Empaths display the quality of empathy. According to emotion researchers, empathy and the display of such emotions by empaths is the ability to sense other people’s emotions and be intuitive to know what someone else may be thinking or feeling. This quality is synonymous with success as success is not simply personal but communal. Here is why empaths are more likely to be successful.
1. They are concerned about the success of others
Success cannot be attained without the support and help of others. Empaths do not only focus on their own personal success, they also focus on the success of others. They want other people to be involved and get rewards. When they do this there is a rebounding effect that also triggers their success.
2. They can connect
Their sense of understanding and being in tune with the feelings and emotions of others affords them the opportunity to easily connect with the people around them. Their selfless offers an exchange that pushes others to react to them positively and help them attain their goals.
3. They can activate solutions rather than problems
They can discover and probe matters deeper. Empaths know how to see through us and find why things are going wrong. Rather than dwell on problems empaths seek for answers and possible solutions that will bring success to bear.
4. They can communicate
Empaths know how to communicate clearly and say what needs to be done. They are easily understood just as much as they can understand others. They clearly exude the positivity and clear goals that they need to be achieved.
5. They are not selfish
According to studies, empaths are inclined to helping others. Helping others causes satisfaction and an accomplished spirit that cuts out their own self interested. Such energy to create a better place for others means they are better motivated than most people.
6. They can impact sociably
Empaths want to reach out, something that our society needs and serves the purpose of a better society. They do not see any social, religious or racial divide that will stand in the way of attaining their goals. Actually being able to reach out and connect with people of all sorts helps them to reach their goals.
7. They are unconventional
They do not fit their ideals, values and perceptions into the mainstream approach. They are purpose driven and react to their environment by trying to improve it. Most times they do not have to wait for others to see things their way, they simply craft a pathway from the vision they can behold.
8. They are open
Empaths have a rich imagination. They are free spirited. They love adventure and want to have a taste of the goodness the world has to offer. They are not rigid, but are open to new opportunities and road-maps that will cause the world around them to be more positive driven.
9. They can be great leaders
According to research, managers or leaders who show empathy have employees who report greater happiness and have better health. Since empaths can help their employees reach their personal and career goals, they create a better workplace culture and are better to handle the responsibility of being leaders.
10. They can accept responsibility
At the end of the day empaths are not people pleasers. They just want to have a better environment. Since they are sensitive to the feelings of others they are careful of how they treat them. If they have to apologize or say their “sorry”, they do it and they move on. Empaths can be responsible; they can be apologetic and are self aware. Holding a grudge could be hurting to them and this they know. Thus they can enjoy a personal well being and delight others to be more productive.
