AYD - May 30, 2012 - Listen to Yourself

"Most of the successful people I've known are the ones who do more listening than talking."
- Bernard Baruch

The word Success, does not have to come with a mental picture of a mansion and possessions and a pile of money.  Success...is achieving your results, and sometimes it comes in small, unnoticable writing on the wall.

Talking, is also a word that does not have to mean what you normally picture.  You do not have to be verbally speaking to anyone, or standing on the street corner talking passionately to air.  You may just find yourself with alot of inner "talking" going on.  Have you ever gotten really quiet, like middle of the nite noone around for miles quiet, and wished you had a volume button for all the chatter going on in your own head?

Did you ever consider how many conversations we have with ourselves...all....day....long? Constant, impolite, pushy, know it all, self made chatter. It is even more annoying when you find yourself repeating...yourself...to yourself.

It is these conversations, these talks, that distract me from more active, and progressive listening.

When your head gets so busy that you are interupting you - pause for station identification...and just let one side speak, and the other side listen like it was a beautiful harmony.  One melody of thought.  The rest will wait their turn. 

You will accumulate more successful moments listening to one idea,  and making the others raise their hands to speak.

Good morning,
Shhh...the voice said go back to bed.
