IF YOU WANT TO HAVE POSITIVE OUTCOMES…
In 2020, I MADE A NEW YEARS RESOLUTION…. SAY – YES!
Conversations can easily go awry… in a nanosecond.
Many words hold different values to different people and some can elicit unpleasant feelings.
Some of these feelings can induce more stress and trigger emotional feelings from unpleasant past events. Neuroscientists have documented this time and time again.
Ever been in that conversation when you are asking yourself after a display of negativity, edginess, irrational and unfounded behavior went to hell in a handbasket?
Sometimes, the core problems are word choices.
These word choices can undermine relationships which in turn cause confusion and indecision whether founded or not.
You end up with undesirable outcomes and no one wins.
Making smart words choices is key as well as asking questions to get clarity before jumping to a conclusion as well as breathing and counting to 10. The last one I know is an oldie but it is still a goody;-) !!!
