But Here’s Why

Intuition Was Whispering, "Delete"
Intuition Was Whispering, "Delete"

So how was getting out of bed today? Any better than two days ago?

So, sure, I deleted that email, but here’s why. Every month, that Doctor sends a few emails, and they all sound the same, “Buy my stuff”. But when do these “salespeople” show us their authenticity? When do they show us they’re real, genuine – a person you would trust like a friend?

Um, let’s see, like never.

Sure, it would be easier to unsubscribe from his emails, but hey, when you’re really busy, it’s so much quicker to hit delete.

For an unknown reason on his latest email though, I actually read a good portion and it sounded good. But.

But the realization came that he has never painted an image of who he is in real life.

There has been no real life, in real time.

Is it wrong to want this? To expect it? To consider it a non-negotiable?

Does anyone else crave authenticity, or it just me?

  1. No, it’s not wrong, in my opinion.

    That is why I try to put an emphasis on the face-to-face interaction with my customers. They can buy the same products for the same prices from the comfort of their own homes. But they don’t get to interact with me. And I try to make each interaction personal.

    Does it make the product more effective? Does it change the properties of the product? No. But I believe it adds to the realism of the experience.

  2. David, thank you for being the change you wish to see.

    We can talk about what ought to be done, or we can just get busy doing it.

    Rock on.

  3. I find that being authentic is not as high as making tons of money, at whatever the cost, on many peoples’ daily to do list. And it saddens me. In addition to having a spiritual path, being true and honest are what build a solid core in a person’s life. These concepts are the true in roads to a personal peace.

  4. Patty, the more people I talk to, the less I try to change others, and the more the focus is on finding truth, and then working hard each day to make it look easy.

    Would rather have people be interested in what they say, than in what they hear.

    Anyone can say anything.

    Few, as you say, sadly, can change enough to enjoy authenticity, peace, contentment.
