Did you know that public speaking is often rated the number one thing people are afraid of? But while getting up on a stage in front of an audience can definitely be nerve wracking, many people find striking up a conversation one-on-one just as intimidating.
Maybe it’s the CEO of your company, a new colleague, the guy in the mail room, the girl from IT, or a stranger in the street. Whomever you want to talk to, there’s a way to strike up a conversation. And the best news is that it gets easier with practice.
Try these conversation starters to talk to absolutely anybody:
Skip the small talk.
“What’s up with this weather?” and “How ‘bout them [insert local sports team]?” are as bad as cheesy pick-up lines when it comes to starting a conversation. Avoid tired topics. Every situation is unique, so you should be able to find a unique conversation starter.
Ask for their opinion.
Everyone has one! For someone you don’t know well, start with light subjects like the food, the music, the atmosphere, etc. “Do you like your Margaritas with salt or without? Do you watch horror movies? Do you like this song?” It’s probably best to stay away from really sticky subjects like politics unless you already know the person very well.
Ask for their advice or recommendations.
This works very well when commenting on someone’s outfit or accessories, as in “What a great tie! Where did you get it?” or on the food, as in, “Everything looks good. What are you having?”
Ask them a question — that’s easy to answer.
This is great when you know or find out that a person has expertise in a particular field. If you’re talking to your company’s IT guy, for example, you could ask him whether he’s the guy who installs hardware or software. But avoid asking anyone to explain something super complex or involved; if that’s where the conversation leads, great, but asking a really complicated question up front can feel demanding.
Comment on the environment.
No matter where you are, there are things to comment on: the music, the food, the lights, the guests, and so on. Even if you are stuck in an elevator with someone, you can comment on the music, the speed, the crowdedness, etc.
Ask for an update.
If you know someone a little or know them by reputation, ask for an update on something you know they’ve been doing, for example, “Oh, Mary mentioned you were taking swing dance classes. How’s that going?”
Ask open-ended questions whenever possible.
If your question can be answered with a simple yes or no, don’t be surprised if that’s what you get. Having follow-up questions ready can also help the conversation flow. If you are asking what kind of food they’re having, for example, you might follow up with, “That sounds good. Do you know what kind of wine would go well with that?” Almost everything can be followed up with, “Why?” (Just don’t ask it too many times and end up sounding like a three-year-old!)
Ask a hypothetical question.
These can be great conversation starters, but try to tie them into something happening at the event or in current events to avoid seeming too random. You might say something like, “I just saw this movie where all the laws were revoked for one day. What would you do if there were no laws for a day?”
Ask about their kids, pets, or hobbies.
People love to talk about the things that are important to them. If you know that your boss loves to sail, asking him about his latest trip is a surefire way to get him talking.
What kind of girl will you be ten years later?
You girls who are in your twenties, have you ever think about what kind of girl you'll be ten years later?
While chatting with my sister, I notice that her status has changed. It goes, 'Time is the knife of a butcher’. I ask her why. She doesn't answer but sends me a picture. It is a woman with a baby in her arms. The woman is fat and jowly with casually short hair. Her jeans go tightly with her fleshly legs and bulging belly. Her light beige coat is a common one, but her smile, which would appear on the face of any mother, tells her happiness. 'Do you still remember Tingting?’ my sister asked. I'm shocked. How can I forget? Tingting is my sister's schoolmate in high school. In my memory, she was thin and tall with dark skin and short hair, too. But she looked cool and shiny then. Now she is twice or more fatter than she was. Sister sends me another picture. This time, it is a woman with plain curl hair, a little fat body, sitting on the bed with a plush toy in arms and smiling. You can't deny her beauty. However, it is true that she is the kind of woman who has lost her bloom and would not catch any attention in crowd. 'She is Seagull.' my sister surprises me again. My sister is four years older than me. I was in middle school when she was in high school. But I was quite familiar with her classmates. At that time, I think Seagull was the most beautiful one of my sister's friends. She kept long hair and sometimes bound it up into two. She was thin and looked pretty in dress, just like Sailor Moon. Years passed away. I didn't meet my sister's classmates any more. But beyond my expectation, they've changed so much even when they're younger than 30. 'Now you can understand the meaning of my status.' said my sister. Yes! I smiled to accept the shortness of women's youth. Now I understand why nowadays more and more women would like to say to The Third Woman that we all had youth and charm before.
All of the characteristics HR looks for in a job candidate are the polar opposite of what enlightened leaders seek in new talent. While HR is tediously focused on making certain that candidates "play well in the sandbox," strong managers want those who don't venture near the proverbial box. Which creates a conundrum and a paradox:to get to the latter you need to lie to the former. As well you should. Why be held hostage to a broken system?
Case in point: the HR person will likely ask you if you work well with others? Well, many of the smartest and most innovative people on the planet simply don't. Not that they are trouble makers or in any way venal but they simply prefer to work alone, creating marvels of software, mathematical formulas or extraordinary feats of creativity. But can they tell HR:
"No. I don't really like working with others. I guess you can say I do my best work by myself. My professors at MIT used to call me a 'loner.'"
HR's universal reaction to this honest response would be "Next." Einstein and Newton would have failed their test.
For years, my firm worked with a hedge fund that invests capital based on quantitative strategies, developed by their team of math and physics brainiacs. None even pretend to enjoy the social aspects of the work environment. For them, it is all about hibernation, concentration and introspection. They never stepped into a a sandbox as kids and they aren't about to start now.
Over the course of an intense year when we examined and adjusted many of the practices of the fund, management came to recognize that the caliber of the candidates coming to them for second-stage interviews was way down below the quality hierarchy. On closer examination, we discovered the HR filter was turning the best and the brightest away before they could be seen by senior fund managers -- all geeks and loners in their own right. The solution was simple: HR was limited to managing the fund's employee benefits and policies and completely removed from the hiring process.
Another HR question that demands a lie goes like this:
"So tell me why you want to work for our company."
In many cases, the honest answer would be:
"I think this is the best place to make a fortune before I'm 35. I really want a chunk of those stock options."
But to the HR paint-by-numbers gang, that would lead to a fast dismissal out the fire exit. To get to the next-stage interview you have to lie, waxing poetic about the company's innovative culture or lionizing it's irreverent founder (who, by the way, is eager to have brilliant wealth-seeking hot shots on the team).
The old adage "Just be yourself," is a fool's game when it comes to the hiring process. Instead, at the outset, you need to be what HR wants you to be. And in most cases, you need to (and very well should) lie to win a pass to see the real players in the company. The ones with a 180 degree different (from HR) perspective on life/business/success and how to get what you want in your career.
Look, I don't believe in making lying a way of life--in fact, I appreciate blunt and honest people and think of myself in this way. But when a system is stacked against the truth, dance around it.
---by William Butler Yeats
When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look,
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled,
And paced upon the mountains overhead,
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
威廉·巴特勒·叶芝（William Butler Yeats），是爱尔兰诗人、剧作家和散文家，著名的神秘主义者，也是“爱尔兰文艺复兴运动”的领袖，艾比剧院（Abbey Theatre）的创建者之一。叶芝的诗受浪漫主义、唯美主义、神秘主义、象征主义和玄学诗的影响，演变出其独特的风格。叶芝的艺术代表着英语诗从传统到现代过渡的缩影。
Personal branding through social media may help you build your professional network, but there will never be a replacement for a charismatic personality.
Napoleon Hill, author of "Think and Grow Rich" — one of the top-selling books of all time — wrote about the habits of the most likable people in his essay "Develop A Pleasing Personality," published in the forthcoming collection "The Science of Success."
He introduced his steps to having a "million-dollar personality" by explaining it was steel magnate Charles M. Schwab's charming demeanor that in the late 19th century elevated him from day laborer to an executive with a $75,000 salary and a frequent million-dollar bonus (astronomical numbers for the time).
Schwab's boss, the legendary industrialist Andrew Carnegie said "the yearly salary was for the work Schwab performed, but the bonus was for what Schwab, with his pleasing personality, could get others to do," Hill writes.
Here are Hill's 14 habits of people who are so likable that others go out of their way to help them:
They develop a positive mental attitude and let it be seen and felt by others.
It's often easier to give into cynicism, but those who choose to be positive set themselves up for success and have better reputations.
They always speak in a carefully disciplined, friendly tone.
The best communicators speak deliberately and confidently, which gives their voice a pleasing sound.
They pay close attention to someone speaking to them.
Using a conversation as an opportunity to lecture someone "may feed the ego, but it never attracts people or makes friends," Hill says.
They are able to maintain their composure in all circumstances.
An overreaction to something either positive or negative can give people a poor impression. In the latter case, says Hill, "Remember that silence may be much more effective than your angry words."
They are patient.
"Remember that proper timing of your words and acts may give you a big advantage over impatient people," Hill writes.
They keep an open mind.
Those who close themselves off from certain ideas and associate only with like-minded people are missing out on not only personal growth but also opportunities for advancing their careers.
They smile when speaking with others.
Hill says that president Franklin D. Roosevelt's greatest asset was his "million-dollar smile," which allowed people to lower their guards during conversation.
They know that not all their thoughts need to be expressed.
The most likable people know that it's not worth offending people by expressing all their thoughts, even if they happen to be true.
They don't procrastinate.
Procrastination communicates to people that you're afraid of taking action, Hill says, and are therefore ineffective.
They engage in at least one good deed a day.
The best networkers help other people out without expecting anything in return.
They find a lesson in failure rather than brood over it.
People admire those who grow from failure rather than wallow in it. "Express your gratitude for having gained a measure of wisdom, which would not have come without defeat," Hill says.
They act as if the person they are speaking to is the most important person in the world.
The most likable people use conversations as an opportunity to learn about another person and give them time to talk.
They praise others in a genuine way without being excessive.
"Praise the good traits of others, but don't rub it on where it is not deserved or spread it too thickly," Hill says.
They have someone they trust point out their flaws.
Successful people don't pretend to be likable; they are likable because they care about their conduct and reputation. Having a confidant who can be completely honest with them allows them to continue growing
I recently worked as overseas sales intern in Miaxis Biometrics Co.,Ltd.
Besides releasing products on the Alibaba International, I also has to market on Twitter and facebook. How I market on these social networks is shown as follows.
As a small memeber in such big social networks, it is hard for search engine to hunt you down. So you should find some big trees to lean on. Seek keywords that is relevant to your business. Accounts with more followers has higher placing. Follow them, retweet their status and comment on their status. Grasp every opportunity to mention your product or your company.
Peers are good references. After you done releasing product, you'll find that you have nothing to release to keep your account active. Go find out what your peers do, what website they usually visit. Find the original link, don't just retweet it. If so, when your follower want to see more about your status, they click and go back to the original tweet. You are indirectly lead them away. Push them to others. On the other hand, share the original link of a passage will give others a feeling that you are constantly focusing on the line.
Carefully set your background. put up pictures of dominant products of your company.
Send festival greetings to improve your exsistance and strengthen the connection between you and your followers.
Connect facebook with twitter. Then twitter will automatically release news for you on facebook. Skip repeating and save your time.
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard？
'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard.
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise.
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
Out of the huts of history's shame
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
经典英文诗歌Still I Rise《我仍将奋起》是玛娅.安吉罗的代表作，被制作成了公益广告，多年来不断在美国各大电视台上播放，为广大电视观众所耳濡目染。这首诗歌作品是继马丁。路德。金的著名讲演《我有一个梦想》之后，美国黑人争取民权运动的又一重要代表作。跟其他的电视广告词一样，它被人们背的滚瓜烂熟。

Everyone is born with the ability to learn. But whether or not you can do this well depends on your learning habits. Research shows that successful learners have some good habits in common.
Studies show that if you are interested in something, your brain is more active and it is also easier for you to pay attention to it for a long time. Good learners often connect what they need to learn with something they are interested in. For example, if the need to learn English and they like music or sports, they can listen to Englis songs or watch sports programs in English. This way they will not get bored.
Good learners think about what they are good at and what they need to practice more. Remember, "use it or lose it "! Even if you learn something well, you will forget it unless you use it. Practice makes perfect. Good learners are also not afraid of making mistakes. Alexander Graham Bell did not invnet the telephone overnight. He successded by trying many times and learning from his mistakes.
It is not enough to just study hard. You have to know how to study. Good learners find out the best way to learn well. For example, they may take notes by writing down key words or by drawing mind maps. Good learners also look for ways to review what they have learned. They may do this by reading their notes every day or by explaining the information to another student.
Good learners often ask questions during or after class. They even ask each other and try to find out the answers. Knowledge comes form questioning.
Learning is a life long journey because everyday brings something new. Everything that you learn becomes part of you and changes you, so learn wisely and learn well.
