My wife called me over to sit down her to watch the HBO rendering of Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth. (Click the link for a rview article)
I don't watch TV generally, but she insisted I join her and watch the presentation. My thought was maybe I should get off the computer and spend some "quality" time with her. So I joined her.
As she so often is, she made an exceptional judgment in determining that I would enjoy the show.
I am grateful to her, for the invitation, to HBO, Spike Lee, the executive producer and particularly Mr. Mike Tyson for opening himself up so fully the way he did.
There are two lessons from the show I want to project.
The first is for direct sale marketers, particularly those online. I am one.
I have heard and listened to experts in the industry many times train that what really sells on the Internet is telling stories.
It gives people an opportunity to get to know you intimately and if you are authentic, it gets them to know you authentically. In my judgment, it has to result if not getting people to Know, Like and Trust You, you’ve heard that before if you are a network or online marketer; it has to leave you with at least respecting the person for whom they are.
Mike says privately to the writer of the article noted above, "I don't want this to be a redeeming story. I'm just a human being."
The other lesson is for everyone
I have understood for many years, I think since my brother died after a long history of drug abuse that it is so easy for one to get caught up in a lifestyle that does not work for themselves and many times for others as well. I have also look at my own life and have reminded myself many times how easy I could have gotten caught up in a drug and counter productive social culture that did not serve me and violated the trust people had in me.
The lesson is to not judge another.
We do not have to condone one’s actions, including their beliefs and views on life. We can, however, respect them as people. We all are all living the life we know. I refuse to believe that anyone is intrinsically evil although they may do evil things. An ugly example I sometimes here is telling a child that he or she is bad. No, they may and do have bad behavior at times, but don’t we all as adults.
Any readers hear innocent?
This point is one of the fundamental thoughts that make possible a world community, in my view, that is a world that works for all. I think my last post here explains it well. Go HERE to read it.
I again, invite you to join me on the journey of Creating A World Community as I have defined it. You may begin participating in the conversation HERE or you may START HERE where you will have an opportunity to be empowered in your life financially and personally. I the latter will empower you to elevate your participation the conversation.
