Trust grows through empathy

November 13, 2017 Leave a Comment

 

In Harper Lee’s classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Scout and Jem are influenced by their father Atticus’ message to try to comprehend how other people are feeling. “If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.” This thought process builds empathy, resulting in compassion for others.

As is frequently true, empathy appears simple on the surface, but in actuality is quite difficult to attain.

 In the late 20th century, many were obsessed with introspection. Choosing to focus on looking inside ourselves in order to embrace what our own needs were. We did that so well, that we we neglected to think about the “others.” As a result, a self-absorbed culture grew, only concerned with ‘what’s in it for me.’
Currently, the pendulum is changing directions, and we must really look and listen to the people in our lives.

Influence develops from trust. Trust grows through empathy. Developing your curiosity and passion about people – even strangers – can be a very beneficial way to overcome the fear and ignorance that currently floods societies. All behavior makes more sense from the perspective of the person executing that behavior.

Today’s action: The next time a person’s actions don’t make sense to you, communicate and question until you understand their perspective.

In the heart of conversations about wealth…

November 4, 2017 Leave a Comment

 

In the heart of most conversations about financial or business growth there lies the inherent desire for more. More financial success, more power, more influence, more freedom, more authority.

Successful businesses gain growth by promoting only 1-3 basic effective strategies at a time. Many of us tend to try to complicate what really is basic comprehension of procedures.

One of the vital points I gleaned from colleague and friend Harrison Klein, an EBC board member, is that universally financial success can be viewed as energy – the synergy of people, the transference of money, the growth of careers and businesses. After many years of examining the living greats, Harrison has educated many energized thought leaders on his philosophy – an instinctive way of recognizing internal challenges, and his methods help them discover a new path. Like many techniques, it’s not difficult once you understand.

Today’s Action – Closely look at one of your heroes in business, life, or healing and to try to perceive how they project their energy to others. Then breathe deeply and try to find your own feeling of aliveness in your body. Practice this daily for the next week and rest in that feeling of fulfillment until it becomes centered. Then go about your daily tasks and activities, Watch what starts happening!
