    We do not learn a thing when we are talking. We only learn when we are listening. Breaking the temptation to speak can be diFficult.

      I agree. Focus on the person speaking is difficult, more especially if there is a difference of opinion. This is why Politicians are not seen as good listeners; they have their own agendas too!

    Listening is a gift. Distracted minds cannot and so not listen, they hear…..but it just drifts to the land of far, far away. If you have the gift if listening, it is a far more intimate manner as you will convey focused interest on the speaker. I working on it, I can often listen when it is of interest or something painful for the other person. My husband is so distracted he doesn’t understand about the gift of listening, which used to drive me nuts. Now I see we all have different gifts and shortcomings….so somethings just are what they are. Thanks for sharing

      It’s so easy to get distracted and therefore not easy to listen Paula. Focusing attention on the person speaking to you is always appreciated. Thank you for your comment.

    I agree that listening is not really taught in schools. They expect the child will listen to the teacher but they never focus on helping the child to understand about listening. It is put across as a commend (you will listen now) rather than teaching them how important listening is in the real world.

    Enjoy the journey!

    politicians have their very own way of thinking. IT is definitely something that is unique to that particular group of people.

    Hi Barrie,

    I am looking up “The Success Principles” by Jack Canfield. So far I have found a download for iphone.
    True listening is an art, “using the power of listening to build rapport and connections with people”
    Asking someone 4 important questions, “doing active listening ” without interuption is genius, a great way to build rapport with others through the power of listening. I will look to find more on Jack canfield. Enjoyed your article.
