What’s your SUPERpower?

What do you do well? What do you enjoy doing most? What comes easy and natural for you? That’s your SUPERpower!

So what is your SUPERpower?

Did you even know you have one? Well, you do!

Let’s pause for a few moments and think. What do you do well? What do you enjoy doing most? What comes easy and natural for you? What leverages the most significant results for you with minimal inputs? What brings new clients, customers, or patients to you? Why do they seek you out rather than your competitors?

These are your SUPERpowers! They are unique to you. It would be time well spent identifying them, knowing them, and magnifying them through more learning and study.

Remember, you can’t be all things to all people.

Know what you do well and do it. News of your SUPERpower will spread. Your SUPERpowers will attract the others that you seek to serve and need your skills.

Is it possible that what you enjoy pulls you to engage and learn more, making you better in the process while at the same time finding more Joy?

Funny how that happens!

Think Stronger-Know Your Cognitive Biases

A cognitive bias is an error in cognition that arises in a person’s line of reasoning when decision-making is flawed by personal beliefs.

Cognitive Biases affect how we make everyday decisions, big and small as well as how we think about and invest our money and create our wealth.

A cognitive bias is an error in cognition that arises in a person’s line of reasoning when decision-making is flawed by personal beliefs.

When the Bias is unseen by the individual but seen by others, it is a Blind Spot.

The Cure here is recognizing and acknowledging that they exist.  Once you become aware of these Cognitive Biases they are no longer Blind Spots.

Listen to my Podcast to learn about Cognitive Biases.  Let’s see if you recognize any in yourself?!

Blind Spots…What are they? How can we avoid them?

Blind Spots…
Something we all have but are not aware of and can’t see, at least until it is too late!

 

Blind Spots…

Something we all have but are not aware of and can’t see, at least until it is too late!

Why is that?

Once we are aware and see them, they are so very obvious that we can’t but help ask…how did we ever miss that!!

Let’s dig a little deeper.

How is It is possible for one to be confused or unaware of something rather important, like one’s health, relationships, finances, businesses, or family?

The fact that most people don’t know they are missing it doesn’t make it any less of a problem for them; this is the definition of a Blind Spot.

Blind Spots result from our Cognitive Biases of which there are many. Basically, we seek information that reaffirms our opinion or position while discounting and ignoring information to the contrary. We may be too self-confident regarding a topic, or put too much weight and trust on recent successes, forgetting about past troubles and calamities.

Identifying and overcoming Blind Spots and Cognitive Biases can be achieved by reflecting on outcomes of past decisions, seeking others’ viewpoints and perspectives, challenge your viewpoint with critical scrutiny, along with avoiding quick decisions.

So, do you have any Blind Spots?
