Share your Story
Communication is the key to connecting with the world around you. It is an avenue that aids you in effectively telling your story. Your words will frame your perspective and your ability to listen will be your greatest platform for learning. Developing an authentic communication skillset propels your vision forward
Use your Power
Your voice can be an instrument that builds up or destructs. The choice is yours. Recognizing the power that your voice has to deepen your connections with the outside world will be vital to your path of ownership. Authentic men choose to edify, not destroy, for in building up those around them they find their visions flourishing.
A major component of your communication with the world around your is your posture – your attitude toward something. On a basic level, the position from which you communicate dictates how effectively you will be able to communicate in any situation. To take things even further, you can develop postures that will provide communication advantages as you continue to progress toward your goals.
Authenticity does not exist without honesty. Speak truthfully in every circumstance, for it is far easier to navigate what follows than to stumble along the path of dishonesty. The truth isn’t always accepted externally but operating from a foundation of truth aids in keeping your focus on the vision.
To Receive, You Must Give
To earn respect, you must begin with providing it to the other in the first place. Providing respect to others is not based on conditions. Respect must be given to all you connect with. Unconditional respect is developed through the broadening of your perspective. Operating from respect in your communication will take on many different forms, but it must remain consistent in your approach to connecting with people.
I Hear You
If you want others to hear your story, you must give space for them to share theirs. In order to listen effectively, you must stay present in the situation and give of your attention. Do not dwell on how you will respond in the conversation or drift off into thought – stay present. When you truly take the time to listen to another, it propels a deeper connection with others. Listening provides the opportunity for learning and learning will continue to grow your perspective.
