Breakdowns and Opportunities: Using Communication to Turn Any Problem on it’s Head

We can’t always anticipate or control what life has in store for us, but we do have control over how we interpret and then react to what life throws our way.


If you’re alive and in business you experience breakdowns on a regular basis. In fact, that’s why companies are invented and why you have a job. Simply put, we exist to solve problems for other people including our families. The question that affects the quality of your life is this, “Do you view the challenges as a breakdown or as an opportunity?”


How you answer that question will have a direct impact on the quality of your life, your mood, your health, your relationships and vitality.


Watch this short video of Mel Auston speaking about Sidney Rittenberg and you’ll get a clear picture of what I’m talking about.   Life Is A Breakdown Or An Opportunity – 3:54
When life gives you lemons…make lemonade right? Yes… it’s a simple concept, but not always easy to do.
Sometimes, it is not easy to recognize the opportunity that lies hidden within each challenge we face. Sometimes, it takes a helping hand of a mentor or coach to guide us. Someone who’s been there before and is committed to our success. But regardless of what happens, it is our ability to make useful assessments and then communicate with others as we turn breakdowns into opportunities, that determines our success and fulfillment in life.


That’s right! Communication is at the heart of it all!
Making grounded assessments about life and effectively communicating with others is the key and in these blog posts we will attempt to illustrate that point. We will examine breakdowns in society and business and then apply the Language Of Commitment filter as we attempt to show how the challenges are for the most part directly tied to our ability to communicate effectively.


At the end of the day, our commitment is to you, our readers, and to the students in our Language Of Commitment program. Our intent is that you are better equipped to move effectively in the world and design the future that you want.


We can help you with that!
