Greatest principles of listening

Two of the greatest principles are:

1. I do not have the power to make anything all better for anybody.

2. I am not responsible for solving the problems of everybody else.

If these two principles are understood and practiced, the pressure is off and you are able to listen completely. That’s when true communication occurs. The next step is to let the other person know you are listening and genuinely care.
