From Charging the Human Battery by Mac Anderson

“When we listen, really listen deeply, something shifts during communication.”  You might be thinking, “What does listening have to do with self-motivation?”  The answer is a lot!  Being a great listener is a key to building great relationships and great relationships keep us happy, healthy and motivated.  Why is that?  Feeling appreciated, wanted and loved are powerful human needs and that is what relationships give us.  They build our self-worth and self-image both of which are critical to staying positive and motivated.

 

Think for a minute about the friends you really enjoy being with.  They are sure to be great listeners.  Never forget that your ability to listen, more than any other factor, determines the quality of your communication.  The quality of your communication determines, more than any other factor, the quality of your relationship.  And the quality of your relationships, more than any other factor, determines the quality of your life.

 

“Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.”  ~General Collin Powell
