It is no rocket science if I say that Communication really matters a lot. I am sure each one of us can blindly believe that being good at communicating things can lead you to the heights in professional as well as in your personal life. It is not about “Communicating”, it is about communicating in Good or even in the Great way. Let me illustrate it with a story of a blind man and a Great Communicator!:
" Once there was a blind man sitting on a road side with a sign board in his hand saying- ‘Blind Man, Please help’ and an empty dented bowl. Many passerby looked at the scene but none was donating a single penny. This was observed by a young chap sitting on a bench nearby. He then went to the blind man, took his sign board, flip it back, rewrote the statement and rest was just unimaginable. Each passerby was giving something or the few in bowl. When bowl suddenly went overflow Blind man asked the young chap about what was written on his sign board. Young chap replied, ‘It's a beautiful day. You can see it. I cannot’. "
After reading this story we can definitely depict that communicating in a good way is unimaginably advantageous. Just a subtle shift in communication skills can a have dramatic results like more sales more clients more appreciation and of course more happiness!
