tip tuesday - learn how to listen

For some of us listening comes naturally. For others it's a skill that can be learned.

Listening is underrated and very powerful. It requires a bit of self control, and a dash of stillness. To be fully present and engaged in all of your interactions is ideal and achievable with practice so be aware of your next opportunity to take the focus off of yourself and place it exclusively on the person you're talking with. You can learn a lot about others by listening with your whole self, you can learn a lot about yourself too.

When you learn to listen better, you can find the stillness that allows you to hear those opportunities that cross your path everyday.
