S:0935 Principle: Kind Words

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)

 

Do you sometimes feel almost overwhelmed by the negative voices shouting from everywhere? It seems everybody has an opinion and, by golly, they want you to hear it. Does their approach, which is an application of power, appear to be working?

Kind words is the subject of this S3MC. Kind words; a lot of strength in those two words. For you to achieve what you want, the strength of kind words can be far more effective than the power of shouting.

Some of the attributes of kind words are:

> a neutral emotional charge to your tone –

neither forceful nor timid

> brevity, an absence of story –

not “selling” them on your kind words

> unattachment to getting any response –

your kind words are your gift

> your feeling from delivering kind words –

you get ‘paid’ in the delivery.

Kind words are strong words. They affect.

 

Coaching Point: Do you know why you may hold back from speaking kind words?
