How do Wisdom and Selling go together?

Welcome to Wisdom Selling. So if you are like me, you are always wanting to learn more. Well here is the deal about selling. It is the desire to exchange something you have, for something of more value to you. You may have an idea, a product, a service which people will want to pay for, allowing you to make a profit. You have to seek out people who might want it, and convince them it is worth the price you are charging. Or like me, you may just have a little wisdom, and are looking for someone who values it enough to want to use it. My value received in return is the joy of your feedback. So, I am selling wisdom. The cost to you, your interest. I want to help others as well. Visit the links page and shop for some good deals. Any profits on money you spend there will be used by Wisdom Selling to support non-profit businesses in developing their strategies.

Time for a change

When you go through significant life changes, you have to take time to look backwards as well as forwards, in order to really learn anything from them.  You can't just say, off to the next thing.  You have to say to yourself, what is it about me that makes me what I am?  Is this a point in my life where I need to make a change?  Has change been thrust upon me, and do I understand why?
We often immediately begin looking for things to change about ourselves, which can create a sense of failure to this point.  However, if we are as observant of ourselves as we have become looking at the 70%, we can begin to wisely discern the difference between failure and fit.  If we do not fit our current circumstances, we have to look first at the root causes.  Is there a problem with my approach, or is there something in my character that affects my behavior in a way that is not compatible with the situation?  Is there a goal I cannot accomplish, or is there a leadership style I cannot relate to? 
All of these factors can weigh in to a need for a change.  However, they are not all bad things.  In fact, they may be God's way of direction to a new and different place. 
Now, that does not mean that you cannot have faults or issues that can force change upon you.  But in the same way the 30% can cause us to question our value, change can do the same if we are not wise and careful.  I am experiencing that right now, and find myself with a strange sense of contentment that comes with being released from a responsibility and not feeling guilty about the change, or afraid of what is next. 
This feeling is what I have been talking about that comes from being able to release the 30% from owning your emotions and confidence.  Take a shot at relating to someone new today and feel the joy of knowing that it is not your failure if there is no connection, just a learning!
