Seven body language tricks to make anyone instantly like you There's no question that body language is important. And, according to Leil Lowndes in her book "How To Talk To Anyone," you can capture - and hold - anyone's attention without even saying a word. We've selected the best body language techniques from the book and shared them below: The Flooding Smile "Don't flash an immediate smile when you greet someone," says Lowndes. Instead, pause and look at the other person's face for a second, and then let a "big, warm, responsive smile flood over your face and overflow into your eyes." Even though the delay is less than a second, it will convince people your smile is sincere and personalized for them. Sticky Eyes "Pretend your eyes are glued to your conversation partner's with sticky warm taffy," Lowndes advises. You can also try counting your conversation partner's blinks. Epoxy Eyes In a group of people, you should watch the person you are interested in, no matter who else is talking. The Big-Baby Pivot Limit the Fidget Hang By Your Teeth
2 Psychology Rules for Getting Better at Chess--and Life We often use chess as a metaphor for life, business, and other competitive sports, because it's such a strategic game. Coder and chess player Gautam Narula offers us two simple rules that sum up the psychology of chess-and, by extension, winning in other areas. In an incredibly detailed post about how to quickly get better at chess, Narula says: If chess is anything, it is a game of second chances. There's a footnote to the second rule, saying if the situation is absolutely hopeless, it's good etiquette to resign rather than drag the game on needlessly. "If my opponent were playing [reigning World Chess Champion and number one player in the world] Magnus Carlsen in this position, would Carlsen be able to win?" The whole post is a great resource for anyone interested in chess, but the psychology part applies to us all. How to Get Good at Chess, Fast | Gautam Narula Photo by malias.
"The Way a Person Does One Thing Is the Way They Do Everything" There's something that is far more important than reaching one of your goals: the process that leads you there. If you're going to do something-no matter what it is-do it to the best of your ability. Developing a good process and solid work ethic can come from everything you do, not just the one thing you're trying to accomplish. Writer and former athlete Tobi Atkins rethought the way he lived his life when he heard an old zen saying from one of his mentors: "The way a person does one thing is the way they do everything" I used to be a someone who would cut corners on what I thought were small things. It may seem like you're just skimping on the unimportant stuff, or saving energy for your big tasks, but repetition makes a habit. Of course, there's a difference between not cutting corners and perfectionism. This One Phrase Changed My Life | Pick the Brain Photo by Stephen Korecky.
9 Quotes By Will Smith That Will Inspire You To Live Your Own Life I love Will Smith. His movies are awesome. His acting is great and you know something? He’s an inspiring dude. He’s not just some celebrity. You’d be surprised how much you can learn from him when it comes to living your life your own way to attain the success you deserve. Here are 9 quotes by Will Smith to inspire you to live life your own way 1) “Fear is not real. That really puts fear in perspective eh? Just imagine that fear is a separate entity altogether.

Focus on the other important ones instead.
6 Breathing Exercises to Relax in 10 Minutes or Less Don’t wait until fight or flight kicks in before minding your breath. Controlled breathing not only keeps the mind and body functioning at their best, it can also lower blood pressure, promote feelings of calm and relaxation and help us de-stress. While the effects of breathing techniques on anxiety haven’t yet been studied at length (at least not in a controlled clinical setting), many experts encourage using the breath as a means of increasing awareness, mindfulness or, for the yogis among us, finding that elusive state of Zen. To get to the bottom of the breath work, Greatist spoke to breathing expert Dr. Alison McConnell, yoga instructor Rebecca Pacheco and psychologist Dr. From the confines of a bed, a desk or anyplace where negativity finds its way, consider these six breathing techniques to help keep calm and carry on. 1. How it’s done: Balance can do a body good, beginning with the breath. Level of difficulty: Beginner 2. 3. Level of difficulty: Intermediate 4. 5. 6.
Assertiveness Assertiveness is the quality of being self-assured and confident without being aggressive. In the field of psychology and psychotherapy, it is a learnable skill and mode of communication. Dorland's Medical Dictionary defines assertiveness as: "a form of behavior characterized by a confident declaration or affirmation of a statement without need of proof; this affirms the person's rights or point of view without either aggressively threatening the rights of another (assuming a position of dominance) or submissively permitting another to ignore or deny one's rights or point of view". During the second half of the 20th century, assertiveness was increasingly singled out as a behavioral skill taught by many personal development experts, behavior therapists, and cognitive behavioral therapists. Assertiveness is often linked to self-esteem. Training Communication Assertive communication involves respect for the boundaries of oneself and others. Assertive people Fogging
untitled “Don’t Read Books!” A 12th-Century Zen Poem by Maria Popova “It’s annoying for others to have to hear you.” We live in a culture that often romanticizes books as the tender and exhilarating love-making to the “orgasm without release” of Alan Watts’s admonition against our media gluttony — an antidote to the frantic multitasking of modern media, refuge from the alleged evils of technology, an invitation for slow, reflective thinking in a fast-paced age obsessed with productivity. Books, Kafka memorably asserted, are “the axe for the frozen sea inside us.” Given I spend the majority of my waking hours reading and writing about books, I have certainly bought into that romantic notion. But everything, it turns out, is a matter of context: Imagine my amusement in chancing upon a poem titled “Don’t Read Books!” Penned by Chinese poet Yang Wanli in the 12th century, the poem, translated by Jonathan Chaves, is a renunciation of books as a distraction from the core Buddhist virtue of mindful presence: Don’t read books!

‘Drama of Life Before Birth': Landmark Work, Five Decades Later In the five decades since Lennart Nilsson’s portrait of an 18-week-old human fetus appeared on the cover of the April 30, 1965, issue of LIFE — along with other, equally jaw-dropping pictures across multiple pages inside the magazine — the debate about when life begins and who, ultimately, wields control of a woman’s body, both before and after birth, has only intensified. Religious, ethical, legal and medical arguments swirl around the issues of conception, contraception and abortion, and few political “hot button” issues are more radioactive than that of (put in the simplest and, perhaps, the most incendiary possible terms) the “right to choose” versus a “right to life.” In 1965, however, the central question gripping most everyone who saw Nilsson’s pictures was the far more prosaic, and readily answerable, “How on earth did he do that?” As LIFE told its readers when Nilsson’s pictures first appeared in the magazine’s pages:
Guide a Clueless Interviewer by Asking a Few Key Questions Some managers are great interviewers...and some are lousy. If you encounter the latter, you might get the job if you ask the interviewer the right questions. If the interview seems too short or just is not going well, ask a few key questions at the end. Ask a Manager has some great suggestions to save an awkward situation like this: I'd ask, "What else can I tell you about me to help you figure out if this is the right fit?" You're steering the conversation back to relevant job qualifications. What to do when your interviewer is terrible at interviewing | Ask a Manager Photo by COD Newsroom.
10 Surprisingly Inspirational Quotes from Evil People Whether it's a moving quote made by comic book writer Bill Watterson or singer Janis Joplin, it's easy to find an inspiration from great people who've done great things. But evil people have said just as many inspirational, motivation, and all around fantastic things. Just because you're a horrible human being it doesn't mean that you don't have something insightful to say. "Words build bridges into unexplored regions." -Adolf Hitler If you're finding yourself stuck on something-whether it's an idea, a place, a conversation, or anything else-it's helpful to remember that oftentimes, the best way to expand your mind and branch out is with words. Then again, in the context of Adolf Hitler, those words were used for much more malicious and horrifying things. "He who stops being better stops being good." -Oliver Cromwell "It takes less courage to criticize the decisions of others than to stand by your own." -Attila the Hun "Impossible is a word found only in the dictionary of fools." -Jim Jones

C++ Object Oriented The prime purpose of C++ programming was to add object orientation to the C programming language, which is in itself one of the most powerful programming languages. The core of the pure object-oriented programming is to create an object, in code, that has certain properties and methods. While designing C++ modules, we try to see whole world in the form of objects. For example a car is an object which has certain properties such as color, number of doors, and the like. It also has certain methods such as accelerate, brake, and so on. There are a few principle concepts that form the foundation of object-oriented programming: Object This is the basic unit of object oriented programming. Class When you define a class, you define a blueprint for an object. Abstraction Data abstraction refers to, providing only essential information to the outside world and hiding their background details, i.e., to represent the needed information in program without presenting the details.

Java OOPs Concepts - Javatpoint In this page, we will learn about basics of OOPs. Object Oriented Programming is a paradigm that provides many concepts such as inheritance, data binding, polymorphism etc. Simula is considered as the first object-oriented programming language. The programming paradigm where everything is represented as an object, is known as truly object-oriented programming language. Smalltalk is considered as the first truly object-oriented programming language. Object means a real word entity such as pen, chair, table etc. ObjectClassInheritancePolymorphismAbstractionEncapsulation Object Any entity that has state and behavior is known as an object. Class Collection of objects is called class. Inheritance When one object acquires all the properties and behaviours of parent object i.e. known as inheritance. Polymorphism When one task is performed by different ways i.e. known as polymorphism. In java, we use method overloading and method overriding to achieve polymorphism. Abstraction Encapsulation
