Listening Is My Native Language

Wassup everyone, I remember my dad would tell me to silence that little member under my nose. He would say if I were to open my ears and listen more than my urge to speak and hear my own voice I would learn and attain so much. Listen with your ears not your mouth. That’s kind of the problem in our world so many people over talk one another. The desire to hears ones own voice is toxic. Everyone wants to be heard but don’t want to understand and listen to someone. You can learn alot if you stayed quiet. Each person has a reason why they are talking and trying to communicate something. This world might a little bit better if we took the time to hear one another speak. We could reach better conclusions on a common goal or criss if the communication was there. But anyway listen with your ears bit with your mouth. It gives the brain a chance to learn and understand what is being said.
So peace

Often the quietest voices are the easiest to overlook. A lot of communication is listening – not just lis-ten-ing to figure out what you want to say in response.” – Johnny Ive

Probably the biggest leaps in my careers have been when I have stopped myself from listening to respond as Johnny talks about above, and instead work harder at listening to learn. I got so many best practices and learned so much in those moments. It changes you if you can stop being antsy enough to control the urge to want to always talk over someone.

You get to really know someone when you let them talk. You make a connection of trust. Not everyone wants the answers you think you have. Some have the answers and all they need is someone to listen to them and help guide them on wether they are on the right track or…

Wassup world. I am Keyshaun Jamel Collins and what can I say about myself. First thing is that I never thought that I would be sharing my life, thoughts, experiences, ideas, and dreams aka my business with the world. I’m simply an introverted guy who views the world differently but prefers to keep to myself. I graduated from college nine months ago with my Bachelors of Science degree in psychology. That’s a big accomplishment for me. Yet, that’s not about me. I am a Chicago native born and raised to a black dad and mom who are still married till this day. That don’t describe me. I got a Puerto Rican and Mexican fiancée; my guy friends I had to break free from them because they were jealous. Couldn’t understand how I had the tools to get that one girl, while they stepped up to the plate swung and missed. That’s not about me. Went outside day after day practicing on what started as a dream in hopes of one day becoming a reality. I did not have the mental strength to let this curricular activity go, so I could realize that this was meant to be metaphor to teach me life and prepare me for my true gift. Now that’s me. I am a firm believer in to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). My goal is to give back, it is very easy to receive so much in life, but the real reward is to give back that knowledge so you can help the next fellow man under you struggling in whatever his/her situation may be. Through this website I have an opportunity to inspire, encourage and motivate. Paint a picture with my words while telling a story about my struggles, hard aches and pains; also the down falls and faults that I bare witness to everyday while I interact with numerous people everyday. How am I able to achieve this, simple I know myself. I know my self worth as a man because I envision it, claim it, speak it and walk in my authority confidently because I understand it. Like my dad and mom always say “If you don’t stand for something than you’ll fall for anything. Now that’s me.
