On Occasion Take the Challenge!
Have you been reluctant to take a challenge from another, or to just challenge yourself to see if something can be done to your satisfaction? Today was that type of day on a couple of levels.
The first challenge came from a family member. She "dared" additional family members and I to douse ourselves with a bucket of ice water in support of ALS awareness. On the count of 3, three of us did just that. Of course, it is fortunate that we are visiting the humid and hot east coast while dousing oursevles with ice.
Our second and intriguing challenge is career related. A neighbor's granddaughter will be interviewing for a job with Queen Laifah's organization. The grandmother lamented that her graddaughter lacks experience and that is always the objection thrown out. And then she is soon told the job was given to another. I provided instruction on how to overcome the objection to advance to hearing HIRED!
I advised that the granddaughter should create a two minute story pertaining to that very problem presented in a previous experience. In her story, she should explain that due to her being a quick learner and determined to succeed, she put in the extra time to learn, implement, and ultimately get better than expected results. With excitement in her voice, she should relay what those results were. Doing so makes the objection disappear and the job available for taking. The challenge is on!
Where might you need help or can take a leap of faith into the unknown just in case it might work out to your favor? You have nothing to lose by trying; the only loss is if you don't try because you will never know if it would work or not. Someone I know was bored at work one day but had an idea for an event at the White House. She picked up the phone to inquire. The event will materialize in a few months!
Be of the mindset to have fun with your challenge. As you announce your idea, pass the challenge along to your friends. You just might spread a creative movement and best of all you will soon find the Smooth Sale!
