Experiencing Communication

When two or more people are involved in a conversation be it for personal or business purpose, communication is a crucial part of the experience.

In my opinion there is no effective way or tool on how to communicate if we cannot express ourselves by seeing what the others are seeing. When we become aware and understand others around us only then will we be able to communicate effectively. Two people can look at the same thing and see two different things. We cannot control what they see but we can try to understand what is it that they see and why. Not only will this procedure be more effective in understanding others but it will also enable us in producing results based communication.

Another reason why communication is a major part in our daily lives is to set up ground rules that we live by with respect to ourselves and others around us. When we communicate our desires and wants to the world we teach people how to treat us. It is up to us to send the message on how we want to be treated and therefore how we treat the ones around us. When we set up rules and also set up consequences and rewards for each rule that is when we learn our value and teach others about it as well. This part of communication by which we live it is a crucial part as we learn about ourselves and others along the way. It may take a life time to learn this part of communication, yet starting is the key because if we never have a starting point we will never be able to communicate effectively be it professionally or on a personal level.

What is your form of communication? Hey, sharing is caring so please feel free to 'communicate' on here.

Communication is important. I communicate best in the arena of writing, but I'm learning to be a bit more vocal..... Though I still tend to remain tight lipped when in a group setting.
Not communicating equals not sharing, and not sharing equals not growing, understanding and learning..... and then you're just stuck.

I do though tend top shut down the doors of communication to certain people when I get nothing in return. I find that happens quite often..... to me me anyway.

Thank You Mark. I love the way you express yourself through writing.

I agree with you that not sharing will keep us stuck where we are and therefore counter productive. Not the best choice in my opinion.

It is not always easy to speak up in front of a croud. I sometimes challenge myself to do it...and when I have no other choice I do it. It helps to have someone there for support.

Thanks Mark, you're awesome!
