Make Them Thirsty

It seems to me lately that there are millions of blogs out there now.  It seems to be the "in" thing to do.  Blogging is actually a very cool idea.  Many blogs are very creative, some are highly sought out for with high numbers of followers, and some are plain and simple, and some with just a few followers.  The main point of blogging is to tell someone something you want to say; however, it's up to the author of the blog to catch someone's attention and keep it.

Whether an author has one follower or one million, whether they blog, write a book, a journal or a simple email or Facebook status; to be an author means to have an incredible opportunity to make a difference in someone's life.  So once you have someone's attention, be sure to make it count.

A young Salesperson was disappointed. He had lost an important sale. In discussing the matter with the Sales Manager, the young man shrugged.

"I guess it just proves you can lead a horse to water, but you can not make him drink," he said.

"Son," said the Sales Manager, "let me give you a piece of advice: your job is not to make him drink. It's to make him thirsty."

"The two most important days in your life are the day you were born, and the day you find out why." -Mark Twain
