Have you ever been listened to? I mean, really listened to? Like the listener just got you and was totally present with you. 

If you’ve experienced that, how did it feel? I am betting if you remember someone who was a great listener, you remember how it made you feel. Well, it feels good. 

So what does it take to be a good listener? 

Here is the secret: listen

Second to that may or may not be as obvious. Don’t talk, and if you do talk, ask questions. Listen to understand, not to speak your truths about your situation. 

I have said this before, but I will say it again because it’s important: we are 100% responsible for how we listen, and this is the kicker – we are partially responsible for how we are listened to. Listen to help people feel accepted, understood, important, valued, and validated. 

As you go about the week, don’t talk, listen. I bet you’ll feel and see a difference in your relationships. 

If you want to talk, you know where to find me. 

Life is good.
