Are you listening? I am referring to what people are saying about you. No, seriously, are you really listening to what people are saying about you. What if I told you not to be so quick to “shrug off” what people are saying about you? This is how you can discover new things about yourself.
Often times, we are told not to worry or listen to what people are saying about us. I believe that statement to a certain extent. There are certain things that people see in us that we do not realize. People view us from a different perspective, which means they will notice gifts, talents and skills that we never knew we possess. Sometimes, it may be something about our behavior or personality that we need to improve on. All I am saying is to think about what people are constantly saying throughout each day. Make a mental note of the patterns and the consistency of what people are noticing. Some people are probably highlighting your next business idea or exposing your purpose that you been trying to discover.
Do not get carried away, I am not saying to automatically believe what people are saying, just make a mental note. I believe we should listen to people’s thoughts and opinions with a filter. Just because two people said you can sing, does not mean you need to start performing in front of folks. I am sure several people have already given you answers that you have been seeking about yourself but you probably “shrugged it off”. I challenge you to carefully take in what people are noticing about you and understand how you can possibly channel in on it. Here is a list of questions that I want you to answer on sheet a paper and then analyze what you wrote. After you are done, you may realize a pattern.
What kind of compliments do you usually receive?
What problems do people want me to help them solve?
What kind of favors do people usually ask for?
What do people often say I’m good, talented or gifted at doing?
