Connect Fast and Influence People

According to experts, we are bombarded with more than thirty-five thousand messages a day. Everywhere we look, someone is trying to get our attention.  At the same time, we also have messages we want to get across to others. I’ve read that, on average, most people speak about sixteen thousand words a day.  But the question is, how many of your words would matter? How many would make a difference? How many would get through to others? Talk is easy. Everybody talks. The question is, how can you quickly connect with and influence others?

Educators often take something simple and make it complicated.  Communicators take something complicated and make it simple.

~ John C. Maxwell
