Here’s a weekend thread to improve your communication skills with just about anyone…

It’s a game changer for how people will see your “emotional intelligence” & connect.

No matter what your problems might be, be open, drop your preconceived notions, and give this a shot. 1/
Main Takeaway: Problems in communication usually come from people expecting others to see and interpret the world the same way they do.

So, how will others see you as “emotionally intelligent” and connect with you? If you can meet them where they’re at. 2/
This doesn’t come naturally to everyone...

You have to find points of connection, not make them feel stupid if a new topic, and anticipate their emotional responses.

People will truly engage with others if they feel they are being respected, heard, and understood. 3/
What goes wrong? When people approach others the way “we think they should be,” and not approaching them for "who they are"…

That approach will not go well - it makes you very unlikeable, and come off like a jerk (even when you might not be). 4/
No matter who you are, the good news is that this is a skill you can improve.

Whether you’re in business, connecting with strangers, or simply trying to connect better with someone you know.

Big Tip --> Meet people where they're at...not where you want them to be. 5/fin

Let’s have an honest conversation about the bad habits you just can’t break. If you’ve been trying for *years* to break a bad habit, but have been unsuccessful, here’s a place you can start.

Sit back, I’ll ask you to go deep. 1/
Here’s the thing...If you are working for *years* to break a habit unsuccessfully, it’s because that “bad habit” is serving a purpose in your life.

...yes, it’s actually doing something you are getting value from at some level. 2/
Finding out what that purpose & function is of that habit, is key to resolving it.

All "bad" entrenched habits are like this - even procrastination, micromanaging, workaholism, etc. 3/

A lot is said about the traits that make people successful...but what isn’t talked as much about, is what can sink you.

Here’s a thread on the specific things that hold people back - Use the weekend to reflect, make some changes if needed, and pull yourself ahead. 1/
Excuse-Making. If you make it or don’t make it, it’s ultimately on you.

Yes, many have circumstances that make it easier or harder...but people who come up with endless reasons why things don’t work or can’t work - instead of finding solutions - won’t make it. 2/
Not Executing…Regularly. You can have the best ideas in the world, but if you don’t actually do something about them, you won’t go anywhere.

Be a doer. It takes executing on things *regularly* to get ahead, because if you’re not, be assured other people are. 3/

Burnout is a response to overwhelming stress. It’s emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion - it’s no joke, and can sideline you for far too long.

Here’s a weekend thread to help you catch it early 1/
Getting cynical, pessimistic, or finding yourself more irritable? The first signs are usually mood related.

If you’re a boss, look for it. It’s not always that your employees “have poor morale” Sometimes...they’re overwhelmed. 2/
Other signs are often around anxiety & productivity.

You’re starting to tank & you feel it. You’re not meeting deadlines you used to. You feel stressed out, anxious & have a hard time concentrating. Your body is looking for breaks, you’re tired, and trying to push through. 3/
