I am a powerful person. How so, you ask? I have the ability to change the way people feel.
Let me explain.
Yesterday, I stopped to fill up the car before heading home. Soon afterward, a man came outside and began emptying the trash cans at the gas pumps. He didn’t seem to be in a good mood. But, being the good Southerner I am, I said hello to him and asked how his day was going.
The man acted surprised, but answered politely in the way us Southerners do.
Of course, I didn’t let up. No way! I kept on talking to him about the weather.
Guess what happened next? That man’s body language went from tense and closed up to relaxed and content, all in a matter of one minute.
And all I had to do was start by saying hello.
See? I told you I was powerful!
But with power, comes responsibility. It’s my responsibility to share my gift with at least one person every day. And, who knows, maybe if I share my power with someone, they will realize that they, too, have the power, and will then share it with someone. And on and on it goes.
What about you? Do YOU have the power?
Well, perhaps you do. But you won’t know for sure until you try it out.
Give it a shot, and report back here with your findings.
