Are you a good listener?

“The Great Spirit gave you two ears and only one mouth, so you can talk half as much as you listen” – Iroquois

Often when people are frustrated and complaining, they aren’t looking for you to solve their issues. They simply want someone to listen.

Good listeners do so with focus and compassion. They give people the gift of their full attention. This is a powerful source of happiness, as it creates strong bonds between people and places you in the now.

Whether it’s your colleague, partner, or a complete stranger on the street, decide to be more present in all your conversations.
