Listening is about making an effort to hear something. While it is important to listen to others, it is also important to listen to yourself.
There are four things you should start listening to.
Listen to your curiosity. When you pursue or learn more about things that interest you, it brings more joy, excitement, and personal growth to your daily life. Look up something you have always been curious about. Who knows where it may lead. Find some joy in the unknown.
Listen to the people that inspire you. You will feel more fulfilled when you actively learn from people who empower you to think bigger and take action. Listening to people that inspire you may bring on a new way to handle something in your personal or professional life. Listening may just make you better.
Listen to your fears. You will ever feel fulfilled if you stay in your comfort zone. Your fears hold the key to unlocking our potential. Believe in yourself. Take on new challenges.
Listen to your truth. The main reason why most people are unfulfilled is because they are not living their lives in alignment with what they truly believe and value. You know who you are better than anyone else. Listen to that voice inside you.
“Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.” – Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
