Just because a thought is dancing around in your head, doesn’t mean it needs to be unleashed on an unsuspect ing public. Silence really is golden, and brevity really is the soul of wit. People with verbal diarrhoea think fast, act faster, but may not consider the consequences of their actions. The need to share constantly indicates lack of a strong support system or childhood trauma.
When there are blasts or an earthquake, you feel left out if you can’t add to the buzz. Twitter has created a whole new brand of Causerati. But Good Samaritans tend to be a nuisance. The need to save the world shows that you are a giver, but only give when someone asks, you’re not a walking, talking charitable trust. You’re well-meaning and will probably make for a good friend or partner.
The self-promoter values his time. It’s about ambitious goals like networking, promoting your own product, blog or website. So much for building a community. Selling yourself is a finely-tuned art, so subtlety is not a bad quality to acquire. People who succeed in their goal in cyberspace usually have wit and charm for support.
If you’re feeling depressed, nostalgic or just PMSsing, we don’t want to know. If your doodhwala didn’t come this morning and your fridge broke down, we don’t care. If your boyfriend broke up with you, there is probably a good reason for it. People who have public emotional outbursts tend to be dreamers, emotionally fragile, trusting and romantics at heart. Get a positive outlook on life, find a balance between cynicism and blind trust.
Stalking celebrities and hoping that they retweet one of your messages, incessant brand mentions, boasting about your sexual escapades are all hints of being a wannabe. Self-esteem and maturity issues are at work here. A desperate vibe is singularly unattractive, and perhaps you may want to examine the image you want to project on a public platform.

Legend states that it can even change into a human being after 5 cycles.
For me it means that it is possible to renew one self in order to reinvent one self. We have to see the possibilities to rise from the ashes.
When the Phoenix rises from the ashes a new era starts.
My strong belief is that everybody can rise from their ashes and start all over again. We just have to see the possibilities. And the possibilities are there. They are already in all of us.
Each and everyone of us starts their life as a strong human being. We have an indefinite amount of inner strength. But in the course of our lives, life-events occur that break down, bit by bit, this inner strength.
Through the Phoenix example we can see, feel and know that we can be strong again, to see possibilities instead of boundaries.

A key to successfully sharing and selling a product, service or idea, is to ask questions and then listen quietly and carefully to the answers. Many of us try too hard to “convince” people to buy instead of discovering what our future customer or client really wants, needs and desires from us.
To succeed in sales remember these three listening and relationship building skills:
A sales person with an agenda tends to push too hard and often doesn’t listen well. Leave your agenda at home. Sincerely focus on your customer and how your product can best serve their hopes, dreams and goals. Zig Ziglar said it best, “You can have everything in life that you want if you just give enough other people what they want.”Keeping the three elements of SEA (Sincerity, Ethics, Asking) in mind, you can easily and effortlessly find new customers and clients who will want to do business with you now and in the future. Selling your service, product or idea is about doing the right thing for everyone involved – it is about building win-win relationships.
