“Someone takes credit for your idea in a business meeting - what do you do?" When it happens, you competently make a point like saying " thanks X for spotlighting my point". It works because you spoke with composure. This is one of many business etiquette skills that I cover in my workshop. Stay tuned for the next months’ Business Etiquette Workshop, where you can learn to increase your visibility and stand out from the competition.
Ditch the phone for "connecting" over connection.
As much as our smartphones are a large part of our day, for business and personal use, in some situations, it’s time to put them down! Meaningful connections and conversations cannot happen in the physical presence if we are glued to our phones. During meetings, put your phone on silent and leave it in your bag, using it only if you are asked to retrieve immediate information or action. At home, have a "no phones" rule from 6pm to 9pm so that you spend quality time with your loved ones and friends.
Tip 5 - Reframe your negative thoughts
We all have rough/bad days but by replacing pessimistic thoughts with more realistic expectations, we can stay on course and manage the bad days. Set small achievable goals rather than unrealistic outcomes. If you are trying to lose weight, go for 500gs a week over a longer time than crashing dieting for 2 kgs. If you are behind at work, make a list of what you need to do and start with the most urgent.
Tip 4 - Developing Mental Strength
Set yourself up for success by making small changes to improve your life overall. Start by removing junk food on your menu if you want to eat healthier, or taking a short walk during your lunch break to get away from your desk. Physical wellbeing is a key part of success.

Hi Everyone, it has been a while since I was nicknamed "The Life Guru" ( a consequence of a catch up for a chat with @expatlivingsg - thank you for that🙏)
My first thought was - can I hold up to this "burden"? So I made the decision to survive using Courage and take the Challenge!! We provide people with several positive guidelines to set them towards a successful and appreciative life.

When your Child heads off to Uni!
It's that time of year again where many students have to say goodbye to their families. Leaving home is one of the most significant events of parenthood. The sadness parents and children can feel often comes as a shock. All relationships shift gear.
