Whenever, Little White talk to Little black, he'll listen carefully! Before you talk, Listen carefully! There is alway great lesson to learn.

When people talk to us,

When people try to share with us to rectify our error,

When people try to give advise to us,

When people try to share their life experience with us,

How do you react?

Are you listening?

Are you hearing or listening?

Are you willing to listen?

Are you willing to accept your error and looking for way to improve?

Are you finding excuses to cover your error?

Are you trying to defend yourself even though you make error?

When we  look at ourself in mirror, we can see two ears and only one mouth, its mean we should listen more and talk less.

“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” by Stephen R. Covey

When we listen to others, we must act as an empty and clean glass, we can absorb new advice or teaching immediately.

 

Listen carefully, analyze with right mind, if whatever people saying is right, we should accept with open heart and improve ourself.

If whatever people saying is incorrect, just ignore and never put in your heart.

There is useless to remember what is wrong saying, no point to remind ourself again and again.

“So if we love someone, we should train in being able to listen. By listening with calm and understanding, we can ease the suffering of another person.” By Thich Nhat Hanh

Be mindfulness when listening!

Listen carefully before you open your mouth!

  1. Two ears, one mouth, yes! I hate when people are only pretending to listen so that they can get their point across the minute you pause for breath. Or correcting every detail so missing the point. Or when you are trying to put something into context and they say they don’t get the point because they haven’t given you chance to make. By listening long and only asking a few poignant questions we can learn much more about someone than by having many conversations with them.
