Age excusitis, the failure disease of never being the right age, comes in two easily identifiable forms: the “I’m too old” vatiety and the “I’m too young”brand.
You’ve heard hundreds of people of all ages explain their mediocre perormance in life something like ihis: “I’m too old (or too young)to bread in now. I can’t do what I want to do or am capable of doing because of my age handicap.” Really, it’s surprising how few people feel they are “just right” age-wise. And it’s unfortunate. This excuse has closed the door of real opportunity to thousnads of individuals. They think their age is wrong, so they don’t even bother try.
The “I’m too old” variety is the most common form of age excusitis. This disease is spread in subtle ways. TV fiction is prodeced about the big executive who lost his job because of a merger and can’t find another because he’s too old. Mr Executive looks for months to find another job, but he can’t, and in the end, after contemplating suicide for a while, he decides to rationalize that it’s nice to be on the shelf.
Plays and magazine articles on the topic “Why You Are Washed Up at 40” are popular, not because they represint true facts, but because they appeal to many worried minds looking for an excuse.

Nonverbal Communication is the use of body language, gestures and facial expressions to convey information to others. It can be used both intentionally and unintentionally. For example, you might smile unintentionally when you hear a pleasing or enjoyable idea or piece of information. Nonverbal communication is helpful when trying to understand other is thoughts and feelings.
If they are displaying “closed” body language, such as crossed arms or hunched shoulders, they might be feeling anxious, angry or nervous. If they are displaying “open” body language with both feet on the floor and arms by their side or on the table, they are likely feeling positive and open to information.
Written communication is the act of writing, typing or printing symbols like letters and numbers to convey information. It is helpful because it provides a record of information for reference. Writing is commonly used to share information through books, blogs, letters, memos and more. Emails and chats are a common form of written communication in the workplace.
Visual communication is the act of using photographs, drawings, sketches, charts and graphs to convey information. Visuals are often used as during presentations to provide helpful context alongside written and/or verbal communication. Because people have different learning styles, visual communication might be more helpful for some to consume ideas and information.
A gun would be too violent. A knife blade to the wrist would be too silent. So, the question is, How could a once-glorious life be ended swoftly and precisely, with minimum mess yet maximum impact?
Only a year ago, circumstances had bee dramatically more hopeful. The enterepreneur had been widely celebrated as a titan of the industry, a leader of society and a respected personality. He was 25 years old having having keen desires in the field of it. He was running a company.He founded in his bedroom to ever-increasing levels of marketplace dominance while producing applications on his system that his users revered.
Yet now he was being blindsided, facing a mean spirited jealousy-fueled coup that would significantly dilute his ownership stake in the business he had invested most of the life building, forcing him to find something new.
The cruelty of this remarkable turn of events was proving to be unbearable for him. Beneath his regularly icy exterior beat a crying, compessionate and deeply loving heart. He felt life itself had betrayed him. And that he deserved so much better.
He considered swallowing a gigantic bottle of sleeping pills. The dangerous deed would be cleaner this way. Just take them all and get the job don fast, he taught. I need to escape this pain.
Then, he spotted something on the stylish oak dresser in his all white bedroom a ticket to a personal optimization conference that his father had given him. The enterpreneur usually laughed at people who attended such events, calling them “Broken winged” and saying they were seeking the answers of a pseudo guru when everything they needed to live a prolific and successful life was already within them.
May be it was time to rethink his opinion. He couldn’t see many options either he had go to the seminar and experience some break through that would save his life or he had find his peace via quickly death.
“Do not allow your fire to go out, Spark by irreplaceable spark in the not-quite, the not-yet, and not at all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world yo desire can be won. It exists it is real. It is possible.It is yours.”
Encourage others to talk. In personal conversation or in group meetings, draw out people with little urges, such as “Tell me about your experience….” or “What do you think should be done about…?” or “What do you think is the key point?” Encourage others to talk, and you win a double-barreled victory: your mind soaks up raw material that you can use to produce creative thought, and you win friends. There is no surer way to get people to like you than to encourage them to talk to you.
Test your own views in the form of questions. Let other people help you smooth and polish your ideas. Use the what-do-you-think-of-this-suggestion? approach. Don’t be dogmatic. Don’t announce a fresh idea as if it were handed down on a gold tablet. Do a little informal research first. See how your associates react to it. If you do, chances are you’ll end up with a better idea.
Concentrate on what the other person says. Listening is more than just keeping your own mouth shut. Listening means letting what’s said penetrate your mind. So often people pretend to listen when they aren’t listening at all. They’re just waiting for the other person to pause so they can take over with the talking. Concentrate on what the other person says. Evaluate it. That’s how you collect mind food.
Expect future obstacles and difficulties. E very venture presents risks, problems, and uncertainties. Let’s suppose you wanted to drive your car from Chicago to Los Angeles, but you insisted on waiting until you had absolute assurance that there would be no detours, no motor trouble, no bad weather, no drunken drivers, no risk of any kind. When would you start? Never! In planning your trip to Los Angeles it makes sense to map your route, check your car, in other ways to eliminate as much risk as possible you start. But you can’t eliminate all risks.
Meet problems and obstacles as they arise. The test of a successful person is not the ability to eliminate all problems before he takes action, but rather the ability to find solutions to difficulties when he encounters them. In business, marriage, or in any activity, cross bridges when you come to them.
