Life hacks that Successful People Use

Life hacks that Successful People Often Use

The following psychological hacks will help you to be more successful at school, at work, in social situations and in life in general. These psychology hacks really work, and have been continuously practiced by successful people around the world. These clever little tricks will allow you to gain important advantages and more control over potential outcomes in various areas of your day-to-day life.
  • When you first meet people, try to notice their eye color while also smiling at them. It might be because you look for a second or two longer, but all I can tell you is that people really respond to it.
  • If you ask someone a question and they only partially answer just wait. If you stay silent and keep eye contact they will usually continue talking.
  • If you ask someone to do you a small favor, cognitive dissonance will make them believe that because they did that favor, they must like you.
  • Foot-in-the-door phenomenon. People are more likely to agree to do a task for you if you ask them to do something simpler first. (Gradual commitment makes people think you like them.)
  • Alternatively, you ask them to do an unreasonable task and they’ll say no. So then you should ask for a more reasonable task and they will be more likely to agree.
  • People will remember not what you said, but how you made them feel.
  • If you get yourself to be really happy and excited to see other people, they will react the same to you. It doesn’t always happen the first time, but it will definitely happen next time.
  • If you have a warm hand when you shake somebody’s hand, you immediately become a more desirable person to get along with.
  • The key to confidence is walking into a room and assume that everyone already likes you.
  • If you make the biggest smile you can, you will automatically feel happier.
  • People are extraordinarily aware of their sense of touch. If someone 'accidentally’ rests their knee on yours, they may not act like they realize it, but they definitely know that it's there.
  • Use S.M.A.R.T.N.E.S.S. to solve complex problems: You can achieve your full mental potential with this nine-step brain-boosting method: 1) Be Smart. 2) Use your Mind. 3) Pay Attention. 4) Really focus. 5) Try harder. 6) KNow what to do. 7) Exceed expectations. 8) Succeed. 9) Be Successful. Just remember the acronym S.M.A.R.T.N.E.S.S. and you can accomplish anything.
  • Refer to people you’ve just met by their name. People loving being referred to by their name and it will establish a sense of trust and friendship right away.
  • While riding a city bus, pull the string to assert your dominance over the driver: It’s very common to feel nervous in social situations on buses, and the driver might try to take advantage of you by not stopping when you want to get off the bus. By pulling the string, you can turn an enemy into a friend and make the bus driver stop whenever you want. This is just using innate human behavior to your advantage!
  • False attribution of arousal. When you take somebody out on a first date, take them somewhere exciting that will get their heart beating such as a roller coaster or horror film. This gets their adrenaline up. It makes them think they enjoy spending time with you rather than the activity.
  • Fake it till you make it; confidence is more important than knowledge.
  • Leftovers aren’t wasteful. (All too often, we eat what we don’t need (or even want) in the name of “not wasting it.” But this type of food psychology is counter-productive, especially when it comes to weight loss. Whether you throw it in the trash or down your throat, this unwanted food isn’t helping anyone. In fact, in the latter case, it’s only causing you to gain weight.)
  • If you pretend to be something for long enough, you will eventually become it.
  • People have a certain image of themselves and will fight tooth and nail to cling to it. Use this information wisely. You can make people dislike you by attacking their self-image.

Did I miss anything? Thanks for reading.

5 Best tips to Prepare for a Job Interview

I cannot stress the importance of interview preparation too much! You only get one chance to prove to a potential employer why you’re the right candidate for the job. It’s imperative you walk into each and every interview with a premeditated plan for selling yourself. 
Unfortunately, too many well-qualified candidates fail to spend enough time on interview preparation and subsequently lose out on good offers. 
Plan ahead, so you're prepared to interview on short notice. It will be much less stressful than trying to get ready just before the interview, especially if you need to line up appropriate attire and juggle your schedule to get to the job interview.
When it comes to showing your skills and your worth in an interview, preparation is the only key. You have worked for hours over your resume, sent it out, and managed to line up some interviews. 
You're hopeful, confident, and optimistic. And still, you might be having a panic attack.  Fear not! These tips will help you handle th…

25 things a man should know in his 20s

Currently, I am 23 and I’ll share something that I have been learning since my early twenties.

Here are 25 things a man should know in his 20s,
1. See you are growing up from a boy to a man, things are now changing in your body, you will feel more masculine but at the same time, you must train your brain and increase wisdom. I have friends who are just living their lives without doing self-improvement. Focus on self-improvement, read non-fiction books, stick to Quora instead of Facebook, Instagram or other social media and follow some great personalities who are following similar goals as yours.
2. Go Find your purpose in life and stick to it religiously. Many guys don’t know how to find their purpose in life. It’s hard to find your purpose in life. But you can pick a hobby that you love doing and figure out a way to monetize it.

3. Keep changing jobs. Learn as many technologies as you can, try as many fields as you can. Experiment until you get the right results. Don't be ashamed. Be…

15 ways to be Happy in Life

Sometimes I’m happy as hell and I’m depressed. But in the end, I’ve realized that living a good life is a lot simpler than people try to make it out to be.

And here are my 15 ways to be Happy in Life,

1. Sleep 9 Hours a Night
Pretty self-explanatory. You’ll become a better version of yourself, you'll look better, you'll be more productive, and be happier, less likely to suffer from obesity and chronic diseases. Remember, sleep is not a weakness but, a necessity. Get at least 7 hours a night and your life will change.
2. Be Happy Now!
Happiness is a choice (even though we think we have or not otherwise). So stop waiting to be happy and just decide to be instead. You can make the most out of a really terrible situation and learn to find experience and gratitude in the darkest times. Your life is much better than almost 99% of the human beings who lived on this planet before you.
So please be happy now.
3. Create Passive Income ASAP!
It’s about worth 10X working income than your 9-5 job.…
