Rev Runs Amazing Words Of Advice:

“Monotony is a RAPID AGER. The mind grows stale very quickly under a monotonous life, a humdrum existence. Lack of growth, of interest, of change is fatal!!.. People who live the same kind of life year in and year out age rapidly. (Remember) The shriveling up process, the wrinkles, all appear in the mind first.Keep changing.Stay fresh,Stay excited….” – Rev Run

Never let other people determine your life’s outcome! We will all mess up from time to time.. And If you’re gonna mess up, it might as well be your decision NOT someone else’s. It’s cool to listen to folks sometimes. (But remember!!) Never be so open minded that your brains fall out!” –Rev Run

If you truly want to be successful in life, there is one law you must apply: SACRIFICE. You must sacrifice selfishness if you want friends. You must give up poor eating if you want health. You must give up loose living if you want a mate. Life is all about giving. In some instances, that means giving up something. – Rev Run

“Always have great mentors around you… The mentor is the one who comes to shorten the distance… The mentor can be the difference between success and failure… (Remember!) The difference between a fool and a wise man is, a fool learns after his mistake, and a wise man learns after yours”. – Rev Run

“The best way to disconnect from wrong people is to become obsessed with doing the right thing! When your obsession is to do the right thing, wrong people will find you unbearable.Believe me that overweight, lazy, unfocused people will not follow you to the gym! Nor do those up to no good”- Rev Run

“You need a great team to make great things happen! Plans succeed or fail because of the people involved! (Remember) YOU CANNOT whistle a symphony!”- Rev Run

Emile Steenveld Speaker and Coach

Some people seem to naturally know how to effectively communicate in a group setting. They can express themselves clearly and listen attentively without dominating the conversation.

Being a powerful communicator is important for several reasons, including building and maintaining relationships, achieving goals, resolving conflicts, improving productivity, leading and influencing others, advancing in your career, expressing yourself more confidently and authentically, and improving your mental and emotional well-being. Effective communication is an essential life skill that can benefit you in all aspects of your life.

But, don’t worry if you don’t naturally possess this skill, as effective communication is something that can be developed with practice, planning and preparation.
 

1.  Listen actively: Practice active listening by giving your full attention to the speaker and responding to what they are saying.

 

2. Use “I” statements: Speak from your own perspective and avoid placing blame or making accusations.

 

3. Avoid assumptions: Don’t make assumptions about what the other person is thinking or feeling.

 

4. Be clear: Express your thoughts and feelings clearly and concisely by getting to the point and avoid using jargon or overly complex language.

 

5. Show empathy: Show that you understand and care about the other person’s feelings.

 

6. Offer valuable insights: When speaking in a group, provide a valuable takeaway or actionable item that people can walk away with.

 

7. Be an active listener: Listen attentively and respond accordingly, incorporating your points into the conversation.

 

8. Choose the right time: Pick the most opportune time to speak to ensure that you have the group’s attention and can deliver your message without interruption.

 

9. Be the unifying voice: Step in and unify the group’s thoughts to calm down the discussion and insert your point effectively.

 

10. Keep responses concise: Keep responses short and to the point to show respect for others’ time.

 

11. Avoid unnecessary comments: Avoid commenting on everything and only speak when you have something important to say.

 

12. Cut the fluff: Avoid being long-winded and get straight to the point.

 

13. Prepare ahead of time: Sort out your points and practice them before speaking in a group.

 

14. Smile and be positive: Smile and nod along as others speak, to build a positive relationship and be respected when it’s your turn to speak.

 

15. Take responsibility: Take responsibility for your own actions and feelings.

 

16. Ask questions: Ask questions to clarify any confusion or misunderstandings.

 

17. Avoid interrupting: Allow the other person to finish speaking without interruption.

 

18. Practice active listening: Repeat what the other person said to ensure you have understood correctly.

 

19. Use your body language too: Use nonverbal cues such as eye contact, facial expressions, and body language to convey your message and build rapport.

 

20. Be aware of the tone of your voice: it should be calm and assertive, not aggressive or passive.
