10 Power Words to Get What You Want

I got this from Stephen Covey’s The 8th Habit audiobook which I was listening to this morning. It’s a great book by a great man. Every time I re-listen to it, I unearth more gems of wisdom.

You don’t have to use many words to persuade people to give you what you want. “People often see through superficial, ‘kind’ techniques and know when they are being manipulated,” Covey said. He suggested with the sincere use of the following 4 expressions (total of only 10 words) as a consistent habit, you can practically have your way in many circumstances with people. So, here are the 10 Power Words:

One word – “Please.”

Two words –  “Thank you.”

Three words – “I love you.”

Four words – “How may I help?”


Which of these 4 expressions have you use yesterday or today?


Process vs Result

Here’s a thought and question to ponder, to feed your mind. Recently I saw a post on Facebook asking public opinions on which is more important for performance: Process or Result?

Naturally, a question like this will draw attention to vote for one or the other. When I paused and pondered on the question for a while, I thought that both process and result are very much inseparable. The question shouldn’t be which is more important, it should be which is more important to focus on? I also thought that result is the outcome of doing the right processes well. I joined the discussion and gave my two cents by commenting:

Results will take care of themselves when the right processes are done rightly. Here’s a Jim Rohn quote, “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day; while failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.”

After giving it more thought I’m convinced that focusing on processes is THE KEY to peak performance. In this blog post, I’ll elaborate more by using an example from my peak performance experience.

Increasing Your Self-Esteem by Liking Yourself

Self-esteem really matters. The origin of the word esteem comes from the Latin word aestimare, which literally means ‘to put value on’, or ‘to estimate’. Therefore, self-esteem means the value we put on ourselves.

One of the main key factors that determine a healthy level of self-esteem is a strong sense of self. Your capacity of what you can do and achieve in life can only be limited by your self-image, how you see yourself, and how you value yourself. It’s been said that many lottery winners lose almost all of their windfall money quickly, and many successful multi-millionaire businessmen whose business are wiped out overnight often bounce back and recover quickly. Although their fortune changed drastically, their self-value has not. The level of wealth is ‘equalized’ by the value that we put on ourselves. Wealth is only one of the many indicators, there are also social, health, career etc.

So, how can you enhance your sense of self?
