They all say that listening is important to succeed. They all say and profess the power of listening.

Now, as you read today’s post I want you to not just read between the lines but listen to them.

Listen to the power of their words.

Listen to what they say:

Larry King said, “Learn how to listen. I never learned anything when I was talking. The best learning lesson I can give you on accomplishment is to listen. Learn how to listen. You don’t learn anything when you are talking. Think about it.”

Steven Spielberg said, “Listen and learn. From a very young age, my parents taught me the most important lesson of my whole life: They taught me how to listen. They taught me how to listen to everybody before I made up my own mind. When you listen, you learn. You absorb like a sponge – and your life becomes so much better than when you are just trying to be listened to all the time.”

Dr. Mehmet Oz said, “If you listen, you’ll hear things.”

Are you listening?
