Living a ‘good life’ means more than just happiness! In this video series I’ve selected from 101 keywords and discuss how each word can impact your potential to live a more happy, flourishing and prosperous personal and work life.

This is keyword #022 – Communication

If you want to become a masterful communicator, start with being clear on your intention for the person or people you are about to communicate with.

People get your truth. 

They get your truth through your thoughts, words, actions and results. When people you’re communicating with get that you have a genuine intention to help them in some way improve their current or future situation, they will be more engaged with what you’re communicating.  It’s not what you say, it’s why you say it.

Of course your ability to articulate your intention also impacts on your effectiveness, but it starts with your intention.  Just learning and applying new communication techniques to persuade or influence people to do what you want them to do, may work in the short term.  However in the long term, people get your truth.

To live a happy, flourishing and prosperous life you need to be building intentional trust relationships and this means communicating with an intention to improve the lives of the people you meet in your own life roles.

“The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.”
