The world would be a better place if more people were better communicators.
We can either complain that they’re not or work to improve ourselves and our own communication. I choose the latter!
Here’s the problem: other people aren’t hearing you. You don’t feel heard, you’re not getting what you want in life, and you think it’s other people’s fault.
You want something. You think you’ve told someone. They don’t understand (or worse: they think you never told them), and you’re left disappointed.
How do we fix this?
The first thing to acknowledge is that communication is both the sending and receipt of a message.
If you’re broadcasting and nobody’s picking up the signal, you’re not communicating.
We talk about how you can take ownership and responsibility for communication to ensure you’re heard.
You’ll be able to resolve a lot of relationship problems and avoid arguments if you learn how to communicate.
