“The inner world. Other people’s perception of you is a reflection of them; your response to them is an awareness of you.- Roy T. Bennett.
Why is it important to know how others perceive you?
To be aware of who you are at a particular time of your life. Paying attention to what people think of you is awakening to the progress you’ ve made towards your personal goals.
But this awareness is easily created when you know how you perceive yourself.
Forming the habit of being conscious of your thoughts, actions and words helps you realize when someone’s perception is wrong.
What should you do if someone’s perception is wrong? Ignore such a perception. Because paying attention to a wrong perception could deflate your self confidence.
On the other when someone’s perception is right, your self confidence receives a boost. And this is very good for your personal development and growth.
Because according to Sloane Stephens, “When you have confidence, you can do anything.”
