I truly believe that we are all life coaches. We always have opportunities to help the people in our life with the challenges they’re facing.
That’s why today I want to share with you 5 tips on how to help people more effectively.
By using them, you’ll be in greater service to those around you, and you’ll enjoy the blissful feeling of knowing you’ve made another person’s life better.1. Ask powerful questions.
Oftentimes, when people ask you for help, they already know the answers deep down. They just can’t see them. Your job is to ask the questions that will help them find the answers that are buried within them.
Don’t be afraid to ask follow-up questions and really get to the root of the issue. Most people don’t take the time to fully understand what’s going on in their own mind, and your questions will help people really uncover what’s happening up there.
Here are a few good questions to add to your repertoire:
“What do you really want?”
“What’s your heart telling you to do?”
1. Have a nap. If you want to solve a problem, or come up with new ideas, then instead of always thinking - relax and have a nap. We’re usually more creative when we’re feeling wide awake.
2. Get into the habit of making small talk. A casual remark can change the way you look at things - so talk and listen to everyone you meet.
3. Sign up for classes and seminars. Listening to the ideas and opinions of others increases the connections you make in your brain. Also, it is usually inspiring and highly motivating.
4. Make sure you spend time with creative people. Often these are people who think outside the box, and are highly individual, and independent thinkers. It will encourage you to follow their example of free thinking, and give you permission to follow wild ideas.
5. Make sure you have time to just “hang” and relax. Things that can seem pointless or a waste of time to others – such as watching movies, reading books and magazines, taking time out to travel, or spending time with friends - are all ways of helping your brain to percolate. And it’s often when we least expect to have a great idea that something quite amazing just pops into our mind!
1. Craving chocolate can be an indication of a low boredom threshold, a thirst for excitement, or simply wanting to feel more positive. More specifically, those who crave dark chocolate are more likely to be extroverts; whereas those who crave milk chocolate are more likely to be introspective and reserved.
2. Craving sweet, sugary food is said to be more common among those like to live a carefree life, who don’t worry too much, and who rarely suffer from guilt pangs and regrets.
3. Craving salty food is more common amongst laid back individuals who “go with the flow”.
4. Preferring a combination of foods is believed to be more common in those who are more private, and prefer to be alone than be part of a large crowd.
