  1. WOW I spent this whole weekend just listening to people talk and talking very little!! what a difference that made. Just hearing people talk and not having to put in my 2 cents……….thanks Casey!!

    • Victor~~ No problem. I want to acknowledge yo for always being so interested taking yourself to the next level! It is awesome to see people that are always interested in growing!

  2. Hi Casey, OK, last one, I have to get so me shut-eye. I always say that God gave us two ears and one mouth: So we do twice as much listening as we do speaking!!

    Often we listen half-way because we are two focused on what WE are going to say.

    Listening is the greatest skill we can teach ourselves.

    Have a great day and thanks for another great post!


    • Jayne~~ I love it! You can post anytime with that kind of wisdom!

  3. This is good to do, not only in sales, but also in real life. When my husband and I are having a disagreement and he starts getting ugly, I completely stop talking and I just listen to him. I let him continue to babble. It’s quite amusing but I don’t say anything and I stay calm. Later on as he reviews the conversation in his head all he remembers is his ignorant rant, and comes back to me sheepishly to talk and or make up. It takes self discipline but it can be done.

  4. Barbs~~ You may have an info product idea on your hands! Do you know how many relationships you could save teaching that strategy? lol

  5. That is like pretty much impossible for me. When my mom is like talking a bunch i have to say something but i’ll try to not thanx for the advice =) lol
