"Live like there is no tomorrow! Constantly move forward and appreciate the motivation for your existence! It has cause! It has meaning! It has reason! Never give up and never look back! Choose to make a meaningful difference in your life and the life of others. <br />Do it every day and DO IT BIG!!!"<br />
The dictionary defines effective as 'exerting influence' or 'capable of having a striking effect'. Almost all great people fall into this category. Many of us find that though we are the latter, our efforts are hardly recognized. So, if you have been struggling to become effective, here is a list of habits that you may consider imbibing. The 8 Habits of Highly Effective People!!!<br />
Habit # 1 : Be proactive<br />Stephen R. Covey, in his highly influential bestseller 'The 7 habits of Highly Effective People', outlines the habits of such people. Being proactive tops the list. Whether it was Gandhi or Victor Frankl, who defied the horror of the Nazi death camps to become a great psychiatrist, effective people are undaunted by their environment. They decide the path they will take and follow it no matter what.<br />
"How your day goes is all about your<br />perception and positivity. If you have<br />it in mind that nothing can stop you,<br />it simply won't...just believe and <br />follow through with this mindset."<br />
Habit # 2 : Focus on the goal<br />Whether it was Mother Teresa or Martin Luther King, they all started out with a goal. What is it that you wish to achieve in 10 or 20 years? Effective people have a goal before they start out. Once you are clear about the destination, you can build the steps you need to get there.<br />
"Successful people can't relax in chairs, they relax in work; they sleep with a dream, awake with commitment and work towards goal. That's spirit of life."<br />
Habit # 3 : Concentrate on the here and now<br />Effective people have the habit of starting from where they are from the moment they have <br />set their goals. Gandhi may have gone on to lead a nation to freedom, but he started out by<br />realizing his ideals among a few Indians on a farm in South Africa. Effective people know the<br />importance of putting first things first.<br />
"Goals are only achieved by those who were brave enough to take a chance or try. All it takes is just believe you can do it."<br />
Habit # 4 : Focus on the greatest good<br />An important habit that goes much against effectiveness is the general tendency to think only of one's own victory or success. Effective people think of change not just for themselves but for all their fellowmen in similar circumstances.<br />
"A self-motivated person can motivate others. The person who has<br />a vision, he will be a source of energy and opportunity for others."<br />
Habit # 5 : Stress on communication<br />All effective people are great communicators, which includes being a good orator as well as a good listener. Covey referred to this as 'seek to understand, then to be understood.' Listen with empathy and note not just the meaning of the words but also the feeling underlying them.<br />
"The best way to persuade is with the ears."<br />
Habit # 6 : Constant self-renewal<br />Covey used the words 'sharpen the saw' to define this habit. A process of renewal and <br />rejuvenation that nourishes your mental, physical and emotional powers is a must if you <br />want to be effective. How can you have an impact if you yourself are tired and worn out?<br />
"I'm strong of mind... strong of heart... I'm strong in spirit. There's strength within my soul, strength in my body. I have passion & ambitions. I am driven... determined & I will not go down without a fight because I have fire burning on the inside. There's something that whispers within & tells me...don't give up! I swear it. I won't give up!"<br />
Habit # 7 : Respect for all<br />The ability to synergize is the universally acknowledged habit that all effective people had.<br />It means to incorporate each individual into the whole without losing sight of their individual differences.<br />
"Making a million friends is not a<br />miracle. The miracle is to make a<br />friend who will stand by you when<br />millions are against you."<br />
Habit # 8 : Go to the root cause<br />If you wish to be effective you have to ask the question 'Why?'- not just once, but many times. Only then can you come to the root cause. Without uprooting this, you will find that the same problems recur.<br />
" Don't ask yourself, 'Can I?' but 'Am I willing to do what it takes?'... because yes! You can!"<br />
Take your time in reading them. Inwardly digest them. Chew on them. Be challenged by them. Don’t discard them, but simply ask yourself ‘what are the inspiring lessons I have just learned’ once you have read them. Reflect on yourself and cultivate these habits to make yourself a highly effective person.<br />
"Don't see others as doing better than you. Beat your own records EVERYDAY & you will surely find success! Remember success is a fight between YOU & YOURSELF."<br />Thank You Very Much<br />Sompong Yusoontorn<br />
