I See You:
Exploring How Our Perceptions Affect Our Actions
This book, called “I See You” explores how perceptions you have of other people and yourself, drives how you approach relationships with people that are not like you in some way.
My goal is to use this book to target young people (and really all people) and to inspire them to separate their perceptions and their treatment of others which will ultimately lead to my goal of seeing more unity in society.
3 core ideas
- In order to affect change, we must first seek to understand ourselves
- The world becomes a better place only when individuals seek to understand others
- Trying to fit others into our expectations only widens the gap between people
