This is a Best of Post - but well worth repeating!
Change is hard, listening may be even harder. When we are changing we may find ourselves having to find more time to listen. Listening takes energy.
Finding the right people to listen to is not easy. Missteps are usually found along this path. The best method for selecting good "listening" is to go with your intuition. Listening to a person who is soothing might be good, yet they can lull us into a stasis, state of complacency or even a paralysis of indecision. Listening to someone who causes us major anxiety may not be a good choice either. However, sometimes the individual's who causes us minor anxiety and inner turmoil are helping us develop new thoughts, thinking patterns and helping us change.
Listen to learn, listen to grow. Change will come.
Who do you plan on listening to?
