What You See is What You Value
When I first got into the sneakers, the first thing I would notice about a person was their shoes. Before, I didn’t care. Now, it was all I saw.
When I got braces, the first thing I would notice about a person was their smile. Before, I didn’t care. Now, it was all I saw.
My first few years of university, I cared about internships. This was the measuring stick I used to judge people. Before university, I knew nothing about internships. Now, it was all I saw.
Nowadays, I don’t care as much about the shoes you’re wearing, your smile, or where you work. Those don’t matter to me anymore. I value curiosity, self-awareness, and creativity. These are the things that I value, which influences how I see others.
What you see is what you value. What you value is who you are. And who you are is who you attract.
