Me, Myself and I
So this week has had more ups than downs, and that’s a good thing. I was struggling for the last week and a half and by Tuesday I saw that I lost some focus. It was a nice feeling when I was finally honest with myself. I called my leader and apologized for my lack of focus. I did this because he was still putting his energy into me. I felt that I owed him this apology because I wasted some of it. Now I get to move on.
Reading GS (Greatest Salesman-Og Mandino) this week more than I have before. One part opened up and helped me fix a big mistake I was doing.
I am nature’s greatest miracle.
Vain attempts to imitate others no longer I make. Instead I place my uniqueness on display in the market place. I proclaim it, yea, I sell it. I begin now to accent my differences; hide my similarities. So too I apply this principle to the goods I sell. Salesman and goods, different from all others, and proud of the differences.
I have been imitating the successful people I know and work with. My true self, my uniqueness has been suppressed over that last few years. I started using movements and wording and talking more like others and not like myself. When I heard “do things that successful people do and you will be successful”. Well, I think I took that a little bit out of context (<——–that is sarcasm). It’s not the movements, the way they speak, write, walk, drive..it’s the principles they have. The way they think and react. The work ethics they have, the passion they hold. So, it feels nice to be more ME again. I have a bigger passion, feel more confident and trust in myself so much more now that I can be me.
Keep Moving Forward
