There’s been a significant shift in the world of personal development that I’m really excited about.
Until now, most psychology, therapy and personality testing has been focused on how we see ourselves. A “getting to know ourselves” and what makes us tick sort of thing. While that’s valuable and essential at points in life, I’m particularly excited about this shift of considering how the world sees US. I believe that this idea is part of a bigger change of going from ME to WE. Less focus on “me” and who I am and more attention paid to others and how our impact affects others. That’s the “we” part.
When we take into consideration how the world perceives us, hopefully that inspires us to take more responsibility for our impact– good or bad. More often than not, we realize we have a positive impact on people in ways we didn’t know. What comes natural to us is inherently who we are and it’s more difficult to see that in ourselves. So we learn that people see and appreciate some quality in us that we didn’t know.
I love the idea that people see something in us and all we have to do is own it and give the world more of what is natural for us. More of what the world wants from us with ease. More authenticity. More personal accountability.
This is very empowering. We realize we can “move” people. We can affect change. It also keeps us aligned with who we really are. I think this is particularly important in business. It keeps entrepreneurs honest and creates businesses that are more aligned with their leadership instead of “in it for the money”. If you’re not being your true self or holding to the core values of an organization, the world will not respond and reward you with their business. It’s a simple as that.
In my circle of coaches and leadership development, I am seeing a significant shift towards how the world sees us. Expect to see a lot more about this in the future. I personally think this is the way the world is changing and I am really psyched. Somehow the world feels much more unified to me with this idea.
How about I offer a great resource for you to begin to see how the world sees you? One of the finest coaches our there, Sally Hogshead, has created a simple test called The Fascination Test. In just a few minutes with several simple questions you will see what the world finds fascinating about you. You will receive a full report about what the world finds fascinating about you PLUS specific action steps. I have to say that’s one of the things I love about Sally’s work. She doesn’t just give you the results. She also offers you suggestions on how to apply it. I use the Fascination Test all the time in business coaching and it is shockingly accurate. Everyone who has taken it has learned valuable information about themselves. The entrepreneurs I serve can see how this information is applicable in their marketing strategies and serving their clients better.
Because I use The Fascination Test so frequently, I can get a bulk price of just $29. Simply click here to register and pay for your test by May 5th. I’ll order your test and provide you with a link shortly after.
We can learn a lot about ourselves in seeing how the world sees us and be inspired to give our best in return.Affiliate Links: Disclosure of Material Connection: Some of the links in the post above are “affiliate links”.
