Messages from the Masters
Listening? by Doug Firebaugh

Less is More. 

What does that mean? 

Less talking is more powerful, as you increase your arsenal to succeed and win...and expand your bullets to hit the Victory bull’s-eye...through the Incredible Power of... 

Listening. 

Do you realize Listening is a Power that can be exercised and tapped into; and with it, you can change lives...including your own? 

My mentor taught me that..."Doug...Listening is the Million Dollar Skill...Master it, and you have mastered the Power Core of Communication, Connection, and Caring...found in the Heart of Success". If you study great leaders, most were great listeners, and learned from it. 

Who do you know that is a great leader in business or your community?  If you study them, study their Listening habits... 

When you listen next time with someone...give 100% attention and don't let anything distract you... 

Remember...this is their time with you...respect it. 

Lock onto not just the Moment, but the Message within the Moment. (CLUE!!!!!) 

REALLY Listen and you will be surprised what you hear that you've missed before... 

Here is an idea...let's engage: 

An Active Listening...not just with your ears, but also with your eyes and heart...
A Powerful Body Language...Look in your folk’s eyes, and lean their way, to show connection.
A Caring Focus...listening starts with the heart. 
A Content Focus...listen for the content, not just the intent... 
An Empowering Attitude...encourage and edify all that has been said, show gratitude for them thinking enough of you to share...

When you listen, you are... 

Leveraging (&) Increasing Success That Empowers Now.  LISTEN!

Your Listening will Leverage the Power found within it to Increase Success in Empowering the Now. Absolutely nothing can Empower a situation, a moment, or a person, for Success, like Focused, Magnetic listening.  People are not only Attracted to it...but compelled to be a part of it...and are drawn towards it...

The Power of Listening truly is the "Million Dollar Skill..." Most people treat it like a 5 dollar attitude... 

My Mentor also said..."The last word in listen is ten...Listening is 10 times more Powerful and Success Attracting in the long run, than talking..." 

Are you Listening????? 

Blessings....
