There are two contexts of communication you need to be concerned with as you go through your day.
Yet, most of us are only concerned with one.
We think we’re only consciously aware of one.
But, I know we’re not.
We are consciously aware of both.
It seems, though, we just ignore one of them.
And, it’s more than just a shame.
It’s negatively impacting our lives, and the results we can achieve for ourselves, our family and our business.
The one context we focus on is our external communication.
You know, the stuff that comes out of your mouth intended (or sometimes not intended, oops!) for others.
The other context we don’t pay enough attention to is our internal communication.
You know, the little man or little woman inside of you that you talk to ALL THE TIME!
Most of what is called our self-talk is not supporting us in the best way, you know?
Most of our self-talk, or what I call our “internal dialogue” is just endless loop conversations that never move us forward.
It’s what I call your L.I.D. or your “Limiting Internal Dialogue.”
This concept and title recently came to me while coaching my clients in the Communication Power for Leaders virtual training, in which we spent more than 3-hours discussing how to lift their L.I.D.
Think now about your L.I.D.
How is your L.I.D. limiting your personal and professional results.
Your L.I.D. is keeping a lid on the results you could be achieving.
I’ll write more about this soon, for now, this is just a quick note to get you thinking about how your L.I.D. may be limiting your personal and professional results.
Leave your comments below as I’d love to hear about your biggest challenges regarding your L.I.D. and offer you some strategies for removing it.
’til next time, Communicate With Power!
