Listening vs Hearing

Good listening is generally what allows us to observe the thoughts, feelings and behaviours of other people which could derive us to form new characteristics, whereas implementing the same is difficult. It changes one’s lifestyle, habits and unleashes the greed to become better every day.

Listening is when we hear someone, now that someone can speak good or something which is not meant for us. To implement and grab what is best for us becomes challenging. It hits us with a wave of force, self will or peer pressure.

We never get what we are to listen to. We often stumble over fake compliments and consider them our world; we ignore our inner self by not listening to what it wants to offer us. The good and the non-worth have a thin line between them. We implement things which we find golden and sparkly on the outside, but we never implement things which are set on best and positive notes. To have a positive implementation one must start listening to things which can teach us the quantity- quantity of how much one should be influenced, the quantity of how much is good for them and how much is just sparkly by its cover and not true from within, a quantity of how much efforts can one put on it, and determination on how much effort can be put in.

‘Listening is a sign of respect ‘ – Deborah Tannen. It is! Once we start implementing the nurtured and nourished values to our lives, passed on to us by different age people passing on their experiences. ‘Knowledge is not power; Implementation is ‘ – Garrison Wyn. To be good at implementation the deriving of good listening is important to create your palace of whatever you have wished for, and then it would not just stay sparkly on its cover, each step you take will be sparkly in and out.
