How to become Perfect

 

There is a joke “Practice makes a man perfect and No body is perfect so why practice.” True I agree but I say why can't we act or show for sometime that we are perfect. There is no problem in it. Why can’t we take it like life is a movie and we are actor so give our best for this role. So from today believe that you have got a role and you have to show yourself as perfect.  Not for full time but for sometime, in front of others we can act like perfect and this is the key after some practice make this acting for full day and you will see that after you are doing great. I am discussing some points to do in life; these are some tips for acting of perfect.

.

 

  1. Improve your posture. Good posture will give the impression of self confidence (even if you dont feel that way on the inside). While walking, maintain a relaxed yet definitive upright posture: spine long, shoulders back, head level with the ground. This may feel awkward or overpowering to you when you first practice it, but keep trying.

 

 

  1. Eye-Contact. When your eyes come in contact with other persons, nod and smile subtly with a subdued joy shining forth. While talking makes sure your eye-contact with his/her eyes should remain. When you are talking to a group your eyes should make contact with every person’s eye in group.

 

  1. Remember people’s names when you meet them for the first time. This takes an enormous amount of effort for most people. Repeat the persons name when stating your name to that person will help you to remember it better. For example: Hi Amir, I am Prashant. Follow through with small talk and repeat the person’s name. Repeat it once more when you say goodbye. The more you say a person’s name, the more that person will feel that you like them and the greater the chance they’ll warm up to you and they feel personal touch with it.

 

  1. Orient topics toward the audience. This means taking into account topics that interest those around you, even if you are not so keen on them. If you are in a sporty crowd, talk about cricket in India 20-20 is best option these days. If you are amongst a group of Chartered Accountants talk about taxation, Financial Market etc. Point is when you talk about interest of other person they will listen to you and moreover they will be part of the discussion.

 

  1. Don’t be only fine be perfect. When you meet someone and ask “How are you?” most common reply is “ I’m fine” Why only fine say “I’m excellent”, “I’m perfect” this will show an energy in you and believe me it will generate energy in you. It is our thinking which made us. When I am ill I always say I am recovering from illness and it give me strength from inside.

 

  1. Issue compliments. Try to pick out something that you appreciate in any situation and verbally express that appreciation. If you like something or someone, find a creative way to say it and say it immediately. If you wait too long, it may be viewed as insincere and badly timed, especially if others have beaten you to it. If you notice that someone is putting a lot of effort into something, compliment it, even if you feel that there is room for improvement. If you notice that someone has changed something about themselves haircut, manner of dress) notice it, and point out something you like about it. If you are asked directly, be charming and deflect the question with a very general compliment.

 

  1. Be gracious in accepting compliments. Get out of the habit of assuming that the compliment is being given without genuine intent. Even when someone makes a compliment out of contempt, there is always a germ of jealous truth hiding in their own heart. Be effusive in accepting the compliment. Go beyond a mere thank you and enjoin this with I am glad you like it or It is so kind of you to have noticed. These are compliments in return. Avoid backhanding a compliment. There is nothing worse to a person complimenting than to receive the response Oh well I wish I was as ______ as you/that situation. That is tantamount to saying, No, I am not what you are saying I am, and your judgment is wrong.

 

  1. Control your tone of voice. The tone of your voice is crucial. Most people feel insecure somewhere inside and have an inability to accept praise. For this very reason, when you praise, do it subtly and glibly. When you say, you look nice today it should be in the exact same tone that you would use to say it’s a nice day. Any variation from your normal tone will arouse suspicion about your sincerity. Practice giving compliments into a recorder and play it back. Does it sound sincere? Practice until you get it right.. It might not sound right to you, in that case, asks someone for judgment.

 

  1. Give some time to yourself. Set aside one hour every morning for personal development matters. Meditate, visualize your day, read inspirational texts to set the tone of your day listen to motivational tapes or read great literature. Take this quiet period to vitalize and energize your spirit for the productive day ahead. Watch the sun rise once a week or be with nature. Starting the day off well is a powerful strategy for self-renewal and personal effectiveness.

 

  1. Phone technique. Always answer the phone with enthusiasm in your voice and show your appreciation for the caller. Good phone manners are essential. To convey authority on the line, stand up. This will instill further confidence in your voice.

 

  1. Become a highly disciplined time manager. There are roughly 168 hours in a week. This surely allows plenty of time for achievement of the many goals we desire to accomplish. Be ruthless with your time. Set aside a few minutes each morning to plan your day. Plan around your priorities and focus on not only those tasks which are immediate but not important (i.e., many telephone calls) but especially on those which are important but not urgent, for these allow for the greatest personal and professional development. Important but not immediate activities are those which produce long-term, sustainable benefits and include exercise, strategic planning, the development of relationships and professional education. Never let the things which matter most be placed in the backseat as compared to those that matter least.

 

So I am giving you a role in my movie of life; a role of perfect person. So start acting like perfect.
