What are you selling?
"Nothing happens until someone sells something to someone." This quote has been around for many, many years. You probably sell something every day, whether you realize it, or not. Sales reps sell manufactured products to consumers. Applicants sell themselves to interviewers. Thinkers sell ideas to others to act on. Speakers sell motivation to their audience. Ministers sell God to a congregation. Parents sell ideas to children. Friends sell friends on movies, restaurants and vacation locations. Leaders look at what they're selling (ideas, motivation, encouragement) with purpose and consistency. What are you selling? Who are you selling to? Are you successfully getting your message out? What can you do to be purposeful in your activity? Will you lead, or follow?
