Such A Smart Dog!
June and Charles were entertaining some friends in their living room, when Chuck walked in. Chuck is a golden retriever. He is not only very beautiful, he has the nicest disposition and is extremely smart. Chuck was carrying a newspaper in a plastic wrapper in his mouth. June could not help but brag a little as to Chuck's intelligence.
"He is Such A Smart Dog." began June, "He is so clever, he brings us the newspaper, everyday!"
"I wish he wouldn't." mumbled Charles.
Being almost a bit offended, June replied, in a slightly unfriendly tone, "Why not?"
Charles sheepishly answered, "We have never subscribed to the paper."
Yeah, some of us dogs can read, you didn't know that?
He Aims to Please!
My dog, Jack, is mostly pit bull. Pit bulls are very friendly, and they really want to please their master. These traits seem to be instinctual. Another trait is that Jack is extremely territorial. If he sees or hears another dog, his instinct tells him to bark and to defend his territory.
Since every one of my neighbors owns at least one dog, I occasionally stifle Jack's instinctive barking. I let him know that if there are some things that he needs to bark at, otherwise, he is to be quiet. He understands every word, of course. There are times, however, when poor Jack gets caught between his desire to please and his territorial instinct to bark.
I am smiling at this point and here is why. Sometimes, Jack just cannot help but bark, it his instinct, his nature, but he still wants to please me. Being Such A Smart Dog...the result has turned into a quiet suppressed bark...it sounds like a short soft dog cough that he holds in his mouth and it escapes quietly around his teeth.
I give Jack credit for holding in his bark so well, then again, he is Such A Smart Dog.
Your Home Biz and Being A Smart Dog.
If you are perfect for Network Marketing, you bring to the table lots of qualifications and traits that make you an excellent candidate. You are bright and enthusiastic and perhaps you feel that you can do 'better' than your teaching and training. That is a great attitude, but save it for later. Follow the path that you are being shown, it works, and works best when you are teaching it to others.
Do like Jack, stifle, in order to be trainable and coachable. More than once, I have thought silently to myself...'dog cough'...grinned and then made sure that I opened my ears and heart a little wider.
Thank you for reading, my friends, I wish you much success.
