It's a fact. Our body language and vocal tones account for 93% of our rapport
and trust-building in the communication process.
What does that say about social media communication? We can't see the body
language of our SoMe associates, We rarely hear their voices. That leaves
only our words - representing 7% of overall communication factors.
That doesn't sound like the foundation for powerful, clear communications,
now does it?
Our Future and SoMe Separation
By its nature, Social Media creates degrees of separation. That creates risk
in that we just plain can't see the reality behind that darned avatar. Let's
face it, we all know a fake gooroo, manipulative conman or just plain poser
in our networks. More than one most likely. Such realities seem to be part
and parcel of the medium called social.
I want to be clear. I'm not pointing a finger at every SoMe communicat... (more)
One of the distractions our Unconscious Mind (UM) uses is the blame game.
When something threatens the status quo of our UM, it will often use
distraction to avoid that threat. Especially when we're running old
comfortable programs. Why would our UM want to give up those comfie old
programs in the face of a threatening change? We're not wired like that.
We are wired to look for the problem, threat or other negative in our
experience. It's only natural that our UM leverages that wiring when it feels
the need to distract.
We've all played the Blame Game. After all, it's easier to s... (more)
Every two days we create a quantity of information equal to the volume of
information created between the dawn of civilization all the way to 2003.
But even the largest data warehouse can't match the biggest data in our
world. That data is happening right there inside you. It's called your
In a single day the average person is exposed to the same amount of
information as a person in the 15th century was exposed to in a lifetime. In
the first day of life, a baby receives a volume of information equivalent to
70 times the information housed in the Library o... (more)
The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend. ~ Robertson
On Wednesday we chatted about how our unconscious mind uses meta programs to
process data from our senses, and why those meta programs tend to keep us
stuck in the same perceptions and patterns.
The good news is there are options to consciously shift our perspectives. The
fastest way is to rest control away from our unconscious mind. By forcing our
unconscious to activate our conscious logic, we sidestep the meta programs
and step into fresh perspectives. Here are three tips to do just that for
your b... (more)
The center that I cannot find is known to my unconscious mind. ~ Auden
What if I told you that your unconscious mind actually controls your
Not exactly what you had in mind, now is it?
In my studies of neuroscience and neuro-practices, I've learned truths about
our unconscious minds that literally blew me away. Many of the beliefs I'd
been taught for decades became little more than urban myth.
I want to share some of these powerful truths with you. The more we
understand about our minds, the easier it becomes to step into our full
potential. Our minds are designed... (more)
