How to Improve Your Communication Skills Easily and Naturally.
In under two weeks time I leave for my first ever trip to China.
Myself and a friend will fly into Shanghai, and spend a short two weeks exploring the worlds most populous country.
In preparation for the trip (and hopefully many future journeys) I’ve been spending the last 3 months *trying* to learn Mandarin Chinese.
What a nightmare! For an English speaker, the language is a huge challenge.
Think about this:
When learning English, every single word is comprised of arrangements of the same 26 letters.
In China, to read a simple newspaper, you need to have memorized over 3000 characters!
Unlike learning French or a European language, between English and Chinese there is naturally very little overlap. So as you can imagine, it’s a massive challenge!
And it’s one many people encounter when learning to speak hypnotically.
When you are training yourself to speak to the subconscious mind in a persuasive, captivating and interesting way, you brain has to do a bit of rewiring.
At first, it all seems like too much as your conscious mind struggles to do everything logically and rationally.
At this stage you may look at other hypnotists and master communicators and ask yourself “How will I ever be as good as them!”
That’s where I’m at with Chinese now!
But, learning how to speak in new ways and communicate on different levels can accumulate gradually.
The more you learn, the more the pressure builds up.
Eventually the dam bursts, and you’ll be speaking like a master hypnotist without even having realized it!
A good friend of mine recently went to France on a business trip.
He’d been learning French on a off for years, but he was not that confident in his ability to speak it with the locals.
One night in his hotel lounge, he found himself striking up a conversation with a stranger.
They had an enthralling, passionate conversation about politics, music, sport – you name it!
When my friend was heading back to his hotel room that night the truth suddenly struck him:
He had been speaking French the whole time – without realizing it!
If you feel the pressure of trying to improve the way you communicate and speak more persuasively and hypnotically, you can relax.
Keep at it, and eventually the flood gates will open, and everything you need will come flooding through.
As I study Chinese, it’s important to continually remind myself of this – and I thought you might find it useful as well.
I’ll see you soon!
