Three Magical Tips Communicating successfully isn’t easy for everyone. Don’t you remember when you tried talking about something important, and never got the point across? If only you had done it right, or used the right words. If only you could do it over again! But how many times do we get a second chance? We bring you Three Magical Tips to communicate successfully… Responsible Communication Speak honestly and from the heart. Of course you don’t need to be blatantly honest, if you know what you say will hurt someone. Exert caution. Be responsible and take up ownership for your part. Do not say things, which you think the other person wants to hear. Know your limits and do not go beyond. Be responsible for only what you say. Do not try to take responsibility for what others say. The “ I ” Mantra Use more of “I” rather than “you” in your statements. “You” sounds more accusative and may be interpreted wrongly. Always respond from a neutral place. Do not react in anger or when emotionally charged. During charged situations it is better to take time off and communicate the same later. Open Your Heart Remember, the minute you close your heart to others, you are more likely to suffer than them. Exercise patience and compassion Accept different perspectives Work towards harmony and a solution, rather than getting side-tracked with differences. Practice, they say, makes perfect. There is no time like the present, to get started. Keep these Three Magical Tips in mind and start communicating successfully, today!
