WATCH YOUR TONE WITH ME…
How many times have you heard the saying…
It is not what you say it is how you say it!
This is so true for all relationships:
Spouse to Spouse
Coaches to Athletes
Teachers to Students
Caretakers to Caretakees
Customer Service…the list goes on
What happens that we forget the power of our words…both positive and negative?
How come we are so not aware of the impact we have on others?
Or maybe we are…and we’ve just become immune to the importance words play in our relationships.
An Athletic Coach can squash an athlete’s effort simply by delivering his/her message at a non-coachable time.
A caretaker of a toddler can inadvertently “nurture” low self-esteem, just by the tone of the words they choose.
How about spouse to spouse…How many times has your loved one “looked flattened” by your response? Could you have made an effort to remember “what I am about to say can make a lasting impression both positive and negative.”
Maybe try a new habit…Think Before You Speak…
