7 Foolproof Ways To Gain Self Confidence On Your Own: I know many people that suffer with low self-confidence, including myself. And when a person feels that way, it can really mess up your life. When it comes to relationships, you constantly need reassuring that this guy/girl likes you because you're always wondering why they're with you. On a night out with friends, you might feel slightly down in the dumps when it comes to dolling up because compared to your friends, you're a solid 6 while they're sliding in to double figures. This is me to a T and you know what? It's time to stop. Here's some top tips I've told myself recently that I'm going to live by that I think would do you the world of good too if you feel the same way.

How To Turn Your Pessimism Into Happiness With 10 Easy Steps: Most people would probably agree that being nice to others is not only extremely important, but should be one of our top priorities in life. However, I wonder how many people actually make a conscious and continuous effort to encourage and spread joy to others. I know I often completely forget to! I imagine that many of the reasons we avoid the task is because we feel it will take too much time out of our already busy lives, or use some of the energy that we are preserving for the million and one things that we need to do that day. In this post, I am going to provide a few ideas of ways you can be nice to people and spread some happiness, without taking up much of your precious time and energy, in the hope that if we all make the decision to carry out some of these, we can help inject a little bit of joy into people’s lives, which can make more of a difference than you would ever think! 1. Smile It is amazing how much difference such a tiny gesture can make to someone’s day. It is such an easy task, yet really could cheer someone up or be exactly what someone was needing at that time. 2. Show Interest If you’re in a situation where you’re going to be spending more than a few seconds with someone (such as paying at a till or standing in a queue with someone) why not ask them how their day is going? It is such a small thing, but often just the knowledge that someone cares can be enough to completely change the mindset or mood of another person. 3. Offer Help This is similar to the last point, but if you see someone struggling, in whatever way, it really will not take much of your time to assist them a little bit. If it turns out the task they are struggling with requires more time or ability than you can offer, do what you can and I’m sure they will be grateful. 4. Speaking/Acting With Respect This is another super easy one, which I’m sure a lot of us do without thinking about it anyway, but often all it takes is to simply show respect to someone. Just small things like saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, or saying ‘excuse me’ etc. can really make a difference. It’s often considered basic manners, but I think that when someone treats you with complete respect it can be really encouraging. 5. Interactions On Social Media A really easy way to spread joy is to interact with people on social media platforms. It can be as easy as liking/retweeting someone’s tweet or commenting on someone’s instagram and blog. Again, it’s often just their knowledge that someone is thinking of them and appreciating what they are doing that can really make someone’s day. 6. Compliments It makes me feel a little guilty when I think about how little I actually make the effort to compliment someone, especially face-to-face. It’s a bit ridiculous the amount of times a day I’ll think about how much I like someone’s outfit, or love their makeup, or think that they seem really nice, but just never actually tell what I’m thinking. I know that when someone has complimented me on something it has always completely improved my mood and made me feel so much better about myself, so I’m sure it would have the same effect on others too! 7. Encouragement If you see someone attempting to do something, or struggling with something, it really does not take much time to just say a couple of words of encouragement, and this could really lift their spirits and give them the motivation and boost that they need. 8. Keep Negative Opinions To Yourself I think that when we see something we don’t like or don’t agree with, it can be so easy to start talking about your opinions, whether it be to the person you disagree with, or to others behind the persons’ back. However, these kinds of comments can really hurt someone’s feeling and knock their confidence, so I think one thing it can be really good to do is to just leave it. Unless what they are doing is hurting others or is being offensive, it’s often much nicer to just not say anything. I did a post on my blog about Gossiping (https://judanna.co.uk/gossiping-wheres-the-line) if you would like to read more about the topic! 9. Listen If someone has an issue or something they are worrying about, sometimes the nicest thing you can do is just be there for them and listen. It will not take much of your time and effort but will really benefit them. 10. Support I think a really simple way to show people your appreciation for them, or the work they do, is to support whatever they are doing. Whether this be encouraging them, interacting with their work, or financially supporting them (if you are in a situation which allows you to do so), supporting others is such a good way of spreading some happiness. These are a few ideas I have come up with, but if you have any more feel free to comment them down below so other people can see them. You will probably have noticed some key themes throughout these points! Basically, show people you respect, support and care for them, and it can make the world a happier place. Don’t forget that when people receive kindness, often their immediate reaction will be to spread the joy to someone else, so although your actions may seem small and slightly insignificant, they could make a much bigger impact than you could ever think. I really hope this post will have encouraged you to spread a little bit of joy into someone’s life whenever you can. We live in a world where there is so much hurt and suffering, but sometimes small acts of kindness can make a huge difference.

Tesla Might Start Its Own Music Streaming Service: Tesla may produce electric cars and solar panels, though you still may not come up with an idea of a potential rivalry with Spotify in the future. However, change is upon us (maybe)! Tesla started working on its own online music broadcasting/streaming services according to the news on Recode, also claiming that the work Tesla aims to develop will be similar to Pandora, exclusive for cars. Reports suggest that Tesla may provide this service for free to those who own Tesla cars. Even though there are no major details yet, it is a known phenomenon that Tesla puts heavy emphasis on in-car comfort and states that listening to music while driving is a freedom. Other than the reports, supporting such claims, people seem to remember that Tesla CEO Elon Musk talked about music services at the beginning of June. Claiming it is hard to find high quality music playlists and matching algorithms, Musk said he wanted to combine the high level audio systems in Tesla cars and a successful online music service. At first, it may sound a bit hilarious for Tesla to compete against two giants of the online music industry: Spotify and Apple Music! Because it is hard to actually understand the reason why one would like to deal with music records and servers, instead of reshaping the transportation and automotive industry. On the other hand, it is just today’s problem. In the near future, automobiles are expected to change in major levels and as a result, Tesla has a prediction about in-car comfort services will become an independent industry itself. Online music streaming services providing video and other media materials, not only music, is considered a promising sign for this industry to grow and develop a lot further the future. Having an on-going competition with Apple, Tesla’s intention might be not to leave anything untouched against its rivals. Tesla has a deal with Spotify regarding the automobiles they sell out of the US. For now, it may seem like a threatening move for Tesla to launch its own music services instead of making and renewing deals all around the globe with Spotify, Apple Music or Tidal, everything can change in the near future. Till then, we will see whether or not these claims will be approved by Tesla.

Spotify Has Surpassed 140 Million Monthly Active Users: World’s most popular online music broadcasting platform Spotify, has just announced that they have reached 140 million monthly subscribers. Continuously growing company had reached 50 million paid subscribers by the end of last year’s March. Having 100 million monthly active users at these times last year, Spotify has grown about 40% since then. Quickly improving Spotify has by far a mountain more above than its biggest rival, Apple Music. According to the data shared in the beginning of this June, Apple Music has 27 million monthly paid users. Briefly, having almost as twice customers as Apple Music, Spotify keeps dominating the digital music industry. Containing over 30 million songs in its archives, Spotify’s premium version is 13,99 TRY per month in Turkey. Even though Spotify has managed to increase their users in number, it is not as good as in financial matters. Reports by Reuters have shown that Spotify lost 349 million EUR in 2016. This statistic was around 240 million last year. Critiques say this is a result of their falsely calculated business strategies and due to investments not paying themselves off.
