180 Words to Describe Yourself





Describe Yourself for Online Dating, Job Interviews, Resumes and More

Learning how to describe yourself accurately is something we usually have to put some effort into. This seems to be especially true in most western cultures where being honest about our skills, qualities, and attributes can be confused with being arrogant, "blowing your own trumpet," and being excessively self indulgent. If we do learn to describe ourselves, we can often forgo self confidence training by being our own confidence guru and simply acknowledging and appreciating our own positive qualities.

It's OK to Know What Our Positive Qualities Are

From my experience of delivering training programs and seminars on improving confidence and self esteem, whenever participants are asked to state just five of their best qualities, a hushed embarrassment usually fills the room. Then, "I don't know" is the most common response. Conversely, we're all a lot better at listing our faults and failings and can get onto that task without any difficulty. It's like most of us haven't even dared to think about the question, "What's good about me?" -- if that's you, then it's even more important that you read this

Words to Describe Yourself (Adjectives)

Because we can all identify with 90% of these adjectives in some situation or other, I suggest picking 10 - 15 words that describe how you are most of the time, regardless of the situation. It might be helpful to think about who are you when you are on your own, doing your own thing. There will be very few other people who will identify the exact same combination, because we're all different. Ready? Scroll down for list of 180 adjectives to help you describe yourself.

Vision


Vision without your action, will remain a dream.

Your actions without positive vision, just passes through the time.

Your Positive vision with timely action will bring you nearer to your dreams.

If you do not have a clear vision of what you want to achieve, then your reality will be determined by others perception.

If actions are aligned with your vision you will move closer to your dreams.


Never Apologies for what you feel honestly. It is like saying sorry for being real.
Spiteful words can hurt your feelings but deliberate silence will break your heart. Never make permanent decisions based on temporary feelings.
One of the best feeling you experience is , knowing your presence and absence both mean something to someone.

​ The Power of the Daily Ten Minutes


​​
 by Leasa Mayer
It is astounding what can happen if you do something for 10 minutes a day, every single day.Something that really matters to you. Something that is going to help you achieve your goals, change your life, and make a difference in the world.
Since it is almost impossible to believe that this is true, you may want to stop reading right now and just try it. If you want a bit more convincing, please read on.
Pick a "thing." Really, anything at all that you wish you were doing but you're not. Exercising? Pick that. Writing a weekly blog post? Pick that. Growing your own garden? Pick that.
​Learning new software
? Pick that.
Once you have selected your target activity, all you have to do is spend 10 minutes doing it
​ ​
every single day.  Keep track. Write it down on your calendar after you've done your daily 10. The magic in this approach is three fold:
Most of us can convince ourselves to do nearly anything (even exercise) if we only have to do it for 10 minutes. Set the timer. When 10 minutes is up, you're done.

Once we get started, sometimes we get into the flow, and pretty soon we've actually accomplished something noteworthy.

A daily practice becomes a habit. Once it's a habit, you can pick a new "thing" to incorporate into your life.
So go ahead, devote 10 minutes of yourself every day to doing something important and see what happens. What do you have to lose? It's only 10 minutes!
Event professionals are creative, courageous communicators enabling positive change in our world.

Original Peace


Original Peace
It is not necessary to search for peace. It is within. Your original state is one of peace. External situations will pull you away from your peace. If, that is, you let them. Internal feelings can also pull you away. Tiredness, for example, leads to irritability.

Learn to be in charge of yourself and maintain your peace: centre your awareness on your spiritual form - a tiny star-like point of light, seated in the middle of your forehead. Really experience the difference between You the Sparkling Star, and your body, the physical vehicle. Learn to detach yourself from the vehicle.

Even a few moments of this practice, if done regularly, will return you to your natural state of peace. Tiredness will vanish. Irritability too. And your actions will be filled with love - for the self and others.
 

The World’s First Robot Police Officer Begins Patrolling in Dubai

Robot police called Reem saluting at Dubai Mall
To reinforce the country’s security force, Dubai Police have unveiled REEM, an autonomous robot police, as a key addition to their fleet of patrolling officers. The world’s first interactive robot police were given the task of patrolling the city’s malls and tourist attractions.

The robot police

A few days ago, REEM began his patrolling duties in Dubai Mall where people gathered around in curiosity to discover what the robot is all about. As legitimate as REEM can be, people are able to interact with the robot to report crimes, pay fines, and find out information through the touch screen located on its chest. Any data that will be collected by the robot police will be passed around with the country’s transport and traffic authorities. Brig Khalid Al Razooqi, director general of smart services at Dubai Police, said, “Most people visit police stations or customer service, but with this tool, we can reach the public 24/7”. “It can protect people from crime because it can broadcast what is happening right away to our command and control center”, he continued.

The humanoid robot is equipped with an autonomous navigation system and a touch screen that is capable of moving around any kind of surroundings. REEM is 1.65 m in height and has a built-in base that allows it to move at 5 km/h. Its motorized head vision can perform face tracking and recognition. The robot police is also equipped with sensors and a lithium battery pack that lasts up to 8 hours, which enables it to autonomously roam around without the need for human intervention.
Apart from protecting the public, REEM’s other useful applications include functioning as an entertainer, a guide and a logistical tool. REEM is highly bespoke and can be configured to adapt to the customer’s needs. The robot even has a small, built-in platform that can transport objects around for additional assistance. REEM was made by a multi-national robotics R&D company called PAL Robotics, based in Barcelona, Spain.

Dubai’s government plans to enhance its security force by making 25% of it robotic by 2030. However, humans will not be replaced with this technological advancement within the force. “We are not going to replace our police officers with this tool”, says Al Razooqi. “But with the number of people in Dubai increasing, we want to relocate police officers so they work in the right areas and can concentrate on providing a safe city”, he added.
REEM’s linguistic skills only include Arabic and English for now, but other languages such as Russian, Chinese, French, and Spanish are aimed to be added to its communication range.

Francesco Ferro, PAL Robotics’ CEO said that other emerging and upcoming robots can learn a few things from REEM. “Besides the fact that our current model REEM can perform a variety of tasks and acts as a human assistant in a variety of environments, it is also modular.  Its modularity makes it an excellent robotic technological platform, from which a variety of other robots can be developed”.
Dubai’s government is also looking to add another REEM model to its security force by next year depending on funding agreements.

I am sorry, I was wrong, you were right

 

It takes great courage to be honest. One of the noblest qualities in a person is the ability to say, “I am sorry, I was wrong, you were right”. It doesn’t really matter about being right, winning arguments or having my ideas accepted. It matters more that I am able to recognise my mistakes, take responsibility for them, learn the lesson and move forward with greater maturity.

Secrets to Becoming More Stress Resistant

Secrets to Becoming More Stress Resistant

Sometimes stress can be good for you, especially when it gives you the motivation to complete a task. Successfully dealing with stress provides a feeling of satisfaction and the belief that you can handle challenging situations. A certain amount of stress is necessary for an organism to thrive.

When faced with stressful situations, your body responds with a fight or flight response. While this response is helpful for an animal that might become a predator’s meal, it has limited utility in our modern lives. In fact, if your stress becomes chronic, it could cause serious health challenges.
So how can you cut down on your stress?

While many circumstances might be beyond your control, you do have some choices on how you approach stressful situations:

1. Cope actively. Those who have the most success at controlling stress focus on taking charge of situations and seeking solutions. If you tend to avoid challenges and wait until they only get worse, you’re compounding your stress instead of reducing it.
2. Choose how you perceive stressful circumstances. What you think about a circumstance has the most effect on you and your future in dealing with the situation.
  • Will you be a victim, and feel worse, or will you take action to do what you can to make it better?
3. Relax and defuse your body’s stress response. It’s difficult to exercise direct control over many aspects of your physical stress response. Just try to will your heart rate and blood pressure to a lower level! However, you do have a lot of control over your breathing, both the rate and the depth.
  • Sitting in a quiet place and taking slow, deep breaths can perform miracles. Take a slow, deep breath, hold it for two seconds, and then release it slowly.
  • Practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is all the rage today, but it has been around for thousands of years. All it really entails is totally focusing on the task at hand. If you’re folding laundry, you should only be thinking about folding laundry, not thinking about your spouse, work, bills, or anything else.
  • It’s essentially impossible to be stressed in the present moment. In reality, when you’re stressed, you’re either stressing about the past or future. You’re either getting upset about something that’s over or worrying about something that hasn’t happened yet.
4. Get some exercise. A fight or flight response dumps a lot of chemicals into your body that get everything revved up. Burn them off with a healthy dose of exercise.
  • There’s no reason to overdo it, but moving your body around in a vigorous fashion will make you feel a lot better.
5. Take good care of yourself. Most of us tend to marginalize the importance of a healthy diet and adequate sleep. This is a mistake. Your body needs nutritious foods to have a clean energy source. It also needs the proper rest to de-stress and heal from the rigors of the day.
  • Find some stress-free activities than you can enjoy regularly. Maybe golf is your thing. Maybe volunteering makes you feel better. Find a new hobby that engages your mind, like chess or learning the guitar.
6. Be proactive. It is much easier to get your stress level under control when it first starts to rise. When your stress is reaching maximum levels, it’s almost too late at that point to regain control.
  • Pay attention to your body and mind. When you first start becoming stressed, take the appropriate steps to bring it down.
Stress can be very damaging. Animal studies have shown that lifespan is reduced when an animal is subjected to constant stress. Take the necessary steps to get your stress level as low as reasonably possible. The quality of your life will improve and you’ll be happier.

The Best Introvert Definition Ever: How They Are Liked at Work and in Relationships

 
 

Writer. Storyteller. Foodie.
 
What comes to your mind when I say the word "introvert"? A shy, timid person? Or someone who thinks they are too-cool-for-school? As an introvert myself, I'm proud to tell you introverts are not what you think they are.
 
Introverts are seen as quiet, reserved, and often rude and reclusive. However, the introvert definition doesn't include being anti-social. Introverts can have great social lives and close friends, and they do enjoy spending time with others, but they feel so tired physically and mentally after a long day of socializing and mingling.

What they need is spending alone time to regain their energies. They mainly appear in places which provides silence and solace like parks, their home, and cafes. They also enjoy a good ole bus ride alone.
But why do introverts act this way?

Scientists have the perfect explanation of introverted behaviors.

Everyone possesses dopamine and acetylcholine in their brains. These are both neurotransmitters linked to pleasure. Scientists[1] discover introverts rely on acetylcholine — a chemical that makes you feel good when you turn inwards; while extroverts respond better to dopamine — a chemical that provides the motivation to seek external rewards and stimulation.

Also, a study[2] in 2012 finds out introverts have thicker gray matter in their prefrontal cortex, which is a region of the brain linked to decision-making and abstract thoughts. This explains introverts tend to sit and ponder alone before making a decision.

At work, introverts mind their own business.

They don't boast, they just take actions. Introverts don't crave the limelight, and they think boasting is another form of attention-seeking. They prefer working hard on their own instead of gaining popularity or likeness from others.
They don't bother to act nice. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean introverts are stuck-up or extroverts are fake. Introverts do not prefer small talks, or even dread chitchats. They think small talks are not acts of niceness, but pointless conversations.
They aren't shy to present themselves, they only say things when it counts. Introverts are often assumed to be soft-spoken and shy, in fact, they are listening and internalizing their thoughts while others speak. They prefer thinking before speaking, and say things that are really meaningful and constructive.
They hate gossips and don't understand why others love it so much. As I have mentioned before, introverts seldom enjoy trivial conversations, and office politics is no exception.
Despite everything, when they make friends at work, they make really close ones. The reason why introverts don't enjoy chitchats is because they prefer deep, introspective conversations with others. They build friendships beyond the surface, but not upon superficial interactions.

If introverts have a choice, they would rather stay at home and spend time together than going out for a date. Introverts enjoy spending quality time with their loved ones in a space with minimal social interactions, simply because a loud and noisy atmosphere it is more draining and boisterous. Also, introverts like to direct their attention on one person, going out just creates more distractions.

They really need a lot of alone time, but it doesn't mean they don't love you. Often times, introverts in relationships are deemed as non-communicative and distant. Their partners (usually extroverts) may feel less attention from them. It's not that they don't love you, it's only because their introverted temperament requires a silent space to absorb and process information from both outside and inside.
 
They let their partners shine. Introverts prefer stepping back and let others have the spotlight, it's the same in relationships. Their introverted nature makes their more extroverted counterparts feel less threatened and competitive for attention.

They don't like to socialize with their partner's friends, but they are willing to try. It all comes back to introverts not liking small talks. They can be friendly and sociable (and may be mistaken as an extrovert), but they find it mentally draining afterwards. They hate being the center of attention too. But because introverts are great listeners, they understand what their partner wants and try to accommodate their needs.

There are a lot of more that constitute someone's personality.

After reading this, you might see a bit of yourself, or you may think "nah, my introverted friends are nothing like this". I just want you to know, there isn't a solid and absolute introvert definition.

People have different degrees of introversion, and it's more important to know introverts can be different from one another, and people may change after time, but just remember, they all share one ultimate similarity — they need their alone time to recharge.

No matter if you are an introvert or extrovert, let us know if there are any other qualities you think an introverted person possess!

Why You Never Get Anything Done After Noon

 

We’ve all been there - the horrible, sluggish, dirge of work that is 1pm after a morning of admin and clearing your inbox. In fact, you haven’t gotten anything done since you took a break at noon.
 
Why? Because you didn’t set your priorities properly.
 
Instead of dealing with your biggest, most important task while you had the energy to do so, you do what everyone does when faced with a task they don’t want to do. You procrastinated, telling yourself that you’d clear your schedule of your smaller tasks so that you would have a clear head to tackle the main event.
 
And, as we all know, procrastination leads to cramming work into less time, which means way higher stress levels.
 
To avoid doing this again, here are a few pieces of advice I’ve learned the hard way over the last two and a half years of working remotely. After all, you could be an expert in business process management, but if you’re not taking the right approach to your workday, you’ll be dead in the water by lunchtime.

Deal with your ugliest task first

You’re at your most productive when you start work, so it only makes sense to prioritize your tasks and deal with the biggest, ugliest one as the first item of your day.
 
I know it sounds horrible, but it’s like jumping in the deep end of a swimming pool - the initial shock isn’t pleasant, but in no time at all you’re used to the water. By taking care of your ugliest task first, not only are you (usually) dealing with the thing most playing on your mind, but everything else you do after that will seem like a walk in the park.

Plan out your day the night before

You won’t know what your ugliest task is until you’ve planned out your day. Unfortunately, if you leave that task management until the morning, you’ll be left with the same problem of wasting mental energy doing that instead of your main task.
 
Plan out your day of tasks the day before you have to do them. It doesn’t have to take long, but even 5 minutes of planning to create a bare bones task order and time schedule will save you hours upon hours of productive energy in the long run.

Have set times for clearing your inbox

To completely avoid the temptation to fill your morning with small, unimportant tasks, you’ll want to have a set time in which you clear your inbox.
 
Again, this doesn’t have to be anything complicated, but I’d recommend setting aside 30 minutes to an hour at the end of your day to check your emails, organize any tasks, reply to messages, and so on.

Don’t put off tasks that take less than 20 minutes

Yes, I know I said that you shouldn’t be doing smaller tasks in the morning. I stick by that. However, you also shouldn’t put off tasks which will take you 20 minutes or less to complete.
 
By putting them off you’re doing one of two things. Either they will play on your mind and affect your performance until you finally clear them from your task list, or you’ll put them to the side and forever forget about them.
 
Don’t do either - when sorting through your inbox (or as soon as you get the task if it’s not getting in the way of dealing with your main item for the day) make sure that you start and finish anything that will take you less than 20 minutes. Trust me, you’ll feel a lot better if you do.
 
Follow these four tips and you’ll be well on your way to getting your task list to zero and having a solid productivity system. Also, if you have any productivity tips of your own I’d love to hear them in the comments.
