Well! I was reading through Derek Sivers’ articles and stumbled upon this profound statement… “What’s Obvious To You Is Amazing For Others!!” It got me into thinking…
Have you ever been in awe of someone’s work of art, speech, or expertise on a subject and told yourself, “I never would have thought of that. How do they even come up with that? It’s genius!”? You’re not alone. I often get the same feeling before going for my workshops and webinars.
But, you know what I have noticed every time I finished discussing a topic? It may be obvious and easy for us, but the same content is for sure going to amaze others.
You don’t believe me? Well, try this with anyone sitting beside you (your friends, partner, or your child). Pick up any topic that you think is so obvious, and you think everyone would know about it. Talk about it to the person sitting next to you. I am sure you will amaze them with the information you might have.
So, this is how it works. It’s not the information that connects you to the other human being. It’s YOU. People connect with YOU. Your clients and customers want to have the feeling of learning and knowing from YOU. People will work with you, buy from you, and invest in you.
YOU are the unique factor here, not your information, not your expertise, but YOU.
What’s Obvious To You Is Amazing For Others
Derek Sivers’ statement, “What’s obvious to you is amazing for others,” is an excellent reminder that the things we consider commonplace or take for granted can be profound and fascinating for others. It’s easy to forget that not everyone has the same experiences, knowledge, or perspective as us.
The moment we start thinking that our ideas or knowledge aren’t worth sharing because they’re too obvious or basic, we limit our potential to connect with others and grow our businesses. The truth is, everyone has something unique to offer, no matter how commonplace it may seem to us.
Why You Should Share Your Knowledge
Sharing your knowledge and expertise is crucial for building relationships and establishing yourself as an authority in your field. When you share what you know, you’re offering something of value to others. It shows that you’re generous, confident, and passionate about what you do.
When you share your expertise, you’re also opening yourself up to new opportunities. You may get invitations to speak at events or collaborate with others in your industry. You may also attract new clients who appreciate your knowledge and expertise.
How To Share Your Knowledge
Sharing your knowledge doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. Here are some simple ways you can start sharing your expertise today:
- Write a blog post or article about a topic you’re passionate about.
- Create a video tutorial or webinar about a subject you’re knowledgeable in.
- Share your insights and tips on social media platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, or Instagram.
- Offer a free consultation or coaching session to potential clients.
- Speak at local events or conferences about your area of expertise.
Remember, the more you share your knowledge, the more
YOU are the unique factor here, not your information, not your expertise but YOU…
