I listened to an Art of Charm podcast today, and the interview was with Michael Burt, the author of Zebras and Cheetahs. He talked about how when we meet someone for the first time, the first two questions are, "What is your name? What do you do?"
Instead of telling someone what you do, set yourself apart and tell them what you believe. I like this idea, because it opens so many more potential possibilities for conversation once you get past the awkwardness of not directly answering the question. The other person gets a better idea of who you are and what you're about when you answer it like that.
It also makes us stop and think about what it is we believe in. If someone were to ask you that question, how would you answer it? I've been thinking about it, and I think mine would go something like this: "I believe that everyone deserves to have someone in their corner who believes in them wholeheartedly. I'm that person. I believe in assisting with someone's potential to make it a reality. I do that through being the best life coach possible so that the person experiences a life transformation that is long-term success."
Now it's your turn. How would you answer that question?
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
