Right now I’m selling.
I do it about three times a week, sometimes two times a week…
But I’ve been getting out there each week for about a month now. All I know is that they gave me a two dollar raise to do it. And new clothes.
Plus a name-badge, which really makes me feel official. I heard the voices talking today about how I was official. It kind of made me feel nice. The voices can definitely be a blessing.
But how did I manage to get this job?
Why are they giving me more money, buying me clothes and a name-badge.. engraved… why, why, why….
I think it’s because I pray for sales. My good thoughts are with the company’s sales. I used to work with this guy who blew everyone out of the water in sales, and he said it was because he prayed for sales.
So everyone got an email list from some prayer website and got their prayers delivered to their inboxes.
I’m talking about delivering my own email to people to inspire them to take action. To buy the next book on your path to growth. To get on an email list that’s going to help you. I’m planning to have both in store for you. And I’m also planning on quitting cigarettes because I think that quitting is a good thing.
For now I’m just trying to stick to only one glass of wine a day. I think that’s good for your health. Red wine. A glass a day.
I’ve got a lot of life left in me, I’ve just got to get off the cigarettes and I think I’ll be fine. But I’m keeping this blog! I’m doing my thing! And I’m getting new twitter followers every week. I should easily be able to turn this website, or any other site, into a money machine. And yeah baby, wouldn’t that be “working harder on yourself than you do at your job”-Jim Rohn.
And I say you could do it to. Anyone could do it, everyone has value. And your ideas can go for money! The key to it, at least as far as I can tell, is to build your content up so strong your readers will WANT to buy things from you. Yes, that’s right… I’m talking about making on the internet with information products people can buy that help them improve. I think that would be working very hard on myself…. and sharing value with others. I’ve probably been blogging a year, year and a half on this site, under my name… and it’s changed over time.
It was about schizophrenia, but I didn’t want to limit myself to just my illness, and I wanted to follow my passion, so I started writing things as valuable as I could make them for other people who just wanted to improve their lives..
And if a schizophrenic like me can work on taking over the world with his blog, I think anyone can take the world over with their blog. They can be part of the “it” thing. And if a schizophrenic like me can hold down a job for 30 hours a week, where a two thirds the time is selling, I’d say I’m doing pretty good.
And I hear voices. The truth of it is, sales makes it worse. Or better, it’s better really. Because the voices really are a blessing. And that’s part of my philosophy.
My philosophy is that the more you can count the positive things about your circumstances, the better off you’ll be. Even if it doesn’t look good, make it look good. And don’t complain, your bosses will LOVE you.
