It is a rare person who wants to hear want he doesn't want to hear.
Learn to listen. Opportunity could be knocking at your door very softly.
A person hears only what they understand.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

One of the most valuable things we can do to heal one another is listen to each other's stories.
Set up the listening. Prepare who you are talking to for what you want them to hear. Get people to listen as a possibility rather than a problem.
A new lens to look through. Hear the pain in people's speaking. People who have an ear to hear can hear. You will no longer tolerate what you used to tolerate. A second point of reality. Declare a new future. There are no right answers. There is no is. Give people breakdowns. It's the loving thing to do. What's being revealed here? Dogs don't have things wrong. Wrong disempowers people. Upsets indicate a right that's been violated. Notice when you are angry that you are the only one around. The only constant thing is you. Business is made up. It's invented. We invent our world through language. If it really turns you on, you may want to inform your face. There is no right way. A chair is only a chair because we say it's a chair.
When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.
Listening well and answering well is one of the greatest perfections that can be obtained in conversation.

A good listener is usually thinking about something else.
Make sure you have finished speaking before your audience has finished listening.
To be listened to is, generally speaking, a nearly unique experience for most people. It is enormously stimulating. It is small wonder that people who have been demanding all their lives to be heard so often fall speechless when confronted with one who gravely agrees to lend an ear. Man clamors for the freedom to express himself and for knowing that he counts. But once offered these conditions, he becomes frightened.
Murphy, Robert C.
There are people who, instead of listening to what is being said to them, are already listening to what they are going to say themselves.
Never speak of yourself to others; make them talk about themselves instead; therein lies the whole art of pleasing. Everybody knows it, and everyone forgets it.
Goncourt, Edmond and Jules De
When I am getting ready to reason with a man, I spend one-third of my time thinking about myself and what I am going to say and two-thirds about him and what he is going to say.
