How to Build a Positive Self Esteem

What do you do after founding one of the most successful corporations in the world & then discovering one fine day that venture capitalists made the moolah, while you were neither too rich nor particularly wanted in your own company. Most people would think of this as a nightmare or probably get depressed or indulge in self pity. But, if you have self-esteem anywhere close to Jim Clark, all you need to do is start all over again. And do it with inimitable style. That's exactly what the entrepreneurial & gutsy Clark did after being bounded out of Sun Microsystems. He is perhaps the first man to have founded $3 billion corporations - Netscape & Healthion.
For starters, that's what a dose of self-esteem can do for you. It can probably help you achieve the same spectacular results as Clark.

What is self-esteem?
Simply put, self-esteem is how you feel about yourself. Unless you perceive yourself as worthwhile, you cannot have a high self-esteem. And a high self-esteem is something everybody should have. It plays a major role in determining your successes & failures. If you have a high self-esteem you will grow in conviction, competence & willingness to accept responsibility. You will face life with optimism, have better relationships & ultimately live a fulfilling life.

Advantages of High Self Esteem :

Builds strong conviction - Creates willingness to accept responsibility - Builds optimistic attitudes - Makes you more sensitive to the need of others - Makes you motivated & ambitious.
If you have a high self-esteem you have nothing to worry about. But what if you are on the other end of the spectrum & have a low self-esteem? How do you recognize somebody with a poor self-esteem? Apart from thinking negatively all the time, people with low self-esteem will be:
Gossipmongers - Have a critical nature - Have a big ego; be arrogant & believe "I know-it-all" - Close minded & self-centered - Never accept responsibility.
The objective of this list is to provide you with a basis for self-evaluation rather than produce guilt. If you have low self-esteem, all you have to do is work a little harder & you will be able to build a positive self-esteem.

Tips to Build Positive Self Esteem :

Substitute the negative into positive: All you have to do is change the way you think. Tell yourself that I am good instead of saying that I am no good. Turn those stumbling blocks into stepping stones.
Be a strong person: Refuse to let disappointments & failures pull you down. Learn to be strong both emotionally & physically. Work on yourself to look & feel good.
Compliment: Learn the art of complimenting people genuinely & receiving compliments sincerely. When somebody pays you a compliment remember to say thank you.
Accept responsibility: For what you do. Don't blame any & everything around you. Like that school student who blames his teachers & the education system for his failure.

Try to inculcate these tips in your life & you will have a high self-esteem & consequently a happy & rewarding life.

Bachpan se bada koi school nahi, curiosity se badi koi teacher nahi.
There is no greater school than childhood and no greater teacher than curiosity.

Parle G(the largest selling brand of biscuits in the world) asks parents to encourage their child's curiosity and creativity in its campaign called 'Kal ke genius'. While the song has an '80s feel, it is the soul of the film and is written, sung and composed very well. The song aptly encapsulates the philosophy of the campaign. It is urging people to let their kids be just kids and let them explore if they are curious.

Parle-G's Glucose biscuits always evoke a sense of nostalgia. The ad in a nice way talks about the increasing parental control and societal pressures that make kids these days spend more time in study classes than learning through exploring new things. Curiosity is actually the best teacher. Unfortunately, it is just the kind of a thing which parents often discourage. In fact, we keep stopping children fro…

Next big thing for Smartphone's: Seeing And Understanding

A Smartphone would be able to see and understand its environment with the help of Perceptual Computing And Vision Processing.

Project Tango, an attempt to give mobile devices human-like understanding of space and motion by +Google ATAP(Advanced Technology And Projects).

Computer vision is a rich field of academic, commercial and industrial research, the implications of which extend tendrils into virtually every aspect of our lives. Anticipating needs before they arise, and understanding needs that a person might not even be aware they have, make up the broader blue sky opportunities for a tech like this.

Perceptual computing encompasses the whole field of analyzing data captured with sensors and visualization systems like cameras and infrared light. Computer vision is one component of the field, which allows devices to ‘see’ the areas around it more like a human does — or better. Getting 3D sensing onto phones, and spatial and topographic contextual awareness is table stakes for the n…

Killer tips for your new resume

Resumes could have much nicer, cleaner, more readable resumes if they would have been tweaked a bit. And none of these tweaks are hard to accomplish. So, let's start.

1. DON'T use a general resume. You cannot successfully use the same resume to apply to several different jobs. Your resume should be custom written for each job you are targeting. When you send out something generic, it shows apathy and lack of motivation. This is NOT the impression you want to send to your potential employers.

2. Start with an attractive layout. Use bold and italics to highlight key points. Not recommended downloadable templates because they are very generic and dull. Get creative but not crazy. You can use a little touch of color if you are modest.

3. Use a bulleted style to make your resume more reader-friendly. Given that employers screen resumes for between 2.5 and 20 seconds, they will find your resume a lot more readable if you use bullet points instead of paragraph style. It's just easie…
