How often do you feel like giving up? Like quitting? Like what you do doesn’t matter? That the effort is too much, the payoff too little?
Received an email today. Compelled to share it. And it wasn’t from a blog conversation, but a LinkedIn connection.
We connected, like people do, and I sent a personal message, like I always try to do, mentioning, “I am selling hope, and it’s free.”
He sent back a reply, which was a little confusing, so I asked for clarification. He said:
“I mean it’s about putting it out there. My dad’s quote (and every dad’s?) – You’ll only get out of life what you put in …Keep selling hope – we all need it.”
Did you catch that? What his Dad always told him?
“You’ll only get out of life what you put in.”
