Embracing yourself

Here i sharing a very articulated and thoughtful article written by one of my inspirational friend, you can find more at — sandeep joshi’s blog

You will never be the perfect entrepreneur. No matter how hard you work to avoid catastrophes… at some point, disasters will happen. At times, you will look bad, and your reputation will be injured. But, that doesn’t mean you or your company have to suffer long-term repercussions because of it.People are generally more forgiving than they seem. If you are willing to “expose” your weaknesses, your contacts will feel your honesty and sincerity. The harder you try to be the “perfect” small business owner (and hide your errors), the more detached from your contacts you become. And, the more likely they are to mistrust you.Enjoy your imperfections and learn to use them to your advantage!

Here are some steps for embracing your own humanity, and turning “bad” situations into incredible, marketing situations.

Step 1- Laugh at yourself and your mistakes. (Getting upset about the situation won’t fix things. Look at this as an opportunity instead.)

Step 2- Fix the disaster, tenaciously.

Step 3- Offer the injured customers or prospects even more than they expect. (If done properly, these individuals may become your biggest fans.)

Step 4- Use the situation to fix your current systems. (Making a mistake is alright. Repeating that mistake can be devastating.)

Step 5- Freely share these experiences in marketing messages, blogs, webinars, or as a “reason” to have another sale or promotion

I Wanted To Change The World

An Inspirational Short Story with Wisdom
I Wanted To Change The World

By Unknown Monk, 1100 A.D.
When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world.I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation.
When I found I couldn’t change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn’t change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as an old man, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world.”
