Reasons To Listen More

Mindset, Positivity
We all know the saying, "Everyone's a critic," and to be sure, people do love to make their opinions heard, whether they're an expert on the subject or not. At times, we may even begin to tire of being, what seems, constantly criticized. But there are three great reasons why we should take a breath, step back and listen up each and every time.

Learn How To Listen

Mindset, Positivity
Do you want to know how to be more charismatic? Try listening more. People tend to be self-absorbed and are constantly thinking about themselves.

Mindset, Positivity, Success
Did you ever meet someone and think right away that maybe you couldn’t trust them? What was it about them that caused you to feel that way? Well, non-verbal communication, commonly called body language, is the way our bodies tell another person about whom we really are and what we really think. There’s a reason Hollywood portrays the villain in an ugly light, just as they make the hero look like he can do no wrong. They want us to be sure who the players are. In this non-verbal way, we speak volumes to others. Do you have your arms folded across your chest? People are less likely to approach you, as you seem closed off and un-open to them. But the person with their arms at their sides, or…
