Getting Rid of Communication Barriers: Mini-steps to get rid of the Major Barriers
Some people are born with the ability to easily communicate with other people. And others, in some cases, find it really hard to express themselves. Sometimes, communication barriers and can get in your way and cause lots of trouble. " You want to express yourself, but words simply wont come out" or you would get really scared and sweaty that the person looking at you would think you are having a heart attack and would rather ask whether you are feeling okay rather than focus on the topic your are discussing! Overcoming communication barrier is a very important step.
First, be brave and take the initiative. Don't keep on staring at people hoping they would come to you and open a conversation. Be cool, confident, and believe in yourself for Pete's sake!
When speaking, try not to look so nervous. Instead, show some composure. Gee! People won't eat you if you made a mistake! WE are humans after all and humans make mistakes!
Make eye contact. Eye contact conveys interest, and encourages your partner to be interested in you in return. Trust me people will be more encouraged to talk to you and discuss whatever topic you are talking about if you maintain eye contact. Eye contact is an essential key. Don't be afraid just play it calm and safe. Holding the eyes of different members of your audience can personalize what you are saying and maintain attention.Be confident that in this big world some one must have the same belief. Say it out loud. don’t feel ashamed! Courage courage ,courage is all it takes
Say your opinions out loud without disrespecting others’ especially when talking about politics and religion. Remember to articulate your ideas with complete respect to the others. Briefly state what you think, and then ask the other person for his/her opinion. A one-side conversation is not nice! Thus, give space for your partner to join.
People can't hear mice. Speak loudly enough to be heard. When you are saying what you think, have the confidence to say it so as to be heard. Don’t be afraid of failure. Failure is part of life’s course. Take every single day as a challenge and work your way up.
Practice makes perfect. Don’t feel down ! It takes a little while to get used to talking in public. But trust me the outcome is worth every try. I remember my first days school and it wasn’t such a pleasant site .I would literally get tortured a 1000 times before saying a couple of words.
Finally, be strong! You are an independent strong woman/man. Take control of your life and don’t let a silly issue like this ruin your life! Live away from fear!
