Courage just to listen

Monday, June 12, 2017

 

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and  listen. – W Churchill.

 

Take time, today just to listen to someone. Avoid all temptations to think how you’re going to respond, let alone say anything in reply. Just listen to what they are saying. If they ask for your advice freely give it. If they don’t you have your answer already for you provided the opportunity for them to simply share.

Listening in this way is one of the hardest skills to do so it is something that we need to practise every day. The more that we truly listen the more we’ll find others will feel safe enough share.

 

Remember though: listen to doesn’t that you have to agree with; it simply means letting go of the need to speak. See what happens when you just sit down and listen.
