“The greatest sale in the world is to sell yourself to you.”
Last week I wasn’t able to listen to the course webinar until later in the week and then every time I would try to listen to it, I would get interrupted and unable finish. After today’s webinar, I took the time to focus on catching up so that I wouldn’t start the new week from behind and wow, the end of the “hero’s journey” webinar was amazing!
Because I kept getting interrupted, I also didn’t catch the assignment to send an email to answer the question about the “Greatest Salesman” so I didn’t have the opportunity to ponder the answer before finding out what it was. But it was still quite profound! Circling back to last week’s webinar is an important piece of the puzzle for me to move on into Week 18 properly. What I had been convinced of about myself was not who I am but what I had endured. Yes, knowing where we come from and what we have been through is important to an extent, but that doesn’t need to define everything about us as we move forward in life if we are to be happy and successful. So when the question of the week came up “What am I pretending not to know?” there were a lot of possible answers that arose (and I didn’t like most of them). I’m so glad that we can move on to “What would the person I intend to become do next?” Now we can take what we were pretending not to know and change the script as we think about how the person we intend to be would respond in every situation.
There’s a much better future awaiting when we change the questions and our perceptions!
