Do People Really Listen when you Open your Mouth?

What is your intention behind words?

Communication uses sounds, words and body-language. However, impact is generated out of our intention behind the words, not words alone.

Intentions are to communication what a conductor is to an orchestra.

For example, an empty gesture is a gesture that has not found its intention. Imagine somebody yelling “fire” in a movie theatre without intention, it would be a long time before anybody reacted.

Avoid Self-Consciousness

The reason an absence of strong intentions deflates the balloon of healthy exchanges is because an absence of intentions results in immediate self-consciousness.

Miles Davis said music is the space between the notes, then the music of your personal success is the space between your everyday behaviours, moods & attitudes.
