Over the past week or so, I have been sent the link to this Video by Canon Australia a number of times. A powerful video about how people have a preconceived idea of who we are, then we portray that image.
Am I saying don't be rude to your photographer or they will make you look like the A hole you are?........ Mmmm let me hold onto that one!!
If we think people see us as weak, we become weak. If we think they will shut us down or argue with us, we become afraid to speak up. If we think they see us as angry or as aloof, we play that character.
This video is a powerful representation of how different people perceive us based on their preconceived ideas.
How do we change how they see us?
How do we show them who we really are?
The answer is simple, be happy being you.
How you walk in the skin you wear is your choice. Why not embrace it? What other choice do you have?
