1. Intro & Project: Hello, everyone, This cause I'm going to teach you to most important skills that everyone should have many off lives. Most important things can't be taught at a university or at school, for sure. At the university, you can get a lot off knowledge, but what really happens in life are different skills. These are things like self discipline and the ability to accept and move on. These abilities are inquired just by living. Meeting. New people are learning from mistakes. It's very important for you to connect with more experience. People try to learn from their experience as a project. I want you to make a list of all the skills I'm going to teach you and wait yourself. You decide if your level is low, medium or high. Use low. If you have to prove yourself a lot, use medium if you already possessed the skill. But if you think that you have to improve yourself and finally use high. If you think that your letter off the skill is pretty cold, I don't foresee toe share old off your skills with us. But at least Pickman low medium involved high skill and share them with our community In addition, you can ask one of your friends toe weight yourself, and then you can compare your ratings with the weightings went came up with, and then you can see if you think about yourself the same way as your friends think about you. 2. Stealing from the great: the first kill I'm going to share a few is the ability off stealing from the create. If you want to be successful, you must learn to steal or even model. Modeling is a process off going in and figuring out what the expert does. If you want to be successful in life, find someone who is great and attach. Tow them at the hip. Let's take sports as an example. Every kid who plays soccer has his or her favorite player. This player is a role model for a kid, and it wants to play escort as he or she does. One way to come one step closer to this goal is to try to copy his or her skills and movements. Trace could help the kids to become one day. As good as his idol is 3. Get yourself together: the second skill. I want to talk about itself disciplined with self discipline and endurance, you can acquire almost every skill. We all make the solutions throughout the year. The only thing stopping us from completing these resolutions is ourselves and in a voice stops us from waking up early in the morning, a meeting, new people. If we have proper self discipline, we can suppress this voice and live a life that is defined by our own rules. The important part here is not to give up. Instead, you should keep trying and trying until you succeed. For example, Thomas Edison failed about 10,000 times before his first prototype off the electric light bulb worked. Take him as inspiration to never give up and always try until you succeed. 4. Think outside the box: in this video, we're focusing on the ability to think differentially. Thinking outside the box is a metaphor that means to think differently unconventionally or from a new perspective. This can really help you to find new solutions to existing problems. If you are the own live on the first or the best one to solve a problem, you will stand out from the crowd, do something better than anyone else in the world, even if what you do best has a very tiny niche being able to do something that 10 million other people can do While potentially important, it's likely not nearly as well about as having a skill that is unique. So find your very own niche and develop some unique skills and succeed. 5. Turning obstacles into opportunities: in this lesson, I'm going to tell you how to turn an obstacle into an opportunity. Obstacles are everywhere a week, a broken by it, the strong survive it and the great turn it into opportunities. What matters most is not what the's obstacles are, but how we see them, how we react to them and whether we keep our composed. Most startups, other suit off, someone being annoyed by problem and trying to solve it. These entrepreneurs committed himself to solve this problem and further on make business out off them. For example, if Mark Sakaba had not wanted to solve the problem of staying connected with his friends from Harvard, we wouldn't be able to use Facebook today. 6. Reading quickly: in this lesson, I tell you why Reading speed really matters. Learn to read very quickly with high retention. Tony Robbins taught himself to speed read by reading one book at a day well in Puffins and Charlie Manja spent 80% off the day reading, 86% off which people love reading. It is one off the few skills that can directly create other skills. There are multiple tricks to improve your reading speed, one I mentioned before in my other video cost cold. Boost your productivity with this website. There, I talked about ST dot com. The word screed er is a combination off speed and reader, and it's an online platform where you can enter a text and it helps you to read this text in a very short time and even improve your speed off reading. Take a look at it. It's awesome. 7. Not taking criticism personally: this video. It's not about taking criticism personally. You may have heard the advice. Don't take it personally when you have Bean told something about yourself that was helpful , but that surprised you or that you disagreed with. It's hard not to take it personally. Off course. It's personal, You might think. Whenever we are engaged in a heated discussion with someone, we tend to listen more with the attend off, replying and actually understanding his point of few we tried to combat by bringing things from the past and let our preconceived notions about the other person cloud our judgment. Remember, one of the most important rules off all conversations. Always respond to the points off your opponent, not toe his behavior. 8. Making people smile : welcome to the next part of Marcus. A very important, but how to master a skill is to make people smile, making people love and not hurt anybody's feeling. It's not an easy task that people with this beautiful skill comtech any situation. I'm not talking about entertainers talking about this kind off. Always in a good mood. People. I think all of you might know one off these, the ones that enter a room and the sun rises. These people are able to share their good mood with other people and infect them with the happiness. For sure, this people also have the bed moment, but they don't share them with us. These people have a real advantage against most off the other people because they can interact and most off the situations, just by making the other people smile and be liked. 9. Articulating what you think and feel: this video is about articulating what you think and feel. It's extremely important for a person to learn to put into words what he or she thinks it makes a relationship last. It creates an impression on the person you're talking to. It gives you a chance to explore what others think about your years. It's also important for you to talk about what you feel holding back your feelings because you're afraid to express them won't make you happy. Instead, it will always be on your mind and act as kind of a distraction. 10. Knowing what you don't know: in this gas tell you why it's so important to know what you don't know. The only difference between the guy who achieves his own definition off success and the guy who doesn't is that one off them knew what questions to ask one off them knew what needed to be improved upon. One off them decided to be honest about what it is they don't know if you know where your knowledge and you know where you can start to build powerful partnerships that help each other. It's also very important to stake right instead of talking about things you don't know, because this could let to losing your credibility. Remember, it's always okay to say that you don't know the answer to a question. In fact, this is even better than taking the risk of trying to guess the right answer. Probably telling a lie 11. Charisma: this video is about charisma. Charisma is a magnetic energy equality that expresses confidence and strength, arousing loyal ITI and admiration from others. You can be broke on intelligent, foolish, off, physically unattractive and still be successful if you have the ability to make other people want to help you. Charismatic people are easy to recognize. They're the ones you can't help. But look, they make other people feel good about themselves, always present in the moment in your conversation and half an uncanny ability to inspire trust. Developing charisma isn't an easy process. It is something that will take some time and effort. However, your efforts will be well spent in the moment you begin putting your harassment of tricks. 12. The ability to accept and move on: in this video I tell you about the powerful ability to accept and move on. Accept that life can't always be the way you want except that not everyone in the world can behave the way you want them to accept that you can't make everyone happy Except that worrying won't do any good Except that your happiness lies in your hands. If we accept, these life will be much simpler. We can't change the past So don't waste time about things you can't change. Always keep your foot on What's going to come next? There is one quote that really inspired me about acceptance that this reason I want to share with you except you passed without regrets Handle your present of confidence and face the future without fear. Good luck, guys. I hope you like Macaws. Don't forget to wait. Ability Project. I'm happy to hear from you
