The world is such a frenetic place today with all its distractions that in pure self- defense we have switched off our ability to hear.
We all have so much noise going on in our lives that we no longer have the inclination to really listen.
It’s so easy to dismiss someone else’s concerns and we do this best by not listening properly.
But when we do listen we really get to understand where the person inside is coming from.
There is a real art to listening properly. Unfortunately not many people have cracked the secret of listening. Because the real art of listening is not only about listening to words.
Real listening has to do with understanding body language too. Real listening means looking into someone’s eyes with real understanding and truly getting the underlying message.
It means caring enough to become involved.
