Advancing Your Career Getting Married Overcoming Relationship Challenges

Each day we are forced to improve ourselves to meet the demands of our own expectations as well as the expectations of those around us. The vital link between us and other people is communication. If we are unsuccessful with our communications, it is very likely that we will be unsuccessful with just about every other area of our life that involves people. Unfortunately, successfully articulating our thoughts and feelings is a challenging job. Add to that the challenge of comprehending others with empathy, and we can see why effective communication is not an easy task.
