I remember being a kid in school and wondering just what exactly made the cool kids…cool? Was it their looks, their brains,
their clothes, the clubs they joined? I remember desperately wanting to be liked by them. To me, it was the epitome of love and acceptance. I used to try to copy them by buying the same style of clothes and trying to be good at the stuff I thought they were good at, but it never worked.
I remember doing something similar when I was adult as well. I had the same designer handbags, bought furniture from the “right” stores, went to the same restaurant, and drove the same car. The problem was, I still didn’t feel like “one of them”.
And do you know why? Because I wasn’t “one of them”. I was me. I am me. The thing is, I was trying to be them, because I wasn’t happy as me. Now, I know the more “me” I become, the happier I am.
That doesn’t mean I don’t still study people and wonder what makes them tick. I love to observe human behavior and I have learned how to use it to my advantage and still be me.
When I see someone who has a skill I haven’t been able to master yet, I study their behavior. I observe their mannerisms. I pay attention to their mindset. I look at their energy and I learn what I need to learn so that I can model it. Then, I modify it so that it actually works for me. It’s much more fulfilling and instead of losing myself, it actually adds more of me back into my life.
What have you been trying to master and haven’t yet? Who can you observe and study so that you can learn the basics to achieving it? How can you tweak those behaviors and skills so that you can still achieve mastery without losing yourself?
Just a little something to think about on a Sunday afternoon….
