Divine Art of Listening
The more listening you do, the more God-like you will appear. At the same time you will also become more smarter. You will be liked better and make excellent conversationalist.
A good listener always winds up far ahead of a good talker in the affections of people. This is because, a good listener always allows people to hear their favorite speakers, themselves.
Top 5 Rules to become a good listener
- Look at the person who is talking. Anyone worth listening is worth looking at too.
- Lean towards the speaker and listen intently. Appear as if you don’t want to miss a single word.
- Ask questions. This let’s the other person (the talker) know that you are listening.
- Stick to speaker’s subject and don’t interrupt. Avoid changing subjects on a person until he is finished; no matter how anxious you are to get started on a new one.
- Use the speaker’s words — you and your. When you use I, me, my and mine, you are switching the focus from the speaker to yourself. That’s talking not listening.
