3 Reasons People Aren't Listening to You

Today I'm honored to have my writing featured on the wonderful blog belonging to Alise Wright  Alise has graciously afforded me the chance to share some thoughts with her readers. To get a sense of what Alise (pronounced uh-LEASE) is all about click HERE.

Here's an excerpt of the guest post I wrote for her today:

Sociologists estimate that we are bombarded with more than 5,000 different types of messages every day in the form of news, advertisements, email, social media and plain old conversations. We simply are not equipped to process all that input and a lot of it is simply ignored.

Even meaningful one-on-one conversations with great news can suffer this same fate. At some point, we all experience a situation where we want to share information with someone who doesn’t want to listen. It happens to all of us. It even happens to God......

If you'd like to read the entire piece please swing by Alise's site at after 8am when it goes live, but before you do that be sure to try and win a complete Jon Acuff library here. This contest runs for today and tomorrow - details are below.
