Positive Attitude Tip:
There are many people who need to listen to how they currently communicate. Not only what words they say, but also how they listen. Focusing on the positive not on the negative. When you consciously focus on speaking and listening in a positive manner then you will find it does make a difference.

Two tips...
1. when speaking try and focus only on the good, find the good in the situation and focus on that

2. when listening, truly not try and think about what you are going to respond, just listen.

As Epictetus once said,
"We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak."
