Why Highly Sensitive People Can Draw People To Them Like A Magnet

Why Highly Sensitive People Can Draw People To Them Like A Magnet

There are many advantages of being highly sensitive but one true advantage is the ability to draw people to you and allow them to feel a level of connection with you that they can’t get with other people.

People are able to disclose their true selves to a highly sensitive person and establish solid relationships with them while appreciating their traits and ability to truly be a good friend. With that in mind, here are 6 reasons why highly sensitive people can draw people to them like a magnet:

1. They Are Sensitive To Others’ Emotions

Highly sensitive people are extremely empathetic with the ability to sense emotions in others and act accordingly. They will often notice other people’s emotions before anyone else does and will want to comfort them in some way. This makes highly sensitive people good to have near when you’re not feeling so good or even to share in your good news. Their ability to put themselves in other people’s shoes means they are highly engaged in conversations and show it well. This makes others love talking to them and feel safe in telling them their thoughts and secrets.

2. They Are Able To See Things From A Different Perspective

With the ability to be deep thinkers, chances are highly sensitive people have thought about a lot of things from different angles. This makes them great people to be able to see things from a different perspective from their own without judgement. Whether this is supporting your own perspective or being able to present another angle to your thinking, conversations with highly sensitive people can be a good way to solve problems in a special, empathetic and thought-provoking way.

3. They Persevere

We have people in our lives who help us out greatly but once the problem is over, so is the support. Highly sensitive people are more likely to follow up with you and check in with the past problem to make sure nothing is still worrying or bothering you. This thoughtfulness can provide much needed aftercare that many others forget or don’t think to do. This kind of support draws someone more to a highly sensitive person because they go above and beyond when it might not be obvious to do so.

4. Highly Sensitive People Are Conscientious

Highly sensitive people are unlikely to take any actions that would cause harm or distress to anyone. Since they can be easily distressed, their empathetic tendencies come into play once again and the last thing they would want to do is project those feelings onto anyone else. They are also able to think before they speak and carefully and thoughtfully analyse each situation before acting. Thinking ahead and to the consequences and possible outcome of each problem and situation means they never say or do anything to offend people. This always holds them in high esteem by others and allows people to naturally cherish their friendships.

5. They Don’t Shy Away From Pain

If you find yourself in a painful and emotional situation, many people aren’t able to know what to say or avoid emotional distress altogether but highly sensitive people identify with their own pain on a regular basis and have the experience of how to deal with it. This makes them great people to have as a support network and you know you can easily approach them with difficult life scenarios knowing you won’t be faced with judgement or have them run a mile. Highly sensitive people are experts in this field and offer that perfect shoulder to cry on in your time of need.

6. They Will Cherish You As a Friend

Highly sensitive people don’t take friendships lightly. People who they feel are taking advantage of them or hurt them one time too many, can be cut off quite swiftly. Highly sensitive people cherish the good people in their lives and will do all they can to be a great and supportive friend. In other words, they experience gratitude and appreciation for those who they feel are an asset to their life and this can show in their actions and words, attracting people to them all the more.

Many highly sensitive people are quite introverted making them seemingly quiet to begin with but they will always be the ones with quality relationships because they have the ability to attract long-lasting friendships worth cultivating with investment and effort.

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

How to Motivate People Around You and Inspire Them

If I was a super hero I’d want my super power to be the ability to motivate everyone around me. Think of how many problems you could solve just by being able to motivate people towards their goals. You wouldn’t be frustrated by lazy co-workers. You wouldn’t be mad at your partner for wasting the weekend in front of the TV. Also, the more people around you are motivated toward their dreams, the more you can capitalize off their successes.

Being able to motivate people is key to your success at work, at home, and in the future because no one can achieve anything alone. We all need the help of others.

So, how to motivate people? Here are 7 ways to motivate others even you can do.

1. Listen

Most people start out trying to motivate someone by giving them a lengthy speech, but this rarely works because motivation has to start inside others. The best way to motivate others is to start by listening to what they want to do. Find out what the person’s goals and dreams are. If it’s something you want to encourage, then continue through these steps.

2. Ask Open-Ended Questions

Open-ended questions are the best way to figure out what someone’s dreams are. If you can’t think of anything to ask, start with, “What have you always wanted to do?”

“Why do you want to do that?”

“What makes you so excited about it?”

“How long has that been your dream?”

You need this information the help you with the following steps.

3. Encourage

This is the most important step, because starting a dream is scary. People are so scared they will fail or look stupid, many never try to reach their goals, so this is where you come in. You must encourage them. Say things like, “I think you will be great at that.” Better yet, say, “I think your skills in X will help you succeed.” For example if you have a friend who wants to own a pet store, say, “You are so great with animals, I think you will be excellent at running a pet store.”

4. Ask About What the First Step Will Be

After you’ve encouraged them, find how they will start. If they don’t know, you can make suggestions, but it’s better to let the person figure out the first step themselves so they can be committed to the process.

5. Dream

This is the most fun step, because you can dream about success. Say things like, “Wouldn’t it be cool if your business took off, and you didn’t have to work at that job you hate?” By allowing others to dream, you solidify the motivation in place and connect their dreams to a future reality.

6. Ask How You Can Help

Most of the time, others won’t need anything from you, but it’s always good to offer. Just letting the person know you’re there will help motivate them to start. And, who knows, maybe your skills can help.

7. Follow Up

Periodically, over the course of the next year, ask them how their goal is going. This way you can find out what progress has been made. You may need to do the seven steps again, or they may need motivation in another area of their life.

Final Thoughts

By following these seven steps, you’ll be able to encourage the people around you to achieve their dreams and goals. In return, you’ll be more passionate about getting to your goals, you’ll be surrounded by successful people, and others will want to help you reach your dreams …

Oh, and you’ll become a motivational super hero. Time to get a cape!
