If this blog is a marketing place, then LISTENING is what I’m trying to sell.
I reckon you’ve never met someone who doesn’t enjoy attention. I’ve never heard anyone saying, “Don’t listen to me.”
Listening can be a merchandize and craft. Multibillion dollar industries are built on professional one-to-one listening: in psychotherapy, private classes, counseling and massage, to name a few.
Some of us only need to be listened to in order to be saved. Like how this guy found out when he listened to young people behind bars. He said,
“We need to listen to what they have to say because it is often more important, more thought provoking and truer than anything we, as their seniors, have to say.”
But why should you listen to others if nobody listens to you?
Because listening gives you a glimpse of someone else’s journey at an intimate level. You exchange respect. You boost egos. You would be in a state of unconditional loving. You diagnose more accurately, and troubleshoot faster.
Dude, that’s a lot of problems getting fixed just from active listening. Did you say you wanted to be a superhero? Then listen.
Besides, the more stories you know, and the wiser + humbler you become, is the more people wanting to hear what you have to say.
And you would love that, won’t ya?
I’ll leave you with DEVIL FINCH:
PS. So when can we hangout again?
