How do you love someone when its hard to understand what they do?
Have your words ever been taken the wrong way? Do you speak before you think?
We are human and with that, many times we speak before we think. Our feelings rule us and we say things that sting the other person.
Do your feelings cause you to blurt out profanity’s because you don’t understand?
Dealing with our feelings and the feelings of others doesn’t have to be hard. We can think before we speak. We can manage our emotions. We can forgive swiftly.
Marvin J Ashton’s words in his book Begin With Yes, state this: ” If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance and care.”
My podcast shares a simple way that is repeatable and successful so that we can do this and create more happiness in our life.
Mr. Ashton says “I think we would treat each other…” He states this as a “thought”, not a feeling. He is using logic while writing this statement. If he would have said “I feel”, it would have indicated that he “felt” this. He eliminated “feeling” words so that we would see this as factual and not opinion.
Do you speak before you think when you don’t understand?
We can do that same thing when we share things with our team, our family, and our co workers. He is managing his emotions by not stating his opinion emotionally. Use your thinking words when you have to speak with authority. Use your emotions when you are in a place of humility, when you want to forgive someone.
This podcast shares a simple strategy for overcoming life’s difficulties. It requires your imagination and vision, with a desire to overcome, forgive and be happy.
We can understand others better today as we implement the simple technique revealed in this podcast.
