How To Master The Perfect Voice

The referenced video of this post is an interview done by Stefan James with Roger Love.

Just to take note and apply it to my next speaking sessions, here are the three main points that may immediately applicable for me:

1. Three range of tone of speaking to make the talk more interesting: (should be lower and slower for me)

2. Pause and breathe in with nose instead of mouth between sentences or commas.

3. Don’t limit my voice to the microphone; Project my voice to vibrate the bodies of the far audience.

 

Self-confidence Formula

1. I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my Define Purpose in life. Therefore I demand of myself persistent, continuous action towards its attainment, and I here and now promise to take such action.

2. I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action and gradually transform themselves into physical reality. Therefore I will concentrate my thoughts for 30 minutes daily upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture fo that person.

3. I know through the principle of autosuggestion that any desire I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object. Therefore I will devote 10 minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of self-confidence.

4. I have clearly written down a description of my Definite Chief Aim in life. I will never stop trying until I have developed sufficient self-confidence for its attainment.

5. I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice. Therefore I will engage in no transaction that does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate hatred, envy, jealousy, selfishness and cynicism by developing love for all humanity because I know that a negative attitude towards others can never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself. I will sign my name to this formula, and commit it to memory and repeat it aloud once a day, with full faith that it will gradually influence my thoughts and actions so that I will become a self-reliant and successful person.

Exit Interview

The purpose of exit interview is for the company to understand what they could have done better and help them see how the market is doing.

The interview should be given to someone who matters. HR might not have enough power to sustain the changes

Topics cover:
  • Reason for department
  • Satisfaction with compensation / working condition
  • Work / Life Balance
  • Any problems with co-workers or managers
  • Were you being treated fairly as a person?
  • Suggestion for changes
  • Satisfaction of supervision, training, and career opportunities
  • Company’s future aspect (looking good or maybe not so good?)
=======================================================

Above is my note from various videos from YouTube before my actual exit interview happens, but it wasn’t that far off from the one that’s been hold with me.

The HR told me that my words will be passed on to someone who matters anonymously and that the conversation would stay private in the room. The thing is, my full name is the first thing being put down on that sheet of paper when I entered the room, so I am rather sketchy about the whole anonymity thing. I wasn’t really transparent with the company, but I guess, they weren’t really transparent with me too so.. 🙂

Some additional questions during my interview:

  • What do you like/dislike about the company?
    • Just bring up everything you like about the company and leave the dislikes empty because you don’t want to leave the company with negative notes even though you might be tempted to, but DON’T DO IT!
  • Who would you like to promote in the team?
    • There is definitely someone outstanding, but unfortunately, I was not very fond of that person so I left it blank. Besides, answering this question might cause chaos to the team after my departure so no, i’m just not gonna answer. Bite me.
    • Looking back, I should have asked for the intention of this question before answering jibberish.
Hope this post somewhat helped the people who need it and I sincerely wish you all the best out there. Stay strong and move on!

5 Mindsets for Living to the Fullest

This post is a note from a video on 5 Hard Lessons You Need to Learn Before 30. I’m not sure why the magic number 30 is there since everyone’s age span varies a bit differently, but anyways, here are the five lessons:

1. There may not be a tomorrow, so enjoy/do it now.

  • Think about what would be the things that you would regret not do if tomorrow were your last day.
  • Your time is limited and you don’t have forever, so do what you want to and do what you enjoy right now.

2. You’ve got nothing to lose, but everything to gain.

  • Give it your all. You are born to win, so do what winners do

Three ways to get comfortable with success – Dan Lok

  1. Be comfortable with uncomfortable consistently:
    • Act and behave like the rich (or whatever your model is) that give you rich mindset
    • E.g. Take business class instead of economic when going on business trips for boosting confidence
    • E.g. Eat at a higher end restaurant every now and then to taste what your next level would be like
    • Note to self: Need a change of commute to work
      .
  2. Emotional Intensity: Get by your first success.
    • First time is the scariest, but after that, it’ll just be cool
    • Try as many things as you can so you can experience the first as many times as possible so you can get used to overcoming first-time fears. However, you have to make sure you reach the level of success of the activity you chose. Reaching success is a change of state which is something that needs to get used to
      .
  3. Get a mentor
    • Having someone who believes you more than yourself to push you go further, harder, faster
    • Maybe some apps from Android can help.. Mentor-bots maybe. I mean, there are already apps out there where some anime girl is watching over you to do push up, sit up and all sort of ups.
