How to Interpret Dreams

How to Interpret Dreams

How to Interpret Dreams

People from times immemorial are known to have said that our dreams are an indication of some hidden aspect in our daily real lives, that for one reason or the other, could not have been fulfilled, and as a result we are witnessing the dream for getting it fulfilled in a way. Whenever we go through any dream, it is an indication of being in some need and being unable to get it fulfilled in our real life; we thus take recourse of getting it fulfilled in dreams. Even though, many people say that, many of us still never pay heed to the fact that dreams can actually speak a lot about what we are going through in our daily lives as well as an indication of what we are looking forward to in our lives. But from a long time, many researchers have been conducting experiments behind the psychology of dreams and have actually come up with many meaningful explanations for the same. How to interpret dreams is a difficult thing and dreams can be extremely mysterious. After we have had an understanding behind the meaning of our dreams, we also at the same time need to know that dreams have the capacity to unify our body, mind as well as spirit. In fact, at the time of analyzing the meaning behind dreams, we need to bear in mind the fact that all of our experiences and current circumstances have a big impact on our interpretation of our dreams. By interpreting dreams, we get a better discovery, insight as well as understanding of our real self, which in the long run aids in further exploring our real selves. Besides, by knowing how to interpret dreams, we can gain the ability of accessing our hidden emotions, feelings and secrets within our subconscious mind. In fact, it can also be possible for predicting the events of our future from our dreams. A theory to interpret dreams is to concentrate closely on each and every detail in the dream, because the symbols gives us a guide to our unconscious mind. These details of our dreams comprise of animals which we see, characters or colors that we see around us in our dreams, emotions which we experience, numbers that we mostly count or see in our dreams, objects which we see, places that we are in, see or visit in our dreams etc.

Dreams can be bizarre or terrifying, even though at times they are pleasant as well. The simple fact that dreams can be compelling as well as rich makes many people believe in the meaning or significance behind our dreams. Even though, many researchers have conducted researches and studies on the meaning behind dreams, none have been completely successful in getting a break through in explaining the goal or purpose of seeing dreams when we are in our sleep, leave alone explaining the meaning of different dreams. In fact, G. William Domhoff, an eminent researcher, after a long research on the reason behind seeing dreams have finally come to the conclusion that dreams more or less are of no meaning or purpose and that they indicate nothing about people as well as their future and lives. However, despite this assumption of G. William Domhoff, dream interpretation as a subject nonetheless, became quite popular. Even though, research has still not been able to come up with any actual or real goal or purpose behind seeing dreams, many experts in the field believe that dreams do indicate something regarding people as well as their future and lives.

In fact, it is from the 1970s that the aspect of dream interpretation became an increasingly popular area of research as well as study among the experts and the researchers. It can be traced back to all the hard work by authors like Ann Faraday. In the book “The Dream Game,” Faraday has laid down some ideas as well as methods, that can help people find the meaning behind their dreams and discover how to interpret dreams of their own. In fact, thanks to all the research and study of such eminent experts of the field that in the modern day world, today consumers have access to a wide variety of books or matter on the field, wherein there are many dream dictionaries, symbol guides or methods for interpreting as well as understanding the meaning behind dreams. Some other experts of the field such as, Cartwright and Kaszniak maintain that the aspect of dream interpretation reveals more about the interpreter than it does regarding the meaning behind dreams. The greatest work on dream interpretation has, however, been done by Sigmund Freud, who believed that dreams are a road to the state of our unconscious mind . In fact as said before, according to Freud and as laid down in his book “The Interpretation of Dreams,” we mostly see dreams due to the fact that some of our desires, wants or wishes remain unfulfilled in our real life and to fulfill it, we see dreams, wherein we see those desires, wants or wishes being fulfilled. Freud believed that the actual events or imagery or manifest content of a dream did to disguise or hide the latent content, that is, the unconscious desires, wants or wishes of people. I fact, Freud has beautifully mentioned them in the form of four elements which are as follows ‒

  • The part called as Condensation ‒ In this dream, many different concepts or ideas are amalgamated and represented in a dream and all of the information is condensed into a single image or thought.
  • The part known as Displacement ‒ In this dream, all the emotional concept or meaning of the latent content is mingled up with the important and insignificant parts of the dream together.
  • The part of the dream called as Symbolization ‒ This dream also confuses the meaningful with the less meaningful parts of the latent content with those that are not fully expressed or cannot be found out from the dream.
  • The stage of secondary revision ‒ According to Sigmund Freud, in the last part of the dreaming process, the abstract or bizarre aspects of the dream are made comprehensible by reorganizing them and in the process, generating the manifest content.

In fact, as long as people continue to live on the earth, dreams will continue to come and so would dream research continue to generate an interest to discover how to interpret dreams as well as find out the meaning behind dreams. The goal or motto or purpose of dream interpretation is not comprehending the dream but the dreamer of the dream.

download (2)One option of seeing a good dream is to sleep well, that can be achieved by adopting the following methods ‒

  • Arrange for a conducive ambience before going to bed. Any forms of foul smell, noise, sharp bright light or even putting on uncomfortable clothes can cause bad or fearful dreams.
  • Do not consume alcohol.

  • Act as if you are striving really hard at your tasks ‒ It is a well known and proven fact that mostly people who are striving really hard at their work appear stressed out at most times. It is also essential for one to act exhausted, drink lots of coffee as well as occasionally toss papers. It is also important for you to make other colleagues of yours hear your sighs or yells at the printer when it is not working and complain that you are in a hurry, however, left with no more capacity or energy to carry on with other work by massaging the temples of the forehead.
  • Adopt the habit of using fancy industry jargon more often than others ‒ It is not essential to be actually aware of the meaning behind all that one speaks . The only thing that matters is to appear as if one actually is aware of the meaning behind the usage of all fancy industry jargon.

It is a fool-proof method to know how to fool your boss by appearing super smart.
  • Agree with other people in meetings ‒ In fact one good way of giving an impression of working hard at one’s tasks to other people and especially one’s boss is to be more visible, especially in the meetings. It goes a long way by agreeing to other colleagues and voicing out one’s agreement loudly, especially in meetings by saying ‘Uh-huh,’ ‘I like that idea’ and so on. It is not advisable for employees wanting to cast an impression on one’s boss to be quiet or silent, especially in the meetings without saying anything at all. In fact, it does not go anywhere by acquiring all of the information and listening carefully to all that has been said by other employees and sit quietly or silently in meetings. It is important to make oneself heard, as said, especially in the meetings. In fact, it pays to appear as if one is really engaged or involved in the process of the entire session of the meeting. Agreeing to other people’s opinions goes a long way by stating obvious things; however, care needs to be taken that it is not debated by any other colleague of yours.
  • Always leave after all have left the office ‒ Even though, it appears to be the opposite of what has been said so far, that is to say, to not do any work at all, it is not necessary to be engaged in only productive work after all have left the office. However, even without being engaged in any productive task, one can cast one of the best impressions on the boss by leaving last in the office, if one is wishing for a hike or promotion in one’s job. One can simply spend these hours by calling other people up and idling their time, playing on Facebook or some other social networking sites, reading a magazine and the like. One can also make the most of this time casting a best impression on the boss by sending obligatory mails.

  • imagesCarry either a Binder, a Folder or a Laptop wherever you go, especially during office hours ‒ It can be that one is going for downloading the latest version of the Hunger Games book, but if in case one can appear as if going for a meeting or to some other office for getting some work done, chances of being spotted by one’s boss and accordingly expecting a hike or a promotion are all the more. Even going through the documents as one goes through the hall for making a call adds on to one’s chances of getting a hike or a promotion.
  • Make a list of all the things that you are currently working on ‒ Many companies conduct meetings in order to report the status of all the employees to each other, that is to say, the kind of work one is being engaged in. If one is desiring a hike or a promotion, it is essential to not only announce the most important of all projects or what all have changed or improved after the last meeting,but each and every single thing that one is engaged in. It is further essential to even let the other people know that you had e-mailed so and so and are awaiting a follow-up. The list for announcing in the status meeting needs to be of many pages.
  • Outsource all of the work to the colleagues ‒ At one point of time or the other, work needs to be actually done, no matter how much one can discover how to fool your boss. For that, however, one need not panic or worry because another solution to this is your colleagues can be asked to do a majority of the tasks by buying them a candy bowl, drinks, lunch and the like; basically one needs to to do everything required for making them like one, so that when asked to do some work on your behalf, they cannot refuse to do. It also needs to be borne in mind that all credit for the tasks can be taken, provided at times, they also are credited.
  • Schedule for meetings frequently ‒ What many people or rather companies fail to realize is that arranging frequent meetings does not mean that the company is developing or growing. In fact, holding too many meetings mean that at that particular point of time, no work is being done due to the obvious fact that it is beyond the reach of any common man to be engaged in some task while at the same time being present in a meeting. Hence, till the boss comes to realize that many meetings are a sheer waste of time, it is best advised for one wanting to find out how to fool your boss to schedule as many meetings as one can.
  • Send e-mails at odd hours ‒ It is best advised to send off e-mails at night just before going to bed, if you are trying to discover ways to fool you boss. In fact, the e-mail can be as simple as casually going through a document and merely writing in the subject of the e-mail, ‘good to go.’ In fact, it is also advisable to CC or send a copy of it to a higher authority, apart from one’s immediate boss, so that, even they are aware of how sincere you are about your work. If in case, the office makes use of Outlook, one can also delay the delivery feature for sending e-mails at even 5.30 a.m. or on Sunday afternoons.

But all said and done, one can only hope or wish that all of these cheating tactics at one’s workplace does not work in most of the companies, or else productivity can suffer to an unimaginable extent. In some of the organizations, it can work for a few days; in fact, it can work for a longer duration of time than expected. However, one can only hope that it does not work in most of the organizations. In good companies, there is no fooling around and one’s work speaks for them. Besides, if one needs to climb up high in the ladder of professional growth, it is all the more required that they have to pull up their socks or else become a failure. The only good thing with the knowledge of all of these methods to fool one’s boss is that if there are colleagues of yours in the office, who are upto all of these, then you can report the same to a higher authority.

How to Dress Up for Halloween

Most of the people like to be dressed in their best forms most of the time; throughout the day or throughout their lives. In fact, hardly any individual will desire to be in a not-so-good form in their lives. This accounts for the boom in the beauty business all around the world today. In fact, this trend of appearing one’s best at almost all the time of the day has become more prominent than before. With the boom of the beauty business, more and more people, especially the womenfolk, have become more conscious about their looks and every person in the modern day world wants to appear their best as is possible at all times of the day as well as their lives. This is in sharp contrast to how or what the earlier people used to do as far as grooming their looks were concerned, wherein they needed to mainly rely on natural products for the same. The increased use of artificial products to enhance one’s appearance has done more damage than good as far as enhancing the appearance of people is concerned. One such day or occasion when people want to experiment with their appearance or looks is the day of celebrating Halloween across the different countries in the world.

Now, to understand what Halloween is all about, let us first and foremost try to find out what is meant by Halloween. In fact, Halloween is a festival, celebrated all across the world on the 31 st of October each year. Halloween is recognized by another popular name known as All Hallows’ Eve and it is celebrated a day ahead of All Saints’ Day on the 1st of November each year. On this day, costume parties are held and children are engaged in either being treated to goodies or tricking people who refuse to treat them with delicacies.

In fact, all customs that are observed in relation to Halloween are being observed from centuries ago, that is to say, exactly from the practices of the Druids and the Romans. Among the many gods that the Romans had prayed to, on the 31st of October, a feast used to be especially held as an honor of Pomona, who used to be the goddess of fruit trees. Later on, the Druids, an ancient order of Celtic priests in ancient Britain added another feature to this feast by also holding this in honor of the god of dead people, Samhain. The feast in honor of the god of the dead people, Samhain, used to be held on the 1st of November; hence, it was decided that goddess Pomona, would be honored on the 31st of October each year and god Samhain on the 1st of November.

The Druids or the ancient order of Celtic priests in Britain believed that on the night before the 1st of November, that is to say, on the 31st of October, god Samhain used to call forth all the cruel or wicked souls or spirits, who had been condemned to be in the bodies of animals during the previous year. As people were afraid of all these cruel souls or spirits, they chose the 31st of October as a day of sacrifice with the belief or hope that their god will protect them. In fact, people actually believed that on the 1st of November they were actually amidst elves, fairies, ghosts, spirits of dead people, witches as well as wizards, and that they would come out to hurt them. Besides, they also believed that cats were holy animals as well as considered these animals to have been born for representing people who were alive earlier, and because of being engaged in some evil deed, they have been reborn as a cat. This explains the reason behind cats, ghosts, goblins as well as witches being a part of Halloween celebrations.

Now, the custom of the “jack-o’-lanterns” as well as treat-or-tricking comes from Ireland. Hundreds of years ago, farmers in Ireland used to beg at one house or another for food by taking the name of their ancient gods . People who gave them food were promised good luck by them and for those of them who did not give them anything, they used to threaten them. In fact, they used to directly tell people like “Either you treat me, or else I will trick you.” ‘Jack-o’-lantern’ has its origin in Ireland and is a sign of a damned soul. Actually, a fellow by the name of Jack had been unable to enter heaven due to the fact that he was a big miser as well as not able to enter hell for he had cracked jokes on the Devil king. As a result of all of his sins, he had been condemned to keep roaming or wandering over the earth with his lantern till the judgment day, or the day, the earth comes to an end. In fact, the Irish were so afraid or scared of this fact of having to bear through the same destiny or fate or plight that they began to make holes in pumpkins and place candles by lighting them properly for driving away any evil soul or spirit. If in case, you are thinking how to dress up for Halloween, considering all that has been known so far on the origin of it, here we are laying down before you methods for the same.

One can choose a common theme for dressing up for the Halloween party and accordingly all the members in the group can dress up according to the theme you have decided for the Halloween party. Deciding on a common theme, however, does not mean that all the people in a group needs be dressed in the similar costume and make it boring for the spectators. In fact, even after having a common theme, there are chances of giving some interesting or unique differences to each other’s costume in a group. Also there is no need of going to a Halloween store when one has friends to accompany as you can dress up together for the Halloween party.

People at a Halloween party are not interested in seeing if the person in the costume is a boy or a girl. They are only interested in seeing how scarily or weirdly can one dress up for the Halloween party. In fact, dressing up according to one’s gender is only boring and as usual as the other days of the year, something which one does everyday. And there is nothing to look forward to it each day. Moreover, even if in case one appears good in a normal dress, it is not the right thing to show on a Halloween day.

One can dress in a more subdued way ‒ Many people are not sure if dressing up in a subtle manner can do the magic on a Halloween day. One need not dress up in the weirdest of ways for a Halloween party. Even a cool mask or a creative face paint combined with formal clothes gets the job done for the individual. In fact, it can be a good idea to appear different when all are dressed up in the craziest of ways as possible. Most importantly, costumes like these are flexible and can be put on in many different manners. The underlying thing for a Halloween party is to go beyond one’s expectations and do something out-of-the-box since that is what Halloween is all about.

In fact, since the 1960s many crimes are being committed, during Halloween especially on children. Candy mixed with drugs are given to children. Even older children attack younger children to eat their candies, or children find glass pieces or razor blades in their treats at the time of Halloween celebrations in the year. This is the reason why administrative officials, or the local police or parents of children advice the children to be careful when going for treats . Agreed that going for a Halloween party in a cool, original costume can be a challenge for many, but with the knowledge of all of the above methods, it need not be difficult any more for discovering how to dress up for Halloween.

This said, however, there are a number of ways for enhancing one’s looks to a great extent and this is exactly where all the various beauty salons or grooming experts or institutes have capitalized on, for attracting people, especially the female fans, who having once come across the many wonders of these beauty or grooming sessions, are encouraged or inspired for trying them over and over again for adding on to their beauty quotient. It is not just that the skin of people can be enhanced as well as made to appear clear, flawless or shiny, but even one’s hair for that matter can be enhanced to a great extent. As the factors of dandruff and hair fall can be brought under control to a considerable extent, or made to appear shiny, silky as well as smooth, in the same manner it is also possible at the same time for making our hair appear full of volume than otherwise as has been aptly shown in the numerous television commercials. It is very much possible to achieve this in reality even by common people like us and not merely the film stars. In fact, the excess amount of build up, that is to say, the residue left over from conditioners, can be removed making the hair bouncy and full of volume.

  • Some basic tips:
  • Volumizers can be applied to the roots of the hair just above the ears of the individual and after that dry the hair from the tip to the roots to allow the force of gravity to lift the hair strands away from the scalp as much as possible. This is a good way of lending height to one’s hair.
  • There are some people who simply desire to have their hair straight while at the same time also want it to be full of volume. In such a case, if you have straight hair, flat-iron merely the ends or tips of the hair. This is according to the advice or suggestion by Brian Magallones, celebrity stylist of Garnier Fructis. After that has been done, what you can do next is to flip the head over and spray a little bit of volumizing hairspray.
  • The hair of the person can be rolled up using a big barrel curling iron or even rollers for that matter. In this way, a boost can be given to the roots of the hair of the individual.
  • Use a clarifying shampoo as Tresseme Vitamin C Deep Cleansing Shampoo for getting rid of all of that filthy, messy, oily, slimy or sticky substance from one’s hair or scalp and for restoring the hair’s natural shine as well as volume.
  • Some more tips:
  • Apply a thickening or volumizing blow dry lotion on the hair for increasing its volume.
  • Another good way for adding body is to go for a layered hair cut and also at the same time, maintain it. It adds on body to one’s hair and the shorter the layers, the more the chances of adding volume to one’s hair, and if in case you are not fond of keeping the hair short for too long a duration of time, then you can choose to alter or change the styling of the hair as and when you wish to.
  • Blow drying of the hair should be done from the tips to the roots for adding a little bit of body to one’s hair.
  • downloadEven a vented brush can be used for adding a little amount of volume to one’s hair.
  • Heated rollers or a velcro can be used for the same purpose.

How body waves or perms can be used for adding volume to one’s hair:

Many people confuse as well as misunderstand when using body waves and perms. For those of you who are not very clear as to the difference between body waves and perms, body waves mostly use a bit of big sized rollers and their durability is not as perms. In fact, if there is a debate as to whether body waves or perms are better, then the answer can be probably that body waves are full of advantage in the sense that they do not frizz up even in damp or humid climatic conditions, while perms tend to frizz up on such climatic conditions even though their durability is more than body waves. But irrespective of their durability, both body waves as well as perms add body to one’s hair. However, not all brands of body waves as well as perms are comprised of the same quality as mentioned above. In fact, the best among all of them is from the brand Quantum, and if in case it is not available or out of stock, you can next choose from either Apple Pectin or Warm and Gentle brand products. In fact, you can ask the best advice from the hair-dresser for the brand of perm being applied on the hair and bear that in mind for if in case, in the future you have to change salons at least you are in a better position to ask the next hair dresser to apply the same brand products on your hair as by now you must have found out what brand product is best for your hair type.

Curlers and Rollers for adding volume to one’s hair:

Even hot rollers are used for increasing the hair volume. For that, one needs to first and foremost blow dry one’s hair and lightly apply hair spray on the hair by flipping it upside down. Next, one needs to add hot rollers to one’s hair and allow them to be in that position for some time for them to sit properly in one’ hair till the curls are set properly. The hot rollers can then be removed from the hair allowing the hair to cool down before flipping the hair upside down once again. Then a little bit of more hair spray can be added to the hair and a vent brush should be run through one’s hair for releasing the curls. Even pink foam curlers can be used at night, which should be removed in the morning followed by brushing the hair and sprucing it with the use of a curling iron. Both of these two methods are known to be extremely useful for adding body to the hair.

How to use styling products:

It is something very common that people with naturally beautiful hair have to be very careful when applying any styling product to their hair because chances of them damaging their hair are more. It mostly occurs when you apply these products quite often, in a large quantity or when you are applying it in a wrong way. In such cases the product does not do any good; in fact it worsens the hair texture you had before. If in case, one has naturally weak hair, then the mantra is to apply the products in a light manner and apply it simply on the roots of the hair. If we are to name any such styling products, we mention two such brands by the names of Nexxus and Volumax. You can apply a root liter or volumizer spray to the hair roots at the time of the hair being still damp. Next, you can choose to blow dry the hair in parts by flipping it upside down and using a big brush of a round shape as well as a blow dryer with a diffuser. You can further choose to lift up and add a bit of tension to your hair with the help of the big, round brush and aim the blow dryer’s nozzle towards the hair roots.

The use of irons for adding volume to one’s hair:

When it comes to creating body to one’s hair, certain curling irons can do wonders for people. As an example, if you are trying to add volume to your hair and using a flat iron for the purpose, you can twist it at an angle for creating a tendril curl. Even big barreled and small barreled irons work in the same way for creating body to one’s hair, whereas crimping irons need not be twisted for creating volume to one’s hair.

Now, if you have limp hair, you do not need to fret or suffer from a headache or worry for it for abiding by the above mentioned methods is definitely going to make you flaunt hair that is full of body or volume to the envy of other people around you.

How to Report Animal Cruelty

How to Report Animal Cruelty

How to Report Animal Cruelty

At one point of time or another, we have come across situations when we have seen torture being inflicted on animals, be it pet animals or wild animals. Have we at that point of time, ever wondered who gave us the authority to be engaged in all these kinds of activities. But then at that time, instead of being a mute spectator to the heinous act, have we ever wondered whether we could be of any aid to in preventing such circumstances. Or rather, do we spare a thought as to how to report animal cruelty, especially in those cases, when we are the witness to atrocities being done on a creature. However, at the same time, it is also equally true that not all acts of human beings towards animals can be considered as acts of atrocity, and there are many ways to find out which among them are taken as instances wherein the rights of the injured animal is violated and are hence liable for action on the individual committing it and being termed as an instance of animal cruelty. Has this not been so, at times, there would have been times, when even the animal behaving in a manner as a reaction of happiness in accordance with the behavior of its owner had chances of being misinterpreted by most of the people, not acquainted with the behavior of animals, in reaction to an injury being committed by the owner.

In fact, only some heinous acts, as directly causing death of a poor animal, bringing about untold misery, pain as well as suffering to the unfortunate animal by beating it up, or causing injury to it by poking it with sharp instruments can be judged as atrocities being committed on the victimized animal. Even depriving the poor animal of basic needs of maintaining life, like the mere access to clean and hygienic drinking water easily accessible to it as and when it needs, good as well as nutritious food, a safe habitat for sleeping peacefully as and when it needs to, availability of being looked after by a proper registered veterinarian when it is unwell and so on, can be taken as atrocities being committed by the owner of the unfortunate animal. If in case, any person feels that it is beyond his/her capacity to provide for all of these facilities for the poor animal, he or she has to immediately let the unfortunate animal out of captivity, in which case the poor animal can have the freedom to live in a way it desires to, instead of making it lead a miserable and wretched life. Even though there are a few general rules of what is meant by atrocities on the poor animals, there are differences in the guidelines depending on geographical location of a place. In some places of the world, there are a few communities where even something which appears to be legal, it might not appear the same to others. , Acts such as leaving an unfortunate animal in a vehicle that has been parked in the sun, the usage of a heavy chain for tying an animal for a considerable amount of time, are judged as atrocities towards the poor animal and are therefore, illegal.

The importance of reporting cases of cruelty against unfortunate animals:

imagesMany a times it so happens that because we want to avoid going through any type of embarrassment with our neighbors, who are committing heinous acts on animals and putting them in pain, we remain mute and do not report to the concerned authorities even if we constantly hear the wail of the animals, since we do not want to spoil the relation with them. Most of the times, we also have no knowledge of how to report animal cruelty and we must be aware of where to go for reporting cases of atrocities on animals as well as ensure that they are thoroughly investigated. But then there are times, when we are faced with circumstances when we see that even after making ceaseless complaints or even after lodging reports against people who have committed acts of violence on animals, we are then proved wrong about our feelings from the local humane organizations as well as the non- profit organizations dedicated to the cause, when we find them taking no actions for the solution of the cause. However, one reason for this is also the fact that, these non-profit organizations are not in a position to or given the necessary power to look after these cases even if they are brought to them by the concerned people to look into. Of course, especially in some places like the rural areas mostly, in the absence of any organization to look after all these issues of animal cruelty by humans, there are a few local human societies, which have been vested with the liberty to take care of these cases of atrocities on animals. But in these cases of heinous acts being committed on the poor animals, whether pet or wild, it is best to not solve the case by ourselves, but to ask help from the concerned people of the region who have been assigned the duty to take care of the issues. There are also places wherein, in the absence of any of these types of non-profit organizations to take care of the acts of violence on unfortunate animals, the police or the sheriff are vested with the duty or responsibility to look after all these issues. However, the only thing to bear in mind at that point of time when we witness acts of atrocities being committed on the animals is that we at least discover the means of how to report animal cruelty and not be passive spectators of the situation at hand.

One of the reasons to report such act as soon as is possible is to make sure that first and foremost of all, the animal in distress needs to be looked after as soon as is possible, and secondly the concerned individuals given the responsibility to take care of all these issues, are made known of the issues that may otherwise go unreported and these atrocities on poor animals are not made to continue anymore. The main goal behind finding out how to report animal cruelty is to ensure that these atrocious acts on unfortunate animals are put an end to, instead of allowing them to become prominent.

It is but natural for us to go through different feelings of anger, hurt, outrage, worry and the like at the death of our near and dear ones, and in the case of our other friends on earth, it should be no different. As we are overcome by anger at the sight of any cruelty or injustice done on our near and dear ones, in case of seeing a same act being committed on a poor animal, it has to be no different and for this very reason, we need to be well versed in how to report animal cruelty before it gets too late for the unfortunate animal.

How to Build Confidence

How to Build Confidence

How to Build Confidence

In the modern day world, everybody desires to be blessed with all the luxuries of life, and this is possible for most of the people only if they themselves make efforts to work hard and achieve them. Of course, in a few rare cases, some people are blessed with all of them from the time of being born, which is observed only in some cases. However, in order to be successful in life, it is essential for other people to be endowed with certain characteristics, which may not be present in everyone, wanting to be successful in his or her life. Of them, one of the most important traits is confidence. The absence of confidence or the presence of it, goes a long way in determining the extent to which one can be successful in his or her life. People with confidence have achieved many things, while other people who lack it have compromised many things in their lives only because they are devoid of this factor. If this element of confidence is so very necessary to spell success in one’s life, all attempts must be made to acquire it as far as possible. However, if you are also among those who are not aware of how to build confidence, fret not, for here in this article we would consider a few factors that will aid in building confidence in people.

It is more likely that how one perceives oneself has a major part to play in how he or she is being perceived by other people as well. It is not how other people think bad or good of us, it is how we perceive ourselves to be, which determines how we would be perceived by other people as well. Being confident is the difference between not fearing or being inhibited to do anything, or on the contrary, being fearful of the consequences before doing something. Agreed that, there are some circumstances or situations or times when we cannot but lose our confidence completely, but then with the help of the below-mentioned methods, confidence can nonetheless be built as well.

  • Be aware of what to wear and what not: When one is not dressed cleanly and properly, apart from other people, it affects his/her way of speaking with other people as well as the way he or she carries himself or herself, since at the end of the day, it is none but one’s own self that is more conscious of the manner he or she appears. When one is not dressed according to the occasion, then it is but obvious that he or she does not feel confident about himself or herself and this in turn affects the manner he or she interacts with other people. It is hence, essential to be dressed in one’s best form as is possible at all times and especially when outdoors. For this, spending a fortune on buying costly clothes is not important. What only matters is purchasing high quality clothes and not a bunch of cheap dress items, because in the long run it has been seen that cheap clothes go out of style or wear out easily and faster than costly dress items and in this manner, spending is decreased.
  • Walk faster: It can be easily found out by observing the style of walking of somebody, as to whether he or she is confident as well as feeling good about himself or herself or not. If the walking style of someone appears painful, slow or tired, it is a sign of being low in confidence level, whereas if the style of walking of somebody appears energetic and purposeful, it means that he or she has loads of confidence. It has been generally seen that people who have confidence in themselves walk with a certain quickness in their steps than people who do not have it. What one can do to build confidence is to put up a bit of pep in the steps and try to walk a bit faster than how normally he or she does. Even trying to walk twenty five percent faster than normal will make him or her appear or feel more important and in turn, boost confidence.
  • Confidence also depends on our posture: It can be readily found out from the way someone carries himself or herself as to whether he or she is confident about himself or herself or not. Generally, people with a lazy disposition or movement or slumped shoulders are believed to lack confidence. When one makes eye contact with other people at the time of conversing, keeps his or her head up, practices good posture as well as stands up straight he or she would automatically feel a gush of confidence coming in him or her. This in turn, will ensure that he or she makes a positive impression on other people, and at the same time, feel alert and empowered.
  • Prepare your own inspirational lecture: One of the best known ways to discover how to build confidence is by having the chance to go through the motivational lecture of a great speaker, opportunities of which are rare, of course. This can be compensated by preparing one’s own personal commercial or inspirational or motivational commercial, by highlighting one’s unique abilities or potential. What one can do is to either read them in front of a mirror or in one’s own head, whenever he or she is in need of a confidence boost.
  • Focus on the positive things: Instead of fretting over what one does not have, it is a best idea to divert one’s positive energies each day on what he or she has got in his or her life. These can be anything as his or her beautiful relations, his or her own unique abilities, past successes as well as positive momentum. Instead when we think what we want in our lives, the mind of its own creates reasons why we cannot get it, which in turn makes us focus more on our disabilities. Rather, being grateful for even small things makes us believe in our abilities or potential.
  • imagesConcentrate on physical fitness: It is not a matter of appearing beautiful, even being fit matters a lot when it comes to discovering how to build confidence. If in case, one is not in one’s very best of physical form, it can make him or her feel insecure, unattractive and weak. On the contrary, by working on one’s physical fitness or health, he or she can acquire something positive throughout the day, energize himself or herself as well as build on his or her physical appearance as well.
  • Try to compliment other people: Somebody who is not very confident about himself or herself gets into the habit to directly or indirectly insult and gossip about others. In order to break free from this entire negative cycle, one must learn how to compliment other people as well as not get into the habit of backstabbing other people when they are not around. This in turn, would make sure that your confidence is built and make them liked by other people.
  • Contribute for other people: As is natural in today’s times, we human beings, are mostly busy with our own selves and are busy fulfilling our own desires. What we should do on the contrary is to stop being bothered with our own needs as well as wants and concentrate more on the contribution we are making towards other people. In a way we can get rid of the worry of our own disabilities, which can further allow us to discover how to build confidence.
  • Sit ahead in the row: In the assemblies at schools, in the meetings in the offices, as well as any other public meeting, we most often than not, find most of the people trying their level best to make a seat for themselves somewhere in the back because of the fact that they are afraid of being noticed, which in turn, points out to the lack of confidence in them. One must strive to sit at the front row in such meetings and public gatherings and be rid of the irrational fear gripping them as well as build on confidence in themselves.
  • Attempt to speak up more often: It has been observed that most people do not speak anything in group discussions or meeting,since they are afraid that they may be judged for uttering something stupid. . This is not a justified because most people these days are busy looking for ways to tackle their own fear, than thinking of the insecurities and fears faced by others. Efforts should be made therefore, to speak up as often as possible.

Now that you are well versed in the secrets of discovering how to build confidence, success won’t elude you for long.
