Daily Word: Learn to Listen!!
Happy Tuesday, my active and attentive!
Welcome to a new day and new opportunity to do it better than before! Today's Daily Word is
dedicated to listening. Alvin Toffler once said that the illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn...
There is a tendency nowadays to feel that we know it all. We speak before we fully hear what's being said, and we are reluctant to take advice by mistakenly treating it as criticism! We must Learn to Listen!! Sometimes the answers to our questions are right before our eyes, but because we are too busy talking, we miss the opportunity!
It is imperative that we are ,confident but do not be so confident that you are unwilling to learn
from those around you! Whether young or old, rich or poor, experienced or inexperienced, there is something to learn from everyone.... Listen and let those lessons be taught!! Your Greatness is solidified! Get out of your way and allow it to blossom!
