I use my words to encourage happiness and peace. I communicate honestly and directly. I ask myself if what I am saying is true and helpful. I follow through on my promises. I talk through difficult issues instead of trying to dodge them.
I speak kindly to others and myself. I empathize when someone is struggling. I express my gratitude and offer sincere compliments. I fill my thoughts with positive and encouraging messages.
I promote unity and healing. I deal with conflicts respectfully. I search for common ground and mutually satisfying solutions.
I monitor my tone of voice. I avoid yelling. I remind myself to smile.
I strive to make a meaningful contribution to casual conversations and business meetings. I appreciate opportunities to engage in deep discussion.
I listen closely to others. I limit distractions and avoid making judgements. I ask questions and summarize information to be sure I understand.
I choose an appropriate time and place for each interaction. I share criticism privately. I find someplace quiet and comfortable to talk about private issues.
I work on my communication skills. I read books and take courses online. I welcome feedback from others and use it to keep growing.
Today, I choose my words carefully. I speak and listen from my heart.
1. How can I help to reduce gossip?
2. How do my communication skills affect my relationships?
3. Why are face-to-face communications so important?
