In the existing noisy world, would you consider yourself a listener? Do you listen and get to hear what others have to offer? Get to know what they have to say, try to understand where they coming from, or even get some tips? Listening is a very powerful tool, yet ignored by many.
Listen and Learn
You don’t have to agree with what they have to say, but you need to have an open mind to grasp something useful.
You have to mean it, and for a second forget anything that might cause you not to give them a listening ear. Humor yourself and give them the benefit of the doubt.
Listening allows you to absorb more from whoever you are listening to. So you have to calmly listen t them, without having to ask questions. Allow your brain to be at ease, let it not listen with the intention to ask questions. But rather to gather information.
Understand and Action
With the collected information, make it useful.
Did you get anything new? Did you get corrected? Did you get why their reasoning is different from yours?
All our problems are connected if we all worked as a team without any selfish or greed motives. We can solve a whole lot of these problems.
We have all been taught what was believed to help us. Leading to various scripts. Which we end up unlearning as we grow up. From life experiences, we are able to tell what works and what needs to be changed. That’s why everyone is entitled to their opinions.
Human is to error
No human is perfect, despite their IQ, EQ, wealth, or wisdom. We all have weaknesses, how we handle them helps us survive on this beautiful plan through adaptation.
What happens when we refuse to adapt or accept circumstances? In the wilderness, its survival for the fittest. In our human world, strength doesnt necessarily save you but being smart on how you handle stuff.
Why not work with them?
When you have fought something for a long time, but nothing seems to materialize. You may need to change your tactics. But if that one fails too, then you better join them. If you can’t conquer them, then join them.
This doesn’t mean that you have lost but shows that you are ready to do anything to make things better. Influencing from inside works the magic.
