How good are you at listening? I mean, really listening.

We HEAR people and things around us every day. Hearing and listening are two different things.

It’s easy to hear the noise in our lives. We constantly hear the noise of our family, friends, coworkers, and bosses telling us what to do or who we should be.

Take time to listen today. Really listen to that small voice within us telling us that we can be more and live with passion.

Stop simply going through the motions of your life.

Don’t merely respond to everything around you. Start paying attention to what is already inside you. Take this moment to really listen.
