''I Simply Listen''

Wednesday night's Learning Annex workshop in NY was FAAAANTASTIC! Thanks to all of you who turned out, and thanks for all the emails of support from those who couldn't make it! Don't forget, there's another coming up on DEC 11th! Visit www.learningannex.com to register. (And, if you'd like to have one in your city, contact Holly at feedback@learningannex.com)

The workshops are always fun events for me as I get to meet new people and explore new ideas. And today's inspiration is to the young lady who asked my secret to helping people find their inner passions the way I do. I reply......

I start by asking questions
and the answers that I seek
give focus to your dreams
and help your inner heart to speak

I listen for commitment
in the promises men make
A man will get results
when it's his happiness at stake

I listen for the hunger
in the dreams women pursue
for that predicts the measure
of the things that they will do

I listen for the anger
and the ire that men vent
For many worlds of wealth
have grown from seeds of discontent

I listen for the value
people place on what they love
You'll find that's what they'll likely choose
when push comes down to shove

And sometimes what I hear
are things you wish but never voice
And all I do is offer thoughts
that show you have a choice!

And so it is in many of our relationships. You can be a source of guidance for those you love if you simply listen. Honor their reality, and they'll often tell you what they want to hear.
