How do you listen so well that you develop the ability to hear what's not being said? I learned this skill from Master Coach Michelle Duval.
Michelle is just in her 30s and known as one of the best coaches in the world. Her ability to get people to take action, and transform their lives for the better is phenomenal and known the world over. She does this simply by bringing your awareness to your present state and then by facilitating the process of what must be done to get to your desired state.
"What is it that you're not saying?" Michelle asked when I finished introducing myself. "I wonder why you didn't make reference to your life before that?"
With her questions I went deeper and deeper within myself. And the understandings came. The realizations happened. And the path was paved for new beginnings.
To the degree we are dishonest with others and especially with ourselves, to that level we are unable to live with courage, confidence, and freedom. Courage comes from facing our fears. Confidence comes from doing and perfecting. Freedom comes from choice. Choice is the power to choose our thoughts, feelings, speech, and behavior, no matter what the circumstance. Freedom to respond instead of slavery to other people's point of view, their whims and fancies.
So listen well. Don't be afraid to hear the truth. Especially your own.
I wish you your best life.
