Opinions Are A Distorted Reflection

Ever since a customer described me as bubbly I’ve been thinking… never good I know!

Then my friend & colleague, Mindy, made one of those startling comments;

“well all that means is compared to HIM you’re bubbly”

WHAM – it hit me, like a cartoon hammer on the head. That is the #1 reason other people’s opinions of us are really none of our business.

What you are actually getting is a comparison between the THINKER & YOU… which is at best 50% about them & 50% about you. More likely it is 100% about them as their feelings are being reflected off you – like a distorted mirror of themselves and not about you at all.

It’s time to stop worrying about what other people think and begin to consider what you think about yourself. If you like what you see in your mental mirror – keep doing what you’re doing. If the image staring back at you isn’t the one you want to see – make some changes.

I know… not really about sales today BUT it kind of is 🙂
