Have you heard before in your life that you are good in something by someone who you don’t give too much credit? Did you ever receive any compliments from certain people in your lifetime, and forgot about it because you didn’t believe them, or at the compliment itself?
Then come with me…
Let’s open your eyes for a minute.
Here is what I will teach in this post:
- What you should start analyzing, from good and tiny feedbacks
- What people can deliver to you WITHOUT realizing
- What are the signs that you found a possible path to your greatness
Time to learn some secrets.
FIRST, UNDERSTAND THE BASICS: GOOD AND TINY FEEDBACKS ARE…
Very special and reliable. A trustworthy source of personal feedback. You may not give the proper respect and value for small and positive feedbacks, but the truth is that, they are very special, obvious things, and they are good things that people see in you that you don’t see in YOURSELF!
When someone gives you a simple compliment, like for example:
– “Hey Robert. You are very good with people, do you know that?”
– “Hey Sara! You should start a business with that skill of yours haha”
– “It’s weird how you always do this easily don’t you think? Congratulations”
They are presenting to you the qualities and skills you have, that you MAY be unaware of, or not. It’s from those kinds of comments that you should pay VERY attention because they are NOT fake feedbacks! People usually let it slip the first thing in their minds about one of your particularities, and if that is a good one — and you don’t know about it — then you should raise a RED FLAG!
And what is next?
The next step is….
Stop and process the comment in your head again. Go back in time and think about what that person said about you. Is it true? Do YOU think is it true? CAN it be true?!?! Break into two or more points if necessary and see the whole picture, try to understand why that person said that.
TAKE the comment and filter it through these 3 questions:
- 1. Have I heard this before from another person in the past?
- 2. Does it make sense when I analyze it impartially
- 3. Do I already believe on what that person said about me?
And analyze the answers…
If the first question gives you a YES: Ops! good news! A possible new route to your life.
If the second question gives you a YES: Ops!!! Some good skill or talent may have been uncovered!
If the third question gives you a YES: HEY!!! Why you aren’t doing something about that yet?!?!
And all these points are reinforced because….
PEOPLE PROVIDE IMPARTIAL INFO ABOUT YOURSELF, WHEN THEY GIVE YOU SMALL POSITIVE FEEDBACKS
Impartiality. Objectivity. Social proof. Different perspectives. All of these, are the things that people can provide you, that you not always can offer YOURSELF and can open your eyes about certain points of your personality, your skills, talents and gifts.
The important part here is that you need to understand that even a small compliment from a homeless man should be taken into consideration, because it can point the parts of yourself that people from the outside clearly see, but you don’t. Besides that, when you pay attention to EVERY PEOPLE’S compliments, and pass through the 3 questions that I mentioned above, you can evaluate it in a more objective way, and therefore uncover secrets about yourself that for other people are pretty obvious sometimes.
AND WILL ALL THAT SECRET AND RELIABLE INFORMATION………
You discover that you can pursue a NEW PATH to Greatness!!!!!! Maybe you are sad about your life, your work, your “talents” and skills and you don’t feel happy. Unaccomplished. Unsuccessful. A complete failure.
That person and that other person said I am GOOD teaching people things and giving advice.
More than once, people made a lot of good comments about my writing!
That friend of mine thinks I am very good with dealing with money.
So…what are your possible conclusions?
Maybe you should be working with Coaching?
Or perhaps you should become a Writer?
Or maybe start some investment fund and work with people’s money?
Do you see the consequences of thinking in a smart way, toward simple positive feedbacks? Do you see the difference? Can you see the alternate routes for your life right now? Or do you think the college you made is the only path for your success in life? Or do you still think that the skills you acquired so far, are the only ones you can have?
Understand this my friend:
Did someone make you a compliment? Gave you a positive feedback?
Analyze it, think on the possible routes….and take action.
You will not regret if you believe in yourself and put hard work into it.
The path to your greatness can be something very different of what you are doing today.
