10 Reasons Why Some People Always Seem To Know A Lot

Ferns uncurling.

10 Reasons Why Some People Always Seem To Know A Lot
Kayiba Mpoyi

Ever come across someone who really seems to know everything?
They can answer questions about any topic, any field and any place. They have general understanding and can explain either in brief or well detailed how and why?
Most of the time, these kind of people make a really good impression
and they seem to be doing pretty good for themselves professionally and in their private lives.
They seems to progress really well and pursuit excellence in all they do.
Here are 10 habits they have adopted to possess this rare skill.

1. They tend to read… A LOT
These guys are on a mission to finish every book written under the sun.
They read about everything and anything; from science fiction, textbook to business and romance. This habit opens up your brains to understanding and processing information easier and quicker.
Not only that but it also forces your brain to challenge the status quo
as you read from one publication to another that carry opposing views.
Bill Gates is an avid reader and great promoter of reading
This can be achieved by setting targets for yourself to read at least 20 pages a day every day,
in 1 year that is approximately 7300 pages which is an equivalent of? Lots and lots of books.
Bill Gates.
“I really had a lot of dreams when I was a kid,
and I think a great deal of that grew out of the fact that I had the chance to read a lot.”

2. They are curious about other people
Dale Carnegie said you can make more friends being interested in other people than in yourself. When you open your ears to other people’s lives and experiences
it can shed so much light into your own life.
The best people to listen to are people who share a different perspective than yours.
Most human beings tend to be dismissive to people who don’t see life the way they do
but hearing them out can be the most effective learning you can come across.
Achieving these skills usually requires a lot of patience and maturity to learn from people
you do not always see eye to eye,
but gave others a try as we all have something to bring to the table.
Dale Carnegie.
“When dealing with people, you are dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.”

3. They teach other people
This isn’t just about qualifying as a teacher or being a university professor,
but they always take the opportunity to inform others.
Whether they are the one explaining complex problems in the study group
or the ones ready training technical skills in the work place,
they have that need to pass it on as there is no better way to learn
and discover limits to your knowledge than through teaching.
You can do this by volunteering to teach, train informally or tutor someone.
Oprah Winfrey.
“For everyone of us that succeeds, it’s because there’s somebody there to show you the way out.”

4. They participate in group discussions
Is this a dumb question? They are not afraid to look dumb for one minute
than preserve and be dumb forever. They raise their hands and ask questions
where they need clarity, they tackle other members reasoning
just to broaden their own understanding of a specific topic.
Zen proverb.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser one to learn from others.

5. They play board games
Nothing gets your mind working out quite like a Scrabble game, 30 seconds, Sudoku,
Monopoly and millions of the board games that force you to think during relaxation.  
This is a fun way of learning and you can do this by inviting a couple of your friends
over for a games night in.

6. They watch documentaries on things that have shaped the world
The best thing about this one is, there is no need to read or have a pen and paper out in front of you. You just need to sit back and give your 100% concentration.
These documentaries are very informative and provide in depth logic of things.
They have scholars and experts in the fields who discuss certain topics.
This can be achieved by ditching Netflix and other celeb reality TV show once in a while
and switching onto the Discovery Channel, National geographic or the History Channel.
Elder Russell M Nelson.
  “Being educated is the difference between wishing you could do some good
and being able to do something good.”

7. They network
Attending business conferences and sermons is not just about the awesome “free food”
and getting to skip a day off work, but it’s about meeting different people.
The misconception out there is that networking is only to be done with people
who can bring you business or benefit your company.
This is not the case, you can network with people outside your industry
and even those who share nothing in common with you. This is a great way to open your circle
as you never know when the opportunity will arise to do really great things together.
This can be achieved by joining different groups on LinkedIn or other meet ups online.

8. They work on their self-development
None of this would matter if you had no interest to develop yourself.
Smart people care to get to the next level in their own personal lives; they eat better,
work out, work smart and educate themselves.
You can take it upon yourself to learn a new language, get a new hobby, learn a great skill
or even just to improve in your current field and be the best that there is.
Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul.

9. They never get comfortable
Most people tend to do what they do all day and every day
without the slightest thought to change themselves or work on themselves.
Some people reach the “I’ve made it” mental state when they’ve reached a certain goal
or make a specific amount of money.
Yet this is counterproductive as it gives no meaning to go on and aim higher and strive for better.
You have to constantly be learning and keep an open mind to possibilities you never knew existed. You have to be daring enough to try rocket science type stuff.
In this competitive world, there just is no room for complacency.
Steve Jobs.
“You can’t look at the competition and say you’re going to do it better.
You have to look at the competition and say you’re going to do it differently.”

10. They have the utmost belief in themselves and their abilities
So what does it take to be the smartest in the room? You have to believe that you are.
None of these things matter if you do not believe in yourself and what you are capable of achieving. Before anything, you must believe that you can. You shouldn’t shy away out of fear
or feeling embarrassed. What you have to say is worth it and someone will benefit from it.
You have been equipped with everything you need to fulfil all those dreams inside of you.
Don’t expect less from yourself and don’t expect it from others.
Give it your all and the world will place gold at your feet

Positive Thinking - The Key To Thinking Positive


Video Summary:
Truly telling good fortune from bad has nothing to do with how it makes us feel
in the immediate moment. Some things that seem bad turn out to be the challenge
that pushes us to our greatest success or strength. Using this long-range view of events in our life can markedly change our perception and thinking processes.

To accept that every challenge carries the potential for a positive outcome
is the cornerstone of positive thinking. This is a much more permanent approach
than tricking your mind into positive thinking for the moment.

Our negative assessments of what happens to us are the source of much unnecessary discomfort. Imagine if your life could be happier simply by changing your thinking about its day-to-day events! Use a review of the most challenging events in your history to prove to yourself
that "every challenge is an opportunity." Learn to "aikido" your challenges,
by using their momentum to catapult you to a new position in your life.

Then try the Seven Day Positivity challenge,
to learn how to interrupt negative thoughts and replace them with positive thinking.

10 Things You Don’t Need Anyone’s Approval For (Though You Think You Do) Oskar Nowik

Grandmother's nightcap aka water aven.

10 Things You Don’t Need Anyone’s Approval For (Though You Think You Do)
Oskar Nowik

You are probably a free person with access to the global Internet and similar luxuries.
However, there’s one thing that’s dangerous to your freedom.
It’s their seeking for other people’s approval. Plenty of folks base their own lives
on the opinions of others, afraid to lose validation and be criticized.
To me, it’s a deadly disease that paralyzes your ability to pursue your dreams.
Fortunately, it’s curable so anyone can reclaim their freedom.
If you are an unconfident person who often isn’t authentic in order to please other people
and you’d like to change it, you are in the right place. Over time, you’ll laugh at your past fears
and proudly follow your intuition in lieu of sticking to outdated dogmas.

1. You don’t need approval for changing your style.
Let’s begin with the appearance. Are you bored with your current look and you’d like to
transform your image? You’d like to make a change, but people are used to your current presence and a drastic modification will definitely draw attention. You know what?
People may talk and judge, but that’s the way it works. You can either accept it and stay authentic anyway or you can live as a slave of their opinions. What might be shocking today, 
will become a boring reality over time, and you won’t even notice how quickly 
everyone will get used to your new self.

2. You don’t need approval for changing your social circle.
You are the reflection of the five people you spend the most time with.
Without wishing to sound cliché, this sentence has to be mentioned since the most profound life lessons are actually found in adages. It might be the case that your current environment
prevents you from becoming who you’d like to be. Some people are great companions,
radiating with positive energy while others might spread nothing but negativity.
It’s your responsibility to adjust your surroundings to your goals. If there’s a negative person
in your life that you’d like to avoid, the last thing you should care about is that person’s approval
for your decision. It’s tough, but if you feel deep within that change is necessary,
go for it regardless of what others think.

3. You don’t need approval for changing your behavior.
Your family, friends, and colleagues may be used to a certain behavior you represent
so once you start acting differently, it obviously puts you in the center of attention.
Some might start to question that change, but this shouldn’t bother you. As long as you don’t hurt anyone, you have a full right to change the way you behave whenever you want.
If you are a shy or introverted person, however, you’d like to socialize more and become outgoing, the process of change will attract some attention. This might make you feel afraid of being judged, but same as for above examples, you don’t need anyone’s approval for such a transformation. Some people say, fake it until you make it. I would explicate it by saying that you fake it
until you believe it. While you do it, forget about how others perceive you.

4. You don’t need approval for changing your beliefs.
Many people were raised according to certain beliefs and dogmas reckoned to be the best
in their culture. The truth is, some folks born within that environment don’t accept these
as the ultimate truths and see the world completely different.
However, there’s a social pressure which makes it harder to abandon the tradition.
Conservative people brought up in that very culture will expect you to behave accordingly.
Every move in the opposite direction causes disapproval. They are deeply convinced
that’s the straight way to destroy your life, but the fact is, it’s you who’s living it.
When I declared to my family that my personal beliefs vary a lot from what they taught me,
at first, I faced huge disapproval. Honestly, I wasn’t surprised, but while stating it,
I wasn’t looking for their approval, but just sharing the information. Over time, the tension 
fades away and you are happy about being authentic and true to yourself.

5. You don’t need approval for your life priorities.
The typical life priorities vary from culture to culture, however, they have one thing in common. Namely, people look sceptical whenever you refuse to follow. A young person nowadays
is supposed to get a degree, get a good job, build a house, buy a fancy car and fully enjoy
their success. For some, this might be the best scenario imaginable. Others might consider
it a nightmare. Whatever applies to you, it’s your and only your business.
If your number one priority in life is to help people in need, but your parents dream
of you becoming a lawyer, then you’ll definitely meet with disapproval. Disappointing your loved ones hurts both you and them. However, a life filled out with regret may be even more harmful. 
Oppose to misconceptions, it’s following your heart and intuition that’s closest
to what you really want to achieve.

6. You don’t need approval for fulfilling your deepest desires.
You may want to do something so crazy that just thinking about it blows your mind.
Something you always wanted to do, a desire hidden deep within your soul.
But for some reason, you keep procrastinating and putting it off.
If “some reason” happens to be the criticism from your surroundings, it’s time to face the truth
and abandon the seek for validation. Most people prefer safety and security.
A person who hates sticking out from the crowd is not appropriate for a mentor
when it comes to going insane so their approval is the last thing you’ll ever need.

7. You don’t need approval for your relationship choices.
Relationship choices are fully private issues, yet plenty of people shamelessly judge others’ choices. What they base their judgments on, however, is just a surface. Only you and your loved one
know each element of your relationship, that most people may not even notice.
Some relationships draw a lot of attention in certain cultures and experience social pressure
and negativity. Narrow-minded people may try to destroy them, as they are deeply convinced
they are unacceptable. The truth is, their disapproval doesn’t play any role.
They may be loud, but their words are meaningless. Follow your heart and ignore the naysayers.

8. You don’t need approval for your passions.
Imagine a man pursuing to be a ballet dancer or a woman who falls in love with lifting weights.
Both are incredibly passionate about it and highly determined to get to the top.
There’s a beauty in how they spare no effort to overcome every obstacle and become better.
However, some people won’t notice that. The only thing they see is a controversy —
people doing something they don’t consider adequate for their gender.
These passionate individuals stick out, so the crowd notices and weak people laugh at them.
They may lack approval from the society but in reality, they don’t need it.
Following your passion leads to success, even if there are countless failures along the way. At some point, your success and determination make the defeatists so small you no longer recognize them.

9. You don’t need approval for your eating habits.
What you put in your body is what you become. Why would you let anyone determine that choice? Eating is such a basic task required to survive, yet it’s very controversial. Different diets
and eating patterns are always a hot topic of discussion, be it in the mass media or on the Internet. For example, becoming a vegetarian or vegan can be perceived as crazy.
Same thing applies when you base your diet mostly on meat and fats.
It’s because “healthy” and “normal” are subjective words.
First of all, eating healthy is not an absolute value, various people see it differently.
Secondly, you shouldn’t even care about eating “normally” because it varies from culture
to culture. Stick to your personal choice regardless of the opinion of others.
Ultimately, it’s your stomach that’s going to digest it.

10. You don’t need approval for following intuition.
There’s a voice hidden deep in your soul which gives you advice on how to act,
also known as intuition. This instinct may serve you life-changing tips, but it definitely
won’t give you any common advice. Following the typical path often conflicts with our hearts. 
Simply because the average life is not what we were meant for.
Then again, living a life driven by passion and inner desire isn’t easy.
Being aberrational is uncomfortable since your intuition is constantly questioned
by society’s norms. The fact is, once you accept that lack of approval for sticking to your instinct, you’ll feel more authentic, content and satisfied.
