How often do we stop and reflect on how we are viewed by others?
|My books on display|
How often do we stop and contemplate our impact on the world around us?
How often do we stop and ponder or mull over the image we project?
And why is it even important to do so?
Because to be successful in living our lives, unless we are a hermit, we live in the world. Being congruent from our image of ourselves doing our life’s work to seeing that that is what we are projecting into the world takes awareness.
If you are like me, there were times in your childhood and maybe even your early adulthood when you had an experience and said to yourself, “I’ll never do that.”
Today’s first self-awareness question.
What is it you do that someone else stops and says in response (although most likely not out loud and to our face) “I’ll never do that.” “I’ll never treat someone like that.” “I’ll never say anything like that.”
|Silver reminds me of my road manners|
People who know me, know there are issues I’m passionate about. Someone who doesn’t know me may see me as angry when I’m engaged in a discussion on one of those topics. When I realized that people were seeing me as angry, I made some decisions as that’s not how I see myself.
Now I often preface a statement with “I’m really passionate about — and then go on to state my point of view.” I also will end with a bit of humor or insight such as “time to get off my soap box” or maybe “preaching to the choir here” or “sometimes my passion about (insert subject) takes on a life of its own.”
Without the awareness that some people saw me as an angry person, I’d never have made those changes.
Today’s second self-awareness question.
Looking back over your life, what changes have you made because you became aware of how others saw you? Or What changes might you make so people see you as you want to be seen?
