The Blind Man Beginning to See

About a month ago I attended a seminar on Leadership and Emotional Intelligence. Lynne Alley-Grant, the presenter at the workshop, explained how we have different versions of ourselves. We have our open self which is information about ourselves that we know and others know. We have our hidden self which is information about ourselves that we know but others don’t. We have our blind self which is information about ourselves that others know but we don’t. Finally, we have our unknown self: information about ourselves that neither we nor others know. The unknown self is where we discover our potential.

During the workshop, I became aware of the blind spots that I have about myself. I came to the shocking realization that if there are places that I do not fully know about myself, how am I also blind to others, to the people and situations around me, to God?
We all have blind spots, places where we aren’t seeing what God wants us to see. What kind of “vision” do we need in order to begin to see?
