Life Principles - Communication

Learn how to better communicate

I hope you have found me openly sharing about my Life Principles valuable for your own life journey. This week I discuss the one principle that wraps all the others up, and that is communication.

Escrow.com

Each of the three principles of truth, trust and learning are largely predicated upon interacting with other people. In this video I share with you some practical communication skills that I’ve found have been really beneficial with my own relationships….I also share about some of my own shortcomings as well.

It’s so easy to fall into the trap of thinking you’ve clearly communicated and yet the other person has received an entirely different message. This can be so for personal relationships or in the office where you’re trying to move a project forward. Communication is the key to so many things in life.

I hope you’re enjoying this series on my Life Principles and that you’re getting a lot out of it.

Life Principles – Principle Interactions

What happens when principles interact?

Over the last few weeks, I’ve shared with you the principles that I try and live my life. I’ve found the “Life Principles” of Truth, Trust and Learning to be incredibly powerful but even more so the interactions between them.

In this video I explore what it means when each of the principles interact with each other. For example, what happens when truth and trust are expressed towards others? How about truth and learning or trust and learning?

Rather than be blown by the winds of circumstance, what happens to your relationships and your own character when you begin to live your life through a firm set of principles. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live a more fulfilled life, then I would encourage you to watch this next installment in my “Life Principles” series.

Life Principles - Learning

Developing a learning mindset.

Learning is my third life principle and is the key that you can use when you feel like you have failed. By developing a learning mindset and lifestyle you open yourself up to the incredible opportunity of understanding who you really are.

Escrow.com

When I was still in high school, I would bring home at test result of 97% and right after encouraging me my mother would ask me, “What happened to the 3%?” You may think this was harsh but what it highlighted to me was that I knew the 97% and my future learning was going to come from the 3%.

Over the decades this mindset has been invaluable in my own personal development. In this video I openly share some of my own experiences in wrestling with learning. I hope they help you in coming to grips with your own life journey.

Have a great weekend!
Michael

Life Principles – Trust

Trust is the basis of every relationship.

Trust is the second Life Principle that forms the bedrock of my own life. All relationships are built upon a basis of the truth (from the previous week’s video) and trust. In fact, you could also say that society is built upon an unspoken contract of trust.

Escrow.com

When I look at the world today one of the things that dismays me the most is the assault upon the bonds of trust between us. COVID-19 has brought about an air of suspicion where people are fighting for the “I” rather than the “we”. You can witness this behavior at supermarkets as shelves are emptied in a frenzied zeal to protect “me”.

What makes a person trustworthy and how can we become more trustworthy ourselves? In this video I outline the characteristics of trustworthy people and what I personally look for in someone that is trustworthy.

I hope you are enjoying this Life Principle series. Have a great weekend.
Michael
