Did you notice that LISTEN and SILENT have the same letters?
All successful people I know listen a lot more than they talk. That’s because:
“If you talk you are repeating what you already know. If you listen, you may actually learn something new.”
You may also learn that someone needs help, guidance and support. That someone may even be you.
It is a form of respect to listen to what someone else has to say.
It is a form of disrespect not to.
You can not be someone’s friend, leader or spouse if you do not listen. Not for long, anyway.
