Today, we’re diving into a topic that’s not only intriguing but also super valuable: what people say about you. You might be wondering, “Why does that even matter?” Well, let me tell you, it’s a lot more important than you might think! Get it right and they’re gonna love you!
Let’s start with a real-life superhero story. Ever heard of Lee Spencer? That’s him on the right in the screengrab. He’s a former Royal Marine and a world record holder who’s now rocking the world as a motivational speaker. In addition, Lee has teamed up with David Mclean, a skilled psychotherapist, to offer some amazing consulting services. But here’s the twist: Lee sees himself as just an ordinary guy who’s done some extraordinary things.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting: Lee’s story isn’t just about his achievements. It’s about his journey and what people say about him. Yes he holds several world records, and yes, he has a distinguished military record having served in Afghanistan and beyond. But it was a much more every-day situation that really showed Lee’s true colours.
While driving on a UK motorway, Lee saw an accident and stopped to help the victims. While saving others, he was himself hit by flying debris, losing a leg, and losing his career in the Royal Marines as a result.
What people say about Lee – like how brave he is, how he never gives up, and how he always stays positive – shapes his reputation. And guess what? That reputation is super valuable, not just to him, but to anyone he works with, including companies.
Imagine having someone like Lee in your team. He brings a boatload of qualities that are gold for any business: resilience, unselfishness, and the ability to stay cheerful even when things get tough. Of course these aren’t just nice words; they’re powerful traits that can help a company stay strong, especially when the market gets all wobbly. And what if everyone in your team was a bit more like Lee? What if everyone tapped into a company culture that’s a bit more unselfish?
Lee and David can help make that happen. They aren’t just talking the talk; they’re walking the walk. Through their consulting services, they show how these qualities can transform a workplace.
Lessons from Lee
We recently spoke to Lee and David to help them clarify what their reputation is so that it’s easier for potential clients to understand the value that they bring. Clearly they’re living proof that what people say about us – our reputation – can be a huge asset. It’s like having a secret weapon that helps us face challenges, inspire others, and adapt to whatever comes our way.
Now, think about this: What do people say about you? It might be different from what you think. But here’s the cool part – understanding and embracing this can totally change the game for you. It’s not just about knowing your strengths; it’s about seeing how others see your strengths and using that to your advantage.
So, whether you’re leading a team, running a business, or just trying to be the best you can be, remember this: what people say about you can be your ticket to success. It’s all about using your reputation as a springboard to achieve amazing things, just like Lee Spencer.
Before you go, ask yourself, “What’s my superpower according to others?” and “How can I use that to make a difference?” Trust me, the answers might just surprise you and open doors you never knew were there!
