I really wanted to greet you in your native tongue this week but as I looked around to find the most appropriate phrase, I thralled through tonnes of online learning sites and found it hard to know for sure what greeting to use… So, can you guys tell me how you greet each other and what all the different variations of “hello” are for you are so I can give you some of my insights into your words next week…
I missed a week last week as I was unwell but I’m back to full health now and looking forward to posting once a week for you here.
This week I want to share with you something I learned recently at a seminar… the 10 traits of successful speakers. Can you tell me how many of these top 10 traits you’re applying and how they’re working for you? Please share some suggestions as to what’s working well for you whatever area of nursing you’re in or preparing for. This works great also for IELTS preparation… Let me know your thoughts?
Top 10 Traits of Successful People
- Successful people take shortcuts
- Successful people make no excuses
- Successful people expand bigger than the obstacle in front of them
- Successful people have the desire and know the “how” will come
- Successful people don’t contract in the face of challenge, they ALWAYS expand
- Successful people make decisions quickly
- Successful people make leaps of faith
- Successful people spend money to save time
- Successful people sign up to do scary things and do them anyway
- Successful people take IMPERFECT action
So, we know that all actions, behaviours and beliefs can be modelled. Which of the above actions and behaviours can you start modelling today?
One other crucial thing I learned recently is that everything we want is generally outside our comfort zone so in order to get the lifestyle you dream of, you must take actions that are uncomfortable every so often. If you continue taking actions that are comfortable, then you will get the results you have always gotten. To get the results you want, you must start to take different actions.
What are some of the actions that you need to start taking today to get different results in English?
Until next week, dear nurses
