“Good morning! What are you selling today?”
That’s probably not what people ask you every morning, but they could. Whether or not you believe yourself to be a salesperson, you are promoting something every day of your life. So what is it for you?
Try something with me? Listen to yourself today. Take note of how many times you use the words “I, me, my or mine”…and then take note of how many times you mention other subjects.
Are you talking mostly about yourself? your family? your hobbies? your work? your agenda? other people (praise/encouragement)? other people (gossip/anger)? God?
We generally talk most about the things about which we are most passionate. So, what is that for you? WHO is that for you?
Who or what are you promoting today? Make it count.
