How to Talk to Anyone

What is that magic quality makes some people instantly loved and respected? Everyone wants to be their friend (or, if single, their lover!) In business, they rise swiftly to the top of the corporate ladder. What is their "Midas touch?" What it boils down to is the ability to create a comfortable and elegant rapport with anyone you meet.

Many people's limiting beliefs are rooted in the language they use internally (yes, we all do talk to ourselves).  This internal language is usually not helpful and can be changed through a process called "reframing".  Reframing is the art/science of creating a change with a statement related to langauge being used.

Reframing Limiting Beliefs for change
