I know I'm supposed to be open to what's hard for me. While this isn't hard for me to give, it's hard for me to appreciate that it's a gift.
I'm good at what I do. I work for a relatively new direct sales company, and I have one of the larger teams in the country and have been consistently in the Top Ten in Sales in the country for almost 2 years.
Today was a very work intensive day. I did a portion of the training on two training calls, I sent out a bunch of samples of a new product that I know won't bring me sales, but it brought me joy to give them to some of my facebook fans even if I know that it's not going to bring me anything, and I had one of the leaders on my team call me for moral supprt and tell me after we talked "I knew talking to you would help, I feel so much better". I have a new consultant who's a firecracker who got to do a portion of the training and I got to tell her how proud I am of all she's acheived so far.
Today my gift was doing my job well and helping others to acheive their goals.
