Harmony in Conversation — The Key to Making Powerful Bonds

Making true friendships is easier than you think.

The Importance of Balance

Consider a great conversation with a close friend. You smile, laugh and relate to one another all the way through. Notice there is no battle between whose thoughts and views are correct. Any contrasting opinions are taken with appreciation, eliminating any negativity in the air. There are only positive vibes — nobody tries to beat the other person, letting their ego surpass the other’s. The more there is balance, the greater the connections will be between two people.

Creating balance

Treat every conversation like it is the first time you have talked to them. Forget about the world around you. Let any presumptions melt away from your mind.

The art of life is to live in the present moment.

Become an active listener and pay attention to your words as you speak to them. In doing so, you will become greatly aware and involved in the conversation.
