All is won or lost in just a few seconds. This can be a terrifying thought. Lasting impressions are made duringrepparttar first few moments after you meet a person. Thus, your first meeting may be your only opportunity to generate a favorable outcome.

This isrepparttar 102098 point where a failure to prepare setsrepparttar 102099 stage for disaster. I define this terrifying event as "The Dialog Dilemma". That's when your mind freezes duringrepparttar 102100 struggle for justrepparttar 102101 right thing to say. When your fear of sayingrepparttar 102102 wrong thing causes a brain lock.

Is there a cure for "The Dialog Dilemma"? Absolutely. Do you rememberrepparttar 102103 expression "Preparation precedes opportunity"?. Or, this one: "Failing to prepare is preparing for failure".

Are Your Dreams Trapped Inside Your Head?

Written by Oscar Bruce

Sometimes a dream needs a little help. Even in our social and business relations,repparttar race is not torepparttar 102097 swift, but torepparttar 102098 verbal -repparttar 102099 spellbinding orator -repparttar 102100 silver-tongued seducer.

As you are reading these words, you are taking part in one ofrepparttar 102101 wonders ofrepparttar 102102 natural world. For you and I belong to a species with a remarkable ability. That ability is language -- Man's most important cultural invention. With nothing but words, we can reliably cause new ideas to arise in each other's minds. Hypnosis has proven that mere words can deeply influence behavior and perception.

Language is a bit likerepparttar 102103 artist whose palette has only two or three splotches of color from which to choose. So it is with a vocabulary that has limited words for paintingrepparttar 102104 stories of one's past or future. They are colorless and uninteresting. They lack excitement or persuasion.

Take, for example,repparttar 102105 less fortunate hapless worker. He probably has lofty dreams. But those dreams are trapped inside his head because No dream or ambition can be told without being couched in words. Limited words mean limited expression. Limited language skills mean limited opportunity. These limitations block efforts to raise him aboverepparttar 102106 worker class. His struggle to upgrade his circumstances collapses atrepparttar 102107 point his language skills fail to support his aspirations.
