Hey everyone!

Some of the key questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

 

  • Progress associated with pursuit of our goals and dreams in life - why is it important to understand how progress or lack thereof may have a direct effect on our desire to go after that what we truly want?
  • What is the main inhibitor of progress? Why many of us give up before we reach the finish line, before we accomplish that what we had started, something that we cared about before? What is different now? Is it less important to us now than it was few days, weeks, months, or even years ago?
  • Wil you stop pursuing your lifetime goal or dream if/when you do not see an immediate progress or result, or will you keep going, keep trying, keep working and making perhaps small but determined steps forward until you eventually reach and accomplish your one thing that you've been thinking and dreaming about?
  • Why so many of us stop half way from the finish line? What factors impact our desire and willingness to keep trying, keep fighting for what we want and hope to achieve? Do we change or do we simply lose hope and give up too soon?

Some of the key questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

 

  • Why is it important? What can someone do if they find themselves in a situation or position that they are not familiar with or don't have the expert level of knowledge required
  • How does one acquire new and/or develop existing stills, and close knowledge gap that might have existed?
  • Exploring self-learning as another form of personal education and growth throughout life, while continuously searching for new opportunities to learn and continue to grow personally and professionally - why is this important based on goals and objections that we set and work towards?
  • Are you happy where you are now? Do you want more? Do you want to continue to work on improving yourself each day? If so, then self-guided continuous learning is a must
  • Stop creating excuses for your own inability to motivate and push yourself to learn something new every day, resources are there and available for you to look for them and use the new knowledge acquired to move yourself forward
  • If you are committed in learning and growing and growing yourself on continuous basis then you will find an opportunity, if you are not ready and if you are satisfied where you are and don't want anything more then you will find and excuse - we choose how we want for our future to look
  • How can one develop experience needed to secure the dream job or to take the next step into a higher role along the existing career path?
  • Ways to create and live continuous education lifestyle

Some of the main questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

 

  • Can anyone become more assertive when the situation calls for it? What may be stopping us to express our opinions openly when necessary, is that fear of being misunderstood or too direct?
  • Why do we continue to hide our assertive personality inside of us, even when we know that we have something to say and are confident that we are absolutely right?
  • What do we fail to recognize when we are in the middle of presentation of ideas and opinions on the subject at hand, even though it is such an easy and hard thing to remember?
  • What do we tend to focus on more in the middle of the constructive argument when we are not assertive, what do we think and care the most about? Are we being consumed by others' thoughts and opinions that we forget about our own?
  • 'It's not what you say but how you say it' - recommend vs. tell approach in problem solving and solution finding. Collaboration is one of the critical parts of any productive negotiation

​Some of the main questions and points that I cover in this episode are:

 

  • Have you ever asked yourself a question - "how am I being perceived by others?" "what do other people think about me, my attitude, my character, my actions?" If not, then now is the time to reflect and look inside yourself
  • Don't you want to make sure people see you for who you really are, vs. who they may perceive you as?
  • Do you really want to show others - your employees, your business clients, new people you meet how much you care about your business and personal relationships? I hope the answer for you is YES, because for me it certainly is.
  • We are often perceived for not who we are inside, and not for our true genuine intentions, but strictly for immediate shell that we present, an outside business image of ourselves, which often pushes people away from us, and then we wonder why some people do not want to do business with us or even interact with us daily. The answer lies in you, and it is your responsibility to uncover your true reality to be viewed for who you really are
