How to communicate and put your point across and make your voice heard.

My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this:
Everyone should be quick to listen,
Slow to speak and slow to become angry, James 1:19

The fool speaks, the wise man listens. ~ African proverb

How to do the RIGHT TALK and make your talk work for you. 

Communication is the master key that lubricates human relationships. Without effective communication prospective relationship grinds to a halt. Everybody can talk but everybody can’t communicate.

Communication normalizes relationship while ineffective lack of communication creates unnecessary tensions and cast shadow of uncertainties on prospective relationships.

If you can’t communicate you can’t be effective leader.
Talking is not communication.

Everybody can talk but we all need to learn the basic of effective communication. For instance, a bad communicator is not a good listener while a good communicator is a good listener. He never just speak, he listen first to give wiser answer. Listening is the key to learning to effective communicator. “The fool speaks, the wise man listens.” ~ African proverb

Great communicator speak to pass on a wiser point and learn from the other person while a bad communicator just wants to be heard for the sake of been heard, just to prove a point.

In a proper communication, there is really nothing to proof but to learn from each other wise words, that need patience, humility and the ability to accept one’s wrong, make correction if need be without taking matter out of contest just to romances one’s ego.

Ineffective communications create cobweb of doubts and uncertainties in relationships. The lesser we communicate the more cobweb gather up and the more relationships grinds to a halt. While effective communications brighten up everyone’s day and wipe the cobweb away. A man who uses force is afraid of reasoning.” ~African proverb

Most of us can talk but we do not know how to communicate. Talking and communication are two different words. Talking is talking; it is the uttering of words while communication is an act of putting words into senses or the act of making sense with words.  

·        Communication birth dialogue, negotiation while talking only just says words and aggravates situations.

·        Communication brings understanding.

·        Communication takes the trashes out and replaces it with virtue. I love you doesn’t mean you truly love until the love is tested.

·        I want you to know you can trust me. Yea, I hear you. Let wait and see if you will proof yourself trust worthy.

You know; I will never cheat on you, yea, I hear you dear. Let wait and see if you are tempted you will pass the test.

Oh pass the Chicken to me for safe keeping, uh huh! Let wait and see if you won’t fry the chicks for dinner when hunger take over your belly, eat the capital of the business and run away from challenges and waste precious resources.

Talk is cheap until men’s heart is tested. When you face up hill you’ll separate men from boys.

The most vital tool many people take for granted in relationship is communicate. Talking and communication are too different word. What you say is not what you do and what you do is not what you say. Communication is a vital tool that lubricates relationship.

Living is not about what we do for our self but for other people

We live in time history that folks resent truth and clamour for falsehood. News media feed the public with falsehood. Knowledge does not equal truth. Today generation think they are too smart to listen to heed wise counsel because knowledge is easily accessible everywhere but they lack common sense which is wisdom, that come through experience. It is when knowledge is tested that human mental faculty are refined. The thing is, many people are knowledgeable but they do not have the experience to put what they know to practical use. When you climb up the hill, you’ll separate the men from the boys and women from the girls.

You can be knowledgeable and still be ignorant because you lack the application of knowledge.  Truth leads us to experience and experience they say is the best teacher.

Knowledge without practical experience in the end birth ignorant. Is not what you know that matters but it’s what you do with what you know that put bread and butter on the table.  You may feel informed yet wrongly inform that is ignorant. Knowledge without wisdom is like water in the sand.” ~ African proverb

So to be effective communicator having a good listening makes a whole lot of different.

Wherefore, my beloved brethren,
Let every man be swift to hear,
Slow to speak, slow to wrath: James 1: 19
