OK, here's a way to look at it:
Your perceptions are your misconceptions.
You open the door, and you see bright sunlight
. You're standing in front of five thousand people
, the arena is at your command. They
are waiting for you to say something inspiring
, something useful
, yet you, percieved to be important
and just so ... 'it', are standing there, in front of all those people and something clicks in your mind.
You are not who they say you are.
as a leader
. Maybe not a 'leader' in a common sense or conventional way of thinking. I'm not here to debate leadership
. But surely enough you are of use
to them. You can guide, direct, insire, influence. How you do that is not important
What you are looking for here is the reason why you are judged to the "That Person
". People who have never met you, never spoken to you seem to like
you? Want to listen
to you? Hmm. Right.
What you do realise is that you're not the person they picture you to be. You're quite far from it. But
... does that matter to them? They perceive you as something that you may never live up to
. Sure, you may fake
it, and perhaps you have been doing that without realising it
for a while, but overall ... Their perceptions are their misconceptions
. And that was not a bunch of pretty buzzwords
