“Knowing when to speak up and knowing when to shut up is business and life mastery” There are too many people out there trying to get ahead and they’re talking too much and definitely not listening enough. Everything you need to find, love, grow and discover are out there on podcasts, Youtube videos, in masterminds, on courses, and with your mentors, if you stop talking, stop interrupting and start listening. Tune in today to discover why listening matters and how to gain more information, extract more education and get more inspiration with your host, Rob Moore.
- When you’re talking you’re simply not listening. The information, education, and inspiration are being missed because you’re talking and not listening.
- If you talk, not only are you not getting information, you’re also not extracting information out of people. But when you listen and occasionally ask good questions, people will ask you all sorts of stuff that you wouldn’t get otherwise and it can make a huge difference in your business and personal development. A good example of this is viewing properties and just letting the vendor talk and share and vent and from this, you can understand their motivations and serve them better. If you want to make someone feel important just let them talk, from customers, clients, vendors, and prospects, just let them express themselves and let them talk.
- To allow people to talk to you and give you information and this could be your customers, leads, prospects, and clients, they must be able to feel comfortable around you must ask good questions, listen and listen with interest using your eyes, ears, and bodies.
- Billionaire Jim McColl has bought over 85 businesses in his industry and one of the main reasons he was able to do this was because he was simply non-threatening.
- Sometimes ego takes over and you try to talk and try to overcome the nervous and restless energy by talking, but this can omitted a sense of desperation and it takes a lot of wisdom, self-awareness, and self-confidence to just sit, listen and take it all in.
- Occasionally people stop listening and start talking when they’re triggered. They say and rant stuff online, on social media and in emails and as a result, it’s out there for good. These people can damage reputations and relationships because they don’t know when to shut up and they let their ego get the better of them.
“When people are waiting to talk, they’re not listening and they’re missing out on the details and important information that can be had from listening”
“If you’re in therapy or need to have a rant and need to ‘let it out’ that’s okay, but do it privately and get permission to vent.”
“You’re going to learn a lot more in a dialogue and not a monologue”
“The best seat in the house at a mastermind is the person with the least money, the least experienced and the most to learn”
“Wisdom is a balance of knowing when to talk and when to listen, when to express and when to act and ask questions”
“Sometimes the ones that say nothing are the dark horses that listen, learn and take it all in”
“Knowing when to speak up and knowing when to shut up is business and life mastery”
