…today’s secret…Their perception is your reality.
You’re committed to helping those who live a long way from usual. Truly, it’s difficult for them to see what you see.
An old poem…six blind men feeling an elephant to see if they could ‘see it’ in their mind.
“The elephant is like a wall.”
“The elephant is like a spear.”
“The elephant is like a rope.”
“The elephant is like a tree.”
“The elephant is like a fan.”
“The elephant is like a snake.”
In perceptual reality each were correct. What they saw is what they perceived.
Your participants live in their own private, perceptual reality. They see what they see.
Most efforts in persuading people to work and play well with others is somethimes just one blind man urging another blind man to see the elephant as he does.
Please, don’t expect your participants to see the elephant as you do, at least not immediately. Try to see what they see. Seeing the elephant from their perspective will give you something to say to them that might truly be worth hearing.
