There are two crucial elements in effective communication: relaying a message and receiving a message. It is just as important to communicate the message as it is to ensure the proper message is received. Effective communication is vital to personal and business success. Often, companies provide employee training on how to communicate effectively. This essay focuses on listening and receiving the message the other person is trying to communicate.

Because we don’t communicate well with each other the effects can cause a divorce. Causes that led to divorce can be numerous. But, some of the most common reasons responsible for divorce are substance abuse, domestic violence, financial problems, and sexual and emotional infidelity. But the key to all these problems could be lack of communication. “To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” ( Anthony Robbins quotes American advisor to leaders)

True communication, what exactly is that? Telling your significant other how many times you went to the bathroom while you were at work? What you had for lunch? Real communication isn't explaining your entire day isn’t that interesting. True communication spans far beyond spoken words. It's verbal and mental, as well as even physical. More than half of the failed relationships out there, including your own, are due to the fact that there was a severe lack of communication between the two of you. In order to have a long and lasting relationship with someone, you must have excellent communication skills. You must be able to convey your emotions and your thoughts, as well as being able to absorb your partner's emotions and thoughts.
