It’s Wednesday! The week is almost at its end. Today, I want to remind everyone about the power of silence. Most of us have been taught say what’s own your mind, state your opinion, tell them how you really feel. However, sometimes silence is a more powerful tool of communication. Yet, often to be silent, flies in the face of reason. It does not make sense. We feel it makes us seem weak, and ineffective. Yet, sometimes our silence is louder and more powerful than any words we could ever speak.
“You are most powerful when you are most silent. People never expect silence. They expect words, motion, defense, offense, back and forth. They expect to leap into the fray. They are ready, fists up, words hanging leaping from their mouths. Silence? No.”
