Everything … and I mean everything … is selling. The food you ate for dinner last night came to your table because someone sold something. The fuel you put in your car has to be sold to the gas station and then again to the consumer. The diapers you put on your baby had to be sold to someone or your baby would be diaperless. The list goes on to infinity. Literally.
If someone had told me years ago that I’d be selling anything, I would have laughed uncontrollably. Why? Because a “salesperson” conjures up a vision of the old snake oil salesman. Sadly, some people still think that way. As Zig Ziglar would say, that’s ‘stinkin’ thinkin.’ Zig devoted himself to raising the image of salespeople everywhere. I admire his work and tireless devotion.
Our buddy, Zig, also said “Money isn’t everything, but it is reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.” Until we somehow magically no longer have a need to pay for things, money is still it.
So what did I sell when I began my career in the staffing industry? Peace of mind. The peace of mind that comes with hiring the right employees for the job. It’s what I did for many, many companies. The ripple effect was amazing! The company was delighted and so was the new employee. I made sure of it. Was it challenging at times? Yes. Was it rewarding? Yes, because the rewards outstripped the challenges by a mile.
I’m no longer in the staffing business, but I’m still in the “peace of mind” business. And I absolutely love it. How cool is it to be able to show someone how to bring their standard of living up, providing them with more disposable income and more freedom? In my humble opinion, it just doesn’t get any better than this. I love being able to show people how to lower their financial stress.
Am I selling you something right now? No. Not unless you’re in the market for peace of mind. Fill out the contact form here if that’s what you want.
Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
How do you feel about money? Do you believe it’s a source of energy? Do you believe there’s not enough? Do you believe that only a certain percentage of the world’s population will ever be wealthy? Do you want to be wealthy? Do you believe you deserve to have lots of money? Maybe you grew up like I did with people telling you that “money doesn’t grow on trees.” Or “we can’t afford that.” If you did, then money became that elusive substance reserved for “something special.” Read on …
Have you ever heard of Happy Money? (There’s a book written about this which is available at Amazon for 99 cents if you have a Kindle).
It’s the concept where you take any denomination of bills … ones, fives, twenties, etc., attach a sticky note with your handwritten blessing and leave the money and blessing somewhere so that someone can find your little package.
The theory that what you give out is what you get back is at play here. The universe doesn’t like a vacuum, so the money, energy, love or whatever you give away from yourself creates an empty space for the universe to refill. Some folks believe it comes back ten-fold, a hundred-fold, even a thousand-fold.
Try it. Do whatever you can afford, even if it’s only a dollar. Attach a handwritten blessing from your heart and leave it somewhere where someone else can find it. But don’t hang around and watch to see who picks it up. That’s not your job; leave THAT to the Universe. The right person will get it. And you will have something come to you in return. Remember, abundance doesn’t always come in the form of money. It could be anything, so keep your eyes and ears open.
Let me know how it goes for you if you do it. Namaste’
By the way, this is my 500th post since I started the Regina Chronicles. Should I go for 1,000?
Yep, that’s me! (No, not really). By now you all know I’m not reluctant about blogging. I’ve just been really busy getting Mom prepared to move to a smaller place. She will be 90 next week so it’s a little hard for her to comprehend that she needs to down-size now that Bud has passed. Hubby and I will go over there tomorrow to move some of the boxes from the old unit to the new one. The movers will be there on Thursday. Let the fun begin! Ugh!
I’m just grateful that the retirement community she’s in had a one-bedroom available. Those places make a LOT OF MONEY on our senior citizens. If I told you how much they were overcharging her while Bud was in the rehab center it would curl your hair! I had a little meeting with the general manager yesterday … hmmm. A credit will be given.
But on to better things. We know that Buddy is in a good place so now we have to take care of Mom. I’ll be busy for the next few days but plan to be back in full swing next week. Yeah, Yeah, I know … we’ve all heard that before, right? But you know what John Lennon said … “life is what happens when we’ve made other plans.” Namaste”
Today’s photo is one from when hubby and I went to the nursery. I love the stone statues.
