Author of quote is anonymous

Hey have you ever talked to a person or was trying to explain something to a person and they think that you know what you are taking about so they jump to conclusions and start answering what they think that you are saying. You find yourself looking at them with a serious look on your face and ask them did you get the message? What was the point that I was trying to convey to you? They can’t answer the question so you say to them. Could you listen please and then you start re-explaining all over again. Half way through re-explaining you just give up and say never mind you’ll find out someday. This happens because that person was not listening. They were jumping to conclusions and answering what they thought that you were saying. They were not really following the message so they could understand the information within the conversation that could benefit them. I believe that most people miss the message because they don’t believe that the message is for them. They were just listening long enough so they can get a word in. That’s what I think about when I read this quote.

So peace

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.

  1. I’ve had these moments many times. I also think that it, too, has to do with who the message is coming from. People tend to judge the messenger and based on what they personally feel about them, they assume that anything that comes from that person is not worth the attention, or they are already prepared to scrutinize what the person is saying. So, the message is missed and unheard. They have already summed you up and so any wisdom or advice you have to share gets blocked.
