“I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.” 

~ Ernest Hemingway

What are you listening to, and are you even aware?

In my latest podcast, I examine the way we inadvertently act as self-censors. We screen in certain types of news, ideas, sounds and insights while screening out others!

If you have never considered how what you listen to impacts your sense of well-being, this is a podcast for you.

In just a few minutes, I share a bit of my own background. I talk about the process of learning how to listen in ways that would empower, rather than depress, my sensibilities and thoughts.

I also talk about an easy-to-do listening exercise that I shared with participants during a recent smoking cessation retreat. If you’re looking to become more aware of what you’re hearing, the exercise will help you become more conscious.

You’ll be better equipped to take inventory of your own thoughts and make positive, intentional choices that bring a sense of authority back to where it belongs – with you!

Finally, listen to our guest Sam Dykstra as he shares what makes him happy from the inside out.
