People talk about you behind your back.

What do they say?

When you pick up a glass, you leave a mark – a fingerprint. When you meet people, you leave an emotional fingerprint.

What’s your emotional fingerprint?

What does that get people talking about when you are not there?

People usually say nicer things about us than we say to ourselves. We are often our own harshest critic. It helps to understand how others perceive us so we can update our view of ourselves because our view of ourselves has such a massive impact on what we think we can do, and can succeed at.

So ask for feedback on how people perceive you, and the way they feel after encountering your emotional fingerprint.
