Freedom comes with a fee of responsibility.
On the simple term, Freedom of speech and expression is the right to impart and receive information which includes freedom to hold opinions.
Speech is far more a question of approval. The impact of words have far greater intensity in reality. When you say something to someone or address a gathering in an event, you go prepared and make sure you cordially tick away the points you put across to make an impact, you are nothing but vibrating your energy. Languages are nonetheless vibrations in words. Sound in words.
I totally stand by the quote, ” Silence is golden”. What we fail to understand from this is that “speech is diamond”, it is far more necessary for it to compliment with silence. Truly, when you coordinate or exchange any words with your co-worker you’re aware and careful while speaking. In the corporate world, there are a people spectating your behavior, speech and temperance, calibrating your personality, work and efficiency. So, we try to be our best at all times.
Being human (authentic) is very important than selling ourselves as a bot that can withstand anything. The degree of temperance varies from individual to individual.
People often deal with everything to their best of ability while they are themselves at a certain degree of freedom, the same goes with your speech. Restrained speech is less truthful than overreach outs. But, moderation is always in check and by far a healthy way of communicating.
Educating oneself about the art of communication eases a person to connect with everyone around them. Thus, falling under the category of etiquette training. There is an art of expressing ourselves and our thoughts to the world.
Volume the quote of Nelson Mandela, ” If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart”.
That is exactly how the sales panel in a company work and build their client relationship. The benefactor or the nail is to have a clean clear cut conversation or the information to be conveyed in the most efficient way. A simple no BS approach is a very pleasant way to communicate. Also, on similar grounds, when you communicate, you will have the tendency to fear people’s perception and disagreements. You could go pleasing one, two, three out of four in a group, seven in ten members. The point is agreements and disagreements are never in your guard to control. Why fear then?
Stick to the hard truth than honing the skills to sell those lies.
“Great freedom comes with great responsibility”, I repeat.
Skip Richard, one of the consultants from Berkeley, explains the experience he went through when he was taken on a tour in the prison by a local prison guide. As he describes the cell room that great Nelson Mandela cell, he probably had goosebumps, I bet. It was for good 7 long years a person had to keep up the strong faith and not succumb to the solitary of the four walls.
Just that Nelson Mandela out stood the art of expression and this reminds me of the poem.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
-William Ernest Henley
