In my opinion, communication is a fundamental and necessary skill to fulfillment, happiness and success in life, love and work.
I do enjoy that uncomfortable body language that arises when clients realize we are working on their own inner dialogue. With no possible escape route, fire alarm to pull or excuse that can get them out of this, the thinly veiled squirming, sweating and disapproving faces pour out in a free fall. Ahh, the sweet sweet pleasure of power.
In all seriousness though, I enjoy it because the discomfort is a sign that we are making some break throughs. Progress and true change come only when you are pushed beyond your comfort zone.
Your ability to speak concisely, with grace and with clear intention is the biggest gift you can give yourself. It impacts your career, your home life and community connections each and every day of your life.
Sadly, as a society, we are so uncomfortable with words these days. Who doesn’t rely on technology to communicate or avoid communication in an uncomfortable moment? Or even worse, rather than speaking to our life partners about the issues near and dear to our hearts, many go to a counsellor just to have a safe space to talk.
I am not too proud to share that my own visits to the marriage counsellor led to a major shift in my own personal communication style. Hey, when we know better we do better.
I invite you to write down your circle of words that convey the energy you want to manifest in your life. Your inner world creates your outer world, what do you want yours to be?
Think of the circle of words exercise like a vision board for your brain. Type them up right now in the comment box or get out your journal. Whatever feels good for you.
Just do it.
Live life in FULL bloom.
