Silence is a source of great strength.
– Lao Tzu
Meaning of this quote:
There is something powerful in silence. Even silence is a form of communication. Isn’t it true that sometimes we say a lot without saying anything at all?
Many of us are naturally quiet, while others practice being silent to make themselves stand out. In communication, silence can signify attentiveness and observance.
It is an art to know when to speak and when not to speak. It is always the words you choose that have the most impact, not the volume in your voice.
Only speak when your words matter more than your silence. The key to success is effective communication, and listening skills and verbal communication skills go hand in hand.
Every word you utter matters
The significance of every potential great thing may be diminished when it is in abundance, and the same is true for your words.
To make your word count, count your word. Every word you utter matters. Choose the right words to give value to it. The less is more, try to package it in a concise and clear manner to make your words even more effective and engaging.
The sound of silence is an effective communication tool. If you find yourself out of words, take a moment to reflect, gather the best words and carry on. The key is to say what matters most.
Silence is one of the great arts of conversation.
– Marcus Tullius Cicero
Sometimes a moment of silence can be deeper, more Intense, and more beautiful than conversation. Having a face-to-face conversation by looking into the eyes of the other person and letting silence settle in is a great way to make an impact.
The silence does not have to be filled with pause fillers such as “um” and “hmm”. When you find yourself out of thoughts or words, embrace the silence and take a pause. You don’t have to lose your composure, just take your time and get back with the words that matter.
Silence tells us everything if we listen
Silence is a part of nature, sometimes It communicates better than words ever do. Being in the presence of silence is the best way to observe and become attached to your surroundings.
Sometimes the most powerful thing to say is nothing. There’s a difference between a monolog and a dialog, when It comes to communication, the more you speak the less information you interpret from the other participants.
We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
Silence is a great source of strength because it increases self-awareness, makes us more compassionate, and more importantly, enables us to make great decisions with the greatest clarity possible.
Silence is the secret to inner peace. It allows us to calm our minds so that we can see our path more clearly. It makes us more focused and goal-oriented.
Isn’t it true that things get better and clearer when you know what you want and where you want to go? Self-awareness allows us to do that, and silence is the best way to achieve it.
A quiet pause allows us to re-connect with ourselves. It allows us to make a deeper connection with ourselves. It results in increasing self-consciousness. Knowing others is important, but knowing yourself is even more important.
Let the perfect balance between your words and your silence allow you to make a meaningful connection with others as well as with yourself to lead a fulfilling and meaningful life.
Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.
– Helen Keller
