Motivational Power Quote
Let Your Advice Be Soft
"Advice is like the snow; the softer it fall,
the longer it dwells upon
and the deeper it sinks into the mind."
Samuel Taylor Coleridge, English Poet
As I see it. . . . . . . .
Let your advice be soft
People don't like to be lectured to or to be criticized. When you're giving advice keep this in mind and appeal to their softer side and your advice will have greater impact. Let your advice be soft.
People will resist hash advice and very likely tune the person out that offering the advice. If you want to words to have meaning let your advice be soft.
When you're giving advice what your saying will be very important. But what becomes critical in giving advice is how you say, what you have to say.
People will listen to advice when the feel it's sincere and they think that the person offering the advice has their best interest at heart. People will accept being help but they won't accept being push.
When you're offering advice know the person that you're offering the advice to and the purpose of the advice.
Offer your advice as a way for the person to get to what they're trying to accomplish not for personal satisfaction.
Let your advice be soft and let the other person be comfortable in accepting it.
