30 EXERCISES TO SELF MASTERY: DAY 12 – LISTEN MORE THAN YOU TALK!

This one has been a massive breakthrough and when I say listen I mean that, listen to the voice of others, not the voice in your head thinking about the next story to follow the conversation, follow their story and ask questions, be curious! 

By listening we can see through, we can get to comprehend what others are experiencing and for me it’s interesting as well because to be honest, we are little aware of the words we use and how we use them, we affirm things about ourselves product of laziness or lack of self awareness and believe those things to be true. 

Words are power.

A word placed correctly can change the complete meaning of a sentence, a life, a day. 

A word misplaced or misused can condemn a situation, a person. 

Words are a great tool when appropriately used.

This is about the words we use out and the words we use in our heads. 

What are you feeding your mind? 

What are the repeating thought patterns? 

What are you over and over and over again playing in your head believing that to be true? 

In a previous post I wrote about the power of our thoughts and how they create our reality, words create thoughts and our thoughts connect with our emotions and then we take action. 

Just imagine ok, that you are able to think successful, positive, greatness, faith, strength, wisdom, 90% of the time. 

The trick here is more about being aware and patient through the journey than bottling happy thoughts. 

There is a secret and the secret is that whatever you feed your mind with that you will become. 

Simple. Powerful.

What you think you are is the product of books, media, people, situations, memories and beliefs transferred by bloodline or relationships. 

Imagine there is a way of transforming your life from the inside out, simply by reframing every single situation, memory, thought, belief, that you have. 

That’s a gigantic work right? The results are mind blowing! It’s worth working on it! 

To do this exercise the best way is to work on presence, on seeing what’s in front of you, learn how to read between the lines, ask questions if you can’t comprehend something, people will tell you what they need and what they are looking for if you are able to focus on them instead of focusing on you. 

Practical applications? 

Networking, business, relationships and life in general. The more you practice this skill the better you get at it.

Tip to get it better: remember that everyone has an opinion and not everyone’s opinion matters. Know yourself, know your strengths, and take the advice of those that resonate with you. You decide your life experience, be fearless!
