Start by understanding where it begins... foundation of your communications.
Like a brick building, foundation of our communication was built one “Agreement” at a time during our personal domestication. We accepted these agreements from others and/or ones that we made with ourselves. Three examples of these agreements; a› I never do well on tests, b› I can’t speak to large groups of people, or c› I will be impeccable with my word, stating exactly what I mean or want.
Your -Agreements- set parameters or limits of our perspective, position from which you view, observe, experience and interact with your environment and life.
Your perspective in turn sets boundaries for our perceptions, what we know based on our perspective.
Think about this... because you will always remember it when you need it and you need it everyday.
Your AGREEMENTS set your PERSPECTIVE, your perspective limits your PERCEPTIONS and your perceptions limit your BELIEFS. Oops, I all most for got... ASSUMPTIONS.
Assumptions are windows to unknown, fuzzy at best, mostly outdated and basis for most of our beliefs.
Guess what drives your life and your business?...
What’s this have to do with MESSAGE and its MEANING?... How and what you communicate?...
Your agreements, perspective, perceptions and beliefs are different than person or group of people you are communicating with.
The key to achieving your objectives 25-50% faster is validating that message sent and its meaning is identical to message and meaning received.
If you have limiting-agreements instead of empowering agreements, how will you be able to clearly communicate your true message and its meaning?
Remember, not all of your agreements were originally yours, you accepted them from others as they were presented to you when you were growing up. I don't know about you, but I don’t want to give control of my life over to someone else.
Words are catalyst for action and actions deliver outcomes... How important is communication and its foundation to you?
Think about it... and we will continue this conversation another day...
