I believe it’s true that people are attracted to what they see IN us. I also believe it’s true that people are inspired to take action by what we can do FOR them. In other words, if what I see in you is something I want, I am inspired to want you. Hire you. Date you. You get the idea.
What the world sees in you is also up to you. It’s the direct result of your willingness to do deep inner work. The clearer you can get about what you value, what’s important to you, what your life purpose is, and what you “stand for”, the easier it is for others to see it. This is true in business, in personal relationships and in most every area of life.
It’s like clearing away the fog.
There was recently a video trending on social media of the singer Pharrell Williams being interviewed by Oprah. Pharrell broke down sobbing after seeing a compilation of video clips of people from around the world singing his insanely popular song, “Happy”. What struck me was how well Oprah understand exactly what was going on for him. Where the emotions were coming from. She kept saying,”I get it. I get it”. It was more than understanding the emotions.
What Oprah got, and said as much, was that the song took on a life of it’s own because it came from a clear channel. The song is so simple and pure it resonates to people’s “truth” and it’s what people want. They want Happy. Pharrell Williams delivered a message people wanted to hear. Worldwide, people saw in him and the song what they wanted. it’s popularity is astonishing.
That’s why you do the inner work to clear the channels so people can see clearly what you have. What your message is. What’s IN you.
