The Other Side of the Pope’s Visit

April 29th, 2008 · 5 Comments

On the flip side of us standing up straight when some important person comes to town: Do other people stand up straight when you come around? Why? Is it because you’re a really powerful person? Or you’re much farther up the totem pole than them? Or just because you’re older?

Or is it because you’re unreachable, untouchable, and maybe holier than thou?

A Touchable Superstar

NBA announcer Kenny Smith said that you have to be a “touchable superstar.” He was talking about Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant and why people didn’t really like him as much as other basketball stars. He’s quiet and keeps to himself; people don’t really know him.

It’s an interesting quote and should make us all think, regardless of what we have or do not have. There are always people watching you.

Here is one quick example: When I first started leading Bible study, I tried coming with all the answers and acting like I knew everything. But nobody was really talking and when they did talk or ask questions, it quickly became obvious that I didn’t know the answers.

Eventually, I realized that instead of my trying to find all the answers, I could let other group members answer their questions. I didn’t have to know all of the answers or be the first one to answer.

By doing this, I opened up and talked about my own questions, concerns, and faults. Other people felt more comfortable to do the same.

So open up, be yourself, and keep it real. You’ll free up other people to do the same. Maybe you’ll even have some real genuine conversations with people and not need any Google Analytics for your life to understand what’s going on with the people around you.
