In an extremely noisy world, what do you do to stand out? Suppose you are in a tow truck business and you want to sell your services to customers, what do you tell them to listen to you? When we speak, there are a number of habits we need to shun. There are what we call deadly sins of speaking we must avoid if we have to move crowd and get people interested in what we speak. Let’s explore these habits’
Gossip involves speaking ill of someone who is not present. Gossiping is not a nice habit by any measure. The good news is that we can know exactly when someone is gossiping. When we allow them to gossip about others, in the next few minutes, they will be gossiping about us too.
It is not right to judge others. There are those people who really like to judge about everything and it becomes very difficult to make a conversation with such people. Look at it from a different perspective, you might be doing all it takes to make a genuine conversation with someone, but they are busy judging you. It can be a very bad habit to be judgmental.
Negativity is something that most people fall into. Because of negativity, sometimes it becomes very hard to listen to anyone, because there is a clear lack of morale and inspiration from what others are speaking. Once you start being negative about everything, it can have a very bad effect on your overall performance and perceptions of life.
There are those people who will always complain about anything while they speak. These are the types of people who will never appreciate anything useful coming out of others. For any situation they are presented with, they see the negative side only and try to voice out their frustrations about the whole experience. It can be very difficult to deal with a complaining type.
The beauty of a good conversation lies in taking turns and active listening. There are those people who will never give you an opportunity to speak, because they are always interrupting and trying to shoot you down. To have a meaningful and good conversation with anyone, you must give them sufficient time to express themselves without jumping into their speech to interrupt them. Additionally, try active listening by using body language to be in sync with what they speak.
