Conscious Communicator Power Word #8 – OPEN (100 words or less)

Today’s Power Word is one of possibility…OPEN!

Many people share with me frustration with people who are closed-minded. Many wish those people had more OPEN minds. Do you have an OPEN mind? Imagine how much more powerful it is to communicate with people who are OPEN minded?

To be OPEN minded we have to master our internal dialogue.

Additionally, using OPEN when making a request of someone, is a powerful influencing communication strategy. Most people want to be thought of as being OPEN. Asking someone, “would you be OPEN to XXXXXX?” gives you a likelihood your request will be fulfilled.

    I love this word, Open. My father used the phrase Open-Minded throughout my youth so this word hits a homerun with me! Being open to new ideas, attitudes, suggestions, etc. can really make a big impact in your life and how others view you.
