Vulnerability Can Lead to Powerful Connections
What happens when we feel too vulnerable and too self-conscious? We start looking for greener pastures elsewhere. Why? It’s a response that’s easier than changing.
Whether business or personal, if you have relationships that you wish were better (and who doesn’t?), choose to do this:
Ask the other person, “If there were one thing that I could change that would make our relationship better, what would it be?” Then, sit back quietly, yes – quietly, and listen. Really listen, to what they say. Next, repeat back to them what you thought you heard them say for clarity. Tell them “Thank You,” that you will think about what they’ve said OR that you will begin to do it immediately.
Once we find out what our relationships really want or need from us, it’s generally a simple thing to begin to make a change for the better. Either way, by coming with a “beginners mind,” making ourselves more vulnerable, can lead to a newer and more powerful connection within a relationship.
