How Will They Remember You?

Oct 2011

“People may forget what you said and what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel!” That powerful quote reminds me of inspiring leaders and the emotional connection these men and women had on me and those around me. It encouraged us to give so much more.

On the other hand, I have worked for and with some business psychopaths. They just leave you feeling cheap, mistreated and angry. They say one thing, but can’t stop themselves from “emotionally leaking” and you indirectly pick up their real intention far more powerfully.

I once said to a very manipulative individual, who I was removing from my team “who you are shouts so loudly, that I can’t hear what your saying.”

So my question is “how do you make people feel when you meet them?”

Go out and be authentically yourself and remember the positive ripples that spread across the universe from the way you treat others with respect.

Warm regards Jonathan
