Interested vs. Interesting

Because it's relevant.

Here you go:

Of course you’re interesting. There’s something about what you’ve done, what you say, how you show up in the world that’s worthy of interest.

But that doesn’t mean that people are interested.

We each have a noise in our heads, an agenda and something urgent that’s grabbing our attention. And so, the amount of interest you receive (or don’t receive) has little to do with how interesting you are and a lot to do with how the people you seek to serve have organized their priorities long before you got there.
