Remember, when you speak, think of why you are saying what you are saying.
What do you want from the other person?
You are trying to do something – it’s an action. So imagine that it’s a PINCH. Remember that every time you say something, it is like a PINCH.

言葉を発する前に「なぜ」それを言うのかを考えて見ましょう。相手から「何」を得ようとしているのか。言葉を通じてあなたは行動しようとしているのです。だから、言葉はPINCH(つねること)だと想像してみてください。何かを言うときは、相手の心を「つねる」よう心がけるのです。
