Do you feel like no one listens to you?
Do you listen to others? No, I mean do you REALLY listen??
We have two ears and one mouth for a reason! Being a great listener is invaluable. People like nothing more than to be ‘really heard’. Well, YOU do don’t you?
Unfortunately, it’s very rare that we actually get ‘really listened’ to; why? because too often, someone else wants to interrupt and give their advice, make us feel better or put across their point of view.
Ever noticed yourself doing that?
Today I invite you to just listen, and when you feel the urge to talk, don’t! give someone else your undivided attention, in fact, take ALL the attention off yourself, and focus on the person talking. When that person stops, notice if you want to fill the silence because it makes you feel uncomfortable.
If YOU want to be heard, practice doing the same for others. You will be amazed with the results.
There is a saying, ‘less is more’. Today, how about using less words and listening more, and see what happens?
Do let me know how you get on….
