How To Get More Comfortable In Front Of Crowds

2013-06-22

Speaking in public is frightening – I can tell you that. It’s something that many people expect us to do with ease, as if it is as uncomplicated and natural as breathing. Personally, I like speaking to crowds more than to individuals. In the former case, you don’t see any faces, and the main job [...]

How Difficult Is It For a Non-native Speaker To Write Blog Posts?

2013-06-19

A little bit about me: I’m Russian, but I’ve lived my whole life in a small Eastern European country called Estonia. Here I speak – as a rule – Estonian (obviously) and Russian. In school, I studied German, but I also attended English-based classes for 4-5 years. As you can see, there was not that [...]

Is It OK To Be Selfish?

2013-06-18

What Does It Mean To Be Selfish? To care only about personal rewards even at the cost of other people’s interests. This is one of the most common definitions of egoism. But is this definition accurate? As a society, we applaud self-sacrifice and selflessness; we love it when rich people make generous donations, and act [...]

How To Become a More Powerful Person

2013-06-17

This is a confusing topic, because the word “powerful” has many definitions and many people – including me – understand it differently. I hesitated to write about something that abstract, but then I thought, “What the heck, why not give it a shot?” Powerful people have presence. It’s like they have a force field surrounding [...]

How To Stop Being So Sensitive To Criticism?

2013-06-14

Dealing with criticism is one of those things we all have to learn, because not everyone will become self-employed and be his own boss. Like most of you, I don’t like being scrutinized by anyone, even if my critics are spot on. I like being appreciated for my work, and that’s why whenever I hear [...]

Are You Afraid To Tell The Truth?

2013-06-11

Personally, I’m scared of telling the truth. No, it is not like I lie all the time. I’m talking about important issues, like pointing out when something is done unprofessionally; directing people’s attention to criminal acts, etc. I’m not sure why that is, but I don’t really like confrontations. Maybe it is because I’m an [...]

How To Deal With Pressure

2013-06-07

We all know that life can get complicated, and if we are seriously unlucky, it will also throw all kinds of “fun” challenges at us. But we shouldn’t cry about it, because our complaints would fall on deaf ears; and even if they wouldn’t, what would change? If you want something, you have to be [...]

I Want To Be Successful

2013-06-06

I used to ask myself, “What does it mean to be successful?” I don’t take claims like “success revolves around having your face plastered all over the city” very seriously, because this is a “privilege” of the few, and there are, certainly, many people who have reached their goals but have decided to remain in [...]

How To Make Yourself Happy

2013-06-04

What does it mean to find inner peace?
