What you listen to is just as important as what you eat and what you read!

We all know that the most successful leaders have obtained the ability to learn continuously, most of them through reading. They understand the importance of learning, reading and consuming information that will add the same value to their lives as food ads to their bodies. Not everyone likes to read as much as others, but we all have to listen and even though we might never read anything of value, what we listen to on daily basis has just an important impact on our lives!

Every day we go through our normal routine, for most people that would involve working from Monday to Friday and spending our weekends doing the things we enjoy. During that time we listen to various forms of information, it might involve listening to the radio on our way to work, the normal conversations that take place at work, and the conversations we partake in outside of work with family and friends. Whether or not we use our time to read anything, we listen to information all the time, each and every day whether we like it or not. So in other words, we can choose to read information that will benefit our lives, eat foods that will improve our well-being or provide us with satisfaction, but we forget that each and every day we have to listen to various forms of information and somehow we avoid the importance of this and its impact on our lives. When we are able to identify this core aspect of our lives, the fact that each and every day we consume numerous sources of information by listening we can begin to understand how this has an impact on us and how we can control it to our benefit. We can begin to train ourselves and set our lives up in a way where all the information that comes our way each and every single day is directed towards what we want to achieve in life and what we value. From Monday to Sunday, from the time you get up till the time you get to bed, even when you're sleeping, you can use your ears, to benefit your body, mind and spirit in a way that feeds your destiny!

How do we do this? First, we need to identify this resource and what it means by looking at 2 key points that are vital towards understanding the true power of listening.

1. Listening affects our thinking which affects our actions

What we listen to each and every day whether it draws our attention or not feeds our minds consciously and subconsciously. That means that whether we like it or not what we hear every day affects the way our mind thinks which ultimately affects our actions. For example, if you listen to the same radio station each and every day to work and all they talk about each day is how bad the situation is in your country, whether you agree with them or not subconsciously your mind will begin to strengthen this thought due to the fact that it keeps hearing this over and over again. Before you know it your subconscious will begin to manifest this thought in a way where you consciously begin to believe it. When you catch yourself you will be talking about this the same way the radio station talks about it, but what follows is you will begin to hang out more often with people that share that opinion due to the fact that as human beings we prefer to stick with people that agree with us on certain things, things that we consciously decide to believe in as those are the things that matter to us and the things we value.

What you will end up with is not only a belief system that became part of you but a belief system that was forced upon you and is now influencing not only your beliefs but also your environment or circumstances. Whether this was done intentionally or unintentionally you could end up making the decision between beliefs that will affect almost every aspect of your life based on something you never truly chose to believe. No one's fault really, just a habit of listening to something and not understanding the importance of what you listen to and the effect it has on you. On the other hand, should you have listened to that same radio station that you listen to every day only speak about how great your country is, then the effects will be the same but in the other direction? Now I am not saying don't listen to the radio and that radio stations are bad, all I am saying is that we need to take these things to heart and understand the importance of listening and how this affects our thinking and ultimately our actions. Remember, you might not read, but you have to listen and what you listen to matters, just as much as what you eat matters to your body. We have ears to hear, not just by default but to hear what we need and want our minds to believe! If you do not direct this extremely important ability we are so blessed to have, then our minds will think that whatever its hearing is what YOU have chosen for it to believe and that is what it needs to believe. Don't let other people who choose to speak influence what you choose or do not choose to hear.

2. You don't have to force yourself to listen!

For people that don't like to read, it can be difficult to take the time and read an entire book from back to front in one session or let us say in one week. But listening requires zero effort and if you're blessed enough to have the ability to hear, which most of us have, do not take this for granted and gain the understanding of how to use it in your favour! Because you listen each and every day by default, just like breathing, your body does it and your mind takes that information and processes it! So if listening happens without you even trying, how awesome will it be to channel this resource so that when you listen to all you hear are things that contribute towards your destiny, goals and dreams! If you are able to do this then you will soon realise how effective this can be.

If someone needs to know how to build something and there are books available on how to build it, logic tells us that when they read that book they will most surely enable themselves and require the skills they need to complete the task at hand. So if that is the case then surely it can relate directly to eating which we all know is so important to our lives that if we don't eat, we die! If you need to lose weight then you know you need to eat healthy foods, doing so WILL deliver the results. So therefore what you read, will determine what you are capable of doing, what you eat will determine what your body is capable of doing, both of them contributing to your life, your body, your future in a way that is either positive or negative depending on what you eat and what you read. You might choose not to read, but you still have to eat, and whether or not you control what you listen to, you still have to listen whether you like it or not. What you listen to will also have the same effect, listen to the negative, you will believe and talk about the negative, listen to the positive and you will believe and talk positive. What this means is that even if you refuse to read, you have to eat and listen, and that means that listening is more important than reading because reading can still be avoided, but listening and eating cannot! So if listening and eating are vital to who you are and what you become, then it is vitally important to take note that should you not feed your dreams with what you listen to, surely they will never come to life. Just as you will never stay alive if you refuse to eat and try to understand the importance behind WHAT you eat!

The best part about is that even eating has to be forced, even if we want to eat, it is still an act that we have to consciously take part in and can still be avoided if you choose to! Listening my friend, cannot be avoided, even if you close your ears and avoid to eat or read, you will still have to listen to the sound of your stomach screaming I'm hungry and your own thoughts within your quiet mind that will be talking about all the things you chose or did not choose to listen to up until that specific time in your life! So if this is the case, then how do we use this powerful resource to our advantage. The resource that comes even before reading or eating, the resource we avoid so often but should actually value more than others!

Here are 8 ways to begin listening in such a way that we begin to feed your destinies with it!

1. Negativity kills

Avoid all negative forms of information. This is crucial and people might tell you that you need to know what is going on in the world. Bullshit! We all know what is going on in the world, and truth be told those that have made a positive impact on it refused to waste their time listening to the negative. If you find yourself being negative, listen only to the positive and avoid the rest. Do so long enough until you can take some of the negative without it influencing you. Should you catch yourself falling back into your old ways, then just focus on cutting out the negative all together. To many people consume themselves with the troubles of the world when they can have such true peace and joy without having to believe that their lack of reading the news makes them less informative on what is happening around them. The best way to influence your circumstances is not by feeding yourself with what worries you but by feeding yourself and those around you with a positivity that can overcome any obstacles others might believe is impossible to overcome!

7. Listen is a leadership quality unlike any other

People love a good listener just as much as they hate someone who cannot listen to them especially when they have something important to say. Listening does not only feed your destiny, but listening and a continued focus on listening and what to listen to, will allow you to ultimately become a better leader. Take the time someday to truly listen to someone, it could be a stranger, a colleague, even your wife, try it on a first date. Listen with such intent that they will clearly be able to identify the attention you are giving to every single word they say. Do that and begin to see how quickly this person will build up an appreciation towards you. People absolutely loves someone that listens to them in such a way, it's a no brainer!
