Why we must listen with humility...

Forget who you are, forget who the speaker is. Just listen to what is being said. Don't interrupt, don't ignore. Listen. Listen with humility and you'll benefit from what you hear. Forget your own experiences. Stop evaluating as something is being said. Don’t assume things. Don’t let your predetermined image of the person distort what you are listening. Listen to understand, not to respond. Listen to the story in between the speaker's speech. Listen to the pauses. You'll always end up being wiser than before.  Listen with humility to show that you truly care.
