If there was only ONE thing I was allowed to fully focus on more this year and nothing else, I would choose to
SMILE as often as possible.
SMILING is something that can bring IMMENSE VALUE to your life, with the least amount of effort, zero money, NO planning, AND has extremely low risks! •
You may think I already smile a lot, which I do, but I have recognized that as I get more focused on planning and creating things that I want to shape my future, I can find myself taking things more seriously. The kind of serious that makes me forget to laugh, forget to take a break, or doesn’t allow myself to PLAY as much as I used to.
NOT THIS YEAR, I give myself permission to PLAY, seriously PLAY!!! •
Thank you @tiovonhale@tiovonhale for being one of my favorite people to shoot with. You know how to truly capture a moment!
I was watching for the 10th time one of my favourite movies 🎥 “ #HITCH” and I thought: it’s always about knowing #communication.
The beauty of meeting people is to get to know them, understand what they’re really saying to you. What you should read “among the unknown lines.” Like he said: “60% of all human communication is none verbal, #BodyLanguage, 30% is your #tone, so that means that 90% of what you’re saying ain’t coming out of your mouth!” And that’s right! One big lesson that I’ve learnt in my life is that: “Everyone can be read if you pay the right attention to the right things.” Start being a good #ActiveListener. Try to feel what the other person that you’re interested in feels by being #empathetic. Ask #questions that lead you to achieving your #goal that you set in the first place.
Don’t buy a book from its cover, you could waist precious #lessons from “unexpected” authors. Know more!
Try to know more about the person you’re talking to. You’ll be surprised on what you’ll be discovering. Because, at the end of the day, it’s there, it’s always been there. You just need to get started.
