Today I’d like to tell you a story.
There was once a boy who never spoke. To anyone. He discovered he didn’t need to he had three younger sisters who spoke for him, and boy could they speak! They never had a dull moment where ever they went.
What the boy did best was to listen, and he discovered if he listened long enough, people would tell him everything and not even think twice about it. Rants, complaints and confessions. He continued to quietly hear and listen patiently.
Even his Mum’s friends asked this little boy to pop round to their house when they were feeling lonely or missing their own families so they had someone to just listen to them.
As the boy grew up he had to start talking in order to find his own way in the world but he never forgot his listening.
One day he was in Bremerhaven, just outside Bremen, Germany. He had just spent an exciting fun packed two weeks with a very friendly and welcoming family. On his last day, the boy was taken outside into the huge garden by his German host’s father. A very successful estate agent, the man wanted to use the last few minutes of his guests time with them to impart some knowledge to help the boy in this busy world.
After talking about what the boy had learned over the 2 weeks, they stopped near a fir tree. The man looked down at the boy who was admiring the view of the town below. He knelt down and looked the boy atraight in the eyes:
“There’s a whole world out there; waiting to hear what you have to say.”
The boy was impressed. In all his years of hearing and listening he had never heard such great advice. What’s more he understood exactly what the man was saying.
As soon as he got back to the UK, the boy made every effort to speak to anyone that would listen. He made friends quickly and discovered the world had been waiting
all this time for him to find his voice.
The boy grew up fast and now runs a successful company that listens to it’s customers; listens to it’s distributors and builds their business around what both are looking
Of course the boy was me; I’m a network marketing professional and I
cannot stress enough the power listening has made to my business.
Listen well and listen often, but above all listen with your heart.
