The Power of Silence

The power of silence can cannot be overstated. For some of us it’s harder than for others. The effect can be a devastating tool for good.

Consider serious conversation. Consider talking with your spouse, your kid, your employee, your boss. Make your case and then be quiet. See where it leads.

Want a second, similarly powerful tool? It’s called “patience”, and can be applied with equal effect. In fact, in goes hand in glove with silence, often times. After all, the more patient you are with outcomes, the easier it is to sit with situations and allow them to play out.

Practice both of these skills. You’ll be surprised by the results, and the peace they can afford you when honed properly.
