You know that feeling when you wake up with butterflies in your stomach? Your head is filled with anticipation, a crippling fear of what may come next on a big day. It could be a test at school, a meeting at the office, or anything else scary you have to do or say. Imagine all the planning time we lose while worrying. If we could turn our fear into excitement, don’t you think we would have better results?
I honestly think people might be more afraid of the audiologist than the dentist, and we don’t cause any kind of pain here. A friend of mine confided to me that he was afraid to be seen in the community wearing hearing aids. Seriously. Afraid of a little hearing aid?
Let’s get excited about better hearing! Imagine yourself living a life of hearing with crystal clarity. Even the “bulkiest” pair we carry, still pretty much disappears behind your ear. We even have a hearing aid that’s so invisible even someone whispering in your ear wouldn’t see it. That same friend of mine is now wearing his hearing aids all over the place. He was so blown away with what a difference it made in his life, that now he tells people they are there… otherwise they would never know!
Lyric Invisible Hearing Aids
I do a lot of networking for my job here at Advanced Audiology… not really just for my job. I mean I actually enjoy being out and sharing how we love to help people hear better. You never know how you could help each other when you first meet new people. Usually these networking events take place where there is a lot of noise and activity going on. That’s great for people with normal hearing. When your hearing is outside the normal range, it proves to be difficult time and again attempting to stay in the conversation. What happens is certain sounds drop from your hearing and usually very gradually over time it becomes more and more noticeable until you can’t ignore it any more. Sounds like F and S get mixed up and that’s where the inappropriate responses come from what you thought you heard … there is a huge difference between “fatter today” and Saturday.
We did a little exercise at a staff meeting to find out what everyone’s favorite sound is. Approximately 30% of us preferred most to hear the laughter or voice of our loved ones. Whether you consider yourself a master networker or a novice, life is about the relationships and conversation we share with our friends and loved ones. While in the networking world relationships need to be created quickly and to do that you can’t afford to not hear clearly. Communication is the key that unlocks the invisible door between 2 people, and you want to make sure you’re able to hold up your end of it by listening as you hear.
We are on a mission to make sure that everyone who needs it is able to get their hearing screened… It’s fast, easy and fun! At Advanced Audiology we will make sure that you are hearing at your optimum best. Give us a call at 661-253-3277 and answer a few questions to see if you qualify for a FREE hearing screening.
