There are people who easily get influenced by what others say and their decisions are highly affected by this.
Unfortunately what others say is as per their thinking and interest and not to our choice. So if we are influenced by their arguments it is very damaging and loss making proposition to us.
On the contrary there are people who listen to every one but do as per their wisdom and they are the people who are successful in their endeavours.
One has to develop the art of listening but at the same time should have a judgement to analyze what other is talking and how far it is relevant.
If it is relevant it is to be adopted after considering all pros and cons otherwise it is to be rejected in totality.
So in essence we must listen but do not get influenced until unless it is really beneficial to us in some way or another.
Knowledge is power.
