What do your friends really think about you?
It’s been a few weeks now since my last post. So much has happened which I will share in due time. I’ve celebrated my birthday, completed my 12th mission trip and a bunch of other things I can’t quite share yet. Keep an eye out on my socials for special announcements @mikeomoniyics
As we race toward the end of the year, I want to encourage you to take stock. This week we are taking stock of our personality.
Have you heard about the Johari Window?
The Johari Window, developed by psychologists Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingham, is a self-awareness and communication model that helps individuals understand their interpersonal relationships. The window is divided into four quadrants, each representing a different aspect of information about oneself:
Open (Arena): This quadrant contains aspects of oneself that are known to both the individual and others. It represents open and transparent communication, fostering trust and understanding in relationships.
Hidden (Facade): Information in this quadrant is known to the individual but not shared with others. It includes private thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Revealing information from this quadrant can deepen connections and build intimacy.
Blind Spot: This quadrant holds information about oneself that others see but the individual is unaware of. Seeking feedback from others can help individuals uncover blind spots, leading to personal growth and improved communication.
Unknown: The unknown quadrant represents aspects of oneself that neither the individual nor others are aware of. It may include untapped potential, repressed memories, or emerging aspects of personality.
Engaging in the Johari Window process is valuable for several reasons. Firstly, it promotes self-awareness by encouraging individuals to reflect on their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. By increasing awareness of one's strengths, weaknesses, and motivations, individuals can make more informed decisions and navigate relationships more effectively.
Secondly, the Johari Window enhances communication skills. Sharing information from the hidden quadrant can lead to more open and authentic interactions. Seeking feedback and acknowledging blind spots contribute to improved understanding and collaboration within teams and relationships.
Lastly, the Johari Window is a tool for personal development. It encourages you to step outside your comfort zone, share more about yourself, and embrace feedback as a means of continuous improvement.

❤️ The Firm By John Grisham
The Firm" by John Grisham follows the story of a young attorney, Mitch McDeere, who is recruited by a prestigious Memphis law firm with a dark secret. As Mitch becomes entangled in the firm's illegal activities, he faces moral dilemmas and the threat of danger.
The novel explores themes of corruption, ethics, and the pursuit of justice in the legal world. It's a gripping legal thriller that keeps readers on the edge of their seats, blending suspense, intrigue, and ethical quandaries in a high-stakes narrative. The book is a compelling exploration of the price of success and the choices one must make in the face of corruption.
I’m looking for 3 people to join my team as I prepare to work on a range of new personal projects next year. You need to be a self-starter, willing to take initiative and very organised to apply. You can through the button below
