problem, on the other hand, provideds an opportunity to make a meaningful difference in life and in the lives of other people, to overcome this fear of Public Speaking.

Positive Self Talk, as a tool, will provide the opportunity to discover how to overcome and eliminate the fear of Public Speaking. Do you know that most people who fear Public Speaking are troubled about being perceived as bad speaker or labelled in a negative way?

Positive Self Talk is an activity of the mind, while fear is also an activity of the mind. Therefore both are controllable by the mind. Overcoming your fear of Public Speaking isn’t as difficult as most people make it seem. You neither need to spend all your time preparing for the speech, nor a ton of money getting your way out of Speaking Publicly. All you need to do is put your mind in the proper shape. And this is easily acheived with Positive Self Talk.

Your first step in using Positive Self Talk to overcome your fear of Public Speaking is to maintain Positive Mental Atttitude. This is to put your mind at ease and have a positive mind that all will be well.

In other words, remove from your mind all negative or fearful thoughts and feelings. Put out all shortcomings youn think you have and feelings that might hamper your performances. Putting your mind at ease with Positive Self Talk would remove your anxieties. These anxieties, if not removed, are the stimulators of fear and nervousness which preceed your Public Speaking.

As I mentioned earlier, fear of Speaking Publicly is a result of Negative Mental Attitude. It is damaging to your self-esteem especially if it is allowed to be part of your life for a long time. Using your mind to build a high esteem will give you self-confidence to the level it is supposed to be and enable you to speak publicly anywhere.

Boost Your Self Confidence With Positive Self Talk

Boost Your Self Confidence With Positive Self Talk

It is pathetic to see how lack of Positive Self Talk has affected so many people, both young and old. Many people are afraid to speak their mind in public. Many students who know the answer to questions teachers ask in school prefer to keep quiet because they feel too embarrassed to raise their hands. And more people dread participating in group activities because they do not want to be the centre of attention. Many more would rather die than express their opinion in public.

Lack of self confidence is one of the products of Negative Self Talk, and the only cure for it is Positive Self Talk. Lack of confidence could hamper one’s life seriously. It is saddening to notice that the cure for these lapses is readily available and without any cost. Yet many people have overlooked it. Positive Self Talk is an endowment from our Creator. It is freely available to everyone. And it is a powerful tool, which if adequately utilized would provide the solutions to most problems confronting human beings.

Lack of Positive Self talk has prevented many people from getting the jobs of their choice, despite the fact that they possess all the requisite qualifications. Some people have secured the right career, but they could not go far because they do not have the right mindset to climb the ladder to the pinnacle of their career.

Have you got a career or just a job? Could you get a better job if you had the confidence to push yourself? Self promotion is not a crime! If you have talent or skills, you shouldn’t be afraid to use them. How often have you known successful people who were no cleverer than you? Had no more talent than you. Possessed no more ability than you. But what did they think of themself.

Do you want to stand up and be counted? Do you want to be able to say “I can do that”. Yes! that’s Positive self Talk. You have all the chances to take what should be yours. And nothing could stop you, except your own mind!

Do you ever find yourself thinking: “I should have done” or “I should have said” when it’s too late. Negative Self Talk is talking or thinking low of yourself.

One of the secrets of successful poeple is the constant application of Positive Self Talk. You too could have all the things you desire in life if you develop the right frame of mind by practising Positive self Talk. It has been acclaimed world-wide as a potent tool for achieving all our desires.

Changing your attitude can get you to your goals more quickly, and it can also get you there in style, enjoying the ride more fully. This ShortCut is for everyone, because even if you have a great attitude already, it could always be better. It doesn’t matter if you have a little goal or a massive dream, a small annoyance or a huge problem, shifting to Positive Self Talk will help, and it might just radically transform your situation.
