Giving Out Much-Needed Motivational Support

Dr Muzzafar Zaman

Going to a rehab sounds to be the best option for people who have been into a serious addiction and it was already hard to stop them from doing it. A harder challenge however is being imposed in the first few weeks when a person comes back home after spending time in the rehab. There would be many issues that need to be faced. Coupled with the support given by parties that surround the person, things can go smoothly.

Getting back where things were left off

It is very important not to make the person who just came from the rehab feel that a lot of things have changed. According to a study conducted by a British psychologist Dr. Muzzafar Zaman, the process of resettling in the usual environment of a person from a rehab would proceed quicker if he does not notice overwhelming, new stimuli in the environment. Get the person back to his normal activities. Bring him to places he used to go. Take him to events or places that used to interest him. He needs to feel like he never left at all.

Pooling support from all people

Dr. Muzzafar Zaman pointed out that one’s perception of another person who had time in a rehab should not change just because of this instance. Everyone should have more conversations with the person so as not to make him feel like a gap was made because of his absence. If there are people at home, at school or at the community who were hostile with the person before, it is probably best if he could find comfort and safety with people he knows personally. It would not be wrong however if he meets new people who would be good him.

Providing new interests to the person

If addiction with injurious things was the cause that the person had to be checked into rehab in the first place, it would be very effective to give him positive inclinations. Make him explore other things by letting him embark on a new sport, look into the arts, try joining into clubs and discover other interests that he has not showed before. It is the new hobbies that according to Dr. Muzzafar Zaman would make the person forget that about the negative things that his former addiction caused. No one should feel ashamed of their own skin just because they were drawn to something that they could still get out of.

Motivation Needed For A Job Interview

Dr Muzzafar Zaman

No matter how good you think you are when it comes to public speaking and interpersonal skills, we all still get the jitters every time we face an interview. The tension keeps getting higher especially if the interview is for a job position that you have long set your goals to. You fear that you may mess up so sometimes your nerves get the best of you. Dr Muzzafar Zaman, a British PhD professor with decades of human resource background, has gathered some of the best tips to nail every job interview that would come your way.

Preparation is everything

As Dr Muzzafar Zaman would put it, there is no such thing as losing in an interview when you have prepared everything on your part. He pointed out that an interviewee needs to go through all the details of the documents sent to the human resource department. There should not be any false information because it could be a major issue when the interviewer asks you and you have completely no idea about the question on hand. Think of possible questions beforehand based on the details of your submissions and answer them on your own.

Looking good with the best version of yourself

A long and good sleep will bring you to mood, readying you for the interview as added by Dr Muzzafar Zaman. When you do not feel stressed and consumed with anxiety, it is when you feel most confident so you can answer the questions the best way possible. Make sure that your clothes are properly pressed. Make sure that you wear smart-looking business attire based on the level or nature of the formality that the company sets. Ensure that the colour combination does not appear off to anyone. An effective tool to look good is to have an always-positive attitude, bringing vibrant aura and smiles everywhere.

Professionalism and honesty during the interview

Sometimes, your answers to the interviewers’ questions have less bearing than the manner of how you deliver them. Make sure that you maintain eye contact with them to show your sincerity. Always answer the questions with all honesty so people would not have second thoughts on the way you respond to them. Show your interests about the company by making extra effort in researching details about it. Employers would feel impressed over someone who is already acting like they are part of the company even if they are yet being interviewed.

Motivation for Graduate Studies

Dr Muzzafar Zaman

Digging more into your area of specialisation can be very promising once you finally get a hold of how bright your future looks like if you pursue further studies. Most people who want to be experts in their fields look for their dream school and search for the specific master’s degree they need enrol to. The application process however is very tough because various outstanding bachelor degree holders will compete for limited spots of a graduate studies program. One way to stand out from all other applicants is to write a stellar Statement of Purpose for your application – Dr Muzzafar Zaman.

What to include in the Statement of Purpose (SOP)

A professor in a London-based university, Dr Muzzafar Zaman, mentioned some tips on how to come up with an excellent Statement of Purpose. Here are some of the tips that he shared:

  1. Perfectly proofread the article before submitting it. Needless to say, grammar, spelling, punctuation and coherence of paragraphs are supposed to be of top quality for a SOP to stand out. Dr Muzzafar Zaman added that when there are hundreds or thousands of applications for graduate studies, those SOPs that are poorly written immediately find their way to the garbage can.

 

  1. Have a very informative tone in writing the SOP. The Statement of Purpose should be supplemental to the other documents within the application package that you send to the screening committee. Therefore, merely repeating facts that can be found on your CV, resume or other credentials would not make the SOP stand out. Include details in your past related to your interest in the field that you want the screening committee to know.

 

  1. Be creative but don’t get too fancy. Most SOPs are written creatively and do not always have to follow strict or formal tone. You can write as if it were a creative essay but make sure that you do not get too informal with the choice of words. As pointed out by Dr Muzzafar Zaman, your personality will be reflected by the approach of how the statement would be written.

 

  1. Mention someone or a group already in the graduate studies in the SOP. By mentioning a specific professor who teaches within the graduate studies program or a group of students who are already enrolled there, it will send message to the screening committee that you know what you are going to deal with and that you want to be a part of them.

 

England were unlucky!

This week we’re discussing the world cup so far and mainly focusing on England.

Brazil got decimated by Germany earlier this week, and then Argentina unconvincingly knocked out The Netherlands on penalties.

England were handed a tough group, Italy are always up for the big matches, Uraguay are deadly clinical and Costa Rica will play park the bus.

They started very well against Italy and were very unlucky not to get a point out the game, Italy were strong and clinic ( the only match they actually showed promise) and managed to just sneak a win.

With a solid performance out the way most people expected a point at least from Uruguay, England started poorly and were facing a high pressing Uruguay. A wonder ball setup Suarez for an easy finish and then England kicked into gear and equalized late only to then  concede straight away due to terrible defending on Gerrard’s part (not the first time this year he’s cost his team).

England were out by the time Italy managed not to win and it was all over only 2 games into the World Cup. In total England were the most unluckiest team in terms of Clinical finishing from the opposition they conceded 6 shots and 4 goals. And there performances actually topped other teams that managed to make it far they just didn’t have one of the most important aspects of Football on their side – Luck.

World Cup latest!

Dr Muzzafar Zaman

So far the world cup has been highly entertaining, although I want to discuss the officiating.

So far there’s been numerous refereeing mistakes, from penalty’s not given to biters not been punished.

Fifa decided to not chose the best man for the job but instead choose a referee from each nation, which had lead to some terrible poor decision making, when you have officials whom have never referred a game that had more than 5,000 watching to then ruling a match that has millions of people watching.
