One Simple Step for Creating Intimacy in All Your Relationships
Everyone has the desire to connect honestly and authentically with themselves and others, but often this is one of the most challenging things to do in our intimate relationships, never mind our more casual ones. If small talk is not your thing and you’re ready for deeper more satisfying connections in your relationships, here’s a quick tip to help create the honesty and authenticity you desire.
Think Before You Ask
One of the fastest, easiest ways we know of to improve the quality of your connections is by asking conscious questions. By conscious we mean questions that will result in answers that will be meaningful to you. If you’re looking for deeper connection, never ask questions about trivial issues or ones that you don’t really care about the answer.
To come up with conscious, meaningful questions ask yourself some questions first, such as:
- “What kind of connection do I want with this person?”
- “What kind of conversation would bring us closer together?”
- “What would be interesting for me to learn about this person?”
Knowing clearly what you want is the surest way to get it.
Ask Like You Care and Listen Like It’s Important
Whether you are talking to your mother, best friend, significant other, business customers, your boss, interviewing job candidates, or even talking to strangers at a party, it helps to take the initiative in creating the quality of connection you want and to draw the other person out in ways that are meaningful to you.
So try it today… What do you have to lose? What do you really want to know about the person you’re with? Get conscious. Be honest. Be authentic. Ask questions from your heart and listen with a sincere desire to know more about the person you’re with.
