How important is a conversation? What does that even mean?
Conversation takes on many aspects in building relationships, setting goals, fulfilling desires, raising children, enjoying family, discussing health issues and just life in general.
Yes, we are talking conversation…not yelling and debating. You want these conversations to lead you to a positive outcome…raising and discussing questions that will help you understand where you are and where you really want to be or where the other person in the conversation is or wants to be.
Remember these conversations should always be honest. If you are not honest, you’ll get nowhere. Since the first conversation is with yourself, no one else will know except you and that is why your honesty is so important. I do not mean beating up on yourself when mistakes or poor judgement has occurred. How about more of an assessment and then looking for positive solutions or changes? When you can do this, conversations with others become so much easier. You can say what you believe in a kind but honest way and ask to engage with another person in a reasonable discussion.
One great example is to begin a conversation with yourself concerning your body and how you really feel and what goals you want to achieve. Are you unhappy with your weight, your energy or your stamina? Do you think it is partly a psychological block or something physical? Are you willing to do something about it? This is one of the most difficult self conversations and perhaps some outside help may be useful, whether to brainstorm or just hear other opinions. The key is personal honestly and a decision whether you are ready to commit, perhaps to just one thing. Then go for it!
Over the years I have had many of these conversations with myself. The biggest one was when I was 41 and working. I was overweight, felt sluggish, had no energy and was falling asleep at work. Finally I had a conversation with myself about how I felt and just had to do something. That is when I embarked on my quest to be healthier which led me to Shaklee products and studying nutrition and wellness. This started me on the road to better health and a successful business helping others. That was 33 years ago and because of that personal conversation, I am living a healthier, more energetic life and feel “fit and fabulous”!
What conversations do you want to have? If you want some outside help, connect with me for a private conversation. You can also sign up for my free health assessment on my website here. And let me know what you think about having a self conversation as the preparation for more expanded conversations with others.
Have a great day!!
