Why You May Not Be Truly Happy With Your Life

Published

on

Follow Your Passion

I have 100’s of people reaching out to me each and every month, asking me the same question over and over again. The question is…… “Joel, Why I am not happy with my life, what should I do?”

I have to admit, I had the same question as you many, many years ago, until one day, I decided to open my mind and actually take in the advice that so many of the most successful people out there were already telling us. There is a pattern, a formula, an answer and it’s out there. It has been shared to us all by billionaires, millionaires, celebrities and winners. It’s no secret, and I’m sure you have heard it a million times before, but there is a reason why you hear it over and over again, because it works, and how it works is easy when you are willing to make a move.

To be truly happy in life you have to:

 

FOLLOW YOUR PASSION!

 

It’s really that simple. The hard part for most is finding their passion, and I believe that can only be accomplished through a series of experimentations.

Life is made up of a million daily experiences. Each and every second we are experiencing movement around us, things changing, growing, dying and multiplying, we are all part of an ever evolving experience which we call “Life“.

We are all unique, yet a majority of us run through similar protocols and systems, and the thing is (and most people don’t know this), “that you can’t understand a system until you try to change it”, and that takes me back to the importance of experimenting.

How do you know for sure that you wouldn’t be able to start your own successful business when you have never written down a plan or even looked into it?

Or that you won’t be able to get a job at one of your favorite companies if you never even apply?

You need to start experimenting, you need to open your eyes, ears and start using your hands, whatever you have to do to make some noise and shake things up. The resources that are out there in this world are endless. Learn to be resourceful, sit down and actually write a list of The Top 5 Things That You Love In life, and start researching to see if there are careers in your areas of interests. Then… start looking for opportunities, put your name down in every facet of that field until something sticks.

Nothing is ever handed to you on a silver platter when it comes to finding your passion. No amount of money can buy you your passion, it is priceless, and it is up to each and every one of us to discover what we can truly love, grow and expand with major value.

I have worked just for the money before and it straight out sucks! Only when I followed my passion, I felt truly content.

Until you find your passion and pursue your dreams you will be wandering around, with something missing. We have to find our purpose, that is what makes us whole, along with family, friends and the opportunity to share our experiences with loved ones.

 

FOLLOW YOUR DAMN PASSION!

 

Now… get to work!

20 Ways You Can Become a Powerful Communicator

Published

on

Emile Steenveld Speaker and Coach

Some people seem to naturally know how to effectively communicate in a group setting. They can express themselves clearly and listen attentively without dominating the conversation.

Being a powerful communicator is important for several reasons, including building and maintaining relationships, achieving goals, resolving conflicts, improving productivity, leading and influencing others, advancing in your career, expressing yourself more confidently and authentically, and improving your mental and emotional well-being. Effective communication is an essential life skill that can benefit you in all aspects of your life.

But, don’t worry if you don’t naturally possess this skill, as effective communication is something that can be developed with practice, planning and preparation.
 

1.  Listen actively: Practice active listening by giving your full attention to the speaker and responding to what they are saying.

 

2. Use “I” statements: Speak from your own perspective and avoid placing blame or making accusations.

 

3. Avoid assumptions: Don’t make assumptions about what the other person is thinking or feeling.

 

4. Be clear: Express your thoughts and feelings clearly and concisely by getting to the point and avoid using jargon or overly complex language.

 

5. Show empathy: Show that you understand and care about the other person’s feelings.

 

6. Offer valuable insights: When speaking in a group, provide a valuable takeaway or actionable item that people can walk away with.

 

7. Be an active listener: Listen attentively and respond accordingly, incorporating your points into the conversation.

 

8. Choose the right time: Pick the most opportune time to speak to ensure that you have the group’s attention and can deliver your message without interruption.

 

9. Be the unifying voice: Step in and unify the group’s thoughts to calm down the discussion and insert your point effectively.

 

10. Keep responses concise: Keep responses short and to the point to show respect for others’ time.

 

11. Avoid unnecessary comments: Avoid commenting on everything and only speak when you have something important to say.

 

12. Cut the fluff: Avoid being long-winded and get straight to the point.

 

13. Prepare ahead of time: Sort out your points and practice them before speaking in a group.

 

14. Smile and be positive: Smile and nod along as others speak, to build a positive relationship and be respected when it’s your turn to speak.

 

15. Take responsibility: Take responsibility for your own actions and feelings.

 

16. Ask questions: Ask questions to clarify any confusion or misunderstandings.

 

17. Avoid interrupting: Allow the other person to finish speaking without interruption.

 

18. Practice active listening: Repeat what the other person said to ensure you have understood correctly.

 

19. Use your body language too: Use nonverbal cues such as eye contact, facial expressions, and body language to convey your message and build rapport.

 

20. Be aware of the tone of your voice: it should be calm and assertive, not aggressive or passive.

 

By keeping these tips in mind, you can improve your communication skills and become a more powerful communicator, which can help you build better relationships, achieve your goals, and lead a more fulfilling life.
