Alphabet Soup

Alphabet Soup part 2


Many times when trying to explain a concept someone in the past or present has done so with such clarity it is ludicrous not to just pass it on. Tenacity in the words of Sir Winston Churchill; “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never–in nothing, great or small, large or petty–never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” Today and forever; Never give in, Never give in; never, never, never give up.


Yes, become irresistible. Is that even possible you ask? To be irresistible is to be conscious at all times of how we may appear to others, both in look and sound. A friend and mentor, Marshall Sylver, calls it “Pretty Pictures”; being conscious of how you look and carry yourself at all times so if someone took a picture of you anytime, anyplace; it would be a “Pretty Picture.” Many people believe they should not be judged by the way they look, and that may be true, but reality is You Are! Dressing well, a constant comfortable smile, being the first to greet someone, looking people in the eye, asking questions about them and not telling them about “me”, uplifting comments, not gossiping, and good hygiene are good starts. Being irresistible is not getting people to like you; being irresistible is liking and supporting others. People don’t care what you know; they want to know that you care.


No one likes a fake. You are a unique creation of God. No one who has ever walked the planet and no one who will come after you will think, talk, or create like you. Put your uniqueness on display, and be yourself. We like you for who you are, not who you think we want you to be. People don’t care how much you know; they want to know how much you care. Be yourself at all times.
