NVLLVM EXTAT PROBLEMA QVOD SOLVI NON POTEST
We like to think that this set of Scrabble letters is actually pretty awesome.
If you think of history, out of all the many problems humans have faced as we’ve grown, matured and improved (still growing ma!), we have solved some of the most incredible problems that were once thought impossible.
Need heat and cooked food? BOOM: Fire. Disease a big problem? Hellloooo penicillin. Need to power that iPhone? Thank you, Edison. And the internet solved communication, connectivity and information problems all around the world (…and maybe created some too…).
The point is, almost every problem has a solution, maybe you just haven’t discovered it yet.
SOCIAL CAPITAL: Build a powerful network
Truly feeling empathy for someone is complicated. However, if done correctly and genuinely, it can help build relationships and improve communication. To feel empathy for someone you must stop and attempt to understand what they are going through. For example, if your boss is always in a bad mood, you have two choices. You can get offended and have a strained relationship, or you can attempt to understand that his rudeness is probably born out of being overworked and underappreciated.
You are not excusing his rudeness but instead being empathetic to his situation. Once you realize this, you can attempt to support him by taking on additional responsibilities or letting him know the team appreciates him. By practicing empathy, you have strengthened your relationship and put yourself in a better position to succeed.
Empathy is difficult because we have to try and understand the feelings of someone else. Then, we have to understand why they feel that way and determine if there is anything we can do in support of them. If you can master this and become an empathic person, you will open up new doors of growth, communication, and achievement.
