Some of the people you encounter haven’t had someone REALLY listen to them in a long time!
Everyone is busy doing life and concerned about themselves. So to find someone genuinely interested in another person is rare. Work on being that rare person.
Listen… not waiting for a pause so you can say what you want to say.
Listen… not reinventing what you hear and creating your own interpretation.
Listen… to the exact words a person is say. People usually say what they mean and if you tell them the exact words that said, if that’s not what they meant they’ll correct it.
Listen… listen long enough and you’ll heart a persons truth. Believe them.
This works for your nearest and dearest, complete strangers and everyone in between.
Practice true, deep, genuine Listening!
