30 Remarkable Things In Life That You Don’t Realize

30 Remarkable Things In Life That You Don’t Realize

There are many remarkable things in life that go unnoticed and can change our normal life dramatically. Understanding and considering these hidden things not only allows us to experience the world in a different fashion, but provides us the vision to identify the realities that are unfolding in our surroundings. In other words, identifying these remarkable things in life can lead us to an achievement, a great win and pleasure in life.

So pay attention on the activities in your life. Each day you can either remorse or celebrate; it is your choice. Here are 30 remarkable things in life.

1. Pursue and work through life’s great challenges

Great challenges make life interesting. It does not matter what is going to take place; always give your best and smile. You can never enjoy your life if you don’t enjoy your challenges.

2. Experience the freedom of acceptance

The key to happiness and peace is accepting every situation in your life. Start accepting yourself with paying consideration to all those superb abilities and qualities that make you who you are. It is about being open to everything in life, knowing that everything has a value whether you like it or not.

3. Sincerely appreciate life

Appreciate life, even when it’s not perfect. Happiness does not come with the things we desire, but an appreciation for what we have. Always try to remain positive; you will find something to be thankful for.

4. Walk in your own shoes

We all face abnormal situations in our life and we all are strange in some way. What sets you apart might give an impression of a liability or problem, but you don’t need to be embarrassed. These are the things that will make you grow prosperously.

5. Listen to your inner voice

Generally your mind yearns longer to accept what your heart is suggesting. Listening intuitively will always lead you down the right track.

6. Align what you do with who you are

Make the rest of your life the best of your life. Your life will become pleasant and happier when you are in alignment with your higher Self, and your body reflects this. Everything falls on progress and you feel satisfied.

7. Express your ideas, perspectives and skills

Shout out your unique ideas and make a difference in the world. If you want to be different from the world than you must be brave enough to demonstrate it.

8. Design your own life, your own way

It does not matter how you live, your life is your own. You have the right to spend your life doing the things you love to do. Live YOUR dreams and be sure YOU aren’t the one who is dissatisfied in the end.

9. Work hard on something you like

Toil becomes simple once your work becomes your passion. Never undervalue the worth of finding passion in your work.

10. Live your dreams

Always try to live every single moment of your life and give a fair chance to your dreams. A dream can never come true unless you won’t give up and offer an effort.

11. Reflect on your courage

When you are nervous and terrified in a difficult situation, but you take the next step in any case, that shows the bravery inside you as a person.

12. Conquer fear

Fear is a sentiment, not a statement. To increase power and self-confidence, you must do the things what you are afraid to do. Dare to bounce yourself.

13. Be courageous enough to grow and evolve

It takes courage to cultivate and become someone you really want to be. Don’t be afraid of the change happening to you. You might lose something worthy, but you might also gain something pronounced.

14. Patience will finally pay off

Patience is not the capability to hold your fire, but how you will react and how strongly you are eager to work while you’re waiting for your work to pay back.

15. Make the impossible possible

In most scenarios, impossible is an opinion or judgment. Almost everything is possible if you are passionate about it and have got enough time and enough courage to do any task.

16. Find reasons to impress yourself

Spend less effort to influence others and more time to impress yourself. Scramble a peak to see the world, not so the world can see you.

17. Stand up for yourself

Mostly we get hurt, not due to the torture or violence of others, but due to our own silence. You should stand up for yourself and make an impression of the illusion of superiority.

18. Connections make you a better person

Having a few loyal friends is better than have more friends in numbers. Keep a close and strong connection with those people who make you better, and cherish each instant of your time together.

19. Know deep down that you truly matter to someone else

One day you will be just a memory to some people. To live in the minds of the people forever, do your best to be a Manifest.

20. Intimately and truly love

The more intimate you are, the less innocuous you feel and the more valuable is your relationship. True love is about how much you actually love each other every day.

21. Follow through with your promises

If there is no commitment in a relationship, there are only empty promises and hopes – with no future plans or results.  Remember, commitment needs loyalty and a promise to be with each other in every odd situation.

22. Help someone who needs your kindness

Those who are toughest to love commonly need your help the most. So treat each person with compassion, even those who are insolent.

23. Know you did the right thing

Real honesty is doing the right thing, knowing that not even one person will know whether you did it or not.

24. Compromise with someone special

Sometimes we have to behave against our principles, not because we are in the wrong direction, but because we value our relationship more than our vanity.

25. Experience the freedom of letting go

Forgetting your past and living the current moment is your first step toward contentment. So start over again every day and build a solid groundwork.

26. Become a parent

When you are a mother or father, you will discover hidden strengths inside you and concealed power of dealing with fears.

27. Grow through failure

Remember, determination of doing a task defines a person, not the result of the task. Failure is an opportunity to learn from your mistakes and rise again, better than before.

28. Don’t give up

Don’t give up, keep moving and keep fighting. Sometimes you have to face the worst to get the best.

29. Try exciting new beginnings

Every story has an end, however in life every ending is just a new beginning. Consider every day, every task, any challenge as a new opportunity.

30. Experience the nimble feeling of being a beginner

Remember there is no one jump to becoming perfect or great. Always try to give your best and learn until you know better.  When you have learned better, do better.

Easily Misunderstood by Others? 6 Barriers You Should Overcome to Make Communication Less Frustrating

How often have you said something simple, only to have the person who you said this to misunderstand it or twist the meaning completely around? Nodding your head in affirmative? Then this means that you are being unclear in your communication.

Communication should be simple, right? It’s all about two people or more talking and explaining something to the other. The problem lies in the talking itself, somehow we end up being unclear, and our words, attitude or even the way of talking becomes a barrier in communication, most of the times unknowingly. We give you six common barriers to communication, and how to get past them; for you to actually say what you mean, and or the other person to understand it as well…

The 6 Walls You Need to Break Down to Make Communication Effective

Think about it this way, a simple phrase like “what do you mean” can be said in many different ways and each different way would end up “communicating” something else entirely. Scream it at the other person, and the perception would be anger. Whisper this is someone’s ear and others may take it as if you were plotting something. Say it in another language, and no one gets what you mean at all, if they don’t speak it… This is what we mean when we say that talking or saying something that’s clear in your head, many not mean that you have successfully communicated it across to your intended audience – thus what you say and how, where and why you said it – at times become barriers to communication.[1]

Perceptual Barrier

The moment you say something in a confrontational, sarcastic, angry or emotional tone, you have set up perceptual barriers to communication. The other person or people to whom you are trying to communicate your point get the message that you are disinterested in what you are saying and sort of turn a deaf ear. In effect, you are yelling your point across to person who might as well be deaf![2]

Advertising

The problem: When you have a tone that’s not particularly positive, a body language that denotes your own disinterest in the situation and let your own stereotypes and misgivings enter the conversation via the way you talk and gesture, the other person perceives what you saying an entirely different manner than say if you said the same while smiling and catching their gaze.

The solution: Start the conversation on a positive note, and don’t let what you think color your tone, gestures of body language. Maintain eye contact with your audience, and smile openly and wholeheartedly…

Attitudinal Barrier

Some people, if you would excuse the language, are simply badass and in general are unable to form relationships or even a common point of communication with others, due to their habit of thinking to highly or too lowly of them. They basically have an attitude problem – since they hold themselves in high esteem, they are unable to form genuine lines of communication with anyone. The same is true if they think too little of themselves as well.[3]

The problem: If anyone at work, or even in your family, tends to roam around with a superior air – anything they say is likely to be taken by you and the others with a pinch, or even a bag of salt. Simply because whenever they talk, the first thing to come out of it is their condescending attitude. And in case there’s someone with an inferiority complex, their incessant self-pity forms barriers to communication.

Advertising

The solution: Use simple words and an encouraging smile to communicate effectively – and stick to constructive criticism, and not criticism because you are a perfectionist. If you see someone doing a good job, let them know, and disregard the thought that you could have done it better. It’s their job so measure them by industry standards and not your own.

Language Barrier

This is perhaps the commonest and the most inadvertent of barriers to communication. Using big words, too much of technical jargon or even using just the wrong language at the incorrect or inopportune time can lead to a loss or misinterpretation of communication. It may have sounded right in your head and to your ears as well, but if sounded gobbledygook to the others, the purpose is lost.

The problem: Say you are trying to explain a process to the newbies and end up using every technical word and industry jargon that you knew – your communication has failed if the newbie understood zilch. You have to, without sounding patronizing, explain things to someone in the simplest language they understand instead of the most complex that you do.

The solution: Simplify things for the other person to understand you, and understand it well. Think about it this way: if you are trying to explain something scientific to a child, you tone it down to their thinking capacity, without “dumbing” anything down in the process.[4]

Emotional Barrier

Sometimes, we hesitate in opening our mouths, for fear of putting our foot in it! Other times, our emotional state is so fragile that we keep it and our lips zipped tightly together lest we explode. This is the time that our emotions become barriers to communication.[5]

The problem: Say you had a fight at home and are on a slow boil, muttering, in your head, about the injustice of it all. At this time, you have to give someone a dressing down over their work performance. You are likely to transfer at least part of your angst to the conversation then, and talk about unfairness in general, leaving the other person stymied about what you actually meant!

The solution: Remove your emotions and feelings to a personal space, and talk to the other person as you normally would. Treat any phobias or fears that you have and nip them in the bud so that they don’t become a problem. And remember, no one is perfect.

Cultural Barrier

Sometimes, being in an ever-shrinking world means that inadvertently, rules can make cultures clash and cultural clashes can turn into barriers to communication. The idea is to make your point across without hurting anyone’s cultural or religious sentiments.

Advertising

The problem: There are so many ways culture clashes can happen during communication and with cultural clashes; it’s not always about ethnicity. A non-smoker may have problems with smokers taking breaks; an older boss may have issues with younger staff using the Internet too much.

The solution: Communicate only what is necessary to get the point across – and eave your personal sentiments or feelings out of it. Try to be accommodative of the other’s viewpoint, and in case you still need to work it out, do it one to one, to avoid making a spectacle of the other person’s beliefs.[6]

Gender Barrier

Finally, it’s about Men from Mars and Women from Venus. Sometimes, men don’t understand women and women don’t get men – and this gender gap throws barriers in communication. Women tend to take conflict to their graves, literally, while men can move on instantly. Women rely on intuition, men on logic – so inherently, gender becomes a big block in successful communication.[7]

The problem: A male boss may inadvertently rub his female subordinates the wrong way with anti-feminism innuendoes, or even have problems with women taking too many family leaves. Similarly, women sometimes let their emotions get the better of them, something a male audience can’t relate to.

The solution: Talk to people like people – don’t think or classify them into genders and then talk accordingly. Don’t make comments or innuendos that are gender biased – you don’t have to come across as an MCP or as a bra-burning feminist either. Keep gender out of it.

And remember, the key to successful communication is simply being open, making eye contact and smiling intermittently. The battle is usually half won when you say what you mean in simple, straightforward words and keep your emotions out of it.
