Putting across your Point of View
Have you ever had a conversation and the other person immediately goings into denial, justification or defending their point of view?
Is it that we are defending our point of view, or are we defending our beliefs around this point of view? Perhaps therefore some people become attached to their point of view, as if it is the only way to achieve this result.
What would happen if you simply gave up trying to defend your point of view? Being able to voice your point of view and then stop worrying about others agreeing with you. There is two important points I would like you to remember and that is not everyone is going to agree with you, and you can not control how others think?
When others try to prove you wrong listen to what they have to say. This does not mean that you agree with them. Many people who try to prove others wrong come from a fixed mindset instead of a growth mindset. Often, they do not take risks because they like to be the expert. This then leads into resistance to learning new activities. Part of the learning process is making mistakes and take the lessons from those mistakes to develop new skills.
You can not control how others think when you point across your point of view.
Not everyone is going to agree with you so stop trying to make everyone happy.
Focus on the process
Focus on the process and not the outcome. You have control over how you deliver your message and your intention behind your message.
Therefore focus on the process of ensuring that you deliver your message with Confidence, Conviction and Clarity. Then let go of the outcome.
Celebrate that you have had the courage to speak up and be heard. Therefore every difficult conversation you have, you win all the time.
