It’s Not What You Say That Counts; It’s What You Don’t Say

The Media Training Blog

Today’s entry is an excerpt from my updated position paper, “How Important Are Nonverbal Signals?” Stay tuned in weeks to come for more insights into how your body language affects your organization’s goals and your own career prospects.

——————-

Your audience is keeping an eagle eye on you as you speak. Yes, they are listening to your words. But they are also soaking up every gesture and vocal change you display. How important are these nonverbal cues?

To better answer that question, let’s examine the story from a different angle. Imagine yourself not as the speaker, but as an audience member.

Picture in your mind the times you have attended presentations and couldn’t wait to escape the room. The speaker may have been a world renowned expert in his topic with top notch content. But he stood still in the dark while using slides as a crutch. Or spoke in…

Life – Are you happy with it

Colors of my life

Are you happy with your life?

Are you living your life or going with the life or spending your life or taking things at a time or just shutting yourself up or have no clue what is going on!

I am asking because when I am seeing these days life, the above questions are coming in my mind, everywhere the people in general are going with the same mindset however, there are exceptions but few.

Life getting tougher rather than ease up. Life in 80’s are way good than in 90s and onwards!

Scriptures and Thoughts about: Proclaim

Mankato Church of Christ

Old Testament concepts:
To cry out (as the prophets)
To call upon one (often God) for help
To read aloud, or to appoint, or to be summoned

New Testament:
Kerusso – “to be a herald, to officiate as a herald; to proclaim after the manner of a herald, always with the suggestion of formality, gravity, and an authority which must be listened to and obeyed; to publish, proclaim openly something which has been done; used of the public proclamation of the Gospel and matters pertaining to it, made by John the Baptist, by Jesus, by the apostles, and other Christian teachers.”
Does everyone have a responsibility to proclaim the gospel?

(Matthew 5:16) In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

(Matthew 28:16-20) “But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the…

Go! Proclaim! Testify!

Thoughts To Live By


He said to them, “Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved. But he who does not believe will be condemned. Mark 16:15‭-‬16 MEV

The Great Commission still stands. We are toGo! Proclaim! and Testify! by every means possible.

We’re living in a time of great spiritual darkness that is enveloping whole nations. The spirit of anti-Christ is working overtime through the religions of secular humanism and Islam. The anti-Christ cults birthed in the mid-1800’s in America pale in their potential destructiveness.

If our nation and the rest of the world are to maintain a civilized societal structure Christians must become boldly outspoken in this hostile environment.

How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall…

Die Goeie Reg van ons Uitgangspunt

Pro Regno skryf

Die teëstander sal aan ons sê dat ons uitgaan van ‘n beginsel, nl. dat die Bybel die Woord van God is en ‘dat die Heilige Gees daarvan in die harte van die gelowiges getuienis gee; maar, sal die teëstander daarvan toevoeg: julle moet ons éérs die deugdelikheid van die beginsel bewys wat julle as uitgangspunt gekies het.

Ons antwoord is: Nee.

Elke wetenskap gaan uit van beginsels waaragter ‘n mens nie kan teruggryp nie, wat nie bewys kan word nie. Sonder sulke beginsels, as punte van begin, is geen wetenskap moontlik nie. Waarom moet dan net vir die Godskennis ‘n uitsondering gemaak word?

As die teëstander ons bevooroordeeld noem vanweë ons uitgangspunt, dan sê ons dat dit net so bevooroordeeld is om die Bybel aan te sien as ‘n boek wat gelykstaan met ander boeke, terwyl dit tog self sê dat dit die Woord van God is. Dit is hier nie ‘n saak van wetenskap en geloof nie, maar van geloof en ongeloof wat teenoor mekaar staan.

Die outoriteit van die Skrif rus dan ook, soos alle beginsels, in sigself en is vir geen bewys vatbaar nie. Die Skrif moet geglo word om sigself.

Dit is nie onwetenskaplik nie,

“Die band van die siel aan die Skrif as die Woord van God lê agter die bewussyn en onder die bewyse; dit is mistiek van aard net soos die geloof aan die principia (beginsels) in die verskillende wetenskappe” (Bavinck, Dogmatiek, deel 1, bl.634).

As iemand die lig sien, soek hy daarvoor geen bewys nie. Hy sal u sê: Ek weet dat daar lig is, want ek sien dit. Hoe weet ‘n lammetjie, al van die eerste dag af, dat sy ma sy ma is? Wel, omdat dit sy ma is!

So ook weet die gelowige dat die Bybel die Woord van God is, want hy hoor daarin die stem van God.

Die verskillende wetenskappe het wel, volgens hul verskillende aard, verskillende soorte beginpunte en verskillende metodes waarvolgens gewerk word, maar in die grond van die saak is dit, soos prof. Bavinck sê: die geloof aan die grondbeginsels is altyd mistiek van aard.

Time

EGOTIST

TIME

My time has passed and there’s no turning back

The tick tick sounds don’t change  to back back sound

Days are passing and  the wristwatch remains the same

The watch is getting worn out but time continues

It does not stop counting ,judging by your mood

It rotates like the earth not minding what is happing around!

Writing from the heart

living in love

light and darkness in constant conflict

fighting for a finite force inside a man

that weights who we are counting as human

animals have a heart too, can’t we have a better one?

building fences, digging trenches, owning ocean, lands, and potable water

where once it was free, delightfully refreshing putting in a bottle causing cancer. 

someone owns everything taking even from those who have nothing, such the way of life.

other’s gloat over their big enterprise while half of the planet eats mud to suffice hunger

such a way of life, bullying those who do differently, laughing at other’s mistakes forgotten they too have foul fart. Words leave a wound that scars for life, a soul will strive to rise, but eaten by his hatred inside. Societies can be so demeaning that causes a life to end. 

Others think differently, we do our own battles with different tactics some are born weak…

let go… or be dragged

heart prints

I used to feel uncomfortable when people asked me why I am estranged from my family. It is difficult to explain a life-long struggle in a few sentences. How do you describe the rejection and the hurt? How do you share openly without being judged? People with strong relational families find it hard to understand.

It was a decision that left me with a limp.

How do I explain the fact that I used to live in constant fear; that I continuously questioned people’s intentions instead of embracing and enjoying the joy of companionship? Can one measure the amount of time it took to rebuild my capacity to trust others; to build a new support structure?

Sometimes the strongest thing you will ever do will be to let go of someone. It will be painful, you will suffer guilt, and you will second-guess yourself, but for your own sanity…
