What I Learned today (07/04/21) - What are the stages in developing a skill?

Yesterday I learned about How and Where to start in Personal Development . As a continuation, today I learned the common 4 stages in developing our-self in any skill we need to improve. What are those common 4 Stages? These 4 stages are called "Four Stages of Competence" or "Conscious Competence learning model" . Lets see the four stages 1. First Stage - Unconscious Incompetence In this stage, we don't have an idea about the skill or we don't know where we stand. For example, If you want to learn and play football, at first you don't know your skill levels untill you try to play. This level is called Unconscious Incompetent.  The person who wants to develop a skill, unaware about their level or unconsciously incompetent in that skill. Most people, due to fear of failure , reside in this stage without trying. To break it, all we need to do is, "DO IT NOW" attitude. 2. Second Stage - Conscious Incompetence We have tried and we have some knowle

What I Learned today (03/04/21) - Will getting up early make you successful?

Everyday is a new opportunity to learn. Yesterday it was Mindset and Today it is about the habits of successful people. I was reading various articles about successful people's habits and the quite common one among all of them are 'Wake up Early everyday'.  Yes, we know, it is a good habit, but how it make a person successful? While reading those articles, I also had a doubt. I personally know many early risers but most of them are not successful (at least in the common point of view) and few of them, they even have low self-esteem.  Then how can we tell, the above point is true? I dug some more, where I found an important thing.  Not most of the early risers are considered as successful people, but most of the successful people are early risers.  Means, not only raising early give success, but how we make use of the time and plan for the day, once we wake up gives the boost we needed to be successful. I can wake up early in the morning and play a game for 3 hours before s

What I Learned today (02/04/21) - Is it possible to get positivity from a boring environment?

Be Positive... Stay Positive... We have heard these words almost from every positivity blogs, videos and speeches.  And whenever we read, watch those articles, we have a gush feeling but when we turn to reality that feeling fade. While seeing a pile of papers at our desk or long meetings in our calendar or thinking about the repetitive work, we feel drained and wonder, how to be positive in a boring day life. But what if someone tells you that you can be actually be positive and also change that boring life into an enthusiastic one, do you believe? It is what I learned today. I have come across a tweet about getting a targeted amount of followers.  What is new in it? Won't everyone in social media is thriving for the same?  Everyone tries to become popular, but only few masters it. The tweet I have read is about how the person is planning to gain followers, an open strategy he tweeted.  If you are in social media and started with zero (if you are not a popular person), you know th

What Srini Learned today (01/04/21) - Is it possible to be rich and contented?

"Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links, that means, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click and purchase from the links."   There is a saying 'If you didn't learn anything new in a day, you have wasted the day' . So I am planning to learn something new everyday and share it with you all.  What I learned today? I started reading the book 'The Psychology of Money' (Affiliate link) by Morgan Housel. In the beginning of the book, there is a comparison between two men.  First one, 'Ronald Read' who was a Gas station attendant and Janitor for a long period of time but using tiny savings, made a fortune of $8 million . On the other hand, 'Richard Fuscone' - a Harvard MBA, Vice Chairman of a finance institute, went broke in his late years. I am always an avid reader of self development books. But this story changed something in my perception . I am  not gonna dive into who's policy is right a

Srini's Nice reads

"Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links, that means, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click and purchase from the links."   What is the first step of success?   People used to say failure is the first step of success but I beg to differ. Trying is actually the first step of success.  Plenty of people dreams about something they want to achieve, but have not started yet. Do you know why? The Fear of failure. The fear of failure comes, when we don't believe in ourselves. Henry Ford quote that " if you think you can or you can't, you are right ". So people who believe they fail, always think about failure and they won't start their dream projects.  Now we may have a question, How to believe in ourselves? To be frank, we need someone to tell us that we are worthy of our dreams and capable to achieve what we need if we feel low. But in realty, the people who surround us judge our efforts by their capacity and ac

A Belief can change life

In the last post ' Path to Success ', we discussed about success. As a small recap, let's see the steps, 1. Belief 2. Setting Goal 3. Targets 4. Time Management In this post, lets see briefly about Belief .  What is a Belief? A belief is something we feed to our mind. It may be a scientific fact or a religious fact, but until you believe it is true, it is strongly recorded in your mind. How it will help in getting success? Believing, that you will be succeed, is the first step in getting success. If you don't even believe in yourself, who is gonna believe you? Let me try to explain the relation between the belief and success. Psychological experts divide our mind into two parts, conscious and subconscious minds. Conscious mind is argumentative . But subconscious mind is passive . Whatever you feed to your conscious mind, it will be accepted by your subconscious mind. Subconscious mind follows the orders and make the environment according to our belief. In Dr. Joseph

Path to Success

SUCCESS!!! There are a lot of blogs, videos, and courses trying to explain what is success and how to achieve it . This is an intro post for a series of posts about my personal experience/thoughts about Success and how I am trying to achieve it.  I have read a lot of books on self-development and a common link between all of them in one word is ' belief ' .     If you want to get succeed, you have to believe that you will succeed.  But is the belief enough? No Without action, it is just a belief. How to make your belief into some action, which will make you succeed in your passion or work? Where to start and what to start? Here comes the major part - Goal Setting . If you turn your belief into a Goal, it becomes achievable.  Once Goal setting is done, if you set the roadmap for your goal with daily, weekly, monthly Targets, it becomes actionable. It may sound a little boring, but slicing the goals into small achievable action items makes it easier to achieve the larger goa
