|Do Yourself A Favor|

I use the following story as daily motivation, as any dedicated marketer knows daily marketing tasks can get pretty hum drum. I hope it will be helpful to you!
A poor, hungry young man sat moping on a bridge, watching a group of fisherman.
Looking into a basket and seeing a bunch of fish nearby, the young man said, “Boy,
if I had a mess of fish like that, I’d be in good shape. I’d sell them and buy some
cloths and something to eat.”
“I’ll give you that many fish if you do a small favor for me,” a fisherman replied.
“Tend this line for me awhile. I’ve got some errands to do up the street,” said the
The young man gladly accepted the offer. As he tended the man’s pole, the fish
were really biting, and he reeled in one fish after another. It wasn’t long before
he was smiling, enjoying the activity.
When the older man returned, he said, “I want to give you the fish I promised.
Here, take all the fish you caught. But I also want to give you a piece of advice.
The next time you’re in need, don’t waste time daydreaming and wishing for
what could be. Get busy, cast the line yourself, and make something happen.”
