Have you ever watched a movie and seen an actor play a character which simply astounded you? 😲
You watched the actor on screen, and you were struck by how real the actor portrayed the character. You were taken in by their struggle, their pain, and you cried when they cried. You knew it was just a movie, but for a moment in time you saw this actor as nobody else but this character. 👏
How do these actors pull it off? How do they bring these characters to life in such a way? 🤔
I’m not an actor by trade, but I did have some acting roles back when I was in school. And what I learned not only applies to acting, but also to how can better understand others. 👥
🌟 To understand requires you to step outside yourself. 🌟
To better understand others:
📍 We need to acknowledge our common humanity, an understanding we’re all here on this planet making our way through our lives as best as we can.
📍 We need to know what motivates people to do what they do. What drives a person to take certain actions? Are they driven by greed? Revenge? To please others? To be independent?
📍 Perhaps most important, you need to understand yourself. The better you understand yourself, what drives you, your habits, your own self-awareness the better you understand others. And vice versa, if you better understand others, you can also use what you learn to better understand yourself.
