TRAIN YOURSELF TO BE SILENT

Silence gets you out of the way and creates a space others will fill in with themselves. For this to happen, it might require us to train ourselves to be silent – to consciously make ourselves wait far beyond the point that feels comfortable. – Dr Alex Lickerman, author of The Undefeated Mind

When we ask someone how they are, sometimes we are just waiting for our turn to speak. Thus we interrupt with a question and then often end up talking about ourselves.

We might think that we are helping the person by giving them answers or ideas, but in fact we are cutting off their thoughts and ideas.

When someone is allowed to speak, it uncovers truths and emotions that would otherwise be left unsaid.

This week, ask someone “How They Are?” and give them a whole minute without saying a word.
