I get asked for directions a lot.
Even in countries where I don’t speak the language.
This past month, traveling between France and Spain, I was stopped countless times, by people asking for landmarks, places to go, shop, dine.. and even for my photo or to say hello when they thought I was Salma Hayek (but that’s another story!).
It actually happens a lot, by different people who truly believe I’m her ??♀️.. I don’t really see it; yet I feel super honoured every time it happens.
I used to wonder why people approach me, ask me so many questions, and open up to me so deeply, so fast — until I talked about it with a friend in Barcelona.
He said to me, “you offer a sense of calm + peace to people, and they are attracted to this feeling.”
I think this was the most impactful compliment I’ve ever had, as it’s who I’ve always aspired to be.
Which is, to leave people feeling a little bit better, after we’ve had an encounter together.
And this goes for everything — even at the grocery store with cashiers, I pretty much love to connect. But it’s not something I’ve ever thought about doing, it’s just how I authentically feel spiritually aligned.
This is also WHY I do the work that I do with YUOLOGY, the study of you.
It’s my authentic purpose, and I feel absolutely grateful to be who I am everyday, and to make even a small impact in the lives of people that I get to meet along the way in life.
Have you ever thought about the feeling you want to leave with people?
It’s a pretty powerful question, as it’s said to be the main thing people remember about you.
It’s not how much education you have, money in the bank, or car you drive — it’s the FEELING they have after they meet you.
Now it’s your turn to decide — what kind of impact do you want to make when you meet someone?
This is also a question you discover in YUOLOGY, YuSchool and I’m curious what your answer would be.
