One question that has helped me in my life is “How is that person amazing?”.
I try to never forget that every person I meet is in some way amazing. Awesome. In some way. I just have to find it. And whenever I search, and I mean really search, I do find it. With some people, their awesome is hidden – beneath shyness, arrogance, lack of confidence, hatred or socially acceptable behavior. But it is always there.At least that is my experience.
But all to often I do forget, and that is when I find people to be less than they really are. And that is my mistake. Luckily I am reminded of people’s inherent amazingness when someone who’s awesome shines very bright. Like the Korean talent in this video (pull out your handkerchief):
I write this post to help me never forget. And to inspire others to search for the awesome in the people they meet, and to let their own shine through. How are you amazing?
