What is the connection between a dictionary and several million dollars? And what does that connection have in common with trees, one hundred pennies, and a sincere compliment?
The answer may surprise you, and you will be blown away by real life examples of how little decisions make a huge difference.
Discover how changing your everyday decisions–little decisions–can have a massive effect. This concept touches all facets of life: personal success, self-mastery, overcoming challenges, business success, sales, negotiation, and relationships.
Let me tell you of a little thing that my mom did that made a huge difference. She used to say:
No Matter the Question, Love is the Answer
I had a wonderful mom. She was calm, intelligent and a great listener. She had big, dark brown eyes that seemed to sparkle with love and tenderness even when she wasn’t saying anything. When she spoke, her warm voice and body language accentuated the feeling of love she radiated to me and to others. I remember a phrase she used to say again and again:
You probably guessed it- I draw them the way I see them – and the way my loving mother would want me to draw them.
Why did my mom die? I have asked this question many times. Could it truly be that my mom was right? That no matter the question, love really is the answer?
My mom’s influence, even though she passed away decades ago, is stronger now.
One day recently, I was driving and I knew that I needed to start speaking. I didn’t know how to go forward with it and so I asked around. An experienced speaker told me to speak on sales – which made sense as I have a lot of sales experience.
I truly do know a lot about sales. A lot. I have been featured on Forbes, TV, various business blogs, and podcasts. I know how to train salespeople and I will continue to share my knowledge on that subject.
I also know a lot about how little, everyday choices make all the difference. I know how little things, like just knowing that my mom wanted me to draw trees the way I saw them, is making a massive difference in my life right now. Though I appreciate the experienced speaker’s suggestion that I share my knowledge about sales, I realize that only sharing sales knowledge is like only drawing trees the way the other children did. Because of my mom’s influence, I am not only going to speak about sales. I am going to speak, share, and draw trees, the way I see them.
I’m starting to see how love really is the answer to everything.
Thank you mom.
