Yesterday I had dinner with my uncle and we were suppose to talk about marketing since I am going to be assisting him in that department in his medical office, but instead we talked about me. He wanted to know what was my reality today, this instance, based on the circumstance surrounding me.
So I did - I talked and talked and talked and let my emotions out. All he did was listen, he only gave advice when he felt it was needed:
Life is all about people and the connections you create with them. To ensure that every person you come in contact with you uplift them and make them feel good about themselves. In turn, that will make you feel good about yourself.
Wow! How do you do that, how unselfish is that. He didn't have to care, he could've just went on talking about his marketing needs. Instead he made me feel good and inspired me to do the same in my relationships. At the end of it all he finishes by telling: That is marketing, it starts from within and if I touch and uplift each patient that walks through my door then my marketing in done. I don't think I have been that inspired and that moved in a long time.
How I plan to apply that in my life? To be and live the change I aspire others to be, day in and day out.
