Defining Communication – The Key to Success for Kids and Adults
Posted: April 24, 2018
Communication is “the link between the world and me.” Communication is how we relate to ourselves and everything around us. It is so important that the success of a society depends on how well it communicates. The word communication comes from the word “common”, which means “equal.” This means that in order to communicate with each other, we must find common ground. To ensure this, our communication must be seen, heard and felt.
Communication can be verbal or nonverbal. Visual communication has to do with the way we use body language to deliver our message. Verbal communication refers to the way we sound: the tone of our voice, what words we make sound important, and how our voice changes when we speak. Physical communication involves appropriately touching someone while we speak with them.
We can also communicate with ourselves. It takes a great amount of practice to communicate with ourselves, teaching ourselves to grow into the successful people we want to be.

3rd & 4th Level: Belief in Society & the Universe
Society – Human beings’ beliefs are, in a lot of cases, a result of their surroundings. Society certainly affects our beliefs. There are a number of limiting beliefs in our surroundings, and there are also many empowering ones. We must distinguish between them, rejecting the limiting ones and embrace those which make us better. It’s very important that we believe in our society and contribute to changing its negative values and strengthening its positive ones.
Universe – It is important to understand that the universe is not you, but rather you are an important part of the universe. We must also understand that there are many different rules that make the universe work. When we understand these rules, we will understand the natural results of our attitudes, thoughts and actions.

2nd Level: Belief in Others
These are the beliefs we learn from our parents, teachers, mentors and friends. They shape our ethical and moral values, which become the guidelines we live by.
We are all influenced by many people in our lives. We learn many different beliefs from teachers, mentors and even friends. Because we have a natural urge to “fin in”, our tendency is to make our beliefs match those of our social circle.

1st Level: Belief in Ourselves
Before we believe in anything else, we must believe in ourselves. Belief in ourselves is having the confidence that we can do anything!
Every human being is born with unlimited potential. In order to achieve success in life, we must choose to believe in ourselves. We are capable of learning all of the skills needed to do whatever we want in life.

5. Determination – Determination is to never surrender. When we do not give up, even in the most challenging circumstances, we eventually succeed. Determination allows us to control our circumstances, rather than have them control us. People who never quit have a strong reason to believe in themselves. By showing determination they confirm their self-assurance and therefore become stronger. Remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit.
6. Courage – The lack of courage can also be called fear. Fear is one of the most powerful limiting forces in life. It is all too often that people let go of their dreams, even without making an attempt to reach them, because of the fear of failure. By having courage can we confront and ultimately destroy the fear that separates us from our goals. To be successful in life we must dare to dream; we must dare to trust; and we must dare to believe.
7. Humility – Being humble allows us to believe in others. When we are proud and arrogant we believe that we have all the answers. It becomes very hard for us to believe in others and learn from them. Humility gives us the chance to trust others and learn from them. With humility we are open to believing in other, learning from them and gaining greater knowledge for ourselves.
