It's About Being Feisty…
The Monday Motivational Plaque
At times we need to say what is what, and not worry who it may upset. In fact, I read something a few hours ago, by a guy called Clint Butler, which said,
"Seek to alienate people who don’t connect with you. Instead of trying to be a person who blends in. Be completely ok with make people mad at you. I can’t tell you how many times I have deleted a comment or article I have written because I thought it might offend someone. It wasn’t until I understood that if I offended them. Then I probably didn’t want to do business with them anyway. That relationship between us would never have been a good one. So its best they leave offended early on, versus offended after they purchased something from me."
Now that was some quote! It was from his article, http://www.workwithclintbutler.com/marketing/how-to-find-your-tribe/
How often have we done that….?
Oh, don't upset anybody, don't be outspoken, we have to be neutral, be beige….. So, we bend, and break, trying to keep everyone happy, and sometimes you almost achieve that…. as in everyone is happy…
Oh, except you.
50 years ago, we lived in small towns, and we had to make do with who we were around, pretty much. yes, we could move, but tended not to.
Now I can talk to, be friends with, people all over the world. The other day, a few of us got together in a Google hangout. I know where I was, Cardiff, Wales, and I knew that Lesly is new York, or New York state…. Clint was there, not sure exactly where he lives, but it was 20:00 start for Lesly, 01:00 start for me, and 05:00 start fro Clint!
So, if we can do that, today, with our technology, why do we need to be guarded in how we talk? Especially here, on our blogs?
Surely we can find people we like, and who like us, and be able to work together, towards a common goal?
Maybe then, we will feel a little more alive, and be able to be a bit feisty with it too!

Why not print one out? Then put it up on your wall, where you can see it easily, and
often, and see if it helps you too!
