A listener is far more magnetic than a "know it all". Give people the gift of listening.
Listening. What is listening? Really, what is listening? Why is it that listeners are so much more popular and so much more magnetic than a know it all? Well, itís very simple; if youíre listening to me then you create a vacuum, and if you get deeply interested in me with passionate curiosity, you will create a vacuum that is so seductive, I will blossom into that space and Iíll say, ďOh my gosh. Thatís incredible. I didnít even realize I had thatĒ. Iím sure youíve done this, youíve had somebody listen to you and you kind of solved your own problem, because your own brilliance came out.
The opposite of listening is, telling. Telling people who they are or what they should be, and thatís not listening, and we fill that vacuum with what we know. How does it feel when youíre around a know it all? You can feel that canít you? And howís it feel when youíre around somebody who is deeply interested in you with an ulterior motive? Give people that gift.
