You Made the Headlines!

In 2008 I had to travel back home to take care some family matters, and as I was waiting for my bus at the roundabout, reading a book. I heard a  paperboy selling newspapers "Extra-extra read all about it!" He would scream at the top of his lungs the most gripping news about politics, sports, crime and natural disasters, around the globe. About 15 minutes later, he would pass by again selling the same newspaper with a different headline, and so on, until he sold all his newspapers for the day.

The more dramatic the news the more papers he sold.  I sat there and meditated on his strategy as he was counting his money with a smile on his face, across the street from me. He was determined. He did not give up, even when people turned their heads away from him,  he knew exactly how to attract people's attention.

Not long ago a good friend of mine called me up for some advice about his career, and as we was talking to me, this very story came to mind.  I shared it with him and I asked him to use the same strategy.

If your headline is not selling, change it. You don't need to give up your career, your dream or lifestyle, just use a different approach to capture the attention of your audience.

What are you selling? What is the message you are sending throughout the universe? Are you still using the same headline over and over again?  Change your attitude, change your outlook, knock on different doors.  The universe is waiting for you to change your thoughts.

Once you have changed the energy around you, the blessings and opportunities will show up at your doorstep. If you keep thinking that things will never change for you, then that's exactly how your future it will be.

Everything we are, from the way we walk, the way we talk, and the way we dress came from how we have been taught through the school system, religion, traditions, political points of views, etc. But, we can all choose to accept or reject it.  You have your own free will. The giver of life has so many blessings in store for you on your path, but may just be waiting for you to change your headline.
