Asking, listening

Monday morning reflection . . .

“… the more confident of their abilities that persons are the less they feel compelled to tell others of their achievement” a quote from Dr. Ben Carson, in his book, “Think Big: Unleashing Your POTENTIAL for EXCELLENCE.”

I know that, but sometimes I forget it.

You see, sometimes I find myself in situations where I feel I have to justify my existence or something I have done or am doing by explaining, who I am and what I am doing with my life, and then I end-up talking too much, or rambling, (yes, just like now) or maybe saying something silly, or well, stupid, and that’s silly, because I’m not stupid.   :-)

How does that happen? 

My perfect life scenario is one in which I go through an entire party or gathering without ever talking about myself. I simply ask and listen, ask and listen.

My perfect life is me doing that forever.  Asking, listening, asking, listening.

So far it hasn’t happened, but I am confident it will, and when it does, I won’t even have to mention it.

Let us know what you are thinking . . .
