I tend to be blunt, often preferring the direct path to the point over the “around the bush” route. It’s not that I long for confrontation, I just don’t mind it. It is easy for me to separate the topic at hand and the emotion involved. It’s not personal.
The challenge for me with the podcast is communicating the truth in a straightforward, no holds barred style, while not starting fires. There will always be someone who takes things the wrong way, but I have to do my best to make it easy for people to be a part of the conversation. Offending people won’t get us anywhere.
Am I going to sugar coat things? Nope. Sorry not sorry! I just have to be clear about my intentions and constantly remind myself: this is not about you, this is not about your opinion, this is about bringing the truth to your listeners.
I must be the first to set aside my personal feelings, which are based on my very limited (in the grand scheme) life experiences. Each and every one of us has a perspective, like looking through a small hole from the box in which we live. If we aren’t willing to look through someone else’s hole, we will never see beyond our little slice of the world. Every human being has a chance to see the world from a different angle.
