Silence Still Seems Simple Sensible Sensitive Solution

One of the most important lessons that I have ever learned is that when you talk a lot, continue to interrupt, dominate a conversation or prevent anyone else from speaking that you come across as lacking comfort, certainty and confidence even though you may think that you are giving the opposite impression.

Have you ever noticed all of the noise that surrounds you? There are welcome noises like birds chirping, bells ringing, people laughing and unwelcome noises like music blaring, horns honking and machines drilling. If noise is making you feel tired, stressed and overwhelmed, silence still seems like a simple, sensible and sensitive solution.

Silence makes you strong by eliminating the noise and chatter of fear and doubt and replacing it with the calm, quiet and peaceful sound of courage and certainty. Silence makes you stable because it makes you stop, slow down, sit still, get your bearings and feel grounded in yourself and in your environment. Silence makes it simple for you to trust and respect your values and beliefs and to consistently demonstrate them in your words and actions. Silence makes you sensible because you press pause, step back and take the time, focus and energy that you need to ensure that you understand a person or situation before asking a question, offering an opinion, providing a response or making a decision. Silence makes you sensitive as you listen to what is being said and consider what is being written, and more importantly, to what is not being said or written as well as to the tone, context and subtext. Silence makes you successful as you appear generous and grateful; wise, worldly and wonderful; informed, interested and intuitive; empathetic and exceptional.     

Silence allows you to really enjoy your own company. So the next time that you have no idea what to say or do regarding a person or situation, spend 30 minutes in silence, pray, think or just sit and relax. Watch how you soon find a simple solution to deal with the most difficult person or situation. Silence is the simple sensible sensitive solution. Try it today!
