Listen Carefully...........

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

It is an old saw but a true one as well. The better you are at listening the more likely you are to be successful. Most folks hear well enough but listening requires thought and not just capacity. It is simple really: everyone wants to be heard and cared about. Listen carefully and the world is your oyster.

Many frustrated people can be diffused from their anger if you listen. Everybody just wants to be heard. So very wise advice. Iread recently about holding your fingers against your lips to remind you to not interupt and listen, a good idea which I am trying.

Hi Sheila Anderson BRAVO this is a key point to a successfull business and life. Just shut up and listen!  I think that's the name of a new book just out!! Don't remember the authors name but it sure makes sense to me.

Hi Sheila... no doubt there is a difference between just hearing and really listening. Listening takes a really conscious effort.

Morning Sheila.

I like oysters, so I guess I'm a good listener.  Have a great Sunday

OMG, I echo what Lise Howe said! I ask that all of the time to Ray too - "What do you think they're thinking?" or "Wouldn't you love to be able to understand those two?" 

And, I totally agree with your sentiment. I was raised to speak only when spoken to and that we have one mouth and two ears for a reason. Being attentive and listening with because you really WANT to hear seems to be becoming more and more rare these days. Perhaps we didn't instill what our parents did in us, enough in our children!

Happy Monday, Sheila!

Oh, LOL at James' comment about oysters! If he doesn't come back, I think I know why he said what he said. Oysters have 'superpower' when it comes to hearing...AND (probably what he meant) they are rich in zinc. Zinc helps prevent hearing loss. There's your trivia for the day! 😉

Hi Sheila Anderson, there's a great difference between listening and hearing, the sooner we start practicing just that, the happier we will be.
