How do you communicate with other people? What is your own self-perception? Outsiders can easily see and feel how we perceive ourselves. Some of us can see ourselves as pioneering, competitive, confident, and everything else. What happens, though, when we’re stressed out? What happens when things don’t go well? What happens if we just lost an account? What happens if we just lost a large commission? Our self-perception changes, and that’s quickly telegraphed to other people. Other people can see that something is not right because we’re not the same friendly, outgoing, positive, confident person. We become something else. We can be demanding, opinionated, and aggressive, and people can be offended by our negativity. Learning how to communicate better with other people is an extremely important skill.
