Art of listening can be your
passport to success

When you listen to a person’s ideas and opinions, you let him feel that he is wanted. Psychologically he feels secure. No one wants to be a non-entity. Even the lowliest of the peon wants to be treated as something useful. True, everyone wants to be treated as somebody.
Believe it or not, the art of listening is your passport to success. It may seem difficult to learn, but once learnt, it pays dividends. It is a panacea for almost all human problems. If you really listen to what the other person has to say, you virtually make him feel important. And this is what every human being yearns for!
