What do You Really Need?
When you think about the traits of success, what thoughts cross your mind?
Perhaps you might focus on things such as leadership and strength. But what about empathy?
The trait of empathy is often underestimated. We don’t always see how being able to understand other people’s situations as an asset. But consider this: when you have empathy, you instinctively understand the needs of others.
Think for a moment how this can lead to success. In some ways, this trait can seem subtle, but as you reach out to fill the needs of those around you, you build intimacy and relationships you might not otherwise make. These relationships can lead to other opportunities, which in turn point to success you might never have encountered otherwise.
Besides, empathy used in this manner makes you a better person overall. How can you lose when you reach out to make the world a better place?
