Passion is your Trump Card


People are more convinced by the depth of your conviction than the height of your logic.

I heard an old story from one of my mentors recently.  It’s about a door to door salesman who is almost done for the day.  He has one more door to knock on.  One more and he can go home.  He can not only be finished for the day, but for the month.  He is…

    In the first part of the story. The girl had befriended the dog 🙂 with a cookie..and when he smelled that made him so happy he rolled…and the salesman..uhu ..he should know that instead of risking into obvious danger..he should have opted for another house..with a cute chu wawa.. where he could have made himself heard.. Use brains..and keep passions for better occasion.. and about conviction..I don’t see any 😉
