In this episode we will cover a few bullet points regarding Communication.
• Listening with empathy versus hearing • Seek to understand before being understood • Clear communication- stop Assuming, ask if you’re not sure, don’t think the other party should know what you’re thinking. • Authentic with how you feel. • Body language- Texting when someone’s talking, arms crossed, no eye contact, etc
When surrounded by people do you:
keep to yourself and avoid people?
Try to find someone you know, to make you feel a bit comfortable?
Give short and small answers when people speak to you?
Or just stay on the phone the whole time?
If so, then you’re probably pretty shy! And that’s ok.
Take some time to hear some tips on what can help you overcome your shyness!
Let’s talk about surpassing Barriers we experience when connecting with our fellow man! Barriers like: • Ethnicity • Spirituality & Religion • Political • Money • Culture • Friends of friends • Status • Attitudes
If you ever felt uncomfortable with these things regarding connecting with others around you, give me your ear and let’s surpass those barriers!
How to do this? Self reflection!
Why to do this? To put it simply you can only connect to others as deeply as you connect to yourself.
Areas to self reflect - Recognize what you and only you need - What do you need healing from - What are you aware of that needs changing - What am I holding on to that needs letting go of? - What do I need to add on to my life? - Do I take time to honor and love myself? - What have I been ignoring and need to face? - What’s the one thing that ignites my being?
You are the secret factor. You attract the people that are just like you and repel those who aren’t. Here’s how:
• Your attitude
• Your income
• Your mindset
• Your values
• Your struggles
Adjust these parts of you to the better version of yourself that you know lies deep inside and you’ll attract and connect with people on that same energy.
