Hi, my name is Amber, and I have the Developer theme. I believe that everyone is a work-in-progress. I'm able to see the potential in people easily and helping people reach their potential really energizes me. I'm always ready to help a friend who's in the midst of overcoming a personal challenge. I really love it when they’re able to do so.
I believe that you only grow or learn something new by overcoming challenges. Because of this, I love to challenge people with little tasks that would allow them to push themselves further. Sometimes all a person really needs to achieve success is someone to encourage and motivate them along the way. I desire to be their encourager.
I like to recognise the progress that people have made. I desire for them to not be content when they could achieve so much more. Witnessing and being a part of people's development fills me with a lot of satisfaction and excitement.
In my life, my Developer theme is apparent in the way that I encourage my friends. For instance, one of my close friends in school used to panic easily. Her anxiety was so strong that she would sometimes feel physically ill. There were instances that she would start to panic and if she was not able to carry out the task assigned in class. I would give her a series of instructions to help her to calm down and asked her to repeat the process until she did not stress out anymore. After a couple of months, I noticed that she was able to keep a cool head in stressful situations. I was extremely proud to see the change in her. Seeing that she was able to grow her confidence filled me with a lot of satisfaction.
For me, an area I hope to grow in is to consistently follow up with someone. I recognise that while a person's initial development really energizes me, I need to develop in the area of following up on their progress. This is especially so if the person I'm investing in requires a lot of motivation and pushing.
As I develop others, I grow myself as well. Each one of us has so much potential. As a Developer, you can count on me to bring out the best in you.
