But sharing with an audience -- even if only an audience of one -- from deep within and sharing what I hold dear to my heart is something I don't do because I listened to a taped series on art of speaking well.
ALLOWING MY LIFE TO MOLD MY WORDS
I share that way because I'm striving to live well. I speak that way because I allow what I'm learning and value in life to mold my words.
That's great speaking -- speaking from heart!!
Reflecting on Doc's message, I say to myself: "God, give me grace to speak like that in my life. Let my words come from a life well lived and a heart well trained in art of loving You and others."
Speaking from heart -- a good heart -- helps us in at least three important ways:
1. It helps us "connect" with people 2. It gives us credibility as we share 3. It protects us from motives which take advantage of people
In my opinion we all need to learn from "Docs" of world. They are valuable people.
Thanks, Doc. I'm still trying to listen and learn. Your message got through today. My challenge will be making sure it "hits home" tomorrow and next day.
