I know I spend a lot of time on communication and how the most important person to learn to communicate with is yourself. I know I share that you need to be brutally honest with yourself, and that does not mean that you should beat yourself up. It means when you are thinking about an invitation to participate, whether it is directly about you or one of your family or friends, you must talk to yourself like you do when you are sharing secrets about you to that special person that you can share anything with. When it comes to those deep secrets, it should really be you first, then share with others.
Each day you are going to want to take a look at the steps you took yesterday. How did you do in your communications with yourself? The way you know is by the interactions that you are having not only with those most intimate with you but how are you also interacting with acquaintances, and with people you are just meeting? How about people you are talking with on the phone or while walking into a gas station?
So how do you feel your communications skills are today as you begin to see changes in your world? Yet with those very special people in your life you are still feeling confused and not being heard by them. So how important is it to you to break down and understand why it is so important for you to be heard and understood by them?
As class was continuing last night one of the things that we were working more on was how to recognize when each of you begin to deflect from the very information that you have been thinking about. What do I mean by that? Why would anyone walk away from the information that can change their life? Yet, you are doing so each and every day. You are walking away from opportunities that could change the very way you breathe.
When you are looking at the things in your life that you want to make a change to, begin by asking yourself when you first walked away from your dreams. Each of you have a place where you had dreams of what you knew you wanted to experience while you were here. You must begin by asking yourself what, in your deepest part of your heart, did you know was going to be the one factor that would get in your way.
