Are You Really Listening

Are you really listening?

The next time you are in conversation with someone think about this question for a second. Many times we’re simply thinking of what we’re going to say next, rather than actually listening to the person with a clear mind.

If you’re guilty (as I sometimes am) of this at times there’s some really bad news. The other person knows this as well. It’s written all over our faces.

It’s in the very words that we use to follow up with in our discussion with that person. The good news is that by making ourselves aware of the fact that we’re not truly listening we can begin at that very moment correcting the problem. Make yourself aware of the importance of listening and you’ll reap many rewards. It’s one of life’s most awesome facts that people are drawn to those who are good listeners.

Upon reading the biography’s of many leaders one thing is clear. Each in their own way are magnificent listeners.

*************************************

On thing that happens when you are shy is that you have difficulty listening.  The reason being you are involved in your feeling of shyness.  That means you feel self conscious, nervous, anxious, hyper sensitive etc.  With all of this going on in your head how can you listen to what the other person is saying to you?

In order to listen you need to remove the background noise.  Of course you know this but how do you remove the background noise?   

One way is with a system that can show you how to do this.  I know you have studied and analyzed your shyness extensively.  Why not stop that and put the effort into overcoming your shyness?  You can do it.
