The top 7 habits of intelligent people



If a list is rolled down of the most-written about subjects ever in literary history, the ‘How to be Smart’ would definitely occupy the top spot.

It is not that the writers are unnecessarily flooding readers with books on this subject; it is just that the subject finds way too many readers. And that is probably why you are reading this article. But for knowing how to be smart, one does not need to go through pages and pages of tips. And you really don’t need to do something unique. You do what you have to do; it is just the process that needs to be worked upon. What do smart people do? Read on:

1. They set their goals. Smart people don’t have a haphazard way of approaching life. They always set a benchmark and this is what everyone should follow. Only if we know what it is we want to achieve can we take the first step towards it. And the goal setting has to be done at an early age.

2. They have a step-by-step plan to achieve their goals. Setting your goals is not enough. Sometimes we set such ambitious goals for ourselves that we unconsciously start considering them impossible to achieve and lose our interest. And this happens because we want to achieve too much in too little time. This is where smart people think ahead. They realize that though setting highly ambitious goals is practical, but expecting groundbreaking results at the blink of an eye is not. Only when you break your goals into several mini-goals and work towards achieving each of those mini-goals, you can start climbing up the ladder, maybe not vertically but always upwards.

3. They control their impulses. Smart people don’t jump-skip the reasons before taking decision. The deliberateness in their actions is what makes them stand apart from the crowd. A proper thought goes behind every action and even if the decision proves to be wrong, they don’t start regretting and whining over it. ‘Learn from our mistakes’ is what we read and that is what they practice.

4. They know their limits. People burning out to achieve something that is way too far-fetched is a common sight. It is not that successful people restrict their abilities or skills, but they do know the boundaries they can push their abilities to.

5. They don't do anything half-halfheartedly. Starting something with huge enthusiasm and then losing steam mid-way is a trait many suffer. Smart people set their minds on something and endeavour to achieve that with absolute determination.

6. They're good listeners. This is something that doesn’t come easily to many. Listening to others might just be our dose of wisdom that we so crucially need. It gives us a different insight into our personalities and helps us to identify certain mistakes and make amends for the same.

7. They're not discouraged by failure. How many of us know how to deal with failure? Very few. We all have plans to cope with the most despairing of situations, but when those situations do arise; all those plans go out of the window. This is where smart people serve a lesson for us. They do fail, but they know how to create new beginnings.

Smart people are not smart because they are blessed. They practice certain values that empower them to remain ahead of the rest. And that is what the rest must follow.

Congressman proposes to girlfriend on House floor during budget deliberations

 
Photo from DIWA Party-list Representative Emmeline Aglipay
 
The 2014 national budget deliberations in the plenary of the lower House momentarily stopped Friday night to give way to a rare sight in Congress.
 With the apparent connivance of House Speaker Sonny Belmonte and House Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales II and his colleagues, Magdalo Rep. Ashley Acedillo rose on a matter of personal privilege and said he wants to propound one question.

Acedillo asked the majority leader to recognize Maria Pax Rosario Ocampo, who was seated at the VIP gallery.

Gonzales recognized Ocampo, and moved to suspend session to allow Ocampo to go to the front of the session.

As she approached, congressmen lined up the center aisle, much like when they welcome the President when he delivers his state of the Nation Address.

Acedillo met Ocampo in front with flowers and popped the question.

"Will you please do me the honor? Please be my wife. Please put it on record." 

Acedillo said Ocampo said yes.

Belmonte promptly congratulated the couple, who ascended the rostrum to greet him.

Belmonte said he looks forward to the wedding.

As the couple descended, Belmonte teased another bachelor lawmaker, Rep. Mark Villar, that he should be next. - ABS-CBN News
