Next time you are at work, when you are alone with yourself for a moment, feel what it is like to embrace silence for roughly ten seconds. Silence… Sometimes making contact is even more engaging in the silence than in speaking, having to put on a show. Many of us are completely untrained in this.

Feel the moving stillness underneath the silence. Feel what you are moved to think, say and do – then pause just before speaking – and feel how much more fully present and engaging you are when you speak from this deep inner well in your innermost core.

Reach yourself first, and you will say even more.
