1. 5 Skills that pay of your whole life: Hi. My name is Philip. And in this cast, you're going to learn five simple things that will completely change your life. These are things you have to learn wants, and you can apply every day throughout your whole life. I want you to take a clear look at this. Five things just can really be a game changer for you. Give it a try and as approach. And I want you to try out at least one off these five things and tell me how it changed your life. 2. Managing Time: the next big well important think that you should learn to master is time management, because under world there are only some things that are limited, so it should be a limited amount of money on the world. And what's 100% sure that is limited is your time because you only live once and you should use the time in the best way possible. Let's say when you go to work, you exchange your time for money. That's OK. That's completely fine. Almost all of us have to do this to survive. But in your free time, you can use your time in a where we were effective. It simply by using time management. Time management means you should know when you want to do what and why you wanted to lose. So let's say I have and free time off for hours. What do I want to do in this for hours? Best way for me to get stuff done is just simply having this little to do list. I put this to do lists directly on the notebook there, see what I wanted to do. I start my list with the most important things first, that say I have four things to do. Try to do the most important things first because it's a good feeling to take something off . Once I've ticked it off, I go to the next thing to the next thing into the next week until I'm done with my list. And if I then have some free time, I can use this free time to have fun and to do things that I really love. And here comes the important part. Also for your free time. You should have made plans in two months. So let's say toe today in the evening when I go to bed and try to sleep, I think about OK, So what are the things that have to do to? Well, if I have time, What do I want to do tomorrow? Because there's nothing else that say you have two hours of spare time. Just waste about 20% of the spare time we're thinking about. So what we're able to do? Let's say you wanted to go shopping, but your spare time starts at 6 p.m. In the evening, so yeah, maybe it would be better for you to play your spare time at a time when this shopping centers or where they have open because you can tickle shopping when they are closed. So that's why time management is so crucial. Always think about when you will win and what you want to do and how you can schedule your day about the things you really want to do. Try to become an expert in time management. It will change your life, you can believe. 3. Knowing when it's time to shut up: not a very important thing that most of us are not able to do is knowing when to shut up. Let's say you in a discussion, and this discussion is getting out off the room. People are starting to fight on whatever. Wouldn't it be better if you decide for yourself? Okay, I have to stop this madness now. I should up let the other person to talking and I try to stop this fight because fights normally separate people and don't bring them together. Also, going to shut up can mean, let's say you're in a discussion and you know that you can't really contribute to this discussion because all you will say will be a wild guess or you know that other people are marked more experience than you. This would be the queen. Time for you to shut up and apply torture video before you should stop listening. So shutting up and listening to people can really, really help you to change the game and learn to get most out of the situation. 4. Emotional Intelligence: The first thing I want to talk about is the emotional intelligence. The emotional intelligence is your ability to recognize and understand emotions in yourself and in others. This means something like that. You are able to understand how other people are thinking and also how things up, the way to be and how you can control yourself from getting too emotional of some things. Let's take a look at an example. We all know shopping centers and where we attend a shopping center. The idea off the creators of the shopping center is for us toe walk as much product. It's possible that we don't want to buy, and they try to promote them in a very, very good way to us so that we almost can't include them, that most of us are going to buy a lot of things that we really don't need. You all know you went shopping and you bought much more than you really wanted to buy. For example, at the check out points where you have to pay their always this little sweet I'm presented next to the waiting line so that while you wait to take a look at it and most of us are going to buy things there. Being really emotional intelligent means that you're able to stop buying these things. Emotional intelligence means that you have your brain completely under control. You don't get interrupted by your emotions. You can train this very easy way simply by trying to think about why you are going to make this decision. You know why I am going toe by this. Do you really needed or is it just an emotional free? Just can also help? You were much relations. Let's say you're in a relationship on and you're going toe, have a fight and fight starting on D in a fight. A lot of people say things that they don't really mean. So the next time you get into a fight, try to concentrate that you only talked the words and say things that you really want to say that don't say these things that just came out a few because of your emotions 5. Staying Positiv: the last thing I want to focus on its for myself, the most important thing. It's called staying positive. Staying positive stuff when your point, whenever you think that something is going toe work in your way, it's more like it work in your way than it's working into the other. The lectures. Let's say a man who thinks about himself that he is attractive is much more likely to get seen detective. But other people A sportsman who wakes up in the morning test today, I'm going to crush the record. I'm going to win this waste. It's much more likely toe win the ways than a person who acceptances here. I don't feel well well today, Feel said. I can't focus on running. Next important thing about staying positive is that you really, really work on it to get it into your point. Let's say you take out list and you write down five things. You want to focus on where you want to fake positive part. Let's say I want to succeed at matchup. I want to get good. Quite. I want to lose five kills. I know that I can lose five kilos end zone and you write this down and you waited at least sweet hands a day. I have my little list. I read it once in the morning. I want when I came home from university and once before I go to sleep and this really, really helps me to change my point. At the beginning, it felt a little bit stupid, to be honest, but it helped me really focus myself with thinking only positive things. That this can be a game changer for you superior to try the Hope Toe, see some positive results from all of you. 6. Asking for help: The next thing is also very important. It's called asking for help. Asking for help can help you spare a lot off time that say You're shopping and you're in a shopping center and you need to find, for example, a toothbrush, and you have completely no clue very this for sure. You can move all this lines up and down, up and down from the left to the wife, and then one moment you will find it, but it can probably cost you about 15 minutes. A much better way would be to go to find shop person and ask him. We are friendly. Let's say hi, I'm so I'm a little bit lost year. I'm here first time. Can you tell me where I can find this at that product and the people will help you for sure . It's not completely easy situation for you because I have to go and talk to a stranger a lot off. People don't like to do this, but if you do it, it could save you a lot of time. And let's say that's not only for shopping, it's also good for business. That's why a lot of famous people say the best thing they got life for the mental. A Manta is a person that can help you and most exam. The best way would be if it would be the most experienced person you know in your field. And this person can help you with all these questions. Imagine you're opening and restaurant. You're doing it completely for the first time. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a person that had a similar Westbrook for 30 years or longer that you can look upto and ask them all the questions? Let's take how shall I manage my deliver with services? What shall I do if I have a problem with customers, you could really get out their experience, their knowledge. But this will never happen if you don't ask them so them to ask people for help. It can really help you
