I recently had the opportunity to exclusively interview Adaire Byerly about five random facts about herself, what advice would she give to her younger self . Plus something people would be surprise to know about her. Check out my interview with Adaire Byerly below:
Loryn: What's a lesson you've learned from being a model?
Adaire: I learned that it is not about you but rather translating the vision the client needs the rest of the world to see. Many people assume that models are the focus because the camera or lights are on them, but in realty models have to be master communicators to reach and influence the audience through a photo or a 15 second commercial with no words.
Loryn: What is the biggest misconception people have when it comes to human behavior?
Adaire: The largest misconception is that other people or situations make us feel certain things or respond a certain way. The “I did this because they did this” mentality. People and situations can remind your brain and body of a similar experience you had that had a negative association, but unfortunately that is as far as the blame can go. Our emotions start in our brain and produce sensations in our entire body before we even have an outward behavior. This means that no one “makes” you do anything, only you do.
Loryn: What advice would you give to your younger self?
Adaire: I would tell myself you are enough, worthy and you have everything you need for what you are going to go through. I would also tell myself to walk away from situations that disturb your peace and do not second guess it.
Loryn: What advice do you have for people navigating the workforce during the pandemic?
Adaire: I always say to find the positives without lying to yourself. I think everyone has been forced to acknowledge that this pandemic has caused much confusion and inconvenience. The positive is that it has also forced us to reevaluate the way we have been living our lives and what we have been pursuing. These times have forced us to enhance our communication and to have more empathy for what others may be experiencing. I would challenge anyone not to lose sight of that for others but also for yourself. Be patient, forgiving, understanding, accountable and nurturing of yourself.
Loryn: What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
Adaire: That I rarely ever watch TV. People seem to be surprised when I tell them that. I don’t even own one. Besides my schedule not allowing me to, I actually do not enjoy using my brain cells on the television. It makes me feel lethargic and there is always a transition from watching TV to communicating to the world around you. I used to think I was weird for that until I discovered multiple studies that have shown how TV negatively effects our neural circuits and ability to focus, think clearly, or have quality communication with others.
