Conscious Communicator Power Word #18 – CONNECT (100 words or less)

Your next Power Word is one to help you change expectations…CONNECT!

Often, when attempting to influence people the language we use is “I’ll reach out to,” “I’ll call,” “I’ll get in touch with.”

This language is not strong enough. It does not focus the mind on our desired outcome.

What you really want is to CONNECT with them.

If you focus your mind on CONNECTing with them, you will continue the pursuit until you do. If you just “reach out,” or “get in touch,” you can fool yourself into believing you’ve done our job.
