When you negotiate, how strong are you? To be more exact, how strong is the image you project, your position, and the proposition that you make? Your positioning and image play a great role in the general outcome of the negotiation.
When you negotiate, does one ‘look’ the part you are portraying? Do you cast the looks of a successful individual, if that is the role you are portraying?
My motto is, ‘You are continuously negotiating”. From the instant you enter into a conversation with somebody that you may be bartering with in the future, you are negotiating.
To the degree you speak a bound way, display bound mannerisms, or use body language to convey an unspoken thought, you can move the other person in one direction or the other.
You must remember of the background, perceptions, and attitude of the person you’re negotiating with. If you raise your voice past what is thought of to be normal in some environments, you are not perceived as being upset or angry; while in alternative environments you’ll be thought-about rude, obtrusive, or downright unmanageable. That is why it’s therefore vital to perceive the makeup, the characteristics, and value system of the opposite person.
If you understand the mental makeup of the other person, and have a true appreciation for the needs they ask for, you’ll produce a chasm of emotions and still be within the boundaries of somebody that is considered to be negotiating from strength, not anger.
What should you are doing if somebody becomes rude or angry with you when negotiating? First, verify if it is a tactic. If you conclude they’re actually upset regarding the direction in that the negotiation is headed, decision a trip and attempt to perceive why the opposite person feels the way they do. If they are using anger as a tactic and they attempt to lift the stakes and you don’t wish to look to be weak, push back. Sometimes you have to lift the stakes in order to induce the other person to ante up.
You’ll be able to be stern and fair without being abusive; the perception is in the delivery. I recall a time when I was on a flight and requested an additional meal (I’m half-dozen’ two”, 220 lbs. and I’ve got a healthy appetite). The flight attendant bent over, smiled, leaned shut to my ear, and said, no. After that she stood upright, turned and walked away. I believed to myself, wow, my request was just denied, however I feel good. In essence, continuously remember of the style and manner in which you deliver your words. You’ll be able to deliver the identical words during a fiery tone, or one that’s conveyed via a consolatory manner and therefore the message can be perceived differently.
There can be times when folks can portray a way of anger, as perceived by the person they are negotiating with, when what the opposite person is extremely projecting may be a sense of strength. How can you establish if somebody is expressing themselves through real anger versus strength? First consider …
1. Wanting at things from the other person’s perspective. Do they need a reason to be upset (unemotionally, place yourself in their place)?
2. Assess from your perspective, what’s the supply of their anger?
3. Assess your reasoning on the legitimacy of the opposite person being angry.
4. Determine what you’ll be able to do to change their angered way of thinking?
5. Allow them to know you understand them as being upset (watch the words you employ at this point. A word like ‘upset’ might sound less volatile than ‘angry’ to the opposite person.)
6. Supply a solution, couched in ‘if’ we have a tendency to can do ‘x’, would that alleviate things (You do not want to administer away anything needless, without knowing you’ll get a come back, one thing of value, on your offer. So, the rationale you employ ‘if’.)
By following the steps higher than, you’ll be able to reposition the mental mindset of the opposite person. If done properly, at that point, you will gain a footing of strength within the negotiation … and everything will be right with the world.
The negotiation lessons are …
? Invariably be mindful of the opposite person’s frame of mind when negotiating. By being attentive to their mind set, you’ll gain insight into what ways to travel towards the successful outcome you seek.
? If you are positive someone is using anger as a tactic throughout a negotiation, allow them to understand you are responsive to what they’re doing. Suggest during a mild manner that both of you negotiate more sincerely.
? If the person you are negotiating with is simply too hot headed to peruse the negotiation, decision a trip or recess till they cool down. If the least bit possible, never negotiate with somebody when they’re in an angry state of mind.
The perfect eater, if one exists, would be the person who only eats according to the body’s needs. If we did only this, we’d be the perfect weight, and we wouldn’t be worried about weight-loss at all. Unfortunately, many other things-emotions-cause us to eat as well, including sadness, frustration, boredom, anxiety, anger and insecurity. Worse, we are completely in the dark and unaware of these hidden feelings wreaking havoc on us. . ‘Mindful eating’, the practice of paying attention to your urges, feelings and thoughts, and to the food’s appearance and taste, from moment to moment, can help foster an awareness of when and why these emotions arise, thereby sapping them of their power to control our lives, and help us to lose weight, according to Jan Chozen Bays, MD, in the book ‘Mindful Eating’.
And these eating patterns are deeply engrained in us-they are completely automated habits, and are as natural to us as the way we walk or stand. We’re quite comfortable with them, thank you very much, as we’ve lived with them our whole lives. So think about how difficult it is to go lose weight-that is, to try and replace a lifetime of eating habits-bad ones, but happy, comfortable habits nonetheless-with a whole new set of healthy eating habits. Changing these habits is probably one of the steepest challenges we could face, as neither the mind nor the body really wants to change from all that it has ever really known. That’s why it’s so difficult, and so stress-inducing. Ever notice how you feel when you start a diet? Grumpy, right? Just like the cigarette smoker trying to quit. Our habits are really not much different than a wild horse. We have to break these habits and tame our horse, just like a cowboy. And just like the horse, our habitual patterns of body and mind will try and resist. This is the approach we must take.
Try this simple mindful eating exercise to get your weight-loss kick-started: take a raisin, or a cherry, or some small bite-sized piece of fruit. Look at it. Just look at it. Notice its color, its texture. You might even mentally say to yourself, ‘Brown’ or ‘Red’ or ‘crinkly’, etc. You can use this mental noting for every step. Notice what you’re thinking. (You may well be thinking this is dumb, but that’s ok! Just note to yourself, ‘Thinking it’s dumb’) Notice what you’re feeling and especially try and notice any urges you might have, whatever that might be, whether it’s to give up, to rush the food into your mouth, etc.
Lift the food up to your mouth. Be aware of your hand moving. Notice the food entering your mouth. Don’t chew yet! See how the food feels on your lips and tongue. Do you taste it yet, even though you haven’t chewed? Notice that. Notice if you’re in a hurry. Be aware of any saliva building up in your mouth.
Now begin to chew. Notice how you chew. Do you favor one side? Keep noticing. It is especially critical to keep paying attention here. Notice the urge to swallow. Do you feel like you ‘have’ to swallow at a certain point in time, or after a certain number of chews? Try and chew the food until it is completely disintegrated, until it’s just a watery mush. Notice your thoughts, your feelings. How do you feel? Does it taste good? Are you aware that it tastes good? Did the feeling of it tasting good continue throughout, or did it stop at some point? Do you feel satisfied? Do you want more? There are no right or wrong answers. And it’s ok, and expected, that you’ll lose your attention and forget. Just come back to the awareness. This is the basis for the entire process and can be done for the whole meal, with whatever you are eating.
This is only the beginning of the mindful eating journey, the first step to losing weight permanently. When you start becoming aware of your harmful eating habits you can start replacing them with healthier ones. Do this exercise once a day, at just one meal, for as long as you can, and see what happens. See if things start to change for you, in both mind and body. Please email me if you have any questions.

Not all of the schools today have all of the necessary finances to support all of their programs and activities. In their effort to maintain the quality of education that their students get, they strive to form different preschool fundraising campaigns. If your preschool is facing the same type of dilemma, you should definitely lift your butt off of that couch and start thinking of different unique fundraiser ideas that will help you raise money effectively and easily.

Tons of activities can be turned into fundraiser programs. First off, you can try asking for solicitations from business establishments and individuals in your community. This will help you generate funds easily and without too much effort. However, it would be better for you to try out activities that offer something worthwhile to people in exchange for their support. In this manner, you won’t feel bad at the thought that you’re just asking money from people without giving them something in return. There are basically three types of fundraisers namely product sales fundraisers; fundraising events; and fundraisers that offer services. As their name implies, product sales involves selling different products such smencils, cookie dough, wristbands, scented candles, flower bulbs, discount cards, and many others. Fundraising events on the other hand are those that involve a variety of activities such as talent shows, movie nights, carnivals, and go-kart races. Fundraisers that offer services include car washes, walking pets, pet baths, and cleanups.
No matter type of fundraiser you do, you need to know that things won’t work out well for you like magic. By this, you need to know that a considerable amount of effort needs to be exerted so that a campaign can be made into something profitable. A good way to start your efforts would be through laying down plans, goals, and objectives. These three things are vital because they will help lead you to where you need to go. In other words, they serve as the navigational tools of your fundraiser program.
When you make plans, make sure that you stick to them whole-heartedly and be sure to get everybody in your team involved when formulate these things. In this way, you can foster unity within your group.
1.This Christmas season only do the things you look ahead to doing, delegate the rest out. If you do not have the mind to put the tree up – do not put the tree up. A beautiful bouquet or a candle arrangement could also spread good cheer. Ask for assistance where and when needed like asking the neighbors teenage daughter to wrap your gifts. Do not act like a martyr and think you can do it all yourself. Even if you can it is more impressive to successful delegate, organize and permit other people to participate.
2.Purchase on-line as much as possible to avoid the stress of long lines at the stores and post offices, gnarled traffic and perhaps not finding what you are looking for anyway. Order several gifts from the same company to reduce the number of companies you buy from… Many companies now gift wrap and will send it out on time providing of course you purchased it on time. Recommendations: Wine stores or groups (sometimes a wine a month), gift basket companies, magazine subscriptions, tickets to events such as the ballet, opera, live performances, flowers, books, gourmet food items, gift certificates to restaurants.
3.Book manicure, pedicures, massages, hairstylist and colorist in October for December bookings. That way you get the appointment you choose rather than accommodating your life to fit around your stylist or estheticians program.
4.Take time to enjoy the season in calm relaxing ways such as taking a walk to enjoy Christmas lights. Listen to carolers in the park or Christmas music on your own CD while you curl up before the fireplace. Just ensure its a calm time to give your self a minute to breathe and just be.
5.Continue to follow your usual workout routine. Youll feel better because you did and you would not have to beat yourself up after for not exercising. Exercise is a great stress reducer.
6.Find a way to be innovative. Ingenuity helps reduce stress. Whether its building a snow man, decorating tarts, creating an arrangement. Put a new twist or a new stamp on something. You would find your enthusiasm and excitement would begin to sore the more creative you become.

Colic has been defined differently for decades now. Wikipedia defines it as: “A condition in which an otherwise healthy baby cries or screams frequently and for extended periods without any discernible reason.” MayoClinic’s definition is: “Colic is often defined as crying more than three hours a day, three days a week for more than three weeks in an otherwise well-fed, healthy baby.” Since there has never been a known cause or reason for colic, there has never been a cure or remedy. Since colic has been found to be more common in bottle fed babies, many researchers have had the opinion there is something gastrointestinal causing colic, though to this day there has been no reason or remedy proven.
For parents dealing with colic themselves on a daily basis, its literally a mental prison. There is no escape or off button. There is no sleep. Ever.
The feeling of not being able to respond to the childs needs, or provide something needed to the baby, can bring about depression, stress, exhaustion, low self-esteem as a parent and/or anxiety. Every parent wants to provide what’s best for their child. When that desire is taken from the parent, anger and helplessness sets in. Parents are not responsible for causing colic in their infants, blaming themselves does nothing to help the situation and only causes more grief. Having a baby that develps colic does not mean he/she is unhealthy.
There are some small techniques that can be used to help the situation: Try to think positive, colic almost always goes away by 3 months of age, 6 at the most. If breastfeeding, limit certain foods such as: citris, anything spicy and caffeine. Give a warm bath and rub the baby’s stomach.
Swaddle baby and go for a walk outdoors if possible. Go for a long drive and give baby a pacifier. Sometimes it becomes so overwhelming for parents, taking a break and getting away for a bit is ideal. For this approach, call a trusted family member or friend to watch baby. TRUSTED is the key work here. Parents should consider risks of shaken baby syndrome, this is a severe form of abuse caused by an inexperienced sitter who resorts to violence due to the stress of a constantly crying baby.
There are online support groups for parents of colicky babies. When you talk to other parents who are going through the same situation, it helps tremendously.
