Nothing small – beautiful poem

Those who would be great
Are least of all.

Those who are faithful
In all the little things

There is nothing small
Or unimportant.

When you look upon
With caring and concern,

That is important.

When you inspire another,
When you offer encouragement,

That is important.

Hidden Mystery

Hidden Mystery
By Fred Burks

In the deepest depths of you and me
In the deepest depths of we
Lies the most beautiful jewel
Shining forth eternally

Within that precious jewel
Within that priceless piece of we
Lies a time beyond all time
Lies a place beyond all space

Within that sacred source of radiance
Lies a love beyond all love
Ever so patiently

Waiting for you, waiting for me
Waiting patiently for all to see
The beauty that is you inside of me
The beauty that is me inside of thee

In the deepest depths of you and me
In the deepest depths of we
Lies the love and wisdom
Of all Eternity

Hug Certificate

If I could catch a rainbow
I would do it just for you
and share with you its beauty
On the days you’re feeling blue.

If I could build a mountain
You could call your very own;
A place to find serenity,
A place to be alone.

If I could take your troubles
I would toss them
But all these things I’m finding
are impossible for me.

I cannot build a mountain
Or catch a rail
But let me be what I know best,
A friend who’s always there.

Motivation – For once it’s not about selling

In almost any kind of business, sometimes there is a need to motivate others. (NB: This is as distinct from “motivational programs” which are structured incentive schemes, usually aimed at sales staff to get them to sell more. This is a different area altogether and one which we can look at another time…

The cynics amongst us would probably say that all you need to do to motivate people, is to use sales techniques on them. There might be a bit of truth in that from the point of view that in order to motivate people, you’ve got to show them “what’s in it for them.” However that’s probably where the resemblance ends.

I believe there is a difference between selling people an idea and motivating them to “buy into it.” With motivation you need to focus more on generating and activating desire. That’s not something you necessarily have to do with selling, because in that case you should be selling into a ready-prepared market opportunity. (But that’s straying into marketing issues which we’re not discussing now.)
