Welcome to my stories & wisdom learned through life’s miracles, challenges & magical moments. If you didn’t read #10, of things you may or may not know about Marilyn Rose, you can always read it later! It’s a magical story told through a song. But for today I will tell you this about myself and share this wisdom or food for thought!
I really want to become a master communicator. Why you may ask? There are many other things in life to aspire to become. It’s because I believe it really is the key to living a successful life. And I believe that because, just as successful real estate is all about location, location, location, successful living is all about relationships, relationships, relationships. And successful relationships are all about communication, communication, communication, and of course, connection, connection, connection.
And so it is lately I have been wondering why we seem to know so little about honest, open, respectful communication and so little about how to really connect with each other. And furthermore, how we think we are going to have honest, open, respectful relationships without communicating and connecting in a manner that supports that! And last but not least, how we are going to have successful lives without successful relationships and connections! Especially in this day & age when we are all about communicating & connecting in so many unique ways such as the Internet and social media.
And so it is, I am on a mission to do my part to learn more about and invest in this valuable asset called communication. There is still so much to learn about face to face communication, where we can at least pick up on some of the important non-verbal cues, like body language, facial expressions, tone etc.. And, yet now we are on to bigger and better ways of reaching and connecting with people all around the world. But again I wonder, how successful are we at communicating & connecting? For example an email can be read and interperted in so many different ways. Misinterpretations lead to misunderstandings, which lead to conflict, which leads to…well I think you get the picture.
If you want to live in a beautiful nurturing home overlooking the ocean you buy a beautiful home on the ocean, and if you want to keep it beautiful and nuruturing you maintain it. Perhaps we should do the same with our relationships if we really want to be connected and have beautiful, nurturing successful lives. And the best way to do that is through…you guessed it….honest, open communication. Or you could just invest in some ocean front property! LOL! I know what I intend to do!
And now you know one more thing about Marilyn Rose. Thanks for taking time to connect!!!
