The Levels of The Communication Connection

I had requests to explain what the levels of the
communication connection are. And as one person
put it, Just what is Intrapersonal Communications?
So, by request, here is the basics of the levels.

Levels of the Communication Connection

There are three basic levels of communication.
Each level of communication is essential as it affects
the others. And each level needs to be developed to
enable us to effectively and efficiently get our
message across.

The different levels of communication:
intra, inter & mass.

Intrapersonal = communication with self

Interpersonal = communication with one or small group

Mass = communication with large groups of people

We begin by communicating well with ourselves (intra).
Only then can we begin to have effective communication
with another person or a small group (inter).
Once we master this, then can we move on to effectively
communicate to the (mass).

Ask yourself how you felt you were unable to get your
message across. At what level did you think or feel that
the problem might be related to?
Step one is to start noticing where you are having the
challenges. Think about the benefits of improving your
skills and where you can go by mastering your communication.

P.S.If you like what you're reading in this
ezine, you'll love the book,
'Overcoming Barriers to Communication'
It helps you know why, when after you have said something,
the other person has totally misunderstood you.

Why I Communicate Gratitude

Many times I have either read or heard about the power of gratitude. It states that you cannot get more in your life until you are grateful for what you already have.

That at times can be a hard pill to swallow. There are times when you look around and think, how can I be grateful when it seems like so many things in my life are in turmoil? How can I appreciate my relationships, family, health, finances or job when I am not happy with them?

Often when we look back on things that we have been through, we realize that if we hadn't gone through what seemed like something terrible, then we wouldn't have had some other wonderful thing happen in our lives.

Often it can be a very important lesson that has guided us through many other events in our lives. Or it can alter our path to one of great joy and happiness. Too often we decide quickly that something was good or bad with out waiting to see.

It can help to remember that there are many people in the world, who have never talked on a phone, rode in a car, had a roof over their head or fresh water to drink. Many people don't even live long enough to know what its like to be an adult.

I have stated many times that what you focus on and communicate to your self and others is what you will attract into your own life. And, when we are focusing on what we don't like or what we are not grateful for, we are attracting more of of the same.

You can start to realize the many things to be grateful for in your life by doing a short journal on five things that you're grateful for each day. It can be as simple as; I am grateful that I was able to get up this morning. Or, I am grateful that I have a job. You can expand it from there.

Many people have stated that once they started the process, they realized just how much they had to be grateful for. And it was at this point that their lives started changing.

P.S. If you like what you're reading in this ezine,
you'll love the book,
"Overcoming Barriers to Communication"
Answer the questions; Why doesn’t anyone understand me?
Why do I have such a hard time getting my message across?.

Expanding Your Communication Reach

You have an important message!
And you want it to reach as many targeted people as possible.

How to do it effectively and cost efficiently is something we
are all trying to expand on.

There is a new development on the net that I am experimenting with.
I discovered this tool from people I respect and they have reported
it has assisted them with increased targeted traffic.

Anyone successful on the Internet tells you the gold is in
your list. But what if you can't get that list? What if
you're struggling to get just 100 subscribers a week?

Here's a solution, that enables anyone to add thousands of 100%
opt-in subscribers to their list, with very little effort.

Technical eMarketer Steve Shaw, the one behind this tool,
says that ListInferno has been designed to "give everyone
and anyone the ability to create their own big valuable
opt-in list ... this system has been designed to add
thousands of opt-in leads to your list for the bare minimum
of effort - and it's all 100%".

So, does it live up to the hype?

When I first took a look at this tool, I thought, "Well,
there are some systems similar to this one on the net...
What makes this one so special?"

Then, when I signed up and followed the process in the
Setup Wizard, the answer was easy to see. There are some
subtle differences in this tool that make it really stand
out. These differences may well make this the most viral
list building tool yet seen online.

It's important to realize, that rather than bringing you
huge amounts of traffic, this tool brings you need to make
money online- quality targeted 100% opt-in leads.

This tool may well be the easiest and fastest way to build
your list yet developed. In fact, by jumping on board with
this as soon as possible, you could gain a strong advantage
over others who wait and see.

And if they are already signed up, that's even more reason
not to waste any more time. After all, the one with the
biggest targeted list usually makes the most money.

Definitely ride the wave on this:

Listen, anything that can give you quality subscribers
for virtually zero effort is worth a try.

We just hope it stays You should get it
now while it still is.

Do You Hear That?

I read a report in the Toronto Star stated that 70% of workplace errors happen because of communication breakdown and that many of them directly relate to a lack of listening skills.

The challenge is most people filter out sounds, noises and people talking as much as they filter out most of the things their eyes see.

On one level, this is important. You would go crazy if you processed everything that you heard and you would never be able to have a conversation with a person in a crowded room. However, we get in this habit so much of the time that we literately filter out things that are important to us.

I have heard about many team projects that had disastrous results where the people involved "heard" something different and had a different view of the outcome.

It shows how, what we heard is our interpretation of what we think they said, after it has gone through our brain filtering system. I have seen many people hold grudges days, over what they believed was said, and not what the person actually said.

The benefits that come from improving your listening skills can mean the difference between moving ahead in your career, knowledge and skills or falling behind and wondering why.

Some of the benefits are:
Resolves Conflict - You are able to understand the other person better which leads to resolutions.
Increases performance – When everyone is working on the same goal, you can perform like a well-oiled machine and everyone wins in the end.
Increases your knowledge - Chances are you will learn important information and ideas that will help you.

There are many ways to improve your listening.
Some of them are:

Make sure you are not talking
Remove distractions i.e. TV, radio, other people
Check your emotions
Watch for non-verbal clues

Sadly though, many people only listen to reply and not to understand. These people often don’t realize the many benefits they are leaving behind.

"It is the province of knowledge to speak and it is the privilege
of wisdom to listen."
